If a chapter is late by a day or two, don’t worry. We have active translators who are currently working on this project!

Thanks for reading. Please let me know if there are any errors. You can just leave a comment here if you spot any mistakes. Apparently, I forgot to add the “next chapter” link last week and no one told me, lol. It should be fixed now. 😀

Chapter 40 – Scum Villain

I sometimes put recommendations on these posts. Here’s one!

Oni Love Comedy

I’ve been reading this hilarious and surprising manga: Oni Love Comedy. The main character is a really strong and scary red-haired high school student who is called “oni” because of his appearance.

He’s way too scary so girls always run away from him! All is not lost however, since mamy fujoshis love forceful seme characters! Check out this one page below:



Yes, it is indeed a guy doing the legendary kabedon on another guy.

The manga is not BL. Only two chapters have been scanlated so far but I am enjoying it.

You can read the manga at Mangadex.

October release schedule

This month chapters are being published every five days.

5 – chapter 35
10 – chapter 36
15 – chapter 37
20 – chapter 38
25 – chapter 39
30 – chapter 40

However, I am not sure what the schedule will be for November. The minimum is one chapter per week but we might be able to continue releasing one chapter every five days. No promises though!

It totally depends on how many chapters all of the translators are able to finish.

The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System Animation!

Did you know that The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System is getting a donghua (Chinese animated series similar to “anime”)?

Check this out!


Above is a screenshot of the author’s webpage. The icons beside each story indicate different things. The yellow orange one means “animation” contract has been signed. All of the author’s stories:

  • The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System
  • The Founder of Diabolism
  • Heaven Official’s Blessing

… are getting animated!

There’s no news yet on when we will be able to watch The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System animation.

I don’t know the source but this is a great fan art of Shen Qingqiu. He is normally drawn by fans this way – in green robes, holding his fan, and looking fine.

The one thing I don’t like as much when it comes to Shen Qingqiu fanart are the ones that make him look girly. He’s not supposed to look girly!

Thanks for reading.

Chapter 35 – Scum Villain

The story continues

Chapter 34 ended in a cliffhanger but worry not! Now that chapter 35 has been released, readers can find out what happened next.

The translators, checkers, and editors are working on more chapters. We’ve been working hard and hope to release up to chapter 40 this month.

It might take a few minutes for this release to appear in Novelupdates. If you are not familiar with Novelupdates, it is an index site that lists a lot of translation releases. The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System has a project page there.

Thanks for reading.

Translation going full steam

This chapter was translated by Scriptor (the original translator) and Wenq.

The next few chapters are going to be translated by a few different translators working together along with quite a few editors. We are currently aiming for a weekly release schedule so that no one will get overworked. All future releases will now be on BC Novels.

Thank you for your support.

I also want to make a sort of “everything related to The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System” page with lots of fanart, fan comics, fan fiction, etc. but that is a low priority for now as I focus on the chapter releases.

There are tons of great fan art. Here’s one that I thought was of Shen Qingqiu:

Looks like it’s from a video game but I have no idea which. It kinda looks like SQQ.

The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System

I’ve taken over this project. No release schedule yet since I am looking for more people to join. Hopefully, I can find co-translators, translation checkers, and editors.

Once things settle down, I will try for a weekly release schedule.

When I start a project, it takes a bit of time to get everything up and going. Ideally, chapters are done this way:

  1. My first draft
  2. Sent to translation checker
  3. My second draft
  4. Sent to editor
  5. My third draft
  6. Final check by editor, checker, and me
  7. My final version

As you can imagine, this takes a bit of time. However, if there is no one to help, I will simply solo the entire thing. Weekly should be doable either solo or with a small team. If more translators volunteer to help out then we can release more.

Things should settle down by next month.

The image above is a fanart of Shen Qingqiu but I don’t know the original source. I like it since most fanarts don’t show action like this one.
