    Y'all know what time it is. I want to watch/read more content that features evil protagonist. Please do not recommend shows that have protags who are "fake evil". Manipulative and scheming is a plus.

    I want evil MC's (preferably male) that scheme, who only look out for themselves, and who does whatever it takes to reach their goal. No BS MC who says they only look out for their own self interest, but the first female or whoever they meet makes them contradict their own character.

    Please do not recommend anything that does not have the qualities that I am looking for. To give you an idea of what I'm looking for here is a list of Anime/Manga that have my seal of approval.

    One Outs, Code Geass, Youjo Senki, Akagi, Pet, Brutal, Death Note, Classroom of the Elite.

    Edit: You can also recommend shows where the protagonists are not evil but aren't good either, and they only focus on achieving their desired goals (i.e no harem rom-com).

    Edit#2: This can also include korean dramas, I've watched a few and was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked them.

    Edit#3: Only looking for shows/anime/manga not novels.

    p.s: If this thread seems familiar to you ding! ding! ding!
    your right! now here's a cookie:cookie:.

    Well what have you already read? If you aren't specifying, you'll probably get the same answer like Reverend Insanity and etc.

    I'm really looking for manga/anime not novels. Hence why I only listed anime/manga that fits what I'm looking for

    For kdrama, flower of evil. The ML is a psychopath and a serial killer. I haven’t watched the whole show but so far it’s pretty good

    I also recommend the smile has left your eyes, the ML is an anti-hero and a murderer, also
    it has a BE, bad ending
    it’s really sad too, it’s a melodrama with hints of thriller and mystery.

    Was about to recommend this lmao.

    This anime's not really my taste but I agree that the MC's very evil.
