The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love

Description

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

An internet troll who wanted attention, the reader criticized his favorite web novel, saying: “The protagonist is dumb and the author is stupid.”

Author: “… Got it.”

Unfortunately for him, the author actually listened to his (troll) feedback. The formerly lighthearted tale of a cute harem master suddenly became super dark and edgy. The reader could only helplessly look on as the the protagonist was abused and betrayed, finally embarking on the road to becoming completely evil. Everything was a mess!

After that the reader transmigrated into a strange world. How come the person in front of him looks like the protagonist (evil undead version)? Just what is going on?!

Note: Du Zhe (读者 meaning Reader) and Du Ze (杜泽 the character’s name) sound almost the same

I am a fan of m-m, yaoi and bl novel but this book just not click for me.
there are many little things that made me annoyed.

MC language are a f**king turn-off. Whenever I was about to be pulled in this magical world, I got a pull out by'The Moe lord', 'Some silly cute person' like Every Damn Paragraph. It's fine at first but repetitive using got me frustrating and it was annoying as hell. I tried to replace these silly pronoun by 'He', 'Du Ze' or even 'Xiu', the reading was way smoother.

The plot was rushed. The protagonist upgraded his power by awakening his bloodline. No training, No cultivating. Not buying it.

The plot armor was ridiculous.

The romance was badly written. MC was straight man who fell for the protagonist (man). I normally love this GFY trope if it is well written; it's my jam. But MC feeling toward protag remained in brotherhood zone until the protag confess to MC then Boom!, I'm gay for you baby. Not buying it. When the fuk did you develop your feeling? When you want to turn a straight man gay, it takes a lot more than just being abused (Lich experiment), guilty (for the fate of protag) and the look of the turner.

MC personality is a kill-joy. He's that kind of guy who is cluelessly stupid, not recognize a love flag despite it being waved in front of his face. His mindset was also annoying too, It was full of irrelevant garbage I didn't care about and not one bit important to the story and the emotional development of the character.

The repetitive using of silly phrase and pronoun. As mention above, a couple of times, it was funny. A hundred of times, it got real silly. STOP IT.

THE RAPE SCENE. Me and rape DO NOT MIX. The one in this story has less damage because at least MC and protag have had s*x before but it is still considered RAPE still. Just reading it make me wanted to drop it right away. MC got double f**ked by two d*ck, no lube, no stretching, his hole was even bleeding. BIG NOPE. At least protag had taken the consequence seriously otherwise I would drop this.

The s*x scene was mediocre too. Maybe it's because of the author skill, but I got no vibe of love coming from the two. One was physically aroused, while the other only want to possess and conquer.

Is there anything more satisfying than reading a LN that's already been completely translated? After getting into the BL LN genre, I picked up TRAP (haha) from the rave reviews and the tantalizing "Completed" tag. I'm here to add an irritated and confused review, or basically a would recommend with many complaints.

First off, as an obsessive fan of the King's Avatar, Yi Ye Zhi Qui?? Come on, that's obviously a reference to the gaming God. Not to mention the Thousand Forms weapon that the ML has. Much appreciated reference to... more>> my favorite novel.

Thank god this novel was completely translated, and done quite well, bc even though it was translated, it was still the most confusing novel I've read yet. The novel shifts from the MC's viewpoint to the ML's viewpoint to the original story to other things and it's just really hard to keep track of what is happening when they change. From some context, you can usually figure it out, but it can be pretty annoying. I would echo some comments that I've seen where the MC needs to get out the fantasies and the plot that he originally read, especially since the characteristics and conditions that they have are now different than before. That being said, he is an obsessive chunni so it's pretty reasonable, and when he does realize it, it's much improved. My biggest annoyance is the constant use of the hearing aid battery trope. The author keeps on making MC's hearing aid battery run out and then do some important discussion/talk that he has no idea what he's doing, to increase drama and confusion. Please. You've pulled that many times already. I got tired of that by the 5th time. Luckily it was less used in the later half of the novel.

Don't be fooled by the Comedy tag. This is basically a really dramatic tragedy for almost the entire story, with how much drama and raw emotion that happens between the MC and ML. God, it's almost disturbing sometimes what happens. For someone who loves generally amusing and comedic (often cultivation) fare, the angst is so strong you can almost feel it clawing at your heart and mind. Sigh, why are all of these MM stories like this.

That being said, this is a beautiful, beautiful story. Throughout the novel, there are so many yandere parts of the ML that were insanely emotional and heart wrenching that I reread multiple times. (Chapter 29, a total favorite) Black box comments are amazing, they just have so much raw emotion in them and it's just unbelievable. Adorable, but disturbing. I'm not sure I would like to read another book with yanderes tbqh. The MC in general is really cute as well, I love having tsundere MCs who aren't actually the annoying tsunderes (I'm thinking Toradora rn), but the MC is able to grow and interact adorably with the ML. The romance is definitely the focus here, which I am all for. I cried torrents of tears close to the end, that's when you know the emotion is so real it's physically painful. The story is also so meta that your brain starts to hurt. Would recommend, with caution. <<less

This story is so amazing!!

At first it seems kinda 2 dimensional with a touch of comedy, but with time the characters really show their true worth. There's a reason for their behavior and once you learn their backstory, everything makes sense. It isn't just a stone faced MC and a yandere ML. This people have depth and there's reason behind their behavior. Plus the side characters have personality and aren't just there to fill blank space. They each have their own role and help the couple move forward one way... more>> or another

Story pacing is great. Doesn't seem rushed and the two have time to develop feelings instead of going from nothing to love at the snap of a finger. There are so many ups and downs and they face so many emotional and physical trials and you can really tell how they grow and learn from each one.

The author really does a good job answering questions in a way that doesn't seem forced. Why does the MC go to this other world? Why do they (MC and ML) behave the way they do? How does MC have the 'cheat ability' he has? How does this one thing lead to this other one much later on in the story? It gets answered!!
I love love love this story and I would definitely recommend this to others. The translation is top notch too <<less

This story is amazing. The main character is relatable, funny and surprisingly sweet. Watching him warm the heart of "you know who" is such an uplifting experience. The story moves fast and has a nice mix of humor, sorrow, action, mystery, and of course romance. I'm so glad I stumbled onto this. BC Novels is so quick with translations. The writing is clear, plus the notes at the bottom are helpful. I also love all the drawings included in the text. Just go read it, you won't regret it.

Highly recommended for BL lovers.

This novel is super duper fun to read. Interactions between the MC and ML are great!!! and the MC is sooo adorbs and funny makes me wanna fall inlove again and again with this novel~ (-ㅂ-) / ♥ ♥ ♥

I love how clingy the male lead with the MC (not to mention being yandere most of the time which hit one of my strike zones lol) ¯_ (ツ) _/¯ . Also loved how the mysteries surrounding the story was solved near ending.

I love this novel - not only is it extremely funny and cute, but the way it keeps playing up the tropes of the webnovel genres is fantastic. The relationship between the two main characters is wonderful, s the perfect marriage of two people who are equally socially inept but in different ways - Xiu has lost all understanding of positive emotions but compensates by being increasingly possessive of the only thing that makes him happy while Du Ze is both deadpan by nature and too preoccupied with cursing the... more>> author of the original story to notice his own feelings.

This is a novel for every person who has ever read a harem novel with one too many heroines. After all, who needs an elf princess/demon queen/beast girl/priestess of light/childhood friend when you can have a cute guy who is deaf part of the time and hilarious all of the time? <<less

I'm usually a silent reader but this novel is so good that I just can't help but confess my love. (I'm very picky with characters) Not only the story has character development but also character building, you can easely simpatise with the MC and ML trought the their backgroud. I'm giving 5 stars for the characters, the plot and the pacing of the romance.

warning: the relationship is not really healthy (personally, I have a weakness for possessive ML - I really love them)

~ sorry for my bad english

I really really really love this novel... I only eant say that this novel is really good plot wise as well as romance wise and the MC and ML are very likable. Despite being cold and ruthless to others Xiu is so gentle and sweet to Du Ze.. (though very Yandre but a good one). All I want to say is this story is really worth a shot and deserves 5 rating.

I have read the raws till the end even if its machine translated which means some sentence doesn't make sense. But even with that the case it still managed to keep me reading till the end. I think what charms me was that the relationship between the two couples and the story. We have a seme whose love is very obsessive and possessive which can came out as not charming. However the way I see it the ML character gives out a unique charm because aside that it matches the... more>> plot, the ML personality differs between 8 races and the two personalities are present but does not contradicts each races own stereotypes that has been set up. The main character (uke) is the most unique. He does not possess combat nor magic, he has his own skill but it does not help in the most dire situations. But in those situation is where he truly shines. Personality wise he is the opposite of ML and very loyal towards him. The relationship between MC and ML is not instantaneous at first and as the story goes their relationships progresses slowly. Along the way not only do the love between them are being develop, their character also changes. The plot is pretty simple and interesting. There's also a bit of mystery that doesn't leave it left unknown and were revealed later on. The author thought everything well through and one could ask why the ML fell in love with the MC in the first place? Or why the MC would fall in love with the ML? If you began to read and pay attention to the details the author provided when the two are together added the background the two main protagonist have there you'll find that why they are meant for each other. I would definitely recommend this and for others to give this novel a try. <<less

This novel is a true pleasure to read. Once you start you will not want to put it down because you will become obsessed with what the crazy duo of the MC and ML will do next. Will the MC and ML closer? Will the ML level up? Will there be a new rival? As you read more the more deeply you become entrenched with the unique characters and the twisting plot.

The translator does a great job and I cannot wait to finish reading!

Simply one of the best that BL stories that I've read so far.

The story plot in and of itself is quite unique from the start. While other BL reader-transmigrates-into-mob-character-close-to-the-villain, this one is different in that it skips the reader (Du Ze) into the period where the original novel's protagonist has suffered the worst betrayal... one that he caused. From then on, knowing that he was the cause of the protagonist's suffering, he stuck by his side and devoted himself to the protagonist. In turn, because of this the protagonist became... more>> posessive of him and eventually fell for him.

Although the protagonist, like any other chinese novels, is overbearing and mostly unreasonable, he listens to what Du Ze has to say. He doesn't just discard his thoughts.

The development of the romance between the two flows quite smoothly, and in regards to the plot, I have no qualms over it.

Another good thing about this is the translation quality. The translator does a good, consistent job of updating chapters. The translation itself is really good, and there is nothing I can nitpick about it. The added pictures from the manhwa (manhua? I'm not quite sure which one is the right one...) of the novel is awesome too.

All in all, I give it a good five star rating ^^ <<less

I like it. This is one of the few novels I really look forward to updating. We have our darling family's reader who is socially awkward due to his hearing problems falling into a world of a novel he is absolutely tsundere about to help the moe lord whom he had accidentally sent from a golden hero path to a dark villainous route. Add that the moe lord, all eight forms of him, is a total yandere for our reader, I completely ship these two.

I'm not saying this novel will... more>> be for everyone, please read through all the tags before proceeding, but I completely enjoy every bit of this novel. The story is imaginative, the characters are amusing in their own ways, and the translations are superbly done. We are, maybe, forewarned of what is to come between our couple and I'm all "noooooo" but I really look forward to how it's going to end.

So don't be scared away and give this a chance. It's always good to try new things (with an open mind) ! <<less

He would go asking himself why the plot isn't how he read from the novel after he reincarnated and met Xiu in one of his many forms, which was an undead if I remember correctly, around after he was betrayed too many times by the human race. Btw, protagonist (Du Ze)

is deaf. So he has to use a hearing apparatus that I don't really see a lot of novel protagonists' wear, unlike Du Ze.

The story worth attention, don't drag, don't lag and surprises us.

The translator and editors do a great job actually releasing a half of a chapter per day! It is really great. As it is written in the official review: The main POV character is an ordinary person who got transported into the world of the novel he was reading. There he encounters the protagonist...

It's a story of the struggle of the reader, who encountered the truth of life of the books MC, after his thoughtless comments about the books plot to the author made a huge damage to the story. He feels guilty, he sympathize with the MC and tries every way possible to revert the harm done to the MC. It is a bit silly, but interesting story.

Revised at ch94
Nothing much occurs after ch30, many repetitive actions, many ch with s*x, abrupt and predictable end. Not so bad, but not 5/5, changed it to 3.5 <<less

While the ML's backstory is tragic (due to the MC) their interaction with each other is cute and amusing.

MC (with a permanently stiff facial muscles) who trolled the author and got a black ML transmigrated to the world of ML due to a doujin and foolishly (accidentally) stealing the lines of the other characters. At the end of each chapter the author shows an excerpt from the "novel" which shows how the appearance of the MC within the novel changed the story thus we are treated to sight of seeing... more>> the progression of the MC's value to the ML.

At the same time we see how foolishly and endearingly oblivious MC is towards the burgeoning feelings of ML. In this novel we have two characters whose EQs are low and yet terribly self-conscious.

This novel is basically the novel version of a well-written fluffy, hurt and comfort self-insert fanfic. <<less

It's a very funny novels. The characters are interesting. Character development of the introduced characters have been very nicely done. I'll not give any spoilers. It's a good (kind of explicit in both the smexy way and the disgusting way) light hearted BL. 100% recommended ;)
