This time, in order to avoid trouble, Xiong Ye chose the weakest man in the tribe as his new companion.

In any case, he can afford him!

With his strength, he’ll definitely be able to let his own man eat meat every day instead of grass.

Zhou Ji, the ‘weakest man’ who had just transmigrated over from the apocalypse and likes to indulge in eating ‘grass’: “…”

He’s not the same person anymore! He is clearly capable of killing the entire tribe by himself!

This was a pretty decent read if you're looking to kill some time. The novel is very easy to read and there's not really much angst, the characters are sweet albeit relatively simple. However, like many other reviewers mentioned, MC doesn't really face any struggles and is just crazy overpowered but lazy to intervene (although the reason why is explained in the novel).

My only gripe is that MC looks down on everyone too much. He even looks down on ML as if he were some big dog to be trained... more>> and not a partner. Even at the end of the novel MC never reveals his past to ML... Oh well. <<less

It’s quite a good story. My 1st beast type story. But you will be very hungry chapter by chapter lol. It’s a it hard for me to imagine the Xiong Ye role, because he is quite strong at the beginning. Lol but it’s kinda a sweet slow romance with a lot of cooking and fluffy times, As well as fighting and a lot of op stuff. It’s ok for as this is a fantasy novel. Thank you

It's disappointing.

A story can have an OP MC or ML and still be interesting (for example, My master disconnected yet again), but this story's OP ML removes any possible tension and sense of accomplishment. Everything is so so so easy for him. When the other character praise him for his "innovating" ideas, it feels empty.

This novel's world building is very shallow in comparison to other novels that place in prehistoric times (Banished to Another World). The only unique thing about this world was the dinosaurs, but after the ML goes... more>> on his first rampage, the dinosaurs are rarely mentioned. We're just told that they're raising baby dinosaurs. Nothing about the challenges of raising dinosaurs when the tribe has no experience with animal husbandry, just that visiting tribe are so impressed by this.

Also, we're told how Xiong Ye (the MC) did all these for his ex-fiance, Shi Li, who's portrayed as very ungrateful. He's suppose to love Shi Li so much that he's pressuring him to make a lifetime commitment to him since they were children, but in no time at all after Shi Li's rejection, MC glomps onto a new target. All it takes was a few meals and nice gestures from ML, and MC is won over. Yes, MC does treat his love interest very well when he's in love with him, but it's disappointing how easily and quickly MC gets over Shi Li's rejection. His love feels cheap.

I think Shi Li the most interesting character to read about in the story. He is very selfish, but some of it's very understandable.* Shi Li does try very hard to get stronger, but Xiong Ye always trumps him in this life and the past one. In this life, Xiong Ye barely has to do anything to become powerful because ML is living cheat. I think its understandable that over a long period of time Shi Li would feel resentment over this and wants to step out of Xiong Ye's shadow. I though it was interesting to see Shi Li making so many bad decisions because of his future knowledge instead of benefiting from it like other reincarnation novels.

* His character goes downhill once he starts actively sabotage Big Bear Tribe out of jealously.

And, I found it strange that the idea of monogamy would develop in a primitive tribe. Practicing monogamy would be unnecessarily risky with the high mortality rate in primitive times. In a tribal society, where the needs of the tribe always supersede the right of the individual and survival depends on physical strength, it doesn't seem logical that a tribe would organically develop a custom of finding it acceptable for the stronger warriors to not pass on their genes and respecting monogamy. There should be a lot of societal pressure for MC to have as many children as possible to strength their tribe's gene pool.

Anyways, I wasn't looking for plot or good world building, so those two parts aren't that important. And, who cares about logic? That can be thrown out the window too. What I wanted and was expecting was cuteness! Where is the cotton candy sweet fluff? This story doesn't have the silly cuteness of the author's previous novels (A Guide to Raising Your Natural Enemy and In the Future, My Whole Body is a Treasure).

Since I like the author's other novels, I kept reading this one in hopes that it would get better. Bah. In all fairness, if I had read this novel before the other ones, I probably would have liked it more because I wouldn't have any high expectations. It is a solid three star novel. There's nothing particularly bad about it. It just reminds me of those bland isekai novels where everyone loves the MC because of his amazing cooking skills. <<less

I loved how everytime that the chance for people to realize that Zhou Li is not a weakling, they misunderstand something and think that he is just a weakling. It's always very funny ! And the MC is just too cute. He is a powerful bear but still 18 years old and too candid !

I just ended the novel and I have only two words to say : super fluffy !

Its just a really cute story with a lot of (stupidely) cute characters.

Gave this a 2 to bring down the average. It’s a 3 otherwise.

This novel can be described in a single word. BLAND.

We have a OP ML who ensures a smooth path for the MC. This is like all those cliche transmigration stories where the ML teaches the primitive society about progress. Initially, the ML remains aloof from the tribe and doesn’t go around spreading knowledge about cultivation as he wants to maintain the natural balance in the present world. Well kudos to you. But this goes down the drain as... more>> the story progresses. ML ends up becoming “god”. ML guides this primitive society in a direction which he wants instead of leaving it to evolution. Ugh.

The synopsis made me expect a fluffy romance. Unfortunately, the romance is only towards the end. The story is well written and the translation is great. I like the fact that there is no unnecessary face slapping of Shi Li’s mother and brother. The grandpa priest was my fav character.

The main problem with the story is that it fails to create eagerness. It’s a very bland read. <<less

I love base-building stories~! (ノ´ヮ´) ノ*:・゚✧

I love stories with two strong protags and characters who both offer their best towards the relationship and care for each other.

If you love them too, I highly recommend this one!

It's quite difficult to tell who is the MC and who is the ML in this story because both protagonists get pretty much equal screen time and POVs, but regardless, they're very sweet. (and quite pure HAHA) They care about each other and take care of each other. They each offer their own strengths/weaknesses. Although... more>> one protag starts out physically stronger than the other, that doesn't mean he does everything and it doesn't mean the other protag doesn't have good things to offer. I love it when protagonists pamper each other and support each other instead of your typical MC being doted on.

Anyway, this is a very pleasant slice-of-life/base-building read.

The MC (?) is transmigrated from an apocalyptic world and his only dream is to live a nice life (lazy~, eating good food~, having a nice house~). So in the midst of doing that, the MC uses his future knowledge (but with trial/error and not too much of a golden finger) to improve the lives of the village in this beastman/tribal world.


There are some brutal moments/defending the tribe/slaughtering the enemies, etc. but overall, it's very fluffy.

One complaint would be that it can get a bit slow/boring at times because MC is very OP and can pretty much take care of every problem, so there aren't any tense parts. But I really enjoy base-building stuff a LOT so... eh


Great translation! <<less

A pretty easy mtl with like at least a happy pretty typical ending. Nothing was really unpredictable in the story, but there are some decent side characters. The black bellied seme pov is kind of unique, and it made it so the uke had to be a bit generic romantically since he couldn't have much screen time. He kind of throws his love around like a female love interest in an action movie. Always supportive all the time. Just nice or stupid. Overall I found the side characters really enjoyable,... more>> even if the plot was bare bones. <<less

I can't believe I willingly went through this 161 chapters (+20 extras) journey but it's one of the best decisions I've ever made 100% would recommend.

Part of me is thinking "this was absolutely amazing" and the other is thinking "I'm finally free" so get into this at your own risk! Don't if you're not ready to use skimming as a survival tactic when necessary, because my main and almost only criticism of this is that it never ends. So, does it drag? Yes. Does it manage to work anyway? Also... more>> yes.

It's a Wonderful story with compelling characters, excellent plot that will make you cry, laugh and think. It gets a bit slow in parts and tests your patience but once you get over them everything is so worth it. The romance is so realistic and not dreamy at all, the translations is beautifully done and as usual the commentary from our girls at https://chrysanthemumgarden. Com/ makes reading so much fun. <<less

I found it very tormented reading this story in the middle of the night. My stomach grew very very hungry and growl loudly. My head is full of the menu in the story. I’ve been salivating most of the time. In the end I even cant hold myself to dig my fridge while still thinking ways to find those menu in story afterward. I must eat it tomorrow! Arrrggggggggg..... Hungryyyyyyy

Isn’t it supposed to be a cute romance or a fighting story. Why does it become gourmet story??? (Still keep reading... more>> while salivating) <<less

A total package, the characters are unique, the plot and foreshadowing is on the highest level, the character development is visible, the plot armor is loveable, the world background is exceptional constructed. Even at the end, I was both satisfied and hungry for more.

I won't say more, I'm off to read another one of this author's works.

Not a bad read if you have a lot of spare time

Read it awhile back so idr much but like from a certain point onwards pov/focus sorta becomes ML instead of MC which is a bit errr for me. Also MC is like pr strong at the start and ML just kinda aids him to become stronger but like not direct fighting kind of training so

And with all modern day to stone age you'll just get the classic improve tribe life with better cooked food, pottery, and farming which over... more>> time becomes bland the more you read it <<less

I don't really know what to feel about this. But this one is good. Rating this 4.6.

I can see that the MC is an over-all optimist although he had a case of PTSD due to his original world of the apocalypse.

I also developed a love for bears due to this~

He sees the tribe as adorable people. Yep. It's coz they're naive and simple. But he never felt himself superior and respected people around him. Just a little, scratch that, he was a big lazy bum. But hardworking (too much) for... more>> his husband. ♥♥♥ But against all other transmigration stories, this one was so low-key that the surprises are saved for last.

Fudanshis and fujoshis out there (even those tempted to open another door teehee), read this ASAP.

I consider this light, since the rose colored-glasses of the MC made it seem like a brutal primitive era was a place to be meant for healing. <<less

This is so fluffy~!

I thought zhou would be the bottom but in the end it was actually our innocent MC, it also says that zhou is even taller than him


I love this one, this is like a slice of life shounen-ai (since there was no detailed s*x scenes hurhur but only scenes where Zhou wants to pa-pa-pa) I would definitely support the translated version. At 168 chapter its like the end of the story but I still dont know if the author would upload any chapters but we'll see, I hope for some miracle baby popping out

Edit: chapter 181 or last chapter, the author shows how they end up together in the first life. Despite other reviews with negativity towards this, I still think that it's good and likable to most of the bl lovers.

Highly recommend

As I'm not attracted at dinosaurs I was very reluctant to read this one, but oml, I FRIGGING LOVE IT! O (≧▽≦) o 💕 (and well, dinasaurs don't play nothing more than the food role lol)

It's easy to read, funny, and sweet! The ML Zhong Ji is cute and even though he's OP he's trying to lay low as he just want to be lazy and help his little bear to become stronger!

Little Bear Xiong Ye (MC) is so funny, hardworking and cute! He just wants to help his... more>> Tribe, eat his meat and dote on his mate! And both ML and MC just want to live their marital bliss lol.

Honestly I didn't expect to being so in love with it, as I said before I'm not so into dinosaurs, but really it's a heartwarming story. Yes, it has his share of all, and gosh, It has become my second favorite novel if not the first. That's how much I like it.

It's definitely worth to try! I don't regret for a second read this ฅ (≈>ܫ<≈) ♥ <<less

Unique story that is very, very fun!

Also, this is the first translated Chinese novel that I’ve read in a while, WHERE the side characters are memorable! They aren’t made from 100% cardboard. They aren’t comparable to the wide and more involved cast of characters seen from a lot American novels, but it’s still refreshing.

The ML is also refreshing in that he’s not a total creep that controls/watches what the protagonist does the entire time. The villain in this story is still cliche, but is also different from the standard fare.

This novel is very interesting.

This was my first time reading a novel wherein the MC (ML) Zhou Jing transmigrates into ancient times, during the time of dinosaurs.

The novel mostly tells us the story of tribe building and how the MC applies modern knowledge to help his tribesmen.

... more>> To be honest, I didn't see the 'seme protagonist' tag and since I was so hyped, I continued reading the whole book with Google-sama as my partner.

I had a hard time trying to understand who was the bottom or top. *laughs at my foolishness*

This novel is actually sweet and Shi Li (the 'antagonist') is somewhat relatable and has some depth.

Over all, I think that this was a good read, the only unsettling thing for me was in the bonus chapters, it was shown to us that:


Our MC has actually tramsigrated in that world during the time when Shi Li has still not rebirthed.

In that world, our MC never stayed close with the Bear Tribe.

Now, since this was shown after the whole novel was completed, it was like a parallel world.

The MC in that world stayed single but he's seeing what our MC in the 'real' world is doing.

Like being lovey dovey with his wife (Xiong Ye)

The MC in that world felt jealous and began to think what would happen if he were to romance Xiong Ye, since the MC can see that in that world, Shi Li and Xiong Ye are still together but deep inside, Shi Li doesn't like Xiong Ye anymore.

It just made me panic slightly since I'm thinking that if the MC now will take Xiong Ye away from Shi Li while they're still together and expose that he's (the MC) the 'Beast God' in that timeline, then once Shi Li would rebirth.... will things stay the same?

That extra just made me think and it made me incomfortable *laughs* I would still prefer the part where Shi Li peacefully rebirthed and will break off the promise of marriage with Xiong Ye so our MC/ML can have his wifey.


This is actually my first time reading a novel that shows the POV of the Seme since I mostly read BL novels that shows the POV of the uke. <<less

I quite have a good time reading this one, although it's a bit boring as the ML is extremely OP. I'd give it a high score as many events and behaviours happened in the story are pretty reasonable. The story progession itself is also very impressive. The tribespeople are mostly all cute and likeable. Yet I like the story in the extras a bit more than in the main world, as I find it's quite annoying for the ML to just laze around and order people to do things.

A pretty fun novel - I particularly liked the ending of the main novel and the beginning of both the main novel and parallel universe side story

However, there were two major things that reduced my enjoyment of this story.

... more>>

Zhong Ji was a bit annoying towards the end of the novel in his complete disregard of other people. Also, he's so lazy and uses other people so casually, taking it as his due for being so powerful. How is this any different from most scum villains?



I don't particularly mind there being slaves in stories - sometimes it's a historical fact and sometimes it's an integral part of the plot (eg: Captive Prince). However, it was a bit jarring for there to be slaves in this novel, especially by the "good" tribe we're supposed to be rooting for. The author carefully doesn't call it slavery when the Bear Tribe forces people to work for them (or maybe that's something the translators omitted), but that's essentially what the tribe uses to get workers in the main novel. They even treat them like slaves, giving them worse quality food. There's the idea that the slaves have better lives in this tribe than they would otherwise, but that's one of the arguments that the US used to keep slavery alive, and honestly not a great excuse. If they're treated so much better, they should still be given the choice.

I absolutely love the intersection between the past and present with the rebirth of "antagonist" Shi Li and the transmigration of ML from a post apocalyptic world. I also love how the stereotypical shou who is the "homemaker" is broken in this story. Another interesting thing is the existence of dinosaurs.

... more>>

I like how the author also writes about the previous timeline, where MC and Shi Li were married, and how MC and ML still ended up together in the end. It pushes all my happy fluffy buttons >///<


However, as mentioned previously by Fuyuneko, this is definitely a slice of life fluff story. Nothing is really explained as to how this primitive tribe ended up accepting/developing a lot of things, it just happens. I also wish Shi Li had a better outcome, because he really was the most "real" out of all the characters. Granted, because he was the most "real" I also didn't really enjoy reading too much about him. Haha

He definitely wasn't bad, otherwise in his previous life he wouldn't have taken care of his mother or brother. Its understandable that once someone has power and wealth, they would definitely want to see if there was someone "better" Let alone someone with power, most people go through multiple relationships first. Now that Shi Li has power and wealth and has seen more of the world and of other people. It's understandable how he would regret. And definitely with his second chance at life, and actually trying hard to cultivate, it would make sense if Shi Li was upset that he still couldn't beat our MC.

What a scam. Xiong Ye's actually the shou, Zhou's the top.

In all honesty, I like Shi Li (he's just so human, it's really sad how much protagonist halo's and folden finger bring down mob characters) It would be nice if Shi Lin got a nice ending (after all he also put efforts, he's not all talk). I just like his depth, I suppose more than the protagonists.

I assume Shi Lin ended up with a sytem and world hopped, lol.

Not the best but meh. (Tbh thought this is quite the letdown,... more>> I agree with Fuyuneko's review. Also MC's quite the letdown too, he gives love easily, I assume that if Zhou rejected him, if someone was nice he'd quickly love that person... in short, I also mean that MC's love is quite cheap, surreal*not in a good way* and fake) <<less
