WHAT IT IS (SUMMARY FROM TRANSLATOR’S SITE)

The Di daughter of military lineage, pure, amiable, quiet and yielding, foolishly in love with Prince Ding, throwing oneself to the role of a wife.

After assisting (a ruler) for six year, she finally became the mother to the world.

Accompanying him to fight for the country, to flourish the country’s territory, taking risk to be a hostage in other country, after returning five years later, there was no place to fit in the Inner Palace.

The beauty in his arms smile brightly, “Older sister, the country is stabilized and you should retire.”

Daughter had met with a violent death and the Crown Prince was disposed. Shen family who had sacrifice themselves for the country, not one of them were lucky to escape. In one dynasty everything was overturn, her clan had perished and she need to mourn for her children!

Shen Miao never did thought that as a married couple who went through trials and tribulations and mutually assisting one another was just a stage joke to him!

He said, “Seeing that you have followed Zhen for twenty years, will grant you with an intact corpse. Thank this kindness.”

Under the three Chi (1 chi = 1/3 meter) of white silk, Shen Miao made a malicious vow: In the time to come, she will take part in each and everyone’s end!

Upon rebirth, she return to the time when she was fourteen, where the tragedy had yet to occur, her family were still alive and she was still the pure, amiable, quiet and yielding Di daughter of military lineage.

Relatives hiding a black heart, Elder and younger (female) cousins are ruthless and malicious, the new Yiniang is like a tiger watching its prey and the disreputable man that wants to repeat of events?

Family must be protected, the huge enmity must be avenged, the Imperial seat of the country must also be part of the trophy. In this lifetime, let’s see who can beat the others!

But that little marquis from the Xie family, the arrogant and obstinate spear carrying youth, stood biasedly at her side and proudly said, “Just the fall of the Imperial power. Remember this, the world belongs to you. You– Belong to me!”


After Heaven Official’s Blessings, I thought I’d never touch another 200+ chapter novel. But lol, who am I kidding. 😅

This is all thanks to Usagi’s review of this novel, the main reason why I got intrigued and started reading this. While I’ve read quite a few of CNovels already, they’re mostly BL. Stories with female leads are still fairly new territory to me. But I’m glad I decided to read this one because woaaaah the schemes.

Ehem.

Let’s just get to the main post. 😆

[Webnovel] Those Days of Saving the School Heartthrob (拯救校草的那些日子)

拯救校草的那些日子[重生] / Those Days of Saving the School Heartthrob [rebirth]

Author: 蒸蒸与上

Raws: http://www.jjwxc.net/onebook.php?novelid=3423639

Translation: https://www.wattpad.com/story/181344795-those-days-of-saving-the-school-heartthrob

Chapters: 94

Summary edited from MTL-ed copy from JJWXC:

Ji Ming Yue thinks that his last life is pretty good, there is no reason for him to be born again. So when God let him restart his high school, it must be to rewrite the tragic fate of the school heartthrob and his crush Lin Feng!

 

In order to save his male god, Ji Ming is more and more skillful.

 

The first step, in order to prevent the school grass* grades from falling, volunteer to be his deskmate to supervise him

 

The second step, in order to prevent the school grass from being lonely, try to become friends with him

 

The third step, in order to prevent school grass’s bad relatives, help his sickly mother and invite the school grass to have a vacation at his home!

 

One step at a time, very nice!

 

As he was saving, suddenly one day…

 

Lin Feng looked down at him, his eyes clear: “Do you like me?”

 

Ji Mingyue: “No, no, no, no…”

 

Lin Feng: “I also like you.”

 

“…” Ji Ming changed his words. “No no no – I like you too!”

First, if you know a better translation of the summary, or if you know the author’s translated name, please do tell me.

About the school grass thing, Lin Feng is called 校草 (xiàocǎo) which according to this website means “most handsome boy in school.” So if you plan to MTL this afterward, you’ll either see school grass or school god and that pertains to Lin Feng.

Another thing, on MTL, Ji Mingyue’s name can also be Ji Ming. But for this post, I’ll be calling him Ji Mingyue or JMY. For Lin Feng, it’s LF.

Now that’s out of the way, I’m so happy to share this series with you! This webnovel is something I discovered while lurking around Novel Updates forum and it seems like a light read, the kind of read I needed at that time. The story’s not that long plus it’s set in the modern times so it gives me the courage to read through the MTL. (Psst, if you don’t know how to purchase from JJWXC, check out Anonfail’s guide.)

English Publisher: June

Status: Completed

Volumes: 4

Summary: (from the back of the book)

At the end of S volume 3, detective Masaki Shiiba was last seen running away from the hospital room of his injured S, Keigo Munechika. Now, Shiiba has turned in his resignation, bought a gun of his own, and is bent on only one mission — to kill Takanari Godou.

 

Shiiba’s instincts are telling him that Godou was the one who had killed his sister Yukari and is the person responsible for Munechika’s injury. He vows to get the truth from Godou, even if he has to throw away his morals and life to do it. But can he do it? Can he shoot another person and commit cold-blooded murder for revenge? When he finds out more information about Godou’s past, will his resolution waver? And when the young Kiri Yoshizawa is thrown into the chaotic mix, can Shiiba accomplish his plans without any remorse?

Previous volumes here.

Finally! The elusive volume 4 is now mine muawahaha!

Seriously, though, it’s really hard to get a copy of this book. If I haven’t already gotten the first 3 books, I would have opted for a digital copy. But I was dead set on completing my copy. After 48 years of waiting, June reprinted this. Thank goodness.

Anyways!

Here goes…

[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.

[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

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:

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

[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.

[Webnovel] My Wife Always Thought I Did Not Love Him [媳妇总以为我不爱他 (重生)]

rebirth

Randomly picked this up among the translations of Exiled Rebels Scanlation team. I know that they translate Chinese BL novels so it struck me weird when I read this title, My Wife Always Thought I Did Not Love Him <– I focused on the ‘wife’ part and completely disregarded ‘him’ lol. I thought that was a really intriguing title.

My Wife Always Thought I Did Not Love Him

From Novel Updates:

Going back to high school, and meeting your crush once again, XiaYao this time has decided to choose an entirely different route.

{A little preview}
Before rebirth—

Xia Yao: I like you.
Zhou Du: What did you say?

After rebirth—

Zhou Du: I like you.
Xia Yao: I only see you as a classmate.
Zhou Du: ……【But that’s not what your diary said!】

Also known as 《A love affair triggered by a diary》

————-

A car accident made Xia Yao return to his third year of high school, he finally has the opportunity to make up for everything he regrets. The mistakes that have been made can now be mended. So when Xia Yao once again meets Zhou Du, the target of his unrequited love, he decides to choose a completely different route.

 

If you don’t love me, then I’m willing to set you free.

 

However, things seem to turn out completely different than what Xia Yao expected.

 

Refined writing style, dramatic plot and vivid characters. This story is melodramatic, tyrannical and heart wrenching yet so sweet that it brings a dead man back. The returned Xia Yao who thought too much with little to no honest communication causes many contradictions and misunderstandings. Fortunately, the day when misunderstandings cause them to separate paves the way to a sweeter future.

What happened here? 🤔

[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……
