Let’s Hide My Younger Brother First Summary
I’m possessing a character in an R-rated BL manhwa. It’s in a world where people, whose craziness ranges from one to ten, appear.
“Franz, can you take off your clothes for a moment?”
“Sister? Wh-Why my clothes?”
Their crazy serenade has already begun. Having been faced with the violence my younger brother had to endure, I made a vow.
“Instead of Franz, I’ll have [Schuette] instead.”
Those people are coming soon. The people who will exterminate my family, and when that’s not enough, they’ll devour my younger brother’s innocence.
“And I’ll become a knight to succeed our family and carry on its legacy.”
If he doesn’t go, I’ll die! That’s how I thoroughly hid my brother and decided attend all the official events myself.
…But something’s wrong.
“I do! I love Kayla Vesta!”
“If Young Miss gets hurt, then I’ll…”
“I don’t feel the need to wait any longer.”
Didn’t you all like men? Why are you all suddenly obsessed with me?
Firstly, the art in Let’s Hide My Younger Brother First is just utterly gorgeous.
I quite like the twisting of the original novel, the author isn’t scared to change things around!
It’s definitely an isekai story, but it feels at least somewhat fresh. The young heir of the male is quite pitiful and sad, which makes for a good enough reason for the female lead to change the story.
Honestly, the original male lead is definitely a typical BL lead. I’m not a huge fan of BL, since it often features some really unhealthy dynamics between the couples.
As most stories, if she does nothing her family will be dying due to some reason or another. I quite like the magical touch of the story, since it makes a lot of sense for them to transfer the protection to the weakest member of the family.
I also really like how the female lead is regretting her past life, especially how she ends up treating her own brother.
It makes a lot of sense for her to re-do her life’s choices in this world, considering her poor choices in the past.
As it seems, the female lead practiced kendo in her past life so she’s a lot more comfortable battling like that. It makes a lot of sense for her to be unused to using a rapier to attack and “proper technique”.
So far I’m honestly feeling quite impressed with the story, although I’m seeing so many comments wishing it was a different genre.
Either they want it to be a BL story or a GL story. Just be happy it’s here, if you want a different story start writing fanfiction.
Apparently the novel is truly messed up, so I suppose we can be expecting that from the manhwa, too!
Final thoughts: Definitely liking the story so far! The female lead reminds me of another story which I can’t remember the name of, sadly.
