5 Recommendations for the Manga Lover

There are thousands of Manga accessible online for free. Here’s a few series you can recommend (or gift) to your manga-loving friends.

Solo Leveling

To start off this list, we’re featuring the Korean manga Solo Leveling, which centers on a world of monsters and hunters. Ten years after the Gate that connected the real world to the monster world opened, some ordinary people were gifted the ability to enter the Gate to hunt these monsters.

However, the game changes when the main character Sung Jin-Woo, a low-ranking hunter destined to battle the weakest of monsters due to his lack of skills, obtains a new ability to see the world around him as if it were a role-playing game. This allows him to see quest logs detailing ways by which he can “level up”. Sung Jin-Woo uses this to battle his way to the epitomized S-rank level (he’s only E-rank when he starts out).

If you’re a fan of come-up tales, slaying monsters, and the like, this is the perfect manga for you to start with.

Master of Gu

Following the tale of villain Fang Yuan, who was born 500 years ago, Master of Gu opens up a universe where individuals use the power of magical creatures to better their state in the world. Fans bear witness to Yuan’s attempt at rising to power over his foes, making this a perfect manga for anyone interested in anti-hero tales.

One Piece

A rather popular Japanese manga, One Piece follows the story of a boy named Monkey D. Luffy, whose body gains the ability to act like rubber after eating a mystical Devil Fruit. With the crew of the Straw Hat Pirates by his side, Luffy searches for the treasure known as the “One Piece” so he can become the next Pirate King.

Adapted into many forms, including animation, One Piece is a rather popular and famous series that is great fun for any manga fan. It’s received praise for its storytelling, art, characters, and sense of humor, and has broken sales records for manga.

Tales of Demons and Gods

A story of redemption, Tales of Demons and Gods tells the story of Nie Li, who seeks to become the strongest Demon Spiritist when he is unable to protect his home. He ends up falling in battle, but he’s brought back to life with one caveat: he’s sent back in time to when he was only 13 years old and has to struggle with being a teenager once again.

Coming back as a weakened version of himself, he has to retrain to become the best once again in order to protect his home from its encroaching fate of being destroyed by beasts. This story of redemption is the perfect online read.
