Lin Mu rescued a Samoyed.

Capable of eating, smiling, has a high IQ. Picks up anything you teach him quickly, a good helper around the house.

The only thing was that he doesn’t bark nor wag his tail.

Lin Mu took a ham sausage and coaxed for the thousandth time, “wag your tail, and this ham sausage is yours to eat.”

The Samoyed raised his eyes impatiently, and with a single shake of his tail, shook out nine.

Lin Mu: …… F*ck.

Afterwards, the fox that did not wish to reveal his name, Mr. Yan Xuanjing, said in an interview: “Now I regret, I deeply regret. At that time, I shouldn’t have pretended to be a dog to take advantage of him, shouldn’t have touched him, rubbed against him, eaten his food and slept in his bed. Now I have a home that I can’t return to and a wife I can’t sleep with, I regret, deeply regret.”

Binge-read this work, its both super fluffy and a bit sad. The characters are so adorable! Even though the romance-quotient in this work is not that big, the MC-ML pairing is adorable.

A cute and fluffy story with a fluffy fox that has nine fluffy tails! With comedy and sad bits throughout the story. The story is quite slice of life, with an ongoing mystery that eventually gets solved.

MC isn't the white lotus 'oh we should save everybody! Nobody gets hurt!' type, and has his own biases, thoughts and ideals. But this does mean that he's biased towards people he cares for, and can accept them doing kinda iffy things because he cares for them.

ML is cute!! Both in his fox form... more>> and his 'I'm trying my best, but all your hints are flying over my head.' manner. He does try to protect the MC, but not just shelter him, and instead helps in any way he can.

Side characters are wonderful, with their own mini-plots and characteristics.

Points to note:

  • Not very action/adventure based. Even though there's a conflict going on, it isn't the main focus of the story.
  • Sad bits here and there.
  • Quite a bit of the plots are based on Chinese myths/ideals.
  • Revenge and karma is a theme.
  • Different worlds, different ideals.
All in all:

  • 9/9 fluffy tails, overall very cute and sweet
  • No love triangles and dogblood dramas
  • good side characters, though lacking in female characters

Read this novel a while back before it got picked up... good story with depth~ lots of comedy on the surface, but definitely has angsty/sad undercurrents that were a little too much for me.

I'm currently only on Chapter 34, but I really like this story so far.

It's sweet and funny, and low on the drama side (but it's definitely not boring!). The ML is a good person who treats the MC well. All of the side characters are charming and likeable.

Fluffiness trumps all.

Light hearted romcom with quite a few tear jerking subplots. How the emotional entanglements were presented were meaningful and enjoyable.

Binged read and couldn't stop!

If you like Natsume, you would probably like this one.

A sweet slice-of-life story about a young graduate who had no idea of his lineage until he was assigned to the local government office filled with other "non-humans."

Our clueless MC stumbles on the world of the monsters, a very brutal and morally gray world, but through exploring his own unknown lineage, starts providing a small haven for the "weak little ones" in his home and garden.

The side characters all have their own goals and histories interconnected with the main action/plot, while... more>> the MC is more of an outside observer who helps regulate and record the happenings while exploring more about the world he's become a part of.

There's a lot of play on chinese mythology/feng shui in this one, with the concepts based on things like karma, building merits, battling resentful energy, and so on.

The author doesn't really explain any of these concepts, assuming that readers are familiar with their cause and effect, much like how many (badly written) generic western fantasy writers would not describe worldbuilding if it doesn't deviate from the typical castle, dragon, wizards.

Unfortunately, the translation doesn't help.

While I am grateful for the translators' hard work, too much of the translation is absolutely literal and makes the paragraphs difficult to understand.

Spoiler

Imagine this sentence: "X was feeling down about the ending."

Becomes translated to: "X was feeling south at the end."

Instead of translating "down" with the emotional meaning (synonyms being: unhappy, depressed, etc.), the translators would put a something like "south." Yes "south" is also a synonym of "down, " but in English, "south" has the connotation of "f*cked up, " like "things have gone south."

If you re-read the translated sentence 3 times, you might be able to piece together that it meant "X was feeling down" but it requires a lot of effort and attention. Not to mention, almost every paragraph has 2-3 mis-translations like this in every chapter of the story, and consider the chinese-mythology-based subject matter, things get even more confusing.

The readers definitely don't have the background to figure out what the characters really mean in-between foreign concepts like balancing karma, soul scattering, and metaphysical scales.

[collapse]

Nevertheless, if you're able to power through the translation, the story is a pretty enjoyable and fluffy ride. <<less

This story have their light and dark moments perfectly balanced. You will be appropriately saddened by certain points, and also chuckled due to certain happenings. Though it leaned more towards lightheartness and make you smile all the while.

All the characters, from MC and ML to the side characters have their own characteristics that able to differentiate from each other. Actually the side characters really livened up this series as they do most of the heavy lifring in the progression of the plot.

ML and MC relationship is slow but sweet. A... more>> breath of fresh air from all the other domineering gong and pitiful shou out there. <<less

I like this quite a bit!

Characters: 5/5

Focus is definitely not on MC, as strong character building is seen for many of the side characters. MC is pretty funny, not the super weak bottoms that I hate, and I really like ML. He's super powerful but NOT AT ALL arrogant and easily takes things in stride. He's not yandere at all, respects the MC and his relationships and wishes, and is always there to protect MC. Also, ML's thought process is super funny lmao.

... more>> Plot: 5/5

Great world-building, doesn't feel like there's any plotholes. It wasn't overly ambitious and covered a good amount of content for this novel size, so it didn't feel like it was dragging on either. I was pretty confused in the early chapters as they lay the foundations about the setting with monsters, but I skipped most of it and it didn't really make a difference in the end.

Writing & Translation: 5/5

Thanks for the translators' hard work! <<less

Good read! I enjoyed the overall story and the characters-- although for me the worldbuilding is a bit over the place. As for plot: while there were a lot of happenings/events kinda unrelated with each other, the overarching plot of ... more>>

kept it coherent. The characters were OK, no one too memorable or that stood out to me. I think what's most memorable to me for this novel is the humor-- the author has a great sense of comedy, I literally laughed out loud for some scenes. <<less

This book is one that’ll make you very happy after you’ve read it. It’s genuinely funny and although it doesn’t have a heavily complex plot it’s still nicely put.
I adore the characters!

This novel felt like it really meandered without a clear direction. The characters were somewhat interesting, but no character was truly explored too much aside from the MC. To be fair, the MC's relationship with his mother early on and his inner thoughts are imho the best explored and well written part of this novel. Aside from that it reads as very bland slice of life despite the fantastical setting. If you are here for fluff and romance, there's some fluff but romance not so much. Read this if you... more>> have nothing else to read, but like other comments have mentioned, some of the plot points aren't really explained and can be hard to understand for non Chinese readers. There is interesting world building and story elements. I just feel the pacing and execution were lacking. I dragged myself to finish the novel but it was only because I had nothing to read at this time and felt like I needed to finish it. I'm glad others have enjoyed it. It's just considering how highly rated it was, I figured it needed a review like this to counter balance the others.

TL:DR - If pacing, strong plot and a clear sense of purpose matter to you, this isn't the novel for you. If you don't mind a meandering read, meandering even by slice of life standards, feel free to enjoy the fluff. <<less

A light story. MC is sweet but not naive. ML is a very straight forward person who treats the MC very well.

The over-all tone of the story is comedic but there are a few sad/tragic undercurrents. These sad elements are actually quite heart-breaking but the author doesn't dwell on them too much. So the story remains fluffy.

The side characters are great. The cute ginseng baby, MC and ML's fathers and their interactions. The extras add a nice finish to the story.

The translation is excellent. The side notes are well explained... more>> and the translator's comments are funny. Good Job translator. Keep up the good work.

BTW, this is not yaoi. As earlgreyt mentioned, there are a lot of terms which are not explained. Readers who are familiar with the wuxia and xianxia genres will be fine. <<less

This one is very cute, full of fluff with a side angst too. But still light at heart.

I like the MC, he still have heart like human but not overly ask the monster to have the mindset as his.

I like the ML is so straight and blunt, he sincerely wanted to protect MC and not overly protective too. Like teaching him fly lol.

I love the side char too, each of them are so cute. Just hoping for more dog food from the main pair. But it also good like this.

It was cute and there was no third party involved in their relationship. This was a new bl theme with new monsters and human relationship.

All characters are cutee and I definitely love Nie Shen (you'll fall in love with him too)

The knly reason I gave this 4 star even though it cute and everything was because the ending was too sudden
