Cub Raising Association


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

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 superheroes 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.

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 s*xual 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

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.

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.

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

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.

I did not care for the theme of the novel and I feel compelled to write this review to give those who are in the same boat as me an idea of what they're in for before they get too invested.

This is NOT a romance novel nor a fantasy novel (other than the setting), it's a slice of life novel focused almost entirely on childrearing. Romance is a tiny part of it, and what's there isn't good. I found it creepy to be in that kind of relationship with someone... more>> you've raised since infancy, but even if you're able to hypnotize yourself into accepting it by convincing yourself that having been conscious inside the egg counts, it's still not good. The ML is semi-mute with low presence and his relationship with the MC is more of imprinting, juvenile attachment, and dependence. It would have been much better if the relationship was with that scruffy middle aged General character.

If you are like me and not interested in parenting, this novel may not be a good fit. Almost the entirety of the novel follows a single pattern: meet a cub>cub immediately feels attached to the MC>child care related to that cub with occasional happenings and drama related to that cub, but mostly slice of life. Had it not been for the "destruction of the world" subplot and wanting to know more about that highly developed extinct species, I would have dropped it after the first few chapters when the "cuteness" novelty started to wear off. I had to slog through the entire thing with all of its uninteresting parts and plot holes for that subplot and I wish I hadn't.

Also, don't you love it when an advanced civilization that places such a high value on child development is not able to figure out something as basic as encouraging a child and being patient with them or treating a child kindly? <<less

Actually it's surprising to me that this story has a rating of 4.6...

I mean the plot itself is very messy, the plot keeps jumping from one thing to another without any definite explanation.

Actually I don't mind at all if this story has a light theme.

But from the very beginning, this story already has a lot of complicated plots arranged... and if the plot not completed, won't it spoil the atmosphere of the story that has been built on top of these plots??? In my opinion, if the author really wants... more>> to make a funny and light story from the start, then the author just should avoid making stories that are built from conflicts that are too difficult.

Besides that, the ML in this story itself really doesn't have a sense of existence, even if this story doesn't have title "ML" this story itself will still continue normally. <<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 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.
