This novel has many reviews and my addition really isn't necessary but I'll still put my thoughts here.

Your experience with this novels really depends on what you think you're getting into when you pick it up. Don't go into this expecting an infinite flow strategy story full of heavy non-romance related plot. This is a romance through and through; there's really no plot beyond that. The name is misleading.

The setting is pretty interesting, the stakes are high and there's lots of mystery. It's built well but the way the story... more>> goes you would think it's a cutesy system QT novel.

The initial setting:

Spoiler
    • The people there are people who were abandoned by everyone and gave up on everyone.
    • They get transmitted into this world were they have to complete randomly assigned worlds every 2 days or they will no longer exist.
    • If they happen to die in these world they really die unless the world they got happens to have a reload function which most of them don't or they have a revival item (all limited use).
    • The difficulty of they world is linked directly to it's level but the points and rewards are also linked to this and the level you get is completely random and only depends on your luck.
    • You get experience points if you clear the world and if you reach a certain level you get a promotion and you can rest a bit more in between missions however if you can't complete the mission you are permanently stuck in said world until you die.
[collapse]

The MC:

Spoiler

Not my type but not too annoying either. This character is smarter than your average person but not as smart as an infinite flow player so it's a good thing he isn't actually one.

This guy is lucky and very much so to the point that it's ridiculous and it really became stale and dissatisfying after a while.

In the end we get told that if it were not for the desperate measures the the ML took, he really would have died early on which makes it clear that his skills and luck alone weren't enough for that kind of setting and that is apparent from the beginning.

After we find out what others go through in that universe and how comparatively easy the MC had it, relying so much on the ML and his luck, everything the MC has by the end feels very unearned and therefore the story became kind of hollow for me.

[collapse]

The ML:

Spoiler

He's kind of annoying but isn't that bad. At least he isn't a domineering CEO who is exceedingly controlling. He's possessive and stuff but he isn't yandere-ish which is a plus for me. He's a huge golden finger for the MC though and I honestly didn't like him much.

[collapse]

The relationship:

Spoiler

It's okay I guess but how it happened kind of disturbs me.

In the 4th arc the MC and ML go to a zombie world and there the MC starts to slowly have a better impression of the ML which is okay but then they get stuck in a dream together where they live for 60 year (in the dream. In reality only one day passes). In that dream, they have no clue about the game world or any of that, the MC is back in a very vulnerable and desperate point in his life with no recollection or impression of the ML who is his uni teacher in this dream. This teacher helps him which is fine but then he grooms him. He gets him to work for him at his house, then live with him, all with the intention of slowly seducing him and he proceeds to grooms him and after that the MC falls for him completely.

The ML falls for the MC because their souls are compatible. He looks into the various future routs, decides he doesn't likes them, sees MC who is essentially his soulmate, sees that he dies in all those futures so he starts making worlds to be with him.

I personally hate that "love at first sight, soulmate" trope so personally I didn't like it much but their relationship was still leaps and bounds healthier than many other QT novels.

[collapse]

The senarios:

Spoiler

Repetitive.

The MC essentially just had to maintain a harem most of the time (all the people in the harem are ML, or his soul shards to be exact), even the heart taking missions didn't actually require him to seduce or put in much effort, the ML's soul shard all fall naturally by themselves.

The worlds and character personalities differ but still it get repetitive and starts to feel very cheap very quickly.

[collapse]

The side characters are interesting but they just disappear after their brief period of existence and we never hear from them again. There are also tons of loose ends by the end that just get dropped.

Also don't expect any description of their intimate moments, while the references to it come up all the time the acts themselves aren't described. <<less

The protagonist is basically a very talented gamer in the real world. However, for some reason he was transferred into a game with an s-class hardship. For beginners, experiencing this game would lead to mental destruction because of repeatedly getting killed and due to its difficulty. However, our MC is different. He not only have the experience of playing multiple games but is also mentally strong that he solved the infamous unsolvable game that was created by a genius game designer.

Though it's still ongoing, I already liked the plot and... more>> the characters. This author really doesn't disappoints. The mystery, the game settings and how our MC try to solve the game is the center of the plot.

As for the ML, I am a hundred percent sure it's the genius game designer named 'x'. He's famous for creating really hard and sometimes unsolvable games. Thus, when the MC, a beginner solved one of his hard games, he took interest to our MC.

I can't wait for the author to update! This novel is really promising. <<less

This novel starts out strong but quickly becomes repetitive. The premise and events of the first 2 arcs are very creative and entertaining. However the main character never develops. He's teleported to a world where he constantly fights for survival but doesn't question it or try to understand what's happening. He spends time relaxing and treating real death like a game. The scenarios are also become repetitive where pointless gay comedy romance banter fills 80% of the chapter. It's the worst type of filler because the people disappear after each... more>> scenario so there is absolutely no value to their comedic conversations. <<less

This story makes me laugh so hard!!! The interaction between the shou and the gong.... LMAO.

Basically, the super irritating first game that our MC was forced into threw him many curveballs, and by the end, he is thoroughly annoyed with its designer (who is our ML). Afterwards, once he gets his rewards, and his achievements has been broadcasted worldwide in the game world, the ML contacts him (presumably to offer congrats on clearing this impossible game). Our MC is the kind that doesn't like to talk much, so he responds... more>> all nice and polite to the ML but secretly his opinion of this 'insane game designer with super bad tastes' is dropping lower and lower.... and ML happens to have a skill which lets him read the favourability index of people's opinions towards him, so he just sees his darling (our MC) drop way into the negative-hundreds and is left in amused dismay. Hahaha it's really hilarious, this novel is a must read! <<less

One regret...

why isn't this longer?!!!! (۶ꈨຶꎁꈨຶ) ۶ʸᵉᵃʰᵎ

I love this author and I love this MC. He is a very capable, intelligent, and humorous, whose only "golden finger" is that he's extremely extremely lucky in getting the top drops/all randomized events. The story is set up like [Quick Transmigration] stories where the MC travels multiple worlds, however, there's actually real world-building!!! *gasp*

Yes, instead of some kind of vague system message with random assigned tasks, the MC actually enters a very detailed Central station where many "players" gather and interact, and... more>> instead of info-dumping, we learn little by little what kind of new world he has discovered.

Overall, the story is a romance (or *cough*multi-romances*cough*?) with many game-like elements and a survival element in the earlier stages. The majority of the plots revolve very strongly around the MC succeeding in becoming the top Prince Charming and wooing the characters successfully. There are plenty of comedic moments, balanced by a healthy dose of angst (romance, after all, must have some drama!), which make for riveting reads.

Spoiler

Seriously, this story could have 400 more chapters and I WOULD BE SO HAPPY. Honestly I thought all these 3oo chapters were just to set up the setting for further stories. I really wanted to see our MC fix other worlds!!! AHhhh so sad. Also the god team shenanigans were so good. I would have loved to see MC join the god team and have fun with them! *crossing fingers for sequel*

[collapse]

This is also one of the few very romance-focused stories in which the ML does not steal the show the moment he shows up! The MC works hard to complete the system tasks and continues to do so relying primarily on his own capabilities, and the ML merely helps out occasion. Instead of getting hand-fed all the answers, the MC can figure things out for himself and the ML respects that. \(@ ̄∇ ̄@)/ Hooray!

Spoiler

Unfortunately, due to the heavy romance plots, the MC and ML are pretty much the only main characters. You hardly get to see the friends/helpers that the MC met in earlier worlds ever again. At most, they have one-liner cameos at certain moments, but even those are few and far between.

I really thought the author was setting this up for a very long story where the MC would go to multiple worlds and meet many more people.... *sadface*

[collapse]

I highly recommend [The Earth is Online] and [Doomsday Wonderland] if you're into this type of setting without being as romance-obsessed. <<less

This is absolutely hilarious omg. Our MC is perpetually internalling dying inside and his head is just filled with. “WHY. WHAT THE F*CK. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING” but also eventually he just grows numb to all the strange things occurring. The first arc was absolutely hilarious and has left such a trauma on him. I guess it’s a good thing, haha. Seems to have prepped him well, mentally. ML is also a riot. Delusional and working hard to appease his dear wife but ultimately failing and only increasing disfavour towards... more>> himself. I’m looking forward to reading more! <<less

Current rating: 2/5 (partway through third arc).

I just want to know, does the story style remain consistent with the beginning, or does it dramatically improve?

I think a lot of people loved this style from the start, (which is fine, different tastes) but I'm seriously struggling, and don't want to persist if it stays the same.

I can see strengths in this story: The more creative take on the world-hopping system, the more concrete and logical structure for earning rewards from each world, the more creative way to... more>> include the ML in each world, the more original and somewhat sadistic spin on each of the cliched worlds and the genuinely game-like aspects such as save points.

However, I'm finding the actual stories really boring and irritating. I don't care AT ALL about any of the capture targets, all their interactions feel tedious - like having to click through the same NPC spiel in a video game each time before you can get to the action. I want the MC to have various interesting challenges, not just love-challenges with uninteresting and two-dimensional targets. (And then he needs to use a save point, which should be a strength if the story, but it just drags the arcs out tediously...)

And the ML. MEH. Of course, it's different the way the MC dislikes him from the start, but there's good reason, you know - he's irritating. Frankly, I don't care at all about the MC falling in love with him, I'd rather he just clocks all the worlds and becomes awesome. That's feel more interesting. And I'm tired of an OP ML falling immediately in love with the MC as well. It'd be more interesting if they both disliked each other and he was actively hindering him.

(Oh, and I almost forgot the super-irritating-and-not-funny pet companion. I thought I was free of that stuff since there's no annoying system personification.)

The point is, I can't wait for each arc to be over. I've been trying to persist, because there are no bad reviews, but I'm wondering if it's just a matter of whether or not you enjoy the ML and the capture targets from the start. Since I don't, I'm beginning to think they'll never become interesting to me.

Well, I'm not trying to put anyone off with this review/whine. I think if you try it out and find yourself enjoying it early on, you'll probably really enjoy the rest.

Edit: I couldn't persist with this story, but, seeing more reviews have been written, I think my final point is right: If you really enjoy the first arc of the story and want to read more of the same kind of thing, then you will probably enjoy the whole story. If you find yourself struggling with the early stages of the story, it's probably not worth persisting with. <<less

one of the few translated bl novels currently in which

  • MC is not silly
  • he is somewhat smart
  • he absolutely dislikes the Male lead
In other words, its unique compared to the current innocent shou falling in love with Male lead.

everyone is lacking in morals, shameless to the point of making me feel shame in their stead.

the interaction between in MC and the ML (s) is hilarious

and not being harem is a plus.

I tried to like this it gave me "Earth Is Online" vibes at first which was fun to read from beginning to end but this story draaaaaaaagged. Quick transmigration with the same love triangle, then love square, then love 'soccer team' sized group OVER AND OVER again. The MC and ML's own backstories sound interesting but unfortunately more focus is put on the MC being a slag male. I can't anymore! I end here at ch.180 ✌

Not sure how I felt about this story. First the title was kind of misleading, I mean I expected a more gaming plot like The Earth is Online (which I f*ing loved ?), but it was basically role-playing. The basic premise of the story is

... more>>
Spoiler

The "players" are actually beta testers, testing out newly created worlds before these quasi-worlds are released to be actual living worlds.

[collapse]

So realizing what this story is truly about was kind of a mind f*ck.?

But that ain't the reason I gave only 3 stars...

First, the good points: The MC was decent. He wasn't too Mary Sue to the core, which made him cool. He had OP luck most times, but his thinking wasn't so superior that he figured things out too quickly. He still struggled. BUT his struggle was mostly learning to be a playboy...

AND THIS IS WHERE I F*CKING GOT TIRED OF THIS STORY

Spoiler

Long story short, the ML split his soul to create worlds and the MC was, in a way, collecting the souls to save the ML. So in almost each world the MC goes to, he has to balance a harem of men who are essentially the same person. And that made the MC constantly have to pamper and manipulate each soul behind the other soul's back as if he was sleazy, cheating, bastard... WHICH NOT ONLY IRRITATED THE MC, BUT F*CKING ANNOYED ME AS WELL!!!

[collapse]

It wouldn't bother me so much if it only happened in one world but it was in MOST OF THESE D*MN WORLDS.

At least give me some smut to make it better. I would have added a star for the smut!! ?

But... no smut ? <<less

I think this is way too overrated.

Romance: 1/5

If you're gay then stop seducing straight males. This is just so wrong.

... more>> Setting: 1/5

There are too many transitions that it didn't make the story immersive. Also the transitions aren't smooth, the author just made the MC indifferent so that he doesn't have to do any explaining on why there aren't any side effects on the MC's mindset etc.

Plot: 2/5

It has huge potential, but MC's luck is just too ridiculous. Also the ML has too much impact in the central zone that it doesn't make sense. The writing and banter is also repetitive.

Characters: 1/5

MC - he is not an enjoyable character, I read up to the 2nd arc and I still don't give a sh*t about him.

ML- he is totally gaying the place up.

SCs - the repetitive "Little Sein" and " choose me" make me barf. This is way worse than the dumb bimbos in CNs.

Translation - 5/5

Rainbow turtle is besto. <<less

Basically world hoping story, with several differences

    1. The MC need to make multiple characters fall in love with him at the same time.
    2. The enemies that our MC must conquer in each world were the ML's soul. I kind of dislike world hopping story where the world's original MC were always painted as green tea bit*h and ended up with bad end. Here the biggest golden thigh the MC could hug was also his biggest enemy and headache. He only need to be worried on how to woo multiple people at the same time lol. So not only I don't have to read another white lotus MC + villain ml, there's more scene between MC & ML. Definitely a win win solution.
    3. The author is actually more creative in world system setting. Instead of the usual hopping into world where the MC need to beat the world protagonist/taking revenge, here we have world designing system. The trial that MC must take = fixing bug before the world materialized. After the task was completed, the world materialize as real world.
    4. MC's task was to create harem without getting killed. Literally. Considering no 2, the main male lead always wear green hat because of his soul fragments.
Overall it's a nice read. All being said, I love how the plot always moved with each world explored. Rather than the world being another game they have to clear, every world actually bring something new and strengthen the relationship between Jiang Xie and Xie Xi. For those who are worried that xie xi will always play the slag, there are several worlds that's not romance focused.

The premise of this is immensely interesting to me already; MC in a game that forces him to make choice after choice with no clue of the consequences. The protagonist's analysis and mild testing of his situation feels just right. He's smart, and characters surrounding him - while, as NPCs normally do, not appearing very organic/realistic - are just crazy enough to amp up the tension of this game and leave you wondering how on earth the protagonist is going to make it through. But you know he will, because... more>> again, he's smart, and it's overall quite captivating to read.

The vampire prince jumps out as the ML, but who knows yet!

On top of everything I trust this translator and their amazing consistency. Thank you for all your efforts! I'll be waiting for this while reading their other projects ? <<less

To be honest, I found the MC wonderful. I'm a fan of calm and smart protagonist who makes decisions decisively. The story concept is good, but I found the execution... lacking.

The story could have been exciting, but it wasn't at all. ML is supposed to be this godly game designer, yet the two games of his MC entered is just some f*cked up BL game where all the capture targets carry a part of ML's soul, and THEY'RE. ALL. BLAND. PRETTY. FACES. WITH. NARCISSISTIC. TENDENCIES.

To be honest, the game arc... more>> I only enjoyed was the one NOT MADE by ML. I don't get what people are saying about philosophical explorations, like there is nothing deep about the games ML makes. The characters just have yandere tendencies, that's not deep, that's neurotic.

The attraction is one-sided, as well. MC hates ML, and for good reason, yet for some reason, the story says their souls are compatible and ML thinks that it's only a matter of time. NOT.

There is no mystery or thrill in the games ML makes. All MC has to do is use his cheats and make coy remarks, even for me who plays these kinds of games, the capture targets are very easy because they all have easy motivations and little to almost no relationship with other people outside of the other capture targets, and even then they just wanna kill each other. The capture targets have no depth and the game solutions are pretty anticlimactic. The MC only has to die every time, and it's a win???

MC is too smart for ML's games, and it shows. MC isn't challenged, he just gets exhausted acting coy and pretending to be in love.

I really enjoyed the second game, however, the one not made by ML (which is far more complex and moving imo). If you have a chance, read that one and pretend that the ML doesn't exist.

ML's personality is just meh. Pretty guy who everyone thinks of as a genius, story shows no proof. Anyone with good EQ could win his games, no one just gets in his games because of soul compatibility.

They could have done without the romance. <<less

Those people who found this novel boring are blind... though it's wrong to judge them, but this novel is really good! Every plot is different, there's also some values that could be taken out of the novel, the thoughts are very comprehensive, not everyone is perfect but the growth of the characters are really just the best, the world built in this novel is very detailed as well as mysterious, the romance between the MC and ML are full of dog food, dependence, growth, trust, and MORE love...

This is actually... more>> one of the best novels I have ever read... PLS DO NOT SKIP THIS NOVEL, I DID IN THE PAST AND I REGRET NOT READING IT BEFORE BUT STILL I'VE READ IT SO IM STILL GOOD~ <<less

First if you are here reading the reviews to know whether to read or not, then yes you should read this (read my whole review if you need more convincing).

Second if you are here to know whether you should drop this or not, DON'T DO IT. I have advide and links to the majorly important arcs down below in the review if you don't like the multiple love triangles/hexagons. Also NO it's not the same trope of making the ML fall in love with him over and over again. AND... more>> its NOT falling in love at first sight, if you read the novel till the end, you know the real reason why the ML fell in love with the MC. If you don't like those arcs with cliches or love triangles, then go to the links of specific chapter below.

NOW the review: I actually dropped this novel after I read the first arc, but I picked it up again after a few months and I don't regret it one bit. It seems like one of the basic quick transmigration novels, but it is so much more than that. Its action, romance, dogblood drama, and angst, I almost cried at the ending. The MC is smart, but not overpowered, he grows based on experiences, struggles with his problems, and does not just KO everyone who moves against him. The world that the author described is so intricate and detailed and the arcs aren't 10 chapter long arcs, they are like 60-70 chapters long each so it doesn't feel so fast paced and abrupt (they aren't boring either), and it feels like reading multiple books in one.

The basic plot: There are not really any spoilers, I'm just putting the basics of the plot since the description the author gave wasn't that good and the novel isn't that simple and comedic.

Spoiler

Xie Xi gets pulled into the Central to clear worlds. The Central is the base for players who are taken from their original world once the is nothing tying themselves to the world. The worlds that the players clear are created by designers, and once completely cleared, they become their own separate world where life continues, but players can not go to the world anymore. Beginner players have to clear worlds constantly since the time they can stay in the Central is short: 2 days, or else they die, and the time increases the higher level the player is. Xie Xi clears worlds until he meets God X/Jiang Xi, and helps X retrieve his souls from the worlds that X designed. God X is the best designer in the Central, but to create S and SS grade worlds, he put part of his soul into each world, so Xie Xi has to retrieve his soul from the worlds.

[collapse]

Even if you find this novel slightly repetitive from the many arcs, I feel all the arcs need to be read since there are important clues in each arc that lets Xie Xi find the truth behind the Central and each quasi world.

But if you want to skip through the novel, then I recommend reading the dream world arc where:

Spoiler

God X and Xie Xi dream about meeting in Xie Xi's original world, and they experience the rest of their lives together

[collapse]

and then read the Horoscopes arcs. The Horoscopes Arcs don't have the dogblood love-hexagons, and are about:

Spoiler

Xie Xi going to save and repair each of Jiange Xi's souls.

[collapse]

Dream world arc: It starts at the end of the chapter at: "Dreams come true... "

arkmachinetranslations. worldpress. com/gl-index/gl-chapter-92 (copy and paste this)

Horoscope arc: There are 12 sections to this arc for the 12 horoscopes so if you don't like one world, then just skip to the next one. (Personally think Taurus is the best one.) So here is the link to the Horoscope arc.

So first things first, is it like Earth is Online? Not really. It looks and feels very similar at the beginning, with instances, props, and similar "quest/game" like prompts, but honestly it's more like a quick transmigration story with elements borrowed. Almost every instance is just an otome game setting where MC has to seduce them all. If you read it expecting it to be similar to EO, you'll be disappointed.

On it's own however, it's a pretty good read. I loved the way MC and ML interacted and the hilarity... more>> of how MC got to be so good at coaxing ML. I practically shrieked with joy in the zombie arc, that was truly my favorite and best part of the story. MC's fantastic luck vs ML's forever unlucky status was also a treat to read. It never failed to make me laugh when ML had a chance to see what it was like to be blessed by fortune's favor. I loved the Zombie group and the ML's own group of besties every time they appeared.

That said, I wavered between 4 or 5 stars. The story can be dragging, almost every instance was just MC romancing ML in a different scenario. I don't mind an otome/galge type instance, but every instance was the same mechanic, different setting. Even MC and ML's OPness can get tiring at times. There were also too many characters, items and plot points but the author didn't know how to use them all and thus just straight up abandoned them. There's also a lot of backstory I wish we could have read about like ML's group or past experiences.

Overall, it's not a EO clone, but it was a satisfying albeit slightly dragging quick transmigration gay romcom. MC and ML have a fantastic dynamic and enjoyable interactions. <<less

The story is about a lucky and talented gamer MC who is suddenly forced to play a 'game' where he has to complete the task/mission to pass. He has to continue to complete these tasks/games to level up and become stronger along with random skills/loots/and tons of gold. He's not overpowered (unless you count his luck, but even then, his luck is making him suffer so...) and the interactions between him and the ML are funny considering the ML is a big part of his suffering (but not on purpose).

The... more>> story is a breath of fresh air amidst all of the system bound world hopping stories, and is definitely worth a read. Also, the translation is pretty darn good~ but if you are anxious and want to read more, MTL is also very viable.

Edit: The story is finished... The story veered in a way I didn't expect, but it was still a good read. <<less

It got me interested since the premise reminded me of Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil or Earth is Online

But turns out, it’s nothing like them. Not even near. DON’T EVEN EXPECT IT.

I’m at the half of story and I don’t think I want to waste my time to finish 309 chapters for story like this.

... more>> It’s way too repetitive! Those arcs basically MC trying to coax ML’s multiple souls in different scenarios and ML could actually get jealous for those part of his own soul. No kidding.

And unlike QWFOD and EOL, the MC is mediocre. From the get go, the MC get golden finger: he get S-grade arc with numerous regards when completed, get very lucky with the missions, and even get ML’s affection since start for basically no interaction.

Just because ‘their soul is well match’, the ML suddenly become obsessed with MC, become stalker (watching his mission and join his mission), give many benefit to MC. It’s so ridiculous. <<less

the MC is smart and the ML is shameless and OP with some interesting personality quirks and their bickering is fun. I keep reading this because of their interactions more than the world hopping. this is a good story so far, though I find that the MC repeatedly having to handle/date so many people all at once in each world to be a little monotonous after the third time doing the same thing. It was funny the first time and interesting the second but I'm beginning to suspect that all... more>> his worlds will follow the same basic outline again; the story differs and his tasks differ but he still has to manage everyone all at once so the core doesn't change.

edit after finishing: it's a cheap way to have a harem without having to use the harem tag. After a while, it starts to feel more like a twisted Otome harem dating sim rather than a world hopping story and that's what brought the rating down for me. I really don't get people comparing it to FOD because that's all about revenge and this is all about dating the ML, and the ML, the ML, and the other side of the ML, oh and that other part of the ML all at once. <<less

It was 100% my cup of tea.

Reading some other reviewers, I can tell that it probably wasn't some people's cup of tea, and I find that I agree that it's just a matter of taste.

Personally, I go for different genres/tags depending on my mood, so there definitely were days I let this one sit while reading horror unlimited flow or historical rebirth instead, but when I needed some lighthearted rom com with a chance of feels, this was definitely my top choice no question.

Going into a novel with certain expectations... more>> and the novel not meeting them is probably what disappoints readers the most, so I believe in either going in open to anything, or clearly being informed of the focus of a story before diving in.

Focus of this story: ROMCOM, fake dog blood drama, comedy, role playing (as in, Jiang Xie makes up a loooot of settings for himself), spraying dog food, etc.

Jiang Xie himself summarizes it best in one of the earlier arcs. His worlds are complex and held the possibility of presenting a kaleidoscope of topics to the person clearing it (environmental issues, political maneuvering, interspecies diplomacy, blahblah) - but didn't, because Xie Xi, his love interest, was clearing it. Therefore the focus became romance. Some quick transmigration stories focus on the non romance part of the plot, and this is NOT one of those stories, although pretty interesting "more serious" subplots are constantly present in the periphery. Author chose the way the focus is distributed, as in, lack of this or that is not a failing on their part, just a choice of priority, so hope no one leaves a review dissing the lack of adventure/action/badassery of MC/"real plot." Pointing it out would suffice instead of dissing in a way that would overly discourage new readers :>

I find the world building was more than enough for me to enjoy and have my mind blown a teensy bit at times, though I understand why some would want a little more explanation, since it's a pretty intriguing setting.

* (IMPORTANT: not real harem, Jiang Xie split his soul into parts cuz he has no sense of self preservation lol ;-;)

Personally loved it start to end. Each section has sort of a different feel, but all of them were compelling in their own way. I wouldn't say sections are necessarily in order, since there are early harem worlds and later harem worlds, and sections sometimes overlap (angst section x harem section). Harem section is funny, good for getting to know the multiple facets of Jiang Xie's wild, weird mind. Occasionally touching due to the backstories of each soul fragment and how whipped they are. Fluff section (worlds of more or less smooth romance) contains sugar, sugar, and more sugar. Really heartwarming with feels at just the right moments. Angst section (Jiang Xie's settings are self destructive bc his worlds are breaking down) is worse than chopping onions. I bawled, I shed those quiet kdrama tears, I felt the sad feels chill go down my spine. Xie Xi does his best to get him better though, so it's technically hurt/comfort. The comfort does come! And Xie Xi's internal monologue is still hilarious all the while, so angst is not prolonged or too heavy all at once.

Cute teasing dynamic between Xie Xi and Jiang Xie. I really liked the settings of each world because they had a twist of their own despite being admittedly common tropes. Jiang Xie seems like a typical overbearing ML, but really, truly isn't, because he personally respects Xie Xi's agency, he just flirts real hard. The one assigning difficult worlds to Xie Xi is the system, because it sensed his compatibility to them, and the weird tasks stem from Jiang Xie's subconscious, not his free will. He would definitely give Xie Xi easier tasks if he could. You could say there's a power imbalance there, but it goes both ways technically, and Jiang Xie never knowingly uses his OP status inappropriately to take advantage of Xie Xi.

Anyways, up there on my favorites list. <<less
