What is the most important thing about rebirth before the apocalypse? Grain storage? No, it’s trying to find the most important person in the past life! Reject the so-called relatives who have evil intentions!

The abilities of the previous life have followed, and their golden fingers have suddenly become very big.

Mutant plants, farming space, enough to feed himself and that man!

Su Ruizhe took out a handful of cherries and chili peppers with a simple smile: “Honey, these ingredients, oh no landmines, you take them and throw them out when you meet a zombie! But don’t eat it!”

Zhan Yun: “…”

It's a nice and easy to read novel. The plot is mainly focused on the main couple and their teammates going through the apocalypse with the help of the MC's knowledge and their powerful abilities.

As of c87, they are focused on helping their base, saving people and getting stronger.

The romance is very light (established relationship but only a few kisses, ML is very protective) and there's a bit of childcare (a rescued child). MC's ability is interesting but hasn't been fully exploited yet, the inspiration from plants vs. Zombies is... more>> really fun though. I like the teammates and their other allies as well.

Though they do encounter bad people, there are a lot of nice people as well ; the army/soldiers are trying to help civilians, people the main characters helped are actually grateful, people in charge can be capable and trust others.. It's not just face slapping scenes ones after another for the sake of drama and I like it - I get tired of everyone backstabbing the main couple all the time. Of course, people are not saint and they won't hesitate to kill if needed. I'm glad some situation are actually resolved quickly as it's more realistic.

Overall, it's entertaining and nice enough. It feels very light-hearted despite the apocalypse setting though so if you're looking for something easy to read to pass the time, it's a good choice. <<less

Nothing to praise here (might return back after reading more, if I won't drop it).

Sometimes stories can be light, but it doesn't make up an excuse for boring stories:

  • No aim to the story, except for not letting MC to go through same fate. Which makes author sound silly because: 1. the primary aim was achieved by MC meeting ML early on and them teaming together; 2. logically there's no guarantee for safety in rl, but here is a plain novel so who cares;
  • I'm getting tired of fantasy type of apocalypse where it's atmosphere/weather connected, but at the same time not. If author will insist on MC/ML trying to solve the crisis I will throw a slipper at them, because they never clearly explained about it and just threw at least several types of getting infected;
  • MC and ML are plastic, all characters are like BG ghosts. Most of the time you forget that they're a team of several people, not to mention a kid and a kitten. There's basically little to no interraction between MC and ML, the "romance" non-existent. This basically follows a path as if someone played PUBG. Move from point A to point B, loot, return. What really irked me is how the first thing they ask after someone wakes up from fever is not the human-like "How are you feeling?", but "What is your ability?" and these are people they supposedly "care" about;
  • Judging by translation you can figure out author's writing style, I call this type of writing "a summer essay of a 5th grader", where many words keep on repeat in joint sentences, to fill the word count. You may keep descriptions to a minimum and still achieve something. Often time you don't understand the layout description and it also lacks logic. For example in latest I've read they came to save...800 people, like bi*ch how on earth can you write - confrontation is inevitable after that, that many people is like a small army, hard not to notice, not to mention that despite the military base they ambush having disorganized civilians in rule, but ppl are not one-type of action species, someone will rush to report to the upper echelon;
  • I understand this doesn't happen on Earth, but at least could apply some earth logic. Why I say it's not on Earth, in one of the chapters MC recalls the number of population left after being wiped out and said - 6 billion, it wasn't even one tenth of original number, which makes original into 60 billion and imagine that overpopulation on our planet *goosebumps*, which basically makes cyrrent population of the story into 60 billion. Imagine that number of people. At least streets would be first overcrowded, people would panic, first days would be a bloodbath with so many dead bodies which eventually would turn. But the story is so empty all the time. Next is I understand that MC/ML were waiting for the most dangerous period (blood rain) to pass before moving out, but being a policeman ZX doesn't know where the bases are located or the simple fact that the safest would be - ANTI AIR RAID BUNKERS. Sigh
Anyway, an empty story, the story leads nowhere so far and main characters don't do anything to care for them. Don't waste your time read something different.

This is a poorly made version of "The Reborn Otaku's Code of Practice for the Apocalypse"

It is a novel for people who love the "zombie apocalypse " trend or for people that are looking for some easy read to kill the boredom, if you are looking for yaoi this not for you, it has close to zero love interactions after the apocalypse begin.

... more>>

What made this novel so bad for me was the characters, the author wanted to make a OP team with a LOT of powers but he didn't want to develop the users, so what we had was 2D characters that are only interesting for their powers and didn't had any use beyond that, the worse of all was that the author was too lazy to give them a life of their on so what happened was that the team of more or less 9 people was ALWAYS TOGETHER but they didn't had a presence so they simply disapper in the background and only the MC and ML speak and you don't even know if they are or aren't with them, they only apper to use their powers and fade away, it's like they are puppets of the ML and don't have ANY opinion of their on, this was the most frustrating because some of them had a lot of potential that the author threw away just to make a team with every "cool" power that exists, the doctor for exemple didn't had much fight power because he was a water user so is only job was being in the car all the time doing nothing or perhaps he was doing company for the woman with the fog power that did nothing too watching the kid with a CAT who should have been at home but God forbid they do something without the MC and ML

Just imagine this story with plant Vs zombie element in with actual humans and BL.

MC and ML is loyal (in love) to each other. Though this is suppose to be yaoi I think it's more shounen AI because the s*x actually happens at the end.

This story actually resolve things very quickly so you might find this story is a bit fast paced. But it's an okay fast paced in my opinion.

I like that the group that is with the MC became a family of sort kinda like "Otaku Squad", and... more>> really this story has the "Otaku Squad" sort of feel to it.

I think the MC is the OP one and the hubby is more or less powerful but because he is a policeman he is really baddass.

Overall it is a sweet story it has some depiction of cruelty to add realism to the story.

If you are okay reading something that is fast paced I think you can give this story a try. It's a fun read plus I love the action and the personalities that the characters have. I enjoyed it a lot. <<less

A very cute story in the apocalypse. The MC and ML gain family members and they live a happy life. There is very little drama in this story, and any is quickly resolved. Also, fun Plants vs. Zombies trope.

No smut, but that adds to the heart warming feel of the story.

This novel has the Plants vs. Zombie concept.

I just had to read it hahaha. The MC is so meng and I like it whenever the ML is thinking about the MC.

They are both helping each other and their relationship is sweet. The ML is protective about the MC and he's always thinking our our dear MC's safety. ♡ (The MC can fight — well, he's overwhelming the zombies with cherrybombs HAHAHAHAHA)

I also like their team especially mini spoiler: the kid who has a cat. (●&Gt;v<●) so cute.

The novel was enjoyable to read. Well-paced. Not too many complications and it's generally smooth sailing for the MC, which is fine just a little too anti-climatic at the end. I wish the world was a little more interesting and the characters were more fleshed out. I would have liked to have seen more side stories of MC and ML, or side stories about the side characters, or maybe the state of the world as well. The skillset for the characters are pretty standard for a post-apocalytic zombie-infested world in... more>> a Chinese novel. There's very little lovey-dovey interactions between the MC and ML, so I would probably categorise this as shounen-ai and not yaoi though. Rating: 2.5/5 <<less

If you want a light easy-read novel about the apocalypse this is it. Fast romance, light action and as long as you can ignore the glaring plotholes then this is a relaxing read. No heavy dramas or angst on this one.

not a bad little zombie novel all in all though I find that the MCs behavior contradictory to his experience, which creates some dissonance. It's optimistic tone seems wrong and I thought the MC was a little too trusting for someone who'd been used and betrayed by his family and then tortured to death in the name of science. He should not be so altruistic as he's depicted here and should have more trouble trusting most people (where was the ML when he was sold to the research lab, tortured... more>> and killed the first time around? It's never explained why such a powerful abilities user didn't try to rescue him). Also none of the MC's secrets stay secrets for long and by the end


even the leaders of the base know all of his secrets except that he'd been reborn. But that's ok, since they are all good people, (even though they've only known them for three months when he tells them)


the author tries very hard to balance the horrible depictions of the dark side of human nature with the southern base and all its good leaders and honest, hardworking citizens, making the base out to be as close to an utopia as one can get in a zombie Apocalypse. It doesn't work for me. Someone else compared this to Reborn Otaku and in the depictions of the base and base life it's similar, but that story is slice of life and this one is mostly not, though it does seem like the author had no clear outline when they started writing and just meandered around before deciding to end it. <<less

It's nothing that special or unique, but it is still fairly entertaining. The story is more a narration of the events that happen and how characters react rather than following a specific character throughout the plot with insight on their feelings. The premise is the classic zombie apocalypse and ability users, and the MC has a farming space (except he's never farming!!! how does anything grow?? how do the animals live??? plot holes..... also they could just transport their own team using the space thus saving car usage) and an... more>> ability to weaponize plants.

There's not much of a relationship between MC and ML. It starts pretty quickly and after the apocalypse begins, there's no real development that we can see. <<less

A wholesome story that leaves you wanting for more. The story stopped at a nice place before it becomes to draggy... or something like that. The ending wraps everything up nicely although there are some concepts introduced that I feel would've great potential but since it's only a little over 100 chapters... I reaaalllyyy want to know what happened MOAARRR!!!~~~

It's a light read and not angst or vendetta driven. But don't worry the bad guys get their just desserts. If you're looking for a long protracted story with miles and miles of character development then this is not for you. What I do like about it is that the author ties things up nicely giving the reader a pleasant experience after you read through the end. And no, it's not yaoi it's shounen ai so don't go looking for stuff you're not supposed to see. There's a lot of... more>> fluff though. A light, enjoyable story. 😍 <<less

As far as other zombie apocalypse danmei goes, this is definitely one of the better ones. Not to say that this is perfect, but it's good and not too headache-enducing.

I think the most problematic thing for this story, and what most have a problem with, is the feasibility and logic in terms of numbers and world-building information. Things like population number and the amount of time needed for something to happen (like harvest times or research results) are extremely farfetched and illogical, to be honest, but when you get past... more>> those aspects and just suspend your disbelief, the story itself is pretty okay.

The story focuses on the perspective of MC and ML so if you're looking for heavy building of the other members of their newfound family or squad, you won't find it here. The MC is also not all-knowing or knowledgeable about the world, which I found to be a good relief from much too mary sue and gary tsu MCs. I like how it works well with his age, so his ignorance reflects that of his teen self, while also highlighting his sensibility and maturity from his previous life. The ML takes the lead most of the time, so you'll feel as if not everyone is getting their due acknowledgement, but it's not like any of their squad members are ambitious in the first place.

Romance is pretty light in this. I feel like the ML was too easily persuaded by MC's reveal, but then again, he was already attracted to him (just ignore how creepy being attracted to a teenager is lol). I might be heavily biased since established relationship romances are my thing, but I really liked how subtle everything was. So if you're looking for heavy heart flutters, set your expectations very low.

As for the plot, this one also isn't ambitious. They're not aiming to save the world or eradicate the virus. The ending may feel like it isn't exciting, but at the same time, it definitely wasn't too anticlimactic since the story's tone already hinted from the beginning that this isn't a save the world shounen-like action. I feel like the author could have put more detail in the epilogue and ending of the other characters especially our little bun and kitty, but at the very least, the ending gave an okay conclusion to the lives of the characters. <<less

This is a fun action/apocalypse/comedy/supernatural type of story that has a very small dash of BL in it. It's one of the ones where the MC has a space and plant powers, but it's unique in that it takes Plants VS Zombies very seriously--as in, literally, his ability is to weaponize plants specifically like in that game. The action is fun and keeps up the story's pace. Although there was some drama the MC experienced in the past, he doesn't go through much of it in this life. It's one... more>> of the more light-hearted apocalyptic series than one of the dramatic, darker ones. It's entertaining for an easy read. The writing is smooth and sassy, and the action is done fairly well.

The MC and his team are OP from the start with a massive personal space containing farmland and drinking water. Note that he doesn't actually seem to farm or harvest his fruits and veggies or even take care of his plants, which is a huge plot hole on its own. There are also many other plot holes regarding scientific explanations that are really... not as scientific as the author believes them to be. If it looks like a scientific explanation is happening, the readers should be prepared to turn off their brains for that paragraph. Things happen way too easily and conveniently for them, so there isn't that much suspense.

The author did an excellent job establishing the MC and ML’s characters early on. However, their depth and development since then has been miniscule. The other characters essentially exist as their powers and a single personality trait, and that's it, even if they've been in this series for dozens of chapters.

The setting could be fleshed out more, and the plot could be more detailed. Like I said before, there isn't much drama or depth, so this series kind of gives off a cheerful, fast-paced feeling rather than the despair of the end of the world. There are things that could clearly be improved, but it's still entertaining so far. It's peculiar that current chapters are about halfway through this series, and yet it feels like it's still at the beginning of the series. It'll be interesting to see how the author takes it from here. <<less

I do not have a very high standard in novels. As long as its satisfactory ill take it. Though the novel has a lot of flaws it works for me that likes fast paced stories and slice of life. Its not intense like dog blood novels.

If you like the reborn otaku's code yada yada. Then you will like this. But this has less romance compared to the other novel.

Want a plant vs zombie power in a BL novel? Well just read it.

This novel would be good if there's actual romance in them. I'm dissapointed with lack of lovey dovey action between main cp.

There's almost no character development, so it's kinda boring for me. But I would still read this to spent my time, because the story line was easy to understand and no heavy plot.

MC is child like appearance and cute. No excessive revenge.

ML leader type, a police and not too much serious.

I like the facing of the story especially the revelation of MC abilities but it seems lacking of faceslapping moments. MC plants abilities are lacking. Romance is nice with slight dog food. Childcare, petcare and filial son were included in here.

Must read and add to your library
