I Ship My Adversary X Me

This thing, I very much recommend not reading this in a public place. Read it in the comfort of your home without sitting near anyone especially not near sleeping people.

It's so f*ck*ng fluff that you'll be screaming and throwing nearby things. The MC's embarrassment is the reader's embarrassment.
Most lines you'll just have to stop and scream then move on to the next line only to repeat the same frenzy.

The MC is just so lovably naive constantly making me shout "MC! For once, shut your trap up lest you wanna... more>> be gobbled up whole by the ML!"

This work is just ❤❤❤ <<less

It's amazing how the author wrote it in a steady tragic way. You can't even see a single ray of a happy end. It starts of with a neutral leaning on happy vibe then it just gets more and more depressing as the story progresses.

For those who came here looking for a generic reincarnated into otome game plot (coz honestly I chanced upon this when I was looking for said stories), you might as well steel your heart before reading this.

4.5 for me but really fluff so I gave it a 5.

There isn't much drama and conflict. It mostly focused on MC carving his stones. MC and ML's interactions are really sweet and fluff.

Aside from the vivid description of the carvings, things aren't exactly detailed

Spoiler

Like when he tried to teach or impart his knowledge about carving, the narrative just goes, they see MC carving and suddenly felt they understood something.

[collapse]

The near ending was seriously rushed though that a lot of loopholes were created.
Spoiler

The slow building up of his potential from the start, but then suddenly, towards the end, he just needs to drink wine and everything's solved. Or that peace treaty/ impending war with the Zergs was resolved so easily with a few of the ML's words. Or that motivation of the MC to earn money, by the end he was squandering his savings on a drunken online shopping spree and then (to solve that issue) turns out he co-owns the mining planet. There's a few more but just go read it yourselves.

[collapse]

Translation is super awesome and its MTL friendly if you're a bit impatient like me.

Recommended for light reading. All fluff. Just ignore the loopholes. <<less

The Villain’s Face Slapping Counterattack

Quite a good read. And I'm kinda biased towards the arcs with lots of fighting and actions. It is immersing and it totally showcases the MC's capability for command and action.

Spoiler

especially the zombie arc and kinda a bit of the interstellar one

[collapse]

The interactions between the ML and MC are really sweet and cute (in some arcs)

I do admit though that a lot of arcs are too tedious to read and just pointless. Like you can skip it coz it isn't interesting and it doesn't have any bearing with the final revelation.

Spoiler

especially the arcs that were nearing the end

[collapse]

This is also the reason why I gave it a -1 star.

And the author somehow kinda loves dog blood drama. Some arcs start off with an interesting premise but the conclusion just crashes and burns

Spoiler

there's an arc where his character wanted to be a majorly known pianist and it ends up with assassination with which the circumstances had totally nothing to do with the premise. The author was so caught up with the love rivalry between the MC and original protagonist that the pianist part was just not focused on.

[collapse]

Spoiler

there's also that part in the interstellar arc in which halfway through it became some noon time drama where the original ML, protagonist, and villain are caught up in some love triangle and they all want to kill each other in a love hate relationship. Again, with which has nothing to do with the MC. The MC was literally watching the show in the shadows coz he was "kidnapped" but managed to free himself and so decided to just watch the show on the side

[collapse]

Overall, even though you can't really expect an active vengeful retaliation from the MC (check rhianirory's review for details) and there are a few annoying arcs, this is still a pretty interesting light read. <<less

4.5 for me but since it's quite fun and entertaining to read, I gave it a 5.

This novel is more on the fluff and slice of life kinda feel rather than actual angst and drama. There's no war nor heavy conflict, basically just an easy read.

It focuses more on the MC summoning cute pets and broadcasting it. Heck, even the development of the relationship between the MC and ML weren't that focused on.

The part that irked me a bit was that the ending was kinda meh.

Spoiler

It was about the MC wanting a baby like Da Zhuang (coz he already knew that Zhuang = ML and so wants a baby) but ML doesn't really want to have a child. It's quite funny how distressed he was but still, his opinion was totally disregarded that it felt bad.

[collapse]

Though this novel has a lot of loopholes, it's recommended for those that wants to read something but doesn't really want to rack their brains trying to figure out conspiracy theories within the novel. Just reading it as is given. <<less
