Mermaid Effect

As a former librarian, Rand felt that he had been living an ordinary life, the one that he had reclaimed unconsciously every single day.

Recently, he has been a little upset because the pet fish he accidently brought home to raised seems to have undergo some strange changes

Well, it turned into a merman.

I must said throught the short few chapters and mtl to the end. It quite of a good read. With many twist and turn, both of a fluffy lovely and a bit of gorey part.

... more>>

The MC is pretty cute, in the beginning he kinda the spineless one, but later there a bit of growing up happen to him, he remember some stuffs, get through a bit of gorey hardship. Then gain a bit of courage to do what he want without running away.


The ending was somehow a bit of a sharp cut off type. I would say this is an okay to read in passing types with it details and a bit of gorey overall.


It got bit of an open but sad ending...

There also aren't enough loving actions metions at all...

Munster later died in Rand's arm asking if he will become a bubble...

Ugh...i must say the ML is gross. Not personality based but appearance based. Since its involves mermaids/merman which is basically...a fish, you can expect a lot of fishy, mucus filled, disgusting scenes. Yucky! But this is also a plus point when compared to other mermaid novels coz there is no beautification of merfolk as an ancient creatures. All you get here is gore and monsters. The MC had gone through a tragic past which he don't remember and of all characters I love vincent. Poor guy! The story is good,... more>> worth read. Just I'm not satisfied which its story sequence. I think it can be better. <<less

I love this. I read this after "Desharow Merman" and I'm glad I stumbled upon it. I enjoy the translation and most of all the story itself is interesting. It doesn't just show the MC and ML, ... more>>

everyone is basically a psychopath and somehow Rand is in the center of this shitstorm

. Nothing is ever what it seems and I find myself constantly looking forward to the next chapter.

However, it is worth noting for those that want supernatural yaoi romance all the way, it's chapter 33 and nothing of the sort has developed. Although the foundation for the ML's love is slowly building but

we have never seen things from his point of view and we're not even sure if "he" actually has coherent thoughts or acts on instinct so it's hard to tell whether he loves the MC in the conventional human way. The MC has 0 interest in romancing his pet so yeah if you're here for the romance then this isn't for you

OMG! Such an incredible story. It's truly an emotional rollercoaster. Its probably has angsty and gory a bit, but all of them very worth it.

A scene where MC brutally r*ped but not too detail. Disgusting way of dying/killing. Ugh.


But most of them not very detailed, for me. Don't felt much nausea when reading it.

As for the ending, its


HE. A reviewer here said that its open ending/BE. But my raw its HE. I don't know whether the author updated or changed the end. Or the author has Alternative finish where the reviewer got BE, while mine is HE.

MC, ML, and MC brother managed to escape, and they living their life.

This is a well-written sci-fi/horror/mystery/drama that leaves my spine tingling and knows how to lay on the suspense. The characters all have their own depths, motivations, psychological issues, and secrets. It is one of the better mystery/horror series I've encountered in awhile, and I love the questions it inspires.

The use of imagery is excellent. The plot is intriguing and weaved in a web loaded with interconnected mysteries. The setting is modern-day USA, but there has NOT been any Chinese nationalism or sexism common in many other Chinese web novel series.

Although... more>> this has a yaoi tag, there has been no romance or smut thus far. This series is a good plot-driven story that also just happens to be a BL.

I am thirsting for more of this series and don't have any complaints about the series itself thus far. <<less

Its dark. Not really my type although I saw the ominous tages I still read it and to the end

I like the ml. I was searching for some different ML than the indifferent / cold / fasial paralysis Mls. God, most romance story whatever the type has this type of ml.

This ML is the first ML I ever read that got disciplined with slippers lol lol 🤣The main couple is cute. I like the idea of ... more>>

MC not feeling sexually attracted to munster untill external intervention. It is not the cause of him falling in love but it is very important and logical. After all ML is not a human and can't be judged completely by human attractions [/spoile]

The author really got over the bored in using dark elements or tragic incedents. She almost used every idea I saw before to the point that I don't sampathy with the MC any more (numb)... it is too much that it makes the story annoying.[

spoiler]Crazy family/kidnapping/torture /psychopathic/cannibalism/killing/ amnesia/ no friends/ betrayal/ over controlling brother/ r*pe/ unhuman experiment / dirting his hands with blood/ fugitive and blah blah


In my opinion the violent r*pe incident was the most unneeded. The direction of the story was far from these elements. Just blind mixing for more angest. <<less
