How to Feed an Abyss!

【if you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares back at you】

The abyss, the most feared thing by the human race today. The animals infected by the abyss mutate into monsters, and humans are reduced to walking corpses.

Lu Tinghan is an abyss watcher. He has been guarding the world’s most terrifying abyss for ten years.

This abyss is not only scary, but also strange.

Throw the garbage down, after a few days, the garbage will be buried safely next to the abyss – like someone took a shovel and tossed it all night to bury them.

Throw hazardous waste down, after a few days, the waste will be thrown back with unbridled fury.

Lu Tinghan: ?

Ten years later, he left the post and became the youngest general in the Alliance.

The next day, the abyss was also gone.

——The whole thing disappeared and turned into flat land.

The whole world was shocked.

Until one day, there was a knock on Lu Tinghan’s door.

A boy with little devil horns stood outside the door, with delicate features and bright eyes. Obviously, he was scared to death, but he still plucked up the courage to say: “Hello, I, I am Abyss, can you continue to stare at me? QAQ”

He added: “I have helped you bury the garbage every day, oh!”

During their long time together, Lu Tinghan learned two things:

1. Staring at your abyss every day, the abyss will be happy

2. When the abyss is happy, it will purr toward you

A really good story I couldn’t stop reading.

The summary is a little misleading as the story is not as light-hearted as it seems. The premise of it is war so it was a bit unexpected when I first started reading as I expected fluff right from the start. But after the initial confusion, the rest of the story was pure gold.

The interaction between the all the characters is what brings the whole story to life, seeing how the MC navigates and tries to understand humanity after meeting more people.

There is... more>> a good mix between hope and despair, life and death, light-heartedness and seriousness, fluffy cute moments and heart-wrenching moments.

Definitely would recommend 10/10 <<less

This story is a very beautifull, heavy and light at the same time, one. 🎆 A lot of people say it's dark and heavy, similar to The Little Mushroom, yes in a sense it is, but in TLM you feel broken and cruhed again and again, you never gain hope, you cry all the way and in the last moments is the only moment you cry tears of relief and new hope since you were broken so much you cannot have other feeling than these.

Here you may feel a bit hopeless... more>> at times but you will be save each and every time you may fear, since the story will heal you with it's little moments of hope. It tells you "all will be alright in the end" from the start to end.

So I agree it's similar but nor really.

As for the story give it a read if you like to see pure love, so pure that no obstacles can even appear in front of it because if even the throught surfaces it will be turned into love the moment it sees the light of day. 🌠 It's a story you will flash throught in a day or two, very easily read and great news! For these like me who cannot wait for translation, the MTL is absolutelly readable ✨️

And a bit about the characters, first talk about tge side ch. They are very good here, only good people, showing the little abyss so much beauty in the world. And there are also funny moments.

As for the MC, no other word can descibe him better than a little snowdrop 🤍, sometimes a bit silly, but you have to understand, he is an abyss, what you see and view normal is completely different for him.

The ML? I really love him, the one word to describe him? Reassurance, I feel so reassured every time he is on the scene, he is the hope of humabity and the home of abyss. Maybe he is too cliche but for me his combo and this MC are the best ever combo.

And lastly the monsters, why I also evalueate them? Because to me they were falling start on the sky, you see so many but when you think about it they are always alone, and doomed to fall without finding home. But thankfully here, the monster found the light to guide them.

Now to say, the story is similar to TLM but completely different too, you will love every character here, it will make you feel relaxed and hopefull, you can read it at lightning speed, finishing even not knowing it's the end already. Very good to read if you are not looking for all the shitty dog blood drama.

I really reccommend it, you won't regret! 🕳👨‍✈️ <<less

This novel is on the extreme part of gruesome, pull-no-punches spectrum.

The author doesn't coddle you or spare you any imagination on the gore part, you're expected to stomach the descriptive situation and carry on. I'm also amazed that the author was able to paint a realistic humanity experiencing a devastating catastophe, their actions were believable and the difficult but necessary decision-making was treated with the momentum it deserved.

The relationship between the leads isn't that palpable so far, let's wait and see.

And this novel's cute. Very cute.

Reviews are right, this story is similar to Little Mushroom, but I'd say the characters are different and the feeling is much more hopeful. This story, at its core, is a story about humanity. Everyone, despite their differences, wants to work together, wants to let the human race succeed; everyone is connected by their humanity. People don't have the luxury to achieve their dreams or live comfortably, but each day is a good thing because you get to see your loved ones. Characters in this story have brief screen time, but they are complex and have their own motivations. It's very mature and nuanced, and I love how despite how the MC is generally ignorant of humanity, this doesn't mean he is s*upid or is obtuse for the sake of it. He tries earnestly to understand humanity, and to become someone that can help humanity. The ML is also so complex. Being a leader is expectedly a very lonely job, and though he is distant from the pubic, he believes in humanity and tries his best to save it because he wants to see ordinary days. His confession is also so breathtaking and genuine. I had a hard time believing that he was a fictional person.

"I told you to witness [humanity's] story. Now I am greedy. I want to be your story."

this quote made me sit back for a few moments.

this story is so intimate and genuine. It is very sad, but even if bad, terrible things happen, the moments that make up today and the hope of a future unites everyone.

There were several times when I had to pause and bookmark the chapter because the writing was so beautiful.

The plot is a bit similar to Shisi's Little Mushroom (non-humanoid protagonist and general main lead) and are both equally my favorite novel to date. Despite being a doomsday/ apocalypse plot, I like the fact that it read a bit like a slice of life novel would, following the protagonist as they witnessed humanity's struggle to survive. It was like I was watching Shi Yuan become human.

Additionally, I also like the fact... more>> that the relationship between these two is much sweeter from the get-go. Despite the obstacles, it really warmed my heart to read their interactions.

Despite the few low reviews due to its somber nature, I hope people will still read it. That way, it'll attract the attention of an official publishing house and go into print and hopefully, that day is when I can buy a physical copy c: <<less

This is the novel that got me to make an account here just so I could post a review, so you know it's good. I'm not even done reading it, but it caught me so off-guard that I couldn't wait until then to rave about it, PLUS the chapter I'm currently on at the time of writing this (57) is really important and although the end is a bit of a cliffhanger I can kind of guess what's going to happen next and AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH is about what I'm feeling right... more>> now.

I really went into this expecting a cute, fluffy novel with some hidden identity misunderstandings/comedy to spice it up a bit, but the author grabbed me by the throat and went "YOU THINK THAT'S MY FINAL FORM, b*tch?!" and proceeded to write a story about the philosophies of life, love, and war, what it means to be human, the struggles of and between being an individual and being part of a greater whole, and yes, with cuteness and fluff also included.

I love both main characters, Shi Yuan with his pure-heartedness and optimism (and not the annoying kind, but the 'I'm not even human so yeah I come off as simple, but also a guy's head could explode right in front of me and I wouldn't even blink' kind) and Lu Tinghan with his devotion and gentleness (and I honestly think that one of the most appealing parts of him is that Shi Yuan isn't his whole world, and he doesn't want to become Shi Yuan's whole world either. Yanderes and domineering CEOs all wish they had half the sense of security of this guy). These aren't just the same tropy characters that you could find in a hundred other novels; they really feel like their own people, and not just when they're around each other. The strongest point of this novel is definitely how lived in this world feels. Every random person you meet here has their own story, regardless of whether you get to know it or not, and the apocalyptic setting just adds an extra special weight to every encounter and action, since you know these characters don't have all the time in the world to double thinking or regret what they've done. They could very well be dead the next day, after all. The author certainly isn't afraid to make consequences real and lasting.

I might come back and give more of my thoughts after I've finished the novel, but for now I'll just say that I'm very much looking forward to what comes after this chapter. I wasn't even sure if it would happen or not because with Lu Tinghan's personality it isn't a definite matter and I trusted the author to not just spoon feed it to us because they thought readers would like it, unless it made sense within the story. So yeah, just read the novel, dammit! <<less

Looks like it has potential. I'm so excited about it. But the problem is I cannot mtl it.

So the story starts with MC already traveling towards the city to find ml. There are few comedic undertone. Like MC being named abyss no. 0 and then whispers away like "so I'm 0."

You can give it a try.

Happy reading

It's fantastic. The summary is undoubtedly deceptive because the story is not what I expected. Nonetheless, despite everything, I adore this. This type of story appeals to me. However, I now regret having read it while it was still in on going. I don't want to mtl such a precious story, so I'll bear all the pain and die quietly.

Contrary to the summary, the theme of the story is actually sad because there's a war going on

But! The happenings between MC and ML aren't really sad, just what's happening around them (like some friends dying, comrades dying etc)

So if you keep in mind that they're in a war and it's normal that tragedies happens, you're all good.

What makes me like this story is how — a lot of times, the situation is very serious but the author will find a way to put some jokes here and there... more>> between the characters so it's funny. I like it a lot and I found myself laughing a lot.

The MC found the ML within the first 5 chapters I think but it was a long long long time later before he admitted who he is.

You might think that —- isn't ML too unguarded when he kept MC by his side right there and then when he didn't know him??! Me too! I felt that it was unreasonable and thought it was MC's protagonist's halo that made ML accept him right away

But no! It's actually explained later why (tho the explanation is only glimpse)

MC's suspicious for everybody because he suddenly came out of nowhere (although his tests show that he isn't infected or anything) and that's exactly why ML kept him by his side, because he has good instincts and if anything happens, he can deal with it.

Plus, ML saw that MC has the necklace of his previous commander so he must have thought that MC isn't bad if the commander actually gave his necklace to MC

Another point is, ML said that he was supposed to let MC go off on his own after he git a job but ML said he made excuses for himself (like MC won't be able to eat delicious foods anymore if he's alone cause his salary is only 5 yuan, like the theater is close to ML's home anyway) stuff like that and I feel like ML was lonely too after all these years of being alone. He might not say or know it but he feels at home with MC

Another point is he really feels nostalgic seeing MC which will be explained later on why


One of the ongoing jokes in the novel that has made me laugh numerous times is —- MC's name is Abyss Number 0. He actually blurted out to one of his friends that he is '0'.

His friend was shocked because he thought MC was admitting that he is a bottom 😂 and there was MC's misunderstanding about what a 1 is. He thought 1 means powerful person so he always tells people that ML is a 1 or that he already has a 1 🤣

MC's innocence plus his little knowledge of the human world is what makes him so lovable and funny.

This is worth reading! Although it is quite long and I agree with the other review that said that there's a lot of unnecessary fillers. Like it took 60+ chaps before MC confessed who he is.

But regardless of that, it's a good novel, the MC is so lovable and ML does feel like every other ML in the beginning but as the story goes on, he fleshes out. You'll see his character more and I love how he goes from a kind, polite ML to a still polite but always teases and jokes around with MC kind of ML

One interaction I love is when MC

was telling his friend that when he dies, he will make his gravestone into an advertisement spot. He'll charge 300 yuan.

His friend was shocked and asked what ML thought when he told him

MC said that ML felt that it was too expensive, ML said he'll only charge 200 yuan when he buries MC 😂

The plot looks quite cute, but still a bit dark. The MC is adorable and very mature and immature, very introspective.

I started reading the translation here, by tags and genres. Then went to mtl. The translation is chic, it is considered easy on mtl. Just a big BUT! This is not a comedy! There's nothing funny, it's a tragedy! This is a heavy work with serious philosophical overtones. If you're looking for a strong MC, this is it, if you're looking for a happy ending, this is the other way. To read this, you must be ready to plunge into a terrible and gloomy atmosphere, compress all your nerves into... more>> a bundle and not expect anything good. It is not here, and as I understand it will not be. If the author considers this a comedy with a good ending, I'm scared for the humor and the author's position in life. <<less

I feel like I'm reading with no end in sight because it is still ongoing, and that drains my will to read.

However, the story is great. The character interactions are filled with ups and downs, people have life outside of their interactions with the MC.

The pacing of the story is relatively quick too.

... more>> MC and ML have trust in each other and have mostly sweet interactions. The author isn't afraid of ending characters even after giving them a sad backstop that makes me attached.

it's a great story, but I don't know when it's going to end, so I'm going to take a break from reading until I remember this again.

p.s translator is very good at their job \ (^o^) /, but if you're impatient like me, you can mtl it, it's very understandable <<less

Love this so much. There’s a lot more substance to the story than what is portrayed by the synopsis.

The MC is naive but in a lovable way, not just because the author needed a dense or oblivious protagonist to drag out the romance.

I cried so much! The story has a somewhat predictable plot but that just shows how good of a understanding of the genre the author has. Following the journey of Shi Yuan discovering humanity, he goes to find his human and meets so many people along the way. Lu Tinghan is a general and used to be an abyss watcher. At the beginning he seems like a typical ice cold ML but slowly he reveals his familial history and hidden feelings.

It's a light simple story. Not sure why so many were entranced by the descriptions, they were all basic.

The summary is misleading as well. Suffix it to say it was not how the story went. Him being the abyss was secret for a long time and he certainly did no knocking.

Nor did he leave to find Lu the next day. He waited for a long time.

Really that summary was all wrong.

I agree w the others that the summary is misleading. In the summary, the tone of the story is light hearted and kinda brain less but u got much more than just that. The story starts w a death of MC's acquaintance?? Then MC meets new people n learn more about the human world while getting to know more about ML.


MC is the ruthless logical but also cutesy type. Truly an alien but not the type looking for blood bath. One of my fav moment is when MC decided that... more>> MC wants to help the human by killing other monster. But author said reality check👍 and MC ended up making an even worse monster for humankind.

The side charas. I just love em. They are fleshed out quite nicely. My fav side chara gotta be the crazy deserter edward and poor bby su liang


It's not clear y ML fell for MC. They just hit it off. But here's the catch, ML is a general w amazing monster radar so MC is sus for ML. But ML just lets MC be near him?? Loke bro brain cell just disappear.

Guess how long it took for MC to reveal himself?? 71 chaps. Some parts are too slow like in the acting part (skipped that) then the deep dive part (decided to abandon this book)

It's not bad but just kinda dragged out too long. Skme oarts are nice while some are just filler chaps. Will prob pick this up again in the future cus I wanna know about the ending <<less

The summary is a bit misleading, since it makes the story seem like a light read.

The setting of the story is a post apocalyptic world, where humans aren't the top of the food chain anymore and try to survive. To story is told without beautifying the setting, but also not seeming hopeless. It's a good mixture between desperation but also happiness of the characters. The story doesn't feel depressing.

... more>>

Although there are constant sacrifices, the story still feels hopeful.


The story is interesting until the end and all conflicts are understandable. I like how the MC is portrayed as innocent, but also sometimes cruel without being s*upid.

For example believing that humans can lay eggs, while also being able to shoot people without blinking.

Update 4: I finished it and actually I loved it in the end. Some moments were sad, some poignant, and some funny. The "comedy" portion of the story was mainly due to MC's dialogue and thoughts with others. The ending was a bit sad but the extras made up for it.

where as I understood it, the ML did die, MC slept until ML reincarnated and found MC again or maybe I missed something and the ML had his time turned back and was found as a baby with the black crystal in his hand??

I would reread it.

Update 3: Okay, it took to chapter 74 to see the lines from the summary used so I suppose the summary isn't completely inaccurate, just misleading. The backstory was a bit unexpected. I like how the world building is fleshed out. MTL is fairly easy to understand too which is nice. Most of the twists and turns weren't super shocking which is nice. Update 2: Read the translated parts to ch 39.2. We finally get more insight as to how MC's infection works. I was lowkey excited that MC was going to reveal himself to the ML but ofc it didn't happen. Now I'm worried it's going to be climatic tragic reveal 😩.

Update 1: So far I enjoy the writing - the story feels a bit introspective. It's not quite the romantic comedy I was expecting tho although MC does create some funny moments. I'm on the edge of my seat wondering when it'll be realized that MC is the abyss. The play that the MC is in feels like foreshadow tbh.

OG: Disappointingly the summary isn't an actual scene/occurrence in this story. The only really accurate portions would be that the MC is the abyss and wants the ML to keep his attention fully on the MC.
