Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! I hope you’re having a great time today.

Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”

Scumbag System Animation August 8, 2020 Release Date (Possibly)!

Amazing news, everyone:

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

From Twitter

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?

My computer’s internet stopped working

Just an update since I said I would release a chapter today (Monday): My computer’s internet suddenly stopped working. I tried to call my ISP but the line was busy for over 30 minutes.

I hope I can get it fixed!

Status: Waiting for my internet connection to return! I’ll continue working on the next chapters when I get internet. ATM using mobile which is expensive and the screen is too small.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for a speedy return.

Announcement: Where to read the early access chapters

Kind readers, please pray for Du Ze’s little flower that will have to accommodate so many 🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌 bananas.

First draft sneak peek

I have finished the first draft of the first bonus chapter. Those who donated at https://ko-fi.com/bcnovels can already read it now. Those who have donated will get first look at all of the extras.

How it works:

  • Go to http://ko-fi.com/bcnovels and donate any amount.
  • Once you donate you will get an email that will give you the link and the password for the early access chapters. Check your spam folder for the email if you don’t see it in your inbox.



Hmm, the first draft is okay but I feel I should make it better. I will be editing it to make it flow better. It’s pretty difficult to make things sound natural when there’s a lot of  🍌 “action”.

New website for early access chapters

Early access is totally free, you just need to have the password. I posted before that I would put the chapters on Tumblr but it seems that some countries have blocked Tumblr completely.  So I have prepared a different website for the early access chapters. You will need the password that I gave before to view the bonus content.

You can check it out now. Please let me know if there’s any problem. Hopefully, it will work for everyone this time:


I just put some filler text and one image on the webpage for now.

While you are waiting a few days for the release, you can check out this incredible new manga I read: The Story of High School Boys Who Became Magical Girls. The translator just uses imgur since they don’t have a website.

Announcement: Having some computer troubles

I hope everything will be fine. I’m trying to fix it now. Anyway, in case I’m gone for a few days it just means a bit of computer problems. *shudder*

Pray for me!

Edit: Okay, I restarted the computer twice and it seems to be okay now. Just in case there might be more problems later I have scheduled the release for tomorrow. It will be posted even if I am offline at that time. I’m actually still editing the chapter but I scheduled it anyway. Please leave a comment if you find any errors in chapter 93.2.

Edit2: Opened up my desktop and cleaned it. Working okay now. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that there won’t be any more problems.

Announcement – Extras will be posted soon

The story is almost finished, only one chapter and the finale is left!

No more crab issues

After the finale are three bonus extra chapters that you will be able to read here – https://trap-extras.tumblr.com/

To read the bonus content you will need to unlock the blog with the password from here – http://bcnovels.com/free-early-access-chapters-100-guaranteed-no-crab-issues/

I will remove that password soon so make sure you save it somewhere.

Please check if you can access the Tumblr blog right now. There’s only one short post on it but if you can read it, that means everything is working fine and you should also be able to read the extras.

Let me know if there are any problems. Thanks.

If you aren’t able to access the tumblr blog, don’t worry, I will post the chapters without a password later.

Comment here!

Praise me!

Please leave a comment here if you read the latest “special” *cough* chapter.

It’s good to put the comments here since there is no sign-in needed and people can stay anonymous.

So how was the chapter? I, for one, was NOT expecting that at all! I thought the gnome form would be super sweet and nice but I was wrong! So, very, very wrong …

Gnome form Xiu is a dom and Du Ze is a sub.

I never saw that coming. 🍌🍌🍌

Announcement: Chapter 52 will be posted on Ainushi Translations

Important: Chapter 52 by BC Novels will be hosted by Ainushi Translations. I will post the full chapter (not half) tomorrow.

You can find this chapter in our NU project page. Just scroll down, look at the “latest release” section, then navigate until you see “c52” then click on that link.


Uh, remember the last time when I had to get other web hosting for chapter 19? You see, Xiu is really honest and he wants to continue “harmonious health education time” with Du Ze. Chapter 52 showcases Xiu and Du Ze’s love for mutual cultivation.
