What? He’s transmigrated into an apocalyptic novel?

What? He transmigrated into a white lotus?

What? The white lotus killed the main character shou (bottom, uke) and even proudly became a mistress?

Oh, luckily the white lotus in the apocalypse has a thick thigh to hold on to (someone to rely on).

What? This was actually an apocalyptic rebirth revenge story?

What? The thick thigh was actually a really big cannon fodder?

Therefore, this is the dramatic story of a man who transformed into a white lotus struggling to survive in an apocalyptic rebirth revenge novel, trying to avoid the reborn pig’s foot (the original main character), and trying his best to get away from the cannon fodder gong (top, seme).

If when reading the novel someone wonders (as I did) what happened to the other cannon fodder.

I leave you a spoiler of the first chapter of the novel of the meat cannon An Ziqui by this same author:

... more>>

Vaguely, An Ziqi seemed to hear a friend's whisper...

"Zi Qi, the wood power is awesome, don't be discouraged!"

"Zi Qi, we are a pair of awesome brothers when we repair the chain to level five!"

"Zi Qi, don't be nice to others, your woman doesn't seem to be a peaceful one!"

"Zi Qi, why are you so savage? I just told you to beware of that woman!"

"Okay, okay, I know you like her, but I still want to remind you that you should be careful or be careful!"

"Zi Qi, I'm leaving now, take care!"

"Since we are both cannon fodder, I would like to remind you to be careful of all women!"

"Babel, I hope I still have a chance to see you, don't forget to call me brother Lien when we meet next time!"

Haha, I'm afraid I won't have a chance to call your brother, I'm sorry, I didn't listen to your advice, I'm sorry, my brother, Lian Hua...

An Ziqi was completely plunged into darkness...

An sorrowful cry came from his ears, and An Ziqi felt very strange. Except for his untuned brother Lianhua, who doesn't know where he is now, who would shed a tear for him?

What? The protagonist is actually a rare gong/seme/top narrator?

What? The first thing he did after transmigrating was to check for his abs?
What? How many freaking tags does this novel have?
Oh, there's so many details, but they're all resolved and they fit together beautifully.
What? Why does this feel like something I wrote myself?
What? I liked it so much that I became the translator?
Therefore this story is a must read. The idiot protagonist was hilarious and his reactions were surprisingly rational and believable given the situations he finds himself in. Although I called him an idiot, he wasn't s*upid and knew how to make the most of his surroundings. The most amazing thing was that the MC immediately circumvents the transmigration theme by throwing all the details of the book away and concentrating on saving his own ass. All those "what"s in the introduction aren't for show. While I was reading, I was surprised pretty often. Even the characters themselves found the world weird but engaging. There were support characters who were fleshed out so well that you had to wonder what happened to them while they were off screen. The action scenes were intense, and if you're lucky, there may even be some "action". In a world where everyone is ready to betray each other, the MC and ML's love was very pure and heart warming (it also warmed other things, if you know what I mean (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).

I can already tell just by the protagonists inner monologuing that this is going to be a hilariously fun ride. I love how realistically he views his situation, and that he's not automatically a reincarnated badass. I'll update this when I'm farther in but I can tell this is a keeper.

A very fluffy and light reading, our MC is cute and silly.. I recommend this for anyone who digs warm story with no tragic situation or pain.. The plot is light and no actual rival, but still able to hook you up to binge read and neglect your real life.

This novel has many ridiculous and "WTH Author" situations, such as :

... more>>

MC (father) and the Pig Feet (waifu) gonna have a baby boy (biological with their own DNA), guess the origin of the baby? Jade Mushroom, yap that one mischievous mushroom. But later because of helping our MC to heal his injury using up all of his power and become an ordinary spoiled rotten human baby.. But don't worry.. Since parents are OP af, offff cooourse baby gonna get back his power. ?



btw our MC become a hot green hair fairy hehe what a gorgeous family. One of Pig Feet's brother is jealous about them having a son, he wants to have one too.. So he ask our MC about how to make a baby between men lmao, MC gave him a seed for them to grow into a plant (this will bloom into a baby) the plant needs a lot of nurturing before blooming, expensive ingredients such as nucleus, parents blood and that *cough* Yang material. This baby also spoiled rotten hahaha both cousins are mischievous.



Our MC become the owner of an OP Base city called Green Town full of Mutant Plants that able to produce edible fruits and vegetables for people (in exchange with crystal nucleus and having a sincere heart), so yeah no more starving (good hearted) survivors.. Our MC and waifu are the strongest in China (World?)


I love this novel, thank you translators for making me notice this cute novel! <<less

The MC is hilarious. He tries his best to curry favor with the reborn pig's foot and fails miserably at that since the reborn ML from the BL novel that the MC read in his previous life hates his guts and wishes for nothing more than to kill the little white lotus/evil mistress/poor MC.

It's a unique reincarnation story since the cheat-like person/golden thigh/dude with the main protagonist halo who the MC is trying to desperately avoid or win over has been reborn and already despises him and is hell bent... more>> on getting revenge unlike the other reincarnation stories where there is still room to work with trying to improve themselves (The Scum Villain's Self Saving System, Every Day The Protagonist Wants To Capture Me and those villainous noble girls reborn novels).

I can't wait for that hate to turn into love. Since the story is still at the beginning of the apocalypse, no romance yet for the little white lotus. <<less

This story made me realize that this world is in a desperate need of novels where the main character is a henpecked wife-s*ave gong. MC's head is filled with his 'wife' 99% of the time, and it's really hilarious. Also, the 'sticky, silly gong' MC and 'aloof tsun shou' ML combination is pure gold!

At first I wasn't enthusiastic about the novel, because MC was reborn in a weak shou body, but after chapter 28-29 it became perfect. In retrospect, the beginning is really good too, and it gains some value... more>> when re-reading. <<less

An interesting slice of life apocalypse zombie story. At first it was a bit confusing trying to understand the premise of what was real, novel, reincarnation. MC is a regular guy in our regular modern times. He gets hit by a book and gets soul transmigrated into canon fodder character in the book. However, the original book had multiple time lines. The original timeline, the MC's canon fodder character is pretty evil and uses everyone to get to his greedy purposes. In the second timeline, the ML is reincarnated and gets revenge on all the canon fodders in the story. However, after the MC gets transmigrated into the novel, a third timeline gets introduced where the ML and multiple other characters were reincarnated. It all gets a bit confusing as many characters know cheats.

The romance is a bit strange as if it feels like the ML is a tsundere and is not very romantic. The ML is gorgeous, stoic, commanding, and very smart. It was a bit odd that he turned out to be uke originally, and the MC who was originally a white lotus pretty boy ended up as the manly partner who chases after the ML shamelessly. It's a bit of role reversal of what you would normally expect from a BL novel.

There's nothing really dramatic in the story, and the MC is a bit of an idiot but has his knowledge and old talking mushroom to level up fast. To be honest, I would have preferred if the story was more about the zombies, the leveling, and the politics rather than the romance. Even the 3 orphans that the MC trains and takes care of for a couple of months was more interesting than the overall romance.

In any case, it's a short story and ends happily ever after, even creating the scene of 2 men able to have children of their own. That has to be the funniest part of the story.

The start of the book can only be described as crappy. ... more>>

Let's not mention the "good" friend who appeared for the first chapter and was forgotten for a long time. Let's ignore the fact that one line says he chased a cannon fodder who was on a trip to go to that city there but at the same time he lives in a dormitory there. Let's ignore the fact that he tells his good friend to tell his mother to buy more food and the friend does it immediately without asking why or how much is more food... it could be an extra grocery bag for all we know.


The plot goes one way (the MC preparing to be self sufficient) then another (to being a forced? underling). If you can ignore all the mc's whining and watch him prepare for the apocalypse that's a good start...


Till all that preparation becomes worthless because he can't stand his ground in front of the ml. So he abandoned his own project for a life of a servant because he is scared.... this guy had millions in his account and tossed everything aside because he saw the ml's underling. Like s brainless human, he allows this supporting character to threaten him. For him to end up the way he did, was just lazy writing


Then move past that and enter the apocalypse. If you look at this part without all the extra whining of the MC, his actions show growth, from a weak stature to actively killing zombies. But all this is washed out by the fact that every line depicts him as an idiot and lowers his self-worth.

The ML is supposed to have a tsundere personality but that doesn't mean the MC has to accept every crap.

Like the ML gives him half eaten chicken to get him to work because the MC likes chicken legs. It is done in such a derogatory manner that the MC looks like a dog. People won't even treat their dogs as badly as the ML treats him (plus the ML knows he is now s different person, so the cruel treatment makes no sense)... and the MC accepts such treatment gratefully like a masochist.... no, if it were clearly outlined that the MC was a masochistic then there would be less of an issue, but the plot simply says the MC is s*upid.

It doesn't seat right to call a person s*upid.

There are lots of interesting side characters, and their story is honestly more interesting to read than watching the writer forcefully make the MC s*upid in front of the ml. Every paragraph must show how s*upid the MC is compared to the cool ml. While a cool, capable bottom and a less capable top is a nice idea but it is done terribly. At a point, it's just better to skip over the MC parts and monlogue and focus on other parts of the story.

The world building is one of those better parts, the way abilities, mutated creatures and the world develops is very interesting. If you put aside whatever uncute dog-master crap is going on between the leads, the story is a very nice read.

Aside from following after the male lead, the MC has no sense of self. The only comedy in the book is when the MC acts like a low IQ person or others point out how s*upid he looks. The ending is good. Lots of other elements...

like mushroom babies, evolved plant, plant cities, mushroom and tiger in relationship and more

The premise of the story is interesting, but the characters make it so hard to be invested in the story. The MC lacks depth in character, making s*upid mistakes again and again, which he wouldn't have made anyway if he actually TRIED thinking about what he's doing. He lacks a spine, all his actions tell you he is a coward, but for some reason the story is telling you he is brave.

As for the ML? Meh, just a bland overbearing and self righteous prick who only knows how to threaten... more>> people to get what he wants. There is nothing charismatic or admirable about him really. Just a privileged brat lording over everyone. There is no right way or wrong way, only his way. In the beginning, the MC does a good job in investing in jades and escaping, but then he allowed himself to be kidnapped by the "Pig Leg" when he could have honestly prevented that if he just stood his ground. He really is just a coward. I can only suspend my disbelief so much, there is no way I can see these characters as anything compelling. <<less

The story is engaging and unique. The characters are fun and well fleshed out. The pacing so far is well done. The translation quality is great.

I definitely recommend this.


It's also kind of fun how there are so many reborn characters, that even though they are all trying to make all these moves to change their fate, they get in each other's way in a sense.

Just gets two stars from me because I really dislike the ML.

... more>>

The ML (the shou) figures out that the MC (gong) is not the person who wronged him, but still thinks he's going to kill him when he gets bored of him for no reason. Seriously, I really, really dislike the shou. Even worse all of his underlings (but for a nice auntie) are nasty to the MC and look down on him for being an 18 year old who is not good at fighting. I can't believe how they looked down on him because he is bad at using a knife and feel superior to him because they are professional fighters who are much older and have experience. Also none of the Shou's underlings think that their boss is wrong for basically abducting the gong under the guise of wanting to 'protect' him or feel that he is wrong for bullying and targeting the gong. They all despise and look down on the gong. Now if the story had the grace to make the Shou regret treating the gong shittily and chase after him it would be fine. But instead the shou plans to murder someone who did nothing wrong when he is bored of playing with them. And instead of the shou falling for the gong and making it up to him, it will be the gong pursuing this abusive shou. So hateful. I like the gong, so those two stars are for him.

Transmigration of a muscle trainer to a novel's villain cannon fodder white lotus. origHost is the mistress b/n origHost's cousin & reborn Pig leg (protag shou!) in the novel, all MC could do is sell meng.

oMC has mushroom pet, water and wood ability.

The cannon fodder fell in love with the godly male lead.

... more>> Likes the person who wanted to abuse him to death!

What a tragic tale!

Fluffy apocalypse, love how the MC gong hugs the potag shou's thighs and how MC always dazedly stares at protags face. Many timeskip but gives a short summary about the happening in that timeskip. <<less

I appreciate the author's plot idea but I'm very disappointed. I don't mind a s*upid MC which is a gong but what ticks me off is, he's not only shallow but he's also indecisive (dunno if coward, but not really). He's not like a person who lost a family when young in his real life. The MC looks like a sheltered 2nd generation young master.

Also, there's a lot of MC's rambling and dog blood drama.

Will drop

if you're looking for a gritty, serious survival story then you've come to the wrong place. The first word that comes to mind when reading this is silly. The MC is silly, the situations are both silly and outright preposterous and there are so many rebirths/ second chance revenge lines going on that no one can keep them all strait. This story doesn't pretend to be anything other than a comedy with a zombie apocalypse background. To borrow a well used idiom: don't hate iron for not becoming steel. This... more>> is a light-hearted novel that pokes fun at its own overused genres with some added slice of life and and a little romance. Don't expect it to be something it's not and you'll enjoy it more. <<less

Honestly, it's just okay for me. The story and premise aren't bad, but the author tries to fit in a lot of different things and, ultimately, fails to deliver on any of them. I mean, come on- 2 completely different supernatural cultivation systems? Unnecessarily confusing... But it doesn't stop there; the story can't seem to decide if it's a comedy, tragedy, action-adventure, or otherwise so it just comes off as kinda funny, kinda sad, kinda interesting, and pretty pointless.

If you like the genre, I recommend Back to the Apocalypse since... more>> it has a similar plot but is less confusing. Or even the apocalypse arc of one of those transmigration type stories might do a better job, tbh. It's not bad, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you have tons of free time and have read every other rebirth/apocalypse novel you know of. <<less

Man it sucks when you know how amazing a book could have been if the author had just left it where it was. The beginning was awesome, we have a super determined MC that does not want to get killed or be apart of the drama. Not op or even super smart, but just trying to survive. And then he met ml, and turned into a giant puppy. He's way too involved in the drama considering that's not what he originally wanted. Everyone is aiming for him because he's close... more>> to ml. And ML doesn't really do much in these situations. I mean romance wise the ML didn't really do much. It felt like the MC could only get scraps of affection. Not even sure how the romance came about. MC saw ML looking smexy and said that's my future wife. And it started to get ambiguous and that's all I know. This could have been a 4 stars or even a 5 if it was more about surving the apocalypse with a child, then building a base. But I could tell it wasn't going to get better than where I was at so I ditched it. <<less

It's an alright, not very serious apocalyptic novel. A little bit of fluff, adventure, and comedy. MC and ML are pretty OP and don't really struggle much to build their empire, have kids, etc.

... more>>

It's not mpreg as their child is a fusion of some mushroom spirit and their blood. Later, MC gives his brother-in-law a seed that they can drip some blood on to grow a child so they could have a nephew.


Unfortunately, MC does most of the legwork in the relationship. He's not s*upid, he's just a nice guy who often gets taken advantage of. Not sure how ML even had a boyfriend in the beginning because the guy doesn't have much of an EQ at all. He's supposed to be tsundere but it's all tsun and no dere. It seems like he just... reluctantly accepted their relationship after some period of time. <<less

Tbh, I like this story a surprising amount for a few key reasons. First of all, although the MC definitely is OP, it never feels like he's overwhelmingly strong to the point that the story gets boring. Secondly, I really enjoy his relationship with ML. Not only is seeing "reverse" refreshing (where MC is the gong / top that is shamelessly pursuing the ML), it's nice to see a relationship develop from hate to love. Lastly, it's pretty humorous, particularly the banter between MC and it's "pet" mushroom. It's probably... more>> funnier before MC realizes he liked ML, but even so it's not bad. Also, I find that having transforming cannon fodder characters by making them also have "rebirthed" makes the story even comical.

Also, the plot is pretty interesting I think. There's nothing particularly original about it, but it's still rather entertaining. Furthermore, I'm glad the MC isn't a white lotus that hides and needs to be protected and is useless and dumb. He certainly had these traits in the beginning, but it's nice to see him try to change (after he transmigrated) and get stronger and self-sufficient, able to stand by ML's side. There's also a cast of amusing and interesting side characters, although it took me a while to differentiate between the Secretary and the Bodyguard (their names are too similar lmao).

All in all, I think this is an enjoyable read and I'm excited for more. Thanks to the translator so far, clearly there was a lot of work put into it especially with footnotes explaining wording nuances and whatnot. I really hope someone picks this translation back up!!!!

(also, it's unexpectedly easy to MTL)

So I ended up MTLing the remainder. I realized there's really not much development of the relationship between MC and ML after the beginning, and ML just becomes a cold tsundere that doesn't really interact with MC. It's just that they're together quite a bit so that the story can take advantage of their OPness. And it's honestly a little too much, there's no real struggle anymore cause MC and ML just become way too strong. Overall the story gets worse, but it's still not bad.

Side note in the last chapter wife counterattacked (for a short period of time), so there can technically be a reversible tag loool. <<less

I liked it until the last few chapters where

almost every single antagonist got their just desserts by becoming a plaything/ r*pe victim.


I abhor r*pe in stories (I added the r*pe tag) and it's just lazy writing. 3 stars because I enjoyed the beginning and middle.

It's... okay, I guess.
Truthfully the rest of the cast doesn't catch my eye, and the MC is kinda annoying. Sure, he's shameless but he's also whiny, he plays it out a little too much.

I guess I expected something more serious, but it's really wacky and slice of life instead, which is fine, I guess. Kinda boring for me though.

TLDR; Don't read this if you expect a semi-serious plot line relating to the apocalypse where it involves forming friendship over hardships.
