    Can anyone recommend me with a good novel having a swordsman as a protagonist. Something like the focusing on the Way of the Sword. It may be chinese, japanese or korean. I tried reading Chaotic Sword God with its protagonist having taken a fancy to stabbing his enemies throat with a sword. I didn't quite like it because of the throat stabbing parts.

    I've read Overgeared and I really like the Sword Saint class of Kraugel. I've also read Book Eating Magician and I had taking a liking to its Sword vs Magic content. With its swordsman as my personal fav. Sadly its BEM and it focuses on magic. I hope there's a protagonist out there who solely specialized in the sword. It would be preferable if its Korean and with a romance to boot.

    Lyle Walt from Sevens uses quite a few different weapons + magic, but he has a main focus on swords.

    Seeking the Flying Sword Path is literally the whole time about sword this, sword dao that. Use sword to get wife, use sword to kill bad guy, use sword to save loved ones etc.

    I've read Sevens but I find it a bit too boring. I'm already done with DE and am currently reading Seeking the Flying Sword Path, sadly its flying sword and not sword wielding.

    Yes. I love Mushoku Tensei a lot but I've completed it a long time ago. Sigh.

    Zhan Long maybe? he's a swordsman both in game as IRL. unluckily the story gets your head spinning it's sci-fi and even has mutants and cultivation with stupid cliche rich boys trying to hunt mc down.

    Why not the Reincarnation Of The Strongest Sword God? If you read Overgeared and liked it, this novel is a bit similar but concentrated on the sword class and the protagonist's sword is very unique, there will be some interesting developments in the future.

    I've already read Zhan Long and I agree with you there.

    I would like to give it a try but I'm doubting if I should as a lot of people says its similar to PMG. I don't like PMG as it is full of arrogant young masters. Wherever the MC goes there will definitely young masters who will go and provoke him. It just gets repetitive.

    ...I honestly haven't read a CN where the MC doesn't primarily use the sword. Maybe ISSTH, but apart from that, pretty much everyone does. Sword dao is slightly more rare, but only because not all CNs go into dao. pick a random CN. The MC uses a sword. Pick a random LN. The MC uses a katana or magic. Wish authors would have a bit more variety...

    That's true. But I'm looking for something which dabbles specifically in the sword. I don't like those all-rounder ones who specializes in practically everything else just to make themselves OP. I want an OP Swordsman with his only focus is the sword. :3 Hehe

    Something like Everyone Else is a Returnee but with a sword-wielding protagonist.
