    I want a novel where the main character isn't human and doesn't think in a way that a human would.

    If you don't read OP and just gimme shit like "reincarnated into a dragon's egg" or "reincarnated into a slime" go fuck yourself.
    I don't want a mc that's not human through physiology, I want one that's mentally non-human.

    Like, something that has a really fucking alien thought process that's far removed from what would be perceived as natural.

    So, u want non human who doesn't think like a human. Will u read a story about immortal gods/deity, demons from hell or something like elfs? Or story about demons possesing human body, Or immortal gods punished to be human?

    Although not much different than human, Immortal gods and demons have that conceit. While elfs sounds like our backwater people.

    Anyway this is about a cicada living as a dragon. Semi Datte Tensei Sureba Ryuu Ni Naru

    There are some novels where the Mc not being human can be a spoiler though. So, do you want spoilers or not?

    Do you have any example for reference? Considering that the writer would be human, and that the readers are human, it's inevitable that it can't be too strange, since how would you even write or read it otherwise? How can a human explain a thought process that can't be understood by humans?...

    There's quite a few novels where MC is e.g. a skeleton and become apathetic / robotic, but I'm guessing that's not alien/foreign enough compared to a human.

    In that case I guess you can give Meow Meow Meow a try, it's a novel about a house cat that's transmigrated to a demon/monster cat (xianxia style), so although I haven't read the cicada novel the premise is somewhat similar.

    ngl, im not too keen about reading a shoujo romance novel. its usually not the kind of stuff i read.
    I'm also pretty sure I won't like it if 90% of the story is just the master telling the cat not to fuck other people like the sypnosis implies it is.

    no idea

    Crimson Dragon. Was reincarnated as a human but forgot his humanity after sleeping for centuries. Now he just eats humanoids creatures and abhors dragons who likes to maintain human form. He's a villain btw. Doesn't give a f*ck about justice or what not
