So I MTL till the most recent free chapter (47 at this time) I could find and I love it. It has been a while since I found a good BL to read.

The story is fun, interesting and sometimes a bit spooky.

The supporting characters are really great and don't just show up and then disappear. "Villains", if you can call them that, aren't s*upid and they aren't mean to just be mean and get in the way of the MC though it might seem that way in the beginning. They... more>> have their own goals and once they get to know MC they can have a change of heart.

The MC is amazing. He is definitely the main reason I gave this such a high score. He is laid-back, courageous and is naturally thoughtful/kind to everyone but he isn't the "dumb saint" type. The MC has different views that often conflict with other "players" and it is very interesting to see them dumbfounded at his actions. The MC is a bit OP, but that doesn't mean that everything goes smoothly all the time. I can't say enough about the MC, definitely one of my favorite BL novel characters.

Now the only small complaint I may have is the ML. As the novel is still ongoing (currently 47 chapters I think?) it might be a bit too early to judge. My complaint is not in his personality, but more in the fact that we don't really get to know him much after 44 chapters. This might also be because I am reading the MTL. I just wish I could get to understand him more because as of now I can't even get a good grasp of his personality. Well, one thing that is good so far is that he isn't the common cliché "rapey" ML that I get so tired of reading about (seriously the number of novels I dropped because of disgusting MLs are off the charts). Anyways this small complaint can't even make a dent in my final score and I am sure that we will get to know the ML later in the story.

C.154 update

Still as good. Recommended. Just go read it. It is easy to MTL so what are you waiting for <<less

I have a Chrome tab dedicated to this novel that I refresh usually everyday for the next chapter. So, there's that.

I'd classify this more as a comedic light novel with heavy horror overtones rather than a horror novel with heavy comedic undertones. The reason for this is the MC is rather OP. Well, so is the ML. But anyway, I feel like the key aspect of a horror novel is that there is suspense about survival (even though we usually know the MC will not die). But part of the... more>> gag of this novel as well as its appeal is the fact that the Big Boss of all the instances are attracted to the MC so we know that nothing (too) bad will happen. In fact, the suspense usually stems from how MC will escape from these powerful and possessive bosses. Because let's get this out of the way: The MC seems to be straight. His thinking and reactions to ghosts hitting on him is very awkward and pragmatic in terms of completing the mission. Usually I'm not really into "explicitly straight person turning gay just because it's classified BL" buuut

MC seems to have amnesia with regards to ML


so I don't think it's that type of situation.

So that aside, this novel and the MC is refreshing because rather than the MC being OP and kind, the MC is OP because he is kind. Indeed, his stats are superior to everybody else, but if it wasn't for his kindness, this novel would definitely be more horror where everything (including the boss) would be a big threat and survival would involve the MC being more violent. Furthermore, even though the instances don't pose an existential threat to MC, they still remain interesting in their construction. Tension revolves around the MC and the other players and how they hinder/help him, and also in discovering the background of the instance. It usually develops in ways you don't expect. In the later chapters, the author also ups the intrigue by

making the MC encounter previous ghost bosses who are even more hellbent of keeping him by their side.


Interspersed between the instances are also real world events which is part an overarching mystery plot so there's something to look forward to outside of the MC completing instances and getting stronger. And in everything, there's a lot of funny stuff in general whether it's face-slapping, reactions to the MC, or recurring bits (one of my favorite being a certain cooking-related prop).

You'd think that it'd get boring for a BL novel to have barely shown much info about the ML by chapter 135 but somehow, that's not the case. It seems like a slow-burn but the ride is so enjoyable that I'm very ambivalent. It's just another question that you want to learn the answer to as everything unfolds. That is, there's more to soak in besides the romance plot which is always nice.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. <<less

Just finished reading till the epilogue, hopefully there would be extra chapters.

It's been a long ride since I started reading this as an ongoing story where the updates of latest chapter were at 90. I fell in love with this the first 5 chapters. Honestly speaking I never liked the genre horror for novels but this one was the one thatmade me love horror bl. I never closed the tab for the udpates.

So moving on the the whole story.

MC - the MC is a natural op (which has sense... more>> the further you read) he's made great decisions to integrate into different arcs in the novel making the readers (us) love him so much

Ml- the ML is the most pitiful,

had to distribute his souls to guide the MC and collect his souls so that in the end the MC can kill him since that's the rule and goals of the game system

he's so sweet, since his soul is cut into different parts, everyone has their own personality, character and obsession.

The story

I am really bias to this novel because I love it. It's fluffy, sometimes it will make you cry out of sadness and too much laughter. Even the side characters are lovable. The flow if each arc is great and the further you read, the further the improvement goes up.

The epilogue really made me surprised thou

I never thought of him making a wish to be the administrator of the game, I never even thought of that, I thought he'd wish for something like bring ML back but since our MC is a genius, as an administrator he can directly bring the ML back and do even more amazing stuff

Yeah as you can see I'm reviewing this early (I'm only at chapter 3 lol). Just want to say that I AM REALLY LOVING THIS STORY! I've said many times already even in the translation site 😂

Anyways, this story is a gem (really no joke) even though I'm still in the early chapters (i read the translated ver), I am giving this 5 stars. The MC is such a cutie, he is like a clever cinnamon roll 😂. And I really love how the other characters get stupefied with... more>> his unexpected actions, they're always like "what is he doing?! Does he want to get killed?!".

The ghost is also cute.


The girl ghost in the corridor from chapter 2 is like " what the hell is this guy doing? " And she's the one who felt awkward lol.


Well, unfortunately, the ML is not seen in the early chapters yet (or I just didn't know) so I can't give description about him.

I love the translations and I'm so thankful for translating this gem 😍. I am having the urge to read mtl but will still read the english translation. This is highly recommended and yeah you will love this ~ 😘 <<less

This is one of my favorite humor/supernatural BL and I'm always really impatient for the next chapters, even if I can only read them through MTL (i got a vip membership just for this novel). That being said, it's not listed as horror or suspense on the Chinese website (I'm in the process of reading through the horror genre list atm) and it's creepy at times but not that scary. There's also very little romance, so if you read it as a no cp story you might enjoy it more.

the... more>> MC is clever and kind, but not s*upidly kind and he seems to have some kind of ghost pheromone oozing out of his pores.

every boss in all the copies tries to make him stay and it's not until into the 200s that we see an inkling of the ML (I think) and boy was that a surprise

the MC backstory and past was both surprising and moving and fleshed out his character a lot, but it comes late in the story. The biggest flaws I've found is the author started padding her story in the second half and only updating once or twice a week which is frustrating when she started out with once a day like everyone else. Overall the story is still good and still throwing out surprises. <<less

Synopsis is misleading and offputting, making one disdain the protagonist. Having given it a chance, this protagonist is now one of my absolute favorites. Let me clarify.

I didn't read this one when I first came across it due to the synopsis' line, 'I treated you as an evil spirit, why do you want to hug my thigh?' This made me think this was one of those incompetent but 'charming' protagonists who ignorantly use their cuteness to win the evil-aligned ML over. I find them a bit irritating, so I skipped... more>> it. I ran out of chapters on the other stories I'm currently into, saw the high rating, and thought 'meh, why not give a couple chapters a glance?' I really hate having waited so long.

The synopsis says how the protagonist grew up encountering ghosts before he was pulled into the infinite world of terror, but fails to mention how much of an oddball he's become as a result of his encounters and how lackadaisical he is once inside the instances, or copies. As a nonspoilery example, when a ghostly hand reaches out from a wall to frighten, he reaches out to give it a handshake, thinking that's what it wants. He reminds me a bit of Yoh from Shaman King. He treats ghosts like they're people who just happen to not have to breathe anymore. This means that 'I treated you as an evil spirit' part was incorrect as well. Well, unless we haven't met the male lead yet. Oh, that's another thing.

There has yet to be a confirmed male lead as of chapter 30. That's perfectly fine with me, though. Instead, he

seems to be winning the stilled hearts of many a ghost in every instance, either platonically or romantically, and not all male for once.


Let me think... So far, there's been

the female maid with the broken leg and the big boss one can't look at in the first instance, the dead baby (yikes!) who was shown to be able to grow to 12 years old once absorbing the powers of his murderer the serial killer in the second instance, and the spoiled rich second generation he was guarding and the evil god who eventually possessed spoiled man in the third instance. He also seemed to win over one female compatriot also in his situation in the first instance and a male in the third one.


Such things aren't restricted to when he's in the infinite world of terror, either. He goes back to the real world between instances, though it's hard to tell the difference with as many ghosts as he deals with there.

In the real world, besides his house full of yet unnamed spirits who so far strike me as a tsundere lover (though I'm admittedly biased from the protagonist's world view), he's won over a woman who was killed by a hotel boss. He also won over the living victims of a ghostly cab driver, which is especially funny considering they were a couple and were bullying him. One ran off gratefully and confessed his online slander of the MC while the other, yet another spoiled rich second generation who has ignorantly been haunted all his life, has been hugging his thigh ever since.


Speaking of that guy

it's through him that the MC discovered that instances can occur in reality. When the second generation asked for his help, the MC hears the voice that announces things in the infinite world of terror speak up, saying he's discovered an instance in the real world.

Stories like this have been made numerous times, but I believe this is the first time that's been a possibility.

Anyway, as far as the male lead goes

there's a good chance we haven't met him yet. In fact, I'm perfectly content if there isn't one at all. Watching the MC's shenanigans and winning over the different spirits is what makes this story fun, so his absence doesn't hurt a thing. That said, if he does exist, and if we have met him, I'm torn on it being the third instance's rich second generation (who genuinely fell in love with MC) and the evil god possessing him (who left a permanent mark on the MC that remains after leaving the instance, leading to the feeling that they'll be connected in the future) OR... the spoiled rich second generation who's alive and well in the real world. Yes, I know, he's a meek cannon fodder who's desperately holding onto the MC's thigh, but you have to admit, a weak and seemingly incapable cannon fodder for a ML hasn't been done before from what I've seen. I think it'd be a hilarious twist if that ends up being the case.

A Really amazing story, I managed to mtl till latest chapters. I was attracted by the MC 's quirky kindness from the beginning, it's not the annoying helping bad and good people s*upidly and getting betrayed type. He's able to protect himself well hence he can save others, which causes ghosts and people alike to want to follow him. But etthere are times even at the expense of his life he'd save someone. The copies have very interesting backgrounds, and there's lots of laughs and gags in the interactions of... more>> all the characters.

Spoiler of love interest :


The big boss (Ml?) of every copy mostly have the same attributes so my guess this is 1v1. He sees the unique kindness of MC and finds him interesting... Although it's not the love interest type yet.

There were certain arcs where I thought: "If that was me then I'd surely be dead by that time."

There were also moments when the MC would experience hair raising moments and I would too! Since if you'll think about it, it's like escaping death by the breath of a hair.

... more>> Yes, there's a certain comedic tone in this novel since the interactions between the MC and the characters are really entertaining.

What's really amazing is the ML.

Yes, there was not much romance happening. The romance setting only kicked in once its already on the last arc (?) but since the MC also has unresolved matters, in my own opinion the timing was just right.

Sure, we already get the hint that the certain Boss' of the arcs have feelings for the MC but (my gosh the MC is so numb 😂) I did read a review that the MC was probably straight.

It did seem like that during the course of the story but once the ending was reached and everything turned back to the way as it should be, you'll know that the MC and the ML have long been entangled with each other.

The arcs are really, really nice. I also like the way the MC acts and his perseverance. His past was quite sad but I'm happy that he has attained happiness.

The novel was such a nice ride.

I did think that the ending was quite rushed. I would've loved to see more interactions between the MC and the ML and their daily life.

Plus with some certain cute ghosts.

There were moments when I'd silently scream: "Bring out the cutie little monster!" I get happy whenever I see it. 😂 I'm not sure on what would it's name be once translated but 'Rhubarb' I wanna cuddle you. (I'd probably be literally eaten in a sec. 😂) Still, I want to thank the author for creating this novel and also to our translator/s and editor/s-sama. Please keep up the good work! I wish you good luck and have a good day ahead. <<less

Reading this series is like watching a gory horror movie or reading a scary book while the MC is just jamming along to the pop song "Party in my Head" by SEPTEMBER. There is tragedy, dead people, and nightmarish settings in the haunted landscape all around him, but the MC is just merrily doing his own thing and dancing to his own beat. His kind, cheerful, and optimistic attitude is infectious and seems to fill this horrific story with bubbles of pop music, leaving both his rival characters and the... more>> wicked ghosts confused and bewildered.

I love this MC! This is the MC I have longed to read about in a ghost series! He's not just a naive, generic nice guy. In fact, I would argue that he isn't naive at all. He is calm and diligent, and he just accepts and treats ghosts like the people they once were.

The side characters are great, too. Each of them have has his or her own distinctive personality and undergoes character development in the arcs. They have repeat appearances, too.

The setting is modern day where groups of people go to haunted worlds called Copies to achieve certain objectives or die. The suspense is real for anyone who isn't the MC, and many people die. It's a bit similar to series like Misplacement Game, Game Loading, and Kaleidoscope of Death. However, the ghosts aren't limited to these game-like settings--the MC encounters them on a daily basis in real life, too.

So far, the plot is very interesting and a great read. Strongly recommended! I'm hyped for the next update. <<less

Similar to FoD, I keep wishing that the story will never end. Every copy is honestly good in a way that it will make u laugh, think and sometimes cry/feel sad.

I do recommend this one since the love story between the MC and boss copy/ML does not feel out of place unlike "heartthrob in a horror movie", since Gu Wuji isn't afraid from any ghost/monsters in the first place. Hence, the flow of story is smooth without the comedy/love story part being out place

Probably the downfall are some of the... more>> scenerio/chara that are left behind, eg.

half brother of Cheng Jia, Ning family etc. I don't know what happened to them

I mtl the story until the latest chapter and it's amazing. All I can say is that the story is different from what I expected (in a good way) it's funny, a bit gory, a little scary, heartwarming and unpredictable.

The MC is super awesome.

I know that this is a BL novel and a lot of readers are not into this type of genre but I still recommend for you guys to try this one. It's slow (in romance/relationship), super slow, to the point that until now I still don't know... more>> who's the ML.

I just know that the ML will deffinitely be amazing and NOT human at all.

Thanks guys for translating this awesome novel

Super thumbs up (like)

This is the kind of novel I’ve been needing without knowing it. I find it incredibly amusing to read about the reactions of others as he shakes hands with ghosts and hugs them. I love this intelligent MC who is way stronger than he actually looks, and his kindness. To where I’ve read, the ML hasn’t appeared yet, but he seems sweet, if not overbearing (definitely not human though). The translation is rather stiff and rough in the beginning, but gets much more flexible as it goes on,... more>> so please give this novel a chance! <<less

The summary doesn't do this story justice. The MC transmigrates into a horror story, but since he isn't scared of ghosts at all he just tries to befriend them. And it works! The reactions of the other characters are the most hilarious part.

Overall, if you prefer serious horror this isn't for you, but if your sense of humor runs to silly you'll enjoy it.

If the ending wasn't so rushed and the romance so forced into the last few chapters, I think I'd like this a lot more. Please give our MC/ML relationship more development TT

Even so, the copies are all fantastic and it was a good read until maybe the last two arcs, which become repetitive.

So far, this novel is interesting and entertaining, in a good way.

Despite the fact that the MC is OP, I kind of understand why he is the way he is. If he sees and encounters ghosts, and the only one he can rely on is himself, isn't it obvious that he'll get used to it and even talk to them like they're still alive? And the fact that he's strong despite his appearance and personality only adds comedy to it. The characters completely disregards him as a pretty face and... more>> it's amusing to know what their reaction will be once they see his strength and complete calmness in every situation. His OP-ness doesn't take away the fun, in my opinion. If anything, it only makes each instances funny. So far, I don't know who the ML is but I don't feel like it's really important to me. I don't mind that the story is focused on the instances instead of the ML because it's really fun. His interactions with ghosts are the most entertaining part of the story. Forget the ML, I like how he treats the ghosts, especially those who helps him in the end. <<less

Main character is physically strong, unafraid, and cares about ghosts. Pretty much all of the author's novels are really good. This is not a real horror story though. It's funny and ridiculous.

YES, it's really scary but with the addition of Gu Wu Jin, everything turns out to be a total fluff.

He's not actually an Op-type but he's kind of hmmm.... Kind of OP type but not in the sense of f*cked up. I mean he's very reasonable and I like his character very much. His past really play A f*ckING MASSIVE role on how he became the present him.

He's also a kind hearted youth but not to the point of too much, he just don't discriminate again people and ghost, maybe he just sympthize with them? Probably.

Plot and writing and characters are all A+++. This novel is definitely one of the best ones I've found on this site so far. Though the pace is slow and the romance is almost nonexistent even up to chapter 195 (close to endgame), but don't let that detract you from the quality of this work.

It's consistently entertaining despite the pace, and it doesn't overly rely on humour to pull this off either, with great use of suspense and mystery... I suppose it's more of a mystery novel than horror, with... more>> gay ghost murderers.

Each copy has an NPC that falls in love with MC, as is typical of world hopping novels. Just that instead of the copy's main character or villain or some such, it's the copy's BOSS (known in-universe as the devil of the copy). Also, minor spoiler, though it's in the novel's description on JJWXC, but apparently all of the devils are the same person. It's interesting when you know this and you read up to a point where they encounter each other, especially the ones where


you see the first encounter between two of them, the devil of the first real copy (and the only one who's kissed MC so far) named Cheng Hao and the second devil (a baby MC played with but grew up into a teen after absorbing the powers of his killer) who... isn't named from what I can remember. Cheng Hao wants to take MC's body (in that way, probably, but MC assumes he means possession) and the teen gets jealous. It plays like a typical love triangle between the bad boy and younger brother types with MC in between if you ignore the context. It's so dumb but entertaining.




where MC's in the painting copy (not the mental hospital one, though they're set in the same world) and the first devil, mental hospital devil and current devil meet. One of the other players also starts to develop feelings towards MC as well which makes things messier. The whole situation is the kind where it's super serious but you can't help but want to laugh.


In addition, each copy he enters has at least one other human character he works with, and the closest one (always a dude except for the first copy) oftentimes starts to have ambiguous feelings towards MC. Also, minor spoiler, but MC gets a female body in one of the copies, and has a girl fall for him in that state as well and shooks the guy who invited him into the copy (he even wonders if MC was actually a girl dressed as a guy previously), let alone all the other dudes who think MC's a girl... well, I'm not opposed to making everyone gay for MC.


It's mentioned much later on that the devils can see the soul of the person, so the twin devils likely know MC's a dude in a girl's body. But they'd probably still smash lol


All these suitors but not enough balls to confess to MC, huh?... Though I guess it's understandable when he can get ghosts on his side and sic 'em onto said suitors if they're human. Right, there actually have been characters who confessed to MC, but they're all devils stuck in their copies who want to trap MC and not the nice devils (yes, there are good boyes). There's this one particular character, though... warning: big boy spoiler.


Auston. He's an NPC-turned-pseudo-devil, because the actual devil of his copy was summoned into his "body" though he already died without realising it, just like everyone else on the ship. That isn't the only thing that makes him unique, though. He's a good dude as well... though that's not a big contradiction. The actual contradiction is... probably because he's not a real devil, MC manages to bring him to the real world? I'm not entirely clear. "Romance!", you might rejoice. Nah Auston just becomes MC's ghost army manager. But it's a recent development, so who knows, maybe Auston will actually try to pursue MC after things settle down a bit more. Though, MC's already aware of his feelings but doesn't want to accept them, which gives me mixed feelings. He does think that when he rejects Auston, it should be in a five-star hotel because Auston doesn't deserve anything less lol. A combination of being a young master, protecting MC from attacks through the pocket watch and rowing alone at sea to hide from some kind of existence for who knows how long... yeah, he really deserves all the good things he can get.


tldr; read it for the plot, characters and writing, not the romance, be patient, and you'll have a good time. I've spent too long writing this review. I just love this novel too much.

(@dona, honey, you've barely even scratched the surface at chapter 19, you just need to stick it out to learn more about the game and ML ;D) <<less
