Enjoy yet another hilarious chapter!

I didn’t have an editor so please let me know if there are any errors by leaving a comment. I hope you like this chapter.

Thank you for reading. 😉 Have fun reading.

Chapter 76.1 – Super exciting news! Free extra chapters for loyal readers

Chapter 76.1 <– click on that link to read chapter 76.1 of The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love.

Important: Read this, please.

I have been greatly disturbed by the plagiarists who copy-paste my work on their website. I will now take some steps to prevent theft of my content. Now, I don’t mean people who just quote a line or two. I’m talking about the people who take whole chapters.


  1. Only the censored versions will be posted on the NU project page.
  2. I will also password protect some of my “special” *cough* content for a few days. Therefore, to read the uncensored versions, you will need the password to get early access.

My reward for loyal readers who read on BCNovels.com:

I greatly appreciate my readers who read my translation on this website. You will all be able to read the uncensored, uncut, harmonious health education chapters at:


You can check it out now to test if you can read that page. I put in some filler text.

Warning: Write down the password somewhere since I will delete this info in two/three days.

I will eventually publish the uncensored chapters for the public (open release, no password) a few days later.

The people who donate will always get early access to the first drafts. No change there.

That’s my plan. Please let me know if any of this will be a problem for you.

Update: password deleted you can message me at NU forums if you need it

Thank you.

Chapter 75.2 – I spy with my little eye …

Chapter 75.2 <— click on the link to read the chapter. Thanks to two anonymous people for their donations.

The true essence of Xiu’s world is a danmei (BL) novel!

*smirks* And no one there has a single clue… I laughed.

I read ahead and there are some smutty chapters. To be honest I was a bit depressed because of the copy-paste websites. I’m honestly tempted to put the smut behind some sort of DRM or password protection but I know a lot of people are reading on their phones. I do want as many people as possible to read my project but I want them to read it here, not on some plagiarist’s website.

It’s just annoying, you know?

Thank you very much for reading this on my website.

Chapter 75.1 – What is the true essence of this world?

Chapter 75.1 <— click on the link to read. Thanks to Kim and Jimbo for your donations.

What is the true essence of this world?

Are we like germs in a petri dish that a higher being is using to experiment ideas on? Did aliens come to Earth and seed it with life? Are we just random particles floating in a void? Who knows?

I definitely don’t know!

Tower of God

Some people have left comments about the “Tower of God” thing. In case you weren’t aware, “Tower of God” (TOG) a very popular Korean webcomic. I’m afraid I don’t recommend that comic since the story has been very static for a long time and no story arcs have really been finished in a satisfying way, but if you are curious, the official translation can be read at webtoons here.

The official summary of the webtoon is totally useless since it doesn’t explain a thing:

“What do you desire? Money and wealth? Honor and pride? Authority and power? Revenge? Or something that transcends them all? Whatever you desire—it’s here.”

The Tower of God supposedly grants whoever climbs it anything they desire. Even if they can’t climb to the absolute top, there are checkpoints that reward climbers with power. The main character is Baam and he is chasing after his friend, Rachel, who preceded him into the tower.

So here we have Du Ze and the others climbing the Tower of God and one of the people in their group is Rachel. I am not sure if this is a reference to the webtoon. 🙂

Thanks for reading.

Embroidered sachets

Last time, Chu Yu mentioned that women were trying to give him embroidered sachets. I think these were Qingyang sachets, also known as “chu chu” hahahahaha!

These are basically handmade cloth sachets that are normally filled with perfume items or traditional Chinese medicine ingredients. Stuff like herbs, cinnabar, realgar and other strongly aromatic TCM ingredients are commonly used.


Today’s chapter was not edited so if you see any errors, please leave a comment.

I love this chapter, it’s sooooo good! I was squee-ing all the way from start to finish because I am just a hopeless fujoshi sometimes. Thanks for reading.

Chapter 72.2 – Merry Christmas

Chapter 72.2 <— click on the link to read it

I’m sorry, there’s no extra chapters for Christmas.

who are you
Xiu: Who are you? Du Ze: I’m Du Ze (a reader).

I’m already translating as fast as I can and I can’t add more chapters. Actually, my editor is on break during the holidays which means that the next few chapters will be unedited. This is, of course, my fault for not being fast enough to stock up chapters for these little breaks, lol. Just blame me for not being some sort of translator robot.

You can help me out if you want by letting me know if there are any errors.

Merry Christmas, everyone! Have a great week.
