After graduating, the poor Duan Jiaze inherited a private zoo. He signed a contract and welcomed Luya, Daji, Bai Suzhen, black bear and other “animals”.

Since then, he was so worried that he has been dreaming about customer traffic.

Since then, the first zoo to implement a classification system has appeared, anyone under 21 years old cannot visit Luya.

Since then, demons, ghost and monks from the previous era are seething.

Many years later, Duan Jiaze and Luya imitated a dialogue at the annual meeting.

Duan Jiaze: Luya didn’t even attend elementary school, he has been a jobless citizen wandering for thousand of years. Afterwards he found a job, that is, to be an animal at the zoo.

Luya: …

I will recommened this for those who like light-hearted element (which is really attractive to me) and can endure slow burn romance. (I really enjoy the dynamics of the couple, from foes (kind of) to friends and lovers)

i love

to encourage everyone to read it OR YOU CAN WATCH THE ANIME IN NOVEMBER 2019~

and especially if you are looking for a mixture of cute animals + a dash of mythology + slow burn romance + quirky characters + some cultivation + a dead app system +... more>> not much dog blood drama + building a business

The side characters are rather entertaining too

Spoiler

i am so amused by the employee that pay to be employeed because of some horror stuff oh well

[collapse]

ML is such an idiotic tsundere sometime I wonder if he was the bottom instead of the top LOL

Some moments I enjoyed from chapter 1- 155:

Spoiler
  • How the zoo's fans shipped ML and MC pet/owner relationship. Its so cute......
  • And obviously our straight MC slowly getting bent by ML as the chapters continue like he allow ML to kiss him when they are not tgt?
  • they actually did IT~~~
  • cute baby penguin, and hence a family of three was born
    [collapse]
For those curious about when the super slow burn romance start:

Spoiler

as for chapter 50 and so on, ML seems to be showing signs of falling for our MC

[collapse]

For those who are curious as to when

they got together.....

Spoiler

They got together in chapter 142 and had s*x 13 chapters later HEH

[collapse]

And also curious about MC....

Spoiler

a little water dragon

this is a cute story about raising animals, building a zoo, gaining fame, making riches and raisng awareness about environment with a side dish of a slow burn romance between an idiot and a bigger idiot. Did I mention the abundance of the cute animals?

So far this novel hooked me a lot.

Don't mind about the rating below 4! Afterall these 1-star is I'm believe from the yaoi/sho-ai haters.

This novel is cute and light, love to see MC interaction with ML. Altough sometimes want to slap the ML 😂 because damnn he to pridefull, but at the same time can't hate him.

Well my opinion, if you likes read Cub association, maybe this novel your taste too. The animals is so cute ❤ raising a zoo, and etc.

... more>>

This has to be one of the cutest projects so far, and a really nice read too. The animals are cute, the interactions between the protagonists are super cute (tbh, the slightly hetare, bird-brained gong is really nice and refreshing!), and the translator is doing a great job of making the novel a nice read. So far not much has happened in terms of action or suspense, but this kind of nice, atmospheric read is also very charming, I think. I hope the translator continues the project, and again many,... more>> many thanks!!! ♡ <<less

Characters: 4/5

I like the personalities of the demons, and the MC seems interesting enough (although there's nothing really special about him). However, honestly he's a little too useless / mediocre; the success is so much due to his golden fingers that it's a little sad. Not that bad though, since it's not like he doesn't do anything, but still. That said, he does have an inherent gift with animals (specifically, with fish) and it's amusing to watch. It's also funny how this story weaves in supernatural elements and mythology in... more>> a comical and lighthearted way. The animals also give this story a layer of meng.

Even at this point, there's barely any relationship developments between the MC and ML. However, it seems promising, and I personally like when the romance develops slowly.

Plot: 4/5

I like the idea of the zoo and the system, but this is coming from someone that enjoys OP settings since it's a serious golden finger. The development of the story actually feels very logical and step by step, so there's no instant success or anything. Rather, we see the process as the zoo comes alive.

I'm looking forward to more!

Writing & Translation: 4/5

Definitely some grammar mistakes, but it's not too bad. Furthermore, the translator has many notes at the end of the chapters explaining some mythological or cultural context, which is much appreciated.

Also, there's illustrations sometimes (does this have a manga adaption?? Apparently it's getting an anime!!) that is SO cute. <<less

This story is absolutely damn good! A pity too short. Would love more extra chapters.

Love the interaction between the MC and the supporting characters. I feel like I could take an exam about Chinese Mythical Beast after reading this lol.

Also love the ML. The tsundere ML lol. At first I thought our ML would be an overbearing president type but never thought he'll be the kind of shy one at times!

Enjoyed reading this. Love the extra chapters, the spin off and the Ascension part lol. It would be nice though... more>> if it's a bit longer.

Looking for a story with the same kind of tone as this. Pm me if you know some!

Love xx <<less

the concept of the novel is flawed. The realism is severely lacking. Even though this is fantasy, the people's IQ are too low, they're way too simpleminded.

How could the finance worker not know how the whole zoo is upgraded? And yes the Luya can pressure the other animals to obey but how can the audience not feel suspicious about birds coexisting so peacefully? And the children being able to touch the birds is really dangerous since children are immature and can also unintentionally hurt the birds. Also there's no way... more>> the MC can let the Luyo in bird form perch on his bare forearm. The talons would no doubt pierce his skin and get him infected. The reporters think MC loves animals but then why MC eat pigs and sheep and duck etc when he "loves birds and animals"? And there's loads of other parts that defy logic.

tl;dr if u care about logic dont read this novel. If u love light-hearted novels to the point of ignoring discrepancies then go ahead <<less

One of the best novels I have read about fluff, fantasy and animal rearing. Makes you develop enviroment and fauna awareness, its funny, the romance has a very good pace and each character has their own niche and backstory development that wont disappoint!
