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.”

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

Spoiler

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.

[collapse]
I thought they were a relatively reversible couple.
Spoiler

Even though MC is the bottom, ML was technically his wife and ML is a crybaby lol. ML even started to get scared and insecure when MC showed his potential to become stronger than ML.

[collapse]

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

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

I absolutely love this novel. The following statement is not meant to be seen as a complaint (I think this novel is hard to translate), but an encouragement for others to give it a try! I REALLY WISH UPDATES CAME MORE OFTEN AND ON A REGULAR BASIS! (Hehe) Its a relaxing and fun read. I get SO excited when I notice an update. I truly hope the translator continues with this novel. Thank you very much for translating and wanting to share this novel with readers!

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

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!

I love the flow of the story.

The plot was enticing enough to capture my interest.

And love the characters, especially the cute ML, the clueless MC and 2nd senior brother..?

So it turns out ML really is practicing a demonic cultivation too. Or is it an innate ability.

He can control the mind. Shocking. I hope he wont turn wen jing into a puppet so he can know how true his heart is.

But the s*x scene is good too. Hoping for that but jjwxc will just skip it. "Like they did it then the next day....."

The plot is pretty good. I have a lot of questions though and I hope wen jing cultivation would improve.

This series is funny with a clever plotline and interesting characters and developments. Unlike other series, the side-characters have their own personalities and reactions to events. At this point, the main couple hasn't become a couple yet, but their interactions are entertaining. Although the characters are cute, the story is dark enough to remain engaging.
