After Being Transported into a Book, I Adopted the Villain


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

When Shen Yu woke up, he had accidentally gone into a ridiculous dog blood novel.

In the novel, he is a poor cannon fodder character:

– dead father and mother

– his fiancée had run away

– he is disabled (in a wheelchair)

– he lives a lonely life in a 20,000-square foot mansion.

Later, in order to compete for the female lead, he died under the opposition.

In order to save his life, Shen Yu had to stay as far away as possible from the leading and supporting roles and concentrate on enjoying the luxury life.

As a result, one day, the servant brought a 10-year-old villain with bruised eyes: “Sir, this is the orphan of Tang’s family.”

Shen Yu: “…”

Shen Yu decided to adopt the small villains and change his fate.

Ten Years Later.

The villain pushed Shen Yu to the corner: “Who is that woman?”

Shen Yu: “… Who do you say?”

The villain: “The woman who seduced you at last night’s banquet! “

Shen Yu: “…”

The villain: “Hehe, I’m going to kill her.”

Shen Yu: “My son… That’s the female lead you forgot by the Lake…”

There were so many things left unexplained. It felt too rushed. And the plot twist can be summed up as: well... that escalated quickly.

It felt so..... unsatisfying. Like what was everything that the MC did for? What happened to the FL and ML of the novel? Why did the orig Shen Yu's ex-fiance suddenly come out of nowhere that there's only 10 chapters left???

Oh well. I guess I didn't put my expectations on the right place.

P.S. I still enjoyed the interactions between the main CP though.

I can see how people might enjoy reading something like this, but the writing and the style just puts me off.

It feels kinda immature, childish. I sort of feel like I'm reading low grade fan-fiction from wattpad.

The characters are shallow, lacking in depth. The descriptions used seem so visceral and intense, disproportionately so, it's off putting. The characters act in such weird and bizarre ways that it's hard to really connect with them as a human.

This has got to be one of the lowest grade stuff I've read here out... more>> of the hundreds of works I've encountered. Shame too because the premise did seem interesting.

Props to the translator for doing a pretty good job, though. <<less

I rated it 5 stars since I considered my overall feeling *laughs* But this novel can easily reach 3.5 or 4 stars.

The MC is okay for me.

In the beginning chapters, I was really entranced and wanted more fluff between the MC and the ML.

... more>> The ML was messed up at first but then as the chapters progress, he's just like a possessive child protecting his lovable toy.

He's really attached to the MC and it's sweet how he decided to stay with the MC no matter what.

Do take note that it almost reached the half of the novel (or even more) before the ML finally reached 18 years old and later 20+ (yes, there are time skips in this novel.)

The romance and the pa pa pa scene were almost at the end of the novel.

Of course, there was also angst in this novel and I found myself getting nervous for the MC but in the end, this novel is a HE.

The only thing that left me unsatisfied was probably the closure towards the problem of the MC. (I mean, idk if that would ever happen to him again.)

MAJOR SPOILER (probably includes the key part of the plot)


The problem was, since the MC decided to take the villain under his wimg, the plot of the book began to change. So when the villain was already 17ish, the MC found out that the people in that world seemed to slowly forget him.

Some were even unable to see him even if the MC is standing in front of them, why is why the MC got frustrated and panicked.

The ML comforted the MC and told him these words (well, somewhat similar to it) : 'You are my world, so fogetting you will be like my whole world collapsing.'

The ML and MC agreed to return to the shrine where the MC and ML once visited because the MC found out that the monk there seemed to know that he was not from that world.

The monk told the MC that he should stay in the temple for a while and unknowingly, 6 months have passed.

The monk told the MC that his meddling caused the MC's problem.

That 'some fates cannot be changed and must follow their destiny'..... something.

So after the MC returned, everything has changed.

It seemed like everything began to follow the plot of the book.

After a few chapters, the ML finally remembers everything and tells the MC that: 'He will never forget. He will remember.', etc.

And then somehow it works. Slowly, they get closer and finally fall in love.


The ending was a bit rushed in my opinion and I was just shocked to find that I've already finished reading the novel. *laughs*

Still, it was a nice ride. <<less

Really enjoyed this but once I took a peak at the raws, it seems the author took a turn and made MC into a clueless, helpless, naive idiot. There are plenty of BL novels with this plot, and I love reading ones with good characters, unfortunately, I lost interest since MC could no longer win against ML once he grew up. ML became a genius teenager and MC a small rabbit who slowly started falling for him. I don´t know if I´ll finish this.

It´s a shame.

This book isn't for me. I've read some with yans* before but this is the first time I read one where the MC is constantly being decieved by the ML. (Somehow calling him ML is weird, cause in my point of the story he's still just a child, though very well in "love".) That's probably why "cute" scenes aren't cute—they're just the MC getting decieved for me.

*I'd call the ML a psychopath (or at least someone close to that in spectrum) not a yandere (cause I feel like those x-deres... more>> things are just 2D tropes) but whatever.

// my ratings go from 'horrible', 'bad', 'ok', 'good' to 'excellent' so don't come for me. <<less

Nice story! The love of ML to MC is cute, and pure. Even if he is possessive, he never force his feelings to MC.

... more>>

they only did it after 4 years cause the ML is scared to hurt MC


MC is very normal and doesn't have special ability nor a golden finger as a transmigrator. He is sweet and caring person.

Sad part of the story


MC was starting to vanish cause he deviate from the plot that affects some people. It is sad that people starts to forget about him and was scared that ML will also forget him. But ML promised that he wont. To avoid being wiped out MC have to hide in a temple so the plot would go back to its own path. When MC got back the company was bankrupt caused by the ML.

So far it's been pretty good. The author spent a lot of time cultivating the feelings of childhood ML for MC. Pretty cute chapters I must say. But, it took almost 50 chapters before ML finally grew up and we got to see their relationship develop more romantically. Which kind of sucks. I did enjoy reading this novel but where I am now (which is like 20+ chapters before finish) the MC is starting to become really annoying because he feels so useless. Now I've kind of lost motivation to... more>> finish MTL because I have a feeling MC isn't going to get any less useless. <<less

Personally I don't really get how other readers can't understand the story, the words was simple and direct the only problem was the grammar but overall we can all agree that translating a novel or manga is hard.

This story was full of plot twists and unexpected, unlike the usual transmigrating stories I have read where I can already predict what will happen.

This is one of my favorite light novels and I can't wait to read more chapters

I hope the translating team has a good blessing and please continue working hard,... more>> fighting!!

love Y'all

I was only on chapter 16 but I could already tell I won't like where the story is going, which is a shame because I was really interested in reading this when I read the synopsis.

The problem I have with the story is that even after knowing the little villain was abused and is going to show some serious psychological problems in the future, the MC doesn't get him a psychiatrist despite his doctor recommending him to do it from day one. You can clearly see how the abused child... more>> develops an unhealthy and obsessive attachment to the MC and the MC indulges the child and pretty much lets him do whatever the hell he wants because MC is too scared to do anything about the little villain. You can totally see how unhealthy this relationship is going to be.

Just no. <<less

The MC Shen Yu transmigrated into a book as a mere cannon fodder. To change his haggard fated he decided to adopte the villian, who was the cause for his doom.

The frame of the plot is interesting, well I love the setting of MC raising ML and they form a unbreakable bond. the translation is splendid. The flow of the story ist not to fast but also not to slow. a good slice of life story without big drama. Low burn Love Story of the MC and the ML, many... more>> fluffy buffly scene.

But..... there are many things that I find strange if you give a little though of it :

- First the age differnts between MC and ML. the first time they met, the MC was in his early 20s and ML was only 11 year old, maybe 9-10 year different. That irretated me a wee bit. well I can overlook that, because and I just blank out the fact that the ML is way more younger than the MC. I imagined him just little bit older.

- The characterise of SY, in original life he was just a simple baker. In book he played a role of shabol hair. Sometime he was discribed as fiersty and had a strong stare, an overpower aura. Where did he get all his strong aura and confidence?

- The way too fast development of ML's obsession with MC. It just actually need 1 week for the ML to develope a strong "love" to MC. With ML character he wouldn't trust anybody so fast.

- ML's action was not reasonable for a 11/12 year old boy.

school plotline. TL plotted to let the girl, who annoyed him to get bullie, till she tried to commit suicide.


- MC 's irretated reaction to ML.... like damn sometime I think he is really dump. and the way the autor tried to vertify his actions make no sence.

bithday scene -.-= wtf..... he just adoped TL for merely 2 month and belive he could change TL's character compledly.


- Sometime MC put himself on high horse that he was ever so noble, but he totally forgeted that he only adoped ML only because his onw and selfish needs. Moreover at the beginning he totally bite on the fact that ML is the villian and alway misstrusted ML -.-.. but later on: "ML is my boy, I would forgive every bad doing of ML" ha?! MC wanted to teach ML morals and how to be a good person, but contrary he actually did nothing like that."

You can see that on how he acted to the actually Protagonist of the book. Firstly he want to carve's a way for a peaceful realtionship between the ML and Protag. but he just mad that worst. he even tried to that. "oh ML don't like Progtag... I don't like him too. " (table flip). Protag did even done someting bad to them.

ML get jealious at Protag. beacuse MC showed some intrest to Progtag. So he self harmed himself and blamed that on the Protag. and MC know that but still done nothing and just conluded that he don't like the Protag.


Hypocrite!!! over judgmentall... think he is always right...... I really don't like his characterise (1, 5/5). I belive he will turn to a typical damsel in distrest kind of Character. dump and always had to be rescued from the ML.

The MC made me lost intrest at the half of the novel. Just finish because want to know how the Autor will wrap this Story. And because the fantatic work of the Translator. <<less

Ok, no. I can’t handle this ML anymore. His attitude is so horrible sometimes that I really can’t stand him. What a shame, I really was looking forward to reading it too!

If you like sociopathic, puppy dog only to MC, sometimes violent ML. Then you’ve come to the right place.

Really not liking this stories ‘MC raising ML since childhood’ thing. Especially since MC saw him as a son. It might have also been implied that he felt weird about him having a puppy crush.... emm.

Didn't read for long, nor do... more>> I ever plan to. <<less

At first, I thought it was a fluffy shallow novel (during the initial child rearing part), but then I realized that the novel was more complicated. The MC is a villain... who kinda manipulates the MC, haha. Instead of the MC being dumb, I'd like to say he's pretty normal, but the villain's too high IQ for him.

I'm honestly glad that the villain's actually a villain. Most authors fail to portray their 'villains' as actually villain-like, especially if it's a young child being adopted by the MC.

It's ok and could've been better if not for the unsatisfactory ending. There were some important aspects that were left unanswered.

But aside from that, it was an enjoyable read. I really like MC and ML's relationship.

So far it's a really good and interesting story, I literally didn't put my phone down until I finished all of the chapters released and I can't wait for the next one!

Although there are a couple of tropes it still managed to peak my interest and the story itself is fascinating.

Also good job with the translating! It's super easy to understand and the whole flow of the story is smooth. Well done

this story had an interesting premise and it could have been really good, but...

idiot MC

ridiculous plot twists

... more>> the Daddy fo-incest trope always makes my skin crawl (though not unexpected in this case, given the title)

on the plus side; I have no problem with the age difference since most of the b-g romances on this site the woman is 18-20 and the man is in his mid 30's, so I think it's hypocritical to be grossed out by a 9 year age difference in this story but be fine with those.

this is not a story for those of us who like our MCs to have a normal IQ and EQ. <<less
