Yin BiYue has made the worst purchase ever. After transmigrating countless times into the bodies of canon fodder villains, he buys a ‘Fiend Halo’ from the Rebirth Company, supposedly the best aid for an up and coming final BOSS!

He’s ecstatic to finally get a villainous role where he won’t die after just a few lines, if any at all, and is raring to become the best opponent a protagonist will have… However, why was everyone looking at him with pitying eyes? Why was the protagonist rushing over to help him get out of his crimes? Most importantly, why was his ‘Fiend Halo’ just making things worse?!

Meanwhile, the intern salesperson at the Rebirth Company discovers that he might have accidentally sold a prototype White Lotus Halo to a certain villain…

Edit: I was ecstatic to see more chapters. The promise of comedy gold seems to be intact as his halo and his role appear to be interacting... Poorly. (Your words say 'villain', but your halo says 'take me, I'm too innocent to be left to these wolves'.)

Original still applies: The MTL is only two steps shy of gobbledygook. Why is this important? Because with only five chapters out at the time, I wanted MORE.

The premise is unique. He doesn't want to not be a villain. He doesn't want to... more>> be Best Villain. He just wants, after n-reincarnation to have a real character. If he were an actor, he'd just want a named character in the credits and a few lines. And some newbie salesperson has utterly ruined that dream, opening (I'm hoping) comedy gold.

Review again after more chaps. <<less

Have only read the translated chapters so far, but I love it!


Because the entire concept of the ultimate villain with white lotus halo that has a "white-washing effect, " (quote from ludagad) is exciting, seriously! And the ML is Holy-Mother type, and not a yandere, double surprise!


And thank you to the translator, Sakhyulations for consistently updating a chapter a day!!!

Wow! This is really a unique kind of transmigration and BL of that! It's not like the usual type of BL that they fall in love in just first sight. There's more than that, the MC is not a schemer (I wish...) and more normal. He's also trying his best to complete the original plot, his monologue is like a water without a ripple, it's smooth sailing.

The novel also tells us how they fall in love (well, actually its all because of the halo).

Nice story! The atmosphere is mild... more>> and delicate, even if there's drama it would still be not that hardcore (probably). <<less

There's only been a few chapters translated so far, but the translation is excellent and the story is intriguing. The MC is kind of mysterious and seems clever so far, which I like. It's creative and hilarious that the MC is a hardworking villain, but will soon be thwarted by his accidental purchase of a White Lotus halo.

Ohh.. so painful.. I felt betrayed...
This was very traumatic...

I would like to give it a 2/5. But for the sake of effort, I'll give it a 3/5.


... more>> A very interesting plot—yes, as what you can see at the description. So I took a bite.

The story started off good. In fact, very good. The translator (and the author?) did a good job in describing what the setting looks like; used tons of figures of speech beautifully. The characters, especially the MC, was hilarious. It looked very promising. Until I read on...

Ah, this is so frustrating. Like I said, it started off good. Though I didn't know what's in store for me, it was entertaining and intriguing (at first), so I couldn't help but read on, curiousity piquing. Until right at the middle, it seems as though the author got lazy and decided to abandon the ship. That's what I felt. Suddenly, I was lost, didn't know what's going on, and why it's even happening. It's like everything's all over the place, and you don't know where the story is heading anymore. There are lots of shifting of scenes. And so finally, out of frustration, I decided to drop the novel. I could no longer continue.

Oh, my head aches again...


Characters... I think this is where the problem all started.

The MC was funny. I liked his internal monologue. Until the author decided to hide what the MC was thinking, and turn it into yours truly's point of view!

Around chapter 80+, I could no longer connect with the MC. For me, it seems like suddenly he acted so OOC. Since the author decided to entrust the 'judging' in my hands, in my point of view, suddenly the MC acted kind of 'irrational', and made me curse "WTF are you doing?! Why aren't you questioning things anymore all of a sudden?!". Maybe if I'm just after the fan service (*cough* if you know what I mean), I'll just shrug it off and say, "at least I got what I want". But sadly, no. In every novel that I read, in every anime that I watch, I invest more to the MC's essence. If he or she's not 'consistent' enough, I will eventually lose interest and feel there's no point in continuing.

And the ML.. *sigh* I can't say much. Because he is not outstanding enough, he's just like the rest of the side characters. For me, the author failed to establish a solid character for him. I wasn't able to connect with him at all. There's nothing to hate about him—but there's nothing to like, either. He's like a plain, white wall. A pity.*sigh*

As for the side characters, they were depicted beautifully at the start of the story. I even searched and liked their official character design. So beautiful. But, that's all there is. In the end, for me, the main characters are more important. But sadly, I got disappointed.


For those who are curious: yes, this has a pinch of comedy (but only at the beginning), lots of action, and *cough* 'steamy' scenes. Romance? I didn't feel a thing. Though there's a clear mention here and there, it's not convincing enough. To put it bluntly, I don't find their 'romantic' interaction romantic at all. Happy ending? I'm not sure. I dropped this so I have no idea.

Maybe this isn't really for me...

For final words: personally, I really can't recommend this, given the flaws I've stated above. But I won't stop you from reading this, either. After all, everyone has their own preference and taste...

And level of tolerance. <<less

Finished...85% of it? Skipped some things here and there.

It started out really really good. Love the main character's dead set-ness on becoming a villain and the way it just backfires on him every time. The transition in his mindset from "I gotta be the villain cuz this the thing I bought" to "I want to live happily and thoroughly in this world" is really refreshing. I love how he goes from an observer of the world to someone who fully embraces it. That's the good of this novel.

Then... it falls... more>> victim to Long Plodding Plot. Additionally - the ML and MC relationship is a bit UNDERWHELMING. Their scenes are kind of boring, and I kept on waiting for some chemistry, or something to keep me invested, but I found myself shrugging at whether they ended up together or not.

World-wise, it's quite well written. Think majority of the novel is more devoted towards the martial arts than the actual relationship LOL. But I lost interest because who knew I'd encounter a Shounen Novel trope in a dan mei. MC just gets too powerful too quick. Bygone are my days of thinking naruto style mid-battle power ups are actually interesting...

Overall - I'd recommend it. There's some compelling characters and particular scenes that are quite beautiful. But the overall plot is an exhaustive exercise in boredom. <<less

So far, there have only been the set-up chapters, so it's hard to see how this will turn out. The MC is a hard-working villain who wants to do his role well, and I respect him a lot already. He's not being manipulative or nasty like many Xianxia, and he actually comes across as an honorable villain thus far, which is quite refreshing. He tries to keep himself at a distance from others, but the halo keeps making him charm people instead, which will royally screw over his plans. The... more>> hero appears to be a good guy whose past is not as unblemished as he pretends it is, so it'll be interesting to see what is revealed about him from here on out.

The past events are not as clear-cut as they would first appear, and even the MC doesn't know exactly what happened in the details of his current role's villainous past. It'll be interesting to see what is discovered about this and other mysteries. <<less

I persevered in reading this until the two leads finally got together, but honestly I wanted to drop this ages ago. I wanted to love this novel- this is my second Transmigration novel after MXTX's Scum Villain, which I loved- but there's really only two words for it. Slow. and Boring. If you came here for the same reason, I suggest you save your time and look elsewhere.

Whether you will enjoy this novel or not depends on what you want out of it. Though it was advertised as a danmei... more>> novel to me, it is extremely driven by its wuxia setting, till the point where the romance seems almost incidental- every 20 chapters or so, the author seems to recall that the 2 main characters are supposed to be in love or on their way there, and throws in a few lines to placate her readers. I'd say this book is 90% wuxia, 5% romance, and 5% the white lotus halo. It's like the author forgot that the halo existed after Chapter 20- I can literally count on one hand the number of times the Halo appeared in the entire novel.

Consequently, this also means that if you like a dash of hilarity in your novel- like I do- you get your fill in the first 20 chapters and then the author leaves you hanging dry. But also literally dry, because this novel has chapters on end that are pure fight scenes. This is first and foremost an Wuxia novel. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Are there any pluses to this novel? yes. the translation is excellent. It's stuck at the early chapters, and captures the novel's early- and only- hilarity brilliantly. Then again, it will have no choice but to keep true to the source material.... and this is a novel that gets worse as it progresses, not better.

If you read Chinese and are pondering whether to brave the raws as I did- the level of Chinese in this book is high. It's a lot more poetic and stuffed with 成语 than your average danmei novel. (Again I say, this really is an wuxia novel which just so happens to have gay mains. Whose relationship is barely expanded on.) I love Chinese as a language despite being only average at it, and so this was a double edged sword to me- on one hand, there were plenty of beautiful turns of phrases to be appreciated. On the other hand, as impatient and eager for instant gratification as I was.... these phrases occasionally drove me to frustration. Then again, this is not a novel that romantic souls read for instant gratification, because there is barely any romance in this novel.

To summarise: if you want a Danmei novel with lots of m/m romance, don't read this novel. If you want a hilarious transmigration novel rife with misunderstandings and System Shenanigans, read the first 20 chapters of this novel. Likewise if you came here hoping for something like Scum Villain.... no. And unless you're a diehard Wuxia fan who loves reading florid descriptions of countless martial arts scenes.... don't waste your time. <<less

I read this awhile back then binge read it MTL. Due to a mistake, our villain MC is given a white lotus halo, he chose a relatively standard world with a good protagonist. Only problem is the white lotus halo won't let him play a villain! Lol. The protagonist even ended up misunderstanding him that something happened between them XD XD XD It was funny at first because the halo would always activate at opportune times.

Then things get serious when its revealed that the protagonist is a reincarnation of a 'demon?'/disaster star. More plot twist, and its explained how our MC became a villain in the first place. Turns out he was also from this world and at the time, MC was the protagonist and the 'protagonist' was the villain so he wished that they exchange places. T_T I would've preferred if they just kept it fluffy!! Not one of my absolute faves, but this is somewhat memorable to me~~

One of the more interesting novels I’ve read on this site. The MC’s intentions and the actual outcome are so wildly different that I can’t help, but laugh. I always love novels that have deep misunderstandings between all the characters that lead to even funnier events.

I am not sure at the moment who the actual male lead of this novel is, but I am enjoying the story regardless.

like the comment above, its true. Theres not much lovey dovey scene between the leads but for once I read a novel with fighting scenes that made me excited so I kinda like it. I dont care if the fightings look like a scene from a shonen manga. For me if its cool then its cool! 🤣

MC sucks at being a villain... even without the halo's whitening effect, he still wouldn't suceed...

The plot is typical, ok but nothing too special.

Could've been a lot more interesting if the story stick to the premise and MC is good at being a villain (instead of... well... generic white lotus... seriously the MC doesnt need the halo to be a white lotus)

Overall... 3.5 star

This is hilarious, and the concept great, and worth reading just for that. It also gives something of an explanation of what happens to the original soul after transmigration!

I finish this story using Google translate and get the gist of the story.

Its good👍👍👍

love it...😍😍😍

The only downside is... not much sexy time....😜😜😜And my brain is somehow fried and had a circuit break down 😵😵😵😨😠using Google translate... later when it's completely translated gonna read it again. the story is good like I said but its takes patience and tolerance reading it in MTL. If you dont have the patience and the will to sacrifice your brain cell for this story I suggest DON'T read this raw!!! You will only be... more>> disappointed.

Wait for it to be translated and lets all encourage the translator to translate this faster? Haha, I won't put pressure to the translator. Take your time. Its just that this story is much more to be appreciated if translated completely. The reason why some People give this story bad review is because Automatic computer translation is very bad. Headache inducing.

But everything except that is quite good👍👍👍 so funny everytime the halo activated...😂😂😂

the side story and 2nd-4th lover pairing is quite good too... the last one pair is quite unexpected.😉😉😉 <<less

I'm on chapter 15 and I have decided to drop this series. Reading other reviewers seems that glaring problems have already started to appear very early on. Maybe it's because of the update frequency or the actual story itself.

By chapter 15、 I was lost. Who is the ML? I don't really remember his name or what he did. The MC? Except that he had the white lotus halo、his initial personality had somehow disappeared to this completely stoic、 calm protag who seems cool with everything and not even question "why"

The concept is unique and its definitely worth a read. I'm certainly not picky with the Shounen Ai genre but the idea is an excellent enough on its own.

This is a comedic story and the plot is crystal clear, as evidence, it seems that relationships with the protagonist are set early on in the story (except for the main pair).

There is a downside and that is the fact the protagonist doesn't have a distinct enough character.

Godspeed to the translating team so I can read more of this interesting novel.

This is funny, interesting and different, its like anything he does is looked at like the actions of an unwilling martyr lol! And he is like: WTF Im the bad guy, so what is this?!.

On another note, the ML is not the possessive yandere type thats so popular, he is more of a nice sunny guy so its feels refreshing
