BC Novels’ Four-Year Anniversary

This website, BC Novels, started off as a solo project by me, Reika. My first post was on January 1, 2017.

The first translation post was “New project! The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love Chapter 1.1” on August 5, 2017.

Since then more than two dozen editors, beta readers, proofreaders, and fellow translators have joined BC Novels’ projects.

Thank you to all of the people who have helped with all the novels! Thanks to all the readers, too! Without you, BC Novels wouldn’t have lasted this long.

4th year
I wish I could celebrate with a slice of cake!

I hope we all have a great 2021.

Merry Christmas 2020 from BC Novels

happy holidays

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! I hope you’re having a great time today.

“I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Thank you very much for always supporting BC Novels.

Chapter 88 (end) – Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me

Chapter 88 <— click on the link to read it.

Hooray! This project is now completely translated! Today is International Translation Day so it’s good timing, too.

Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me Stats:
  • Start date: August 30, 2017
  • End date: September 30, 2020
  • Project duration: 1127 days (3 years, 1 month)
  • 88 chapters (80 main chapters + 8 extras)
  • That means one chapter was released every 12.8 days

I think that is a pretty decent frequency!

Of course, these last few chapters were all extras. If I were to exclude the extras and consider chapter 80 as the end chapter, then the stats are as follows:
  • Start date: August 30, 2017
  • End date: November 8, 2019
  • Project duration: 800 days (2 years, 2 months, 9 days)
  • 80 chapters (main story)
  • That means one chapter was released every 10 days

Now that this project has ended, I feel happy, proud, and even a little bit melancholy now that it’s all over. It has been a pleasure to work on Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me.

I hope everyone has enjoyed this journey! Thank you very much for accompanying me on this rollercoaster of emotions as we all read how Chu Yu went from a clueless teenager uncertain of himself into a strong and confident young man. Xie Xi went from a (secretly yandere) little flower-like child to… an openly yandere adult. 😀

When I read the early chapters, I’m amazed at how the main characters’ relationship has progressed from childish love x doting older brother into… obsessive lover x doting lover!

Thank you again for reading and let’s read more great stories. I look forward to more exciting projects in the future.

If you haven’t done so yet, please check out my previous project: The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love

Summary: An antifan was transported into the novel he was reading and becomes embroiled in the main character’s affairs.

Why you should read it: 

  • The reader is deaf (this could be the only danmei where there’s a main character with disabilities).
  • The novel’s main character is a shapeshifter with 8 different (and supremely beautiful/sexy) forms.
  • There’s a lot of explicit, rather kinky *cough* scenes which are all different. There’s at least one for every form (human, elf, dragon, angel, demon, beastkin, lich, gnome).
  • Actually a really sweet love story with a happy ending. Edit: based on a comment, I should add that there are some dark moments.
  • Completely translated, no waiting needed!
8 races time
Xiu and his 8 different forms

Review by Reitian: Absolutely amazing. This is exactly what I look for in a novel. Not only did it have a complex and well thought out plot with great pacing, the character development was steady and believable. I loved that the plot actually ventured on a dark path and I enjoyed the grotesque descriptions. There was action. There was adventure. Most importantly, it was consistent. Sometimes I feel like halfway through BL novels (specifically), the author gives up on the plot so the main CP can get together. That doesn’t happen in this story. Everything about it was intense, especially the romance. The attention to detail not only wraps everything up nicely, it weaves and threads the piece together.

News! Scum Villain (Scumbag System) animation release date: Sept. 10, 2020

The Chinese animated adaptation of The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System will be aired on September 10, 2020. By the way, if you come across the word “donghua,” that is just the Chinese word for animation. The donghua is officially titled “Scumbag System” (穿书自救指南) and will be available for free to watch online in the original Chinese with English subtitles at Tencent Video.

Kinda long link here but this is where you should be able to watch it:

You can also view the trailers using that link.

Apparently, it will be ten episodes long which is pretty short. I hope it’s good! I sort of prefer to let episodes pile up then binge-watch it but… who am I kidding? I’ll undoubtedly be too excited to wait!

Chapter 87 – Every Day the Protagonist’s Shizun Is Teased

Chapter 87 <— click on this link to read today’s chapter.

Are You OK – I am obsessed with this Chinese animated series!

Someone recommended this donghua (Chinese animation) to me and now I can’t get enough of it. Despite the serious-sounding summary, it’s mostly comedy. At least, I think it is. Looks like there might be some serious plot stuff later on.

are you ok donghua Title: Are You OK (You Yao)
Based on the novel

Summary: Today, the imperial court is soliciting transmigrators, giving them various positions according to their talents, changing the ancient civilization with modern technology, and trying to create a new world. Zuo Yunqi is just an ordinary young master, mixed with the court in disguise as a spy to save his father. However, he was recognized by one hired specifically to spot such spies, and the two engaged in an epic battle of wits.

Alternate summary:  3d comedy donghua in which transmigrators have started appearing in ancient fantasy China en-masse. They’re being rounded up by the government for their Big Brains™ and given positions of power/money/wealth (source)

Watch it online (free and with English subtitles)

Have you been watching this? What do you think of it?

Thanks for reading.

Mo Dao Zu Shi Chibi Donghua

Hiya fans of The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System! I know a lot of us are also fans of the Mo Dao Zu Shi animation (donghua) and I thought some of you might not yet know that there’s a new chibi animation Mo Da Zu Shi. Each episode is short but cute and everyone is in chibi style!

It’s legally available for free and with English subtitles at We TV. I’m watching it right now! I love it.

Two episodes were released today. Enjoy!

P.S. Do you like the news posts about current and upcoming donghua? Or would you prefer it if I stick to only BC Novels announcements? Please leave a comment if you have an opinion. I’m slightly worried that people don’t like these types of posts.

Thanks for reading.
