I would say the plot isn’t something new in the manhwa world but the story is well-written and the characters are interesting which makes it a good read. The art is good and the story flows smoothly.
9. The Reborn Ranker Chronicles

The art in this manhwa is one of the best I’ve seen. With an OP MC and nice side characters, it makes a good read. If you liked The Great Mage who Returns after 4000 years, then you’d like this one as well.
6. Boundless Necromancer
