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/

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!

As promised, another Monday, another chapter! This one is an extra about the original novel’s Chu Yu.

I hope to continue with a Monday release schedule for the rest of this month.

My favorite Mo Da Zu Shi song. I think it’s about Lan Wangji’s longing for his beloved.

I also have a favorite fan song for Mo Dao Zu Shi. It’s “My Name is Wei Wuxian.” Uh, warning: Don’t watch it in public since you might burst out laughing. Some suggestive but not explicit images.

Thanks for reading.

Solo Leveling’s Current Story Arc is Amazing

I don’t think I’ve talked about Solo Leveling much but it’s a great webcomic. The art is very dynamic and awesome. The characters are interesting. The story is… well, it’s actually just the standard “weak to strong” story but I like it. It’s the classic noob to hero thing.

You’ve probably already heard about Solo Leveling since it’s quite popular right now.

By the way, Mangadex lost their .org domain. I’m waiting to see if they can get it back before I change all of my old links to the cc domain.

Heaven’s Official Blessing animation trailer!

The original is here – https://www.bilibili.com/bangumi/play/ep291902

I don’t know a lot about Heaven’s Official Blessing since it’s the longest of our dear author’s works and I think I’ve only read 10% of it. I do like what I have read thus far…

But I have been warned that it’s very tragic and intense.

How do you like the trailer? I wish Scum Villain’s trailer was 2D like this. It looks pretty awesome!

What news is there about Heaven’s Official Blessing animation? I’ll try to reply to comments but my internet is being wonky so please forgive me if I seem to be absent for a few days.

Thanks for reading.

Have you read the Witcher novels?

In 2000 or 2001 someone recommended The Witcher by Andrzej Sapkowski. series to me. It had been published in the 80s-90s… but only in Polish. I read some English fan translations and was hooked! It didn’t get an official English translation until 2007.

However, I’m sure most people probably heard of the Witcher video game series first. A lot of people might not even have heard of the books at all. That’s why it’s a bit hard to talk about the Witcher on the internet since 90% of people will talk about the video game instead of the fiction series it’s based on.

The good news is that there is an upcoming The Witcher Netflix series! It’s based on the books, not the video game. I’m cautiously optimistic even though the trailer seems to be taking liberties with the story. For example, the line “I thought you’d have fangs…” is not in character for the books. I guess the TV show adaptation will be dumbing things down for viewers.

I do like the main actor, Henry Cavill, though. I first watched his word on The Tudors. He was excellent. Here’s a video of him in the Tudors:

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs

The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs (aka Otomege Sekai wa Mob ni Kibishii Sekai Desu) is a great novel with a manga adaptation.

The otome game-based manga that I have read all have female main characters but this one has a hilarious trash-talking male MC. I really like him! He’s kind but he’s not a beta male like many Japanese MCs. On the other hand, he’s also not an “edgy isekai MC” who murders people left and right. He’s reasonably logical but funny.

Summary:

Leon, a former Japanese worker, was reincarnated into an “otome game” world, and despaired at how it was a world where females hold dominance over males. It was as if men were just livestock that served as stepping stones for females in this world. The only exceptions were the game’s romantic targets, a group of handsome men led by the crown prince.

In these bizarre circumstances, Leon held one weapon: his knowledge from his previous world, where his brazen sister had forced him to complete this game. This is a story about his adventure to survive and thrive in this world.

It’s Too Hard to Chase the Tsundere Prince

What’s up with the title “It’s Too Hard to Chase the Tsundere Prince”? LOL! I actually started reading this just because of the funny title.

Personally, I would prefer a yandere prince… *cough* I mean I would prefer to read about a yandere prince, not that I want to meet one.

This is just another of those “modern girl transmigrated into (fantasy) ancient China” manhua.

Summary:

This is a story about a murdered lady, who then time travels and is reborn as the second daughter in a wealthy household. She was often bullied in her own household. After time travelling, she acts all frail and weak in the situations she encounters, while intelligently overcoming crisis after crisis. Even without a royal background, she is slowly but surely climbing to the top!

OMG! July Found by Chance is getting a Kdrama?!

It’s real! The news about it and the cast is here – https://www.kpopmap.com/july-found-by-chance-2019-drama-cast-summary/

Release date: Sept.25 2019

I feel that the actors look way too old for the part. I tried to Google the leading lady’s age (Kim HyeYoon) and she is 22 years old. That’s like 6 years too old! The other actors seem to be about the same age. Oh, well, what matters is the acting.

I hope the drama will turn out to be good.

Where can I watch Kdramas in English?

Thanks for reading.
