061: Hello, here’s a brief rundown on the scum gong reconditioning system. This system measures the regret level of the scum gong. Every time their regret level reaches one hundred points, you will be able to leave the current world. A friendly tip, usually, through dedication and self-sacrifice, our employees slowly foster a sense of dependency in the scum gongs, gradually making it so the scum gongs can’t live without them.

Chi Xiaochi: How many regret points is a complete loss of reputation and standing worth? How about a fall from grace? Or wanting something but never being able to obtain it?

Just finished this novel and I cannot withhold my excitement. After FOD, every novel I read was good but like abt same and the MCs are basically carved from the same mold but this, this novel asks the real qns and explores the Lord God being a villain and has an actual MC who schemes only against the scum gong and leaves the other smaller villains a possible path out. Highly highly recommended.

If there's a 10 star, I'll give it a 10 star rating.

My 1st QT novel was QWTFOD, and it's probably one of earliest ones of the genre and most prominent, so I feel like every other similar novel is a reproduction of the the novel with slight differences. Some were nice others were just cliche n tacky.

This one is by far the better one. The MC is a scheming genius, he calculates every move to ensure success, everything has a purpose, and his mind runs deep. Despite that, he retains... more>> kindness and gentle at times. Truly a smart MC. Totally my type of MC.

ML is still not much explored at the stage I've read, but I can see their attachment to each other despite the fog separating them. The main villain controlling their fate is heinous, OMG, I so feel for them.

So far only 1 world is finished, but I just have a sky high expectations of this novel. I kind of want to go back and lower the review I gave to other QT novels I have rated. Lol

It's just the world building in this novel is beautiful, the story runs smoothly, not a single chapter was boring, and all heartache and pain was described in a way that makes me feel it. The author doesn't gloss over disturbing fact.

I truly recommend reading this novel. Both this and QWTFOD are good entry point to the genre quick transmigration.

A shout out to the translator and the team at CG for picking up the novel, as always the translation is easy to read and no glaring grammatical mistakes. <<less

Is there such a thing as a perfect story? I don't know. But this novel certainly came close, I can't even see it as a story sometimes.

Just as a warning, this story isn't like others in the genre. It covers heavy topics with the realism and complexity it deserves, so I'd like to mention these trigger warnings:

... more>>

Emotional abuse and manipulative behavior and classic alienating techniques in the first world, extremely violent domestic and animal abuse in the second world, gaslighting and manipulation in the third, non-detailed past rape (?), physical and emotional abuse as well as possessive behavior in the fourth, and child abuse and neglect, repeated and systemic s*xual abuse towards minors by adults in position of authority (here by a teacher) in the tenth world. This also involves victim shaming of rape victims, especially of male victims.


Chi Xiaochi does not play god and lets the owners decide their next steps regarding their abusers, and actively paves the way for them to a brighter, healthier future.

Chi Xiaochi is the best MC I've ever had the pleasure to know. The premise of this novel is "Scum Gong reconditioning", but in the hands of Chi Xiaochi it is so much more-- rather than revenge, what he truly focuses on is the future emotional wellbeing of the people whose lives he's redeeming. This difference is incredible, because then he treats the lives he temporarily takes over with utmost respect; this is not a frivolous game, nor a simple task-- it's a life. This man is the most empathetic, compassionate, strong, intelligent, and incredible individual I've ever had the pleasure to know.

But those types of people are rarely born from happy lives. As the story progresses, we get to see how the Chi Xiaochi of today came to be born, and why he wanted to go back to his world just to sweep a childhood friend's tomb.

061, his system, finds it curious, too. Step by step, world by world, he becomes more and more emotionally invested in his host, and discovers the entire entangled truth underneath it all....

CP details:


061 (Lou Ying) / Chi Xiaochi. 061's original identity isn't a secret for long and is part of a deeper storyline, so you do find out early. Lou Ying is incredibly sweet, attentive, and patient with Chi Xiaochi. He is protective as well, but is staunchly respectful of CXC's individuality, never forgetting that he is his own person and never acting like a "jailer".

They have a happy ending, and the extras cover their post-canon sweetness. It's really helpful because the last arc will beat you black and blue.


CP past details, for anyone who might worry about some of the trigger warnings:


Last world is a parallel world Chi Xiaochi, who committed suicide at age 14-15 and accepted the contract as a host for a chance that his Lou-ge might live.

Here we get details on what actually happened: Lou Ying died pushed out of the window by a middle aged teacher who was attempting to molest 14 years old Chi Xiaochi. The man then set it up so that it looked as if Lou Ying attempted to rob him, and for months Chi Xiaochi attempted to reopen the case for proper investigation and failing. In reporting it daily, he had to reopen the scars of being molested many times. Nobody believed him, so he took matters into his own hands, stalking the teacher and recording blackmail of him trying to lure other teenage boys, and eventually beat the man with an iron pipe when he almost raped another boy. At the hospital, he used the blackmail to stress the man to death.

Realizing that there's an unbearable void in his chest that he can never do anything about, Chi Xiaochi planned his own suicide with the same care he planned that murder.

In this parallel world, Chi Xiaochi jumped.

In the original world, Chi Xiaochi remembered the blind yellow dog he and Lou Ying adopted, and then how there's nobody to sweep Lou Ying's grave....

And now they are here: host, and the man who will take revenge on the abuser who murdered his Lou-ge.


Main plot details:


Lord God is big bad asshole and tries very hard to make Chi Xiaochi not return to his own world-- when that fails, he tries to get him killed, then has him kill other people with his bare hands to forever stain him and make him unable to face the modern world.

Chi Xiaochi shows off his big d*ck energy and replaces him as the Lord God, and does his best to ensure all past victims, both hosts and systems, are given a second chance, as well as setting a system where systems can ask for best way to proceed to ensure humane conditions.


Ngl, this novel ruined me forever. Please read it. It will be very well worth your time, I promise. It is more than 5 stars. For Chi Xiaochi, I'd give him an entire googol of stars. <<less

This is literally one of those life-changing, genre-changing novels that after you read, will make you want to revisit (and possibly lower the rating) on other novels you have given 5 stars to in the past.


I could go on for 10-pages about everything I like about this novel. I will attempt to keep things short:

    • The MC is truly a genius/mastermind, and boy is it AWESOME to see him in action. I guarantee this story will be unpredictable because of how smart everything is done.
    • Every world is very detailed, the world-building makes you live it (show, not tell), and each world is a twist on common tropes found in romance/BL/other transmigration stories. Recall the yandere ML? The childish tsundere? The overbearing CEO? You can find a dose of reality in these stories that parody the cliched and romanticized views found in other novels. And it's GREAT.
    • The author is incredible at crafting characters and relationships. I still remember almost every single world's main and side characters because of how unique and memorable their personalities and actions were. That's 10 worlds, and a LOT of characters.
    • The main romance (and side romances) are seriously beautiful. We get crafted little details like a character's dislike of the waffle part of an ice cream cone, a hand-drawn storybook, or how a stray dog they picked up got his name changed. Little things seem unimportant only to make a big emotional impact later. These details truly make everything feel real.
    • There is continuity despite it being a QT/multi-world transmigration novel. The continuity is extremely intricate, detailed, and everything makes logical sense.
    • There is an undertone of realism. This makes tragedies even more tragic (prepare those tissues!) but also the redemption even more satisfying.
You don't get:

    • Obsession with Chinese-only culture/superiority/nationalism
    • Predictable cliches, overused storylines, paper-thin cannon fodder
    • Unequal relationships or romance with one partner doing everything for the other
    • Overly summarized plotlines (most QT novels will do this)
This is a long story, but it's completely worth it for the ride. I have never been so immersed in an author's works before this. This is a freaking long story but I seriously wished it never ended. I give 1000000+ thumbs up!

Although, I'm only in the beginning of the journey and may change my opinion later on, but can't skip the current joy while reading this novel.

Good parts so far are:

  • Characters, although packed with standard stuff of intelligence and talent they yet feel refreshing;
  • Great story-telling, unlike many other quick transmigration stories, that dump the supposed turn of events in one chapter, DPUBFTB divides that into parts and adds them at the right time. Like in first arc telling the story of MC and slag gong when they meet, adds the turning point later on when story starts to involve music to unveil the conflict and the original tragic end comes later with the whole family drama. I find this type of positioning quite nice, because it emphasizes the moment instead of trying to absorb the whole turn of events at once when you don't know characters and, actually, don't really care about them. But that subtle commenting between the lines on original tragedy makes more impact on who characters are;
  • The fact that story deviates according to MC's plan. Tbh for me it's kind of boring if characters have to follow the plot to the t and can't have deviations, it's forceful and often times contradicts the MC's nature. With CXC everything is different, he uses his intelligence and snaps back beautifully.

  • CXC became the best part of it all and I actually plan on reading the entire novel despite anything that might happen, because I fell in love with him. I love his kind, he's witty, knows how to argue, which brings me satisfaction, but behind all that you can quickly catch up his kind nature. He treats the original host's life with great care and wants the best possible outcome. Also unlike many MC's he doesn't come into the world empty-handed, MCs often time find ML along the way and then fall in love, but CXC has someone in his heart he holds really dearly and that actually makes his vulnerable part that makes him different;
  • ML. Time and time again MLs come as obsessed, oppressive super gongs, often it feels like they force their feelings unto MCs, as a high contrast to that ML of DPUBFTB is gentle and caring, he actually reminds me of a sea, his calm nature provides that peace of mind for the MC.
Knowing that this novel is 270 chapter long, my anticipation for continuation... more>> is huge. <<less

Ahhhhh!!!! I wish I could give this more than a five - that's how good this is!!! ୧ (☉□☉) ୨ I've read the translated chapters and a few more in MTL and I have to say, I'm completely psyched to read the whole novel. The writing is wonderful amd this becomes more evident due to the EXCELLENT TRANSLATION. The translation is one of the best I've read to be honest. (゚ヮ゚) As for the MC & ML : The setting isn't completely clear yet but the MC seems to... more>> be the cool headed clever type that is REALLY GOOD at scheming. But he's very compassionate towards the original body and that's not something you usually see. All the reviews have already mentioned about the plus points of the novel and I have to agree that this is a masterpiece. I don't know if it'll be the same later on but this is definitely worth reading based on the few chapters that have been translated. Rather than just simple face-slapping and counterattacking, the novel puts a lot of emphasis on character development - both for the MC & ML and for the characters whose bodies the MC occupies during the missions. The ML becomes quite obvious to the readers after a few chapters but there are a lot of complexities involved which makes me want to madly MTL this. Alas, the MTL is worse than dog s**t compared to the translation so I can only hope for the translators to pick up their pace ASAP! _ (:зゝ∠) _

There are a few spoilers and warnings though. Just as it's been mentioned in the previous reviews, the novel has quite a lot of angst. I couldn't help reading the spoiler to keep my heart safe. Firstly,

the author's note in the TOC quite clearly states that the system is the ML gong. As we read further, we realize that he's the MC's childhood friend+crush who had died in their original world. Some of the spoilers in the other reviews say that he died to save MC from molestation and all but I can't comment on that till I've finished reading. He seems to be very caring about the MC despite losing his memories.


There's also some intricate plot relating to the MC, ML & the lord god. But I guess we'll need to read further into the novel to know that. Overall, it's a MUST READ!!! (●♡∀♡) <<less

I'm still at the 2nd world but the target there is f#@king crazy.


He cooked MC's dog!


Our MC is amazing though, it's like the enemy takes one step but he already has planned 100 steps ahead (Plan A, Plan B, Plan C).

Nice story so far; the MC is calm, has humane feelings, and retains a desire to go back to his og world.

The thing is, the time MC will spend in various worlds is equivalent to how much time goes by in the mc's og world. Therefore, the MC has the motivation to complete system tasks as fast as he can.


Great start, I'm hoping the rest will be just as dazzling.

This will probably rival my love for FOD (blasphemy!).

It is set with almost the same premise as FOD, a host gets paired with a system, and after completing 10 worlds, the Lord God will grant one wish to the host.

The host needs to help the people to counter attack against despicable scumbags of a gong and raise the Regret Meter of the slag gongs to 100 point before they could go to a new world.

The MC really reminds me of Zhou YunSheng of FOD. Arrogant, lazy, super intelligent, charming, playful,... more>> and doesn't take the easy way out when counter attacking.

The System however isn't like any I have read (Thank God). He is a gentle, charming, hardworking, innocent, warm cinnamon roll and must be protected at all cost!! (T^T)

Anyway, there seems to be a history between the two of them, but both of them don't realise it because memory swipe. #A$$HoleLordGod.

Anyway, why you should read this:

  • MC and system are so funny and warm together. But they are just friends. Yup.
  • The heartache of the host shou will push you to want to personally kill the scum gong.
  • Conspiracy between the Lord God and the system worlds.
And I'm reading all this on MTL so imagine how good reading the translation will be. <<less

I finished the first arc and I could not contain my excitement! One of the best twists on system novels I've ever read. You get a tantalizing set up near the end of the first arc which really changes the mood up from a typical system novel! I wanted to quickly write a review on novelupdates before I dive back into the story and to increase the rating!

i only read to the end of the first world and already things are very complex, bouncing back and forth between the MC and... more>>

the Lord God and all the systems. Right now it seems like LG is the big bad of the novel and he never fails to piss me off

once I realized just how complicated everything is I decided it was better to wait for the translations so I don't miss things with MTL. Looks like there is a lot of scheming and behind the scenes maneuvering and politics so I might not like it but i'll give the translations a try at any rate (not a big fan of politics and scheming). The MC is the cool calculating type but he's also very human and flawed, so it's easier to relate to him as a person and the ML is broken and not the object of the raiders. <<less
