I’m actually super busy in real life right now and only had like 4 hours of sleep. My mother’s kidney was saved since they were able to do a partial nephrectomy.

I’m still going back and forth between the hospital, home, and various other places running errands, etc.

bc novels

I was so busy that I still haven’t been able to watch Game of Thrones even though I was really looking forward to it. No spoilers, please!

I’ve been consoling myself by listening to Sigur Ros’ version of “Rains of Castamere.”

Thank goodness I was able to find time to post today’s chapter. Enjoy!

Thanks for reading.

What happened to th Scum Villain animation?

Please let me know if there’s been any further news! I’m super interested in it.

I know the 3D animation wasn’t what many people would have preferred. I personally would have liked traditional 2D better but I’ll take whatever I can get. I did enjoy the voice acting very much. The sect uniform was also great!

I ♂ Took A Trip to an Otome Game

This… this manga is hilarious!


Otonari Otoya is an ordinary guy who always dreamed of transmigrating into a video game. His wish came true when he accidentally clicked on an ad. However, instead of transmigrating into an RPG like he wanted, he was transported into the world of an otome game. This world was full of bishes and ikemen who all treated him like the (female) main character!

It’s pure comedy. There’s no romance. Only one chapter has been translated by Puni Translations but it’s quite funny.

Read it here –

To Be a Power in the Shadows!

If you aren’t reading “To Be a Power in the Shadows!” then you’re really missing out! The English translation is here:


A hilarious story about a man who is deeply in love with the idea of becoming a power in the shadows. After hiding his strength and living the mediocre life of a mob character by day while undergoing frenzied training by night, he finally reincarnates into a different world and gains ultimate power.

The young man who is only playing at being a power in the shadows, his misunderstanding subordinates, and a giant organization in the shadows that gets trampled…..

This is the story of a young boy who had adored powers in shadows possibly eventually reigning over the world of shadows in another world.

This is a comedic story so don’t take the tags too seriously. They all apply, but mostly in comedic ways only.

There is also a manga here – – but the novel is better, IMO.

Thanks for reading.

Chapter 69 <— direct link

I’ve removed the link shortener since I don’t think it’s working properly.

Sorry about that.

Please read the novel at bcnovels 𝒹❁𝓉 𝒸♡𝓂

It seems to work for other translators but in my case it seems I don’t get enough clicks. I think the others only use the link shortener (no direct links) but I don’t want to force people to use it so it’s a no go for me.

Thanks for reading.

I can’t believe someone is actually translating the Hualong webcomic! I haven’t actually read it because I’m told that the story is super bad but the covers are super spicy so they have been shared here and there by yaoi fans. I was always curious about it. Check out the cover of chapter 3!

Official translation –

Fan translation –

I can’t even post the cover here because it’s too much, lol. Here’s a more “normal” cover.

Sadly, someone told me that the story is actually really bad but the art is pretty good so it’s worth a look.

Summary: In his past life he spent thousands of years cultivating from a carp into a dragon. However, he was betrayed and died gruesomely. In this life, he plans to pay back his enemies a thousandfold… but it seems there’s someone else pulling the strings from behind the scenes.

Thanks for reading.

Daughter of the Emperor (Webcomic)

Please send help, I can’t stop myself from reading trashy webcomics!

I have this horrible habit of picking up webcomics with pretty art even if the story is dumb, lol.

Anyway, my latest vice has been “Daughter of the Emperor” by Rino, Yunsul, also known as:

  • Emperor’s Only Daughter
  • Koutei no Hitori Musume
  • 皇帝の一人娘
  • 皇帝的独生女
  • 황제의 외동딸

Summary: A deliciously handsome but evil Emperor decides NOT to kill his baby daughter. This is big because he’s killed all his other children and their mothers, too. Suddenly, this bloodthirsty warrior decides to excessively dote on his only child.

The current chapters are very slice-of-life but I have heard that the last part has some plot and drama but with a happy ending.

The story makes absolutely no sense whatsoever but the art is to die for. I love the blinged-out jewelry and pimped-out dresses. I honestly would never read it if it wasn’t for the art and the fanservice when the emperor is shown wearing only a towel and dripping wet from his bath. (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ

There’s mostly just one important female character (the titular Emperor’s daughter) surrounded by a number of handsome ikemen + cute shotas.

I’m not sure I can recommend this since I feel it’s not that good. However, if you like the art then why not give it a try? The first few chapters are free to read.

The official English translation can be found at Tappytoon. It’s not free. The official one is much better and it’s best to support the artist and author but if you really don’t have money then you can read the fan translation for free.

Thanks for reading.

Reverse Harem Manga

Have you read Classi9? It’s pretty weird but fun.

Summary: After being accepted by the Melite Conservatory of Music, Taki Ren, travels all the way to the City of Music, Vienna, to fulfill her dream of becoming a composer. However, there’s one problem: Melite is an all-boy’s school! Her classmates are all musical geniuses, but they also come with problems!

The manga is comedy so don’t expect any real plot.It’s just for laughs.

The characters are all real musicians, but reimagined as bishonen/ikemen. Of course, it’s not historically accurate but the mangaka did take pains to give them actual known eccentric personality traits.

I recommend this if you like:

  • reverse harems
  • music
  • pretty boys

It’s been completely translated but beware that there is no real ending since it seems that the manga was abruptly canceled. Thus, the ending is very open.

Fixitinposttat Scans has downloads if you prefer that or you can view it online.

Sumbag System Animation

I found some info about the animation! Douban, which is like the IMDB of China, has some basic information about it.

Check it out! Three things caught my eye:

Douban Page
  • The release date is shown as 2020. I’ve no idea if this is accurate or not.
  • 人渣反派自救系统 is the title of the web novel but the animation’s title is 穿书自救指南 which is something like Survivor’s Guide to Novel Transmigration. Thanks to the folks at NU forums for their suggestions on how to translate the title.
  • There seems to be an official English title?! How did I not know this? It’s Scumbag System.” I like it. It’s interesting and easy to say.

If you have any news about the animation, do share! You can leave a comment below but note that links are not allowed in comments, sorry.

Have a great day and thanks for reading.

Fresh Scum Villain Memes!

The Scum Villain donghua PV has inspired a lot of fan artists. Here are two memes that I particularly enjoyed.

Shut up and take my money! For reals, I would love to look as great as Shizun when I’m in my 50s.

Okay, I know he looks young because of his cultivation but I’d still love to know his skincare regimen. What shampoo does he use?

Scum Villain as a video game! The images are bit small since I embedded them but you can just click on it and you’ll be able to see the larger version of the image on Twitter.

Thanks for reading.
