    It's not like I hate romance, it's just that whenever the mc gets together with the m/f lead, I loose all interest on the story.

    I'm in dire need of novels with no romance at all. I accept platonic relationships and all kinds of genres.

    are you looking for a specific language as well? like kr or ch etc?

    I would suggest chronicles of the heavenly demon, it's a pure revenge story.

    No-romance/platonic novels are the best! Here are my favourites:
    Legend of Sun Knight (western fantasy)
    Chen Yue Zhi Yao (fantasy/rebirth/transmigration)
    The Yu Brothers’ Case Book (supernatural/mystery/horror)
    No Hero (supernatural, futuristic)
    Fu Xing Dong Lai (magic/demon academy)
    Residence of Monsters (magic/demon academy)
    Dominion’s End (supernatural/post-apocalyptic)
    The Real Awakening (supernatural/psychological/thriller)
    Unique Legend (magic academy)

    You can view the recommendation list in my signature for more as well.

    I sympathize with you greatly on this matter. Recommendations:
    https://www.novelupdates.com/series/the-female-supporting-role-shows-out/
    This one is about a system, a girl who’s ascended past love, and her living various lives independently.
    https://www.novelupdates.com/series/the-novels-villain/
    This is a pretty typical reincarnation type, but it’s enjoyable and mostly without romance (though I suppose it’s hinted, but honestly there isn’t any actual action).
    https://www.novelupdates.com/series/maid-will-go-on-through-thick-and-thin/
    This one is just a friendship isekai story that is astonishingly fun, even amongst the others in the genre.
    https://www.novelupdates.com/series/isaac/
    This one is brutal. There isn’t anyone who’d love the man besides crazies. He wouldn’t love anyone either.

    This is a fun misunderstanding comedy, with some darker glimpses. There’s no romance, it’s still really good though,
    https://www.novelupdates.com/series/the-job-of-an-imperial-concubine/
    This one is a bit complicated. The reason I put this here is because the characters in it never truly love each other... it’s alll just an act. I honestly really like this one though, because the MC is really sensible and cool headed, and it doesn’t even feel like a romance because of her thoughts. It’s not one.
