Announcement: Dropping The Adonis Next Door

After a lot of thought, I have decided to drop The Adonis Next Door. My update frequency hasn’t been too good and I think that there is probably a very high chance that it will be picked up by Qidian. This author seems to be pretty popular with Qidian and their translators – they’re already translating 3 of her novels now (and the translation quality is also really good).

I deeply apologise to all the readers who have been eagerly waiting to read this story. I just don’t want to waste my time on translating something that will probably be translated again in better quality. It will also let me devote more time on translating on How To Say I Love You.

Chapters 156-160 have already been translated so I will finish them off and release them in the next day or so. Chapter 160 will be last chapter I will release of this novel. Edit: Realised how close I was to completing 100 chapters so chapter 165 will be the last chapter I will translate.

My deepest gratitude to all the readers for all the encouragement and support you’ve given me this entire time. Thank you so much.

  1. Ahhhhhh, nooo 😒 😭😭😭😭😭. As a silent reader who out of sheer desperation would even check sometimes 3-4 times a day for an update, I am gutted to hear you won’t be continuing with this story. I think that your translating is excellent (some stories you can tell are translated as they don’t flow all that well – but yours you’d never tell), one of the best I’ve read. I hope that someone else (hopefully as good as you) will pick it up very soon to continue.
    On the flipside it’s great you are going to continue with ‘How To Say I Love You’ cause I’m also hooked on that and have been champing at the bit for more of it as well.
    Thanks for all your translating so far, look forward to the next installments when they come.

  2. Oh, it is a sad news 😦 Nevertheless thank you so much for your time and efforts you have spent on translating 100 chapters of this C-novel! I appreciate a lot all your hard work!
    I wish you all the best in your real life and in your other projects.

    1. I’m not fast or committed enough – there’s no way I’ll be able to translate at least 2 chapters everyday like they do.
      There have already been some people who have asked the Qidian translators to translate this (https://www.webnovel.com/book/10028861305003905 – lonelytree -translator of Mr CEO, Spoil Me 100%), and lonelytree has agreed to ask Qidian if they can. The other translator (paperplane -translator of 2 of this author’s novels) will probably finish A Billion Stars Can’t Amount To You in a few months time, so I think it’s really likely that they’ll work on Adonis Next Door next.
      But I promise that I’ll try to not leave you guys at a big cliffhanger.

      1. I went ahead and made a Pick Up Request on Qidian’s forum (since it hadn’t been mentioned there for a few months). I’m glad it will likely be picked up, and I’ll read it… it just makes me feel a little… icky… using Qidian’s site.

        1. I feel the same way – don’t like how it feels like I’m supporting such a shady company (but so long as you don’t spend any money or watch ads, they don’t gain anything from you). And, if it’s either lonelytree or paperplane picking it up, we can be sure that the novel is in very good hands (fingers-crossed that it’ll be either of those two, or someone else who’s good since they have some questionable translators there).

      2. to be honest there are translations there that are almost like a monthly ‘village girl as family head’ forr one. i think they only require more if you do that special locked thing.

        don’t know why I’m trying to convince you to keep going with this one. i don’t even like it. much more prefer ‘how to say i love you.’ definitely focus on that one. yep. yep. ji mian all the way!!

  3. To be honest I’m actually so disappointed and wish you’d continue translating, you’re so good at it and who knows when Qidian might start translating Adonis next door, But I respect your decision and thank you so much for updating this much. Also I went on the Qidian website but nothing is in English, where do I find the english translation of those novels you mentioned?

    1. Sorry for the late reply. The english site for Qidian is webnovel.com
      Novels are:
      Living With a Temperamental Adonis: 99 Proclamations of Love: https://www.webnovel.com/book/10028861305003905 (not yet released)
      A Billion Stars Can’t Amount to You: https://www.webnovel.com/book/9484290206002605/A-Billion-Stars-Can't-Amount-to-You
      Bringing the Nation’s Husband Home: https://www.webnovel.com/book/8360425206000005/Bringing-the-Nation's-Husband-Home

      I highly recommend A Billion Stars Can’t Amount to You, it’s probably my favourite out of this author’s novels.
      As for Bringing the Nation’s Husband Home, I dropped this one because I couldn’t stand any of the characters.

      1. Thank you so much, It’s alright I understand that you won’t always be free. I saw a million stars can’t amount to you recently and I’ve been unsure but thanks to you I’ll definitely read it. I can’t stand Bringing the nation’s husband home either, the male lead and female lead piss me off. more than 600 chapters and not one of them has the freaking mind to just confess. I’ve never read the novel but I have read some chapter’s of the comic and watched some of the anime but it literally frustrated me so much that I dropped it.
