    I don't know what to read next, I kinda like cultivation novels, I like kingdom building, I like action, I like a likable MC. No harem (unless its lowkey like in Hail the King), and no MC who doesn't care about anyone and is a total douche.

    This is what I have read, If you can find something similar to one of the novels, please let me know "xxxx novel is similar to [insert one on list] because..."

    LIST:
    - Hail the King (liked it, cultivation & kingdom build)
    - Sovereign of the Karmic System (liked it, cultivation, drama)
    - Black Iron's Glory (I stopped at ch 40 because it's really slow and the MC doesn't become strong)
    - Trash of the Count's Family (stopped at 60 because the MC doesn't become very strong, instead he just masterminds cliche plots)
    - The World Online (eh stopped very early)
    - Omniscient Reader's Viewpoint (cultivation, really liked it, stopped midway cause of translator changes, ANNOYING name changes, bad translator midway)
    - The Novel's Extra (eh, stopped at 80, heard author messes up later so don't want to experience it)
    - The Reincarnated as a Slime (Good)
    - Spider Desu nani ka (good)
    - Accomplishments of a Duke's Daughter (good)

    UPDATE: Tried the following
    I am the Monarch: Tried up to ch 40, really uninteresting, SUPER cliche, MC "fortunately" and "randomly" comes into contact w/ ppl that are important all the time like what?
    The Tutorial Is Too Hard: Super werid, i tried trust me, but rlly offputting MC
    Reverend Insanity: Bad MC
    Stellar Transformation: Kinda Cliche, meteor falls and MC is like "oh, ima go check that out!' also kinda a douche
    The Legendary Mechanic: enjoyable
    Cultivation Chat Group: nah, not into comedy

    Please let me know, thanks!

    Cultivation novels hmm
    Have you read all the novels by I Eat Tomatoes?
    They are all very good and suit someone who wants to see a character grow plus they do not have harem.
    Eg, Stellar Transformation
    There are others as well such as The Path Towards Heaven.
    Just search by the authors on NU.
    Just look for Mao Ni, Er Gen, I Eat Tomatoes, Cocoon Cow. I'm trying to remember the rest.

    Oh, I'll just say that I liked The Tutorial Is Too Hard, although it's not really similar to any of the ones on the list ^^

    Yeah, Reverend Insanity's mc is kinda insane? He's a jerk in general. CCC is comedy mostly.
    Having read The Legendary Mechanic, I thought it was good, I highly recommend!
    Currently combing through my bookmarks for suggestions.

    Ok, I couldn't find anything except The Amber Sword and Soul of Searing Steel.
    TAS has a harem. Not sure if it's considered low-key or not? The focus of the story is definitely on MC's power growth.
    SoSS has a battle junkie mc.
