Review: Seizing Dream

So right now i would like to introduce yet again another danmei novel, this time from an Author called Fei Tian Ye Xiang

This author seems pretty populer in the danmei community the other title that they wrote as 2013 which was already adapted into a Donghua (chinese anime)

Seizing Dreams

Within the dream of the dreamer, the one who was dreamed of awoke.

… Borges

“I exist in the sunlight, the wind, between the heavens and the earth, and also in dreams.”

One night, Yu Hao, a college student who was at his wits’ end had an unexpected encounter with a mysterious visitor – “General” – who had dream travelled. He led Yu Hao in solving the countless riddles that abounded in the realm of the conscious, and lit up the fire beacons on the meandering Great Wall.

Thereafter, the darkness retreated, the sun rose, and when the long night was thoroughly lit up, the him who existed in reality was reborn.

The black dragon that roared, the lighthouse and demonic eye on the coastline, the rain forest before Chichén Itzá, the fierce beasts that wreaked havoc in the Colosseum…the bizarre projection of reality in one’s consciousness reflected the hidden place that the sunlight in reality couldn’t touch – the innumerable sins of the human heart.

The journey of seizing dreams continues, and one can only hope that the sun will continue illuminating the human heart.

Fire beacons on the Great Wall were lit up to signal a border invasion.

for those who haven’t read the novel i couldn’t reveal who the ML is since that is part of the mistery/surprises. But this character OMG i love him despite being cool and awesome like other ML he is also too cute, ofcourse i equally adore the MC as well he is a precious being that must be protected

I respect danmei novel with exciting plot something you could enjoy even if it was not a BL, i also do not mind the slow romance development as long it keep being emotionally engaging, i heard some comment about it being real slow in the romance department, but you can always enjoy the fantastical plot

Review: Promised Sealed With Our Kiss

Synopsis

When we met for the first time inour first year of high school, he saw my contempt, but silently continued to clean;

In our second year, he kneeled in front of me while enduring the ridicule of others, “Can you please beat me up to vent your anger, then forgive me?”

From then on he would calmly fulfill our appointments: that horrible wound in physical education class, his guilt when he wore three layers of pants, the bruised and battered body that presented itself before my eyes, then I carried the trembling him…….

In our third year, we fell out because of the anger from being betrayed – but now that I think about it, how could that have been betrayal, why did he dare to be friends with me? Even though it was because of my rejection that he once again had to endure violence, what hung on his lips were still “I was the one who lied to you, it’s my fault for making you angry.”

Shi Yan couldn’t help but lift his head up and control the heat in his eyes, while his ears were still ringing from He Nuo’s words that were filled with gratitude, “You are the one who treats me the best!”

I’m so happy everytime i found a novel that captivate me emotionaly

I like everything about this novel, being a sucker for angst, slice of life romance

The Promise Sealed with Our Lips

last time i felt this way about a novel was with Brother, or Till death do us part which bear quite a resemblance with the nuance surrounding this novel

They all have some sort of realness despite it being a fiction, real raw emotion and very well described well developed character. Also they are written in a classical historical background.

i’ve been putting this one on reading list for a while, but just decide to read it over the weekend by the time the translator decide to release the translation until the ending of volume 1 and it was a weekend well spend

i need to note though that this novel have a trigger warning of Rape, Violence, Infidelity for those who avoid this kind of potrayal

one thing that would turn off some of the reader was that the ML; Shi Yan is kind of a scum which make the MC; He Nou already difficult circumstances much difficult but he is also the only one that could reverse that life and bring light and warmth to him

A quote that descibe that from the novel was [ He Nuo has always lived in a simple environment, and Shi Yan was the only foreign invader in his space ]

Without Shi Yan, He Nou would have continue living a soulless numb life but with Shi Yan he would have to face that enormous pain, would that be better?

since the author do not plan on picking up the second volume i wish another kind soul would adopt this wonderfull story

Great Story With Tragedy Tag part 2: Rebirth of Degenerate Slave Abuse Tyrant

I can’t believe I haven’t written my review of this beloved favorite of mine, I thought I’ve included this when I was writing the Great Story with Tragedy Tag Part one

Son of the Senior Chancellor, Luo Wei, loved the wrong person in his past life. This mistake caused his entire family to be wiped out, and in the end, he was cast down as a pleasure slave, and died in the wilderness during the depths of winter.

Somehow, the heavens did not give up on him and gave him a second chance at life. He believed this rebirth was only meant for atonement, and not love. Yet, as he plotted his vengeance, Luo Wei quickly realized that passion would again be his fatal downfall.

The once emperor, the lover from his past life, his beloved in this life, and an opposing empire’s monarch who is doomed to love him, who is supposed to be good for whom?

And who is supposed to hurt whom? A hero chasing after a dream, an empire of a thousand years, a kingdom stretching across the known lands, all flashing before the eyes like a mirage. Is it worthwhile to trade a hundred years of my loneliness to give you a single lifetime of joy?

some readers would classify this novel as a dog blood novel, and many of them avoided the story because its extreme reader abuse tragedy

狗血 Dog blood – Mainly used as a genre or an expression, means a dramatic, over the top, or unbelievable, or very fake scene. Some say it comes from Hong Kong TV dramas where people spray dog blood for exorcism, then it was overdone and is now a meme. Others say that it started out as 够shit where 够Gòu means sufficient or enough, used in slang as very. (hellitrans)

In other terms close too Makjang in K-drama, but I don’t think that this is your regular Dog Blood or Makjang since there is so much more to it.

This story also a well written heavy plot drama, with emphasis about love and hate, compassion and obsession, regret and redemption

As I’m reading I feel that this story may have two MC which is the protagonist Luo Wei and the supervillain Long Xuan. The Author put so much emphasis in Long Xuan and I assume she at one point had considered Long Xuan as the ML again, she did mention that she may write an Alternate ending where Long Xuan and Luo Wei end up together. But I’m glad that the Author makes the precious Wei Lan as the ML (Main Love) which give Luo Wei experience compassionate true love in his 2nd life to make up for the suffering he experienced in his previous love altho it’s short-lived.

I’m so so sooooo in love with the love story of Luo Wei and Wei Lan this two wounded person, it’s so precious how their love heal each other, even when their love bring them grief like a Romeo and Juliet when all odds are against them

That being said this story will MAKE YOUR HEARTH BLEED! with trigger warning of Rape, Torture and Gore not to mention LOTS and LOTS of angst.

I also love how strong our main character Luo Wei is. With that much tragedy and abuse going on in his previous life and repeated in this lifetime I’m surprised that he was not broken and gone mad with his hatred and revenge instead getting stronger and resolute as ever to use his 2nd chance to protect the family he betrayed and cherish the chance to love and be loved by them this time.

Is it worth reading? I would say HELL YEAH if your hearth can handle Tragedy story (oh you little masochist!) then do give the story a try HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Danmei review and recommendation; Sha po lang, Faraway wanderer, Heaven official blessing

shapolang1

I’m such a lazy blogger, even tho I only do simple review and recommendation which dont really take much effort it seems like I’m losing the ability to write, I use to write much more stuff back in college 😦 so i’m really sorry for not doing the stories justice with my half assed review cause these are in my opinion a very very good stories, do check out the review section in novelupdates for more opinion about this stories

anyway i would like to recommend 3 bl novel that i really enjoy actually i have 2 more but since the genre is different lets divide with 2 post, in this post I shall introduce some of my new favorite which are more plot-heavy, rather than the romance side the action and wits battle takes a lot of portion of the storytelling, but it doesnt make the relationship become less important it is still very much the core of the story

1st recommendation are Sha Po Lang by my current obsession Priest, oh i’m so in loveeee with this author since Guardian (Zenhun) he/she makes a really awesome well-written story

Description
In the age of the Great Liang Dynasty, the lives of the people were made convenient with steam-powered machines that run on a fuel named Violet stream Gold. Chang Geng, who lived in a small countryside village, shared a distant relationship with his mother while his stepfather was away most of the year round, and the only people he was close to were two little kids, the village teacher, and his yi fu – adoptive father. But his life was flipped upside down one day following the barbaric Man tribes’ invasion, and it turned out that his entire identity had been an illusion – not only was Chang Geng himself not the country boy he thought he was, but also his mother, his teacher, and even his beloved yi fu…

shapolang3

So the protagonist /mc of this story is Chan Geng and his love interest is his foster father (yì fù / 义父 ) Gu Yun, the age gap is a turn off for some people also considering their background as ‘foster’ father and son. But for me this is a really really good background to flesh out the character their reasoning and action, it’s not just put there to add more taboo in the story without any point but it will be the foundation to drive the story forward

The most interesting part about this novel is the world building of steampunk era in fantastical ancient china. a reader at novelupdates compare it with anime: Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, but this one doesn’t have zombie like the aforementioned anime

The protagonist troops, as well as some of their enemies, can operate a mech like combat armor, the plot revolves conflict surrounding Zhujilun (violet stream gold) the fuel source of this machine (just like how black gold (petroleum) incites war in modern era)

Steampunk
Steampunk is a subgenre of speculative fiction, usually set in an anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history setting. It could be described by the slogan “What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner.” It includes fiction with science fiction, fantasy or horror themes.

Mech
A large, mobile suit of tank-like armor. A pilot is inside of the Mech, or Mecha in some cases. Heavily armed, with weapons such as blaster, photon cannons, LRM’s, SRM’s, and Railguns.

*in sha po lang the mech is not a gigantic robot but a Powered armor/Powered exoskeleton like for comparison Iron Man
https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PoweredArmor
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powered_exoskeleton

Another novel also from priest that i’m currently following is
Faraway Wanderers

005umZO2ly1fv14d11hrzj30wt1ck4b1.jpg

A tale about the former leader of a special organization served under royalty, now leaving his past life behind and unintentionally getting involved with the martial world.

https://www.novelupdates.com/series/faraway-wanderers/

you know i love this kind of angsty premise, the mc was pretty much prepared to die with no regret i’m sure it torments him greatly when he finds someone who makes him wish to live more now than he ever had, I haven’t research further about the plot (spoiler) from what i gather its going to be very sad especially for the side character part but don’t worry the info said its happy ending.

(btw i havent figured out how to properly write the summary for this one let me add/edit more later)

The next novel is from Mxtx the author of modaozushi, and this novel is the newest and the next most popular one after modaozushi

Heavenly official blessing

41120874_287758838726586_4066137228122911504_n

Eight hundred years ago, Xie Lian was the Crown Prince of the Xian Le kingdom; one who was beloved by his citizens and the darling of the world. Unsurprisingly, he ascended to the Heavens at a very young age. Now, eight hundred years later, Xie Lian ascends to the Heavens for the third time as the laughing stock of all three realms. On his first task as a god, he meets a mysterious demon who rules the ghosts and terrifies the Heavens……yet unbeknownst to Xie Lian, this demon king has been paying attention to him for a very, very long time.

https://www.novelupdates.com/series/heaven-officials-blessing/

btw the character design of this story is beautiful!!! the author describes it really well in the novel and make it easy for talented fans to produce cool fanart out of them

Xie Lan this adorable mc is probably the most pure-hearted/kind mc from a danmei novel i’ve ever read but not a marry sue either at least not that shallow. he is mostly struggling, helpless, and pitiful as his previous life spiraling down out of control but he is not weak, in the first few chapters he was described rather comical and subjected to ridicule but gradually you found him endearing and capable to solve his mission as a heavenly official. The ML HuaCheng is a misterious demon king, who is really devoted, always there and protecting the mc from the shadow despite the MC doesn’t really recognize him from his previous life. The background story was conveyed in flashback like in Mo Dao Zu Shi but in this story the hint of HuaCheng strong devotion and longing is even more fragmented then that of Lan Wang Ji (Modaozushi) and the reader need to pick it up pieces by pieces, also considering that this story is longer than modaozushi.

however the setback for these novel are that we the english reader need to be patient upon waiting for translation update, i dont blame the translator cause i think the better the story the more its takes to translate and deliver the story like it deserves in this sense i think the translator done a good job so far i just hope they keep going and dont gave up on the story

The Classics is always unreplaceable: Banana fish, Furuba

The first anime that you watch, your first favourite, or a manga that give deep impression on you will stay with you for a very long time, that was furuba and banana fish to me

the first anime i ever watch was probably sailormoon and doraemon, but the anime that i watch in japanese and got me to learn japanese was fruits basket, i think it was also the first anime that made my cry and squeal almost every episode

fruitsbasket

I love love love the anime so much, i also read the manga but i must admit i feel for the anime more cause its more compact and i am a Yuki x Tohru shipper (i believe the cannon pairing was Kyo x Tohru) anyway i’m really super excited for the news that Fruits Basket new anime version will be relaunch next year and they promise to finish the show this time around YAAAAAAAAY

altho i will be sad to accept that my Yuki x Tohru is not canon, but i’m really happy to be able to se my beloved anime girl Honda Tohru on screen again

Another classic which are currently airing and become and instant stealer is ofcourse BANANA FISH, i had the manga in my original native language back in the day, i believe lots of fujo back in the days gave this manga a very high rating.

Banana_Fish_Titular_Art

I know you’ll be saying it was not BL well yeah sure, but it was always mention back then on anime magazine as a classic when talking about BL history
anyway you see banana fish as bl or non bl , we can admit that it have a really good story which is still relevant to be adapted into anime 34 years after the manga first ended (it was from 1985-1994)

Also i love how this manga trigger heavy debate among fan especially regarding Ash and Eiji relationship nature some of my favourite below

More than Friends, More than Lovers: Exploring Ash and Eiji’s Love

I truly stands for Ash and Eiji in a romantic love with each other, hey asexual romance do exist its time to watch it on an anime

b65ca54d253b86e90d09fdf2f9c561e2
its canon baby no use to deny
banana-fish-maurice
banana fish are revering to a classical movie maurice

On the other hand i also agree that banana fish is not of bl genre but it is still a shoujo manga genre (bl is a sub genre of shojomanga) tho the plot carries it self like a shonen manga, which is a charm for banana fish

The reason of why banana fish is not bl is simply because the author said so, i think she just doesnt want banana fish to be restricted to specific genre

And also it was not because of the lack of sexual romance between two male protagonist, actually there are some bl manga which are devoid of sexual scene, categorize as shonen ai (example of popular one was komatta toki ni ha hoshi ni kike)

anyway Banana fish have reach episode 21 from the scheduled 24 episodes its one of those EPIC anime that you MUST watch for once in your life so please watch if you havent already

with allthis new adaptation i trully hope that my other favourite series will get pick up again and be getting the ending they deserve, especially my all time fav juuni kokki T^T i really need to see Taiki and Gyousou back T^T

Upcoming BL : Theory of Love etc

Apparently OffGun are casted in a new BL series for 2019 , as a good OffGun Shipper Fangirl i am, ofcourse i should put out a few word to promote ^0^

MoDaoZuShi review

A few weeks back i’m finally catching up with all of the existing updates for the highly raved Modaozushi which alternatively translated as Founder of Diabolisme , of Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation

if you haven’t heard about it, its a very popular Danmei novel which is already adapted to Manhua and Anime/Donghua. The production house of the anime was Tencent which is probably the biggest tech company for games, social media etc in China right now.

So i can say the animation are in good hand, however due to restriction of censorship which impact a lot of BL in china until now MoDaoZuShi is also on the radar and was temporarily taken down from Tencent for readjustment. Apparently they said some scenes are to gore but well IMHO they are probably just making whatever excuses since they now the source material was BL, again WTF China moment

Well enough with the rant i would like to introduce this piece of awesomeness to those who still haven’t read it yet, i say please read the novel and then watch the anime it really is super good

Summary

As the grandmaster who founded demonic cultivation, Wei WuXian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was backstabbed by his dearest shidi and killed by powerful clans that combined to overpower him.He incarnates into the body of a lunatic who was abandoned by his clan and is later, unwillingly, taken away by a famous cultivator among the sects—Lan WangJi, his archenemy.

This marks the start of a thrilling yet hilarious journey of attacking monsters, solving mysteries, and raising children. From the mutual flirtation along the way, Wei WuXian slowly realizes that Lan WangJi, a seemingly haughty and indifferent poker-face, holds more feelings for Wei WuXian than he is letting on…

First i really love the character
the main character (MC) Wei wu xuan/Wei Ying/Yiling Patriarch

mo_dao_zu_shi_1231
Trouble Maker , Prankster, Hero Complex young man with a kind heart, willing to sacrifice his whole being to protect the weak and do what he think is right tho by doing so he was demolished and get really fucked up by the situation

and Lan Wang Ji/Lan Zhan/Han Guang Jun

Lanwangji
Stoic, Rule abiding, Romantic well we all know that wei wu xian will end up with lan wang ji so let me spoil some of the most heartwarming background , after wei wu xian death lan wangji travels across country playing his guqin playing ‘inquiry’ which is a song to communicate with ghost in hope to find wei wu xian lost soul and he keeps doing it for 13 years

fmv (may contain spoiler)

But not only that all of the character from the villain until the minor character are all extremely intriguing
https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/MoDaoZuShi

The plot

i loveeeee the storyline of modaozushi if could describe it is like putting up pieces of puzzle and you’ll get much clearer view when you dig deep into the story, and its really enticing never boring

Now for new reader of modaozushi its going to be pretty confusing for the first 10 chapter since the story fast forward to a decade after the main event and its going to reveal piece by piece of what happen earlier in the story in a flashback. But pleaaaaseee hang in there cause its going to be really reallyyy good

also as i mention each character have several name or title we need to remember,
they have courtesy/common name which they usually called by, birth name for close friends and family, and title which is what they are famous by, thus this also will be very confusing but as you read you’ll get the hang of it

reading the character guide will also be very helpful for newbie
https://exiledrebelsscanlations.com/gdc-character-and-sect-guide/

The animation (donghua/anime)
tencent really give a nice touch by combining 2d and 3d animation into the series, to sometime we may see few flaws in the 3d but for the most part it was beautiful especially the beautiful ancient china scenery
ofcourse some part from the novel was ommited to adjust for anime and because the damn censorship but it is still very2 well done

there is a very nice review for the donghua available in youtube @DongHua reviews

as the review mention i also would suggest this anime for non BL fans cause its really worth watching for the great storyline, i hope we’ll get to watch season 2 next year

preview may include spoiler

As you guess i’m loving the story guardian zhenhun even tho the drama was restricted to bromance as usual it fail to develop its full capacity but i’m happy since it let us to the existence of  the AWESOME original story, plus the 2 main actor was actually really good on potraying the veiled romantical background we deserved despite its restriction

damn beautiful fanaart

synopsis:
The Special Investigations Unit is a covert organisation that no-one in the city knows about, dedicated to investigating bizarre occurrences beyond the comprehension of the living. The Chief Zhao Yunlan isn’t a simple guy either, being the inheritor of the Guardian Order, he has always been a righteous conformist, excelling between realms of the living and the dead. While investigating a school suicide case, Zhao is attracted to the calm and reserved Professor Shen Wei, but the Professor seems to be rather fickle towards him…

this story is much more comedic than guardian but also some tragedy, and heartwarming stories of brotherhood , as an avid reader of danmei/bl novel i found myself not caring whether the bl romance to soo loong to take off and got invested on the cute and then tear inducing story, as if i’m not reading a BL novel at all

Well the characteristic i should mention about Priest is that He/She doesnt write explisit sex like what i’m used too in other BL however it doesnt make the romance aspect lacking since it is brilliant on the emotion building department

2nd i would like to recommend is SILENT READING

Summary:

Childhood, upbringing, family background, social relations, traumatic experiences…

We keep reviewing and seeking out the motives of criminals, exploring the subtlest emotions driving them. It’s not to put ourselves in their shoes and sympathize, or even forgive them; it’s not to find some reasons to exculpate their crimes; it’s not to kneel down before the so-called “complexity of human nature”; nor to introspect social conflicts, much less to alienate ourselves into monsters.

We just want to have a fair trial – for ourselves and for those who still have hope for the world.

A seme thug specialized in dealing with various kinds of disobedience vs. a cowardly and dissolute uke descended from a rich family

This one is a more crime investigation action story with plot an twist very interesting to read and intially you’ll think the main pairing was someone else if you havent read the spoiler, its refreshing cause we keep on guessing whats going to happen next and as the other novel the romance to some time to kick off also

i’m also trying to read the other novel such as imperfection which was futuristic mecha story but its to vague and early right now to reviewing, if you have read the Priest novel please share your opinion as well ❤
