Need to rant/rave about a webtoon?

What are you reading at the moment?

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.

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?

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 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.

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'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.

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?

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."

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.

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. Like what is she drawing over? It has to come from somewhere.

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.

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?

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.

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

>>58439
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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Lore Olympus it's getting more annoying with each chapter, the mary-suism of Persephone is getting hella strong lately and the fact than the author keeps using her "innocence" and "naitivy" to prolongue every single problem in the plot is absurd, and when things starts to get too boring (more than the usual) she remembers to use the sexual abuse card again to keep some interest in their readers that take the bait over and over again.

Her other webcomic, Placebo, it's laugable talking about 3rd world problems and the issue about the massive control of media and comunication inchina at the same time. I'm from a 3rd world country where there's also almost absolute control over information, but the way that she portrays the actitude of the people that lives under that kind of regime is so shallow, like everything must be reduced to cartoon villains.

I used to really like Lore Olympus’ story even though I found it a bit cringe but the last 50 or so chapters have been such an incredible disappointment. The story has such lazy writing and poor development, to this day I still don’t get why everyone is so obsessed with Persephone. Apparently it’s only been a week in the story since the rape happened but it was written like a year ago. The story has seriously been reduced to pandering the author’s sjw shit.

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.

Pet peeve but I'm so annoyed by most female romance protagonists because the author always builds her up to be ~so special~ and unique because she shuns the stereotypically girly image of the shoujo protagonist from decades ago.

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

Spoilers




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

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.

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

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 .

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.

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.

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.

Cursed Princess Club reached the end of season 2 recently and is on hiatus until June. I like CPC, but it's still getting on my fucking nerves with how hugboxy it is. I'm sort of glad for the reality check Gwen got in the latest chapters, but it's an absolute fucking shame nothing will come of it. I hope season 3 actually goes somewhere. I'm so goddamn tired of being baited with "Is Gwen actually cursed??????" crap.

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.

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 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.

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?

wonky eye aside but can she draw any other fucking female? I had to reread this because I legit just thought it was Persephone.

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.

No. 87065

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?

Because it has good art and understanding of the mythos while putting their own flair on it. LO is a trashy 50 shades fanfic with pastel coloring so it appeals to the lowest common denominator of readers. None of it has any connection to greek mythos besides a "I read tumblr posts about it!"

Well Apollo's kinda rapey, remember the Daphne story ? But then again, Greek gods are pretty terrible, and that's their thing, they are intense and know no boundary. In that regard LO is super disappointing : gods seem like sensible people and the drama is always pretty mild, so it's super boring compared to actual mythology. The story would be a lot better if gods were as cruel as they canonically are, and showcasing the relationship between humans and gods could really help that (think of the Athena/Arachne story for example, or how the Trojan war started because of Aphrodite's ego) - and it would give the author the opportunity to mention other myths.

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."

Does anyone feel like I Love Yoo has really gone downhill?

I could have sworn it was released under the "Romance" genre, but now it's under "Drama" as if the author recently realized we're 100 chapters in with no romance whatsoever.

It's clearly poised as a love triangle, but Shin-Ae has no chemistry with either suitor, and actually has more chemistry with the 5th wheel (whatever the blond german dude's name is.) It feels like every week is filler crap with someone being angry and no advancement in the plot.

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.

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.

Sometimes being an "old" (anyone above high school aged) person on the internet sucks. This is the only place I've seen where people were free to criticize webtoons, considering most of the app is dominated by 10-14 year olds who will blindly worship whatever half-baked content is put out every single week.

It feels like webtoon authors can do whatever they want, because my one old person piece of constructive criticism will be drowned out by 10,000 weekly comments of "omg I SHIP it I can't even I—" and "ashjkfdk reading this during AP English, hope my teacher doesn't catch me! Like if you agree!"

I just checked our Lore Olympus. Don't mind the art as much as I hate the writing. It might have been a deliberate choice on Rachel's part, but I highly doubt it.

Twilight and 50 Shades had really bad writing as well and also managed to target a similar kind of audience with an amalgamation of emotion and horniness. Seems these kinds of stories keep getting rehashed every few years or so, they are extremely lucrative.

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.

It surprises me how many of Webtoon's romance authors are middle aged women who are married and sometimes have children. I thought the type of people who write YA romances where a boring, average girl trips onto some high level dick was written by single women in their twenties, not moms or ladies about to hit menopause.

Would recommend for people who want a pretty wholesome slice-of-life/romance about a career woman who matures and finds herself. I swear it's not as long as it seems, you can probably get through like 100 chapters in an hour.

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.

No. 92158

>>92148
YES! I agree 100%. The female protagonists are all so bland, boring and egotistical, while the male interests are this weird one-dimensional caricature of what a 14 year think the perfect man should be and look like.

No. 92165

>>92158
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.

Has anyone been keeping up with Webtoon Greenlight? The ones I'm most interested in right now are When Jasy Whistles and Madame Outlaw.

And at the end of the day, tbh, I've accepted that Webtoon is more of a platform aimed toward young teens, and most of the content is going to be somewhat simplistic and repetitive. I just use Webtoon so I have something to look at for 15 minutes in bed before I fall asleep. I would love authors to push the envelope more often but I suppose that's not very profitable on an app aimed toward 13 year olds looking for a quick serotonin fix.

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.

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.)

I actually think porn is damaging for both men and women (and you can find plenty that cater to both btw), so not sure what you're getting at.

Webtoons is problematic because it rehashes the Twilight/50 Shades of Gray formula to death. The fact that those "romance" stories are some of the best selling books of all time is troubling.

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.

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.

I've seen a bit of criticism for Let's Play on here but I actually find it to be one of the better popular romance Webtoons right now.

Obviously it's not perfect, but I like how it's less cliche than I expected - I thought Marshall and Sam would be the OTP, but there's barely been any romance between them so far. I like how there's several ships between several characters, not just Sam x everyone. It's not that plot-heavy but I find the drama to be more believable than Lore Olympus, True Beauty, or the other top romance webtoons. I think the art style is pleasant enough and not obnoxiously anime-esque.

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)

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.

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.

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

I'm just going to say it… I really like Lore Olympus's art, maybe it's because I'm an uneducated dingbat about art, but I like the bright colors and how stylized it is. The plot is unnecessarily draggy but eh, I've come to expect that from webtoons, where authors are presumably paid per chapter. I'm probably going to keep reading it for the next 300 chapters or however long it goes on ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Maybe I'm a fool, but I'm too far in and I'm going to keep going.

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


SPOILER!

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.

Wish fulfillment but not really (the comic side-eyes its own protagonist a bit but you can still imagine being rich and popular like her) and an interesting high stakes mystery.

really? I can get why LO is popular. I can get why TB is popular. But Killstagram? The art is seriously, seriously ugly and wonky (LO for all it's criticism here doesn't compare to it). The story reads like a bad parody. The protagonist is unlikeable. Literally the only thing there is to like about it is the killer's design that's somewhat interesting. I dropped it after a few chapters because it was that bad, and that is saying something considering I keep up with LO and TB.

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.

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.

Sage for old and ot but as a long time fan of this artist, it genuinely pisses me off that she keeps introducing new webtoons and characters only to delete them without warning after a few thousand of us have already subscribed. I thought Light Years Away would be different, since she made a DTIYS with one of the characters, but nope. That got nuked too because she didn't know what the plot was. At this point, it feels like she just wants to create something that people will make fanart of and doesn't have anything worthwhile to tell. Not to be salty or anything though because I like her art and designs a lot but the least she could've done was put up a public explanation for deleting her comics instead of letting us scroll through the comments to find out.

Unordinary is so bad in terms of pacing. It's just drawn out, and all the characters are extreme arseholes. We see two episodes of John walking before something ACTUALLY happens. Uru-chan needs to keep up. More problems: John just lashes out at everybody (and the fans still worship him), Sera a bland block of cheese, Arselo just is an arse, and everyone is clueless to the nth degree

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?

I feel like the reason midnight in poppy land feels uncanny is because the main females face is always off center a bit, plus almost every background is a photo just put through a filter to look like it was drawn. The art style is the main reason I couldn’t get into it because it always felt off.

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 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).

No. 96999

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.

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 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

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.

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.

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.

Imo they're a great opportunity for small creators to get out there, but Webtoon Canvas is way too saturated with Canvas Webtoons nowadays, with artists creating Webtoons that aren't actually Webtoons and are just some old art compilations, or a bunch of scribbles they didn't want to post on socials.

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.

What's "problematic" 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.

I initially had some respect for the author on how she was handling the sexual assault plotline but now it's like "ooh will anyone find out?? what will happen?!?!" and multiple cliffhangers with no real conclusion they just exist to keep you reading (or to fast pass) which I think is pretty fucking gross to use it like that

No. 104819

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.

Sage for sperg.

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.

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.

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 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".

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.

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.

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.

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 binged it a few months ago and I loved it at first but the slow pacing and constant breaks do get frustrating, i can't imagine for someone who started reading it from the start.

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.

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?

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

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.

Yea maybe it is disenchantment, after that first hiatus I got the impression she doesn’t really care about the story or fans.

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

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.

I will say Ares looks really cool. His entrance scene made him look quite unhinged, he embodies wrath really well. I also love the way Hecate looks.

Hera was a surprise hit with me as I did not expect to like her but ended up really enjoying her chapters. Hades is endearing for the most part but the age gap is too slimy for me to completely root for him. I liked him most with Hera as a pairing.

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.

No. 111183

>>111176
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.

No. 111195

>>111176
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.

I'm ayrt. According to a blog I follow, the Korean version of Lore Olympus is very badly translated. Not in terms of it's grammar but the type of ideas Smythe wants to express doesn't gel well once you switch languages. Many K-netizens allegedly criticised the poor storytelling and overly sexual nature of the comic. It's not that they were against the sexual nature in itself, just that it was absolutely unnecessary ("Why are there so many shots of Persephone changing clothes/in lingerie? Why do they talk about her tits and ass so much when it's not even relevant to the story? Why do the male god's keep talking about how much they want to fuck her?"). The rating was around 9.26 I think, which was lower than all the other comics on the site. But because LWT couldn't stand seeing their "global hit" crash and burn, some strings were pulled (either the American fans rating it or LWT itself) and now it's at 9.78. It's hilarious because K-netizens are obviously not interested in LO. I had to scroll through so many pages of featured comics before finding LO, which is nowhere near the top like on Line.

I Love Yoo especially bothers me because Yeong-Gi is a Korean name, but Kousuke and Hirahara are Japanese names. Yeong-Gi ain't even Korean. He's Irish if I'm not mistaken. It's such an amalgamation of East Asian aesthetics with American everything elses that I just can't get into it. (That and Quimchee's shitty random humor. Istg I can't even watch interviews with her because of the time she grabbed the mic just to burp into it. The humor in the comic is equally shit.)

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"??

Another way I could concede to the PersephonexHades endgame is if she would just date some other people before ending up with him at the end. But no, so far her only non-Hades sexual experience is getting raped by Apollo and being groomed by Ares.

Rachel admitted that one of the reasons she posted LO on Webtoon instead of searching for a traditional publisher is because "print companies hate feminist stories about women exploring their sexuality".

LO isn't even about Persephone exploring her sexuality, at least up until now. She has done almost no exploring. It's more about Minthe's jealousy than it is about Perse's sexual journey, that's how little that shit has been explored.

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

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.

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.

The story isn't quite mature enough theme-wise to be marketed to adults imo. It's only "not for teens" in that the comic is very horny. If I were a marketer I wouldn't try to sell it to anyone over 20 either, it's just a juvenile story.

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.

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

I feel like the same people who worship LO probably screech about Disney's version being inaccurate. But funnily even with their changes to the tale the Ficlets author is the most true to the main story. They address Persephone's absence in the real world causing winter to spread through earth and have the pomegranate but as Hades giving it as a compromise after both were in love rather than tricking her. It's a bit messy with passing I'll admit but this is due to them having their comics published in their home country and contract wise having to only share certain amounts on webtoons. Which is more than I can say for Miss has severe daddy issues being shoved down everyone's throat by the platform. I still can't get over the fact she states Hades stopped maturing at 50 100s of years ago and Persephone just turned 20 this season. Like there's dating older guys and then there's LO.

Tho, I really can't stand Okjae at all, I actually was a bit invested in her relationship with Areum at first bc I thought he was a cute himbo and she would mellow down a bit but wow I'm on chapter 62 already and she just is a heartless bitch, huh? It's funny that she was so hurt by that other guy but is doing so much worse with Areum.

It should have stayed as the story of some underdog kind of guy trying to stop being a fatass. Hell, the idea of the retard fatass having a spare hot body he can use when he passes out could have been okay, specially because of the girl who is also fat, it would have been interesting to see how they developed a personality of their own and how they either accepted themselves/changed themselves/ or admitted their new reality.
But no! I guess people just love to watch some random weirdos constantly talking about shit and hitting each other while doing retarded faces.
