Chapter 34 ended in a cliffhanger but worry not! Now that chapter 35 has been released, readers can find out what happened next.
The translators, checkers, and editors are working on more chapters. We’ve been working hard and hope to release up to chapter 40 this month.
It might take a few minutes for this release to appear in Novelupdates. If you are not familiar with Novelupdates, it is an index site that lists a lot of translation releases. The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System has a project page there.
This chapter was translated by Scriptor (the original translator) and Wenq.
The next few chapters are going to be translated by a few different translators working together along with quite a few editors. We are currently aiming for a weekly release schedule so that no one will get overworked. All future releases will now be on BC Novels.
Thank you for your support.
I also want to make a sort of “everything related to The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System” page with lots of fanart, fan comics, fan fiction, etc. but that is a low priority for now as I focus on the chapter releases.
There are tons of great fan art. Here’s one that I thought was of Shen Qingqiu:
Looks like it’s from a video game but I have no idea which. It kinda looks like SQQ.
I’ve taken over this project. No release schedule yet since I am looking for more people to join. Hopefully, I can find co-translators, translation checkers, and editors.
Once things settle down, I will try for a weekly release schedule.
When I start a project, it takes a bit of time to get everything up and going. Ideally, chapters are done this way:
My first draft
Sent to translation checker
My second draft
Sent to editor
My third draft
Final check by editor, checker, and me
My final version
As you can imagine, this takes a bit of time. However, if there is no one to help, I will simply solo the entire thing. Weekly should be doable either solo or with a small team. If more translators volunteer to help out then we can release more.
Things should settle down by next month.
The image above is a fanart of Shen Qingqiu but I don’t know the original source. I like it since most fanarts don’t show action like this one.
I have been releasing one chapter every week but I mentioned before that the chapters are longer now. This might cause a bit of a delay sometimes but don’t be alarmed. Everything is fine and I am working at the same speed as always. It’s just that the chapters are longer… but I am still releasing the same word length per month as before.
Hopefully, I can adjust and continue to release weekly!
My Phoenix’s On Top
I’ve been reading this weirdly titled manhua, My Phoenix’s On Top. Special advisory: There is no phoenix seme (on top) in the manga. It’s not BL. Imagine my disappointment!
It’s usual isekai type: Unlucky girl from the modern time goes to another world, unexpectedly receives an incredible power, and capturing the crown princes from four countries’ heart, all the way to become the imperial harem’s lord?
Only seven chapters have been translated but it seems promising.
