wuxiaworld vs web novel

For webnovel, there is one most important problem: the previous novels are basically free, but webnovel uses the "spirit stone" currency system to unlock some popular chapters.

As for my point: If you are a student or not rich, then you can choose other web novel sites to read stories that need sprit stone.

If you like the author's novels and have a certain ability to pay, you can support the author appropriately.

  • This is a really helpful list, so thanks for sharing! But I have to point out that BoxNovel and NovelFull are actually aggregator sites that copy and paste translations from other sites like WuxiaWorld and volare to post on their own sites. This is not only illegal at times (since they don’t own the rights to the original raws or translations), but also unfair as they steal ad revenue and views from the legitimate translators.

    If you check either of those sites, you’ll 100% find works from other translation groups being hosted there without permission!

    I don’t think those two deserve a spot on this list. Otherwise, nicely done!

    • Thank you very much for your sincere comments, I am glad this article is useful to you.

      For the two websites you mentioned, after I did some research, they are indeed aggregator websites as you said. This is very unfair to the real translators and original authors. I will revise this post later.

      You are welcome again.
