    Title explains all. Let me elaborate.
    • Good Translation (I really hate poorly translated stories with horrible grammar)
    • Strong FEMALE MC that again proves that she is strong not by the author saying she's strong but by her actually showing it.
    • I would like actual action or adventure not something thats purely romance.
    • I don't want her to overshadowed or rescued by any male lead.
    • No yaoi, yuri, ecchi, or gender bender. No palace harem stories.
    • Bonus points if it's survival. I really like survival from female MCs. I want a dangerous environment where the MC is not favored because she's a girl.
    • Something like Doomsday Wonderland, I transmigrated into this movie before, or Adonis.
    • I really like good world building, a wide array of interesting characters, good plot (uk the standard things for a good story in general) but I find there is very few with a female MC. Doomsday Wonderland is seriously the closest thing I can think of and I love it but it was dropped. I also love Lord of Mysteries and I wish there was something else like it but with a female mc.
    • Please nothing like that Japanese one I Was Reincarnated as a spider. It's hardly a story rather a level up monologue. I hate characters that are so unrealistic or have dumb inner monologues all the time.
    • None of those Japanese Isekai with extensive kingdom building, politics, and 90% inner monologue. I've read those with horribly long titles, female mcs that build up their kingdom or land or wtv and I don't like those.
    I know it's a tall order

    Ah, seems like the ones I would have recommended have already been read.

    Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear? Maybe a little light for you but fits the criteria or I Was Reincarnated as a sword? Yes the sword was a male but the MC is a girl. No romance in either case and a decent strong female lead ✌

    Supreme soaring immortal (very very powerful, knowledgeable fmc, no romance)
    Cannon fodder's record of counterattack(Ning Shu) (mc starts from zero, gets into threatening situations all the time but grows stronger all the time. No romance)
    I'm a little white flower in an escape game (mc is not powerful but she is intelligent and manages to wit her way out of dangerous situations. Don't know about romance)

    sigh~~ thx for the recs :bloboh: but most of them just aren't what I'm looking for. I'm craving for a good story not a guilty pleasure, should I just turn to published novels T-T....I kind of get the feeling I'm getting tired of poor story telling and writing. Still gonna be on a lookout for any hidden gems tho

    If you don't mind quick trans, then I would recommend The Female Supporting Role Shows Out.
    Most arcs don't have romance, and with the rare arcs that do, it's very light. I mtl-ed the whole novel, and MC continuously learns new skills and relies on herself to make her way into the world.

    Yeah I read that one loved it so much~ That’s one of the few rare instances where the potential of Isekai is shown
