One day, when Xiao Tang read a semi-autobiographical book that smeared his male god’s name, Xiao Tang angrily threw the book and ended up passing through.

A book separates the two worlds, on one side is the 5G era, and on the other side is inside the book named “Thank you, for your love in 1999.”

Tang Jinyu, a 17-year-old high school student, has shrunk to a small toddler. He tries to step on a small stepping stool to see the world outside his front door, but he ends up seeing his male god carrying a schoolbag passing by…

He lives next door to his male god =口=! !

This story was such a journey! If you're looking for realism, a loving and large family and a beautiful but very slow build romance in the slice of life shounen ai genre, this is absolutely the story you are looking for! One important caveat- you need to be able to switch from cooing over an adorable little kid MC to rooting for him in his love story. This is definitely going to be difficult for some folks. By NO means is this something that should trigger your bottom line for... more>> underage romance. By the time our main couple gets together not only is the MC, Jinyu, grown up, but he's also firmly in charge of the pace. I'm not denigrating those who give this a pass either. There is a definite age difference that can turn some people off and some folks have a harder time accepting the very dramatic shift from tiny toddler to grown up in the space of a novel since it's so easy to become protective of kiddos. That said, the author employs their time skips in a gradual way. It didn't feel abrupt or awkward and as long as you go in with a flexible attitude towards the age progression I doubt you'll have a problem with it. There isn't a toxic power imbalance and the romance is incredibly sweet. This is a very happy and fluffy story! It was pure joy to read and I'll miss anticipating the next day's update! <<less

Definitely a good story, but if you're one to quickly boot stories that become a dragging type of slice of life, then I would only read until they get together and then drop it.

The thing about slow burn stories (imo) when writing them is that once you get to the romance, you either...1. Finish the story shortly after. 2. Bring in the smexy times after all the sexual tension (this story could not do that because of the lack of sexual tension, for obvious reasons where our MC is still... more>> a minor). 3. Bring in or continue an exciting plot to keep the readers engaged in the story while also keep them pining for more romance. However, because the story is a slice of life, it obviously failed in all three options and chose an external option that wasn't quite the best.

So my final advice for this novel: It's a great novel, but end it after they get together, especially if you don't like dragging stories. Or don't start it at all, but I think that's a waste of potential. <<less

This is slooow burn. The romance doesn't start until 120++ it is also slice of life so if you're looking for older seme, relaxing read with sweetness then it's for you.

MC is a little gary stu but still cute. ML is the cold but doting lover. MC is 17 when they started their romance and ML is 25 or 26 (they have age gap around 9-10 years). If you feel that it's iffy or it feels like grooming feel free to skip.

Their romance:

... more>>
Spoiler

They didn't have any attraction until MC is like 15+, most of his young life, MC treated ML like an idol/big bro and that quickly turn to something else when MC is older.

ML liked MC first but just waited for ML to become older. MC confessed first, ML want to wait but MC didn't want to. ML restrained himself a lot and didn't touch MC until he's ready.

I need to remind people that inside he's already 17-18 y.o and not a teen. MC is very innocent because his old self assimilated with his new self so he have the mentality of 16 yo book reality even though he already have experience of 17-18 yo original reality

[collapse]

About MC

Spoiler

He transmigrated to an alternate reality of some sort where the real him doesn't exist but he occupied another same name toddler body.

The toddler seems to be a low function autistic. And when MC occupied his body, he gets better.

BUT MC started to forget his old life and regressed mentally to a toddler mentality. It feels like MC assimilated with the body and the more he assimilated the more he forget and be healthier.

He still faintly remember his old feelings but he can't remember why.

Once he's around 16 he finally remembered all and his body was able to take the toll of remembering his old life. So by 16 his old and new life memories fully assimilated.

He went back to his original reality, turns out he's also sick (?) but gets better. He's adopted by grandpa. His gramp died and cut the ties that bind him to that reality. So he went back to book reality

[collapse]

This novel feels like double MC because author use 100+ chapters to not only establish MC but also ML. Usually when we meet ML he's already successful and rich af. But this time author patiently take time to develop ML to the archetype of Rich Cold Genius Doting ML.

Author also give a thorough background for MC and ML so their actions and personalities matched.

Well I'll probably give 5* if it's a bit quicker, I'm a bit impatient hehe. <<less

This isn't a bad story and it reads like a 'slice of life' genre for most of the first half. It's just the age gap that kills it for me.

It would be fine if they met at a reasonable age (even with the age gap -- I've read plenty of those before) but in this case, Xia Ye (the... ML) practically raised him (ML is the godson of MC's parents so a "brother" to MC) from a young toddler age??? Like when they wear shorts and knee high socks and... more>> cartoon shoes (legit description of MC's clothes) whereas Xia Ye is already running his own business, graduated from high school (roughly 17 or 18 years old) and is described as a handsome young man. This is them in the same timeframe. A legitimate toddler in shorts who you have to carry everywhere (hands around your neck style) and a boy who's at the age for a teen campus romance. The author has reinforced this image of a toddler so well that I feel unwell when I think about them getting together in the future. Like why?? This whole thing screams psychologically unwell and *crime*, So yup going to be skipping out on this one. <<less

Can I say that im so shocked to most of the reviews here. Many people complain that its so slow and all. Not realizing that this is not yaoi! This is slice of life kinda novel, and shounen ai is just the sub genre to it. This is a wish fulfillment novel and the romance is just an add on to it.

Anyways I really like this novel. The MC is groomed by the ML which I kinda liked 🥵. This is basically a slice of life/ grooming novel ✔️👁️👄👁️ I... more>> knw I have crooked thoughts <<less

2/5

for familial love only, a lil bit of fluff (maybe) ?, translation (check), the first half of the story was good

I Agree with @hanarealbess, I really liked the beginning of the story and how lovable and supportive the MC family.. but the story kinda got a lil bit astray where I really dont know whats happening anymore.. where is the story heading to?.. almost the first half of the story is how the MC is disabled I mean like he has some kind of disease so he tries really hard... more>> to try to crawl, walk or talk... then as he grows a lil bit older, I means for months? or how hes recovering from his illness? he forgot.. about himself.. the past.. his mission.. his goal... his grandpa... his male god..

but even tho he did forgot everything he is still obsessed with the ML, like very clingy.. then the story proceeds its like this :

Recovering from illness - amnesia from past life - learning intruments - getting to know ml-

im still at the middle part but I stopped like srsly I really dont know what the hell is going on anymore..

even his conversation with the ML were limited in one damn chapter, (srsly I dont feel any damn thrill at all)

and ml? I dont know they didnt really introduce him that much.... I mean they didnt even introduce hime YES. and okay when the MC still has his memories he mention that his male god (ml) was all time god hacker but he died.. on a plane crash.. smth thats all.. yes.. what I really dont like is when the pov shifts to the ML I couldnt undestand a damn thing.. at all.. I dont know whats happening... <<less

So I really liked the beginning but then it very quickly began to drag. I like slice of life, slow burn type stories. But this was so unsatisfying in a way I was struggling to understand as I was reading until one interaction summed it up.

... more>>
Spoiler

It's when they're going to surprise teacher Xia at his concert. Tang family surprise ML (and the audience since this is the first we're hearing of this) with flying to see his dads concert, he barely reacts and it's revealed that they thought this up just recently so instead of being sweet and thoughtful it comes off as impulsive? They go and stay at the same hotel as teacher Xia except HE comes to THEIR door already knowing about the surprise. And then they only stay for a day and barely describe his first day of concert but we do know that ML didn't enjoy his dads performance. Then they abandon teacher Xia and hang out while he is stuck performing for the next week. Where was this supposed to be satisfying or heartwarming? And the rest of the story is like this.

I'll tell you, I just want to have a cute and obedient younger brother like MC and a loving and independent big brother like ML!

This story is developing very slowly, the story is centered only on ML and MC as well. Romance also burns very very slowly, this is just a slice of life so don't expect any romance to come in 50+ chapters. But that's okay, you will be given fluffy and sweet things that will make your teeth cavity.

Minus? Well, I think MC's life is too smooth, too... more>> lucky so I feel unreal, even though MC has problems with his body but oh well, his family, friends and ML really love MC.

MC and ML have a brotherly relationship but are not related by blood, they are originally neighbors. It might be boring at first, but if you're digging for sweetness, read on!

++ : ML really doesn't want MC to grow up, lol, sometimes that statement makes him a little selfish but it's also moving. <<less

This is so cute. The MC is a little naive ball of fluff and the MC is the typical older brother next door. I love the family though. All of their interactions are so wholesome and sweet. The romance happens at the very end of the novel, since most of the novel is about the MC growing up. There were a lot of chapters from the ML's perspective, unlike most novels where the ML's background is vague and "mysterious". Sometimes, especially in the beginning of the novel, it feels like... more>> the ML is the MC, instead of the actual MC. Overall, a heartwarming novel. <<less

became a sick child with over protective family. He is a bit autistic (?) And fool in the eyes of others

[collapse]

Like in the spoiler, he meet his male God and being a brother next door. But it's not instant. Need step by step for ML to accept this little doll MC.

Spoiler

Until this chapter, their relationship still like a brother and his little tail. There's no romantis feeling between them. They are still kids on elementary and high school. But ML already success in his bussiness, and his relationship with MC family already like a real family. I think they Will smooth sailing when come out. But they Will take a lot of time to figure it out about their feeling

I like the fluffiness and the warm family situation in this novel. It's sweet. It's very slow in progressing with their romance because the story includes following the MC and ML growing up and never have I regret the day I was interested in reading this novel.

About MC's growing up

... more>>
Spoiler

maybe because he is regressing into a toddler (5 years old at the start of the story), his memory is also being suppressed. He still has the feeling that he is familiar with something like deja-vu but he can't remember. My guess is his memory is what makes his body in the book world so fragile

[collapse]

ML life is quite miserable at the start. He is a devoted son. Always worry about his father.

I like MC and ML's way of communication
Spoiler

and how funny it is when at the start, ML always teasing MC by saying he is bad in something and by some chance, when other people heared it (either it's ML's father or MC's parents) they would refute ML's statement

[collapse]

Development of the story

Spoiler

It's slow but it gradually reach the point where ML start to notice his romantic feeling toward MC. If I'm not wrong, it start from c99 or c100. In c126, MC starts to remember all of his memories

not expected the MC transmigration became 5 years old baby. The author did a great job make the storyline more rich and detailed to build up the characters among MC and ML. Just u know this is not typically spicy love dramas so until ch200+ you will gets the romance between MC and ML. Get ready to long drive until then.....

I usually don't write review but I've seen a lot of ppl complain bcos it's too slow. I, myself hate slow burn but this is the type book that you wouldn't mind no matter how slow it is (at least for me) the plot centered abt the mc's growing up life and his beautiful bond with his family especially the ml, im currently rereading it since I finished the rest in mtl back then and I love it just like the first time I read it. It's the type of... more>> book that you read to cheer up ur day, it's heartwarming and calming and it just put me in good mood also there's lot of dog food later after they're official <<less

4.5/5 for MC's cuteness (because he's a kid)

4.5/ 5 because wholesome family

so I really don't get the point of this. I just felt like I was reading just a life story about a cute kid with a really supportive family.

I agree that MC is cute (just a like a lil brother) but the author described him so much like a kid that it is difficult to imagine how the relationship is going to progress and also ML is a teenager and MC a 4-5 year old (?) with... more>> delayed growth so he acts like a toddler. They basically grew up together as brothers.

I haven't read the whole story, It was fine until chap 46 and I got bored :/

I just skipped few chapters and I guess by chapter 114 MC is going through puberty? And obviously no romance just ML being overprotective. <<less

If I have something to say... this story is really a long journey😂 I like both MC and ML. However, I’m not sure if I able to finish this. I always wondered the whereabouts of MC’s grandpa from past life. This story is 99% slice of life. When it says slow romance, it really up to its name. Gonna edit this if I finish this story. 😂

The romance is definitely slow pace but I don't care. I love reading the growth of the MC so I can wait on how long will it takes.

And compared to other transmigration novels the plot is unique and interesting!

The family is way too wholesome but they're honestly a realistic doting family. Always giving sweets and food. XD The author makes me care enough about the characters that I am definitely going to cry if something sad happens to any one of them. Anyways, I really like that this is going to be slow burn as hecc since love that develops with time >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> instant love.

Also, MC's and ML's parent (s) are so kind so I wouldn't feel that they would totally be against their future relationship, unless MC... more>> is still underage. <<less
