Pleasing Start-Over


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

Qiao Chen was mysteriously transmigrated to the interstellar era. As an adult from his original world, he was forced to grow up all over again in this new one. Now, out of nowhere, he was requested (forced to take on) with the inexplicable task of jumping from world to world to save the high general’s soul.

Throughout his journey, Qiao Chen finds that these worlds and bodies he’s jumping in and out of are his previous reincarnations. Whether or not these all culminate into coincidences or a predetermined destiny, there’s things that must be done while completing the main task:

-Avenge his past life

-Take revenge

-Fulfill past regrets

-Realize those lost dreams

-Make up for past failures

Since God has given him these opportunities to rewrite his fate, why wouldn’t he be pleased to start-over?

It's definitely one of my favorite QT novels. The MC is OP but in a very reasonable way because
... more>>

firstly he is transmigating to find the ML's soul with military help using advance technology meant to make it easy.


Some other comments saying that the MC being too OP is bland and what not just don't understand the main plot of the story.

Another thing to highlight is that the SECOND ARC IS GOLD.


Just finished the mtl and I can say that it was indeed a quick ride.

The ending left me with the feeling of satisfaction by imagining of what's to come in their future lives. Very sweet, just the way I like it. <<less

Wow. Just, super bland. MC has OP powers that render any strategizing unnecessary. Neither MC nor ML have any personality. There's at least 15 QT stories better than this one out there.

First off, I’ve read and enjoyed several stories of this genre (Quickly Wear Face of the Devil, The Reader and Protagonist Have to be in True Love, and etc...) and have even re-read a few of them because I’m such a fan. However, this story might have the major elements of those stories but none of the heart which makes those stories great. In fact, there are several aspects of this story that are ethically problematic and made me uncomfortable:

  • Dubious sexual consent
  • MC has OP god-like powers which he uses to tamper with people’s subconscious minds to manipulate them
As a fan of the genre I am still willing to overlook these two points, but frankly, I don’t like the MC or ML enough to do so. These two points occur almost... more>> immediately at the start of the story and the character are described like cartoonish stereotypes rather than believable people.

Wish the translator/s luck with this one, but it is a definite miss for me. <<less

I already read this until finish with MTL. I don't know if it's only me or the story really similar to Quickly wear the face of the devil (FOD) ? Even some of the ML name in the story is same e.g: Du Zinan, Wei Zennan. Moreover the plot is similar too (in FOD, the MC mission is to destroy a supercomputer and save ML who is only a program. In here it's to save ML soul).

But, in the end I still like a story plot like this, so I'll... more>> be happy as long as it's a good story and this story also has it's own traits. <<less

One of my favorite stories with transmigrating into many different world.

This story is very satisfying and sets up each world very well. You would feel indignant with the treatment of the original characters and a major sense of satisfaction when the MC takes revenge on the people that wronged them. The characterisation is very solid and consistent. Love the interaction between the MC and ML and their relationship. The ML also has easily identifiable traits that he carries through the different worlds so you KNOW that it's the same person... more>> whereas some other stories that I have read where the ML are supposedly one person but you really don't see it.

The plot also doesn't fall behind and there are many different ways that the smart MC plans his revenge. There are many worlds and relatively short for each world so the pacing is nicely done. I usually don't find myself getting bored.

All in all, it is a wonderful read, one of my favorites and would definitely recommend it to others, especially if you like these types of stories where the MC goes to different worlds and take revenge like QWTFD and such. <<less

I was hesitating giving this novel a shot after reading all the 1-2 star reviews but, alas, the 5 star reviews gave me hope. That hope gradually evaporated as I read. Now, initially my impression of the novel was very neutral - that changed as soon as the ML was introduced. The speed in which their relationship progressed isn't just unrealistic, it's painfully unrealistic. To the point where you'd think the MC fed him a love potion or something, it's just that crazy. The ML is supposed be this ultra... more>> handsome, dream guy who has all sorts of women and men alike pursuing him but one look at MC and it's "let me help you win the inheritance battle?".

They exchanged maybe five-ten sentences tops before he sleeps with the MC, and the MC who - allegedly - hasn't slept with anyone before just passively accepts it? Sorry but were either of you supposed to be hard to get?


Now, honestly, I'm not that hard to please. Things don't need to be completely realistic for me to be content, and honestly I didn't harbor such expectations to begin with! But please, so help me god, let there be SOME character development. I don't think characters can get much more two-dimensional than this. Not a single character here isn't a walking stereotype, it's like everyone - with the exception of maybe the MC - are just cardboard cutouts.

World-hopping revenge type stories are usually pretty two-dimensional but this one really takes the cake. <<less

The novel started strangely but I am sure that it will have a meaning in the end. The MC is geat and the ML is awesome ? A overbearing perv ? Well you cant be sure until you check the system's options, right ?!

Great read ! Great translation !

(Next day: I just ended the novel and I already miss it ! The MC and ML interactions were really great ! But it's a shame that the ending was too defintive and the novel too short ! 103 chapters... more>> = not enough ! I will start another novel from the same author: Cannon Fodder Cheat System). <<less

Firstly and most importantly I don't like the ML and MC. Probably the novel too!

I read a sh*t ton of BL novels so I kinda find what's cliche and what's new and interesting.

... more>>

The MC arrives for a mission and ML took an interest in him (kinda cliche but okay this is common)

ML took MC to his mansion against his will but MC reluctantly agrees cause he needs the damn ML for the mission!

ML tries to have s*x with MC and MC still reluctantly agrees

and the s*x isn't even at the end of the arc or the middle the arc. IT'S LITERALLY RIGHT AT THE STARTING CHAPTERS

and unsurprisingly MC started to have some sort of feelings for the ML cause he felt it's good to have someone to look after you or standing up for you or some shit. AND THAT'S ONE THE VERY NEXT CHAPTER! (/‵Д′) /~ ╧╧
you're THAT easy huh dear MC..


But I'm appreciating the translator for their work. Keep up the good work Translator-san! Hope you take more works in the future ^-^ <<less

A lot of face slapping.

A lot of romantic scenes.

Good plot-line.

And it's episodic.

Doesn't leave you hanging when you want more excitement. (Revenge/ romance scenes)

Absolutely a wonderful read! Extremely OP MC and ML, breezing through the worlds and face-slapping all those that had harmed them.

So it might be boring if you don't like stories where the MC doesn't face challenges and is majorly OP, but will be a fun and engrossing read if you do like sheer gratifying faceslapping of the scummiest of scum.

Mainly the faceslapping is really carthathic, getting to see all those that had harmed MC get their comeuppance. It's especially gratifying knowing that the worlds are MC's past lives and not... more>> just random worlds. The antagonists are normally pretty straightforwardly scummy though.

And in arc 2 there's a character that I don't really agree with how the author views and shows them, that just because life had dealt them a bad hand that they were then absolved of the hurt they caused MC. Like what? That's not how that works, just because they were hurt by someone else so they should be forgiven and understood for hurting others??? JUST NO.

MC and ML are extremely lovey-dovey, and get together really fast. Although the sheer speed of getting together in arc 1 is kind of explained after the arc, so I'm happy there's that. <<less

Typical quick transmigration. I do like the spin they have in which the MC is going into these different worlds to retrieve the General's soul, so there isn't a "system" character, just an OP cheat (very VERY OP). However, like all, the romance aspect is really quick on the uptake. This is really great while you're on the Quick Transmigration BL binge. The arcs are fast paced so nothing is super drawn out, the interactions between MC and ML are fluffy, but because of the fast pacing, there are things... more>> that aren't explained or could've been done better. But overall, a very enjoyable light read.

Warning: There is a second page on the chapters, so make sure you flip to the second page to finish the chapter. Took me a few chapters before I realized why the transitions between chapters didn't make sense haha. <<less

I love this novel. I like how through over world it is the MC’s original body of previous life and not a stranger’s body. This is something that I have not read in other novels. I so this novel a couple of time while browsing for new novels to read but thought it was not really good however as I started to read it a few days ago I was amazed and in love with this novel. I wonder why I didn’t read this novel sooner. BTW I finish up... more>> to the current update chapter 32 and mtl to chap 39. I couldn’t wait for next update. 🤗😊😊🤗😄😍😍 <<less

Even though the MC is very very OP surprisingly I really enjoyed reading the novel ! Its a no nonsense kind of novel. The plot is fast paced and the face slapping starts happening quiet quickly.

But even after the flaws I really enjoyed reading it !

The translation is good for MTL. The language is a bit stiff probably the original was also the same. Overall satisfactory translation.

This is a good fast wear to mtl and its pretty easy to understand. It is kinda formulaic but its worth it. Usual tropes and worlds but the couple is pretty solid and the love is ok. Its a cup of hot chocolate on a winter night not a shot of whisky.

Love this. Big similarities to FOD, making it more like a sort of spin-off type of FOD, not that I'm complaining. I was really excited to read this, mostly since I've already read FOD a couple times and remember all the plot, so it doesn't make much sense for me to keep re-reading FOD. But with this story, I can read more worlds, which were sometimes pretty interesting and different from what I remember from FOD.

MC and ML are pretty damn similar to the ones in FOD, which is very... more>> satisfying. Their romance is still as cute and adorable as ever, and the background in IRL is much more straightforward than in FOD, so that's also nice. The only thing is that in all the worlds is the ML is always involved in some way with the military, so some more variety in that aspect would have been nice. Though I guess the MC also inclines towards doctoring/healing.

Overall, a pretty short and straightforward read. I do wish the arcs could have been more detailed, and had more arcs, esp with some more slice of life details. The story is pitiful with their "after that, they lived until they were # years old and died together" arc endings. But overall, really really love this. <<less

I suspect author periodically smokes and gets stoned. About this later.

Started this after the other novel - Cannon Fodder Cheat System. And if you read both, you can see that they are 1) very similar; 2) one is like the draft of the other (CFCS written later), but not without individuality.

I rated this with 3, 5 stars for one simple reason, it's not entirely bad novel, it has some interesting ideas, but it's definitely not thought through. It's very raw at the beginning (which many sure thing misunderstood and never... more>> cared to continue lol) and shows potential later, but it also feels kind of long and short at the same time. Now some thoughts on it:


    • A bundle of things. Rushed things at first (maybe it's their first novel ever?). I tried not to think how some things contradict each other or how illogical/non-practical some things were. It was obvious author's imagination galloped like a wild horse here and there and they started to correct themselves later. But the basic idea is to plug in MC to their device that sent him to worlds where he should find general's soul and bring it back. The reason - his brainwaves are most close. But later we find out it's not just traveling, but living through his reincarnations. Basically, his goal is just general's soul, but since he knows that his previous reincarnations had a bad ending he focuses to avenge himself too. To achieve the goal he was equiped with a "system", yet it's not a separate smth, everything is like a program in his head, which helps him achieve better characteristics. Not mad at this and don't really care, especially when some things are toned down (e.g. Psychic mind control in first Arc, later mentioned that it doesn't work fully controlling ppl, just weak-minded etc.) or there are plenty descriptions of talent and hard work (paintings in Arc 4, when MC gifts it to temple, mother, creates business around it etc.).

    • Author tried to put out different worlds, they like to give their worlds a simple notion, main theme. Descriptions aren't deep though.
    • CFCS actually repeats some of these worlds, like interstellar and mechas, they even started almost the same. Many are right saying this is draft, I'd say CFCS took it to a better level.
    • The stoned part. I don't know if there are gonna be similar worlds, but boy I think while writing interstellar music (3rd Arc) author was stoned. Maybe the idea was good enough (music and spiritual power go hand in hand), but the execution was really weird to imagine. Many things weren't explained properly and they felt rigid. But when it got to concert and dolphin part, boy have I laughed my ass off so much.

    • MC. The root of author's problem imo is lack of descriptions and feeding the imagination. I do wonder how characters look like just for the sake of starting point. Because on top of some smudged images you don't really get anything. His character is pretty simple, stoic, cunning, and strong.
    • ML. Domineering, strong, a bit obsessed. Arc 1 spoils things a bit, but later it's revealed that his behavior have depended on a 'good will' program pre-installed, which later was removed. Though ML continued to be rouge.
    • I'd like to mention that for many their relationship might be forceful, but unlike first Arc, where MC fell hard in love, actually, MC knows his target, that it is the same person and he could lure and love him openly (he had no reason not to), that's why he openly flirts in his own way. Especially knowing that goodwill program was turned off and their felings are sincere he dives right in.
So after all what can I say. There are novels far worse than this one, far more ridiculous, but despite some nonsense I still find it readable. The main problem is (and maybe will be) that it's stuck in times when author shows potential stuff and later switches to something not that impressive. So it's a weird combo, be warned :) <<less

I read alot of Quick transmigration/ System administrator novels and this is my favorite genre, but I must say I only rate it 3.

It has good plot in arcs but I must say the plot and ending of the revenge gets short after MC and ML find each other and more like showing how possessive/Jealous ML is or the smut kind of scenes.

The other thing that made it rate it 3 was the romance, I know ML must be attracted to MC and all but their romance is very fast... more>> paced, like after meeting each other 2 times they jump straight at it and do it.which made me feel the book gets boring after a few arcs.I wish ML would've let MC had more freedom in decisions and not influenced by ML. And I wish they wouldn't Jump at smut scene when the arcs just have started, that made me feel like they are just attracted to eachother and no deep love, sometimes.

Overall, if you want a quick read in this genre and no deep plot and possessive ML I suggest you reading this, good for killing time and quick read. <<less

The stories are great, the interaction between MC and ML is totally cute. Some people may say that the stories in this title is similar with other title, but i've read another title too and all of them have the seems similar-concept but it convey different story plot for each title, for me it's totally ok, in fact I love those titles too. So, it's no harm to read as to enrich your BL sight world ^^

Dropped this pretty quick, reading this gave me a headache

I've read most of the novels here, unless they have a below 3* rating, I've touch them.

This novel is not good, and it's not because of dubious sexual content or the Mpreg world in arc 2.

... more>> Firstly,

There's no plot development at all. I know quickwear novels have a OP MCs and I don't mind. What I do mind is the writing style of the plot development, every paragraph is like briefly describing a scene/frame of the plot then moving on. There's no 'breathing space' between the key scenes and makes the reader feel very 'tired' even reading a chapter.


It's very flat, the people are flat the world is flat. Novels are ways for readers to immerse themselves and continue reading every chapter. The novel makes me feel like I'm dropping in a white void with paper people and buildings surround me. I don't need it to be realistic or have a sense of realism. But just have a minimum sense of 3D-ness.

I picked this up because of the good reviews and nice cover art. This is the first novel I felt the need to write a review stating how negative I feel about it.

Although there's only c23 now, the chapters are really long. Usually I love it but not this. <<less

Just from the first few chapters you can tell that the plot is rushed. I mean 3 chapters in and they are already doing it, even though MC and ML have only met once/twice. It's just too „unrealistic" and very questionable. You can't even say that it's love at first sight because ML was like „carpe diem" and MC just „Sure". I'm not even kidding. This is exactly what happened. So just by this you can tell that the plot (or the first arc at least) is completely nonsense and... more>> abrupt. <<less

Oh I love this one! This is one of the better transmigrating story imo.

If you love a story where there are second chances to make life better and one where bad guys get what they deserve, this is it! I looked forward to seeing MC smacking the bad guys in every arc. Haha.
