This novel is so smooth and cute. I love how they flirt with each other because it also makes me feel giddy and blush. However, game theme as it is, the whole event is so full of flatters to the MC that the game (which is 3/4 of the novel) becomes boring and I just simply skipped those because it is repetitive in action.

Overall, if you just finished a very heavy novel and needs light feeling ones. You choose this.

I just don't have the endurance to continue even amidst its... more>> cuteness. They're lovely tho. <<less

This story is good. No, it's really good. No, no it's really really amazingly good 🤣

Just that, your heart may not be able to handle this suave MC and adorkable little shou and it may explode and you may die.

And very importantly, this is a story translated by our family's amazing XIIN. Super quality and timely updates are guaranteed since this is her project, so what are you waiting for? 😍

I love this premise! Reading from the perspective of the gong, slowly falling in love with the cute shou, this really fits me. Also, gamesssss and OP main characters who are great at games... yessss. Tyler is far from ordinary, which makes this novel very different and refreshing compared to BL I commonly see (perspective of the shou, weak to strong, still weaker than gong most times, etc) I'm really anticipating new chapters ^^ thank you Snowy so so much for translating!

I MTLed this last year, and died at ... more>>

The proposal xD

. So beautiful. They're both really strong in their own way, a power couple~ Shou is so sweet and smart, such a breadwinner~ and our MC is super doting. I love love love this. Normally, I get tired of mtl'ing but this was the first time I finished a novel in mtl. I'll wait until the good translations are completed before revisiting (I really need to revisit to understand the fight scenes properly x'D) <<less

I don't write reviews very often but I simply couldn't help it this time.

This story is GOOD. Like REALLY, REALLY good!!

That said, it's not perfect- there are pacing and plot issues- but I can't remember the last time a story made me feel this giddy inside. It's SO rare to see a gong MC (one of my ALL TIME fave things) and this guy is... dear lord. His lines are just melt your panties hot. The way he goes after the little shou (Who is no weeping, weak bottom btw.... more>> He's pretty damn badass in his own right.) is simply flawless. Kabedon... hnnnn. Without a doubt Tyron is ridiculously sexy.

I'm an old mom who's been around the block a few times and I was squealing like a teenager.

So is the MC wildly OP? Like a little scarily OP? Yes. If you can't stand a MC who wins every battle like he's robbing toddlers then skip this, BUT, if you can get past that and make it to the romance.... it will be worth it. It's straightforward with very little "Omg does he liiiike mee?" silliness and confusion. It was refreshing to see how easily they managed to get together. I have no idea if there are any smutty scenes and for once I honestly don't care lololol Tyron's lines are more than enough for me :D

OPness (hehehehe sorry, I'm horrible) aside, the MC is actually pretty sweet and very gentle when dealing with the ML. He's a romantic soul. Definitely someone the ML (and we readers) will sigh over. He's very smart but not annoyingly so. I'm interested in seeing what drama the plot has in store for him. So far it's been pretty smooth sailing.

The ML is adorable and feisty. He's a fighter and no one better get in his way when he's got a battle to win. I really like how he reacted to the injustice others face. He's determined and selfless... and super, super cute!! In the boardroom, he can hold his own with the best of them but when he's in front of the MC he folds like paper

flowers. (Under a cut, because the MC actually folds bluebell flowers out of various things and teaches the ML how to do it after he asked for a flower... siiiigh.

There's a reason behind it related to his past as an assassin but it doesn't take away from the romantic aspect.)

His collection of the MC's fan swag is hilarious- especially when you find out why he has so much of it hahaha

Mind you, I'm only 45 chapters in but so far so amazing! If you've been hemming and hawing about reading this (I was tbh for a long while) give it a try. I bet you won't be sorry.

My only real issue is I keep reading "Tyron" as "Tyrion"!! Damn Game of Thrones! <<less

My friends, this is quality material.

However, to those who dislike op mcs, this isn't for you, because this MC is badass. The fight scenes in the novel are hot blooded and beautiful, and the MC is a rare gong MC, which means he flirts devastatingly well. Like damn, he's smooth with the little shou.

but still, my favourite is the action, as he crushes his opponents without mercy. It's a work of art, and I'd Recommend it to anyone who likes waiting for you online and love you 59 seconds, though... more>> this novel is heavier on the fighting rather than romance.

This is one of those novels about enjoying the ride, not nitpicking the plot holes, so please read with a grain of salt. (Granted, there isn't any holes so far though, I'll have to see)

edit: that's some intense smut <<less

This story is beyond just being a BL novel which happens to involve gaming, nor is it just a gaming novel with a romantic subplot - neither description really fits. But if you do like BL, gaming and getting fed a lot of dogfood this is definitely for you!

This couple I swear, definitely one of my favourite ships of all time. It's not your typically cold (but melts in front of shou) gong and smart (but loses IQ in front of gong) shou well it sort of is but... more>> ML is so flirty and smooth with his words that shou really had no other options but to fall (I was swooning/blushing/squealing okay?! getting second-hand embarrassment). Noticed a few gaps in logic, mainly around real world development, but easy to brush off since the main focus of the novel is on the MC's gaming experience and the couple development. <<less

A stallion novel written by shoujo author with the genre of danmei lmao

The MC is overwhelmingly OP that he beat people in seconds. No struggle no suspense.

ML is every shoujo protagonist ever, but is also a boss in real life. Confusing? To word it better, he's a lovestruck idiot.

... more>> I can't relate to both MC and ML since they don't struggle. MC's struggle happened in the past so he's already awesome now. ML is basically a genius with doting parents, endless resource and his struggles feels as conflicting as mosquito bites.

Despite my ruthless remarks, this novel is actually quite good in fluff. It's just that feel good BL so don't think too much about plot or character development (there are some, but miniscule)

It's like an overly sweet chocolate, but hey, it's still chocolate. <<less

Rather superficial, but is entertaining if you like stories where the protagonists stroll through life on easy mode.

Story follows Tyron Odin, a master assassin who has been in the service of a God of Slaughter for centuries before gaining his freedom. He wakes up in an interstellar world where his skills catapult him to prominence within the world of virtual e-sports.

The story isn't complicated. It's a constant string of action packed scenes where the MC is vastly overpowered compared to everyone else, followed by other feel-good moments. Imagining the... more>> action scenes can be pretty cool, but there's absolutely no tension whatsoever, since there's just no question that the MC would win. It's more a matter of how badass he'd look winning this time. Obstacles aren't really obstacles.

It's a bit amusing and disturbing to see the crazed fanbase he accumulates in the story mirrored in the chapter comments section. There's a lot of squee-ing involved.

The love interest is hyper competent in different ways than the MC, but always becomes a blushing violet and a complete derp in front of the MC. He's really cute though. The MC is incredibly suave, and his flirt game is great. There are darker edges to his interest due to his experiences/family life, which he refreshingly doesn't try to hide before truly committing to the relationship.

Again, there's no tension in this area either. This fic is essentially a feel-good popcorn flick. <<less

the first six chapters were interesting enough that I started to mtl it but I got a little tired around chapter 100. at chapter 110 I decided i'd wait for the translations. there are a lot of pvp descriptions. the MC doesn't play a game story line he just fights so there are a lot of tournament battles. I like the super OP gong main character but I don't understand ... more>>

why his new body IRL is just as bad*ss as he is in the game without any effort on his part to build up strength and flexibility. some of the moves he does should be damaging to his body unless he's at the proper fitness level. apparently his new body was born with an 8 pack and muscles... no work needed. I don't know why, but that bothers me. maybe because he has it too easy in the game and now it's just as easy in the real world


I'm also unclear on his motivation to keep playing games after he achieves his goal. he wants a peaceful life so he decides to become famous as a pvp gamer?? doesn't make sense to me. also I wasn't always clear when they were in the VR world as opposed to the real world. hopefully the translation will clear up some of my confusion. for now I'm giving it a 3. i'll revisit when there are more chapters to read. <<less

Such a tooth rotting fluffy romance interstellar battle game story.

MC is OP assassin flirt from ancient times with a mission. And he is a gong! With a possessive streak a mile wide. Locked on the shou from the very start. The shou is actually OP too but he's such a silly fanboy in front of the MC it's easy to forget he's a badass too, lol.

The story sets MC as the number 1 assassin in his original world and when he died, he made a deal with the God of... more>> Slaughter to obtain a new body for his wandering soul. So he set out to perform tasks given by the God. This time, MC was transmigrated into an interstellar world where he try to get to the top of the battle game in the VR world of the interstellar society.

What I like is that he's such an iceberg but in front of the shou he is such a major flirt. I just died with no regrets every time. Also, the battle scenes are amazing! Detailed and engaging. MC is so OP but his battle is still thrilling.

Most of the novel tell stories about his battle in game so far, so romance was like a side plot. Though, they are still so very sweet, I just. Can't.

I recommend reading this. <<less

So exciting. Such a great novel. Only at 32 chapters, and I caught up way to fast. The romance is developing. The MC is OP, BUT, considering his background its reasonable. In addition there's no annoying power drop/fighting new overpowered people tropes.

This is definitely an excellent story. Our MC is a master assassin who has transmigrated into an interstellar world and uses his assassin skills to dominate the virtual e-sports competition there. His shou is also pretty OP himself, but his cuteness pretty much overshadows it, but the OP is still there. The plot and characters are also written really well, so I would definitely recommend people to read this themselves. ♪ (๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑) ♪

Actual rating is 3.5

This is not a fantastical novel, nor is it your typical transmigration novel, it can also be barely called an e-sports novel.

I'm not sure if there's even a plotline actually. But it works. Because this novel is actually a lighthearted, feel-good read, packed full of fluff.

Our MC is essentially a milleniums old assasain who finds himself in an intersteller future, in the midest of a VR e-sports competition. He ends up becoming an e-sports competitor by situation, and meets the ML while figuring out how to navigate... more>> this world.

The novel does not go into a lot of world building, or spend much time dwelling on the MC figuring it out. Instead, it quickly jumps into the MC as an e-sports competitor... if you can call him a competitor. The MC a millenniums old, experienced assassin is too OP for other players (whom only ever ran around in stimulated reality) and easily beats them.

Following this pattern, we follow the MC's journey through the PvP e-sports competition, and watch as he romantically progress through a relationship.

And that last paragraph is essentially the entire novel. Plot progression, character building, world exploration, and actual exposition takes up little of the novel. Most of the novel is taken up by the PvP tournaments the MC participates in; which are actually quite fun to read if not repetitive.

Due to the novel being mostly about PvP's the MC dominates in, we dont see any setbacks or hurdles. The MC easily acclimates to the intersteller world without a problem. The MC also doesn't face problems romantically; the ML and MC fall into a consensual and happy relationship without trouble.

Once again, this is a solid feel-good novel. The only discernible plotline, is the MC moving up the ranks in the touraments. There isn't even a proper subplot.

I would not reccomend anyone picking this up for the world building, fantastical and/or e-sport elements the novel's summery sells. You'll be very disappointed else wise.

But if you're just looking for fluff between a cute ML and suave MC. This would be a good pick. <<less

The idea for this is nothing new. Not really. But it is pretty f*cking awesome.

If nothing else, you should read it because it has the best proposal I have ever read in a BL.

“I have lived my whole life without meeting an adversary I couldn’t beat, so I have been rebellious for a lifetime, and there were none in the four oceans who caught my eye. I used to think that all dead and living beings could be fought. If gods or buddhas blocked the way, I could also test... more>> my blade against them. Until there was a battle where I went all out... A formidable enemy stood in front of me, and I was defeated. I’m willing to be bound, led by the neck, and killed without the slightest bit of resistance. If I’m lucky enough to be spared, I will swear loyalty to him. From then on... regardless of whether it’s good or bad, rich or poor, healthy or ill, I will trust, love, treasure, and treat it as precious. It will last forever until death." <<less

I'd say this one is pretty good... Well I guess?

The way they fights kinda... just kinda.... getting repetitive and like... at most, there are currently only 3 to 4 skills which the MC is using and e.e okay.....

Oh I love the ML!!!! He is just so lovely aaaa!!!!
I also like MC hehe he is my type anyways... he is different when it is about his Baby and like I really love how he isn't the type of gong who is a manipulative type and not overbearing towards the shou.

Really... more>> incredible novel.

Deserves 5 star no doubt.


what is shocking about the novel is that the cold and arrogant assassin in front of others, decided that he will take the initiative of proposal!!!!!

omg just thing long about that moment I'm already screaming here omg.

Im just currently at chapter 103 right now so he he let's wait and see~


He really is OP but he doesn't abuse it like other MC. <<less

Reverse transmigration into a interstellar universe. MC is super OP and uses his real-life assassin skills in e-sports, and considering his 600+ years of experience, obviously steam-rolls the opponents... ML is so enamored with MC's beautiful (handsome?) face that he gets spell-bound and barely able to speak in his presence, but otherwise, he too, is super OP in his field... And MC is so smooth/suave that he makes the ML even more flustered... Basically a general feel-good story with no ups and downs...

Major pet-peeve is that MC is super-smooth and... more>> able to acclimatize in this new universe way too easily... Considering his previous life as an assassin and then 600 years more as an agent of 'God of Slaughter', one would assume, he would have some sort of PTSD... but the MC shows no such sign, he's able to settle in this new life very smoothly, the transition from an ancient era to a super-technical era is way too easy, and MC faces no setbacks... <<less
