      What should one do, if they are currently reading all the manga listed here and are up to date and waiting for more to come out?

      I'm pretty sure solo leveling is also similar? I'm not sure but I think it would be a good addition to this list, because the main character goes from being the weakest to the strongest, and he has a game like system that helps him.

      I think 'Reincarnated as a Dragons Egg - Let's Aim to be the Strongest' is a good example and something I'm enjoying, title's self explanatory.

      surprised that i didn't see "so i'm a spider, so what?" as it follows a female lead who gets reincarnated/transported to another world as a spider type monster.

      I'm not saying the list is bad, they are good but this recommendation list is disappointing. What's unique about Re:Monster is, having a human protagonist that has reincarnated as a "Monster". So in a way this is a fantasy world with "Monter's side of story". (example : "Kumo desu ga, Nani ka?" - "Tensei shitara slime datta ken" - "Tensei shitara dragon no tamago datta") So I was hoping for a list involves Mangas like these.

      Im sorry if this sounds rude but 2 of those where manhuas and manhwas,for example ''The Gamer'' is a manhua if i remember correctly,there is only 2 big differences beetween manhwa,manhua and mangas the first being the language and naming system and the second being the art style which make some manhwas and manhuas really boring to read so if you can do this please fix the title,again im sorry if i was rude.
