Recommended Great Story with tragedy tag

spin out ins

Recently i stumble 2 interesting piece that was not necessary pleasant story
but even so it was a very very attractive and good read.
While one is a manga and the other is a chinese danmei novel i find this two story have some similarities
both of the story have a sad endings but the overall story are well written and leave a great impact on the reader
both also revolves around violence sex, and sex friend
both also tells the story through the prespective of the seme or the agressor, and its involve 3rd party that strain the relationship of the seme mc and uke ml
which causing constant obsession battle between main pairing, but in the end they take different course

If your heart can handle some angst and torment definitly should try reading this stories

Kunida Saeka – Spin Out

spin outNEOBK-1868461

Endlessly frustrated by his position as a babysitter for sweet but useless young master Ryouma,
Tatsumi vents his stress on Miki, a nail artist who enjoys rough sex.
Initially attracted by Miki’s resemblance to the young master, Tatsumi becomes confused when it’s Miki himself he can’t stop thinking about.

I must warned that this story have a very depressing ending altho drawn so beautifully, but probably it is meant to be that way, the MC are supposed to be unable to move on from his love to the ML carrying regret and the burden of love and longing that is too deep yet too late to realise

Friends With Benefits


We used to be friends. Although he’s flirtatious, he fúcked around, I just couldn’t let go of him.
And when we could no longer be friends, it was already too late. What was done could not be undone.

english translationread here: snowycodex.com/translations/novels/fwb/

I think this story ending is really interesting and different than mainstream story

an ending is not just about who end up with who, to determine a happy end or bad end.
I think an ending is where we get closure where we can understand, the course and choice that the protagonist decide.
unlike Spin Out that in my opinion gave a bitter unresolved after taste, Friends With Benefits i think get its closure

This story give unusual perspective that sometimes there is a bound that is far greater than romance that cant be broken despite the main character ends up together or not really. Hey i admit i’m the second character shipper in this one (hint)

Recommendation and Introduction of the genre: Heroic Death System & The Scum Villain Self Saving System,

I found some interesting genre in danmei novel which is pretty mainstream in chinese danmei novel world but kind of different in other form BL

One storyline that i find quite a lot in danmei chinese novel compared to regular bl manga or other platform was the reborn/rebirth genre where the main character will die and regain a new life and adventure. If you have read the manhwa “Geu Kkeute Issneun Geos” (What Lies in the End) or watch taiwan drama “HIStory 1 : Obsessed” it is either something like that or with a little twist

Let me start introducing this genre starting with some of the generic terms/tag introduced in this fandom

This tag is used if the protagonist inhabits an existing person’s body after migrating across worlds. It differs from reincarnation in that the person is not literally born again. (novelupdates)

one of my most favorite Novel of this genre was FENG YU JIU TIAN (Phoenix of the Nine Heavens), which i still think its super epic and exciting super recommended for people to read. I already have a dedicated blog review for this novel


This is an example of my favourite story when the rebirth character not just get reborn in the same existing world (past or future or different person) but he experience Interdimensional travel where his soul transmigrate into other lives in different dimension. The other dimension can be a fantastical ancient china, a futuristic scify world, post apocalyptic world, a novel plot , or an otome-ish game

Reading  some these novel i’m guessing that lot of fans are fond of the world of RPG games


english translation : https://cnoveluv.wordpress.com/projects/the-scum-villains-self-saving-system/


Can’t I read stallion novels anymore?! [TN: genre with OP protag & harem]
Shen Yuan is reborn into a young man and scum villain destined to die, Shen Qingqiu.
But it must be known that the original Shen Qingqiu was sliced alive by his disciple, Luo Binghe, into a human stick! A human stick!
Shen Qingqiu’s heart is a full herd of grass mud horses running full tilt, yet:
“It’s not like I don’t want to hug this main character’s thighs, but who let this fucking man be so black. The revenge that needs to be taken is some thousands of deeds!
Why is all the romance that should be going to the women in the plot imposed on him?
Why as a scum villain, should he still have to block gun and knife for the protagonist and sacrifice himself?

Shen Qingqiu: “…… _(:□)∠)_I think I can still save him one more time.”

He wants to prove – even scum villains can live, and live coolly at that!
It’s also the story of a small white flower who later became a black flower attacking a scholarly, scum villain type.
This is the story of a master and disciple’s everyday unknowing, very strange, dog-blood process of falling in love.
It’s also a scum villain’s firsthand account of the male protagonist turning from a small white sheep into an overbearing black king, sort of story……

if you are as confused as i was reading the summary this web gives better review >>http://bcnovels.com/the-scum-villains-self-saving-system-review/ and also translated 2 other novel with similar genre

why i say this story is similiar to RPG cause in this kind of story the MC usually is guided by a System which is sometime is like a voice inside their head who tells him what to do
and sometime they give them a mission that they must accomplish to gain higher level

System Administration:
Where the Main character gains access to an “admin” system that allows them to have more control/abilities than regular people and people that have the non-admin system.
Almost always together with the level system tag.
Level System:
This tag is used when the characters of the novel improve their abilities/skills/power by leveling up.

Beside that this novel is also falls into category of Xianxia or Wuxia which is a ancient chinese martial art stories. something like : “Return of the Condor Heroes” which i enjoy watching as a kid

Xianxia is a story with cultivation that can lead to a human becoming immortal through Taoist (in most cases) ways. If it doesn’t mention the dao, odds are that it isn’t a Xianxia.
Cultivation is form of meditation or training to achieve new ability
(note Indonesian: kalau di indonesia kaya bertapa/semedi)
This is a genre specific to Chinese novels. It literally means [Martial Hero], dealing with martial arts and chivalry. Main character can’t become an immortal, but rather stays human.

I think The Scum Villain Self Saving System is very very popular since they have so many pretty fanart, or was it the official art already very pretty.

The main character design:

The art:


This story is already very interesting with all these aspect the fandom discover another new sub genre which is multiple realms, where the MC travel form realms to realms usually to complete a mission

mutiple realms:
This tag is used if there exists different realms other than the one which protagonist rises from.

Now an example of these  kind of story that i currently found which was very good was



translation :http://snowycodex.com/translations/novels/hds/

“I curse you to never die in peace!”

Thus, Shang Ke started a never-ending (forced) cycle of constantly throwing away his miserable life.

He would always show himself as a martyr while letting others cry over his death.

It was because of a woman’s curse that Shang Ke was hit by a car and turned into a human vegetable. This led to him becoming bound by an unlucky system in which he was cursed to die. The most unfortunate part was that he never cheated on anyone’s feelings. The reason for why he was cursed by a woman was because of a guy named Qi Chen. Qi Chen was a ladies man, and he would always use Shang Ke as an excuse to break up with any woman that he was with. As a result, Shang Ke was always blamed for the breakups. Since then, the main character could only be forced to cross into different worlds. He would thus experience for himself, the hero’s “thrill”.

It’s HE

This story is GOOOOOD i’m very addicted to the plot, a good portion of angst and fluffyness for my taste. I really love this idea of multiple realms. While the MC kept dying for his sacrifice and the love between the MC and ML grow in each passing life i’m always looking forward for the next fresh plot.

Now i want to point out the good point of this stories which is even i you take out all the BL aspect from the storyline, the plot itself already very interesting. In comparison to if you take out much BL from a Chai Ji Dan popular novel it became very dull, like what happened to advance bravely live action version.

On the other hand in the fandom there more of the similar stories than what i could stomach, and it can be very boring especially if the author decide to complicate the story too much , too much system explanation , too much leveling, to much cultivation to gain better skill, and too much everything
i think in the end if its BL the reader would like more fluff and moe between the MC and ML rather than those mumbo jumbo

So balanced story between the two would be exactly my taste

Do you read this kind of novel? if you have some recommendation do let me know cause i’m still searching for a great story

Review : Sasaki to Miyano

Anybody is reading Sasaki and Miyano? This slow burning shonen-ai manga has been running till forever, enough until i forgot about it, last night i read it again and i’m happy with how it progress so far,

But i guess i must wait much longer for them to start dating or kissing

This manga start off as a 4koma so there was not much development just a whole bunch of fluffball


Miyano is a high school student with a secret–he’s a BL fanboy. He’s passionate about his hobby but doesn’t share it with others easily, until a chance encounter with a quirky sempai named Sasaki brings a new friendship. Sasaki doesn’t know what the heck a ‘seme’ or ‘uke’ is, or why he should be worried when Miyano threatens to draw doujinshi involving him, but he’s eager to learn about his cute new friend’s hobby!

I really love the character

Sasaki is struggling to identify the feeling that he have but pretty decent not to the point that its get annoying

And Miyano I LOVE HIM , he is one of the most gentle and respectfull seme i have ever read, He have a crush with sasaki at the first sight without knowing he is a guy, he was a little taken back by that but after learning more about Sasaki he soon realise that he don’t care he keeps falling in love with him.

He is non invasive seme he adore and cherish Sasaki very much, which i applaud
sometime i like the seme to be demanding and possesive but this time i like it this way

And boooy this scene tho

I think Miyano can be possesive if its necessary

And the GAP MOE is pretty nice right 💕

Omake from Harusono sensei twitter

Sasaki: Sempai please fix your own scarf

Miyano: Dont want, today so cold my hands are freezing/numb

Sasaki: Are you not wearing any gloves?

Miyano: i forgot it today

Miyano thoughts: Damn! I want to hold him!

Recommendation and Review: Brother by Ren Ti Gu Jia

i’m back with some more recommendation, i should have read some other stories before writing again but i just couldn’t help it

I Just finished reading Brother and i wish to say i’m really impressed
first Kudo’s to ChineseBLTranslation blog for hand picking greatest story over and over again


Title : Brother 弟弟. 
Author: Ren Ti Gu Jia 人體骨架.
Genre : modern urban , romance , drama . psychological


Xu Ping’s brother is a retard.
But this stupid brother only has eyes for his older brother.

———–Comments from the translator—————

Hello lovelies! I’m here to introduce to you another story that I loved personally. It’s about two brothers and their struggles through life. The autistic younger brother and his older brother share a very special bond, and this story goes into great detail about how this came to be, how they dealt with it and how it altered their futures. This story also stands out among BL novels in that it explores China in the 80s in great depth, as our protagonists live through major events in the country at that time.

There will be explicit content between the brothers, so I warn those against incest to stop here and save yourselves the anguish.

I hope this story will also raise more awareness for autism, bullying, and bullying involving autistic children. I study psychology as my major and know quite a bit about autism. I think the story did a decent job portraying an autistic person, but if you are autistic yourself, or know someone close who is, and find this portrayal to be inaccurate, please let me know.

The writer is also a genius to be able to write a love so taboo with the most purest kind of emotion, the love story and emotional turmoil was exceptionally genuine, raw, heart-wrenchingly  beautiful, but then it also have the most sinfully erotic love making scene i’ve ever read without going hardcore (by hardcore i mean bdsm and such) just the dialogue simply sexy


Catching a glimpse of the side character they seems to have different story , i would like to read another story from this author since it was so well written

Without spoiling much if you like to be sucked into a heavy story and have your heart be twisted in pain i  think you’ll love this story


Review manhwa: Momentum by Park Ji Yeon

BL Manhwa fans seems to like Wolf in the house manhwa by the same author

I havent read those instead i read this one first


Author: Park Ji Yeon

This manhwa is interesting from the first half already interesting but much simpler, potraying gay relationship through different couple and different circumstances with ‘western’ background, the art also fitted the storyline

But what was really exciting would be the latter half of the series where we dive into the ’50 shades of gray’ side of the stories

It potrays the theuraputic side of bdsm and the conflict bettween sub-dom control relationship and love

I like it and i would like to read more from the next chapters


Review: King’s Maker

I’m back with more recommendation, seems like i have a writing bug, since i keep finding interesting story i want to write about.
Again i would like to recommend to you two very good quality manhwa but since both are near complete and i could write more than usual i’m going to split them into seperate post

First we have

Kings Maker

Author: KANG Ji Young
Genres: Fantasy , Mystery , Romance , Shounen Ai ,
Summary: Wolfgang Goldenleonard, the 4th Prince of the kingdom, returns to the palace after years of living in hiding. He rejects everything about his new royal life, but is intrigued by the mysterious and dutiful Shin Soohyuk, a catamite of the King. As Wolfgang slowly opens up and learns the ways of the palace, Soohyuk begins to see something special about the wild, unkempt, and stubborn young prince. He might just be the one Soohyuk has been waiting for… the one who could light the flame of rebellion.

King’s Maker is a fantasy kingdom saga, i really lovee to read a good quality kingdom saga since its usually really exciting and i like political intrigue and wit’s battle type of story, with BL story as a plus

I basicly love everything about this manhwa a good plot, very interesting character, and beautiful artwork, and captivating naration, tho the ending felt too soon
However the good news is the author announced at the end of this series that it will have a season 2 as well as a printed version, awwww so exciting. But rumor says that the season two may not be available at Lezhin, which may cause us wont be able to get the copy easily

Manhwa/Manga Recommendation: Saha, December Rain, Given

Hi again,
So today i’m going to list up some of the manga and manhwa i’ve been reading recently. Some of which i think is interesting enough that i would recommend and some other i’m still not really sure but i’ll list it up anyway

Let me start with a manga since the rest of the list would be from manhwa and webtoon category,

Manga Title: Given
Mangaka : Kizu Natsuki


It’s stuck deep inside me and I can’t get it out of my head. Mafuyu’s voice is an insane and dangerous weapon.

That day, I started to feel that playing the guitar and playing basketball, both of which I liked very much previously, was becoming boring.

Uenoyama meets Mafuyu who’s holding onto a broken guitar. The moment Uenoyama finishes fixing the guitar, Mafuyu becomes completely attached to him. However, hearing Mafuyu’s song by chance leaves a deep impression on Uenoyama. An alternative love drawn by Kizu Natsuki!

Now this manga is recommended by a friend of mine and i really really really like it so far. If you know the manga Links, this is also from the same Mangaka, if you havent read Links i would also recommend that Manga. The art is beautiful, the story is slow paced but very engaging. you’ll love or be intrigued by all the character which usually make up for a good story
I learn from a review that the manga currently consist of 3 volumes and most likely will still continue


i found a fanvid in youtube that should be perfect for introduction

Manhwa Title: Saha
Manhwa artist : Lee Uin

Giju is pretty for a boy; he’s different. That’s why he was called names growing up, why he was adopted by a rich artist couple, why his stepfather couldn’t keep his hands off of him. Broken and lost, all Giju wants is to lead a quiet life. The last thing he needs is to get involved with a gangster. But there’s more to Young-do the gangster than meets the eye; he’s different, too. Though he may have tattoos inked all over his body, an imposing build, and a foul mouth, he’s a romantic at heart—he only joined a gang because of his first love. Set in Saha, a conservative seaside town in southern Korea, this is a poetic tale of two souls in search of their place in the world.

This manhwa is very very well writen, as if i’m reading a novel the scenes was very poetic, from the start i know i’m going to be loving it
Also love the character design of the main couple , a brute bara/bear-ish gangster guy with melancholic heart, and pretty guy which have went trough child abuse and come out as a fighter


Manhwa Title: December Rain


Fresh out of the army, Suchae decides to take some time off and travel around the country by himself. On the first day of his trip, he spots a guy who looks totally his type at a rundown bus terminal. The only problem is, it?s the same guy who was jerking off in the bathroom 5 minutes ago. Despite the possibility of him being a creep, however, Suchae is drawn to the mysterious stranger. He finds everything about him…arousing. Who is this stranger? And why is he on the road?Original WebcomicOfficial English Translation[3rd place Winner of 3rd Lezhin World Comic Contest]Original Webcomic for Contest

From the get go i know this aint going to be pretty ride, we will sure be faced with twisted plot. So far it have some sweet romantic moments between the two main character but soon shits about to go down, with the two guys on a road on a fugitive situation


Manhwa Title: BJ Alex


Every night at 10, Dong-gyun locks himself up in his room, grabs a box of tissues, and watches a live cam boy show hosted by Alex, a BJ (broadcast jockey). Timid Dong-gyun admires not only Alex’s ripped body, but his candor in sharing his sexual experiences with viewers. One night, Dong-gyun downs too many drinks at a school networking event and passes out. When he wakes up, he’s in bed staring up at a shirtless hunk. A hunk who looks an awful lot like…Alex.

Well this manga is well defined as SMUT so its most likely entertaining for some jerk off material LOL. Still to early to decide whether the whole manhwa is going to be good or be a train wrecked, but i dont have too much high expectation to begin
Alex character is a jerk for now, but he is HOT so yeah lets feast on that.



Other manhwa i’m reading 

http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/here_u_are/ >> a new manhwa, very handsome character design, also still to early to decide about the story

http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/a_paramour/>> a typical danmei vibe storyline

http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/cherry_blossoms_after_winter/?av=2>> already finished, simple and cute, very light not to much of yaoi action
