One sentence summary: This is a story about a big (famous) person wanting to step into another circle to chase a small transparent (unknown) and realizing that person is a gigantic person (even bigger public figure).
Summary in a few sentences: Her first time explaining that she is a singer, he… did not understand. When she said her screen name (fish playing behind closed doors)*, he still did not understand. She continued to explain, this name is from “HunterXHunter” Phantom Troupe’s leader’s attack. He… did not want to keep listening.
She thought she was chasing a 3D hottie, but who knew this person was a legend in the gaming circle.
Teaser: Main girl is a high IQ + low EQ Mary Sue cover singer goddess (anime-loving cosplayer), main guy is a high EQ and IQ legend of the gamer world (too high so not much interest in females…)
*note about her screen name: “secret room/behind closed doors” sounds like “Miss” and “fish playing” sounds like “squid”

> This novel is super duper sweet
> And is a spinoff of the Zuo Shou series and has a few novels before it. — I have not read them but realized after reading this novel thought that maybe reading those would answer a few questions about side characters and back story — anyone read them/have thoughts on them? recommend?
> Mo Bao Fei Boa said that she was inspired to write this after rereading Really Really Miss You. I must say, same vibe and style! But, there is no competition that Toupai is, well, Toupai (number one). Personally, I think the title can also sound like name of a dish that Toupai made for Sheng Sheng~ and we all know how much Toupai loved cooking for Gu Sheng. (and he also had dried squid snacks at his home??) I really hope someone translates this one because I really want to read it in English…
Thanks for posting this! It is a very sweet story…. This story completes the others in the series. Gun really deserves his own story and someone who will stand by his side no matter what!
HIGHLY recommended to read the 2 novels before this, 神之左手 then 密室困游鱼; 密室 is a continuation from 神之. Then comes 蜜汁炖鱿鱼, novel about another couple briefly mentioned in the first 2 novels.
The background of the series is mainly about the world of professional gamers. 神之 and 密室 talks and focus a lot on the world of pro gamers, and it’s honestly not boring at all, on the contrary, it’s quite exciting. MBFB really never cease to surprise me with the setting she chooses for each and every of her novels. 神之 and 密室 is a refreshing read for me because I have never read novels that have pro gamers as the background. What I really like about MBFB is that she really does her research and not only writes about the romance part, but also focus a lot on the background she chooses to write about for her novel.
As for this novel, 蜜汁炖鱿鱼, there is not really that much description on the world of pro gamers because it has all been done in the first 2 novels. This novel is mainly about the romance between gun and Tong Nian. Quite a cute, fluffy and funny novel.
All 3 novels, highly recommended. 🙂
