[Webnovel] Heroic Death System Part 2

In case you haven’t read yet, you may want to check out the previous post about Heroic Death System here where I talked about my general thoughts about the novel. Meanwhile, this post contains my thoughts about the individual worlds in the series.

Heroic Death System has 16 worlds (17 if you include the last known reincarnation cycle), 10 of which have redo arcs. Redo arcs have a chapter showing what happened once Shang Ke died and the rest is when he has a second chance to do the world.

[Webnovel] Heroic Death System Part 1

英勇赴死系统 / Heroic Death System

Author: 雪原幽灵 / Xue Yuan Specter

Raws:http://www.jjwxc.net/onebook.php?novelid=2740204

Translation:http://snowycodex.com/translations/novels/hds/

Novel Updates: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/heroic-death-system/

Chapters: 275

From Novel Updates:

“I curse you to never die in peace!”

 

Thus, Shang Ke started a never-ending (forced) cycle of constantly throwing away his miserable life.

 

He would always show himself as a martyr while letting others cry over his death.

 

It was because of a woman’s curse that Shang Ke was hit by a car and turned into a human vegetable. This led to him becoming bound by an unlucky system in which he was cursed to die. The most unfortunate part was that he never cheated on anyone’s feelings. The reason for why he was cursed by a woman was because of a guy named Qi Chen. Qi Chen was a ladies man, and he would always use Shang Ke as an excuse to break up with any woman that he was with. As a result, Shang Ke was always blamed for the breakups. Since then, the main character could only be forced to cross into different worlds. He would thus experience for himself, the hero’s “thrill”.

 

It’s HE.

MTL-ing this fried my brain cells but it was worth it!

[Webnovel] Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil – That much needed extra

Title: 快穿之打脸狂魔 / Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil

Author: 风流书呆 / Feng Liu Shu Dai

Novel Updates: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/quickly-wear-the-face-of-the-devil/

In a nutshell:

From Novel Updates:

A top hacker was chosen by the Lord God to be reborn into countless worlds, always as an expendable villain.

With no free will, every world became a dead end. Every one of his lives ended tragically.

Finally, after wresting control of the Villain System, this ace hacker decided to enact revenge. Even if his very bones were rotten, he’d choose to occupy the very heights of morality, if only on the surface.

Thus, he would change his fate as an abused slag.

Xue Zi Xuan had me drowning in complicated feels when I finished Arc 14 of Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil.

To juggle our memory, Xue Zi Xuan (XZX) is the adopted brother of Xue Jing Yi and Hwang Yi. XZX falls in love with Zhou Yun Sheng but alas, ZYS already has Immortal Lover. Who would have thought that XZX harbors deep feelings for ZYS and is able to have his much needed second chance?

Yes, this is an extra for QWFOD. And yes!!! This is an extra in which Xue Zi Xuan is the ML. Like the usual length of the other worlds, this story has 15 chapters of angst, drama, and romance.

For the main story: First part here. Second part here.

I’m fairly new in the CNovel fandom. And just like every other fandom I’ve been into, what I did, at first, was to search for the most recommended series. One of the titles that I often come across with, Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil or I’ll call it QWFOD from now on.

[Webnovel] Let Me Tease You – 3 reasons I loved this series

After re-reading this until the middle part for 3 times, I’ve managed to will myself to finish this! Finally!

Every time I’m nearing the climax, I always put this on hold. It’s not because it’s bad. But because I loved this novel so bad I didn’t want it to end.

Let Me Tease You

Let Me Tease You is from the same author of Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me so expect Ye Junchi (ML) to be on the same level of thirstiness as Xie Xi. But this is not a love-at-first-sight kind of attraction. It is more of a slow burn. And it’s one of the reasons why I loved this novel.

There are also other things that I loved in this series. So without further ado, let me share to you the things that I enjoyed while reading Let Me Tease You.

Hakushaku to Yousei (伯爵と妖精) light novels get a digital release!

This is, like, the best news of 2019.

 

 

One of the main reasons why I started to learn Japanese was because of Hakushaku to Yousei (HakuYou). I loved Edgar and Lydia’s relationship and the anime could only give me so much. Don’t even mention the manga because it didn’t go further in their story.

 

Unlike these days, the translation of the series was few and far in between back then. It frustrated me to no end.

 

So when I got into ebooks years later, the first thing that I did was to search for HakuYou. To my dismay, it wasn’t available for digital reading! Who knows how much I spammed the “request for title” button on both Rakuten Kobo and Amazon JP sites lol.

 

But now, we can finally read this amazing book in the digital format! Check out Amayan’s post where she also includes the sites where you can buy this series.

自己満足

Not a review post but to mention that the popular series by Tani Mizue is finally released digitally across various Japanese ebook retailers!!

[Novel] S 3: Split (エス 3: 裂罅 )

Svol3-cvr-15mmspine

Synopsis: (From the back of the book)

Undercover detective Msaki Shiiba has one mission in life – to eradicate guns in Japan. It’s an overwhelmingly tough job, but Shiiba’s willing to give up his body, his soul, even his life to achieve his goal. He’s also willing to use anyone to get what he wants.

 

For almost a year now, Shiiba has been using Keigo Munechika as his “S,” his spy, to get information on the gun dealings of the Yakuza world. Shiiba uses his body in exchange for Munechika’s sensitive information… and only his body as far as Shiiba is concerned. Shiiba vows their relationship will not go beyond that.

 

A new case and some new information further complicate this difficult relationship. When a rowdy young man with a penchant for piercing and an enigmatic Yakuza leader cross paths with the young detective, sins of hte past are unearthed once more. Sins— sins that just might shatter the fragile bond between the detective and his “S.”

[Novel] S 2: Love Bite (エス 2: 咬痕)

Svol2-cvr-13mmspine

Synopsis: (From the back of the book)

Detective Masaki Shiiba’s informant or “S,” Keigo Munechika, has proven himself to be an excellent source of information. But the payment of sex for every lead given is taking its toll on Shiiba. Each moment in Munechika’s arms is both heaven and hell for the detective.

 

But with his new assignment as back-up to a fellow undercover detective, Shiiba learns that there are far worse things than having sex with your male S — falling helplessly in love with him, for example.

 

S volume 2 continues the drama and passion between a detective and his spy set in the hihgly-charged underground world of Tokyo.

So after how many years, I started reading the S series again. It’s been four years since I’ve read the first volume so I had to re-read book one first.

Updated posts: Scum Villain, MDZS, and TGCF

mxtx

I’ve caught up with Mo Xiang Tong Xiu’s works! Woot!

I’m done reading the MTL and now, I’ve also caught up to the recently translated chapters of all three novels. That includes the extras as well. In case you’re wondering why I’m still following the translations, it’s because I feel like I’ve missed a lot of finer details (and names!) in MTL.

While SV was a little easier to read via MTL (mainly because I only have to read a couple more chapters before the end), MDZS and TGCF were downright difficult. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but the names screwed me up every single time.

If you have the time or suffering from withdrawal symptoms like me, you could check out Yume-chan’s fan song translation posts. The songs are wonderful and the PVs… my gosh, the PVs! They are freaking amazing! Some videos are just… wow.

With that said, I’ve updated my posts with my after-thoughts. Check them out on the links below:
