The Whole World Thinks I’m a Woman Disguised as a Man

After transmigrating into a danmei novel, Xue Lan became a part of the protagonists’ game team: a cannon fodder who plotted against the lead gong1 and was eventually kicked out of the team.

Initially, he only wanted to play and watch people be in a love-hate relationship as they teamed up. Unexpectedly, one day, he was mistaken for a woman who entered the club dressed as a man.
A sudden change took place—

Teammate A: Lan Lan, these snacks are all for you.
Teammate B: Lan Lan, let me know if you need any materials.
Fans ABCD: Lan Lan, you’re our baby and our pride! We’re cheering for you!

Lead gong Wen Yan threw him the materials he’d farmed for n-long time: Stay close, don’t think you’ll be treated differently just because you’re a girl.

Xue Lan: …I’m really a man.

Xue Lan passed the garden carrying snacks and gifts with gloom, but then saw the lead shou2 Duan Wenzheng sitting by himself under a tree.

Duan Wenzheng was a fierce teammate who rivaled Wen Yan in the rankings all year round. He just lost a solo3 practice match and seemed to be dejected.

Thinking he would soon become the shou, Xue Lan stuffed all the snacks in his hands.

Xue Lan with a sparkling gaze: Don’t be sad, we all lose and win in competitions. Next time you can tell me anything you’re upset about!

Duan Wenzheng who was pondering over life problems, what to eat for lunch, and didn’t properly play the practice match: ?

He raised his head to see Xue Lan’s sparkling eyes and faintly smiled. “Okay.”

Xue Lan was forced to come out of the closet after his identity was exposed. Everyone burst into an uproar. The media interviewed the teammates about their views on this.

“Very surprised.” The interview spiraled out of control after Duan Wenzheng casually took the microphone: “This is the second revelation that has left me shocked.”

The media hastened to dig into the details: So, the first is?
Duan Wenzheng: The partner of his coming out—is me.

All netizens: ?????

This is a neither here or there novel, at least it definitely doesn't stand as reading material for a longtime webnovel reader. The author had some 'good' ideas for gimmicks but that's that as they really didn't know what to do with them down the storyline.

The terminally ill MC transmigrates into his favourite BL e-sports fancfic novel after his death, which is okay. However this is packaged with two, for me, very annoying albeit popular tropes.

1st -- The gender controversy of MC: The MC takes up the role of the... more>> cannon fodder admirer of the fic's top, up 'till this point it's fine, unfortunately, this cannon fodder is an obsessive, cross-dressing freak on whom even his father has given up. (Don't misunderstand, I don't have anything against cross-dressers, freak is in reference to the fodder's basic setup.) The guy has lived for years pretending/wanting to be a girl, to the point of his wardrobe not containing even a single piece of clothing wich could be accused of being manly, so no pants in sight, and MC with the interests of a normal, maybe bent boy now has to take over for him when there are years' worth of live broadcasts of the original acting cute as a girl. And the author doesn't make a single reasonable excuse up for the MC's sudden MO change to be acceptable for the public. Instead the 'misunderstanding' is dumbly forced through the entire story just so the author can have their big outing drama with it towards the end... I'm kind of hard-pressed to even call it a misunderstanding as it's like everyone's IQ hit negative numbers while common sense just simply flew out the window.

2nd -- MC can't move on from the original plot development: This is a common illness of the trope that I find annoying after multiple encounters. Idk about others, but I just find it quite tiring if an MC is made to wear extra thick blindfolds in regards to changed romantic developments when it's painfully obvious the 'leads' are arguing over him and not because of him, not to mention he already acknowledged the butterfly effects of his actions in other aspects. Then there's the ML, everything about the guy screams "top" from get go. Honestly, I truly cannot imagine the original storyline of the fic.....

All things considered, this novel nets a weak 3-stars but I decided to lower to 2 in the end since I skipped a lot of it. It's not horrible but I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it either. <<less

The whole novel is about MC and Mls relationship. The game is put aside let's just say that MC and ML is too OP.

For 3/4 of the novel I think everyone's IQ has drop below 1 except the ML. Just the pretend to be a girl gimmick and people think he's a real girl had me dumbfounded. It's just doesn't go well for me.

The whole training camp arc is too long and unnecessary. You don't see other novels put too much effort into because if you're good just put them... more>> in the team! It's simple and straightforward. So the plot moves along.

MC is dumb, kind and shy, op in the game. I forgot the whole transmigration thing is real because I don't really feel it that way, he doesn't miss his old world or his parents.

ML is a straight up rogue, who only cares about the MC. That's it point blank haha.

I do feel bad for the team captain he ends up....... but I don't understand how ML end up being a shou for him in the first place in the original novel. They are like oil and water and didn't get a long a single time.

I think they speed through the games part alot. They got the final in one go at point without playing other matches. So you can see how the way it's written the game is not important. The most enjoyable thing is ML teasing MC non stop. But it does get repetitive since MC gives the same reaction 99% of the time.

The novel is pretty short, I finished in one day. So give It go if you like, not for Esports enthuasis don't expect too much. <<less

The premise is good but it's boring. The MC is lacking for me. It might have something to do with his sickness before but I just don't like it. His personality is bland and boring. I am indeed disappointed but we'll see if I'll continue to read this in the future. Dropped for now.
