Regardless of how optimistic and sexually deprived the MC was (he even drolled when he thought of the ML after seeing him for the first time), it could have been good but the ML's extremely weak personality (a perfect example of a doormat) was a deal breaker. He does not even have the ability to fight for his rights. He was also dumb enough to give his earnings to his family after returning and promised to support his parents even after they consented to his brother marrying his... more>> former betrothed. They were that disgusting including his brothers and the ger but he's still very concerned about their reputation. He's basically just plain dumb and worthless. Not worth my time to read. <<less

Okay. I finished reading this.

Spoiler alert!!

I have read a lot of farming novels with the same plot like the MC was from apocalypse world and transmigrated to the ancient time but this one is the worst story so far I have ever read.

... more>> The antagonist did not even get their retribution. The author also keep on adding conflicts yet the former problems were not even solved completely. Also, the author tend to do time skip and it hurts my head because I got confuse with the time skip.

Also, the MC suddenly became useless after giving birth and he loses suddenly his qualities when he was surviving in apocalypse.

The MC and ML relationships are not described enough and it feel like they became lovey lovey to each other so fast. It was a quick love.

There's also not a lot of business for the ML and MC. Since the MC is from other word, I have expected a lot from him. I read other novels where they became rich because they have a lot of source of income but this one is quite the opposite. Aside from the grocery store and the wood carving of ML, they do not have other source of income.

Let's just say that I regretted reading this. <<less

Translator here.

This review is not about the novel but more of an introduction to the translator and some disclaimers 😊

This is my first ever translation work, and just want to notify the readers that the translations are done using the google translate (apart from the first couple of chapters which were based off of MTL website) as I'm not fluent in Chinese. English is not my first language too, so there might be some errors. I would really appreciate you could point them out so I can fix them and... more>> bring better reading experience for other readers.

Another thing is that, one or two (max) chapters throughout the entire novel will require you to go to a different link to read and that's because I'm trying to make sure the efforts I put into the translations would not be easily stolen by the aggregator sites.

I hope you don't think I'm annoying by doing these 😅

I started doing translations since April of this year and it can be said that I'm fairly new in this. Please correct me in the comments if there is anything you think I should have done better or anything you want to say ☺️😙

Thank you so much for your support.

Love,

Thingyan <<less

I like this novel. It might not have a new concept, , but I believe I won't ever get tired of fluffy novels. The novel is a transmigration into another world's medieval time. It includes golden finger, mpreg, farming, and so far its easy going. Hopefully it will stay as a soup for the soul (fluffy) novel. It starts out a little bumpy with the protagonist getting used to life there, wishing to leave an easy life, but finds out he has to get married soon.

ehhh it's fine. the MC is a laidback transmigrator; he leisurely opened up a small grocery store while ML did some woodwork, no crazy business whatsoever. oh, I was a bit uncomfortable with the scene changes. there's also a character that made me go ".... ok whatever happened to him?"

Spoiler

ml's third brother was spoiled and arrogant. he was a scholar who kept failing his exam but for some reason had an unfounded confidence that he would succeed, eventually draining his family's savings. he also married ml's then fiancé while ML was in the military. the buildup was nice, I thought his wife would divorce him because he was just so entitled and useless. but in the end his wife was mentioned in passing that he gave birth to another child. wild. even a canon fodder character who commited adultery had his own extra (his new husband was nice and didn't care that he previously got expelled from his ex-husband's village because of adultery).

another confusing thing was suddenly a woman appeared in this world that only had men and gers. she gave birth to a daughter and died. then the baby followed soon. like?? what was that fooor? lolll it felt like reading a discovery of strange species and then the specimen died and then?? nothing. that was funny ngl.

well, at least chen qi got his happy ending. his family forced him to divorce his wife because they thought his wife was infertile. they married him to another ger and later that ger cheated on him and got pregnant. chen qi finally reconciled with his ex-wife who sent him a marriage proposal after he knew chen qi was already divorced. I honestly don't understand why he didn't explain clearly to his family that he was the one who was infertile and proceeded with his second marriage and angsting for yearrrsss. guess if the ger didn't cheat on him he wouldn't do anything hhhh

There isn't any significant farming or tension in general; nor any point for the world building to be as it is: might as well just have it be a heteros*xual couple in the real world as "ger" individuals are treated like women, often using she/her and the titles of auntie and wife.

I hope this reaches the translator because I can't comment to any of their posts huhu.

Hi, I'm writing this comment for the 3rd time because omg I don't think my first 2 attempts were successful? Anyway, first of all. I'm a new reader and I'm currently binge-reading this novel. What I like about this novel is that it's very light and comfortable to read. The characters are likable, but the absence of women feels weird to me (well, this is just me and my issues with misandry HELP). Regardless, the... more>> novel itself coupled with your good translation quality, made it really enjoyable! Thank you so much.

Regarding your issue with aggregating sites, I think you can combine texts and image (your current format) to deal with it. Like, you can post the 75% of your chapter in text and 25% of it in image. That way 1.) Your readers' reading experience will somehow go back to normal 2.) You can protect your work without compromising its overall quality. I've seen lots of translation sites do this method to protect their translations, and I think it's quite effective.

BTW your consistent updates is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. THANK YOU SO MUCH 🥺💕 <<less

Almost done, there's just one chapter (plus the extras) missing, so it's finally time for my promised review :D

"The ugly ger's farming story" is a misleading title from my opinion. But let's start from the beginning to explain this.

Our MC of this story is Xu Qing, an orphan who just graduated from college when the apocalypse arrived and by chance awakened a spatial ability which naturally included a spiritual spring. He joined a team and one day while gathering supplies, he got separated from his team and met a horde... more>> of zombies. Afterwards he found himself back in ancient times as a 20 years old orphan who lived alone as a hermit outside the village. This is the beginning of the novel, so there are no spoilers to speak of.

This world didn't have any woman, only men and ger. MC learned from the originals memories that ger were men with the ability to get pregnant [I] (the term ger 哥儿, literally translated means "brother", often also seen as "xx ge'er" in conversations - just as an information for those who are still unfamiliar with the term) [/I].

The original was two months short of turning 21, and very shy and reclusive because his whole face was covered in pimples, which caused him to become famous as the "ugly ger". Naturally, this wasn't a problem for MC at all, thanks to his spiritual spring.

More pressing was the matter of marriage rule, which stipulated that ger who were 21 years old or older and men at the age of 25 had to be married. If they didn't marry before reaching the respective age, they would be matched by the government. Thus MC decided to recruit a husband. Meaning the husband marries into MC's family instead of the other way round where MC would join his husband's family.

Our ML is the 2nd son of the Li family, named Li Changfeng who spent the past 5 years in the army and only returned when the story started. Because of many annoying matters happening in his family, he agreed to become MC's recruited husband, much to the dislike of his family.

Here's a spoiler about what matters happened:

The Li family consists of the parents and their children, which are eldest Li and his wife and two children, followed by ML as the second son, the scholar Li Laosan (old third) and the youngest child, a ger called "Li Xiao'er".

Spoiler

Our ML Li Changfeng had a fiance named Wang Li, the most beautiful ger in his village.

His third brother Li laosan whom I love to call "third moron" (you'll know why I call him as such if you read the novel) went ahead and wrote ML's name instead of his own into the military recruitment, causing ML to be sent off to the army in his stead before ML even got the chance to get married.

As soon as ML was gone to serve his 5 years of military duty, Li Laosan secretly ran to the Wang family behind everyone's back and proposed marriage to his future sister-in-law. Since he was a scholar, the Wang family naturally agreed instantly, not caring about the original engagement to ML whatsoever. So ML's third brother and his fiance got married, without any problem or rejection from both the Li and Wang families.

Naturally, that moron very happily wrote a letter to inform ML about it. When ML returned, his fiance had become his third sister-in-law who had already given birth to a child and ML became an outcast in his own family. His parents were biased to their scholar son, and Li Laosan constantly made trouble by scolding ML and insisting for him to leave the family. Naturally he didn't get rebuked or scolded by the parents for this at all.

[collapse]

So far the introduction of our main leads. There are also several important side characters, for example the neighbors of MC going by the surname Xie, ML's youngest brother who was also a ger, ML's best friend Chen Qi and many more.

Now let's go back to the issue of the misleading title. Although this story is a slice-of-life, the part about farming is almost non-existent and at most only mentioned in passing. The plot itself revolves around the marriage of our main couple and their relationships with their family and friends. In this novel you won't find much drama or dog blood, in fact you won't find any at all, just a nice and relaxing story about the daily life of the couple and those close to them.

As for the "ugly" part, I've already said it, MC remains "ugly" for the first few chapters and then becomes especially handsome. No surprise here, so there's nothing much to talk about. The fact that MC came from a post-apocalyptic world also doesn't have that much influence on the story, it's mainly out of convenience to explain away the existence of the space (which isn't used much) and the spiritual spring water (which is just mentioned every now and then and used by MC in secret to help his friends when they are injured or sick).

I've read other reviews, and if you did so as well, you may have noticed people talking about the sudden appearance of a woman in the story. I won't say much about this, only this:
Spoiler

this person is first mentioned in Chapter 104. With Chapter 105 being the end of the main story, so you can imagine the influence of this to the plot. Correct, there's no influence. So you can basically just ignore that. At least from my POV, as I can't understand the author's thoughts on why they suddenly added a woman to the story [s] (especially since I haven't read the last chapter or the extras, because my dearest YanYan hasn't uploaded those chapters yet xD) [/s].

Edit: As I said, the woman appearing at the end of the novel for ONE chapter has no influence to the story itself. She also doesn't appear in person but is just mentioned to MC as an oddity.

[collapse]

Now what am I thinking about this novel?

Nothing much, I love it. It's a very relaxing read about the daily life of Xu Qing and his husband starting a family, while having to deal with ML's natal family (a bunch of idiots, especially the parents!!! And except for the youngest brother), ML's best friend Chen Qi and the Xie family who supports MC and basically treats him as their own son.

I can't count just how many times I've read this novel until now while waiting for Thingyan to finish their translation. And even after the translation is finished, I'm certainly going to read this novel several more times, because it is just so good!!

If you like calm and relaxing slice-of-life stories set in ancient times, come join us!

Last but not least, I want to express my thanks to Thingyan from Hololo novels for working so hard all the time. I've followed the novel since the 15th chapter was uploaded and am impressed on how serious and hardworking they were while translating. There was no instance where suggestions or corrections from readers were dismissed or ignored and YanYan actively responds to any matters that may or may not pop out.

I really enjoyed watching how the website developed from the beginning until now. Although the beginning was quite bumpy regarding the set up of the website (fonts and all that stuff), as time progressed the translation as well as the website's appearance got better and better and right now I can't complain about anything. Old chapters were edited, and are very easy to read, so it's just pure enjoyment from my side! YanYan, you did great, thank you so much! <<less

I was excited for this story as it had a transmigrated MC from the apocalypse, magic space and farming.

Welp it was a quick let down. It starts with the MC adamantly denying he will ever want a kid as he is a guy. Next paragraph is him staring at laughing kids envieously wondering when he will have a family. Wtf that was a quick whip lash turn around.

The MC is really naive and forgetful for someone who survied an apocolypse. Every person that stops by he cooks new dishes for... more>> and offers recipes.... for free. He and the ML has no money concept and just gives all their hard work away for free. [ML makes furniture for the villagers for free!] They both deserve to be poor with that horrid habit.

Lastly the MC barely used his space or magic spring. He was in constant pain or discomfort after a rough night with the ML and spent days after sitting around in said discomfort..... like he forgot the healing spring in his space completely. The MC had such a huge advantage of the space/spring and modern knowledge and did nothing. All in all a lazy unmotivated naive MC that has no concept of money. <<less

It’s a very... light read? (Most of the time) There are not many ger novels and many complain about this genre, but I really like it ^^ And this one is quite good~ (I’m probably not as satisfied because of my own preferences)
... more>>
Spoiler

Well, there are really too many side CPs here (I mostly drop novels with side cps ahdksj) but since it’s a rare ger novel, I still continued haha

One of them, the little ger brother of ML... he’s really so precious and he was so happy at first, but... did he really have to suffer so much O-O his third brother hit him and he became deaf for a while (without knowing if he’ll ever recover) his family never protected him, never blamed the third brother, nothing... so yeah this little guy was really heartbroken! After some time he found a great husband, he got pregnant, and then?! The wife of the third brother was pregnant, slipped, the little brother wanted to help, slipped with him, both fell and both miscarried... wth... really, he got pregnant again way later but that really was a heavy blow. If I understood correctly, he didn’t even let ML and MC near, in case something happened and he miscarried again... must have been so traumatizing... He really didn’t deserve this ah QAQ why make him suffer authorrr

[collapse]

What I quite liked was that
Spoiler

he didn’t use his space ability very much, except the spring water. And mostly only help friends or his own family. And I also liked how MC accepted becoming a „mom“ so fast. Because, yes I can understand that anyone suddenly in his situation wouldn’t be able to accept it so fast and adapt, but... tbh it’s really a pain to read about them struggling and fighting because of this. I just want to see them be happy ah... anyways, I liked that he adapted fast haha I also liked how ML didn’t make MC tell him everything (about the space etc) idk, if MC wanted to tell, so be it. But I also like the attitude of ML not caring, but just caring about the well-being of „wife“ and children~

And so funny~ ML is so nice and caring and soft towards MC that I always forget, that he had an cold and uncaring personality towards others hahhaha

Oh!! And what else I kinda liked, was that MC didn’t sell all those future inventions. He made use of it to help his family lead a stable life, but that’s also it! When he those stones to make ice cream or whatever that was; ML reminded him not to let others know, and he of course agreed! Idk but seeing him wanting to lead a simple life, but that fame and riches is also quite good to see~ (Not like some other MC buying more and more land, plating more and more stuff, with all those fruit trees etc haha not that I’m complaining tho~ Those novels are of course good too!)

[collapse]

What I couldn’t understand tho was
Spoiler

why, in the end, they added the appearance of a woman (with b**bs and all that). She got pregnant and had a baby girl and died (the girl apparently lived on). So yeah idk what was the point? Maybe bc I mtl-ed it, so I couldn’t understand, but yeah... I wonder why)

[collapse]

All in all it’s a good novel~ do give it a try^^ and the translator is doing an amazing job~ thank you for doing this! (I mtl-ed it and... let’s say, I’m glad I understand a little Chinese... but it’s still a little hard) So yeah! Thank you! <<less

This is such a weird novel. For me, while great as a slice of life its was really lacking. I will break the novel into 3 parts.

1. Author's writing. We have a man transmigating to a ger world with a modern world, apocalyptic zombie type past, and a space that can be used to farm. But we don't see this past being utilised anywhere in the novel. Not even when there is a drought or any other situation really. The space is used mainly in the beginning for a short... more>> time, and that's it.

Honestly, the author may have used the trope, but if it were just a modern man transmigating there, it would have been the same.

Also, quite a lot of inconsistencies with fleshing the story. Like Aunty Xie is childless in the beginning and then they have a child later on.... which takes us to the second point.

2. The characters. The MC and ML. In the beginning, the ML is described as kind and not smart, but in the next chapter after the MC and ML get married we see a completely different man. A cunning, hard-to deal-with, as described by his friend, man that gets his way when he wants to. So, how did he end up in the situation in the beginning do tell....

Sometimes their callous behaviour towards their neighbours and family just left me annoyed.
Spoiler

"oh my friends wife run due to feeling sh*t she couldn't have kids. Oh well, nothing I can do now let's wait. " And weren't they right, immediately the next day the ML went to help, the wife had returned home. Look, my other very good friend has problems with his wife leaving the house after his parents suggested he get a concubine due to not having children but who are we to interfere? Man, just what?!

[collapse]

3. Lastly, while the translator does a good job (the 2 stars are completely for the story not their work, the over-the-top watermarks, wrong order of chapters (37, 38, 39 (you press next and it skips to the next after that), and the ones when they get married and some previous) made me doubt my comprehension of reading and I had to find the original text to make sure it wasn't me (or the author).

I really appreciate their work, I do, but there are other ways to protect your work than writing a dozen times read on x site, when I, as a reader, am on x site etc.

It was okay, the zombie apocalyptic previous life didn't play a role other than his cause of death. The author gave him an amazing space ability complete with healing spring but barely used it.

There were a few plot holes, not much actually farming, bad writing style and a lack of any real motivation from the MC.

MC was a let down, he wasn't bad in character, but he had so many resources and knowledge that was wasted.

ML was meh, typical cold, only loves MC type. I did like that he took... more>> care of his younger ger brother.

The side characters were wack. The friend Chen Qi story line was messed up, Chen Hong (CQ's brother) story line was random, not sure what purpose it served the story. The adultery couple with the extra was wtf, the Dr and XY was okay. The ML's family was confusing and s*upid. XY's ex's marriage, I mean he was a fart face momma's boy but he didn't deserve to be beaten, DV is not okay.

I did MTL over half of it which was confusing at times about who is who, but I don't think I will re-read this even when the translation is completely out. The way the author writes just annoys me, the random skips, the telling the reader how things are instead of showing, bringing in random characters that serve no purpose, etc. Not to mention author seems to think all fat people are gross, mean, and unlovable <<less

105 chapters of filler content. I regret reading this novel to the end. I was waiting for the good part, that never came.

The whole story is rather 2d and all over the place. It doesn't feel planned out. There is absolutely no progress.

MC and ML stay farmers in the poor village and all the story is a bit of slice of life and lots of small minded gossip.

Mediocre and disappointing.

This is actually good. Everyone has their own life. It's not the kind of MC who is always involve in everything like the world centered them. MC doesn't shoulder every f-kin thing. He doesn't need to be involved in everyone's life. Because the side characters have their f-kin life, they own it so no one needs to dictate.

Everyone is an individual. They don't revolve on MC.

Some people will come back to your life. Will betray and break your heart. Will be obsessed but will move on. Some wants to have their own life that no one can control. There also be someone in this world that loves their family to the point that they will kill them self if there family is all dead. Some people waits for their love.

I'm really enjoying the novel so far. It has everything I look for in a novel like this and I'm in love with the side characters. I'm not super invested in the main charcters but that may be because I haven't seen enough of them to make them stand out against a sea of similar novels. I have only read what has been put out but the translation job is amazing. I'll definitely edit this once I get to read more of it.

Translation is good, as you understand everything and the translator made it clear they are not a native speaker and added context where needed.

The story is good for a lazy day where you just want to turn off your brain and read a slice life that doesn’t stress you out, as there are no troubles or third parties getting between the lead couple.

the 3rd brother never got his comeuppance. It didn’t have to come from the 2nd brother but that useless pos should have faced some sort of retribution. Same goes for his useless spouse, who just existed to do nothing but be a reminder of how awful the 3rd brother was.

Also a little enraged
Spoiler

about the inclusion of a woman into the story, just for the purpose of her being r*ped and her and her baby dying. I know MC realistically couldn’t do anything for her but he didn’t even try. He had damn space that could vanish people into it, he could have at least tried to use it but nope.

  • not a single character development arc in sight.
    Spoiler

    our MC and ML get together as soon as they can and immediately act like they’ve been a couple for years without even any depth to their relationship. We don’t see them try to get to know each other or experience any hardship that could make their relationship go beyond just having s*x every two chapters. As a result, their relationship is lackluster and a drag to read about. They do the same thing every chapter, they always fall into a routine. Side characters have done more than they have and actually have at least a little backstory or whatever to explore their character. Might I mention as well, none of the villains are ever properly or cleanly taken care of.

    [collapse]
  • surprised nobody has bothered to address the elephant in the room. Poorly disguised sexism and misogyny.
    Spoiler

    having r*pe happen as a plot device and it’s not handled delicately or AT ALL. You’d think i’m exaggerating but the author showed it to us all blatantly for us through the appearance of a woman. She was r*ped by f*cking unknown people and died giving birth. But, as a matter off fact, the mere handling of the first case of r*pe with xy says enough. Such questionable morals and character.

    [collapse]
  • despite the title, MC doesn’t even farm lol. He lives with a farm, sure, but the moment he gets married he just gets f*cked like a regularly used s*x toy and doesn’t do everything he used to do before getting married. He also just completely lost all his instincts and habits from living through an apocalypse? It’s like he lost his personality.
  • author has a habit of bringing up a new conflict or any new point in the story and it always gets left in the air without any buildup until it’s just solved poorly and in an anticlimactic way. The author is apparently a newcomer. I hope they learn a lot from this.
  • this was just so lacking in substance and I couldn’t get attached to any character or part of the story. Not even the lame tactic of having a mascot/cute character (the first baby) could get me interested or invested.
    Spoiler

    and so, when the heavy rain and flooding came, I couldn’t even feel anything about lcf digging till his hands were bloodied. No monologue or dialogue, showing us his thoughts or poking at our emotions as readers. And I believe that’s because there’s nothing to build on in the first place. The MC and ML have no relevant memories in their relationship besides having s*x and then having a kid. They don’t have any inside jokes or any favorite thing they like to do together, nothing.

    [collapse]
  • some of my smaller and more personal gripes are the annoying villains never getting retribution and ML never being able to cleanly break away from his family. Eldest li being a doormat in the name of filial piety. Third li never being taught a lesson. The cheating homewrecker luo whatshisface still finding a love interest just because he finally saw that zhang ming treated him well. Qiu da (?) never getting punished for attempting to r*pe xy and xy never getting to talk about it. And so much more. I also had problems with the translations, constant inconsistency with pronouns at first and this strange disconnect that left me confused, as if they missed a few words or a whole phrase but I filled them in in my head. I appreciate the translator but it doesn’t mean I won’t criticize. Criticism is not being mean-spirited or ungrateful.
in the end, I wouldn’t recommend this novel. There are better farming and ger world novels out there. Anyway, I didn’t come here for the former but I've still seen better. Give it a shot if you’re so idle though.

A pretty mediocre story with a ton of dropped plotlines and a lot of unnecessary drama. Literally every chapter was some unrelated character making trouble...

I thought the story would be lighthearted and fluffy, but it reads more like a melo instead.

To be honest, I couldn't tell at all the purpose of the story. I think the author ended it the way they did because they didn't know how to drop the story.

The translator is fairly new, so translation was a bit clunky in the beginning, but got a lot better... more>> later on. However, there are still many flipped pronouns due to relying on MTL (there are no women in the story except 2 chapters, but there are many instances of "she" being mentioned incorrectly in the story).

The other issue is the translator didn't realize that "ge'er" or "a'ge" would be Google translated as "brother" (in CN, the term for ger utilizes the same character for "brother"). So imagine the awkwardness of some character saying "my brother is pregnant" when he really meant "my ger is pregnant." This doesn't just happen once or twice, it's peppered throughout the story. <<less

Spoiler

When I read it, Xu Qing was the first transmigrator that worried if the Original might come back to his body, so he didnt dare to do anything big for few days.

The story involved the husbands, friction and conflict came from their friends' live, the brothers, the parents.... well they were all Li ChenFang's since Xu Qing only friend was that one Xu family that helped him (not blood related). Xu Qing also told Li ChenFang of his space ability when there was erosion happened.

No farming whatsoever involved lol planting trees tho

This story is extremely bland, the relationship is lackluster as well as any drama that happens. The main character is from an apocalypse background which was the first red flag to me because I’ve yet to read a novel which manages to convey a post-apocalyptic person living in normal society in a believable way and this novel definitely wasn’t the one to do that.

Its just really boring

This novel is hella disappointing.

1. The tag "ugly to beautiful" is already a big red flag and an indicator to how ugly this novel is but I gave it a chance. There's a comment in one of the chapters in hololo novels about how uglyphobic the author is and THEY'RE RIGHT. But that is only one of the bad things in this novel.

2. The plot is all over the place. Despite the tag, I gave it a chance because the first few chapters made me interested a bit but the... more>> longer I continue to read I just keep getting disappointed.

3. Just read the reviews before starting a new novel guys. They're helpful sometimes.

4. The translation is hella annoying sometimes. Like how tf can you get their pronouns incorrect when they're all MALES WITH MALE PRONOUNS? THE GERS KEEP GETTING CALLED A SHE DESPITE HAVING DICCKUS WTHELL?

I already dropped like 3 novels before this one. The previous one, "I dare you to run away again", I dropped it because of how toxic the protagonists relationship is and how misogynistic the author is. <<less

Pretty average, but becomes boring quickly.

The premise is nice, the type of story I enjoy, but the execution fell way short. There are a lot more stories with similar premises that execute them in an interesting manner.

The MC is suuuuper passive and barely does anything himself. Stuff happens around him a lot, which he is only reacting to (he orders ML around a lot)

MC has his space power from the apocalypse, which he doesn't really use. Except cooking sth occasionally and giving his husband instructions for furniture and woodworking... more>> he also doesn't utilise his knowledge.

After the MC gets together with the ML he loses his personality and just changes quite a bit, he becomes even more passive. <<less
