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!!!

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.
