Chapter 99 – The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System

Update: Since Scum Villain has been officially licensed, I have removed all Scum Villain chapters! Please support the official translation.

I’m leaving this chapter up because of the comments.

Reika’s Notes:

Looking back on this project, I remember when the first English fan translation was released by CNovelLuv (aka Worshipper A) in May 2017. That was how I discovered MXTX, and I quickly became obsessed with Scum Villain! In February 2018, the original translator was ill and I helped them out with a few chapters on their website before I took over the project. The first chapter of Scum Villain on BC Novels was released on September 20, 2018.

A major milestone was when BC Novels completed the original, core story with the release of chapter 81!

Since the day BC Novels took over the Scum Villain project on 09/20/18, 48 chapters were published in 259 days. That is a rate of about 1 chapter every 5 days. We took more time to finish all the extras, though. We released around one chapter per month on average.

I’m happy that this story is complete! Thank you very much to everyone who has helped and all the readers and fans who read this story.

  1. Hi, thank you for relaying the great news re official English release! And thank you so, so much for providing such great, high-quality translations.

    I got into SVSSS via the officially licensed Korean version only very recently, and to my regret, I didn’t get to finish reading BC Novels English version. I understand you had to remove the translations because of licensing issue, but is it possible to beg you for just the translators’ notes? I’ve always found them a treasure trove of cultural knowledge and would love to see them.

    I understand completely if it cannot be done. I just thought I’d ask. 🙂 Thank you very much for your time!

    1. 🙂 Oh, the notes? But without the context, they wouldn’t mean anything, sadly. It could be done if the translators did some work to make the notes independent, but most translators are either busy or no longer active in the fan translation community. The official translation will have notes though! I read that from twitter.

    2. Thank you for answering! It sounds like it would cause you a lot of trouble. It’s fine, don’t worry about it! Thank you so much for considering my request.

      I was interested in the more linguistic notes, where translators explained why they chose certain English expressions for certain Chinese phrases, etc. SVSSS Korean version has a fair number of footnotes and granted, they’re much better than Mo Dao Zu Shi official translation, but they don’t get into that kind of detail. I love that fan translations include so much more details. I really wish I had a chance to save BC Novels version footnotes, but sadly, I came too late into the SVSSS fandom. 🙂

      Thank you again!

  2. never commented here( tho I regret it now), but I have read your translation around 5 times and how I laughed and cried at this wonderful book. I loved your T/N notes. I feel very sad I can never read your version svsss ever again, but this is very bittersweet. Thank you for introducing me to this novel.

    1. It was my pleasure! It’s a bittersweet feeling to know that our fan version is gone forever now, but I’m sure we’re all glad that the paperbacks are coming out soon.

  3. I came to re-read it again after the news of it being licensed and buying the first volumes TT

    Thank you so much for your hard work <3

    Ps: I guess it is impossible to get your translation meanwhile, isn't it? TT

    Thank you again <3 <3 <3

    1. Hi, sorry but we had to remove it to avoid trouble. I’m sure you understand.

      You’re very welcome!👍

  4. I don’t know how I am going to be able to wait for all the volumes to be released to read it again TT and I didn’t get to read the last chapter TT

    Anyways, thank you for your hard work <3

I appreciate you all so much and thank you for helping me regain my lost interest in reading (and guided me towards the MXTX fandom) 😉

    1. This is one of the funniest novel I’ve ever read and impressive you finished it in 3 days!!

  8. OMG, so spicy! Binghe is so diligent and Shenqiu can’t help but be a little curious now can he? I laughed when I read those pen names.

    Thanks for translating the entire work over these past few years. I’ve had so much fun in this fandom!

  9. I started reading this when up through chapter 98 was done after finding out that my ‘read offline’ version was actually cutting off mid-paragraph. So I found the original translator’s site, then eventually found my way here. I love how dedicated you all are and I want to thank you for completing this work after three years of translating it.

    Like the other two novels done by MXTX, this is a very wonderful story, though I find myself at a loss about how to explain just why I keep bursting into spontaneous laughter while reading it to my roommate. I’ll be poking my head into your other translations and hopefully they amuse me just as much. Thank you very, very much. <3

    1. Oh my gosh, same! Just randomly laughing at their antics every time I read.

      You’re welcome!

  10. Congratulations congratulations congratulations! Important things must be said three times…

    Hurray! Another project done! I remember when I first started reading Scum Villain… Those were good times. And the fandom produces so many good things–never regretted reading this novel.
