Scumbag System Season 2 Confirmed!
Season 2 of Scumbag System (穿书自救指南), the official animated adaptation of The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System (人渣反派自救系统) has been announced on the official weibo. It will be released next year, 2021. No other details have been given.
In case you haven’t watched Season 1 yet, here is where you can watch it on the official channels:
Hooray! This project is now completely translated! Today is International Translation Day so it’s good timing, too.
Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me Stats:
Start date: August 30, 2017
End date: September 30, 2020
Project duration: 1127 days (3 years, 1 month)
88 chapters (80 main chapters + 8 extras)
That means one chapter was released every 12.8 days
I think that is a pretty decent frequency!
Of course, these last few chapters were all extras. If I were to exclude the extras and consider chapter 80 as the end chapter, then the stats are as follows:
Start date: August 30, 2017
End date: November 8, 2019
Project duration: 800 days (2 years, 2 months, 9 days)
80 chapters (main story)
That means one chapter was released every 10 days
Now that this project has ended, I feel happy, proud, and even a little bit melancholy now that it’s all over. It has been a pleasure to work on Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me.
I hope everyone has enjoyed this journey! Thank you very much for accompanying me on this rollercoaster of emotions as we all read how Chu Yu went from a clueless teenager uncertain of himself into a strong and confident young man. Xie Xi went from a (secretly yandere) little flower-like child to… an openly yandere adult. 😀
When I read the early chapters, I’m amazed at how the main characters’ relationship has progressed from childish love x doting older brother into… obsessive lover x doting lover!
Thank you again for reading and let’s read more great stories. I look forward to more exciting projects in the future.
Summary: An antifan was transported into the novel he was reading and becomes embroiled in the main character’s affairs.
Why you should read it:
The reader is deaf (this could be the only danmei where there’s a main character with disabilities).
The novel’s main character is a shapeshifter with 8 different (and supremely beautiful/sexy) forms.
There’s a lot of explicit, rather kinky *cough* scenes which are all different. There’s at least one for every form (human, elf, dragon, angel, demon, beastkin, lich, gnome).
Actually a really sweet love story with a happy ending. Edit: based on a comment, I should add that there are some dark moments.
Completely translated, no waiting needed!
Review by Reitian: Absolutely amazing. This is exactly what I look for in a novel. Not only did it have a complex and well thought out plot with great pacing, the character development was steady and believable. I loved that the plot actually ventured on a dark path and I enjoyed the grotesque descriptions. There was action. There was adventure. Most importantly, it was consistent. Sometimes I feel like halfway through BL novels (specifically), the author gives up on the plot so the main CP can get together. That doesn’t happen in this story. Everything about it was intense, especially the romance. The attention to detail not only wraps everything up nicely, it weaves and threads the piece together.
The Chinese animated adaptation of The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System will be aired on September 10, 2020. By the way, if you come across the word “donghua,” that is just the Chinese word for animation. The donghua is officially titled “Scumbag System” (穿书自救指南) and will be available for free to watch online in the original Chinese with English subtitles at Tencent Video.
Kinda long link here but this is where you should be able to watch it:
Apparently, it will be ten episodes long which is pretty short. I hope it’s good! I sort of prefer to let episodes pile up then binge-watch it but… who am I kidding? I’ll undoubtedly be too excited to wait!

Are You OK – I am obsessed with this Chinese animated series!
Someone recommended this donghua (Chinese animation) to me and now I can’t get enough of it. Despite the serious-sounding summary, it’s mostly comedy. At least, I think it is. Looks like there might be some serious plot stuff later on.
Summary: Today, the imperial court is soliciting transmigrators, giving them various positions according to their talents, changing the ancient civilization with modern technology, and trying to create a new world. Zuo Yunqi is just an ordinary young master, mixed with the court in disguise as a spy to save his father. However, he was recognized by one hired specifically to spot such spies, and the two engaged in an epic battle of wits.
Alternate summary: 3d comedy donghua in which transmigrators have started appearing in ancient fantasy China en-masse. They’re being rounded up by the government for their Big Brains™ and given positions of power/money/wealth (source)
Hiya fans of The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System! I know a lot of us are also fans of the Mo Dao Zu Shi animation (donghua) and I thought some of you might not yet know that there’s a new chibi animation Mo Da Zu Shi. Each episode is short but cute and everyone is in chibi style!
P.S. Do you like the news posts about current and upcoming donghua? Or would you prefer it if I stick to only BC Novels announcements? Please leave a comment if you have an opinion. I’m slightly worried that people don’t like these types of posts.
Pretty big surprise here. There’s an event on weibo right now where you can vote 1 of several Tencent Summer donghua to air their first episode on 8/8. Included in the list are The King’s Avatar #全职高手 season 2, A Will Eternal #一念永恒 and Scumbag System #穿书自救指南
The event is hosted on Weibo here. I personally don’t have a Weibo account but I it looks like The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System’s animation… might win. Or not. It’s an ongoing contest. Even if Scumbag System doesn’t win, we should still get something on August 8.
By the way, I anticipate that people will want to discuss this, maybe even discuss it live. I don’t have a discord but I did make a new Reddit forum (subreddit) for the animation fans here – https://www.reddit.com/r/ScumbagSystem/
Please do join me if you use Reddit!
Thanks for reading.
P.S. Does anyone know where/how we can watch donghua online?
Summary: Angela’s real person fanfiction about the Prince was a huge hit! Unfortunately for her, a novel like that was considered treasonous. Therefore, she had to go on the run from the royal guards. Fortunately, she was saved by the Prince himself. This is the story of a fangirl heroine and the Prince who doesn’t know how to act around her. As they bicker back and forth, they start growing closer…
Note: “Stan” means an overzealous or obsessive fan. I guess that is what the “stanning” in the title means.
I like it because it’s funny but it could use more action. I’m super envious of the main character who can actually spend time with the object of her worship. The Prince isn’t the usual cold and haughty royal with facial paralysis that you would expect from the description. He’s actually… wait no, that would be a spoiler.
I’ve changed the look of BCNovels.com. This website is using the WordPress content management system (CMS) which allows me to make a website without messing with coding.
TL;DR – Everything is fine and you shouldn’t see any major change to the website design at all.
This year WordPress had released some pretty major updates. Most notably, a brand new “Gutenberg editor” which is, frankly, not my favorite at all. But I’ve gotten used to it.
With these new changes, the old Dara Theme I have been using now lacks certain functionalities and customizing options that I want.
I’ve chosen the Astra Theme for the new website redesign.
What has remained the same:
The overall look, color, and layout.
The font style, colors, and sizes.
Navigation menu on top.
Widgets on the sidebar.
The stuff at the bottom of the website.
What has now changed and why:
The main content is now more narrow in desktop mode (no change in mobile). I made this change for readability since wider text is harder to read. For example, newspaper text is printed in narrow columns. Ideally, text should be 45 – 75 characters per line. Right now text on BC Novels is 75 characters per line, including spaces.
Since the main content area is narrower, the sidebar is now wider. The change is only around 5% of the total width which shouldn’t be noticeable.
Possible future changes: I might make a logo for BC Novels. I think text is probably good enough.
Problem: Uh, the night mode button doesn’t seem to be working right now. I’m trying to fix it.
I hope everyone likes the new look. Thanks for reading.
P.S. I did test on desktop, tablet, and mobile and everything seems fine but do let me know if I’ve broken anything.
