The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System

Chapter 60 – Scum Villain

Big news!!!

The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System Animation Teaser is here!

Note that it’s 3D. Please kinda lower your expectations a little bit. I’m not saying it’s bad though.

Here it is –

It’s so exciting! By the way, before you ask, I have no idea when the Scum Villain animation will be released.

Thanks for reading.




It’s okay though… I feel it’s acceptable quality enough for me to watch. Just don’t expect too much. 😀

Xizhi Lang = Zhuzhi-Lang = 🐍

Is it strange that Shen Qingqiu has a cute nickname for Zhuzhi-Lang? I don’t remember him changing anyone else’s name like that.

I’m pretty sure this is what people are supposed to think of when Shen Qingqiu calls Zhuzhi-Lang “Xizhi Lang.”

Yummy jelly cups that kids love! LOL, I wonder if Shen Qingqiu was hungry when he renamed Zhuzhi-Lang?

Anyway, Shen Qingqiu’s biggest snake demon fan has gotten some love from fans on Twitter. Here’s a nice fanart of Zhuzhi-Lang.

What do you think of Zhuzhi-Lang so far?

Thanks for reading!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all! Time to binge on chocolate.

Valentine’s Day is a special time when you can forget your diet and treat yourself to a few sweet things. My personal favorite is chocolate.

Godiva chocolates

You know what’s even better than eating chocolate on Valentine’s Day?

Buying Valentine’s Day chocolates at a HUGE discount after February 14! The box above is from Godiva. One year when I had some extra money, I checked out their website and got a “buy one get one” deal on these boxes. Of course, I didn’t eat all of the chocolates. I gave most of them away as Post-Valentine’s Day gifts.

I thought this would also apply to flowers but the ones I checked seem to have sold out their stock since they didn’t have any post-Valentine’s Day sales at all.

This year I’m too broke to buy expensive treats but I can still buy something cheap to enjoy. 🙂

Have a great Valentine’s Day!

Scum Villain Wiki – Contributors Needed

Hello, everyone! I’ve been told that the Scum Villain Wiki needs some love. You can head on over to the wiki and start editing or contributing stuff whenever you want.

I know that people have been asking what happened to the promised donghua (animation) of Scum Villain but I haven’t heard anything about it except for the fact that it’s supposedly being created.

Rumors about the donghua include:

  • it will be aired in 2019
  • 2019 is a no go and it’s been delayed to 2020
  • unlike the Mo Dao Zu Shi animation, Scum Villain is 3D animated
  • Shen Qingqiu’s robe will be blue, not green
  • Luo Binghe’s hair will be straight, not fluffy
  • either SQQ or LBH’s character design is a twink
  • literally “no homo” (it’s all “close friendship”)
  • … etc.

But I honestly have no idea whatsoever.

Have you checked out my new project?

I got interested in a short story (16 chapters only) and decided to make it my newest project. I’ll only work on it in my spare time.

I Can’t Write Any ‘Below the Neck’ Love Scenes

My summary:

Ye Ming, extremely frustrated at his latest chapters being locked whenever he wrote any scenes that went below the neck, was shocked when his draft started writing itself.

A strange pop-up box appeared and, in a rage, Ye Ming impulsively decided to enter the world of the novel he was writing.

Chapter 1 – Scum Villain

Chapter 1 <— click on the link to read it.

No, it’s not a typo! This is really chapter 1. It has been retranslated.

To explain why, it’s necessary to explain the status of The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System (人渣反派自救系统).

Scum Villain is the author’s ( 墨香铜臭 aka Mò Xiāng Tóngxiù or MXTX) first novel. There are currently two versions: the original and the edited one.

Scriptor’s translation at Cnoveluv used the original but BC Novels uses the edited one. Thus, Fae has kindly stepped forward to offer to retranslate the earlier chapters, this time using the latest, edited version of the novel.

TL;DR – There are two versions of the novel so it’s double the fun.

Thanks for reading!

P.S. The edited version has more extras 🍌🍌🍌, that’s why I picked it!!!

bc novels

According to Fae:

The plot doesn’t change, but the revised version is great from a literary standpoint — MXTX really polished up her writing with them: more foreshadowing, irony, gutpunchy details and stronger characterization. Sometimes even additional dialogue and scenes. I always recommend reading the revised version if possible, but with the JJWXC raws now down, I thought it’d be good to bring what we can to EN fandom too.

That little sheep

Fanart by @Darldnife

You know how Shen Qingqiu likes to call Luo Binghe a sheep? It’s because his hair is fluffy!

I’m kidding…

It’s probably because he has sheep-like characteristics, like being cute and dressed in white while following Shen Qingqiu around. Maybe it’s just me but it kinda makes me think of the whole “wolf in sheep’s clothing” thing, too.

Anyway, above is a fanart of chibiSQQ with his iconic fan and sheepLBH yelling “Shizun! Shizun!” like he often does.

You can view the artist’s original tweet here. Aw, I wanna pet the cute little sheep!

Thanks for reading.

Snakes 🐍🐍🐍

Nice fanart below:


People have been asking on Twitter about Zhuzhi-lang’s mother and father. Mostly stuff like “did she really do it with a snake?”

My thoughts: Yes, yes she did!

Did you know that snakes have two *cough*?

I wish there was a much more detailed description of Zhuzhi-lang but we do know that he is good-looking and that his eyes are clear and bright like a calm lake. 🙂

Zhuzhi-lang is one of my favorite characters so I’m glad he’s finally made his second appearance!

Thanks for reading.

Another year of website hosting is now paid for

Thanks to everyone who donated via Ko-Fi and those who joined my Patreon. I was finally able to pay the website hosting bill! Now I can relax since it’s now paid for until February next year.

Thanks for the coffee/ko-fi and support at Patreon!

Last month this website had 665, 455 views. The new (more expensive) website hosting plan should be enough to handle that.

Please let me know if you encounter any website errors or downtime.
