☯ ISSTH Chapter 523 ☯ (and weekly Qidian rankings!)

I'm happy to reveal the project I talked about earlier. As many of you know, quite a few of the novel translations you read on wuxiaworld come from the Chinese web novel site qidian.com. Qidian has literally thousands and thousands of novels (maybe more?), making the current crop of translations (not just here, but everywhere) almost a drop in the bucket compared to what is available. Lingson and I are proud to bring some of the recent charts from qidian.com, translated into English. [RWX - I stickied this!  Suggest making this weekly thing a separate post from the chapter release]

I plan to make this a regular thing, where we rotate between various different sets of data, including monthly and weekly charts, all-time rankings, monthly votes and VIP votes, the works. I hope that this will raise some awareness regarding Chinese web novels, and will also provide some tools for translators who are looking for a title to pick up. There are even links to the novels within the charts! Please check the jump for a peek into what was popular last week on qidian.com!

Chapter 523 Translator: Deathblade Contributors: Madam Deathblade, anonpuffs Proofreader: Yascob, ISSTHNo1FanBoy, Lingson Meme Archives: joeljbright Meme: Anonymous Sponsor: Sofoklis Schortsanitis

Many, many thanks to Fellow Daoist Sofoklis Schortsanitis for bringing the 1st sponsored chapter of the week!...

These are top tens for weekly "recommended" rankings. Some important notes:

1) Some of the title translations are extremely accurate, because I looked up the information on the book. Some titles are mere guesses on my part regarding, for example, plural v. singular, or Chinese characters that can have multiple meanings, etc. Please feel free to point out any mistakes. I did a lot of the translations during my breaks over my work weekend, so I freely admit that there may be some mistakes. Any translator who picks up an untranslated title would do well to research the name of the book to ensure that the title is translated correctly 2) This list is only top tens. There is much more data available on Lingson's website.
