I Rely on Kisses to Clear Survival Games


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

Cheng Zhi Chu was pulled into an infinite stream of horror games. If he didn’t clear them, he would die.

But can someone tell him why others clear the games using violence and force but his method of clearing the game is by kissing the boss?!

Cheng Zhi Chu: I am a straight man. Even if I kill myself or am killed by monsters, I will not kiss the boss!

Boss: Be good. Kiss me and I’ll let you go.


Bai Yi had been trapped in the game for many years.

Rather than exploding in anger in the silence, he had turned crazy. And so…….he split himself. His soul was broken into many pieces and each of them became the boss in the games.

But, regardless of how the soul was split, from the beginning to the end there was one thing that didn’t change —–He, likes Cheng Zhi Chu.

Every fragment of his soul was utterly in love with him.

It was also because of this that he and every fragment of his couldn’t stand seeing people other than himself getting close to Cheng Zhi Chu —- Even if the other party used to be a part of himself.

Dark desire gradually surged inside him.

Anyone who gets between him and Cheng Zhi Chu——even if it’s himself —– he would kill them all.


“The person who you should really kiss……is me.”

This was a really nice read, 10 people out of 10 would recommend it
The horror is spooky and gruesome without being too much, the instances stories are well done and super engaging, and every fragment is interesting.

... more>>

Pour one out for poor Su Ling who deserved so much better.


That's the main problem: every fragment is actually more interesting that the ML Bai Yi. Even the other romantic option in real life for MC are more interesting, but that's another story.
Bai Yi is defined by his love for Zhi Chu (not a bad thing!)... but outside of that there is not much going on for him at all.
The Fragments get some nice backstories while Bai Yi...

Bai Yi saved MC's life when he was 8 and fell in love and that's it. He stalked him for years and that's it. Even his relationship with his cousin is empty.

At times the fragments felt more alive than him.
Which is really problematic when Bai Yi is supposed to be the real one.

That's not to say the main romance is not nice or well done: I actually think it progresses organically and the start of it it's really fun with the misunderstandings about sexual orientation.

The extras were better than I expected and I ended up wanting more. All those fragments deserved their own arc

The wasted potential of Chrisis vs Kashir makes me sad.


I may be complaining but it's because I love each fragment so much! That's a sign that the author did a fantastic job.

As for Zhi Chu... he did the best he could in the situation, really no faults there. I actually liked him a lot!

And I appreciate that he clearly has favourites fragments. Xie Yuan Huai gets an obvious special threatment in the narrative and from MC.


If you have the time, read it, you won't regret it! <<less

This story is so gooddddd. I like everything except giving a well not a love rival, I really felt bad for the guys who liked the MC that is not the ML (not the bai yis). They all have good intention and it would have felt better if they did something really bad. So I think it was really unnecessary. But that's just maybe me pet peeveing. This is really a must read.

Hi everyone! It's KK, the translator for this novel. My review is biased because I'm the translator so please take it with a grain of salt ><

I just wanted to leave a review because I felt the need to comment about some things. First of all, you should be able to tell by the cover, the title and the synopsis but I'm going to emphasise it here: This novel is NOT SERIOUS. NOT PLOT HEAVY. The main focus of the novel is to be funny, ridiculous and light-hearted so that... more>> it would be a nice easy read when you're in the mood for something different.

Secondly, MC is your normal, average guy and he reacts to things the way you expect normal people would so he naturally will get scared. (Sometimes I just don't understand it when people attribute 'being timid or weak' as being 'girly'... Guys can get scared too!!) ML on the other hand is OP. He's the boss. He's strong. He's OBSESSED with MC. I think you can probably picture what the dynamic between MC and ML would be like just from their character set up.


MC is just a sweetheart that bumbles around and does his best protecting others and his soon-to-be boyfriend. He wouldn't even hesitate risking his life for ML when ML is in need of saving.



Please don't expect an MC like Game Loading/Earth is Online. The tone is obviously completely different. The ML is a yandere in this novel and most of the funny situations happen because of the MC's naivety towards ML's feelings. I personally can't picture a serious, self-sufficient MC opposite the ML especially when ML loves using 'saving MC' as a chance to eat MC's tofu LOL


Anyway, I liked this novel because it was fun and light-hearted.

ML's diary at the end of each of the chapters were great and I enjoyed reading about ML eating his own vinegar. All the fragments also took on very different personalities so it was very fun watching them vying for MC's love. The slowly unfolding mystery behind MC and ML's past was also something that was quite well done albeit a little predictable. The downside with this novel was that it was too short and I personally would have liked a few more instances before it ended. More development for the side characters would be great too and I wanted more scenes with the novel mascots!



MC also technically didn't need much saving afterwards because he manages to kiss the boss's before ML's arrival AND he clears quite a few instances on his own.....


Anyway, to each their own I guess! If you're looking for something simple, light-hearted, fun and easy to read then you're at the right place (but be warned there's a yandere ML, and there's gore and death). If you're looking for something plot heavy and more serious with a strong MC like Game Loading/Earth is Online, please turn away~~ 😊😊

Despite its flaws, I gave this novel 5 stars because I did quite enjoy it.

Happy reading!

Reviews are contradictory on this one, I'm surprised about that, because some are opposite on same aspects, like pacing or story, or characters.


    • The story starts off with MC already being in the instance, the beginning is really fast-paced and serves as introduction that MC is now bound to infinite escape and to clear the instance he must kiss and collect the bosses (they're sealed as photos in a book), otherwise he'll be trapped inside forever. The feeling of the story bends towards horror games more as well as uses its' mechanics (like the use of skills, tonics, weapons and items) and horror part meant to create an atmosphere of creep and dread (no ironic type of horror you might find in 'I wasn't born lucky' or scream queens like in 'Game, live stream', if you read those). Deaths in these instances are gruesome and bloody as well as the overall descriptions of monsters. The author has put enough efforts in descriptions to immerse the reader, though some parts are a bit questionable, but it's managable. Right from the second instance the story introduces other players, including ML, who off the bat (in diaries that come at the end of each chapter) lays out the "mystery" behind bosses and himself, which is a split of his soul and each part being a boss in instances. That is how they all share mutual attraction towards MC and, obviously, jealous of each other. Also he slowly starts to reveal the story behind his and MC's history, that it's not plain - oh wow, what is this cute little person, must have.

    • MC. I will side-glance anyone who will claim he is smart, because he's basically not. He acts like an average person, he gets scared, he gets ideas how to deal with things, he runs from danger, he tries to save others, others also help him. Speciality: his luck is bad. The only really irking part of entire novel is the 'I'm straight' part, he stresses on it so many times that gets on your nerves, as if he tries to cnvince himself along with others.
    • ML. An obsessed type with usual pack of wanting to be together, kiss and do papapa. What eases the impression of him being weird is actually the fact that he is bosses and bosses are him, they're same person, so feelings described by the bosses are his feelings too and you can feel the loneliness and longing.
So far, enjoyable. Will be seeing how it goes.

Now that I'm done... Redoing my review.

MC- I overall do like him. Not OP, realistic reactions. I don't understand how he could fall in love with the ML. Once he "gets used" to kissing bosses, he's a bit more cringe.

ML- Don't like him. Besides the amusing dairy entries and how they come up at the end, I don't find him likable at all. I roll my eyes every single time they have to talk about him being handsome. Who cares how good the packaging looks if there's no... more>> content? Also murderer? Yandere... uh... hello? If you can't make the relationship interesting, could it at least be healthy?

Bosses- The bread and butter. Literally all of them have more personality than the ML himself. Some of them have outstanding chemistry with the MC. I would read a whole series that takes place in any one of their instances with them as the focus love interest. Even the obviously rushed last one... as is, those chapters are so hurriedly put together and a terrible climax "against the big boss". But it came with a lot of good ideas that just didn't reach their potential.

Side characters- Mixed bag. Overall... do they matter? This is where you obviously see the writer must have had ideas but forgot to come up with a conclusion or some kind of pay off. Cursed items are great, but seem to get forgotten more and more until convenient.

World building- You don't learn why anything exists until the very last chapter. So you just have to deal with that. Why make it a game and add game mechanics? I feel like the writer doesn't have much experience with video games and just threw around terms like "levels" and "limits" when convenient. This is where the story lacks the most. It's not thought out at all and lacks both sense and imagination.

Translation- Thank you for the time and effort that went into this. It's an easy read, and I overall can see that the translator had fun with this story.

Overall- It's not a terrible story if you just read through it and not give it any deep thought. Otherwise, you're not missing out on much.

Original, long review:


To be transparent- I don't like yandere characters. I always had a great dislike for them in movies and anime. But because I was on a horror/survival BL train I ignored the tag and decided to read this anyway. So I'm currently not so supportive of the ML, and I don't have that much left to read. His dairies at the end of each chapter are usually very amusing and something to look forward to. But his actions in the actual story are all the tropes that make a yandere a yandere. He cares for no one but the MC causing others to be left for dead. He does not lift a finger for others, not even to leave a good impression for the MC. He honestly doesn't even help with passing the instances and is only around to keep the MC safe if needed. I am at a point where I don't exactly understand *why* he even likes the MC as much as he does unless I am suppose to think of it as a love a first sight type of love.

Honestly, this story makes me fall in love with the bosses more than the ML. One could argue that they "are" the ML, cause they're fragments of his shattered soul, but time and time again it's expressed that they take on their own forms and personalities so I don't consider them to really be him. So I wind up longing to read more of them than of him. Heck, I wish some of the instances could just be their own novels.

On the other hand... I love the MC. He's realistic with his reactions to these situations. He's not overpowered in any means, is kind, a good team player, and provides the cuter humor. He's just doing his best, okay? Him interacting with cursed items is great, often bringing some lighthearted humor in the middle of a dark situation. But I'm also not convinced about him suddenly being attracted to the ML. Cause he was nice to him?? Kind characters becoming infatuated with possessive types makes my skin crawl a bit. I thought them getting together would feel more natural if I kept reading, but it really doesn't. I saw a comment saying that it's good that the MC rejects another character cause it proves that you can't just make someone fall in love with you by being good looking and pushy... but that's how I feel about the ML. He's just pushy in a less obvious way.

Most of the instances are strong and support the story well. That said, there is ONE so far that takes up a lot of chapters and felt like a waste of time just to make you feel awful. I get the author probably wanted to write a serious and sad instance, but it didn't provide anything to the *main* story. It revealed 1 character being someone important, but that's a detail that could have been shoehorned in anywhere. I couldn't help think that this instance just exists to get a rise out of reader's emotions aka "to make you feel bad." And it did not help my opinion of the ML at all because he ends it in a way that makes you feel terrible with 0 closure.

Overall- I believe this is worth the read for the MC and his ability alone. But I feel like I actually would have enjoyed it more if it was about him and the bosses instead of him and the ML. So this story is a mix of characters that suit different tastes- at the very least, they are written well for their archetypes, so I understand why many reviews adore the ML... heck, that answers why I don't like him. Well written yandere! All the instances are unique and really cool excluding the 1 I just really did not enjoy. They're fun mysteries inside of a big serious mystery.

World building is actually kinda bad, but you never think about it. All my questions about the how/why of the game might get answered soon though. I think I can update reviews when that happens? Until then, just know you don't really know much about how this "game" is able to do anything or why all the way to c73.

interesting premise though I find the MC to be a little too girly for my liking (as in he behaves like the female MC in many Chinese stories; clever but not smart, always pampered and in need of rescue by the ML). The latter half of the story did redeem him somewhat but he was still disappointing. On the bright side, he wasn't a total idiot MC.

the mystery kept me reading further and I'm surprised that we didn't get more copies before the end of the story; he only had... more>> 4 or 5 parts out of the 186 he was supposed to collect and at least 2 of those were real-world instances rather than game copies. I was hoping for 8-13 worlds, which is common for these kinds of stories, but this shorter than most.


I also wanted to see them tackle the big bad in a lot more detail. One chapter in the afterwords isn't really satisfying after everything he did

I'm only giving two stars for the translation, but I dropped after ~20 chapters because I can't stomach the way the MC acts.

  1. The MC is a college student but acts like a naïve, dumb scaredy-cat. From the very beginning, the MC only knows how to cuss, scream, and get scared. This continues on to other instances that the MC enters.
  2. In the first instance, instead of being wary of his teammates, the MC immediately relies on the ML and trusts the ML because of a good first impression. This makes no frecking sense, like you're in a survival horror game darling, why is your vigilance so low?? After the first instance is over, the MC proceeds to tell the ML about all of his secret skills/abilities/missions, um hello, have you never heard of stranger danger?? I know the ML is a good guy and all, but the MC seems to have no self-awareness that not all teammates are as kind and understanding like the ML. Plus this is the first friendly meeting between the MC and ML.
May be it's normal to cuss, be scared, and rely on the ML for everything after suddenly being thrown into a horror game, but the MC is like a damsel in distress that requires the ML to save him at almost every turn. Just... more>> from the first instance I think the ML saved or helped the MC at least 5 times. It's fine to receive aid once or twice, but needing the ML to help you every single time is really irritating. It just feels like the author wanted to write about a weak, naïve, innocent female lead but changed the gender to a male instead.

Overall, I'm thoroughly disappointed with the MC's character depiction. I was expecting a MC similar to the MC in Game Loading or The Earth is Online, but boy was I off by lightyears away. <<less

I binge read this novel. This is my first time ever writing a review, but I thought this novel was pretty good. It had ghosts, horror, what you would expect.

But GOD, is the ML stale. He has no personality. We barely know him, even at the end. I literally did not care about him in the least. The MC gets extremely s*upid towards where he accepts he is in love.

... more>>

I would rather MC have a relationship with Xie Yuan Hua or any of the ghosts tbh. The majority of them have actual personalities and reasons to love MC besides "seeing him in a dream". I liked this story SOLELY because of the ghosts. Bai Yi was a terrible character, in my opinion. Mainly because his personality is just.... loving Chen Zhi for no reason?


But yeah, 4/5 for the instances. <<less

Ok... so I just finished reading this and let me tell you, I got blue balled so hard with this novel. I get that there wasn't gonna be any smut to begin with but man, can you blame a girl for getting her hopes up when the make out scenes are so unf!

Anyways, my perverted self was extremely happy when I found this novel, not only does it have a soft yandere (in my opinion) ML but the MC isn't overly incompetent and actually reacts to things in a realistic... more>> fashion. Also HUGE + that it was based around horror. But if you're worried that you're not gonna get any sleep at night, don't be. I'd rate this kind of horror as more of a "scary descriptive instances" horror. To give you a perspective: if you've watched House of Wax or IT and didn't think those were scary then you're fine.

Overall, I loved it, the ML has half his soul split, with each shard representing a boss. The ML has to basically kiss these bosses to put the MLs soul back together. I don't want to go into too much detail because it's really quite a ride, but you'll definitely have your favorite boss at the end of this.

I definitely recommend it for people who are just getting into horror/yandere tropes. Be ware of blue balling though, those kiss scenes are no joke! <<less

i liked it! I never realized there was a genre of horror and romcom combined, which really suits my tastes (i love horror), so I had fun with this one before dipping into "a crowd of evil spirits lines up to confess to me" and "to be a heartthrob in a horror movie."

MC acts exactly how the average joe would react - he thinks on his toes, gets scared crapless, and slowly starts getting onto the hang of things. If you're irritated by him continuously insinuated he's straight it's okay,... more>> in that line of thought he's acting exactly how an actual straight man acts if you probe their thoughts about liking men at all.

it's a unique story plot in my opinion, considering the ML's backstory. ML is a yandere if you didn't see the tags lol but I'm perfectly fine with that anyhow. His diary entries are pretty funny most parts. <<less

Already I can tell this novel deserves a 5 star rating. There aren't tons of novels that make me so tempted to go ahead and machine translate myself instead of being patient and waiting for the translator to work their magic. Machine translating is frustrating and I'm normally too lazy, so it's ultimately not worth the hassle. This is one of those novels that surpasses that barrier because its so damn intriguing that I can't stand the wait. There are two reasons why:

#1 (seen below) is the most influential... more>> reason for why everyone who likes bl should read this novel. It is also sadly, I'm worried, a mild spoiler : (


My favorite thing about the novel is the varying juxtapositions that bring things to a whole new level of intriguing. Our MC is put into what would be a horror situation in any other novel and yet, it's almost exactly the opposite because of the ML's help. Our ML comes off as noncommittal in the main story through the eyes of the protagonist, but then in his little side notes you see that he's anything but with a spicy possessiveness revealed.


#2 The ML is possessive of the MC. So, maybe this point wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but the ML's yandere like possessiveness hits the sweet spot for me. If that's what you're into for a ML this novel is 100% recommended. <<less

So far, this novel has been pretty enjoyable! I say that as some weird fan of horror/survival BLs (Idk why I find them more fun to read than other genres), but also because the author attempts something fun with their writing. I haven't gotten to find out why the horror game exists, and I don't know if that's particularly relevant in the end, but the structure of the novel itself is typical: Reality --> Copy --> Reality, and repeat. The game system/mechanics are fleshed out somewhat in the story but... more>> not particularly in-depth. I feel like the author did it to progress the story but the stuff like level is pretty irrelevant except for special items called "Curses." I feel like there's going to be a relevant pay-off later on (there hasn't been one yet, outside out of a cute companion the MC gets). Considering that the novel is only 90 chapters, I think the author manages a good enough job despite rushing.

The main appeal for me of this novel is the slowly revealed history between the MC and ML. I guess I don't want to give too much away, but one crucial point is, the MC is not as straight as he keeps insisting he is (Romancing straight people is a general pet peeve, but I understood and tolerated it in this novel). Their history is revealed through the copies the MC/ML participate in... the copies themselves are okay? They're sometimes a bit gory in the description, but I guess that's the point of the genre, so credit to the author for making me feel that slight cringe.

The characters themselves are pretty fine. The ML is obsessive and a psycho (to other people besides the MC), but I don't know if that's his actual personality considering his soul got split into, get this, like 186 pieces. FYI, early on the MC gets this book that holds the portraits of all the bosses he has to kiss and there are that many empty slots lol. Considering the length of the novel, I'm pretty sure he does not manage to kiss them all but that would've been some kind of epic. So I'm hoping for a semi-normal ML by the end. He's actually pretty gentle and cute towards MC. Like the translator says, he has these little diary entries at the end of each chapter and they're pretty cute sometimes. When they're the possessive entries, they get kind of stale, but they're fairly short and more like a reflection of his thought about something related in the chapter.

MC has his own merits: he's kind and not particularly OP, which is always refreshing. He bumbles around and does his best, but I guess the most prominent part to him is how he keeps insisting he's straight. This is particularly relevant because he has (so far) three guys who are interested in him. Of the two non-ML characters, one is likeable and one is not. I'm not sure why the author included them as they don't really provide tension romance-wise (since we know who the MC will probably end up with)... but I guess they give an excuse for the ML to be psycho-possessive (in his head and hostile towards them).

That's as far as the thoughts I have so far on the novel. Hopefully it continues to be enjoyable and the development continues to be interesting. Worth a try! <<less

Honestly, the MC wasn’t that clever when everyone claimed he was. He was more on the dense side almost bordering s*upid. Not that I hated it, just kind of annoyed me sometimes. Also, there were some side characters that may have been unnecessary for the story to flow, probably only introduced as to add spice?

But apart from that, the plot is good, there’s lots of fluff and the ML was rather amusing (possessive MLs ftw). Just take into account that the extras are more of a must-read because they tidy... more>> up the loose ends that the main story didn’t explain.

i just wish it was more explicit, if you know what I mean. (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) <<less

It was a good read, it reminded me of Game Loading a lot. If you're expecting an OP, cold MC who don't need no man then you might want to click away. In this book, the MC is naive, cute, not exactly weak but not strong either. It can be said that he relied on the ML a lot. Do I hate that? Not really. But I did get kind of annoyed, maybe because I was expecting the MC to be stronger at some point. The character development was (probably?)... more>> there. As I read I saw MC grew from a scaredy cat into less of a coward (lol).

The horror and suspense were quite good. It wasn't exactly that scary since you'll get some lovey dovey moments so it was quite easeful. The mystery also got my brain working. There were ML's diaries written at the end of each chapter and they were really cute.

The only part I was dissatisfied with was Mr. Mu's story. The author depicted him to be the main villain of the story, but we did not encounter him at all (apparently because he was already defeated by the ML in the past and had become a monster trapped in the game?). But I mean, if you're going to write about a villain who caused misery upon the ML then you might as well write it thoroughly. Tell us the detail of how he managed to kill ML and how in the end he was defeated. Not just some "ML: After he killed me, we met again in the game, we fought and I won". It gave me the impression that the author was lazy and couldn't bother to explain his background story.

The MC was also quite stubborn about his sexual orientation lmao, it was around 70 chapters later that he finally realized and admitted that he liked ML. I felt that the story ended kinda abruptly but all in all it was excellent. <<less

2.5 at most. This is like Earth is Online meets Game Loading but really toned down in terms of quality.


    • Pinecone aka the bear
    • The Devil's coin
    • School Arc

      Loved the plot about Su Ling, too bad it's too short

    • Variety Horror Arc

    • ML - dont like him, he's funny at some point but he's a boring character. He's the usual ML that's made with a pot of vinegar.

      The way he fell in love with MC is still a mystery. No backstory at all, just dreamt of him then, bam, love ya to death. Also, he's a fcking killer?? Tho the person deserved that dont we need more info on this???

    • Story behind ML's situation

      That thing about Mr Mu was fcking disappointing, what was that??

    • Last arc.

      mermaid, knight, etc ML version

      Just nope.
Read this only if you're really bored.

It's nice that there are more horror/survival genres being translated. This translator is fantastic, very smooth and flowing translations.

This story had a lot of potential, but unfortunately, it somehow falls flat at critical moments.

I would recommend this book to those who want minimal commitment, and quick entertainment in the survival/horror genre but have read all the other good ones. Even the horror arc in [Don't Pick Up Boyfriends in the tr*sh Bin] had more impact.

Some of the horror aspect and moments were well detailed and gruesome, but they were pretty... more>> much immediately interrupted by hero-rescuing-princess, sap and cuteness. Thus, this can't really be counted in true horror genre; it's really not a dark story at all. It felt like I was reading about one of those 5-min horror mansion rides at an amusement park.

The ML is almost always there to rescue the MC, be OP, and glare any horrific ghosts into submission. The MC also has skills to discover any clues, so many parts of the "journey" are glossed over and summarized. Any tense moments are quickly broken up by comedy, and scary creatures immediately turn into cute things 5 seconds later. For people who aren't that into this genre, that's a good thing.

But unfortunately, that also means there's lots of "telling" instead of "showing" which makes the story a bit boring.

The only thing that keeps the reader interested is the mystery about the MC and ML's past, which was done very well. The author had a lot of really interesting ideas and plots, but they were resolved too quickly and without the MC having to participate.

If you actually like the horror/survival genre, I recommend [Doomsday Wonderland]. If you like the premise of the ML being split into a ton of souls, better worldbuilding, and some survival, I recommend [Game Loading]. If you like mystery solving/survival/teamwork, I recommend [Card Room].

In the end, nothing really stands out in this one other than for a fast entertainment read. <<less

i've wasted 20 hour straight reading this.. I did not regret that. Even tho my eyes are getting bad now (and my soul) ;-;. It was worth it. It's a HE so it's also good. I like how the ML is all possesive and how cute the MC is.

At first, I was very excited reading this; the premise sounded interesting, the translation was good, and it was basically a well written, sexier version of "to be a heartthrob in a horror movie", a novel that was severely underwhelming. The"escape game" setting made more sense, and gave a real sense of danger. The instances themselves are good, and I can say that those are the strong point of the story. But as we begin to explore the overarching plot of the story, we can see that the author bit... more>> off more that they could chew and kinda made it up as they went.


For example, we find out that bai yi's soul was fragmented and became various bosses, and that the reason for that AND his original murderer was Mr. Mu. Generally when the villain behind it all is discovered, that builds up to the climax, that would be defeating him, but the author didn't want to write that, so she killed him lmao. Also when they went to the origins of why bai yi liked MC, they created that serial killer things, which was well developed, but the start of it all was that bai yi liked him before that, he appeared in his dreams? Which seems important because, yknow, is the foundation of his "like" and the thing that made him a target for the psycho, but it's never developed. And many more cases

. So the story has a lot of weird parts that were clearly building up to something, but didn't lead to anything, and I wouldn't even call them plot holes, because everything was given an explanation, but you can tell that they were last minute thoughts. If I were the author, I would finish what I started and tie everything up in an intricate way, or don't even start make those convoluted side plots. Main couple is also very 2d.

It is impossible to not notice this, but instances are so well done and the writing is so comedic and charming that I can still say I liked it <<less

Very very funny story that you need to read if you like very OP and possessive ML and a cute but not dumb MC.

Each instance / game is really well built and the overall story is especially well written. It has still some "gruesome" (I'm including the "" because it is not THAT gruesome but there can be some description that could make some sensible people feel uneasy at most maybe), but the interactions between the ML and everyone who stands a little bit too close to the MC is... more>> soooooo funny!


For example, during one game, there is a teddy bear who is a real devil and can kill a player in one swing, then proceed to eat it. But the doll is very still afraid of the ML who wants to kill it before the teddy bear (I'll call it TB) attacks MC. And to survive the ML's wrath, TB just calls MC "mommy" and the ML "daddy", and the ML does a 180° change of mind and adopts TB, calling it their child and all. It made me laugh sooo hard!!!


Anyway, a real funny story. I laughed so many times I really recommend it. Though be aware of some parts that can make sensitive ppl uneasy (it is very light imo tho) because of the Yandere character and the gore tag. <<less

This novel is really cute and fluffy. And I like the way the author wrote about the gory scenes vividly.

MC is timid and cute, a total bottom who refuse to admit it. I kinda pity some of ml's fragment soul because MC don't like some of them. Unlike game loading, MC there accepted ML wholeheartedly. No matter what form he takes or what personality he possess.

But what I like about this novel is how the author is kind to MC not to let him suffer so much dillema since his... more>> mission is not to please the soul in order for it to return and just kissed it. If not, thinking about the violent personality of ML with self harm, then it can only be war. And adding the MC's timidity and s*upidity he won't be able to finish any mission despite ML love for him.

So, like like like this novel for its mildness in dog blood plot. But pity for ML who always got tortured. Ml's soul fragments back story is extremely sad, I cried multiple times reading their story. Specially the one who became teacher Zhou, Su ling too. They all suffered. (。•́︿•̀。) I like ml's family their really cute. And ml's cousin who can kill at will has a potential to be a yandere candidate. (。ノω\。) Over all, this novel is great, fun and fluffy. It's cute to the bones. Very recommended. <<less

I personally liked the novel although there are some arcs that were left unjustified. For example the bloody fairytale, it would have been good if it was longer and more development about the vampire prince and how the MC reunited with Chrisis.

I've grown to love some of the soul fragments such as Xie Yuan Huai and Su Ling. Overall, this is a good novel for those who were binging.

I prefer reading quick transmigration novels and haven't touched a bl novel like this in a long while. I took interest in this novel bc it had two things that appealed to me: 1) It was a horror genre based novel and 2) Yes I also chose it bc it was similar to world hopping (however the MC can return to his world between these game worlds). After a few of MC going through these games, I found this novel was both equally vivid in horror and bl themes (there's... more>> our shou who keeps insisting he's straight (initially ;)) and the possessive and powerful going who only has eyes for our MC). I was a little frustrated to be honest with how slow the romance was developing at first (but that's just me since I'm so used to the quick 10 to 20 chapters of developing romance in bl QT). However I persisted reading to the end and OML yes you won't regret. The translator had said it will eventually be an HE and that's what kept me going and I am 100% glad I did. The romance does pick up and then when the plot and mysteries are unveiled you become sucked straight in. You'll be finding yourself in questions and dog food and vinegar and a lot of laughter (despite the horror elements). I don't want to reveal much but if you can handle some horror descriptions and are looking for some bl with game elements, some type of world hopping (but theres one consistent world and ML), a MC who actually falls for the ML too but doesn't realize that the ML likes him from the start, or just a different bl book in general, then definitely read it. Also the diary entries of the ML at the end of every chapter makes the novel 1000x better xD <<less
