    I'm looking for good Female MC. I have standards.

    Some of which I've loved are:

    Side Character Transmigration: The Final Boss Is No Joke
    Ascendance of Bookworm
    Kenkyuu
    Unruly Phoenix
    Reign of the Hunter
    Kumo Desu Ga, Nani Ka?

    That doesn't really describe the standards...
    How about Miracle Doctor, Abandoned Daughter: The Sly Emperor’s Wild Beast-Tamer Empress? It's cute, for a xianxia...
    You could also try Black Blood Tales. There are two stories in here and both have a female MC with a unique personality and both MCs are very extreme in what they do. Kinda like Kumo Desu Ga, Nani Ka?
    Then you can try Peerless Alchemist. MC's pretty decent, I think.
    There's Mesmerizing Ghost Doctor, which is rather funny, along with Genius Doctor: Black Belly Miss, both of which have female MCs you really don't want to mess with.
    The Good for Nothing Seventh Young Lady is also something you don't want to miss.
    Oh, and just for some laughs, you can try Succubus-san’s Life in Another World
    I'll add some other ones, if I think of something later...

    I've read almost everything you mentioned, most of them, I dropped mid-way, or when I caught-up and dropped, cos I couldn't remember the characters' names after a while, and can't bother re-reading hundreds of chapters.....

    What does that mean? Does it mean they're not up to your standards or does it mean you're not looking for ongoing series..?

    Or maybe you're looking for series with less than 10 characters?

    It means after 1000 chapters even the author starts forgeting characters and most of those ones are hard to tell apart from eachother since those kind of stories are more or less the same

    Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement / slice of life like Bookworm + some fights
    + the other works of FUNA (I Said Make My Abilities Average! caution the comedy is kinda random and i quite don't like it
    I Shall Survive Using Potions!)

    Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear kinda like Kumo with a OP protag in fights but it's go more in slice of life soon / recreates food of modern world / every stuff okay with her / would be a contander of heartwarming sadly it dont have any really fluffy moments / also MC is surrounded by 4 lolis as of latest chap

    I didn't suggest everything and some others are gender bender or maybe don't fit what you want.

    I really recommend "Iris" just don't forget to bring handkerchiefs.

    Are you trying to find a new novel or bashing those generic novels? That information is not helping us

    I recommend:-

    ■ Albert Ke No Reijou
    ■ I want to live my second life
    ■ Reika-sama
    ■ Akuyaku Tensei Dakedo Doushite Kou Natta.
    ■ shift: the side character heroine
    ■ Youjo Senki
    ■ the chronicles of the weakest wind mage

    There's more but you can read that first XD

    It means I will read the generic ones ONLY if they are good, and I have nothing else to read.

    I'm surprised there are people who can drop the Black Blood Tales halfway through... I recommend you continue reading them, they aren't even up to a hundred chapters yet, but I do hope they get there, the stories are too addicting to stop now~
    Well, that aside, what about Dragon Life, or Half-Dragon Slave Girl? Heck, even Hakai me no Yuuri is interesting, it's even finished~ And, if you like that, you can try Dragon's bloodline, if not, then how about Demon Girl ~Tale of a Lax Demon~?

    A lot of the novels hosted on Volare have strong female leads. It looks like you enjoy humorous stories with strong female leads, so I'd suggest:

    My Disciple Died Yet Again - Completely translated. Starts out with some gag comedy but rolls into serious plot fairly quickly. It's not quite as funny as Side Character Transmigrations but it has a good plot and parodies some of the same tropes.

    Doomed to be Cannon Fodder - Another Volare translation which is complete. Parodies some transmigration tropes but is more of a serious romance novel with some adventure thrown in. Some of the MC's reactions to things may offend western sensibilities, however, so you have to take it with a bit of a grain of salt. However, it's pretty funny and the MC is entertaining.

    If you're interested in an actually scary MC in an imperial court setting, I'd recommend The Concubine's Daughter is Poisonous (AKA The Princess Weiyang). However, this one isn't humorous and the translation depends quite a bit on untranslated Chinese terms, so it can be frustrating to read in English. It's revenge porn and it gets quite macabre past a certain point. There are a good number of chapters translated, but I think it's only about 1/4 or 1/3 through the original story at the moment.

    Along the same lines of rebirth/revenge novels, there is also Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage, but IMO this one isn't as good as The Concubine's Daughter is Poisonous in terms of a strong female lead. This is better if you like romance novels.

    Strong and depressing: The Legend of Chu Qiao: Division 11’s Princess Agent. This is a Qidian novel, which might turn you off as it takes credit to read past a certain point. This is a story about a former secret agent who transmigrated and has to navigate a crapsack ancient setting with some very nasty characters.

    Someone above recommended The Dreamer in the Spring Boudoir. I want to warn you about this one based on your reading list. Although the MC in this one is psychologically strong (not OP) and it's a very well-written story with interesting, three-dimensional characters, it gets REALLY depressing. I quit reading this one about halfway (in the original language) because I couldn't deal with how much crap the MC had to take. Because there isn't much comedic relief, you really have to be buckled in for this one.

    If it helps, things get a lot better for the MC in the second half of the novel. I think that's why I mistakenly think it was a happy story, because I remembered the ending better than the middle part of the story.
