probably adding only japanese and korean novels... reading list for chinese novels is on my jjwxc account

prefer clingy/yandere female leads and not a huge fan of harem

one of the best romance novels that I have ever read is Imouto Life by Hitoma Iruma which is somehow not on here - too taboo to be translated? edit: longer thoughts on a novel will be posted as a review under the novel itself

i would suggest that you ignore the "low ratings". there is a high barrier to entry for this novel because the first 40 chapters essentially act as the setup - the kidnapping and an unexplained obsession of the ml by the fl.... more>>

a decently fast-developing novel that doesn't require much thinking to read through. the "bucket incident" that occurs at the start to bring the two characters together might appear contrived, but it is explained in the later parts. ... more>>

      it's on noble mtl. it is generally quite readable, the main issue being that the fl's name is constantly translated to "galaxy", so just substitute that mentally

      anyway, please be aware that it's a pure romance novel, which is why my rating is subjective

      @nouni Hey I'm all for it, I don't like drama in my romances (not necessarily drama in general, more like that soap-opera, k-drama stuff), that's why it's been so hard for me to find a romance I like. Thanks for the link.

      I don't have a shortcut for you as I read the Chinese translations. If you can read Chinese, I'll pass you the link.

      I was thinking about translating it from Chinese myself, but it's such a good novel that I don't want anything to be lost in translation (particularly when it goes from JP -> CN -> EN), even if the quality of the Chinese tl is amazing.
