The Young General’s Wife Is Mr. Lucky


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

Yu Jinli* was a koi fish who had practiced for a thousand years.

He had taken the shape of a human being recently with the ability to predict fortune and change luck.

He was supposed to be a popular Mr. Lucky but who could have thought that…

“Sir, your forehead is covered by gloomy air. I’m afraid there is a looming threat of fatal disaster waiting for you…” Yu Jinli said with all seriousness.

All of a sudden, a big flower pot descended from above and hit that man directly on the head.

“Buddy, the top of your head is green. I’m afraid that…”

Before Yu Jinli finished, the young man opposite him received a call and headed to a hotel nearby to catch his girlfriend in the act of adultery.

“Brother, you…”

Everyone cried: Lord General, please take good care of your wife and don’t let him throw curses around… TAT

Yu Jinli felt frustrated: Obviously, I’m warning them with a good intention.

The nationally acknowledged most perfect man, the young general: Dear, don’t get upset because of those shortsighted men. Come home with me and I’ll make you chestnuts roasted with brown sugar. (Translator’s note: The Chinese character for chestnut is the same as the Chinese character “Li” in “Yu Jinli”)

Those “shortsighted” men: …

*Note: The two Chinese characters “Jin Li” in the name sounds similar to the two Chinese characters for koi fish. ‘Jinli’ is now a symbol of luck in internet slang.

At first, I am completely fine with the innocent, s*upid, oblivious MC. But as time goes by, it get's very irritating. He kept on praising the ML with simple things that are sometimes common sense. If you traversed into a new world, the first thing you should do is to do some research about the world and some common sense so that you won't be s*upid enough to reveal your identity. The MC always needs to rely on the ML regarding common sense. Sometimes I just want to knock the... more>> MC's head out and shout to him "You have a terminal! Do some research s*upid white lotus!"

Also, the ML is a typical-turned-to-waste-but-was-saved-by-the-MC. Many chinese stories are like this so it becomes cliché.

In short, story is dragging, characters are cliché and annoying. It's really not my cup of tea. <<less

As a person who usually read 100 something chapters and 200+ is the limit, me seeing that this novel had 528 chapters made me feel:

(OoO) / *shocked*

But I decided to read it. Why? Since it has all the things that I like in an interstellar setting.

... more>> There's also a unique profession in this novel. (My first time reading about it.)

There is no heavy conflicts or drama. It really is a light read. I spent 3 days reading this novel and it would've been shorter had I not forced myself to sleep early.

The ML is very possessive but he's also very sweet. He's very thoughtful about our MC.

The MC is a lucky koi fish so... *laughs* there's also a comedic tone where they needed to find something and it would just appear. 🤣

I really liked how thoughtful the ML's family is to the MC.

Honestly, I can't really find the right words to express how I feel since I'm still wrapped up in a warm cocoon of honey (*coughs* dog food *coughs*)

The plot is quite smooth. The characters that were mentioned in the earlier chapters did appear and were combined well in the plot.

Yes, I did kinda find the other characters mindset the same and quite repetitive. (The envy for the ML and MC's achievements and them plotting how to ruin our MC and ML; including the hate of the envious people to the family of the ML) but it's quickly resolved.

The chapters are quite short so it's very engaging.

I also love how kind the MC is. (It's probably because he's an animal spirit.)

I'd definitely recommend this if you like a comfy, warm, long read.

I just wished that there was an extra chapter. I'd like to read more of them, including the master and older brother of the MC.

I'd like to thank the author of this novel and the translator/s and editor/s that took this novel up. Please continue it. I'll still support the translated version. 🧡✨ <<less

For any of you out there who likes read 'The general loves picking red flowers', this is a must try ^~^

MC is lovable, cute and innocent in a way similar to Le Yao whilst the male lead is also a general the same as Xu Yao > <

At first, I was just dazzled by the MC's innocence, ML's vinegar jar and how they broke everyone's worldview but later, I simply enjoyed it and fell inlove laughing at the author's creativity

The combination of spiritualism, interstellar era, mecha, gourmet food, cardmaking that reminds me of Yu-gi-oh with pokemon and plants versus zombies in the apocalypse is the very definition of all-in-one!

Maybe because I’m used to superb danmei novels, I keep getting the feeling that this one is too shallow like those brainless transmigration novels with Mary Sue’s MC.

Things happen way too fast and way too easy. Oh, they changed the fiancé? Ok. He knows my secret sickness that only few people know? Ok. Just meet and he is doing something that can easily kill me? Go ahead. Just. Too. Much!!

The author don’t take time to construct the history, nor the character and even less a whole idea! The story keeps... more>> changing the focus all the time! Seems like the author woke up and decided to write about food. Then few days later, forget food, let’s make cards. Then again and again and again...

If you really don’t mind all those details, go ahead. Otherwise, well, give it a try anyway, you won’t even have time to deceive yourself that this novel is to your taste. <<less

This was really good are the beginning but now the only reason I could keep reading it was because I wanted to see the MCs master and brother find him. I liked the idea of holographic cooking (it reminded me of another novel but I don't remember which) and the ML was great. I did want him to be a bit more surprised when he found out that his lover was a fish though.

I start read this novel and I found it very si simple and funny, the MC is so innocent that you can't not love it. The only reason for my vote, not so hight, its because Flying Line oblige you to subscrite for continue the reading, and when I tried they not permited me to do it.

The story is pure fluff, and the Lucky Koi MC never has any true setbacks. The cute story was enjoyable, and so was the the sweet interaction between the ML and MC; yet the MC is the epitome of Gary Stu / Mary Sue. 🐠

... more>>

He's able to cultivate though 'spirit/faith points', heal ML's 'cripple' status and ML's dad's poison. He somehow has amazing cooking abilities, gains the ability to make energy/elemental cards, can learn anything very quickly, and later gains the ability to make mechas / purify constructed mecha parts to no impurities. It goes from a cooking hologram/show, to a virtual game with card making to making mechs to Zerg/military things to spirtual world/animal cultivation. Also, Gary Stu Lucky Koi always avoids plots against him by his sheer good luck or is protected by ML/others. It's true he works relatively hard, but good results also happen to him super easily.

Not that the story is bad, it's still an extremely adorable story. But some aspects of it reads more like fan fiction/wish-fulfillment by the author, lol. 😂 Still, it's a long, but fun read, but there's no tension in the challenges that the MC faces.... Which is why I suppose he's a Lucky Koi. 🐠

Cuteness, fluffiness, love overload!

The main character is cute, simple, and adorable! Matched with the iceberg yet gentle to only MC strong major general is the perfert combination to convey endless yet addictive sweet, love-sharing scenes.

I simply love the mc's character! How can you not love a simple yet lucky cultivator koi? All hail lucky koi fishes!

This novel is a good slice of life story with occasional drama with the military, with focus on mc's growth and skills as a cultivator/ cardmarker and emphasis on familial love. Of course, the best... more>> scenes are the lovely, fluffy, and heart-touching scenes with MC and ml.

Overall, the author did a wonderful job to put all these characteristics together while making the story flow smoothly. It left me with a sweet, satisfied feeling in the end. <<less

A very refreshing setting, transmigration&cultivation&sci-fi world. Adorable couple, cute and sweet storyline, focus on revolving on their daily life on how the general recovered from his illness and how the little fish adapted to his new environment. If you look for some light-hearted cute story with refreshing world settings, this is definitely the one to pick.

So I have spent my last week binge reading this book MTL style (which is really easy to understand by the way.) And I have to say, I freaking love this love.

I've grown such a fondness for our little koi MC his adventure into this new interstellar world that he is thrust into.

There's a lot of bits of intrigue between what happened to our Yu Jinli in the beginning to how he ended up into this world. A lot of the history gets explored and a lot of questions do... more>> get answered.

Its a really heartwarming tale, with really fun segments of

[cardmaking including familiar properties such as pokémon or plants vs. Zombie, team battles and war, live broadcasting cooking, etc..


There's so many things packed into this novel that I was never bored. Although I know that some people have complained about the quality of this novel having so many facets but I think the author treats it quite well. It's a mixture of a lot of books that I've enjoyed here such as "In the Future, My Whole Body is a Treasure", "The Film Emperor's Daily Live Cooking Broadcast", "Master of Trading Star Card Game, " etc.. Without being a direct copy of any. Just a really fun novel I couldn't stop smiling at.

I also know that people have had some gripes in the comments about MC being a "white lotus" but the MC throughout this whole novel is very stagnant with the point that he can protect himself and has proved that through his various of talents. This can be through his skills of

cooking, cardmaking, mecha-making, alchemy, etc.. [

This couple are both very powerful beings, so I don't think its fair to say that the MC is reliant on the ML in anyway. Furthermore, even though this a top notch power couple we still have to deal with a lot of twists from our villains (brainless or not) and we get to see how our characters attack those problems/get stronger.

Once again I really loved this novel so I recommend giving it a shot. <<less

So all in all, it's a really good read with some pretty minor gripes.


It's light and fluffy and overflowing with cuteness.

The interstellar world, although done a lot, has some pretty new things that I have not seen in any other BL. It's pretty unique and a great read.


ML's personality type is getting really old really fast. Getting jealous over EVERY LITTLE THING?! Talking with friends too long. Jealous. Taking care of other people he cares for. Jealous. I get a bit of jealousy, but under every single little thing?!

Can't there ever be an ML who actually cares for their little brother more than just "I'll do the bare minimum brotherly duties"?


This novel also falls into the common trap of foreigner hate.

There is an Empire that is basically US's interstellar offshoot that are absolute douchebags towards the Chinese Federation. First of all they are culturally Chinese with a Chinese mindset. They act nothing like actual US (majority of) people would. Now you can argue that their culture would change over time but the author wrote the Federation as noticeably heavy Chinese culture still ingrained in their actions


MC is obviously a hidden powerhouse although he looks really frail, but author never really give him time to shine. He did so twice to face slap, but not to his true full powered ability which I'm kind of disappointed about.

The starting of the novel till chapter 10 has a lot of similarities to "In the Future, My Whole Body is a Treasure".


Like the MC being a spiritual beast or a plant or animal who became human who seems to know nothing about the world. ML is sick and dying after a fight with the Zerg +conspiracies, ML's father being sick and retired due to injuries. MC's first interaction with ML plus a LOT of other things.


I have not read the rest. Hope it starts to become different.
