What was the length of the longest BL you read? (chapters/volumes)


Addis’s Answer: Longest BL I have ever read is definitely The Legendary Master’s Wife (731 chapters). The second-longest to that would be Mecha Slave Contract (304 chapters).

Yep, I’ve read both of those and they’re both amazing, thank you for translating. I’ll read ANYTHING, I read a lot and an a speed reader, so I love a long series. I’ve read a lot of the really old mangas that are still ongoing – Viewfinder, Junjou Romantica, Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, etc. I’ve happily reread them too. I love to read.

Mmm… O think it’s LMW as well or Heaven Official’s Blessing, I don’t kno wich one is longer XD

January 30, 2022 9:53 am

I think the longest I’ve read is Koisuru Boukun

January 30, 2022 10:40 am

For me it’s loser wife(382 chapters) and LMW. TGCF too

Legendary Master’s Wife and Mecha Slave Contract. Loved them both.

Ugh, I hate uber long novels.
I did make it through LMW, but vowed never again.
200-ish chapters is the highest I go now before getting bored. Preferably in the 100-150 range.
And that’s for any genre, not just BL.

Definitely, LMW was the longest so far, with TGCF being the second, and I think Mecha Slave Contract as the third longest. I don’t remember the number of chapters for MDZS, but it was long too. There were some super long mangas too, but those are ongoing, and in majority I don’t read them anymore because they started dragging the plot.

Definitely legendary master’s wife. I actually really like super long bl stories (500+ chapters) but they’re very rare ;_;. I like having the options to back out of a story or keep going with it. Some stories i just really like and want to keep reading and am super sad when they’re really short.

Woah yeah, Legendary Masters Wife did take some commitment hey… Sometimes it’s almost like I wanna reread it but do I really wanna commit to 700+ chapters?

January 31, 2022 2:50 am

For me it was also LMW(and TGCF)… It seems that it’s too long for most people, seeing that pattern in the comments, but to me is easy to come back and read it at least once or twice a year lol

I think it’s The Legendary Masters Wife. And it was damn good.

January 31, 2022 4:37 am

I don’t really remember the chapters, but Viewfinder if I had to pick. It’s the wait, I swear. My patience is running thin and we got

latest Viewfinder chap.
Akihito trying to kill Asami?!
Whatever Yamane sensei decided to spice up the drama between the main couple.

The longest I have read so far is Rebirth of the Supreme Celestial Being with 774 Chap. But for me, Legendary Master Wife, 731 Chap., is the only one I have found that’s so long and I can actually re-read it many times (I’m currently on my 4th time)

After that, I consider: long at around 300-350 chapters, medium leng at around 200-205, and short leng at around 100-105. Less than that are quick reads, but by no means that diminishes they value to me.

January 31, 2022 7:02 am

I read everything that comes my way, so I can’t remember them all, but I’ll try (Rebirth of The Supreme Celestial 774 Ch), (The Legendary Master’s Wife 731ch), (MoDaoZuShi), (The Glory After Rebirth 535ch), ( My Sassy Crown Princess 524ch), (Young Military Rarities 493ch), (Mecha Slave Contract 304ch).

For me it’s Er Ha, The Husky and his White Cat Shizun 350 chapters. Then Of course TGCF 252 chapters. I’ve been curious about LMW, but keep postponing since it’s more than 700 chapters.

January 31, 2022 12:25 pm

Mecha Slave Contract

January 31, 2022 6:49 pm

Yes! Longest novel for me is Legendary Master’s Wife (still love it)~ I don’t even think I’ve read another novel that’s 300 chapters long (although some were close to it; my friends all ask me how I never get bored of reading novels with that many chapters 〒▽〒 I’ll socialise soon, don’t worry)

The Legendary Master’s Wife.

February 16, 2022 6:17 am

Legendary master’s wife(731 chapters) is the longest that I’ve read so far.

February 25, 2022 6:44 pm

I got the same answer as Addis, but I didn’t finish reading The legendary Master’s wife I stopped at 500+ chapters. But I really like the Matcha Slave Contact, I read it 3 times when I was waiting for the next then I went back to start reading from the beginning by the time the story ended I already done it 3 times.

March 20, 2022 6:16 am

It was also The Legendary Master’s Wife

September 20, 2022 9:12 am

I have read those two as well -great books! I think I could add Heaven Official’s blessings. That’s a really long one too…

Official LMW release!
