The Adonis Next Door: 100 Days of Forced Love

Chapter 111 – 10/03/2018
Chapter 112 – 15/03/2018 *NEW*

23/04/2018 – Sorry for disappearing for a while. I’ve uploaded chapters 141-145 (Edited). Please DO NOT add chapters 141-145 to NovelUpdates. I will be adding them a few days later.

25/03/2018 – So, someone has added the unedited chapters to NovelUpdates. This makes things kind of messy as I know that some people have been waiting for the chapters to be edited before reading. To tell you the truth, chapters 21+ are actually edited. It’s just that I didn’t want people to accidentally add the chapters to NovelUpdates before chapters 113-120 were ready.
However, what’s done is done, so I’ve decided to leave the chapters up on NovelUpdates; it also kind of screws things up for the aggregator sites, which is a good thing – I know that the dates are currently scrambled on NovelUpdates, please don’t try to correct as I want to confuse the aggregator sites.
Anyway, I will continue editing the chapters and put some note or date somewhere to indicate which chapters have finally been edited.
I will probably just add the new chapters (135+) onto NovelUpdates whenever they’re released now.
In the future, please don’t add any releases to NovelUpdates. I will add them personally.

The Adonis Next Door Manga Adaption

Did anyone know that The Adonis Next Door now has a manga? I’m not sure when it started but there’s around 80 chapters now. Chapter ~130 is around chapter 59 of the manga. You can find the English translation of some chapters on YouTube.

My thoughts:

The art is pretty but I think I prefer the novel. Qin Zhiai feels a bit more weak and timid in the manga than I expected. I guess this can’t be helped since you can’t read her thoughts but I wish she would look less weak and sheepish when she’s in front of people that are not Gu Yusheng (I expect her to look timid in front of Gu Yusheng since she’s so scared of him, but she should look stronger in front of other people). Like the scene with Yu Shali, the novel described her as calm and collected, but in the manga she still looks weak (http://m.wuyouhui.net/lianai/geqiangyounanshenqiangxingxiangai100tian/124910.html?p=6) – I’m thinking it might be a problem with how her character is drawn – the drooping eyes maybe?

Also, I don’t know why, but for some reason, the artist turned the housekeeper into a young lady with glasses.

And Yay! I got the dress described in chapter 115?116? right – the manga version of the dress is a bit more conservative than what is described in the novel though. Really wish I found the manga earlier so I wouldn’t have had to search all over to work out how it was supposed to look like.

Anyway, overall, it is a good adaption and follows the novel very closely so it’s worth checking out. Based on the chapter titles, chapter 80 of the manga is already around chapter 200 of the novel.

How To Say I Love You – chapter 1

New Novel Project! Warning that this is a Chinese BL Novel, if you don’t like this genre, stay away.

This is the latest novel written by the author of Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil. It’s an entertainment business novel that’s still ongoing ~49 chapters right now. It’s the first time I’ve read a Chinese novel as it’s coming out and it’s torture having to wait every day for new chapters, as well as having no one to discuss it with because my Chinese is too shoddy to leave a Chinese comment so I thought I’d translate it so I can finally have people to talk about it with.

Description

Artistic Synopsis:
There are some people you hate at first but end up liking more and more the more you interact with them.
There are some people you love at first, but the more you come to understand that person, the more helpless you feel.

Normal Synopsis:
The Great Film Emperor, Ji Mian thinks that Young Master Xiao Jiashu is an arrogant, poison-mouthed, spoilt, rich snob who exploits his strong background to ruin people’s lives on a whim. But when he somehow obtains the ability to read minds, Ji Mian comes to realise that Xiao Jiashu is probably the most adorable person in the world.

Simple Synopsis:
The main character and male lead film a movie together and then:
MC: ‘I’m secretly in love with you but think you don’t know.’
ML: ‘I know you’re in love with me but I’ll pretend I don’t know and even start preparing to distance myself from you. But then one day I realise that you’re actually not in love with me anymore. Oh no, I’m in love you with now. Don’t go! Let’s be together!”

In short:
This is a story about the rise of the acting-fanatic, Xiao Jiashu, as he silences his haters and wows the world with his magnificence.

Xiao Jiashu is really cool and adorable. Ji Mian, the male lead, has yet to grow on me yet, but he’s okay. Nothing much happens in the first chapter but I promise you the story gets very good.

Here’s chapter 1. I have no set schedule for this so it’ll come out whenever.
