Genre: Action, Adventure
Chapters: 61

Manhwa Storyline:

Builder is a Manhwa that takes place in the near future. Humans can now dream about whatever they may desire. People that want to become Gods in this dream world are called Builders—so why does our MC want to be a Builder?

This is a Virtual Reality MMORPG Manhwa that has a lot of fans. But I’m not one of them. Listen, Quote The Anime is all about being honest with our viewers. This Manhwa was not my cup of tea.

I couldn’t get used to the art style and although the plot is fine, I can’t bring myself to put it any higher than this on my list.

But I do have another recommendation if you didn’t like Builder. It doesn’t have a game system, but it has similar aspects to one.

Manhwa Storyline:

I know, I’m the worst. This Manhwa deserves to be in the top 10 of any blog at least. Instead of fighting monsters, it’s more economical in terms of trading and using powers of different worlds.

It’s about a 33-year-old man named Erun Steelguard who got screwed over, lost everything and died. His life was pathetic and tragic, to say the least. This Manhwa does not have a gaming system embedded in its plot; however, it has a lot of the elements that series like The Gamer and Solo Leveling have.

You start from zero, and if you aren’t learning the obstacles and tricks of the game, you will die. I couldn’t not include this Manhwa in this blog because finance and economics is a very dangerous game to play.

But because these don’t have actual explicit gaming system aspects, despite how remarkable they are, I will be placing them both lower on this list. Nevertheless, I want you all to read them because they are gold, and in my humble opinion, their storylines are much better than a lot of the higher ranked series on this list.

Manhwa Storyline:

Poor dude. Gong Won Ho lost all his stats and data after becoming a top player in Lucid Adventure. If I were him, I would smash my head to the nearest concrete wall. Imagine losing all that time and effort!

I’d pack my bags and call it a day—for the rest of my life. But that’s not what our MC does! He starts all over again in Level 1.

 

25) Solo Login

Genre: Action, Adventure
Chapters: 62

Manhwa Storyline:

The main character Jung Si Woo doesn’t have friends. That’s nothing to be ashamed about, but it does make you question why?

Well, he’s not an exciting person. There’s nothing interesting about him. He’s a bland guy that lives an average life. However, his average life takes a turn where all of a sudden, Sky Castles are floating in the air.

These Sky Castles bestow certain people special powers and even wings. Since Si Woo is the main character, you’d think he got at least one of them.

Yeah, no. He got nothing. Don’t you think that’s a bit interesting for a Manhwa MC?

 

24) Ultimate Scheming System

Manhwa Storyline:

Just a heads up: the alternative title in English for Ultimate Scheming System is Strongest Anti M.E.T.A. 

The main character is a world traveler named Xue Que. This dude bluffs all the time. Maybe I’m being dramatic, but Xue Que bluffs when he needs to.

He also has the Ultimate Scheming System, but that’s probably not important. It can repair broken fire spiritual roots and give him other elements—no biggie.

Manhwa Storyline:

Guys, Hanyeol has it tough. He lives in a world filled with monsters, and he doesn’t have any special powers.

Isn’t that crazy?! Usually, MCs have incredible strength or something to fight their way to the finish line. Not him though.

He ends up being the supportive sideline during tasks. However, one day, he is gifted with extraordinary abilities. That right there sounds more like a standard MC!

Anyway, Hanyeol with his new powers is now ready to take it up a notch to the next level!

 

22) Solo Auto Hunting

Solo Hunting is a Manhwa with two main English alternative titles: Auto Hunting and Only I Auto Hunt.

It’s about a restaurant worker who works himself to the bone. His name is Oh Yunsung. He lives in a world that is under attack by monsters coming from the fracture.

On one tough workday, he awakens an ability to automatically hunt down these monsters with exact precision!

Oh Yunsung can hunt monsters with this new physical prowess similar to that in MMORPG. He just needs to press the Auto Hunting Button, and his adventures will soon begin.

We now have an OP MC on our hands!

He ends up dying, and the end of the story. Just kidding. He gets reincarnated into Paradiso. But there is a catch. He is reincarnated as Jared— a delinquent lord.

This Manhwa is a riot I tell you!

FFF Class Trashero is about our main character, Kin Han Soo, who is summoned to the world of Fantasia for ten years straight. Kin Han Soo must defeat the Demon Lord if he wants to go back to his original world.

Our OP protagonist ends up beating the Demon Lord. So, shouldn’t he be in his world by now? No, he unfortunately is denied entry to Earth.

Why? It’s because his personality sucks.

Manhwa Storyline:

I am the Sorcerer King is another fantastic Manhwa with gorgeous art! It’s about Lee Sung Hoon, our protagonist of the series and how awful his hunting skills are.

He’s so bad at hunting, that other hunters use him as bait for the monsters! Doesn’t that hurt a bit?! Both physically and emotionally?

However, one day, Lee Sung Hoon remembers his past as the Sorcerer King! He really went from dog food to gourmet meals, man.

Anyway, this is a great read if you’re looking for a riveting story about monsters, dungeons, and a top tier game system.

This is another story about one unlucky dude. Ryu Han Bin has just been discharged from his mandatory military service. He should take it easy, eat some home cooked meals, or at least go on a vacation. Military service is brutal!

However, life isn’t working well with Ryu Han Bin. He ends up almost immediately being transported to another world.

Now, let’s see if his military training will help him survive in this monster infested world!

Genre: Action, Fantasy
Chapters:143+

Manhwa Storyline:

Overgeared Manhwa is centered on a virtual reality game called Satisfy that was created by the world’s top scientists.

The reason why I like this story is because the main character is complex. I can’t believe this is a 2-D person. He is jealous, shallow, and doesn’t have a backbone.

It’s always refreshing to have an MC that isn’t pure hearted. Or maybe I’m twisted, who knows?

 

16) The Strongest Florist

Manhwa Storyline:

The Strongest Florist is about a man named Hwang Jae Ho who joins a virtual reality game. Standard, right? But our MC wants to open a flower shop! He wants to live his life as a dedicated florist.

Our MC’s name is Jaeho. Isn’t his name already precious?!

Jaeho has a large and muscular build, so you wouldn’t expect him to be fawning over a couple of tulips. Isn’t that just adorable!

The manhwa also has over 50 chapters, so the story is long enough to cover a lazy Saturday night.

Genre: Action, Adventure
Chapters: 63+

Manhwa Storyline:

This Manhwa might not captivate all of its readers for a number of reasons. The narrative is a bit common compared to the other stories in this list. The MC does something insane, then it just rinses and repeats.

I love me an OP character, however, I want to see them work towards improving their strength.

But! Even though the general principle of this manhwa is generic, the author somehow manages to make the story thrilling and surprising.

It’s about a VRMMORPG game that’s dying currently. An experienced player becomes bankrupt, and he loses everything. What now? Well, he transmigrated 15 years ago when the game first appeared.

What will this veteran do? Will he continue to wallow in his depressing fate? Or will he fight his way against it?

Tomb Raider King is another lengthy series that might take you a couple of days to read. It’s about a tomb explorer known as Jooheon Suh who searches for The God’s Tombs after they start appearing around the world.

He collects relics that have legendary powers and such. But, with great power, there comes great responsibility—and most explorers forget that.

One thing leads to another, and Jooheon Suh finds himself in a life-or-death situation. He doesn’t die, but instead travels 15 years back!

BE CAREFUL! MONSTERS ARE COMING FROM THE GATES! I REPEAT, BE CAREFUL!

Murim Login is set in an era where the world’s balance is thrown off by monsters. Jin Tae Kyung is a hunter, but a low ranked one at that.

One day, he picks up a VR machine and logs into a game of Martial Arts—which is pretty random. Anyway, Jin Tae Kyung accumulates a steady growth in skill and strength, and before you know it, he escapes the game.

He returns back to his original world, but now as a new man. Will he remain a low ranked hunter, or will he strike fear into all that cross his path?

Manhwa Storyline:

Oh my god. Before we start talking about this Manhwa, I need to let you in on a secret of mine. I am the worst at games. No matter how many times I read the tutorial, or study a couple YouTube gaming experts, I can never get past the prologue stage.

Kim GiGyu is an 18-year-old guy who started his gaming life. He successfully clears the tutorial, so you’d think he’s got some progress.

Well, he doesn’t. No matter what this dude does, he can’t level up. He climbed the tower, he closed the gate, he even killed a goblin—yet he’s still stuck on level 1!

That kind of stuff frustrates me to no end because Kim isn’t like me. I suck, I have no talent, so I deserve to stay stuck at level 1.

But not my boy Kim.

Manhwa Storyline:

Trapped in a Web Novel as a Good for Nothing is a Manhwa with several alternative English titles: Trapped in a Web Novel as a Trash, I’m alone in a Novel, and I Woke Up as the Villain.

I love me a good isekai story. A new chance at life in a completely different world sounds like bliss to me. However, I don’t want to reincarnate as the story’s villain.

Well, our main character does. But that’s only the beginning of this nightmare. This crazy villain that our MC possesses is not a clean plate that may have potential to survive.

Oh no. This villain has already made a mess before the MC took over. Whoopsies!

Manhwa Storyline:

If you like playing MMORPGs, you’re going to love this series. You feel like you are the one inside this Virtual Reality game.

This is a prime example of a Manhwa staying true to its Light Novel.

Legendary MoonLight Sculptor is about a high school drop-out man named Lee Hyun who is a phenomenal gamer. He is considered to be a legend in the game Continent of Magic. He, like a lot of people, is in grave debt. So, what does Lee Hyun do? He auctions his gaming avatar off for 2.76 million dollars.

He manages to pay his debt off, with about $75,000 to spare. Lee Hyun now has to make money to support his sick grandmother and younger sister. But what can he possibly do? He’s a drop-out! Maybe the recently launched VR MMORPG can answer your question!

Manhwa Storyline:

I’ve mentioned this Manhwa before in a few of my other blogs because the plot is a work of art. It already has a great art style, so it’s just a win after win for this one.

A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special is about a catastrophe called The Shadow Labyrinth that wipes out mankind with only six remaining survivors.

Our MC, Desir Arman, is one of the survivors. The six people try to clear the final level of the labyrinth; however, they fail in doing so.

Just when Desir thinks it’s all over, he returns to the past exactly three years before the emergence of the Shadow World. Will he be able to save the world? Or will he be destroyed in the process?

Manhwa Storyline:

I love this story. Although I might seem easy to please, I am quite picky when it comes to Manhwa and Manga. If I don’t vibe with something, I will tell you straight to your face what you should and shouldn’t read.

Dungeon Reset is a definite recommendation. It does a splendid job of portraying a realist journey of a character becoming stronger over time and training. 

Dawoon, our MC, lived an ordinary life before he was summoned into a Dungeon. Now he isn’t looking for treasure. He’s trying to survive!

But that’s difficult because he is a total noob in combat! What will he do?

Manhwa Storyline:

I don’t want to give you a summary of this Manhwa because it will spoil the insane plot twists. Will you trust me enough to read this story without knowing what it’s about? Please?

No? Fine. For those who are still iffy about this story, a brief introduction of Second Life Ranker is down below.

Yeon Woo is the MC of this series, and he once had a twin brother. His twin disappeared 5 years ago. Yeon Woo one day finds his twin’s pocket watch, and inside of it is a hidden diary. In this diary, there are entries about his brother’s life in Obelisk: The Tower of the Sun God. 

In this world universes and dimensions interact with one another—which I find mind blowing. Yeon Woo finds out that his brother died while trying to climb this tower. Now, he too will follow in his late brother’s footsteps.

SSS Class Suicide Hunter has a unique story line to it. Its MC is a hunter who drinks his days away. He doesn’t have a single skill card, so his life is really dull. He will do anything for an S-rank skill—he will even die for one.

Suddenly, a gold skill card appears before his very eyes. But he actually has to die for this skill to work. Be careful of what you wish for ladies and gentlemen!

Gates started appearing in the world. These gates release monsters, but because of this, a phenomenon occurred where random humans were given abilities and these abilities grow stronger as they level up

Our MC was one of the few people who got special powers. He joins a messiah guild to protect humanity. The messiah guild’s motto was to save the world from these monsters. On the final gate, he was betrayed by the guild’s leader. He then finds out that the messiah guild did not want the final gate to be destroyed in order to control the world. This leader was known as the hero.

However, our MC didn’t die. He goes back in time when he first received his power.

Basically, the MC wants to kill the so-called hero. Who would have thought?

Our main character has a rare illness that is characterized as an eating disorder. Since he is bulimic, he has to watch what he eats.

But his situation isn’t looking too great. So, his doctor recommends him to play Athens, which is an alternate Reality Game.

Would you believe me if I told you playing this game may save his life?

This manhwa has taken over my Tik Tok’s For You Page—and I’m not mad about it. The art style never fails to impress me, and the story is out of this world.

Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint is about Dokja, our MC, who is an office worker, so he isn’t living his best life. The only joy he has is reading the web novel Three Ways to Survive the Apocalypse. 

However, his boring life changes when he wakes up in the novel he had just finished!

Manhwa Storyline:

To be honest, I don’t want there to be an anime adaption for Solo Leveling. That terrifies me. The manhwa is so perfect that it’s top tier. And the only other way from the top is down. If a studio tries to take on this story, I’m afraid they won’t do the manhwa justice. The manhwa is just too amazing.

Solo Leveling is focused on Sung Ji Woo who is an E rank hunter. He hardly earns enough money by fighting in low leveled dungeons.

One day, he finds a hidden dungeon in one of his expeditions. However, in this dungeon, Sung Ji Woo receives a quest log—the secret to leveling up!

After developing this ability, Han Ji Han can see the power stats of the people around him, and on top of that, he can even level up.

I wonder how Han Ji Han will use this power and how he fit into this newly discovered world!
