    Whenever your reading a light novel/magna or watching an anime and it has a lot of good things about it. Yet the mc claims he is no hero but goes and saves the damsel or he gets beat up by a female enemy but does nothing back but when a guy does it he goes ape? Or not even hero but just your average dude and then becomes the biggest simp when Mt.Juggelar walks by?

    Guess I was wondering if that turned you away from some good novels/anime’s/magna(and if so which ones if you recall)

    Those kind of novels are often associated with harem trashiness and the MC being oblivious of all the girls falling for him. I avoid the harem genre so no I don't see that often.

    As everyone else said, I look at the Harem tag, and don't read it. There's also the fact that most of what I read has cold MC's, so, no simping.

    Yeah, while I want my male protagonists to respect women, I can't respect those who let someone walk all over them just because they have two balls on their chest. I mean, where did their own balls self-respect go?

    I've seen a lot of people talking about avoiding beta MCs and honestly, having a protagonist being a weak willed person is never great to read about.....
    Reading about protagonists who literally act like slaves to the women or men they like (even FMC novels where they completely rely on the ML to do literally everything after the relationship gets confirmed) feels pretty boring and lame.

    Did you even need to ask. The question answers itself just like no one would like their little snake cut off, excluding the exception s of course but normally who in their right mind would like simps

    To solve this tiredness I recommond reading absolutely evil protagonist. While some of them are too edgy, some of them turn out to be the most rational people you will ever see in a novel.

    There is a really slow novel with amazing world-building called Warlock Apprentice.
    Be warned, the pace of this novel is not kidding, 50x slower than your average novel. This means that the 1k chapters that are translated could have been shortened to 20. However the world-building is amazing and while the protagonist is a fool in the beginning, at roughly 800+ chapters you will have seen him grown. A tiny bit.

    The second I can recommend is Netherils Glory. A dnd inspired novel with the protagonist being a Chaotic Neutral Magician. Naturally only out for his own benefits.

    If you like slice of life coupled with hints of fanfiction, I recommend Super Detective in another World.

    I particularly start reading novel due to the developement of the MC from the loner, otaku, useless, normal(often simp) he is to a better person...........though 97% of the time i lost my patience of reading how they act(simping most of the time) when it comes to women at the point i want to rip the dimensional walls and beat them up to make them understand, but often i think a bit more carefully(after my wrath has increased without limit and have achieved some sort of enlighment) sometimes some of the MC have serious issues to deal so that they could act better when it come to women, most of the time is due to women treating the MC as if he was garbage or a really lack of confidence(sometimes extreme) due to comparing themselves with the usually "perfect" heroine or some trauma of the past and i know that issues like this are very hard to deal with, especially on your own, so i can understand or rather tolerate more the MC......of course, i have limits, if the MC exceed it i will stop reading that novel or if don't like something else.
    To be honest if there is a good development in the MC i believe i can withstand the simping....i have limits though....

    Actually, the majority of the MC develop due to meeting the heroine and falling in love with her and start to change due meeting them more due to reasons(plot) or due to wanting to be close to them, but honestly i'm starting to get a bit tired to see the same pattern, i really want to see one where the MC changes for the better without falling in love with anyone.

    Oh god! I especially hate those strong fmc’s who become so weak and needs saving! Like I did not just read 300 worth of chapters to see the strong , independent fmc become so weak the moment she lays eyes on the ml! Like it’s an instant drop for me.

    Well yes double standards do exist so honestly where's the surprise lol. I don't really hate them but there's always a fine line between immaturity and just mere naivety.
