I Ship My Adversary X Me
January 9, 2019
Status: c4
In this period of time where everything is bleak and dark. This story has filled my heart with good feelings. It's like me watching the first episode of Queer Eye.

I first thought that this would be a story where dog blood drama exists and I'd be fed with glass shards but I was wrong. Our leads are the kind of people you'd want to have in your life. Funny but at the same time mature, Wei ge (shou) despite being pitted against by fans against Yiliang (gong) doesn't get carried... more>> away with it, and neither does Yiliang put much stock into what his fans say but he does understand that their (baseless) warnings come from a good place.

The small commentary on stan culture was on point too, a lighthearted criticism of how fans interact (the good and the bad) with their bias, when it comes to our idols we really do end up being way too emotionally invested that sometimes we cross the lines. At the same time Wei ge's innocent thoughts about shipping culture is funny and lighthearted. To quote Wei ge, "

Pray tell, when the entire internet indulges in bickering about the non-existent enmity and hatred between you and your adversary, what does it mean when a minority of them persevere in believing the romance and love that was completely non-existent between you and your adversary? Just what exactly does that mean?

This was a declaration of righteousness and love! This meant that only goodness and beauty existed in their hearts!

So long as everyone devoted a little love, the world would turn into a wonderful place!"

The story isn't done being translated but from these four chapters alone I already know that this would give the same good and warm feelings the same way as Love You 59 seconds.

Therefore I'd recommend this story to readers who like entertainment industry stories without the dog blood drama, or someone who'd like to start reading queer fiction. The translator did a good job and I can feel the amount of care the author has put into writing this light story. <<less

Even though it only has 4 chapters in, so far the story despite having short chapters are still satisfying and fluffy. The interaction between Wirbel and Amelie is very cute and heartwarming. Recommended for people who likes slice of life and heartwarming family stories.

Love You 59 Seconds
May 20, 2017
Status: c37
This is a slow burn novel and the romance isn't really noticeable because it's still showing how characters interact with each other. The comedy is in how these characters interact with each other in game and in real life much in the same way we interact with our online friends and real life friends, where we do dumb harmless funny sh*t, teasing each other and grumbling about acads and life sh*t.

I could definitely say that the writing of the character's relationship and interactions with each other is realistic especially in... more>> gaming. The beauty of this novel is that it takes its time to build-up the romance, and showing us bits and pieces of the world the characters revolve in. They have their flaws but it adds on to the charm since it's realistic. The realism in this novel is handled well, it shows us how people actually communicate and interact in MMOs.

Reading this novel reminded me of my gaming days during RO's Era. It reminded me of the days I chatted with my guild mates, grinded to raise my levels and participating in WoEs and PvP matches. You may not like YAOI but I implore you to give this a chance since the author handles its characters with care and treats the story nicely.

Love You 59 Seconds is recommended for people looking for MMORPG romances, into homoromantic stories, and slow burn development. <<less

I Want To Enjoy A Country Life!

So far, the bits that shows a sad family life pained me but the ones with MC being happy with his life soothes that pain. Recommended for those who like equal amounts of pain and fluffiness.

The plot is really interesting with how it's almost like a reverse bakarina story. Mary tries so hard to be a villainess it's so cute.

It's a cute story, MC-san reminds me of Bakarina but less simple minded and her internal monologues are funny.

While the ML's backstory is tragic (due to the MC) their interaction with each other is cute and amusing.

MC (with a permanently stiff facial muscles) who trolled the author and got a black ML transmigrated to the world of ML due to a doujin and foolishly (accidentally) stealing the lines of the other characters. At the end of each chapter the author shows an excerpt from the "novel" which shows how the appearance of the MC within the novel changed the story thus we are treated to sight of seeing... more>> the progression of the MC's value to the ML.

At the same time we see how foolishly and endearingly oblivious MC is towards the burgeoning feelings of ML. In this novel we have two characters whose EQs are low and yet terribly self-conscious.

This novel is basically the novel version of a well-written fluffy, hurt and comfort self-insert fanfic. <<less

Villain Days
May 13, 2017
Status: c23
The childhood capture targets are annoying but that's just their character flaws moving on Villain Days is differentiates itself from other novels in the same category with the MC not changing into a different person once the memory regained. It's more like the MC reverted back (in the eyes of the capture targets mainly the childhood friends) to his initial state. An introvert.

The reality however is that MC is now being seen for who he really is without his actions being warped. Though naturally people still get the wrong idea... more>> or still believed in the rumors about MC despite that he already has his support group.

There are R18 scenes that are most likely won't be in your taste if you closely examine the psychology stuff behind it but hopefully as the story goes on the flag for R18 scenes won't be disturbing (in a sense).

Villain Days is recommended for people into BL, it has a good plot, a good characterization that makes them more human (not necessarily the good ones but still human) and MC's situation pulls on the heart strings (though that maybe just me who's weak to soft-hearted characters trying their best) <<less

Rebirth on the Doors to the Civil Affairs Bureau
March 27, 2019
Status: Completed
Most novels when doing the sudden marriage trope and rebirth trope usually involves so much drama that leaves the reader emotionally and mentally frustrated. This one doesn't for the very simple reason of Yu Dong not chasing after revenge by harming those who wronged her but instead she chose the other option of dealing with them as they come towards her.

Yu Dong's gentleness and kindness isn't the holy mother type but rather one forged from experiencing the hardships of life. Years of experience molded her allowing her to be kind... more>> and gentle without allowing people to step on her. This makes her quite likable to me, Yu Dong had used her knowledge of the future not for the usual self-gain we see in rebirth novels but rather for something everyone one of us wants; Happiness and Companionship.

At the same time Xia Feng is likable as a male lead and main character because unlike other male leads where they exist to show or highlight the MC, Xia Feng is very much his own character. Grumpy Crab showed how Xia Feng is like without Yu Dong, how he is around his friends and family. The thing that most authors fail to do is to make their characters human while being at the top, this is especially prevalent in modern rebirths where common sense and morals are things we are more familiar with.

Xia Feng's sensibility and maturity endears him to the readers with how he acts towards Yu Dong during and after they got married for his mother's sake. Despite putting his ex in a bind by giving an ultimatum, Grumpy Crab redeems him by showing his acknowledgement that he was in the wrong and accepted his ex breaking up with him. Where other novels would ignore its main characters flaws, Grumpy Crab doesn't and instead acknowledges it, and makes the characters acknowledge their flaws and learn from it.

Befitting from a cast that is filled with adults and young adults.

The beauty of this novel lies not in the romance of Yu Dong and Xia Feng but rather how their relationship with other people, their interaction with society affects their relationship with each other. Xia Feng and Yu Dong reaches a better understanding of their selves and of each other from observing and seeing how the other interacts and treats those around them. Which is how we really judge and learn about those we like.

Xia Feng and Yu Dong's love isn't the burning romance we always dream of but instead that sweet romance that slowly warms our heart. Grumpy Cat perfectly writes the kind of love that is grounded in realism and one we knowingly or unknowingly hope for; a love that understands and warms us from the inside, to quote Yu Dong,

" 'I'm waiting for someone who can put a stop to my loneliness. So that when I listen to sad love songs with them, it won't make me want to cry.' "

Therefore I would recommend this novel for those who need a pick-me-up, an inspiration for love, or simply wanting to take a break from the harshness of reality. Rebirth on the Doors to the Civil Affairs Bureau delivers a soft and warm love story, filled with comedic interactions, and envelopes the readers with gentleness and heartwarming story with each chapter. <<less

A refreshing story. The pacing is nice and MC is very level headed, a reliable type of character.
