BingQiu nation, how are you doing?
Pre-orders for the official translation of (墨香铜臭, Mò Xiāng Tóng Xiù) Mo Xiang Tong Xiu’s first novel The Scum Villian’s Self-Saving System (人渣反派自救系统, Rén zhā fǎnpài zìjiù xìtǒng) will be officially translated and released by Seven Seas. See their official statement here.
While the season 2 of the donghua adaptation, The Scumbag System, hasn’t been announced yet, the manhua adaptation was cancelled and there are no signs of live action in the horizon, the SVSSS fandom can finally get something in 2021. On December 7, an official English translation of the novel will be released.
Books released will be UNCENSORED and will include the extra chapters. For those who have reservations if this novel is gay, well… order all the books and find out! Maybe, they’re really just two bros chilling, you know? The books will be available both in paperback and ebook format.
As a fan, I’m so happy to officially support the artist and the author. Multiple fans on twitter even organized to give free pre-ordered copies to spread the love.
