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.

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

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)

... more>>

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

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.

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

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.

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 ;)

(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 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

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

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.


So yeah, totally recommended for those who needs healing! <<less

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.

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.

One of the fluffiest and cutest sorry I have ever read. Definitely doesn't dissapoint.

The plot is really good and probably one of a kind for now.

The ending might be one of the best ending I have ever read that truly fits and feels like it's the end of the story but it still give you that warm feeling. I'm totally satisfied with the ending and also the alternative ending that were written out.

Too fluffy! There are Cubs at right and Cubs at left. A heaven for cub lovers. Romance is slow but peaceful. Quite a good pace of the story. Not very slow but slow enough that it seems real and actions speak louder than words is clearly expressed between MC and ML. Some things are still needed to be expressed in worlds by ML due to his very calm and almost indistinguishable behaviour. The story is more towards the progress of the cub raising association branch in which MC works and... more>> his interaction with Cubs as well as the psychological problems of the young ones and how they should be treated.


MC turns out to have spiritual power which is quite high it seems and ML... Oh, I even doubted who it is when the retired Admiral came in the club... It's the Knox cub. Even I was confused how the cub fell in love. But it's explained further ahead and in very good pace. And I especially like the link ability as well as the limited travel to the parallel and future world of the Knox cub.



Finally completed! Background story is well thought and I liked the extra chapter especially the ending.


MC and ML find a large group of Knox eggs in the underground of the 'Knox' planet and they take it back to Yunbao. They are cared for and after a month or so they hatch. They regard MC and ML as their parents and are super sticky to MC. They follow MC wherever he goes in the club. Wow.. Just imagine the MC moving with a trail of cute fluffs behind him!! And they usually intrude into MC and ML's room at night to sleep (not all of them or the bed wouldn't be able to hold them) and towards this MC and ML are quite helpless even though ML feels upset. And the Cubs happily sleep in-between their supposed parents.



Our MC turns out to be a S-level caretaker when he took the test. And his mental power broke through the score of 100 and reached 120. That was an amazing scene to me especially the reactions of the examiners.

ML is the Knox Prince. He's a royalty. MC finally lives in the other world, I think as he didn't mention going back to Earth to ML.

A story for those that want their heart to feel at ease. The story is full of fluff and family feels. Any big conflict is solved with relative ease, and solved quickly without the baggage of drama that many stories like to use. [Is suitable for MTL]
