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!

[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……

[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] Jose Rizal Manga

jose rizal manga

About a week ago, it has been featured on the different news agency about a manga that features my country’s national hero, Jose Rizal. Here’s the summary as taken from MANGA.CLUB website:

In the land now known as the Philippines, there was a time when colonial Spain ruled for more than 300 years. During a period when native Filipinos once called Indios were oppressed, exploited, and stripped of their human rights, Jose Rizal was born on the outskirts of Manila.

“What does it mean to be a Filipino?”
“Is it possible to incite change through knowledge and not violence?”
He thought of those every day.

A doctor, novelist, and a painter who can speak 15 languages, Jose Rizal is a legendary figure who brought about national revolution through one epic novel!

[Manga] The Promised Neverland 1 (約束のネバーランド 1)

The Promised Neverland has been featured and reviewed a couple of times on the Manga Bookshelf. Those posts introduced me to this manga.

the promised neverland

Everyone’s praising The Promised Neverland – which I find absurd. I mean, this manga, with a fairytale-ish title and fisheye-like view on the cover, couldn’t be that good, right?

Well, it is that good.  It deserves all the praises it gets. So good, you should buy it. Now.

What is The Promised Neverland anyway?

Hold up. While I try my hardest to avoid any spoilers. I might, just a little bit, include one here and there. Be warned.

[Manga] Doukyuusei (同級生)

doukyuusei

If someone were to ask me to describe Doukyuusei, I’d tell them that it feels like experiencing a breath of fresh air in the world of boys love. The kind that you’ll never get tired going back to from time to time.

As written on the cover of the book:

A boy met a boy.
They were in a flush of youth.
They were in love that felt like a dream,
Like a sparkling soda pop.
