Epythymy's 'manly' top.

Epythymy's 'manly' top.
As far as I'm concerned, you can't trust in the overall novel ranking. 

I am sure there are different reasons for this development. And without a doubt one of them is a female readers' activity. What I mean is that they are much more active and generous in rating, comment section, lists. etc. If you are looking for proof you can try sorting all the novels by rating and here you will mostly see yaoi, shounen-ai, josei, shoujo, romance. Also, many other novels can't escape their influence. I mean, nobody said that they can't enjoy popular seinen novels, right? I am not saying that it's something bad or trying to stop them, but as a normal, straight guy, I can't enjoy the situation either.

So here comes my personal, manlier than even me, top of the novels I've enjoyed reading!

I can't really describe myself as a picky reader, but I have to spend quite a lot of time looking for something that satisfy my preferences. Which are mainly: 

1. No wimp/beta protagonist. (Life is hard as it is. I see no reason to read about someone's indecisiveness and useless tears.)

2. Protagonist with at least average level of intellegence. Otherwise it's too annoying to read.

3. As a litrpg genre fan i've got a soft spot for stories with different kinds of systems.

I guess that's it.

This one is a mix of a detective and adventure genres with mystery elements on top. Its description is somewhat of a sham. I was baited by the 'VRMMORPG' in it, but the whole vrmmorpg thingy here was add by the author only for the sake of convenience and to mystify things.... more>>

Another vrmmo novel. The notable thing here is the contradicting reviews about racism in it. I wouldn't try to change your view of it or whatever. Because honestly I don't give a damn about it at all. There is nothing new in its existence. Every country has some meme about it. My own included. I, personally, is a fan of the white flag and baguette! Not because I am a racist, but cause it is hilarious (IMO).... more>>
