Transmigrating Into The Heartthrob’s Cannon Fodder Childhood Friend

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.
[Gentle Control] was an urban danmei novel that was tagged with ‘sadistic love’ and ‘coercion’.

The protagonist shou, Xie Sui, was a proud son of heaven. He had an illustrious family background, was cold and removed from desire, and attracted many (psychopathic) admirers. From the gentle senior to the paranoid president, to the haughty and proud arch-enemy, these big guys were all top leaders of their respective fields, yet they were all crazy about him.

After pushing him down a series of mentally and physically abusive paths, the three of them decided to join hands to destroy the Xie Family, imprison Xie Sui, crush his pride, and turn him into a pet that could only rely on them.

While the crowd of readers howled “Wuwuwu the feels~”.

Song Yu was already so angry he was going crazy. Not wanting to read any more of this eye-searingly bad novel, he cursed, “Idiots.” and hurried offline.

As a result, when he woke up, he’d transmigrated.

He’d transmigrated to become the Third Young Master of the Song Family in the novel, who had only been briefly mentioned in passing, would die of a terminal illness, and was Xie Sui’s childhood friend.

Song Yu was terribly upset. At the same time, he’d already come to a decision in his heart––those three idiots, had better not think about wanting to get close to his little childhood friend!

*

Xie Sui was born cold-hearted. In two lifetimes, he’d never tasted the sweetness of love, nor had he ever experienced the feeling of being protected.

After destroying three big families and personally killing his enemies, he was reborn back to when he was 15 years old. He had to hide the violence and coldness in his heart and pretend to be the youth with a gentle and clean appearance that he’d been in the past.

Everything was the same as before, except that the little childhood friend who was nothing but a vague memory in his previous life was exceptionally different this time.

Like the spring breeze that thawed the frozen soil, someone reached into the abyss and grabbed his blood-stained hand.

*

Song Yu tore apart a love confession letter like he was venting and fumed, “Don’t pay attention to those people, don’t believe in their sweet words. They’re all scum, and their love is worthless. Don’t like them, okay?”

Xie Sui gazed at him for a long time, then laughed, “Alright, I don’t like them.”

I only like you.

It's good!! I think it's a refreshing take on systems and the 'rule' of the world, the over-arching plot is very nice. I was very interested in how it'll play out and I'm not disappointed! The CP is sweet, I find their dynamic lovely. It's very smooth, but I do find myself looking back and going 'wait, that's very sus tbh' because the dynamic hoodwinked me into believing/seeing it from an omnipresent view, so some of the 'reveal' (like the rebirth thing) felt a little?? That was way too easy,... more>> but only because I'm prepped and primed for it. Still, it's quite good!

I find the side characters absolutely boring. The school friends and forum was exciting at first, but it got old really fast. I didn't even want to read about what games they play or what they talk about because there's not much substance-- it's just the MC showing off and everyone ooh-ing and laughing and hyping/egging him on. The pacing also f*cks me up, I thought we were like -- mid-term or close to the end of term then the dialogue/scene went 'oh how's your first week of school' // me: ?????

It's alright. I read it for the system's plotline and that was fun. The face slaps arent particularly harsh/loud, but hey at least there's still face slaps !! <<less

MC is actually

The way the plot connects itself at the end and the explanation about what really happened is amazing.

I just MTL'ed the novel and I'm sure that once every chapter has been translated, it'll be even better. I didn't feel that the chapters were long or draggy.

The system.... well, you'll see. The intertwined fate between the ML, MC, and System is nice to read.

... more>> I kinda wanted to give the system a hug at the end.

This novel is a HE

I love the pace of the story, the characters, the romance, the comedy, everything.

Spoiler about the MC

Spoiler

The MC is the real Song Yu. He was just sent into his "real world" because of the system and the Main God.

1-6 years old - Real Song Yu

6-15 years old - Occupied by the system Song Yu in the story

15 years old - Real Song Yu is back once he "transmigrates into the book"

[collapse]

Mini Spoiler about the characters:

Spoiler

The ML has his memories from the past.

The MC knows the plot of the book.

Other characters will remember their past due to the system interfering and giving their "memories back"

Just read the novel. *smiles*

When I read the synopsis I already thought: "this novel is certainly good". Just based on the synopsis, I could see how deep Xie Sui's affection for Song Yu was... I could see how deep he was.

A 1 in 1 million novel.

Of course, my thinking was not wrong, but it was also not right.

The general idea of ​​this novel is AWESOME, honestly, each character very well done if you think, mainly, Xie Sui. The surrounding plot is also very good, although the beginning appears to be a classic, the Plot Twist at the end contained all the creativity.

But unfortunately, I have to criticize writing a little.

Author, did you happen to publish the draft?

Honestly, in my opinion the lack of depth in Xie Sui was lacking, everything about his emotions was described in a very basic way, and the rest the author said: "instinct".

Xie Sui is much more than "instinct"!

And your thoughts and emotions too.

Song Yu at first said that he doesn't understand Xie Sui's character, and I think the owner of those words is the author.

This disappointed me a lot when I read it, I really expected a deep and moving writing, not causal and superficial as it was.

The author simply showed the "tip of the Iceberg" when he described Xie Sui, and even villains fall into that category.

And the rest of the "Iceberg" was very well hidden in the sea of ​​letters of the work.

Other than that, I must criticize something else.

Author, why did you rush the ending so much?

I must say, the beginning was very rolled, part of the chapters were wasted with unnecessary comments from the forum, not that I hate it, but a lot of that was useless.

And when I remember that, I remember that the author made a little mistake in describing how Xie Sui falls in love. Not that it was the wrong time, but it was so superficial that I was totally disappointed!

And I don't understand, love at first sight? Seriously author? Are you going to leave me with so little of how he felt? Xie Sui deserves more attention!

Returning to the subject, yes, the beginning was so slow that in many parts I almost slept! And in the end it was so busy that I almost didn't understand!

Until the last 3 chapters they were dealing with the villain, and then, the author completely abandoned the other villains with random problems that came from the beyond!

And you tell me it makes sense? Who said that? Come here so I can beat you up!

Then because it was almost the end, he wrote everything so basically with "poetic" and "moving" endings, that he forgot many details that could be described.

There were many scenes that I expected to see and there were many subjects that were thrown into the air and are now covered in fog so that I can never know.

I finished the story and was like, "Oh? Was that it?"

Seriously?

Spoiler
[collapse]

Qin Mo will not retaliate?

Wasn't Song Xu coming back? Where's a glimpse of him?

The Xie family too, how did it end? In a mess? What kind of "mess"?

How did they finish high school like that?

And the Song family? Do they know or not about their relationship?

Spoiler
[collapse]

Should I guess everything?

And another, I hoped there would be secondary couples, but in the end the author left completely in the dark how Song Yu's friends ended up.

Author, did you forget to release some extras?

Anyway, that's what I think.

Just a few chapters out and you can already see so many 5 star reviews with completed status on them. The reason is simple, this novel was REALLY SO GOOD that people did what I did i.e they MTLed it in one go. Mind you, I never MTL novels as the MTLs don't make sense so its no fun at all and also because no novel has hooked me enough to read its MTL till the end. My plan for this was the same as for my previous ones:Just skim... more>> over some chapters but I ended up reading it all because I couldn't stop myself!
First of all, I really love transmigration into a novel concept and this was one of the best ones!And whats more it was in modern school setting!

I adore the MC so much!!!!He's not your typical cutie pie dumbo or your scheming intelligent guy. He's just a norm dude who is 'cute, kind and smart' and SAVAGE. YES, SAVAGE!The thing I loved about him was him roasting people at the speed of light and his narcissism. Your husband Brother Yu! In the school forum and The School Bully at School. He has a backbone and kick a**es!In some of novels, MCs come to save the protagonist of the novel they are transmigrated into but end up doing little. But MC in the whole novel, really helped the ML a lot and the ML also helped in retrospect. Normally, In BLs its all about MLs doting on their shous. So doesn't it move your heart so much when you read the story from the perspective of a shou who does anything as long as its for the ML? Exactly! Thats love! Both parties should work hard for each other!

You gotta praise the ML for being REALLY PATIENT AND RESPECTFUL to the MC too. It was such a breath of fresh air. Even tho he was the cold type (like most BLs) but he didn't fall in love with MC just because he found him interesting or anything rather you can feel the depth of his love and feelings just from his actions and indulgence towards the MC as you read the novel. Even though his character isn't really developed much which is a pity but you can figure out he's not superficial or anything. He loves the MC with his everything!The dynamic between them was so good and cute. It was a school lovestory which felt like slice of life romcom.

The novel as a whole was funny af, had a natural flow and urged you to read more and made you wonder what'll happen next. The side characters had personality of their own and weren't just there for the main couple. Gotta love the MC's family tho.I freakin loved their interactions so much. Its so rare to see this in chinese novels!

The one thing that always bug me about transmigrations is about the person into whom the MCs transmigrate into. It makes me uncomfortable that the body is not the MC's and I always pity the original person. But for this

Spoiler

I was so shocked to discover that MC was the real Song Yu. The author really pulled it well and made me love the story more!

[collapse]

The plot was explained very well with a new concept and plot twists and everything was answered at the end.I loved the way how everything connected from the start to end and seemed to click at once. The explanation of what really happened was really good.

Spoiler

I thought the reason of the MC helping ML so much, his dreams and his fitting in Song Yu's family so well were just minor points but they were all connected leading to the bigger truth!The real story behind the novel "Gentle control" and the identities and purpose of 008 and lord god were so well written

[collapse]

Gotta praise the author for pulling this out so well.I highly recommend it to everyone who also loves "Transmigration into novel" novels like me! This is gonna be one of my favourites from now on.10/10 I would read it again when the translation is finished! Don't even think about sleeping on this guys! Just read it! <<less

I Like (not to mistake it for love !) almost every character in this book. I'll come to read this after the translators put out more chapters ! Thank you translator for picking this gem ! One should read it as it's refreshing most of it is comedy and youthful romance of course the plot development is definitely here and there scattered in peaces leaving you to read on to find out.

But you see both are 15 an age were you should be experiencing teenagers fun ! Youth !... more>> Spring breeze (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ! Drama free (not too much! (Like barely!)) ! Fighting ? And your Cute, kind and smart deskmate !

One thing I'll say is how MC always lighten the atmosphere but that doesn't make him OP or even if the ML is cold he ain't flat !

As I was saying, I love the family interaction of MC so much. It didn't go like other book I've read were, I do get they are strangers and all and that's perfectly fine not to, but I couldn't help thinking different soul same body. And by the end of the book some how they are interacting like a family. (๑•ૅㅁ•๑) It made me feel sad but with this one I feel so good seeing MC being so friendly and siblings to his family members and grandparents and relatives. It filled a void and made the story feel completed. <<less

This novel is super cute, fluffy and funny ? MC is a troll on the forum and a wild child in school. But he's super sweet to ML.

The relationship between ML and MC is also super adorable and sweet. Their first kiss melted my heart.

The plot is also interesting and took a turn I didn't expect. There's a bit of angst towards the end but it wasn't that sad imo.

There's also just a lot of really funny moments like the restaurant reviews, the friend that gives awful directions, and the... more>> fight scene with the school bully/tyrant.

Definitely would recommend reading this. It's so good! <<less

So... I've been on board for this since the first few chapters. I love the concept, it's an outright f*** you to all the BL novels out there that substitute r*** and torture for romance. A sweet wholesome couple to directly oppose the trend of yandere MLs violating the person they apparently love.

Unfortunately, I can't continue reading because of how prevalent the presence of fujos in this novel are. Actual self-insert characters who ship their classmates and imagine them in intimate situations.

... more>>
Spoiler

A classmate starts writing a fanfiction about the main couple, and in a game of truth and dare, the two of them are dared to re-enact a scene where they almost kiss. In front of the entire class. Wtf? Their first almost-kiss was going to be in this setting?

[collapse]

Spoiler

A group of girls start an entire thread dedicated to the 'couple'? before they've even become a couple?

[collapse]

These fujos are literally pushing their fantasies onto their classmates
Spoiler

and making them act it out as a spectacle

[collapse]
. The author uses the fujos as a device to fast-forward romance between the couple by putting them in these situations, as opposed to organically developing their relationship. It's almost like the author is saying it's okay for fujos to do the same in real life. It's not. It's gross.

A real shame, because everything else about this story and translation is at least decent. <<less

Oh GOD, totally my cup of tea.

PLOT BUILDING AWESOME. I even read spoiler tags, and it was perfectly ended. All reasons are logical. There was basically nothing out of the places. Perfection!

Also so heart warming.

... more>> It shattered the stereotype of MC getting transmigrated into the novel and became couple with the gong of the novel. MC fell in love with the protagonist shou. It was the main point that makes the novel shining from the other BL novels.

Already put it into my list of ongoing novels.

Don’t mention translation. They are professionals. Thank you very much for picking up this novel and translating it in constant pace. <<less

I mtl-ed this story. I personally dislike mtl-ing, but due to the urge to know what happens next in the story I had to sit and read through it. This story is something I consider stands up to hype it has been getting. Due to various reasons it reminded me of "The villains all fall in love with me after rebirth" even though they aren't that similar.

I like Song Yu (MC) a lot. He is wild, unruly, headstrong and fearless yet he isn't OP as he has phobia of dogs... more>> and height making him relatable. He can win against anyone through his fists and through his words. He always keeps his word and helps his friends in need.

Xie Sui (ml) is likeable as well. He treats MC very well. He destroys their enemies secretly without involving MC.

Reading the novel, I got envious of the relationship between MC and ML as they have mutual respect for each other and love each other a lot.
Spoiler

Even after they were reborn and didn't remember each other, they fell in love again

[collapse]

This is a complete spoiler to the story. The story itself is entertaining so I personally recommend reading through it rather than reading the spoiler. The story is fluffy and drama free. It made me smile unconsciously. The story also has a good plot twist. I am looking forward to re-reading it again after it gets fully translated.
Spoiler

Characters with contribution to plot are :
MC : Song Yu/ sy, ML : Xie Sui/Xs/ the original protagonist of "Gentle Control", Zhao Ziyu : gong 3/ original ML of "gentle control", Qin Mo : gong1 (helps MC realise his feeling for ml) , 008 : system and lord god

Plot :
MC transmigrated into the book "gentle control" and is given a mission to complete the role of cannon folder sy by a system. He defies the system which bought him to another world without permission and sets out to make Ml's life easier (cause he felt Sympathetic towards ML for what he had to face such a tragic plot line) . He helps the ML (who is reborn and has already experienced the "plot") Ans spend a lot of time with him. This leads to ML falling in love with him.

During this time, MC starts to have dreams revolving around the ML (that they were in a relationship and dreams from their childhood) and he realises he is the actual Sy from the book and due to reasons was transmigrated to another world but when his substitute ('sy' who MC thinks in from the book initially) dies was bought back (MC and ML are childhood sweethearts) . ML realises he has forgotten most of details of MC from before his rebirth. As the plot progresses system fools MC and tries to stop MC from loving ML and says gong3 is ml's soul mate while ML slowly recovers his memory. MC Gets frustrated and jealous But decides to believe in reality and becomes a couple with ml.

MC and ML come out to each other about the rebirth and dreams. From these confession It is revealed that MC and ML where together in the past life and MC had promised ML that MC would be there with ML to face his high school trauma if he ever had a chance which he unconsciously does fulfill. Even when ML had his memory of MC erased he still fell in love with him again.

Gong3 is MC 's childhood friend. MC also realises that gong3 has a system and he also has past life memories. Gong3 actually loves MC but got manipulated by the plot and system to get crazy abt ML even when he didn't want to.

lord god (y the hell is he a gambling rubic cube ????) becomes really upset with MC and tries to trap him out of the world. Lord god wanted the worlds energy which can only be gained by love/hate value of the ML (original MC of the "gentle control") . The book was fake and was only used to control the characters such that the ML would have maximum hate for gong1 and gong2 but maximum love for gong3. But because of MC (who lord god couldn't control) , the plot turns haywire and he could only get a bit of hate energy from ML (which was cause MC gets killed). So he decided to erase all the characters memory and giving them opportunity to rebirth while sending the MC to another world.

Gong3 realises this and comes to save MC and destroys lord god. Thus without the system and lord god MC and ML have a Happy ending.

Light heart story where both MC and ML are very sweet together, funny group of friends, with surprisingly satisfying ending. I didn't expect
Spoiler

the MC would actually terminate the god. Wow

[collapse]

Plus The story also has it own dept, despite being such light hearted. I love it. However, it's a pity that it's bit too short (105 chapters well not really short), and the story end at such young age. I kind of want to see all of them grow up together though, both MC ML and their friends.

Best school life danmei for me!!! ? I always get annoyed and bored with danmei tagged with school life But this one is so good!!!! I keep laughing every chapter and the MC is not annoying to me.

The author captured the readers by writing the tragic events of ML as well as his thoughts so u won't feel annoyed even when he teases the MC.

The MC is strong, physically and financially but is sick and a little naive. He is not like a white lotus nor like an annoying shou like other novels in their teens portraying school life.

Though there are cliché parts, they are okay. There's also a story twist. note for myself

Spoiler

frm c75 I skim it through for 5ch. And ended at c88

Since the tag is already said it's a high school love story, so don't expect some classic adult conspiracy and trickery, or mature romance here.

Looking from the plot:

It's refreshing.

... more>> t's been so long I have read a web novel, especially one with the modern high school romance premise. I have forgotten the feeling of being a high-schooler, only worrying about grades, the jokes between friends, the relationship between one student and another, etc.

Some high school romance I encountered before surprisingly had malicious, and disgusting plot of adult life. It's dull, and unable to pull me to appreciate the youth energy and the teenager life.

This novel, and one other novel that is Fake Slacker, really can present the readers especially old readers to reminisce about their high-school time once again.

The characters:

Are interesting.

The characteristic of the ML and MC are not the typical Gong and Shou in BL novel. When typical Gong would be the strong, described with extreme good looks, and super masculine body, and the Shou would be feminine or cute.

The MC (shou) 's personality is interesting. To be honest, his personality really is like a typical and traditional straight and normal guy in real life. The kind of guy who would be "brothers first before girlfriend". The kind of guy who would rather go to the internet cafe, play games, going out with the group of friends, rather than indulging in romances or conspiracies.

The ML and MC here are just described as merely high-schooler. Their looks didn't really get exaggerated by describing one by one and repeatedly like some other novel, that it makes the readers fed up. I appreciate the BL novel where the Shou didn't really got to be beautified, or desribed to be so girly.

They were just a good looking Asian Male, with the average proportion of Asian teenager.

Conflicts and Ending:

The conflicts are not that complicated, but it's also interesting. To be honest, their conflict are things we can imagine truly did happen in real life.

While the ending..., well, because this fics is also kind of slice of life, then there's not much of a peak conflict, therefore the Ending is also not that mindblowing.

All in all, it's worth reading in Weekend, to spend the time. <<less

At first glance, this appears to be your traditional transmigration/rebirth into a dogblood novel with lots of anticipated retribution. And at first, that is the case.

However, about halfway through the novel it becomes clear that MC's memory is unreliable, and the plot changes.

... more>>
Spoiler

MC turns out to be the original character and was sent to a different dimension after he inadvertently changed the plot in his previous life by becoming lovers with ML and thereby incurring the wrath of the main god.

The reason why they both rebirthed back to age 15 is because MC had wished that he could meet ML at that age so he could protect ML from having to suffer from a lifetime of hardships.

[collapse]

Both MC and ML are strong characters. MC is headstrong, unruly, and fearless. He is adept at both verbal and physical beat downs, but tends to use his fists to solve his problems. On the other hand, ML is more inconspicuous, preferring to work in the background in order to make the biggest waves. Nevertheless, he lets his little lover do whatever his heart desires. Together they make a great pair. The romance is slow to start due to their initial circumstances and ML's cautious personality.

I appreciate the way that they handled the subject of ML's mother's suicide. Too often, suicide is portrayed as being an easy escape/so selfish but there were real underlying problems that led up to it.
Spoiler

She really tried her best to be a good mother but ultimately failed. Her suicide was an aberrant attempt to provide a better life for ML in the hopes that either his father or mother's families might notice him after her death.

[collapse]

There wasn't so much fluff in this as this novel was more plot driven and I would have liked to see where they ended up in the extras. Nonetheless, a excellent read filled with great dialogue and a healthy dose of humor. <<less

This is literally one of the best school type novels I've ever read and the comedy is absolutely gold.

I was so sad when I finished because it was so good I MTL'ed it since I couldn't wait.

MC is literally one of my all time favourites ever and I'll never find one as heartwarming as this novel.

It's a well written romantic comedy that wraps up nicely. MC (Song Yu) and ML (Xie Sui) are relationship goals - not only do they have a similar sense of humour, they communicate and overcome adversary together. Also the dialogue and cast are amazing. The comedic timing and execution is done so well, the inside jokes will make you laugh, and most of the characters come to life. Highly recommend!

On the surface we get a sweet summer high school romance of mature 15 year old teenagers (they're both adults mentally... more>> so they handle stress well). There's nooooo unnecessary drama :)

MC = childhood sweetheart AKA Your Husband Brother Yu: Yuyu is my favourite protagonist!
Spoiler

He's also the original Song Yu. Due to being protected by Xie Sui's love, he can't be controlled or destroyed so 008 transmigrated his soul to another world and tampers his memory

[collapse]

The world is fleshed out by its supporting characters: I enjoy Song Yu's interactions with his friends and family - it's all natural beyond moving the plot along. I also look forward to Song Yu browsing the forums when he's bored and reading the posts alongside him. His friends and classmates also compliment his life and the story itself because they're interesting. Example: Classmate Jiang: at first you'd think she was a just a female passerby "flirting" with the ML when she asked a question about the domain.
Spoiler

But she's actually a fujoshi and the most supportive and biggest shipper of ML & MC and got all excited how ML was like "I only answer Lagrange questions" (inside joke with ML and MC). She wrote a FANFIC that in a game of truth or dare, her best friend got revenge on her by daring Xie Sui (ML) to re-enact a scene from that fanfic. Things got heated that's for sure hahahaha

[collapse]

The villains weren't annoying. They're lucky if MC deals with them, they're very unlucky if ruthless ML does. MC's revenge is TAME in comparison to what ML has in store.

ML: Xie Sui (MTL = Thank God) "Proud Son of Heaven", "Protagonist Shou in Gentle Control". (More likely to be Gong) He takes advantage of the situation to suit him
Spoiler

(1) tricks Song Yu to repeat the word "husband" a couple of times. (2) Acts innocent after beating up scum gong #1. (3) When there was a blackout and MC accidentally kisses him - he uses his tongue immediately LOL

To sum up, this love story will make you believe in love
Spoiler

because ML and MC never stopped loving each other despite losing their memories. You will also enjoy their journey of falling in love all over again, and piercing together the full story of their romance.

the MC started out with a normal IQ and then a few chapters in he suddenly became a "s*upid little cute" type who somehow turned into a naive and pampered learning slag that's only good with his fists (but has a kind heart) between one chapter and the next without warning. I was completely confused by the shift and never regained the same interest I had at the start of the story.

An absolutely fantastic read that was such a fun reading experience that I was shocked at how much I loved this story. If you've read Fake Slackers or Everyone thinks I like Him, this one has a similar feel. It's the same set up, the school's two most eye-catching boys and most of the story is watching the two get into shenanigans and fall in love. As for the MC, a kind-hearted boy who has such a sassy and feisty personality, he's quite charming to the point everyone in the... more>> school is a bit of a fan of him. Heck, even I'm a fan of him. ML on the other hand is quite nice, although he's quite stoic and cool, he's still quite complex and works very well with MC.

As always with every story, it was a huge pleasure to read but not perfect. It's 95% school life fluff comedy, quite literally the plot doesn't actually ramp up until the last five or 6 chapters and then ends So quick that I was a little surprised and was like "that was it?!". Personally, I think it could have done with maybe 3-4 more chapters honestly. Overall, it's a fantastic school life love comedy that I truly enjoyed and I really recommend you give it a shot if you like those kinds of stories. <<less

WHY ISNT THIS SEME PROTAG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cough, sorry I haven't read this yet because I'm waiting to binge. That's why I haven't voted. I just noticed that this summary would be a great seme protag novel yet it's not in the tag so I'm just crying a bit, lol.

Edit: Cute story!!! I love our arrogant young master. I'm kinda scared ML will turn yandere and r*pe-y, but so far it's pretty fluffy. Thanks to the translators for their work!

I must bow down to the author for writing such a plot intense shounen ai (I complain for the lack of lots of touchey feely) and astounding our minds.

Next is super duper spoiler, think twice before clicking on it!

A transmigration that changed into an actual rebirth and a system that is fake.

Here, both MC and ML are reborn, only the MC didn't know that this was the real world and he was actually living in a fake world his whole life!!!!

The love dynamics between MC and ML is... in one word ADORABLE! MC unknowingly pulls ML out of his inferiority, insecurity caused by the traumatic experiences he had in his

. So ML recovered slowly with our sunshine MC. Some people complained MC for being too OP, but I feel like if I was aware that I am a very rich person, wealthier than the wealthiest in a city, I would be throwing my weight around I pushed to a corner like that!! It wasn't boasting, it was like a form of self-defense. Also the fighting scenes were something I always looked forward to in this novel <3 It's hilarious! The other characters are also well-rounded, there's good amount of interaction between MC-ML with their fujoshi fans lol

The friend of MC is an amazing addition to the novel, his antiques never failing to crack me up. The parents of MC, specially the father (he is a pure tsun tsun which is very gapmoe <3) are very open minded, and accepted their son's sexuality without creating any drama. The older sister is a gem, and a great moral support for the MC's love life. The world owes me such a nice older sister!!!

Now that I have finished reading it, I already miss Xie Sui and Song Yu. The book was lovely, heart touching. <<less

Saying I liked this novel would be an understatement. I don't just like it, I really like it, like enough to read the whole thing via machine translations. WHICH I WOULD NEVER TYPICALLY DO. (I'm lowkey a grammar nazi, and if the story ain't flowing as smooth as butter, my patience will run out, and I'll be turned off from the whole reading process. So how did I end up mtl-ing this one you may ask? It was in fact due to me holding on tightly to translator san... more>> XIIN and following most of their works, which is how I ended up reading Transmigrating Into The Heartthrob's Cannon Fodder Childhood Friend. XIIN's translations were already to my taste, I liked their style of writing, and when they mentioned on another story's translator's notes that they were working on this one, I naturally jumped ship. I followed the translation process up to chapter 74, and then last night my brain said f*ck it. Ima finish this whole thing at once, and that's exactly what I did. The story has comedic undertones. Both of our leads are smart and resourceful. And their romance is so sweet and slow burn. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll enjoy it ten times more if you follow the proper translations, but if you're short tempered like me and decide to mtl the whole thing, you'll still enjoy it even with the clash of nonsensical wording during the progression of events. <<less
