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.

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.

my fantastical corner

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:


The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System (人渣反派自救系统)


The Founder of Diabolism (魔道祖师)


Heaven Official’s Blessing (天官赐福)


 

[Webnovel] Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me (主角每天都想攻略我)

cover-every-day

The Scum Villain’s Self-Serving System opened the world of transmigration/reincarnation/rebirth/system danmei novels to me so you’ll see a bunch of those titles here in the future. 😂 After reading Scum Villain, I needed something to distract me from my feels and this title was perfect!

Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me

From Novel Updates:

Transmigrated into the body of a cannon fodder villain, Chu Yu has three major worries:

 

1. How can he help the protagonist turn into a real harem master?
2. How can he develop a good relationship with the protagonist?
3. How can he live properly without holding on to the protagonist’s thigh?

 

The protagonist has three major worries:
1. Eldest disciple brother has changed
2. Eldest disciple brother has really changed
3. How can he marry eldest disciple brother?

 

System: Congratulations! ~ Sprinkle Flowers ~ Grow Old Together Happily!

 

Chu Yu: … Wait, what about the harem novel?

 

Author’s Note – This 1vs1 (no harem) And HE (Happy Ending)

This novel should also be called Everyday My Shidi is Thirsty. 😂

[Webnovel] Heaven Official’s Blessing (天官赐福)

tgcf

Honestly? I didn’t really like this when I read the first chapter for the first time. It was just an overview, a tl;dr of Xie Lian’s background. But I thought that maybe, I was too tired and at the same time, occupied by other novels.

Heaven Official’s Blessing

Summary from Sakhyulations:

For you, I’ll become invincible!

“Have you heard? The rubbish Heaven Official is having an affair with the ghost realm’s number one bigshot!”

I loved this summary! It sounded like a gossip from a tabloid. It made it seem like the novel was pure fun, humor, laughter to no end…

…pfft. As if.


Eight hundred years ago, Xie Lian was the Crown Prince of the Xian Le kingdom; one who was beloved by his citizens and the darling of the world. Unsurprisingly, he ascended to the Heavens at a very young age. Now, eight hundred years later, Xie Lian ascends to the Heavens for the third time as the laughing stock of all three realms. On his first task as a god, he meets a mysterious demon who rules the ghosts and terrifies the Heavens……yet unbeknownst to Xie Lian, this demon king has been paying attention to him for a very, very long time.
