I know it was bad but I couldn't stop reading and even reread it 4x times

FINISHED (total chapters are 80 + 8 extra chapters)

Ok, I totally forgot to put on this list but,..

... more>> Ive read this novel ears ago and even reread it multiple times, might explain why I haven’t forgotten it.

Its,... idk I can’t remember the whole details but I loved it. Not too long, not too short.

But there was a S/A scenes that was actually deleted or censored. That was their first intimate scene.

And after the it became a sh*t show.

I could you not, I barely could follow what tf was happening

Like it was a whole ass roller coaster, to the point idk who was who and which was which

The ML went crazy and did the worst thing he could do to MC and even while chasing he never gave the MC time to take a break from the trauma, just kept on relentlessly chasing (hardcore stalking) and bothering the MC.\

Now that I think about it, I feel really bad for the MC, cuz in the end all he wanted was to just survive,... in the end he still suffered and even the ending,....

The ending was an open ending,...

The MC just gave up,... he knew that the ML wouldn’t stop chasing him even till the ends of the world,.. not only that,.. by that time the ML already became OP,... So he just gave up, ,...

Which led to us having to think is this a HE?

Nah, for me its an open ending for sure <<less

This is really a good story. I already read all the chapter of this story. This such a good story, but..... For me, just me okay, the ending is not that satisfactory maybe because I read this novel raw and cant understand Chinese writing tht I google translete this, so the ending quite, a little, littttttle not my taste and not done for me like "what?!! Its already ending?? f*ck off!!!" or something like this.

But this is indeed a good novel. The misunderstanding is didnt dragged ofer the chapter,... more>> rather they solve it, and trala!!! They already solve it but of course they explained it quite clearly.

the system is soo hillarious. It is fujoshi system. It make me lol when it gave a courage for the MC to do that, and while the MC making love with ML, it open the comments coloumn on the MC brain, and make him see what respond from the readers when he making love with ML. I love that Fujoshi System ???

Just read this and give it try. Happy reading!!! ??? <<less

It's like The Scum Villain's Self-Saving System, except it's worser in quality in terms with the romance and the characters.

The characters seem more like archetypes than real people, and the romance is sudden and cliche.

... more>>

First few chapters and the ML immediately falls in love with the MC after MC treats him a little better. The problem is this transition was way too sudden, and the fact that the POV briefly shifts to the ML to tell us he fell in love with the MC is terrible. The author shouldn't make him tell outright when the ML fell for MC (Show, don't tell damn it!), plus his 180 change in attitude towards suddenly adoring the makes me roll my eyes.

The characters, are rather flat, as the story barely seems to expand on their backstory other than having the MC summarize what they are in the novel. ML's personality change suddenly made his main motive to be thirsty for the MC all throughout the novel. The author annoyingly shows us this everytime by linking conversations to the MC, like:

MC: ML you like me right
ML: yes
MC: what if I get bullied
ML: *makes a displeased look*

Why ask him that? What's the point of that, we already established he's already infatuated with him.

Now that might be better if it wasn't in the first 10 chapters, where I don't give a f*ck about the characters at the moment. Scum Villain did a better job by not placing in too much focus on the ML specifically in the early chapters, nor being too explicit on how he felt towards the MC.

It's boring to see them interact.

There is really no redeeming quality about this novel. There is no depth in any of the characters in the story. They are way too 2D and extremely cliche. Some people compare this story to "Scum Villain Self-Saving System". Hey human! The only thing that is similar apart from the transmigration setting is the yandere ML. 'Scum Villain' actually has a over-the-top hilarious MC, and has a plot, backstory and interesting characters. Although it has its own flaws and is only a three-star story for me, it's actually a nice... more>> story nonetheless. In contrast, "Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me" is full of flaws and everything falls flat and dull.



At first MC is just 19 years old and he is treated like a child. That is fine. He is a teenager anyways. And then there is a 3-year time skip but he is still the same. In fact, he regressed a bit because the plot needs him to be a mob character, right? Or else how is ML gonna protect him? Anyways he still protects ML every chance he gets because ML is just 16 by this point.

And then there is 10 year time skip after that. So now he is 32. But he doesn't act like an adult. Moreover, people around him still treat him like a 5-year old. At 32, don't people already have at least one child, if you follow the 'norm'? Then, why the hell does the author portray MC as a child?

When MC is 32, MC and ML are finally in a relationship but they have to hide it all the time. God, he is already 32! Why the hell does he have to feel scared all the time worrying about his bro-con brother? When he was just 19, MC's brother overprotective nature was justified but now that MC is already an adult but his brother acts like MC is a sixteen year old daughter having her first boyfriend.

Even when he is 32, he is still under a house arrest by his brother. And the dude obeys. I can't even!


Oh, and ML! At the beginning of the story, he is only 13. MC pampers him a lot and he gets spoiled. It suits a 13 year old guy. Then, after the time skip, he starts to show his romantic interest towards ML and does all kinds of things to get MC's attention. May be this is also cute or funny (I didn't find it cute or funny though). But after the 10 year time skip, he is 26 and he still acts like a child. He is extremely possessive. And he is too paranoid all the time. He always thinks MC doesn't like him. He feels he is not loved when MC spends time with his (supposed) family. He feels he is not loved because the first word MC utters is 'Big brother' when they are suddenly transported by an array to a different place.

MC's (supposed) parents just died and after a week or so, ML sneaks to MC's room and tries to force MC to have s*x with him. God damnit! What the hell is wrong with his brain?

Even their first time interc**rse was outdoors. MC's brother and teacher were just around them somewhere and MC warns this to ML, but what to expect of an insecure, 2D, sex-crazed yandere character?

And later ML again sneaks into MC's room. MC's brother enters the room. MC pushes ML inside the quilt. You have probably guessed it. ML starts touching MC's pen*s while MC is still talking to his brother. Is it supposed to be hilarious? Romantic? Sexy? Kinky? Mysterious? What is this supposed to be? I personally think this kind of action is a huge disrespect to your partner. And why do I see this in so many C-novels? My head hurts just thinking about it.

Side Characters

The most recurring side character is MC's brother, Chu Sheng. He is a big, big, big bro-con. The reason why he loves his brother, MC, so much is explained later in the novel. And that's as far as his personality goes. He treats MC as a naive, innocent 2-year old who doesn't understand the ways of the world even when MC is all grown up. After suffering one of his life's greatest hardships, his bro-con nature deepens further.

Another recurring but important side character is MC's teacher Lu Qinghe. He is a nice man but he is also too 2D. He is handsome, has face paralysis, tall, strong, aloof, taciturn and all the usual stuff.


One has to use magnifying glass to locate the plot. Literally everything is just brushed off. Its like when you wash your hands but there is no towel so you flick your hands. This is how the author has flicked all the logic and story out of the novel.

MC spends 10 years inside a Masouleum Ruins and in a blink of an eye, in the next chapter, ten year passes. Its always like that. MC and ML go to clear water ghosts but that also remains undone. And they go to an auction to buy a grass to attract those water demons but never use it in the whole story.


I really don't understand one thing about the majority of C-novels, of course including this novel. Why is it always that the 'bottom' has extremely low s*x drive in literally almost all of the C-novels? Why do they always have to hem and haw and everything when it comes to sex? Also, why are all these 'tops' addicted to sex? They act like s*x is a drug. The relationship between MC and ML in the novel is exactly like this. MC is perennially trying to keep his chrysanthemum intact even after they already did the 'deed'. Is MC supposed to be an asexual? Me being as*xual myself, I understand if MC is an as*xual but it is not mentioned in the story. In fact, this thing happens in most of the BL novels. Opposite attracts doesn't mean a sexually-aggressive person fits with a low s*x drive person. I personally think that's a torture.

If you have actually read all of my rambling until this point then I don't think I need to explain any further. Just stay away from this for your mental health.

One thing is good about the story: The protagonist really tries to capture the MC everyday! At least the title seems justified. <<less

I've only read four chapters so far, but each update cracks me up. Chu Yu enjoys reading a web novel called Supreme Sword Immortal until a canon-fodder villain who shares his name gets killed off. He retaliates by writing a negative review, stating that the Chu Yu of the WN has his name but not his intelligence. The next thing he knows, he awakens in the body of the WN's Chu Yu and is in a life-or-death struggle to get the readers' ratings up.

His plan is to survive by becoming... more>> a valuable brother to the WN's main character, Xie Xi. Unfortunately, the WN's Chu Yu has abused Xie Xi for three years already, and Xie Xi absolutely fears him and hates his guts. When Chu Yu starts helping him, Xie Xi naturally responds with paranoia and a sharp sword at the ready.

Chu Yu has to slyly help raise Xie Xi while being wary of readers' reviews and fighting for his own life in the Xianxia setting.

So far, it has been very funny, and I look forward to every new chapter each week. The action scenes aren't half-bad either. <<less

I read through the entire story, and it's one of the best BL stories I've read. The ML and MC go through lots of character development and growth to a happy ending. MC is witty, smart, and caring towards the ML, and their interactions are some of the best parts of the novel. ML in turn is devoted and protective of MC.

... more>>

MC is dense at first, but events will speed up early on (around chapter 25), so it won't be a drawn-out loop of misunderstandings and ignorance of ML's feelings. Regarding their relationship, the author does a great job of exploring MC's inner feelings as he gradually accepts that he's not as straight as he thought and confronts his feelings towards the ML. It's believable.

There are a few suffering and truly heartrending scenes, which make the story beautiful, but at the same it's still a very happy ending.


The side characters are complex and not flat stereotypes, making them very lovable, and I enjoyed reading about them. The author provides reasonable (and unexpectedly deep) backstories for why characters act like they do, ex. Why the elder brother is such a brocon and why ML has yandere tendencies. Likewise, plotlines are nicely tied together, and by the end of the story, all the plot holes have been neatly tied up.

Cultivation, world-building aspects are nicely done.

Overall, absolute masterpiece, interesting supporting characters, cute pair of MC and ML, 11/10 would recommend. <<less

Ok so far we know that the ML has yandere tendencies~
"What could go wrong?" Said the MC. "He's just a little child who needs love and care afterall."

[And then rivers of blood spill all over the plac-*coff coff* Tecnical difficulties. Stand-by.]

I think the ML. Has a STRONG yandere tendencies!


The story is funny so far~
A little bland.. but I like! No hate~ No hate~


Oh right!

The morale of the story is...
If you want good review. Need a story that can catch fujoshi audience.

This is just very meh overall. The similarities to SVSSS that others have noted aren't unfounded. You’ve got a possessive ML who the MC – a transmigrator into a canon fodder villain who dies horribly – helps ‘raise’, trying to get him his destined harem, and then gets blindsided by the ML’s hots for him. It’s not as well-written, though, or as funny – but the MC is his shixiong instead of shizun, so there’s that.

The plot goes all over the place, and it’s very hard to tell what exactly... more>> the end goal is supposed to be at times. The ML is that annoyingly possessive, oppressive, overly-s*xual yandere type that makes my skin want to peel itself off. There’s a lack of details, plot threads can go nowhere, and the ending isn’t very satisfying – it kind of just does. <<less

I very much respect the work of this translator, so I was generous in my 2-star rating. I started reading this project with high hopes. Sadly I just don't think that the source material is strong enough to keep my interest.

In other works with a transmigrated MC, the writers have been able to maintain the integrity of the protagonist in the fictional world as a protagonist. Here, the principal character that advances the plot of the story within the story is the transmigrated MC, which I didn't like--mostly because I... more>> really liked the ML (the protagonist in the title!).

Generally, I'm okay with a slowish burn waiting for the main relationship to solidify, but once it does, I'm ready to get on with the plot when there's clearly more plot to explore than just the main relationship.

It happens that the last available chapter that I read foreshadowed some, to me, illogical plot complications for the MC/ML that just weren't at all something I would enjoy wading through so I dropped the novel from my reading list.

I wouldn't normally bother with a review when I've dropped a novel. However, this story began so promisingly that being so profoundly disappointed by the way things were progressing, I wanted to share my thoughts. <<less

I have been following the translation of this novel for a long time, so let this old woman say a few words about it.

I originally came here for three reasons:
1. My favorite group of translators took up this. Since I trust their taste, I decided to try it and did not regret it.

2. This is xianxia. Chinese fantasy is significantly superior to any other similar genre, because it has an absolutely unique set of lines that you will not find in others (for example, in Korea and Japan, the... more>> “european” style of fantasy is preferred).

3. Well, that was BL...

Okay, now seriously.
The size of this novel is ideal: it is not too long, not too short.
It has good characters: in addition to the main characters, you will meet a number of interesting personalities that will make you worry about them. I like it when the plot is not focused on just one or a couple of people.
There is no... or almost no... ML aggression. There is EXACTLY no s*x by doubtful consent or coercion (this is an important point, since similar tricks in other novels bring me to the grinding of teeth), and relationships develop not only gradually enough, but also much more calmly. That is, the main character does not suddenly jump in the middle of the night shouting: “MOM, AM I REALLY GAY?!”, nope, lol. He is an adult and understands quite well what kind of feelings he experiences, and can accept them without breaking his psyche. I would say... this novel reminds me of SVSSS, but much less traumatic for the psyche. Enchanting enough, interesting enough, funny, and sometimes touching and serious - I don’t know why I’ve never heard of this novel before, but, I tell you, it deserves attention and a good audience.

P.S. Oh, yea. There is no detailed description of the bed scenes. It turned out to be a novelty for me, but it did not spoil the sensation at all, on the contrary, everything is fine here and so. This does not imply a lack of intimate moments, just forget about bed scenes. In my understanding, it can even be hotter. <<less

I need a break from this.

I tried to read this fully but during the c55 I was so tired of this that I've made a break for the next few days.

c76 and I feel like I am slowly losing my brain cells.

The relationship of the main couple is just terrible. ML is always h**ny, even when MC was just told that his brother will lose his arm lol. In the first chapters I liked MC and he was relatable as a 21st-century man, but then... meh... He doesn't know what he really wants and he is being manipulated by ML in many ways

Side couples are the same. OMG THE DRAMA. The doctor and MC's brother can't be together! Shocker. Even though MC is literally screwing with his shidi who is younger than him. MC LITERALLY SAW HIM f*ckING GROW UP AND EVEN CONSIDERED HIM AS HIS SON (MC is really a daddy, huh)


Well thanks, but no thank you. I will be leaving this for the future (If I have balls to finish this monstrosity) <<less

This story is highly overrated.

I read 'The Scum Villain's Self Saving System' before this so this just seemed like a bad imitation of that. The characters here lack depth and there's practically no character development. There is a change in how the 'protag' sees the actual protagonist (the pov the story was written from) but it seemed very forced.

I was on the 41st chapter when I stopped and there were already 3 mxm pairs so at that point it just screams fan service. The one smut scene I've come across... more>> so far tells me the author has no idea how an*l works, in stark contrast to TSVSSS (I can't help but compare all throughout my reading lol). TSVSSS felt more like an actual story where the gay couple is just part of the plot's natural progress whereas this feels written entirely for readers who enjoy reading about fetishized mxm relationships with 'plot' thrown messily in between them. <<less

Reminded me of SVSSS but the difference is that this novel is about a Shidi x his Shixiong. Very cute and a bit dark. ML is very protective and possessive and caring and sweet and a big puppy. MC is so cute, sweet, caring and strong. A power couple. Top quality gong/seme and also a top quality shou/uke. Fluffy and enjoyable. Sweet. Lovable side characters with side CP.

The story that was the first to bless my eyes and lead me into the inescapable realm of Chinese BL Web Novels.

Top-notch humour with such splendid chapter titles as 'Hello, homo'.

Top-notch ML, borderline crazy, just how I like 'em.

Top-notch bro-con.

Has my ideal balance of romancing and plot.

High re-read factor.

One of the better "x raised y but turns out y is in love with them!" novels out there. While there isn't a super smooth personality transition/enemy to lovers change between the ML and newly transmigrated MC, it's still a very enjoyable novel. I personally enjoyed the fish puns/allusions based on the MC's name and the comment barrage from the readers!

MC is likable, but a tad dense in the beginning toward's ML's feelings for him. Trying his best to raise the ML nicely so he won't kill him in the... more>> future as planned, MC comes off as a little bit of a kuudere at others in story, but since we're privy to his thoughts, we see him flail about in his head to do his best. ML is very very sticky, sticking close right from the beginning and tries to catch and eat the fish that captured his heart.

plotwise, it's pretty good but the main focus is really just the relationship between the MC and ML. The background plot is your typical "trying to follow the plot till the end" story, with the MC sweating to make sure they reach a good ending. I will admit that I mtl'd to the end, and honestly? The ending was so anticlimactic I literally went into the side stories without realizing the main story was over.

It's not without it's faults but the characters are likable, the plot is interesting, and overall it's an enjoyable story. It's definitely one of my favorites that I have no problem rereading. <<less

Ahhh! It's a good read, if you like 'The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love', then you'll also like this one. I cried at c26.3, the MC isn't useless and actually is brave even though he's scared for the ML. You get to see their relationship blossom and grow, I can't wait to see how it will develop.

The MC isn't a genius and his actions are understandable, he's relatable and funny at times. The ML is adorable and cute, but... more>> sly and cunning. He doesn't start out as an all powerful person, you get to see his growth and he's actually quite pitiful tbh. So far the read has been very interesting but I'm dying at the cliff hanger atm. <<less

Amazing read. The characters are great, especially the MC and his interactions with the ML. The plot is interesting, but the writing and the execution made it better, though admittedly some parts felt a bit bland.

There's a lot of similarity between this and another novel, The Scum-Villain's Self Saving System, but both carry their own peculiarities. Both are BL, involve a reincarnated protagonist, have a younger love interest, are prominent figures within a sect, are trying to avoid the "bad end" where the main character grows into a villain and kills them. Would highly recommend if you're into this teacher-student dynamic. I love me a good BL, mmm mmm.

Very enjoyable. Well written and translated. I like that there is a bit more of the cultivation/fighting aspect than some Danmei novels. Although it could do well without. There is still a ways to go, but the story has been set up very well.

I guess if things go sideways I'll come edit my review, but I'm feeling pretty positive. We just need our ML to grow up at this point!
