    Technical stuff like unreadable translation cause I need to know what happens, and I’m not going to risk my brain to try and understand what’s going on. I’m also not fond of TL comments in the middle of chapters because it just throws me off when I’m focusing on the story. Also sometimes they’ll have legit conversations...

    As for novels themselves, if it’s boring to me. A lot of isekai are boring to me nowadays because they’re almost all the same (not all, in case I accidentally attract someone’s ire or something). Same with some villainess reincarnation/transmigration novels. Only a few bring anything new to the table, and a lot just feel like “Hey, I like this trend so I’ll write one as well” and it’s 99% the same as the other novels in its genre.

    I can usually hang on for a bit longer if the MC isn’t always dumb, but if they are... I drop it like a hot potato. Another are those that have the typical abusive, and cold CEO MLs that treat the MC like shit but then again, I never drop them because I never pick them up in the first place.

    Yes, many times I have wanted to drop these novels after the sad ending. But I have also finished @@

    I don't like it when authors insert a dumb character just for the sake of comedy, especially if it is the main character. Some of them are so dumb to the point of being braindead, I'd drop the novel without a second thought.

    Also, harem. I don't have a specific reason for this, it just isn't my thing.

    Lastly, reincarnation novels. I've got a lot of recommendations for this type of novels (esp the korean ones) and the plot is basically the same: mc had a horrible past, he/she somehow went back to their childhood after their death, then they plan for their escape/revenge in this new life. I'd avoid them if I find the story too generic from the summary.

    When a story that has good potential at the beginning slowly disappoints me that i can make up a better story in my mind with the story's setting while reading it.

    I have quite a high tolerance, but when things start going crazy and everyone thinks it's normal it's just so confusing to read

    I hate when I get fairly committed to a novel and then the author starts throwing some pure/impure misogyny around, and then I remember... Oh yeah, chinese lightnovel.

    Harem, especially in fantasy world, I mean in that world, is it common to have many wives there, there's no explaination, and I mean it looks natural !! like I mean...doesn't it look weird to have many wives in monogamy world?? If it's normal I will bear with it, proceed to read it. And MC only interact opposite gender, never with same gender, like in that world only exist single female and she will become his member harem.

    Asshole MC , I want to make harem !!
    Too much overbearing nonsense
    Forcing too much
    Double standard
    I instantly dropped it when MC reborn and end up with the same asshole ML, like u died once because of this guy and u married him again?

    'Too much fanservice', i mean it is better to get fans service like claymore than love hina or negima sensei...

    Idk why I dislike romance I only love you when MC has kind family, but MC sacrafices their family for their love one. Like... I get it u love him but u sacrafice good family that kind and nuturing u until old ages???? idk maybe just me.

    I avoid story like "hey im A and I want to fell in love" something like that.

    I want more platonic story TT
    I'm picky but not at the same time
    I mean as long it is good or curious I'll read it. I read BL, Straight, GL.

    there is some novel i read that changes so much, that makes me want to ask the author "why dont you just make it a different novel from xxx chapter" since from there it seems i'm not even reading the same novel anymore.
    the worst one is when the novel is close to ending and i dont like how author executes it (like manowa).
