Heroic Death System


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

“I curse you to never die in peace!”

Thus, Shang Ke started a never-ending (forced) cycle of constantly throwing away his miserable life.

He would always show himself as a martyr while letting others cry over his death.

It was because of a woman’s curse that Shang Ke was hit by a car and turned into a human vegetable. This led to him becoming bound by an unlucky system in which he was cursed to die. The most unfortunate part was that he never cheated on anyone’s feelings. The reason for why he was cursed by a woman was because of a guy named Qi Chen. Qi Chen was a ladies man, and he would always use Shang Ke as an excuse to break up with any woman that he was with. As a result, Shang Ke was always blamed for the breakups. Since then, the main character could only be forced to cross into different worlds. He would thus experience for himself, the hero’s “thrill”.

Be prepared for all the onion ninjas, as they'll ambush you when you least expect it. The MC has to die heroically in every world, and he'll be able to stay in a world if he survives three near-death experiences there. It's always very sad for the ML as he keeps on losing the MC. I can't help crying in every world. Poor ML : (

I go into each one of these novels hoping for actual decent writing and structure, but I guess the yaoi writing community is not past writing fanfic level stuff yet.

Now before I get DMed by a bunch of ppl, there are some BL novels with decent plot. Its just that once you realize the relationship and personalities of the ML and MC are the exact same as every other BL novel, its kinda hard to enjoy it.

Having read pretty much every BL/shonen ai on this site, I have to say... more>> this type of novel is more like porn than an actual novel.

This is the type of novel you pick up when you've had a long day and you just want instant gratification.

The premise is so overused that cliche is an understatement. Reincarnate with system continuously while the same ML slowly becomes more aware and possessive, etc.

I really wish someone would write a novel where the MC meets a different type of man in each world and learns something new about himself and what he wants to be or becomes more accepting of his sexuality in each new world. But I guess its too much to expect character development other than -> ML increasingly possessive, MC -> increasingly in arbitrary love with ML in a BL.

If you want some quick instant gratification, this is 3.5 - 4/5

Otherwise, if you're looking for actual story, character development, a decent plot, this is a solid 1 - 1.5/ 5

Edit: Read to ch 80 or so, novel gets more garbage as it goes. Or if you're reading it to satisfy your masochist cravings, it gets better I guess.

Plot armor becomes more apparent as bad things start happening to MC for the dumbest of reasons. Everything feels even more forced than before. A few new fetishes are introduced: Bestiality, incest, ABO, etc

At last! At last someone finally picked up this novel! To those who like Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil, this novel shares a similar premise.

MC transmigrates to many different worlds (ie. ABO, fantasy, zombieland, sci-fi, etc.) but not always as a human, heh. And as stated, he has the duty to die heroically, hence the tragedy tag. So be prepared for lots of drama and misunderstandings.

The ML is in the same mould as ML from QWFD, super possessive. In fact, you kinda pity him as he keeps losing... more>> MC time and again, which doesn't do great things to his mental well-being.

I'd been hoping it would be picked up, and I'm grateful a high quality translator did, thank you! <<less

DEM ONION NINJAS!!! I don't know how many times I cried while reading this story. This novel has EVERYTHING! Fluffy, heartwarming, heartbreaking, etc. So so so good! I enjoyed reading the arcs very much. Like the title suggests, this is about the MC dying heroically. And yes, he did it flawlessly. You'll feel sad for the ML. *sigh* I shed a bucket of tears everytime I finish the arcs because the way the MC died was just...

I really like the character development of the MC. He was just a simple guy trapped by the system and then he grew up to an awesome - omnipotent - character. Oh and, he was straight at first but then he became a freaking seductress. LOL


I liked the ending. It had a proper closure. This story is just so beautiful. <<less

I DONT BELIEVE IT!!! SOMEONE FINALLY TRANSLETED THIS!!!! This novel is very good. If u love QWFOD, this novel will greatly satisfied your taste!!!

Every world is damn suck! I pitied the ML very much.... MC will ALWAYS died in this novel, so it will be particularly tear-jerking. BUT DONT WORRY!!! The author is not that abused to his own character. MC WILL GET BACK TO THE BAD END STORY AND MAKE IT HAPPY END, soo your fav arc wont get end bad. BUT IT WILL GET HAPPY END IN LATER CHAPPIE SO BE PATIENT AND KEEP READING.

I very much like the first arch and for me this is the most tear-jerking event. And I love the dolpin arch, if I am not forget, its in 9th arch. This story is soo damn excited. Ohhh and dont forget the 2nd and 3rd arch. 2nd arch is very very much make me want to slap the MC. and in the 3rd arch I am very very much feel heart pain for ML caused his beloved brother (MC) is blown up in front of him. YESS. BLOWN UP!!!

That is. Hope u can read it cause this is a great story. I am very much recommend this, and assure u this is not fall back with QWFOD. ^_^

I, personally, love angst with heavy fluff and HE, and this story gives me plenty of that, BUT, I emphasis once again, with HE!

There is a redo for each time he dies tragically and MC falls in love with ML with each passing arc, which I totally love.

I really recommend this, even to straight readers since the s*x is not explicit (kinda sad 😞 ‘bout that #FujishiHere) and is pretty blurry, and if you really can’t bear,... more>> you can just copy paste it and replace the ‘he’ pronouns with ‘she’, which will make it more confusing but works. <<less

Warning for all with weak heart and sensitive soul (like me, but maybe I'm an M) : this stories revolves around a guy who's trapped with the system and have to play the role of cannon fodder who's have to die, every ark (Its not spoiler since its already stated on the very first chapter).

Ark1 make me cry yet laughed a lot, but ark2 is the most heartbreaking one I cried like a f*ckin' baby.


For Snowy-sama. I gave my most sincere gratitude for translating this series and for making me squeal with joy whenever I saw the update and cry like a little s*it at the end of the ark, cutting my heart until its bleed. So, thank you. :) <<less

Amazing!! Very similar premise as Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil. MC is reincarnates into many different worlds but is forced to die heroically in each world. ML is the same in each word, and he is possessive of MC :) Novel Updates says only 2 chapters out but there are really 30 chapters out as of right now! There is humor and lots of fluffy moment, the translation is really good and clear. Go read this!!

I absolutely love the premise. So far the story is awesome.

Not really here to review but to let others know that Snowycodex has been repeatedly going down. SnowyTime pretty much said that they keep tryna fix the site, itll work for a couple hours, then go back to being down.

SnowyTime says thats for now we should just expect the site to be down for the rest of the month. They will keep tryna fix the problem.

Weve entered a dark time my brethren, we must remain brave for the coming weeks. <<less

As the tittle said, died heroically in every task world. Quite a few times to save ML which sometime make me think the ML is quite weak. One thing I felt a bit dissatisfied is how we cannot know what happen afterward in each world after MC died. I mean, in some world, did antagonist characters luckily go around after MC died or they got their retribution. Plus, what about the ML who very much in angsty everytime MC died. Edit- well, after a few more chapters ahead, dont worry,... more>>

u got to know what happen to each world after MC died, and without doubt, ML is so damn miserable without mc

The story is okay and makes you want to keep reading, the usual transmigation novel - except that the MC dies everytime and 30% of the story is describing the MC as a male god. It started out quite nicely but then the ML turned into your typical possessive dude that forces himself on the other. Why is this type of character so popular? It's pretty much Stockholm Syndrome.

This is freaking awesome. I did not expect it to be so good. Highly recommended.

This is the 2nd novel I'm reading translated by snowy codex. They do an amazing job at translating.

FYI, the translators don't post the chaps here on novel updates even if they have already translated the chap, cuz its still unedited. So you might think that there are only a small no. Of chaps, there are actually a lot more.

This is a lower quality version of "Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil". The MC is more annoying and the sub-stories are less interesting. The MC doesn't ever take the initiative, which often makes the ML very r*pey. If you're looking for more after reading QWTFOTD, this is a might be an okay fit.

The story is composed of multiple sub-stories where the MC & ML reincarnate into multiple different universes. The main plot in this story is the MC is an unfortunate character that needs to die a "heroic... more>> death", which typically is just to complete the mission set out by the system. The unique flavor of this novel is each sub-story is told twice, once with a Bad Ending (first run) and once with a Happy Ending (revisit).

While the novel overall is labeled "Happy Ending (HE) ", I would categorize it as ambiguous.

I disliked the ending immensely. I would have strongly preferred the childhood friend mentioned in the intro text to be the ML. Also, his "heroic death" in the IRL world felt unnecessary. The last chapter (275) was ambiguous and confusing.


Overall, would not recommend unless you are a superfan of QWTFOTD. <<less

I loved this story until the ending...

The MC and ML are so great for each other, and the arcs were interesting. Everything was great until the end came... and it was kind of open-ended, which I'm not a big fan of... it sort of made the happiness from before go down the drain for me so... 4.5 if I could, but 4.0 instead. T_T

I love this story, it so interesting my second favorite after Quickly wear the face of the devil. The only thing that I did not like much was the end, as it was kind of rushed and something was missing. It would have been better if they could go back to they original life as immortals. But it was good.

The arc of Faith made my heart bled!!!! I hate those f*cking haters for bullying him!! But my favorite arc was when he was supposedly inlove with the younger sister of his lover. It was a bittersweet love story but in the end he died because of that f*cking little sister and that stupid Older brother of his! The line of the ML was really heartwrenching!

He said to his younger sister was like this:" You are my sister, I cannot hate you but I will never forgive you."

He (ML) also hate his lover's brother because he thought that her sister and his lover is the ones who killed him (MC), indirectly and he hated his sister for having the MC's undying love even sacrificing his little life.

I really hate the sister cuz she thinks that the MC's world revolves around her.

I love this novel! It is super fun to read and it is not as sad as you would expect from a main character who dies all the time in several different tragic ways (: in fact almost all of the novels being translated at SnowyCodex. Com are a really good read, unfortunately there is not enough chapters for most of the books) : only about 5 to 50 chapters :/ but there will be more later!!!! (Hopefully) also if you are wondering about the translating quality this book is... more>> really well done and has almost no mistakes (: <<less

This was good. Similar to QWFOD (also with a very possessive/overbearing ML) but there are arcs worth rereading again and again. Good writing and pretty original worlds for the MC to pass his time heroically.

Other people have given great reviews on what makes this story good, so I'll be the downer here and talk about the problems, SPOILERS AHEAD!

I would rate this QT book a 5/5 if not for some of the strange turns the story takes later.

... more>>

The ML's soul does a weird thing and the mole on his hand pretty much becomes a sentient character by itself... This is used in several major plot points to confuse the MC. In the beginning, it was intriguing/mysterious and some parts were touching/tragic, but overall that plot twist got more and more convoluted until it didn't add anything to the overall storyline.

It was like the author ran out of ideas on how to resolve the main conflict (vs. The Villain, who hasn't yet appeared in the translated parts). But seriously, the mole. #dead



Also the origin love story for the MC/ML were only seen in flashbacks. I would have liked to see more details about the cultivation world and how they fell in love/how the entire QT started basically, but the author pretty much glosses over all those parts and they never go back to that world.


And finally...


I really enjoyed the long story when the MC returned to the modern world/regular life he was leading before the system and how he realized that being gay was a big problem in RL China. He also treated the status gap between him and the ML pretty realistically (there was a big contrast on how the MC calculated risks regarding their relationship) kind of like if a gamer suddenly went back to "real life". However, I was disappointed that the ending was pretty abrupt and he died pretty much ASAP again, and that was the final world so yeah... the author just states that everything is great after that without actually showing it =|.

It felt like the author got tired of writing near the end and just tied everything off.


Overall most of the worlds are really worth reading. Translation is top-notch! Much thanks to Snowy & others for their hard work! <<less

I freaking love this story. I just finished MTLing it and kind of sad that it ended and no way of having a part 2 or something. And because it's MTL, there are parts that I couldn't really understand so it causes confusion but man, this is good!

I love the first arc, god, feels so sorry for Ravel. My favorite arc would be the Ghost Assistant where ML is kind of suffering from mild autism and our MC is just so caring and motherhenning ML. This story is good... more>> because it has MPreg and the children are so freaking cute! You would think that after having so many talents from many reincarnations, our MC would be so OP (he kinda is) but everything flows smoothly. MC is badass, so is ML. God, I can't have enough of this story!

I seriously recommend it to everyone. The ending kind of sucks for me because I want more but it's open ending so everyone can imagine their own endings (I'm continuing the story in my own mind haha) so it's good. <<less

It stands out in usual quick trnsmigration genre.I usually don't like the conceppt of leving behind body double after lead leaves the arc, I mean if you can find something to replace MC so easily for lifetime why do you need real MC in first place. So for me I want them to die in each arc tragically. hehe thats what this novel is about....

but still the arcs are different and interesting their order helps character growth of Mc

... more>>

arc 1 his willpower and patience MC doesn't need to do anything just endure

arc 2 fairly easy one his decision making plays

arc 3 I loved this one For the villian to die like a hero

arc 4 This is when MC and ML feelings acually develop a threshold

arc 5 I loved this one too the mission is to convert ML devil into god cultivation

they have sx ohh dual cultivation for first time

arc 6 the futuristic one alpha beta and omegas

its takes on a interesting point of view on this type on genre. It will make your eyes sweat more than once. The translator is magnificent and the author makes the story very interesting playing with the aspects inside of the arc.

It can be more on the dark side at times because of physiological issues that come up because of seeing someone you live die over and over again but it’s reasonable. When the main couple have their fluff fluff moments it’s all too adorable. The MC is related and... more>> isn’t unrealistic in his actions. There are a lot of funny parts in the story. Overall I would recommend you to read.... maybe with a box of Kleenex by your side. No maybe 2 of them. <<less
