After Lin Zisheng, whose whole family was ruined by a white lotus, woke up once more, he discovered that his mind now had an additional so-called ‘system.’

[Greetings to Host-daren, I am Blingbling, the glowing-in-brilliance System 001, a White Lotus Rescue System for ‘Leaving an Everlasting Good Reputation for the White Lotus’. From henceforth, you will embark upon a journey with me through various worlds to save endangered White Lotuses. Please advance for our great cause!]

Lin Zisheng: hehe… …

And so…

System: cho-chotto matte! Host-daren, that is the white lotus we are supposed to save, y-you can’t force her onto the road of no return!

Lin Zisheng: An early death means an early reincarnation, I am freeing her from endless suffering.

System: … … [Host’s words are highly logical, I actually have no words to retort…QAQ]

5 stars for the story and the previous translators~~

As for the current translator Fantasy World Online... Are you serious? Paywalling the chapters after arc 2 chapter 11? You are a translator, not the author. It's not your work. To profit off of it this way is absolutely disgusting.

If you want profit then do it like other translators do, as a donation or early access. All translators do great work and they should be recompensed in some way. That is perfectly fine. But to completely paywall it? How big is your... more>> ego.

It's incredibly disappointing as I'm loving this story so much. Luckily I do know Chinese and I'd much rather go read the original and support the original author. But what about those that don't know Chinese and have to mtl?

If you want to make it completely pay to read, then go get the license first. Seriously. How infuriating. And it's not even pay per chapter, its pay per month just to HAVE ACCESS to locked chapters. Are you kidding me? You guys are really regarding this story as completely yours huh. And saying the amount is "little".... So $5/month just for access for an in progress content that you don't even own is "little"?? And its PER NOVEL.

Apologies for the rant but this has just absolutely infuriated me. <<less

I did not rate it cause I finished the raw version of the book.

But I have to say, I like the overall plot and concept of the book.

I like both MC and ML.
Also the villains on different worlds and the main villain of the story.

Some details have been lost to me but I will put the main spoiler of the story from my understanding from google-sensei...

... more>>

100% sure???


At your own risk!


You sure want to spoil the ending thing?


Fine! HERE IT IS!!! From my understanding of the ending... MC and ML are from the distant future. Very distant future. Do you want more?

This is what from my understanding:
In their current era; after thousands of years of human genes kept evolving becoming more and more powerful and perfect genes. The former inferior genes has long been extinct. Apparently there was a long-lost ancient gene called 'White Lotus' gene on their parent Blue Star (Earth highly chance they meant) in the novel's lore.
There was even a legend: Whoever has or uses the White Lotus gene can bring endless disaster to the people around that person. If this disaster kept on expanding, even the whole world is destroyed. So the descendants of humanity who survived the catastrophe in all those years ago, didn't want it to happened again.
So the Empire (where MC and ML are from) made a new game called: White Lotus. This game was made to make everyone be aware of the of how deadly the White Lotus gene is. This made people go to the hospitals to check their genes for fragments of the White Lotus gene to have it removed from their body. There is a reason for me to put this explanation.

As for MC's and ML's position in their world? From my understanding is the MC and ML knows each other quite well. They were already lovers in their real world.


MC is the programmer of the "game".
MC paid countless hours to create the game. As he about to complete the game, he didn't know how or why did a loophole pop up in the game system. In addition this loophole in the system cannot be fixed (you'll know why). Thanks to the loophole the former tester was actually locked in the game and couldn't come out. In order to figure out what happened, MC decides to also enter the game. But what he didn't know is the ML actually followed him.
Thus the main reason why MC was inside the game.



ML is the provider of core technology of the "game" so he has higher authority than MC.
When MC entered the game ML followed him. During that time, ML sealed (abuse of power!) all of MC's memories to make him fall in love at him again.
Main reason for ML to entered the game was to get along with his wifey and another reason was because the "game" has the courage to marry his wifey (I think it meant the actual game like making MC marries an NPC because that how you need to play and finish the game) !
But once he entered the "game" he found the so-called loophole in system was.


Truth about the whole thing!

Anyways MC put too much attention and feelings on the process of writing for the game. To make a more realistic portrayal of White Lotus, MC searched for countless materials about White Lotus for the game. To the point the he kept on updating again and again until it was a perfect White Lotus. As a result of MC's seriousness and dedication, the White Lotus in the "game" gained actual consciousness and feelings. And those feelings were towards MC and wanted to marry him...
So the "game" made a loophole in the system causing people (or tester) to investigating the problem. In the end the problem was not being resolve but also added a problem on detaining the people inside game. The system was trying to get MC's attention by causing more problems for him to look into it and trap him.
Of course it worked and MC went inside the game to look for this problem.
As possessive ML is, he followed wifey to the game and found out the whole charade...
After all he whoever tries to take his wifey away... Say bye-bye to life.

MC is sensible, very strong willed and dominating when need be.

It's the first time I've ever seen a uke MC

beat the sh*t out of their gong, even if he (MC) was going easy and ML-sama didn't put up a fight

It was quite surprising.

I'm eager to learn more about his character and seeing future developments in his relationship with his ML.

I hope the new translator-sama taking over from IAmABanana will take good care of this novel ~♥

Up to PyonYan's review, my 5 stars also for author and previous translator only !

This is my first time here when the translator ask for your money to read their translation when they don't even consider to ask readers to support author instead. It would be different when it's donation as appreciation, this is obviously marketing other goods for themselves.

Well, for story it's really worth to read. I hope there would be other translator taking this project. I wish I could be fluent in chinese and I will translate it... more>> by myself and also support the author, sigh. <<less

i can’t say for much about the novel currently since I am just starting and currently in the arc 3. But my overall opinion about story is typical quick transmigration story with but different settings that is all nothing more or less. For those who want smooth reading without much complicated things it is good story. But not worth the money tough.

Current translator in fantasy world or whatever site is really shameless. His or her translation is unedited and not accurate but still they need money. I won’t say a... more>> thing if their translation was correct, edited properly and they licensed the novel. Translator don’t have all those standards. <<less

How should I put this? It's... not good. How on earth do you expect to write a good romance when you're time skipping every bit of development? We don't get to know how the ML won the MC over in terms of friendship, nor how their relationship was when MC accepted his feelings (with no internal dialogue to let us know what MC is thinking), and then goes on to ... more>>

give us sacrificial love endings and suicide endings, when it hasn't even been revealed in any way that MC actually loves ML. Did MC commit suicide because his mission was done? Or did he love him? We don't know. Anyway, an ending like that should have made me cry, but I felt like I'd read a detailed synopsis of a plot rather than an actual story, so I felt nothing.


On that note, isn't the whole point of the story neglected?

We were advertised a story about a man being transmigrated into a variety of different stories and offing the FL in some way, but to do so, he's going against the mission he's given. But as long as he raises his favorability with her once, it doesn't matter anymore and he can do whatever? I get that his system is an idiot, but it didn't say anything at all when he was manipulating the white lotus' downfall (in a messy way, I might add. He was just going to let himself get hit by a car? This was so s*upid).


In the world of written yaoi, there are some pretty good ones, occasionally some incredible ones, but most of them are tr*sh. They're poorly written with shoddy developments and archetypes, and things get rapey too often. This one isn't as bad as that. But it's definitely no Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil. <<less

This novel is actually really good, just like any great counter-attack quick transmigration. I was enjoying reading it until it was picked up by the latest translator.. But unfortunately they turned out to be a shameless person so now still waiting for another translator to pick this wonderful novel up!

Rating for latest translator: 2/5 (FWO)
[unedited, inaccurate (doesnt just choose one word to describe), explainations or notes are all over the place (some are even redundant), just confusing & a headache to read overall + they had arc 3... more>> onwards on a paywall. The only reason why it isnt just 1/5 is because its not mtl] <<less

Really enjoying this story, it’s a good mix of fluff and dogs blood. Such a shame the latest translation is behind a paywall (and in need of a good proofreader).

it's nice to see a MC who can kick *ss as well as scheme with the best of them. There were a few worlds I didn't like and one was confusing since with MTL there were at least two family members with the name Lin Biao and one Lin Bo. The sentences would talk about Lin Biao and Lin Biao and you just have to guess who or let it go. Hopefully our lovely translator will fix that little problem when they get to that world. The ending was interesting... more>> and overall I thought it was fairly good. Not a lot of explicit smut (fade to black for harmony and all that) and the MC doesn't get eaten right away so there is time for feelings to grow through the first few worlds. Looking forward to more translated chapters. <<less

It's annoying when people give bad reviews but don't even finish the story or even the arc that they are reading. Why review something you didn't complete????? Makes no sense.

For people upset at the first arc, it makes sense if you actually read the whole arc, and by the whole arc..... I mean arc 1 isn't finished until the MC goes into the 3rd world. Your questions will be answered there!

To sum it up



  • The ML is not a thot/playboy/man whore. It was an act to fool his dad. ML is disgusted with touching others!
  • The ML didn't fall in love with the second male lead the first time around because his soul was different. Has nothing to do with gender! He likes the MC's SOUL.
  • The MC was disgusted with ML at first because he thought the ML was a man whore, but they become friends and he learns the ML isn't that type. The ML chased the MC for months with sincere feelings, after that the MC was indifferent towards ML and feels as long as ML really cares about him then he's ok staying with him! He only beat ML because he FORCED a kiss on him aggressively. He forgave him because they are FRIENDS (the author time skipped a few months).
  • The ML kept with the white lotus and tortured her in the previous life because of REVENGE. She killed his best friend! He didn't love her!!!!

Hope that clears up anyone saying stuff without reading the whole thing. If you still don't like the ARC that is fine but don't criticize things that are clearly explained. Read the whole thing!

It's so much like FoD. I know alot of people would probably criticize me for comparing them, but it honestly is like it. And the arcs are all interesting too. This is definitely one of the better QT novels on this site, even if their isn't alot of translated chapters right now.

Seriously, I couldn’t finished the first arc. The plot is just that bad. All the characters’ actions don’t make any sense at all.

Never-mind that ML is a typical yandere type and the female lead is a typical s*upid green tea b*tch, but even the MC character doesn’t add up at all.

For example, he always feel disgusted by the ML, who falls in love at first sight and became a stalker, and only tolerates ML because he want some extra points. After ML confessed (and also forced kissing him) he didn’t agree and just beat the ML. But the day after that, he suddenly become okay with being a couple with ML even if the mission doesn’t require him to be with ML.

And the plot are filled with many other big holes that make all characters seem s*upid.

So I only really only read the first arc but I can already tell that things were not gonna get any better. I didn't appreciate the way they made the white lotus looked, like with their description of her she should have been described as a fake one to begin with. The fact that the ML fell in love with him at first glance the second time around, like why not the first time too? Even weirder the ML likes women but can so easily switch to liking men. The... more>> ML was also described as being a thot. He jumped from women to women but he's alright. But the fake white lotus jumped between 2 men and she's intolerable, admittedly behind their backs but you know there isnt that much difference between the two of them. The ML started chasing the MC and the MC pretends not to know his thoughts when the system can literally let him know exactly what he's thinking. I just decided not to continue reading, it would really be nice to have better justified reasons to hate on characters and not discriminate on gender. And just better plots with better characters and villains as well. <<less

I'm going to waiting until it ends to give any review, but so far, I like this story. My cup of tea.

And I like the concept of plot of the white lotus female lead to death in this novel or every novel, because honestly I hate every female lead in bl novel. So annoying and always acting like a pure white lotus lady, while in the heart is black as tar. Typical, but, I enjoy the torture of the female lead. Need to vent out my anger to something I... more>> dislike, like this one, the female lead is my main target. Though... I like the idea of the love rival got tortures, too... My mind is getting more and more black after I read these kind of novel. Maybe I will transform to a black lotus spectator that loves to watches every love rival or annoying people in this novel get torment.

Gonna keep on check with the update, or maybe I will start to read the raw, nonetheless, not a problem. Because this is my cup of tea. :) <<less
