What does the adult Xie Xi look like?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Sadly, this story isn’t illustrated but I like to think that he looks a bit like this:

These images are of Tang Zhu from Ibuki Satsuki’s Comic Collection. I don’t know why but I think it’s a bit like Xie Xi.

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

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.

I’m so happy!

That manhua that I like, Miao Shou Xian Dan, has not one, but TWO cute shotas. OMG! I love it. 😀 I really enjoy reading or watching cute things.

miao shota

Oh, what’s this? A shota with red eyes?

Well, you know what sailors say? “Red sky at night, sailors’ delight. Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.”

I’m not yet sure whether the red eyes mean he is someone to squeal over or avoid.

miao master

It’s a (somewhat) foul-mouthed, rude shota! This one seems tsundere or something, hahahahahaha! Cute!

The Story of High School Boys Who Became Magical Girls

I recently discovered this super hilarious manga.

 

magical girls

I read it on its page in Mangadex since it seems the scanlator doesn’t have his own website. Mangadex tends to load slowly for me but it has no ads so I like to use it.

Red Wedding

No, not a red wedding Game of Thrones style. 🙂 Just a traditional Chinese wedding.

How hot do Chu Yu and Xie Xi look in red wedding clothes??? (Don’t know image source.)

I’m sorry for the long wait, this chapter was difficult.

Asian Hobbyist

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 24 – Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Take Care of Me

Today I have partnered with Asian Hobbyist, a friend’s website. They have a lot of stories there, for example this one (Common Sense of a Duke’s Daughter).

Click here for Chapter 24 of Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me.

The Third

Regarding the translation, do you “Third Shidi” is okay? It means the third-ranked fellow disciple under the same master. He has not been given a name. The options are:

Third Brother

Third Shidi

San Shidi

I’ve been using “Shidi” but others do use “brother” since it’s easier to understand For example, that is the term used in the manhua Wo Jia Dashi Xiong Naozi You Keng. Like this example, notice they call one of the characters “Second Brother.”

 

Let me know if you have any preference.

Thanks for reading.

Chapter 22 – Twin brother?!

Chu Yu’s twin?!

By the way, have you ever read Wo Jia Dashi Xiong Naozi You Keng? The story is almost exactly like “Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me” sometimes. Check this out!

It’s uncanny! Similarities:

  • the main character is the Da Shixiong
  • the protagonist is his Shidi
  • first panel – meditating sitting on stone on top of a cliff, just like Chu Yu
  • MC is a trans-dimensional traveler
  • MC’s background is the same as Chu Yu: both parents alive, comes from a good family, good talent, etc.
  • .. and finally, MC’s strategy is hugging the thigh of the protagonist!

Wow! What a coincidence!
