Qidian charts – Most popular of 2015

For this special set of qidian.com charts, Lingson and I have a chart that actually doesn’t exist on qidian.com! Using data pulled from the site, we have the “trending” chart for all of 2015, from which you can see what was most popular last year on qidian.com.

For the original post on novelrankings.com, click here. P.S. We are going to adjust some of the names of the charts to be more accurate, so the “trending” chart name will probably be different next time.

Title Colors Legend:

  • Black: Novel translated or in translation.
  • Orange: 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 English title will take you to its respective detail page (if it’s already in the database).

42 thoughts on “Qidian charts – Most popular of 2015” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

    1. I’m sorry if I don’t quite understand. But Amber Sword is listed with black color, so it should be on the “translated” list, and when you click on the title, you will get detailed info, and in the detail page, the active translation site link is also present.

        1. Oh, sorry, my mistake.

          But the detail page is correct, I’ve checked it.

          Sorry for other inaccuracy. I’m currently rewriting all the scripts, so the database updates might be delayed.

    1. It’s possible that SS might be listed in the previous years rankings.

      Maybe DB will make a poll to ask if the readers might be interested in the novel rankings for year 2014 or even earlier.

    1. I’ll agree only so far to say that IET is not an adrenaline junkie’s go to author. I have found his work to be a nice side dish to other, over trope’d, Dragon Proud Sky, cookie cutter, trash-this-I, your father-that, testosterone driven misogyny parades. Wouldn’t you agree martial brother? *cups hands and slightly bows with an open and friendly smile*

    2. IET has almost all he novels on the all time top charts. He just wasn’t writing a novel until later 2015 if I’m not mistaken. So no chance for it to be very high

  1. How does Qidian compare to other web-novel sites in terms of readership? I don’t remember their names, but I know that there are at least a few other large sites that host different series and authors than Qidian.

    1. I think that Qidian is one of the largest novel sites, although maybe lower readership than 17k.com. Maybe DB can give us some enlightenment? 🙂

  2. In case any of you are wondering how the chart was compiled, basically, we combined the votes data for the “trending” rankings from January 2015 to December 2015. So, it’s the total votes a novel gets during the whole year.

    If you want to check the data, it’s simple to do. For example ISSTH, just count the votes it gets from January to December 2015, and you will get the number 213,043 as shown on the chart.

    And at the moment, it will also the only rankings type that we can compile for yearly chart, because Qidian still provides the archive for those earlier monthly data. As for other types of ranking, the data is reset every month, so it would be impossible for us to get older data like the data from 2015. However, in the future, since we keep the data collected in our own archive, we will be able to compile a yearly chart then.

  3. This is a really nice gesture and a great help to the community. Much appreciated…That being said, is there a way to get the teaser projects annotated as such? Not pushing, just shamelessly suggesting.

      1. I did not really look into it, it was just strange, DE has the same vibe as CD to me.
        If you think i accused you of fake data providing, I must apologize, that was not my intention.

  4. Wuxia Rebirth or Martial Hero Rebirth as the translator called it is being translated here on the Wuxiaworld forums with 21 chapters already translated, but is here listed as untranslated..

  5. I don’t think that “I’m Really a Superstar” is being translated. Gravity Tales just put up a teaser, but it’s not being translated. I can’t wait until someone does, it looks really good. Thanks!

  6. Hello, is there an all time rankings as good and detailed as this (I have checked novel updates rankings, its not based on
    categories like above) thanks in advance.

  7. I think it has a lot to do with the translation quality of issth, that it is at the top of the charts. It also doesn’t have a lot of translation notes treating us like we’re dumb. That’s one of the reasons I like it alot. I also like en gens other stuff that I’ve read its a pity that xian ni is so piecemeal, though wang lin reminds me of meng heo alot. Or the other way around since i think xian ni was written first. I like his newest novel seems like it’s going to be fun. Thanks for posting this list gives me more books to pillage while I’m waiting for updates. Because machines make me have a headache.

  8. I’d have to disagree on more than half of the novels listed as top, seems people are either masochists or likes reading the same repeated revenge/lucky mc turns alpha over and over.

    As for IET, I’ve been saying this for a while now and to the people i recommend novels to, if you read one of his works you’ve read them all. CD was one of the first novels I read, but I just couldn’t stand reading through the others. I also hate when authors recycle same worlds with same concepts over and over. Once a novel ends, keep it that way, don’t need another damn story with same concepts hapenning in the same world with slightly different outcomes.
