My all time favorite stories that I have read through NU. I mostly enjoy Japanese novels over Chinese or Korean novels as I find Chinese/Korean novels tend to be overly long and unnaturally drawn out to the point of tedium. 

I tend to avoid novels that I feel are highly sexual or too edgy as they just make me cringe too much. I believe the novels I read are generally of a mature tone that treat their audience with respect without being too overbearing or sad. I find that many of the stories that market themselves as "mature" on this site tend to be excessively depressing or just plain violent. I have no problem with depressing truths or violence in my stories if it has a point or some value to the plot but I hate when stories add that type of stuff just to make the story seem more mature. I read books to be happy and for personal enjoyment, so if I don't feel better after reading something, I won't read it. I have also read way too many novels to be able to stand any excessively cliche stories that just reuse plot element from other stories with new gimmicks. 

If it sounds like your preferences match mine, this might be the list for you.

If you agree with my list, but think i missed a novel please suggest it to me (not so much so that I can actually add it, but rather because I am looking for good novels to add to my reading list).

My all time favorite novel. It is long but totally worth it. The world building is epic, the protagonist is amazing, the tension is interspersed with genuinely funny comedy, and the drama and scale of the story expands wonderfully as the story goes along. The story starts off quite simple, but grows to be a true epic with many overlapping and diverse perspectives on the same events to make them seem all the more special and truly meaningful.... more>>

If you watched the anime for this and didn't like it, so you decided to skip this novel, you would be doing yourself a HUGE disservice. This story is so much fun to read. At times, it is truly hilarious and, at others, you will be maniacally laughing along at the truly ridiculous moments. ... more>>

I wouldn't be surprised to find that this is the first story on the list of novels that you haven't read before. Not that it is a hidden gem, but, rather, this story is rarely recommended to those who like the other novels on this list. I believe this is a mistake though. Don't just write this story off if it doesn't look like something you would normally like, you will thank me later. It is also pretty short so if you feel you are in a novel rut and can't find anything that feels fresh, try this one out.... more>>
