This chapter is a bit bloody

Hey guys, so the gang continue their climb up the Tower of God in this chapter. As you know from the previous chapter, they basically have to kill 72 demons gods. I have to give you fair warning; it will get bloody sometimes. Eek!

I don’t think it’s too bloody though.

Thank you for reading. If you see any errors, please let me know by leaving a comment.

Chapter 67.2 – My other project: School Dungeon manga

Chapter 67.2 <— click on the link to read it. Thanks to Leah and anonymous for their donations.

Check out this manga

I also scanlate the Bokura no Meikyu (Our Labyrinth) manga. It’s about a bunch of students who are trapped inside their school when it suddenly turned into a dungeon. It’s very video game/RPG-like and it’s a comedy.

Chapter 1 is here.

I am looking for someone to help me with this project. I already have the text translation of the next two chapters but I need someone to clean the pages and typeset the text. Typeset the text  means to put the text in the little dialogue bubbles or the background. Cleaning means removing the Japanese text so that the typesetter can put in the English text.

If you are interested in joining, please create an account at NU forums and message me. This is my profile on the forums.

Thank you and have fun this weekend.

It’s super cool

Did you know that I also scanlate manga? It’s true! Check this out: “The hero suddenly proposed to me, but . . .” It’s a romantic comedy based on the light novel with the same title.

the heo suddenly proposed

Summary:  The hero and his party rescued the beautiful princess Louise from the Demon King. The king asked the hero if he wanted anything as his reward. Surely, the brave hero must want the princess to be his wife. As expected, the hero said “I love you” – but to the princess’ Maid A!

Chapter 65.2 – Donate to get early access to chapters!

Chapter 65.2 <— click on the link to read

Donate to get early access to chapters!

I’ve decided to offer my readers early access chapters. It’s basically my version of Patreon.

How it works:

  1. Go to and donate any amount.
  2. Once you donate you will immediately see a thank you message on ko-fi that will give you the link and the password for the early access chapters. Or you will get it as an email.

It’s that easy! The minimum donation amount is $3 on ko-fi but you can donate more than that if you like. One donation gives you one month of early access. The current month is December 10 to January 10. If you donate during that time you will be able to access the Dec-Jan early access chapters. However, please note that the early access chapters are first drafts.

On January 11 a new month starts and I will create a new page for the Jan-Feb early access chapters.

This is currently for The Reader and Protagonist since I don’t have any extra chapters of “Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me.”

This is my first time doing this so if there is any problem, you can leave a comment here or send me a message on NU (registration needed).

~ This is simply to reward the people who donate. I will continue to post daily updates. The early access simply gives people access to 1-3 chapters (first drafts) earlier than the public posts (final, edited version).

Thank you for your support.

Chapter 14 – Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Pick Me Up

Xie Xi: When I grow up I can…?

What exactly was Xie Xi thinking of doing when he grows up?

From the manhua Yi Chui Wu Yue Tiao Man Ji . The scanlators seems to have deleted their website so you can use whichever manga website you like. Batoto link.

Last chapter was hilarious. Spoiler for last chapter:

Rofl, I nearly died laughing when they ran away after they discovered the incense by the demonic cultivators. I was not expecting that. I thought they would try to find the demonic cultivator and rescue the villagers but they immediately flew off to report it to the sect.

I mean, it was the smart thing to do, but how many of main characters of the usual Xianxia CN novels would do that? I have never read of any!

That was very strange, I mean so the whole auction thing was useless since they won’t be finishing the water demon extermination mission? They handed over the mission to the sect master because the demonic cultivators were involved. I guess we will see what will happen in the future chapters.

Thank you for reading.

Chapter 63.2 – I will make you unable to get out of bed

Demon Xiu: I will make you unable to get out of bed

I hope that readers remember the last time that demon form Xiu and Du Ze talked.

Xiu said that line several chapters ago and I have been waiting for it! Too bad there are too many distractions and people popping out. Our two lovebirds haven’t had enough time alone. I wish they were able to have a long honeymoon…

But now Xiu is back in his demon form and we all know that demons are very honest and true to their desires. There’s hope!

Thank you for reading.

Chapter 63.1 – Xiu’s clothes when he transforms

Chapter 63.1 <— click on the link to read it

Someone asked in the comments if Xiu was wearing pants when he transformed

Well, it would be funny if Xiu was going pants-free, wouldn’t it?!

Specifically, they were asking about the gnome -> demon transformation before. How do his clothes still fit after that?

Magic! It’s magic.

In the last few chapters, Xiu transformed from human to beastkin and Du Ze said he was wearing “tribal clothes,” meaning beastkin clothing (I’m guessing fur and leather/animal hides).

Either Xiu has super speed like the Flash and ran off to find clothing and put it on in 0.01 seconds … or it’s magic. Just guessing, but I think it’s magic.

However, when Xiu transformed from undead to gnome, he was still wearing the undead’s robe. If you remember, Du Ze took off his sweater vest and put it on the shota because the gnome form needed clothes.

This is very confusing!

I think generally Xiu’s clothes do not transform. When he transformed into his beastkin form, the beastkin god sacrificed his godhead, therefore it was special. Xiu also leveled up to “false god.” Possibly, Xiu is just massively more powerful now compared to when he was a gnome, and this power now means he can change his clothing magically.

What do you think?
