this is mostly just male mc without female leads like "love interests" or harems :)

Korean Novels #1 - #25
Chinese Novels #26 - #53
Japanese Novels #54 - #70

* There might be some sexual tensions towards side characters but mostly it views the improvement of the main characters
* Novels like this just focus on the plot and battle towards mc's main goal and shenanigans but most of the novels here are my male protagonist 'to be read' and I hope you guys find something that suits your tastes <3 so yeah happy reading ^^)/

      oh haha~ unfortunately TEIO is yaoi and the list specifically said no romance ( romance centric =  yaoi) although the story and arcs are good it is not fit for this theme of lists.

      though thank you for the suggestion I'll make sure to read TEIO again ^^
