Here’s a nice little Chinese concept for you: PDA in China
The couple in the comics are “放閃” (literal: put/discharge flash), the word in English is PDA (public display of affection).
“放閃” means a pair of lovers show off with their love or do lovey-dovey thing together in public. Anyone nearby need to wear sunglasses to protect their vision and to prevent blindness from those flashes.
In the last panel, check out the background, there’s a guy there wearing sunglasses! Cute! Source
Having said that, I will most likely release at least one chapter a week or four times a month for Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me and When a Fanfic Protagonist Transmigrated into the Original Novel. Those two are Xianxia so they are not easy to translate.
In particular, the writing style of Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me is the most difficult for me to understand. Therefore, although I consider it to be my main project, I can’t release it faster than that. By the way, for that project I have a translation checker and an editor. This makes releases slower since it goes through a longer process than the other two projects but the quality should be better.
Never Marry a Man With Two Tintins is much easier to translate because of the author’s simple and clear writing style. That will probably have a faster release.
In total, I will most likely be releasing something like 12+ chapters a month since I have so many projects. In case I don’t have enough time, I will prioritize Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me.

I found a great new story: Jellyfish
I didn’t read it before since the summary was weird and I couldn’t understand what the story was really about.
It’s set in modern-day China but with fantasy elements. In the story, supernatural beings as well as human and beast cultivators are encouraged to leave their usual homes (remote mountains and such) to go and live in human society. However, they have to keep their supernatural side secret from the humans. The two main characters are a fox and a jellyfish. Both of them have cultivated enough that they have human forms.
The fox is a third-tier actor who has a chance encounter with the ancient jellyfish while he was on vacation.
It’s a heartwarming and fluffy slice of life story. The setting is really unusual for a BL! I like it a lot.
There aren’t many chapters translated but it’s fine since there are no cliffhangers. It’s slice of life so it’s cheerful and funny most of the time.
The original novel was one of friendship between fellow sect members who grew up together. They became bosom buddies who weathered the vicissitudes of life together until they finally reached the peak of the cultivation world, becoming legends.
However, “rotten women” (fujoshis *cough*) see romance everywhere, even between two straight men who are just close friends. A yaoi fanfiction writer created an H story in which the cold, stolid Zhangsun Zijun became a beastly seme and the hot-tempered, kind Yi Xichen became a frail uke whose flower everyone wanted to pluck.
What happens when the OOC protagonist of a yaoi fanfiction is transmigrated into the original novel?

Last chapter was published at Asian Hobbyist. Why? Uh, because I wanted to and it might help with SEO. It’s just a friendly collaboration. I’m hoping that some of their readers will take a look at this project when they see it on Asian Hobbyist.
In short, I wanted to get the extra exposure.

Chapter 96 <– as usual, click here for the spoof and scroll down for the actual final extra chapter. Thanks to anonymous for their donations.
So this is it, this is the end.
It’s kinda bittersweet for me. I finally finished the entire story and all of the extras so this is my last post about releasing a new chapter of The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love.
I’m extremely happy that I finished it but I also feel a little sad that it’s all over and there are no more new chapters after this.
