Chapter 96 – The third extra chapter

Chapter 96 <– as usual, click here to read the final extra chapter. Thanks to anonymous for their donations.

So this is it, this is the end.

It’s kinda bittersweet for me. I finally finished the entire story and all of the extras so this is my last post about releasing a new chapter of The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love.

I’m extremely happy that I finished it but I also feel a little sad that it’s all over and there are no more new chapters after this.

Here are two of my favorite images.

I read the manhua and this image is the iconic image of Du Ze and Xiu, IMO.


Thanks for reading.

Chapter 95 <– click here. This chapter is the second extra. There are three extra chapters in total.

Did you like the last chapter?

Here’s a nice picture that I think looks like Du Ze, glasses, earphones, and all. It’s from the anime “Your Lie in April.” The protagonist of that anime, like Du Ze, also has a hearing problem. He’s not deaf, it’s a … no I can’t say because it would be a spoiler. Anyway, the pic is nice and I wanted to share it with you.

I’m just glad that Xiu and Du Ze had a happy ending and we have three epilogue chapters of their life together. Sweet!

Thanks for reading.

Chapter 93.1 – One more to go

When life gives you cliffhangers, make sure you hang in there

rock climbing
Think of it like rock climbing rather than “omg we are about to fall and die”

We were promised a happy ending by the author, so don’t worry too much. It’s not like we readers are hanging at the edge of a cliff by our fingernails, almost about to drop to our deaths… it’s more like an exciting interlude as we are rock-climbing our way up a steep cliff.

I did cry buckets of tears though. Get ready with some tissues..

My face when there’s a horrible cliffhanger that makes your heart ache

Thanks for your patience.

Chapter 92.4 – Is the new table of contents okay?

Chapter 92.4 <— please click on this link if you are a bot or if you want to read the parody chapter. Please scroll down to the very bottom of this post to read the regular chapter. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I hope no one missed the previous “Special Extra Chapter” titled “Gorgeous Eight Races Black Bellied Yandere Protagonist Chases After His Silly, Cute Otaku Consort” – Chapter 78: Eight Races Tonight: The Sly, Shapeshifter Tyrant God Pampers and Spoils His Adorable Little Consort.

The Table of Contents has been updated

I added tabs to the Table of Contents since the list of chapters was kinda super long. Is it okay? I’m worried it’s not user-friendly for people who are using their phones.

Let me know if you think the old TOC was better. I can easily revert it to the old, plain format.

Chapter 92.3 – Everybody loves parodies, right?

Parody = 💖

Everybody loves parodies, right? It’s always good for a laugh.

My two favorite parody stories are:

My Disciple Died Yet Again

The Strongest System

They are both funny stories with cool main characters. Don’t take it too seriously, both can be dumb but they are always fun.

I don’t know the image source.

Chapter 92.2 – Do you like male yandere characters?

Do you like male yandere characters?

If so, have you read my manga project? It’s called “The hero suddenly proposed to me, but…”

Title: 勇者様にいきなり求婚されたのですが (Yuusha-sama ni Ikinari Kyuukonsareta no Desu ga)
by Togashi Seiya (富樫聖夜) and Watanabe Una (渡辺うな)

Summary: Greed is a super powerful hero who saved the princess who had been kidnapped by the demon king. The princess’ grateful father asked Greed what he wanted as a reward for his valor. Greed said “All I want is this kingdom’s fairest flower.” Everyone in the audience was thrilled, thinking that there was going to be a royal wedding soon. Then Greed proposed … not to the princess, but to the princess’ maid!

Project page: The hero suddenly proposed to me, but (manga)

There is also a light novel translation of it.

Here is a sample page.

Thanks for reading.

Chapter 92.1 – Awesome!

Do you guys rec this story?

I noticed that some people are recommending certain novels. Do you guys ever rec “The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love”? I hardly see people (who aren’t me) mention this story.

I’m a little worried that when the project is complete, no one will read it anymore since it won’t ever be on the front page of NU.

~ Sigh…

Chapter 91.3 – Kubera

Chapter 91.3 The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love <— click on the link to read it

I posted a double release today because I have something important to do tomorrow. There might be a short delay of a few days before I post the next chapter.

Kubera Webtoon

I have been reading the Kubera webtoon by Currygom. The official English version is available for free.


When I first read Season 1 I was blown away by the deep, immersive story and epic plot. The cast is huge and the setting is very interesting. Even the minor characters are cool! Season Two was also great but I started getting kinda impatient.

Have you read Noblesse? It’s kinda like that for me. Both webtoons are great but now they are really running pretty long…

IMO, no matter how good a story is, it should have a clear beginning, middle, and end. I’m not a fan of endless comics like Western ones (Batman, Spiderman, etc).

What worries me is that Kubera is already in its third season and it looks like it might go on for a very long time. I mean, is this going to go on for 5 more years? Gaaaah!

Well, my worries aside, Kubera is a great webcomic. I love the main character, Leez, and Yuta. Have you read it? Let me know what you think. 🙂

Thanks for reading.

Chapter 91.2 – I love chibi artwork

Chapter 91.2 The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love <— click on the link to read it. Thanks to Kit and anonymous for the donations.

Cute Chibi Artwork

chibi artwork

It seems that embedding the artwork is not allowed so I have placed only a small preview of the image from the artist’s page. You can view the big version here. The same artist also has a lot more fanart here.

Chibis are so cute! I wish there was more of chibi Du Ze with chibi Xiu and their chibi pets. 😀

In other news, I came across this animation which is supposedly “The Founder of Diabolism” but when will it be out?

I’m not sure if I want to watch it since I suspect it won’t even be BL at all because of China’s censorship. I’m guessing 🦀 Mr. Crab will be all over it. One can hope, though!
