After the Protagonist of the Sadistic Novel Turns Into a Salted Fish!


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

The story is basically about many protagonists in abusive relationships suddenly awakening, abandoning the world of hatred, love, and obsession, and transforming into salted fish.

Story 1: Bai Muxing was a once-in-a-century S-class omega with 100% compatibility with all four S-class alphas in the empire.

In his previous life, despite his achievements, he was treated like a toy by numerous alphas due to his unique glands. Nobody cared about his simple wish to lead an ordinary life. Jealousy and scheming brought him to his death in the chaotic currents of the galaxy.

In this new life, Bai Muxing chose to remove his glands and become an ordinary person. With a considerable pension, he arrived at a farming and ranching planet on the empire’s border, starting a carefree life of farming and retirement.

He also entered into an online relationship with a handsome beta netizen, fulfilling his life-long dream of “marrying an honest person.”

Apart from the minor annoyance of a husband, who clung to him like a child, and Bai Muxing’s occasional worries about his back pain, life was generally ideal.

However, everything changed when a scumbag alpha, who had once harassed him, followed him to the farming and ranching planet. To his surprise, his seemingly honest husband broke the S-class scumbag alpha’s leg barehanded. In the heat of anger, his husband revealed his true form, that of the king of an alien race whom Bai Muxing had once fought on the battlefield.

Bai Muxing: …I’ve been deceived into this marriage!

His husband, disguised as a big lion, lay down and said: Meow, meow, meow.

So I know most people have sworn off this book for its second and third arcs, which is fair since they really weren’t as good as the first, even if all three protagonists technically did end up better off than their previous lives/potential fates. Minor gripe but ... more>>

I don’t appreciate Bai Muxing saying married couples HAVE to have s*x in the first arc either


I will say if you’re reading for decent writing, this novel isn’t a bad choice. I can tolerate dubious relationships up to an extent and this did not cross that line. <<less

Only the first arc was enjoyable other than that both 2nd and 3rd arc left me with bitterness. I should have stopped at 2nd one since the moment MC (Josh dumb met Albert dumber) or that time in third arc moment of that fickle and mentally cooked MC (Su Zhi feeling okay with his ab*ser Xie yi).

I’ve read the first eight chapters and I’m enjoying the story so far. Being that I’m only eight chapters in, it looks like this is going to be a slice-of-life novel with an interesting romance happening.

I’m enjoying the main character, but if you’re looking for a dramatic romance or dramatic action story, this is not one of those stories. Initially the pacing and writing seemed like that of a Japanese slice-of-life novel, except the writing and concept is so much better than the average Japanese slice-of-life novel. Many authors, in... more>> the Japanese slice-of-life genre give the main character a personality of being s*upidly dense and oblivious while stumbling into luck and being OP and things just happen to them. Rather, the main character of this story is making active and strategic choices so far, and the personalities of the main character and the character of what is hinted to be the male lead are justified, and explained.

i just really like the way this was written, and I’m enjoying it. Thanks to the translator for taking this on. <<less

This is not a single story but a series of shorter stories with different MC and ML and different setting and plotlines.

It starts super strong, with a rebirth!MC overturning their dogblooded past and giving no grounds to those who harmed him in his last life. He is going to live a happy life with a ML that loves and respects him and none of them will stop him, dammit! It was very satisfying to read.

The 2nd story is a bit more tropey, but the MC is fairly cute good person... more>> who just wants to avoid a dogblooded prophesied future told to him by a divine scroll. There's little to no drama because he avoids all the red flags and happily goes on his own way. Overall a sweet story with minimum drama.

The 3rd story is when it went downhill. It derails from kicking away scum men to a rebirth!MC who is suddenly ok with accepting an overbearing, overjealous, extremely controlling ML. MC is portrayed as the one with the issues for trying (and failing) to physically fight off the ML when it comes to bedroom matters in his original youth. Consent is a joke because if you're regularly being r*ped and got used to it, it's just regular slightly kinky s*x, right? (Sarcasm)

MC embraces and finds excuses for every red flag. MC blames himself for not caring enough about ML and "fixing" him in his last life. Anyways it's extremely annoying and toxic to read about.

If it had been a dogblooded theme to start with, or even if it was just standalone story under its own title, then I wouldn't care too much because it's within the tropes of the genre. However, when this is supposed to be about a series of MCs who leave behind the potential hurt and ab*se to live a better life with better MLs, what the f*ck is this? MC didn't love ML enough to cure him in the original timeline so he just needs to love ML more this time around to cure him of all his abusive tendencies???

Author completely lost the theme, and so they've lost me. <<less

Just finished the 1st arc and can definitely say this is a really interesting quick transmigration novel. The arcs are with different characters and the couples are so cute. They are well matched and is mostly slice of life with amazing romance. It is logical and refreshes your mind. This story is about the MC having a 2nd chance and the ML loving him deeply.

Don't read this if you want face slapping and revenge because they do happen but it is reasonable and not constantly. This book focuses on romance... more>> and the main couple of each arc.

Will edit this when I finish reading the book! <<less

Honestly the first arc was a very refreshing different type of plot. Very nice to read, it was interesting and also low effort. Perfect as a smooth sailing fluffy plot line. Arc 2 felt like the MC was dumbed down into the typical airhead and ML the groveling simp. Cute fluff but also mindless plot. Antagonist got offed in a single sentence. And there was no connection whatsoever to the previous arc, so these are actually stand alone stories.
