    Is there some kind of genre shift right now? why heck are my front pages filled with yaoi or shounen ai? I even add a release filter to exclude yaoi and shounen-ai from my front pages! somehow almost every CN novel I click always got Yaoi tag even the KR one! only the one is not JP harem novel.

    I tired reading harem and I don't want to read a yaoi novel... can someone explain to me why a novel without Romance tag is so rare today?

    No? Did ya really use series finder correctly? I used to read novels with no romance tag. Make sure it does not have the Romance as sub plot too or something.

    I think you may have used the filter wrong. It looks like you used the filters in reverse so now you only get BL novels. I use the filter and I have it set up that I only get BL on my front page.

    If you are talking about searching make sure you click on the genre twice so that an x appears. This will exclude shounen-ai and yaoi novels.

    How do you have it set up? This is how mine is.

    I filtered [Female to Male] [Futanari] [Reverse Harem(there might be some yaoi on this tag)] [Shounen-ai subplot] on Tags and [Shounen-ai] [Yaoi] on Genre~

    Now I rarely see those unless they're not tagged yet~

    Personal opinion is that BL novels have not just "professional" translators that are pumping out chapters for monetary reasons, but also fans sharing their work mostly for free. Which means a high volume of BL / GL chapters will be flooding the front page. Also means they may not have all their tags set properly.

    The other flavors of novels frankly have fewer fan translators and only a small audience willing to "donate" for new chapters. So output is relatively slow.

    I think your best bet would be to just not write anything in "Include" list as BL has a lot of tags so even if you do not include Shounen ai or Yaoi, the other tags will make them come up.

    If you don't want yaoi or shounen ai just add them in exclude everytime you search for any other genre.

    Shouldnt you ask why are there so less (straight) romance novel these days instead of "why are there so many yaoi novels"? Is less yaoi novels going to increase the number of straight romance? As far as i know tns for yaoi usually exclusively stick to yaoi and not anything else. Maybe ask the straight romance tns if they got anything on.

    Or you can write your own in https://www.scribblehub.com that place doesn't have that many yaoi stuff.

    Demand and supply.

    Also, a step higher than just filtering - make a BL list and put all the BL novels you see in it. Make the list not show up in feed. That way you'll start seeing fewer and fewer. The thing is, you'll always have to update it when new ones come up. Anyway, I do this with lots of things I don't want to clutter my feed - polygamies, JP novels, depraved hentais, tragedies, rape-y BLs, GL, whatever, I got a list to put it in and banish it forever.

    Kinda late, but the release filtering only blocks releases on the Main Page. Your release filtering is set up correctly, but when you're browsing tags, the release filtering doesn't apply. If you're using the Series Finder, you can filter out certain genres and tags as well as search for them.

    Romance novel is fine if it not the main genre but I post this after accidental read BL novel (they don't have any BL tag on it) In the beginning is kinda funny then one of the characters gets possessive on Mc(this sus) then he beds mc... I want to forget this, my brain is tingling and now I know why people want brain bleach :sweating_profusely:
    Thanks, it helps reduce number bl that appear in search

    That's a mess then, but the more you read/see these stuff you become resistant to their effects. :blobpopcorn_cool:




    Which novel is it? :blobhyperthink:
