Misplacement Game


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

This novel is also named “The game I got is different from yours” | “Game is different, what to do” | “Every time the target is the big BOSS” | “Why is the BOSS of Horror games always the most handsome?” | “They are running for their lives, I am falling in love”… and so on.

The protagonist is a s*ave to beautiful faces – he likes good-looking people, can’t say no to a pretty visage, and is filled with thoughts of love. One day he bonded with a target-capture system where he can travel from world to world and experience love with the most handsome (key point!) target!

The number of players in each game is not set. The protagonist has only one target – the most handsome one. As he falls in love, he realizes… the other players perhaps, maybe, probably… have Horror? Survival? Escape-type games?

Haha although I like this novel cause it's fun to read and the MC foolishness and ML varieties in several copies. I can see why some people are not satisfied in a way.

The plot is okay there's a starting point and the ending but there's some things that does add but and some don't. The author has good ideas but some execution is lacking a bit for ex. The climax before ending.

There's a good build up but then the middle part and before the end of the climax kinda rushed... more>> or there's some lacking details that needed to make that chapter feels satisfying. And the ending also feels abrupt.


MC meets the final form and we are dump with huge info and the MC while he finally decided to become his lover. The problem is the emotional build up was lacking from the climax to this point. The emotion that the MC has at the ending was just "well since your the "..." I can just be with you no problem" kind of emotion.


Still like I said I enjoy it. I recommend of anyone who wants to read this to not mind the plot much.

Such as how the MC is going through the world's with ease and still enduring horrors. Also lack of interaction with other players (I mean being friends to partner up with). Also how the boss is just the boss. Etc


If there's something to look forward from this novel is how the MC is enamored by beauty he becomes s*upid and the boss has different forms that they have some unique interactions between them. <<less

First of all the shou he uhmm~ A COMPLETE SCUMMY tr*sh OF HUMAN SOCIETY IN MY OPINION. I wanted to rate it 3 but my fat finger pressed 5 and can't even re rate it. Waiting online for solutions. (Just kidding.. I caaaaa..n manag.. Ge it somehow.i think)

Also why do author shy from giving the MC a harem. It's not like I harem but just that instead of coming up with braindead plot ya can just give us a dogblood romance. I think it is more bearable than the... more>> plot hole in my opinion. <<less

Hello! Translator here~

LOVE this story. It's thriller/psychological but it's actually really funny and has lots of humour and comedy!! Yes, there are some horror/gory parts too, but I personally ADORE horror haha so big win!

Basically, Xu Ziyue (MC) bound with a system upon death and started playing a world-hopping dating simulation game, where he can pick any of the NPCs to target and romance. However, he always inevitably picks the big BOSS lol.

IMPORTANT: ML is never a hostile ghost - he's usually just chilling in the scenarios minding his... more>> own business until XZY comes along and starts chasing ML due to his pretty face (XZY is a face-con LOL). ML IS NOT EVIL - he doesn't actively kill the other players; it's usually the other vengeful ghosts in the world who do that.

XZY really is in a dating simulation game.... he's just sharing a world with other players who are all genuinely in a horror survival game. Therefore, really bad things can and will happen to the other players haha but XZY has BOSS ML's protection and also protagonist halo lmao, so while he gets scared a little at times, he has no death flags. XZY does try to help other players survive when he can, but he's not some self-sacrificing idiot.

Final thing, it's the same ML in each world, though different scenarios.

Sun Mo - vengeful spirit in schoolyard setting, Auston - half water demon in luxury cruise setting, Mo - humanoid puppet in a puppet village, Gu Zhe - creator the of the secret chamber (which is the setting), Shen Ci - hospital director


HAPPY ENDING! They end up together! It is revealed in the last chapter how the ML is separated into all the worlds and what he really is

Data-stream ML, basically the essence of the horror game system. He grew curious about humans one day and created another sub-system --> Xu Ziyue's Love-Attack system. Has been observing and learning from XZY, fell in love.


All in all, I found this novel really amusing to read, and I love horror so I am super excited to bring this project to you! Thanks for joining me on this journey! <<less

Now, I don’t usually leave reviews this early but I’m pissed that someone rated this 1 star for no good reason. Even from just the first chapter, I feel that it’s goijg to be a funny and interesting story. Our MC thinks he’s in basically a dating sim and is all happy-go-lucky. Meanwhile, the other “players” around him are super serious and afraid. This kind of contrast, how is it not entertaining? Of course, with only one chapter out so far, I can’t speak about ML just yet. But, I’m... more>> looking forward to following this. Thank you Lone Wolf Translations for picking this up! <<less

The concept is fresh and interesting. MC is playing a love game while the other players are forced to play horror games. The events that occur in each game is fun to read, and the horror aspect is downplayed a bit (for me at least) due to the MC's game being about chasing the one he is attracted to.

... more>>

The story has ended! And it was completely different from what I'd expected. The system is the one in love with the MC, as in the entire system governing the concept of horror games. MC becomes data as well, and the two live happily ever after, being lovey dovey in the various copies the MC decides he wants to experience with his lover.

Personally, I was really hoping Austin would win because he was my favorite boss/arc, but the bosses were all an aspect of each other, and technically a part of the system, so I guess it works out in the end. The MC is loved~

My only wish is that I wanted to see more lovey dovey moments with the two in different copies in their data form.

I cannot stand how the MC is indirectly causing the death of the characters. It’s ok for him to be naive and s*upid for the plot and humor. But it’s revolting how his s*upidity causes the other characters to die while they are trying their best to survive. To describe the MC in Chinese novel lingo, he’s a pig teammate with lack of awareness for his surrounding and teammates.

This is the one flaw of the story that I can’t overlook. If this doesn’t bother you, go ahead and read. But... more>> for me, not my cup of tea. <<less

I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT I DIDN'T LEAVE A REVIEW SOONER. (I actually thought that I already did.)

This novel is very entertaining. I can't count how mant times I've re-read this novel. I also liked the fact that the MC is never really in harm's place.

Since his system is really different. (It's amusing to see how the other players are scrambling for their lives while our MC is really just: "I like your face. I really do. So I'll chase you.")

And every person that our MC chases is the... more>> very hidden boss. (LOL) The MC is really a 'face-s*ave' *laughs*

I really like the arcs and some of them are completely different from the others. The relationship between the MC and the ML are really funny and sweet.

Especially the ending part and the extras.

Spoiler about the extras:


The MC is with the ML and they're travelling to the 'game' world and acting as NPC's. The players figured out that if they stay close (curry favor) with the MC then they won't die. And those poor players are being abused with dog food (PDA) *laughs again*

MC's a bit too dense and illogical. The author writes too painfully, since MC could have very well just talked things through with the other players as early as when he realised he didn't have the manual. If not, at least stay away from them if you're not going to help, for goodness' sake, you're literally killing them. He even brings the BOSS ML with the group of players, which... definitely doesn't bode well, when they're trying to stay alive.

I'm not opposed to characters that indirectly kill others because they're... more>> s*upid. I just can't stand it when it's the MC (or ML, but that's not the case here), without it being a significant plot point, and preferably that they're repentant. But... there doesn't seem to be inherent value in this plot point since MC already realises the others are probably playing a horror game, and this MC just seems a bit too dumb and/or shameless (but definitely not too prideful) to repent for the deaths he caused in pursuit of ML when he'll find out in the future, so he probably won't have any emotional grievances that could create a plot point on their own.

(Completely unrelated to my review, but, ML, up to the point I've read to, seems to be taking advantage of MC to scare/kill the other players faster/better/more efficiently... or something. I don't know, I'm not a serial killing ghost in a game yet. Who knows if it's the programming or he's doing it consciously.)

tldr; Cannon fodder have feelings too, you know? At least if they're going to die, it shouldn't be because of the MC being s*upid for no good reason. Would rate 1.5 if I could, but I can't, so I'll be nice and round up instead. <<less

This book is so freaking good! So good that I couldn't wait for updates and mtl'd it like others, but I will probably re-read it after it is translated as well just because it is really freaking good. The mix of comedy, horror and romance in this novel was so well done. The characters are amazing as well, I never found anything I disliked about any of them and the world's for all of the characters was very entertaining! I am sad that the novel ends here??? Not sure as... more>> I can't find more chapters and it says it ends at 140, but the novel is obviously not finished? So sad because I want to keep reading! QAQ <<less

MTL'd the entire novel. I found the premise very interesting, and each of the "horror" world was unique. If I was one of the players in the surviving game, I would piss myself. But because the novel is in the perspective of the MC, who is playing a love game, it's quite lighthearted and fun.

... more>>

There are a total of 5 arcs. The ML is actually the same person.

The ML isn't quite exactly the Main System itself, but the data of the Main System.


I really enjoyed the novel (as much as I could with MTL), so I look forward to the translated version of this novel.

My fav was the Doll arc. The doll was just so cute and he freaking broke my heart at the end. But despite how all the arcs goes, it's HE at the end. The end is hilarious <<less

I thought this was 'completed'. LOL Trans-saaaan, you posted 'completed'. LOL

Anyway, I feel like it's really hard to get attached to any of the characters here. MC, for some reason, you would only get a gist of what he's feeling. Did he like ML? Like, did he really LIKE him, not only the face? I know that he cared for him, at least. So I feel sorry for ML coz MC was half-assed. LOL

MC explained it though, that he knew that he couldn't really have ML coz he's leaving so... more>> he wouldn't let himself get attached too much. But... sigh. I just wanted something solid, okay? Like FOD solid. I'm reading the 5th arc right now. The 3rd is my favorite btw. The Dolls. THE GODDARN DOLLS. crying. jpg

I don't know how many arcs this will have. For now, I'm giving this a 3-star. <<less

really good but still ongoing at the moment (they're up to c120 now).

the idea of players in the same place participating in two different games is something I haven't read before so for me, this is new idea and I'm loving it. Lots of room for humor and misunderstandings.

so far the doll one is the only one that's really creeped me out but that's because I find dolls disturbing on the best of days (i would always cry as a little kid when people gave me dolls; those empty staring... more>> eyes are scary). The idea of an entire town with nothing but dolls is horrible!! can't wait to read the rest! <<less

I love how the MC is enjoying his time playing a dating sim and capturing his man... while all the other players are trying to live through their horror/survival worlds. 😂✨✨

Looking forward to reading the next arcs. Is the a zombie or apocalyptic world in there? Haha

The MC only cares about beauty and flirting. No wonder he has a romance system while others have a survive horror system. In my opinion it is kinda funny how relax the MC is, doesn't face any danger due to his system.

He seems pretty unconcern about others, they aren't beauties. From his pov he isn't doing anything wrong, since people tend to shun or dislike him. He did try to persuade or warn people but it was up to them to listen. He isn't really responsible for them anyway at... more>> most their acquaintances. Would anyone really feel sad if someone you barely knew died? I wouldn't especially if they had a ugly attitude towards me. <<less

For the most part, this story is pretty funny. The MC, I didn't really like, he just didn't really have any deep feelings for the mls (ml). The last world bored the mess out of me and the ending didn't really make sense to me.

... more>>

MC meets up with the system (ML) and asks to go home with like a robot of the ML



and apparently the system was like nah fam you staying here, become data



and MC was just like okay then never mind about going home


I don't know, this story was funny and very very very s*upid. It's a nice light read and the idea is pretty great. The author just wasn't really able to flesh it out. The author got around a lot of problems with the MC going "I'm too s*upid to understand. Imma just ignore it." Which started out funny and then became pretty damn annoying. <<less

This was a really fun read, it could have been better if some of the plotholes were filled out and the story was better planned out (the author repeatedly notes that she had started the story for fun and didn't plan much). The blend of horror, comedy, and romance was very enjoyable, however. The third arc broke my heart into a million pieces, I haven't cried that hard in a long time.

One thing to note, for those who might not like this is (about the 1v1 nature of the book)... more>> :

although it is technically 1v1.i.e. ML is the same person throughout, it also isn't exactly like that. It feels more like each person was a different splintered personality with bits and pieces of some of the previous personalities mixed in, and only at the end are they all brought together. So it did feel a little harem-y especially in the last arc where spoiler spoiler spoiler all personalities existed as separate beings.


But having said that, still recommend if you like horror and BL. <<less

Unique premise where the MC is living in a dating sim romcom while the poor souls around him are stuck in a survival horror game. I don't why there's been so many excellent comedic horror BL novels released recently, but I'm grateful for it. Unlike those other BL novels where the horror is made funny and harmless through comedy, this novel manages to preserve both those separate horror aspects and comedic aspects quite well through Multiple POV. MC is a gem in that he's like a typical shounen fail!ladykiller, except... more>> BL-version. He's hilarious! ML seems to be part cold beauty and a teensy bit yandere, but their relationship so far is very cute. <<less

Super cute/ horror movie. MC automatically falls for the BIGGEST BOSS in every instance coz all bosses are so freaking beautiful/ handsome. Around 5 arcs and every arc does have an interesting backstory.

Highly recommended!

3.5/5. Rounded up because the Extra is cute, and 1st arc ML and Doll ML are especially adorable.

Cute story premise, MC plays a romance game with a slight horror feel, everybody else tries to survive in a play or die world.

Explainations are given for the MCs system + why the different MLs exist + why each ML likes the MC more and more.

... more>> Not much background information is given about the MC and ML, and the ending is kinda unsatisfying.

Pros: Cute Story, cute ML (s). Interesting premise.

Cons: Unsatisfying Ending, loose ends, countless questions left unanswered. The Extra answers some, but not all.

Ehhhh bits:


Could be considered 1v1? All of the MLs are part of the main system, but yet they're seperated? Until the end.

Loose ends, loose ends. What happened to the White Lotus?


MC: MC isn't those super smart, solving everything with intelligence and faceslapping type of MC. He readily admits that he isn't the smartest, and takes a bystander stance.

He doesn't try to help the other players survive the games, and doesn't try to help the NPCs win the game either.

MC really, really likes good looking people. Really, really likes. It's the premise of the whole story. Call him shallow, and he'll probably laugh and go, yeah.

Although he does say that once he's in a relationship (with a game round) he'll stay loyal and won't stray. His eyes might, but he won't.


The ML is... complicated.


There's technically only one ML? And he's the main system. The rest of the MLs are part of him, and in the end, the MC becomes data and spends the rest of their eternal data life together touring various worlds. But all the individual MLs from the different worlds are technically seperated from each other.


Personality wise, the MLs are controlling, I want you to stay with me, but I'll let you go because I love you and want to make you happy type.

Not too Yandere, but a little Yandere.

Although sometimes, they feel as if they're different MLs, but then again, that's the thing with world-hopping.

Side character (s?) :


Loose ends! So many loose ends it feels like a unraveled sweater.

What happened to White Lotus? The other Doll? His roommates in the last arc? Can they actually leave or is the system killing them all? Answers dammit.


All in all:

Would rec if you like horror style world hopping premises, or want to start reading horror style without it being too scary. <<less

After reading the first chapter, I’m excited! This is a refreshing concept in the plethora of transmigration yaoi novels. The MC’s straightforward personality is cute (I like a bold shou/uke) and stands out against the tension of his environment. I’m eager to see how this let’s him survive any chaos to come. I’d recommend this to any yaoi fan who enjoys a good tranmigration novel and who doesn’t mind a little bit of potential horror.
