Banished to Another World

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

A miracle doctor is exiled to an alternate savage world and forced to change his scummy ways!

Having thoroughly offended God, Yan Mo’s soul was transmigrated to another world. He quickly understood the cruelty of this world he’s in. The reason he was hit unconscious by someone and brought back to his home, was to be that primitive man’s food reserves in winter. The tribe he is in is a super spartan primitive tribe, the people here only respect two things: Combat power! Fighting ability! The former is the fighting power in battles, the latter is…

……

Examine illness? Chinese medicine? Drink those bitter sandy things? The hell is that? Are you trying to murder our tribe’s warrior? Die!

Plant wheat? Raise pigs and chickens? We are warriors, not s*aves! Die!

Teaching the women to make clothes and cook? Make them soap and perfume? F*ck, he’s actually seducing our women! Die!

You’re a messenger of god? Here to lead us to a better life? Very well. We’ll give you one day, conquer all of our enemies, make them into sl*ves and bring them back. If you can’t, you’re dead!

Yan Mo: “……”

If I had to be honest, the novel is so well-writting and the world building is so expansive. But as I read on, I feel like the morals was getting more convoluted (especially at ch.379). The MC feeing did become more sincere and his moral views does clear up later, particularly in regards to his transactional relationship with the ML, but.....

My personal conspiracy theory: I get serious vibes that the author is glorifying the CCP (China Community Party) and China’s history in general, specifically in medicine since the MC was... more>> a medical doctor and researcher in his past life. I would even go as far as to say that the MC is based off of Mao Ze Dong. The resemblance in the timeline of their lives is just so uncanny (They both were feminists and strong advocators of free love. They both used brainwashing tactics to justify their actions. They both lead a cult like following with lower class population against the upper class populations: the cultural revolution. They were generous to their allies but merciless to any dissenters).

Spoiler

In the novel, you can correspond the tribal ppl to the lower class and the members of civilizations as the upper class.

I saw the first traces of Mao Ze Dong in the 200s when the MC debates with a woman about women’s rights and marriage. Timeline-wise, this could correspond to when Mao Zedong rejected his own arranged marriage at age 14.

In the 200s, the MC is building his base starting with the weakest tribes and gradually accumulates his power so that he eventually absorbs the stronger tribes by force. The tribes that willingly cooperated with the MC, like the White Snake or Merman clans, got the biggest benefits. By the 300s, he sets his sights on established civilizations. When you interchange tribes and civilizations to lower and upper class, doesn’t this sound like the cultural revolution?

Thankfully, the MC doesn’t resort to a massacre due to the system rules. Instead makes use of his OP finger, courtesy of the system, to keep them subdued.

[collapse]

This novel is set in a primitive era in a cultivation world: To be more specific, it set in a transition period between the prehistoric era and early civilization because there are some tribes that are still living a tribal lifestyle, while others groups have well established civilizations. (The MC starts with the former type obviously which is the ML’s tribes). The advancement of the civilization is dependent on the level of their cultivators which are called blood warriors.

When the MC arrives in this world, ***cannibalism, r*pe, and s*avery*** are all accepted practices. Even the victims themselves don’t see it as anything wrong.

The MC is an anti-hero: Although the MC is mildly sympathetic towards the poor living conditions of the natives, he’s not compassionate either. However, he is forced to help them out because of the system. The MC is viciously cunning to the point that he learns how to sift out the loopholes in the system. I have to admit that as much as some of his actions disturbs me, it’s quite a refreshing change to see a transmigrator rebelling against the system.

The system rules is so flawed that the MC outsmarts it in every way: Although the system rules is set up to keep the MC in check, the loopholes in the system allows the MC to take his villainous endeavors to a whole other level. Just look at this segment in ch.379 in which the MC discusses how he brainwash the coolies into accepting their circumstances! Coolies is the term coined by the MC for indentured servants. The MC gets rewarded by the system for banning s*avery, while he uses debt to as a way to entrap ppl. The is the biggest example of how the MC exploits the system’s loopholes:

Spoiler

Snippet from Ch.379

Other tribesmen, more threatening tribesmen, were brought back to the Jiu Yuan for what Yan Mo called brainwashing education.


Yan Mo is less optimistic than Da-da and Yuan Zhan. He knows how powerful the rebellion of the s*ave people will be, and even if it has the stamp of the soul, it will not necessarily be insured that they will be obedient. For this reason, after thinking about it again and again, he found three disciples and Cao Ting and others to speak to them, so that they could take turns to brainwash their coolies.

So there was a stream of words between coolies.

"Priest Da-Ren said that we drink from the same river as they and we are our own people. Although he was not happy that The Moer-Gan, The Huang Jing and The Duo Fei tribe jointly attacked him, he did not want to send us out to other tribes to be s*aves and bullied again. And the ancestral gods do not like their loyal people to become s*aves, so that’s why the Jiu Yuan has no s*aves. You see, we are given to the Jiu Yuan and we much better than if we are given to the other tribes. At least we are just working here as a long-term worker, not really sold as a s*ave for life. "

Minus all the primitive customs I couldnt stomach no matter how I console myself. But all in all this is great. Reminds me of Dr. Stone in a whole different vibe/way.

I just copied the stuff I had already written in NUF

The combination of MC that is the opposite of Holy Mother and a system that's forcing him to do good acts is so funny. I think this is the first time I read about an MC that's tries to outsmart the system. This world is so savage and brutal, but MC is very good at pretending to be pitiful and innocent (except to ML) and quickly adapts to the situations he's thrown into.

I really like how the story isn't one-sided.... more>> It's not just about the MC using future knowledge to impress cave people. He's improving their standard of living, but he can't survive without them. Their skills and knowledge of this world is still better than all of the skills he has from the modern world.

Funny part during chapter 11

Spoiler

MC performs surgery. He has an option to temporarily block the person's pain while he does surgery. Instead, he presses an acupuncture point so that the person can't move and will feel all of the pain of having part of his intestines being cut out for MC's amusement.

System rewards MC for saving him a life then punishes him for torturing someone. That person and his family misunderstand. They think MC is a really good person because they mistakenly thought god was punishing him for saving a person life

When MC does next part of surgery, he obediently numbs that person's pain.

[collapse]

The summary seems only true for the first 15-20 chapters or so. After that, there doesn't seem much fighting and killing until after chapter 300. And, its clarified later that the MC is a prodigy doctor from modern world that was considered to have "godly" skills.

For a chapter, I was worried that the story was going to be about the MC getting more and more skills. But, ML points out that even if MC's has more attack power, he can still be defeated by him. MC also acknowledges to himself that he doesn't have the personality and mindset to become a clan leader. And the story shifts to focusing on how to expand their group and create a new tribe.

Cute part in chapter 59 -
Spoiler

MC temporarily has 9 little buns/children for students from a tribe that he and ML save from goblin monsters. For first lesson, he using rewarding them with hazelnuts as a positive reinforcement to get them into the habit of helping each other instead of older, bigger kids pushing the younger kids around and to have new ideas*. (This is world where the strong rule, so their initial behavior isn't unusual.) At some point, MC pats one of the little buns' head. And all of the kids get super jealous. MC is totally clueless and wonders why patting is better than food. So cute.

* Usually new ideas aren't encouraged because the priest of the each tribe wants to be the only one with special knowledge in order to maintain his power and authority.

[collapse]

A short, rough translation of MC's pov in chapter 188 about love and his relationship with ML.

Spoiler

"Some people love appearances. Others love talent or money. If you say that you love someone, it's only because that person is helpful to you in some way, whether its for family or career. If someone is not only ugly and poor, but also harsh, merciless, greedy, and has many bad habits, would you still fall in love with that person?

If he were to ask Yuan Zhan (ML), are you in love with me? Yuan Zhan would only reply, what is love? He and Yuan Zhan didn't have an affectionate love. Their love was like painfully wanting to die, but also not wanting to. They didn't have the grand sentiment of mutual devotion. But, their relationship was solid and real. Without any chances for refusal, they had slowly joined together into one.

Then, let it just be like that. They both needed each other. They won't discuss their feelings or debt of gratitude coupled with revenge. It would be pretty good if they just continue walking down the road of life like this."

I think that even if the word love doesn't exist in Yuan Zhan's vocabulary yet, through his actions, he has proved again and again that he loves MC. Whether its agreeing to monogamy, or even creepily wanting MC to eat his corpse if he dies, or willing to forsake everyone else if MC wanted to the leave their tribe, proposing marriage, and so on.

[collapse]

I felt like the romance in this story was more meaningful than other BL novels. They feel like partners (which I really like. The story isn't about an OP ML that always helps and protects a weak MC. They're partners who are good at different things.) For a lot of BL/Yaoi novels, if you strip away the ML acting yandere and the MC acting helpless and cute and innocent, there's nothing left of the story. For this novel, if you were to remove the romantic parts between the MC and ML, there's still 95% of an epic story left. Plus, It's a slow burn romance instead of the usual BL novels where MC and ML fall in love early on.

I think the chapters up to the end of the City of Music storyarc was amazing and so unique, but after that..

Spoiler
  1. There was originally minimal face slapping -> There's suddenly ridiculous amounts of face slapping and it continues until the end of the story.
  2. Even though MC and ML are relatively more powerful than other people, they think that they can only use their powers in self-defense, or system will punish MC -> But then, MC successfully figured out how to avoid being punished by system. Every story arc, there's so much build up to try to get everyone to work together to fight the common enemy, but in the end only MC and ML fight.
    Almost every story arc is resolved by MC and ML showing off their powers.
  3. Every time the system gives MC a "reward", there's always a fine print. For example, MC can create a medicine that can bring back a person who died if its within 3 days. But to create the medicine, MC has to use his own flesh and slowly refine into pills -> But then, system gives MC power where he can ask for any type blessing. For example, ML injured a group of people, MC asked for an instantaneous mass group healing without any repercussions.
  4. As their tribes grows in population, various problems comes up. The problems that come up from managing a tribe of 70 primitive people that willing followed MC and ML were very different from trying to incorporate 1000 s*aves into their tribe -> But then, author keeps recycling the same problem and solution. This was the part that disappointment me the most. On the hand, MC acknowledges that his solution is flawed and only works as temporary fix.

At the beginning of the story, there are interesting female characters, who are strong in different ways, but at some point, all of the women introduced are cookie cutter status climbers. Their only aspiration in life is to marry a powerful man and they spent all of their time scheming to do that. MC goes from wanting to create a society where women are equal to men because he doesn't want his children to have a harder time in life just because they're born female to no longer caring about that goal.

I was disappointed when the story stopped being about MC developing primitive society to modern times and focused on MC trying to unify all of the tribes and amassing a giant army to fight the aliens when they invade the planet. It was such a weird change. Around chapter 600, there's an author's note that the story will end before the aliens invade the planet.

I still skimmed through most of the second half the novel because I wanted to read more about the progression in MC and ML's relationship.

I would still rate this novel as a 5 though because the first half of the novel was that amazing and unique and the rest of the novel occasionally has interested parts. I think the author should have split the novel into two books: one before the time skip and one after the time skip. It feels like a different person wrote the part after the time skip, but there's occasionally funny parts and very interesting story arcs in the second half of the novel that reminds me of the earlier chapters.

[collapse]

One of the more interesting story arcs in the second half of the novel
Spoiler

Also, near the end of the novel. When MC is a god-level priest and he's forgotten what it's like to be a helpless s*ave, he considers when would be the most optimal time from him to save a group of s*aves. The system punishes him with falling unconscious and dreaming that he, ML, and their two children are s*aves.

He initially tries to rebel, but he ends up causing ML to suffer a crippling injury and their two children die. After that, for a period of time, he tries to get revenge for them. By the end of this fake lifetime, he realizes how futile all of his attempts were. The actual chapters are way sadder as we see MC slowly losing all hope.

When he wakes up from the dream, he rushes to ML's side and cries in happiness that it was all a dream and that ML is alive. Because MC once again empathizes with the helplessness that s*aves experience, he immediately goes to save the group of s*aves without having any calculating thoughts.

It's one thing to pity or sympathize with weaker characters from a lofty position, but experiencing something that lets the MC empathize with his original beginnings seems unique to me. And, it shows how far he's come from the beginning of the story. He used to internally grumble about helping people and spent time plotting how to avoid being punished by the system and still do what he wanted.

This type of story is my FAVORITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BtAW difference from most transmigrating novels I read:

  • the plot is to survive and thrive in the savage (stone age?) world; hundreds of chapters... which means.. ADVENTURE!!!
  • some aspects of living is simpler than now, other aspects are harder..
  • there are tons of character to care about.. The main character Yan Mo is the driving character of the story, I see him explore and go to places and achieve stuff, and it makes my investment in the story stronger. Even really trivial things makes me excited!
MC... more>> (Yan Mo) has the ability, but he's also so hardworking (this is not spoiler if you read tags.. as you should). It's hard not to root for him! With this many chapters the character growth is not bad, relationships are allowed to grow naturally. Expect betrayals, heartbreaks, old and new love, family, master-disciple (my favorite!!), politics, alliance!

before I started reading Founder of Diabolism I didn't know novels like this, like Banished to Another World existed in danmei too, that handles relationships like this one, and is so serious about research and details in the story. Millions of thanks to the translators, old and new, who let me discover this and continued to share this story with us!!

spoiler about character development and story below

Spoiler

To be honest, I was expecting the characters to slip to stereotypes around 100ish but delighted to find they only grew more. Maybe I speak too soon, but right now it's great. ML Yuan Zhan is a dear puppy. Also nothing against full-on yandere characters, but constantly trapping your lover to be with you all the time always pokes me in that 'this is not alright' spot.. slightly unhealthy and always makes it feel unrequited, forced. Instead, when the main characters spend time away from each other only to come back together again, you feel the inevitability of that pair and you can relish the comfort they feel when they are finally back home.

Yan Mo (again) is so sly and black-bellied but he has to restrain himself because of the system and this duality adds another layer to the relationship between the characters. Although he's supposed to be scum... he really doesn't feel like one, he can sacrifice quite few but it's for good of many, and aren't we all that way to some extent? sometimes you ask yourself if he is reforming slowly or if it's still just the guide..

[collapse]

TL;DR I love Yan Mo with all my soul <<less

The translation is very good and details aren't omitted. In fact, when the MC was doing medical treatment on himself a lot of images came into mind. It was very disturbing but in a very satisfying way. Also, the ML is very simple-minded in the beginning. His thoughts are "Kill, hunt, good for the tribe (?) ". To me, it was very funny that way. There's also a very interesting start where there is a language barrier. That type of beginning makes me so excited for whats to come.

This. This is everything.

I'm adding more rave reviews because this title is so worth it. Highly recommended, one of the best danmei/yaoi story in WN format. No, it's even belittling to categorize it in that way, because it has one of the most interesting take for a "transported into another world/transmigration" setting. Even if you don't like BL, you'll want to read it for the details and adventure.

The medicine-related details are amazing, the savage world setting is unique, and the main characters have motives that keeps me in awe so... more>> far.

Spoiler

I was in a rollercoaster ride when relying on the MC's pov and finding out that he really needs that berating when calling himself a God's messenger for a joke.

[collapse]

When you already feel invested in a character that far, I think it speaks loud about the author's capability in weaving well rounded personality into the character.

I'm left in awe and ache because that 600++ chapters won't come as soon as I wish. I'll be staying for the journey, definitely. <<less

Let me say the ugly word first - the translation is barely above mtl though its still readable. Translator exert great effort to publish 649 chapter in less than 9 months so if you want to complain help him to edit rather than be ungrateful.

HOWEVER

The story is very engaging. The plot is methodological so you will not be confused even with the various happenings and characters. The world building is immersive and author really put thought in the cause and effect of race relations and the effect of climates in... more>> the development of civilization.

The best thing is that author have a moral compass. How many novels have authors trying to potray their main characters as the 'good guys' but they are even more disgusting than the villians? How many genocides and r*pes do MC did but they all have excuses like its not their fault and they can't help it? Even in the modern setting somehow MC could be a heartless prick.

But the MC here is a true good quality goodness. Now, he's not at first but by the end of the story he really is someone with a moral compass

Let's talk about ML that do not have moral compass. He did r*pe our MC, and I don't think he ever grow any humanity. But! Our MC do not fall in love with him willy nilly and there are great effort in his part to create a space for him in our MC heart thus their relationship is not disgusting like other r*pe turn into love story.

Anyway there's so many great thing about this story and if you could just power through the torture, r*pe and cannibalism in the first part of the story you will find the story really worth it. <<less

The high and mighty MC is so wrapped around his own ideas that he takes forever to realize he's not in the modern era anymore. He's so busy trying to modernize the tribe, he keeps forgetting CULTURE DOESN'T JUST DISAPPEAR CAUSE YOU WANT IT TO. STOP LOOKING DOWN ON THEIR WAY OF LIFE AND STOP JUDGING YOU PRICK BASTARD BECAUSE WITHOUT THEM YOU WOULD HAVE ALREADY BEEN EATEN BY SOMETHING BIGGER THAN YOU!!!! ?

Wow, the jump between the two translators is big... I'm extremely thankful to both of them, but... warning: the second translator is fast, but the quality is noticeably lower. I appreciate them because they're quite passionate and both languages aren't their first language, so props to them. If only they had an editor...

I sometimes almost forget that this is yaoi... it kinda feels more like kingdom building. The world is quite complex and it's interesting to see how the MC deals with bringing "civilization" to more simple areas.... more>> The pros and cons of development are addressed fairly well, so I enjoying this aspect of the book.

Well, since it is a more "primitive" area at the start of the novel, r*pe, cannibalism, and s*avery occurs. These hardcore aspects get better though, so don't be too turned off by them.

Example:
Spoiler

After the MC builds his own city, he sets up laws that prohibit these among other things.

[collapse]

The characters in the novel are of high quality! The "pets" are adorable, and the various tribe members have special characteristics that help you remember or make you like them a lot despite the huge amount of characters. I like how complex the main characters are, especially the MC, who is both "evil" but not. The "system" he has is also quite complex, unlike most other systems, and is both kind and cruel to the MC. The power system has cool abilities too! Other races exist, and the relations are interestingly complex. It isn't as simple as: dwarves=smithing, etc..

Examples of Abilties:
Spoiler

So far, we've seen a type of earthbending initially similar to Avatar: The Last Airbender. Mermaids/men can waterbend, and there are various special abilities.

Aside from what other reviewers have already said, what I'd like you to come to attention is the fact that this story (at least at this point) seems to be a yaoi/danmei/BL story that doesn't really focus on the yaoi (imma use this term coz I'm used to this), instead focusing more on other things like (1) a considerably realistic/scientific/not-too-fictitious-'im-modern-and-everything-I-know-is-revolutionary-and-you-uncouth-savages-are-dumb-shits' kind of story, and (2) (from the look of it) a more realistic, romantic (?) romance that, I won't say much (coz... more>> I can't think of how to describe it right now) but is severely lacking in most BL stories I see nowadays on this site (like there's brainless MC dom ML, ruthless-with-everyone-and-also-smarter-than-anyone except with ML, etc., which normally you'd associate with most normal B/G, M/FM kind of romance. Heck all romances might come to be like this. Who am I to judge...). A BL not focusing on BL romance is what BL lacks if you ask me, as we don't normally see things like normal stories that aren't romance (like action, adventure, etc.), that lends itself to BL. (Like you can ship them all you want, but the brothers ain't gonna get together no matter what) meaning that BL is still considered/treated as not normal. But in this novel (from what I currently am seeing) is the author not treating BL as something special, but just another thing, as normal.... I don't know if I'm getting my point across but... anyway, I'm really glad that a story like this exists and is getting translated.

tl;dr Good story. Good romance. Probably. (I'm sensing no ridiculous shits like... you'd prob know what I'm talking about if you hate it.) (It might change. I hope not. TvT) (I'm only on what.. c14? might just try to read ahead by myself some time) A ~psychopathic MC. A yaoi tag. What's more to hope for. (More chapters I guess lol)

//the translator leaves notes about the trans like idioms and such, so if you like it... :D There's also no weird stuffs you have to do coz he/she wants to ward against bots (and as a results does not ward bots but instead readers.)

Update (c111) : The translator is not the same anymore but my rating is still the same. I'll edit my review at some point. <<less

4.4 for me. This is going to be a long ass review.

Warning : if you are not okay and can't handle with r*pe, torture, s*avery, human trafficking, Cannablism, human Rights violation and those who can't separate fiction from reality, Don't read this novel, it's not for you.

First, Plot and Story building wise:

I love it. You might think it just a story that revolves in primitive era where our MC (guy fron mordern era) trying to make it a civilized era...... you are right but it also contain a... more>> lot more of things like power abilities, magic not to forget special intelligent creatures, Gods and then space alien too. Sounds weird but it's pretty interesting. Although it also has lots of issues related with s*avery, cannablism, r*pe, torture, human rights Violation etc and all but I like how it was written like that (pretty realistic considering the start of the world with primitive people) and how the world change later on. It's a sad that this things still happens in today's generation although it's illegal now. Well, It's worth recommending. Trust me the story gets better and better and those issues (above) will get a bit better too........ well not till after some 300 chapters or somethingㄟ (・ө・) ㄏ.

I really liked how this time our MC was a Real bad guy unlike other transmitted stories. It was pretty nice to see Jiu Yuan growth from scratch to the most powerful tribe in east continent. The growth of characters and the tribe and its development and progression. Our MC is too OP.... I mean literally too much OP.

I would have gave it full points if it wasn't for author deliberately rushed the ended and other things. I don't about other but for me, I am not so satisfied with the way it ended. This story has a lot more potential to become better. Like the adventure of Mo in North and South Continent and meeting other semi-god creatures and also how their planet end up as 1st class civilization in interstellar and many more. I wouldn't have mind reading a thousands more chapter on that.

I also didn't like how some of important fights are expressed in only one or two sentences and in that way that before you know the fight already ended. I also didn't like the going from Present to future event that will occur later.... well, it's actually good to know some of the event that might occur in future but I like when things are explained in detail and such thing are a tease for me. (I want to know Du Du love story with mer-king, f*ck)

2nd, the relationship between ML and MC.

There's a lot many negative feedback on our ML:

[I Probably shouldn't say this but seriously, ML is from primitive area and ofcourse his prespective of things are same as other people. You can't expect him to directly change so quickly just because he met MC who's from mordern world. It's not easy to change ones prespective, especially if it had been going on became so common thing at that time. Then again, I am not supporting it but I just hope people would think about it]

I really love how their relationship end up becoming. I really liked MC hatred for ML and how it dissolve with given situation and later turned into love and It really took long ass time for our MC to fall for our ML (Unlike other r*pe start relationship where uke's just end up falling for seme after staying with him for few days) and the way he end up falling for ML is also very acceptable for me (ML really did a lot if things for him to show his love for him). I don't support toxic/ forced relationship too but if that toxic/forced relationship try and can be change into healthy one then why not give it a chance (to support).

I really liked ML character development and his love for MC. His love for MC is scary but very sweet, considering him as person from that era he really did tried his best to make MC fall in love with him (and it wasn't that easy). It's also the reason how he end up changing into likable character (although others might still not like him). The one thing I really like about this story is how our ML (a pure seme) was really willing to be the uke for our MC. As a pure seme myself, it's never easy to give up your position and willing to be under someone. It's not easy, even if the other person is the one you loved (one of the reson why I love ukes more) but this guy, this f*cking savage guy really did. Heads off to him.

I really loved how the author reminded us that even though our MC is uke, he too is a man. I like and prefer when there is a seme and uke postion in bl story (i think others too like it) but people often end up thinking uke role into female role and ends up forgetting that they are a man too and they too probably want to f*ck their lover instead of being f*cked all the time.

I am not a big fan of reverse role but I liked the reverse in here. It showed how ML was was ready to give up his dignity, his ass for the one he love and how MC (the uke) is/can be a wild man too. that was probably my fav love making of them. Although ML is too possessive but if MC is okay with that then who cares.

3rd, Babies:

Everyone likes babies...... especially in fictional. I really love the wholesome relationship with ML, MC and his disciple and the babies.

Although ML and MC changed and developed a lot from each other but they are still original too the core. MC is still a bad guy (even with Guide restriction) and ML is still like a Savage guy and their kids....... i'll leave it.

I would have love to read more chapters but what can we do when author doesn't want to write anymore. I would have love to know more about other couples too like YiBing and WuMeng (their relationship need a stable ending), Dada-Ding Fei and Ding Ning and Zi guy (i don't know if they have made any progressing to the relationship). I am especially worried about single guys like Yu Wu and Si Tan (who will be their partner or if they will have partner) and the kids, Lamo-ling, Jiu Feng, Sumen, Xiao hei, wonder who their partner will be especially Wu Gou, since he is the other son of life. As for D.U.B.O.I and Xiaohei...... will they have partners too? Finally I want a separate story of Du du and the mer-king (how can you tease us like that author).

Although I really love this novel, not gonna lie, translation was bit crappy, but they tried. Well, thanks to them atleast I could understand most of the things and got to enjoy the story. <<less

The novel is very engaging and plot-heavy. This is not your usual fluffy fluffy BL. The primitive life is very cruel, harsh, and the MC is there to speed up the process of civilization with his Jiu Yuan tribe.

The system is cruel, yes. Yet it also act as the biggest gold finger for the MC. The MC is also not innocent either, he used to experiment on countless creatures (even human) which sounds psychopatic to me. Meanwhile the ML? At first he's very savage like other primitive people, but he... more>> gradually becomes a possessive with a yandere tendency towards MC. I don't really like him tbh.

I must admit, he really loves MC very much. But, the fact that he r*pes MC (cuz he was a s*ave) and MC gradually fall in love with his rapist kinda threw me off. And the last few chapters leave a bitter taste in my mouth, cuz once again a character (Yuan Bing) end up with his rapist (Shi yu).

It gives me an impression that the Author romanticizing r*pe.

The villains are annoying, their motivation seems quite childish (like envious because someone is better than them blablabla). The Author also tried to make several 'strong' female characters (like Duo Fei, blablabla), yet I think its badly done. Instead of strong, the women scheme like a concubine in emperor's harem. They said they want to be strong to stand on their own, yet they continue to latch on the strongest man they see. I quite like Sha Lang and Cao Ting; they both respect themselves, have pride, yet also have to ability to back up their pride. Cao Ting was a s*ave yet she endures and later becomes an important person in the tribe. Sha Lang was from a weak tribe, but she establish her position as a trusted female warrior. Meanwhile the so called 'princesses' think they deserve to be with the strongest man and hold the strongest position, yet do nothing except scheme and scheme. I thought, as a princess, they should've known the best: being strong is everything. Sigh.

The MC children are cute. I think that's a plus point.

I kinda regret reading this book. I feel like I gain nothing except feeling grateful to be born in a safe environment. But don't let my opinion hinder your curiosity. Cuz this book still have its own appeal. <<less

I found this in one forum, and I can't agree more :

This novel goes from :

    1. primitive world (MC goes from s*ave to priest) ->
    2. fantasyworld (MC and ML build up their adopted tribe) ->
    3. realms/shounen manga-like world (majority of the arcs is exploring the other advance cities in this world and tournaments with interludes about their adopted tribe) ->
    4. western historical world (epidemic, s*avery/racism, MC levels up to god-like powers, too much face slapping, meeting another transmigrator, MC solves problems by impressive displays of power instead of clever ideas) ->
    5. science fiction world (exploring alien spacecraft, history of this planet, why was MC sent here by system, more face slapping, "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic", recycled information from previous arcs, everyone loves MC).

This is a very very good novel, I love their adventure together, their ups and down. The romance are more realistic, in the beginning they only use each other for their own benefit but the feelings slowly become true and mutual, I love that they support each other shortcoming, I love their conversation, and I love ... more>>
Spoiler

that they love their 'children' very much, and they spoiled them.

[collapse]
Slowly, the ML becoming a new person. He described as a 'bad guy', but for me, he's not that bad,
Spoiler

i also love that he have a soft spot for children, he's very patient and will often reward them some handmade candy. He will treat patience very seriously. He wont treat children or patience with disgust (you know, ancient people not so hygienic, poop and pee in the house). And when he teach someone, he will explain the process deeply, he even won't scold if they make mistakes.

[collapse]
He's a good teacher.
Ah, I really love this novel. <<less

[This is one of the best BL I have read and I have read alot.

What makes this novel so good is that it has a very deep meaning unlike other romantic novels. Which are about a fun love story where the protagonist and the love interest have ups and downs to they finally get together at the end and no one is really hurt well maybe the bad guys but this novel is different there a lot of pain some of it justified some of it not but it really... more>> makes the whole setting fell more heavy.

I don't know if the author did this or not on purpose but this books has alot of similarities with the biblical stories especially the protagonist who is damned at the start left for dead, who has alot of sins on his back and 'God's is making him pay them back.

The protagonist is not a nice person and is not very happy about been force to do good.

So he goes on to do good grudgingly. But on the road of salvation he becomes alot of archetypes the first one we see is the Beauty and the Beast. Where he tame's the top of our story who is a whole interesting character on his own. But the top is still a beast but aleast he is some what civilised.

The 2nd one we see is the savour as the protagonist is force to pay for his sin by be unable to let suffering go by. Meaning he has to save everyone with his knowledge of the modern world and of the old. While trying to make a better life for his followers.

The 3rd archetypes is the holy mother. The protagonist gets pregnant in notreally in the physical sense but more in the spiritual sense well because he a man, men dont get pregnant. But this one is very will done. He gets pregnant with witchcraft frult which is best viewed in the seed of god so you could a say this was a virgin birth.

But the witchcraft frult can go by a different name the son of life very cant be anymore obvious they way to get the son of life is with proper guidance. Which in a sense can be view as if you give all your love and not give into temptation then you will have a savour.

I will not go into much more detail of this book as it too big to talk about but I hope you understand that this book is deep and if you are scared of drowning then this book probably not for you. <<less

I can already tell that BTAW is going on my all time favourites list. It's another transmigration novel but the premise and storyline is incredibly different from any others I've encountered (FOD, TLMW, etc). This makes BTAW an intriguing and refreshing read. It has a Scum Point system just like in Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil and The Scum Villain's Self-Saving System but at least 100x more savage (l0l) to the not over powered MC. I do admit, the beginning was hard to read through due to its... more>> unconventional setting and non-con elements between the MC and ML that made me almost want to drop it. I'm not making any excuses but the thoughts and actions of the characters are based on the setting of the story, which is in the prehistoric era. This story makes you sympathetic (I suspect because of realistic plot devices and calculative and smart but not OP MC) and that is dangerous, just like the primitive world the MC is in. You know that the author has done their research thoroughly on topics from ancient civilizations to modern medicine and technology, based on the details and care in which they've written BTAW. This makes BTAW retain a sense of realism in its prehistoric fantasy setting. The plot is very imaginative and keeps surprising you. I look forward to the worldbuilding, romance and character development of Yan Mo (MC) and Yuan Zhan (ML) ! Thank you author, translators and editors for your continuous hard work in sharing this exceptional story with us all.

TLDR: This story is essentially like CIV VI (worldbuilding) but with a transmigrated MC and BL <<less
