61 thoughts on “Qidian Charts” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

    1. to tell the truth, that novel kept updating from 2005 to 2016 and took so much of my life time to follow, so i gave it up like several years ago. and that number of votes is actually accumulated from the very begining, so it is actually reasonable to get that seemingly-large number of votes.

  1. Nice list, thank you very much. TJSS and IET really write a lot of popular stuff…. Er Gen and HSP haven’t done too badly themselves!

    1. How is this list a reflection of IET’s effort? It doesn’t change the fact that his stories are formulaic. It’s just that his stories remain popular among his readership despite the lack in creativity. They enjoy reading more of the same.

      1. Can’t say that, most of his stories are just clear and to the point. People prefer a story that does not drag things on for 3 to 5 chapters, and I don’t think they lack creativity if they do then what story doesn’t lack it? I think the main reason he is popular is because his stories have fast growth and the characters are well developed instead of having the story focus on just the main character you get some amazing characters and monsters. A lot of books lack that important essence.

    1. Me too. I wanted to know what it was about. Does it have a somewhat settling similar to “Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World”? If yes then I really wanted to read it.

    2. Alternate history.It’s a legendary novel in many people’s view.But I think it doesnt suit for foreign readers,cause it has lots of poems,allusions and traditional words.

    1. It’s your run of the mill vrmmorpg type storyline that’s similar to shura’s wrath except the MC isn’t some superhuman. Government sponsored game where wars have ended and conflicts are settled in the game. Without spoiling too much, the MC is out to make a fortune playing the game.

      I honestly don’t understand the chinese obsession with these type of stories. The plot is always weak and just turns into a summary of gaming achievements.

      1. it’s “all times recommendation”.
        i mean, i would probably recommend you the lord of the rings because it started a genre, but i do not think it is the best fantasy out there now (i mean, so many descriptions and heavy language, you can feel it is a bit old, and the film is well done for once. sadly it cuts the epilogue)

  2. can anyone translate this interesting Novel

    Action Adventure Martial Arts Wuxia

    Ambitious Goals Archery Chinese Martial Arts Determined Protagonist Game Elements Good Sects Vs Evil Sects Leveling Up Marriage Tournament Polygamy Rebirth Ruthless Male Lead Smart Male Lead Sword Sects Swords Weak to Strong Transported to Another World

    1. How many is “first few chapters”? Maybe it’s too early to form an opinion. Give it a few more. I haven’t read it personally but I’m thinking about it.
