I'd really like to know how people rate things. So far, I'm liking this story. It's slow paced, and the actual plot is just starting to develop as of ch. 6, so it's too early to say whether it's a good or bad work.

The translation could do some improvement, and it gets more readable as chapters advance. I may change my rating as more chaps are tled and I can make a better judgement of this work. As of now, I'm really looking forwards to more chapters. Thank you, tl'r!... more>> (I can't post a moment in your LJ cause I don't remember my LJ's pw xD) <<less

Wow! This novel is really great ! Although its unlike other novels where more emphasis is paid on romance, here we dont get much lovey dovey moments btw MC and ML but in itself this novel is very entertaining . Its kinda like a slice of life, with MC raising black eggs and their journey to other world, the authors writing really keeps you interested and involved in the novel. I really like MC's character and espacially love how he treated black eggs like a human baby though he didnt... more>> have any form at all. We also see how he changes ML's life views and gives him warmth of family, how he changes from a cold person to someone who cares about his family. And the characters all are very well fleshed out and likable like their grandpa, and cutest of all black eggs. I would definetly recommend this novel for everyone. <<less

Through the journey of Ji Huan and Black Egg, you will see how big of the world, how demons can be cruel, and how one's life which played by fate can become.

But at a point of life when light shines through one's miserable fate, changes will occur. This tiny light dot will be slowly coloring the whole world and bring hope to everyone.

This light dot is called Ji Huan, a weak human.

This novel has eight arcs, and the first arc is their starting point. The writing style is soft and... more>> warm, but Yue Xia Sang hid a lot of knives in her text, she also dug a lot of holes full of contrasting emotions and placed a suspicious candy bucket at the bottom of that pit.

When reading this, I thought that I was not a passerby but part of them. It was like watching a group of small saplings slowly grow through storms and rains, until one day that they can bloom beautifully at the top of the world. <<less

Because of this novel which had me started reading other fabulous bl works. One can say that this novel is a gem 💎 for me at least and ai wish for it to be translated.

I'm obsessed with this novel. I'm currently dead tired and I refused to stop reading this until I finished ch. 46. I've barely scratched the surface of what this novel has to offer and I've already experienced moments of intense panic, worry, heartache, and crying. This story is just so beautifully written that I want a physical copy of it in my hand so that I can read over and over again, forever. I highly recommend reading it, for not only the awesome childcare but the relationships that are explored.... more>> It's a very family centered novel which makes it really unique in my eyes.

I live this story so much I don't even know how to Express what I feel about in words. All I can really say it that, "THIS IS A MUST READ!" <<less

So good. Soooooo gooood.

If it was difficult to understand from the above sentence than I will repeat and say that it's really good. The novel follows in a gradual manner. You can see the way the MC progresses through the hurdles in the unknown supernatural world and the Black eggs gives a lot of fluff.

I avoided the novel before because of its bad rating but it doesn't deserve it at all.

Heartwarming story. The story starts out not so attractive but getting better as it goes. Very good story and background setting, the writer created the world and it's resident very well. Characters have a dept to its which draw you to the story.

This story doesn't have a lot of action or romance. It focuses on the everyday life of MC and Black egg, how MC raise his nephew to be a very good boy, and precious family bound.

MC is great. Very charming character - kind, honest, upright. I like how... more>> he treasures his family.

ML start out as heartless but warming up along the way. He's quite a tsundere and likable.

Aye has a big heart. He raises two children beautifully. I like the story of MC and Aye very much.

And Black egg is such a good boy.

All in all, good heartwarming story that's lift your mood. <<less

A really intriguing beginning. The translation starts off a bit raw but as the chapters progress they get better. The MC is a bit slow, but seems to have hidden talents. The interaction with the sister was interesting as well, but tragic too. I hope someone picks up this novel as I would enjoy reading more and being able to see the little black bun grow older.

I had this novel on and off my To-Read list, and when I finally read it, I really regret that I didn't read it earlier. This is a marvelous work that's pretty original in its world-building and plot.

... more>>

In fact, when I first read the scene of MC's family and ML transferring to the monster world, the description gave the same feeling as when I first watched the day-to-night transformation scene in Spirited Away. I even heard the background music of The Dragon Boy!


The plot is amazing, and I'm impressed by the level of casual foreshadowing/detailing that the author laid in his descriptions, because almost everything introduced eventually becomes important in some way.

The shonen-ai tag really earns this name, as the romance feels like a blink-and-you'll-miss-it sort of way - the transition from strangers to lovers flows so smoothly that when the pivotal "confession" scene happened, I wasn't entirely sure it did, in fact, happen. And then the next thing I know, they're acting like an old married couple for the rest of the novel. Compared to other shonen-ai/yaoi novels, the romance in this is really low-key (and no NFSW scenes), but it works for this particular work, because the plot really keeps you riveted to the other mysteries and action happening.

The characters are colorful and pretty fleshed-out, and baby in this story is the best child character of all the works I've read. He fully stands out on his own as a third protagonist in this story (not like an cute ornament for the author to improve the MC's standing) and it's his actions that drive a lot of the plot elements.


I love how, despite being "cute" in the eyes of himself and his family, he can unintentionally scare people just being himself. Example - he's floating in a hot spring and playing, but from the outside, he looks like a horrifying water ghost. Another time, he's playing hide and seek with a bunch of kids (and their bodyguards), and because he unconsciously learned how to stalk from a professional assassin and has big glow-in-the-dark eyes, he unintentionally scared every single kid, guard, and staff member that he caught.


Every character eventually has their closure.

Including the sickly human friend - his ending, I didn't expect to see coming.


5 stars, all around. I'm satisfied after finishing this.

I wished the author would explain more about how the baby came about, especially considering who he eventually turned out to be, and more explanations about the baby's biological father. Still, it doesn't affect my enjoyment of the story. Give it a try! You won't regret it. <<less

I read all of the translated chapters-- started with the most recent translations that have very good English, then went to the earlier translations because they have more chapters done.

Don't read this if you're looking for a fast romance -- this is a protagonist-driven story where the MC goes through life at his own pace and only just meets up with the ML after a number of chapters. If you're interested in a heartwarming, family-driven story, though, this will be right up your alley. The most gory chapters almost made... more>> me cry with emotion and family love, and I had to skim quickly through some paragraphs to make sure things ended well after a particularly heart-quickening kind of arc.

Thank you so much to the translation teams, I'm going to be waiting eagerly for this to be completely translated. <<less

DON'T BE DISCOURAGED BY THE 1-star ratings, this is seriously good, the ML appears late but the relationship between Ji Huan (MC) and Black Egg/Hei Dan (MC's baby nephew) makes the wait more tolerable and is already good enough. This is seriously good. Don't worry everyone this is an HE. Enjoy!

To be honest, this was one of the most impactful Novel I've ever read in my life.

It has a charming story, an interesting plot and characterization. I love how natural it is for MC to make impact on everyone around him, and how he tried his best to raise his nephew with love.

The development of the characters is on spot, and honestly the ML is even more awesome with how he started as an as*hole to someone who tried his best to save his family member.

Also reading this story bought... more>> me back to the moment when I was a kid and scared to sleep alone and will always cried everytime I found out I was left alone. It was scary and it was conveyed so beautifully here. On spot. Honest to God, the family's genre here was so strong that if you want to read something heartwarming, do read this.

You won't regret this reading this. <<less

I want to say, why this novel rating 4.1? : ( (My opinion this novel is 4.5/4.6?

Why? Well mostly my opinion same like other reviews, this novel so good <333 altough the romance so sloww burn

But when ML slowly fallen to MC I'm like HELL YEAH FINALLY <3 it's like there a happy feeling want to celebrate this moment (lmao why I'm like this) when they are in relationship, the ML very warmth to MC, from he never come to MC's home or go to MC and never tell... more>> MC his plan to always come MC's Home, even sleeping to MC's bed as if it's normal 😂 and he become always say his plans to MC omg I love his development. Seems neutral but there is a development



in North arc, he is always remember to protect MC and his family 💕 when read the description this make me want to AAAWWW, sorry if I'm too hyper.

But near ending this is make me heartbroken😢 he not tell MC and his family what his next plan, he go alone to fight with final boss (?)

I'm crying in this arc, so much angst for me😭


But I'm dying to see them kissing, when the kiss came near the end of Novel (like maybe chapter 310? 312?314? I'm forgot, between 310-315) I'm like OMG FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY, and dying to seem them do the deed but sad there none till the end of novel :' (

And the second kiss in final chapter, I'm like THEIR SECOND KISSS ////U///) DO THE DEED ALREDYYY WHY YOU STOP? Sorry if I'm too Hyper 😂

At first I thought the ML is the black egg lmao like the mostly novels but nope I'm wrong.

I love Black Egg so much <3 (but my biggest love is to ML ehe) he so cute and precious 😭 make me want to protect him and make him away from sad feeling.

But there's make me shocked about Black Egg


omg is he a demon king's reincarnation? I don't know because I'm so confused with MTL but still shocked


I'm still interested with black egg dad and his mom

But sadly there no detailed about them : (

Once more, THIS NOVEL IS SO GOODD 💕 worth it for waste your time

You can MTL it, it's easy to read altough sometimes there a confusing words.

This novel worth it to have 5 stars 💜

Sorry for my bad grammar <<less

Very mysterious and intriguing premise. Really goooooooooooood and makes you want more. Once you read a chapter you would want to find out what's going to happen next. The author is good at giving the audience a cliffhanger. And TBH I jump from chapter 72 to the last 3 chapters just to find out what's going to happened to this not so normal family of Ji Huan.

Ji Huan is such a precious child. He loves and care for his family and those who showed kindness to him no matter who... more>> they are---- no matter what race they are. His driving force is his family so he treasures them so much.

The book's romance is really slow burned since I guess the author wants to focus more on the characters struggles on how to fit in on the world that would both accept his not so normal family.

Nothing much for me to say since I'm still reading it (and skimming till the last chapter lol @me) but the author's writing is great, and Chuuji's translations were good as well, tho it's sporadic but their reall smooth flowing imo.

So 4.1 for now. <<less

When I first read this novel, I thought it was uninteresting but I gave it a try and god I'm glad I did that. I admit that the beginning of the story is uninteresting but it gets better as you read more chapters.

The MC might be dull to some people but I find him interesting. He's a tsundere so it's understandable why he's so monotonous. He is cold towards everyone but very warm towards his loved ones. I find that very sweet. He's also strong and independent and that's why... more>> he is equal to a gong. Dang I love this MC so much.

I don't know much about the ml. What I know is he's a mystery guy for sure and he's apart of the secret organization.

The story begins with the everyday life of our MC, his devil nephew and his grandfather. It's like a slice of life novel at first but the drama and dog blood start at ch34. I'm really anxious and worried for the MC and his family.

I don't understand why this novel is so underrated. Okay the beginning is a bit boring but it will get better as you read more chapters I promise! So to anyone who's pondering whether to read this novel or not, i'd say y'all really should read it. Please give this gem a try. <<less

I honestly am loving this novel so far, those people who rated it one star I think I can see what you are disliking but since none of you have written a review on what you dislike, I'll go with the ML (look below). I used to avoid novels whose rating was below 4.3 and boiiii am I glad I decided on reading this, it literally made me reconsider my novel selection thingy (the 4.3 thing). It influenced me to give lower rating novels a chance, at first I thought... more>> I would hate this and those that liked this novel were crazy. But OMG I fell in LOVE with it, I went in with a negative approach and came out a complete fan!

Also regarding the one star thing:


At the part I am at the ML seems to be AGAINST the devils, like the organisation he's part is killing and experimenting on them, while MC is just trying to live his country life with his devil fam. And then the Mc's fam devils get captured, guess that may have put off some people as the ML allows this to happen with FULL knowledge that MC's fam is in his organisation's dungeon/lab (The ML and MC have yet to fall in love and are like closer than acquaintances but less than friend? Kinda) Still as*hole move tho


Also the interactions with baby is sooooo cute💕💕💕 I was creept out in the beginning but slowly came to appreciate his adorable antics and the connection between MC, Baby, and Granpa is beautiful, touching, and bittersweet in the best way! 💕💕💖💖💗💗💞💓💘💓💗💖 <<less
