The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System

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!!!

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.

  1. OMg !! Such a GOod Job Reika sama ! Just a suggestion though…. maybe it will not too confusing to new readers who just click right on the bat if it’s named ” ch1 ver.2 ” ? Thank you as always for the hard work !

  2. Reika, I do not understand your explanation … the two versions will be released and you will not erase anything, right? and the version that is in the one chapter of today is edited and that has more hot scenes? or is it the one with the most censorship?
    Thank you for the translation !!

    1. The old version is still published and it won’t be deleted. The new version is being translated. The new (edited) version has more extra chapters at the end of the story.

    2. Reika,
      thanks for the explanation!
      Super happy with your dedication to providing this to the fans.

  3. Thank you for translating the new version. Looking forward to seeing how it differs from the old version. One of my all time favourites in this genre.

  4. I was planning on re-reading this novel again, so this was actually good timing! 😂

    Thank you for your hard work! 💕

    1. Good thing it didnt, cause i will super be heart broken if it did get deleted. Since i really like the old version. Although i havent read the newly translated new version yet, i’ve got a gut feeling that i will also pretty much fell inlove with the new version too 😍.

      Thank you so much to the translators group that are patiently and hardworkingly translating this. Once i pass the boards and get a stable job i want to donate coffee to the team 😊. Thank you guys especially for reika-san for picking this up 👍👍👍

  5. Thank you so much for starting the retranslation of the earlier chapters, the edited version at that! ♥️🌱 the mvp!!!
