Thank you author, editor and translators for bringing us another cute story!

This is a short fluffy read that can be finished in a day. There is no angst, but the MC has a sad backstory that gets addressed and the ML is kind, understanding and patient with the MC. Everyone is also supportive in game and bows down to the MC's luck~

I feel like some people have been reading too much overbearing-MC novels that they believe self-awareness, forgiveness and kindness to be negative traits ==

Extra Rant:

Spoiler

And apparently some people also thinks that if your lover - whom you strongly suspect have a problem and you want to know more to be able to help them - opens up and tell you about their mental illness, you should have a hard time accepting it...

geez, what a wonderful world we live in ==

A really lighthearted and sweet story. Bai XiaoYu (MC) is a shut-in because of a trauma and decided to play a virtual game. The game somehow gifted him this kinda op adorable lucky cat.

The author somehow manages to depicted social anxiety quite well. BXY is really introverted and traumatized by the death of his parents. He has an extreme case of phobia of vehicles that makes him unable to get out of his home. ... more>>
Spoiler

This later becomes a major plot point when MC and ML gets together. ML tries to help MC overcome his trauma. Only, this part is too short (just one ride in the car and he's fine, really?) and too abrupt, considering this is a major driving force of MC's action, I expected something more.

[collapse]

The ML is the typical rich and powerful ML. He's first bemused by MC and his cat antics but then somehow gets attracted to MC. He's nothing memorable if you read this kinda story, really.

The rest of the cast is... a mixed bag. There's a secretary type best friend of ML, a fujoshi, and a rival of the ML. Some introduced at the start and then forgotten. Some are just not memorable enough to be remembered.

The game setting... is alright. It's not too detailed but this is not a story about leveling up in a game but a story of romance so thats fine.

The main attraction of the story is the lucky cat. It's very cute and foolish. At the end of the story the origin of the lucky cat will be told.
Spoiler

Lucky Cat x Main System ftw!

[collapse]

All in all, read this if you want to read a sweet and fluffy romance. 4/5 stars. <<less

I absolutely love this novel. Right now it is so up my alley it’s not even funny. The MC is not too OP to the point it’s unbearable, yet he still gets some special perks that satisfy my desires. I won’t lie, I’m a sucker for MCs who have rare sh*t or are acquaintances with high level players without even knowing it. I especially love if there is a drastic power imbalance in the relationships. I.e the MC is weak while his friends are strong and the only ones who... more>> really wonder over this are the baffled onlookers.

This novel doesn’t just tickle that itch for me, it full on scratches. And it doesn’t ruin it by making the MC suddenly OP.

The meeting of a few characters could be said to be too coincidental at times, and a few appearances and lucky saves might make you go ‘really’, but it’s a minior flaw that doesn’t really matter to me.

Some of the MCs decisions seemed a bit s*upid and unlogical to me at times as well - I would write them but I’m not sure how to do a spoiler tag - and only seemed to been done for the sake of the plot, but I was able to overlook that because every other part of this novel is great that I can forgive these minor things.

I’m only on chapter 21 right now so I am unsure how this will turn out, but hopefully it continues to be just as good! I’m really tempted to read the raws, but at the same time I want to enjoy this novel in its fullest and not in the butchered version of google translate.

Tbh I’m probably being more lenient with this novel than I would be with novels of the same genre because BL novels that focus primarily on the video game aspect with the romance as a secondary are hard to find. Even if it wasn’t BL though, I would still read this. <<less

This book is soooo good! The ML just figured out that what he's feeling for his friend is love and the MC is a cute little ball of fluff. He's just so pure and sweet and naive. His family died and he's still traumatized by it so he can't go outside his house at all and he just spends all day everyday gaming. It's really cute so far and I love it.

It’s very cute, but there are one too many frustrating things that appear (or constantly pop up) and isn’t really dealt with (or given a satisfying revenge).

Also, the MC, Bai XiaoYu is too soft of a persimmon.

Spoiler

Constantly getting bullied by various types of players, yet doing nothing really in return and just letting it slide. His Mary Sue White lotus act can be very annoying sometimes when you read.

[collapse]

There’s character development for him, but it’s just too small at the moment and we’re already almost done with the novel—a little more than 20 chapters left.

I would recommend this novel for others to read as it’s enjoyable. It’s well paced (so far) and there are many characters with great personalities. They make the novel flow much more easily and they’re very likable. <<less

This is an entertaining slice-of-life/adventure/comedy series that takes place in a futuristic world, especially within a virtual reality game. The protagonist and his cat are a hilarious and charming combination that are hard to forget. The two are so funny that other characters can't help but be drawn to them.

Each character having a distinctive personality. That said, I think there's only one named female character so far? She is a standard fujoshi. Where'd all the ladies go? Even men make female characters sometimes, right? Although some character depth has been... more>> revealed for some of the characters, most of them are relatively shallow so far. The author hasn't gone into as much depth with the MC as he or she could have either.

The feelings growing between the MC and ML seem to develop naturally and lack the terrifying possessiveness of many MLs in other series. This ML is actually a normal person! He's likeable and respectable! There are no signs of abuse whatsoever so far, unlike many other Chinese MLs. This series gets bonus points for being a Chinese series with a ML who is actually a likeable and decent person.

The sci-fi setting is interesting. As for the gaming setting, most readers here have probably come across it before. The VR gaming in this series is more of a setting standpoint rather than a genre. The action scenes are weak with minimal detail. The battle strategies and the MC's current stat distribution, items, and battle strategies are largely blank. If you're looking for an exciting gaming series like Reign of the Hunters, this is not it.

There is minimal imagery. Where's the imagery at?!

Overall, this is an enjoyable lighthearted series that mostly takes place in a gaming world. It's great for an easy, low-tension read, and I caught up on all the chapters before I knew it. However, there are many things the author could have done to improve it. For instance, enhancing the character depth and details, describing imagery, giving the characters defining features and their own motivations, explaining why women appear appear to be rare species or including more women, fleshing out the world as the MC explores it, and really going into more depth about the MC and his daily life, experiences, and feelings. It'd be wonderful if the action were done better or the gaming details were focused on in this series, too. <<less

Tbh MC too white lotus (he deserves to be surnamed Bai, if only his first name were Lian Hua too *barfs*), ML has way too much time for games considering he's supposed to be powerful in real life too. Also, I still feel it's inexplicable ML would entangle with MC so much. He's also SO dense, like I know he's socially ignorant but it's not like he's lived in a birdcage all his life, but only after high school.

Honestly speaking, yes love means you want to go with anyone through... more>> hell and high waters. Furthermore, you'll want to help your lover through anything. But it's really not such a light matter to take on the responsibility of helping someone through a debilitating mental illness, and idk I just feel ML too easily accepted everything about MC even though I don't even get how he likes him so much in the first place.

The romance is pretty slow but then it immediately amps up like crazy?? I still don't understand why ML likes MC so much. They agreed to move in together like a week after they started dating, when MC's not even sure of his feelings.

That said, the gameplay pieces were pretty entertaining. Also, like the other reviewers mention, I hate how weak and fragile the MC is always portrayed as. That's not to say anything against mental illnesses, but it's just the way the author writes MC is so cringey. Idk, he's the definition of a pure and delicate white lotus. "Silly boy", "silly billy", "little fool", "little kitty", "how can he be so cute?", ugh. He's the poster boy of quietly suffering from others' abuse, who needs to be protected and nurtured, with a Holy Father heart.

Anyway, I agree with everything TheLadyWhoLikesBoyLove said. <<less

This is Ok

The world building is Ok. It definitely has the feel of what the first VR `s probably will be like.

The MC is Ok. The author keeps his character consistent, and avoids turning him in to a battle hungry sociopath who is instantly a God at combat.

... more>> The story is Ok. The lucky theme is continued without being ridiculous. The characters are distinct enough with out devolving into tropes. Unfortunately this cannot be said for EVERY female character, they're all portray ed as perverts or uncontrollable b*tches. Ed

Summary: good writing (as long as there is no women involved) and a ok story. <<less

(My first time writing a review!)

I love this a lot! The story is very straightforward. MC is a very simple-minded guy, he's also not like super smart, Gary Sue, manipulative character, OP character, he's just very lucky. What I like the most about this is his relationship with ML, its very sweet and simple. I do feel like there are few plot points that are not resolved, or simply forgotten by the author, but it don't bother me too much.

If you're looking for a simple and straightforward plot,... more>> this is for you. <<less

I'm not the best at reviews, but here's my take at it!

It's a super sweet story~ The MC has some benefits from the beginning, but he isn't painfully overpowered. People don't expect him to be godly at his job and they patiently teach him, which is pretty realistic! The relationship isn't forced although it progresses pretty (?) quickly, not that I'm complaining lolol

Kinda slow and explanatory for now, but chapter 2 is the best!! The future looks so far away, but I would keep reading if I could get more like chapter 2. The fluff and cringe were so real, I had to hold in my laughter while reading this at work. :P Let's just say, you get your cute cat, and you'll want more cat.

This futuristic 23rd century the author built is a bit intriguing, too. If this plot goes in that dramatic direction, I predict that the virtual world will... more>> have something to do with his real life eventually. <<less

Hmm.. this novel isn't bad... but it isn't exceptionally good either. My original rating would be 3.5 but I rounded it up. The novel dumps lots of game info. For those who play/played Ragnarok Online, it'll be easier to understand since the basic setting has been taken from that game with a VR twist in it. The gaming part didn't seem too bad to me (I'mnot a gamer) as the descriptions were quite detailed.

The major dissatisfaction for me came from the romance. It's fluffy and the ML is respectful, ... more>> but somehow I felt that I couldn't connect with the romance or see any chemistry between the protagonists. I guess some of the earlier reviewers mentioned this but the MC really seems like a Mary Sue (or a Gary Stu). Some parts of the romantic plot were quite legit, like the ML being understanding instead of pushing down the MC to do have s*x or him helping the MC through his trauma. I just felt that these elements could have been explored in a better way. Some of you might feel impatient with the pace of the romance like I did.

Spoiler

By Ch 21, the two protagonists barely had any interactions. The ML had only seen the MC a few times and thought he might be amusing. I don't know how that suddenly transferred into love. By ch 60+, the ML was just slightly possessive over the MC. And after he realized his feelings, he became quite proactive.

[collapse]

At this point, I feel that the author felt pressured to rush into the romance since the novel is quite short compared to other novels of the same genre. I guess they were too engrossed into world building and forgot to focus on the BL aspect. I'm already at ch 81 and I don't know how the last 15 chapters will be. But I feel that I would've enjoyed a more patient build up of the romance spanning upto 120+ chapters. The pace was just too slow in the beginning and now, it just feels a bit rushed. But I might change my thoughts after completing the novel.

The best part of the novel for me is definitely the cat. It's very cute! 🐱 🐱

Tl;dr - It's fluffy, has lots of gaming info and will make cat - lovers melt. So you can give it a try but don't get your expectations too high. <<less

I like fluffy bl. But this one is cringey af, the MC was portrayed as a traumatized, neet, weak, and sickly. But when he and ML met, he was described like a beautiful think angel wtf. He's filled with mary sue and acts so feminine. Ans there's so many plotholes, some parts that should've been continued in the story was forgotten. It's like the author has no idea what to do with the story anymore.

I can't bear reading this for the second time I might puke from all the cringe.

Fantastic. If you ever play Ragnarok online, the mmorpg you would love this. The game system and play style if based on that game with virtual reality. The characters are written well, real and funny. The gaming aspect is similar yet different. An enjoyable, entertaining read all around. I'm looking forward to finishing this novel. Translator Keep working Hard!

4 stars.

It is actually cute but it seems hurried to the end. There were plot holes and forgotten foreshadowings. It would have been better.

In thr beginning there was another couple until the middle then they were just forgotten. Nit a single mention considering they were the first friend of the MC in the game.

There was also the plot with the president of the enemy's guild. When you read their interactions, it seems that they were plotting something about the MC. But then it was just thrown to the tr*sh bin... more>> and was never mentioned again.

Such a good potential, wasted due to haste.

Nevertheless, it was a light and good read. <<less
