    I've read enough novels to atleast guesstimate that 80% of all novels i read where the main characters are written/designed by the authors as a super genius but when the story has a plot device where you can tell what level of a genius someone is either by physique/blood lineage/natural talents/etc.. bullshittery always happens.

    I don't want to insult authors because i'm just a leecher who reads translated works for free but am i thirsting for good authored stories nowadays.

    JP novels have that cuckboy MC trope/fetish they have going on.

    CN novels have that masochistic fetish where they have to put down the MC in so much unnecessary stuff just to move the plot forward. Then again, the first few times i read where the mc is putdown and first few times of bitchslapping that subsequently happened afterwards were satisfying to say the least but now its getting boring.

    Anyways, i'm looking for novels where the Main character is a genius and author doesn't pull out plot device where they mislabel the MC as trash only to get bitchslapped multiple times in a single arc and then finally they recognize MC as genius and wants to nurture him but ofcourse MC has to go to higher stages cuz cultivation. Only for the same shit to happen again and again every new arc that happens.(heaven above heaven bullshit)

    I would suggest you to try reading novels that have been printed on books, instead of low-quality webnovels.

    If i wanted to do that, i wouldn't be asking for recommendations on novelupdates.

    If you've read webnovels then you can already tell the difference between a printed fantasy book and webnovels.

    I can read a webnovel story with thousands of chapters in a few days nonstop, cant say the same for printed ones.

    Indeed, thats what forums are for.

    times like these when you need comrades with different experiences to consult.

    Tbh i would already be satisfied if i can find novels without author bullshittery. Like Emperors domniation, strongest senior brother, library of heaven's path, warlock of magus world, etc.

    There seems to be a trend, the stories with the most author bullshittery involved are probably the ones with thousands of chapters already translated and less than 3.5 rating in nu(mga is an example).

    I just wrote a reply mentioning HSSB, too bad it's stopped translating, still there are atleast 1 thousand chapters available for new readers.

    For history's number 1 founder, i just cant get over the fact that it seems like a fanfic to me. Call it personal preference but i just don't like reading fanfics.

    For King of Gods, i've read it way back before but i stopped at the point where there were outsider/students challenging them at their school gate. Mostly the detailed review are scaring me away.

    Sums up novels from RoyalRoadl.

    Most of them are famous, infact, i have probably read all famous novels there and that got me burned out of RRL.

    now i have this stereotype of RRL novels to be 'dropped/unfinished' novels.

    I really don’t remember why I saved this particular novel in my “favorites” tab but it is left there to remind me to come back to it in case the author decides to write more:

    Forgotten conqueror on royal road... I really don’t remember if there is cultivation like in CN novels but I do remember there was something xanxianesque about it...

    Dropped? Just the translation, right? Only translation? The raws are completed, no?

    Edit never mind, you were talking about royal road, I was scared you were talking about the Chinese 233 one...

    So, "JP novels have that cuckboy MC trope/fetish they have going on, and CN novels have that masochistic fetish where they have to put down the MC in so much unnecessary stuff just to move the plot forwardI like your logic", I like your logic and I am thinking of what you think about other types of novels, say for example the KR ones?
