Fake Slackers


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

After class placements were decided, the school’s two infamous ‘problem youth’ not only shared the same class, but the same desk.

They’re clearly good at studies, but pretend to be slackers. Fakers from head to toe who just keep walking farther down the path of their performance.

Hear on the grapevine about the two big brothers who always fight over the last place in class.

Basically, this is a serious comedy. About the little matters of growing up.

I only found out they were translating this a moment ago, but I read it in Chinese, and bought the audio drama (yes, they have an audio drama (❁´ω`❁))

This is unquestionably, one of the sweetest books I've read. The main characters are Xie Yu and He Zhao. The book follows their daily lives at school (and basically makes you reminisce your highschool days). (*^▽^) /★*☆ Another pro is that the developement of their relationship is realistic, the ML isn't your... more>> typical, overprotective a-hole, the ML and MC have a healthy relationship, the girls in it are well written, characters other than the MC and ML have backstories and are realistic, and the overall feelling of the book is light-hearted and sweet.

If that wasn't enough to convince you, it's packed with fluff, hilarious moments of banter between classmates, and occassionally some tears, this is just the perfect book to read if you're looking for a slice of life novel. ヾ ^_^♪

P.S I love this book soooo much <<less

I find this story a bit fresh, well because the MC and ML are still in high school LOL. It's time to clear my mind from my usual middle-aged iceberg ML LOL LOL LOL.

One thing I find it funny here is because MC and ML are both acting stupid, no, they're earnestly competing the spot of the lowest grade in the school. Both of them also don't know that the other's a genius. So, when they got together later in the first half of the story, both of them... more>> worrying over each other bad grades, like : "what should I do, my lover is beyond help, he's so stupid, I should help him to make his grade better..." BUT! what makes it hillarious is since they stil don't know that the other one is a genius, then their worry just turn out like this to each other : "what should I do.... my lover is acting like a wise smart person, urging me to study, while his own grade is actually even more worrisome than mine...."LOL! <<less

The story is worth the MTL effort. Still looking forward to the great translation the chaleuria team is doing because I probably missed a lot of details.

It's a story of two HS boys who became deskmates and faking their school rankings, trying their best to stay at the bottom of it. They also act as the perfect idiots in school, MC with his cold-face and i-can't-be-bothered attitude and ML with his charming, arrogant im-an-idiot-so-what facade.

... more>>

their acting are so good it came to the point when the two are dating and both of them are worried for the other one's future prospect. MC thought ML is a hopeless student, and vice versa. Like MC made a comprehensive reviewing plan for ML which he sent anonymously via email to ML while ML bought review books for MC which he left anonymously on MC's side of the desk, lmao.


Each of them has their own reasons. When you're in that age, everything seems like a big deal and tend to do self-sacrificing things so the reasons are believeable.

Also, their classmates and friends and families are supportive and hilarious. There's really no big villains, just people being humans. The side characters are not one-dimensional and hilarious at times.

It's a really good read while I'm waiting for a strong typhoon to pass by. I hope the translator keeps up their good work. <<less

A cute, sweet, and funny story about two problem students and their school life together. I finished the entire story in Chinese, and it's really one of the best school life slice-of-life stories you can find. Both main characters are likable and endearing with interesting motivations, and the chemistry with each other is really charming and believable. Xie Yu is cold but inwardly soft, and He Zhao is ridiculous but has his serious moments; they work really well playing off each other. Their dynamic is compelling and leaves you wanting... more>> more even after you finish all the extras (which are highly satisfying and give you really interesting indications about their future together). I seriously recommend this web novel! <<less

I read this entirely in Chinese because a good part of Chinese fandom (as in, China) was in raptures over it and I was curious as to see the fuss.

At the end of reading it, my foremost thought is simply this: I'm old.

(I'm twenty-two, in case any one is actually wondering).

The language is fairly simple. There's a lot of humour. The characters are generally likeable and their interactions with each other are cute, even if I'm sure I've seen each of their tragic backstories lifted wholesale from a Korean... more>> drama before (sigh). The supporting cast (their classmates) are a riot as well. But.

Even though I came into this novel knowing full well it was going to be a high school romance, I guess I wasn't prepared to be reading a high school romance. These characters' main concerns are winning the inter-class sports competition and doing well on the national exam to get into a good university. If I recall correctly there's a Cultural Festival of sorts where the mains' class puts up a dance performance. They're in love and they think it's going to last a lifetime.

Which it may. God knows first loves only last forever when immortalised in the pages of a shoujo manga. Or the C-Novel equivalent with gays, which is this book. But I just look on that youthful optimism with a good deal of eye-rolling and cynicism, unable to suspend disbelief even within these mere 100+ pages of fiction.

I think you would enjoy this if you were fresh out of high school and teeming with hope for the future. Or a little more elderly, as long as you've retained some optimism and remain young at heart. As I am neither, reading this book felt not unlike how I imagine my parents would feel if they were to watch High School Musical at this point in time. Even as I type this I feel the mysterious urge to cluck my tongue and mutter under my breath about young people these days. So natural cynics take note. <<less

This is the best novel ever! I've read it more than five times and listened to the audio drama (season 1&2) too, but still can't get enough of them. They're so cute, sweet and funny❤️
