~~ 1. Tomb Raider King ~~
The basic framework and story board is very reminiscent of solo levelling. The idea of TOMBS very much resembles the DUNGEONS and Artefacts, very much resembles the Treasures. Just like sung jin woon, the main character was weak and practically impaired at first. But, under few fateful incidents, comes out as a total Badass. Even though solo levelling was the oldest and most esteemed manga till date, the features taken up by Tomb Raider King Can’t be stated as a Copy upstart.
The idea of Tomb Raider King being a story of Revenge sets it apart from solo levelling. The amount of hard work and study that went into making this manga is really great. Whatever the outcome maybe, the never-ending sequences of fights and despair makes it a notch above solo levelling. The character design is very similar yet different. The subtle changes make Tomb Raider King a notch above the rest.
Well, yes, it’s the same fundamental framework. But, calling it a straight up copy would be overstatement. The manga is unique on the story board, and that’s enough to set it apart from the other competitors.
