Still, Wait For Me


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

Inexplicably reborn in the year 2003, having failed terribly in his previous life, the prevailing concern with Xu Tingsheng, that stands above all else, is none other than her. But alas, he is just months away from entering university, while she is but in her first year of junior high… Regarding this, all he can do is wait silently…for now.

In the meantime, other matters remain. There were quite a few things that went…rather badly, back then. Given the chance to change things, how would it not be the best decision to give that roulette wheel another spin with the odds stacked a better way, to attempt to change those dismal fates? And in some matters, does the alternative even truly exist? Hence flaps the butterfly’s wings…

In Xu Tingsheng’s new ‘second chance’ life, the power of foreknowledge coupled with intelligence pre-empts excellence, and that, coupled with personal charisma and character, begets women. Here he strives for success, while always keeping foremost in his mind that for which he exists, that which his achievements are ultimately meant to protect and cherish. And amidst all this, the season of youth does bloom for the young, deep, complicated romance and spontaneous, hot-blooded fighting never failing to inspire.

Philosophical and deep amidst the great, original tale of modernity it tells, this is a thought-provoking story of life, on life, on living.

This will be my first ever review as well as my first impressions on the first 15 chapters. To those that want a quick answer for now, just read it. It's very promising and nicely written in many aspects and you should give it a shot. At least try the first 5 chapters.

Now the detailed review (I'll try to be spoiler and story-content free) :

  • Synopsis: The story is the familiar second chance type novel where the MC dies and returns to his younger self. His goal after getting this second chance is to fix all the regrets of his past life. The biggest regret being not getting together with his past love. Now, this is NOT a second chance story that's all about chasing after that past love. The story and MC doesn't waste his second chance just for one girl. Yes, that romance is a large part of it, but there are so many regrets that he wishes to change. It isn't like Rebirth Thief or MMORPG Guardian or Very Pure and Ambiguous when it comes to the action of our MC. It's a much more realistic and meaningful second chance (at least based on these 15 chapters).
  • MC Backstory: The backstory/past doesn't have that type of forced bitterness or gloom that you say is just part of the setup. It's about a normal man with regrets. He didn't become some rich and successful guy that lost everything along with his love. It's about more importantly a regular man who grew up and had learned the taste of regret and sourness of life. From that grey feeling of living a repetitive and meaningless life as a worker to seeing a good friend he knew at high school marry and face debt, that is his story, that is his past. He is a far more real person than most MCs.
  • Writing: The thing that drew me when I first read the story is the skill of writing shown by the excellent translation and literary skill of the author. The sentences flow and have character. It isn't like reading your average amateur web novel about isekai or cultivation. It's like reading a properly written and polished work as if it was an English writer making a Chinese styled novel. If I have to compare, I'd have to rate the writing it as the same or above when I was impressed by Dungeon Defense or the poetic chapters of Transcending the Nine Heavens. It also gave the promising atmosphere from novels like Big Life, God of Music, and God of Cooking. When it comes to the writing, I think you'll like it. Huge props to the translators.
  • Story: Now to the actual content after the rebirth. MC returns to when he was in the last year of high school. This is important since it's the period where most of his regrets lay as well as a crucial part where many decisions will affect his life. The story follow mainly him and his school life, preparing for university, his best friends, many school incidents and news-worthy/world incidents, relationships, girls etc.

    We know that the heroine/love is younger than MC by 4 or 5 years so she's still in junior high. This plays a big role since like the title MC wants to be ready for when he reaches that point of meeting in the timeline. Why does he leave her alone till then? Because he older, she doesn't know him, and he doesn't want to affect her growth. Well, he still can't help himself to do some small things though (he never done anything so far that seem major, no reveal identity, no talking to her, so from the sidelines). It's up to him sending a package of medicine and looking for her to check that she exists. The appearances of the love up to ch15 is very little though.



    MC also has to deal with some past regrets. One preventing the death of his father. There is also University. Helping his BFs not have to repeat a year as well as improving his future in general like financially and his relationships. There are also some incidents that happen at school that make the plot not boring as well as maybe drama from some girls.


    The MC uses his second chance to fix many regrets of his past. This is done realistically and more than most novels. His actions have an actual effect and consequences. His future knowledge also is not a broken cheat and doesn't affect much other than him wanting to change the past. His memories are also not perfect and it also shows that somethings can't be changed and somethings can.


    When it comes to the focus, it's not all romance, but more about MC fixing things and his relationships with friends, family, and girls (there MIGHT be drama from girls and "harem", but MC is faithful and so far the other girls are done in a "not a true wifu but is a girl character there kind of way"). It definitely doesn't seem to be annoying harem drama instead a faithful to heroine type of romance. There might be drama and heartbreak since there is development in the future, but so far it's done in a light way that doesn't weigh too much. I hope that in the future the way MC deals with the girls go well since so far it is done in a nice way.


    The writing and events add emotion and personality to the characters. I especially find the MC to be a good guy that readers will like. The others characters so far don't have too much importance or personality to the story since it's through the MC's thoughts, but at least the connection the MC has with them seem more real than in most novels. By the way, this novel has a lots of EMOTION, (at least currently) not the bad kind of emotions. This story is realistic so it has a lot of real life reactions and events so it won't be a total wish-fulfillment MC solves everything as is coolest type novel. It shows the actual realism of life and the emotions of the MC.
Overall if you're looking for a second chance, travel back in time type novel with a likable MC in a realistic setting with good emotion, excellent writing, and great promise check it out. Let's hope it remains this good. It does have things that I hope it can improve, but so far it's a good read better than most other Chinese novels on NU.

This is a true slice of life novel. It will make you sad and connect with the characters. The side characters and main characters background is really well done. It is also really believable the emotions depicted in the book and the irrationality of "love" and sometimes you just cant control who you love. I like it and the author shows human emotion in a true sense.

First review and made an account just for this.

~I recommend if you like drama and being touch and you may be sad at some... more>> of the choices the MC makes but it keeps his integrity and character. Its a train ride if nothing else.

~GL good read :) <<less

"he is just months away from entering university, while she is but in her first year of junior high... "

welp, 11/10 - Wincest King Tachibana

Jokes aside, I'm always up for well written romance novels, especially when there is an age gap, since that usually means there will be lots of societal pressures placed on the MC, and seeing the MC get over that and continue their love is something that I've always enjoyed.

Finally, a story about a reincarnator that thinks like an actual human being. Unlike the protagonists of the many 'reincarnated to play video games' stories, the main character focuses on wanting to help his friends and family resolve the regrets that they had and the chances that they missed. It's definitely a romance / drama, with very little supernatural about it besides the premise, so don't expect anything like that from this story. Read it for what it is: a sweet and lighthearted story with excellent characterization and a realistic... more>> setting. <<less

This novel is for those who like drama and complicated relationship.


the author spend so much time building the relationship between the MC and many female character only to get them rejected by the MC. Also many of the supporting character have complicated relationship, for example one of the MC brother girlfriend cheated on him for someone richer

Its good, the MC seems rational and feels like an actual human. Altho he tries his best, but sometimes his emotions burst out giving him an extra "beliveable" push. I guess thats a cheat on its own way.

Ever heard of too much something and it will become poison?
well in this novel case it's so realistic that you find it missing something that actually make it a 'novel'ty, the main character seems to be distracted by something or someone most of the time, and seems to forget something's actually more important than what he's actually doing, most of the time.

he's been rebirth. Do something amazing with it? 'Meh' "no, i'll just play like other teenager out there while ocassionally help someone else I know in my past.... more>> Oh and I'm obviously gonna be rich LMAO"

well apparently he also lose his IQ with the rebirth, it's sooo irritating. How he act, he's an adult that know what's life like in his past life..
there's this 'only when he play a soccer can he act like his real teenager age' I call bs for that one. He's always was.

i guess if you like a drama and more of a relationship between character and an occasional 'i know something, someone doesn't know' plotline, it's a good read certainly. Which doesn't warrant me rating it 2 '*'

then again it's my personal opinion.
if you want something that goes with a BANG! After mc's somehow gotten a rebirth. Look somewhere else.
if you can get pass that, and just like the 'DoOver' generally, you'll probably enjoy this.

it's just a waste how his knowledge could get himself become much and more powerful, and he's completely satisfied with monkey'ing around.. <<less

Oh wow this is really great. Its a school life novel, love interests and the MC is really intelligent and uses a lot of the memories he has from his past life. Not nearly enough to get extremely rich yet though.

It also gives you this fluffy feeling while also being serious and I binge readed 32 chapters already today.

I absolutely love this story. The translation could be better, but I love it nonetheless. I'm glad that he stays loyal to his love interest and hasn't undergone a complete personality change.

I wish I could give him a hug for the amount of smiles his actions give me. I love his accomplishments and hope it keeps getting better. 😉

Please read.

First things first, you won't be able to find anything revolutionary or mind blowing plot in this reincarnation story. But it certainly is refreshing from all of the cultivating reincarnations as it's set in the modern times. The pacing is ok and won't make you fell like it's rushed or too slow.

The MC doesn't have superpowers or OP brains for revolutionary inventions ect., just his own life experience. Which gives the story a more realistic vibe. And if you're familiar with the Chinese/asian culture around highschool and studying then perhaps... more>> you will able to relate yourself to particular things that happen in the story.

The supporting characters all get an introduction and some background here and there. And although the key supporting characters seem to have their own personalities, they aren't exactly very deep. But that could change as more chapters get translated.

As for the romance, it will not be a harem, (the tag is also not there). The MC only loves this one girl while he does handle the other girls quite good (nothing inappropriate).

The translation is done very well, as usual from Volarenovels. Though it has some minor errors, which is probably due to the mass release.

All in all I think it's a good and solid read. 4/5. <<less
