Nice to hear from you again :) the category of "murim" is very vast imo, there are lots of subcategories of murim-style works that take place in modern times, in the future, or in the past where murim was originally supposed to be set as well as lots of variations in categories besides setting. I'm happy to recommend a few, but if you have trouble finding many with the wuxia/xanxia tags yourself, you can also try expanding your search using the historical and martial arts tags.
As I'm not 100% what exactly you're looking for, I'll just recommend a few I like real quick.
"Nano Machine" is a great one for the past setting, as long as you like OP protagonists. He does work to get stronger, but he's also handed a lot of that strength from his descendant from the future via nano machines... it's not as campy as it sounds.
"Murim Login" is one I find very fun as a back-and-forth mix between modern and past. I'm also a big fan of things like "time travel" and "virtual reality" though this one is more than it seems in the summary (don't want to spoil it tho.)
If you have any interest in shoujo or otherwise female lead centric manhwa I would recommend "Precious Daughter of the Greatest Martial Arts Villain" for a cutesy one or "Master Villainess the Invincible!" which has a new name that makes it sound terrible if you ask me but I really enjoy it.
I hope at least one recommendation is a good read for you :) hope you have a great day
(P.S. you might want to change your banner, I'm relatively positive anime planet has rules against nudity.)
Hey, thanks for the comments and the question! If I had to pin down why I like Overlord it's a mix of things really. I hope you don't mind me rambling a little bit since you asked.
As a game nerd, I liked the setting where a long-time player of an old VRMMORPG who was rich and OP suddenly found themselves in a new world with those abilities but moreover I'd have to say I'm a huge fan of how their NPCs came with him. I like a lot of cliche tropes like isekai and VRMMORPG to a certain extent but what initially hooked me was just the fact that these previously fictional characters (the NPCs to Suzuki Satoru AKA Mononga were fictional, i mean) were suddenly alive with their own personalities. I liked the psychological aspect of how he was forced to adjust to the whole new world, though I didn't like that his emotions were stunted so much due to his race- it would have been more interesting to see a full reaction but it's played well as it is.
Then I liked how the NPCs (who were effectively newborns really, just with programmed "adulthood" in them) acted like overeager, evil little gremlins due to their karma stats and they all just decided to take over this new world, basically. The world building is really well done, the way the author fleshed out the kingdoms and every individual character was well done. They put a lot of effort into the amazing musical score that has a lot of dramatic pieces in the anime and I can't stress enough how well they nailed the feelings they were trying to portray in many scenes.
That said there are a few things I don't like about it. Like that he changed Albedo, though I don't think he would have if he'd realized what would happen next. And I'm not a fan of Albedo or Shalltear hanging off of him when I feel like all the NPCs are basically oversized, overpowered children. There are a lot of darker aspects and themes as the series goes on that often make you pause and realize /wow they really went that far/ but it's still a story that makes me want to see it through to the end even if I don't like every single thing that happens in it. And I want to list more but I'd be worried I might spoil things for you so I'll stop there!
Apologies in advance for any typos or weird, out of place words autocorrect might've done and i might've missed, typed on phone :)
