Transmigrating into a Mob Character to Rehabilitate the Villain Plan


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

In short, this is the tragic tale of a saint-like man who transmigrated into a web novel as a mob character and wanted to rehabilitate the villain, only to realize in the end, he became more and more villainous.

The ludicrous story:

Unable to bear hurting the villain he helped raise, but when it came to compensating with his own body, the unfortunate, straight male reader figured he’d better escape… …

Many years later, the same unfortunate saint rubbed his neck, asking, “This is a dog collar you put on me, isn’t it?”

The handsome villainous boss gave a glance with his elegant, almond-shaped eyes, and then replied with a devious, charming smile, “That’s to prevent you from running away again.”

“If I stay put, will you refrain from destroying the world?”

I read it all and I like it, but as for the story I can't give a very high mark. Author tried to be creative but exploiting emotional card spent my own emotional quota. I sigh at ML... you never understood MC at all. I sigh at MC... poor you being trapped in a situation you're powerless to.

I'm glad this got translated... the twists and turns are exciting because you never know what will come next. The twists and turns are also this novel's weak point because it's too twisty... more>> <:D

I like reading it first time, but never went back to reread it.

"[email protected] is luv" and MC in some sort of stockholm syndrome. No offense to translators. I think the author indulged herself and forgot that ML's and MC's characters had become so uninteresting. Substantive plots and side characters are tossed aside. Genuinely funny and wholesome content is discarded (i.e. MC being a superhero in modern china) to fixate on ML and MC being together in every second. ML is somehow very strong and very weak... that it's confusing and disappointing.

If you like The Path of the Cannon Fodder’s Counterattack, Hua Hua You Long, if you like abuse novel -- I don't judge you-- you'll enjoy this. <<less

I'm gonna be honest for a moment here. I hate this novel. Don't get me wrong, it is not the worst and a lot of people probably enjoyed it. It's very far from the worst.

It started good. The kind of transmigration in this novel is pretty unique. The translation was also well done.

But after the first 2 volumes it becomes an abomination. I had to take a break in the middle because it made me feel very uncomfortable. It was even nauseating. Very rapey scenes, non-existent character development, forgettable side... more>> characters.

This novel definetly isn't for everyone. It has a few good moments but the rest is overwhelmingly bad. If you like it, I'm very happy for you. <<less

This is really funny and cute, with a lot of action and adventure, a love story that slowly develops, and a plot that's quite different from your typical transmigration story. This was a novel that made me laugh, cry, and pull all-nighters to finish. I wouldn't be translating it if I didn't like it to this extent.

The humor is what drew me in before anything else, and I've long lost count of how many times I had to pause to laugh because of the MC's reactions or the situations he... more>> ends up in. I won't spoil much here, but this plays on the transmigration trope (among a few others) in a fun and ridiculous parody-like manner, but still ties it back to the plot.


There are both plot-intensive and cute/fluffy arcs. It's mostly action/adventure plus some cultivation in the first half, along with a lot of adorable moments that lay the foundation for the relationships of the main cast. The focus shifts to a romantic one in the latter half, but there's still plenty of humor and action.

I really like the MC. He's humorous and feels very real as a modern person abruptly thrown into a fantasy world: someone with knowledge and skills but isn't OP with insane cheats, and sometimes fails despite giving it his all. While he is fundamentally a very kind person, he recognizes that this new world has it's own rules, and tries his best within those bounds. The love interest can be quite pushy, but my favorite part about him is that he never forces past the MC's bottom line. The times when MC told him to seriously stop, in the end, he stopped. The side characters are also very likeable and have lives and goals outside of their relation to MC, which is something I rarely see but loved a lot. My only lament is that the author didn't give us more details about them.

This is my favorite type of love story, where the build up is gradual, and there are a lot of hints and character development before they finally get together. There's enough drama to keep it exciting, but not to levels of soap-opera extremes. Their love and devotion is 100% mutual, and the extent in which they both go to protect the other is enough to give you diabetes (and heartbreak). And for those of you wondering, yes there are are R18 scenes (only in the latter half though).

I'm not a fan of romances that rely on repeated misunderstandings or falling for a rival's schemes to create conflict, and thankfully, this has neither. It's far from smooth-sailing though, so be ready to prepare your heart. Seriously, prepare your heart. I just about died over the course of cheering them on, but worry not, the ending is very satisfying and sweet. Their interactions are not only adorable, but also ridiculously hilarious at times.

Reading this was definitely a roller coaster ride of emotions, but for the most part, it's very light-hearted and will leave you full of smiles. It's an excellent blend of action and romance, with conflicts stemming from both external forces and internal turmoil. If you like transmigration stories where the characters establish a bond of affection and trust before falling in love, plenty of plot that doesn't revolve around said romance, and a happy ending (plus some extra chapters that act as fluffy icing on the cake), I definitely recommend giving this a try.

One of the best yaoi stories that I have ever read in my life. This is coming from someone who basically read every yaoi manga that exists. The chemistry between the two MCs is so sweet, cute, sexy, and heart wrenching all at the same time.
The plot of the story is extremely unique as well.

Reading this, I smiled, laughed, squealed, and cried. Highly recommended, you won't regret it.

I'm gonna be honest, I really enjoyed the first two volumes of this novel and would probably have rated it 4/5. There was an excellent blend of plot and romance, with great character interactions not just between MC and ML but between all the characters.

However, starting in volume 3, the book started to go downhill. It seemed like the author was starting to give up entirely on the plot, so almost all the side characters began to disappear (if they did reappear, it was only one at a time). The... more>> extremely abrupt and awkward time skips did not help. As a result, the ML's personality suddenly changed in the blink of an eye, and the MC-ML dynamic was immediately shoved into the "oh now you're my love prisoner" territory. There were also a parade of smut scenes that felt uncomfortable because of the rapidity of the aforementioned personality change, and started to get rather dull since they followed pretty stereotypical BL dynamics. I did like the ending to volume 3 though, since it brought the plot back on track. However, Volume 4 made it worse with nonconsensual (well, definitely extremely extremely dubious consent) scenes between MC and ML. Stuff like the memory loss plot point was also done in a rather cliche manner.

I will say I love the side characters in this novel though. I appreciated the fun start, and only wish the rest of the novel had followed that. I think the novel would have benefited from abandoning the time skips so the MC doesn't feel left out of the plot. <<less

HOLY CRAP!!! As one reviewer already said, this is probably one of the best if not the best Yaoi/shounen ai I have ever read. All the main characters are sooooo good and the romantic development seems so much more real than any romance I have read about. It is first built on trust instead of lust. This is the best kind of romance, where you really know how much the characters love each other and the depths of how much they will grow their relationship. Obviously this is a slow... more>> burn romance, and this is slow burn in the best way. It scorches my heart because everything is too hot even with the smallest interactions, or contact, or smile. Like my heart is freaking burnt to a crisp right now, how am I alive???!!! How the hell will I continue this amazing story if my heart's already not working!! <<less

i had so many expectations for this one ok. I wasn't thinking it would be like the grandmaster of demonic cultivation level with all the intricate backstories and worldbuilding but shit, this novel just went downhill harder than a skydiver with a broken parachute dude.

we start off so promising, there's a good premise and interesting characters, the main guy isn't completely useless and has a decent personality and a goal- to raise evil brat properly. we get good exposition, some background of the cultivation systems. main dude's whole refinement thing... more>> is interesting and we get the shifu who's cool and waiting to be expanded upon. I HAD EXPECTATIONS OK. sh*t WAS GOOD.

then volume 3 came and suddenly main's personality becomes nonexistent, his personality is like wet toilet paper, he has to be saved all the time and inexplicably starts to fall in love with evil brat. evil brat starts doing creepy ass sh*t and the dude's like -oh I don't like it *moans* ah jue do it harder - with a side of r*pe and Stockholm syndrome. let emphasize we now have a shitton of RAPE!!!! somehow more than all the other bls i've read before.

without mentioning all the rape, the plotline also goes downhill it's like super rushed and like no characters but evil brat and main guy are like mentioned, good brat literally is there for some reunion feel goods to pretend this thing isn't all about the f*cking now. hahaha did I mention that? the plot is sidelined so the two can f*ck in increasingly more disturbing and rapey scenarios. like. that's the whole plotline v.3-end. r*pe porn, dubcon porn, stokholm syndrome porn..... etc. THERE'S SO MANY PLOTHOLES, AND PEOPLE HE JUST LIKE... FORGETS ABOUT? LIKE WTF DUDE YOU SPENT ALL THIS TIME TRYING TO GIVE THE READERS SIDE PEOPLE AND LIKE ALL A SUDDEN YOU CUT THEM OUT LIKE U GOT AMNESIA????

like I am so disappointed. I literally created this account just to post this like I'm so angry. it wouldn't have been as bad if this was a straight up porn novel, but it had lots of potential to be a good story and not just a f*ckfest with bland stock characters, like legit, I don't even remember their names now and it's been like what, 15 min since I finished the novel? I'm sorry but all you 5 star people are like delusional??? vol 1-2 was decently mediocre and 3-4+extra is just porn there's no plot anymore. the parasite in authors brain ate it like it was main guys as*hole and he was evil brat.

wait lololololol the premise of this story is about some guy complaining about some sh*t ending and author did a sh*t ending, truly some great irony right there.


ps. if you really still want to read it after reading through this rant read vol. 1-2 then hope that it gets popular enough for some fanfiction writer to write a satisfactory ending. the other half read for smut if you're into that type of shit.

*spit* I spent 5 hours on this piece of sh*t peace out <<less

I really enjoyed the first two volumes of the story, however the 3rd and 4th volume started to get duller. The side characters stopped appearing, the MC seemed to stop caring about anyone but his loveinterest, and as much as I love their interactions, having other people mixed in made it that much more entertaining.

Especially volume three was a hard read for me, volume 4 seems to get a bit better, however at this point it's way too late to save. Also it's barely connected to the rest of the... more>> volumes. Really.. It's a strange way to end the story, but I guess I'll take it.

The MC starts out really nice, and turns into a weak and whimpy guy which I'm really not that fond of. Also the love interest forces himself a bit too much on the MC for my taste. <<less

Don't be fooled by the title, description, or yaoi genre -- this series is surprisingly genuine and takes its plot seriously.

It's not just slapstick humor or smut (there is none in the entire first book). If I didn't see this was marked "yaoi, " I would have thought it was a normal transmigrator/reincarnator xianxia story.


When the author of his favorite LN suddenly gives the story a bullsh*t ending, our main character angrily takes to the forums to write a scathing review. Most of the main characters die and the villain... more>> destroys the world?! Unacceptable!

Little did he expect to wake up the next morning in the beginning of the story -- and as one of the first mob characters to be killed, too! Determined to survive his new life as a cannonfodder character, the main character decides to reform the villain. But his valiant efforts seem to be having unexpected results...


The few characters who have been introduced so far are pretty well-developed. The main character is earnest and hard-working, and the villain is adorably tsundere. (Later, sexily yandere.)


The author actually created his/her (?) own world, cultivation system, monetary system, etc. I appreciate that it's not just a copy-paste of the usual xianxia world. The writing is nice and detailed without being too much of an information dump, and the pacing makes this an easy read to sink into.


Winter's translation is one of the best I've ever read. Perfect grammar, engaging language choices, attention to detail. The great translation quality was a big part of what helped me to really start to enjoy this series. Unfortunately, people keep stealing and reposting Winter's translations on for-profit aggregator sites, so he/she is dropping this series at the end of Volume 1. Such a damn shame... Winter, if you're reading this, thank you for all your hard work!

Another group may be picking this up starting in Volume 2.


For now, I'm going to give this 5 stars based on the quality of the chapters that are currently translated. I'll update this review later.

Edit: Winter was kind enough to post a super detailed summary of all of Book 2, and let me just say... this TOTALLY deserves 5 stars. A yaoi LN with actual feels, likable female characters, tragedy, and really well-written romance scenes? WHAT?!


For those of you who are wondering (you know who you are... ;P), there are apparently a lot of R-18 scenes much later on in the story. (Especially starting in Book 3.) It will be a long while until then, though, so read this for the actual plot. You won't regret it. <<less

The first 2-3 volumes were good till the ML decided to lowkey sexually molest/almost r*pe the MC... like wtf?!?!

It might just be my personal preference, but teasing MLs that want to get reactions out of MCs is fine and all till ya start harassing/molesting the MC, cause at that point, I would want to report the ML to the police and get a restraining order on the ML. I don't understand why the author tries to romanticize r*pe when the MC in the novel explicitly tells the ML to stop... more>> his harassment, especially when the MC couldn't recognize the ML (who was in disguise as a random stranger). For real, if any one was sexually harassed by a random person (didn't know the harasser was his/her lover), it is perfectly normal to feel disgusted, yet somehow the author makes the MC like?/feel pleasant? about being sexually molested? I am so confused on why/how the author thought that these molesting scenes would have worked out in any way...

So in summary, everything was good up till the last volume where the MC kept on being molested/harassed/almost-raped/teased by the ML and even somehow easily forgave the ML, like why/how?!?! I guess the author was trying to pass the point, "love is blind", across in the last volume, cause if that was the case, then I can only agree that love is indeed blind, so blind that the MC tolerated being sexually harassed and almost raped and even easily forgave the harasser/potential rapist. <<less

Edit (2019) : I warned everyone back in 2017. You all got fooled.

I slogged through the chinese raws thinking it would get less cliche but it turned out to be yet another story with a blushing protagonist and a rapey, controlling and possessive lover. You know the drill: the protagonist protests about bottoming and wallows in his feelings of emasculation, while the rapey lover is so full of love for the protagonist that you'll never see him bottom out of consideration, or you know, take no for an answer. If... more>> that's your idea of sweet and fluffy, then good for you. <<less

So I've finished up to volume 2 and so far, the story is really good. Really like the plot and absolutely love the ML's jealous and possessive moments. Another thing I really appreciate is that the MC is not a damsel permanently in distress and actually has a usable brain.

But now that I'm ready to start on volume 3, I can't access the site Bonbonbltranslations because the IP address couldn't be found or something like that T_T Am I the only one facing this problem? Can someone help please?

One of the more amusing plots of transmigration that uses all the same types of tropes as other stories but still makes it unique in it's own way.

... more>>

After reading his favorite online xianxia novel's conclusion, the MC curses at the story and author for such a horrific ending of the villain pretty much destroying the world. He curses the main characters to be gay. Low and behold, he ends up transmigrating into a minor cannon fodder character in the story that never had a complete background. He ends up meeting both the protagonist and the villain when they are kids and sort of becomes their nanny to try to re-educate the villain into law abiding person. However, his "education" ended up changing both the protagonist and villain in misunderstood and hilarious ways.

The villain's black belly ways are reminiscent of the seme in "Legendary Master's Wife", however, he still retains his respect for the MC. As for the MC, he's similar to "My Disciple Died Yet Again", where he dies multiple times. Each time he dies, he goes back to modern times. The only difference is that when he goes back into the story, a time skip happens, even though he retains his original body. It's a good coping mechanism for the age gaps and the potential shotacon.


Overall, a cute and amusing twist on the same old transmigration into a story plot. <<less

Well, it started well in the first two volumes of the novel. Then in the third novel things started to get a bit boring but in the fourth volume the writer just completely ignored the plot and left a lot of plot-holes that I was expecting them to be gone in the extras but I was once again dissapointed.

And this without talking about all the dub-con/non-con things the ML does to the MC, he almost rapes him...[saying he can't hold on... like the f*ck are you a f*cking beast f*ucking... more>> animal, cabrón de mierda] ; im truly mad with this writer for messing up the novel tbh we didnt even get a good f*cking end

The first two volumes were so good. MC was growing his own unique skill and he was getting really good at it! He's a really likable character, and his interactions with the protag and villain are fun to read. MC's growing romance with the villain is so cute!

However, in volume 3, it feels like the nice and fluffy story I was reading turned dark and sad... ... more>>

MC is so weak and he's basically being dragged around by people like a ragdoll. And the smut is kind of uncomfortable to read... Feels one-sided and rapey cuz MC can barely move and he is so uncomfortable with homosexuality...

It's a great story! Super cute, a funny novel that transitions into romance fairly smoothly without coming across as too forced. The one thing I'm hot and cold on is the transitions between arcs.


On the one hand, it's fairly unique and interesting that the author keeps being sent back to his world upon "death" only to have to go back when he realizes the villain is straying further from the path of rehabilitation. This plot device was also a really nice way to merge his identity back on earth with the new world, rather than leaving readers hanging wondering what happened with family/another body possibly stuck back on earth like a lot of other novels do. However, sometimes the way the MC falls in and out of the world can get a little too convenient, you know?


But, I'm probably just overthinking it since it really is a very good story. And the smut scenes are satisfying, even if I'm just using MTL.

I'm with all the others who said that they liked the first two volumes, but not the others. Too much rape, not enough good plot development/story. It almost felt like reading two completely different stories (first two volumes compared to the rest). It felt like the MC changed too much and gave up the things I liked about him all for being raped by the ML and being broken to pieces. Sucks because the ideas of the story were really good, but everything kept going back to development of this... more>> rapist ML. The MC started out great, developing into a character of the world he transmigrated into really well, going through ups and downs, encountering interesting stories, then all of a sudden he is just a s*x toy for the ML and there is just a lot of cat and mouse play the rest of the storyline. I am like some others, I had to stop reading because it started to feel like sandpaper on my brain, then stumbled upon it again later on. <<less

Quite good so far; translation quality is excellent, the characters have a solid base to start with. The premise is unique and the reader can already see all of the mounting problems that the MC will eventually discover and face. The story is still in its early stages but I appreciate the interaction between the narrator and his two little OP-to-be brothers; the introductory chapter also shows great humor.

It's a fresh perspective on xianxia with the addition of an unusual BL pairing. We'll see how the addition of one new... more>> character will topple the foundations of a classic xianxia story, eventually saving the world with the power of love... or something like that.
