Cub Raising Association

Xie Luan had always believed in science until one day, a meteorite smashed into his yard, forcing him to bind to a heroic world saving script. The worst thing was that the script didn’t even follow common sense.

Others become superheros while he became a super-nanny. So in his left hand was a “Cub Encyclopedia” and in the right, a small milk bottle to feed the small cub clinging onto his leg.

Today, Xie Luan is trying his best to save the world.

I MADE AN ACCOUNT JUST TO WRITE THIS REVIEW!!!! This story is seriously goddamn cute, fluffy, and heartwarming

(It says that it's still on going but the story is already completed)


It's a happy ending, and the MC and ML are very loyal to each other and are so freaking cute. They were able to save the world of the beautiful creatures, they have a baby mermaid, muka and others, although adopted. And knox is not the only surviving creature of his lineage because at the end they found out that there are hundreds of baby eggs hidden and safe


AND YESSS IF ONLY I KNOW CHINESE I WOULD TRANSLATE THIS TO MY UTMOST POWER. But I only read mtl when I like a story and it's still far from done. 5 stars! To anyone who hates this story, bttttch u blind!

Edit: March 11, 2019

So I ran out of bl novels to read here on nu and I can only reread those novels who I really like. It still makes me cry to finish this one because its filled with love and suffering

the cubs in another timeline who suffered a lot <3 reallt makes my heart ache


*sigh* it would be perfect to have extra chapters but the storys already been done long time ago. It would be very lovely to see our MC pregnant because

cuz ML dropped a spoiler (when all ppl thought that he's the last knox) he said that knox race can bloom with love

One of the best novel ever! The romance is slow paced but the story is soooo fluffy and good.

I read it through Google translate. But still enjoyed each and every chapter.

A must read novel!

Wow. Seeing the majority of people leaving 5-star reviews, I was somehow afraid of sullying it. Oh well. I didn't particularly hate the story. It was okay. If you only focus on the fluffy bits of the story and disregard everything, then it's a 4.5 to 5 stars. Period. Unfortunately, the story lacks plot. It's basically 90% fluff and 10% plot. Even the plot still contains fluff. It's perfect for someone looking for a light read. It might be a charm in itself, but for someone accustomed to intricate plots... more>> like me, it felt too simple. Also, some details were missed.

Some plot holes:


We never got an explanation on MC's temperament at the start of the story. I wonder how an artist in seclusion like him can get along so well with cubs and people? And what about his spiritual powers, where did it come from and how come it was so strong? What use is it in the end? What's gonna happen to his life on earth (including his friend Lu Yuan) after going back to Gaia?


A major critique coming from me is the dynamic between MC and ML. Objectively speaking, I feel little to no sparks between them. Because there are so many cubs to raise, their interaction became sparse. Aside from the first time they met, there's little chemistry coming from them. They didn't even talk to each other often... ML doesn't talk much which is a huge flaw since it makes him very 2D. Despite me feeling like they lack chemistry... they became more intimate rather quickly. I was perplexed since on some occasions no major event happen between both of them but then their relationship progresses on a frightening level. At some point, it made me feel like the romance between them was squeezed into the story.

That being said, I'm completely content with this story not being a BL novel at all, but simply a story about raising cubs. I'd prefer it that way and genuinely think it's better. <<less

You either will love this series or hate it. Unfortunately I don't like it. The general idea of raising alien children in a nursing academy sounds fun, but this story isn't. This series so far suffers from poor world building and a boring narrative.... more>>

As far as I understand about the setting is that the nursery raises alien children for mostly military purposes. Maybe? The series waffles on the idea. Kind of contradicts the fluffy image that the author is writing.

As for the story so far, there really has been no interesting characters or plot points. Which is a shame because can you image the type of personalities that find affection or fascination for some of the hulking aliens they call children?

What has happened so far is that the main character has solved every problem by accident or by virtue of being a great person. The Marysue is strong in this series, the main character loses nothing and gets everything!


Overall I wanted more out of this series and got very little instead, leaving me disappointed. <<less

An overloaded cute and fluffy story.

This story stays true to its name, basically how to raise cubs/children. MC is very likable (OP in someway but not too much). There was almost no conflict, no drama. It actually had a very big plot to play with but slove in a few chapters (and too easy to believe).

Anyway, This is definitely a story worthy to read.

OMG this story is so cute!! I love the MC's behaviour towards the cubs so tender!!

Freaking hell, just finished reading it and the story is just an overload of fluffiness *dies*

Although the fluff is nice, sometimes you just need a little more detail when it comes to the love making... Though, the implied meaning is already steamy enough sometimes ;)


I remember one point the MC recalled how the ML used his tail to lift him up and down... if you know what I mean ;)

This novel is unique as the MC travels to another universe to be a caretaker for cubs. Most time-travel novels are more about the MC (female/male) either falling in love, complete missions, or finding their way home.

As a whole, the story isn't bad. However, the novel is quite cheesy. It really exaggerates the MC's good qualities, such as his cooking skill or his "exceptional" kindness. On top of that, the MC has some crazy golden fingers. One of his abilities feels way too over-powered and it makes me sad that he has it, but then the story basically ignores it altogether after the first few chapters??? It really takes away some realism elements. Also, he behaves in ways that don't make sense; like he's unbelievably composed... more>> and articulate in front of a large crowd even though he has no background with such things. Furthermore, victories that it doesn't really make sense for him to win are won (the flying competition; how could training of less than a week possibly compare to what the other clubs must have done, even if PeiPei were incredible??). Another example is the Houdie Family's dumb actions in court, even I can think of a bunch of other possible counters to at least minimize the damage of the situation.

That said, it's still very cute. A huge selling point of this story is the meng. It also has a slow romance, which I like. So far, the ML's character hasn't really followed a stereotypical troupe (he's cold but not aggressive yet, most similar to ML in I'm Not Human). However, even if I know he's adult and he was "alive" during the egg stage, it still feels weird that literally, MC was there since the day he hatched... I love the familial bonding with the other cubs.

The story has potential, so I'm looking forward to reading more. <<less

(Important things should be said 3 times)

As aforementioned awhile ago this novel is full of cuteness. Your gonna die from all the meng that you will obtain from these novel. Although the MC and ML dont have lovey dovey scenes as of now. hopefully they would be more in the future. but it is a great read especially if your moving on from an angsty novel.

There are a few notes... more>> to take by:


as of now it is still not fully specified about the seemingly catastrophe that will about to happen in the future. But according to the golden ball that catastrophe seemed to be connected to the ML. It seems inevitable since the golden ball said that he already destroyed the root of destruction but the catastrophe still happened. It seems like the MC was transmigrated to the past before the catastrophe



the MC is basically a white lotus. Well basically he needed to have the qualities of a white lotus to raise cubs. But the way he accepts all the events in his life so easily kinda annoys me. He didnt even had a resistance to it (well maybe at first) but the way he accepted it so quickly.

This is a cute, fluffy series with adorable magical pets and abilities. The MC gets partially transferred to another world to "save the world" by running a daycare, which also acts as a boarding school. The daycare x boarding schools are referred to as "clubs" in this series. Parents can visit on weekends, but they often go months without stopping by. The parents don't parent much and leave this important task to the clubs to manage. No races look for any different personality traits other than what humans strive for,... more>> and there is no difference in cultural values, even though these creatures are different species from different planets and universes. The gravity and air quality on each of the known planets is the same, too.

The MC is a Gary Stu with what is suggested to be the greatest spiritual power ever known. He uses this power to heal minds and bodies as well as develop special abilities for the cubs he's raising. He's an artist on Earth, but this life is neglected during the series, leaving his character flatter than it should be. The ML has hardly any depth at all so far and can be considered the flattest character in the whole series thus far.

The romance is uncomfortable for a number of legal, moral, and ethical issues. I agree with other reviewers that this would be better without the romance altogether.

The ML has literally only been hatched for a few months before he starts romancing the MC. He can't speak full sentences yet and still has a very undeveloped, child-like mind. He's just a baby in an adult's body. He doesn't know much about morals and can't even read or take care of himself yet. He doesn't even know how to play with other cubs, and he's already in a romantic relationship with the person who could best be considered his father. The ML is like a child who has developed inappropriate sexual conduct regarding his parent, the person who hatched him. This behavior needs to be reprimanded. This child is very young, and he needs to learn more about the world before he tries to mate with his dad. Although the ML and MC never think of the MC as the ML's dad, it is abundantly clear the MC fills that role and should have the same responsibilities as the father. Not only does the MC not put a stop to this alarming behavior, but he accepts the ML's affections. What kind of a parent is he? As a caretaker, he would be fired from and banned from working with children if he enacted such pedophilic behavior on Earth. Just because someone looks like an adult doesn't mean that person is an adult. Did the MC lose all sense of morality when his body was copied and lost any concern about taking advantage of a baby less than a year old?


This series would work better as fantasy rather than sci-fi. With the exception of one pet, each of these creatures grows up into a humanoid form. This is weird since the MC is the only human there and not much is known about humans. No explanation is given for this, and the adults can magical change between their pet-like form to their human forms and back in an instant. Bizarrely enough, they all look like creatures on Earth with exceptions for things like horns or other minor details. Most cubs look like cats or big cat cubs. There isn't much variety. Additionally, the sci-fi details are completely undeveloped with the exception of two details: 1) they can travel in space, and 2) there is a device that can mimic a different environment. That said, these things could easily become fantasy. There isn't much description or detail given about these items.

Speaking about description, the background and world-building are severely lacking.

If you came looking for a good sci-fi, this is not it. However, the story is cute and entertaining, and I had a hard time putting it down. It's definitely something to turn off your brain for, though. It could have been written much better if it had world-building, distinct cultures and planets, and species that don't all lamely look like humans. <<less

This story is really... cute.

As expected from a story abot raising pets children, its really really fluffy. The conflicts are minimum ... more>>

except for the big baddies in the end

and the MC is somewhat likeable. The setting is interstellar world where cubs of the races there are raised in the titular institution. Most of the first part of the novel are about raising the pets children cubs and the develop a good cub raising association. All the cubs featured in the story are really cute and imho the best part of this novel is just the interaction between the MC and the cubs he raised.

If you're wondering how the whole saving the world plot is connected with being a nanny, this novel provide quite a satisfactory answer and the ending, while a bit abrupt, is also good enough. There are some minor nitpick about some plotholes and the relationship between the MC and ML. The MC is the weakest creature in the interstellar as a human he somehow become this OP tamer nanny that can calm an unruly children cubs in 5 seconds.

But if you want a fluffy novel about raising children

well... until the plot kicks in and even then there's still fluffy moment

you'll like this novel. <<less

I liked this Novel. However, I wouldn't read it again unless I had no other BL to read. I have no problem with 'MarySue' Novels et c. As someone before had commented, the two main Characters are very one dimensional to me. I felt that there was more Characterization in Morrison than MC and ML and he's just a blip on the map in comparison.

It felt as though the Author was going to really dig deep into the ML's past and build up his Character but it just came up... more>> lacking to me. That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy this Novel. One of my only issues was how abrupt the transition from cub to adult was for the Nox though. It kept feeling like 'Oh, he doesn't show that much emotion or talk so much because he's still adjusting' was the excuses I kept coming up with but at what point do you say 'Oh, he doesn't show that much emotion or talk because the Author attempted to make ML the strong silent type but utterly failed'. So I kind of just floated on the line of both those thoughts throughout the entire Novel.

I explained away the whole MarySue vibe by the fact that the World Conscious deliberately went to seek out the MC to save that World. It can be assumed that the Conscious probably took into consideration Luck and Spiritual Strength from the infinite number of 'candidates' it could've chosen from.

Needless to say, if you are looking for a relaxed sort of Novel I suggest you read it but don't get your hopes up that much for something extravagant.

P.S. I had a hard time with this Novel mostly because of the Characteristics of the ML with his Silver tail that reminded me of 'I am not Human'. I had that to compare the ML's and it just sort of made it difficult to not nitpick on how the 'strong silent' vibe should've been portrayed.

A lovely, heartwarming story about a MC who loves children caring for a variety of adorable cubs. Watching these sweet little cubs work through their difficulties and flourish under the love and attention every child deserves is a treat.

My only concern is that, plotwise, there seems to be a bit of an unexplained mystery about the MC's home world. Early on it seemed going to sleep in one world transported him to the other, and he could bring objects over from the home world, but that aspect has totally disappeared.... more>> I hope this is resolved later on.


edit: uhh so I thought the ML would be the General guy but ML actually... hatched from an egg MC was taking care of. Don't give me any of that "oh but the egg had awareness for years" stuff, that's an infant with 0 real world life experience and this is Weird. There's not much romance and the bulk of the story's focus is on the other kids and I really enjoy those parts so I'm trying really hard to ignore the pairing. <<less

This novel will tug your heart strings at the incredibly adorable descriptions of the cubs, but I'm afraid that's it.

This novel isn't my cup of tea, I saw it a long time ago and avoided it, but now I've came back. Maybe will pick it up when I've exhausted other options.


... more>>

As someone that has rare heartthrob moments, there are some parts of the story that made me squeal on the inside.

It is a 'feel good' novel, you will have a sweet taste in your mouth whilst reading it, unlike a bittersweet taste in many other novels.




Too shallow. I can take stretches to my imagination and drops in IQ of MC or other characters. It is an inherantly lighthearted novel, but tries too hard to touch on deeper subjects such as racism and prejudice, thus making it come off as pandering. A cheap way for the MC to gain moral points.

Too many golden fingers. Sometimes this many not be a bad thing, but only if the MC studies and exploits his golden fingers effectively, making this 'feel good' novel, you know, feel good. But the author tries to seem informative and tries to set a foundation for good world building. Only to abandon it when the plot progresses and only bringing it back when neccesary.

An example of this is when the MC realises he could bring his items from the original world into this new world. We are then dumped with exposition explaining the rules of this golden finger. He uses it once to auction an exotic flower from his original world to the new world for money. Keep in mind he needs money to support the childcare he so desparately loves. Not only does he not go back to auction more things, the plot blatantly drops it. Then later on he has a dilemma of once again running low on funds. Go and auction some items MC????????

Oh and this novel is boring, it tries so hard but it just couldn't make the cut.

This is purely adorable. One of the rare novels that I read through MTL till the end. The MC is one of those humans that are just too kind and the world needs more people like him. I loved almost about everything. Although the ending made me wish for more.

This is all fluff and also with the right amount of feels, especially in the part where...

... the MC went to an alternate universe where he didn't get to meet and take care of the babies, and the life they all lived was completely different.

This... this is simply a perfect mix of childcare/ club development and plot! Really really well written!

Though there are some questions on why the MC was chosen and where he even got his OP skills of coaxing cubs from and what happens in the ‘real’ world, everything else is beautifully written and all (I think) foreshadowing and emphasis of matter (like things the author emphasised on or hinted at or touched on) had closure! I also felt that the futuristic setting also wasn’t really developed and didn’t seem interstellar-ly enough... more>> and certain things (ie money making scheme, food stuff, military stuff, combat training stuff) could have been more developed (meh it may change the type of story if it did but it would have been nice if it was nicely developed instead of a touch and go) but other than that, everything else was great.

The story started of with how the MC slowly developed the club and care for the cubs by loving them and getting them through their traumas and problems. Most cubs mentioned (expect the poor Takila cub) had sufficient screen time. There is no feeling of ‘touch then disappear’ (where the cubs are mentioned, problem solved and then never to see them again) even though there were quite a few main cubs.

As the caring of the cubs goes on, the romance (not too much about it though) and the plot unfolds. The plot isn’t too heavy. It can be seen that it plays a role in the story (it is the focus but not at the same time, read it to get what I mean!) and was present throughout, not jumping out of nowhere, but not much drama or chapters were put to the resolution of the plot. It was nicely developed and quite well resolved.

The MC is part of the OP protagonist category:

✅ Ridiculously caring, patient and knowledgeable when coaxing and caring for the cubs

✅ Super duper high mental/ spiritual ability

✅ High affinity towards cubs

✅ Dude has so much love to give, like so much!

He is so gentle and loving but this wasn’t hinted when he was in the real world though, and rather the opposite was hinted.

The ML, wells I really have nothing to write on about the ML. He was there throughout and he brushes up is presence a lot, but his role wasn’t much... ? There was somewhat of a character development (maybe... ?) and he plays a major role in the plot.

The last few chapters... ABSOLUTE GEMS! When you feel like it has ended lo and behold another well written chapter pops up! And the very last chapter was an unexpected bonus! An alternate ending everyone! There was an author note that state that she would be writing about the children when they grow up and some other extras on Weibo but I couldn’t find them T^T Drop me a message if you manage to find the raws!

Overall, a really really really good read! If you like ADORABLE CUBS, childcare, children development, club/ association development/ management (somewhat like business management but for this non-profit club) and a decent plot flow, this is definitely for you! Not for those seeking super interstellar-ry, military troupe and fluff seeker. Casual passerby READ IT! You’ll have no regrets! <<less

If you took Mary poppins and care bears and mashed them together, then set it in the world of star trek, you would have this.

Adorable little baby aliens that mostly look like bunnies, kittens and puppies with horns are being raised by a young man who constantly cuddles them and tells them how good they are.

This is a cotton candy fluff fest of a story.

There is a bit of a sad alternate time line and possible future storyline that is hinted at, but the power of love and hugs will... more>> save the world.

Along with becoming the mate of the one who could grow up to be the big baddie.
