BC Novels’ Four-Year Anniversary

This website, BC Novels, started off as a solo project by me, Reika. My first post was on January 1, 2017.

The first translation post was “New project! The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love Chapter 1.1” on August 5, 2017.

Since then more than two dozen editors, beta readers, proofreaders, and fellow translators have joined BC Novels’ projects.

Thank you to all of the people who have helped with all the novels! Thanks to all the readers, too! Without you, BC Novels wouldn’t have lasted this long.

4th year
I wish I could celebrate with a slice of cake!

I hope we all have a great 2021.

I’m okay! I was sick for a few days but I recovered. To be honest, I was pretty panicked for a time since there’s a pandemic. I hope I won’t get sick again. Thanks for everyone’s good wishes. Please stay safe, everyone!

Imperial Edict (Completely Translated)


In Xia Kingdom, the general’s granddaughter, Situ Xiu, wasn’t only weak and cowardly but she is also a stutterer! One day, her younger twin brother decided to run away on a whim. The emperor, not knowing the situation, issued an imperial edict sending her twin brother to the frontline of the war!

Shenanigans ensue when Situ Xiu must crossdress to take her brother’s place as the young general. She’s forced to lead the army against the Cha kingdom’s God of War, who is a total hottie with heterochromia.

The manhua’s 52 chapters have been completely fan translated and you can read it at –

I really enjoyed the story which is quite funny. The art is nice, with a sort of soft and clean look. Imperial Edict is a fun, medium-length read that doesn’t get boring and has a satisfying ending.

Thanks for reading.

Nise no Chigiri manga

Based on the otome (romance visual novel game) of the same name, the Nise no Chigiri manga has been completely scanlated in English by fans. It has 19 chapters which is a good length – not too short, not too long.

The art is pretty good and I like the male “targets.” It’s a reverse harem manga full of bishonen and ikemen, what’s not to like?

Of course, since this is the manga adaptation, not the game itself, only one route is explored. You’d have to play the game to get all the stories of all the possible romance routes.

The manga’s route is the romance with the most hot-blooded of the guys which is fine… but my personal favorite is the male yandere one. *cough* I love male yanderes only in stories, not in real life. *cough*

This is the game opening.


Mana is an ordinary high school student who somehow travels through time to the Sengoku Jidai (Warring States) period, and encounters Uesugi Masatora, one of the generals. He decides to protect her, while his rival Takeda Shingen targets her. With Mana knowing the outcome of this war, will she change the future?

8 Bit Theater

I’ve talked about manga, manhwa, and manhua but I’ve not mentioned my all-time favorite webcomic series – 8 Bit Theater.

It’s a sprite comic using the two-dimensional character art from the video game Final Fantasy. Therefore, it looks very retro. It’s not the art that’s amazing, it’s the writing.

The story: Four Light Warriors embark on a quest to defeat Chaos.


  • Black Mage — A wizard specializing in black magic with a sharp tongue who makes no apologies for being evil.
  • Fighter — A matchless warrior who likes swords. Naive and childish.
  • Thief — A greedy elf prince who uses his smarts to scam everyone.
  • Red Mage — He thinks that their world is a tabletop game and he’s playing a (cheaty) min-max build.

My favorite quote:

Black Mage: Know this. There is a Hell, And when you are there I shall visit upon you such dark horrors as their names cannot be spoken.
Red Mage: You need more stickers.1
Black Mage: We are so far beyond stickers.
Red Mage: Stickers increase your max speed.
Black Mage: Tell me more.

BC Novels translation

Christmas is fast approaching but I haven’t bought any gifts or prepared anything. I’ll just have to wing it when the time comes.

Anyway, I guess we will just be having a very simple holiday celebration. I plan to just stay at home with my family and have a nice dinner.

I’m still on a diet, lol!

Thanks for reading.

Master Drifting Away Again aka My Master Disconnected Yet Again

My Master Disconnected Yet Again is the novel title. The manga adaptation’s title is Master Drifting Away Again.

This is one of the funniest Chinese Xianxia novels with a female protagonist I have read. The other one is My Disciple Died Yet Again by the same author.

The novel and manhua are comedic but there are some very nice story arcs and interesting minor characters. The art is okay, too. 🙂 At first, it was hard for me to adjust to the character design since I had pictured the novel characters in a different way but now I’m used to the art.


One day, Shen Ying, a foodie with no sense of direction from the modern world, transmigrated into a world of spirits and immortals. Every day is a struggle for survival where the strong prey upon the weak but the gods and devils can’t bully the extremely overpowered Shen Ying whose only goal is to eat well and loaf around all day.

Scum Villain aka Scumbag System new trailer!!!!

Wow, so exciting!

What do you think? I still don’t know if there is any concrete release date for this. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the story isn’t too distorted.

Inso’s Law

Have you read “Inso’s Law”? It’s a Korean manhwa about a girl whose life suddenly turned into a web novel. The title, “Inso’s Law” refers to the usual shoujo rom-com cliches aka “the web novel laws.”

For example, even though some people have strange hair colors, it’s treated as normal.

I’m not sure where this story is going but it did start of strong so I am hoping that it won’t devolve into exactly the same shoujo rom-com cliches that it seems to be parodying. I’ll just keep my expectation low!

Scum Villain Manhua (web comic)

The Scum Villain manhua (Chinese comic) has just been released. It’s apparently on the Tencent comics app.

Manhua English translation –

It’s best to read it at the translator’s Tumblr but I know that some people can’t access Tumblr so here’s a link to Mangadex –

Er, the manhua is a bit… I don’t want to be negative but the faces are a bit too generic and similar to each other. However, there is some stuff that I like so I’ll bear with it. (Edit: I take it back, lol. Chapter 3 was just released and I love it. I think maybe I just needed time to get used to the art style.)

Does anyone have more news about the donghua?

Thanks for reading.
