True Beauty is one of my least favorite webtoons tbh. It's so cliche that I couldn't get past the chapters where the black haired ~goddessu~ was bullying the main girl. It's also weird that the main girl is the author's self-insert mary sue. >>49339
I've never read a comic from their comedy section that I found enjoyable. Your post is spot on.

I found it cute and really enjoyed the art.

It’s cringy that girls in their 20’s are still making self insert Mary Sues and it’s even more embarrassing that they’re putting their fantasies out there for everyone to see. True beauty’s author even gave the main character a name similar to hers (Lim Jukyung vs. Lim Jugyeong) and shoops herself to look like Jugyeong. >>49489
Yeah this. Iirc her initial infatuation with Suho was based only on his appearance as well.

I really dislike how Lore Olympus looks. I couldn’t get past the wonky art to read too far in… is it just that the writing is that good? I sincerely don’t get it, not to knock it at all though. >>49459
This one is sincerely adorable. I really liked how this one flows.

I really love Choco Latte, the author doesnt use any dialogue (besides a few text messages) and its really cute. The art style is really pure too
I love Hell Phone too!! Can't believe Webtoon paid for the authors other comic Lorna but not Hell Phone.
Lorna just sucked.
Nah that's a dude who runs a fashion blog. I dont think the author has any intention of making him trans.
However, the black girl in the back is trans.

I like Lookism a lot. The story was boring and flat at first but there's some character development and obvious improvement to the art over time. I will admit that I find the fight scenes boring because they're so kdrama over the top and are super drawn out (like minimum a whole chapter).>>49728
I knew that she had an assistant but I didn't know that she actually has 4 people working for her. >>49734's post is even more ridiculous now because the webtoon is constantly on long hiatuses.
I also see people lauding it as well written and calling Persephone a cute and interesting character, but it's literally just uwu soft babby moves to a new town where the hottest man around is infatuated with her and she gets bullied by a super hot chick that likes the hot man. Super cliche and overused plot.
I honestly really like Lookism too and despite this slow ass pace, it's still really interesting. Character development is good too. The art was wonky at first but it's gotten pretty clean over time. But sometimes it gets too
into the gang themes though.>>49533
She reminds of the black haired girl body wise, can't remember her name, instead. Since in the story the mc is considered average flat and shapeless.
I think True Beauty is becoming a kdrama in the future too?

I'm conflicted about Knights of Ashera. On one hand there sometimes are very well-rendered panels (that the creator obviously did as stand-alone illustrations at first, then inserted into the comic) but on the other hand you get these lazy panels where she just copies and pastes stuff around. Almost every panel is just "single character seen from the shoulders up faces the viewer directly and talks", too.

Did we read the same Webtoon? I went back and re-read the prologue and first chapter and it clearly states in the first chapter that she started doing makeup because she got rejected by a guy. The author herself is crazy obsessed with looking perfect too but she ends up in uncanny valley territory. >pic related she shopped herself almost as tall as the door>bonus: compare her body shoop in this pic to the body shoop here >>49533

I literally can't believe how some titles like Miss Abott and the Doctor manage to get serialized and paid by Webtoon themselves. It's literally just scanned paper sketches.

Spirit Fingers is such a nice and sweet webtoon imo, I'm glad that it updates often even though you can find up to 76 chapters in English (the whole completed series is in Korean)
I would also recommend Odd Girl Out and Honey Lemon, HL is kinda hit or miss when it comes to the art style, it can be wonky most of the time but I would still recommend it
Nta but i've followed yuumei for a long time and i liked her until she started releasing comics, especially fisheye placebo.
In that comic she goes from making a ridiculous cringey graffiti superhero character (playing down sooo bad what is actually like to do something like that in china), to then making cheap tear jerker scenes as if you should take that comic seriously.
It's not like i don't think a comic can be out there ridiculous and still be great. The problem is that she's completely unaware of how dumb her stuff is and at the same time she takes herself sooo seriously.
Also her characters dress like fucking sparkle dogs, it's like she's stuck on her 2007 teenage phase, no evolution whatsoever.
Also didn't she scam a bunch of people with the fundraiser for her ugly ass axent wear headphones?
yes I like Odd girl out aswell!
Thoughts on Gourmet Hound?

I’ve been reading Love Me Nice for years. I wish she updated more regularly though
She's so pretentious about fisheye placebo but the whole comic is just shallow "wokeness" and eye-straining colors. She's the type who preaches about ~corrupt politicians~ and ~environmentalism~ but didn't see a problem with calling her plant by its outdated colloquial name "wandering jew".
Yuumei's work is just so boring and immature, with no subtlety at all. She has a massive ego and small worldview, and it shows in her comics.
Pretty sure she held off on production for the headphones for 2 years because the manufacturers weren't up to her standards, and when the headphones finally came out they were bulky and shit quality kek
File: 1569229395396.jpg (197.54 KB, 800x1734, tape_it_back_together_by_yuume…)
I am the original Yuumei hate anon and while I agree about everything said about Fisheye Placebo (I especially hate the sparkledogs clothes and retarded animu humor), I've hated Yuumei ever since she posted pic related with the description:
>My family has a complicated history of separation, immigration, divorce, and remarriage. I won't go into the details but my mom often said to me "It's my life, my choice, I do what I want. You have no right to judge me."
>I'm 18, but as a 9 year old child at the time, I couldn't repeat what she said. I could only wonder "Your choice in life affects me too."
>Divorce is such a fad these days. Half the people I know have divorced parents, and most of them aren't happy about it. I understand in some situations divorce is the only way, but when your choice affects more than just you, think of the consequences and choose wisely.
I felt (and still feel) that she sounds incredibly cunty and self-obsessed. Obviously I don't know her situation but the overly uwu angsty doodle with that comment make her sound just as selfish as her mother. Not to mention she made a whole comic on the topic which also feels incredibly self-pitying.
THIS, she forces dumb simple minded messages so hard, hurr durr government bad, hurr durr yuumei sad woe me my life so hard, hurr durr water is wet.
Her comics are so shallow and stereotyped in the way they portray china that you could tell me the autor has never set foot on asia and i would believe you.
She's just preaching the obvious, it's neither interesting nor does it teach you anything new, but she still acts like it's sOooOo dEep.

Does ero webtoons count?
I love Sweet Guy/he does a body good and never got over it, even though the story was kinda stupid. I feel like the author wanted to do more with it but it had to be rushed due to the artist's illness/injuries, which is understandable, but a shame.
I tried reading Ghost Love, but neither the art nor the story were engaging enough for me to keep going nor the porn itself either.
Fatal Woman felt like it was written by a woman (which is good) and the story was interesting, but had so much cucking that it was obvious it was the writer's fetish. Pretty meh in that regard.

Saged samefag to add:
As for non adult webtoons, I really love The Last and her Butler, although their chemistry was arguably better before they both got officially together, at least imo
I hope it turns into a kdrama, although I highly doubt it.
I love webtoons that are office centered instead of high school centered. Does anyone have any recommendations for this kind of setting?

ugh. definitely not worth becoming anything more than a webcomic
In Fate the main difference is that they're figures taken away from their original time periods/settings and interacting with each other and modern mages, not just the 100th retelling of a generic Greek tale we have heard a million times by now.
Also the art of Lore Olympus looks like generic illustrations from a magazine article, not a comic. Does someone actually read this?
>>56959>In Fate the main difference is that they're figures taken away from their original time periods/settings and interacting with each other and modern mages, not just the 100th retelling of a generic Greek tale we have heard a million times by now.
Are you really sure that is a pro point on Fate rather on Lore Olympus? Fate doesn't even sticks to actual personalities and history, character are just turned into lolis or any other manga stereotype as the writer pleases with no history research but a wikipedia page? Not to talk about the trashiness levels FGO reaches.
I am not saying LO is anything better, but they sure stay on the same level to me.

Anyone else read Ghost Teller? I love the art style and the pacing is decent, but I can’t really stand the story. It’s so anti-climactic and “we live in a society” that it’s really not enjoyable. I know it’s supposed to be about revealing the dark side of humans but there’s really no twist and the stories are fake deep.

How do you guys feel about Merryweatherey's comics? The only one I kind of like is Clinic of Horrors. Outside of that, I don't think he's a good writer and he relies too much on beating anime tropes to death (Stalker x Stalker is basically a YanSim fanfic) and drooling over big tiddy high school girls and lolis (literally all his comics). I brushed the latter off as weeb fanservice but then I remembered that several of his male protags are self inserts. Guess he found a way to date his waifus lol.
He absolutely relies on picking whatever is popular with weebs at the moment, quickly churning out a script for it and hiring artists that can keep up with several updates a week. It works well for WEBTOON's demographic and format, it favours updating a lot (even if the updates are short) and having more than one comic.
Unrelated to the "quality" of his writing but I used to be in a server with him and always thought he was a teenager, based on his typing style and dumb arguments he'd get into. I was floored when I found out he was an actual adult with popular webtoons.
I don't follow a lot of webtoons, but the ones I do follow, I kind of hate and I'm not quite sure why I haven't dropped them. My biggest problem with most of them is the pacing. Almost everything I read has dozens of chapters, yet has barely progressed whatsoever. Every time I read a new chapter, I'm hoping/looking forward to some small progress, but instead I get handed a pile of dogshit. Anyway, I'll leave some individual opinions on the ones I'm following.
My Deepest Secret, I dislike it, but also still enjoy it. The art is mediocre, I don't understand Elios's weird character design when everyone else looks so normal, and I feel like the story progression is too slow. The plot is also a bit eh, though, not terrible so far. I'm hoping it'll improve as it goes along.
Cursed Princess Club is pretty fucking terrible. Gwen is absolutely hideous and ~uwu~ soft sm0l bean who's quirky. The plot progression has been absolutely nonexistent as well and the art is incredibly awful. It feels like the creator can't even be arsed to use a less disgusting brush. The whole feelsgoody asspatting premise is painfully obnoxious and shittily done. By far the worst part of it all has to be the fanbase. They all talk about how beautiful Gwen is and demonize the prince for being unable to be attracted to a character who literally looks like a witch. It's all disgustingly disingenuous.
Candilanderz is obscure, but nonetheless awful. The creator has awful art, the characters are all obnoxious, and the pacing feels jarring. The premise feels about as terrible as its characters, too. I don't know why, but it seems to have been put on hiatus for months now. The thing is, the creator has been releasing shitty animatics of the characters in the meantime and has made multiple speedpaints where she talks in depth about the characters history instead of showing it through the comic.
True Beauty, once again, has terrible pacing. Almost nothing has fucking happened. Every time we get close to something happening, it stops on a cliffhanger that ends anticlimactically and doesn't progress anything. I can count on one hand the number of significant things that has occurred. Honestly, I would much rather she not bait something is going to happen. It actually pisses me off the amount of times this has occurred with the exact same results. The art is pretty stiff, which I think is related to how many times the artist redraws it. Her process seems to be make a sketch, line the sketch with a sketch, line that sketch with another sketch, and then finally do lineart with airbrushed pillow shading.
Finally, Lore Olympus. Like everyone has been saying, the art is terrible and so are the characters. Nothing has happened for about 60 chapters, either. It's only everyone thinking Persephone is an ~uwu~ cute sm0l bean. The story gets sidetracked so much as well. It keeps introducing all these character subplots and then never touches on them again. Other things, things the should be more significant, have also been grossly neglected. Persephone got raped somewhere around chapter 20. Considering a huge part of the story seems to be the virgin goddess shit, how is it this has been ignored for so long? It's also been 70 chapters of "they like each other OwO" and nothing has happened with that either. It's beyond the point of slow bullshit that even the shittiest of shoujo manga would consider pulling. I could say a lot more, but it'd be too long for something that's just a regurgitation of what other anons have been saying.

There was a few webtoons I followed back in the day. One was featured on a blogsite called "Stuff You Will Hate" and it was based around a scene kid and making fun of the subculture it is. Can't find it for the life of me.The other was the Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi featured on Snafu. Something about their drawing style got me addicted.
nah not necessarily but I kind of find it endearing that she's got physical flaws. plus some of the spots on her face are freckles.
there's a chapter where lornas friend tries to give her a makeover and she hates it lmao>>59023

This is a cute comic so far, just a simple romance story but the art is nice and the characters are likeable, only problem is the pacing (which is an issue with most webtoons imo) but it’s not too bad.
odd girl out, unordinary, hooky, cheese in the trap, and boyfriend of the dead are the ones i genuinely look forward to every week. great pacing, great characters, and unique story ideas. odd girl out and boyfriend of the dead don't have the best art in the world, but it makes it more authentic imo. their passion shows.
least favs are definitely lore olympus, luff, age matters, and sweet home. lore olympus is the only one i still follow at this point bc i'm curious about the apollo plotline. mary sue, unoriginal characters. luff and age matters are boring af, and sweet home is mad edgy. i also tried following let's play in the beginning but if you wanna talk about mary sues, THAT is a shitshow.
siren's lament and freaking romance are just kind of okay. siren's lament got boring and as another anon said, freaking romance's creator is fucking annoying. i love yoo is super interesting, but shin-ae gets super grating. she's such a stereotype. i actually enjoy true beauty but i totally see the critiques about pacing and story, i'm just in it for the love triangle at this point. ghost teller was better in season one.
and for completed ones, oh holy, refund high school, and your letter were fantastic.
(also not official webtoon but it's on webtoon: read satan and me. it's so fucking good.)
I hate the pacing too, but still enjoy them from time to time. I think a lot of them have horrible pacing because it seems to be the norm to milk one series for all its worth. Or you have the webtoon that has been going on forever and they literally just dissolve into repetitive slice of life villain of the week shit.
For both I blame the editors. They don't usually want their money magnet to stop.
Don't make me remember Bleedman

Not a fan either. I don't think the art is necessarily bad but it's just so stiff. Like someone posed wooden mannequin dolls and traced over them. Story-wise…I'm not even sure what it's about anymore. Most featured webtoons seem to go like that, 80+ episodes with a bunch of useless dialogue, tangents, little character development and no direct or engaging plot. Stopped reading I Love Yoo around chapter 60 because of this.
Also, does anyone else abhor the 3D backgrounds some webtoons use?
I would honestly much rather see artists draw their own backgrounds even if they do look wonky. The 3D backgrounds just look so devoid of life/personality and so unflatteringly detached from the characters - pic related.

saw an ad for this and even tho pretty simple,i like how cute it is.it also gave me feels
also pic related is mood
Talk to Me is pretty cute! From what I have read so far, the main couple have a healthy relationship and there is NO NTR or dubcon (which runs rampant in ero webtoons). The only drama is the heroine's inner conflict of the Madonna Whore complex regarding herself, which does lessen as she talks and has sex with her bf. I have not read it recently since it is pretty hard to find translations of it.
I like the art of Narae's Fantasy, but the plot is pretty meh and I feel like it drags on at times imo. I have stopped in the middle of it because it is hard to find translations. Women focused ero webtoons really don't get that much love in translations compared to the typical male MC titles.

Yuumei used to have a comic called Knite about these kids who would fly kites with LED lights to mimick stars and it was meant to be a commentary on the pollution in China but then she introduced the villain in the story, who went on to explain that the lights and batteries and kites were causing even more pollution and honestly made much more sense. After that, she stopped updating because she probably couldn't justify her heroes anymore
Tbh Yuumei isn't bad but it's her attitude that makes things worse. It's like she thinks she's the next Harper Lee or Nelson Mandela, pic related
I don't really see the SJW stuff in the comic, maybe I'm overly distracted by everyone acting like Hades pulling out another man's eye in revenge (and then giving it back) is totally cute and quirky. I haven't even seen comments calling that out as being off-putting.
I think the rape is handled in the same way, it doesn't have proper, long-lasting consequences. It's only there to flip a switch from comedy to ~totally mature deep storytelling~ when needed.
the headphones were delayed because her partner who did all the work was sick of yuumei's shit and left.
they were college friends and yuumei drew the design of the headphone and her friend did Every Single Thing herself. Marketing, Engineering, finding production companies etc. The money was split 50/50 but the amount of work was unbalanced.
Yuumei is completely useless in real life and relies on her groupies to do everything for her.
I don't know how this plot works anymore either, the TGOEM thing is complete nonsense, they are godesses, they should percieve at least SOMETHING wrong with Persephone since the rape happened (NOT EVEN FUCKING ARTEMIS WHO LIVES WITH HER), but the only one that is able to know is Hera bcs she "feels" things but it's unable to know the whole truth, because we have to stretch that plot the most as posible.
She's more worry about being found fooling around with Hades that the fact that she no longer virgin and able to belong in the TGOEM.
And the filler chapter are eternal at this point.

I liked edith up until
Edit and philip got together tbh,it was interesting at first with edith dealing with her flaws and insecurities but when they became a thing it became basic
plus with the addition of a slight style change, its not drastic but i really dont like it, i miss how the earlier chapters looked. Another critique is the art itself, alot of times it just got lazier, practically all of it arent colored in properly wonky anatomy even in the first chapters it was a problem
The lack of backgrounds and its pretty obvious that swansgarden sucks at it too, texts on buildings or books looks so cheap she took it straight out of the fonts section and chooses the most basic and looking fonts that doesnt even look good and not even aligned properly to the perspective
cheese seasons 1 and 2 were really good but season 4 is a dumpster fire. plus the ending was super unsatisying. i feel like seol didn't get to full develop as a character because inho bailed and then she bailed on inha. and she worked herself to the bone and didn't even get into jung's dad's company…like is the rest of her life gonna be working at a second-rate company and seeing jung only ever so often? she's really passionless outside of studying. i liked jung's character a lot though.>>60257
i think devil no. 4 is good, art is nice and the past lives stuff is cool. i wish hana was less bland tho>>75064
yumi's cells is probably one of the most well-written and developed webtoons tbh. so many feels and it's so realistic and mature.
Ikr! The fandom just pisses me off tbh their fucking toxic
people are starting to complain about it
I never kept up with Edith, but I remember reading the chapters when it first came out and really liking how soft and delicate the colouring/lines were, it kinda reminded me of old french illustrations-esque. It was really charming, it made up for the wonky anatomy and faces.
Your comment made me look up the recent chapters and man, I can’t say anything in terms of the story, but the style really has changed. It’s lost that initial softness that really suited it, it looks like it’s downgraded. She probably had to adapt to a quicker style to keep up with the chapters but it looks well rushed and not as appealing.

Version day and night is getting featured
At first i liked it but overtime im kind off disliking it. I like the artsyle alot its very expressive but hate the lazy ass 3d backgrounds its so off putting and lazy af, if your gonna use that just trace over it atleast. i dunno if i'll drop it or not. The pacing is wierd sometimes i dont like it when it dedicates a chapter in another characters perspective with the same events that happened prior
The main female lead Candy is different for sure but does get annoying at times. She acts wierd and unapologetically detached and nonchalant its starting to get on my nerves
Especially jean, at first i liked him i like his design. Hes a very socially awkward guy, it was cute at first but now i find it insufferable, i rlly hate this one scene with him when he doesnt shut up about an assumption jfc…alot about him is just cringe but i guess thats the point but i cant deal with it anymore
The other guy who cant remember the name of i dont much to say about him other than he acts like a beta male around candy. I cant really fully criticize this comic because its fairly new so i'll give it a pass but i will not look forward in reading it again

Reading Hellbound and it's ehh. The comic art ranges from decent to 'off'. It's been going for one year, but the author only got the plot going these last few weeks. They main couple only met a few weeks ago and they still hate each other, but that didn't stop the author from drawing fan art of them together. I'm only reading the comic because I misread the plot synopsis and i'm to deep in to drop it.
Anyhow I came into this thread because I want to try and make a webcomic. How hard is it to get popular on webtoon if you have mid tier art (no gigantic perspective or proportion mistakes, but gets muddled in small anatomical details and not the best style) and basic writing skills. Is it hard to get big or is it more an update semi often thing? I can post art examples >>79510
I went to look at it yesterday after seeing this post and I finished Melvina's Therapy and caught up with Gremoryland.
I like how the author tries to explain things, but i am not sure if i really like it or not.

Was going to post this in a bad art thread, but realized here it may be more on topic…
This online comic will be 20 years old in August and it still looks like this. Sameface characters that make reading difficult, moomin faces everywhere, no backgrounds unless absolutely necessary (and the creator is an architect), no contrast whatsoever making the comic pages looking smudged… There has been no improvement since 10 years at least kek.
I can't believe I looked up to Fred Gallagher as a weeb teen. He is like a proto Yanderedev of webcomics. Poor skills, prone to drama (in the past) and unable to finish anything he starts.
>$2,000 - reached! per month
I will replace two pencil and color illustrations I am currently doing per month with two Megatokyo comics to produce a minimum of four Megatokyo comics per month - more if I can.
It's a joke, right? How can you be such a lazy turd when the comic has been your (presumably) main source of income for years and people are paying you. Or is he afraid of losing paypigs when Megatokyo is done and that's why he is stretching the convoluted mess forever? Anyway I am not surprised that it went from one of the most popular webcomics on the net to a forgotten mess that only the biggest psychofans continue to read .
Wtf this shit is still ongoing….looking like THAT?
Your post made me check his website and comparing the art to the first chapter he published back in 2000. Not only the art is worse, it's also depressing how the comic is basically an ugly walking corpse of early 00 weeb nostalgia.

Sameanon but, I decided to go through his old comics and this shit is sus as fuck.
Oh I know anon! Especially since the beta male protagonist is based on Fred (except not as fat). The angel is based on his wife (also much skinnier). I've always wondered how must she felt when her husband turned her into the only thing standing between him and fucking teenage waifus. In the newest pages the teenage-looking robot Ping is trying to become a prostitute to take place of her friend Junko. Seriously what the fuck.
When I was 13, I didn't see what a loser the main character was (cause he was ~in touch with his emotions~) and I didn't find it weird that a 20-something guy is lusting over teenage girls. Cause I was so mature, right? I'm disgusted by all this shit now.
I really loved the character of Miho (and her trainwreck of a relationship with Piro aka the self-insert), but part has also gone to shitter.
the Tsubasa in question is a male friend who let him couch surf "for a moment" (Piro kept playing video games and buying shit instead of doing anything to gtfo).

Is anyone reading the wolfman of wulvershire?
the way this artist puts a stark highlight behind the nose in almost every single panel is so fucking distracting and makes the faces look warped a lot of the times.
I wish I could find a better example on google, the app won't let me take a screenshot.
Only weebtons I actually like a lot are SWEET HOME, GREMORY LAND and CURSED PRINCESS CLUB.>>49303
Dropped True Beauty a long time ago, thought it was kinda cute at first but if you really think about it… I just hate the double standard. The main character is an ugly girl surrounded by handsome guys chasing after her (cliche, boring and predictable i know). Idk if the comic's supposed to teach "beauty isn't everything" but it's teaching exactly the opposite. It's very shallow and superficial and it's made for ppl who daydream about dating kpop bois. Also, the author is actually a pretty korean girl so she can't relate to her work but knows ugly and insecure girls'd fall for it.>>49444
I think the art in Lore Olympus is pretty even if it's inconsistent. TBH if the comic wasn't about greek mythology I wouldn't even read it - it's my weak spot. But the 'Hades-Persephone' romance is so annoying and she's just a boring character with no personality. Also hate how the author and ppl in the comments try to act all PC with greek gods and myths, wtf. BTW, there's a lot of greek myths about love between men and gods but I don't see any gay couple at all. Seems like the author isn't inclusive at all lol>>49659
Never read it but damn now they're self inserting tomboy girls in cheesy love triangles too? Leave my niche alone
Dunno but agree about the rest.
I really LOVE greek mythology so if anons have any recommendations pls let me know about it.
PS: I hate how dirty they did Apollo in this comic, compared to other gods he's actually pretty nice and has shown true love in a lot of myths.
He never raped Persephone or anyone that I know of so it's not just the art that's inconsistent but the historical accuracy as well.
end game is Kore marrying Hades, and since she's a goddess of fertility, probably curing him of his infertility and having kids.
Before that we'll probably get Hades finally learning about the rape and torturing Appolo, Kore standing up to her mom, and a redemption arc for Minthe where she'll graciously let Kore and Hades get together (or die tragically, maybe because of what her comically evil friend is up to).
So nothing related to the actual myths and characters at all.

When you put it like that it really is a boring and predictable story.
I have endless complaints about this comic too, look at the way the author portrayed Athena like what the fuck is that?
Looks like silver Hades LOL she's supposed to be a beautiful godess
The original plot of true beauty was supposed to be that the main girl’s personality was what made her attractive and that the main guy fell in love with her even after seeing her without makeup. But now each chapter is basically just a tutorial on how the main girl puts on makeup and huge illustrations of her outfit with some panels showing an idealized relationship with a kpop oppa in between.
A lot of webtoons skew so far from the original plot that it feels like the author completely forgot what the story was supposed to be about in the first place. Lookism also has this problem where the plot was really supposed to be about the main guy realizing his self worth but now it’s just about gang warfare. >>80823
LO’s fans are pretty much all girls who wish they were uwu soft smol beans like Kore and want to self-insert as the mpdg who will cure all of Hades’ problems.

I think so but the author got lost along the way and now it became a "girls can be ugly but guys cannot" cringefest.>>80833>>80835
You're on point about True Beauty. I'm yet so see what makes the main character's personality so "endearing".
Reminds me of fat girls thinking they're entitled to date a fit handsome model or incels wanting the perfect waifu, it's pathetic.>>80823
Maybe this comic attracts Percy Jackson fans and Twilight fans with the shitty romance and bland heroine idk
Only thing I know is that I love shitting on this comic
like imagine having a character that's literally a GOD OF SUN AND LIGHT and making him purple.

I think she's hot and hope she's gay lmao i keep hoping that she will appear again.
Honestly LO is pretty midtier in terms of narrative like… typical soap opera shit, but the art is kinda nice. I think mostly teenage girls hype it up bc it's Greek myth (the new hot trend) and clichey and sugarcoated enough even though it tries to appear mature, so they feel like they're reading the real grownup stuff. Tbh i quite enjoy it as entertainment, and i think the series (idk if it will be animated or live action) might do quite well since the writer clearly knows how to follow a predictable formula to success much like a discount Meg Cabot. I only hope actual classicists and/or greek myth enthusiasts don't have a stroke reading/watching it bc holy cow is it inaccurate from the whole Apollo-Persephone thing to, like anon said, comically evil Thetis, you know, the woman that took care of Hera's defect baby.
On that topic, i actually haven't read a single webtoon that is NOT soap opera shit, so either i have shit luck/taste in picking what to read next or it's just really what gets people's attention.
Pic related, at least the protagonist is gay and about to get it on with two cuties. My wish fulfillment shall be sated.

The author of True Beauty is also super vain and materialistic and Jugyeong is supposed to be her, so she's definitely written to be shallow on purpose. >pic related. look at her arms.>>80979
CPC has a good concept but it's starting to get caught up in the loop of just feeding the fans what they want and not actually progressing with the story.
So many webtoons get lost in this and circle around what fans want to see instead of progressing with a narrative.
CPC's art is also atrocious and the author really needs to work on improving her art. It's been out for a year and the art hasn't gotten better.

The sight of a weird anime 12yo girl face paired with a grown woman's body kind of disturbs me
I honestly thought the same thing about the art, is not the worst but it doesn't look natural to me.
Like anon said, the face looks too young for the body, but I think that it wouldn't look that weird if the features were placed better, like the mouth, is too small.
The premise sounded interesting at least, I'll try to give it the benefit of the doubt, maybe the art would get better as the story goes, or at least the story is enough to keep interest.
So, once I finish with a few chapters I will come back to give my first impressions.

Home Sweet Home is worse, because the main character is a complete asshole and only becomes a "caring/changed" man when the plot needs him to be. It just felt forced and I cant get into the comic without hating the main guy tbh

Whats about Red Moth? It's so underrated. The art's amazing AND the history too
Nah mate I’ have trauma shit behind me too, and while I understand trauma makes everyone react in every different ways, doesnt mean I gotta like this character or get mad at the way he reacted at his families funeral. >>83745
The plot is good, I’ll give it that. I’m also tired of good two shoes characters too, like horror is my favorite genre bc we get more intriguing characters but I still just can’t like the MC bc he’s shown to be a guy that’s a shut in who can’t stand people and wants to die until suddenly he wants to live and help others in the same chapter like I dunno, just feels like he’s only motivated by plot purposes to me
Naw you really have no reading comprehension whatsoever anon. Even in the prologue he's breaking down from the trauma of losing his family. His tough fuck the world and my family act is just that an act. And his entire hating his family thing is because of what happened at his school and how he had been a decent kid and never wanted to be the way he was.
You just want a reason to hate the character.
So True Beauty is confirmed making a drama and Cha Eun Woo is considering the offer to play Suho (shocker…). I like the art but there's like hardly a plot to the story, so wtf are they going to do when scripting the drama?
Is there a chance that the drama could be better than the webtoon? Probably not very likely.
I'm 99% sure the author wrote the character FOR Cha Eun Woo so he kind of has to take this role. I'm also p sure that the author is going to use this opportunity of making a drama to social climb with idols bc she's clearly obsessed with them.
News about Eun Woo here:https://www.allkpop.com/article/2020/04/astros-cha-eun-woo-in-talks-to-play-lead-in-upcoming-drama-true-beauty

they're turning this shitshow into a drama series. and cha eunwoo has been cast as the dude in pic related and has yet to accept the offer. these korean netizens are savage and i totally agree with them.
>6. [+56, -0] No but what are they wishing to accomplish with True Beauty as a drama? What's the potential in it…? To be honest, I don't even understand what depth of plot it has. It's basically just a basic girl who turns into a goddess with some makeup on, but the truth is that even her natural face is enough to sway men's hearts. Even when you look at idols who have bare face, you can tell they're pretty so I don't understand why plots are this are being made into dramas? Are they that desperate to get fame? The plot might be about Jookyung trying to pursue her dreams, but the reality is that all she does is putting on makeup
I can't tell if you're sarcastic or not but he's seriously ugly for a character that's supposed to be so handsome
maybe I'm just not seeing it because I don't consume korean media that isn't a webtoon

. It's super unrealistic and sexual for a high schooler and will only make the little girls watching it feel like shit.>>86053
Nta but atm he's pretty much considered the most handsome idol (and actor) to Koreans.
Just as an example, all comments on all articles on him are like that>1. [+1,361, -62] Eunwoo is really dominating everyone>2. [+1,241, -96] Cha Eunwoo looks prettier;;>3. [+957, -61] Idol killer Cha Eunwoo ㅋㅋㅋㅋ>4. [+112, -3] I used to think Shin Se Kyung had amazing beauty but she looks average next to Cha Eunwoo…>5. [+98, -5] I'm a man and all I see is Cha Eunwoo in this picture
or>1. [+1,192, -48] What kind of hater would call a face like this ugly ㅋㅋㅋ>2. [+876, -41] His face is like a sculpture, what an impressive face>3. [+772, -36] He doesn't seem human…
But he's also know to be super bad at acting lol

The story was never about self-acceptance, it was always just a self-insert fanfic for the author. There's not a single point in the story where Jugyeong doesn't consider herself fat and ugly even when she has makeup on. The goddess-type characters are even more exaggerated and "perfect" (by the author's standards). >when you wanna give her birthgiving hips AND huge thigh gap, so you have no choice but to also give her a 6 inch wide vag

My favorite photo of hers is the one where she shooped herself to be the same height as a doorframe.
the author's a cow kek, she should have her own thread>>86238
a lot of webtoons are like that, they become garbage along the way
I stopped reading canvas toons because it always goes on of three ways:
-the webtoon gets featured so they disappear for months and when it finally reboots you just have to wait weeks or months before they finally get through the part that you already read on canvas before
-they rarely update so you forget what the story even was about when it finally updates or the update pattern is very irregular
-midway through the story they stop updating all together, 9/10 times without letting the audience know why.
I just stick with featured webtoons now

Sage for old, but i genuinely prefer Wolfsbane's art over most of the popular Webtoons on the top list. Even if the bodies and faces are wonky some times they're dynamic and at least its not traced 3d anime models, with sterile, boring 3d backgrounds like you'd see in most of the comics mentioned in this thread.
Also, the fact that its traditional watercolor helps a lot. The transitions between panels are pretty good too.

I guess the main thing that always bugged me in lore olympus when i first started reading lore olympus is that hades became this insufferable emotionally weak simp rather than the stern, calm and collected leader figure but i guess i raised my standards to high and this is rachel's version…
Also, how come the comic forgot to address that hades and persephonie met before but he doesnt remember anything about the encounter? It could be addressed soon but its been awhile since that chapter

wonky eye aside but can she draw any other fucking female? I had to reread this because I legit just thought it was Persephone. Like I'm not that bothered by disney or anime same faces cause they tend to be different enough in mannerisms and styles that you can tell who is who. But come on she's even the same fucking shade as her.
I don't read LO but I'm a big Ancient Greece sperg and my understanding is that Hades is the most reasonable, level-headed male deity. He's the god of judgement, and is actually kinder than either of his brothers. Also everyone seems to forget that Persephone is Hades' niece lol
People only characterize him as evil/scheming because "hell" has been mistranslated as "Hades" in the Bible. Like yeah he tricked Persephone into eating pomegranate seeds, but at least he didn't turn into a goose and rape someone.
I think there's a difference between making a likable Hades and making a Hades that has a stutter because his daddy ate him and no one else seemed to suffer from this. Also, his personality flip from tolerable likable to dumb puppy cause woman who cares seems to be based on fan input from chapter to chapter.
Setting it up so the audience feels he was a better choice than Zeus when it came to Hera is even worse cause Hera is not innocent or nearly only benevolent at all, which seems to be her current portrayl.
Really, some of the personality points she becomes fixated on overusing seem random based on how her fans react to certain characters.
Ares is likable after like 2 chapters and only after fans calling him a soft boi but Apollo is a complete tool?? Really?
I hate how rachel did apollo dirty and the fans sperging about how much they hate him just annoys the living hell outta me so when he appears on a chapter or on a post on insta i just rather not read the comments
Ares had promise at first and does seem to care about persephone but i think he just became a joke now?

Personally I like Plunderworld's take on mythos it's fun and lighthearted and is woefully under appreciated on webtoon. Plus you know the art is far superior to the soap opera of pastel smudge. I mean Persephone actually has character beyond "Uwu so innocent"

By his wife they share an art style more or less with slight variations. This is one of the scenes without word bubbles. She has so much better designs than LO yet a massively lower viewcount. Also it's Punderworld, gonna blame brain fart for including an L in my previous post.

Same fag. These toxic
lore olympus stans, i guess your not allowed to like apollo, i like this version of him cuz he was portrayed in a better light
No, you're right, Apollo tried to forbid Cupid from using a bow and arrows, and as a revenge Cupid struck Apollo and Daphne so that he would fall in love with her and she would dislike him. So you're right, Apollo isn't really guilty in this situation, I'm sorry for my imprecision.
What I was trying to say is that Greek gods aren't good (though Apollo is a lot better than, say, Zeus) and depicting them as "normal" people is just super frustrating.
Its ok anon
Making them normal makes them more relAtaBLE

You know what someone should do (if it hasn't been done already?) Write a comic that's a parody of reality shows like Big Brother where all the gods live together in a big house and start drama. Because that's honestly what Greek gods are like. Most of them are shallow, catty hedonists. I mean jfc the Trojan war happened because Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite had a fight about who was prettiest, and many of the male gods are just frat guys who bone everything that moves.
Basically ancient Greeks' explanation for why shitty things happen was basically "the gods are a bunch stupid assholes."

Well it’s a mess definitely but still better than half the shit that’s been popular lately. I feel bad that she has so little subscribers though it really could be an interesting webtoon.
It sounds like a fun idea but given LO is a trashy soap opera anyone who made it would be accused of copying >>87116>>87119>>87120
Yea I was about to say essentially Appolo wasn't in control and made to act against his will. Which makes the LO take even worse cause we know what her 'cliffhanger' will be. Apollo 'rapes' Daphne gets caught and likens her to Persephone. So she can metoo him.
I seriously dont know why rachel chose apollo to be the villain when theres alot more shittier gods
Why not zeus Or something? He couldve disguised as someone else and then raped her. Plus hes hades brother that could stir up some real drama idk thats my 2 cents
Exactly. Didn't Zeus also had sex with Persephone at some point? His own daughter?
I'm getting real tired of the whole Persephone and Hades myth, there's so much more to explore - but ppl'd rather have a basic ass romance cliche
Percy Jackson is miles better than this shit
There's a screengrab of her admitting that he was the easiest to make a villain cause jock trope
. I can't find it but it's on her twitter somewhere. Really, lazy writing was he reasoning from the beginning.
Also I just saw she basically legit just drew Daphne as Persephone but with elf ears??? Why is she a water nymph and pink?? Why is she ignoring so much Greek canon all the gd time???

I never realized how much the top Webtoon authors make until I saw the TB author’s Instagram. Her living space in Seoul is huge, she dresses in luxury, and she regularly donates large amounts to charity.
Is it the people buying coins to read stories in advance that pays so much? I know that non-canvas authors have money deals with Webtoon but I didn’t expect them to be worth a whole living and more.

I found a webtoon that sadly isn't on the American LINE/Naver webtoon app but I really wish it was picked up for an official translation. It's called The Man who Cleans Up Make-up and I wish that it was picked up since it seems that it's what True Beauty is trying to be.
I just binge read the entirety of it and it's so insightful in terms of their makeup and photography commentary. You can tell the creator genuinely has something to say instead of living out a fantasy like True Beauty.
Not only that, but the "mean girl" characters are just handled so much better and tastefully.

Woman writer and the main character seems to be as self insert, you would be surprised about how degenerate female coomers can get.
I like it, tbh. The art is nice and there is a fair amount of male fanservice. Don't care much for the femdom aspect of it but it's interesting to see a sort of inversion of roles?
The rape scene was really out of place and unnecessary though, kind of weird how they brushed over it too.
I used to love this webtoon up until it turned into nothing but a rapey soap opera. >>87948
I found the english translation on some website and it seems so promising! Thanks a lot.

I was reading Gremory Land around the time chapter 2 was out and kept up. It has decent art and i like the horror elements. But now the comments are spammed with people shipping the stereotypical bully joke with the femme boy character and suddenly in the new chapter, the bully jock is a closet homo into the femme boy. I hate this shit so much. Just focus on horror, because this aint it. I would be okay if it was told better, but it is so clique and boring. His older work with Melvina's Therapy is such a better read.
Why do so many webtoon artists pander like this now?
File: 1589777221539.jpg (108.79 KB, 803x1171, sameface.jpg)
I've kept up with Sub Zero so far and I really want to like it but is anyone else as distracted as hell by the sameface syndrome? The author can draw 1 face and 1 facial expression at like 3 different angles. I don't think I can keep reading it anymore, it becomes more and more glaringly obvious the more characters are introduced.
(it's alright anon you're doing great)
imo I was never really into I Love Yoo since it felt like a standard kdrama plot, but everyone hypes it out to be "unique" and "fresh" so I read a few chapters. Shin Ae reminds me of a stereotypical notlikeothergirls lolsorandom self-insert protagonist and the plot feels like it's progressing at snail's pace. it goes on for so many chapters and it feels like it has a lot to say about nothing.
A lot of people like the fact that Shin Ae is from a poor background and that it's a refreshing take because it deals with the hardships of being working class, but I feel like Annarasumanara handled that a lot better.
Tbh, I went in expecting a silly K-drama romance, and I would have been happy if it delivered on that, but it's been more or less devoid of romance so far, and it seems like the author is backpedaling by changing the genre to "drama" 100+ chapters in.
Loved Annarasumanara, wish I could find more Webtoons of that caliber. I am definitely sick of the "I eat pizza and don't wear makeup, one of the boiz!!!1!" trope. I don't like the idea that the best female characters are supposed to be the ones that don't act female.
I dropped it a while ago because I felt there was just no real direction in the story and there was nothing really happening.
But when I read it I didn't mind it didn't have much romance, the typical one girl two guys love triangle is so fucking boring and I don't think this webtoon would've made it more interesting than usual.

Big jo was a pretty cute comic at first but then it became so irritating that i had to drop it. The art is fine (except the first few chapter with the different art style for some reason) but then the author started recycling some panels so much it became apparent that quality was no longer valued. Especially when the plot went down the drain with the 'odd couples' thing.

Something that bothers me about a lot of webtoon romances is how solipsistic and low key man hating it is. These feminist authors make comics about their self-inserts who want everything, but have nothing to offer. And on top of that some of them are making 6 figures indulging other married women and young sjws in this delusion. The male love interest never really feels like a man. Just a mouthpiece for them to talk about how stunning and brave they are. I'm sick of it.
Agreed. If they're self-inserts were actually stunning and brave, they'd be with those men IRL but they're not. Most of these women are with simps because they can't take criticism and they're only capable of writing about first world problems, so that's why they fantasize about these rich, handsome, and powerful men.
But the weirdest thing is that they're not content with being taken care of by high status men. They want to control them. These webtoon authors don't write realistic male characters because they don't care about understanding the male perspective. That's why they write stories completely in service of the female protagonist.
It's all about how special she is because the love interest chooses her over every other slut who wants to sleep with him. He's violent and more than happy to inflict violence upon anyone who's a threat to her. He can't even get an internal monologues about himself. It's written just to inflate her already massive ego.
But there's something kind of dark about this beyond being turned on by violent men and wanting to wield their power. There's deep seeded insecurity rooted in all of this.
Why control a powerful man instead of letting him take the reigns? Because they don't trust men. Either they subconsciously know they don't have anything to offer or they're damaged. A lot of feminists have weak/passive/emotionally neglectful fathers and it's no coincidence that most of them are unattractive and have been rejected by average men.
They act out of control because most men in their lives have been permissive of their toxic
behavior, so how could they trust strong men to stick around or benefit them? Any man worth his salt would leave.
Instead of bettering themselves and increasing their odds of getting their dream man and keeping him, they would rather cope with their horniness and lack of male attention with these self-indulgent romance stories. Since they're getting paid and flooded with praise from young, impressionable fans and permissive cat ladies/karens, there's not much incentive for them to change.
And that's why I've written this essay. I'm frustrated and I want to finally get romance comics about strong women who are willing to better themselves and respect men. Not man-hating fap material about privileged woman who want to sit on their ass all day and be coddled, while simultaneously having everything handed to them.
that's something out of someone's control but the author's especially on a platform where everyone can publish their first draft, without editors and beta readers and criticism (pre-publish). The readers are also new to the webtoon scene or not have read stories (good ones) to bring comparison or reference to the ones you're complaining about. Also, a lot of stories are like those you talked about because people like those plots and characters and wanted their own version of it despite not having any differences with each other but the names, places, and etc.
Also, it gets views, traffic and fans, and also income.
I can put up with a lot of different tropes, but there is one I'm getting sick of, I don't know what to call it, torture porn?
I've been noticing a lot of webtoons, especially Asian translated ones, about high schoolers or middle schoolers who are brutally bullied. Like, chapters and chapters straight of them being beaten up, stepped on, yelled at, so on, by literally every person in their life - all of their classmates, their teachers, their coaches. At some point, it doesn't seem to serve a narrative purpose, it's more just there for shock value.
Has anyone else noticed this? #Killstagram is one example, Random Chat is another. I suppose this is popular because teens find this thrilling and taboo? It just gets kind of boring and annoying after some point.
What's an example of a mainstream romance story aimed at men that is misogynistic? I'll concede to your point the day I see an openly anti-feminist man getting paid to write low-key woman hating stuff on Webtoons.
And my problem isn't with wish fulfillment. It's wish fulfillment starring detestable/boring protagonists that I have an issue with. Webtoons is flooded with these sort of characters.
What a bizarre rant.
So men get to watch porn where ugly middle-aged men get their pick of stunning, surgically-altered 18 year old girls who are happy to be choked, tied up, spit on, have cum in their eyes, and anal… But women can't enjoy a little wish-fulfillment where a cute girl gets with a cute guy and have a cute romance?
I consider myself pretty feminist but I really don't find webtoons that "problematic
" at all, especially considering the lack of violence and nudity on the platform. Silly cheesy wish-fulfillment romance novels or movies have been around for decades and shockingly, the human race and marriage and teen girls and whatever have been doing just fine. This is just another case of people demonizing pleasures meant for women (romance novels, magazines, soap opera TV's, fashion, makeup, sex not meant for procreation, ringing the devil's doorbell.) Find something else to whine about.
I had a phase where I ate those kinds of stories up, still have a thing for them, especially stories about bullying. Japanese manga and dramas about bullying are more interesting because they are so dramatic, western stories are too tame in comparison. It's probably not a shocker to anyone that I was bullied badly in hs.
I feel these stories give teens an opportunity to idk commiserate? Like hey this protag's life is as shitty as I'm feeling, so I'm not alone.
Oh yes, depression rates have increased for women because of feminism and romance Webtoons. Not for any other myriad of reasons, like… mental health/depression not being seen as a real thing until a few years ago thus skewing data, people spending time inside of traffic jams and stuffy offices instead of doing outdoor labor, modern day stresses like $100,000+ student loan debts and nuclear warfare.
It was women getting the right to vote and the ability to publish romance novels that made them depressed.
I think you're oversimplifying. Of course women are depressed about having to work 40+ hrs a week and pursuing worthless degrees. Who told them they'd be happier if they did that? You think women in the past were more depressed raising their family and chilling at home than today's feminists who are actively trying to cancel anything that offends them? And nuclear warfare isn't impacting people as a whole on a domestic level so not sure why you're bringing that up. We're more likely to die during our commute to work than a nuke from North Korea.
Webtoons is problematic
, but it's not the problem. It's only a reflection/symptom of a much more complex issue.

Aaaaanyways can we go back to talking about Webtoons instead of whining about how voting rights and education are the harbinger of womankind's downfall or whatever? Thanks.

You know what story is 100x more popular than 50 Shades, Twilight, Lore Olympus, and whatever else you want to talk about?
Gangbang porn, barely legal porn, anal porn, threesome porn, rape porn, pee porn, scat porn, whatever you consider "degenerate."
For every 1 15 year old girl who watches Twilight once a year there's probably 100+ adult men jerking it to 10+ daily porn videos.
Anyhow, your opinions are stupid, and this is a thread for discussing good/bad webtoons, not crying about feminism and how webtoon is the downfall of civilization. If harem manga isn't mainstream, neither is Webtoon. Move on queen.

I am baffled at how much rachel regressed in terms of art. This artstyle imo is a THOUSAND TIMES BETTER than what we ended up getting. Plus its interesting seeing persephone having this stern and mature gaze rather than the mary sue uwu cinnamon roll hooker baby doll shit and having a bit more varied color choices rather than the boring thing we got
Lore olympus is trash but this artstyle is charming and less wonky looking atleast
I dont think so? The creator said she removed it cuz she wanted to change or figure out the story. Cmon only 1 chapter in and you gave up. She nuked her other quIRKY comic too>>92435
I wouldnt recommend it but its your choice
What does wish fulfillment fantasies have to do with feminism? I'm honestly so confused. Is every isekai male mc harem writer a feminist? Obviously people like low brow pandering shit.>>92435
Nope, it's legitimately awful. I would rather read True Beauty instead.
try it and decide for yourself if you think it´s worth reading.>>92436
I´ve not looked at the entries, but didn´t the rules state that small artists have equal chances to artists with large followings?>>92440
it's kind of selfish in a way but at the same time, if I were that instagram artist I'd take every opportunity for more exposure or whatever they get out of that contest too. I don't think it's unreasonable they take this chance to get further ahead. It's not an charity for the uwu poor deprived small artists.

It's not cute but I'm digging I want to be you, Just for a day. It's up to chap 19 on other sites, but Webtoons is giving it a go.
It's not the wish fulfillment that's an issue. It's the way the female
protagonist and the male love interests are written. And it's possible that some authors of isekai harems are feminist in a way. Often times the women in those stories treat men really poorly. Female domination is a common trope in anime/manga. But at least with those stories the MC is OP so he at least has that going for him. Even if it's unrealistic it makes more sense than stories where the MC has nothing to offer but still gets a harem or hot love interest anyway.(ban evasion)
I dropped Let´s Play because I just got too much second hand embarrassment from reading it>>92531
Dream constellation! The art is slightly peculiar imo but it´s unique and has it´s charm. The story is really cute and wholesome.
Dude, why are you so obsessed with feminism ? These webtoons are literally just fantasies about unconditional love where the female MC is bland enough for anyone to project onto. How are isekai male MCs better ?
Also, femdom is a male fantasy, it has nothing to do with feminism.
And overall, romance webtoons are not feminist or men-hating, they're just supposed to make the reader feel good by projecting. If the characters don't have a personality, it's because the author is lazy or just bad, that's all.

Same anon that posted this. I did some digging and found this
This is rachels other comic "the doctor foxglove show"
Im just blown away at how better the art is. The character designs are a bit more varied and consistent than LO but its still kinda wonky at times. I always had the impression that rachel always had juvenile art by looking at the original deleted lore olympus and the 1st few chapters of it, from the wierd faces (noses and mouths especially), wierd and almost broken poses and general inconsistency but i was wrong. I also assumed that she cant draw old people and other designs apart from her generic male and female types, she can its just that she stopped trying when she can get way with it and get paid. As for the premise itself…its interesting but this only has 3 chapters so i cant say much about it. I said it once i'll say it again she regressed imo
File: 1590547029637.jpg (4.71 MB, 3072x3400, 20200527_100549.jpg)
The main character is kinda…pretentious tho understandable cuz sexISM
From the pic here really put me off tho. She apparntly fucked over this guys eye and continued to insult him for no reason other than shes annoyed that shes not allowed to practice doctor stuff with the other guys which btw she wasnt allowed cuz she fucked over the other guy i mentioned then cries about it like a little bitch when she gets put in her place
Theres also this persephone and apollo dynamic going so yeah we know now where she got that idea in LO (in the og LO apollo was her abusive
boyfriend or something so hades and persephone just cheat on theyre partners i guess)
Sage for old but as someone who's been active in the Percy Jackson fandom for long time, there was a period of them when the fandom was mostly dead while Lore Olympus was alive and kicking, and every single time PJO fans posted about the gods specific to our
canon, Lore Olympus fans would flood the comments with "Oh, but that's not the ~canon~ Greek mythology unlike Lore Olympus!! Rachel Smythe did so much research!!"
I'm sick of people sperging about canon Greek mythology when in reality it is basically just a fanfiction compilation, especially LO and classical Hades fans.
Punderworld is a blessing. I wish Punderworld had blown up instead of Lore Olympus, because the creator genuinely seems to care about telling a story in a fresh and fun way

Ava's demon is now on webtoon for some reason
Atleast its not as frustrating to read now with her dumb 1 panel layout but it does feel like an excuse not to update her comic (despite having a huge fanbase and popularity already so i see no real reason to branch out) since early december(funny enough this webtoon happened around october) but i'll give her some slack since shes been working on the comic nonstop for 3 years i think since her last long hiatus
If your updated on the website the whole 8 years of story shes been working on happens in a span of 2 FUCKING DAYS. Michelle really fucked herself over with the layout
I really liked the art of LO too. It's always been more or less wonky and inconsistent but eh, I can somewhat look past that. You only look at one image for a short time when reading it anyway.
What really puts me off is how Persephone is such a blatant self-insert. It would be fine, but when I saw a pic of the author and realized she even looks like Persie, I really lost all interest. Like lol I'm not gonna spend coins on her literal fanfic of herself, starring her damn self with that pixie cut and pouty face.

I still read Let's Play too but I can't get over how dumb the "Broken Heart Syndrome" thing is. She could have just chosen a non-cringy more likely disease. Also i remember, in the last Q&A someone asked the artist "has your original couple changed?" and she said nope. Obviosuly it's not established that endgame for her are Marshall and Sam but pretty guessable imho.

I've been reading some of the Webtoons Greenlight comics, but I already hate the most recent one based on this promo picture alone. It screams "quirky random humor XD lolz so random!! Glittery man and lamb-chicken!1" I thought we left this in 2009.
Maybe A Good Day To Be A Dog and Refund High School? Both are romances in school settings but A Good Day To Be A Dog is about a romance between teachers while Refund High is between students. Both are cheesy, particularly A Good Day To Be A Dog, but still pretty cozy.>>93535
I haven't kept up with TB but iirc they don't ever mention him wearing makeup. Suho is supposed to be a ~natural beauty~ but doesn't have stained lips and stencil brows though.
I just read the entire thing. Its actually terrible and embarrasing if you ask me
I even saw people criticize (albeit, lightly) it in the comments which is pretty rare in webtoon
a lot of the webtoons that are originally from Naver are heavily pushed by the webtoon team. It makes sense since Naver owns Line and of course they want to push what ever makes the big buck in Korea even if an American audience finds it mediocre.>>93535
He's naturally~ that way anon, he only uses the makeup to enhance
his look uwu. If it's not obvious, I hate this comic.

Lonely, Lonely Fireflies is very cute, simple romance manhwa. I say simple because the characters aren't fleshed out at this point of the story, but they might develop later.
Although I have yet to see anything romantic happening, the friendship is written pretty well. It can be too reverse-harem esque sometime… enjoyable nonetheless.
If you don't mind older female younger male romance, you might enjoy Que Sera, Sera and Four Years Apart.

No matter how fancy her 3D model rendering is the artwork still looks so bland and lazy compared to it
ghad, the background looks terrible. i always have issues with webtoons concerning their background especially in modern setting, cause some comics really don't try to modify the 3d buildings or things and just leave it as it is. Can't they simply trace over it and implement their style so it wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb?
and you're right, anon. the character looks half-finished. like it lacks details.

has anyone read the fan made webtoon of mystic messenger? haven’t read it myself, i really loved the game but didn’t like the self insert aspect of it and the webtoon seems like the person who made it based the MC off themselves and they’re writing a fanfiction rather than using the default one from the game lol. really love the art and seeing the characters again though
what do you guys think about it if you’ve read it? is it worth paying for?

lmao these exact panels contributed to me stopping reading the comic at all. Shame, since I like the story idea.
Are there any other webtoons that in any way tap into the darker side of idol culture and manufacturing? I'd really be interested, but haven't found any.

I know some people have been asking for really cute/cozy webtoons. Brass & Sass is an adorable romance about high schoolers in band class who actually act like high schoolers (unlike most webtoons where they act like miniature adults.) It's not really groundbreaking or anything, it still has some of the same old webtoon romance tropes, but it's a cute read and I think the art is nice!

I know Wolfman of Wulvershire was briefly mentioned earlier in this thread. The artwork is a little wonky the first few chapters, being oddly geometric and angular, but I think it's settling into a much better place a few chapters in. I do appreciate that the artwork is kind of unique and stylized.
Can't say much on the plot since we aren't that far in yet, but I do feel mystery/romance is a genre I haven't seen much of in webtoon, plus I appreciate that the characters are actual adults. I have high hopes for this one.

You should read cursed princess club. All time favorite comic on that hell app. The story and art are so adorable and the protagonist has flaws, definitely not a self insert or Mary Sue. Also it's funny and quirky

Who else is bothered whenever LO does these wacky ass faces in a middle of a serious moment?
For me personally it takes me out of the scene plus its annoying and comes off as trying too hard
Sometimes I just don't care how ugly people draw. It's good if the story is good- but god, just try drawing different things, characters can't be copies of each other, it means to me that the author know shit about drawing and it's automatically cancelled for me.
In Poland we have this "manga" author - even her fans can't tell apart her characters.

Went to check the newer chapters and idk I think the quality is better save for a weird ass face here and there like in pic related. Their lips don't look so chapped either anymore.

Not to be nitpicky or anything but there's just something that just feels off about Midnight Poppy Land. I'm not sure what it is, but something about it just feels so unnatural? Like a hazy fever dream instead of something that's actively happening? The art is objectively good and the writing is alright but I just can't place my finger on why it feels so uncanny.

What do you think about "Weak Hero"
I really like the story and characters, but art is kinda not in my taste.
I thiiink it has something to do with how the head of the girl looks like that of a child but she has giant boobs but she's also wearing a top with a kid's pattern on it. Also the body looks really weird in that particular drawing. I dropped it when it went from canvas to featured for that reason, it does feel very uncanny.
What does everyone think of Muted? I really liked it initially but now it's just kind of meh and I'm not sure why

Young blood's main protag is a generic mary sue. The author is apparently rewriting the story so I hope they change her character. Also the author gets salty whenever somebody comments that her character looks like Ariana grande lol.
omg her EAR and TIT>objectively good art
Big agree, I might drop this one because the sameface is way too distracting. I also hate how the artist only knows how to draw faces at like 3 exact angles.
Hell, even the male and female characters look pretty similar. The protagonist and main romantic interest (forgot everyone's names) could be passed off as siblings.
Not to mention that the plot and characters are straight off ripped from Lore Olympus.
>main heroine is a Mary Sue with pink hair who dresses like a child prostitute>body of main character is constantly oversexualized>lives together with side kick friend>love at first sight>main guy is dark & brooding>unrequited love, other chick is obsessed with main guy>the main characters meet again at a party
The author even put a Hades & Persephone spin off at Chapter 4…
This is so cheap, why can't authors on webtoon make original and interesting plots and characters?
File: 1592941917085.jpg (56.02 KB, 540x540, bojo.jpg)

It is one of the most popular webtoons.
It's kinda shitty that she deleted her earlier Webtoon to build hype for Light Years Away but still ended up deleting LYA anyway. It could be because of her anxiety, though.>>96644
Nitpick but I don't like how the entire Webtoon has chromatic aberration filter over it. It strains my eyes and I feel like it's a cheap cop-out for an ~aesthetic~ effect. Otherwise it's pretty inoffensive and the art is nice.>>96917
I think most anons here tend to overlook action-oriented Webtoons. Understandable though, Webtoon scrolling format paired with motion blur makes it nauseating to read. I think action works better in the traditional comic format.

What I find weird about webtoons is a lot of them draw teenage/early twenties girls with an unrealistic and kinda sexualised body type (True Beauty is just the first that came to mind, the convenience store one is another big one). Like huge boobs, tiny waist, thigh gap. Which is weird because webtoons are aimed at girls. Like if we compare them to old shojo manga, even girls who are supposed to be beautiful still have an essentially realistic body type (relatively).
I at least like that in Lore Olympus Persephone is a bit soft and squishy despite having an hourglass figure.
Afaik, the girl's body in True Beauty is just the Korean beauty standard - girls are expected to be like 90 lbs but somehow also have giant hips and boobs. In kpop irl, female idols do crap like eat only 800 calories a day then wear hip and boob padding once they lose any curve to them. Its screwed up.

i like this comic a lot, it's one of the best narrative-wise on webtoon and has a really unique world design and aesthetic. it's the one comic on the site that has an actual grown up story, with deep characters and a worthwhile plot.
that being said…the pacing is genuinely torturous at times. the author tries to make you care about side characters and plots way to much. he disrupts a perfectly paced chapter with ramblings on psychological themes that air on the side of cringe. i stopped reading for A YEAR and binged on the hundreds of episodes only to find myself at the point of having to wait another few months so i don't have to deal with the short, meaningless episodes before another major plot point happens.

Jugyeong is supposed to have a chopstick body according to the author. Pic related is what she considers curvy, which is absolutely ridiculous. I'm not surprised, though, since the author also got body shaping surgery and photoshops like crazy on top of her surgeries.
I hate how the webtoons stans are always like "omg!! The author looks like jungyeon irl!!1!"
Uh duh, she has a toxic
beauty standard that she draws her characters in, and shoops herself to hell and back to fit. She didn't come out of the womb looking like that.

This series pisses me off so much, you think the eventual message the story wants is: "inner beauty, love yourself etc etc" but the MC is so fucking shallow.
The moment I dropped was when another girl gained weight and MC was like "oof
she fat now, I'm gonna avoid her, how embarrassing"
I hope the MC gets the worst fucking bad end, she's a "not like other girls" stereotype

Seconded. This is seriously amazingly cute and funny and a little too relatable? I've never related this hard to a webcomic protagonist before.
lurked on the artist's Twitter and it's a MtF who regularly uses r/egg_irl and has a kawaii anime girl as personal avatar so yeah, it's serious.
I started reading it for laughs and it's literally about a boy whose sister gives him a kawaii uguu makeover and he suddenly decides to transition to "be a cute anime girl" and make his life less shitty. It's absolutely awful even on a so bad it's good way and I can't believe it got popular enough to deserve a banner

What do you think about Gremory Land in it's current state?
Sorry for poor quality pic.
I am not too sure what to think of it… I had bigger hopes for it tbh, but given the author’s “style” I kind of knew it wouldn’t happen. I kind of dislike how much he tries to make so much social commentary on an abundance of things? I don’t know got to properly say it, but I dislike how he tries almost too hard to push that society’s harmful ideas are the blame for everything I guess. It’s one of the one only horror webtoons with decent art that doesn’t have alien looking characters though, so I am sticking to it until the bitter end…
What about you anon? What did you think of it?

I think the black and white worked pretty well for Melvina, but the color is more suited for Gremory. It goes with the park theme and set the ambiance. I would love to go to a park like that, minus the killer attractions of course lol.
I kind of want to stop reading for a while since the chapters feel so short sometimes though! l In a good way, but still. I really wanna see how it will end.. Do you think glasses chick that died first is still alive?
At first everyone on the comments was convinced of it, but it seems she has been forgotten now lol. I agree with you on the triangle bitch though! Can't wait for her actions to bite her in the ass sometime soon.
I loved Melvina's therapy, but so far I'm not entirely thrilled by this story yet.
The tunnel part with Bruno genuinely scared me though, so I'm not dropping the story yet.>>97466
I agree with this post. Something about this story is a bit… off? I feel like Melvina's therapy had similar themes of targeting society issues, but it was more subtle? I hope this series gets better. I think this cast drags it down a bit.
So far I only care about Bruno and the blonde girl. I think glasses chick is alive. The way she died was so sudden and forgotten about, it reminds me of junko from dangan ronpa
I noticed this trope with Asian media, too. It's always, "A really beautiful girl is bullied by people because she's beautiful. Often times, there is a main antagonist female bully that gangs up on her, has her killed and/or raped by her male friend(s)"
Two examples of this are the RPG Misao, and the Creepypasta comic I Eat Pasta for Breakfast.
I've seen it in more things than just those two, but I can't remember them. It's this weird fantasy where everyone hates you "because you're so beautiful", and issues like rape are just tossed around. And of course, it always takes place in a school setting.

I think the cause of the art being so weird is the author's heavy usage of 3D models. They're fine to use, especially for backgrounds, but when they become a crutch it shows.

Looks like Jugyeong will most likely be played by Moon Ga Young in the True Beauty drama.
I’m kind of surprised, tbh. I thought they were going to aim for a 100% idol-actor cast since Cha Eunwoo was already cast for Suho. She’s not really what I envisioned Jugyeong would look like irl either.

Park Yoona has also been cast as Sujin (the mean girl) in the TB drama>>97900
Probably with (ironically) more makeup. I wouldn't be surprised if they took out the part where she's ugly and instead made it so she's just plain without makeup.
the creator has a really bad habit of trying excuse a person's flaws and toxic
behavior because MUH CHILDHOOD.
In Melvina's therapy; the serial killer who butchered all the parents and left the kids alive had the worst reveal. Ziggy killed everyone's parents because his own abused him? it was so random.. and nothing ever came from it. they still acted like it was sad he killed himself. what the fuck
And now with Gremory Land, we have Bruno, who seems to be a closet gay, but acts super homophobic and toxic
because muh childhood. It's exhausting
File: 1593876338605.jpg (60.57 KB, 798x638, thistoiletwad.jpg)
Sorry, not Bruno! I meant this dude. Haha, my apologies, anon.
Lol, great image choice!>>97984
Yes.. He really tries to push that agenda in his works. It was already there in Melvina’s therapy, but it’s even pushed more in this one.
I think what makes it feel forced/bad is that we know nothing of these characters other than their sexuality. I don't mind tropes that fall into this category of "struggles with LGBT life".
But what makes this case feel bad is that Rami and the jock guy (i dont remember their names) have no character outside of being gay (and having a small penis for the jock I guess?).
The jock guy is killed before we get to know anything more about him, with each chapter only being dedicated to how he was a bully. If he's such an asshole, why is Rami and the other characters friends with him? It feels really weird and I think it's just difficult to differentiate each character before they die bc we're shown the bare minimum to them
>>98151>If he's such an asshole, why are the others friends with him
That's honestly a really good point! He made these characters try to fit these weird tropes and doesn't do any real character development with them. Both Bekka and Jax are killed off really early on
so why would i care about them at all? It's really poor writing compared to Melvina's therapy, where he really only focused on two real main protags at once, so it was more fleshed out. I'm still gonna continue reading Gremory land, but it's definitely disappointing in comparison.

Ok I finally read The Sock Monster (aka Socks Goblin) and I'm kinda seething at the stupid "side stories" post-epilogue because there's really no content between the main couple. They kiss on the cheek once, get engaged OFF SCREEN, and get married and have a child OFF SCREEN. I wanted Lala and Sujin's relationship to be elaborated upon in the side stories since the main comic ends at the point where they confess their feelings.
But no, we get to follow sujin's dumb loli sister and her weird relationship with the adult shopkeep REEEE

Anons, what are your opinions on "DON'T HATE"?
File: 1594081192250.jpg (36.79 KB, 350x489, nice-to-meet-you-51214.jpg)
What do you anons think of Nice To Meet You? I think it's a cute webtoon but the main girl gets really annoying at times, especially when it's tried to pass off as "kawaii, ditzy klutz!! uwu".
if it's like other dramas, they'll just give her fucked up hair lol
what a joke
Huge tinfoil but True Beauty's author only wrote the webcomic to get it adapted into a tv drama so she could meet male idols. She's a talented artist (and shit writer) who saw the live action adaptation success turnover rate of other webtoons (Cheese in the Trap, Gangnam Beauty, Extraordinary You) that were made into drama adaptations and sought to take advantage of that. Being thirsty for some male idol dick, she figured that she would write a character that could only
be played by Cha Eunwoo in order to get close to (or fuck) the hottest male idol. That attempt isn't a total long shot because she's a good looking girl herself.
I don't think my theory is that far fetched if you consider that she's a huge idol fan and you look at how many webtoons were announced/made in just 2019 alone.
Link here: https://www.kpopmap.com/23-dramas-of-2019-based-on-webtoon/
she seems like a chaebol so if she really wanted to she could just arrange some time of meet up.
I don't think the webcomic authors have much say in which actors they want either. The CITT drama is notoriously known for going against the author's wishes, which led to a movie adaptation with different actors.

Can popular social media artists stop pulling Webtoons out of their ass for just one minute? I feel like every time I see an artist on Instagram or Twitter, they're asking their fans if they should make a Webtoon even when they have no story to tell. They don't even try to shoot for a slice of life. They pull a random ass plot out of absolutely nowhere and their existing fanbase just eats it up. It drowns out Canvas creators who genuinely have a story to tell.
Pic related is Anomaly Alliance made by megikarp on Instagram, which is actually slightly higher tier than the usual.

What does everyone think of The Four Of Them? Everyone's been hyping it up to be the most realistic and relatable Webtoon, but I could never get past chapter ten. The protags are so unlikeable and act more like middle schoolers than high schoolers.
I dropped it months ago. I thought the characters where annoying and the story overall boring. Didn't know they were supposed to be highschoolers.
Is there anything WORTH reading that also updates regularly?

Any recommendations for a decent romance webtoon? I'm following I Love Yoo and Edith but I'm so dissappointed in both of them. I read A Good Day to be a Dog and Untouchable and found them decent, but I disliked Cheese in the Trap and Days of Hana

What are your thoughts on the recent lore olympus updates?
also wtf is up with the lower half of the paper bag and why is there a piece of bread hanging???

A lot of her perspective mirrors my own and I have similar reservations about the content being directed at a young (teens - early 20s) audience.
I enjoy Lore Olympus, but I'm almost in my 30s now. It's easy for me to understand Persephone/Hades is shallow, overidealistic and inappropriate. But I can acknowledge all that and suspend my real world outlook to enjoy it as the fluff it is.
" is that while the author repeatedly has her own characters say, "This is wrong, the age gap is wrong, he's her boss so there's a power imbalance, they don't really know each other," it ultimately all falls on deaf ears because ~destiny~. In a mythological story, sure whatever. But this specifically portrays several of the gods including Persephone as teenagers, is being marketed to teenagers, and lord knows they will feel it excuses the same in reality. "Oh he's 30 years older than me? He's my boss? He's already in a relationship but ogling me? All this just means he loves me sooo much and is able to overlook all that!"
I bought into this myself so it hits close to home. Was in a relationship with a massive age gap and didn't see anything wrong with it because LURVE - spoiler, it didn't last and I wasted many years of my life supporting a grown ass man when I should have been out having fun and being a kid, because that's exactly what I was. Part of the reason I thought everything was fine was because media like this said age doesn't matter, even if everyone around you says it's weird and inappropriate, you're in love so it's fine! But nah. Adults getting involved with children is manipulative and creepy as fuck and I wish more media expressed that
rather than "love conquers all." Because sadly, impressionable children believe and get hurt because of it.
Thanks for your input anon. I'm sorry about what happened to you, and hope you're doing better.
In any case, Lore Olympus reads like a thinly veiled ddlg fantasy but wrapped up in a package of ~true love~ and complex characters.
The fans justify the large age gap and power dynamics by saying it already existed in Greek mythology, and if Rachel changes that aspect, then it won't be the same story anymore, but why did Rachel choose that to be the one thing she kept in? She changed literally everything other than the age gap, and the assault plot is really only there to bring the ship together and create unnecessary tension.
It's so tactless and distasteful. Hades and Persephone don't have a healthy romantic relationship, they view each other exclusively sexually, with a heavy focus on each others' bodies, but because Lore Olympus repeatedly tells us (not shows us) that they were meant to be, and that they make each other happy, the young fans eat it all up. It's so transparent.

Normally I don't mind 3D backgrounds in Webtoons, as jarring as they are, because I understand that creators have a deadline to meet and need to cut corners.
That being said, at least Webtoons like Let's Play and I Love Yoo look like they put some effort into meshing characters with the environment.
The latest chapters of Edith have been so… Lazy.
I wanted to mention how bad the 3d background are in edith
I prefer badly drawn backgrounds over 3d ones

Killing Stalking suffered from the 3D backgrounds too. I remember during the xmas and holiday chapters, everything was literally MS painted into the background and it was so jarring that it was hard to finish the chapter.

There's no denying that these look uncanny as hell but I think what makes the backgrounds in Edith especially bad is the fact that the lineart of the characters is loose and the proportions are cartoony, so the realistic 3D backgrounds just stand out horribly.
Though I remember someone on Reddit talking about one panel of Killing Stalking that consisted of a single 3D model of a remote,front and centre with no shading or effort put into it. Pic related.

To Love Your Enemy, a new Thursday webtoon, is pretty fun. The art style is similar to True Beauty (but better imo). The characters actually look different from each other and they're a lot more expressive.
Yeonhee, the MC, comparatively has an interesting backstory that isn't "I was nerdy and bullied in middle/high school for being different" and it isn't forgotten about in favor of the shipping.
Also if cheating and looking ahead on Naver is any indication, it gets into
a fake dating plot and I'm a sucker for that shit

Gremory Land is changing things up a bit it seems
How does anyone feel about the main cast all dying (with no closure on Bruno or the blonde girl), and this new cast of characters? Does anyone else feel going in the same path as Melvinas Therapy? I’m actually getting pretty hyped about this comic now, wondering how it’ll change
File: 1598089036218.jpg (113.77 KB, 1000x501, the_missing_o_12325.jpg)
Title of the webtoon is "The Missing O"
Sex can be amazing, not to mention ecstasy inducingly mind-blowing. And Eunsung knows that because 7 years ago, she had good sex (an understatement). She felt the universe crack open to show her its secrets. Too bad she hasn't had a decent orgasm since. It's been a long journey, but everyone knows, before you get to "P," you have to go through "O."
It's quite a funny webtoon, I like the quirky and loud personnality of the main girl, plus the male MC is hot. The art is wonky at first, but you can see the improvement throughout the story. Yeah, quite a fun read at first, but I have absolutely no interest for the two other couples. You have a lesbian couple which kinda comes out of nowhere (the way they catch feelings for each other is barely showed, they just fuck and oh, they fall in love. Plus, one of the girl had a boyfriend before, and it is never implied that she is somewhat attracted to girls. You feel like the lesbian romance was just introduced to add diversity, and nothing else, no depth, the two characters barely had interactions, and then the autor just paired them up)
Then the degenerate femdom sub relationship where the girl (Okjae) is quite selfish and abusive.
If you just wanna put your brain aside and just watch smut with clichéd romance, read it, but don't dwell too much on it if you want a solid plot.

I started Yumi's Cells despite it being long as shit thanks to anons in this thread recommending it and I like it except for its shitty portrayal of women. Every single female character is desperate for a dude and hates on every woman that gets close to their LI, including the protagonist. No wonder the comic is written by a dude

I just started this webtoon called "Soara Academy", I think it's a re-upload or something like that.
I find the concept and art style very cute, the main character isn't exactly likeable to me, but there are very few episodes so…
"Welcome to a world where humans have bird characteristics. Follow Tony, an ostentatious budgie (parakeet) as he enters the school of his dreams, Soara Academy. Born with a rare trait, he finds himself being avoided by his peers. But that alone won’t stop him from finding true friendship and joining a flock!

I feel like I Love Yoo is starting to become like the Rick And Morty of Webtoons in terms of its fanbase.
Point out any issues with its pacing and lack of direction and you'll be met with fans who claim that it's because the Webtoon is too complex for shallow people to understand. Some fans are even calling it a "class drama on par with Bong Joon-Ho".
Quimchee keeps setting up so many different plotlines and never giving any resolution, and chapters on end are just characters brooding about life sucking.
Shin-Ae is a passive and static protagonist who never grows or changes outside her r/notlikeothergirls personality, but fans claim it's a realistic depiction of childhood trauma affecting real life relationships.
The fans hype it up for its extremely subtle symbolism that's literally a signboard behind a character that reads "poor actor".
I enjoy it, but it annoys me that fans make it more sophisticated than it actually is.
There are some moments that are funny or clever, but most of it is just shoving into your face how much of a victim
Shin-Ae is. If you don't enjoy her as a protagonist, it gets really fucking annoying.
I really liked the first couple of chapters of I Love Yoo where it was this silly drama-romance love triangle between two brothers. But then it just got really depressing and it was like, everyone being sad all the time, with no romance?
Am I insane, or when I Love Yoo first came out it was tagged as "romance," but now the "romance" tag is gone?
I just felt bamboozled because it definitely sets itself up as a romance then all the romance disappears.
Apparently it was always intended to be a drama Webtoon but Webtoon refused to let it be under anything other than romance, according to the creator…
Which is bs because why the fuck would Webtoon want to police the genre if the creator was insistent it was drama in the first place? It doesn't make any sense and sounds like a lame excuse to justify inconsistency.
File: 1599281761599.jpg (147.17 KB, 960x640, original.jpg)
I agree, that excuse makes no sense to me. I feel like the author intended it to be a romance but had a change of heart halfway through. You can't tell me the first 30 chapters or so weren't setting it up to be a romance slice-of-life with some drama sprinkled in.
Come on, look at this artwork. It screams "love triangle." But when I dropped it at 150 chapters in or so it seemed like there was no romance and just long chapters of people getting drunk and yelling at each other.
Nah it does make sense, romance is the most popular genre on webtoon. Categorizing it as romance baits (more) people into reading it and by extension, spending money on it.
Not saying the creator couldn't be lying, but I don't doubt that webtoon forces/encourages original-creators to do certain things that are in webtoon's best interest and not neccersarily the creator's.
File: 1599309637848.jpg (108.87 KB, 1080x734, Quim.jpg)
Well the author is like that irl so I'm not surprised
Romance and drama aren't mutually exclusive. Even if Webtoon forced Quimchee to make it romance, it still would have retained dramatic elements if she really intended it to be drama. Instead, it was a romantic comedy with minor drama elements for the first few chapters, then did a heel turn into pure drama, and she has the audacity to blame readers for "misinterpreting" the comic.
She writes Shin-ae the way she sees herself – everyone else is to blame for her problems.

Any recommendations for a webtoon with art style and/or romantic dynamic similar to Unlucky Mansion? Things I like about it are
>adult characters, not set in high school
>assertive and frank female protagonist, not shy or a virgin beta
>enemies to lovers
>slow burn romance
>seemingly mean love interest who is actually a blushing sweetie
>side characters are not annoying and have unique dynamics with each other
I'd love to read season 3 of Unlucky Mansion but currently the artist took it all off every platform and only published it to the french webtoon site for some reason.

This author seems to have 2 romance webtoons with same-facey cute women with ugly, big-nosed men. (Webtoons are "In Security" and "Youve Gotta Be Kitten Me") Admittedly, ive only read a few chapters, but the "hot wife ugly husband" trope always triggered me a little. All of their instagram work seems to have the same theme.
Also one of the comics is about a guy who adopts a cat woman off the street and she wears a collar but they fall in cutesy uwu love with kind of oof BDSM themes, but uh… we'll get into that another day.
They're not even drawn in the same art style, ffs. I was shocked to find out that the artist is a woman, given that she draws a ton of cheesecake with her female characters while the males look like a happy merchant ran into a glass door. She's got a husband (who she calls "Mr. Husband, cringe) so she's not doing it because she's a lesbian. Maybe she's just one of those basic artists who can only draw instagram pretty girls. Or she's a pickme who pairs up hot women with ugly soys so male readers don't feel threatened.
Just once I'd like to see an ugly chick with a hot guy. I feel like that could make for a funny story.
I find it hard to read even weekly updated comics tbh. I much prefer to binge a completed series.
Currently reading>To Love Your Enemy>Nice to Meet You>Devil #4>Cheese in the Trap (chipping away at it with 2 chapters a day through the daily pass)
Wanna finish Unlucky Mansion but it's only on the French webtoon for some reason. Hope it gets an official English translation.

Imagine only being able to draw one (1) male face and you choose "long hexagonal horse face with thicc nose"
On the artist's instagram she says she likes drawing "hunky dudes and cute gals" so I guess this is her ideal man.

Anons what are your thoughts on Krueger And Faust? It's a CANVAS Webtoon with 160k subs and a few million views despite only having 12 episodes, but so far nothing about it stands out. If anything, it pisses me off. The plot is "normal girl gets thrown into a wacky world of supernatural creatures and a hot guy is head over heels for her" and the art style feels so wrong in that the faces are realistic yet everything else is amateur.

Has anyone read this (Age Matters)? I read a few chapters a while ago but it always appears on the banner at the top of the app.
It's a love story with a "tsundere" type male, except while tsunderes are supposed to have a cute side, he seemed to be straight up asshole the entire 30 chapters or so I read. Not attractive in the slightest.
Also, same face syndrome. The lead couple literally has the same face. This is one of my least favorite art tropes (looking at you, Subzero.)

I keep up with it even tho the story is kinda basic most of the time.There's supposed to be more reveals and stuff happening this season.
I binged it a while ago so I don't remember how Daniel acted all the time but he finally confessed lol
I hate the same face syndrome too.And the art at times is borderline derpy

I spent the whole day yesterday reading Cursed Princess Club, the opinions in this thread about it are polarized but I love it so much, the jokes are a bit childish and everything turns out well for the main character which I understand why everyone might not like but I love it, when I read a story, I just want everyone to be happy in the end.>>89429
I tried to read this but it was so boring and I couldn't get over the fact that it's literally Jotaro and Princess Bloom

"Wait Where the Shooting Star Has Fallen" english scanlation has been updated on Mangadex! I really love the art style, hope the artist can start working on it again if she's recovered from her injury already.

I'm fucking excited that The Man That Cleans Makeup is finally picked up for official translations in English. Here's to hoping the comments to won't devolve into ship wars and constant comparisons to True Beauty.>>108571
I'm glad I'm not the only person who feels this way, I feel bad since Quimchee takes the breaks due to medical reasons (or at least that was the excuse for the first hiatus) but with a team of hired artists doing most of the heavy lifting for her (she hired someone to do the line art and color while she gave them rough first draft sketches to make the final draft) she doesn't really have an excuse to fall so behind.
>>108637>Like it’s been so long and I don’t feel like anything interesting has happened
This, literally nothing happens. I dropped it.
Does anyone else here read Hardcore Levelling Warrior and find it difficult to keep track of everything that's going on? It's a shame because I really liked the first season but now it's just endless battling and a lot of confusion for me.

samefag, also I want to recommend The Wolfman of Wulvershire for anyone who wants to read a webtoon with adult characters instead of highschoolers for a change. It's refreshing. It's in the genre mystery (and secondarily romance imo)
synopsis>Lady Carina would rather be single forever than become any man’s baby-factory. So when she shows up at the Duke of Wulvershire's annual Spring Fling wine and dine, it’s a shock to everyone — but not more shocking than the ensuing series of murders! Will Carina make it out alive, and, more importantly, will she find herself a hunky husband?

The art is so cute!!!
I agree too
A lot of artists act like the job is sO difFicuLt but they’re drawing and writing not working in the coal mines
But yea you’d get attacked if you said that outright, webtoon fans are vicious to defend their favs
Mentioned how lazy Quim seemed once in a group of Webcomic creators and got flamed because my own upload schedule is erratic lmfao
Why do people think featured Webtoon creators are these small nobody artists who are doing this for passion and can't be held accountable? If you're getting paid to put out comics, you should fucking put out comics. It's different from hobbyists like me who don't have much time on their hands due to work but still want to make a comic. This is their fucking job
. They get paid salaries for this and they still wanna play the "it's so hard guys!!!1" card
Same with Twitterfags who scream oppression once you so much as say something negative about Rachel Smythe because apparently she's a small indie creator and can't be held to professional standards. Yeah, and her work is on fucking Times Square. Think that warrants a little criticism at least
ntayrt but it's from this post in her IG https://www.instagram.com/p/B1g10OZHNWN/?igshid=1sh0mn3q72fg9
to me Quimchee is just lazy, I don't say she doesn't have medical issues but I believe she just became disenchanted with the comic, either because she doesn't know what to do with the story or because the fandom annoyed her to no end, probably both
File: 1600867032293.jpg (694.34 KB, 1080x1934, Wolfsbane.jpg)
I know Wolfsbane's got a bad rep in the thread because of the vendetta/selfposting, but I saw that it was only 26 episodes long and decided to give it a shot.
Overall, I actually enjoyed it. The art is wonky for sure, but I've always been a fan of looser styles so I don't quite mind it as much. The Tumblr faces bother me, though but not enough to detract from the overall experience. I really like how they set up scenes and compose their panels, since I've become so jaded with stiff and flat perspectives in popular Webtoons. It's very creative and interesting to see.
I can't say I'm a big fan of the characters but the lore is pretty cool. If any of you anons don't mind the bad anatomy and Tumblr style, (as well as giving vendetta/selfpost anon the attention they want), it's pretty good to read as a quick binge kind of series.
I read this a while back and holy shit it I hated every second of it. The jokes are something only a 10 year old would find funny and the characters are annoying as fuck. The main character (that girl with purple hair) is insufferable.
Tried the cat girl comic too but it was really fucking disturbing lol
Do these comicbook artists not fucking plan
their stories? You don't need an extremely detailed blueprint but you should know where you're trying to take the story, at least roughly. Course-correction or a change in conclusion do happen but to have no plan and just fizzle out? These people need writing training.

Just started reading The remarried empress. There's only a few chapters (English) chapters online so far but I like it and the art's gorgeous.
A little bit. Like other's said, there's a lot of bad writing (and inconsistent art) that I no longer tolerate unlike when I was younger. But I also feel like I've reached a point where I've read so many stories in general that at the core a lot of plots are just the same thing with slightly different circumstances and it bores me. For example how many lovetriangle stories in a high school setting have I read? Too many. There's few things that really spark my interest anymore. I do still read webtoons but very few and I'm far more picky with what I read.>>109232>most webtoons fall flat
It's funny but I used to not mind this at all if it meant I got to enjoy the webtoon for a longer time or I hardly noticed. >>109238
is right about no one caring or knowing better.
Anon what are you talking about? Persephone is an empowered feminist taking charge of her sexuality! Who cares that she's made out to be a soft uwu baby who doesn't know what sex is? She has sexual agency!
In all seriousness anon, hope you enjoy the shitshow. Everything about Lore Olympus is dumpster fire and it's only entertaining in the sense that you're just desperately trying to comprehend how a professional featured comic can be so painfully below amateur

Always a permutation of this stupid thot face i stg.
Did the artist have assistants from the get go? The art style is incredibly inconsistent and I'm on like chapter 6. I like some of the shape design but things morph way too much in every other panel. Also a lot of the characters look the same, no wonder she color-coded them like in Hercules.

Killstagram was discussed here before and its legit the worst webtoon ive read so far, I read it ironically but still. Its so bad that even the readers openly acknowledge it in the comments, theres literally no breaks for the character and if there is it always alludes that something bad is gonna happen, its just exhausting to read and at this point its just torture porn

So I was browsing a meme app not too long ago and I always get ads for this terrible-looking "beast" webcomic, usually the ads are pretty basic but today I got this ad and I had myself a hardy kek.
On another note the majority of webtoons I've been coming across lately (this one included) come across as poorly-written sad excuses for the creator to self insert herself into a world of sexy anime guys, and I can't distinguish any romance webtoons from the others. And the female leads that aren't blatant self inserts are the exact same breed of cookie cutter "uwu, h-hello I'm a shy, sweet little girl trapped in a strange world and I need a savior but I'm also a perfect badass pretty fighter gal! Did I mention every guy loves me?" It's part of the reason I hate the romance genre, every female lead is the same, including fucking Lore Olympus.

mfw Devil Number 4 publishes another chapter about boring yaoi side characters for the 3rd week in a row
AM I A JOKE TO YOU???
The main couple finally start getting close and we're blueballed for side characters one of whom is literally already DEAD
for weeks. Make it make sense…
Are they paid monthly? Feels like we getting scammed by Quim lmfao>>111040
Never got into Devil No. 4 because I couldn't fucking stand the main girl. Hanna or something? She's got such an empty husk of a personality that I deadass can't even remember her name or what she looks like
Me neither tbh but I don't know any of their names Especially Korean names completely miss me
. I don't like her at all but I like the devil guy and the angel lady. Other devil guy that's clearly gonna end up with the angel lady is also cool.

Ares was cool until he became a joke kinda wish he had more plot relevance and wore the uniform more often
And hades is an absolute simp and it just bothers me alot i also got annoyed in a recent chap when eros said that persephone didnt have any friends and the classmates didnt like her and he just gave this scowl. You cant force ppl to like you doesnt help that its also partly his fault why they dont like her
god the art degraded so bad since the first few chapters. paycheck must be fat.
Does it bother anyone else that some of the american webtoons like Edith, I Love Yoo, and Midnight Poppy Land have such vague settings that are a fictional mix of America and korea/japan. The authors are clearly weebs
influenced by east asian media but they make no attempt at being accurate in any way so i feel like there's a slight disconnect to the characters. It's also cringey.
Yeah, Ares' first appearance as an ominous but cool character has all but evaporated, he's just a weird sex joke now. I was hoping they were going to go someplace with him detecting Persephone's rage towards Apollo
but nope, Hera gets to solve that one instead.
As for Hades, I do find it appealing that he's a brooding dork who worries about Persephone's boundaries and tries to give her support in a way that is respectful but attentive. He's a very safe character in my mind, unlike others in his social standing (Christian Grey comes to mind). He could be depicted as a rapey psycho who just wants to control Persephone the wide-eyed secretary but that isn't what he's about at all. I still hate their age gap tbh but I try to ignore it.
Ares being a distant manipulator and low-key a war general was SUCH a good concept and I hate that Smythe threw it all out the window for the sake of him being one of the many god's horny over Persephone and an overused pegging joke. In fact, the entirety of Lore Olympus is needlessly, tastelesly crass and sexual. Did Smythe really need to dedicate a whole ass
chapter showing how Persephone gets turned on? Do we really
need all these shots of Persephone's tits and ass? Do we really need to hear which sex positions Hades imagines Persephone in? When LO first dropped on Naver, the Korean crowd was flaming it alive for it's unnecessary sexual-ness, and the rating was considerably low for a while, but I guess LWT did damage control and now it's back to normal.
Wow i didnt know what bothered me until you finally said it anon, i think this is a common thing with alot of comics tbh>>111195
Fr tho i thought they were gonna utilize ares for that, im still hoping that it could still happen.
oooh i didnt know the korean crowds reaction to LO was like that, can you pls elaborate anon?
Well said anon. The way the artist portrays Persephone is so voyeuristic which is hilarious considering she is the protagonist whose sexual agency we are meant to root for. Except, the way she is framed is constantly from the point of view of absolute leering. It could be meta commentary of course but the execution does not seem self-aware to me so I think it's just that the creator simply doesn't know how to draw a woman outside of pinup poses. Coomer media rots the brain, even for women.
Tbh the subject matter is not an easy one to keep non-degen. The Greek Pantheon is littered with sexual deviancy so depicting it without any of that would seem strange, so I actually think the debauchery is probably the one thing that makes sense. I think premise-wise there are things there that should work together in theory
>the art style is hypersexualized>gods are horny and weird>Persephone is a fertility goddess raised chaste by a helicopter parent who probably watches Girl Defined>P tries to live that life but is incredibly horny>P moves to Olympus to liberate herself>She meets horny gods and learns about different ways to live one's life>There is a gloomy dude who's into her but is too timid to make a move
I think where it falls apart is making this a monogamous romance story. Persephone and Hades' trajectories are somewhat conflicting. Hades starts out with a FWB (and implied flings besides the one long term fuckbuddy) wants to be monogamous/exclusive. Persephone on the other hand is in an even stricter form of sexual boundary, she is committed to never even having sex in the first place. P's arc doesn't make sense to me as "from virgin to wife" because it's not a satisfying ending for a forced chastity beginning. She is going to go from being a virgin to marrying her first bf at 19. How depressing. I think the satisfying ending would actually have Persephone grow out of Hades and leave him behind to be her own person. Obviously it's not where the story is going though.
Idk, is the theme "be a good wife"??
GOD WHY??? this chicks vocal delivery is just—-
Great now im reminded that LO is gonna get an animated tv show

Ok theres this thing that i wanna point out but correct me if im wrong. Even tho rachel said that she took out the incest stuff in lore olympus, i think she forgot to clean up a bit. You see, zeus is hades brother, hera is married to zeus and demeter is heras sister
HADES IS PERSEPHONE'S FUCKING UNCLE
God, its funny too, i think rachel realized this error so she changed it so she and demeter are no longer sisters, it was even blatantly stated at some points in the comic! I swear to god, picture above said "I miss my sisters" her sister obviously being demeter and hestia but in her wiki it says "unknown sisters" now haha. If anyone noticed this or remembers the sisters thing pls let me know, i could be wrong but i REALLY dont think so. LO just got 100 times more creepier
Oh and ares is technically her cousin

Looks like you're right
Taking out the incest is such a stupid move imo. If you're gonna do Greek gods then you have to just roll with the gross sex shit. I don't see the point in using these characters if you don't want them to act like themselves.
Make up your own squeaky clean mythology if you need it to be PC.
I don't understand why she changed everything
except for the large age gap. Then again Hades is based off of Mads Mikkelsen who she's horny for, so I'm not really that surprised.

Ok but if it wasnt an issue then why did rachel changed heras sisters then?
Ares however is her blood relative
There is no blood relation between Hades and Persephone as per that family tree. Are you high? Then again, they wouldn't be related even if Hera and Demeter were sisters.>>111555
Not sure why she decided to change it. Maybe she decided to make the women not related at all for some future fling she's planning between some of them. Also Ares is not her blood relative because as per that family tree anon posted upthread, Hera and Demeter are no longer siblings thus Ares and Perse aren't cousins. Hell, it looks like Demeter didn't even birth Persephone in Lore Olympus, she "Created" her. Nobody
is related to Persephone apparently.
Not sure if you know but Hades, Hera, Zeus, Demeter, etc. all those oldfags were siblings in the original myths so it's all turboincest. They're Cronus and Rhea's children. Hence, Hades is originally Persephone's uncle.

It makes sense I guess from a marketing perspective since they want to rake in the views, but considering the content of Lore Olympus, it just feels like pandering.
LO stans and Rachel excuse the crassness and debauchery of the Webtoon by saying it's meant for mature audiences and teens aren't supposed to read it, but is it really the case if it's continuously being marketed to teens?
The fact that Lore Olympus got nominated for an Eisner makes my blood boil. Thank God it didn't win or I'd have lost all hope in humanity.

Because I read LO this Hades and Persephone Ficlets was recommended to me. It starts with their version of the story going into short stories. It's it's amazing how basic knowledge of the mythos and common sense goes a long way. This author who I believe is Vietnamese changes it up that Hera and sisters are adopted and Persephone was a created from clay child. There's still the 'uncle aspect' but it's played as a gag not to be taken seriously. This is their little AU short that of course the LO cult attacked them multiple times for daring to even breathe on the subject matter.
File: 1602988263463.jpg (1022.19 KB, 1258x2156, m7Dwll1.jpg)
The usual how dare anyone even think of doing anything similar to Rachael. This is their note after being attacked. You'd think Webtoons would do something about their star's fandom going at creators on their platform. As this is not the first as creator of Punderworld had to also declare peace. Yet I never see Miss self insert say shit about her shitty fans being shitty.
the LO fags are seriously the worst fandom on webtoon. On Instagram they attacked a rape survivor because she said she hated how the comic portrayed rape, and they constantly talk over actual Greek people and pagans because Rachel read the Illiad once and therefore knows better than everyone else
Not to mention anytime you bring up any criticism they resort to Netflix Cuties logic ie "HOW DARE YOU ATTACK A WOMAN TALKING ABOUT SEXUALITY??!!". I'm surprised how much Twitfags love LO and defend it to death considering the culture there
