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 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

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

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

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.
