A bit confusing to read because of the way the story's laid out, but actually pretty funny towards the end. You have an overbearing Emperor and a guy who's been added to his harem but doesn't understand why he's receiving so much favoritism. And he keeps worrying until his hair's almost falling out over how the Emperor seems to be doing un-Emperor-ly things. Story starts in the present without much (if any) of the backstory, which is introduced in the special ending chapters and will make you have an 'aha!'... more>> moment and realize why the Emperor's behaving as he is.

Spoiler

In the original timeline, the main character died to save the Emperor. The Emperor was very sad because he was probably the only person who genuinely worried about him without ulterior motives (excepting his eunuch). Miraculously, the Emperor travels back in time before the incident (present timeline) and meets the main character again and due to some actions, realizing the main character has ALSO traveled back in time. Cue the massive overspoiling of the main character and romance.

Short and sweet is the best way to describe this novel. It's a quick read so I really recommend it if you're looking for some humorous fluff.
Spoiler

The MC and ML are mutually in love. I do think this is sort of a spoiler, because when you first start reading you're not immediately aware that the MC likes the ML, so his reactions to the ML's actions seem even funnier.

[collapse]
After reading through the story once, I highly recommend reading the story again to get the full effect. For such a short story there were such subtle hints and implications in the text that you just don't realize until the second read through.

The translations by IAmABanana are also good. The words flow in English while keeping a Chinese atmosphere. When the translator leaves a Chinese word in, it is immediately followed by an explanation so the reader doesn't get lost.

This review is also available on my blog: vanillamusenovels. Wordpress. Com along with my thoughts on other ongoing projects. Unless I've finished reading a novel or it pissed me off so much that I DNF'ed it, I don't think it's fair for me to affect its rating on NU.

This is such a beautiful and incredible story of loyalty and romance!!!! Whenever my heart aches because of other s*upid romances with horrible MLs and a suffering MC, I always re-read this story coz it's just so heart-warming and nice.

The beauty of short stories is how ingenious the author makes it out to be. Reading it once gave me the "ohhh..." but rereading it multiple times and scavenging the words and phrases the author leaves gave me the "OHHHHHH!!!"

Plot: A pretty cliche story about a man who died and was given the gift by God, or so he says, to revert 6 months into the past to relive his days again. You get a first-person perspective of this man, Rong Huai Zhen, who tries his best within the five... more>> chapters to escape his approaching death.

Character: Rong Huai Zhen

Because the story is so short, the analysis is really just spoilers.

Spoiler

I started reading his perspective and I became reluctant to the fluffiness of this novel. Was Rong Huai Zhen really into this relationship? Did he actually even love Duan Ming Zhang? I don't like novels where the uke is forced by the seme to be in the relationship so this turned me off in the beginning. I finished the novel and by the guidance of Banana, I reread the story. Our protagonist, Rong Huai Zhen is a TSUNDERE. The revelation of the story is when you're told how he died, disguising himself as the emperor and sacrificing his life. Well, why would he, a coward, do that? Well, there's one implicit reason: love. He loved the emperor before the relife and showed the emperor the utmost genuine affection stronger than anyone else. That's when I realized that throughout the entire novel, where Rong Huai Zheng dreaded his own death, [My first hope ever since rebirth, was if he was also reborn, that would be great. Otherwise, I am really worried I will die again. God knows how much I don't want to die ah!] He never had the consideration to just abandon the emperor. Legit, his only way of survival is if Duan Ming Zhang is safe. [But but, if that moment really came, probably still have no way around it ba. I continued looking at Duan Ming Zhang with melancholy, continued staring until nose starting to feel sour, eyes starting to become red.] The author uses the poisoning incident to further explore our courageous coward's insight on love. [If you really loved someone, you can't wait to die on their behalf, how can anyone bear to harm the other with poison?] Gah, I just love how the author hides such foreshadowing and hints throughout the short story about such pure love.

[collapse]

Character: Duan Ming Zhang
Spoiler

seme

[collapse]

He has the typical character of a king, somewhat arrogant but also charming. I find it a bit like Sherlock syndrome that he felt for the MC but no matter, at the end they are at peace, in love with one another. He dotes on the MC and his actions speak more than words. You can absolutely tell that he DETERMINED to be with the MC.

Character: The brothers

God I love their relationship with the MC. It's so sweet. They're the strong men. The MC is the introvert. Yet, the MC has the "power" to scold them and warn of their bad habits. It's great.

Overall, you know what, read it. Reading it just makes this review insignificant. Read it twice too. Or Thrice. <<less

Ok, I had to chime in after reading some reviews here.

Don't be led astray by the way things are described in the first few chapters!

Read the spoilers section especially of KannaBiyou's review here after reading it if you don't want to reread the whole novel again. They stated the quotes of foreshadowing of the plot which are especially cute and show that this is absolutely a romance novel and there's no unequal power imbalance involved. Unless one is completely blind towards the tsundere nature of the MC, it's hard to... more>> understand MC's actions any other way. I mean, MC makes it so obvious that he purposely provokes the ML. He is in no way a 'devoted subject'. He flagrantly violates every possible rule imaginable. How can he be perceived as a devoted subject? It's baffling to me.

Spoiler

For ex, even in the last extra, he was being so salty and jealous about him having a harem and deliberately provoked him to spread his rain nectar evenly. ROFL.

"Anyway, according to what he said, sooner or later he will favor someone else one day. By that time, I might even became an empty shell of an Empress who have family background but not favoured. Maybe just the first and fifteenth day of the every month, he will come to spread his nectar" If he is in an 'imbalanced' relationship, why would he worry about how many times he spends the night with ML and deliberately provoke him? He's not an idiot. In fact, he's quite daring and perceptive. So the reason he did that is because he wanted ML to know he doesn't like the harem.

Even his complaints after becoming an Empress... "This harem has three thousand beauties ya, but the Emperor only favors me alone~ So I advised the Emperor ya, must 'rain~ nectar~ evenly~ spread~', but he just won't listen! Spoiled me! Spoiled me! He just spoiled me alone!" He's clearly showing off here. Want me to believe that this is just a 'devoted subject' sighing about the 'misfortune' of being favored by a 'dragon and phoenix' like man? That's MC's description of ML btw. He's hilarious!

[collapse]

Nah, I refuse to believe this ain't a romance and I've made my case. <<less

I'm honestly baffled about why people think this cute or romantic. It doesn't seem to me that the MC has any feelings for the ML except as devoted subject who would rather be somewhere else. It seems more like a story of a person who tries to do a good thing in a past life, using the tools he had available, who is then forced into a relationship he'd rather not have in the next by a person with greater power.

Kudos to the writer and translator for telling a complete... more>> story in such a short number of chapters, but the writer left out the part where the MC has any romantic feelings at all. I can only assume that's on purpose because this isn't a romance. This is pretty good as a study of 2 people who can't communicate and have an unhealthy power imbalance, and I graded it as such. The problem is, they don't go far enough to show that this is what they're doing. If I was grading as a romance, I'd give it a one.

Spoilers ahead, big ones
Spoiler

We're given exactly 2 incidents in the past to work with in terms of this being a mutual romance and not a one sided and obsessive one. One, that he tells the emperor he's good looking while unwell, which doesn't mean much other than that the emperor is good looking. And two, that the MC calls him by name and kisses him while trying trying to take his outer clothes for completely non-romantic reasons. How else would a person take a grown man's clothes? You pretty much have to make them think there's a fun reason to allow it. In the absence of other evidence, this isn't enough to show anything but loyalty.

Absolutely beautiful story! I got confused previously when I read the first chapter, fund it interesting on the following 3 chapter, then suddenly hooked on the fifth chapter! &Gt;_<

I read it twice after I finish chapter 8 and after learning their background and POV's, I can't stop smiling on how beautiful their interactions are :) :). Very recommended to read!

Absolutely adorable. I highly recommend this novel if you're looking for a short and really cute bl novel. The main characters may not have chapters long enough to dwell on their in-dept personalities but its really well written. Honestly, its like deep schemes and long chapters aren't all that necessary to display the feelings the 2 have for each other.

Surprisingly very cute and sweet story. As what the translator and some commenter say, after reading the novel, you must reread it again to fully grasp the story.

It's a little bit confusing to me at first but after reading all the chapters I was able to understand everything, so just don't stop in the middle. It's only 8 chapters anyway.

Only complain that I have is that the author didn't show much of the MC and ML's relationship but then it says that the MC saves the ML from the assassination.

Also,... more>> from reading this part of the story it clearly shows the the MC has feelings for the ML. So, I don't understand people saying that there's no feelings from the MC

Spoiler

I stared at him in shock, and he lowered down his gaze.
“Apocalypse year five, eleventh day of twelfth lunar month, we were nearby at an abandoned section of the Palace wall.”

“We were chased by the rebels and there’s nowhere else to hide, practically forced to dead end.”

“You suddenly rushed over... kissed me, then knocked me out and stripped me of my clothes to let our people take me away.”

“..... ”

“Afterwards, Huai Zhen you put on my clothes, and climbed up that Palace wall. You let the rebels misunderstood, letting them think we were escaping out through that direction... Huai Zhen, getting pierced by arrow, was it painful? It was twelfth lunar month winter time, falling into the moat, was it cold?”

[collapse]

Anyway, just give this novel a chance. Enjoy <<less

The story seriously was too too too short!

MC's character is so adorable and pure. The emperor feelings got me when it was explained, how event by event describing his view of the world, your heartstrings will be pulled line by line as you keep reading.

The story is a bit confusing at first, but tolerable, then it becomes wonderful as you get to know the heart of the plot. It also has that laughable vibe within MC's view of the events happening around him.

This novel is just fluff. The ML and MC are two cinnamon rolls and it's their interactions. There's not really any noticeable plot.

really felt bad for the emperor when it was described how he mourned every year for MC TT and how he strived to give the MC a life free of suffering and showering him with his love because of that fortunate second chance ;-;

[collapse]

tho my only qualm was that, yeah. The love wasn't exactly equal or reciprocated, which is prob just for me! The emperor loves him v much and he's the star in his eyes but he's too busy fearing for his life and chastity xDDD

but it's so short it really isnt a major problem!!! It's really not. MC loves him as well really. It just wasn't expressed xD

really cute! <<less

It's a short and kinda silly story that made more sense as time went by.

Spoiler

It might be a bit of a spoiler, but finding out that the two leads mutually loved each other although the MC didn't sound so sure was really great!

[collapse]

The links wouldn't work (they're dead), b/c the translator moved here ->

I hope this helps and hopefully, you'll like it as much as me! ^^

Heehee! I love reading this, enjoyable even after multiple reads
Oh, I have such soft spot for undying love and short sweet stories!!!
rebirth is very focused, not much other elements like face slapping/killing cannon fodder (because it's short)
highly recommend, pretty sad, you might cry so don't read it in public if you cry easily!

I'd like more chapters, sure, but what would the story be? I think wrapping it early is best...
P.S. MC's brothers are so cute

A short, but adorable story. You probably need to read it twice to really get it. I feel like it could have been a biiiit longer but it has just enough detail for the story to make sense and the ending is very satisfying. The extras range from cute to downright sad.
