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!

I didn't picked it up for a long time, but it's good I picked it up later cause I can spice some things up in my head without needing it being smut. I enjoyed this read very much. Zhou Ji is really something unique among gongs, but I like him neverless, Xiong Ye is also cute and very lovable. Like the realistic depiction of things in that era, some may not like some moments when their tribe are cruel, but if you think properly that's pretty much well deserved and... more>> that era was where the strong reign over weak. <<less

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 (s*upidely) cute characters.

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

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

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 s*upid. 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've read lots of BL and Yaoi manga but this is the first time I've read a Yaoi novel, and I must say that it got me intrigued on how well other BL novels are written. Maybe because it's my first BL novel so the rating is high, or maybe the novel's just good, I don't know - Overall rating: 4.6.


Setting was prehistoric period, in a valley which served as the tribe's protection from predatory dinosaurs and conquering tribes. Since this was the era of the story, I've conditioned myself... more>> to expect a cast full of simpletons who show what they feel on their faces (in relation to modern men who know how to hide their feelings with warm smiles), and the story did not disappoint me - the characters were indeed a bunch of simpletons, which is a plus for me since it correlates with the setting (if you don't like straightforward and easily-fooled characters then this is not for you).


The MC is a transmigrator from the future (who only has his plant-growing abilities with him, no added cheat like auto-translate language or super strength), so when he got accustomed to his environment, it was easy as a breeze for him to fool people, claiming himself as the Beast God's Messenger (later on as Beast God himself) by using his plant-growing abilities as 'miracles', became an OP person using crystal core cultivation, and be lazy all day and help his ML level up while the whole tribe was advancing towards the direction he points to. Now note that I'm not pointing fingers at him, I'd rather call him resourceful and smart since he's not deliberately harming anyone with his knowledge or skills - he just knew his priorities and how to enjoy his life.



The ML was a strong, straightforward warrior of the tribe, who knows what he wants and sticks with his decisions most of the time (since there were times when he changed his decisions when MC was involved). He doted on the MC as often as he could, firmly believed on the Beast God, and was so shocked when he discovered that he married the Beast God himself - I was laughing so hard during these chapters.



The villain of the story is the previous fiance of the ML, and to be honest, I'm quite disappointed in his character and how he was portrayed for the whole story. From the moment of his rebirth, he was described as a power-monger individual who's only redeeming quality (in my standards) was how much he prioritizes his own well-being and status. I like how he placed importance on his future (though I condemn him for pulling others down just to make himself rise up) but the plot seems to always make him shine as the ultimate loser just so the readers see how he was the "black" and the ML and MC were the "white" in the story's spectrum. He could have gotten a better character development, and the execution of how he always hinders the MC when necessary could have been described using better scenarios, but that's how it is, unfortunately.


For the translation quality, Chrysanthemum Garden (special note to Xiin) is indeed one of the top quality translators, if not the top, online so I have nothing to say except kudos to your team and thank you once again - the nuances within the culture that might be lost in the translation were explained well, add to that the pictures and descriptions of various prehistoric animals - totally love the translation.

Overall, this is a type of novel which you would read when you have a lot of time (since there are many chapters) and you want a progressive story with no deep conflicts (be prepared, it might be boring or bland to your standards because of this) - just a casual narration of the prehistoric life of the MC, the ML, their tribe, and civilization. <<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.

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

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

An absolutely adorable piece! I highly suggest if you like fluff rather than steamy yaoi, this is more shounen-ai.
reasons I liked it:

  • loyal characters: top and bottom are both the loyal type. In this prehistoric setting where breeding is the norm, it’s awesome to read about a not harem coupling
  • consistent: characters remain true to their original character designs, not sudden addition of plot elements, no real plot holes.
  • foodie: I love food, I love stories about food (as long as they aren’t long winded op adventure plots), and I love the joy the characters take in the making, finding, and eating of food
  • fluffy: that’s it really, the whole story is just plain fluffy slice of life for me
Reasons this might not be for you:

  • no real drama: again, slice of life, so there isn’t really any hot bloodied, dog fighting, tear bringing moments
  • no real character development: though I did love the characters, if you’re expecting any character development in any of them you are going to be disappointed. They are what they are.
  • some added unnecessary elements: not really sure if needed or not, but there are repeated confrontations and encounters that stress how amazing, complicated, or detestable certain devices are (I.e. The food is hard to cook right in stone pot)
other than those, very cute story. Read it for the fluff and light hearted enjoyment. Don’t read it if you’re looking for high adventure and smexy scenes.

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

When you're used to face-slapping and smart-edgy characters, reading this is a breeze of fresh air. I think just the fact that this is a romance mlm when in the primitive times, and people capable of transforming into mammals, just that, it's enough. Like, the novelty, you know. Don't expect too much romance, but do expect slice of life. The romance is really really slow-paced, only when the couple doesn't have any secrets between them, can they get truly close, and that's around chapter 100 lol.

Good points

  • Good cast of characters that are very well-defined and interesting, they also go through a series of trials and become better people, so yeah, growth!
  • OP is lazy and cold-hearted at the beginning of the story, but as he interacts with more and more people of the tribe, he beings to see the good in this world. He has PTSD and is used to surviving, no living, so it's really interesting just seeing how everyone slowly melts his heart.
  • This counts as a spoiler but... the roles of gong and shou were just a pleasant surprise, I thought I was fantasizing but no, it really happened, so happy....
Bad points

  • Around chapters 40-50 you begin to feel bored because everything was monotonous. Fear not, it gets better. Just push through it.
  • Um, the part where MC ends up as a God, yeah, kinda didn't like it lol But alright, I can get past that.
  • Don't really have any great complains haha it's a good story to past the time, the best selling point: the novelty of it!
Just read it.

I would give this novel a 4.5; it's not perfect by any means, but I really enjoyed it. It does get a little slow/uninteresting near the last few chapters pre-extras, but the last chapters in the extras brought me back.

You probably won't like this novel if:

You want any amount of smut
You dislike reading a lot about food/cooking techniques
You don't want to read about s*avery
You want the story to revolve solely around the main couple's relationship
You prefer novels where the couple constantly and directly affirm their love for each other

Did anyone else notice the plot hole where the beasts shouldn't be able to speak at all when transformed but then later they could communicate while still beast-ing? Did I just miss a line?

I love this story so much, I'm sorry. I'm addicted to it, I'm sorry. I don't know why, I'm sorry.

Overall, it's a great novel. Everyone have their own opinions toward this novel, so do I.

Main couple is adorable, their interaction are cute, the development is great.

... more>> You can say that my addiction and love filling every loopholes in the novel. You can say I'm blind. But I still gave this novel 5/5 rating and I'm going to read this novel for the 4th time.

I'm s*upid, you can say that, but it's just for my own fun. Read this on you own will, not forced. I'm not taking this story seriously, but at the same time I take it seriously.

I'm crazy, yes. But I just want to leave a review about how much I addicted to this story.

Man, addiction isn't a good thing for your health.

It's really fluffy, but not to the point you will buried under the fluffiness that makes you hard to breath. It's just at the right measure, not too much, not too little. /Chef kiss/

It's like a clean and bouncy bed with a warm blanket and soft pillow in the cold night.

I'm really—AAAHHHHH.

Addiction isn't good for your health.+1 <<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.....

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.
