The Cold Regent Keeps a Fox as a Consort


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

Eastern Jin’s Regent had icy, jade-like beauty and peerless talent. Rumors said that his admirers were enough to fill 3 entire cities!

The Regent was only second to the Emperor with great power in his hand. He was known for being temperamental and being mysophobic, never touching any females.

One day, a peculiar rumor was spread, claiming that a young fox entered his bathroom and actually didn’t die. Surprisingly, he loved and cared for the fox. He even held the fox as he slept!

You’re a false god! I’m a human. Ah! How dare you turn me into a fox in my transmigration, letting some guy take liberties with me every day? Fine! Since it ended up like this, I will take what’s his, play him like a toy, and bed him…

The translation is good but the MC is annoying me to no end.

She's clearly an animal. Why does she think that the male lead is hers? She does not even know if she can become human again!. One second she is scared that the ML will kill her or she is running for her life or trying to save another fox then the next second she forgets everything and salivates over his looks. Is she a two year old?

First you die, then you transmigrate. Right?

So instead of becoming a dazzling yet misunderstood beauty, you become a fox cub, almost losing your life on three separate occasions the first day of 'foxdom'.

Yep this going to be an interesting read.

An animal MC that's not actually adorable A complete turn off right? Cuteness and fluff is what most ppl expect with animal characters, but not here

I've only read 60 chapters and skimmed some of the 100s chapters, but there's not much happening besides the drama incited by the MC's pettiness and the fluff that's not actually cute. I dropped this novel because....

I've never felt so thoroughly disgusted with an MC as I do with this particular MC (it's weird to think this way since she's supposed to be an adorable... more>> animal MC, but I personally don't find any of the fluff cute). It really rubs me the wrong way when a sadistic character tries to come off as a white lotus character. This is a common trait in female victims, but why make the MC like this? (This type of character is always the most annoying). It's even more frustrating that the novel constantly portrays the MC as the innocent victim when SHE was clearly the perpetrator.

I don't even hate sadistic characters (Okito from Gintama is one of my fav characters), but there's something really repulsive about the way that the MC tries to act like she has a sense of "compassion" when she does things like indulging in animal cruelty (the incident is described in the spoiler box below)


The incident happened pretty much right after the ML meets the MC. It involves a mother and a baby wolf

The MC hadn't eaten since transmigrating and was starving. So the ML had used the baby wolf hostage to coerce (Yes! COERCE!) the mother wolf into feeding the MC her milk.

The mother wolf is forced to watch her baby becoming weaker and malnourished

as the MC drinks the milk without any regard for the tragedy that she's causing.

Although it was not the MC who threaten the mother wolf, but she even more guilty since she benefitted from the wolf's milk at the expense of the wolf cub.

She clearly knew that the wolf cub was becoming malnourished since she was the one who pointed it out, but she didn't even try to leave more milk for the cub. She just continued feeding excessively even long after she fully recovered. DISGUSTING!

How can a transmigrator from modern times be this way?!!!

You know what the saddest thing about this is? The baby wolf wasn't even aware of what was going on and even thought of the MC as its friend (the cub's gender was never revealed). The mother wolf noticed, but could do nothing about this.


Another thing I hate about this novel: it's a typical reverse harem novel in which all the guys just inexplicably falls for the MC at first sight because she's "special" or in this case "spiritual" (whatever that means, the novel doesn't explain it).


As a novel that takes place in ancient China that has a rigid hierarchy and the lower class are treated like dirt, one would think that a transmigrator from modern times would have difficulty getting accustomed to the conservative (and sometimes horrific) customs of ancient times.

.. but nooo. Almost immediately after transmigrating, the ML takes her in immediately and she gets the best of everything. She never has to endure the harsh reality of ancient China's class system.


There's nothing likable about the MC. She does whatever she wants. She takes what she wants. She enjoys getting revenge on people for the pettiest reasons. And who is it that has to pay for the consequences?...

.. the servant class.

This brings me to the next aspect of this novel that I detest.


Most of the villains are the servants and women (basically the people with the least amount of rights). The novels explains their situation and they are just so pitiful because their livelyhoods always depends on the favor of the upper-class men that they serve. Despite their pitiful situation, the author has a weird way of villainizing these people. One moment we're reading about their lowly backgrounds and the next these people are having the most malicious thoughts against the MC. It doesn't make sense for so many people to have such malicious intent towards a baby fox. The common sense of this novel, ugh! *rolls eyes*

So here's the basics of how these incidents happen:

    1. The MC provokes the villains (often stealing food or their valuables)
    2. The villains thoughts becomes filled with 100+ horrific ideas on how to punish the MC
    3. The MC flees towards the ML (or the ML magically comes to her rescue)
    4. The ML severely punishes them (sometimes it's very humiliating)
    5. The "villains" losses their privileges. All their years of hard work are ruined while the MC is safe and has what she wants.

The characters in this novel feel so flat and honestly the main leads (as well as the male rival and the antagonists) infuriate me to no end. The main lead especially just seems to have a one track mind and constantly runs into trouble while never learning from her mistakes. Time and again she gets herself into sticky situations and waits for the male lead (s) to save her.

Only read 7 chapters and I love it already the story seems promising, the ML seems decent (not abusive like in "Wangye, wangfei is a cat") though he seems kind of cold he probably won't sexually abuse the MC when she turns human. Well he's probably a virgin like all cold, devilishly handsome male leads.

I really hope this gets picked up or the translations get released faster. Though it's to early to give a fair opinion but based on the released chapter it has potential.

Pretty sure there's nothing but hot air in the heroine's brain because she is the s*upidest, dumbest, most idiotic heroine I've ever had the misfortune of reading.

... Hm, perhaps there's other heroines who have less brains than her, but I can't think of any off the top of my head right now.

I guess it's not surprising she'd be reincarnated as an animal, but honestly a fox is supposed to be cunning and wily and that isn't her at all. Should have been reborn as a chicken or a fish maybe,... more>> something with a pea-sized brain. That would have suit her much better. <<less

If you can completely switch off your common sense, and simply focus on the cuteness aspect of this story, then you will enjoy it.

This series surprised me by having not one dimensional side characters/antagonists, but zero dimensional. Literally dots. Like, why would you feel threatened about your place in the heart of your romantic partner by a fricking pet?

The male leads, so far, are just that. It is quite very standard fare. Jade greek body with arctic currents around them.

The cuteness aspect of the fox is well done. It is... more>> not overly done, and is done naturally. I am surprised to say this, but the animals in this series have more character than the humans.

In the end, it is too soon to say if it Mango approved or not. However, I definitely wouldn't put this at the top of my list.

As a guilty pressure novel for those who adore the fluff genre novels, perhaps this might find success. <<less

It was a pain in the as* for me to reach here, as I would never abandon a romance story once I read it.

They should put a new tag like, harem-but-not-so-harem or lowkey harem. (Just to be clear I'm not a fan of any harem based story)

Starts out okay and so so, but the MC is damn ridiculously s*upid. She is a freakin human for god sake but really does act and behave like a s*upid 4-days-old chicken.

... more>> Her decision is what making the storyline going, so yeah, pretty s*upid.

She decides she wants the main guy, acts as if he's hers, okat I'm good with that. But! That bird brain of her keeps on doing things contrary to that is what made me furious.

In the case of wan siyu and her on the small wolf, I get that she feels sorry and wanted to do something. Then she fell for the trick and realized that fact, but she still f*ing being docile to nangong yin on ridiculous situation that she could evade. I'm glad I'm done with this.

THE ONLY GOOD THING IN THIS STORY IS, SHE CUDDLES. (Ofc to all f*ing big man that exist in the story) <<less

The MC is childish and lacks common sense, so I find it hard to finish the novel...

Still, kuddos to the translator for working so hard to translate the novel, we appreciate your effort!

God, I know males inside the story love her „kindness“ and hot-headed personality, but really it‘s annoying how she creates countless problems for herself and ML has to get them out of it.

... more>>

She seems independent, but relies on ML to clean up her mess, kindness/pities others that create problems for herself later, I mean looking at that girl, who looks like her, whom she saves from pity. That is a real mess there she created by herself...

God, it‘s deceiving summary, no cute fluff or the like but a real s*upid drama deep mess she creates by herself, a Mary Sue who has all males fall under her and has more s*upid female enemies than herself.

If this was from another perspective she would be the fake white lotus that makes all the man fall for her tears, who cannot survive alone to eat and creates countless problems from the very beginning, aka she is like the original female lead from doomed to be cannonfodder before our Transmigrator Bai accidentally destroys her Halo.

This is soo ridiculous. Fine its cute the animal and its fluffy but does the MC have sh*t in her brain, whats with her thinking process and the ML cant just treat any human like sh*t for an animal. So we have an human soul in animal which is not so human, I bet she was a fool with iq similar to animals in her previous life. A 10 year old can be more decisive and mature than her. It may be a little cute but if you think from... more>> other pov it really shows how ridiculous this novel is <<less

It’s cute, but confusing. As of chapter 14, I have no idea what’s going on at all.

... more>>

Supposedly, the ML and MC have ingested a “love potion” supposedly due to a dastardly scheme of another woman. Frankly, I can’t find that scene. At all. Only the aftermath of the MC’s being intoxicated is shown. Nor does it make sense since the character who supposedly made them ingest the potion is introduced, takes a bath, and is thrown out, nothing more. Where and when did she force a potion on them...?


I also feel really, really bad for the wolf cub, with my impression being that he’s going to die soon because of the MC. <<less

Should’ve checked the reviews first so as not to waste my time 🤦🏻‍♀️

Long story short, MC is more suited to transmigrate as a d*mb chicken than a fox. ML is mf-ing cruel. The supposed fluff that I came for is only MC’s exterior she transmigrated into, the fox body.

This is like one of those novels that is only “beautiful” when told from the protagonists’ stand point and would get another transmigrator to save the unfortunate canon fodders (I’d read that).

Hehe ^~^ The most lamest, idiotic, pretentious, beyond-saving FL award in all novel history (I've ever read) goes to the "Fox consort" (๑•̀ㅂ•́) و✧

I must say... this novel has successfully failed to live up to my bursting expectations and/or anticipations from the time I first read the first few chapters - really its just so disappointing ╮ ( ̄▽ ̄) ╭

Thanks for wasting my time~ (︶︿︶) =凸

I have read the raw. Not finish it yet. This novel is really exciting, I havent sleep for 3 days for this from c88 cant help it when its fun. I stop in chapter 271 I just gonna wait for the translation. Gonna re-read it again c89 up when update in english is available here in novel update.

hmm... it has element of excitement, mystery, love, revenge, change, weak to strong, dumb to smart through experience just so many twist and turn my head hurt from reading google cant understand anymore.... more>> So I quit. Gonna be waiting for translation in english.

For fellow pervert this is for us. Haha but the scene still falls to "decent" not too smutty. Its funny everytime theres an attempt to "eat" the MC its always interrupted in most unexpected funny way. It remind me of "my disciple die yet again" Just that ML always attempt to eat the MC. Its reverve in MDDYA.

Its not totally a comedic novel but there are funny moment that will make you die in laughing.

I love this ❤❤❤ <<less

It was superb in the beginning and a bit further it became good and right after that it started to go down with the bang. All type of loose cannon twists and subplots makes it unbearable for me to continue. I loved the starting though. Thankfully read the spoilers on time.

This must be the inspiration for the empress arc in Quick Transmigration Cannon Fodder's Record of Counterattacks where the emperor is obsessed with a fox. If so, I'm kinda surprised because it seems like the quick transmigration arc toned down how awful the MC is. Or maybe emperors longing to commit bestiality is a common enough niche? Weird.

But if anyone wants some relief, that empress arc was one of the better arcs in that novel.

The empress's son is one of my favorites! I love how common it is for her to take a sort of nanny role and avoid romance at all costs.

The one where she's a female emperor is also great, come to think of it, though you'll want to read a prior arc first, it's the one where a wealthy heiress marries a working class guy (phoenix boy).

Honestly. This is a very humorous book that I've seen and I can't get enough of it. With the fox getting lost most of the time and getting led by some other animal, I'm surprised that she hasn't grown from her previous life. I can only say that she does retain her human qualities but shouldn't she have at least a sense of direction and stop being a white lotus. I know that the MC is a good woman but don't always rely on the man to do your job... more>> of being protected, try to, at least, fend for yourself, especially amongst humans. <<less

I really like these kinds of stories. I don't know why... I just hope we'll see even more chapters getting released in the future. Kinda too early to really judge the overall story. But the premise is there.
