    Yo~

    When I first started reading novels online I often used to check out Baka tsuki and read a few Japanese novels. But with translators disappearing over time and with me discovering NU, I found lots of Chinese novels and started reading them more and more. Now I barely read Japanese novels.

    So recommend me some Japanese novels please. I like fantasy genre with things like magic, game elements/systems, dungeons etc.

    Also you can recommend Korean novels that are similar. I’ve started reading several of the more known ones and I enjoy them. Hopefully I can get recommendations of hidden gems that I’ve missed~

    Here’s my reading list for reference~ http://www.novelupdates.com/readlist/?uname=akki

    Thanks~

    also Overlord is one of the best japanese novels and you don't have it though its not really game element but very close.

    but ya you should read The Tutorial Is Too Hard you have it on your list but still on chapter 1 an read Valhalla Saga.

    The Tutorial Is Too Hard sounds lame but its amazing truly one of the best game elemnt novels out there.

    Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka?


    it can be a bit hard to read at the start but there's a nice guide in the reviews of which translations to swap to when for the best reading experience.

    I like Gomen ne, Onii-sama (JP)and Tales of the Reincarnated Lord (CN). Also recommending The Amber Sword although it's CN.

    For those fantasy JP that I've read:
    Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite
    Genjitsushugi Yuusha no...
    I Was a Sword When I...
    I Work As A Healer In Another...
    I’m a NEET but When I...
    Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka?
    Nidome no Yuusha
    Reincarnated as a Dragon’s Egg...
    Reincarnated into a Werewolf,...
    Sairin Yuusha no Fukushuu...
    Sougen no Okite ~Shii Yatsu ga Moteru,...
    Many of those were abandoned by me cz update taking too long. But, the chapters should have accumulated by now...

    For KR, i've only read The King of the Battlefield beside DD.
