Chapter 1 – Every day the protagonist wants to capture me

Chapter 1 – Girly1 System

With an expressionless face, Chu Yu2 was sitting in front of the computer, staring with bloodshot eyes at the novel on the screen.

The title of the novel is very domineering, concise, and like clear running water – “Supreme Sword Immortal.”3

In truth, web novel websites are overrun with things like: xx extreme, xx immortal way, arrogant xx, and so on. It’s like poking a hornet’s nest. As a faithful reader of web novels, Chu Yu was not alarmed by these strange sights. Every day he looked forward to the update of the big god,4 and was always searching for the next big god. He really wanted to accompany a future big god in making a mark.5

The author of “Supreme Sword Immortal” was a novice. 500,000 characters, 50 clicks.6 Last night, Chu Yu saw this novel and, at first glance, it –

The cannon fodder villain has his name!

How can he endure it?

Chu Yu’s grief and indignation were overflowing.7 All night long he watched the computer and, finally, he was able to read the current update to see how his namesake, the cannon fodder villain, died in the latest chapter.

The cannon fodder with the same name as him, such an unconventional love, ah!

Chu Yu was driven beyond the limits of his forbearance and pounded on the table fiercely, saying, “You’ve got to be kidding me!”

However, it was summer vacation and his roommates had gone back home so no one responded to him.

Chu Yu scratched his ears and cheeks, angrily saying, “He has my name but not my IQ! If it were me, I definitely wouldn’t end up that way! Minus points! Bad review!”

He had just finished saying those words when suddenly, his vision turned black. His head hurt like he had a hangover.

Chu Yu’s long experience with staying up late was able to keep him quite calm while waiting for the lights to turn back on. However long he waited, his surroundings continued to remain dark, making him start to panic.

Was he blinded by a flash of light from the street?

Suddenly a pleasant voice sounded in his ear. “Welcome, host, to the Role Playing Game ~ System 007 is here to serve you.”


“Your strong resentment summoned the system to give you a chance to change the fate of the cannon fodder.”

“Ha ha ha.”

“Please lead the book to the peak of the peak ~ popular in the North and South ~”

This thing called the system seemed real. For a long time Chu Yu fought to regain his composure. Finally, ignorant and disbelieving, he pointed at himself and asked: “I need to lead?”

007 System paid no attention to his question and blithely continued. “From now on ~ this book will have a recommendation position8 ~ has exposure rate ~, but this book lead does not conform to the mainstream stallion text ~ asking the host to diligently lead the story back on track ~”

Yes, Chu Yu knew about this. In the “Supreme Sword Immortal” novel, the protagonist Xie Xi’s talent has been sealed since childhood. The sect members laughed at him, calling him trash, and often bullied him. This has happened so many times that the protagonist has become antisocial. If a beauty were to appear, he wouldn’t know how to add her to his harem. 500,000 characters have been written and several beauties have begun to flirt with him.

This can really be called stud writing?

How can he not accept the little brothers?9

Without forming a harem, can he really play the lead role?

No wonder the author’s face has become bloody!

007 System: “It seems like the host knows what to do ~”

Chu Yu unconsciously imitated the System’s flirtatious10 way of speaking that was trying to act cute. “Um ~”

007 System: “The host will have an initial score of 100 points ~ receiving high praise will add 2 points ~ neutral comments do not add points ~ bad reviews will deduce 2 points ~ when the host’s score reaches 1,000, he can choose to return to his original world ~ if the score goes below 0 points, he will immediately embark on the villain’s cannon ending ~

The ending? The Chu Yu character in the book flirted with the female lead. Xie Xi, with this new provocation added to the existing resentment in his heart, cut the cannon fodder to pieces and then threw his soul into the soul furnace, never to rise up again.

Chu Yu suddenly felt cold: “What the f**k ~”

007 System: “Wishing the host a pleasant stay ~”

Chu Yu: “Hey ~ wait ~”

A white light suddenly flashed. Chu Yu hurriedly closed his eyes but he still could not help but shed tears. Feeling wronged, he wiped the tears away.

Opening his teary eyes, he heard a sound and was shocked.

Anyone who opened his eyes and found himself in the dark, with the wind blowing down a bottomless abyss, would be frightened.

Right now his eyes were still blurry and he felt dangerously dizzy, as though he was about to fall down.

There was someone behind him saying: “Eldest brother!”11

Chu Yu took a deep breath and tried to calm himself, only to find that just a foot away was an abyss. He was sitting cross-legged on a piece of granite. The sky was overcast, thunder was booming, the scene was very depressing.

The footsteps behind him sounded nearer now. “Eldest brother, you went to this place to gain enlightenment! Really impressive!”

Chu Yu was surprised. It seems that he has now transmigrated into the world of “Supreme Sword Immortal” and his identity is that of his namesake, the stupid cannon fodder villain.

The original Chu Yu was a noble, elegantly beautiful, and haughty person, Chu Yu tried to make a noble, elegantly beautiful expression on his face, and coldly nodded. “Ah~ … well.”

F**k, he was too used to imitating the girly system and his tone unconsciously flew up!

Behind him was a young man dressed in white robes. He was quite handsome and seemed accustomed to Chu Yu’s attitude. Standing about two feet away, he said, “Eldest brother, that trash was driven into the jungle by Fifth Brother. He hasn’t come out. Shizun will be returning from his travels tomorrow. What should we do?”

That trash? Jungle?

It’s the protagonist!

Chu Yu assumed an awe-inspiring appearance.

He must change his destiny as cannon fodder. He must form a good relationship with the protagonist. He must hold the thigh. Even when the boy forms a gang, he should be the one to cheer the loudest.12

… Looking at the situation, the darkest three years of Xie Xi’s life have already passed by.

The jungle is where Xie Xi broke through his seal. This is an important event. The original Chu Yu, afraid of his master’s punishment, was dragged into the dangerous jungle and found Xie Xi when he had broken the seal.

Now that I’m here, why don’t I go and watch the most important moment in the protagonist’s life?

Their relationship can be slowly developed ~ think of the future when holding the thigh and turning the protagonist into the normal type of harem master ~ to collect younger brothers and harem members ~ abusing the cannon fodder and villains, stepping onto the road of becoming the strongest in the world ~ ah, a bright future ~ it makes a person feel excited ~.

Chu Yu pondered for a moment then took the bull by the horns. “I will go find the Lord – I mean I’ll go get that kid.”

Behind him the younger brother scratched the back of his head, puzzled at Chu Yu’s excitement.

Chu Yu is the son of the first wife (Literally: Di son, the son of the legitimate Di wife). He is the eldest disciple of the Tianyuan (天渊 Heavenly Abyss) sect’s second elder Lu Qingan. Because of that, Chu Yu has always been conceited, and has a noble, glamorous, lofty image. But ever since Lu Qingan took in Xie Xi, he has been a changed man, always kicking, beating, and insulting Xie Xi.

It seems a bit wrong.13

Of course, Chu Yu would certainly not say out loud that he is a little excited to see the thigh he will be hugging in the future. Firstly, he wanted to help the protagonist because the old Chu Yu is just cannon fodder. Secondly, he really likes Xie Xi’s appearance and character.

Ahem, the appearance.

Chu Yu is the Appearance Association VIP permanent member.

His current body has the original Chu Yu’s memories. As he walked down the cliff, he encountered many people while he was mentally digesting those memories. When everyone saw the fluttering white robes and the cold temperament of Chu Yu, they all stopped and bowed respectfully saying: “Eldest Brother.”

Chu Yu coldly nodded and continued to walk.

But his heart was really clear.

Haha, the status of this cannon fodder cannot be good at all! Everyone who sees him has to loudly shout “Eldest Brother” respectfully! Haha!

Using the body’s memories, he walked to the jungle – one of the sect’s restricted areas. Inside it are the low level demonic beasts that the sect is raising. Those below Foundation Building rank cannot enter.

Chu Yu’s body has excellent natural talent. At only 19 years old, he has built his Foundation so this restriction does not apply to him.

Xie Xi is said to be the son of Lu Qingan’s old friend and was accepted as his disciple. His status is higher than everyone here, except for Chu Yu. What a pity that his meridians were sealed. Unable to cultivate for three years, he was called trash, suffered bullying, and turned his eyes away from people.

Lu Qingan wandered the world’s four directions for three years, looking for a way to help Xie Xi cultivate. Before he left, he asked Chu Yu to take good care of Xie Xi. Since then he has been “taking care” of the younger boy.

Now, Lu Qingan is returning to the sect. Xie Xi went into the jungle and has not come out yet. The sect members are terrified, fearing that the teacher will punish someone. Seeing Chu Yu, the noisy crowd swarmed up to him, crying for help.

Chu Yu calmly faced Fifth Brother who was wailing like a professional mourner at a funeral. “What should we do, Eldest Brother? If that trash dies in there … the master … The master will expel me …”

Looking at the small cannon fodder, the big cannon fodder Chu Yu frivolously patted his head. “Don’t worry, no harm was done.”

In the jungle the protagonist will upgrade his skills.

Fifth Brother was touched and immediately became panic-stricken. The Eldest Brother always dislikes human contact … There seems to be something wrong with Eldest Brother today!

Chu Yu, full sleeves fluttering, went inside the jungle.

Inside it was dark. Chu Yu squinted but he still couldn’t see much. Suddenly there was a slippery icy touch like something has licked his face.

How creepy!

The shocked Chu Yu almost screamed. The body’s reflexes and psychic strength were very good, his fist ruthless and fast.

A pained hissing came from the front. His eyes finally adapted to the dim light of the jungle and Chu Yu saw a twenty-feet long python.

The python was frightened by the punch and stared at Chu Yu, too afraid to move.

It was only a low-level demonic beast. Chu Yu, who was in the Foundation Building stage, could kill it effortlessly.

Chu Yu calmed down and wiped his face. As the python slithered away, he suddenly noticed that there were bits of cloth on its poisonous fangs. Looking at that cloth, it’s the same as what he is wearing.


Wait a minute.

WTF!!! Brother, no! Have you already eaten the protagonist?!!

    1. g点 – perspective/ point of view

      Seems like is there something wrong with this Da Shixiong’s perspective?

    1. ikr, thats why i scrool 1st to see how it plays. if its mainly same i dont think i will get the new feeling i will drop it

    2. Hello, translator! I’m wanting to translate this fanfic to Portuguese and I need your permission for that, could you give me your permission?

  1. I want to know if the Cultivator Original Chu Yu is in the nerdy college boy’s body. And what he’s doing.

  2. Wow, that system really is kind of a brat. I mean, having to get to 1000 points from 100?! Though I guess it has to give time for the leads to fall in love, but still, suck system.

    Thank you for the new project!

    1. I read another novel that needed 10 million points but the mc only had 60k after like 100 chapters

  3. “Chu Yu saw a two-foot long python” I believe this should be twenty feet long? Using my MTL skills, ha. Rereading the novel and caught that today.

  4. I love a novel that starts with misunderstanding and end with love~ This make me so excited! Thank u for the translation.

  5. I actually started reading this translation on my way to work while I ride the bus. But I don’t remember my WordPress login so I couldn’t like or comment. But I wanted to show my gratefulness. Thank you for translating this. Currently I’m up to chapter 18.

  6. Okay, as someone new to WNs, what the frack does “the thigh” mean? Every time he says it I can only imagine him riding the main lead’s thigh to get off, like what?

  7. *nods* Yes, your interest in the protagonist is purely platonic.. you are not the shou at all. I see, I see.. XD XD XD

    Thank you very much for all your hard work!

  8. 怎么觉得大师兄这次的g/点有点不对劲? Is literally ‘Somehow there’s something wrong with Senior Martial Brother’s G-spot?’

    It should mean that he’s missing the point.

    1. Thank you. Yes, that’s also what I got, literally. I’m wondering if there’s something specific not just “there’s something wrong.” Uh, missing the G point of what? See, that’s what I don’t get. What’s the context of this phrase? I thought of translating it (non-literally) as “there’s a hole in his brain” lol.

  9. Hahaha.. oh no! Eaten already! (By python)
    Can totally imagine his panic realisation XD

    This new project is already off to an interesting start.
    Can’t wait to see more. Thanks for posting <3

  10. Thank you for your awesome job in translating this chapter, now I’m looking forward to read this novel! And I’m really happy to know this is “1vs1 (no harem) and HE (happy ending)”!
    BTW, poor Chu Yu, I feel like he was forgotten after his father took in the protagonist, and that’s why he treated Xie Xi badly… In the original plot he killed his benefactor’s son just because he “flirted with the female lead”??? Too evil!!!

    1. I’d choose the current title “Every day the protagonist wants to pursue me”. Whether you put the adverb of time (“every day”) in the beginning or in the end of the sentence is a matter of emphasis, but since I don’t know Chinese… I just have no idea which translation is more accurate. (Just don’t use “The protagonist wants to guide […]”).
    2. There is a repetition in “[…] only to find that only a foot away was an abyss.” Don’t know how it is in the original text, but perhaps you could use synonyms like “just” or “not more than”.

    1. Edit: 1. You just updated the title to “Every day the protagonist wants to capture me” and I really like it too. Sounds like an Otome Game or Pokemon lol~ “Gotta Catch ‘Em All”~

  11. rainbowhearthome

    I feel so bad for Chu Yu being transported just for being resentful XD
    I wonder if he’ll ‘change’ from being cold and haughty to cold but nice on the inside.

  12. Well i dont really have much to quibbel around… i just wanna thank you very much for providing us readers with a new novel…. this novel is just to my liking. I already love it 🙂
    Do you already know how frequently the updates will be?

  13. “Xx extreme, xx immortal way, arrogant xx” – I was laughing so hard when I saw this (so true) 😀 Thanks for the chapter 🙂

  14. I’ll be sure to follow the novel, it feels similar to transmigrating to rehabilitate the villain plan chuchu. It seems like a good read. Thanks for picking it up!!

  15. I think “Everyday the protagonist pursues me” sounds better, as the “want” sounds really weird in English. If one wants to keep the “want”, “pursue” could be changed to “seduce” or kept as “capture”. “want” could be changed to “aims” as well.

    As for the novel, I would love to beta, if you haven’t already found someone! I have nothing to say about the translation that hasn’t already been said though~

  16. Hello, migrated here from “The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love.” I’m actually still going through the ML of that (because I’m the impatient type, I also go straight to the endings of books when I’m reading too), and now I have another potential new story to stalk (yey!)

    Checking for errors, I saw this:
    Chu Yu coldy nodded and continued to talk.

    It should be “coldly” not “coldy”

    I think I’ll be checking the ML of this too, hehe

  17. There’s typo I found…went to to —> double “to”
    And for “Eldest brother” which is translated form da shixiong, I would suggest “Senior brother” or “senior-apprentice brother” instead because eldest brother would sound like da ge or da xiong.
    The overall vibe of the story is great, I really enjoy it. A few confuse point/line but I think it would get better by the time you work on familiar with it.

    1. Ah, I’m thinking of just keeping it as da shixiong. Or sort of doing it by halves – sometimes English and sometimes Chinese. I’ll have to think about it.

      Thanks, I removed the double “to.”

  18. The title sounds nice to me although “Everyday the Protagonist wants to pursue me” sounds good as well.

    Thanks for the chapter and new novel~~

  19. Little Fluffy Ninja Sheep

    Definitely checking this one out!
    Is the cultivation system similar to ISSTH or RMJI?
    Foundation Building sounds like Foundation Establishment… maybe it’s just me.
    But thank you for the translation!

  20. Here are a few things. I’m being nit-picky because you asked me to be. So apologies up-front if I went over board.

    1. The tense shifts between present and past. Not sure if you are following the original while doing that. It’s usually preferable to stick to one or the other.
    2. ‘peak of the peak’ -> something like ‘zenith’?
    3. ‘recommendation position’ -> is it something like a default outcome or a recommended flow?
    4 ‘This can really be called stud writing?’ –> Should it be ‘Can this really be called stud writing?’
    5. ‘that trash was was driven into the jungle’ –> double ‘was’
    6. ‘it one of the sect’s restricted areas’ —> ‘it was…’

    1. Thanks for the feedback.

      1-3 – I know it sounds weird but that’s how it was written in the original. I will try to fix the tenses.

      4-6 – Thanks, I fixed those.

    2. “peak of the peak” can also be “paramount” but “lead the book to the paramount” sounds awk.

  21. oh god this is insanely long I'm so sorry

    First things first- I’m coming at this from a ‘new to webnovel translations’ position since, hi, I found this was an actual thing about three days ago, so feel completely free to ignore anything I say below, because I know very little about the translation culture and community. If anything I suggest is screwy, please forgive- I’m more used to editing my friends’ fanfiction.

    That said, an alternative title option would be ‘seduce’- as in, ‘Every day the protagonist wants to seduce me’, giving the title the same weight of ‘capture’ while making it very clear what the protagonist would do when he achieves his goal.

    I got somewhat carried away with the suggestions- this story looks so interesting, and I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

    “With an expressionless face, Chu Yu was sitting beside the computer, staring with bloodshot eyes at the screen while reading a novel.” I would change ‘beside’ to ‘in front of’ and possibly rephrase the last half to something like ‘staring with bloodshot eyes at the novel on the screen’.

    “The title of the novel is very domineering, concise, and like clear running water – “Supreme Sword Immortal.”” Change is to was to keep the tense, add a comma after clear.

    “He really wants to accompany a future big god in making a mark” Maybe change it to ‘making their mark’.

    This one is a bit ymmv, but in this line: “Chu Yu was driven beyond the limits of his forbearance and pounded on the table fiercely, saying, “Absurd!”” ‘absurd’ isn’t a common phrase used when pissed- if there’s no sign that it could mean ‘bullshit’, then possibly ‘you’ve got to be kidding me!’. Same meaning, more commonly said in english. Unless this is setting up ‘absurd’ as his thing, in which case I approve.

    “I definitely would not end up that way!” Same as above, unless he’s just that formal a guy, I’d change it to wouldn’t.

    “Chu Yu is accustomed to staying up late, he has had a lot of experience, so he was able to stay quite calm, waiting for the lights to turn back on.” another phrasing one- the sentence feels overly long, and not in the way that you’d want it to, maybe change it to something similar to ‘Chun Yu’s long experience with staying up late was able to keep him quite calm while waiting for the lights to turn back on.’

    “However, he waited for a long time but the surroundings remained dark, making him panic a bit.” Consider altering the phrasing to eliminate either ‘however’ or ‘but’- they both mean the same thing and feel repetitive. ‘However long he waited, his surroundings continued to remain dark, making him start to panic.’

    “If a beauty were to appear, he wouldn’t know how to add her to his harem. 500,000 words have been written and several beauties have begun to flirt with him.” Words contradict with the characters up above, additionally I can’t tell how long this is in terms of timespan- does the author mean that it’s been this long, and only now the MC has started getting attention, or that he’d ignored the attention through the entire length? Also, holy shit, this guy can read. 500,000 characters or words, in one day that’s a massive undertaking. Hats off to him, I think he deserves to use ‘absurd’.

    “007 System: “It seems like the host knows what to do ~”” Honestly, the ~ is enough indication of who’s talking, the name tag feels superfluous, especially since it wasn’t tagged earlier.

    “Chu Yu suddenly felt cold: “What the f**k ~”” Alternately, maybe ‘bullshit’ does fit this guy’s character. Also, change : to , and the following two lines still don’t need the name tags to be clear as to who’s talking.

    “Chu Yu, taking a deep breath, tried to calm himself, only to find that only a feet away was an abyss.” tense issues, try something like ‘took/trying” also change ‘feet’ to ‘foot’.

    “The original Chu Yu was a noble, elegant beautiful, and haughty person, Chu Yu tried to make a noble, elegantly beautiful expression on his face, and coldly nodded.” either add a comma after ‘elegant’, or a ‘ly’, to make them consistent.

    “F**k, he was too used to imitating the girly system that his tone unconsciously flew up!” “and his tone” flows better.

    “Even when the boy forms a gang, he should be the one to cheer the loudest” Very likely chu yu means to insinuate himself as the best bro of this particular group of brothers.

    “… Looking at the situation, the darkest three years of Xie Xi’s life have passed by.” Maybe add ‘already’, to make it ‘have already passed by’? Not sure on how well that fits the original text, though.

    “found Xie Xi when he had broken the seal.” add ‘right’ before when

    “to collect younger brother and harem members” pretty sure brother should be plural, unless it’s common to only have one dude companion?

    “Haha, the status of this cannon fodder simply cannot be good!” The phrasing here implies that the status is a bad thing, despite everything else around it implies that it’s a good this, so. Add ‘this’ in front of ‘good’, to make it more disbelieving?

    “he walked to the jungle – it one of the sect’s restricted areas.” Either get rid of it, or change it to ‘it being’

    “Inside it are low level demonic beasts that the sect is raising.” ‘are the low’

    “The shocked Chu Yu almost screamed.” ‘nearly screamed’ flows better.

    “The body reflexes and psychic strength were very good, his fist was ruthless and fast.” ‘body’s’ and I’d actually cut ‘was’

    “The python was frightened by the punch and stared at Chu Yu, afraid to move.” “too afraid to move”, I think

    “As the python slithered away, he suddenly noticed that there were bits of cloth on its poisonous teeth.
    Looking at that cloth, it’s the same as what he is wearing.” I would merge those, I think. “He suddenly noticed bits of cloth on it’s poisonous fangs- the same cloth he was wearing” Also, teeth⇒ fangs.

  22. “waiting for the -electricity- to turn back on” -> light- it sounds better because everything went dark because of his exhaustion not a blackout of the room.

  23. Crazy Stalker Fan

    This was really good and I really loved it!! I took your message seriously and looked over it to try to see if there are any errors and there was only one:

    Chu Yu coldy nodded and continued to talk.

    I think instead of the ‘talk’ here it should be ‘walk’ and this is the only error I found in the whole thing so it seems to be very good! I hope this helped because I wanted to try my best and help you!

  24. This looks really good. I am sorry, I really cant help with the title but I think the title now sounds good.

  25. PrettyDamnCritical

    This looks really good! Regarding the title, “The protagonist wants to woo me every day” sounds more like an otome game setting, and “The protagonist wants to guide me every day” doesn’t sound like anything related to romance.
    “Every day the protagonist wants to pursue me” is equally good to the current title. This is just my opinion and sadly the only thing i can help with, but I hope it helps! Thank you for the chapter~ ❤
