This Cannon Fodder is Covered by Me!


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

Lu Zhiguang is not a cannon fodder himself, but his mission is to save the miserable cannon fodder.

A businessman who lost in a business game. A teenager who kept silent under school violence. The actor whose road to fame was ruined by cyber violence. An unknown man who was misunderstood until the day he died.

There can only be one protagonist in every world, so fate hides in the corner sending it’s cold tentacles toward the innocent.

Some people stay silent, some choose to compromise, some are unwilling, and some are fulfilled.

There should always be individuals to hug them.

So the Lu Zhiguang went to hug.

Then people will not let go.

[Lu Zhiguang: That… Have you hugged enough? QAQ]

As the translator I know I am a biased reviewer. Now that that is out of the way, I seriously love this book. It is a quick wear in the vain of Face of the Devil, but is really nothing like it. The protagonist is sweet and has a complicated background you uncover slowly as the novel goes on.

The pacing is excellent and each arc is satisfying. I don't want to add any spoilers, so suffice it to say I think it's worth looking into if you enjoy BL, fast... more>> wear and a lot of sweetness that is there along with having a strong protagonist and ML. <<less

I picked this novel because of its unique task - supporting cannon fodder characters - rather than the usual - taking revenge or changing destiny of the original lord or improving original lord's image in the eyes of the target. Those three plots I've read about in quite a lot of world hopping novels. It became amazing to watch the MC support the cannon fodder (ML) instead. Not in all arcs, ML is more OP than MC. Instead, if it wasn't for the low level of MC's system, I think... more>> he would be even more OP. ML is much more bound with reality except falling in love quite fast. About that, in terms of love, MC is the same. MC isn't a liar (except sometimes) but is more of a concealer. He won't tell anything about his real identity if not asked but still in a roundabout way. And the system is cute. Always thinking in the wrong direction or is it the correct one?! :) :)

At the middle of the first half of the second arc, it's fun to watch MC, now being a professor, asking ML, who's now a college student, about his homework. It's a total revenge. MC was a student in the first arc and had to do homework under watch of the ML. Laughing hard! :)


{CH 28} [12-06-2019]
After reading this chapter, I felt that the system is competing with the ML for his good host's affection. Yet, ML foils the plan and wins instead. Another thing is that the homework seems to be quite important part of this novel. MC hates it and also uses it retaliate back to ML. The system is also a hater of homework now. Except ML, who completes homework in order to please MC, MC and system are anti-homework party.

{CH 42} [12-06-2019]
At the start of the fourth arc, I was very surprised to the point of laughing. "Robbery of you." and "The current kidnappers are truly human!"
Another thing that I noticed in the novel is that the MC's actual name is Lu Deng (as this name has been mentioned in other arcs except the character name) while ML's name is Gu Yuan and they change their name in every world except their surnames. Even in the first world, the given name is not MC's own (based on my reasoning).

{CH 61} [1206-2019]

The fourth arc revealed too much information about MC. Of course, I won't spoil those except that he's got an uncle in this one. The meeting point of ML, MC and his uncle is fun to read. Why MC is so quiet and sensible? Why he doesn't talk much? All this connects to his past. Although in this arc, the author didn't tell his life story entirely but he/she made us known that the character that MC plays finally in one of the movies at the end of arc resembles his life story. Somewhere in his life, MC suffered the same or had a similar experience.

Must praise the cute system. He worked hard and also went off to fight with the customer service center for a wrongly purchased product. Well, the wrongly purchased product did provide MC with benefits (cooking, makeup and what-not skills) except the expected driving skills. In my opinion, I think that old driver skills were actually experienced wife skills.

{CH 73} [12-06-2019]

Really love the little cute system. Its intimateness to its host and jealousy to ML is clearly shown in its action for preparing things and alerting his host. The 5th arc was good. If it wasn't for the identity that MC chose on the advice of system, he may not have been able to emotionally express himself to ML and fall in love with him in-plot. It clearly shows importance of choosing a suitable character. For the first time, MC and ML were acquainted with protagonist of the plot.

This novel really tells that everyone is the protagonist of their own story. There are a total of 12 big brothers to our little young master (MC) who's 5 or 6 years old. I really like the childhood setting but the plot setting is a knife to MC and ML's relationship. I wonder what MC would do smooth sail the plot without it hurting his brand new family. And, it's fun to watch all the brothers' pampering to our MC, which he very much deserves.

The arcs in the novel are:-

ARC 1 - Advanced - Interplanetary Conflict
ML - Gu Yuan - Commercial Giant of Galileo
MC - Lu Zhiguang - Young Poor Student (later, Undercover Agent of a Higher Planet)

ARC 2 - Slightly Advanced - Department of Biology

MC - Lu Jingmo - Young Professor of Biology

ARC 3 - Advanced - Secret Service Corps
ML - Gu Ting - Patriarch of Blood Family (Vampires)
MC - Lu Huai Ye - Younger Generation of Blood Family (Undercover Agent of Secret Service)

ARC 4 - Modern - Entertainment World
ML - Gu Xi - Film Emperor (Actor of Qiankun Entertainment)
MC - Lu Qianzhou - Young Paparazzi (later, Nephew of the Boss of Qiankun Entertainment)

ARC 5 - Modern - Crime Detectives
ML - Gu Pingming - Recovering Policeman
MC - Lu Baiyu - Professional Rehabilitation Doctor

ARC 6 {Exclusive Childhood} - Interstellar - Weak-to-Strong Prince
ML - Gu Song - Slave Bought from a Dying Galaxy
MC - Lu Qingshi - Weak Youngest Young Master of Lu Family

An interesting concept! I love stories with transmigration and systems. So far, it's pretty interesting! I also like how the main character is helping cannon fodder characters.

I also like that there's no dark history or past.. The main character is just transmigrating to skip an exam. Usually, other transmigration stories are such that they have a very sad past, died unjustly, or are after revenge, or something. This is a breath of fresh air.

I am truly in love with this story!

Most fast wear story revolves around revenge, making it to the top, and face slapping (which I too like). But this one does the opposite of that. It's a heartwarming story about two people who wants to live their life in peace. Seriously. If they can be outside all the drama and live happily in the shadow, they would.

When you want some nice fluff story to ease your heart, this one is a perfect choice. Though I'd have to say I cried at... more>> the later part of the 1st arc :"""" <<less

I really like this novel. I really do. It's so heartwarming and sweet. So ofc I MTL-ed my way to the end of arc 2 and stopped there. I thought it was still going to be translated and I waited; but it seems like both translators have stopped and dropped it (?) for some reason (╥﹏╥). Therefore I want to pick it up (up until arc 3 maybe? You guys don't understand how long these chapters are).

Read this novel if you are looking for the following:

  • ML always in some sort of misunderstanding or under mistreatment.
  • MC seems naïve but isn't. He's smart and gentle.
  • No stupid drama between the two's relationship. Don't read if you expect the ex-girlfriend/fiance trope. (None of this in the early chapters... I think. It's been a long time).
  • Not much face-slapping, thebut ofcy counterattack (MC will not let his hubby be unjustified).
  • Fluffy fluff (≧▽≦)

Reread and rerated. I originally placed 4⭐ but rereading it, made me like it more 4.3⭐. The story is focused on MC and ML. Also, u may find lot of flaws on the story arcs (and a litte monotonous). I honestly keep cursing since the MC has a reliable system (but worry wart), he should have maximized what he had. Anyway I do enjoy the story since I love the ML and MC. ML is 3D, not the usual perfect overbearing tyrant.

skipped arc 3 and now on arc 7 https://m (dot) fpzw (dot) com/book/109335/25666696. Html

While everyone praises, my ungrateful ass can't help but ask a question in first three chapters: So... he lived through many assassination attempts, but goes around without bodyguards and travels to places alone. Yay logic.

And also I don't like how it's written, the weird delivery of basic information and world information with deliberate attempt of concealing things is just a weird practice imo.

PS: Also that annoying system, why people think that a system that panics at every turn and distracts its host is cute is beyond me. Thanks. I'm not... more>> rating this, since I read too little, but it's enough for me to form primary opinion. <<less

I don't know if its just me but the author made the MC too timid and naive-like character as the story progress. However I still liked it, but not that much. Or maybe because im confused with the mtl. I will just wait for the translator to finish this novel so I can change my review

So far, the story feels well translated. The stile is quite tranquil and makes it very easy to relax even though the scheming going on in the background is vissious.

MC is a bit interesting, he doesn't talk much and is very gentle and calm and is also more compitent and experienced than the system. It feels like he is the one coaching the system to become an expert. THe system is hardworking and it is a bit funny to see it running around in concern for the host and the... more>> host is like - nah' I don't feel there's any danger.

ML seems very gentle but can't say more than that. <<less
