Number One Lazy Merchant of the Beast World


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

After transmigrating into a beast world, Rong Mingshi discovered that the people of this world experienced widespread mania. For example, when their emotions were abnormally agitated, they would become destructive beasts. If their emotions were abnormally low, they would shrink into their young beast form.

There is a type of energy stone that can cure this but it must be hand-carved into the animal form corresponding to the beastman. The more realistic the shape, the better the healing effect and the higher the repeated utilization rate.

In his previous life, Rong Mingshi’s ancestors started as craftsmen who grew their business and became wealthy.

Then a small store suddenly popped up on the Star Network, selling several small sculptures made with superb skill. The effect of the energy stone to soothe emotions could be felt through the screen and stirred up a sensation in the entire empire. However, this store owner was super lazy…

Super fluffy light novel!

It's a light and easy read, no major drama happens. No real super villains or huge conflicts happen. Everything gets resolved in the next few chapters easily. No love rivals to worry about. Just need to get that out there first, I know some people like heavy emotionally involved storylines but this novel is just an excuse for fluff and cuteness.

MC stays as a leopard cub for almost 85% of it. Actually, maybe 95% is more accurate. He doesn't fully manage to control his form until pretty... more>> much the night before his marriage, they also don't *ahem* until then too. It's all fade to black anyways, so there's nothing to see.

ML is undeniably OP. He's the strongest beastman in the empire, the absolute most respected marshal, savvy and rich businessman, etc, etc. But he's very sweet to MC and I dig that.

A lot of the novel focuses on carving stone... which I have to admit, I skipped. The carving process is more interesting to say, watch in a video than to read about so... if that stuff isn't your cup of tea you won't be missing anything by skipping ahead.


I do wish they explained why MC's beast nucleus is so much bigger than the entire populations or why he can only use the translucent stone and no other stone can work for him. And it sounded like his nucleus being in his brain was special... so does that mean everyone else's nucleus is situated elsewhere??? Also, what happens if he loses his stone, does he lose the ability to become human???

I really enjoyed this story, though I wouldn't say I intensely loved it. It was really fluffy and feel-good the entire way through, which is always something I support. But to be quite honest, in the beginning sometimes I was like what age was this story even written for, like 10 year olds? I'm not claiming that I didn't think that the big black dragon holding the little leopard wasn't the cutest thing I've read recently, but when the only action was the leopard making some carvings and getting enrolled... more>> in school over like 20 chapters, I was a little underwhelmed. Also, I suppose that it makes sense bc of the MC's lack of experience with life from his illness in the previous life and being abandoned in this life, but I sometimes got annoyed by him being naive and ignorant but still insisting on acting by himself without consulting the ML. The housekeeper and ML have to keep cleaning up after him bc of him acting on his own, unaware of the dangers from the duke. Also, I was like this guy is making these high quality carvings for the customers, but isn't carving any more high quality ones for the ML. I'm also confused about why he keeps insisting on buying ML stones when the ML probably has access to much better stones for his own carvings. I suppose that's a plot point for supporting the creation of the store though. I do like that the MC and ML are both very accepting and very natural in falling in love, and their relationship is adorable. The MC also gets much better as the story goes on and he gradually starts to learn more I guess? More drama comes later, but it gets quickly resolved by the very OP ML. Not that I'm complaining. Would have liked more extras without the amnesia and being in the beastman world, but I'm still quite satisfied. <<less

Especially Fluffy <3 <3 <3!!! Rating this 4.7

The plot doesn't have a lot of drama and critical twists. My kokoro was bursting the whole way~.

The romance was rather simple and straightforward.

The MC and ML were having the atmosphere of 'its-only-a-matter-of-time' regarding their romantic progress.


The MC was powerful but had faced a lot of challenges before he met the ML.

I like how he knows what he wants and does his best to get it~. He was really assertive, follows his heart in whatever he does and is very hardworking in improving his craft. I NEVER believed he was LAZY!!! And, he was really open with his love for the ML.


The ML was *cough.

He was more than OP by the time he met the MC. Due to this, the conflicts within the story were a breeze to handle. He, this beauty, is the MUSE of our MC. Lmao


Even though all the main characters may appear OP, I particularly liked how they were NOT nerfed just to create a ruse.

The side couples were too amazing~~~ really.

Daddy 1 and Daddy 0. I died on this.


The side characters (specifically the 18 'disciples') provided a lot to the comedy and I looo~ve them.

The little buns~~~~ aaaahhhhh!

You'll love how art-centered and fluffy this novel is so ONEGAI!!! Read it to the end!

Fun and light read. Not much dog blood conflict happens here and any conflict gets resolved without much effort (I might be wrong since I MTL'ed the whole thing). You would really enjoy how the merchant interacts with his clients. The side characters are fun to read. The principal and the 18 masters are my second favorite, following the bystanders and clients of the shop itself.

The description of the carvings are so vivid, I wish I had the skill to draw it from the description.

Rong Mingshi and Aojia developed their... more>> relationship through this whole story. Mingshi is allowed to do anything he wants while Aojia receives whatever is given to him graciously.


Rong Mingshi is a total black dragon obsessed cute leopard. You won't believe. The first time he got drunk, he carved purely black dragon depictions even on ordinary rocks of Aojia's master's home. Of course, Aojia took these carvings home and then asked for leopard-inspired carvings to complement the other carvings.

Aojia is low-key taking care of Rong Mingshi, not even telling him that he made him co-owner of his enterprise. Very much mutual love from the get-go. Still better than those stories where they met and instant bam, they are in love. Although it came pretty close to that.


Four stars out of five. More romance inclined than conflict based, slice of life kind of thing. <<less

Light read, but stupid. The storyline, which reminds you more of a faint outline than a decent story, fades somewhere on the BG. Why author cared about creating villains is beyond me, they were tossed out easily, they never posed any threat, everything is solved rather quickly, unticlimatic.

Most of the text is carving descriptions, pretty contrasting on their purpose, while the dragon carvings do a decent job to show the love of MC anything else sounds tedious.

Many authors who write interstellar better not touch the physics part. It's a lovely... more>> idea to to write about spaceships crossing galaxies in less time they crossed them usually just to see the loved ones. But better don't. It's belittling the intellectual capabilities of your readers. But let's pretend the fleet like that exists, let's be generous, that creates the army with a fleet practically invincible. What enemies ffs.

Next is the "monarchy" and "constitutional court" part that blew my mind. Author just pushes the legislation system (two of them) and that made the emperor look even dumber. Not to mention that the marshal never posed as a threat, only in emperor's mind, but if it's constitutional monarchy, means the threat to his power comes from the paper in the first place. Ugh, just messy. Why do I even care.

If you think it's cute, be my guest, but I find it rather bland, like a soup made from nothing but water :-/ <<less

so fluffy and full of meng 😍😍

this story will show the showdown between the ML and the butler-in-law 😂 for the MC.

so far the score is 3-0 and the butler had been "short circuiting" for almost everyday because of ml's "shameless" acts towards MC that he always have a standy by spare parts to exchange his ruined parts 🤣

i find it cute how MC was kind of jealous when he saw stone carvings of ml's beast form in their house, not knowing that he all made them when he was... more>> drunk (of course he still found them to be his work after observing the stone carvings) <<less

I read it using MTL, so some details is still blurry to me, but all I could say is this is full of fluff and cuteness. The Daddy Butler is specially cute!


He is so cute, like how he is acting when he thought ML is taking away his child, then later he figures that he need MC to have friends, but can't find a student in the academy that is in the same level as ML

Interesting premise that petered out into meaningless fluff that doesn't evoke any emotion from me besides boredom and annoyance because the characters haven't endeared themselves to me enough for me to enjoy their interactions.

ML is OP so no challenge poses any threat. They fall in love by what feels like the 10th chapter and MC is also the pure, innocent type that is supposed to be cute but just feels dumb. He's also supremely talented at carving so basically he's also OP as heck too. No challenge poses a threat,... more>> they never have any real enemies, and MC progresses so fast in carving that there's really no enjoyment in the weak-to-strong aspect of the novel.

Read on if you like seeing the main couple fall in love after the first 10 chapters and proceed to act all fluffy for the next 80 chapters without any build up or satisfaction from seeing them get together because it doesn't feel deserved. If you're like me and hate this sort of fluff without establishing why you should care about the couple, then you might as well skip this one. <<less

I like the plot... and the characters... the interractions too... but there's just too much carving/carving-related texts

Sure, it's great to see MC being op/genius carver and all, but I'm not here to read lines after paragraphs after chapters of carving process and MC's online shop

So yeah, 5 star minus 1 cause 60% of the story is word-padding carving details which we can do without

So far so good! I'm enjoying it and am itching for the next update (many thanks to the lovely translators!😭😘) It feels similar to how to raise your natural enemy (except this is a human who went through rebirth) and other fluff beast -> human novels. Rong Mingshi is talented so looking forward to seeing his business grow

Haha, the shop owner isn't really lazy, he's just too in-demand and knows his priorities. He cannot just easily let others do his job tho, his creations are really OP it's hard for others to reproduce it.

I like his OP-ness. He is not a powerful warrior nor a rare magician nor rich but his strength is in sculpting. Before transmigration... ... more>>

He never got the chance to sculpt since his sickness prevented him to work in long hours. It's regretful that he has enough talent to even be the craftsman family heir but I'm glad he was given 2nd chance when he transmigrated.


My only dissatisfaction is the end and the extra chaps. I wish the bonus earth mini series featured his original family and I kinda want to see his grandpa witnessing that his poor grandson is now cured and happy with life. But I guess that's just me and my dog blood loving self. <<less

There's a huge focus on carving (especially a particular type of creature). Even for obstacles, they don't typically last long, so this reads more like a bumpy fluffy story - the interactions between the MC and ML are awfully cute. However, there are some things that would have been interesting to expand on, but the story moves fast as it isn't that long. If you're looking for something simple and fluffy, then this is a good story to pick up. Kudos to the translator too. There are a few mistakes... more>> but overall well done. Plus the site is easy to navigate. <<less

Maybe for some people this story lack of plot but for easy read and on the fluff side, this one is really nice. If you are searching for dog blood, dont read this one but if you searching for fluff, this one is good.

It's so D*MN CUTE!! 🥰

I feel all warm and fuzzy after reading. What will you get if you read this story? Good question!

Fluffy cute snow leopard cub!


He's actually older but due to a defect his body doesn't form correctly.


Over protective dragon!

Their adorkable interactions!


These two are obsessed with each other... and its awesomeness!


There are some plots in the background, but they don't provide much tension so if you like light hearted storytelling, this is the sh*t!

Amazing! It's full of fluff and, like another reviewer pointed out, doesn't have much dog blood scenes. The MC and ML are really, really cute and it's such an interesting career, to be a carver. I love it and hope that future readers will love it too!

4.5 for me but really fluff so I gave it a 5.

There isn't much drama and conflict. It mostly focused on MC carving his stones. MC and ML's interactions are really sweet and fluff.

Aside from the vivid description of the carvings, things aren't exactly detailed

... more>>

Like when he tried to teach or impart his knowledge about carving, the narrative just goes, they see MC carving and suddenly felt they understood something.


The near ending was seriously rushed though that a lot of loopholes were created.

The slow building up of his potential from the start, but then suddenly, towards the end, he just needs to drink wine and everything's solved. Or that peace treaty/ impending war with the Zergs was resolved so easily with a few of the ML's words. Or that motivation of the MC to earn money, by the end he was squandering his savings on a drunken online shopping spree and then (to solve that issue) turns out he co-owns the mining planet. There's a few more but just go read it yourselves.


Translation is super awesome and its MTL friendly if you're a bit impatient like me.

Recommended for light reading. All fluff. Just ignore the loopholes. <<less

This novel is cute!! Love then part where ML was teaching MC how to speak!!

However they go into too much detail when MC is carving the stones that it gets somewhat boring.

This is a super cute fluffy work glad it is being translated so other people can enjoy. The interactions of MC and ML is so funny and sweet. I love how obsessed he is in carving ML animal form all the time especially when he gets drunk. The author earlier works are very rushed and I like how in this one she did the pacing better. Overall really good read.

The story was so - so. Full of fluff.
The thing I like from this novel that the ML never restrict MC movement, some novel the ML will stop MC from showing their talent/OPnest, some don't want their MC to do dangerous stuff because 'afraid MC will get hurt' bla bla bla, but this novel, no, the ML let MC do what he want, and just protect him from the shadow if any problem appeared.
The ending for me kinda fast, some fighting then suddenly bam! Decide to get marry... more>> the next day, the bom! Here's come the children and then wham! The end.
I guess the writer lazy to continue the story and want to end it at fast as he could.
Read it when you don't have anything to read, just don't expect some adventure/world building here, story mainly focus on the interaction/romance of MC & ML. <<less
