Novels WITHOUT ROMANCE OR HAREM

Novels WITHOUT ROMANCE OR HAREM
There are too many novels with cliché romance and harems with annoyingly useless girls. Reading them gets extremely tiring. There are too few novels with absolutely no form of romance or harem. Here are some novels I've found to not have romance/harem or have an harem/romance theme that didn't affect the plot of the novel to the point of it being annoying

Feel free to recommend novels that fit the criteria, arigatou^o^

P. S. I really hate snakes, they creep me out but I liked this novel. Now when I see a snake, I start comparing them to the MC so not as creepy, still creepy though.... more>>

    I have this weird thing about myself. Once there's an inkling of sexual relations or mutual feelings (no matter how minimal it is), I immediately lose interest in that novel and no matter how hard I try to ignore it, I can't get that interest back. I've dropped a lot of novels because of this.

      Read Reincarnation Paradise, the MC is (chaotic neutral) ,cold with zero romance and he sticks to it, isn't anywhere near a simp and dont read the chapters that say edited as the one that did it changed how the MC is portrayed to have some feelings so f*ck that guy, he shouldn't have any sense of sympathy to anybody as it was said in the raw, f*ck that editor.

      @Aiwhatever lol I actually just started reading it. I'm at the attack on titan arc. The guy is f*cking crazy I'll tell you that. I didn't know the edited chapters was the watered down version, thanks.

      I'm exactly the same way!!! Especially with harems. I don't like seeing women being written as toys. That just seems disgusting on so many levels. There were a few good ones, but after a while I just lose interest, no matter what.clear.png

    I suddenly realised something, like a particular trend nowadays. There are novels that start out extremely well, so well that you won't want to stop reading even for a minute. They'll have a good plot, good character development and just generally good. Then it starts getting too long, that the author wouldn't know how to stop or properly finish the story. It'll then lead to a mess, where the author will just sum up the ending in a single chapter. And it would end up being rubbish. So the story completely flops and disappoints everyone. That's f*cking annoying.

      That seems like how Solo Leveling ended. The ending was unexpected in that it started immediately and ended in 5 (?) chapters. Idk, it seemed rushed.

    My good sir, I implore you to add Reverend Insanity. Also, where do you read reincarnation paradise?

    I recommend you the Hero's Return! Up until now (chapter 343, the last one translated to English), I've not seen any romance and I really like it!

      Hmm I have thought about adding it for a while now, after all he doesn't exactly take any of the ladies seriously.

    I haven't finished reading a few of the novels so if there are some that have annoying romance and harem in the later chapters, please let me know and I'll remove them. Y'all can also recommend novels that aren't on the list. Thanks clear.pngclear.png

      Yeah I know. But in my opinion, it happened after the actual story. So this makes me quite conflicted in a way

      @Jewellia97 well that's the best part, it isn't part of the actual story, but instead it's extra after the main book ends so in my opinion this is a smart move.

      @Aiwhatever very smart move indeed. Cause I love the novel, it'd have killed me to have to drop it cause of some unnecessary romance. clear.png
