Table of Content

The anime and manga industry is thriving throughout the world. Now even, other countries have started to make their own manga. In South Korea, these are called Manhwas and in China, Manhuas. It’s pretty important to differentiate between these two. Don’t get confused, lol. Well! I used to get a lot.

Now, Cultivation Manhua. Wait! You don’t know about cultivation Manhuas? I’ll tell you a bit about them. Cultivation Manhuas basically revolve around the ultimate goal of becoming the strongest by gaining skills and fighting strong foes. The end result in most of them is the MC becoming some immortal OP God

Still! There are differences, like the addition of some other genres like romance, isekai, etc. This makes them even more interesting. I’m pretty sure Isekai genre lovers would surely love them. So, let’s take a look at some top cultivation Manhuas. These Manhuas are rated according to my personal likings, of course. So, just enjoy the list.

Manhua Storyline:

Betrayal! It hurts sometimes, am I right? And it hurts even more when you get betrayed by your loved ones, like your brother, sisters, and even mother. In most such cases, the cause of betrayal is power or money.

In the case of this manhua, it is power. The MC of this manhua, Shi Hao, was supposed to become the supreme leader. However, he was betrayed by his brother and mother as they stole his supreme bone. Something like that!

And I think you can guess what happens next. His parents then abandoned him and he was left to live alone in the village of his ancestors, The Shi clan. This marks the beginning of his story to become strong by his own willpower.

 He also did some amazing things for humanity, which you have to find out by reading it.

Manhua Storyline:

Sometimes, it is necessary to read some realistic stories. I mean, MCs always get some mysterious power-ups in cultivator Manhuas, don’t they? 

However, this manhua follows the story of a young man, who is not special in any sense. Still, he decides to become a cultivator as he steps into a fairyland. He is like a guide that we can follow to become the strongest cultivator without any mysterious powers.

I really liked the concept of this manhua. The characters are pretty likable, and I’m sure you’ll like it too. OOO! I should tell you, just in case, this manhua is Shoujo Ai. So, keep that in mind before starting it.

Manhua Storyline:

Well! I’m a huge fan of uniqueness and really love unique manga/manhua. You might’ve already guessed at this point, Lmao!

It makes sense tho, don’t you ever want to read something that makes you wonder what will happen next? Most manhua in the industry have the same repeated storyline, and it makes them a bit boring.

However, this manhua will not bore you. It follows the story of a child born without any internal powers. And you know that parents only love children who have some potential. So, to get his father’s attention, he chose to grind painful external skills. 

But, you can’t become the strongest with just external skills, can you? So, for him to become stronger, he needs a power-up. And, of course, he gets it in the form of a mysterious crystal. Pretty Unique, right?

What’s worse than getting bullied? Well! Most of us here have experienced bullying in one way or another. And I know it hurts. So what? Y’all want to take revenge? In real life, it’s really difficult. However, in the world of manhua, it’s somewhat possible. 

The same is the case with our MC Yun Che. He got laughed at by the world and was even poisoned on the night of his wedding. However, as his soul was going back to the heavens, he somehow received the powerful blood of an Evil God

And I think you can guess what happens next. He gains some extraordinary abilities and turns the world upside down with his powers.

Another typical yet amazing story. You see this pretty often that a strong family loses its status, and the MC, now, has to recover the lost glory of the family. Happens a lot, right? In manhuas and anime.

But what makes this Manhua different is the character development. The MC, Linley, is one of the best protagonists I’ve seen in many years. His concentration towards his goal and motivation is just amazing. And that too in a world full of dreadful creatures.

This manhua follows the story of Linley as he tries to recover the lost status of his family. He fights some really powerful enemies and also makes really faithful friends. Overall it’s a great adventure.

Han Li wasn’t that talented, however, by sheer willpower and some mysterious powers he gained by drinking a potion, he became really OP and even challenged Immortal beings.

Yess! This Manhua is about Bai Xiaochun, a pretty ordinary and mischievous boy. He has some really weird habits, like stealing chickens, planting bamboo shoots, and others. And one important thing, he is always getting struck by lightning. Lmao!

The comedy in this Manhua is really top-tier. Well! It is supposed to be a comedy Manhua following a weird path for the MC to become OP. So, I suggest you read it, for a change, of course. Changes can be really amazing sometimes.

Conciousness Out meme Manhua

Manhua regarding martial arts is always a treat to read. I mean, martial arts are just that amazing. However, the journey to becoming a strong martial artist is not that easy and requires sacrifices. But, you can’t be considered a manhua MC if you don’t get some mysterious powers.

The MC of this manhua, Yang Kai, is a weak and immature sweeper. However, one day he finds a black book which marks the beginning of his journey as a martial artist as he attempts to climb the Sky Tower.

The plot might seem a bit bland. But the characters are really engaging and attractive. Are you planning to read it? I should tell you just in case that it is a long series.
