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

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

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

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

Recommendation: Extraordinary Danmei Novel QWFOD, HM7MHTB, PTSB

Today i would like to recommend another danmei novel with extraordinary that have blow my mind and rock my world
i actually have 3 that i am really interested right now bewarned that the intro is going to be pretty long
starting from the top is my favorite and moving one the selection is going to be darker and darker

First we got a novel that i think is a major hit in the danmei fandom, This title really have blow my mind and rock my world, i think its deserve to be on of the best danmei chinese novel among hundreds of other similar genre, its pretty similar with my other recent favourite Heroic Death System with longer arc

Title: Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil
快穿之打臉狂魔
123275972-352-k868473

alternative title: Quick Transmigration Face-Smacking Devil
Author: Fengliu Shudai
translation link: http://keztranslations.com/quickly-wear-the-face-of-the-devil/

Summary:

The top hacker was chosen by the Lord God to be reborn as hundreds of thousands of villains,
Every world ended in a dead end,
Every end is tragic.
Finally he escaped the control of the Villain System,
He decided to enact revenge, change his fate as an abused slag
Even if his every bone is rotten,
He’ll occupy the heights of morality, even if it’s just the surface.

The Break Down-

  1. The main characters are not subject to one personality, they can be a devil, an angel, a charming villain, a loyal dog, a crazy wife
  2. 1v1, the seme is the same person from beginning to end.
  3. 蘇蘇蘇,雷雷雷,金手指粗粗粗。(Bunch of gibberish, looks like the Chinese version of 1337 speak)

This next story is also pretty exciting with equally awesome MC but much darker cause the ML’s pretty psycho yandere type but still can maintain their cute side ^^” i have no idea how the author can manage that

Title : Have to Marry Seven Men, How to Bail!
必须向七个男人求婚怎么破!
af5a8cafjw1f4yjbouc1rj205k07sdg6

unfortunately we havent got any translator on this one since the story is pretty awesome i’m sure some one will pick it sooner of later
We do have a complete spoiler thread in novel update
https://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/have-to-marry-seven-men-how-to-bail.46834/

The MC is this perfect guy who quit his perfect job and wrote a novel on a whim, which turned into a bestseller. But he’s bored with life cause everything comes easy to him. He’s pretty much a genius. He’s also gay and a top, but it seems like he’ll be converted to bottom, unless the final outcome is reversible… So on his way to meet a one night stand, his car crashes and he gets transported into the world of his novel. In there, he wrote 7 villains, who were very popular with his readers. They’re based on the 7 sins and are all psychos in one way or another. He gets this cute system who tells him that it’ll grant him a wish (cause MC doesn’t care whether he can return to the original world or if he dies) if he fulfills the duty, and MC agrees after some thinking and threatening. The duty is to make the 7 sins demons fall in love with him. Later revealed that he needs to propose after they’ve fallen in love, and they need to accept for the duty to be considered complete.
(alexfilia novel updates)

The ML is very Yandere in this one but i think the MC is also manipulative and smart to handle all of these personalities
so the ML is a soul split with  different personality which represent 7 sins
Pride
He like adopt kids of clan that he have slaughtered and when
Envy
He wants what other people possessed and tries to steal them
Wrath
He likes violence and want to find people who are stronger than him
Sloth
He likes to drugs and manipulate illussion
Greed
He is very very possessive and take away his freedom
Lust
Well you can guess by his name he loves sex, he put a spell on mc to make him addicted on having sex with him
Gluttony
He a heartless demon who feast on people soul

this next title is something more controversial i would say cause the story incorporate rape, gore, and bestiality. Tho its very twisted storywise it still fit my taste, i dont think its for everyone cause it gets really really bloody violent and sadistic. its violent is equal with Killing Stalking and other Gore Yaoi Manga So BEWARNED
in the good side the back story angst of each beast is pretty interesting.

Title: The Palace of The Twelve Sacred Beast
十二圣兽宫
PTSBc2

translation link: https://exiledrebelsscanlations.com/the-palaces-of-the-twelve-sacred-beasts/

SUMMARY:
Gu Ting Yu is a veterinarian who has a fear of animals. Hunted by the same nightmare all these years, he is desperate to find out the reason behind those dreams. He then travels into a fantasy realm by fate, entering the Palace of the Twelve Sacred Beasts.

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

33236688

Title : Brother 弟弟. 
Author: Ren Ti Gu Jia 人體骨架.
Genre : modern urban , romance , drama . psychological
http://bltranslation.blogspot.co.id/2016/01/brother-by-ren-ti-gu-jia.html

Synopsis:

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

0U4225955-0.jpg

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

Comment : Loveable character, interesting storyline, cuteness and angst

Summary:
He is someone who would reply to every one of Qing Kong's Weibo status updates, as well as sit in front of his laptop waiting in the Qing Kong channel with other people to listen to every one of Qing Kong's songs at the fan gathering time, he would listen to every audio drama that Qing Kong participated in and then he would write a very long review under the audio drama post. 

He may do all of that but he would never knock on the other man's door to say: "Hi, Qing Kong-sama, I'm your number one die-hard fan!"
