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.

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

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

It may be too soon to give a proper review but I kinda like this kind of stories.

Spoiler

this is isn't really much of a spoiler since the tags already said it has omegaverse in it, though the first arc is OMEGAVERSE!!! the MC is beta btw, so it is kinda interesting how this arc will go... 😏

majority of my rating is due to this 😂

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

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.

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

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

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.

The story is sooooo great !!! Even though it's currently in the 2nd arc, the story have great potential in it.

The story goes as MC was assigned tasks by the task assistant (system) and there are scores being given every time he finished a task. The MC wants to complete his tasks with high scores (if not perfect) as he is a bit of a perfectionist since from before he died.

... more>>
Spoiler

The first arc is an ABO with the zerg setting (if you read FOD) and the MC is a beta. He is the childhood friend and adjutant of the world's ML (he is a superior) and the world's protagonist is a new member of their squad. Protagonist is an omega who conceal himself as a beta. Then stuff happen and ML is inlove with the MC and caused his overall score be changed from an A to 'pending'. Lol haha

[collapse]

Spoiler

Second arc is currently being translated, but the story goes as a demon king (mc) who wants to protect the demons and adopted a white demon rabbit (female lead/protag). The protag was caught by a cultivation sect and set a trap for MC but failed as he came prepared and suffers from an amnesia and was temporarily taken care of by a monk (ML)

[collapse]

The current arc is still being translated but from the last arc and the start of 2nd arc, I can really say that I highly recommend this one. This like a mixture of FOD and Heroic Death System. <<less

If you ask me to rate the first world, it will be 10/10.

But if we're looking at the entire novel, it's 6/10 at best.

Now, I can understand, this kind of novel is usually only good in the first arc, or the first several arcs, before going down the drain. Except for QWTFOD, I instead found the first arc of FoD pretty lacking and... boring, I also dislike the ML quite a lot in the first arc. But others are all good in their first arc.

Now, I can go all day... more>> ranting about how awesome the first arc is and how worth-it it was. I'm giving you a good spoiler.

Spoiler

The ML was actually in love with the MC even before the transmigration.

Yeah, B****es! The ML was f*cking in love with his childhood friend! And in the original story, he WAS in love. But along the time, he was slowly disappointed with the original owner's shift of personality to be more and more against their original owner-

WHICH IS not willingly, you must note. The original soul shifted his personality to be pro-government rather than the military is because he knew they're treading in the narrow cliff, and their squad is a special squad that is too famous for its own good. The original soul knew that if he didn't quickly maintain a balance, some people above would probably get rid of them, hence, he was being pro-gov to maintain that balance even in the face of his bestfriend's disappointment.

The original soul know his bestfriend was too much of a free soul and want him to stay that way, and instead sacrifice himself to be a strict, rule-abiding, cold robot. Which was a huge leapt of personality in ML's opinion, as the original soul was actually very playful, naughty, and fun, The ML even stated that all the mischievous 'fun' ideas of rebellion back in their academy days were all proposed by the original soul. Hence, probably why the ML fell for the original soul even way before the MC transmigrated over.

In the original story, the ML grew more and more disappointed to the original soul and their misunderstanding was not cleared. he instead came to fall in love with an omega while having a fall-out with his bestfriend, they were 'torn apart' by the original soul because Omega wasn't allowed in a military (unless they removed their gland). And the bestfriends split up in bad term, in a deadly fight against alien race, the bestfriend duo weren't together and the ML was too devastated over the loss of the Omega Supposed-Protagonist, before the S-P ran to help and with their love they managed to save the day, condemning the bestfriend at the end of the day, forcing him to die in vain.

In the fixed story with the MC, however, the MC conveyed the real reason why 'him' (meaning the original soul) did all those things and the ML was touched that his mischievous bestfriend being so restrained and rule-abiding for his sake. And they ended up to never had a fall-out, the ML stayed in love with the MC ('s skin, really). Communication is indeed the key. But still, their story was fated to end in tragedy.

AAAH!! If only the original Reiner spoke up and explained himself, my ship would probably set sail far away, without even the need of someone to transmigrate over! I'm adopting those two bestfriends! I'll make sure they'll get their own story which end happily without a transmigrator helping them through! I'll write something that has Hewitt (XiuYiTe) to reincarnate back to their childhood or something! My original Reiner couldn't be dead this way!

[collapse]

So yeah, it was very great. Though, the MC is a bit too bland. (Honestly, I stayed for the plot, the MC's character is decent and smart but just too... bland and in-the-line. If the plot is ugly, with the personality like MC, I would have dropped this.) So yeah.... The first arc is great.... The arcs after that, however.... <<less

A refreshing world hopping novel.

I was about to give it a 4 or 3 star considering it started weakly. The world building was mediocre and the flow of the story is rough. Sometimes it feels like I'm missing scenes.

However, after the second world start, as the chapter count grew, the story runs more smoothly and easier to read, so I give it 5 stars in light to the potential this novel holds.

The MC is lovable, he tries hard not to be OOC. He also asked his system in case he... more>> does something that will collapse the world, hilariously, the world doesn't collapse but he disrupt the thread of fate between the children of fate, lol.

The main lead so far are likeable as well. They are not too overpowered, not unreasonably dominant as well and for a change, isn't a yandere. It's a nicely balanced couple overall.

I enjoyed the story and can't wait to read more of their adventure. Shout out for the translator/ translation group for picking up this novel. <<less
