While scrolling past the BL updates this past year you may have noticed a few titles that don’t seem like the normal slice of life or quick transmigration novels. Whether it be A Crowd of Evil Spirits or Misplacement Game, these are both BL Horror, one of my favorite cliches. Unfortunately, some of my favorite ones are not as popular as I’d like them to be, so I’d like to share them with and hopefully encourage you to read them!
“Since childhood Gu Wuji has regularly encountered ghosts and was one day involved in an infinite world of terror, just– I treated you as an evil spirit, why do you want to hug my thigh?” – Description
This story revolves around Gu Wuji, A beautiful teenager and poor third rate actor who lives in a house which has its own problems with ghosts. In the middle of cooking his beloved fresh black chicken, he’s suddenly transported to a horror scenario, an abandoned villa creeping with ghosts.
[Main line task triggered: Find the abandoned villa’s hidden truth]
Along with 5 other strangers, Gu Wuji is tasked not only to survive in this haunted villa, but to also reveal the past of the strange ghosts that lurk here. When confronted with one of these ghosts, a deathly pale face standing mysteriously by a window, Gu Wuji raises his hand and…
This story is about a teenager who befriends ghosts everywhere he goes.
While we see no hints of romance yet and we’re only at the beginning of the ongoing 214 chapters, this novel has an interesting premise and a great main character that always makes me laugh.
“‘I wasn’t born a lucky person, I’m just too strong.’
On his way home late in the evening, Xiao Li found a letter asking for help and inexplicably came to an unknown place. He had to finish the task given before he could succeed in returning to reality. In the legendary haunted school, Xiao Li looked at his companions’ task of ‘survive until dawn’ and then looked at the tasks displayed in his book:
Tell me your name.
Tell me what you like.
Xiao Li: ????
He was very confused and then refused.” – Description
Like the one before, this one’s main character is a beautiful teenager who gets caught up in horror scenarios, except with a bit more romance and family dog blood. Our main character, Xiao Li, is a bastard son of an elite family and a slacker at school, who has only one ‘friend.’
While sleeping in class one day, he’s transported to a horror scenario. In a group of strangers, he has two tasks: to survive until dawn and to find the truth of the ghosts. Only, it seems he’s been given a few more hidden tasks?
This one is being translated by one of my favorite translators, whose taste you can be sure to trust. Not only that, but our fearless Xiao Li is one of my favorite characters ever. It also has a concept I haven’t seen before, the ghosts that Xiao Li finds the truth of can come along with him to different scenarios and real life.
This one has a lot of potential, can’t wait for more!
“The protagonist is a slave to beautiful faces – he likes good-looking people, can’t say no to a pretty visage, and is filled with thoughts of love. One day he bound with a target-attack system where he can travel from world to world and experience love with the most handsome (key point!) target!
The number of players in each game is not set. The protagonist has only one target – the most handsome one. As he falls in love, he realizes… the other players perhaps, maybe, probably… have Horror? Survival? Escape-type games?” – Description
This one is very different than the other ones. Our main character Xu Ziyue dies in a car crash and contracted himself to a Love Attack! Game.
He is transported to a classroom, …and immediately spots an NPC to pursue. In order to romance him, he spends a lot of time with him, teasing him, trying to get him to talk more, and so on, before he realizes that the other players seem to be playing a different game? And his target may be the boss?
This one is about shallow bi boy who dies and signs a contract to be in a romance game. Why? Because it told him that all of the targets were beautiful!
I really like this one so far! Even if there aren’t many chapters yet, the main character’s personality is a breath of fresh air in the horror scenario that everyone else is stuck in and adds some comedy into the scenery. Hopefully it continues~
Maybe convinced you to read some of these, maybe not. Either way, thank you for reading!
