The Transmigrated Senior Martial Brother


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

In a stallion novel there is always a Senior Martial Brother like this:

In the early stages of the novel, his innate talent is high, his cultivation is good, his appearance is handsome, and he has an intelligent, cute younger Martial Sister as a fiancée.

In the middle stages of the novel, he is caught unprepared and defeated by a young disciple (the protagonist) in the sect who’s hardly remarkable at all. From then on, he falls from his godly altar and loses his brilliance. Even his young Martial Sister leaves him for someone else.

In the late stages of the novel, he continues to blackened, going down the Demonic Path and becoming the major villainous boss. However, the protagonist still ruthlessly defeats him and his soul is eternally sealed.

Once Qin Mo opened his eyes, he discovered that he had become this Senior Martial Brother.

Your enjoyment of this novel heavily depends on a single factor: whether you enjoy the archetypal r*pey Yandere without any good writing behind the trope. There, you've probably already made your decision.


Summary: Transmigrated senior brother MC attracts the attention of a very very Yandere ML, who actively frames MC to isolate him

Pros: Extreme Yandere for those of you who are into that stuff. Some good ideas about "oh a single choice can turn someone into a saint or a demon" (... that aren't followed up on at all and don't... more>> make a lot of sense). And I guess morbid curiosity to see what would happen next to MC?

Cons: Oh boy.

    • Very abrupt and rushed writing style. It feels like ML falls in Yandere love over like 2 chapters. We don't get to see him fall in love, it's completely brushed over as "oh MC dropped by and helped him out from bullies, welp now ML is in love I guess). I think the author tried to give some side characters depth, but then they either a) got shafted by ML being possessive or b) abandoned that development and died.
    • The transmigration thing was completely dropped and honestly rather pointless.
    • The plot was just disjointed in general, without a central storyline/goal. The worldbuilding was pretty lacking, with the usual Xianxia "hey here have this random secret realm or other world thrown in out of nowhere".
    • MC's character arc is not hopeful at all. It's a relentless downwards spiral of his situation continuously getting worse, mostly because ML is ruining everything. The story ends on an awkward note riiiight as MC and ML were just beginning to reconcile.
Overall... yes, this is extreme Yandere with explicit noncon, and IMO it's not even well-written or deliciously angsty or anything. It's literally just that particular trope in the most stereotypical/meh form possible. <<less

Wow. Where do I start.

I must say that I relatively enjoyed the first half to three-fourths-ish of the novel. I say relatively because I kept getting confused and thrown off by what was happening. Qin Mo and Lin Zizheng does a lot of dimension/interface-hopping throughout the novel and I was just sitting there like, "Wait, what just happened???" but Plot (TM), I guess. If you ignore that, a lot does happen in every dimension, so you won't be bored. The plot pacing isn't too fast nor too slow, but there... more>> are few times where the author uses time jumps without any warning. There are also some of your typical deus ex machina plot devices,


e.g., Fox Lord/little fox turns out to be the prince of the nine-tailed foxes/fox tribe and his older sister is super OP. She was chained in a place and Qin Mo's the only one who is able to save her just because he happens to be the descendant (or was it reincarnation... or maybe he just received the dude's martial arts, I don't remember) of this guy whom I never really bothered to figure out who the heck he was - because at that point I was just plowing on and stopped trying to understand everything lol. Due to this, she owes him a favor.


Now, the thing that really peeved me the most is that Lin Zizheng held on good for most of the novel. He was obsessive, yeah, but he never crossed the bottom line. This spoiler, you might want to read because it wasn't tagged and may be a trigger warning for some people.


I really hoped r*pe wouldn't be used as plot device. I was so, so, so, SO (did I mention SO????????) disappointed. I read Attica's review when I was already around chapter 60 and I nearly dropped it, but I still held on to hopes. But, nope. And not only does he r*pe Qin Mo in a fit of jealousy, he does it several times iirc. He also forces a sort of lovers' binding flower thing on him, where if anyone other than your lover touches you, you get this burning feeling. (Eventually, this becomes significant for something else that happens later on.) I was so upset and felt so bad for Qin Mo that I shed a few actual tears lol. Even when I got up to the part where Lin Zizheng says, "I love you" to Qin Mo, I did not feel moved.


So that is the main reason why I took off stars. Honestly, I don't think I would've finished this novel if that event occurs early on in the novel. But since I was already nearly done, I decided that heck, I'll just finish it.

As for the ending, when I got to chapter 103, I was under the impression that there were more chapters because there were still loose ends. It ended really abruptly and I was so confused lmao. But then when the author said in the author's section that she felt it was a good place to end, I was like, okay I guess you can sort of say that.


That's only because when Lin Zizheng asks Qin Mo if they could start over, Qin Mo goes, "I forgive you, but I don't think I can ever love you..." To that, Lin Zizheng answers with okay, but he thinks to himself that he has time and one day, Qin Mo will come to love him. Call me whatever, but I was satisfied that Qin Mo doesn't all of a sudden realize he's been hopelessly in love with Lin Zizheng all along. I know in some novels, a lot of hand-wavy stuff happens and everyone's happy at the end, so this ending redeemed some of the disappointment I felt.


If you're not bothered by these things, then this is an okay read. Otherwise, you'll be happier spending your time reading something else. <<less

I found that the reviews are quite awful and for those hating this novel for the r*pe tag, I find it ironic how you read this novel with a r*pe tag and condemning the part about r*pe and stuff. Also tagged with possessive and manipulative character + yandere ML being so is ok imo. Being an orphan and seeing their parents getting killed, sent to the cultivation world and got bullied everyday, if anything anyone will go insane so I suppose ML is on the line with what's supposed to... more>> happen. When you're so down and someone helps, it might get addictive to the kindness so ML being possessive to MC is a given.

ML is quite nice in being very supportive of MC and tried his best to restrain himself but his possessiveness doesn't allow others to like and to be near MC to the point of paranoia. It was quite smooth until it's a bit jumpy around 50+ chaps cause the got into another cultivation plane I suppose with not much info for now. I'll keep reading to see how it goes. <<less

i really like that MC take a while to adjust to his new life and his new body and he has moments when he fumbles and fails, like having no clue how to move his spirit power at first. it's a little more realistic than those novels where the MC takes half a paragraph to accept what happened and he somehow automatically knows everything about cultivation without even having to go through their "new" memories.

the only thing I find dubious is the MC's past identity as a surgeon. in c5... more>> it says he remembers his past 20 years of life.... there is no way a 20 year old could be any kind of a surgeon when 6 or 7 years of college are the norm to become a general practitioner doctor. it hasn't said anything about him being a genius child prodigy and he would have had to start college at age twelve or thirteen to be an established surgeon at age 20.

other than that, though, I am enjoying the story.

on a side note, I see the the people who rate all BL as 1 have been by. I honestly don't get their compulsive need to rate without bothering to read. <<less

I hope this novel gets fully translated by someone, for I see potential in this one.

The teaser is written pretty good; hardly to no grammar-errors, and you can follow and understand the phrases well.

I kind of envy those that will find this story later when it's fully translated, because although the premise isn't new by any means, I was still wondering how the author will handle their own version of the stereotypical "Senior Martial Brother"-storyline.

1. ML does not hestitate to hurt the MC

... more>>

Although I did not check the reviews before reading, I had an idea of the plot as I read. I understand that he's a yandere but his disregard of the MC makes him seem more like an antagonist rather than an ML. After they reunited, he was very accomodating to the MC but it was just... too little too late. Also he felt no remorse and takes no responsibility for directly ruining the MC's life.


2. Great characters go missing


His original master, his junior sister, that one guy that was held as a medcinal s*ave (who was freed only to be captured by demons), the fox demon pet thing, his second master???? All amazing characters with a great potential back stories, but with the way the plot is developing, it doesnt seem like we'll ever get to see more of them.


3. The plot THICKENS


Speaking of plot, it seems as though this entire novel is just undermining previous conflicts by heavily focusing on bigger plots. And they keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger. AND THOSE PREVIOUS CONFLICTS NEVER GET RESOLVED. Like what's gonna happen to his old master when he finds out about the plant the MC found for him? How about his poor junior sister? Is she going to blacken or stay on the rightous path but become a common enemy of the cultivation world? What about the mysterious tribe behind the dead s*ave owner?? IS THIS WHAT A PLOT HOLE I SMELL???


4. MC needs a break


And with all of these heavy plots overshadowing each other, I don't understand how the MC hasn't cried himself to sleep or at least blanked out. I get that his character is supposed to be resilient but... even the most determined become tired. It's come to the point where in the middle of a battle, I would wonder when the MC is gonna catch a break.


5. Is it worth it?

And that's why I decided to check the reviews. Answer: I guess not. All that thick dog blood for what? A yandere that's all yan and no dere? For plot holes that are so deep that you can find a neighborhood of angler fish taking a nap? No. For someone else, maybe. But not for me. This novel was so emotionally and mentally draining--I don't want to read something like this ever again

6. I forgot to mention the translation: it is FANTASTIC. ABSOLUTE PHENOMENAL WORK. <<less

So far, it's been riveting. I like that the MC actually needs time to adapt to the transmigration and that he brings his experience and skills from his previous life with him. It's interesting to see an MC who isn't OP, but also isn't useless. The new translator is great; they made it a very smooth, enjoyable read.

I created an account just for this.

For the first several chapters:

- MC is a surgeon in his past life, but his skills were never shown once he transmigrated (or maybe because he doesn't need to?) But oh please, just let him be the typical college student transmigrated into a novel he read, then. He's just a surgeon in name.

- ML fell in love with MC so fast. (Like, even I found it fast when Huacheng fell in love with Xie Lian, but turns out was just admiration.) Here, I don't... more>> know why the LZZ already got so possessive of QM when their interactions were few. Was it behind the scenes? This is not supposed to be hidden, though. This is their relationship development we are talking about.


I don't understand why the ML chose the demonic path when both paths (Demon and Buddha) will make one become strong. ML said that the demonic path will make him stronger, but if the original plotline was followed, the Buddha path is very compatible with him.


For the characters:

- MC is an ice block. I guess he's supposed to be a kuudere as stated in the tags, but this is not "kuudere". He's a robot in human's clothing. He feels warmth for a second to his peers (but he rarely shows it, like, with an icy smile just twice or thrice. That's it) It's like lighting a match in a cold winter night, the warmth only lasts for a few seconds. And no, I don't agree that he's a cinnamon roll. Was he like this in his past life too??? Even the original senior brother is better since he's not THAT cold.

- ML is a yandere (I actually came here for that). I can tolerate his obsession with the MC but

when he framed QM (MC), it was infuriating. Why did he have to frame him??? (Wait, let me answer that question). He frames MC just to show that everyone, except for him (ML) cannot be trusted. ML isn't even that strong to fight the sect leaders.


- The side characters are so pitiful. They're always dropped and forgotten even without the arc reaching a conclusion.

For the plot:

- What plot? You mean all those random realms popping out of nowhere? In the first arc/world,

the MC and ML went to another world. How about the side characters??? What happens to them?


In the next world,

MC and ML went to the demon realm. What happened to the supposed to be revenge???



the MC and ML fell into a lake then went to a new realm. Again. ML was so s*upid for not checking the lake. Like, are they the only ones that got s**ked by the water? How could he not even be curious what's with the lake in his territory? And in this arc, the MC's peers and enemies were also captured by the demon realm, also the fox lord. They were dropped. If MC comes back, are they already dead?



In the Nascent realm, there comes the Black Cavern then the Tomb Palace.


- The writing is so messy. It's all over the place. There was no character development at all for any of the characters. This contains a lot of plot holes that were usually caused by the appearance of random realms. It's the typical senior brother story that tries hard to be "unique" by adding realms.

In short, it's not for me. I don't plan on continuing this as I think it's a waste of time. I reached far enough to come up with this conclusion. Good luck on reading this. <<less

Reading this story genuinely makes me uncomfortable. I knew what I was signing up for going in, but I couldn't help it because I love BL cultivation stories too much. However, this ML is honestly ridiculous, and it's not even just about the r*pe. It's one thing if it's written well, but this yandere is too much.

I haven't even gotten to the r*pe part yet, but ML's emotional manipulation of MC is ridiculous. For the sake of obtaining ML solely, he's willing to turn the entire world against MC on... more>> false charges.


He deliberately made it seem like MC was a demonic cultivator, causing all the sects and even MC's shifu to turn away from him given the evidence. It's one thing if he was going to clear the charges, but I'm pretty sure ML had no intention of doing so and fully intended on having everyone abandon MC.


And honestly, he turned yandere way too quick. Sure having a bad backstory and being bullied can twist someone's character, but even so. His attachment to MC and ONLY MC is way too much, as well as his possessiveness. In addition, his original character was supposed to be a compassionate and righteous Holy Father. Sure you can argue small things can make a big difference, but his character is entirely different.

Even putting aside everything else, it's in every way a typical cultivation story. MC gets quite a bit of golden fingers, not just the "protagonist" ML. He's way stronger than it makes sense for him to be. Like he's facing multiple people who are whole REALMS higher than him, and he just jumps right in and directly attacks. It's not a special or particularly enjoyable story, and the more I read the more mediocre I find it. MC's character is just arrogant, cold, and indifferent, and he doesn't use his brain. He somehow kills a guy from a really strong and protective group, yet afterward doesn't even try to cover his own a$$. There's almost no character development, or any sense of character really. His tracks are just covered by the protagonist's halo. There's also no point in this being a transmigration story. The plot only moves forward by introducing new characters or moving them into entirely new settings, both of which are cheap plot tools that shouldn't be used in the shallow way they are.

As long as they're separated, it's just an unoriginal tr*shy cultivation story. When they're together, it's a r*pe-y unoriginal tr*shy cultivation story. <<less

I’ve only had Qin Mo for ten chapters but if anything happened to him I would kill everyone in this room and then myself. I would die for this precious bean, I would kill for him, if he gave me a smile I would destroy the world for him, , , anyway read this if only for how utterly precious and adorable Qin Mo is.

I wanted to read something dog-blooded but this is just dog. Sometimes it's fun to read something angsty that makes you feel bad in your soul but this doesn't even deliver on that. Yawn.

I kept wondering why interesting characters were being introduced only to disappear forever like 5 chapters later and then I realized it's because if the author allowed literally ANYONE other than the ML to interact with the MC for more than ten lines of dialogue, that character would instantly supplant the ML as the preferable love interest.

Actually... more>> my favorite (said ironically) thing about this story is the fact that the MC was originally a twenty-year-old heart surgeon and he was in the middle of heart surgery when he transmigrated. If I was getting heart surgery and my surgeon walked in to meet me and was twenty years old I'd be like "No way. Absolutely not. Get me a new one." I don't care if this mfer is a prodigy genius who started medical school at twelve years old, if someone is cutting into my HEART, I want them to have a FULLY developed frontal lobe, JUST SAYING. (This is petty, but it's always the petty things that annoy me the most.)

Also, this dude transmigrates in the middle of heart surgery and never ONCE thinks "golly, I wonder what happened to the patient I was literally in the middle of performing surgery on I hope they're alright." Not even once. "I sure hope someone finished that critical medical procedure I completely flaked out on otherwise I probably killed someone innocent by mistake." Nuh-uh. Never occurs to him. This is why you don't let twenty-year-olds be heart surgeons. <<less

The male lead ruined this for me. I mean, it's there in the tag, but I wasn't expecting him to be such a massive scumbag.

The first part of the story was good up until the ML started emotionally manipulating the MC, and the translation quality is good, so two stars.

Two stars mostly for the translation work which was well done. The story itself is, as others have said very cookie cutter. I read because I thought it would be okay I don't mind tropes and cliches, but ah.

For me it was really too boring. Frustratingly so. It's the level up your cultivation to become stronger kind of story and it focuses on that more than the couple (at least to where I got). Most of the beginning is just the MC leveling up his skills in really uninspired fights.... more>> There's no mystery elements when you think there might be and there's no romance or any real development to the relationship to ease the tedium of leveling.

The MC was so wooden half the time you want to shake him to say or explain anything to anyone.

I like yandere MLs if done right but it was just a grabby hands ML who doesn't develop out of the personality he's shown as having as a kid.

YMMV I didn't finish it. <<less

This was a fun piece of smut, which I really enjoyed at the beginning, though I thought it got a bit messy at the end. The main characters kept finding higher realms and meeting side characters that would only appear for a couple of chapters. It reminded me a bit of The Legendary a Master's Wife in that regard, though not as repetitive or drawn out.

I found the main couple's relationship a bit frustrating, it seemed hot and then cold for no reason. I prefer characters to be fully in... more>> love by the end of the story, but in this book, it feels like Qin Mo gives in to the other person's love rather than actually falling in love with him. I'm not sure how the reader is supposed to root for that kind of relationship.

That said, I really enjoyed the translation and the beginning of this story. It's unfortunate that I had to power through the end. <<less

I dropped at chp 59 as I could no longer delude myself into finishing, as stated by Attica in their review the writing is really messy and all over the place. There is no central plot line or theme to the story and things happen randomly out of the blue with no build-up. I completely lost interest and will not finish ever which is sad as it started out with an interesting story then nose dived so quickly and just could not save itself.

MC named Qin Mo is a surgeon who reincarnates into an "evil villain" Xianxia character. Qin Mo acidentally changes the future of Lin ZiZheng aka "the hero" from a Righteous Cultivator to a Demonic Cultivator by being nice to him.

... more>>

Twist, history isn't changed that much, Lin Zizheng frames Qin Mo for the crimes QM was accused of in the novel so his life is ruined. This is all a plot by LZZ to keep Qin Mo all to himself because he "loves" him. Since Qin Mo is a cinnamon roll to pure and good for this world, reading about Lin Zizheng abusing him and conniving to mu*der his friends & loved ones & even pets is sort of nauseating.

Violence shown as love, messy writing, non existing plot line, characters appear for a few chapters to disappear forever, ML doesn't care about the MC at all, he just wants to own him like an object. He can do a lot for the object, but it's still an object, so it's thoughts and feelings don't matter at all. MC can be swapped for a pretty fridge and the plot would be pretty much the same.

First, I want to thank the translator for hard work. It is not half-assed mtl but a good job done. I read it till the end just because of it. +1 star for translator's work.

Second, novel stays true to it's tag. It dips in darker side. Romance is almost nonexistent. ML needs to get his brains checked with his severe paranoia and obssessiveness. Did not enjoy but as I said tagging is correct so no point deduction here.

Third, all this weird world/boundary hopping is quite confusing and doesn't make sense.... more>> -1 point

Fourth, author keeps introducing side characters just to totally forget about them and pull out of the blue to fill plot inconsistency and forget about them again. Why bother? -1point

To sum it up, I would rate this novel as 3 stars but translator deserves this extra point. No desire to read again but as an Otaku with heavy baggage no real regret about time spent on this novel. <<less

I read this in Chinese year ago, and kept going with it to the end in the hopes that it got better.

It did not. It made me throw up in my mouth a little, actually.

(... In my defense, the r*pe tag was NOT on the NU page at the time.)

So, I guess if you like tr*shy, yandere, rapist MLs with zero good things going for him, go nuts reading this. If you don't like those things, stay far away. Any possible redeeming qualities the novel might have had... more>> are eclipsed by the awful. <<less
