As soon as she fell into the world of beastmen, a leopard forcibly took her back to his home. Indeed, Bai Jingjing is at a complete and utter loss. The males in this world are all handsome beyond compare, while the women are all so horrid that even the gods shudder at their sight. As a first-rate girl from the modern world (she’s even a quarter Russian) Bai Jingjing finds herself sitting at the centre of a harem filled with beautiful men — at the very peak of existence.

i’d like them to upload the whole series…….it is amazing!!
Just release the entire thing alreadyyy
Reminder that Parker also forced himself on Bai because he was jealous and wanted to show his dominance around Winston, and all Bai did in response was scold him the next day
It’s really frustrating because I like the concepts of this series, but the author seems all too comfortable with rapey behavior. And don’t get me wrong, I think it’s fine to portray a BAD character as a rapist, but these are supposed to be our heroes. You shouldn’t have your main characters be rapists and portray it in this way. If your story was about a bad main character then I get that, but the author just kind of makes it seem like it’s not a big deal, which is a huge problem because it comes off as glorifying and like it’s not a very horrible issue
I can’t speak for the novel because I haven’t read it (though I’ve heard things) but in the Manga Curtis is mostly respectful of Bai’s boundaries in the beginning. He is still feral, possessive and forceful, but they describe ferals as being that way (not that it’s okay). With Parker from the very beginning he threatened to claw Bai’s face if she removed the mud, isolated her, was controlling and constantly pressuring her. At one point he even said that she could reject him if she wanted, but she could only reject him after they mated, which is pretty fucked up because then she would have to not only have the trauma of being forced into sex, but Parker could have manipulated her into staying his partner or made her feel guilty if she removed the mark
Anyway, the difference here is that Parker is supposed to be civilized. His parents are the king and queen, and he acts more like a feral than Curtis does (again just pulling from the Manga). I’d be fine is he was just sort of immature in the beginning and the author made it clear that this was the case (and had him evolve over his relationship with Bai) then that’d be much better. Same with Curtis. The characters need to evolve and get better, to have consequences (real ones) and to have it shown that their behaviors are not okay and they NEED to be better. It made me so mad that Bai is written in a way where she just kind of doesn’t respond to her situation in a real way and that she’s just okay with so much of what happens to her. I know that some people are capable of enduring more trauma, and if it was written like she was repressing everything and slowly being worn down by it, that would explain her dismissive behavior a lot more
There is soooo much potential here, and I keep hoping that eventually the characters will have, oh I don’t know… character arcs? And with Winston I understand why it happened and I don’t blame him, I understand there was a lot of instincts and drug stuff going on, but I feel like Bai should have been much more terrified of him and needed time to process what happened before deciding. Even if she liked him already, and even if I want them to be together, even if she felt terrible about how guilty Winston felt and knew it wasn’t his fault, that wouldn’t erase the terror, physical or psychological pain. If someone you cared about was drugged and beat and raped you, even if you understood it wasn’t their fault, it still happened and it’s still fucked up. The author can write this bad shit happening, but they need to make it clear to the audience the psychological effects, trauma and suffering Bai is going through. It’s not something that should just be swept away just because he wasn’t 100% responsible for his actions
Hopefully next chapters have some stuff to better represent what should be happening :/
(also sorry for the huge ramble this was longer than I thought it would be, whoops)
Sorry to bust your bubble on Curtis but, remember why his spousal mark is on her leg?….It’s because its the furthest place from her heart. Which means he took her as his mate when she had no feelings for him. Curtis had her thinking she would die if she wasn’t doing as she was told. Winston’s spousal mark is on her upper arm, and in previous chapters Bai was having lewd thoughts of him and when he kissed her she wasn’t against having relations with him…its how it happened that was wrong. Horrible for the way it happened but her deeper feelings is helping her restrain the situation instead of having a full blown meltdown.
But for the most part their rapey way which Bai calls “pushy” male behavior has been waved off as raw male animal instincts which will always be more unexpectant than a females behavior. We have seen her overcome her trauma that she has endured which more than likely explains why she is able to handle this so well…so far….
…..I wish the chapters had better warnings is all.
Those are actually good points about Bai’s reaction to Winston, and to clarify I know she was having lewd thoughts and feelings about him, but I kind of figured too that being violated and abused by someone you trusted a lot kind of makes it worse? I dunno, I guess it came off differently to me, which is okay!
And the Curtis with the mark thing I actually hadn’t thought about, and I appreciate the input! Honestly I hadn’t really read into it that way, but it makes sense
I think the reason that I interpreted it the way I did was because unlike Parker, she did make the decision that she liked and wanted to be with Curtis. He respected her when she wanted space or didn’t want to be touched, and while he did force his spousal mark on her, when he found her again he kept his distance and took care of her from afar. She had started to develop feelings for him when his captive already, and she said that after he gave her to Muir that they could see each other again (I mean she could have been lying though, it’s hard to say). But at that point she was genuinely scared for his safety and that he was working himself to exhaustion to save her. When she wanted to remove the mark she was having doubts about actually wanting to do it, because he had kidnapped her and he was feral, but she still couldn’t shake that she cared about him. I just wish that she had been able to remove the mark if she wanted to, because it would have added more weight to her decision. Maybe she could have decided to give him a second chance on her own terms with her own rules, that would have been cool, I think
(also not saying that Curtis doesn’t have a LOT of problems and toxic behaviors, he absolutely does. I wish that it was addressed by Bai or anyone else and that he committed to being less toxic)
But yeah, contrast this with Parker, who pretty much said she owed him because he saved her, and like Curtis was also holding her against her will but in a much less obvious way. She only accepted him later out of guilt, even though she stated she saw him as more of a brother, she just sort of allowed him to be her partner because it was easier and she felt she had to accept it
I guess my biggest issue is that I feel she has been pressured into the relationships and that just kind of leaves me feeling bad? It feels like Winston has been the only healthy one for her most the time, and it would have been nice if she finally got to choose to accept him instead of it being again forced on her. Hell it’d be nice if she could feel comfortable sexually around any of them, because it seems like she’s always trying to get out of having sex and usually seems uncomfortable
Might not be reading into it the way it’s meant to be, but that’s kind of just how I saw it going in
She would have been able to but she had felings therefor the mark stayed because she wanted it to seem better for parker but her feelings for curtis were strong. but i understand yourr point of veiw on this one.
Don’t bother, most of the people don’t care about Bai’s suffering so long as the dude they have the hots for gets what he wants.
True but Bai also said that if he didn’t do it like that and he did it when she was ready it would be by the heart
(still not rape)
Still rape, you just think he’s hot.
People they are her husbands
Okay but she was still raped, rather violently, and was essentially okay with it. At least Curtis HAS grown a bit in that he cares more about Bai’s safety than his possessiveness. Winston joining them was his idea.
I’m not sure if you have ever been in a relationship that relates to the characters but in my experience, sometimes guys get carried away especially husbands when someone is interested in their woman. not to mention when there horny. As for the situation with Winston had she really not wanted it she would have pushed him off or her other lovers would have sensed she was in danger. I feel like people are just trying to push too far into it and not let the story be what it is. It’s a Manga that is written by someone who clearly puts a lot of thought and creativity into their work. She really has never been truly raped. if you go back to the beginning when Curtis put his mark on her he explains that his kind has a special way of placing their mark and it can never be removed. hens the bite to her chest. that’s why he was confused as to the abortion because he never mated with her. It’s a wonderful story if you read into it the way it should be.
Hey, as a rape victim? Shut the fuck up, you victim-blaming piece of shit. “This story that has very blatant rape is truly great and the writer is perfect, teehee.”
I dont know why so many people wants to ser rape everywhere… Boooring.
QingQing was 100% raped by Winston. He took her against her will. In the book, she ended up much more battered and bloody than she did in the manwha. Just because the artist decided to go in a direction that wouldn’t cause a ton of controversy or back-lash doesn’t mean that her experience can be diminished. Someone being “horny” or infatuated with someone else does NOT excuse rape. If the answer is not yes, then it’s no. Even if it’s only 5% no, it is STILL NO. Not having full consent is rape. Full stop. Period.
If you re read those chapters it was a “myth” not prooven.
OK first off, Winston was poisened and she had feelings for curtis he didn’t rape her because it had to envolve intercourse and all he did was bite her and wraped his tail around his ankle she was quite even though people were down the tree looking for her. Also parker was impatient but she was gonna let him do it anyway. Get over it it’s the story line just enjoy the story it’s a beautiful and cute story and also Bai let parker do it she said “Fine”.
around her ankle sorry I was thinking of curtis while writing this and got side traked he had his tail around her ankle
He raped her. A sexual assault is still a sexual assault regardless if there was penetration. We don’t know (I never read the book) if she’s pregnant with his baby or not since she had sex with the other guys as well.
What I dislike is she was a child (16) & a 40+ year old man raped her (she became immediately pregnant) then impregnated again & had babies which she had taken from her. Then she became pregnant a third time in less than a year of her arrival to the beast world & finally a fourth time. If she was 16 when she arrived & year passed then she’s only 17.
She never had the chance to be a normal teenage girl. Worst part is the author has zero regard for how a teen girl would feel being ripped from her friends & family then forced into relationships based on being raped. Curtis raped her & became “spouse” #1. Winston raped her to become spouse #3. Parker raped her out of jealously. All three relationships are unhealthy.
In my opinion the author is trying to show animal behavior as realistically as he/she can.
We need to understand that Curtis, Parker and Wilson are not humans but animals (even though they can take human forms)
Isn’t it why humans and animals are put into different categories?
Bai on the other is a human who somehow ended up in this different world.
But I agree with the fact that she should have shown some signs of trauma.
I think author is trying to make her a character that is quick to adapt to any situation. She understood how animals behave very quickly and hence she didn’t blame them for what they did.
And talking about animal behavior, I think the MLs in the comic are quite behaved in that manner.
Bai displays her trauma later on in the novel. The manga hasn’t even covered a fraction of the novels plot yet
Is there an English translation of the novel anywhere online? Can’t seem to find it.
I agree with you on many aspects of this. Winston is my favorite character but I can’t help but feel like I lost a bit of respect for him because of what he did. I know it wasn’t his fault but I would think he would continue to stay far away from her for a bit since he obviously shows a lot more respect to bai more then curtis and parker I would think that because he hurt her he would keep his distance as respectful as he is. At least till she heals from that trauma. As for bai i do feel like she should’ve reacted more negatively especially now that shes probably pregnant with his cub(s). I am a bit thrown off because back when they were still in the beast city winston did say that he didn’t want cubs and he just wanted to be with bai.
if it makes you feel any better had she not wanted to do the nasty she would have pushed him off or her other lovers would have censed the problem just like any other time she was in danger 😁
You do realize that when he took her he was in TIGER FORM. She’s a very small person. She could not have moved him if she wanted. Stop excusing rape.
I totally agree with everything you say here!
and I might just have to drop this amazing manga just cuz of how the author is doing to Bai-Qing and how she’s never rly showing any strong emotions or responses–as a damn Normal Person! \(T0T)/
No one cares
Good, but THATS A LOT OF TEXT MY DUDE!!
Yeah I think that’s the main reason why I never like Parker. Totally not the type of guy that I would like not to mention manipulative and immature. So toxic.
Curtis & Winston also raped her. She was a child (16) & Curtis was in his 40s. I dislike the fact she was (is since she’s 17 now) a child & forced to have multiple children & pregnancies. Maybe it’s a cultural thing but bestiality, spousal rape, rape of a child, & abuse seems to be the norm in some of these fantasy novels.
I don’t know what teenage girl would be happy having to be pregnant all the time with multiple men’s babies.
Longest review and discussion on this site lol
Bai’s isekai-d to another world. All the common sense of our world doesn’t exist in their world. Don’t over analyze it will only create headache. Yes, all characters has fatal flaws, including Bai. Honestly, I don’t like her (the incident with Bluepool seals Bai as my least fave chara), but story wise and world-settings wise this is kinda interesting. I like that they have problems and they solve it without modern technology, through sometimes albeit inefficient.
About age, back to my earlier statement about different common sense. All animals have different lifespan, like dog is 16-25 years, maybe turtle and whale is 150 years. If we’re using our logic, cross-species intermarriage itself is not possible. So, don’t read too much about age and age differences. Just make sure young ones don’t read this kind of story. It will poison your mind. But if you are healthy adult with clear understanding between what is real and what is just a story in your head, then you will be fine.
Is it just me or did they completely nerf Winston’s tiger design in that one chapter and make Parker a dang cheetah instead of a leopard
Damn going on 9 days without an update
