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?”

It's like opening that 'surprise me box' from amazon to find the contents are 1001% more worth than you paid for because I wasn't expecting that this novel would be this good. The dynamic, the flow of the story, and the end-game are quite exciting. Every time the story escalates and when the H scenes come out; it feels extremely rewarding! At least for me. There's also a balance between action and romance and it's not forced but it's kinda feels a little bit rushed? But given the plot, the... more>> sense of rush is kinda reasonable and it's kinda what makes things exciting, y'know. Also I've learnt a huge portion of cultivating terminology from here. From all the wuxia novels I've read, I think they've used up almost all of the terminology and it just describes how vast the dimension of this story is. I really wished I read this novel as an opener to wuxia novels lol.

Though it's undeniable that it's just another transmigrating story where the MC needs to hug the ML's thigh and his middle, I find that there's elements that made this novel different from the other transmigrating novels that I've read, thus making it very special. <<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, s*xy, 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.

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

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, s*xily 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

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

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.

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. Very much looking forward to reading more. <<less

Completely in love with this novel. Would recommend it to anyone. All the recommendations were correct on how great this story is

side note, I'm glad to see someone else is picking up this novel. It was upsetting to read the last person decided to drop the translations (with in reason). But still decided to summaries vol 2 but not the last 2 volumes. Leaving everyone on an extreme cliff hanger with no intentions of ever summarizing the last two volumes. It was a hard pill to swallow being left there... more>> with no way of knowing how the story would be finished. But none the less I will re pick up where the new group started in hopes this group will finish the story that has capitvated many. <<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

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

This strangely has a very captivating starting plot, I literally cannot put this down because my heart yearns for more fluffiness of the mc's blooming romance.

The story is so amazing. It feels like youre the MC, lol, since he read transmigration stories like us, and never imagining that he would be tranmigrated. But yeah, im gonna go easy on commemting because it might come true. Lololol. I cant stop grinning until I have to wait for the update. Lol. Im so evious of people who already finished this. But I... more>> will wait patiently! Be still, my heart ♥

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!

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 homos*xuality...

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 that's your idea of sweet and fluffy, then good for you.

This is one of the best romance novels I've read. I actually cried reading this (Don't worry this does NOT end up as a tragedy). I love how this novel shows the development of their feelings throughout each volume. I could really tell how important MC was to ML and why ML loves him so much. The MC isn't really badass like other MC's you've probably read about but if you're just looking for an amazing romance BL to read I highly recommend this one.

This is by far one of my favorite Bl Chinese novel! It has a cute storyline and enough of the cute parts, the drama and the action (including both fighting others and on the bed! XP)

This novel really is one that I just can't let go of and will continue to read because it really is enjoyable. People might not like the cute and weak bottom with the fierce and forceful top but this novel does it right so try reading first before you judge!!!

An adorable yet with the hint for the right masculinity can be seen in each characters....

That kind of characters are sometimes too hard to come by in BL stories. I like! *thumbs up*

The cute, beautiful, elegant, strong, timid, scaredy cat and slightly naive MC seems to be struggling just right LOL. though its the truth. I don't like those stories where MC gets transported then instantly has OP powers without working for it.

... more>> BUT of course I'm not gonna go and say theres no stories that MC will not struggle.

One of the things I like in this story is the part where they killed a person and were trying to get over it together. AND they are struggling for it too....

Many MC became cold hearted people after having this kind of situation no vomiting, no emotional turmoil (well there are some but just slight), no burrying the the dead body (no, seriously most stories don't even care about burrying, they just leave it there to rot... an open invitation for investigation to happen)

but abyways this story is one of my likes translator-san that I hope is a guy, keep up the good work! (゚∇^d) <<less

The tag of yaoi in this story make you know it was a pg rate boy love. It not an innocent shounen ai.

In volume 1, it was a bit slow with the main character bonding and fighting scene in detail description but I enjoy the villain and MC cute exchange along with the villain protective gesture to MC.

Until volume 2, there started the pg-15 rate.. I mean no *** scene but it become closer to that. The jerking, the french kiss and so on but no penetration, if you dont felt comfortable stop reading at volume 1.. Their relationship was changing more to 'comfort' each other and MC still didn't recognize his feeling although he was was showing opposite reaction. The male lead basically appeared only 20% of all the story so just ignored him.

While in volume 3, the author really not holding back his/her imagination *drooling*. This was where a hardcore fujoshi like me was squealing and fangirling to the max, their romance begin and so did their first sad ending. It was a hardcore pg-18.I was tearing up at the end of this volume (I dont want to be spoiler, read it up lazy ass)

Of course it doesn't stop there, in the volume 4, it was so sweet how the villain trying to woo his lover back (spoiler: MC lost memory), if in the v1, the MC tried to get villain's attention but in v4, villain tried to get mc's love. And yes, there a lot of pg-18 rate stuff. Doesnt mean his lover lost his memory, the villain will hold himself back. And now im waiting for more.

honestly i’m surprised by how emotionally heartfelt and caring the MC was towards the ML (villain) and protagonist. Like by the amount of emotion it made me feel. Their interactions are really genuine and really makes you want the best for them. I began this expecting another generic levelling up bad attitude ML, but he’s really cute, and furthermore, really cares for MC in his way. I love the family and trust (like someone mentioned in another review) that there is.... really excited for another update!

Damn ninjas cutting onions! (ಥ﹏ಥ) This is sooo good. The translator did a good job. But this is too good and I was getting impatient, so I tried to MTL, and I am complately hooked (Dispite MTLing this WN, the hot and smutty scene feels so strong ƪ (♥ﻬ♥) ʃ)

This is NOT a light-hearted story. There`s comedy, but the tragic plot line is killing me (Especially around the 30th last ep). The cemistry is good. I love this Villain ML x Mob MC ship *kyaaa (*≧∀≦*)

... more>>

There are a lot of heart breaking scene. There are 4 Volume and the MC will die 4 times. And every fu*king time I would cry (especially the last volume). When ML said : "He didn`t die, he is tired, so he is sleeping" 😭😭

ML chara love development is worth anticipating. At Vol 1 ML has tsundere side, and then he become a possesive little brother, and finnaly become a yandere lover. His final chara is a patient lover (He is getting too used to patiently waiting for him 🤣 🤣)

It has a nicely done ending. Didn`t fell rushed at all


Conclusion : It`s highly recomended to BL Lover or Non-BL Lover. This is coming from someone who does not love BL, and only love Chara dev, Tragic plot, and Rom-Com (I hate too much angst, so I prefer comedic plot with some tragic twist in the end of the volume 😉. So I can guarantee that this will not tear your heart -- only a little bit breaking it 😋--) <<less
