    Most weak to strong tagged novels are like this. They get OP way too fast due to the stars aligning or some bullshit. I want to see the MC struggle and work to obtain his talents. Thats the best part.

    Same by me. But in some novels, the Mc grows stronger in his realm(some chinese novels) But can still be killed by people 1 or 2 league over him

    Possesing nothing . Even though the MC trains like nuts, he still strugles with enemies that is usually easy for the geniuses..

    Maybe you should try Law of the Devil . I cant say that MC struggles, but at least world doesnt revolves around him. All of the MC's enemies and allies have their own goals that often have nothing to do with the MC. And he is not OP, he has niether talent for magic nor martial arts. MC has to use his head pretty much, if he wants to stay alive. Also, for now there are many enemies that he cannot win or at least fight no matter what he tries. To conclude, it is pretty underrated CN novel in my opinion.

    P.S. The author's naming sence is ridiculous and hard to bear from time to time. But once you'll manage to ignore it, novel turns out to be awesome.

    I agree fully. Nothing too fun about a mc who gets everything just because. Try reading some Korean novels. They are much better than Japanese and Chinese web novels with these things in general. Still, there are exceptions.

    Possessing Nothing, tells a great weak to strong story. The author actually makes it clear that after every advantage the mc gets despite how cliche the developments, he is still talentless. Even after reaching the apex after hell training, the highest level of normal and talented people yet still under the real monsters and grandmasters, he is still called out as talentless by those who know better and if he had talent he could have easily gone beyond the apex.

    It's real good, even that plot twist will leave you wanting more :v all characters have depth, and it's written beautifully, but damn was that cruel... (>_<。)
