Marrying the Soft-hearted Villain


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

Ruan Qiuqiu had transmigrated into a cannon fodder that had the same name as her in the novel, Sweet Pampering in Ancient Times: Demon King Husband, Please Spare Me

Right now, there were two paths before her:

Option 1: Continue playing the role of the supporting female character. After a few rounds of being faceslapped by the female lead, she would die tragically in the beast tide.

Option 2: For the sake of the tribe having enough salt, marry the wolf tribe’s former chief, a fierce wolf demon that was disfigured, crippled, and possibly had personality issues.

Ruan Qiuqiu chose the second option without hesitation. She rather go live a peaceful and ambitious-free life than compete with the female lead over some guy.

Due to a mishap, Mr. Big Bad Wolf, who had the blood of fiends in him, had become disfigured, crippled, and blind.

He was on the verge of death and his tribe had abandoned him. When he fell to the state of being so hungry that he was gnawing on ice…

The young bride, who his tribe had exchanged 300 catties of salt for, carefully walked to his side and covered his ugly damaged body with an animal hide.

She softly called him, “Husband?”

I wanted to translate something sweet with early romance =). The main character and the love interest, the soft-hearted villain, are so sweet and cute together. It's puppy love. They have no baggage/negative preconceived notions from previous relationships. I really like that the main character and love interest mutually help and save each other and do thoughtful, little things for each other. I find it refreshing that the author doesn't use grandiose romantic gestures and the villain isn't jaded and black belly.

Edited to add: Ruan Qiuqiu (the "MC") ponders if... more>> they're two minors playing house at one point in the story, and I think that's a good description of their relationship dynamic. They're so inept in communicating with each other. They have unresolved misunderstandings because they're too shy to talk things out, but at the same time, they think the very best of the other party, even when they're missing the point. On one hand, I wish Yuan Jue (the "ML") didn't avoid talking to Ruan Qiuqiu out of shyness and inferiority and self-loathing for such a long time (I think its bad and lazy storytelling to repeat the same scene countless times. There could have been a time skip or the author could have been more sparing with how often she includes the ML's POV), but from the perspective of the characters, they're mostly happy idyllically strolling through their crush period. <<less

Good story but a bit melodramatic. Started getting bored with the constant romantic angst and contrived misunderstandings. Some here and there is fine but when its never ending you get numbed to it. Both ML and FL are constantly

"They touched my hand! Maybe they... but no! I'm hideous, how could they eber love me" *angst angst angst*.

Even when interesting things are happening and characters are getting hurt they somehow still have the extra mental capacity to continue their internal romantic angsting. And there are the usual contrived misunderstandings thrown in... more>> as well because why would you bother asking clarifying questions that would put an end to your internal melodrama? It was over 10 days living together before they learned each others names indirectly! They never properly introduced themselves. She learned his name from a visitor and still hasn't told him hers. At chap 60 he still thinks her silly nickname for him is a love rival! And one from his own tribe... the tribe she has only just visited... the tribe that treats her like sh*t. -_-

They're both constantly living in their own heads and trying to be mind readers. They have barely spoken a few sentences to each other over two weeks but are 'passionately in love'. Honestly, if they just talked a few sentences more most of the relationship drama would never have happened.

Not a bad story, plot is actually good. Author just went a little heavy on the relationship drama. Can only handle so much internal monologuing and author induced s*upidity. <<less

We got a realiable FL that doesnt act like a white lotus, she's strong minded, has a great resolution, a responsible wife.

We got a sympathetic ML that suffered most of his life 90%, near death experience, wounded body with a demonic core that makes him loss his mind and acts mu*derous.

The storyline

The storyline is a refreshing one, we got a slice-of-life experience where the ML doesn't immediately healed but instead they encountered sufferings together at the beginning which made the FL almost died too since the season of the story... more>> is in winter time. And in this case it's a fantasy primitive style where some tribes lives in cave and stuff.

Their relationship

Their relationship is cute. They discover each other's identity and character slowly and also falls in love.

Rated it a perfect 5 star and I highly recommend this one. Fuyuneko's works are usually up to a shoujo and josei lover taste that's why I always keep updated when she picks up a new work.

No doubt this is a good read. <<less

This novel is boring. With some other transmigration novels I sometimes felt like they were kind of sparse on content for their high chapter count, but I feel like this one is the worst.

Over 80 chapters of FL helping ML survive in cave -> ML thinks self deprecatingly that there's no way she can continue being nice to him. By chapter 83 the male lead is still severely injured and has spoken less than 5 sentences.

ML is finally speaking, but only minimally and extremely standoffishly. There are only about 5... more>> chapters at each end of this chunk where the FL actually interacts with other people, and the rest of the time the FL is just miserably surviving in a cave. There are only 40 chapters left to be translated, and I don't think it will salvage anything. My only hypothesis for why the rating is so high here is selection bias.

Of course some interactions are nice, but if the ML was replaced with an actual dying but kind, intelligent, and helpful wolf, not much would change. It would be pretty much the same story of taking care of an injured animal in a blizzard. Would you read that? Because to me it sounds like something I would be forced to read in high school. <<less

Its a great story so far for a face slapper.

Strong FL in a beastman world making the best of an arranged marriage and terrible living conditions. Very little mary sue-ness so far, which is a breath of fresh air. Even her golden finger, healing water powers, has to level up to eventual OP-ness. So far it's just barely managed to keep her and her new husband from not dying in the night.

If you're into this genre, you can appreciate that she's not a super nanny, ex-paramilitary, hidden diamond, super actress,... more>> with a b*tchy adpoted/half sister out to ruin her life and businesses and a hidden love child with the cardboard cutout ML. Definitely not that sort of story. XD

My only caveat is the translator divides up each chapter into 3-4 parts.

So while it says that we're up to chapter 116 out of 125+extras (or whatever chapter we're at when you read this) it's actually about 1/3 that. We're nowhere near the end.

It is well translated though, so I don't blame them for taking their time and dividing it up into manageable chunks.

But we're only just now getting to the point where our CP (probably) won't starve to death and the ML isn't a lump on the bed. Slow going. <<less

One of the true love romance novel. Our FL is not a white lotus or cry baby or black bellied or too fake. No. She is sincere, kind, and just want to live peacefully with her husband

This is a slice of life kind of story, but with a tragedy background story ... more>>

ML watched FL died in his previous life


ML is soooo cuteeeeeee


He is one of my favorite ML. He is so tsundere. When he shy, his ear will turn red. He can easily blushing just from daily interaction with FL (If I am the FL, I will probably end up in a situation where I can't help but want to bully him)

Their romance is the main focus. I think the hero and white lotus heroine has a so so ending. Their bleak ending is so ordinary that it make me feel like I don't really care about them. The big bad villain is so pitiful LoL. He only appear for a short chapter, and died immediately roftl

Overall, I still like this. Mainly because of ML and FL

Love this sweet couple <<less

So far pretty good. ML is so funny and sweet and pitiful :' (

Warning although it might seem like a lot of chapters as with all FuyuNeko translations one chapter gets split into 3-5 pieces (although this story is actually a bit longer than a lot of their other ones I think) so it's not actually that much to binge. Thus I suggest maybe waiting a bit longer if that's how you enjoy ur novels.

Ok, so the reason I gave this novel a four is simply because Fuyu Neko translated it and the female lead tries her best.
Other than that. Is pretty boring. They never speak to each other and just try to assume what’s going on each other’s mind.

Thankfully, most of the time they assume something true. Is just that it’s been 70 chapters and they haven’t had a proper conversation. They are “in love” but have never spoken more than 5 sentences to each other. Just assuming what’s going on. That’s my pet peeve with this novel.

But other than that, the MC tries pretty hard to survive a new environment and the ML is cute, even though he’s basically a rock with feelings. Meaning that he’s s*upid but cute.

I think this novel has a good basis, unfortunately, with the chapters broken up, the story drags on for what seems like forever. Currently, the translator has it at 155 chapters, but the 155th chapter is only chapter 60 in the raws.

But even without the translator breaking the chapter, the story progression is way too slow. I guess the author wasn't really kidding when they had the 'slice of life' tag.

... more>>

Even at chapter 50 in the raws, the MC and ML barely have any interactions with each other that develops the relationship or moves the plot forward. Everything is progressing at an extremely slow pace; especially with the ML fainting as soon as he does something and the MC having to take care of him every time (perhaps I was affected by the translation as I stopped reading the translations at chapter 58 and MTLed the raws, and thought everything was advancing slowly).

In the latest chapters I read (chapter 50 in the raws and probably like 140 in the translation), the MC finally uncovered a spot where precious herbs grow with the help of one of the villagers she saved. Danger was also brewing and the author gave subtle hints to why the wolf village didn't kill off the ML or leave him to die, something about him having a curse being the reason why they left him alive.

Hi guys, I will try to give you a very honest review.

1) So first of all, this novel has lots of misunderstand, (now wait and just heard me out) you know those cute ones that bring you the satisfaction of reading.

All the misunderstandings are very.... Logical.

... more>>

The ML has always been alone since birth and is very socially awkward


2) This novel has very short chapters so beware!

3) what I can guarantee is that you guys won't get bored reading it due to all the fluff 😍

4) In my opinion, this novel perfectly shows how one may feel after being disabled and mocked by the world. And how the FL slowly brought him out of his shell.

5) His injury takes a very long time to heal BUT the author later clarifies that it could've been instantly healed if he ACCEPTED himself, but he doesn't, since he doesn't want the FL to hate him.

So all in all, this a very good novel for those who love fluffy tails and fluffy interactions cause damn, I am cheering hard for the both of them! <<less

This is a heartwarming and rather slow story. The story for most parts revolve around the daily activities of the ML and FL

imagine 2 awkward but super sweet turtles interacting with each other, i.e., they don't talk much or at all but does stuff for each other


There isn't really a true villain in this story, or much drama.

Overall, it is a simple yet satisfying read, and not crazy long, which this story absolutely have the potential to be.

Starts out very, very strong, stays that way for about 100ish chapters or so, but then fizzles through lack of tight direction and focus. You can see the author deciding the ML isn't just severely injured, but injured AND cursed. And then not just cursed, but with a fiend curse! And then it's not just a fiend curse, actually he's half demon, half fiend, and if that isn't bad enough....

It was several escalations too far, and now they've written themselves into a corner and are stuck trying to come back... more>> from this and kind of can't. This is especially bad because we don't really care all that much about the intricacies of shattered demon core vs fiend core vs mutant human powers. We would rather like to go back to the relationship/ romance aspect instead and see them start to advance their relationship, get closer, and have him dote on our MC, crush her enemies, and be an adorable tsundere. But nope, we're stuck in weird, complicated debates on the nit picky details of what it means to be a hybrid.

Additionally, while the characters are excellent, (the MC is chef's kiss) the pace is sloooooooooooow. Like, it's been 200 chapters, and we're only on week 2, slow. It's a bit maddening. The ML's injuries are also fairly inconsistent. Like, he literally only has one leg. The other got bitten off below the knee. How in the world is he walking around in human form? Let along carrying things or running? He has one leg, and no crutches! He's also supposed to be 100% blind. which is ignored as well. It gets explained away as him being able to see with his demon powers. So then why make him blind at all? Neither the blindness nor the lack of leg are used in the plot to advance the story or cause scenarios (like, misunderstandings because he can't see her expression, for example, or his needing to rely on her for everything) so it feels superfluous, especially when the writer forgets and writes him doing things he can't possibly do with these handicaps.

I say enjoy the start of it, which is worthy of 5 stars, and then drop it when you get tired and don't look back. <<less

It definitely seems interesting but after looking at the translation group I feel a bit hesitant since they are notorious for cutting the chapters into 3 or 4 parts. It takes away the joy of reading >.<
Furthermore most of their novels follow the troupe of cliché and repeated plot points. So I don't think it will be very interesting unless you are looking to binge read some clichés for your guilty pleasure

Why the need for all meaningless misunderstandings and seriously in such a dire situation you still need to make your misunderstandings in your head and start being sad or angry or shy on your own while the other is thinking in the opposite direction.. Just open your mouth and talk. It all just feels suffocating

I think this excerpt from the start of the chapter that I'm dropping this at kind of explains 95% of this story so far: "Fortunately, Ruan Qiuqiu didn't know what Mr. Gray Wolf was thinking. Otherwise, she would definitely ridicule his reasoning."

It's definitely more unfortunate that she doesn't know, though.

This story is entirely about misunderstanding each other because the ML basically refuses to speak to MC. She doesn't even learn his name until somewhere around the 100s and by 157 the ML still thinks that the nickname she gave him... more>> is actually the name of some other Grey Wolf Demon that she's in love with. It makes sense if you consider the actual timeline of the story because it's maybe been 10 days at this point, but it just drags on a little too much.

I've been skimming for a while because I was hoping they'd move the plot forward a bit, but... I'm just too bored. <<less

I wish ML and FL communicated more. I mean... they don't talk to each other more than 5 sentences. Little communication means a big bunch of misunderstandings. Other than that, this is a cutest novel I've ever read. ML is shy and cute, he isn't the type to say "i love you" and r*pes her in her sleep. He's a gentleman. FL doesn't interested in scheming to hurt the others. Very refreshing if you read this after those ancient china palace stories.

A well written story with MC transmigrating to primeval time period where demons and fiends exist. ML is a wolf-demon who was hurt so badly, he was almost on death door when he met MC. MC is not an OP character, she struggles and slowly adjusts to the environment she's pushed into. Although, there is not much interaction between the two, their little gestures now and then show that they keep the other in mind first. So far, it's a slice-of-life story about their everyday struggles, their care for each... more>> other and their want of survival.

PS: Translated chapters are cut up a lot; 28 translated chaps = 10 raw chaps. <<less

I'm not sure if I want to rate this or not. The problem is the translator's website or method of posting, and not the actual story or translation.

Basically they post occasional chapters on Patreon. It seems to be available, but it's a giant pain in the ass to have random chapters show up on a different website. It's bad enough that I'm not going to continue reading this. I wish I had known, because I wouldn't have even started.

So... rate it as a 1 to warn people away, or don't... more>> rate at all because it's not really the story that I'm rating?

Coin flip says rate, so I'll rate. <<less
