This is basically ''My Favorite Manly Husband'' but like, , , better written and more entertaining? I'm not even into ancient storylines but this made me feel interested in the ancient farming practices more than MFMH did.

Short Summary: Eldest Jiang dies and Jiang Zhen transmigrates in his place; realises that Eldest Jiang lived a miserable life so he separates from his shtty family and takes a wife. His wife is a ger, in this world there are 3 genders: Men, Women and Gers who are like men but who can... more>> get pregnant.

Our MC was a soldier in modern times so he takes many things by brute force which is honestly so entertaining. Watching him take things makes people think ''Wait is he crazy' but later everyone, including readers, realise that he actually only took what he deserved. He isn't too OP, he has many shortcomings but his fast rising actually makes sense.

I liked ML, Zhou Jinge, but istg he makes me angry with his insecurity. Yes, obviously I get why he's like that and it is understandable so I'm not holding it against him but I still go '':/'' whenever he feels like MC will leave him. So much so, I kinda started shipping MC with other people. (DW tho as MC doesn't look at anyone but ML). Like, Jinge, baby, it's been 100 chapters. Your tofu got eaten by Zhen regularly. Please stop getting nervous every time a ger approaches.

Spoiler

Pregnancy: chapter 87

They'll have a baby girl!

[collapse]

I've read 100 chapters in one sitting and it's currently my new fave. It's like a classic showbiz novel but with ancient themes lmao.

Would recommend.

Edit:

Spoiler

I should have rated this book 2 starts solely because of Shen Anxin's ending. What was the reason? The novel is superb but why? Even those 2 lemon stealing thots got relatively ok ending, why Shen Anxin ended up like that? Would still recommend btw and I'm not changing my rating but if I knew my Anxin didn't get a happy ending I wouldn't have rated it that high.

Quite unique, it is the gong that is the MC. Plus it's in a farming/poor countryside setting. MC reincarnated to an ancient time and fell inlove on this ger who had to forsake his ger identity & do laborious work. Take note that he is called ugly bcos it's norm for ger people to look soft like a woman. In their eyes he looked like a scary buff amazonian Mulan. In the first chap, the revenge entertained me while waiting for the mpreg. Finally preggers at chap60.
Spoiler

They were in the middle of out of town business when the ML's belly started getting big. His robust pregnancy is even manly ?. They had a baby girl that will make anyone smile. And oh, they have one son and one ger later.

[collapse]

As for the MC's occasional violence, it's dumb to judge him because of that. HE'S A SPECIAL FORCE SOLDIER. And he's stressed to death in this new world and he could only cope with the only way he know. His attitude of "If you don't touch me, I won't touch you" is IMO already being tolerant of the slag people coming at him. On the other hand, he is gentle and considerate of the people that genuinely care for him, like the ML.

Spoiler

ML has very low self-esteem but I love how he is possessive of MC and drives away the beauties away from his husband, like an empress ? Against the harem. The ML has eyes only for him tho. But MC figures that nobody could understand his modern aesthetics so I guess that's why he never felt the need to tell anybody about his transmigration and decided to live this second chance at life. He isn't OP but his new little ideas like card games etc made him wealthy.

This novel is really great, I MTL-ed most of it, and I absolutely love it! (I didn't MTL it to the end because my break was over, not because I didn't want to read it any more)

    • I love the MC! He's a real man - brave, hard-working, smart and strong. He is not a Mary Sue - all the 'modern world knowledge' he has is the stuff a normal person would know. It's not a magical golden finger that helps him dominate ancient world. Even when he does something that ancient people couldn't even imagine doing, it's not something a normal modern person wouldn't think of.
    • ML is absolutely adorable! He is considered ugly for his masculine looks, so he has an inferiority complex. He is also a simple village person whose whole world consists of a small village and fields around it. Despite this, he is not lost when faced with a pursuer from modern world. He is very curious and does his best to learn things he doesn't know. He is also very sincere towards MC and always does his best to treat him well. Because he is considered 'ugly', he is often discouraged when faced with his 'beautiful' love rivals. But he genuinely wants to be with MC, so he gathers his courage to defend his place in MC's heart. (Which is somewhat funny, because MC is too gay to even look at those girls and feminine guys)
    • The setting is really unique! It's not a world of 'mansions, swords, brocade and hair ornaments', commonly used in ancient world novels - instead, it's a world of mud houses, field-work, thin rice porridge and fish. The palace intrigues and eloquent poems are replaced by fights over one or two eggs and wooing people with a basket of fish. I found it very interesting and at times hilarious.

I mtl'd this for 2 days. It was a light read that makes your heart feels so fluffy and warm. Of course it isnt perfect but it doesnt have angst, there were drama created that I think was well made.

So about our ugly shou, he's called like that because he looks like a manly (not the muscle man but the lean type guy) man even thou he's a ger (man who can give birth) so in the eyes of the people inside the story he doesnt look liek thr proper... more>> standard ger. He's actually handsome.

I gave this 5 star because I really like the world build up, it may be fast paced but it made me happy. <<less

Just wanna say something

ML IS NOT UGLY NOR BEAUTIFUL, BUT HANDSOME.

Okay so the ML is NOT Ugly. It might be misinterpreted but he is not. The ML is a ger, which should be pampered and treasured. In this current period, people indicate that a ger should be delicate, feminine like a women. But the ML is not like that, he looks like men (normal ones), which then everything became controversy.

... more>> There's like 2 different things between a ger and man.A cinnabar in the forehead and they can get pregnant. That only~

I don't understand why some gers' are called ugly, like ML, just because they are like men, handsome, with those flesh and muscle, tight buttocks (state's in one per line killed me when I read it in the novel; MC said it to ML) and with those of goddammed bulky build.

As a guy, I never liked feminine men at all and like for me men like the ML are totally the beautiful ones, and this for me is totally frustrating.I keep feeling guilty and annoyed by the fact that ML kept calling himself ugly, just because others say so!

Stop it please.

In short, the ML is not ugly but a ger that looks like men, and that gers should be feminine with delicate features which doesn't apply to ML, which then people misinterpret the ML as stated, "Ugly".

ML is totally MC's type and like strong men like ML and that people keep saying that ML is ugly which really make me wanna chop someone right now.

Probably one of my favorite "ancient" rebirth stories on NU!

This novel reads like a shounen/leveling up/base-territory-building genre (the BL version) in the ancient times. Except, unlike in other ancient rebirth stories, our protagonist really is dirt poor. No hidden identities here.

This story is truly about the lowest of the low eventually reaching to the highest of the high!

... more>>
Spoiler

As in, founder of a new country!

[collapse]

And, it's really one of the most unique and entertaining novels I have encountered in this genre.

In ancient China, poor people were very easily oppressed by the upper class because of the complex interwoven relationships between the nobility (as well as their crazy harems = consolidating power). Big households would have tens-to-hundreds of "s*aves" (indentured servants), and there's little to no class mobility. Pretty much all the officials were corrupt and it's crazy difficult for a dirt-poor commoner to live well in historical times. One of the only ways for a poor person to climb up (and this is not for the dirt-poor) was to become literate, take the national exams, and try to get a high score and become a government official.

HOWEVER, our MC does NOT take this route!

This novel is completely creative and while some wild things do happen, it's done within reason of the historical setting. Instead of being reborn into a wealthy noble or scholar's household, our MC starts as an "old" dirt poor villager looked down on by everyone.

From there, the path is rocky.

MC doesn't have any family connections (much less with government officials), doesn't have any miraculous wealth to lean on, isn't a genius or scientist or doctor, and doesn't have any magical powers.

Not only that, the MC has baseline morals. He doesn't slaughter people without cause, doesn't condone s*avery, r*pe, pillaging, and only retaliates within reason. In the ancient times, modern morals are hard to keep and gaining power with morals is even harder.

Thus, the path our MC takes towards the peak of life, is an incredibly satisfactory read.

(This is also one of the few CN that doesn't spend every paragraph describing the ML/MC's beauty and sees humor in the historical fact that constitutes as "beautiful" changes depending on the historical and cultural context. It's awesome!)

A couple things to take note of:

Spoiler
    • The MC is not someone who's good at speaking (which is what most ancient novels focus on), so he will straight up beat people up (without harming them permanently) instead of trying to "out-wit" or "out-talk" them. This can be jarring at first, but it makes a lot of sense because he's a modern ex-soldier guy... not a politician.
    • The focal point of the story is the MC, so even though he's gay and marries the ML, the ML will frequently take a backseat in the story: for example, study quietly at home or raise kids at home.
    • Though the ML becomes very competent over time, it's still a much longer struggle for him because he's a native of the ancient times and has to learn everything the MC naturally knows (or common modern knowledge), so it takes him longer to adapt. He's frequently stuck in a state of "my husband is so cool so OP!!!" and "oh god I'm not fit for him, I need to learn more!" This can get a bit frustrating if you like reading about equally strong MC/ML teams (though the rebirth in the extras super makes up for this!!!! so in the end even I was convinced haha).
    • There is a very competent love rival in this novel and I am not a fan of how he turns out. The love rival, who started out super cool and independent, turns into an extremely small-minded/ jealous/ backstabbing/ paranoid/ incompetent person. In ancient novels, most love rivals get r*ped/destroyed, and something similar happens to him in this one. The author backed away from adding any more brainless extended plotlines (thank god), so his wealth/family doesn't get destroyed. I'm just not happy about the jealous r*pe-retaliation plot that ancient novels somehow HAVE to have.
    • One of the later encounters is with ancient Japan. That arc got a bit disquieting because the ancient Japanese culture becomes pretty much assimilated and obliterated. The text lightly touches on how awful it is to conquer a country and destroy their native culture, but here is a warning for those Japanese lovers out there... wheres my sushi tempura musubi udon ramen katsu miso okonomiyaki soba
    • And yea, the MC is very upfront about his bias and dislike for the ancient Japanese people : (
[collapse]

So far the translation is edited MTL, not terrible but too literal/clunky at parts. They've done all right for the early chapters (which are simpler), but the later parts are more complex. I read the raws (in Chinese, not MTL) starting chp 36.

Highly recommend this and the author's other works, especially [Stone Age Husband Raising Journal]. <<less

This novel's author also wrote

A Guide to Raising Your Natural Enemy which is

much more lighthearted and their characters are much more likable and cute. This novel is just full of negativity and drowning in contradictions that are so convoluted that you can tell that this author is just desperate to villainize the Jiang family in the worst way possible. There's really no world building. It's just the MC getting revenge and building his wealth by taking everything from his family. The "fluff" that everyone talks about is the MC doting... more>> on the ML.

The MC abuses his status as a professional fighter to torment a civilian family.

The MC is an "all brawns, no brain" kind of guy. He boasts about his profession as a special force member from the modern era, but he acts like a terrorist to force the family to give him what he wants. There's nothing calculating about his moves, it's just straight up violence. For this MC to claim he's a special force member and actually use force against civilians is just low and completely slandering the name of the special forces.

One thing I hate about this novel is how they depict the "villains" in the worst way possible so that the revenge is justifiable. The logic of the "villains" gets so convoluted that they're contradicting themselves. Their actions are inconsistent with their beliefs.

  • It was explained in ch. 1 that this mistreatment is rooted in the "unlucky" circumstances of his birth. If this family is so paranoid about "bad luck" yet many of their actions are unlucky (abusing and causing death)
  • For example, the original owner died of starvation the day of his younger brother's wedding because his mother forgot to give him food. What could be more unlucky than a family member dying on a wedding day? The family mistreated him due to superstition, yet ironically they did something so unlucky.

    This

    author is just so desperate to villainize the family

  • As for the "unlucky" circumstances of his birth, I think this is just a sorry excuse for irresponsible parenting and poor pregnancy planning. He was born in the "month of evil" (May). His father was summoned for military service and the mother almost died from childbirth and had no helpers. Superstitions huh? Why couldn't they just asked all of the villagers to help out with the birth to prevent all these complications in the first place? This is just a case of the author ignoring logic for the sake of setting the stone for a revenge novel.
Since the original owner of the body died of starvation, the MC should have been considerably week right after transmigrating, yet he was strong right off the bat. How could a starved person suddenly have the strength of a healthy person? This shows that the MC transmigrator had an unfair advantage (that the original owner didn't have) to begin with.

Spoiler

I found it very disturbing how the commentators were supportive of the MC threatening an old woman (the mother of the body he occupies) with a knife and beating up his uncles.

Sure, these ppl are evil. But they are civilians.

He eventually demands an exorbitant amount of money from the family (40 silvers. His family had 60 silvers at their height) so that he could separate from them and live with the ML. His rationale is that this is compensation for all the unpaid labor he did for 10 years.

I didn't rate this since I dropped the novel. <<less

After the void left by finishing Stone Age Husband, this is my comfort! No doubt they are from the same author!

MC is a bit brute but he's a special force soldier who knew nothing about relationship as he didn't have one in his first live, besides he was dealing with PTS of some sort and then was dumped to a different era with an abusive family. I think what he did to them was very mild, all things considered. He could very much kill them all, and I would not... more>> have objections.

He's caring and doting towards ML, and occasionally eat his tofu lol. And he's caring towards his in-laws. Their interaction as a family is heartwarming, and shows his eagerness to be part of them.

I like too how he's somewhat struggling coming with ideas for getting money, instead of magically becoming rich. He's not poor but he's not rich! He's being smart with what he had and how to make a bit more!

It also doesn't hurt that the translator is very good! Thank you Translator! ? <<less

I absolutely love the book. I was getting tired of it always being the shou's point of view. I didn't have to put up with the unnecessary bullying, the faceslapping that comes much later or the shou being bullied by the gong unnecessarily. I stopped reading a lot of novels because of this. Jiang Zhen was very straightforward and Jinge was quick in picking himself up, with no pity parties.

I think the thing that stood out to me the most that I have yet to see again was a matter of the MC making sure that the ML had a good childbirth experience.

MC specifically made sure that his children would not grow too large in the womb. He ensured that his children would get adequate nutrition but would be a little undersized at birth so that the ML could pass them thru easily at childbirth.

MC eliminated the high risk of passing an oversized child that results from over indulging... more>> a pregnant person, maintained adequate nutrition for both mother and child, and supervised and took charge of childbirth to further eliminate risks like improper hygiene or a flipped head.

To me, this was a great act of love. The MC valued the ML above all else. To the point that unless he could ensure a healthy delivery for both ML and child, he would not want children. He was originally gay and had accepted not having biological progeny anyways. <<less

I loved the story and the extras are quite lovely as well. I read the first 30 translated chapters and then read the raws.

This is a story about Jiang Zhen, a gay military guy who gets shot and wakes up in the body of the most mistreated guy in the village. When he wakes up, the body is starving to death, so he calls for help and in comes our other MC, Zhao Jinge, a handsome guy and saves him. This handsome guy who fits Jiang Zhen's tastes perfectly however,... more>> happens to be a ger, so other than Jiang Zhen, everybody else thinks Zhao Jinge is ugly, because gers are supposed to be pretty and delicate, in their opinion.

The world Jiang Zhen wakes up in is similar to the ancient times of our world, except there are 3 sexes instead of 2 and the place where Jiang Zhen wakes up in is a village where people depend on farming and planting to survive.

Spoiler

They are both super poor, so they flirt by giving each other a fish they caught, or an egg they saved and their dates are about eating lunch together secretly while hiding in the bushes in the forest. Super adorable.

[collapse]

The story is mostly told from Jiang Zhen's (gong) point of view but it also tells Zhao Jinge's (shou) thoughts as well which makes you feel a little frustrated yet think it's absolutely adorable at the same time, because both main characters are quiet people, so they have some little funny and cute misunderstandings. They do communicate well though. They won't ever hide things from each other and do talk to each other when it matters which saves us from suffering anxiety because there is no angst.

The couple does get together pretty quickly, so the story is mostly about the world building and our mc's plans to ensure his and his loved ones' futures and its execution and not so much about how they get together. It was quite the interesting story and I enjoyed it a lot. <<less

I'm going to be honest, the reason why didn't give this a rating is because my mind just went blank after finishing this series. There are some decent aspects to the story but by the end I just went like WTF.

The characters were... fine, I guess, but I mainly have three gripes; the ridiculous domino effect of the plot, Shen Anxin, and the xenophobia.... more>>
Spoiler

The MC went from being a simple abused and starved farmer (with the original background of a special ops soldier) to the freaking ruler of his own established country. The entire f*cking time, the MC was doing his own thing and trying to be business man at the bottom of the barrel and the author gives me this! I already found it ridiculous how his wealth accumulated; it accumulated the nearly the same way one woman in real life is trying to get a house by bartering her way up from a hairpin. It's an actual rags to riches plot.

Shen Anxin... what did they do to you? This was a secondary character that the author- for some reason- turned into a peach blossom and later into a crazed black lotus after being gang-raped... Why?! The development of this character was so pointless! There was so much plot potential for his character further down line but the author literally scrapped him in the most wasteful way possible. He could have served as another powerful ally to the MC but instead he was barely a love rival to Zhao Jiang and most critical thing he did was accuse unfilial piety against Jiang Zhen. His character was not necessary for this plot development, the Jiang family could have done that job! His character was used in the plot the same was a pen is used to open the lid of a can.

Sigh... f*cking xenophobia and forced assimilation sh*t nearly at the end of the novel. The idea of assimilation is super freaking prevalent by the end of the novel that it got me super pissed off. It reminded me a lot of the xenophobic and religious intolerance of China in real life. I ended up comparing the novel and realizing it kinda gave me the same vibes as the fact that China has concentration camps to reform its Muslim population and has been confirmed to have forcibly sterilized Muslim women. Ugh....

This is my favorite novel right now. The MC is so shameless in chasing after the man he likes it is cute. I like that he has decided to pick up the role of crazy person in order to get retribution rather than suddenly coming out as some great genius. The family deserves what they get for abusing a child and for ignoring him being abused.

This novel constantly appeared on my recommendation. Idek why I havent started it. Maybe it cause the synopsis is not that appealing. But istg when I first read it like I was like aaaahhhh. Why did I constantly avoiding this. This novel is pure. The MC (gong) may seem scary at first but fear not he is very loving to his wife. If you do not seek trouble w him, you may live in peace. The face slapping is so satifsying. And how he awkwardly flirted w his wife make... more>> my day.

The ml? (Uke) is so cute. He is regarded as ugly because of his appearance that are like man. I love his internal monologues. I get it that he is insecure and I love how he tried to overcome it. He is just one cute lil thing.

Overall, its a slice of life. The conflict resolved quite well and the drama is settled quickly. The first part may revolved around him and his wife but afterwards its mostly abt his business. <<less

totally worth it. Usually I tire easily when machine-translating novels but I ended up finishing it before I knew it.

The novel is Fast paced, maybe a bit rushed before the ending as it would have been nice to see a bit more details as it was near the beginning. The world building is complete and immersive, the characters are many and well thought of, the ending doesn't leave openings and it answers all the possible endings beautifully. You can read with a peace of mind.

Since there's no summary yet, I was planning to write one after I finished the first chapter, but so far it's just briefly introduced the MC and some setting. All I know so far is that our MC transmigrated into the body of the unlucky/hated eldest son of a wealthy family who starved to death.

The translation quality is good.

This is one of my favorite stories in the danmei category. The gong being the MC is like a breath of fresh air. His adventures and struggles in a little different ancient time makes it very enjoyable. I like that he is a decisive and a straightforward person, especially when he was romancing the shou in the first few chapters.

There's only a few of this good gong-is-the-MC novel these days I suggest to give this a try.

The ending will make you feel very satisfied.
