Transmigrator Meets Reincarnator


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

All Chu Lian had done was to read a book where the female lead had cheated on her wonderful husband. While wondering why, before she knew it, she was waking up in the body of that very same female lead!

Wait, did that mean the handsome husband from the book was hers now? Chu Lian decided to welcome him with open arms!

However, what she got wasn’t the kind husband she had been expecting. Instead, his personality seemed to have been completely flipped! He left her all alone on their wedding night… and just five days into their marriage, her dear husband abandoned his loving wife and left to enlist in the army!

Fine! Be that way! She could pass her days perfectly well somehow, even if she had to do it alone!

Chu Lian put her household in order, charmed the rest of her new family, and did a little business on the side. She even opened up some new trade routes! Her days passed peacefully and leisurely… Until her dear husband got into trouble at the frontline of the war.

Hmph, isn’t he crawling back to me for help in the end? Forget it, I’ll go save him myself!

The MC, an apparently transmigrated modern woman who’s ‘clever’ and ‘won’t let anyone bully her’, brushes off the fact she’s being DRUGGED with an aphrodisiac secretly, with every person she trusts most aware of it.

She accepts the fact her husband tried to strangle her to death on her wedding night and just does nothing about it, barely holding a grudge.

Her partner is cold and abusive and prone to forcing violence upon her if he doesn’t get what he wants, and she’s just okay with that. Cause she loves him.

I kept... more>> reading cause I was hoping things were getting better but I really cannot forgive the fact she was DRUGGED AND RAPED and just doesn’t care. <<less

This novel was ok. Since anything else I say here would be somewhat spoiler-ish, I'll throw the rest in a spoiler.

... more>>


Story happens in a fictional dynasty in a book that the main character was reading. Apparently, in this dynasty, food culture is rather poorly-developed. Lo and behold, the protagonist turns out to be a modern foodie who knows tons of recipes and cooking techniques. If it wasn't for the relationship drama, I would say that this novel's genre should have been 'Shoujo' rather than 'Josei'.


Not a lot of plot development, most of the story was about food, and using said food to make all kinds of political and business contacts. It did have a nice mystery theme with regards to Chu Lian's body's hidden identity, though.


Nice character personalities with decent character development. It nicely portrayed a vengeful and emotionally-injured male lead overcoming his suspicions of his wife in this life, due to "her" actions in his previous one. Then there's the gluttonous, kitten-like Chu Lian, who just wants to be a like a hibernating bear and alternate between eating and sleeping. She gets dragged into the political arena due to a stalkerish childhood sweetheart who won't let go and her excellent cooking skills.


Plenty of funny scenes in the novel, whether it be the ML's paranoid overthinking of Chu Lian's actions, the face-slapping of "secret recipe" owners, when their recipes don't match up, or just the sheer hilarity of all of the stoic, stern officials fighting over food.

I give this a 4. Overall beginning 340 chapters were pretty interesting. Overall since this is complete I'd say give it a shot and read until bored.

The plot feels both slow and rushed at the same time. You get like 670 slice of life chapters, first 300 of those are interesting because there's still stuff at stake, other are less interesting. And like 3o chapters where author jams like all the plot into.

I recommend it, though I'm not satisfied with some of the stuff. I like the translation.

Translator put a lot of effort in this one. There're pictures of good food and links to recipes etc.

I think overall, the story's pretty nice. I love the part where she's doing business and cooking all this great stuff. The ML becomes very infatuated with her. I feel that it's a little sudden though, the way he changed his mind.. Though he doesn't show it at first.

Really like the personality and character of the female lead. She is at turns, mature (in a light-hearted way) and cute. I like how... more>> even though she can be cunning when people tried to take advantage of her, she still retains an untainted outlook in life.

Towards the end, when the couple have reconciled their feelings for each other, the ML lead becomes quite demonstrative with his affections. I thought the plot kind of slow down from there (after they returned to the capital).

It's quite a light-hearted read. And kudos to the translator for finishing 709 chapters and updating regularly! I really appreciate it and admire her dedication in completely translating this story. <<less

The plot is good and the characters are funny. We have a headstrong FL and cold tsundere ML. The flow of the story, the way the things built up is just right until when I read the last chapter that is. The ending was too abrupt and I feel like all of the things I've been waiting for has been flushed out of the drain. All those anticipations and built up excitement wasted for a half-hearted ending : (.

But overall, the story is actually really good. It can get boring... more>> at times (but it all depends in your mood tbh). I Was supposed to rate it 4.5 but considering I liked it this much, I changed it to 5 XD. <<less

It's quite a cute story to read, but nerve wracking tbh! There is quite a lot useless drama between the main leads and the romantic development is (in my opinion) too fast and sudden. Like somehow there is NO basic understanding between the couple at all and just a tiny bit trust, almost none at all.

The ending is also rushed but cute nonetheless, an ending without any depth. It could've been much more, considering where the plot went but it just felt like the author didn't want to milk it... more>> more and just ended it.

Why I'm rating it so highly?

First of all, the food porn is just perfect and the translator makes it even better, like I mainly know most of the chinese dishes but get hungry reading about them and I love the food pictures!

Also a (in my opinion) superb translation job and I've been following the novel since the beginning and it was quite the ride, and I mainly enjoyed the plot line involving the female lead (and her development) and not necessarily the male lead, he was just.... yuck, okay he was betrayed in the past but like.... he wasn't that nice <<less

This had an entertaining start. Later on, when Tsundi started to accept his love for Chulian, it went downhill with the dubcon (to my tastes). The ending was rushed and there was a lot of cannon fodders with the same character template.

I love the food scenes

and wished that the latter half of the novel continued down that path instead of coming back to Xiao Bojian's revenge for his father

. Chulian is a great character and so are her female entourage (Xiyan, Sima Hui, Princess Duanjia, etc).

Well, this is a really good novel but here are some things I didn't like:

... more>>

MC changed so much in the novel, at first she had a consistent personality, then she became a Mary Sue, then she became a white rabbit "abused" by her husband until the end which was a really bad choice the author made in my opinion. The worst of everything was that the ending was so rushed that most canon fodder had a better conclusion than the actual villain. It doesn't even have an epilogue so it's a really anticlimactic ending to such a wonderful novel.

The start is good but I really don't like the Male lead attitude so I'm dropping. It was understable that male lead is a bit mean on the start of the story cause he has a reason. Besides the female lead find ways to counter it which was fun. Sadly as they finally clsoe together. Male lead started to turn into a pervert who have no consideration to the female lead.

Saitama reviews have better explanation for this problem...

I'll dropping this sadly

Usually, I'd read a couple comments and look over the ratio of good to bad reviews on a novel to determine whether or not I'd be interested in reading. This time, I'm glad I didn't read the reviews before jumping into the story.

Despite agreeing with some of the lower rating reviews, I wholeheartedly enjoyed reading TMR. Sure, it had its flaws - but which novel ever doesnt?

Some characters could have been handeled better so that they don't seem entirely one-dimensional. And this mostly applies to the villains, since I've noticed... more>> that they generally share very common traits, resulting in them turning out rather boring at times. But aside from that, I don't really have much complaints.

Some reviews stated that the FL was very Mary Sue, and after thinking about it, they're not wrong. But my defense is that it really couldn't be avoided. I mean, if you were armed with all this future knowledge (not just on the storyline) in a place where what once was considered normal has become ingenious in other people's eyes, it'd be hard to NOT be a Mary/Gary Sue. Now, if the FL didn't transmigrate or reborn, had no flaws, acquired skills in an unreasonable way (like suddenly becoming the greatest doctor alive after a small interest in medicine in a short time period), or the usual clichéd things, then that's a character to be concerned about. But with Chu Lian, although she seems Mary Sue, I believe it's rather justifiable.

There were some problems mentioned by some reviewers with the intimacy between the main characters as well. I agree it was a slow start, and I agree the romance can cause toothaches with how sweet they can be. But I disagree that there were no character development, and about the amount of s*xual activities. The s*xual activities and such, there were some use of the usual clichés, but I thought it was executed nicely - and it suits my tastes. But I'm a rather dirty minded person anyways. Each to his own.

Anyways, what I'm trying to get at here is that TMR is a great read. Although it uses the usual "useless to outstanding" FL cliché, it's done in a way that you don't feel uncomfortable with the FL because she's justifiable as a character and in the setting of the story. Not only the FL, the ML is rather likeable as well - at least to me. I enjoy their journey in the romance department, and the unexpected twist that I found unique to this story (or at least I've never seen it used in other novels yet).

I understand everyone has their own preferences, but I'd highly recommend this novel. <<less

I had to stop reading to write here

Absolutely do not attempt to read this novel if you are hungry, so far I have not seen much romance, the comedy is nice, but the food... The MC loves food and goes on and on in describing what she is making and the lovely translator even adds pictures of said food so I was killed over and over since I am on a diet...

Everyone is a foodie in that universe.

The novel name throw me off a bit, I thought it was... more>> purely comedy but it’s not, a bit political but not too complicated or serious.

I adore the ML but I also want to slap him once or twice for various reasons...

The novel is most likely going to be among my top transmigration novels. <<less

I gobbled this series up as much as I'd have liked to gobble up the food mentioned in it. Although a transmigration type of novel set in ancient china isn't exactly fresh material, the twist with the reincarnation husband is quite cute. The first couple hundred (200 translated/100 for original) chapters was mainly about the female lead settling in the new world with her culinary and business skills, romance will appear in the later chapters and the progress of the relationship is just right (IMO).

This definitely needs a foodie tag... more>> though; just make sure you don't read this on an empty stomach unless you can bear with it. The translation is superb, thumbs up 5/5.

As to the cons of this novel, the minor characters are often brought in and mentioned but feels substantially lacking in more depth, since they're the essential "tools" to bring out MCs and make them shine. (The contrast between good innocent cute female lead vs "ugly" jealous scheming side character is obvious but very generic if you know what I mean.) In general would also have loved more verbal interactions between male and female lead whereas physical interactions between them was definitely not *cough* lacking *cough*.

The ending was rather anti-climactic, one could almost call it boring. Things came to pass as expected, it was just... too stereotypical happily ever after. <<less

It is the first time I am writing a review but it is worth it.

I must say at first there were no romance only the MC being totally badass when dealing with unlikable characters, which is extremely satisfying.

The romance start only when the MC will try to rescue the dear ML who will turn out to be the one who will save the MC. Then the romance start as the ML will realise that the MC is not like the wicked witch who has betrayed him. The relationship between the ML and the MC will be boom. These two will be the perfect couple who trust each others and the lovelydovely relationship start!

Read at your own risk for the fluff and cutness which will happen and a possessive ML being crazy in love with our MC with a mixture of dirty talk from our ml's part.

One of my favourite I also hope that it becomes everyone's favourite.

PS:I am so sorry!!! I had wanted to put the spolier alerte but I don't know how to do it!

First 2 translated arcs were great and enjoyable. Translation team is fun and the reading community for this story is so engaged (me included) ! ✌ Story is warm and MC is relatable. However, all the sunny and quirky food adventures went down the drain once MC and her husband got together. The story took a somber tone in the guise of romance and scheming for the better half of the story. Watch out for the universal trope to unfold towards the end! 😉

I really do understand the opinions of some people who only made it as far as around chapter 200. This novels slow pace doesn't match everyone's tastes and there are lots of things in the beginning that stays unsolved for a long time.

Personally I really like the pace, as it means I can come back to this novel whenever it suits me without having to read a few chapters back... just to catch up. It calms me and doesn't stress me out😁

This novel has very long chapters and there is... more>> also that special food element that keeps coming back. Making you want more of that deliciousness. It's making my mouth water. Every. Single. Time. Such food p**n... admirable.

The MC and ML are isolated from the beginning of the story. as the ML (who has reincarnated) thinks the MC (who has transmigrated) is the same person as she was before... that is, a scheming and cheating vile woman.

But he doesn't realize that Chu Lian now is someone else. Which is why he still hates her and doesn't want to spend a second in her company. He's simply disgusted by her. And as I see it, he can't be blamed.

But when the iceberg actually melts (fall) for her he is a super tsundere. So much that you start thinking he's a bit pathetic😂 he can get a bit frustrating at times, but I love him anyways. He's often good towards our MC, so I forgive him.

Some characters are shallow and some are not. There are many scheming characters but they aren't that smart sadly. It is mostly close family that treats our MC badly. But as I haven't gotten that far yet into the story... I really look forward to how our MC will handle it. Hopefully she'll make them fall. Muahaha!

Chu Lian (MC) isn't really a weak person. She's quite lazy however. But when something needs to be done she does it very well. She doesn't need the ML to support her either and she can handle herself. Even so, she's of small build, has a lovable face and a good personality to match.

I recommend this novel for anyone with a lot of time on their hands, people who love chinese food (and love to get new & exiting recipies) and also those who like a good plot with many unexpected twists😉 <<less

I love the FL and ML interaction. At first chapter, they're not like any other couple in love, but rather like enemy. But around chapter 3**, their interaction began to change and its sooooo cute when the ML began to fall in love with FL and how he began to show his affection to FL. But its not going to his way as I would like to say, the FL a bit dense.

For a foodie, this novel is a must because the FL is a foodie person and you'll droll... more>> as you read this novel. The description and picture of the food by the translator really make me went to eat them😍 <<less

I totally love this MC. She is easy going, and not very black bellied, and like her performance in cooking. To my current reading chapters, ML's away and not very romantic in the start (due to his memory of past life), but I can expect more interesting events in the future. To say as final, this is nice novel to read and I can read from the start again since this is not boring at all...

I like the story itself, the title name says it all. The MC herself is a very relaxed person and her husband is a very high strung individual that sometimes she thinks he has lost his mind. XD

like all stories I do have likes and dislikes, I already describe what I like but the things I do not like is that MC easily gets kidnapped. Three times up to now I guess?

I wish it had more food discussions, but I understand that's more of a side-aspect to things. The plot progression is really interesting, and believable, and the most important thing is that it really takes a fresh spin on not only the traditional Josei Chinese Insufferably smug Female Lead, but also the idea of transmigration and reincarnation stories as a whole.

This is definitely one to read, especially if you've read other Josei chinese romance WN's, as it's sorta like History's Number One Founder but for romance novels as it's almost... more>> a parody of the genre but not quite. <<less
