It is very unique UF novel because MC has no power, not smart, doesn't know anything about games or cultural things despite being only 28. He has only this "reset" bug. But even not so strong not so smart person like him is bound to pass those levels because he has unlimited reset. In this regard he is very "fresh" MC.

Most instances are repeated again and again, tried again and again. The only difference is how he dies or how ML dies in each try. Because of this arc repetitiveness... more>> there are not many instances in this novel. Specially the last instance might feel boring with its ridiculous amount of reset and reading the same thing again and again. But bear with it. It is the last arc so.

It is more of a gore than horror. Ghosts don't possess that much power. There are more "monster" like creatures or human dangers.

ML is very likable in the beginning, but becomes more and more creepy and unsettling. His crazy personality is explained later but I still have this unsettling feeling about him. You would feel angry at him many times. Their relationship is weird. I don't understand how MC ignores everything and just be like "But he loves meeeeee..... I feel it" In every untrustworthy or unsettling situation. He also knows that ML is braindead, doesn't trust him at all, is paranoid, and jealous of every moving thing on earth. Yet still refuses to come clean or explain things with simple 1, 2 words despite knowing MLs jealousy is destroying and resetting everything 2, 3 times. It's kind of frustrating honestly.

Also existence of this world is not explained at all?

Overall it's fresh and interesting UF with time loop. But I don't find their romance that "romantic". <<less

It's really good! It has its flaws, but the MC and ML are both interesting and developed. Warning, there are dark themes in this novel (and horror, but you knew that) and the main characters have gray morals at times. Still, the overall tone isn't depressing or edgy. There are happy moments and angsty ones.

I really appreciate how the MC and ML feel like equals. Despite the MC's special power, the ML is still competent and arguably just as useful. At the start, I genuinely couldn't tell who was the... more>> gong or the shou, and I like that. You know what else I like? They work hard to trust each other. Some novels have couples who automatically trust or distrust each other, but this MC and ML have to work hard to maintain their trust. It just feels more realistic this way imo. They know each other is kinda sus, but they fight back their distrust. I respect them for that.

The ML's personality is also refreshing! He's like a puppy at times, haha. He's smart and competent, but he's not perfect. He does dumb things sometimes, but makes up for it. Also, the changes to his character (and the MC's) are really interesting and feel natural. Like, after going through all those instances... isn't it normal to change a little? I'm glad the relationship isn't a toxic one in the end. I'm still scarred by all those dominant/possessive/yandere gongs in BL lol. ML has some tendencies (being possessive after so many instances... can't blame him after the horrors lol), but he's still more of a golden retriever than a yandere imo.
How the MC and ML fell in love was also enjoyable. I didn't feel like they went through much annoying miscommunication, and they were pretty straightforward once they realized.

The side characters aren't the most fleshed out, but they're memorable enough. I like the monk, haha. Sometimes, I felt like some arcs were a little long, but I'm mostly impressed that the author managed to write so many repeats without it feeling boring. I read it in one go and never felt like stopping. The instances are also pretty fun and well-designed. I also think it's great how the author managed to keep the horror movie vibes despite the MC having that OP power of his.

The ending was decent. Maybe a bit abrupt, but you could tell it was coming. It was a little confusing for me (maybe I'm a little s*upid :P), but it was wrapped up pretty well. I'm still a bit confused, but it was an enjoyable read and the ending didn't ruin that. <<less

This is a very unique unlimited flow/infinite flow book. I have read many infinite flow novels, I dare say, and many of them have their own creativity. For this book, I don't think going back to a time point after death is a very, hmm, creative idea? (Not saying it's bad, but it is not that surprising). What really impressed me in this book is the MC is "real". He is like everyone living a common life. He is not a genius who can survive in a sudden survival game.... more>> The way he died didn't make me feel him s*upid, instead, I'll think it's reasonable and relatable.

His reaction about going through deaths a lot of times is also very real.

At first, he was traumatic about the pain, and he would stop taking death seriously, and when he lost his loved one, he would appreciate that he was able to go back through killing himself to save the ML. The most touching scene for me is that after being killed in desperation without knowing any clues about the game, he cried and didn't want to continue. That moment makes me feel him alive. His vulnerable, indifferent part makes him imperfect but complete.


Btw some people said it hurts, but I think it's pretty okay? (Meaning, not that sad) I think the ML is so adorable, and their interaction is so sweet. Generally, I'll say it deserves a try if you like infinite flow novels. <<less

An excellent infinite flow novel. MTL was a little confusing but this novel was good enough for the required brain cells.

The MC has only 1 unique power - ability to re-start the level once he dies. He is not super brilliant, deductive genius or even physically powerful. His only talent is to re-start. He dies at various nodes in the games only to re-start and carefully escape these nodes. Other players think he is some super genius, super senior player lmaooo.

ML is a professional game streamer and it shows. He's... more>> the one to find most clues (atleast before the re-start lol). He is also physically strong. MC agrees that if it had not been for his re-start ability, ML might be the real hero.

MC is constantly dying in various torturous ways (it's horror after all) and there are also many pe*vert/ crazy players who like to kill for fun. So, emotionally and mentally, MC starts to fade. He cannot sustain dying again and again. ML also notices that at the start of each game, MC suddenly starts screaming or crying or basically sweating and super panicky. He realises after a couple of games that MC is most likely dying and getting re-born.

ML comes off as smart and powerful and a happy-go-lucky guy. But we get glimpses to another side of his - killer yandere. Like legit he is yandere for MC. The last instance (which is super super long f*ck) exposes his yandere tendencies. He wants MC to be his priority and wants himself to be MC's first priority and will kill everyone else, no matter how good a relationship they build, to make sure MC is alive and well. In fact, ML has personally also witnessed certain scenes where MC gets killed and while he doesn't remember, seeing those objects brings him great rage and mu*derousness.

All in all, a great read. <<less

excellent novel! I really love the premise of this story. Imo, its a bit gory, and the horror/mystery is fun — but isn't scary enough to like, make-you-fear-walking-to-the-toilet. Just a tad bit graphic. The action scenes are brilliant too! The regression that MC goes through is quite unique from other unlimited flow novels i've read, sometimes you just feel really bad for him : (the pain he goes through + how everyone's memory in that instance is wiped out after, leaving only him to remember what has happened;... more>> it really is despairing, , ,

what I love about these types of unlimited flow is that MC isn't op (you'll see why) and the instances are actually fun and engaging to read, not just the leads boom boom power through everything. Its worth reading DEFINITELY!! The highlight of this novel to be honest has to be the ML. Hes VERY VERY different from any other MLs i've seen before. Heck, in the beginning I had to check who's the ML, I ACTUALLY THOUGHT HE WAS THE SILLY SIDE CHARACTER IN MOST NOVELS?? I was like oh this guys so cute I hope he doesn't di- OH MY GOD THATS THE ML?? Hes the happy-go-lucky puppy type gong. (Yea! Hes actually top!! I had to check so many times) I love him so much, hes such a good character. But, don't be fooled by the cute appearance, his deduction/analyzing skills are superb. If I had to say, the pairing is like: younger, energetic puppy gong x older, cold but gentle inside shou. SOOOOOOOOOO CUTE achjejfhfolen. So far its only been translated like 19% out of the whole novel, so don't start judging them now. Character development comes with time. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this novel, its great.

edit: ok so I donated to the tler's kofi and got access to more chaps, and

OH MAN, MC is more ruthless than I thought, scratch that, BOTH LEADS r quite violent huuuu THATS EPIC S HELL

its amazing so far <<less

(Disclaimer that I've only read the first arc so far.)

Really refreshing! MC has a reset ability similar to The Earth is Online or I Managed to Ditch My Single Status in a Survival Game (if you've read that one). However, unlike EiO or.... MDSSSG....... (WN titles amirite), which treat this ability as super OP and put limiters on it, Death Spiral leans into the idea of infinite resets in a way that's thoughtful and impactful. Just because the MC can redo everything, doesn't mean that the game will... more>> be easy to solve. Also, there are actual psychological ramifications for using this ability, not just as a result of (brutally, graphically, warning for gore, painfully) dying, but also due to the isolation of remembering things that others don't. I really like this approach.

The characters aren't s*upid OP outside of the MC's ability, and they don't have the predictable personalities that reappear in a lot of danmei. A lot of unlimited flow tropes get subverted/lampshaded and the side characters aren't just flat, unlikable cannon fodder (IMO). It's a bit early for me to pass 100% judgement, but as a big fan of the unlimited flow genre, I feel optimistic about this one, and I'm really looking forward about seeing where it goes. Give it a shot!!! <<less

i really really love the relationship dynamic (outwardly cold inwardly warm shou x outwardly a puppy-dog but inwardly blackened gong), the unique plot + premise, comedy and the *chefs kiss* angst of lovers separated through death.

for me, this was one of the novels where, when I was reading the translated version (in the first arc) I had a really big urge to mtl it because I loved it so much, but I also thought "the translation is really good tho..." eventually I gave into my urge to mtl it, and... more>> I do not regret it. its a pretty easy mtl, except for

the last arc, kinda got confused with the mtl mumbo jumbo about time and space

looking forward to read through the translated version once its done :)

issues I had with this book:


the ending: it seemed kinda rushed and disappointing to me. the author definitely could've put more thought into the ending, rather than it be "MC found out everything but ML knows nothing" and "yea a bunch of this stuff happened in the last cycle but I'm not going to explain how or show emotional flashbacks", which leads into the next point.

the previous cycle: since the MC died so many times in the first "instance" in present-time, how did he survive the previous cycle? this may have been mentioned in the last couple of chapters but mtl didn't get the meaning across (+ my memory about it is kinda hazy)

ML perspective: I don't know about other readers but I really wanted to read more about the ml's reaction to MC dying. especially with the recording (?) eyeball thing. I was so upset about it that I cried LOL (though that also could've been because of how heart-wrenching the situation was too...) I guess sometimes you just have to use your imagination...

mc's emotional numbness (?) : the first part of the novel I could definitely feel the emotions, but in the middle it kinda became flat? 2d? numb? although that it probably very reasonable given that he has died a number of times LOL. kinda felt like sometimes he was just an observer in the ml's journey. might re-read to check over this 'cause based off other readers reviews it could feel numb because it's a cold, hard machine translation rather than a loving and warm translator's translation. ily translator <3


aside from this, this is definitely one of my favourite novels (if not my favourite). so I 100% recommend that you read this! <<less

Good horror/survival read. An angst fest as the MC keeps dying and reviving and the ML and MC are always trying to save each other with self sacrifice. VERY similar to Kaleidoscope of Death, where players can keep living in reality only if they escape the horror level scenarios that appear when you enter an elevator. If you die in the level you die in reality. The gimmick is that the MC has the ability to restart any level after dying (he keeps his memories no one else does),... more>> so combining that with his knowledge and the ML's observation skills he is able to keep the both of them alive after a few tries. Most of the horror settings were fun, with gore common, and also some moments of (dark) comedy.

It isn't apparent that ML knows MC always dies and revives until later on in the novel. The ML is the talkative, puppy type, but his impulsiveness also causes the MC to die on occasion. MC is pretty nOrMal, he has a lot of courage to keep going after the terrible deaths. Usually his intelligence is decent, but comparatively less than the ML, who doesn't keep the previous memories if the level 'resets', but still manages to figure out how to survive and leave the zones. Tbh I think the author could've given the MC more moments to shine, still, he was reasonably smart. Thankfully he isn't a mary-sue either. I liked the concept of the MC and ML combining their talents to eventually survive. The ML isn't so OP that he can get through first try, and MC needs help piecing clues together.


While there were a few interesting side characters, the author didn't have them included in enough of the horror levels, so I didn't end up getting attached to any of them (I wanted to see more of white snake man and a certain psychopath). Many of the levels the author wouldn't develop the side characters much and instead focus on the main couple, having the MCs separate from the group or killing off 90% of all the players at the start.

My least favorite part is the last arc. It was pointlessly long (I mean 70 chapters for 1 level!!), double to triple the length of other levels, which would have been fine if it was an epic level with a final boss or something, but the setting was rather boring compared to the previous levels.

Final arc was mostly the daily life of the MC in reality, where the ML and players help him grow up from when he's a baby to 28, with each day in the game being a year of growth. Too much detail about him studying for exams and growing up. I didn't pick a horror genre so I could read slice of life with the occasional death...I preferred reading that only between levels.

It gets old after 70 chapters and much of it is in the POV of the ML. I preferred the POV of MC who was reviving and finding a way to keep ML alive. The 'schemes' of the other players are transparent in this arc and the ghosts are hardly threatening.

Also, the ML suddenly has a yandere side of him exposed in the last arc...? Although it had always been present during some life or death scenarios, it was weird he'd have this side of his personality compared to his usual friendly gamer personality (that I liked much more). The yandere thing felt cliché, like I was reading about 70% of the other MLs in BLs that are annoyingly obsessed with the MC (you know how they care about literally no one besides MC and also are extremely controlling).

I think the final arc would have been more bearable if the author skipped many of the daily life details. The novel itself could have included a couple more levels (there were 7 total) that were more complex. But maybe the author was running out of ideas lol.

Anyways, it was fun for what it was, and I enjoyed the angst of the MC dying over and over in horrible ways. <<less

Very short review:

This novel is f*cking amazing!!! Literally entered as a top lister for novels I’m reading or have read. It has an intense start and the following instances are equally as strong. I love our MC and ML, and how their whole interaction. I am especially fond of MC because he is just so... raw. His emotional changes and transformations really make sense. As of now I am waiting until ML fully remembers all of MC’s death coz why not? XD

I haven't really ever written a review before so...

I like this novel.

I really liked the all of the arcs none of them were too long or boring. Except the last arc. For me it's the second time I have ever completed a survival game novel. And it's probably the first time that I didn't skip any of the arcs because I felt they were too boring. Although, we don't really see to much of the side characters outside of the game. And I would say that I only really kind... more>> of cared about the side characters in the last arc but thats most likely because its the longest arc.

So overall I would give this a 4/5.


1- Garbage

2- Horrible

3 - Its okay

4 - Its nice

5 - Its pretty good <<less

I've read everything and simply do not understand how this has so many "good" reviews and appraisals, of course that with the premisse you start reading already knowing there'll be a lot of repetitions of the same thing but how can the author make those SO boring? Also the thing with the elevator where you 0nly hear about 2-3 times at first and then you only hear again at the end because the plot is so shallow that if she gave anymore hints about that it wouldn't matter how confuse... more>> she, the author, makes the plot, even a newborn would understand everything '-' The last "arc" was the most insufferable, in the half of it you just know that she was bored of it too and just copy and paste the text of the beginning instead of make the repetition of the plot more interesting with new differences, haha, and in the end too, LQ just acted as if he remembered everything that had happened so I don't understand what's the point of showing his different actions since it won't matter since he would "happen" to know what to do at all times. In the end you don't even know wtf you're reading, and I won't even mention (too much) the fact the people say that "wow they've grown so much" but if XRD just exists 1mt close to a female LQ just go full crazy possessive and XRD doesn't even bother to try and talk it out, I guess it wouldn't matter since LQ barely has any mental reason. You can argue, like the translator, that because of the game their reactions were realistic and yadda yadda, but I digress in the end there wasn't even love anymore, then suddenly they met again and loved each other like yeah sure lol, if this was really realistic after everything, they would just have died/killed themselves or go full psychopath, you can't have both when you're psychothic going trough and mental breakdown. The instances where so-so, the last one was the worst, idk, if this is your first unlimited flow type of novel it's ok but when you read novels that are actually good with good writing and plot you just can't accept these ones anymore. Anyways, 2/5 is already generous. Feel free to read if you have NOTHING better to read, like, literally nothing else. <<less

Adore this so much omg I can't wait for more chapters

Arcs are super interesting, characters are likeable, it has a good amount of horror (the gore feels unneeded but dw it's not that bad just a little uncomfortable if you're squeamish like me)

... more>>

Ch 73 though, , , that death, , bruh?? Imagine if there was no resets and the novel ended there ASDFGHJK this novel was easily 5 stars but I despise the trope of severe misunderstandings that could have been solved if they just spoke a few words. Fingers crossed it doesn't happen again


^ old review

updated review now that it's completed!


tentatively keeping the previous 5 stars but it felt like it went slightly downhill towards the end

I enjoy rereading novels and typically reread most that I rate 5 stars but tbh there's no chance I'll ever reread this one

that last arc itself being 77 chapters, was like reading a seperate novel in itself, but the early arcs were much much more enjoyable. There wasn't even any interesting horror plot in the last arc, random ghosts would just show up to kill them and disappear immediately when defeated--it felt like the author was getting tired

the explanation in the end was satisfactory but its one that is somewhat common in these types of romances

they were lovers before who lost their memories of eachother, have been trapped in the infinite games before sacrificing everything to save eachother

like it's not bad at all but still left something to be desired imo

maybe it felt mid because we only had one extra about them as a resolution, ending was fast compared to how long everything else was

also I realized through the last arc that I didn't really like MC or ML too much, theyre human with tons of flaws which is nice but too many flaws for my liking haha their actions annoyed me more and more


all in all, a lot of things felt needlessly detailed while other parts felt a bit random and never resolved

don't let my complaints prevent you from reading this though--this new review is just my opinion having read the final arc. The first half of the novel is absolutely 5 stars the last arc just doesn't hold up to how good the rest of it was unfortunately <<less

I really love it! It's a fantastic and totally recommend novel for you who love infinite trope!

The MC is just an ordinary person who has resetting ability in the level where he currently at after he dies. The ML is a professional streamer and comes off as happy-go-lucky guy who's also smart, strong and handsome. The ML is a loyal dog to our MC, so it's a plus for me.

Man, the angst in this novel sometimes just really hurts me bro. My glass kokoro (´Д⊂ヽ

I know it's a bit oot but as a nursing student, I really like how detail the author describing the ICU, some of the nurse's and doctor's job when MC was submitted to ICU after falls down from apartment with ML, and the information around medicine or psychology on author's note

This is the first time I liked a novel so much that I had to create an account to write a review.

If you're like me and have a niche liking for super angsty yandere BL stories with elements of transmigration or time travel, then you will definitely enjoy this novel as much as I did.

Not a lot of reviewers have mentioned that both the MC and ML are yanderes, so I will bring up this point first: they're both very well-written realistic yanderes. While they are good people at heart,... more>> because they experience a lot of psychological torment, their characters develop into yanderes over time in a natural and expected way. It's very realistic, and I could feel myself in their shoes while I was reading. I also found myself agreeing with some of their yandere actions at times, because I would definitely do the same out of desperation if I were put in such a horrible situation.

Anyway, it is rare for both the MC and ML to be written like real people instead of 2D characters, and this is the greatest strength of the novel. The story is able to progress well because of the development of love and angst which drives the characters forward. I should also mention that the MC and ML "don't immediately fall in love with each other" (I put this in quotation marks for spoilers), which is a rarity in yandere BL stories. There is an actual progression in their relationship.

There's a lot of other good points that I want to bring up, but I'm afraid my review will be too long. So I would recommend that if you like what I have said of this novel, you should give it a chance.

However, despite me singing these praises, I am not fully satisfied with the story. There are a lot of unexplained plot issues in the story. When I finished reading this novel, I felt a bit incomplete and left confused because there were multiple things that never got explained. I assume this is because the author changed their ideas a few times in the story or was trying to rush to finish it.


1. The readers are led to believe that there are 10 instances that players have to go through to be released from the instance hell, however there ended up being only 7. It is quite strange because we even meet a character who had supposedly gone through 9 instances before reaching his 10th with the MC and ML. I have a feeling this is because the author ran out of ideas for the instances and decided to just end it at 7.

2. In the final instance's second last run, the ML seemed to have fully regained his memories for some reason. It was never explained whether he just had a memory breakthrough on his own, or if it was because he used his key. However I suppose that he just remembered it on his own because the key is implied to have turned into the elevator button at the end. Either way, I really wished that the author would have written the perspective of the memory-awakened ML, because we don't get to see the full scope of the ML's emotional turmoil, and everything is very implied. I felt a bit blue-balled by this personally. What's worse is that at the end when they return back to their normal lives, the ML's memories of the past got reset again and he doesn't have the memories of the full story of him and the MC.

I have other little nitpicks about the story, but I think overall the good parts outweigh the negatives. It's just that I'm still left wondering about a lot of things, which is a bit sad.

For you who have watched Re:Zero (anime), you will definitely be familiar with MC abilities in this story (Basically the MC's ability is to repeat the events he experienced after he died).

So yeah, the story is good... I personally really like how the author can develop the characteristics of MC and ML.

The weakness in this story lies in the lack of explanation about the instance itself... there are many moments where it is said that MC and ML know when they will enter the instance, but there is no writing... more>> that explains how they know it.

Not to mention the lack of explanation as to why the instance exists (there is an explanation that says that people who enter the instance are people who are supposed to die, and by entering the instance they will avoid death, but this is not enough to explain everything considering there are appearances of people who fall asleep in a place that is like a gear at near the end of the story).

Not to mention the thing where MC admits that he has gone through 9 worlds, even though the maximum time he can enter an instance before finally being recognized as having passed is only going through 7 worlds, which is really like lazy writing by author <<less

Honestly, the biggest problem with this story is the MC. It's great that he's not OP or genius, but to me he seems very... lazy. He basically takes advantage of his savepoint (return to life) ability, so he doesn't try too hard and just goes with the flow of each instance without really thinking too much. Basically it's ML doing pretty much all the work, and there's no teamwork, because when the MC returns from the dead, he overcomes the key points of the game instance alone, with the information... more>> he got earlier, sometimes thanks to someone else. Well, that must be the point of having that kind of power, but on the other hand it feels like there's no character development beyond himself. ML is cute in the single but starts to fluctuate in personality afterwards, he seems to have secrets and the two have probably met before but the hidden plot wasn't enough to make me finish reading this. I really liked the plot of the instances, very well written. <<less

I really like that the author has knowledge on medical field. Working in a similar environment, whenever I find wrongly stated scenario, it irks me off. I like the somewhat realistic personalization of chara. I also enjoyed the inhumane torture MC and I admire his pain endurance.

Cons. I find sometimes that MC is too s*upid given his actual age. I often wondered that if I can think of a solution in the instance or in a scenario, why can't MC?

One of the best bl unlimited flow novel that I've read

(holy sh#t if I had known I would've let the chapters stockpile and read it after in one go.)

It just the couple dynamic is so...... Satisfying (I don't know how to put it but it just so good) and I like the fact that they're not perfect (They each have their own flaws).

Seriously I recommend this if you're into Manly (?) gay couple (the mc/Shou is not effeminate) and I swear, if I didn't read the translator... more>> note I would have thought that the ML was the Shou with how he acts.


I remember I read a chapter where the ML wanted the MC to "enter" him. It made me speechless how he was fangirling so hard 😂


Anyway the story is awesome too


right now the story is hinting that there may be some more at the main characters backstory.


And I love the realistic deaths, pains and emotions.


I've read a spoiler saying that in one of the ending arcs (don't know what arc exactly) the ML while have all of the memories of their death and that arc will be darkest of all of them.


Anyway for now I would give it a 5 stars (I would lower it or let it be depending on the following chapters but right now it's just my cup of tea.)

(sorry if there are any faults, English is not my first language) <<less

Wonderful novel!

It's a tad gory sometimes, but I really like this novel. The characters are very real, and the dynamic between the MC and ML is just something I love. The arcs aren't boring either, and they don't drag out for too long. I find them interesting and fun to read, unlike a lot of other novels where some arcs feel either way too long or too repetitive.

The chemistry between the MC and ML is my favorite... cold and cautious MC with a tender soft side x puppy-like happy-go-lucky ML... more>> who has a hidden dark streak. Their interactions are always so entertaining, and I really like how the romance didn't drag out for too long- unlike some other novels I've read. Also love how they aren't just OP, super monsters who blitz through every instance but are actually a hard-working pair, putting aside MC's reset ability. Even then, he doesn't feel unnecessarily overpowered.

At first, I even had to check whether Lian Qiao was the ML— or just a funny side character. His personality is just so different from other MLs I have seen, and I absolutely love love love him. He's just so funny, and such an interesting character, super unique. I f*cking love this guy!!! He makes me laugh so much.

As for the MC, I absolutely love the way he is written. Not overly smart, not overly powerful, just a dude given an ability that one wouldn't even know whether to count as a blessing or a curse. Sometimes the situations (and deaths) he's put through makes you really feel sorry for him. Just waking up right after a painful and gory death as if nothing had happened, as if that pain wasn't real, would really f*ck up one's sanity and leave some long lasting trauma, especially when he realizes that all the development his relationships went through would just disappear into thin air as if nothing had happened. The fact that the author acknowledges this instead of going 'Dude wakes up, dude knows what to do, dude finishes everything perfectly' is so refreshing. He actually goes through good development.

I haven't finished the entire novel yet, but I really, really love it so far and I cannot wait to read more! As of current, I would totally rate it 5/5. If the later chapters turn out to be not as good, at the very least, I can confidently say the first 80 are excellent and absolutely worth reading!

Overall, it's a very unique novel especially within the genre of infinite flow. I've read quite a few others and all have their charms and unique points, but nothing comes quite as close to this. Oftentimes I find that danmeis have very predictable and lackluster characters, with overused and boring tropes and traits. This one however, was quite refreshing when it came to the characterization of main characters and side characters alike so far, which gives it the final star for me.

I loved it. Nothing more to say! 5/5. <<less

I won't say much, all those reviews with 5 stars that get liked by many people already enough for you all to read without get spoiled much to maybe tempt you to read it.

Because it did get me hooked. Those reviews pull my interest. Then I'm in the right mood to read this novel. Then reading it really lead me to long curiosity till the end of the novel.

But I do advice you to really get in the right mood and mind, unless you're one of those rare people who... more>> actually so addicted by this novel so there's now way you will swayed away.

Why? Because our MC's 'cheat' ability. It gives you so many complicated feelings.

This novel is truly Gore. Our MC is not those Genius whatsoever. He's the normal 'smart'. While ML is actually the 'Genius' one in the game.

But ML also the Ray of Sunshine in this novel. He's the Brain, Brawn and the Light. While MC is the Battery and the Cheat.

Anyway it was Totally Different from many other Infinity Flow novel. Maybe even more Heartaches that Kaleidoscope of Death. But it has slightly different theme and tropes, so we shouldn't compare to that either. Anyway it's Unique and Amazing!

And thank goodness truly HE! In HEA way thank goodness!!!

The Yandere tag... I would say it's somewhat Mutual...? I mean, you can tell from other review who the mentioned as Yandere... but I would say it's somewhat Mutual.
