This is actually a pretty decent one. I personally don't agree with people who say that the story goes downhill.

Many may not like the fact that arcs are LONG. Except for the first one, all the next worlds occupy enough text space. The worlds are built on cliche settings but the care for the story fills with enough detal to dive into it. It has enough of description and twists to be interesting. I sometimes don't really like when the story looks like a draft and all the content are... more>> shared in two to three sentences. The introduction story is really short, while MC listens to all the wronged souls who have been wrongly accused, but later since he needs to change it everything goes into a totally different direction. I ended up liking this MC, since he cares and despite being OP and such he still feels righteous in his actions and quite cool. I may not have cried, but his dedication is really touching. For a change the development between MC and ML is different from other stories. MC at first doesn't know that he changed the fate of sons of fate, but later what comes first is their feelings and not always intimacy, for once he realizes that despite him knowing it's his man he doesn't jump him and ML doesn't fall head over heels at first glance and they do pa-pa-pa next chapter. Which for people who prefer this kind of development will be nice.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to how it'll go next. <<less

It doesn't have one of those annoying chatty/whiny Systems. Plus points for that.

MC is super serious about his tasks... it's cute. He hasn't noticed that the ML is starting to like him more than the original love interest.

The translation for this novel is pretty good. (´▽`)

Avid readers of quick transmigration novels will find this story rather fresh.

From what I've read so far, the author has taken the familiar tropes of the genre and began experimenting with them. The three translated arcs all vary quite a bit in story structure and delivery, with the first being the most straightforward/familiar given the quick trans genre. The story follows Lu Heng, a talented new recruit in an afterlife office that specializes in resolving the regrets of strong souls to purify them and prepare them for the reincarnation cycle.... more>> It really does feel like he's part of a bureaucracy, but not really a cold/strict one, which is nice.

I'm a fan of the the MC. He's not quite as blatantly a Gary Stu as in other works, though make no mistake - he still is one. He doesn't suffer from the neuroses and hangups other system-bound MC's often do for the sake of drama or "humor". He's hard working, easy going, and once he's made a decision, he goes forth with quiet determination and passion; yet refreshingly, it's never played up by the author in long passages that extol his good and pure virtues. Such a well adjusted character can come off as a bit dull in a dramatic work, however, which I've seen criticisms for in other reviews. What it boils down to is that he isn't very dramatic, even though the situations he finds himself in are. He's like a steady boat that I find myself rooting for along his voyage across the turbulent waves.

It's worth noting that the arcs contain a number of side characters that are distinct and memorable, though they aren't necessarily crucial to the events of the story. It gives these worlds a more organic quality. The first arc's epilogue highlighted this, but it's more noticeable in the second arc onwards. This is quite rare in these types of novels which usually only develop the two leads as sympathetic characters. It's even rarer that these characters don't serve to directly fawn over the leads or act as foils.
Spoiler

Like f†ck if I remember what the antagonist's name was in the first arc even though I read it a few hours ago because he was so generic, but I still remember the name of the brother who showed up 3 times and contributed nothing to the storyline, and I still remember the personality tics of the random person who featured in the first epilogue.

[collapse]

It's also worth noting that the 'system' is not a major presence/character, which I find to be a major relief.

Thus far, neither the MC nor ML have found themselves in the same character archetypes and situations time and time again. Consequently, the relationship dynamic between the two leads has been different in each world. This makes it slightly harder to get a read on their core personalities and identifying habits compared to other world hopping stories. It's clear that they respect each other as equals, though. Their relationship is bittersweet, tinged with events that bring to mind works such as Heroic Death System. Their love isn't so much "We are the alpha couple that can topple kingdoms and are the object of envy by everyone else" but more "You mean the world to me, and it's really no one's business but ours." I'm also celebrating the fact that they're both manly men and there's no real focus given to who's a top/bottom or sore waists. (The faster we get rid of that trope the happier I'll be)

Potential readers might want to know that action sequences and "face slapping" schemes and scenes are often reduced to a footnote or two by the author. They exist, but it's not necessarily given focus. Instead, we are treated to extended redemption arcs and tragic love epics. I for one am not complaining. <<less

This story is a similar style and format to many of its Web Novel Counterparts.

It has a premise of watching one character jump from world to world, except rather than being run by a ‘system’ – the entity in charge of whichever human is assigned to go through numerous worlds with web novel premises – the main character works a ‘9 - 5’ job for a specific type of rebirth storyline.

This novel assumes that you’re already familiar with this type of story – what a system is and how it... more>> works, plus common tropes of the genres typical for web novels – because it speeds through a lot of exposition in the beginning. If you are familiar, its not hard to comprehend the idea of there being a bureaucratic system dedicate to a specific type of trope, someone who has grievances about they way they die.

Spoiler

It a world hopping story with a unique base.

[collapse]

It flies through a lot (finishing all the basic exposition, introduction to the first arc, and then drops you into the action by the end of the first chapter) in order to get to the stuff that most people would essentially read this kind of story for.

I would have enjoyed seeing a more unique way in which the main character could fill out these requests, but it’s not meant to dive deep into the meta of the genre, it’s meant to be a fun read. And it is so far.

Here’s a probably helpful note for the first chapter because it took me a bit before I understood what was happening? It’s a guess, so read at your discretion:

Spoiler

When the main character (Lu Heng) first wakes up in his client’s (Reiner Hart) world, the face he sees is not his client’s but his own made to look similar to his client. I’m assuming that Lu Heng was suppose to wake up in Reiner’s body it was suppose to look exactly like Reiner, and the fact that Lu Heng didn’t was a major issue — hence why both the main character and his system are worried and confused.

What sets this novel apart from the sea of similar novels is the ML and his relationship with the MC.

Male Lead is powerful in each world, but he is never overpowered. He does not have the power to help MC with his missions or change the fate of the world. In every world, he lives by the world's rules.

Even though his love for MC is burned into his soul, it does not mean that he wants to sleep MC as soon as he sees him. His process of falling in... more>> love is different every time, but so far every time felt very natural. For example, in one arc he had a crush at first sight, but was so straight and dense that he did not realize two men can be in love with each other until about the middle of the arc.

Their relationship is very natural, the 'overbearing gong chasing a somewhat unwilling shou' trope is thrown out of the window. Instead, MC often takes initiative to do the intimate stuff (which is barely present so far) and ML's pride doesn't suffer from having submissive titles like MC's 'Queen' or 'junior disciple'. He does not feel the need to be constantly dominant in a relationship and treats MC as his beloved equal, not as a 'cute little wife'.

For me, male lead can make or break a romance novel, no matter if it's BL or BG. Main protagonist is the person who is supposed to act the most in a story. However, a lot of authors ignore that, and let the male lead do all the protagonist-y acts, while having MC swooning and blushing on the side (unless they are too busy being tsun). This novel is like a breath of fresh air with a male lead who is a devoted love interest and not an omnipotent plot device. <<less

I like the writing style of the author. Its engaging and very easy to read. You dont tire of it easily too, She says the events beforehand and as you read you connect it bit by bit with how loosely she writes her sentences, giving you more room to imagine the plot.

Arc 1 is really good, I feel like im already satisfied with the events of it therefore I have a high bar for the next arc. Even if I have read lots of novels with systems or 2nd chances... more>> or transmigrations, this was one of those fics I hold dearly in my "best novels list", I could see myself rereading this novel for many years to come. In fact, just this week ive reread it all thrice.

Please do read this novel, its really lovely ^^ ill give it a 100%. <<less

typical of this world-hopping genre, this novel feature a few different settings and plunges its main character into these settings. What separates this novel from others within this genre however, is that the protagonist do this as a job, so there's at least an explanation on why there's a world hopping in the first place. The other thing is that the 'system' that usually a staple in this genre and doubles as a cheat for the protagonist take a back seat in this novel.

Of the eight arcs/setting/worlds presented in this... more>> book, some are more interesting than others. The authors actually putting some effort in building these worlds and except for the first one, the others are not just conventional setting like zombie apocalypse, but conventional setting with some twist (ex: zombies but with demon, cultivation but also an otome game).

The protagonist himself are bland but profesional (?). As world hopping is his job, he will typically follows the characterization of the body that he wears. The ML is the typical super-competent-and-possesive ML. The relationship between these two are while not exactly slow burn, it takes a few worlds to build, and the dynamic afterwards is quite good.

Overall, an okay read. 4/5 stars. <<less

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. This book sets the precedence for what a world-hopping MC with a system should he like.

Most times, there books with the same background just "cheat" with their overpowered systems or by going out-of-character (when they claim they are not).

I love this book because the background for the world-hopping is well thought out and not some random act of luck. The missions are set, the system doesn't give plotline-breaking advantages, the MC has to actually think his way out, while acting like his predecessor and at the same... more>> time, he must follow all the paths his predecessor took, mistakes and all, but change the ending.

Aiyo, even the faceslapping has to wait till the end, truly a professional world-hopper! <<less

Very good. The first arc made me bawl my eyes out--repeatedly.

The overarching setting is established early on, and the MC is fully aware of what his job entails and what his purpose is. He knows why he is going into these worlds, and he acts according to the role he is cast as. I really love having background established in these novels. The plots are interesting, and side-characters are also developed and given attention to. They all grow as the plot moves on. Great pacing. The writing is well-done and... more>> difficult to put down.

My only complaint thus far is that some of the action scenes are skimmed over. Although the intrigue and developments are good and exciting and I couldn't put this series down, it'd be nice to fill in some of the holes in the combat and action scenes.

It's like a mixture of Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil and Heroic Death System. Strongly recommended. <<less

The first chapter skips through thoughts like crazy. It's an incoherent info dump. You can basically skim through chapter one and get a feel for the the type of story it is. Either you'll be okay with the writing style enough to stay or you'll hate it and drop.

Now that I think about it the story is like the description. See how its perfectly normal then suddenly half way through it noticable becomes a garbaled mess of words and thoughts? The story is like that.

i almost didn't bother with this because the first story is ABO and I really don't like that genre. The rest of the stories, however, were good and I'm glad I stuck with it past that first story. The worlds were all interesting (some more than others) and always had something a little different from the normal quick wear genres, adding a twist to make it seem fresh. One or two were stuck in there just for fluffs sake but that's OK, not every story has to be all about... more>> heavy drama, tragedy and the base human condition. The fluff lets the readers brain take a break now and then and just enjoy the warm fuzzies. There were only about nine worlds but in most of them the story was fairly long in comparison to some other quick wear novels and each world was completed with a comprehensible story line and and plot arc that didn't just peter out at the end. <<less

I really like this. The MC is rational but still relatable and human, not too OP. The ML, has different personalities in each world and it's a different yet familiar dynamic whenever they interact. He's also not too OP. And is thankfully not one of those 'don't care about your consent, you belong to me' MLs that make me roll my eyes hard.

The system not interfering in the tasks and only there minimally is actually a refreshing take. Because as fun as some system-host slapstick bickering scenes are, it doesn't... more>> seem necessary in a novel like this. The brief glimpses into the underworld behind the scenes is interesting also.

There's the face slap I love but also not to the point where it's exaggerated and within reason. The progression of the relationship between MC and ML as they traverse worlds is also evenly paced and neither slow or rushed. Just right, imo.

This might be one of my favorite world hop novels to date. <<less

For once, an actually non-rapey love story between the ML and MC, and that alone (plus the very strong feelings between the two) is deserving of all the praise. Consent is life.

Long review and mashed up comment and guessing from me

This transmigration story is complex bcs some mix and match; MC is transmigrating bcs task from Underworld's Soul Purification Department (I'll abbreviated as USPD), it's doesn't sound like futuristic world, more like afterlife or heaven-hell theme. Also I'm in 3rd arc where, the apocalypse combined with some cultivation theme. Added with poetic wording of the author, it makes this novel more... complex.
For me this can be as complex as Game Loading. Let's see if the author will take the background... more>> story of USPD as intriguing as Game Loading or not. If not, that's okay too.

Arc 1 is lil bit confusing, vague, and more tragic when you imagining it on other view. Also get more complicated in my too imaginative mind..

Spoiler

XYT is actually has a feeling for Reiner (the client whose body taken by our MC, LH) but XYT is a bit late realizing his feeling, and disappointed with Reiner (ori). When XYT confess, original Reiner didnt get it in original plot, the one he confess is not Reiner but LH, stranger from another world. And Reiner never have a chance to confess too. 😭

[collapse]

Unrelated-but-related-to-series opinion:
Spoiler

I always think about the original owner in this kind of story. They never have a chance to be as happy as body-snatcher does. And the one around them too, if they have partner whose together for a long time, it's sad if the partner never knows that their partner already replaced, the one they love is someone else. Except some series, like DPUBFTB

[collapse]

At some point, I started to thinking, what's the point of dying as important people, if the one who makes it is not you, the real you? What did these clients of USPD get, when they didn't even feel the fame or anything of their sacrifice bcs they are already dead? Just their soul purified? So they have no grievances? It's automatically gone after USPD correcting their path? If it's like that, the plot is too shallow... ok I'm thinking too much (-_-)

The confusing arc 1 makes it seems disconnected to arc 2...

Spoiler

For me it's bcs ML (XYT) in Arc 1 specially belong to Reiner than LH, since there's already something between XYT-Reiner in original plot. it's different with ML (SK) in Arc 2 because there is no relationship between client (Zheng) with ML in the original plot, and it's clear that LH (who got thrown to 100 years ago) is the one whose SK together with, also SK is from LH world too. Except... XYT when LH goes in is someone from LH world too...

[collapse]

So, for me it's 4.5/5, will change when this novel complete. <<less

One thing I find really unique about this novel is that the MC is either very strong or just as strong as the ML. I've read the first 3 arcs and each time the MC is just as strong as the ML. I like like it like that. This novel doesn't stick to cliche plot and doesn't stick to the idea that the MC is weaker than the ML because the ML always has to be OP or something.

Very good translation.

Oh my kokoro!!! This novel is soooo good but it hurts sooo badly! 😣 I mean I know there'll be a HE in the end but I've only read 2 arcs and those two arcs have already made my heart bleed for the MC & ML. Especially, the second arc! 😭 (
Spoiler

Ch38 makes up for it though ;) since we get clues about the HE and ch 38 sort of seems like an epilogue for the whole novel.)

[collapse]

Well, after all that rant, let's come to the evaluation.

The plot is a bit cliché in the beginning but the plot development is stable and intricately done. The plot development can sometimes seem even better than FOD. The author did not develop the feelings of the 2 main characters haphazardly but in a slow, touching manner. I really can't wait for the next arcs. The translation is very good and doesn't have too many mistakes.

If I had to nitpick, I'd say that I want to see more of our ML's thoughts and not just glimpses. Maybe we can see that in the future. I feel tempted to MTL the novel and maybe I will. So wait for an edit in that case! ^_^

So far so good.

I have just finish the first Arc and now I'm in agony since I have to wait for a few chapters before reading the 2nd Arc.
From what I have read so far, the early part of the story is a bit out of touch.. I meant some of the contents are skipped and thus make me feel a bit lost. And there's an annoying character in it YES there is.

Still this is a good read even all the things I have complaint.
