Need to rant/rave about a webtoon?

What are you reading at the moment?

No. 49303

I really like true beauty even though it's really cliche. but I read spoilers for the later chapters and I thought suho/jugyeong was going to be the end pairing but idek anymore. I get him going back to japan because of his dad's coma but not contacting her for years makes no sense. honestly I don't want to sit through Jugyeong and Seojun getting together just for Suho to return and all that other drama.

No. 49339

Is it me or is Webtoons pool of 'comedy' comics really bad? I think it's more that they're not my taste, but webtoon comedy is just 4 types. The 'daily doodles of a funny artist', the 'romance/action/sci-fi that added comedy as a sub tag for some reason', 'funny concept that just gets dragged to eternity with the only joke being 'hey funny idea", and the '1-shot updated daily comic that's crossposted onto reddit'. You don't see a, I dunno?, clever comics? Comics with good writing. Something you think could see being televised.
Any how I'm suprised "hey I'm gay" and "nerd and jock" are still going. After comic no.50 you'd think they run out of ideas, but somehow they're still going?

No. 49433

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.

I've never read a comic from their comedy section that I found enjoyable. Your post is spot on.

I agree with it's being so cliche but I read it anyways since I like the art. however I can't relate to jugyeong like most readers do, she seems so shallow and obsessed with appearance so much. like, you really don't need a layer of foundation and lipstick even for a short visit to the market.

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.

Yeah this. Iirc her initial infatuation with Suho was based only on his appearance as well.

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).

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.

No. 49760

whoever recommended hell phone thank you so much! it's so good, expecially the art. I like the clothes of the characters and the contrast between colorful art and horror genre is surprising

No. 49767

I really liked Lookism but I feel like the story has been progressing at snail's pace. It lost me at the runaway fam, that was kinda gross. (spoiler) I just wanna know what's up with the body switching stuff at this point.

No. 49769

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.

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 don't really follow/get Lookism's story anymore. There's so much going on, so many characters and fights and sometimes it takes so long for the story to get back to Daniel it's got me confused and lost.

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.

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

No. 51353

I recommend it too, the art isn't amazing but a webtoon about girls actually being friends is nice. It also manages to discuss lookism without falling into the whole "MC becomes beautiful and makes all other women suffer" revenge fantasy trash.

No. 51381

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?

I've lost interest since Jacobi joined, I don't dislike him and I think his backstory brought something interesting. But I missed so many episodes after he took Lucy to his hometown and eventually dropped it. Sometimes I want to read it again though, because I liked the art and most characters.

No. 51519

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

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.

to be fair, for the amount of free content I don't mind the bad ones. I just sub to a couple comics I really enjoy and get to read a few new chapters almost every day. Not bad for free content.

lol anon that is the perfect way to describe her character designs. It makes it hard for me to believe it's supposed to be a serious story when they look like shounen protagonists. I forgot what the setting is like but they're so colourful it's at odds with the fact they live in a dystopia (or do they? I stopped following this years ago). And why is the comic quality to low compared to her illustrations? She's one of those artists who look objectively 'good' but that comic has that vibe where it looks like the person had to have relied on a crutch to draw that well, I'm not going to accuse her of plagiarism but her lines there are so sketchy, the rendering looks half assed and there's the obvious reliance on filtered photos.

Wow, really? Hearing that she has a team doing it feels disappointing somehow. When it comes to independent artists I always assumed works under their name were mostly if not entirely done by themselves, it's different to finding the works of a big name producer.

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.

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?

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.

No. 56968

I'm saying that it's a pro point because it's not directly just retelling an old tale, it's making a new one with old characters which, as you said, are revamped to be almost unrecognizable. The point was about originality as in just taking an overused fable and rehashing it. They really can't be compared, but for some reason anon thought "they both have characters from historical tales, thus they're in the same framework".

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.

No. 58520

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.

No. 58557

ok fuck, I know this post is old, but I want to bitch a little. I kind of liked the premise when I first started reading it, but goddamn it's obnoxious how much she hammers the "fight 4 justice" and ~symbolism~ shit. Besides that, ever since she started using 3D models, her comics have been looking so goddamn uncanny and ugly, which makes me sad since I genuinely enjoyed the art before. Releases are also so goddamn slow. It makes it hard to follow the series whatsoever. Overall, I guess I'm just really disappointed with the direction everything about this has gone when I really initially liked the idea. The other anon is right. Yuumei is fucking annoying. I wonder what the series would look like if it had been done by someone more competent and who's not an ass-deep SJW who thinks edgy punk and sUpEr dEeP shit is cool.

No. 58564

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.

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.

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?

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.

It seems that Lore Olympus is back with the theme of the Apollo abuse, I was hoping that maybe, and finally, we were gonna be able to discover what kind of bad guy is apollo, I was aiming for a kinda real depiction of how an abuser can be dangerous and manipulative in a position of power (maybe take advantage of the fact that persephone CAN'T MENTION TO ANYONE that is not a virgin anymore) but that was too much for ask.

Lore Olympus has been so disappointing. I hate every single character. But Persephone is especially atrocious. She's painfully mary sue-ish. Hades is also getting on my nerves with the dog daddy shit. I honestly hate them as a couple. All of the other the characters are 'quirky' and boring as all fuck. It feels like its trying to be a comedy with the way the characters act, but I haven't laughed a single time. I'm so bored of the series. The Apollo rape plot is only finally getting addressed after 80 fucking chapters. Something that should significantly affect all aspects of the main story has almost fuckall to do with it. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the nature of TGOEM, but I thought part of it all was maintaining your virginity. Shouldn't Persephone be more worried about that aspect of it all? Two other gods (Hera and Eros iirc) have been able to pick up on the fact something happened. I've only ever seen it address her being worried whether or not she'll join it/be able to get out. I don't think I've ever seen her think about about what if she will join/she can't get out of it even though she's no longer a virgin.

No. 76379


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.

Seriously. The entire comic is shit and I have gripes with pretty every single aspect of the series, but I think the TGOEM shit is the one bothering me the most. How is it that not once since the rape has it been addressed she can't be a TGOEM member now. There's all this fucking drama centered around whether or not she'll be able to get out, but that shouldn't be the drama in the slightest since her joining literally cannot fucking happen anymore. Even 80 chapters of her stressing the fuck out over how she'll deal with the situation of not being able to belong to it would have been better than this shit that makes absolutely no sense.

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

The shipping in the fandom is absolutely atrocious. I like Jack's character, but the moment he shows the slightest bit of concern for Edith, the entire Webtoon comment section is just bashing on him and how Philip is so much hotter and all. Magnolia's character is interesting as well, but people sideline her for the sake of their precious uwu ship.

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.
i think devil no. 4 is good, art is nice and the past lives stuff is cool. i wish hana was less bland tho

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.

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

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

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 .

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.

Only weebtons I actually like a lot are SWEET HOME, GREMORY LAND and CURSED PRINCESS CLUB.

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.

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

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.

No. 80769

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.

Also I haven't seen it being mentioned yet, but I'm sure someone knows of Killing Stalking? Besides the awful following I really didn't understand what it was trying to tell. It has some well done horror scenes but a lot of it is gross in my opinion, and it was very popular at some point.

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.

I think so but the author got lost along the way and now it became a "girls can be ugly but guys cannot" cringefest.

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.

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.

Isn't it supposed to be like little Daniel is becoming more similar to perfect Daniel because perfect Daniel is who he could be all along? It doesn't make much sense though since Crystal also has another body but her unattractive body isn't morphing to be like her attractive body.

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.

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.

That comic must be satire, the art and the characters are extremely bad.

Ohh… #Killstagram.

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.

And that was one of the good looking panels…

of course, because that's an accurate representation of a korean man's reaction to knowing his beautiful gf looks like an ogre kek

this comic is pure cringe

Popular Instagram artist uploaded their Webtoon. Got hyped for it at first because she had strong character design skills but ended up ultimately disappointed by a discount Lore Olympus

I dont have high expectations for this. Her previous comic kinda sucks ass but then again it was only a few chapters and was discontinued

No. 82725

what is this comic called? the art looks cool

No. 82726

Light Years Away. Tbh the only good thing about it is the art, and even that is mediocre

No. 82748

What the fuck. It looks EXACTLY the same as Lore Olympus, what's the plot about?

No. 82754

From the artist's instagram it seems to be about planet beings acting as gods of their respective planets and they're accusing the Earth god lady chick of causing mayhem or something

remember to sage

I don't see how it looks anything like Lore Olympus? The only vague resemblance are the face shape and features?

Is anyone reading Swimming lessons for a mermaid? I'm not normally into manga but the art is so pleasant lol. The story so far isn't bad either, a bit cheesy maybe.

Is the next chapter going to be like her bf telling her she’s perfect no matter what and then he and Suho fight over her in a super dramatic scene like when two guys fight over a chick in a kdrama? I wouldn’t be surprised.

No it doesnt clean out your eyes

The most recent episode of TB was particularly heavy on that Mary Sue/self insert garb. I didn’t mind the unrealistic ness when I first starting reading the comic because it’s just teen fiction and not supposed to be that serious, but the author is being careless now. Like it’s not even fun to read anymore. Good stories require real conflicts, not just cliffhangers that get resolved early in the next episode.
