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

scum villain

So I was reading Mo Dao Zu Shi and was running out of translated chapters. But I didn’t want to pick up any random title. What I wanted to read was Heaven Official’s Blessing next but that was the third novel. My OC part wanted to read everything MXTX had written in chronological order. Thus, I decided to start reading the Scum Villain’s Self-Serving System.

The Scum Villain’s Self-Serving System

From Novel Updates:

Can’t I read stallion novels anymore?! [TN: genre with OP protag & harem]

 

Shen Yuan is reborn into a young man and scum villain destined to die, Shen Qingqiu.

 

But it must be known that the original Shen Qingqiu was sliced alive by his disciple, Luo Binghe, into a human stick! A human stick!

 

Shen Qingqiu’s heart is a full herd of grass mud horses running full tilt, yet:

 

“It’s not like I don’t want to hug this main character’s thighs, but who let this fucking man be so black. The revenge that needs to be taken is some thousands of deeds!

 

Why is all the romance that should be going to the women in the plot imposed on him?

 

Why as a scum villain, should he still have to block gun and knife for the protagonist and sacrifice himself?

 

Shen Qingqiu: “…… _(:□)∠)_I think I can still save him one more time.”

 

He wants to prove – even scum villains can live, and live coolly at that!

 

It’s also the story of a small white flower who later became a black flower attacking a scholarly, scum villain type.

 

This is the story of a master and disciple’s everyday unknowing, very strange, dog-blood process of falling in love.

 

It’s also a scum villain’s firsthand account of the male protagonist turning from a small white sheep into an overbearing black king, sort of story……

[Webnovel] The Founder of Diabolism (魔道祖师)

fod

I got too curious.

Seeing a flood of The Founder of Diabolism (let me call it MDZS for the rest of the post) tweets on my Twitter timeline piqued my curiosity. I didn’t understand what it was and even after poking around the internet, it looked like something I wouldn’t be interested (ha!) so I ignored it. But since I was drowning in feels after reading Grabbing your hand, dragging you away novel, I needed a filler. So I somehow found my way to MDZS again.

The Founder of Diabolism in a nutshell:

From Novel Updates page:

As the grandmaster who founded demonic cultivation, Wei WuXian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was backstabbed by his dearest shidi and killed by powerful clans that combined to overpower him.

 

He incarnates into the body of a lunatic who was abandoned by his clan and is later, unwillingly, taken away by a famous cultivator among the sects—Lan WangJi, his archenemy.

 

This marks the start of a thrilling yet hilarious journey of attacking monsters, solving mysteries, and raising children. From the mutual flirtation along the way, Wei WuXian slowly realizes that Lan WangJi, a seemingly haughty and indifferent poker-face, holds more feelings for Wei WuXian than he is letting on…

[Novel] Grabbing Your Hand, Dragging You Away (执子之手,将子拖走)

grabbing your hand dragging you away

I have fallen in love with a novel.

A Chinese novel to be precise.

As my first foray into Chinese novels, I randomly picked up Grabbing Your Hand, Dragging You Away. The synopsis is just so intriguing I couldn’t resist. I considered other novels but my mind continued to wander on this title until I finally gave in.

Translations thanks to XIA0XIAO1MEI:

I am a princess, moreover, I am a fool of a princess.

 

Born in the imperial palace, my appearance is as average as that of the white radish and cabbages in the fields. Throughout the four seasons of the year, my face is always displaying a dull expression, eyes forever shrouded in haze.

 

But in reality, I know of the secrets within this palace.

 

Including hers, his, and theirs.

 

Just leisurely living my days comfortably in the palace like this, I firmly believe I can continue to play dumb to the end.

Who wouldn’t want to know how this kind of main character plays out?

[Manga] Castle Mango 1-2 (キャッスルマンゴー 1-2)

cm1

If I hadn’t known, I wouldn’t have guessed that the Konohara Narise who wrote Castle Mango is the same one who did Don’t Worry Mama and The Man Who Doesn’t Take Off His Clothes. Castle Mango has a more solid plot than their previous works.

Shirosaki lives in a love hotel his family owns. There he meets the AV director, Togame, when his production team shoots in their hotel. Right from their first meeting, Shirosaki doesn’t have a good impression of the director. What’s worse is that he learns that Togame is gay and is fond of his little brother Satoru. Shirosaki decides to take an action at the cost of what?

[Novel] The Man Who Doesn’t Take Off His Clothes

That is a long title. /sigh

First off, am I the only who doesn’t get the hype for Konohara Narise novels? Don’t Worry Mama is average, this one is almost the same. Heck, I can’t even sympathize with any of the characters.

[Novel] Don’t Worry Mama

Synopsis:
From the back of the book:

If you were stuck on a deserted island and you could pick one person to keep you company, who would you choose?

 

For Yuichi, it would be anyone but his uncooperative, self-absorbed, good-for-nothing boss Imakura! But as fate would have it, the two are mistakenly left on a deserted island during an important research expedition. Yuichi would prefer to drown Imakura in the sea with his bare hands rather than listen to his constant complaining. But as the days fade into weeks, Yuichi finds himself craving Imakura’s company more than civilization itself.

 

Will the two find a forbidden love in this tropical paradise? Or will Yuichi and Imakura live out their lives stranded on a deserted island with the one person in the world they can’t stand?

 

Originally published as a short story, Don’t Worry Mama returns as a full-length novel with an all new bonus story, “Present.” Written by Narise Konohara, one of Japan’s best yaoi novelists, this story of “love on an island paradise” is sure to delight.
