So What If You’ve Been Reborn?


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

The main protagonist Chen He often meets crazy people in his life, and all these people have very deep prejudices against him. They often do weird things.

Once, Chen He polished off a bunch of hired killers (who seemed to be after him?), and eventually found the mastermind.

Chen He: You and I are complete strangers, so why are you doing this to me?

Mastermind: You’re gonna kill me after ten years! Of course I’ve got to make a preemptive strike.

Chen He: …

Chen He: Sir, we have had no bad blood between us, and I have not done anything to offend you. Why are you being so threatening?

Taoist priest: Hmph! In the future, you’ll be offending me to no end. Haven’t you been looking down on me all your life?

Chen He: …but I still have my entire life ahead of me!

Antagonist A: Chen He! Because of your master, I was rejected by XX Sect, and so I was forced to become a demonic cultivator!

Chen He: Who…who are you?

Antagonist B: My future lover’s meridians and good looks were ruined by you, and I’m definitely not gonna let you do it this time!

Chen He could not help but think: There is definitely something wrong with my life!

This story went beyond my expectations. Unlike many of the novels I've checked out, the characters are quite unique (not copy-and-pastes of other BL genre MCs and MLs), the world building is sensible and well thought out, and the plot shows a logical depiction of how the story and timeline can change with multiple characters who have experienced rebirth. On top of that, the translator does excellent, thorough work. I never expected to come across a novel like this here but I definitely hope to find more like this one... more>> in the future. <<less

Fascinating start! The MC, Chen He, has the same memory problems as the female lead in 50 First Dates. After a day, he forgets everything. Unlike in 50 First Dates, Chen He develops this condition in his early childhood, which as you can imagine poses a real problem in his mental growth.

Without giving away any more of the plot, I'd like to say that this story is very interesting. I don't think the romance will develop for quite awhile, but in the mean time I'm enjoying Chen He's development as... more>> a character. <<less

The synopsis does not do a very good job of capturing the atmosphere of the story. It makes it sound like one of those silly revenge stories, when in fact there are not unnamed characters such as 'antagonist A', and the atmosphere is slightly melancholy. The novel is clearly a slow-burn romance, and more about Chen He (MC) and ML escaping their previous fates, the ML learning to forgive himself, and CH recovering his ability to keep memories.

The story itself is very poetic with carefully placed descriptions, plot, and subtle... more>> building of relationships between the ML and MC. It's a story involving character growth, the MC starting as a child (and as one can see, very long, 400 or so chapters!).

The memory loss issue of the MC but him still wanting to be 'mature', and the subdued personality of the ML, where he doesn't even speak (due to certain reasons) adds depth to these characters.


This isn't really a spoiler but a train of thought;

In fact, I don't even know for certain if Chen He (MC) is the shou, and if ML is the gong, or... some other arrangement. And this is because MC seems more interested/attached to 'ML' sort of like puppy love at times, while ML seems rather reserved, even shy, and not likely to start any relationship. Oppositely, MC is sort of naive and cute, and ML is the older more experienced one. For an actual BL relationship, it wouldn't be uncommon for a couple to switch roles, but in nearly every of these novels it's painfully obvious who's who. It's only ch 19 but I hold some expectations (perhaps false hopes) for this one!


The main issue I have is that typical to Xianxia, there is a lot of terminology and strange magical items thrown in, that it reads a bit convoluted to me. Like, they might describe something that doesn't seem all that important, and my gods all the cultivation levels and types. For the fact I've already become somewhat familiar with cultivation terminology, this still hit me on the head like a hammer. This bogs down the story at times. If you are pretty new to this genre, I would not jump into this unless you're ready to read those footnotes the translator so carefully added. Mn, and, so far the antagonists appeared a bit shallow. I suppose a small layer is added if they are also all rebirthed like in the synopsis.

But, I'm still enjoying it a lot regardless.

At ch. 19 it still feels like the show just finally got rolling. At least by this point the backstory for both MC and ML has been developed, and both's are pretty tragic! <<less

Oh yayyyyayyy ! Finally it's here~ I've read so many reviews on this one that I'd been dying to see it translated. I had the urge to read the MTL one lots of times but its a novel based on a xianxia setting so there are many chinese terms that I couldn't possibly understand. So im really happy this got picked up. For now I'll be stockpiling the chapters cos I really cant stand the cliffies~

I maybe on the 13 ch but I can freaking tell this is gonna be a slow burning romance and a freaking jab to meh heart lad! I came for fluff and laughs. But ok, I'm ok [T^T]

Anyhow, the story is quite interesting. Forgetting and forgetting, only remembering his 3 year old self but subconsciously remembering his big bro. Also, fuge that rock.

I otta say that I'm enjoying seeing my little boy growing up! Also, cultivation being a like underground secret is a plus for... more>> me.

I'm probably gonna drop this for personal taste reasons but I recommend anyone to read this for a taste test of what you want! Dip your feet in these waters! <<less

FANTASTIC story. Amazing characters, worldbuilding, with a unique and refreshing plot! Seriously, I don't think it necessarily loses out to Grandmaster or Heavenly Official's Blessing, even if the plot is not as ambitious.

I will say the story is not what the synopsis makes it seem like it is; those things do happen, but comedy is definitely not the key characteristic of this story. It's not all that light and fluffy, and quite a slow burn but a really really good one!

Characters: 5/5

I LOVE our MC and ML so much. This... more>> story should actually get a Disabilities tag probably because the MC has a situation where the moment he falls asleep his memories reverts back to when he was 3. However, due to the diligent care of ML, his mentality grows and there are ways for him to retrieve memories. All things considered, he's actually very clever. Seriously, the ML shows such patience and care. And throughout the story, we see true character development of both of them. Sure ML starts off very OP, but it never feels like he's dominating in such a way that meat pies just fall out of the skies.

Plot: 5/5

I love the story idea to begin with, and the story definitely does not disappoint. Developments are logical and very entertaining, and basically I love it to death.

Writing & Translation: 5/5

The translator did AMAZING work. It's clear their love for the story, and they go above and beyond to explain developments in it and convey this story appreciation for readers. However, I think they've dropped it unfortunately, so I REALLY REALLY REALLY HOPE SOMEONE PICKS THIS UP PLEEEEEEASE. <<less

As I thought I would before ever reading it, I LOVE this novel. A very basic synopsis: guy who a bunch of reborn people think is the villain in their protagonist origin story proves that he is in fact the og main character, both before and after their rebirths.

Both the plot and the characters are very well thought out, with us exploring the world alongside the MC Chen He as he and the ML Shi Feng get wrapped up in the various schemes of the reborn and begin to realize... more>> there's a lot of strange people who hate CH for seemingly no reason. Adventures ensue.

I have all this stuff I want to say about the story and specially the main characters, but I also want people to discover all this on their own and feel all these things with me. If it's the romance you want to read about, then I assure you these two are top tier both separately and together. It really fun to read how their relationship evolved as they, especially Chen He (who went from 6 years old to 17 to WAY older than that), experience all kinds of things and mature. There's no dumb drama between them, or in any of the plot for that matter, but it's never stagnant either. They move forward with each other.


I'm making a bet with myself that eventually, somehow some way, the MC is gonna top. Don't think I missed that one time where he contemplated it for like a second before he was like 'nah senior brother's so nice to me, this is enough' BUT IS IT REALLY?? And just literally this chapter there was a cop-out that was most definitely intentional on the author's part and not just my imagination, because I went to the comments on jjwxc and EVERYONE was either joking that the MC hadn't lived up to 'expectations' or just laughing themselves to death. And I swear there used to be the reversible couple tag here, but it got taken down IM NOT CRAZY OK. So yeah, that might happen and if it does, I shall never doubt the BL gods until the next novel that teases me like this, I guess.

The story is good with great character and world building. As someone else mentioned, this is undoubtedly a slow burn romance which is fine by me though I feel it would only make me feel more strongly of their hardships if ever.

Thanks to the translator for your efforts!

I should have taken the title literally rather than the synopsis... Its only chapter 33 now and there has already been 5 reborn characters... From the synopsis I thought it would have been more spaced out with more focus on each reborn character... But they come in droves... And its kinda frustrating... But also the fact that thanks to them and their plot changing actions that MCs life changed for the best.

The 43 chapters I read were so amazing. All the characters feel so real. And some of the scenes makes you laugh. The mls are pretty unique too and are not copies of every other bl couple we see. Hopefully a new translator picks it up. It is truly such an interesting work. I read this in spring 2021 and it is still on my mind 😖😖❤❤

The description DID NOT greatly depict the essence of this story. I originally thought that it would be comedic in a sense but it was more world-building and cultivation. The story is refreshing and the characters all have unique personalities. The romance is yet to unfold but up until where I am, there are subtle (yet obvious) depictions of their love for each other (which they may have not realized yet). I was entranced by the story and I greatly recommend it!

The basic premise of the story was the MC... more>> had an accident when he was 3 years old where he hit his head in rocks and suffered a blood clot in his head. This led him to forget everything about the day when he sleeps. Once awaken, he only remembers the day before the accident happened. So, even at 6 years old, he still has the mind of a 3-year-old. ML picks him up and they cultivate together!

I read it until Chapter 43 in just 4 days because the translation for this novel is SUPERB. They were not translating it word-for-word but rather making it fit the English language and for the easier understanding of the readers.

(Possibly a spoiler!) Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the MC and ML are not reborn, but rather trying to change their fates. Both of them were fated of harsh lives, where they would face tribulations that would have never befallen another cultivator. It is mainly ML at the first part who would try to change (without knowing) MC's future. The reborn characters all had harsh opinions on ML because of their cruel end in the past life brought by MC. I still have not encountered the reasons for their rebirth at this point (End of possible spoiler!).

Anyway, this is very compelling! I highly recommend it! <<less

This is the most interesting story I've read recently. The story is opposite of others where MC or ML is reborn and grab every opportunities. This is the story with reborn cannon fodders and villains, and MC and ML have no idea of what happened in previous life.
