There Will Always Be Protagonists With Delusions of Starting a Harem

Description

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

Suddenly, the unmarried twenty-year-old Ye Zhizhou had many more relatives, yet it was too late for him to clearly understand the circumstances as he nearly died in a car accident. After that, he somehow managed to survive and was even forcibly bound to a Salvation System.

How is it salvation?

Harems destroy worlds! Preventing a harem will save them!

. . . .

Ok, prevent harems. After seeing the entire system introduction, the corners of Ye Zhizhou’s mouth twitched. In order to return home safely, he decisively began his risky journey—he’d just treat it as if he was playing a large-scale strategy game.

Since then, the people the protagonist would rescue, he rescued first.The businesses the protagonist would make, he made first. The little brother the protagonist would take in, he took in first. The cliff the protagonist would jump off of, he jumped off of first. The gay s*x the protagonist would have, he’d have. . . . Wait wait, can’t do this one, change it, let me change it.

???: No, you can do this one.

Ye Zhizhou (alarmed): Who’s speaking?

???: Your husband.

Ye Zhizhou: . . . .

Honestly one of the worse QTs out there.
    1. Pacing is WAY too fast even for a supposed quick transmigration
    2. You can tell that the author is trying very hard to get readers to dislike certain characters (word choice, etc. That it actually gets very annoying. Prime example of telling but not showing) - 2D villains
    3. The oddest plot twists (+ twist upon twist) that apparently even the author admitted to getting confused by, let alone readers
      Spoiler

      the illegitimate child arc

      [collapse]
    4. Nonsensical plot and plot devices (how does a box of chocolates escalate to nuclear war????)
    5. OP MC that no one questions
      1. he pulls things out of the system in front of people

        and not one questions it
If you want to give it a try, go ahead. I think the only reason I bore with it for this long was simply because it was one of the first novels I read all the way back when QWTFD, TPWSKMFFMI, and HDS were practically the only QTs available. It doesn't (or at least hasn't) get better in 100+ chapters.

The MC is surprised at literally everything. The ML breaks character almost the moment he sets eyes on the MC (while I know the soul remembering thing does happen, it's still too fast for me). The supporting cast isn't even given enough time for me to care about them, especially in the later arcs with 8-9 harem members.

The only arc I liked was the celebrity one, but only because there was at least some character development in the supporting cast.

Like there are some novels that are satisfying to read even with an OP MC + system, but this isn't one of them. You are much better off spending your time reading a different QT.

I usually complain about slow pacing but this novel has taken it too far in the opposite direction. I barely have enough time to get to know the characters in each story so I don't even care about that obligatory summary paragraph about how they lived the rest of their lives.

Events also progress in a very unnatural manner just to keep the plot moving fast. How do you go from telling someone that you stole his childhood friend's identity to taking him on a trip to dig up the corpse... more>> of that friend in the same day? So many issues are skipped and not even hand-waved away to get to the next plot event.

Pulling out miraculous pills out of nowhere to poison or heal people, shouldn't Ye Zhizhou look super suspicious flaunting these powers all the time? How does he reveal these things and yet have no one question whether he's lying and framing the protagonist of the world? Who are these people and where can I find them? I have so many "investment projects" for them to put their money in. <<less

I though I will see another new (fast wear) tags, but I already read this raw 😭😭😭😭

Btw, this novel is so good. Its focused to the harem and the harem is totally messed up. If u harem, hate godly/hypocrite protagonist, then u can read this. This story is too good.

... more>>[/MC job is to broke the harem, and the protagonist is always crazy. The information from sytem is soo messed up tht I Lol. I really like how the MC said tht the protagonist is hypocrite. Because indeed it is. The information from system is soo beautifull, yet the reality is not tht. Lol. The MC is not villain. At least not the villain in the real live, or out the novel. Cause, MC and harem action will destroying the world and the cause is so messed up. It so funny. Too funny I would say.

And the ML is like FOD, dont worry. Its a possessive, obssesive, handsome, powerfull ml, and the MC is slighly cunning, and cute. Not like MC FOD. But not sweet like lovabable package if u already see these novel on Novel Update. Its wonderfull story. U can read this. I recommend this 👍👍👍 <<less

This one is good pick, I read halfway through the raws and it focuses mostly on the MC breaking the harem rather than his romance, and slight spoiler is that the system doesn't provide accurate information on the plot of the world, so the MC has to figure out and piece together what was missing in order to complete this mission.

To sum it up, this is a story of a lost child, yandare-san and a drug dealer.

😂😂😂😂😂

The plot is interesting and it looks easy and unreasonable at first, but when our MC entering Hell Mode, he will discover the world's secrets and the real enemy's identity.

The story is somewhat similar to FOD but fear not, it is still a very entertaining read. MC is intelligent and witty, ML is very possessive but sweet and protective of the MC. Please do not turn away from this novel just because someone said that it wasn't a satisfying read after basically only finishing 1 arc. The more you read, the more you understand the story and the characters and trust me it will get you hooked.

200% recommended to read.

Plus, am I the only one who got really creepy vibes when the 1st arc's ML laid his hands on a minor? A minor he's supposed to be guarding? Fudge, I normally don't bat an eyelid when it's BL (like in Quickly Wear The Face of the Devil), heck — I read shotacon doujins! But this is just... no...

so this novel has very mixed reviews... why? Well besides the obvious different people have different tastes, there are a few key points...

1. the novel has a general repetition for the most part from the begininning towards the late middle (around 120s I think) until it finally starts to tie in some major plot points,

unlike other world hopping or fast wears where they get really indepth with the arcs and world building to the point where the chapters get dragged out, this novel makes it feel as if there... more>> are more arcs that look shorter in indexes, but the story carries through making it feel fulfilled without too much filler and just enough fluff and face slapping and the system being its cute and caring self.

I'm not sure if I would say I like this method more to say cannon fodder cheat system where it goes further in depth with other characters from their perspective, reborn as a system where I think there's a lot of info dumping, or FOTD where its the perfect remedy of everything. I think getting the majority of the perspective just from our friendly MC works for this because we find out things with him in his thought process as we solve the mystery in each arc. Sometimes it can be slightly dumb or question how the MC could have possibly come to that conclusion based on diddly squat, but generally the plot twists are satisfying. I especially love the zombie arc! Its probably my favorite to be honest, but I'm an apocalypse nut so I'm slightly biased.

2. Sometimes the mtling is just confusing even though the arc's story is good,

Spoiler

*cough* there is this one reallllly annoying arc where the father and two sons (one being the protagonist, the other being our MC) all have the same name (Zhang Qiu I think). While their first names have different chinese characters and they sound differently, when it gets down to it in english and we remove the accents, they are the same and it gets really confusing, and I really like that arc so it makes me even more frustrated...

i look forward to how the translator will go about their names

[collapse]

3. Sometimes I think the author just used that arc to sell meng (moe, fluff),

Spoiler

I know other may disagree with me... but personally I really hate that sleeping devil cultivation arc. The one where ML is the devil king or demon beast king (?). He's a doggo. The story seems rather thrown together, there are points that confuse the h*ll out of me despite rereading and the only pros to this arc is the fluff service. The ML is a doggo but because he was sealed or needs to conserve energy or something, he looks like a pup or a kiddo (can't recall exactly, too frustrated). He is super adorable nonetheless, and super smexy when he turns back into a hunk to eat some tofu.

It is sorta nice seeing ML so vulnerable, but I think other arcs do it better when they make him emotionally vulnerable.

[collapse]

4. Sometimes the ML is too yandere (which puts some ppl off). I thought it was cute. I personally really love their relationship and the characters because they both feel real and finally the ML isn't f*cking perfect! They also have real relationship fights.

Spoiler

There was also one arc where the MC did nothing to solve the arc because ML decided to do it for him and they got into a huge fight because of it. It was very dramatic! And then ML did it again later and I think the MC threatened to break it off with him if he does it again since the MLs distrust in MC makes the MC unable to trust ML, and he should be able to trust his life partner! There was more drama, and I will be evil and not tell you which arc so you can read the novel to find out! Teehee~ <3

There was a ton of fluff, and a ton of tofu eating some of which was a bit more than fading to black. MC I feel has more bad ass moments than ML or at least they're more dramatic!!! There was an arc that did make me cry bcuz... well something really tearjerky happened. But I cry from watching les miserables, soooo....

[collapse]

now that we are out of spoiler territory, I would seriously rate this novel 4 stars because while it wasn't as epic and original as some of the 5 star novels, there are definitely original stories in here that make it story wise at least a solid 3.5 despite mtling difficulties. What makes it 4 is the relationship between MC and ML and the ML in general because while he is just as OP as those other MLs in other novels, this ML has emotional vulnerabilities that feel real and also dramatic and unique, that I feel is not explored as much or at all in other novels. I mean, he almost destroyed their relationship in the latter half of the novel where they should be an unbeatable duo! It made me happy!

God speed reader! <<less

Its really good.

Though the premise is overused the plot is still very interesting. Theres a lot of comedic parts but got parts that almost made me shed tears too. Especially during the later parts. Gosh.

+ the characters arent one dimensional. Theyre very individualistic imho. Esp the MC.

But the best part lol I think would be the sheer ridiculousness of when the mirror tells the MC about how the harems can destroy worlds. So ridiculous 😂. I love it.

Having read a lot of these novels, this one is a breath of fresh air.

Points I like about it:

  • It gets better as we go, instead of getting stale and boring.
  • The MC is actually an MC and retains his intelligence and agency throughout, in so many of these the MC just becomes the MLs hand luggage after a few arcs.
  • MC is fantastic.
  • ML goes through an arc or two of over the top possessiveness but tones it down to more reasonable levels later. Also helps that MC doesn't take his crap.
  • Interactions between MC and ML and other characters are freaking hilarious sometimes. I've legitimately lol'd many times.
  • There's no over-the-top angst between MC and ML. They both know what they want and they don't beat around the bush about it.
  • MC doesn't spend 80% of the novel in pain complaining about how he can't sit down and how much his "waist" hurts.
  • Not everyone in every single world is bent. There's actual non-villain women in it, even in later arcs and they even sometimes get together with men. It's crazy.
  • MC starts off OP to the point where he can just brute force the mission but the missions get more and more difficult and he quickly needs to start being clever and not just OP, which is great.
For the sake of balance, what I didn't like:

  • Sometimes, in the later worlds the plot can get so convoluted with so many characters that I get super confused. But since it's a QT novel and the arc plot is transient, it doesn't really matter.
  • I've run out of translated chapters. : (
Overall one of my favourite BL novels. Definitely the best BL QT novel.

Recommendation: Give it a try. Also, keep going cause it actually just keeps getting better.

I really liked it !!! There were a lot of plot twists and it was really well written and translated ! Its similar to FOD in the way that there is transmigration and disrupting the protagonist but in a more detailed way than FOD.. A very entertaining read !!

Edit : Taking back my stars. Got bland in the later chapters unfortunately. Once you have seen one you have seen all.

Start it and give it a chance, don't give up to get to good parts.

For English-speaking users, suffer through first 30 chapters of translation that has an MTL scent, it will be worth it I promise. Not to mention that beginning is a bit messy, but later you can feel author put a lot of effort in creating a better story.

Satisfactory factors to me:

  • The MC starts with a cheat of spiritual power, and I thought it would be another FOD with boring easily achieved world task, but boy was I wrong. After few worlds the difficulty gets higher and MC has to adopt to situations, some turns he chooses are unpredictable and interesting, no unnecessary lyrics, eevrything there to progress the plot;
  • Lovable MC: his cute reactions to story progress, interactions with the system, how he cares for wronged leads, all in all he's quite cute;
  • After some time it gets heavier on the story than MC/ML romance, and I'm not mad about it, some arcs are really well-done and despite them being relatively short they still leave a strong impression with interesting plot twists. During this time ML indeed becomes like a furniture, but the exciting plot saves the day and this is more shounen ai type of story, so don't expect steam;
  • Many authors of QT genre dump info on the story at once, but with this novel it actually makes more sense and fits the progress of the story (because spoilers the initial story may change) ;
  • I would call it an exciting read, after first few wrolds when the story starts to settle down and have a direction to more interesting plot twists and turns it gets quite exciting. The best part is how when the plot of the world is revealed it's seems cliche and boring, but the way author changes it is what is worth.
Solid 4, 5 for... more>> everything so far. Might edit with the reading progress, but it's one of QT novels that get me excited :) <<less

This is a fun, light read with interesting plots and harem-breaking. The main character carries the story, but most of the side-characters come across as rather flat. The original protagonists whose harems the MC had to destroy came across as pretty nasty people once all was revealed. It'll be nice if more dimension is shown for the original protagonists and side-characters. Thus far, there are a lot of unanswered questions, even relating to the previous arcs, so I don't have any hope for them being answered.

Unfortunately, some of the sentences... more>> are very unclear, which makes them lose meaning in the translation and makes me feel like I'm missing part of the story. <<less

Decent for a quick hit if you like transmigration novels, even if the plot isn't the best, but I think the translator might be illiterate. At any rate, the MTL could really use an editor.

Content warnings for arc 1:

Spoiler

Fatphobia and unrealistic weight loss (acknowledged to be unrealistic, but it makes you wonder why it was necessary to make the character fat in the first place, except to juxtapose the character before and after MC transmigrates into his body), ML repeatedly kisses MC despite MC being in the body of a minor and unwilling

The plot developments are unrealistic, the characters are shallow, and the translation doesn't make up for any of that and is barely readable at best, so I wouldn't recommend this unless you just want a quick QWFOD-like read. <<less

Gave it an average rating but if the story continues to improve as it shows promise to do I'll rate it as 4*.

This story has a weak start and it oly really starts becoming interesting after the arcs reach the level of dificult.

Rather than romance and BL, this main genre should actually be mystery since the main attraction of this novel is how MC manages to unravel and discover the plots that are really behind the mary sue halo of the protagonist.

What sets this story apart from other quick transmigration... more>> novels is that the plot summaries given in every world are by an unriliable narrator that hide the protagonissts true scheems.

Otherwise the system is discreetly overpowered, providing seemingly unlimited worlddefying pills to the protagonist. The protagonist is openly overpowered because of his spirit sence due to him coming from futuristic world which is more advanced than most worlds he visits and the ML is just a huge golden thigh in every single world that MC doesn't even need to hug for him to solve the more complicated plot points.

Although all of the antagonists in this story are pretty darn formidable the MC surfs through them without to much effort so there is not much supsence.

Hence this story is recommended for those how want a relaxing but intellectually stimulating read. <<less

Let me just say that it was a momentous struggle to get through the first 30 chapters. Like dragging my eyes through molasses. I thought to myself, "Why am I doing this? How come there are so many good reviews? Is everyone goddamn crazy to be giving this novel such high reviews?!"

But after I got to the 3rd arc, things really picked up. I'm not sure if it's because of the quality of the translation or if the author improved their writing, but the rest of the arcs are of... more>> drastically higher quality. You may as well evaluate the first 30 chapters as an entirely different novel. If not for the beginning of the novel, I would rate this a 5.

That being said, it's probably worth waiting for the full English translation for this one. Reading the first 30 chapters --which was basically poorly edited MTL-- was a huge mistake, so I can only imagine reading true MTL.

There are many laughs to be had. MC and ML as well as the scenarios are f*cking hilarious. My favorite part is when:

Spoiler

MC: Wow this world is so easy!
System:...
System: Commencing world difficulty upgrade.
MC:... Wait...
MC: Wait, I take that back!

[collapse]

Other funny parts include:

Spoiler

The 5th arc where MC meets the protagonist who keeps "fainting" and the protagonist tries to act like he's unconscious while getting yelled at by a doctor. Also in the 6th arc when ML regresses into a baby demon and calls MC "Mommy, " MC tries to go to the next world immediately, hahaha.

I am really enjoying this. It's a fast wear novel (world hopping), that although has similar genre's of world's to other fast wear (zombie's, Ancient china, Entertainment industry, etc.), The stories that the Author thought up are really original, in-depth, with interesting twists and turns that were always unexpected. There were situations that I have not come across in other fast wear novels. There is always a good amount of comedy, all characters were well written, felt real enough and weren't cringey. Add on the MC's intelligence on how he... more>> deals with and manipulates situations to his benefit, yet isn't too intelligent or perfect to where he feels fake, makes very intriguing stories.

I read this story before but left off at chapter 20 something because I became busy and eventually I forgot about this novel and lost interest in it. I just recently started to reread it from chapter 1 and I've read all the way to the recent update chapter in just one day. It's similar to the plot of FOD and HDS with world hopping and a smart MC and possessive ML.

... more>>
Spoiler

However, the difference in this novel is that the ML has slight personality changes in each world, with each body he's in making the plot interesting (although of course he stays devoted and loving to the MC). The MC is also tasked with destroying the harem of the og protagonist in each world, with each world getting more difficult and the number of harem members increasing. It's also an HE ending at the end of each world.

[collapse]

This story also isn't only focused on the steamy scenes and intimacy between ML and MC, but the author also focuses a lot on developing plot. All in all, it's a great read. Although it has the familiar elements of world hopping/transmigration, a system administrator, and clever MC and ML, it still is different in a lot of ways to other novels and I definitely recommend it :) <<less

Well in first arcs I was bored by simple plots but when mission difficulty rose, it did became interesting. I haven't completed it yet but so far with difficult arcs it's fun.

One thing I don't like is arcs are very short like 10-12 chapters so in some worlds many things are not understood about world only focus remains on how MC completes his missions.

ML in many arcs don't have much role except few where he is one of prime character.

I found ML cute when he was a little beast and... more>> acting all coquettish like a cat. <<less
