Cat’s Tea (Mao Zhi Ming) animation released!

Whoa, I can’t believe the Mao Zhi Ming (猫之茗) Chinese webcomic got an adaptation. Titled “Cat’s Tea,” the donghua or Chinese animation series has a cute “chibi” art style with a colorful palette. It’s quite fun to watch.

One day, a young lady named Jasmine transmigrated into the Tea Continent that was populated by beastmen. Later she met the Siberian Husky beastman Long Jing, the tsundere Red Fox girl Qi Hong, and the elegant young master of the Samoyed clan, Pu Er. Unexpectedly, Jasmine discovered that she was the prophesied legendary magician. Thus starts the tale of cats flying and dogs jumping!

Note: Samoyed and Siberian Husky are dog breeds. Also, the characters’ names are all names of different types of tea.

The story and characters are really cute. My only complaint is that the episodes are too short. It’s free to watch on the official website (in Chinese) –

You can probably find subtitled versions on popular anime websites.

Thanks for reading!

Chapter 19 – When a Fanfic Protagonist Transmigrated

Chapter 19 <— click here to read the chapter.

Cheating Men Must Die and why translation is hard

Have you read the webcomic “Cheating Men Must Die”? The original title is 万渣朝凰 which in no way translates as “Cheating Men Must Die.” Mangaupdates gives the suggested translation as “Phoenix Among Scum” and “King of The Phoenix” in English. Interestingly, the Korean title is 환생 해결사 , which is something like “Reincarnation Solver/Fixer.”

So what does the original title mean? Well, first of all, it’s probably a reference to the 百鸟朝凤, a four-character idiom or chengyu. The literal meaning is “all birds pay homage to the Phoenix.” The story behind it is that the Phoenix was a wise and industrious bird who gathered food all year round. During a famine, the Phoenix saved the other birds from starvation and as thanks, the other birds plucked their most beautiful feathers from their body to give to the Phoenix.

The webcomic’s title simply changed the character 百 (lit. a hundred) to 万 (lit. ten thousand) and 鸟 (bird) to 渣 (scum). So the actual title is “Ten Thousand Scum Pay Homage to the Phoenix.” Wow, that’s a  lot!

In addition, the metaphorical meaning of 百鳥朝鳳 is that “under a wise ruler the people live in peace and prosperity” and also, “all girls gravitate towards a supreme beauty.” Therefore, one could translate the title 万渣朝凰 as “All Scum Gravitate Towards a Supreme Beauty.”

Language is awesome, isn’t it?


Crushing a scumbag for a single moment gives momentary satisfaction, but lifetimes spent crushing scumbags provide lifetimes of continuous satisfaction. Su Lüxia, our female lead, transmigrates into other worlds with the Second Female Lead Counterattack System, and uses elaborate schemes and tricks to beat up countless cheating bastards and bitches.

Su Lüxia: “Only a cheating bastard’s tears of remorse, and the pained moans of a bitch unable to get what she wants, bring me solace.”

System: “Has my host tapped into her humanity today? Nope.”

I May Be a Mob but Because My Favorite Is Here, Everyday Is Fun

This manga is also known as “I May Be a Mob, but Because My Bias is Here Everyday is Fun” and “Mob dakedo Oshi ga Ikiterukara Mainichi ga Tanoshii.” Mangaupdates link –

It’s really funny, but don’t take it too seriously. The two main characters are hilarious! I hope it remains fluffy until the end.


Mariko Takahashi was reborn into the world of an otome game. However, she was not the main character, villainess, or a capture target. Instead, she’s merely a mob character. After seeing her favorite character – Taiga – for the first time, she immediately confesses her love for him. From that day onwards, the strange relationship between the two began.

Hiya guys! I have a new person working on this project, but they can’t translate the whole thing. If you would like to help out, even if it’s just one or two chapters, please leave a comment here or message me at the Novelupdates forum (you will need to make an account) at

The Strongest Characters in the World are Obsessed With Me

I’ve found a new webcomic to read! 세계관 최강자들이 내게 집착한다 – it’s translated a couple of different ways, but it’s basically about a girl who reincarnated into a magical world as the little sister of a capture target in a yandere otome game.

cute webcomic

The Most Powerful Characters in the World Are Obsessed With Me – One day, when a thirteen year old was chewing on some bread that came out as a snack, Dahlia Pesteros suddenly remembered her past life. This was the world of the tragic otome game where the characters went crazy, and she was born as the person who would become the greatest villain in the future’s younger sister! At this rate, there was no answer. The household would be exterminated, and I would also get my head cut off. That’s why I have to get out of this household as fast as possible!

I’m reading the version scanlated by Bored Corona Kids –

P.S. Her brother had long white hair, and I have a weakness for that!

Chapter 88 (end) – Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me

Chapter 88 <— click on the link to read it.

Hooray! This project is now completely translated! Today is International Translation Day so it’s good timing, too.

Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me Stats:
  • Start date: August 30, 2017
  • End date: September 30, 2020
  • Project duration: 1127 days (3 years, 1 month)
  • 88 chapters (80 main chapters + 8 extras)
  • That means one chapter was released every 12.8 days

I think that is a pretty decent frequency!

Of course, these last few chapters were all extras. If I were to exclude the extras and consider chapter 80 as the end chapter, then the stats are as follows:
  • Start date: August 30, 2017
  • End date: November 8, 2019
  • Project duration: 800 days (2 years, 2 months, 9 days)
  • 80 chapters (main story)
  • That means one chapter was released every 10 days

Now that this project has ended, I feel happy, proud, and even a little bit melancholy now that it’s all over. It has been a pleasure to work on Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me.

I hope everyone has enjoyed this journey! Thank you very much for accompanying me on this rollercoaster of emotions as we all read how Chu Yu went from a clueless teenager uncertain of himself into a strong and confident young man. Xie Xi went from a (secretly yandere) little flower-like child to… an openly yandere adult. 😀

When I read the early chapters, I’m amazed at how the main characters’ relationship has progressed from childish love x doting older brother into… obsessive lover x doting lover!

Thank you again for reading and let’s read more great stories. I look forward to more exciting projects in the future.

If you haven’t done so yet, please check out my previous project: The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love

Summary: An antifan was transported into the novel he was reading and becomes embroiled in the main character’s affairs.

Why you should read it: 

  • The reader is deaf (this could be the only danmei where there’s a main character with disabilities).
  • The novel’s main character is a shapeshifter with 8 different (and supremely beautiful/sexy) forms.
  • There’s a lot of explicit, rather kinky *cough* scenes which are all different. There’s at least one for every form (human, elf, dragon, angel, demon, beastkin, lich, gnome).
  • Actually a really sweet love story with a happy ending. Edit: based on a comment, I should add that there are some dark moments.
  • Completely translated, no waiting needed!
8 races time
Xiu and his 8 different forms

Review by Reitian: Absolutely amazing. This is exactly what I look for in a novel. Not only did it have a complex and well thought out plot with great pacing, the character development was steady and believable. I loved that the plot actually ventured on a dark path and I enjoyed the grotesque descriptions. There was action. There was adventure. Most importantly, it was consistent. Sometimes I feel like halfway through BL novels (specifically), the author gives up on the plot so the main CP can get together. That doesn’t happen in this story. Everything about it was intense, especially the romance. The attention to detail not only wraps everything up nicely, it weaves and threads the piece together.

Chapter 87 <— click on this link to read today’s chapter.

Are You OK – I am obsessed with this Chinese animated series!

Someone recommended this donghua (Chinese animation) to me and now I can’t get enough of it. Despite the serious-sounding summary, it’s mostly comedy. At least, I think it is. Looks like there might be some serious plot stuff later on.

are you ok donghua Title: Are You OK (You Yao)
Based on the novel

Summary: Today, the imperial court is soliciting transmigrators, giving them various positions according to their talents, changing the ancient civilization with modern technology, and trying to create a new world. Zuo Yunqi is just an ordinary young master, mixed with the court in disguise as a spy to save his father. However, he was recognized by one hired specifically to spot such spies, and the two engaged in an epic battle of wits.

Alternate summary:  3d comedy donghua in which transmigrators have started appearing in ancient fantasy China en-masse. They’re being rounded up by the government for their Big Brains™ and given positions of power/money/wealth (source)
