I can't even say some words that can describe what I feel and like about this novel.

But, I can say for whoever like zombie-reborn world genre, welcome to this novel.

The story line is more focused how to survive from the zombie, cultivated power and family-friend relationship. The romance is not too slow or too fast, but perfect and we can see the chemistry MC and ML build together in every chapter.

I love this so much even I memorize the day of the updated newly chapter lol

I always love zombie stories.

That's Thy I also love this one.

Even though the main focus of this story is the romance of the protagonist, I love the zombies that just keep on coming.

... more>> But it's a little bit lacking in the tension department but It doesnt ruin the story for me.

I also love where you and also the zombies now suddenly have awakened powers and evolve to get stronger and beat each other up and its a very interesting concept.

In conclusion, the plot was okay and the interactions with the other characters were a little bit lacking as they seem a bit flat.

But it is also a fun read if you like zombies, bl, family bonding and quirky protagonist. <<less

Once I read the first few chapters of this by polarbearadise, I found the Chinese raws, and started MTLing -- and I couldn't stop for a week, despite there being 376 chapters. It's THAT amazing. The story, in a way, reads in a similar style to 'Rebirth of MC', but the ending is one of the best danmei endings I've ever read.

The MC and ML don't fall in love right away, given their circumstance described in the first chapter, but the romance develops gradually. There's a lot of focus on... more>> worldbuilding and plot related to abilities of various characters, and the 'villains' aren't flat, 2d characters but people with motivations and tragedies in their lives. Also, once the MC and ML fall in love with each other, they are ultra fluffy!


The MC also later has a baby from ML's 'red bead'. Also, towards the end, Zhàn Běitiān (ML) finds a way to turn Mù Yīfān (MC) back to a human with a vaccine. Unfortunately, it brought about a reoccurrence of his bone cancer, so Mù Yīfān ended up dying shortly after their marriage.

After Mù Yīfān's death in the story world, he returns to his 'real world', but Zhàn Běitiān--with his spatial abilities--finds a way to cultivate and cross the worlds to Mù Yīfān's real world. He ends up being 'reborn' without his alternate world memories in the original Zhàn Běitiān. Later on, after protecting Mù Yīfān from a car, Zhàn Běitiān ends up in a coma where he gets his memories back. There's a bit of drama with the MC thinking his sister and Zhàn Běitiān were engaged, but it turned out to be a fake engagement. It turned out that the original Zhàn Běitiān and the story Zhàn Běitiān were the same, and both loved the MC. The MC actually subconsciously also always admired/loved the ML, but never fully realized it until entering the story world, due to their past rivalry. Zhàn Běitiān helps the MC avoid any drama by paving the way for their families to accept each other. The ending is super, super sweet and romantic.

Also, I didn't summarize the 'ending' in the story world since the fighting and plotting is pretty large-scale, and it would take many paragraphs to describe. Just trust that it's very awesome.


I hope the translator sticks with this all the way to the end, since the ending is mindbogglingly good. There's a lot of characters, and they're very well written as well. I half predicted what would happen, but the other half I totally didn't expect. :D The story is pretty epic and totally worth your time. <<less

I MTL-ed this novel all the way to the end, and it was so worth it. Mu Yifan has got to be one of my most favorite MCs in all of the danmeis that I have read so far. I grew to like him very early on because he is very funny. Sometimes, he would stop in the middle of a battle and make some hilarious comments, and I couldn't stop laughing. But not only that, he is a badass, who is on equal standing with the ML.

... more>>

He can copy abilities (kind of like Kise from Kuroko no Basket) as long as he touches the person. I believe he can keep a maximum of four at a time, but uses them in pretty interesting ways. Eventually, he becomes a zombie king (the novel!MYF also becomes the zombie king, and they were both surprised that there were two in existence), allowing him to control all zombies regardless of their level.


The romance is gradual, but once it hits, it's everywhere. Mu Yifan really knows how to flirt, and it's both adorable and sexy. A lot of the characters constantly eat dog food.


One time, he went out on a mission to get a gold gun for ML's grandfather but took a detour to go to a s*x store. He loaded his bags with a bunch of condoms, lube, toys, videos, etc. He got caught red-handed by ML's team, and their reaction was, "We went out to search for supplies while you went out to find condoms!" Mu Yifan was really eager to use those condoms when he went home. Unfortunately, the ML had to go somewhere, so Mu Yifan blew balloons out of the condoms and left messages in them for the ML to see once he came back.

They have a lot of sexy times in ML's space since time flows differently there, allowing them to spend more time with each other. During their first time, I think, ML placed tape on Mu Yifan's mouth to kiss him in order to avoid spreading the zombie virus. Outside, they kiss each other on the face a lot.


Most of the novel is spent on world- and character-building, which were done really well. Some characters, which seem bad in their first appearance, have very pitiful backstories, especially novel!MYF.


There's another character who is a friend of Mu Yifan, both in real life and in the novel, who became a zombie when Mu Yifan accidentally scratched him. At the time, he was not able to control the zombie virus within his body, and this small scratch caused the friend to turn into a zombie. The friend lost consciousness and ate his mother and father in addition to another friend's mother, who worked for the former.


All of these characters have a role in the story. The author did really well in making them come to life.

The novel made me feel a whole bunch of emotions, especially the ending. Oh my god, I literally bawled my eyes out.


So after novel!MYF was defeated, everyone spent their times developing their newly inhabited city. One of ML's friends, who is a doctor, did a lot of research to create an antidote for those who became zombies. It was successful, but Mu Yifan's recovery took much longer because he was a zombie king. During the time when he was in the hospital, ML was doing other things, such as planning their wedding. They were so happy that they actually forgot that Mu Yifan had bone cancer. As a zombie, the cancer merely halted. In addition to this, during the final battle, Mu Yifan lost some limbs, which regenerated, and the affected leg returned back to its original, normal appearance. During their wedding, he felt pain in that leg and eventually fainted because of the intensity. ML's doctor friend stated that Mu Yifan could not live for much longer because he entered the last stage of cancer. What was extremely sad was that every time Mu Yifan went to sleep, the ML was anxious over the fact that he may have died. They spent their last days together traveling around. When Mu Yifan died, ML cried a lot. He would bring his lover's corpse to watch the sunset together.


Do not worry, it is a happy ending. Someone else already discussed what happens afterward in earlier reviews.

Overall, I would highly recommend this novel. I personally enjoyed it a lot, and I hope new readers will too. <<less

5 Stars for Apocalypse 'Danmei' Novel. Why dont you try to read this one? >.<

MC and ML really likeable, so sweet, enemy at first, PDA later... Its funny to see MC acting cute to ML at the time of his pregnancy -Actually MC didnt know that he got pregnant, more like hes in denial-

Baby Mu why r u so adorable? *come give me a kiss and hug* A bout the villain... The 'Real' Zombie King (Mu Yifan in the novel) did not die, he was reborn like our ML with different body.


About the plot, you dont have to worry. it'll gave you satisfying plot, misteries and a surprise, especially around MC and ML. <<less

Before anything else I want to specifically tell you that this is my very FIRST time writing a review to a novel here in novelupdates, considering how lazy I am I actually wrote one. I've probably encountered 80-90% of the BL novels available in this site but among the stories I've finished and enjoyed reading, it's only now that I truly felt like giving a review. Sure, I did wrote some comments here and there but never had I made a review. This only shows how much I am so... more>> "INTO" with this novel. So believe me when I say that this novel is something special.

I'm not sure how to explain it, It's just that the story is SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL. Everything you would want from a BL novel is already here, it really is a complete package-- romance, drama, suspense, rebirth, transmigration, comedy-- Oh my, I don't even remember how many times I rolled on my bed, laughing until my stomach hurts. You'll definitely love the MC's humor, the guy is totally amusing. The story is really funny. It's also sad at the same time, I did cry a few times.

The romance isn't rushed nor forced. MC and ML's relationship were well cultivated and well developed. It also does not solely focus on romance alone but world and character building. The story has a solid plot and each character is as important as the others. They are all unique and interesting on their own way, they will make you laugh, mad, bitter, anxious, sad, depress, happy, and sometimes cry. You can also feel their struggles and pain. Their choices may either be rational or not but everyone has motivation and reason for choosing their path.

Bottom Line: IT'S A MUST READ! I'm totally blown with the story and concept! It's beautifully done and the characters aren't trashy but fairly realistic! It's 300+ chapters but trust me, there are no bore nor dull moments! It's truly satisfying! <<less

I just finished reading this novel and my eyes are still red from crying. Well, so much for that. I really just want to say that this is one of my favorite novels where the ending is very satisfying and everything is in details. The plot is very unique that I really didn't think of that kind of ending coming. I love how the MC and ML got together. How their love became such a tightly bound feeling that helped them solve every single obstacle that they were facing. It... more>> is just so amazing to be able to read something so fantastic.

Not going to rate this because I feel bad to be the only one at the moment who kinda disliked the novel.

The novel is very unique and I enjoyed it until it starts to develop the main plot.

The novel has a bit too much plot twist for my taste and all the hanging loose ends kinda makes me nervous like man, don't you wanna settle that first before you go to another one?

... more>>

Like :

  1. What happened to the dude who ate his parents?
  2. bit*h RX is running around eating kids, you sure you don't want to find her first?
  3. ZK MYF is kinda childish weird for someone who is a ZK. A bit too concerned for his old reputation.
  4. ZK MYF is a bit too OP, well MC MYF is OP too but he's the protagonist ah so it's okay :P
  5. When will the story talk about JM's side?

So many people is waiting for their part of story to develop. And sometimes the joke part came in too randomly. Do people really joked with people who is aiming for their live? Somehow so Gintama-ish.


This is how I felt when I reached chapter 213 and I suddenly realised I don't want to continue anymore. I read other people's review and saw the HE part. It sounds nice, just too bad I can't last that long to see the ending _ (;3/ <<less

Beautiful. This novel is just beautiful, unlike other novels the characters doesn’t fall in love right away, it wasn’t slow either which was a blessing. The way mu yifan and zhan beitian show their love for each other is so sweet that half of the time I just kept on smiling like idiot and the ending of the story mode is so bittersweet. This story is also not very predictable while there are some cliche abilities like space magic. Or magical spring water. But it’s the way the author use... more>> these cliche theme and create a complete different scene. When beitian offer some spring water to yifan, yifan actually don’t want because it would expose his identity of being a zombie. The space magic also wasn’t mention much and wasn’t overly exaggerated like some novels. For the first time in a while I’m actually very satisfied with a novel’s ending even though usually I’m very picky. I was literally bawling my tears out and my eyes are red as I’m typing this review. Also had to waste a dozen of tissue. I’m lazy as hell too this is actually my first ever review on this website (maybe) so that says something about this novel that motivates me who is known for being a sloth, to write a review. <<less

This is pretty good, I love silly protags. I would recommend "A Guide to Raising Your Natural Enemy" for similar humor.

The "I'm not pregnant!" joke took a little two long I feel. I wanted it done by chapter



but instead it took until


Chapter 90


A Guide to Raising Your Natural Enemy did that joke better--"Its a tumor VS Its gas"

A must read zombie novel that includes multiple rebirths and almighty-knoweth-all-novel-god!
I've read this novel at least 3, maybe 4 times in the span of 8 months....

So much fluff! Progressive relationship that is so sweet and even cheesy at times! Plus, the best part, our shou/uke MC is very assertive and attacks our beloved ML for tons of *ahem* time! I honestly prefer it when the shou/uke is more assertive in the relationship and takes more initiative than just the usual giving into the ML.

There are also plenty of funny... more>> moments that burst in the middle of very serious moments, but just at the right time too! The face slapping, scheming, and the author's subtle dropping of major plot point hints that hit you by surprise is absolutely genius! The characters are all consistent with their true self and their actions don't ever feel random. Plot points that appear in the beginning will sneak back up later on you. This novel drops plot twists and omg moments all over the place but they never feel strange!

This novel definitely follows the golden rule: "once is chance, twice is coincidence, third time is a pattern!" And then we all feel like the Scooby Gang or Sherlock Holmes at the end of the day! XD

I honestly don't have any major complaints except I wish the *ahem* moments were faded to black or summarized... My only complaint!

Oh, another reason you should read this novel is because the fight scenes are really EPIC!!!! There are car chases, 1v1, 1vgroup, an entire war, and the final showdown is absolutely perfect! (I'm honestly jumping up and down in excitement right now really trying to keep myself from spoiling anything) ! Also, the fight scenes don't just focus on the MC and ML fighting! And the "grunts" have names!!

I just love this novel! Read it and find out why!!

God Speed Readers!!!! <<less

If you want spoilers I'll give them to you!!
... more>>

I finished reading this novel three times, and will read it a fourth time in a week or so (it's just that good!!)

I feel sorry for those who wait for English translation but let me reassure you the wait will be well worth it, in the end.

This book definitely has some tear jerkers near the ending part.

I remember the first chapter they actually did the deed, when baby was born, their first kiss, their marriage proposal, and everything else, so again if you want spoilers I'll give you. ;)
That being said, the novel was the best. I've never read a zombie apocalypse novel in English or Chinese, that dealt with even hetero relationships. I didn't expect much out of this novel, but the author did a good job of not just character development but world development. Instead of revolving the story around just the characters romances they included how the world changed, the challenges of living in this world, and the medical advancements. It is indeed a piece that everyone should read if interested. The whole book isn't just about their romance so there are some parts in which you won't see Beibei and Yifan being lovey dovey, there will be parts where you wonder about where the heck Qingtian is, because he's their son why doesn't the author talk about him as often? But alas it will all make sense as you turn the page.


Happy reading everyone. <<less

So far, I am loving this novel. Even when I am reading through MTL, I can see that the story is pretty good. It's the complete package. #Power couple, nice twist, good fighting scenes, well-planned universe and the way it was related won't make you bored. It may be only shounen-ai but it's ok so as not to distract away from the gripping story. I am looking forward the day the scanlation team do more. I am sure to re-read it.

... more>>

BTW, among the LNs I've read so far, this has the most romantic proposal I'd ever seen. I'm doing my best not to scream when ML took MC out of the window and made some ice road or something at the sky to propose. It was well described I could imagine the scene.


#sweet #PDA romance - For me, the balance between action, romance and sci-fi fantasy is pretty good. I can DEFINITELY feel the love between them and it added to it's epicness. Gong is very showy of his feelings. He ain't the usual stoic, hard to figure out gong but you can feel it in your bones how the uke is the biggest love of his life.

#mpreg #gender issues - I like how in this story the kid calls both parents are addressed as father. The story is straightforward when it comes to calling gays and gay couple usage of terms. There is no pseudo-female treatment. Quite a rarity in asian manga/webnovel I am asked.

#family stuff - it's my favourite part. I like the progress the couple made to make both their families accept them as a couple. They did not live in secret or fear, they wanted to show people that they wanted to be a family and be treated as a family.

#MTL: Finished, Oct 29. What an epic ending. I teared up around the ending of the second to the last arc but it was soothed by a good ending. I cannot ask for more. The whole plot is solid. It may be impossible for me to judge the writing style skills of the creator since I don't know a single thing about chinese but the whole pacing is undeniably good. <<less

Actually brought me to tears LMAO I absolutely love this couple's dynamics! Mu Yifan's personality is not all dead... though sometimes I think he's a little too OP but eh, overlook that and you'd realise that the novels plot is actually pretty interesting and hooks you in. Took me 5 days to finish reading and that's because I binged it.

One of the best danmei bl novel i've read. I love the MC, the ML, the plot, the supporting characters, everything. Not one bit did I regret MTL-ing this all the way to the end. I love the sweetness between the MC and ML. Everything was beautiful that I wish the author could write some extras after the novel. It's one of the novels that I would love to re-read again in the future.

MC transmigrated into the novel he wrote about the end of the world where he became the zombie king near the ending, but he was on the side of humans, helping them fight against the other zombie king. He interacts with his family and ML's family, and companions, really bringing life to the novel. The highlight of this novel is definitely the love between MC and ML, it's fulfilling and heartfelt.
