A tale of urban demons and spirits, the mysterious exorcist and I.

Do you believe that supernatural creatures exist in this world?

I’m an ordinary college student while he’s the handsome and powerful demon exorcist from the mysterious old manor.

Our paths had never crossed before and yet, our fates became intimately entangled after one chance meeting.

The knocking on the coffin in the dead of the night, the little girl weeping inside the box-shaped structure, the good friend of mine who was cursed…

Together, the mysterious exorcist Mr. Wen and I embarked on a path into the world of the grotesque and motley.

Gradually, I realized that I had developed special feelings for him that went beyond friendship…

But, the problem is I’m a man!

Honest, I thought my friend lied to me about this being BL, just to lure me in to read a horror. Try not to read this at night, alone, with the lights out. Not gonna lie, I almost pissed myself.

Anyway, on to the good stuff. It's refreshingly not focused on the leads romance. There is no romance at the moment. But instead you are given a goofy friend, clear headed love interest for said friend, a strange boss, a snobish cat and a really normal MC.

The story is really engaging... more>> with a mix of humor and drama. You will also be introduced to some little known Chinese beliefs and tradition. Not usual for modern BL.

As long as the horror is kept to a minimal, I'm hooked. <<less

I really liked this story at first. The first two arcs or so gave me nightmares. I liked the MC. But I think there were two points where I started liking the story less.

... more>>
Spoiler

One was at the start of the school trip arc. The starting scene with the family in the car felt so cliché to me, especially since the previous arcs had felt fresh. The second was the meeting the MC's family arc. I couldn't understand how the MC could accept his mother so smoothly and without doubts or resentment after years of abuse.

[collapse]

While I haven't had a problem with the story points, per se, other than the one mentioned, I've grown to like the MC less and less, to the point where I almost can't stand him.
Spoiler

I have two problems with him. First, he recklessly makes naïve promises he has no way of knowing if he can keep but believes in himself through the power of... idiocy, usually forcing the ML to clean up the mess. Second, he rushes into danger like an idiot. He does the stupidest thing he can every time.

[collapse]
It doesn't help that he has the exact same argument with the ML Every. Single. Arc.

Part of the appeal of the story initially was that it felt like there is a secret about the MC that only the ML knows. This potential plot point, however, seems to be going nowhere. Another problem is that the ML is kept so mysterious, I feel like we still don't really know him, so I don't have particularly strong feelings towards him, other than
Spoiler

being slightly grossed out that he had a one sided affair with MC's aunt.

[collapse]

At this point, I'm not really enjoying the story. <<less

In my opinion this novel is like BL version of XXX Holic. It quite predictable (if you read this after watching xxx holic I say) but I like where it is going. There is a mystery to it and obviously MC and ML has a past (previous life) relationship (which differs it from xxx holic and more to 'Betrayal Knows My Name'). It seems that in prev life MC is a woman?

I really love novels that focuses on their traditional beliefs, reincarnations, painful waiting for their loved ones and etc...... more>> Oh and don't forget about ghosts and devils. You can learn new things about ghosts and devils when MC is given new tasks by the ML.

I have high expectation for this novel especially about the MC and ML relationships about how they met, what happen to them previously and all.

And...

The ML is really cold to the others than the MC [ T.T ] And has a lot of secrets.

Thank you translator for translating this novel. I really regret didn't learn Chinese. If not I will just finish it in one go. T.T <<less

Haha.. Something that my reader soul would love! Again! We got a supernatural, mystery BL story. So far, it really drags you into the story which involves imagination of beings not from here. I wouldn't a spoil anything from the recent chapters published but I can tell that this would be interesting (haha Mr. Wen) though it might be a personal bias for the genre but it's looking good ^∆^) / Check it out :) (Now) lel~

Everythings lovely. Great horror, ML is cool. The only let down is MC, he was okay in the first volume till halfway second, now I just want to hit him. Although his actions are understandable, it doesn't make it any less irritating

I actually read this like about a year ago.

This is one of my favourite genres. I liked each arc of the story, the supernatural/fantasy elements and the cast.

I took away 1 star because of the ending.

Spoiler

I'm not even sure if it's a HE... It reminded me of xxxHolic ending where MC never ages while his friends aged as he waits for ML. It's one of the saddest endings I've read and dammit I wanted that HE for them so bad especially after finding out MC and ML's past.

[collapse]

Overall the romance part is on the light end (def just shounen-ai) but people who enjoy this kind of genre (supernatural, case based, mystery) will enjoy it. <<less
