    I am becoming tired of face slapping, romance with bunch of drama to pad the series to have ton of chapters, revenge stories and weak to strong cultivation adventure CNs...
    Unless a pro that knows chinese tell me otherwise i am sure there are other chinese (or maybe korean) web novel series out there that are slice of life /or/ wish fulfiment, in short something light hearted like "Martial Arts Master".
    My question is, why don't the translators pick up more slice of life/light hearted stories ? Is it they find them boring compared to cultivation and face slapping ? Or is it because qidian got the rights of near every web novel series in china ?



    I really want to see more cooking series (with male protagonist) being translated. For some reason the only series with cooking focused theme that is actively translated right now is just : Daddy Fantasy World Restaurant / and the other series "Summon kitchen" even though i heard that there were other cooking system series out there.

    Btw Raws Daddy restaurant got 1400+ chapters and still growing 2ch/day, it's a masterpiece and google translate is really strong. So for the readers of it, stop suffering waiting for the new translation of qidian english and go google translate it, it's really worth it.

    Not reading Supplier because of the reviews.
    Gourmet of Another is not bad but boring after a while. At least in Daddy restaurant there was a loli and a wife that appeared later that made the series really interesting.

    I never pay attention to reviews despite many novels having terrible reviews, I always end up enjoying them.

    For a slice of life CN with male MC try Cultivation Chat Group.

    Despite there being other types like 'The King’s Avatar', 'The Legend of Sun Knight' and such, but cultivation and face slapping moments are like the trademark(in a sense) of CN so that's why I suppose that they are popular

    I've just given up on Chinese novels. Tired of the plot just jumping from point to point or making no sense because those neutered morons that hold office got offended by something. Didn't know SJW was thriving in China's elite.

    Also while I was still reading it GFS was good... However I can't bring myself to advocate reading on qidian so it doesn't get my rec.

    Try "Martial Arts Master", just pure wish fulfilment that you wonder if this series is truly chinese. No arrogant young master, no love rivals, no mean family in law, in fact no enemies beside the adversaries in tournnament. Try it. This series is unlike any chinese series ever, it's sweet like none other that you will puke sugar after you are done. It just takes a small/medium while before confession but even before that was not bad.

    I haven't found anything better than The Amber Sword yet and sometimes I really wonder if author is a korean pretending to be chinese.

    I don't mind system novel, but if any system novels that has "failing them will be met with punishment." this sentence, it just instantly killed my interest.

    :notlikeblob: I mean, are there any actual punishment in CN novels?

    I think I am actually looking for system tragedy novel like
    埃尔德兰的天空 (The Sky Of El Delan) where MC lost everything he loved and cared one by one because he failed to complete the missions. He also lost his limbs and was eventually killed in the end.

    Have you tried reading other novels from the same Author of Martial Art Master?
    How about Pet King, My House of Horrors and Chronicles of Primordial Wars?

    Not as fluffy and good.
    No romance i think and a review said he gets an annoying bird/parrot.
    Not a fan of horror.
    No romance or romantic subplot tag so meh. Also not a fan of "MC is in a prehistorical/stone age world" plots.

    I want something fluffy/relaxing ! with action as subplot if necessary ! Also don't bother to recommend a "MC is in chatgroup of immortals on his phone" kind of series because reviews say bad stuff on them, i only read the Black technology onebut even then the romance was kinda bad after the courting phase.

    And I recommend my translation Sword of Daybreaker
    It tells a story to build a civilization and actually there is no real bad guy,all the parties seem to be the villain boss are all for against the disaster,they fight just because of different ideas and faith.
