Water Recovery System


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

Every novel has a slag character, the one who decides to abandon the protagonist at his lowest, most helpless point, either because he can’t stand the poor guy’s circumstances or for other reasons. But after the protagonist wins his way in life again, they’re the ones who beg with broken sobs to be taken back.

Still, water once spilled can’t be recovered again.

Yet the unlucky Shen Jiayan has been bound to a Water Recovery* System to do just that.

*water recovery – comes from an idiom that means “spilled water can’t be recovered” (English equivalent: there’s no use crying over spilt milk).

I was a bit apprehensive about reading this novel because when I read the summary, I felt like the white-washing process will be full of angst and dog-blood misunderstandings. But unexpectedly, although there are a few misunderstandings and a teeny-weeny bit of angst, all in all, it has more fluff so I am completely satisfied. I also like how there's interview sections with the original owners of the bodies, as well as clear transaction between the two. I appreciate how the system doesn't fight for screentime like in other QT... more>> novels, and how the MLs aren't completely unreasonable. All in all, I'm enjoying this novel so far and would like to look forward to more of it. Many thanks to the translators who picked up this project. I'm supporting too many novels now so I can't buy you coffees but i'll definitely get you one when I have the chance! Jiayou! Xoxo <<less

so this is one of the cute bl novel ever, the MC didnt easily fell in love and instead did his work properly. Every world is different, some are sweet and fluffy and some are hewrt wrenching. I was one of the reader who immediately read the translated chapters and the one who commented (where the chapter 1 since the cintent doesnt show, that happened yesterday lol) I wouldve vote for 5 stars but the only downfall is ... more>>

the ending is kind of abrupt and short, like it ended with 1 chapter only, its like an open ending but dont let that spoil your decision on reading because this one is definitely good


I am grateful to the translator too for posting the 1st arc in the 1 day of the start of translation. Thank you, and Ill still read the translated one since I only relied on mtl <<less

I hated it, I am I tears right now! The only time I am ok with my tears is when I am emotionally unstable (menstrual cycle) so how dare this author make me cry because of their book! If you are looking for smut, this is not for you (if you read on you will see why), if you at looking for another cliche with fluff than this is not for you. Even though short this book is definitely a re-read.

light and straightforward writing, as another reviewer put it. but also somehow this very simple novel is making me cry so wretchedly every other arc. the only way I can frame it is that the author doesnt mince words and is very good at pulling at your heartstrings directly. "water recovery system" what water recovery... the only water here is my tears...

overall, an enjoyable, if short, read that cuts to the point and also cuts your heart. ended up not finishing it because the annoyance of MTL was impeding my... more>> reading experience and ultimately deciding I needed to go study <<less

As stated from previous comment the ending is abrupt. It feels, 1 to 2 arcs are removed for the ending and a 1 page extra is instead replaced. Despite that, the first 3 arcs are really good 🙂 and I'm fan of world hopping novels since the arcs are usually 10 to 30 chapters only hence there is not much silliness and no prolonged dog blood drama.

I still recommended the first few arcs

I think this novel is pretty good, , I liked the stories for the arcs, but when it came to the ending.. Its very abrupt, , like the chapter before the end didnt even hint that it was going to end and the next moment the last chapter hits you with a bam, , the story doesnt flow at that part, like, , its really way too sudden and awkward tbh. I think its still pretty good though so do check it out!

I'm guessing that either the author quit part way or something else happened to make them cut short the novel because the ending is very abrupt. The arcs are varying lengths but lean towards being short so our understanding of the MC and ML is never more than superficial. There is some fluff and cute moments and some mild angst (after reading scum gong my definition of true angst might have leveled up because none of the stories in this novel even made me teary eyed.) I might revisit once... more>> the translation is much further along because there was some confusion thanks to MTL but for now it's a 3. <<less

It is a light version of system admin stories out there. Each arc is only about 10 to 12 chapters. Mtl is very easy to read. It is a nice read. I recommend this.

Hey, this actually isn't bad! A QT that doesn't make me want to claw my eyes out is a rare breed, so I felt that I ought to leave a review, even if I'm not super far into it.

So far, the premise is fairly unique for QTs, even as the writing is very... light and straightforward. Instead of the usual face-slapping, the MC is tasked with fulfilling the wishes of the original hosts, who tend not to be... great people. In fact, in other stories, they'd probably be the antagonists... more>> you're supposed to face-slap, but here they're the people that the MC is (ostensibly) supposed to help. Very interesting!

The MC also isn't smart, or an actor, or, uh, anything really. He tries only the barest minimum in the arcs to be like the original (and there doesn't seem to be any penalties for OOCing or anything, which is a nice change), and he kind of stumbles into task completion on accident, usually, just by being his usual sweet, hardworking self. The ML (s) are fairly good guys in general too, and they aren't overly possessive or overbearing, which is a plus. But for those looking for romance... while the MC is usually tasked with romantic missions, the MC himself basically sees the worlds as only tasks to complete, so while there's some sweet moments, the MC never seems to be entirely too down when the world ends. In other stories, this might read as cold-hearted, but with the MC's simple and naive personality, it feels right somehow, and I don't really have any complaints there.

Overall, while there's not anything super outstanding about this QT other than its premise, there's absolutely nothing bad about it either. The arcs might be short and the endings predictable, but that's kind of the charm of it. It's a simple, light read for those who like QTs, and sometimes that's enough.

This also seems like a sophomore effort for the author (it's her second published novel on Jinjiang), so I'd be curious about some of her later work, because from what I can see from skimming the fourth arc, her writing style isn't bad. It's not revolutionary, but it's simple and clear, without a lot of weird word choices and typos that plague a lot of other QTs. <<less
