    I feel like there are a lot of xuanhuan/xianxia novels being updated on NU, but I've yet to touch most of them. Reason being the synopsis don't really pop out at me.

    So, I'm deciding to ask the fine citizens of NUF to help recommend me some so I can start cultivating into an immortal xianxia fan (bad joke)

    Here is a list of my preferences. Sorry for being picky. Just to clarify, these are just my preferences. The xianxia you want to recommend doesn't have to fit all my criteria.

    • Female MC > Male MC
    • I'm ok with either underdog or OP MC
    • I don't prefer harems... But I'm ok with H scenes. Please, no NTR though ;-;
    • Mainly looking for xianxia with cultivation and fighting and such
    • Good > Evil (I don't particularly hate malicious mcs though... As long as their not spineless and useless)
    • I like character development
    • Romance is good, but I don't want it as a large focus (more on cultivating/plot I guess?)
    • Interesting cast and integral supporting actors if possible
    • I like pets
    • I'm ok with lolis and shotas
    ...I should stop before everyone runs away from my growing list. (Must... Resist... Urge... To add more--!! ......I failed.)

    Some examples of things I've read/am reading and like are: My Disciple Died Yet Again, History's Number One Founder, Emperor's Domination, and Demonic King Chases His Wife (I understand that DKC isn't really "good" per sé, but it's uploaded daily and it keeps me entertained ;v; ).

    I'm sorry to trouble you, and thanks very very much in advance!!

    Most of the xianxia revolve around male mc. It must be hard for you to find one that suits the criteria.

    I dont think there are that many xianxia/xuanhuan with female MC in the first place. Series finder only found me 1 page of xianxia and half page of xuanhuan.. and not all of them are actively translated also.

    There's the female > male, but it seems like it's just a preference rather than strict requirement. And so to be honest based on your criteria. Isn't that pretty much just about any xianxia? State your bottom line. Tell us what xianxia you don't like.

    Please don't give up hope.

    Try The Demonic King Chases His Wife: The Rebellious Good-for-Nothing Miss
    The focus isn´t to much on cultivation thougth more on her overal skills
    and yes it´s a female main.

    The character development is great and the action scenes never get booring.
    The main is smart as fuck and kind of op too and there is a good romance that aids the character developement.

    Transcending the Nine Heavens. Absolutely one of the best stories on this site and by far the best when it comes to character development.
    As long as you can make it to the pavilion arc you will not regret it as you will hooked on it like crack.

    Thank you :3

    I've lived my whole life on the wrong path... The path of a weaboo--!

    Full speed ahead!!

    My eyes are always glued to the brilliant present! Future-smuture, past-schmast. Life is for living in the present, no?

    I know. ;-; Well, Xianxia worlds aren't really optimal for women anyways...

    Feel free to suggest any male mc xianxia if you have any recommendations~ ;v;

    It doesn't have to fit all my criteria. Those are just some preferences. If there really was a novel that fit everything then that'd be a miracle.

    The beginning of my road to xianxia and xuanhuan is tough... ;-;

    But like I said before, it doesn't have to meet all my preferences. I'm flexible enough to make exceptions :3


    I'm reading that actually! I'm excited to read the fight between Su Luo and Su Qing, but I've heard it takes 20 or so chapters... I don't know how to feel about that...

    I'm reading this as well~ And, I'm enjoying it very much! If you know of anything similar, I'm all ears :3

    I haven't read enough xianxia to judge, actually... But if it's dark and heavy, I probably won't like it.

    Yeah, not much help here. Sorry.

    Thank you, I will definitely check them out!

    Thank you! I'll check it out right now! Hooray for weekends!

    ISSTH. MC is well built, side characters actually play an integral role in the story and aren't just background scenery to make MC look better. And I out of everything I've read from here it covers relationships (not just romantic but familial and friends) the best and has been only story to bring a near tear to my eye thus far.
    Also try Xian Ni, True Martial World, martial world and the classic Coiling Dragon.
    P.S ISSTH has a reputation for its slow beginning, which I personally didn't find that bad, so if you read it and feel it's not for you just try to bear through first hundred chapters. Most here who have would say it's well worth it.

    Contractually obligated, regardless of request, to recommend ISSTH
