Who Dares Slander My Senior Brother

Description

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

Transmigrating into a novel one morning, Wen Jing arrived at the side of the one he worshiped and admired the most, becoming a loyal hound that was willing to go through fire and water for his senior brother.

Even the most arrogant cultivator said: “There is no one in this world who can enter my eyes, but only Jun YanZhi is truly noble.”

Wen Jing grew up alongside his senior brother, idolizing his senior brother beyond all means.

Unfortunately, he was ignorant, and as for this novel, he had only read half of it.

Midway through the storyline, he finally realized that things didn’t seem to be the way he thought they were.

Wen Jing: “Last night, Senior brother infiltrated Master’s abode. Master, please take heed.”

His master: “Nonsense! Your master was inside the abode all night last night, and did not see anyone else.”

Wen Jing: “Last night, Senior brother left on his own without permission to meet someone. Martial Uncle, please thoroughly investigate.”

His martial uncle: “Nonsense! Last night your senior brother and I were drinking and chatting merrily, all the way until morning.”

Wen Jing: “Last night, Senior brother was improper towards me……”

His senior sister: “Nonsense! How can your senior brother possibly do that kind of thing? Don’t tell me you’ve long held those kind of intentions towards him, and unable to obtain what you wanted, you’re now framing him?”

Many years later.

Wen Jing: “There’s this evil brute, specializing in using his top-notch, exquisite looks and elegant disposition to fool people, and everyone is in the midst of danger while not even aware of it themselves.”

Jun YanZhi: “If it wasn’t for you, that evil brute would most likely still be struggling in pain and suffering.”

This was a pretty wild ride! Don’t expect the ML to be saintly... but the twist at the end—I guess it was foreshadowed at the beginning but still felt a bit abrupt! And I really had to admire the MC’s inner conflict and that scorching sacrifice! They were really cute and somewhat unhinged together.

Love it! A very interesting take on a "typical" storyline; I love seeing how MC & ML's relationship changes as they both mature and get to fully know each other more.

Characters: 5/5

ML is powerful but not actually OP, which I thought was very refreshing. He's not the great senior-brother that represents strength to all, he's not perfect, he's not hopelessly yandere. He won only 17th in the sect competition. MC also starts weak but gradually gets stronger and more mature. I love both of their personalities as well; ML is... more>> gentle and sentimental but can be ruthless, and also wants to be spoiled by MC. MC is naive and innocent but also smart and logical.

Spoiler

I also love how hard ML was trying to seduce MC but had to do it super subtly because he had to maintain his elegant & gentle mask hahahaha

[collapse]

Plot: 5/5

Very interesting! There's an air of mystery throughout the whole time, and again the premise is very unique. However, I'm a bit afraid there's going to be plotholes at the end, because I don't think they'll really be able to tie it up well. I wish there wasn't a third party behind the scenes, because I imagine there will be and MC&ML will end up grouping together to defeat them and it'll be more typical. So far though, it's pretty good. The whole thing with the "system" is a bit weird though.

Translation:

It started off really good, but recently quality has been eh. Still (just barely) endurable though, and since the alternative is nothing I am still thankful to the translator. <<less

The MC and ML interactions are super cute. The MC admires the senior brother, Jun Yanzhi, because he was the main character in the novel that he crosses into. So Yanzhi suddenly gained a little tail that follows him around everywhere, even when he tries to push MC away, the MC always come running back "Senior Brother this, Senior brother that", and Yanzhi fell in love with the adorable tail.

I love how YanZhi (top) can act cuter than the MC (bottom) as he secretly try to make the MC falls in love with him, while not ruining his cover of being the ideal senior brother. YanZhi's cute sides only comes out when he's with the MC, he's still a calculating and ruthless character towards his enemies, so you get the best of both world!

At first, Jun YanZhi might seems cold and uncaring, but he's a classic case of hard on the outside and soft on the inside. After falling in love with the MC, he acts as an ideal and graceful senior brother, but he's squirming on the inside trying to figure out how to trick the MC to fall for him and give him more attention. Yanzhi's easily jealous and prideful, but that's really just his cute way of saying "I'm mad you know, come spoil me", which is adorable and not overwhelming at all. The MC can seems shy and unreliable as he often follows YanZhi around, but the MC can be rational and stand up to speak out, as shown later in the novel.

What impressed me the most was that the world building and the plot were inextricable tied to the romance, as if the world was made for their romance instead of the romance just being an afterthought. The story borrowed a lot of elements and cliches from other novels but the author somehow wrapped them together in a very satisfying way.

The story worked surprisingly well as a mystery novel. When you think you know what's going on, everything you know turns on its head. All the major plot points were... more>> resolved, but near the end there are a couple of details the author (or maybe it was a translator error, I'm not sure, I read this in Vietnamese) got wrong as well as a couple of unresolved details but those weren't important.

The main couple was really cute. In the first half, the MC follows the ML around but the ML was also trying really hard to seduce the MC.
Spoiler

Which bastard said this was fluffy ah? After chapter 20 it got progressively darker and darker (the story even warns you in chapter 1) before picking back up in chapter 60. ML has some yandere tendencies and there's a bit of bestiality.

I was a bit shocked that... basically everything that happened in the novel was the result of someone being gay... <<less

What does it mean to trust someone? Is it enough to blindly believe in that person, to follow them with utter devotion and faith despite not knowing their true motives?

In the end, trusting someone without understanding their true self will only lead you to a dead end of disappointment and betrayal.

As the main characters of Who Dares Slander My Senior Brother find out, true trust must be earned--through suspicion and inquiry, through fire-forged bonds, through opening up about both the good and the bad. And only through that trust, can... more>> they build a love that could last millennia and lifetimes.

1) Story

The young teenager Wen Jing is an adorable fanboy of a certain Xianxia novel's protagonist, the perfect gentleman Jun Yanzhi. Unfortunately, Wen Jing dies before he can finish reading the ending of this novel. Fortunately, he ecstatically discovers he has transmigrated into the world of that novel. Alongside his "JYZ-senpai please notice me" routine, he begins investigating the underlying plots and mysteries of the original novel... and discovers forbidden secrets he was seemingly destined to uncover.

At first, the story of Who Dares Slander My Senior Brother gets off to a somewhat slow, almost slice-of-life start. However, I found myself shockingly gripped by the advent of the aforementioned mystery/conspiracy elements. I loved the use of dramatic irony in particular. I couldn't stop reading to see where the constantly evolving dynamic between Wen Jing and Jun Yanzhi would go next <3

Don't get me wrong, the story definitely had plenty of flaws. Some of the plot points were kind of shoehorned, including a certain time skip. After Wen Jing and Jun Yanzhi's amazing reconciliation about 3/4 of the way through, the plot really struggles to finish on a strong note. It uses rather dry exposition dumps to tie up the remaining plot points, which weren't very dramatic/compelling. In general, the ending was a little abrupt and shoe-horned; the pacing could have been improved by fleshing the final arc out, extending the story 10 chapters or so.

Still, I will say that I absolutely adored how this novel gave a wonderfully plot-relevant explanation for the MC's transmigration, incorporated into the reveal of the MC's true identity!!

2) Characters

To be honest, my favorite part of this novel was the MC's growth! Wen Jing started off as a naive, fanboying, mildly annoying little kid. This fit perfectly since he did transmigrate at only 14-15 years old. Then as the plot revelations started piling up, I was extremely impressed by his realistic reactions and growing maturity. I could empathize with his changing emotions of denial, suspicion, and anger. I adored the scenes where he actively confronted the ML over some of these revelations. Ah, it was overall such a pleasure to see his worldview mature, from blind worship of ML, to willing to kick ML's ass, to accepting both the good and bad sides of ML <3

The ML Jun Yanzhi was also a really fun character, as the archetypal "appearing to be a perfect gentleman, yet actually a scheming mastermind under the surface". His motivations, methodologies, and powers nailed all my favorite tropes~ Any more than that is spoilers lol.

I will say I felt Jun Yanzhi's possessiveness/Yandereness was rather overdone, including some very questionable dubcon/noncon moments in the first half of the story. I'm also not sure what happened to his personality near the end? The MC kind of started overshadowing him after the two reconciled.

Still, the frequently changing relationship between Wen Jing and Jun Yanzhi was such great fun to read. Man I'm such a sucker for these "initially blindly in love --> uncover secrets and get disillusioned with each other --> find out the truth and get back together" plots.

Now for the supporting cast... I enjoyed all of MC and ML's disciple-brothers--they really did feel like a real family. The MC and ML's shifu was also very compelling, so I'm glad he had such an important role in the story and extras. I will say I wished the disciple-brothers got more closure, and that the shifu showed up more near the end. The writing of the villains could have been done a bit better (see the aforementioned "dry exposition dumps" above), but I appreciate that the author did try to give everyone 3-dimensional motivations.

3) Overall Enjoyment: Who Dares Slander My Senior Brother has a wonderfully unique and enjoyable take on the classic "transmigration into a xianxia novel" genre, and hits many of my personal favorite tropes. It ran into some problems in execution (especially near the end), but it was definitely worth it overall!

[Side note: I totally agree with one of the other reviews that literally everything that happens in this novel, both good and bad, is ultimately caused by gay love hahahahahahahaha] <<less

So far so good!

The plot is interesting and well-paced! It can keep you attention and leave you wanting for more with all the mysteries and unanswered questions surrounding the characters lingering in the background.

The MC, Wen Jing, is not an OP character but he can be smart and endearing!

No BL so far, only mild hero-worship. But, I can sense an interesting dynamic coming up!

Looking forward for more of this one!

Summary:

The main character is about to read the final chapter of his favorite light novel when he's suddenly caught in an accident. He is reborn as a child in the world of the novel as an insignificant character. Upon becoming a teenager, he meets the novel's protagonist, who he has always admired. He joins the same sect with the intention of just following his "noble" senior brother's story. But now that he is personally in the novel, something seems... different...

Review as of Ch.12:

The story has yet to really develop, but... more>> I am preemptively giving this 5 stars because of the quality of the writing.

The author has put a lot of detail into the world-building and set up for the story. Even though it's only been 12 chapters, the characters (including the side characters!) are likable and have distinct personalities. The pacing of the story is smooth -- not too rushed, not too slow, just eventful enough to keep your interest and steadily progress the plot.

I will update this review later.

Update:

Unfortunately, this series has switched translators. While I appreciate the new translator's efforts to keep the series going, the releases are in dire need of editing, and the chapters are practically unreadable. (It seems like MTL -- where the words are directly translated into English, but don't have any context, barely any grammar, and don't make narrative sense. For example, sometimes a person or technique's name will be translated into nonsense.)

I'm sad that I'll need to drop this series for now since the new chapters are so difficult to read. <<less

The plot, mystery, and cultivation aspects of this story are what draw you in. And while I personally think some aspects of the mystery were revealed a little too early, it was still interesting to watch for if the main character could finally figure it out.

The romance tho. It started off cute and endearing with the main character’s affinity for animals, but it was promptly ruined by the non-con nighttime shenanigans while the main character was sleeping. Nothing explicit happens but the fact the non-con nighttime shenanigans keeps happening ain’t... more>> for me chief. Plus, the main character was 13 when this story started, and the main lead was already catching feels at 22. He grows up soon after, and I learned age is but a number in cultivation stories so ok sure I can overlook that.

But my biggest gripe with the story so far is that while I appreciate the effort of the most recent translations, they're a far-cry from the work of the previous translators. It gives me MTL vibes and is difficult to understand, so sadly I'm stopping here. <<less

I enjoyed reading this story mainly because the translator does a very good job at translating. It's easy to read and understand. To the translator, please continue translating until the end. You are doing a very good job.

The other reason is because of the presentation pf the plot. The author takes time to build up the characters, specially the MC. I can only hope that it wont be too long before we reach the part that everyone here is waiting for.

The MC is a good character in the sense that... more>> he isn't too stupid or too helpless. Thanks to his knowledge of the plot, he can think of ways to adapt to the situations even tho they don't go according to plan. The ML is so mysterious. Something happens in the story and you suddnly realize, "so that was him!". Towards the MC, he takes his time to wait. Though MC is fanboying right now, I think he is nicely innocent towards the ML. I can't wait for the moment when he realizes his feelings.

I also wish the ousted FL to have her own romance with someone else worthy. I like where the subplot is heading :) <<less

After all this praise, I don't want to be that one person criticizing the novel, but there is one important thing that keeps me from enjoying the relationship and novel like I'm supposed to, and it has bugged me for my whole read.

Where is the core foundation for this relationship. They say that the junior disciple is a fanboy of senior disciple, but where is it? All I'm seeing is that the MC is just generally just respectful of the ML. Where is the shining eyes of adoration! The willingness... more>> to not part unless ordered to! Tending to the senior disciple's needs besides when the guy is in life threatening danger or something! They say the guy is a loyal hound, but I've seen cannon fodder characters in other novels do a better job at it than him!

Not only that, when did the ML even fall for the MC. Because the MC was missing all this important stuff that is supposed to establish their supposed relationship, we don't even get a scene where because of all the fanboying, the ML slowly starts to notice the MC. In fact, when we do get the supposed "fanboying" scenes, the ML has already fallen in love with the MC because of it supposedly having done it before. When! Besides when he treated the guy differently when they first met we see no other signs of singular attention.

Thanks to that, a lot of awkward and weird scenes that could easily be endearing was kind of more on the annoying side. It's a shame because this novel has so many good sides to it. Yes, it can be hard to follow but I can go along through it if it wasn't for these key components missing that leave me with no gratifying feeling when the MC and ML are together. I want to love the clever writing, but when there is no spark to start the fire, so all marshmallows being roasted aren't actually getting toasty for me to want to eat. <<less

I absolutely ADORE this novel! Wen Jing is such a good kid (T__T) and surprisingly I really like the other sect brothers as well, each are their unique person. Not only are the characters likeable, the plot is incredibly strong as well. My friends and I are already coming up with countless theories as we laugh and cry over each update.

The mystery is so enticing that you can't stop reading. It seems like there's so many questions but not enough answers! At least, the answers not yet revealed. I often... more>> find myself re-reading this story and coming upon revelations afterwards, so I really do encourage a second read ^^

In addition, the story is well rounded that it not only centers around the main couple, but it also touches on the events that occur outside of Wen Jing's involvement.

In conclusion, this will be an enjoyable read you won't regret! <<less

It's still too early to say that this novel is awesome, but I really loved the chapters that I've read. A positive thing about this novel is that it doesn't show the ML to suddenly have emotions for the MC. The development of emotions on part of the ML is gradual, although it seems very restrained till Ch 24. As for the MC, he's a complete fanboy. So, he blindly follows the ML. I don't know how things will progress in the future, but for now, I would gladly recommend... more>> this novel to anyone.

Lastly, translator-sama, thank you for translating. Please keep translating. <<less

The MC has low emotional IQ, and is stuck in his belief that the ML is a good person thus blind to everything he does that doesn’t add up 🙄

The ML has fallen for the MC a long time ago but instead of telling him, drugs him to sleep every chance he gets and basically performs non consensual acts on the MC stopping short of r*pe 😒

These two things basically ruins an otherwise perfectly good cultivation/mystery story.

Hmmmm.. It's been a while since I've read this and I just decided I would do a review for this (haha). Anyway, this novel is really interesting. I like how the novel did with its side characters. Also, I'm pretty much on edge on what really is the motive of the ML on this world since.... (you'll know xD). I also like how the MC thinks his way through every situation given to him, he is level headed and isn't the harem-type MC we are so familiar of (so far).... more>> The novel also progresses smoothly (and a bit slow paced for me). And the tortoise is a plus. Really. Where can you see flying tortoise? xD kudos to the author and to the translator (enxiao) *crosses fingers <<less

I think this novel isn't bad for anyone interested in mystery/cultivation genre with BL, the plot is not as thick as what I've expected, but it's still a decent one.

But now comes the problem that I personally may or may not share with others, the main characters. I just find them a little too bland.

... more>>
Spoiler

I was only on 5-ish chapters in when I saw a comment on the translation page where someone says that they're starting to hate how passive MC was. Normally I don't mind passive characters, besides, it's just the beginning of the novel.

but the moment I hit chapter 30 and above, I realize that I still couldn't bring myself to care about the MC. Not much is known about how he is in his previous life, so we can't really get a clear grip on why he acts the way he is. Although it is clear that he is kind, hardworking and somewhat hot-headed, it wasn't distinct enough to not remind me of one of those empty anime harem male characters that people are supposed to self insert into.

What's more, the conversations between him and ML is always so... idle that it just didn't seem like they match with one another at all. It felt like they're just asking each other, "hey, how's the weather today?", which is something you'd do with your co-workers. The author also likes to only tell us that they're getting closer, but never explicitly show us. Can't you give us some conversations where it looks like they're enjoying each other's company? Even if they do have the time to talk, they always exchange about... 5 dialogues or so, (with the ML saying no more than 10 words) and then ends with them immediately sleeping with each other or the ML leaves.

The ML is slightly better in terms of characteristics, but it was still too bland, so bland that I think the sentence "aloof immortal but passionate towards MC" is enough to summarize his whole entire character. I know some people would say that it's just because he wanted to act like a saint in front of MC/he's an introvert, but if he doesn't leak one or two things more things about his other characteristics that has nothing to do with the MC, then he's no different than being an accessory to the MC. (Which I've seen in many, many other danmei novels, ngl.)

This is a great story! It is still rather early, but I've really enjoyed how they are directing the plot. The MC doesn't seem particularly OP which is nice for a change. He's pretty cute, and his interactions with everyone are great.

The story flows nicely, the pace is good--slower than some similar novels but I don't think that's bad in any way. I am looking forward to more. Read it!

The plot is really interesting! I highly suggest you read it. Sometimes I forget that this is a transmigration novel. The plot kept me reading. The MC is adorable. I was really hoping for reverse harem, but that didnt happen.

Towards the middle of the story I couldn't bare to look at ML in the same light. Doing such shameless things to MC!
