    In manga I usually like a lot power fantasy magic and isekai, so I thought crossing over to mania would be easy, but something pushes me away from most manhua. I liked "Release that Witch" (both manhua and novel) and I think "Skeleton who couldn't protect the dungeon" is also Chinese.
    Could You recommend me some manhuas that would be good to make me more used to manhua style?
    Also I feel like I will have more patience towards a recommended story than found.

    I think the best way to adapt to manga is to find an anime you like with a manga that continues on from where the anime ends. For example, if you really like One-Punch Man, the anime was extremely faithful to the manga and you can pretty much pick up directly from the chapter matching the last episode you watched. A lot of people get their start like that, wanting to know what happens next.

    Novel to manga will work, too, though I feel like it's slightly more rare for a manga to be ahead of a novel these days.

    (Edit: Didn't read the title properly. What I said here is the same for manhua, though.)

    Skeleton who couldn’t protect the dungeon is Korean though...

    For manhua people seem to like soul land. There’s also Tales of Demons and Gods. You could see if you can read those.

    He said something "pushes him away" from "most manhua" and asked for recommendations he might want to read anyway, that would help him get used to manga. My recommendation was that he find a manga that continues the storyline of one of his favorite anime or novels. That is, I believe, the best way to adapt to manga if you're feeling put off by them. Wanting to know what happens next is a pretty powerful motivator.

    Mm. And, just to clarify, if he means manhua, specifically, and has no problem with traditional manga, then what I said still stands - there are some anime and novels with manhua versions around. I honestly don't make a distinction between the two anymore and completely failed to read the title; my bad.

    Amarasumanara
    The Breaker (sequel Breaker New Waves)
    Half Prince
    Immortal Regis (sequel Cavelier of the Abyss)
    Solo Leveling
    Veritas
    Zippy Ziggy

    Webtoon

    Tower of God
    Trace

    Tomo Chan is a Girl It has something for everyone and it's not too freaky or offensive. It's also almost completed I think?

    Solo Leveling I guess.
    Even if you dislike the abundance of dick sucking for the MC you can still appreciate the art and pass the time

    How about Kubera ? It's a webtoon, thought it has been a long time since the last time I've read it, but it was one of my favorite back then.

    (Maybe try the classic Bong Cheon Dong if you don't have a heart problem lol)

    They wanted stuff to get them used to manhua, they're going to experience it at some point anyway.

    At least I didn't include any Lim Dall-Young series.

    I recommend "The Gamer". It has a simple plot, but if you don't know any korean mythology, some parts may confuse you.
    In any case, it is closer to the Japanese Manga style when it comes to emojis(vein popping, black lines, etc.), which should help you ease into manhua/webtoons.
    Here's a zoomed out screenshot.

    Most people are recommending manwha (Korean), but he asked for manhua (Chinese). The styles tend to be pretty different.

    I recommend battle through heaven, or maybe martial universe. Both of their manhua are very good, and easy for you entry to manhua world.

    Ps: if you want to read a good quality of battle through heaven’s manhua, I recommend reading it on qidian’s app, webnovel. If you are okay with not clearly draw and many chapters ahead, you can just google the name and read it on any platform you like. For example, manga rock, mangago, and many more.

    Best art style I've ever seen in a manga/webtoon/manhua goes to Feng Shen Ji. It's a good entry manhua for readers.
