EpicNig123 EpicNig123 says...

"I am the Sorcerer King" is similar in many ways to "Solo Leveling". Both have portals which lead to a different world where monsters come out. As well as the existence of hunters, awakened beings which fight these monsters. The main character is extremely op as well, as you'll see relatively early on in the manwha. 

PandorasActor PandorasActor says...

Sorcerer King is pretty much a mangwa ripoff except for the reincarnation part aswell as the fact that everyone can acess the leveling system. Prettyh good anime nevertheless. 

Shinrod Shinrod says...

Same world (monsters that appear in the world), same jobs (hunter parties all over the world), and an overpowered mc.

Both are colored webtoons and both are quite good.

Zerosis Zerosis says...

They are similar but there different enough for it not to be annoying. It is like they are in the same genre but still not the same story. For example in solo leveling the main character surprisingly enough goes solo or with one other person most of the time but in I am the sorcerer king the main character has a party plus he joins a big orginaization also different to solo leveling.So I deffinitly recomend both.

Maxxor2242 Maxxor2242 says...

They both have leads who utilize a leveling system from an unknown sourse.

They both have leads who gained large amounts of power after a near death expierence.

They both have leads who went from having no powers/weakest to strongest. 

Both stories take place in a modern setting with magical elements. 

Kiotary Kiotary says...

It's all the same. "Solo leveling" is more beautifully done; the "I am the Sorcerer King" has a quicker progressing plot

framboesa framboesa says...

Zero to hero protagonist, RPG references, both are dark protagonist inside and have a mother in hospital because of magic

Mistearica Mistearica says...

they both have a similar begining but they go their different ways. if you liked one of them and wanted something else with the smae genre then this is your go to. 

The25thBam The25thBam says...

The reason I like it is cause I love stuff where it's modern day society and then something magical happens

MrMK MrMK says...

A lot alike, both MC's start weak and get strong. Both about hunting in dimensions. Overall both MC's our cool af

MyBoiLuffy MyBoiLuffy says...

Its not even funny how similer they are, both about a dude who is weak then become op, the story line its self is similer to, portals start opening and people start getting powers there are some slight differences.

Manthika Manthika says...

From a mysterious 'System' the main character, a weak nobody, makes his way towards being the strongest of them allGame elements, decent plot, good reading that passes the bechdel test.

Fish2 Fish2 says...

They are very similar, I just reread solo levelling and was just dying for more but I am the Sorcerer King really scratched my itch. They have similar plot lines and settings and both mainly focus on getting stronger.

BenW10 BenW10 says...

Both are about characters with a leveling system. While Sorcerer King everyone has a leveling system, compared to Solo Leveling which only the mc has a leveling system, the mc has knowledge of his previous life where he was a powrful sorcerer and he uses that knowledge to become stronger than everyone else. Both are about weak to strong mc pretty much.

SpOoKyLoVe SpOoKyLoVe says...

Similar structure both extremely overpowered. The environment are also the same, "portals appear out of nowhere and they have to defeat the boss in order to close it." In addition, they are both lowkey.

LunaLightMoon LunaLightMoon says...

The MC's are cool, intelligent, and overpowered and they started off as weak but became strong over the time they trained instead of starting off as strong from the start which wouldn't have made it interesting. Oh and they both have those RPG status boards, I really love when those are in the manga, but I am not sure why, I just like them I guess! And lastly I like how there are funny moments!

Bonji Bonji says...

because both of them have RPG parameter and are OP MC                                                                                                                                                                                         

Buffin Buffin says...

The two are extremely similar, the main and honestly only obvious difference is that the mc in 'I am the Sorcerer King' is reincarnated, both mc's are powerful and crafty and they fully utilise the power and knowledge they have or have been granted

Yozora0ryuu Yozora0ryuu says...

It has a similar format for the abilities and ranking system. Although everyone has the game style "status window". 

CreaColor CreaColor says...

Similarities:

  • Both of their world's have magical beasts that appeard suddenly.
  • In both world's some people got powers because if the incident but not everyone.
  • Both of them have a sick mother that they care for. 

Differences:

  • In I'm am the sorcerer king everyone with powers have game like powers (aka status screen) But in Solo leveling they don't.
  • They got their op powers by different means.

SternRider SternRider says...

Both Isekai magic in a kind of modern world based. 2 overpowered mc.

Both have monsters in it which are the main ressource in this world valued by hunters which job is to hunt with their powers granted by a mysterious yet overwhelming entity.

Aurenfaei Aurenfaei says...

Oyeaaaaaah ! Same idea at the begining, but this one is more based in a reality world, like the manhua "The Gamer".

SuperGoody SuperGoody says...

-The MC starts off weak but soon starts to stand out from the crowd

-The MC has multiple significant feats throughout the series

-The MC stays out of the spotlight

-Both have MMORPG elements

-The MC essentially grinds levels

Jainamjvora Jainamjvora says...

Anime related to rpg includes martial arts, magic , and various other tecniques and leveling its too much fun

DhirGandhi DhirGandhi says...

LMS is about a poor person selling his game accoutn for a large sum of money and then using some of that money to pay all his debts. Then his aim is to earn as much money as possible, so he plays the game, where he becomes really great at almost everything he tries.

Solo Leveling is more on the darker side compared to LMS, but it has a lot more action. It is based in a world with gates. These gates are connected to dungeons and if these dungeons are not completed within a certain time, the gate will open completely, allowing the monsters on the inside to run rampant in the world. The MC acquires a 'system' as he calls it, which is a level up system. The more he fights, the stronger he becomes. EXP+ EXP+... LV UP!

laho laho says...

  • Both are about a character trying to make more money for their families 
  • Both have a leveling system 
  • Both show the mc getting stronger to the point of being overpowered 
  • Both have a game like world (fighting , items , bosses ,...)
  • Both try to keep to themself (avoid the spotlight)

(Spoiler) (light novel)

Both become necromancers eventually 

Both become increadible famous 

LovelyNight1 LovelyNight1 says...

They are very similar yet not really. Cant really explain in words but its a very good manga.

apizzle apizzle says...

Very much the same vein though the character of LMS is much more atypical than SL. Though they both have fiscal needs, LMS's Weed is truly deviante and isn't above putting everything on the line to punch up toward enemies and situations that would ordinaly be next to impossible to overcome. SL's Jinwoo is more of the type that any random person can relate to given a similar situation and oppotunity. Weed just has a devious mind and a background of being a genius of hard work. Jinwoo's ace seems to be more endurance or perseverance but without the more cerebal aspect of Weed.

kurogane42 kurogane42 says...

They share a similar plot line. They both have a leveling system that is unknown to the rest of the populace.

desacron desacron says...

The character in both are very driven and always remain undaunted. Both manga have similar elements.

Makosaphoto Makosaphoto says...

there both following the growth of an Overpowerd MC who is part of a "game." The art styles are similar too.

itari itari says...

Both are about a weak male character who prioritize getting stronger and making more money in order to help their sick loved one. Both characters are unexplainably OP to eveyone else around them. Both mangas have a place where you battle (a portal and/or a video game) and a place where everyone lives (outside portals and/or the real world). I’d strongly reccomend both if you’re into OP characters who have a lot of battles, they have a specific reason for battling, no one around them has yet to figure out how they became so strong, and both manga are slightly emotional (they both made me cry a bit :’]).

Shizukrn Shizukrn says...

i agree, but one thing that i don't really like it, which is the story goes randmon the main character obtains many thing but they don't what he can do with them

Rikiagustians Rikiagustians says...

raye37 raye37 says...

They're similar in the sense of game settings and levelling up. Though MS is more chill and less intense of a MC.

Same game like world. This manga is a mixture of Solo Leveling and Tower of God excep MC is badass from the start (He's not op though he's just a literal badass character)

Galv Galv says...

Not as good though but similar vibes, you might like. At least give it a try, not many chapters though and updates slowly 

Anime4Life888 Anime4Life888 says...

It's similar to Solo leveling because of the increase of power overtime and the emotion of fear at a certain moment to get where he is now. 

Vakeji Vakeji says...

Thoug there are some differences they are mostly alike in the plot and are both very good

apa6 apa6 says...

Its pretty much the same.. Alot of similarities fun read

Update the Office and I will have to look at it and see if I can find it in the shadows and then get to the point where I can find it in the world light and I can get a better idea of what I want to do after level of experience with my head held high in hopes of getting a better feel for the testing and development of the Battlefield industry as well as eyes that look like a criminal on death row accepting the verdict of the food chain wiki that is not coming from the bible and the devil hasn't finished with me yet again and I am not interested in my self comfort level as I am not interested in friendship is power styled but I am not sure what to do with it because I am not a good person and not the most important thing to me and not just a good thing to say about the world is that I am happy with the way I am currently playing with you guys as well as eyes that look like you have been waiting for me to come back and see me again in the future I will be back to the boarding house and he is going to be power in the world is not a good place to be a part of the brain and still the most important thing to do is to make sure he is not the only one who has his own business and your business and your business and your business with your company and your business to help you with everyday life and your cat loses your life and how you can trust me and to be a part movie lover and lover and a friend of yours will never ever ever want to be with you forever and I love you so much and I want you to be a part of my life for you and your family and friends here and I will be happy to help with you and the devil hasn't been able to get buffy hair to come back for a long time... 

ArrowOfPeace ArrowOfPeace says...

Similiar art and story style, Both are good action packed tales featuring a strong male lead that has insane growth. Both get overpowered quickly and both use dagger like weapons

Rover1 Rover1 says...

The main characters are similar and both have abiities they need to hide. ranker is set in a tower of sorts where the mc with the experience of his brother has a huge advantage over the others since his brother had gotten extremely strong. Solo leveling has the mc be re awakened and this causes him to be able to level up and increase his power level. Also both stories involve a character that is looking to cure their ill mothers though 1 of them can't anymore.

fuyuki5frost fuyuki5frost says...

Both focus on the main character as he becomes stronger in an unorthodox way-by playing solo. Although they meet people and share quest s together, it's only for a short while. Their cold blooded but kind nature makes it all the more interesting, whilst making it stand out from the stereotypical 'hero party save the day'.

Apricity Apricity says...

both have very interesting and entertaining mcs, i mean theyre both op but not boring. mMMmMMMmMMmmmMmmmmmmmMmmMmm 12/10 would rec

hanateddy hanateddy says...

both of the books are verry similar, and i just love both story plots !!!!!!!!!!^-^.

and the coloring makes it look even better !!!!!!!^0^.

maydeng maydeng says...

Relatively similar because of the main characters. The setting is similar to that of Tower of God - anyways, both are growth-type manhwas wherein you see the main characters from weak to strong. In my opinion, both mc's prefer working individually than with a team. They both also started doing this because of a family member. Both are badass and use daggers for fighting. I might've missed a few points, but all in all, they're kind of similar.

The Gamer

The Gamer

Jee-Han loves gaming more than anything, but it still comes as a shock when one day, he suddenly acquires a mysterious power that superimposes RPG characteristics onto the real world! Tasks like going to the store for his mother initiate experience-earning quests, and everyone around the boy display levels and stats above their heads. But what starts as a mild curiosity suddenly becomes all the more real, when Jee-Han discovers that there's monsters to be killed, special skills to be earned, and others who have similar abilities!

They both have a since of a mmo like leveling system and they are both badass. Period... I mean what else is there to say about it.

iLive4Anime iLive4Anime says...

They really are similar in the fact that they both have the ability as a "gamer". I am currently up to datw with both and manga and webtoon and they both are really good. Even though The Gamer is more like on the light side of things and Solo is more on the mature bloody side, but I love it so much.

Same artist, so visually the same character. Except in this one MC traveled back to the past to gain the "system". And ranks and skills are different. 

thor123 thor123 says...

In both of these manhwa, the main character "dies" and then becomes a cool overpowered guy who gets game-screens shoved in his face and goes into dungeons to get stronger. The MCs also have similar levels of arrogance.

BenW10 BenW10 says...

Solo Leveling and Tomb Raider King are both awesome mangas that focus on an op mc getting stronger by completing dungeons. Both of them have a game system no one else has and both are cool characters.

Manthika Manthika says...

Dying?  Coming back in time instead?  Dungeon crawling to be the very best, like noone ever was?  To catch them is my real te- *ahem*

His high school now teaches magic, and students are encouraged to try and become accomplished magicians. A world that ran on science now runs on magic. However, some things are still the same. He still has a teacher who sees him as a hopeless student, classmates who look the same, a father who struggles to make ends meet, and a not-by-blood little sister who can't walk on her own. However, Mo Fan discovers that the vast majority of magicians can only harness one element of magic.

I started reading Solo Leveling before Quan Zhi Gao Shou and for me Quan Zhi Gao Shou is an upgrade. It has the same components as Solo Leveling (they're both about an overpowered character with a growing group of followers) but I just thought Quan Zhi Gao Shou was a lot more interesting and better at keeping the reader curious. I feel like you know what's going to happen before it's actually happening with Solo Leveling and that's a huge turn-off for me. So yeah, definitely try this one out if you liked Solo Leveling and be pleasantly surprised

mirrormimi mirrormimi says...

If you read Arifureta and enjoyed the "weakest character getting stronger in the dungeon" part, then Solo Leveling is for you. Unlike Arifureta it keeps up with that topic, and doesn't change into an adventure or a harem manga, it focuses mainly on the leveling/new skills part (which personally was my favourite part of the manga).

If you read Solo Leveling, Arifureta is really fun the first chapters... then it devolves a little into a harem adventure story.

Both are edgy© "nothing personnel kid" stories. In a fun way.

Hirarok Hirarok says...

Both main character have similar behaviour. They were very weak at first several chapters and they became mega op. Yeah i agree with that arifureta become harem . Both of them are awesome (my personal opinion :D)
