I want to get this webcomic discussion going, I’ll say a couple ongoing series I’m enjoying on webtoon;
After School Lessons for Unripe Apples (pic), cute middle school coming-of-age romance(?) with a 90s setting.
Happily Ever Afterwards, didn’t think I would enjoy it based on the first few chapters but the characters have really grown on me. Isekai romance with angsty love interest.
Daily Jo Jo, same creator as Yumi’s cells, if you liked that you’ll probably enjoy this.
I’m shit at finding decent romance webcomics that aren’t on webtoon so I’d love some recs

Random chat is hilarious, I'm having a blast every time. The arch of the demonic man-hater just started, I wonder what's going to happen.

agreed, it vascillates from comedy to drama and back fast enough to induce whiplash and the art is hilariously over-dramatic in a way that most western webtoons never seem to get right

western and Sea pickmes need to fuck off and stop reading east asian comics because their shitty moralfagging that they only do to female characters because they want them to be perfect is so annoying.
I was looking at this manhwa called Serena, and all of the women were losing their minds on the comments because the female character has a lover and a husband, and to them that is extremely wrong and she is a horrible person for that, she is a slut, they should leave her, the husband and lover should fuck etc etc.
And most of these retarded cock worshipping women did not even read the plot that she is forced to marry the husband and its arranged marriage so she is not technically even cheating on him since its a forced marriage.
Again women will fangirl over male fictional murderers yet you want female characters to be perfect angels. This is why women starts reading yaoi and abandon the josei/shoujo genre becuse of the constant analyzing of female leads and the fact that many female leads lose their personality in story's due to having to be perfect.

After many many years arc two is finished. I personally dropped it years ago since she was always on hiatus and I just didn't like it any more as time went on. I saw that she had kickstarter for the second arc and was surprised that she still had fans and was completely funded within 16 minutes. Wasn't there some kind a drama revolving her? I just remember someone had made complete tumblr masterpost about along with the creators of The Arcana: A Mystic Romance.
I'll be honest, in addition to jealousy over fictional characters I think those reactions are a natural expression of internalized pickmeism where women and girls try desperately to prove to the world that women aren't cheating whores, evil gold-diggers or vapid superficial bitches, because they've been exposed to those misogynistic opinions their whole lives and now are hyper-aware of it. Basically they're mad that a female character is "making us look bad" though they may not realize it. It's probably also part of the reason why they like and defend horrible scrotes in fiction (sometimes even in real life) to subconsciously prove that we are tolerant and fair and can forgive and love moids who have "made mistakes", and also kind of why so many women are so vocal about liking ugly men I used to be one of those so I may be projecting a bit here
people are crazy i was looking at some opinions of this manhwa and i saw some women commenting saying that she ''needs to be killed or punished'' what the hell…..south asians,arabs, and westerners are so cancerous when it comes to communities that consume east asian media.
They just take all their baggage from their culture (mostly south asians do this) and force it upon some fictional character made by a person who is working their ass off minimum wage to create those chapters.
I’m surprised that she got way more than she anticipated, it definitely speaks volumes about how loved Ava’s Demon is.
The drama that she got into was mostly related to “why is the artist sexual using underaged kids?”

Am i the only one that noticed the theme of workplace/office romance and worker x boss being common romance themes of romance in manhwas.
Im not complaining though.
in terms of releases most webcomic or comic makers in general update every 10 days. But there are some who update longer or shorter depending on the type of art they draw.
I think one chapter updates are better than the whole story being dropped at once.

>Korean FL offs herself to get away from neglecting family and controlling cancer sister, just for shitty sister to continue controlling FL life by taking away her afterlife by forcing her into the body of a bitch who's family loves her meat puppet so much they won't let her die again
Have you ever wanted to commit violence against an author?

The Duchess Has a Deathwish/ I’m a Villainess, Can I Die?
The sick Korean sister had made a wish for her sister and that is how FL got to where she was. If the author wanted to tell a story about how >suicide=bad and your family loves you please don't
then they failed spectacularly because bodysnatching isekai is the worst setting to tell such a moral
better than the other josei/shoujo isekai manhwas where the FL get reincarnated again and falls in love with the same man that killed her. I really dont understand those isekais, i try to ignore them like the plague and there is so many of those ''abusive
husband kills me and i reincarnate again and make him fall in love with me'' type of stories. Theyre all shit, its hard to find decent isekai.

I've noticed this trend in Asian media (because I've seen it in manga and Chinese comics along with the Korean ones) where the female lead has a goal or a want and she is punished by getting someone else's goal instead, and it's usually the romance itself which is just poor writing. Punished because it's always portrayed in a way that seems like the author is saying her original goal was dumb and the female lead was inferior for wanting it.
>Female Lead wants a quiet carefree life but whoops the male lead is super powerful and now she is in a position that has a bunch of responsibility. Silly woman didn't understand that was she wanted was stupid and gets romance instead!
>Femlae lead wants to run her family business and needs a mid-teir husband to take the company? Whoops, the male lead is the secret prince and never told her until after they married and now she can't get the company she has to be queen and run a country she never wanted!
>Female lead wants to not be part of the original story but whoops the male lead is in yandere with her and she's slowly broken down until she loves him! Isn't that super romantic?
>Female lead just wants to be a good mother but whoops the male lead is her adopted son/pet and his wish for a romantic relationship is more important than hers for a platonic one!
>Female lead wants to leave her neglecting and abusive husband but whoops now he's suddenly finds her super "interesting" and they stay together! Silly Female lead, your abusive husband did nothing wrong. You were the problem somehow!
>Female lead is plopped into someone else's body and just wants to break her engagement with a guy she's not into because he's interested in the original heroine int he first timeline? Whoops, she changed the timeline and now the guy is super into her and the heroine was evil anyway lol, silly woman you need to ignore what your goal is and love the guy you don't trust!
It just never ends and I keep reading them and subjecting myself to this torture in hopes I actually find an enjoyable story

lol anon at first I thought you were talking about a manwha I just finished until the part about the guys falling in love with the isekaied FL. If you want something that breaks the stupid trope I would recommend Beware of the Villainess! It wasn't tropey at all and I genuinely enjoyed reading it and seeing what would come next. Some of the plot stuff kind of got wishy washy towards the end as the final arch was closing since some things were set up to seem a bit more grandiose but I think that's because the author kind of wrote themselves into a hole. Other than that it got some good laughs out of me and it seemed like the great almost "revenge" fantasy that goes right.

I'm so sad this thread isn't more active, i really want to fangirl on inso's law like genshin impact anons do ! I can't recommand it enough, it's such a good isekai story that doesn't forget after 10 chapters that the MC isn't from this world. Dani-I remind me so much of Haruhui and the humour is similar to OHSHC. All the characters are well developed and touching, the love triangle is so good !
Jiho deserves his happy ending
File: 1669372618930.jpg (46.26 KB, 362x500, 51eXR0NgENL._AC_SY580_.jpg)
So apparently True Beauty ended, anyone here know what the ending was like? I stopped reading when Suho came back and Jugjong lost all character.
Wasn't that interesting imo.Jugyeong started working with a social media management company and her manager ended up leaking her old shool photos for publicity/to get buzz. She ran away from home because she was so traumatized by people knowing she's ugly, only for her to learn that it's okay to be ugly and people online were supporting her. Suho proposes to her because he really likes her still for whatever reason. The spin-off epilogue chapters have just consisted of pairing off side characters so no one ends up single for whatever reason.
Ultimately don't know why I wasted my life hate reading this when it's noticeably more boring than other popular hate reading fodder like Lore Olympus.
Nta but wow, that's so ass, I can't believe I also hoped it would be something interesting, but nope, it's trash.
I just thought the story was going to be about a woman discovering how shitty is the makeup industry and how nobody really needs to wear makeup to show their *~true beauty~* roll the credits.

I read this one a while ago after finishing July Found by Chance (a really good take on the "character aware they're inside a story" genre) but it didn't click on me. Does it get better anon? I dropped it around 60 chapters in
Also I finished a few villainess webtoons that aren't shit and have nice art if you need just something light-hearted to read lol
Oh I had this in my backlog for a while. When I get around to it I'll update in here nonna.>>257782
I remember enjoying the kdrama
of this and then when I went to check out the manhwa the MLs all looked too faggy. Especially (kdrama) best boy Seojun who looked DOUBLY faggy with the idol styling and makeup. Whew.
congrats for the B1 korean ! i suck at learning non latin alphabet languages so im always amazed by people who can>>257950
please do im really curious !>>257946
i really liked the extraordinary you drama but the webtoon's characters were too inexpressive to me. tbh the first 60 chapters are prettry representative of the rest of the story, i've read the novel and there's still a long way to go before the "living in a fiction" story line realy goes somewhere.
I used to be super in to webtoons but I kinda stopped reading them around 2020, which is kinda nice because most have 1-2 years of backlog at least. I read through the previous thread and didn't see any of these, so I thought I'd share. I read these all on webtoon but when i did there was NOT the paying for episodes/one ep per day thing going on, idk if any are pirated online anywhere
>Miss Abbott and the Doctor (finished 2020)
Victorian romcom between a quiet and orderly doctor and the eccentric daughter of a local explorer back from the amazon. It's funny and cute, and I like the art. Also, the characters actually have personalities and grow throughout the series
>Hooky (finished 2020)
Fantasy series that follows two siblings as they grow up. I never actually finished it and the art is definitely different from the usual eastern series that gets posted, but the series has a complex plot that develops as the characters get older.
>Empyrea (on hiatus, currently 59 episodes posted)
Lol basically it's a fantasy romance with really great art. The plot is insanely slow but there are some monsters meddling and knights that fight them and nobles that don't do anything. I found it when it was on canvas/discover in like 2017 before it went on hiatus until it launched in 2018. The author has only managed to put out 60 eps between then and when it last went on hiatus in 2021 so I wouldn't be surprised if it's canceled.
>Rise from Ashes (finished 2020)
A secret-ish society known as the Red Crows harness the power of normal ghosts to fight evil spirits. It follows the politics of the world it's set in and I liked it quite a bit, but also never finished it and I will say that the length of S2 compared to S1 tells me the ending might've been rushed.
There's a bunch that are still ongoing so I'm just gonna list them:
The Secrets of Soulford (cool unique art), Suihara: The City of Water (really different plot and setting from normal webtoons!), Hero complex (author posts in August and jan-march consistently but otherwise disappears), The Red King (on hiatus since 2021, nice art). My absolute favorites are definitely Miss Abbott and the Doctor and Blood Stain (by the author of Punderworld, but I cant stand myth retellings so i prefer to ignore that punderworld exists. the author has previously mentioned that she prefers to work on punderworld but she still updates it!). also rip hellish, it's been scrubbed completely, hope the author is ok, I remember that they were going thru a lot

Love Advice from the great duke of hell ended and the author is (probably) coming back with a new story about vampires.>>257782
Am I the only one who didn't hate-read TB? It was obviously flawed but I dropped it because of the endless filler more than anything

omg that's the most wholesome thing i've ever read on LC ! thank you for coming back
And i agree the merch is so adorable, i'm so jealous of korean fans ! The first volume had the cutest Dan-I keychain i would've paid a whole lot for it.
>your favorite arc ?
i loved the party arc. We get to see Ji-ho in a suit (hehe) and Yuri's monologue got me really hooked up, i usually hate when female characters's whole personality revolves around being in love with one of the MC but she felt so desperate, i really feel like the novel's author made her only to be an evil rival and she can't do anything else but love Ji-ho, she hates it but can't do anything about it
The courage test's arc was so cool too just because of how scary it was we still don't know what was that creature who turn off the light was and i can't wait to know>favorite character ?
I love Yeoryeong's realtionship with Dan-i, it's so rare to see such genuine love between friends, espacially girls, in romance story. She's so based for hating men who only see her for a physical beauty. I can't stand Ruda, he acts like a child and i hate when rich characters' background story is about having a bad relationship their parents.>just fangirling about Dan-I
I just love her so much. I'm insecure af and her fear that she can't be loved by anyone is so relatable to me. She's not dense to create tension and extend to story but because she's surrounded by people she deemed as more valuable than her. Even if her friends tell her a thousand times they love her she just can't believe them because she's scared to love people more than they love her. The whole "scared to be forgotten by people who mean so much to you" is so real. People i loved with my whole heart left my life without any explanations and they've moved on but i can't, i still think of our time together and i feel like i didn't matter. I know it's corny but the story actually helped me appreciate things are they are happening and do things even if they might be meaningless because i still learn and grow from doing it. She's also one of the first character from a school setting i see actually studying, like a human being. She spends her weekends working and has to cancel plans to focus on homeworks. She study hard but as she says herself, not to the maximum, she doesn't reach exhaustion and doesn't want to but her parents try to shame her for it. I just hope she finds peace, i feel like if she does, i will too.
Have you read the novel ? i tried but Dan-i is not as witty and A Hyeon's art gives her so much life.

To preface this, I don't read webtoons. I found this random YouTube video of a webtoon edited to an Eminem song and I just had to read it to figure out what it was about.
Darbi is a western webtoon about a baby t rex and his family trying to survive in a harsh world. I honestly don't know why I read past the first chapter (maybe it's the autism). Not only is the art style ugly as fuck, but there's so much blood and constant violence it's genuinely hard to tell what's going on sometimes. Why are the dinosaurs swearing constantly? Why do most of them have southern accents?
It didn't take long for disgust to overcome any curiosity I had. The third chapter? arc? features dinosaur breeding season, and Darbi gets captured and thrown into a pit full of giant insects for the entertainment of the females of another species, who are currently squirting everywhere.
He ends up killing every insect and dinosaur there except for one who runs away, Darbi chases it and he ends up underneath two sauropods who are in the middle of fucking. The female gets scared and runs away, and Darbi ends up covered in a metric fuckton of cum. I hope I'm not being pearl-clutchy but who the FUCK thinks of this, let alone makes a comic of it in full colour? I swear to god the moid who made this needs a mental institution.
I didn't want to include anything completely disgusting, so the pic included is just an example of how ugly the art style is. I really needed to get this off my chest that I read such cursed material

I've found some very strange and sexual comics on Canvas, the common things seem to be softcore glossy art, the characters change size and detail panel to panel (breast, lips, height, shading on face etc.) fluctuate a lot, and there is gigantic height difference between the lead men and women.
Also look at these creepy hands (comic is The End of You)
File: 1676752255957.jpg (928.36 KB, 1000x2000, Collage Maker-18-Feb-2023-12.2…)
More from The End of You, top image to highlight strange coomer anatomy and scarecrow shading on the nose, bottom left panel to showcase some clunky "kingpin" alpharot dialogue, and bottom left is the only panel like that in the comic (btw they just met so this is a fantasy in the dude's mind).

And took me forever to remember the name of this webtoon, it's called The Heart of Eternity and it's full of incredibly gross anatomy and is kind of a 'refreshing' throwback to 2000s era How to draw anime books sold at bookstore. It's so ugly I can't look away.

Any nonnas reading Aisha? Is a retelling of a story (Ayesha's secret) by the same author. It's your typical story set in 18th century Europe where two twin sisters try to escape from their evil stepmother. It's basically a drama manhua with some elements of mystery and romance (it also deals with themes of child SA and incest so proceed with caution)
Since it's a remake I think we know more or less how it will end, but it's been a nice read so far. The main cast is pretty entertaining and the art is gorgeous. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good old period drama.

I started reading this and dropped it quickly. Art style is nice, but it was boring as fuck. Speaking of retarded comments, I've been reading pic related recently. MC is pretty ruthless (tho not enough, imo; I've been hoping she was gonna poison her pos father to become the countess quicker) keeps ML at arm's length and is pretty upfront about wanting to break their arranged engagement and willingness to stab him in the back, even after they have sex. People in the comments are so pearl clutchy about it. Yeah, he loves her, she doesn't love him yet and has her own ambitions, but they're clearly the end game, stop crying about women having their own agenda in life.
Also, I've been on a minor OI spree recently and I come with some reviews:>The Villainess is a Marionette
Great art, hilariously bad plot. The author herself sometimes forgets the MC is a transmigrator instead of a regressor. MC in first life aggressively pursued the unwilling ML, but now decides to drop it and he immediately falls in love with her with no other incentive whatsoever. ML has absolutely zero personality. The plot is completely disjointed and random, people do stuff and things happen without any logic at all. I heard the novel is a bit better, but I'm not gonna bother.
>Second life of a trash princess
Bretty gud. Art is nice (tho the artist puts random bows on random shit), plot is fine and fun, MC is actually smart and gets some shit done. I also like how every background character has their own personality, quirks, relationships and even minor backstory. The MC also does not forgive her father for ignoring her existence for years, even after he tries to make up for it, which is pretty refreshing. The biggest letdown is the ML, who's basically a dumb piece of wood with a pretty face.
>The max level princess is bored today
Pretty good at avoiding some cliches of the genre. MC is a former warrior empress reincarnated as a noble girl. She has no revenge agenda or particularly tragic backstory, and just lives her next life with no particular goals besides having fun, has normal, loving parents and brother, has a fairly realistic relationship with ML evolving from friendship to love and so on. Very solid read, shame it goes pretty slowly.
>Sister, i'm the queen in this life
Dumb and boring. MC is kind of unsympathetic, her sister initially seemed like she'd be a decent opponent only to get nerfed into a retard as soon as the MC goes back in time. ML is also boring. Art is fine. I read spoilers and this story evolves into some insane shit over time and is way too long.
>The perfect plan for a fairy-tale ending
I'm not even gonna bother with any description. The MC is a MASSIVE RETARD. Not even in a fun way, just blood boiling way.
>Survive as the hero's wife
I was hoping for some political intrigue and slow-burn romance, but it's just too cutesy and simplistic for me. Mid.
>There's No Use Hanging On
Shitty art and boring, badly developed plot. MC looks like a poor man's Roxana, MC is bland as overboiled rice and in love with her for no real reason. I actually cackled when he told her her handkerchief in his chest pocket saved him from a stab wound. It's that bad.
>The beast tamed by the villainess
Great art, decently ran plot, incredibly toxic
relationship between MC and ML. It's trash, but I love it, though it's obviously not for everyone.
>I've tamed the tyrant and ran away
The author never heard of "show, don't tell". The doesn't make much sense, shit happens just because, main heroine is kind of a Mary Sue, while ML is your typical Dark Possesive Brooding Emperor, yet pretty bland at the same time. Art is okay.
>It's time to change the genre
It's fun and wholesome and I like how it doesn't have any huge stakes, like a country-wide political or world-saving plot. Plot twist is a bit dumb, but it doesn't have any major impact on the overall story.
>The villainess lives twice
Art style is pretty mediocre and the plot is simplified compared to the novels. It's not terrible, but novels are much better, so I recommend those. I like how it focuses more on politics than romance, so if you're into political intrigues, go for it.
Very original premise and good art, but I couldn't get into it. The protagonist being insane and murderous sounds fine and I like dark plots usually, but this time it just felt alienating to me as a reader. ML isn't particularly interesting either. Not for everyone, but check it out.
>Kill the Villainess
Another proof interesting premise does not guarantee interesting plot. Good art and I really liked MC's design, but the story was so fucking boring, I dropped it quickly.
Also a more original premise and I like how the author explicitly based the setting on early 19th century Spain. Art is very nice. It's also a bit more realistic about how regressing might affect someone psychologically and it has some interesting plot twists. I definitely recommend this, just don't get fooled by the first chapter.>>302133
I read the original Ayesha's Secret and it was okayish, but the plot twist was kind of retarded. I started reading Aisha, but I can't get over historical inacurracies and improbable behaviors. The art is gorgeous admittedly. I was all sorts of disappointed, because I read the author's manhua Doctor Du Ming (which had a more traditional, manga format) and it was pretty great, albeit very dark.

villains are destined to die got a physical release in my country so i read some pages at the bookstore today and really enjoyed it. i like how the story actually shows how the mc was before she got reborn as the villain and you can see the parallels between her real life and her new life.
anyone have any recs for webtoons that are similar and not the same bland "salarywoman dies from overwork and wakes up as the villainess and her entire personality is villainess with internal conflict dialogue"?
Kill the Villainess is kinda like that, as in MC isn't happy about transmigrating into a novel and wants to go back to her previous life and family, even if she wasn't rich or particularly happy there. She tries to go directly against the main storyline, but realizes she can't, because other protagonists are basically NPCs. Then she tries to kill herself, but it fails every time. She eventually meets a witch who's aware she's a transmigrator and they strike some kind of a deal to get her out. Also, her love interest isn't some Cold Duke of the North, but a lowborn knight with a rather mundane appearance, and her parents and close servants are somewhat aware she's not the person they used to know and it affects them mentally.
As I said above, it's an interesting premise, but I found the execution really boring and dropped it in like 20 chapters. A lot of people like it though, so check it out.
But yeah, it's hard to find stories where MC's previous life has any impact on her personality and plot.
File: 1688499588076.jpeg (133.77 KB, 673x1198, Resetting Lady.jpeg)
I got so hooked on Resetting Lady, I'm glad you mentioned it. I love the MC and how she has nothing to lose. I wish they developed the second ML more, the priest guy. He's hot and I like their childhood backstory
One of the few webtoons which actually manages to surprise me with its plot twists.

I hope it's okay to talk about American/ Euro webcomics here
I want to like Autophobia, but it feels like the writing takes a nosedive around where the couple have their first fight. The main character's dad suddenly has a different personality and the relationship crosses the line from puppy love to being kind of syrupy and gross. I'm also not a fan of how the love interest is portrayed as a perfect flawless boyfriend (aside from being uggo), makes him comes across as flat.
It made me kek when the author closed the comments on that scene where the school locked the doors as soon as prom started like it's a pyramid scheme initiation because people were making fun of it a bit for being a contrivance to create drama and she got her feelings hurt. Like get over yourself

I feel kinda guilty about liking this webtoon (Going Up) because both the art and the story are kinda like straight out of a teen magazine (when those were at thing) or the cover art of a chicklit but honestly the art is cute and refreshing compared to all the ugly sjw Western art and manga/manwhas on webtoons.

yes this is exactly what you think it is, istg they're so close to awareness
The description >Charon's sister dressed him up as a girl, and he liked it. This is their story, learning about who they are, and their friends and family around them.
so it literally begins with a sissy/feminization fetish.

I kinda didn't like this webtoon; between SU verse sequence art style and on the nose writting it just felt sloppy. Pity as in the hands of someone competent it could have at least been good ish
It's a type of therapy, built around the idea that mental illnesses (particularly depression and anxiety) are caused by 'distorted thoughts', basically false beliefs that are negative in nature-'my friends all hate me', 'if I go to the dentist I'll end up in horrific pain' that sort of thing. You cure the illness by replacing the negative beliefs with positive beliefs-'my friends actually like me' etc.
For example, the initial post mentions a scene in Autophobia where the main character and his friends get locked out of prom for showing up late. The main character is initially upset, but then tells himself that the only thing which matters is getting to spend time with his friends, so the specific location doesn't matter. And I don't know, that just seems insane to me. Objectively something really annoying just happened to him, surely it's better to just sit with those feelings of frustration for a while, rather than lying to yourself that you're aren't angry. I know growing up with parents who were very uncomfortable with displays of negative emotion is colouring my views a lot though.
Sorry 4 derail

I was bedridden all day so I read the first 80 chapters of Olgami/Trapped and I'm hooked. I love the tension brought by a psychological thriller with a slow burn romance and it has so much of my favorite tropes : yandere male, enemies-to-lovers, vampire, ML falls in love first, guys fighting for one girl… this author really gets me. It's dramatic, well-paced, gets pretty dark at times and the latest chapters I read had also some fun moments. The art isn't the best but it's not bad, the characters are all attractive so it's good enough for me. I really like the MC and how unbothered she is, she's a badass.
Has anyone read it, if so what did you think? Do you know of webtoons/manwha/fic with a dark, mature tone and similar tropes?

I enjoy reading The Return of the Crazy Demon, he goes around poisoning people with laxatives, but for a noble cause, i think he's very likable and misunderstood.

Let's Play is very bad and just kept getting worse and hornier . Freaking Romance and Death: Rescheduled(especially this one) are so unreadable and inconsistent/cringe as well. The authors are also unbearably egoistic about their precious creations.

There is no point in reading manhua in 2023. It's so censored and only going to get worse. Fuck the CCP and fuck communism.

Looking for manwha recs, I’ve been e joying the following: betrayal of dignity, what it means to be you, your eternal lies, love class and under the oak tree.
Also I’ve been trying to find a good app on iPhone for reading mangas but they’re all poor quality or costs money (like manta and tapas) I’ve heard about paperback but it’s not available on my countries AppStore?

It's a weird plot about "evil" mixed race kids and interracial mixing.
The villain is blasian too which makes even less sense why he is the villain because half-black half-asian mixed kids get treated like trash and like outsiders in asian countries.
Author sounds like a boomer afraid of mixed race children.
