Started good but now it's just shoujo crap. And worse, the ML is one of those weird chinese fantasies: bad boy, selfish, possessive and arrogant. Can't relate at all. Definitely became for-females-only story. I'm out. View More
It's Not Easy to Be a Man After Travelling to the Future

Mumeri: (Tl;dr at bottom)This novel at first glance is a light hearted and fun novel about a girl in the future trying to get out of hiding herself. However, as time passes more and more issues crop up to the degree of being ridiculous. The plot itself has even less development than the standard wuxia, making a grand total of 0 progress in all the chapters. Instead, the goal only gets move farther and farther away with artificial reasons despite already being attainable. Ling Lan finally graduates her cadet school... and then her dad ruins the plan. So, she’s stuck at First Mens because failing out or getting expelled would, what, be too convenient? Then, finally, after 500 some odd chapters she enters her dad’s devision and had another easy chance, and this time she herself decides to throw it away. Fast forward, and at the point the raws are at, over 1400 chapters, she’s still hiding. The gender bender aspect is ultimately nothing but an occasional gimmick with Luo Lang and her parents or some “inconvenience” she instant resolves. Its been dragged out to the point where it could easily be 2000 chapters before our idiot protagonist decides to finally do anything.

Fortunately, the side characters are all quite decent and behave like somewhat humans. Unfortunately, then there’s Ling Lan, a character supposed to be driven by a desire for freedom and happiness and just wants a family, and instead we have an absolute idiot of a protagonist with no real personality or goals(because clearly getting to stop hiding her gender is so low on the list it doesn’t even count). And instead of being a strong female protagonist and establishing herself and other women as equals in the story’s universe, she simply goes along with pretending to be a male and setting all her achievements in a way they could never even be linked to the true her. So, when she finally, if ever, did reveal herself, she will either just be a random nobody or will have to defeat the point of hiding in the first place and openly reveal herself.

So, the plot never progresses, and the main character is a dud, but at least it could in the future, right?

Sadly, the next big issue is the update frequency of the raw chapters, with little to no activity for months at a time.

And, unfortunately, even when updated the plot progresses so slowly, as anyone who’s read even several chapters would know, even if the updates come nothing will truly happen in the plot for weeks if not months of releases.

Consequently, the story, as is, at 900 something chapters, is well over $200 USD to unlock all of, with another 500 chapters to go before hitting the dead end of updates.

Ultimately(tl;dr) if you want an extremely slow and long story with a useless main character and glorified clowns as the rest, tottering around in a plot that’s somehow stagnated for 1400 chapters despite having countless chances to finally progress, with a spotty update schedule by the author(not the translators, they’re great), then this is the perfect story for you.

True. They'll eventually reap what they sow.
Why waste your money to be "privileged" just to see the hidden stocked chapters if you can read those "privilege" chapters for free in the websites i've mentioned? View More

Lillia24: As a free user, it's still gonna be hard to read more novels with just the free fast passes. They're pushing people to buy SS. And yes, the privilege isn't something that should be supported, but some people can't help it (ie me).

But the point I'm trying to say is, back then before privilege and the lost of free SS, it was easy to read several novels at the same time because there were many ways to earn SS. There was the daily log in, ads, daily tasks. Then they added the reading for so and so amount of min to earn SS. And novels could cost anything from 2-3 SS to a whopping 20 something stones, depending on how long the chapters are. Which to some people now, if the chapters were still that long then they are so worth it using the fast passes, but it's not the same with shorter chapters.

And then the next thing they did was take away the ad for free SS. Then they added in free passes. Then brought back the ads for a fast pass (I think). And then finally they took away the daily log in for free SS and turned it into 1 fast pass, took away the reading for so and so amount of min for free SS, turned all the tasks into useless EXP once you reach lvl 7 or the fast passes for rating and selecting novels (bringing you up to be able to only earn at most 3-4 fast passes. And also, for buying fast passes, you must read a large quantity of novels and spend a lot of time doing it or you won't be able to earn points to buy fast passes. And also, if once you earn enough points, but miss the sale, you're out of luck. There's a limited amount of fast passes available for purchase with points. And of course, you can't buy fast passes with money.

And that brings me to my conclusion that now as a free user, you can barely scrape through with just 1 or 2 novels by using the fast passes. So yes, the best deal would be to find another app or Website to read. That's why I'm saying that Webnovel is gonna lose a lot of readers with how they're setting up their system. Wow. Looks like I wrote a whole chapter here. Lol

You can read them for free at sites like novelfull and ********. View More

morifour: yeah..I don't even have a single spirit stone for so long already...and now I only read this story because all I got is the fast pass...which can barely satisfy my reading time...please bring back the last version....I'm so poor and I feel that I need to look for a more satisfying reading app...😭😭😭😭😭

Or just don't support the privelege feature then read the novels at aggregator sites like novelfull or ********. If you think webnovel business practice is too user unfriendly, there's always those options. View More

Lillia24: The thing is, back when I first started the app, my SS would last me 2 to 3 months if I bought 2500 stones. In addition to all the stones I was earning daily, i was able to read more chapters. But now with all the novels I'm reading, I can barely scrape by every month without having to double the SS bought back then because we can no longer earn SS. I like the idea of the fast passes, but with how hard it is to get more of them, people who can't pay for stones will most likely start dropping off of the app due to cost. Or they will have to limit their reading to one or two novels at a time.

The privelege feature is already convoluted. It's like paying a shop owner just to open his box of stocked products which you also have to pay to buy. Any kind of mass release can't make up for that View More

Chocobikies: Not a single thank you for the mass release that so many of you guys have been spamming for the last X numbers of chapter? Well fine. I’d like to say my part then. THANK YOU FOR THE MASS RELEASE! 🥰👍😘

Jhinz16: If he is the real ML.. He is not worthy...
How much can he think if he finds out that boss is a girl... Is he going to kill everyone to achieve his selfish ambition... Daddy Ling was right.. He is a very dangerous person.. 🤨🤨🤨

Give up. That's where it's going. View More

CCVD: Plz author-sama. Do not go the shojou manga -ish novel rute where Ling Lan falls for the overly "protective"/ posessive friend (Li Lanfeng) 😖 let them work it out but stay as friends. Let the male lead come later in the novel, when she has actually returned to her female identity.

(No hate for the possible BL in the novel, but never liked the overly possesivnes of such charecters as Li Lanfeng)

Sa mtl ko binasa yung next chapters dati at talaga namang sobra na ang forced romance! Hindi nalang makuntento sa pagiging loyal subordinate at talagang gusto pang angkinin at ikadena si boss lan. Pootah. Mas ayos pang ML yung nasa special forces, or just go Yuri all the way, anything except lanfeng! View More

Eianne: Hindi ka nag iisa. Sa next chapters mas Maiinis ka lalo sa kanya. Taas by self confidence.

And because of that the story veers off from ling lan and friends's comradery and brotherhood to some unneeded romance. From now on there would be less of the gang and more on just the two of them. Now it's a completely different story! Thanks forced romance! View More

Lord_0f_The_Grills: Leopard's possessiveness rivals no one in the story. He's even more possessive of boss than her parents specially daddy Ling and little four 😂😂

These two really can't forget their innocent and pure (really?😂) little brother. Hope they'll see each soon again 👍😁

It's totally just double microtransactions. Why don't they just release the translated chapters they have instead of locking them behind unneeded privelege paywall. It should now be called wEAbnovel View More

ThreeJaoXia: Seriously, if they can't operate on a Netflix style model of $10ish per month for unlimited usage they are doing something wrong. 😝
And this privilege BS seems like an attempt to grab money that would normally go to patreon.

Can't be sure about that. These chinese writers has a thing for making badass FL inferior to the ML eventually. Even this writer is giving signs that li lanfeng will be an overly possessive partner. So it's more likely that this writer will put boss lan to very disadvantagous and vulnerable situtation just to give the ML that one chance to save her. Because if they don't do this, thay unneeded ML will forever stay unneeded. That's how these chinese writers force romance in a story with a badass FL. View More

Preferably someone who is not a generic chinese ML: sephiroth look-a-like, mysterious background, with wicked personality, wants to monopolize the FL. I'm tired of those and li lanfeng embodies all of it. I'd rather go yuri route with boss lan x luo chao or some princess, or ling lan getting the ability to get pregant without the need of a man. It's more interesting than boss lan deteriorating to a blushing, weak, deredere FL. View More

Love_So_Life: Did I mention anything about romance?
All I said was "among all the characters, Lanfeng is the most suitable for Ling Lan"
It feels forced because at this point of the story.. there's practically no romantic scenes AT ALL!
And you're right, it doesn't really need it. Romance is just a secondary genre in this story and that's a fact. All we need is Boss Lan's domineering ways and we'll all be happy. It wasn't like other stories where the ML will sweep the FL off her feet and other cliche romantic scenes where the ML saves the day for the FL. It won't happen ever!

But what do you mean he doesn't deserve Boss Lan???
Who do you think deserves Ling Lan if not him?
(Please don't tell me no one deserves Ling Lan 😅😅😅)

Romance(?) feels too forced. And the story really doesn't need it. He doesn't deserve boss lan, and boss lan doesn't need him. View More

Love_So_Life: I really think Author-sama did a good job creating a character like Li Lanfeng.. 👍👍👍

Among all the characters, he is the one who is suitable to be with a powerful and domineering and black-bellied protagonist like Ling Lan the most..
He is the only one who can understand her more than these other boys does. And she made them have a chemistry together too..

Well, I thought before, Qi Long would be a good ML too. He's fiercely loyal to Ling Lan too and would do anything Ling Lan wants without question and it won't bother his conscience even a little bit.. And though he's our big sunny boi on the outside, he's naughty and a bit black-bellied too on the inside... BUT! I realized, a character like Qi Long would just do the job, but he won't realize Ling Lan's intention unless she explained it to him. He won't understand the complicated thinking of Ling Lan and instead just do the work then ask for explaination later.. That won't give them an equal footing if they'll have a relationship right?

Li Lanfeng though, even if it's said that he's kinda rotten to the core (but for me, I didn't really think so?). Has Yandere tendencies. And he's very obsessive with Ling Lan.

I LOVE IT!! HAHAHAHA

I mean, that's it!!!
That's exactly what a man who wants to stand beside a powerful character like Ling Lan needs to have!!

He has to be not just someone loyal to Ling Lan---- our Boss Lan can inspire a bug to be a loyal follower of her.. She have so many people loyal to her already!--- He have to be someone who'll walk heaven and earth for her!!!

And he have to be someone who'll fight to be beside Ling Lan, not just as a follower but to be on equal ground. As a partner.

He have to be black-bellied given how smart, and cunning and black-bellied Ling Lan is! He needs to understand Ling Lan and every decision she makes!!

AND HE HAS TO KNOW HOW TO COOK!!
That's very important 😂😂😂

(There's so many more but this post is too long already 😅😅)

I'm more looking forward to the foreshadowed Ling lan becoming a king. The story of how she climbs up the ranks and face difficulties with his friends and comrades sounds more interesting than some forced romance or his overexagerated body secret. I'm not saying i'm really against boss lan falling in love but atleast find someone more compatible and deserving not just some weak prettyboy. View More

Myfavouritebean: True. Ling Lan’s awesomeness would be the same without it. It’s just that I was anticipating them to have a moment together for a long time since it was foreshadowed. Plus the most exciting moments in this novel is when her secret is involved. If she gets closer to Li Lanfeng her secret is also closer to be exposed. And by her thoughts so far she’s nowhere close to live her life as a girl otherwise.To be honest I don’t like his personality since he’s two-faced. But Ling Lan is a sucker for beauty so 🤷‍♀️
