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!”

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.

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 novelhttp://www.jjwxc.net/onebook.php?novelid=3299809
Myanimelisthttps://myanimelist.net/anime/41916/You_Yao

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)

I’m Stanning the Prince

I'm Stanning the Prince

Korean webtoons are all the rage now. I like them because they are colored and are pretty much always optimized for mobile.

I’m Stanning the Prince is a new one that I like.

Summary: Angela’s real person fanfiction about the Prince was a huge hit! Unfortunately for her, a novel like that was considered treasonous. Therefore, she had to go on the run from the royal guards. Fortunately, she was saved by the Prince himself. This is the story of a fangirl heroine and the Prince who doesn’t know how to act around her. As they bicker back and forth, they start growing closer…

Note: “Stan” means an overzealous or obsessive fan. I guess that is what the “stanning” in the title means.

I like it because it’s funny but it could use more action. I’m super envious of the main character who can actually spend time with the object of her worship. The Prince isn’t the usual cold and haughty royal with facial paralysis that you would expect from the description. He’s actually… wait no, that would be a spoiler.

It’s a fun webtoon.

BC Novels’ new website theme is now live!

I’ve changed the look of BCNovels.com. This website is using the WordPress content management system (CMS) which allows me to make a website without messing with coding.

TL;DR – Everything is fine and you shouldn’t see any major change to the website design at all.

Long story:

This year WordPress had released some pretty major updates. Most notably, a brand new “Gutenberg editor” which is, frankly, not my favorite at all. But I’ve gotten used to it.

With these new changes, the old Dara Theme I have been using now lacks certain functionalities and customizing options that I want.

This is the old Dara WordPress Theme I was using.

I’ve chosen the Astra Theme for the new website redesign.

What has remained the same:

  • The overall look, color, and layout.
  • The font style, colors, and sizes.
  • Navigation menu on top.
  • Widgets on the sidebar.
  • The stuff at the bottom of the website.

What has now changed and why:

  • The main content is now more narrow in desktop mode (no change in mobile). I made this change for readability since wider text is harder to read. For example, newspaper text is printed in narrow columns. Ideally, text should be 45 – 75 characters per line. Right now text on BC Novels is 75 characters per line, including spaces.
  • Since the main content area is narrower, the sidebar is now wider. The change is only around 5% of the total width which shouldn’t be noticeable.

Possible future changes: I might make a logo for BC Novels. I think text is probably good enough.

Problem: Uh, the night mode button doesn’t seem to be working right now. I’m trying to fix it.

I hope everyone likes the new look. Thanks for reading.

P.S. I did test on desktop, tablet, and mobile and everything seems fine but do let me know if I’ve broken anything.

I Became the Mother of the Strongest Demon Lord’s 10 Children in Another World

There are only 11 chapters of I Became the Mother of the Strongest Demon Lord’s 10 Children in Another World but I already love it.

Summary: A girl from modern day Japan was summoned to another world to be the mother of the demon king’s children.

This is pure comedy so don’t expect anything other than a few laughs. The art is pretty nice, too. I love the kids! They are so adorable and funny!

I admit that at first I thought that the main character would be annoying since she’s pretty much helpless because, unlike most isekai manga protagonists, she didn’t get any powers or “cheat” skill, but she’s pretty okay. She’s the voice of reason in the demon king’s castle.

It’s a manga that makes me smile when I read it which is always nice.

The manga has been translated into English by fan scanlation group AOC Translations.

Annual Translation Stats (2019)

I don’t know if anyone else is interested in it, but I found this very interesting – https://dreamsofjianghu.ca/2019/11/09/asian-fan-translation-trends-2019/

It’s a data analysis of the translated novels at Novelupdates. Things like, which translation group has the most projects, how many days to finish translating a novel, top publishers, etc.

I particularly love the word cloud that shows which words are the most commonly used in translated titles at Novelupdates.

There is more detailed explanation at the forum here – https://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/novel-updates-analysis-feb-2020.100478/

Chapter 84 – Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Be Trained by Me

Chapter 84 <– click on the link to read it.

Today is the worst time to get sick since the place where I live is under community quarantine because of the Coronavirus but, well, what can I do? I’ve got:

  • a headache
  • the sniffles
  • chest tightness
  • shortness of breath
  • a feeling of weakness

BUT… no fever! No cough!

It’s most likely just the common cold or even allergies(?) since I don’t have a fever. Nothing to be worried about, right?

I hope so.

Today’s chapter should be okay but please let me know if I made any errors since I’m not exactly at the top of my game right now.

Thanks for reading and stay safe, everyone!
