Qidian charts

Deathblade and Lingson here with another update on Qidian.com’s ranking charts. This time we again bring the weekly “recommended” charts. That means that these are (generally speaking) active novels. In a future post I will provide some more information on the categories and sub-categories! For now, check out the charts!

These are recommendations from registered (unpaid) users. This is an updated version of the weekly charts from two weeks ago, which you can see here. You should be able to see what has moved up or down, and what is new.

Title Colors Legend:
Black: Novel translated or in translation.
Red: Untranslated.Please note:

  • Before beginning to translate any novel listed as “Untranslated,” please do your own research to confirm that it is indeed untranslated. If you see a title listed as untranslated that is actually being translated, or is otherwise listed incorrectly, please notify us immediately.
  • Clicking on the Chinese title will take you to its respective page on Qidian.

47 thoughts on “Qidian charts” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

  1. I wonder how many novels will be picked up because of Deathblade’s translations? The more the better, let’s part-tay!

    Have you thought of translating the ones on the Qidian ladies’ web as well? Ladies like to read web novels too. 😀

      1. XD
        Reich has the same characters as Empire.
        So it will be “My third empire” or “The rise of my third empire”.
        Or it could be “Of the three empires”.

  2. Hey there Deathblade, first of all I want to thank you for translating these charts and of course ISSTH, but I have a small problem with the charts. I’m colorblind and I can’t properly see the difference between the red and black font color properly. I was wondering if it was possible to change either one to a lighter color, to increase the difference in color and make it more readable to me and most likely some others.
    Even with the readabillity issues, I want to thank you for all your hard work!

    1. I was having the same trouble. Increasing the contrast helps quite a bit. If you’re using Chrome you can download this app called “High Contrast” for quick adjustments.

  3. I recently picked up Warlock of the Magus World, and after catching up to the current translations (chp 89), it has really peaked my interest. It’s nice to see it number 1 in its own category.

  4. It is quite strange and inexplicable that Great ruler was around 10th of all novels with more than 30k recommendations in last list but now it is not on any list

  5. “The Legend of the Dragon King” isn’t an adventure in another world. The MC is born in the Douluo Dalu world so it’s just Eastern Fantasy I think.

    “The Rise of Mortal Harry Potter” ?!!!!! Oo

    “League of Legends” lol ^^
    But I’m quite interested in “Dominating the Abyss”, “Divine Shadow Throne”, “Destruction of the Dark God”, “Demon’s Cage” and “Online Game of the Ancient Huang Era”.

  6. Lord Xue Xing, being translated so slowly. I know they are missing editors for it. They went from missing 1 editor to 3.

    They have a list on radiant of projects that need editors

  7. Would you mind adding how many chapters translated of the translated works so you know if you can hit something up have to wait a bit? Also a link to the on going translation would be great if any of the titles interest you.
