I agree with other posters, the beginning is very similar to the Reader Protagonist True Love and the dynamic is similar also. I really love the different worlds, they're fun and drive the romance forward naturally. The final arc is a little rushed but the ending is so sweet I almost cried. Definitely worth reading!
PSA: Translation is amazing till 60-something (was dropped) and the bad MTL kind of took me out of it but I'd still recommend.

THIS BOOK HAS THE MOST SATISFYING ENDING EVER!!! It was so heartwarming, so perfect, so so damn beautiful that I cried. Fast-paced and no boring moments. In my opinion, this book is comparable to QWFOD. They are different of course but the level of enjoyment is the same. I'm giving this 5 shiny stars. ★★★★★

The ML of this book is kinda like the ML of 'The Reader and the Protagonist Definitely Have to be in True Love'. When they met the MC they were both abandoned by the world. So when the ML met the MC, the ML treated the MC as his own God. Of course, the ML has his own demons (he's kinda yandere), but he loves the MC so everything is fine. This book also has great character developments for both MC and ML.

The worlds created by the author were so unique! I've never read these kinds of world in other 'fast wear' series. The worlds they travelled into were real worlds. The MC and ML don't stay long in the worlds, when they leave, the original owner of the bodies come back and they treat the memories left by the MC and ML as their own.

Take the leads from "The Reader and The Protagonist Has To Be In Love" and dump them in the world of FOD and you will get an idea of what to expect, and still be surprised!

You will love this for the character development for both of them, the interesting missions, the amount of Meng the MC sells, and just how devoted they are to each other.

For those wondering, it has snu snu. WONDERFUL amounts of snu snu. Lol.

Another story where the MC is basically a Chinese shoujo heroine in all but physical gender. He's not smart and lacks common sense. If you like this kind of MC than you will probably love this novel, which is packed full of cute and fluffy moments. The ML is the typical super possessive yandere who is insanely OP at everything. This MC is tolerable, all things considered, and there's character growth for both him and the ML, which is rare for these kinds of MC. Still, if you prefer stories... more>> where the MC is smart, decisive and is equal partners with the ML than you might not like it as much. <<less

Yep, I read the MTL and spoiled this and love it and now its picked up. It's pretty sweet and fluffy and yea ML is a yandere but not the extreme kind. MC is somewhat naive but not the annoying kind either.. Its just the right chemistry imo. ^^

This is one of my favourite BL novels that I've read. The characters are really well done, their relationship is well paced and nicely portrayed. The worlds they visit are very interesting, and the plot does not revolve just around physical intimacy (although there will be some of that at some point). Although the ML comes on strong ... more>>

yandere to the bone, also for the interested party up there he is the gong

he's respectful and has some good development.

MC isn't a white lotus, and he is quite funny.

It's a unique look at a common theme, so there are some familiar elements, but you certainly won't regret picking it up. Says the one translating it. The spoiler thread is very in depth so if you want to let the story remain a bit of a surprise I would recommend not going there, but if you can't wait, well--you wouldn't be the first!!

The only slight downside is that maybe it feels just a little bit rushed at the end, but I think that the story is still wrapped up well so it's not a disappointment--rather the author just didn't use room they had. <<less

MC really ruins everything for me. He´s everything you don´t want paired with an over-possessive total yandere ML type. He´s a clutz, lacks common sense and his IQ is negative which results in him being taken advantage of all the time by ML. Like a small rabbit he´s so timid and obedient, making him very unlikable, thus I felt no chemistry between MC and ML and since there really is nothing to be attracted to for this rabbit who acts like a small, frightened girl, ML´s obsession with him... more>> was a huge question mark and left me unconvinced. Shame, I really enjoy reading about these types of male leads if only that worthless MC was replaced. <<less

It's so beautiful. I read the entire thing and it's complete. :)

ML is extremely possessive but also very strong and loving towards MC. He singlemindedly loves MC. I also really like MC. He is gentle, kind, and forgiving. I like his character a lot. :) This was a beautiful story. One of my favourite endings. I've rarely read such beautiful endings and I read a lot. :)

First off, I applaud the author for such a unique take on the "system" genre; having an MC who becomes a system was a really interesting premise. But, rather than having the MC sit back and watch his host complete the tasks as one would expect, the author gradually gives the MC a larger role in the worlds they visit, so we get to see a team dynamic that I've yet to see in this type of novel.

Outside of the refreshing reboot of a common trope, the story itself is... more>> actually fairly well written. The relationship between the two leads in this novel reminds me a lot of "The Reader and Protagonist" in that we see the MC's feelings progress from pity to friendship to love, while the Male lead's desire for control grows into attachment which grows into a sort of bone deep dependence. The underlying plot could have been fleshed out further as the final confrontation arc was a bit rushed, but I think it was still well done. And the end was cute and satisfying and everything. Honestly, I have almost no complaints about this novel (and even my one complaint would be the author writing more) so I think this story well deserves it's 5 stars! <<less

A really well-written and well-translated novel, one that should be able to satisfy any yaoi-lover as long as they are not prejudiced towards any of the genres/tags.

So far, the story is pretty engaging. An interesting and unique aspect of this novel is the presence of a background story (or post-arc) that is equally as engaging and relevant as the arcs.

There is a good chemistry between the so-called system Shi qing and the main lead Qing Mo. Their scenes together are ample and manages to evoke the reader's interest, but not... more>> enough to be oversaturated and nauseating.

Characters are pretty well developed owing to good background description and do not come off as bland or one-dimensional.

Overall, worth a read. Not only because amidst the sea of "system administrator" tagged novels it has its own niche and manages to stand apart from them. But also because the story and characters make it an enjoyable read. <<less

This is an amazing start for an amazing danmei/BL series that has a pretty epic plot. The quality of the translations is also very nice! I don't want to spoil too much other than saying (and you know from the story summary) that the main character is the System and the ML is a bit yandere, but sweet. If you're curious, the summary spoilers are here:

I tried giving it a chance since people seem to really like it but I find the MC to be really annoying. I really don't get the appeal of having someone who's close to 20 act like they're 10.

If you don't mind that then the story is nicely written and the ML has a brain which is always a pleasant surprise. The usual worlds but they're still nicely done.

but I just couldn't read anymore after they turned the MC into his animal form against his wishes to prevent any kind of interactions between him and ML

This is such a good read and it's not like any other QT. It's very interesting premise to have the protagonist as the system and not the host. The ML is a yandere that I can take and liked, his not like a yandere for the sake being a yandere, he got layers and he had very depressing past. He's also a type of person that less talk but more on actions to express his feelings to MC. I thought MC is a bit of a damsel in distress, but... more>> he got some character development. And the last arc is such a cherry on top of an ending to end the novel and explaining the world of MC and ML has.

Here's the last/extra chaps:


They got extra chaps and boy did the author sent us the smut, I thought the author isn't going to let us read it but they did. Dam ML hella h**ny👀. He used the cloning technique to MC and had an did it with the mls (double penetration). There's also an extra they're in a candy world and MC had two holes 👁️👄👁️ (like he got a p**sy) and did it with three mls. There also another one they're in an orc world where most male orc have big dongs and MC is very le*d at that time. Not gonna lie I'm satisfied with the extra hope you enjoy this spoiler.

This is a great book, honestly I was puzzled at how the writer was going to make this concept interesting, in the end it's a fairly successful work.

The author connects the host and the system brillianly and even makes the romance development fairly logical and cute. (A rare balance in webnovels).

The gong is at a deadend and holds on to his line of salvation (shou) tightly, the shou supports him and gives him hope though he doesn't know how immerse his little acts of kindness affect the gong. Super meng!

The... more>> only drawback is the dreadful curse of repitition and irrelevant facts the writers tosses at us, especially when writing of the shou. At first, I thought of the shou as a worrywart, whose complaints seriously hindered the flow of the story, later I learnt to skim over it. The only negative points are from this fact. <<less

I finished reading this novel last last last month, maybe. I forgot to write a review. I saw it updated just now and was currently rereading it, cause I remember how fluffy this novel was. MC is so cute, and so naive. I specially like the extra where they both became cats to visits MC's parents.

I also like the theme of this novel where the system can interact with the host personally and can help their host physically not just talked in their head.

I love the twist in the end.... more>> They both became lord god... Hahaha...

This is really good, worth rereading.

I will wait patiently for the update of this series to reread a complete translation. o ((*^▽^*)) o <<less

I just finished reading the raws of the whole novel. As usual, Google Translate made my head hurts from all the incomprehensible and strange translations, but for the sake of my desperation to know the full story, I managed to finish everything in one night.

It was worth it.

I have three favorite arcs throughout the whole novel,

... more>>

and they are the "beastman world", "time reversal" and the "ABO" arc. Basically because it's these arcs where Shi Qing and Qin Mo's relationship took a great development.


I also really like the characters. Shi Qing is very simple-minded, even a bit naive and childlike at some point. But what really makes me appreciate him is his honesty, even to himself and his own feelings. He is very amusing and


he's just too adorable as a little panda. I want my own little Shi Qing panda too!!

Meanwhile, Qin Mo is the typical cold, ruthless and possessive male lead with a reasonable background and history to justify his character. And even though he was a bit of a psycho at first, he gets better (but still obsessed with Shi Qing). I love them two together because their relationship is heartwarming and pure.

I like how this story is different just from the fact that the main characters are a system and its host. And the developments in the later chapters made me like it more because it is unique and the twists are unexpected in a way (at least for me).


Of course, the expected part is the existence of other hosts and system pairs, which isn't really much of a shock. But what makes it different is how it described Shi Qing's circumstances as 'different' from the rest of his systems, mainly because he has the system store, which other don't have.


For a bit of a rundown of major events

    • there are pandas (yes, cute little pandas)
    • time reversal arc that started off in the bed, naked o_o
    • ABO world
    • vengeance is served towards Qin Mo's enemies
    • There are many other host and system pairs
    • Shi Qing is a
      golden finger,

      in more ways than one.
    • Hosts devouring systems
    • The ultimate battle to become a ___ ?!
    • Back to Earth, meow~
    • Happy Ending

Rating: 4.0

Pairing Type: system MC x host ml; shou MC x gong ml; slightly yandere ml; slightly dumb mc; think skinned mc; doting ml

Tropes: QT; system admin; implied mpreg; omegaverse; beast world

... more>> Triggers: death

Heat level: medium-high, leads are very intimate, moderately explicit love scenes

Re-readability: medium, may reread (I will very likely re-read the last 20+chapters after they are properly translated. The Mtl was completely horrendous)

Very cute QT with an interesting concept. This is my first time seeing a system MC. QTs sometimes struggle to make clear stakes and interesting villains but this one did a good job at creating a general antagonist from the very beginning.

There wasn’t a single boring arc, and the arcs didn’t overstay their welcome.

ML has some yandere elements but I like him enough. He clearly really loves MC and his need for attachment is justifiable with his tragic backstory. I also feel that MC made him more well-adjusted.

Overall, I’d recommend <<less

Overall, it's pretty good. Arcs don't span across centuries as most QT novels do, they are instead time-limited. And since completing these tasks ahead of the schedule gives extra points, our host Qin Mo doesn't dilly dally either and finishes them pretty quickly. This may not be really important to you lol, but I've seen arcs that couldn't be finished in 40+ chapters and questioned my life choices quite often. Like, the genre is Quick Transmigration, right? THEN EXPLAIN WHY THIS SUPPOSED QUICK JOURNEY IS LONGER THAN MY LIFESPAN AND... more>> PATIENCE? I WOULD HAVE READ A SHORT NOVEL INSTEAD?? In short, I'm very satisfied with the size of the arcs here.

For the characters, ngl I like ML more than I do the MC lmao, which is a rare occurrence for me. Qin Mo (ML) is resourceful, smart, quick-witted and a mental case at the same time. I like his way of thinking and his practicality. He tolerates no-nonsense, has no moral integrity, if killing is the easiest way he would do it most practically... Damn, I do like him a lot, but I'll just stop my fangirling here ig.

Then let's talk about our system Shi Qing. To be frank, he's the worst part of the novel. His IQ is in freezing points, does nothing except selling meng nonstop, but also quite useful sometimes that makes him somewhat redeemable. He's this close to being a tragic damsel in distress, then does sth s*upid and gets even closer, then pulls sum stunt that makes you say "Alright you pass this time." and slightly widens that gap back. You get the gist of it, I suppose.

So, the plot is neat, ML passes, MC needs some remodelling but this novel is still worth giving a shot. TL is also excellent btw.

Edit: Ending was hella rushed and weak, shame I can't edit the rating lmao. <<less

Only at chapter 81, I tried to MTL but just couldn't get into the MTL. Will read again when translated as I really like what I've read.

It's not perfect and not sure if I like the ML or not but I do like the different take on QT. I like that the novel explains how they are real worlds, what happens after they leave, and the people they borrow bodies from are compensated.

MC doesn't seem really like a system, it feels more like a dual QT book which I am... more>> really liking. I am glad he isn't the typical system as that is what put me off from reading this for so long. Some light smut.

ML had a messed up life and he is trying to re learn how to treat a person as a person and not a possession. He does try and change for MC, but I'm still not totally in love with ML.

MC is the cute silly type. I like him, he does have some brains to him, just takes a bit longer for him to come to the same conclusion as the ML. Both MC and ML are OP so if that isn't your thing, I wouldn't suggest this novel, I personally like OP MCs.

The translation was good, cleaned up MTL, but well done. I really look forward to this being fully translated. <<less
