Spring Once More


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

Ma Xiaodong was a good-natured young man content with his lot in life. He had a job, a girlfriend, and a car. In this life, he had it made. One day he had a quarrel with his girlfriend who cursed his lack of ambition, saying that he should be struck by lightning from the heavens. As he drove through the pouring rain, a dazzling lightning bolt hit his car!

Unbelievable… the heavens must have gotten something wrong!! As compensation for the mistake, the underworld’s emissary let him transmigrate into a good body with great fortune.

Thus he was reborn as a first-class prince in Ancient times. But what’s this? Why is the person in his bed a man? This is not good!

To be completely unspoilerish about this book, from a person who's read this entire book:
Read this book. It is one of DFGG's earlier works, when she called herself a "novel newbie", but this is naturally just being humble on her part, because it's full of beautiful sentences and beautiful hidden sentiments and the mere mention of some of the lines bring me to tears. Again. I have the ximalaya audiobook saved on my phone and they open with some of those lines. Yup. Still works. Queue the waterworks. I've... more>> since read a lot more of her books and her short stories, and she has improved, but there is a rawness in Spring Once More, the brutality of her side-story plotting that I don't see in her later stuff.

Thing is, it opens like a light-novel, it narrates like a light novel, but there's absolutely nothing light about it. The storylines of each of the characters are serious, and maybe DFGG takes some time to get there, and maybe you miss it --- it's in between the humour, in the cues Ma Xiaodong misses, in the things he doesn't do, that Chai'rong have done, in how Pei Qixuan is oddly attached to his other name, Ruoshui.

I actually posted a review onto my tumblr which I've now lost, but I remember saying this clearly: it's definitely not a light novel, meant to be read in the moment, to entertain, and then forgotten. This one stays with you. (10/10 will let it do things to my heart over and over again.) <<less

It is so funny. Love the translation too b (^_^) d

Story about straight man whose soul got inside a gay Prince.

He tried to manage his "harem" that full of beautiful men and his mission to make all of them manly man. Also he tried to find beautiful girl to be his mate yet the one that approaching him always a handsome male. I was laughing so hard.

The author try to descript satir from main character point of few. Good job b (^_^) d two thumbs up.

It has a good premise for comedy. The plot is something to look forward to! Too? The analogy used by the author is hilarious as hell tho.

Thanks for translator for picking up this novel!

I really enjoyed this story! The protagonist is humorous and its interesting to see him adjust to his new identity.

I was pleasantly surprised when he was discovered as someone else but it actually helped the story because without their support he wouldn't have been able to pass it off.

It's also so hard to find seme protagonist stories which made me appreciate it more and the fact that he had his own harem. The romance was also developing well and I wish translation could continue or and an official English version would be published.

Fun story!! I love our protagonist. In the beginning I was mad because he's such a scum, but as the story goes on he becomes more realistic and smart. Plus his thoughts are very humorous.

The plot itself is quite fun as well, a lighthearted take on being an ancient Chinese prince.

I looooove that he's a seme protagonist!!!! I also love that it's harem, and I hope it's harem ending!!!

Hopefully this story continues!

“Straight” comedy to those who find this trope funny. Not for me but other people will probably find this hilarious.

Straight up comedy.

And about harem thing - it is not a harem genre, but an actual harem. (If you get what I mean)

Light read, pretty enjoyable.
