Ling Meng is a high-ranked casual gamer playing “The Legend of the Galaxy”. Infamous for his poison tongue, he’s known in the forums as Lemon Dad and he carefully cultivates a following of black powder fans over time. The trajectory of his fate completely changes the day he plays a match against the popular god-tier live stream anchor, Mangosteen. A meme created out of his dying words makes him a countrywide laughingstock and he begins to stalk Mangosteen to determine his rival’s weaknesses…to beat him in a match for revenge!

They fight with each other, stream with each other, and even exchange a naked photo with each other.

This is the love story of a lemon and mangosteen.

Oh all the sugary sweet fluff! I am drowning in it!

This novel is just filled of cute characters and cute interactions! There is no drama, no conflict and no misunderstandings.

When you are feeling down, this is the perfect one to read.

... more>> It is also really funny and made me crack up multiple times. The "comments" from their viewers are just hilarious!

The relationship between the MC and ML is just too cute for words, and I love the way both their characters are written. No overbearing, rapey ML, no white lotus MC. Just two dorks who fall helplessly and pretty believably in love.

This is definitely a gem in the BL genre!

Also huge shout-out to the translator for an amazing job, the translation is really good and has kept the comedy of the story intact. ☺️ <<less

Very meng, funny and heartwarming short novel. If you like laughing, eating dog food, gaming (SC2), and streaming + emotes (like twitch) this is a story for you. Lemon Daddy x ManGod forever. Thank you author, translators and editors for this story.

SO. MUCH. FLUFF. I really needed this after binge reading The Antelope and The Night Wolf. MC is actually SO MENG. MENGMENG I WILL BE YOUR MOTHER POWDER. ML is also just so good. He’s absolutely perfect boyfriend material. It’s great because the romance is so laid back and sweet. No drama, no yandere ML, no dark pasts—although I do like them, this is like a breath of fresh air. It’s defintely good for when you’re feeling down.

Plot: basically just like their daily lives as streamers. Think Twitch streamers lol.... more>> MC’s live streams seem like something I’d watch haha. I love streamers or youtubers that do random stuff. It’s always funny and fresh.

My favourite part is the fans. They’re so cute and funny !

I will admit that the text is sometimes confusing. I don’t blame the translator though! They’re trying their best. It must be difficult with all the internet and gaming slang. I’m just grateful for the speedy and pretty good Translations. Grammar is fine and I can get the gist of what’s happening based on context and footnotes. Highly recommend! <<less

this is a newbie *soft voice* hi~ 😳

This is a very good novel. The writing is good, everything is good. The MC is funny, the ML acts like a real human being that is handsome and has potential but is only a college student.

Just let me say that this is really the first in my heart (I don't care how well written or good other novels are, nobody can steal away my lemon bby!!!!!! 🍋!!)

... more>> The chapters are sometimes bite-sized sometimes big-sized but my heart is not unsatisfied at all.

The MC is easy too tease. The ML is very diligent and serious. But the two fit each other very well. Their personalities didn't crash and there were no forced or awkward moments. They just... fit. 😍💞

The process of their falling in love was like how you eat food when your hungry. You don't question why you should eat, you just do bcause if you don't, you'll die (sriously, my heart will die if the ship didn't sail orz)

There wasn't much drama or angst, it was fluffy, lovely, and the problems were resolved like how they should be.

It doesn't propose much society problems but it does wander upon how students turn into workers and the uncertainty of the future.

(idk what the MC planned to be in the future originally when he still didn't know ML but then he decided he would be an anchor in a streaming service after he got dragged in by the porn anchor that is our lovely ML)


The MCs lives were three dimensional, and the other characters were three dimensional. I wouldn't be surprised if you told me Lemon Daddy (MC) and Mang God (ML) were real people. (I would just ask for pictures because damn)

All in all:

  • MC: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • ML: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Plot: ⭐⭐⭐ (there was no plot bcause the author was just buying soy sauce)
  • Drama: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (no drama with the romance but the side characters have them)
  • Side Cs: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (back spirit-geeee—)
Although we don't know what happen to the MC in the future or what happen to other side characters in the future (*cough* didi *cough*) but this was a really good novel. It's pure entertainment and it's just crazy how everyone is so peaceful and everything. In terms of fun it's a full ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ staaaarrrssss. <<less

A fantastic, lighthearted, BL entertainment read about gamer livestreamers! (Yes they are ALL named after various fruits and veges...) The balance between the gaming parts and the RL parts are fantastic. Absolutely hilarious MC is known for his arrogant/sarcastic one-liners that he sends off after every match with other players. One such match ends up with him exploding in popularity because it was streamed live by the ML, an official channel streamer.

Absolutely EVERYONE is precious in this story; you don't get... more>> any angst or negative drama, just tons of supportive fluff (including the coming-out to the family!).


I literally could not stop laughing when the MC started rapping about mining and his roommate crashed his stream with accompanying dance...


Highly recommend, great translation as well! (There's a lot of footnotes, but there's a lot of gaming/online jargon to parse, so kudos for that.) <<less

This story is super hilarious and cute. Prolly one of the best "game-themed" BL I've have read. The plot itself is nothing extravagant but no doubt every chapter makes me want to read more. Tbh, I think I was hypnotized by our MC's cuteness 😂

Really recommend this for people who wants a break from our usual heavy yaoi plot. Definitely worth the read!

I've just read the 4 chapter teaser, and I find it funny and interesting. From the cover image I thought it's about a cafe industry or something beverage related.. But no, it's actually about online gaming, lol. The MC is a gamer who managed to reach the bottom of the top ranked players but instead of his prowess with his gaming skills, he's famous because of his poisonous tongue. Players are actually happy to be defeated by him just to read his poisonous last words. Then ML, a god-tier player,... more>> came along and defeated our MC in the game. MC thought that since ML is such a famous player, he'd forget he ever existed and sent him a message that is so unlike MC's 'image'. READ IT to find out but I guess you can surmise what it is. Anyway, MC didn't know that ML was actually livestreaming their game and everyone saw MC's message. Long story short, the internet exploded and their lives become virtually connected, lol.

The story is a bit fast-paced for me but maybe because the chapters are just short? IdK, it just feels like a bit rushed. Like, why not give more examples of why his poisonous tongue is famous? Or at least give a scenario that will make me believe that this 'skill' of his is enough to garner that attention. All I got is a small sample and from that I have to trust that it's enough to make him famous and actually have many fans. Oh, well, maybe it's going to be expounded further, as well as who he is outside of the game. It's interesting though, and funny. Something to read and look forward to while waiting for other novels to get updated. I hope the translater continue this. I'll probably update this review after reading the next chapters, but so far, it's worth a try. <<less

Edit: I was so excited, forgot the stars:☆☆☆☆☆!!!

Awe, I am reluctant to part with such a wholesome, fluffy and light-hearted novel ah~ This author writes a dog blood-lacking novel very well! I really am happy to have found this, and to say that it was from the author who wrote The Antelope and the Nightwolf-- a novel full of angst and subplots (which I wasn't a fan of), this novel was free of it, and instead offers to sell meng, sell laughs and sell single dog abuse ((●≧艸≦) Our... more>> characters Mengmeng, the meng Lemon and Shan Zhu, the caring Mangosteen both play games very well, anchor streams very well, and give such sudden heart-warming thoughts towards each other very well~

I absolutely love the ML's character-- being slightly black-bellied yet able to describe and express that he has feelings and it is not limited to that slight in his character.

There were times where even though he knows he worked hard to pursue our MC, he can't help but admire him from a distance, as a passer-by who can't get past through people surrounding him. Aye, this is a bit heart-wrenching ah, but at these times I am truly happy that the author is able to give our ML depth~

Meanwhile, this is a favorite line from ML, non-verbatim:

You might not know whether it is love that blinded you, or whether he is the one shining so brightly.

Haha I cannot remember the words, but you get the gist.


Kudos to translator-san for sharing with us such a wonderful novel and for your hard work!! I'd like many more readers to feel happy like I did reading this~ <<less

To summarize everything I want to say,

Reading this is like receiving tons of meng.

NO drama. Just fluffiness overload. A light funny BL story. Definitely, this was enjoyable and satisfying.

It has a good Tls, being able to convey the essence of the story, the meng. ≖‿≖ For more, in-depth review, just read the others.

That's all.

I swear, you will want to adopt these two bunny muffins by the end of the novel (if not earlier). This novel is so sweet and refreshing!
Charm points:

  • ML is not an overbearing CEO, he's ambitious, determined, sneaky, but certainly not almighty.
  • MC is quite strong in what he does, and discovers a future for himself. He is inspired by ML, but he gets to the top with his power and charm, he isn't dragged up by ML (ML only helps him create a few opportunities)
  • The ML's crush is believable, he didn't just wake up one day and decide 'I'm gonna harass a white lotus from now on'.
  • Even when MC dances on ML's palm, it's all very in line with how university students would behave - no manipulation, no pressure, just dorks being dorks.

So good, so good, so good! Important things must be said three times, hehe~

On a more (?) serious note:
Very very very cute, whether it is Meng Meng himself or MangNing.
Very very very funny, with the situations Lemon Daddy would get into.
Very very very sweet, heartwarming, and light-hearted.

In any case, it's a really good read for anyone who just wants to relax and read a cute gaming novel. It made me really happy while I was reading it, and I bet it will do the same for you!... more>> (⸝⸝ᵕᴗᵕ⸝⸝) The fluff and sugar will give you diabetes, seriously. <<less

Honestly, I was a little skeptical about this at first, but OH MY GOSH!!! This is just sooo cute! It's like food for the soul after reading so many of those depressing, long a**, slow moving romances. It's a really great read that makes you laugh and smile until your stomach hurts. The translation is awesome and, wahhhhh it's just sooo good!

(Easily 4.5 stars, if it allowed half-stars.)

This is an entertaining, witty and easy-to-read story. It features a delightfully lively, quirky, cute, skilled (but a little naive) MC and a fairly "perfect", but personable and pleasant, ML. There's no real drama in this, but it's enjoyable to see the way the relationship between the couple gradually builds up through their mainly-online interactions. Normally, I get a bit bored when stories feature reactions from internet fans (they're often just used as a mindless tool, mainly in entertainment industry stories, and... more>> drag the story out), but in this story the fans feel like the main supporting character and I got rather fond of them.

As well as the overall storyline, I enjoyed the light-hearted intelligence this author writes with, and the translation is good, too.

I just recently finished reading The Antelope and Night Wolf, by the same author, and enjoyed that this one was was a simpler, less-convoluted story (and that the ML is also much better in this one). You don't have to have read that one first, but there is one fleeting/unimportant cameo you won't get if you haven't.

This is a story to just sit back and enjoy, without having to deal with inane writing or plot, nor annoyances or drama and angst. Quite delightful. <<less

I may have had some reservations about Antelope and Wolf, but this one is absolutely perfect. The MC is literally adorable, and he's silly and naive without actually being dumb. ML is of course OP and handsome. I love the relationship development between the two, the MC is unaware and slightly dense, but is still able to figure out his feelings quite quickly and doesn't lead the ML on or cause any relationship drama. Love the lack of drama, love the fluffiness. Also really enjoy all the side characters. The... more>> netizens are actually hilarious, I definitely laughed audibly at many of the comments. Love that the parents are all so accommodating and understanding of their love, and that Guava is there to remind the ML that the MC is an absolute catch. Objection: why is there only one "sm*x" scene? It's also not even satisfying! There has to be more! Another objection: the series was too short. I need more of this fluff. <<less

More like 4.5 stars, but rounded up to 5!! So fluffy and cute! There wasn’t much drama and it was a heart warming nice book to read :D The characters were good, but nothing too rememberable. The story was cute, but it just didn’t have enough, BANG to make it a really good book that would stand out from the rest. But I enjoyed it. That’s the most important part.
