Ibuki Satsuki’s Comic Collection

My longtime readers have probably already read about Ibuki Satsuki’s Comic Collection (伊吹五月条漫集) aka Yi Chui Wu Yue Tiao Man Ji. It’s a series of short comics with beautiful art and a touching story set in a war-torn Wuxia/fantasy world.

I’ve got good news! The previous translator stopped translating but now there’s a new translator who is continuing the translation. They just started releasing chapters of the latest arc, “Ripples Of A Butterfly.” It’s the one featuring the Tang clan, most notably the mysterious and handsome Tang Zhu (images below). I heard that he’s a fan favorite.

He’s super hot! I’m not sure what his story is but I’ve been glued to my screen reading the comics and drooling over his hotness *cough* waiting for the next update.

Let me just assure you right now that the characters are almost always 100% clothed. In fact, they tend to wear many layers of clothing and armor. 🙂 The image above is a rare exception.

The newest chapters are here:

Some comments from the Weibo post:

  • Here’s a comparison image of the first trailer and the most recent character design video.
  • It’s so beautiful!
  • Bing-mei has such charming eyeliner under his eyes hahaha!
  • This modeling is much better than the last pv.
  • Great!!! A gentle and soft Shizun!
  • Bing-mei’s eyelashes are so long and thick… I don’t know what to say… Anyway, Teacher Shen, please notice me!!! I want to go to Quiet Peak as a disciple!!! Ah!!! BingQiu!!!
  • This modeling is super good! Greedily seeking a new PV
  • There’s no demon seal on Bingmei’s forehead!

Everyone seems to be excited about the animation. I didn’t see negative comments. Perhaps they got voted down or deleted?

What do you think of the newest teaser vs the old trailer? Have you noticed an improvement?

Thanks for reading.

Scumbag System Animation News!

The Scum Villain animation Weibo posted another trailer. This time it’s just a closer 360 degree look at Shen Qingqiu and Luo Binghe.


As you can see from the new teaser/trailer, the official English title of the animation is “Scumbag System”! I like it! What do you think of the title?

Some people told me they were disappointed by the animation but I like it. I would have preferred traditional animation but this 3D seems okay and I did enjoy the voice acting in the previous trailer.

Do you love it or hate it?

Miss Not-So Sidekick

Here’s another funny manhwa for us readers to enjoy: Miss Not-So Sidekick.

Miss Not-So Sidekick
Miss Not-So Sidekick


It’s the story of a 22-year-old Korean teacher who loved to read to escape her daily stress. One day she woke up to find that she had become Latter Ectrie, a minor character in her favorite novel. Popcorn in hand, her new mission is to spy on the novel’s main character and her three lovestruck suitors.

My thoughts:

I feel like the art is super weird! It took me a couple of chapters before I got used to it.

I thought that I would hate the novel’s story since it’s all about a perfect Mary Sue character with a typical reverse harem of males who are all madly in love with her but Latte’s snarky comments and ogling makes it all fun.

Latte is a delightful main character who is smart, active, and a really funny person. She’s also a fujoshi.

(╯✧ ∇ ✧)╯

The male lead… well, his identity would be a spoiler but I’ll just say here that I think he’s super handsome and funny.

All in all, I’m pretty satisfied with the manhwa. You can read it here:

Chapter 73 – Scum Villain

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

Chapter 73 <— click on the link to read it.

This chapter is actually an “extra” instead of a regular chapter. I’m not sure why it was included as chapter 73 by the author but since it’s what’s in the raws, then it’s what we put as chapter 73.

I mean, I’m sure the author knows best, right?

P.S. Regarding my personal situation, my mom is now at home, recovering from the surgery. Everything will hopefully turn out fine.

Unfortunately, the stress must have lowered my resistance to disease. I’ve come down with pharyngotonsillitis. I’ve got a very sore throat and it’s hard to swallow.

After the doctor told me to say “ahh” and shined a light in my mouth, he sat down and drew a picture of “normal tonsils vs swollen tonsils.” He said that my tonsils were so swollen that there was barely any space left open.

I’ve also got a stuffy nose. This part is actually the worst. I could deal with the sore throat by having a liquid diet (hello, ice cream!) but I really, really need to breathe. It’s kinda a necessity, you know???

I’m currently resting and taking my meds. I should be fine after a week or so.

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.

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!

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.

Eight Million Gods by Wen Spencer

One of the more relatable and entertaining books I have read is “Eight Million Gods” by Wen Spencer.

8 million gods
Eight Million Gods

My Summary:

Nikki, an American currently living in Japan, was writing a book. One ordinary day when she was having lunch with her best friend to talk about how a character had died, she was arrested by the policeman sitting on the next table.


Because the details of the murder in her book-in-progress matched the details of a real-life murder.

What follows next is a supernatural mystery involving kami (Japanese gods/spirits) and youkai (preternatural creatures from Japanese folklore).

I like it a lot and I feel that the male lead is yummy. 😉 The main character is also very likable most of the time.

It’s not the best thing ever written so don’t expect a genius-level story but I think it’s a fun book.

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.
