The Pheromones Say We Have No Chance


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

Luo Zhiyu and Xiao Yan, both presenting in the middle of a gang fight, are carried to the hospital one after the other. One becomes an omega, and one becomes an alpha.

Probably because the two were in the middle of an intense brawl at the time of presenting, their pheromone compatibility is an historically unprecedented 0%.

Other than sometimes fighting and getting on bad terms every time they meet, these two people put together are definitely safe — to the point that when there are not enough hotel rooms on a school trip, teachers put them in the same room.

Teachers: Anyone has the potential to date in high school, but these two definitely have no chance!

The principal catches an alpha and an omega walking on the side path in the evening, supposedly dating —

Students: There is no way, those two are definitely innocent!

Everyone, including Luo Zhiyu himself, thinks that there is no way between them.

And then one day, Luo Zhiyu gets permanently marked by Xiao Yan.

Luo Zhiyu: ? No, the pheromones say we are not compatible, we must believe in science.

Xiao Yan pulls out the new compatibility report, dropping it in front of Luo Zhiyu: Enough nonsense, go steal your hukou identification so we can get married.

As Luo Zhiyu attends his high school’s first year military training, under the scorching sun, second-year Xiao Yan sits in front of their squad drinking iced water and eating watermelon.

Luo Zhiyu picks up a stick and swings it at Xiao Yan for two whole blocks.

As Xiao Yan attends his university’s first year military training, under the scorching sun, high school third-year Luo Zhiyu sits in front of their squad drinking iced water and eating watermelon.

Xiao Yan brings the person into his arms, kissing him against a wall.

I normally don't like to read enemies to lover tropes but I don't regret reading this novel, it's hilarious and really fluffy. I was tempted by periperi's review and I would just like to say that periperi's favorite scene is really hilarious. Just a fair warning for future readers, the current translator BlackBoxTL password protected ch 28 and onwards and in order to get the password, you need to show them proof that you had purchased the novel to support the author I believe. So either be prepared to mtl... more>> the rest if you somehow can find the Raws online or purchase the novel (according to the translator, the novel is pretty cheap) . :) (I may sound kind of bitter but I understand that we should support the authors and the translatiors have wonderfully translated 27 free chapters so I'm thankful for that. I'm just kind of sad I didn't get a warning of this before I started. Sorry if this complaint is kind of a first world problem. ^^;) <<less

Ngl kinda annoyed I wasn't pre warned about chapter payments... I'm not against paying to translators but it kinda came out of no where and broke the tension while binge reading....

Urg yet another story I won't know the conclusion to.

Maybe I'll come back later and buy the chapter unlocks but from the process I saw it was tedious to unlock... SMH.

You have to buy original version and pay through either Ali pay or WeChat to read the rest of the translation.

Now let's talk about novel.

... more>> It's an fluffy and funny one. MC knows how to dig holes for himself and the ml. ML is not a Saint either, he keeps provoking MC. Side characters are fun to read too. And the strange type of pheromones just add another fun to read.

One of the thing I don't like about the novel is that author kept Emphasizing that their love has nothing to do with pheromones and at the end report says that they have high match and it's natural to fall in love???

Anyway, it's a good short read.

A small rant at the end:

This payment thing really turned me off. It would be great if there was another option for payment. It took me a long time to log into the site of original novel and when I was finally about to pay, I realized that they only two paying mode, we chat and Ali pay.

Since I have neither of them it made me turn off and all my enthusiasm flew away.

I wish someone have warned me about this, so I would hand mtled it from the get go. <<less

im so glad someone's picking this novel up! This is one of my fav abo and fav campus novels out there. Its made me laugh and then long for love on equal measures, and was a gratifying read in the way the best slice of life novels are. The author is very good at slow burn rivals/enemies to best friends to lovers, at displaying the depths of a relationship, and at writing charismatic, believable, beloved characters.

minor spoilers:

... more>>

god they're SO DUMB AND IN LOVE. I love them. Lzy will break all social norms of omega alpha interactions and be obscenely forward (by the world's standards) with xy, but it's fine because their pheromones dont match! Wearing his jacket? Visiting him at night? Anything a proper omega would never do? It's fine because it's not an alpha, it's xiao yan. The pacing is so well done, too, because by the time they get together, you realize (and thank god!) that you still have more chapters to go with these two.


i didnt want this novel to end. I wanted to keep living these sweet hs (and college) years with lzy and xy. But when it ended, I felt satisfied, which is a lot more than I can say for other novels

the mtl was pretty easy, but im very excited to read alongside a translation. <<less

What a gem! A healthy, bickering relationship that's really sweet. It's also really funny with many misunderstandings but not the irritating kind because it's mostly brushed off as impossible since they are considered incompatible (backed by science! It's so scientifically impossible between them, it's likened to an AA or OO pairing, that's why their peers and teachers really view them as romantically impossible).

But when I say funny I really mean funny, one of my favourite scenes is ... more>>

when Xiao Yan is doing his health class quiz that's basically common sense because the question is like "if an unmarked O ask an A to go out alone, what should the A do?" and the ans is obviously to reject and JUST as he was about to write the answer, Luo Zhi Yu pops by and literally goes "Ge ge, do you want to go play?", stunning him. AND HE GOES HAHA, stunning his classmate. So they all go "oh, real life and situational question must be different", so all his A classmates go and choose "agree" except him (cos common sense) and they all get punished by their health class teacher and look at XY sadly and he feels bad so he goes and join them in punishment LOL. There's just so many well timed comedic moments that made me laugh, their dynamic is just so good.


There's no dragging in their romance also, up till their confession. So it's just fluff the whole way. Their families are supposedly enemies but there's not much conflict there. The side characters are nice, but they are mainly in the background, special shout out to the fierce A that's catnip (HAHA).

Lastly, I liked how their secondary gender is not pushed in the faces of others but nicely integrated in the world building such as, health classes! I liked the xiao hong and xiao lan questions, those were really funny. And other than the pheromones aspect being mentioned, there's really no over mentioned of it like in other novels with A being overly aggressive or O being weak or what not. Everything is just, well normal students here.

Overall, this is just a really funny fluffy story that's easy to read! <<less

Cute and comedic romance novel. It's extremely refreshing and in-depth, I absolutely adore the author's writing style. The characters are all unique and the dynamic between the MC and ML is unmatched.

First of all, it's enemies to lovers! My favorite trope in the world! This novel highlights the bickering but healthy relationship between the main characters, I just love how their relationship with one another and others are so well written. It's a beautiful campus rivalry to romance, everything is more realistic than other danmei novels. Of course, there will... more>> be stretches compared to real-life relationships, but I loved seeing the highs and lows of relationships that was shown here.

Both characters have flaws, societally and personally. The MC is an omega, but he is brash and brazen, the forward one of the two. He doesn't act the way people expect omegas to act. He also has a bit of a temper and can act out rashly at times, but I think that makes his character more believable. It's the perfect amount of personality to show that he has his flaws and can act out, but he's not overly-exaggerated to the point of borderline abusive.

They are themselves and are not defined by their secondary genders. I think this is what I love about this novel, the author has incorporated the ABO setting without bringing out your usual ABO cliches. It's masterful. I recommend this novel to anyone that desires a genuine and beautiful romance. <<less

It's finally getting translated! It's one of the first novels that got recommended to me as a good novel with ABO dynamics.

It's fluffy and comedic, so I laughed a lot while reading this. The characters are amazing. I'm terrible at remembering names, but the characters were really vivid and memorable, and I have no trouble remembering the names. The romance is nice with a good pacing. There were honestly parts I had expected to be repetitive, but instead the author stopped it before it started getting tiresome, which pleased me.... more>> Their relationship developed really naturally without being really awkward or cringey for me to read. The characters aren't s*upid or dense, and it makes the novel a lot better. The MC and ML are decent as human beings and as lovers. I don't see the ML doing anything I'd consider "forcing", though the MC does struggles when the ML does some ABO stuff to him (not in a way that he is refusing seriously, so no problem, though it could be something that some people don't like reading, so I thought I'd mention that). They are Xiao Yan and Luo Zhiyu, not alpha and omega, and I'm happy that they have a personality because of who they are, and not what their s*x is. This is a school-life romance with little focus on other stuff like schoolwork, exams or rejection from family, so if you're looking for plot-oriented BL novels, stay away from this one.

Basically, give this a go if you like a novel with decent ABO stuff in it. I'd say it's definitely a good read, though maybe it's more suitable for teen or younger audiences rather than people who have spent a decent amount of time dealing with relationships. <<less

Love this cute story. Standar setting about rival become lover in abo world. But it's full of comedy! The main cp always bickering and run to each other in every possible way. They can't miss to trouble each other for one day just like you can't life if you not breathing. Their rivalry passed down from their parents. Well, not serious things. Just a rivalry in the same bussiness field, kinda neighbor who likes to compare their children be like, your son so Fierce my son is good, better to stay away. Plus how the main cp actually have a zero degree match pheromones that make people think that they are impossible together.

... more>>

But actually the main cp have pheromones that belong to high level degree. So theirs can't be measure with the basic tool. They actually have perfect match degree and they know their situation in the morning after accidentally do permanent Mark. And.. What comes in their mind after know this is how to steal hukou book from their parents


I like how their friends and teacher believe in science even though the visual evidence is so real. There's no drama, the storyline is very light wrapped with comedy and sweetness. Their misunderstanding just like between kindergartner kids. And, there's no potential third party. I love it! <<less

Brilliant Gem! 5 star!

One of the best healthy relationships!! It's a pure enemy to lover troops. All included, no r*pe, communication both ways, consent from other.

Both characters like usual young boy that still rebellious and mischief. No feminine MC, no beautification filter MC (the author sometimes explains that MC is beautiful but not too much).

It's describing story about boy who loves a boy like in reality. Fluffy and slow-burn story. Don't forget the comedy that author included. The interaction between them was what usually people do. Bickering, joking, a little... more>> teasing action, a little attention and care, no controlled by pheromones. The Abo in story only makes the story became sweet because I like it when u can mark what are yours. Plus the dependence after marking 🥴


they fall in love without pheromons, they talk when both of them sober and still in ill-fated condition 0, 00001% 😂

Even after they do the deed, MC still rationally sulked than crying because he was left behind alone, trapped in home without a broom 😂


Their story at school makes me jealous because of how funny, interesting, and comfortable they are even with so much regulation and supervision.

What I don't really like is the people around them too focus on the test result and didn't believe with what they see or what they thinking. But that makes this story happen. So just ignore it xixixi 🤣

So many things that I want to explain, but better to read it directly!

I know some people must be lazy to read this story because of the locked chapter. But this story is worth it. If u don't want to unlock the story then u could MTLed, it's still acceptable.

Give it try and u will love with all characters! <<less

One of those plots where you can probably guess from the start where it's going to go, but is still enjoyable the entire way through. The two main characters start off as "enemies" and are always fighting, though I will say that the fighting is honestly pretty restrained and from the very start there's a slight undertone of care and respect behind their antagonistic front.

The main dynamic is one of a clueless MC and a ML who takes slight advantage but doesn't take it too far. While ML technically makes... more>> the first move, their feelings are very much in sync the entire time and they're both very communicative to one another. Their texting dialogue with each other was really cute too, as they're both just portrayed as normal high school boys.

ML also did really surprise me with his characterization at first as I expected one of those typical cold and perfect characters, but he ended up being surprisingly multi-dimensional and lively. He actually plays along with MC and even instigates fights himself, just to get a rise from MC. I appreciated just how equal their relationship felt, something pretty rare to find in ABO.

The comedic tone is more restrained than in some other novels, so while it did make me laugh, I wasn't in full body convulsions on the floor or anything. It's a slightly cliche story but the pacing was good and the omegaverse element was woven really well into the narrative. Definitely recommend this one! <<less

This is a pretty good story, I love enemies turn to lovers trope all the more if it's a childhood type of stories. Just sad that I can't finish it due to restrictions of the translators, in which I completely understand why they did it. Anyways, it was a good read even if I only a read a chapters.

Ah. It's been a while since I last read a novel and finish it at the same time! Although I read it thru MTL and havent read the extras yet.

So I've found this out because of its manhua and I didn't regret binge reading this. One of my favorite genre, ABO, and CONSENT and RESPECT was a thing!!! This was so enjoyable and hilarious to read because of the misunderstandings lmao. This was light, and refreshing to read. I also like the fact that 'phermones compatibility' didn't stop them. Gad,... more>> it was so wholesome and heartwarming,

specially when they reminisce their old days in the final chps

Lastly, they know how COMMUNICATE aaaa. Both leads are so adorable wuwuwu.

Definitely a great and refreshing read !! <<less

It's a high school romcom and one of the best because I thought the A/B/O concept in a school setting plus childhood enemies to lovers setting is really interesting! I laughed really hard at every chapter and all the taunting and bickering between them is just the best.

I really like all the MC and ML's friends who are all along so trusting to science which ended up pushing along their relationship.

... more>>

I particularly like how they tried to test the waters after developing some feelings for one another and how the whole confession was panned out. Even the temporary markings were very well done. I was shocked when Xiao Yan knotted Luo Zhi Yu on their first time and then found out they were actually 99.999% compatible all along. I felt so happy for them as I thought it was heaven made.


It made me think of why my school days wasn't as fun as theirs. Truly a light hearted read that I would recommend anyone who wants a fluffy, healthy relationship read.

By the way, the teachers are all very interesting too especially Mr Wu. :D <<less

This is my first time writing a review, I created an account solely to review this novel.

The description/summary hooked me in completely.

I'm a sucker for fluff, modern setting, and the enemies to lovers trope so this was right up my alley. Honestly, I could've just left a 5 star rating with saying any comments but I have to share my thoughts. I LOVE THIS!

This is too funny, and its been 3 days since I last read this but I still keep remembering the scenes and dialogues. Its the type where... more>> you keep checking if it already updated or whatnot. The side characters are funny as hell, its a very cute story in my opinion. The fact that its ABO makes it a hundred times better. I haven't MTL (pls im new to the danmei pit, I dont know where to start) the remaining chapters like the others did but I can say that this novel would not disappoint.

I think you can have fun and lift your mood with this after reading a bloody drama novel. All in all its funny, fluffy, and healthy. <<less

3.5 ★ out of 5

The first chapters of this fun rival-turn-to-lovers read are pretty good, but the middle part of the story gets repetitive. At the start I loved how both leads were extremely petty high school boys, and I loved how feisty MC was. Unfortunately, at some point the story progresses to a point where they aren't exactly rivals and that's where I thought the story got too repetitive. It was a lot of "the health guidebook says omegas can't do X" followed by our omega MC doing X... more>> to the alpha ML. There is also a lot of "MC did ML's homework and they got caught", and a lot of "MC is perceived as a f***boy A" because of MC causing misunderstandings. It was funny at first but as these settings were repeated it got old fast.

Also, I wanted to write a review to offset some of the previous comments about the proof of purchase; *yes* it takes some time to purchase the raw chapters, and *yes* it is not free. It is up to you whether you want to go through the process, but just know that it isn't all that complicated or expensive! There are plenty of tutorials found on the Discord group and it took me about 30 minutes to finish the process. <<less

As expected from this author. All his works are really enjoyable... It's a cute story, with fluff, a problem that doesn't drag on, and an epic resolution...

I've read three of his previous works, and I can say he's a master of the comedy genre... Light school stories, teenage problems, youthful love that's not overdone...

I liked how they got together without having to 'muddy' their past...

Except for the lack of translation quality that I found, I had a lot of fun with this novel.
