Rebirth of the Top Villain
Dingji Fanpai Dashi Xiong | Rebirth of the Top Villain is both an exciting and hilarious story to follow. It feels like any xinxia donghua that we had with an OP main character.

It was written by Kinoshita Nakui and published on Webnovel.
I Might Be A Fake Cultivator
Wo Xiu Di Keneng Shi Jiaxian | Alright, so here’s another funny and entertaining Chinese manhua for fans of Da Wang Rao Ming. It feels like a parody at first, but it shares elements with many comedy donghua and manhua out there. So, we have a hopeless MC who was saved by an immortal god from a loan shark only to find out that he had been pranked. Now, this is a story that dares to be a cultivation story but tries to defy its cliches but still remains grounded in it.
