The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System

The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System


Can’t I read stallion novels anymore?! [TN: genre with OP protag & harem]

Shen Yuan is reborn into a young man and scum villain destined to die, Shen Qingqiu.

But it must be known that the original Shen Qingqiu was sliced alive by his disciple, Luo Binghe, into a human stick! A human stick!

Shen Qingqiu’s heart was full herd of grass mud horses running full tilt, yet:

“It’s not like I don’t want to hug this main character’s thighs, but who let this fucking man be so black. The revenge that needs to be taken is some thousands of deeds!

Why is all the romance that should be going to the women in the plot imposed on him?

Why as a scum villain, should he still have to block gun and knife for the protagonist and sacrifice himself?

Shen Qingqiu: “…… _(:□)∠)_I think I can still save him one more time.”

He wants to prove – even scum villains can live, and live coolly at that!

It’s also the story of a small white flower who later became a black flower attacking a scholarly, scum villain type.

This is the story of a master and disciple’s everyday unknowing, very strange, dog-blood process of falling in love.

It’s also a scum villain’s firsthand account of the male protagonist turning from a small white sheep into an overbearing black king, sort of story……

  1. Is this finished yet? I’m planning to read it after the reader and protagonist definitely have to be in true love.

    1. Yes, the main story is finished. There are just some extras that haven’t been translated yet. Chapter 81 is the end of the novel. The rest are the extras.

    1. Try The Wife is First – the setting has the added bonus of being one where male wives are a common political move between families and the ML is reborn to right the wrongs done to him and his male wife

    2. Hello!!! First of all. Thank you so much for translate this book into English. You are incredible. Also. I know that the actual novel is complete. But I don’t know if the translated chapters are. Thanks so much again

  2. Is there a way you guys can properly arrange the chapters and extras? I find it confusing to read which is which. And I hope you can gather all the extras in one simple place. Thanks so you much for your efforts!



    1. Madame meiyin is from the succubus extra which I don’t think is on here. It’s translated on tumblr though if you want to read it.

  4. Thanks for your hard work! I am sorry to bother, but do you have a schedule for chapters 86 and 88? Keep up the good work!!

    1. In case you didn’t find them, 86 and 88 are both up but you have to access them from chapters 85 and 87

  5. Ahh finally the chaps of scum villain here …. can’t wait to read one more exciting danmei after mdzs 😋😋😋

    xie xie🙏 for all the crew who made the eng translation so i can enjoy new mindblowing story lines~^^v

  6. Hello, may I try to translate your translation into indonesian? Of course I will credit you and give link to this site

  7. Thank you all so much for all your hard work! I really appreciate that you have translated this.

  8. Hello, I’m a reader who has been following this story for about a year now and it’s great to see it finished! Thanks so much for taking time out of your life to translating Scum Villain’s Self Saving System, Reika. For anyone who is trying to find a good (bl) novel this is one of my first suggestions along with Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation.

    1. Is it finished?! I didn’t start reading it yet just checked today where the trans are 😅

  9. Hi! I’m about to start reading and I’m so excited. Thank you for the work of translating it. I’m very appreciative of your hard work. I do have a question tho: Where is chapter 81? I’m of course not there yet but I see the link isn’t working on it and even when trying to go from chapter 80 to 81, it still isn’t there. No rush. I just wanted to let y’all know. Again, thank you <3 (sorry for bad english)

  10. Hiii!! Someone has been translating your work without permission in my language for a few months now (italian).
    Just thought I should let you know!

    1. Since they didn’t link nor credit you, I thought you’d want to know that’s it

  11. Hi! Can I translate your translation into Italian and post it? Of Course I will credit you.

  12. Umm… just asking… will u be translating the extras too ??? Or only those, who aren’t translated yet ?? I would like to read your translated version though!!!😊

  13. Can I translate your translation into Korean and post it for my Korean friends? Of course I will mention that I translated from your translation

    1. Can I translate this translation to Polish? I’ll credit you and give link to this site. When I tried translating 1st chapter I realised how much time it takes and how some sentences are very hard to translate, so thank you for all the work that you’ve done.

  14. you could translate Transmigrating into a Mob Character to Rehabilitate the Villain Plan,the missing volumes please

    1. It’s still in the spoiler forum but the person who made the extras asked that links to it be removed, except for links in the spoiler forum. So you can still read it from there. Lily has also translated Parts One and Two (out of 6) on her blog.

  15. ❤️❤️❤️ I LOVE IT!!! yes i must scream my heart out for this novel. i just finished reading reader and pro must be in true love. honestly best thing ever! now i’m moving onto this one 😍😍😍

  16. The raws are currently locked but I am keeping the link up since I hope they will get unlocked eventually.

    1. PIKU, thank you for your answer.
      Just solved (kinda) the problem – for some reason, many wordpress sites are blocked in my country, so I had to use a browser addon to “Bypass Internet Censorship” and get access to it.
      ……..and that means I can’t read TSVSSS novel (and many others) from my phone. I’m honestly heartbroken.

    2. Oh, that’s too bad. I didn’t know wordpress sites were blocked anywhere. Most of them are just general, casual blog websites.

  17. There are two fan arts included in deep dream chapter. Can anyone tell me who is the real artist of them? I want to do a repost and see if they are okay with reposting.

  18. This site has one of the best translation work I’ve ever read. Grammar is great and sentences glow together well. You are doing a really good job. I love your stories. Keep the BL coming! 😀

  19. Hello, thank you so much for your translations, I really appreciate the hard work you’re putting into this. Are you considering grouping the chapters into an ebook for easy download? I travel often and would love to have a copy to read when I don’t have access to the internet.

    1. Hi! I think the pinyin for its name in Chinese is Rén zhā fǎnpài zìjiù xìtǒng — I’m not an expert though 🙂

  20. First of all thanks for your hard work, i came here following the scum villiain translation. I have to said that in the begging was very confusing with so many names and stuff and meanings (is the first novel of this kind i read) but you have put a lot of effort to explain all those little details and notes and truly is amazing. Thank you, seriously.

    Second, omg, now i finish the scum villian and my heart was attracted by the other projects do you have and im in dispair because i have to work and i cant do it… i just want to read aaaaah

    But well, thanks again and good luck with everything

    you are a truly hero

  21. Due to the fact that the novel was blocked on the official resource, the question has arisen: do you have all the new raws? (including extras?) Sorry if my English is bad.

  22. I love all the novels of this author, is it possible for you guys to translate Heaven Official’s Blessing? It’s okay if you start at ch 17 🙂 Thank you for your hard work 🌝

    1. Hi, Heaven Official’s Blessing is already being translated by a different group, Sakhyulations. Please don’t ask other translation groups to just randomly pick up novels when it’s clear that the current translators are still working on it diligently. I know we all want to be able to read the novels faster, but doing this is really looking down on translators’ tiring efforts.
      If you can’t stand the slower rate of Sakhyulations, like the other person said, @yummysuika on twitter has a google doc with all the chapters they’ve translated so far. They are an independent translator who updates fairly regularly and quickly.

    2. Thank you 😊 I know they are working hard and I’m very much grateful for them, but I really can’t help myself to read it as much as possible (sorry it’s been a habit of mine that once a story is cliff-hanged I’m much more interested and actually can’t sleep w/o thinking about what will happen in the next chapter) and I’m glad to know that there are independent translators 😊

  23. There is one more extra – Getting married, which I cannot find the full version of. Is it possible to get it? Really looking forward to that one.

    1. Is it safe to assume that tthe updates happens every Monday or is it only for November?

      I hope the translators take some rest as well! Don’t forget to take care of yourselves first!

  24. Hello, I tried to look for a way to contact you guys but I couldn’t seem to find any, so I decided to leave a comment here.
    So I translated one of the extra chapters of this novel for my friend’s birthday and posted it on my Tumblr, and only remembered afterward that you guys have taken up the translation of this novel. I was wondering if you would be fine with me keeping the post up, or would you like me to take it down?

  25. Here’s what I understood : the translator of the team that originally handled this project already began to translate the chapter, but due to health issues they couldn’t finish it in time, so they released the chapter 33 (which was translated by someone else)
    But don’t worry, the translator is currently working on it, so I think chapter 32 will be released asap 🙂
