    The title of this pretty much says it all. I’m looking for Quick Transmigration novels with FEMALE LEADS, that don’t really depend on the Male Lead. Preferably if the Female Lead can hold her own in a fight and doesn’t need saving. I’m fine with no romance. Overbearing and tyrannical Male Leads get boring and disgusting(?) because at a certain thresh point with these Male Leads, it just turns into an extremely toxic and unhealthy relationship as most of the novels I read with these overbearing Male Leads lead to unnecessary killing, going against the consent of Female Lead which gets sickening, and the destruction of many side character lives which usually goes against the point of the Quick Transmigration.

    So I know you said novels, but would you be open to Manhua? Cheating Men Must Die is pretty good, turn brain off and read.

    There’s also this one quick(?) transmigration where there’s no romance iirc “Quick Transmigration Cannon Fodder’s Record of Counterattacks” -I didn’t particularly like this one very much maybe because it feels weak to strong not Mary Sue enough for me LOL

    I like “Quick Transmigration: Heroine Arrives, Woman Rapidly Retreats!” and the translation is very well done, but there is a male lead that I don’t really remember is too overbearing or not

    I don’t really like controlling murder men that much either- how do you feel about non quick transmigration or palace drama type stuff?

    First let me wish you good luck.

    If I'm not mistaken Ascending, Do Not Disturb have a pretty chill ML. He is a little heavy but it's way easier to like him and not even close to the usual "you can't have pets, children, friends, family or plants because I will kill them all if you even think about them for more than 5 seconds" that makes me want to burn people...
    Anyway, it's been some time since I last read it so I don't give guarantees

    Quick Transmigration with Female Lead Aura - MC’s personality is super hilarious, and she pretty much handles situations by herself and does what she wants. There’s romance, but no “set” ML, as every ML in each world is a different one.

    There's a few of them that have been picked up recently, the Fine-Female one mentioned earlier is what I found after the one I just linked too. They're good.

    Here's another: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/the-female-supporting-role-shows-out/

    The ending is great in that it can be either refreshing, heartwarming, or tragic depending on how you interpret what was going to happen next. Reguardless, I loved the individual world stories in these. They made a lot of sense and didn't always follow the cliched path, or at least plodded a non-well-beaten path.

    I'm currently MTL'ing this: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/the-female-supporting-character-is-obsessed-with-science/

    It's really funny how she takes the long-view to have the governments deal with her tasks because they want her discoveries.

    -No romance, MC if an awakened NPC counterattacking world hoppers

    https://www.novelupdates.com/series/quick-transmigration-with-female-lead-aura/
    -Lots of funny stuff, ML is more like a side character. MC is so hilarious.

    https://www.novelupdates.com/series/quick-transmigration-snatching-golden-fingers/
    -No romance, MC can snatch golden fingers after tasks

    https://www.novelupdates.com/series/transmigrated-canon-fodder-please-calm-down/
    -With romance, ML hops with MC. But ML is basically a decoration ❤

    https://www.novelupdates.com/series/the-female-supporting-role-shows-out/
    -MC is not op everytime, but she's hard working and smart. So she suffers while learning then became OP. Only few arcs would have a love interest and they dont do much.

    Thanks you guys! I’ll be sure to check the recommendations out!

    The ML for this novel isn’t really overbearing despite his identity, he’s just.... whipped? He’s a nice guy and quite like-able though!

    Oh, thank you for reminding me this manhua existed! I’ve forgotten it for a long time
