>that stupid comment about the story of Demeter and Persephone originally being about mother-daughter love and empowering women>in ancient Greece>female empowerment
Lmfao these retards really can't make up their minds when it comes to a narrative. That isn't what the focus is. Through a tragic event, Persephone is transformed from the innocent maiden into the Queen of the Underworld. The process of this transformation demands the resolution of the tragedy. The crime against Persephone (the abduction) must be faced, and her role as a victim
abandoned. Persephone must reclaim her power and her responsibility, She must give up Her naivety in order to become the Queen of the Underworld. She has to take responsibility for eating the pomegranate seeds. It is not good enough for Persephone to remain innocent and ignorant of her errors or to expect to be rescued repeatedly by others. If she holds onto this attitude, she remains the Maiden and continues to be the victim
again and again. The journey to the Underworld involves diving to the depths of the psyche to confront the emotional scars of abuse and trauma. In doing so she reclaims her power and her courage, wisdom and maturity.
Also, several different people recorded this story and depending on which version you read you'll have a completely different picture. In one version, she willingly leaves with Hades because the Underworld represents adventure and the unknown and pretending that Demeter wasn't a controlling ass parent is insane. In another version, she isn't a barely legal woman, but a middle-aged woman who has the mannerisms of a naive girl and is dressed like one because (once again) in Demeter's quest to keep her daughter 'safe' she completely infantilizes her.
Also, in regards to the was she actually raped as in physically penetrated or not:
"Rape in Antiquity: Sexual Violence in the Greek and Roman Worlds is a generally worthwhile collection of essays about a non-existent topic. This statement is not meant to be facetious. Nor do I intend to suggest that acts that we would call “rape” did not occur in antiquity. Quite the opposite: ancient Greek and Roman literature presents us with many stories about rape and attempted rape of both women and men. When I say that rape did not exist in antiquity, what I mean is that there is no single word in either ancient Greek or Latin with the same semantic field as the modern English word “rape” (viol in French or Vergewaltigung in German). The Greeks, for instance, used words like u(/brij and a)timi/a and the Romans words like stuprum and vis to refer to acts that we call rape, but each of these words possessed a much wider semantic field than our word “rape.” And many Greek authors may describe what we would call rape as an act of violence, yet do not always call it an act of u(/brij or a)timi/a (e.g. Apollo’s rape of Creusa in Euripides’ Ion, the rape of a wife at Aristophanes Lys. 223-28 or the rapes of young women in Menander’s plays). True, ancient authors give us some information (not as much as we would like) about acts of rape and ancient attitudes toward sexual violence. But we should not assume they had a concept of rape similar to ours."
I'm sorry for the sperg. I'm just tired of this shit.

Haven't seen this recommended but I love Yuna & Kawachan! Really cute art style, cohesive color palette and a story that seems like it's going somewhere. I don't think the pacing is too bad either. Likeable characters as well.
People getting mad that Hades had slave labor, who are all dead by the way, being problematic
. lmao fuck off. The video was starting well until they also got misinformation about Hades too.
Welcome to the majority of not only the LO fanbase, but also its detractors. Not that there isn't valid
criticism amongst the latter, but a lot of them stay saying stupid shit like Hades having slave labor, Hera being "racist" against nymphs like Minthe and Thetis, etc. Its just too much, these people are fucking defective.

Yeah, comics like Edith would look so much better without the tool. Legit the only reason the tool exists is to draw out the speech bubbles faster>>124678
I deadass thought the artist finished like a few episodes before. Then I was shocked that this was supposed to be the first episode, the pacing is really off and you can tell she rushed it
Today's LO episode is a little better quality than usual. I enjoyed Hephaestus's characterization. I'm praying with every bone in my body that Rachel doesn't make Hephaestus another member of cInNaMoN rOll Persephone's harem and male worshippers. I'm surprised she added him at all tbh. I still remember Rachel adamantly refusing to include Hephaestus on LO, claiming that he's a "creepy incel" when asked why.
Some people speculate that Hephaestus's plot relevance is being ghost-written, and if so then thank fucking god. Rachel's already ruined so many characters with so much potential. Ares is literally just a BDSM joke that wants a piece of Persephone's ass now.>>124678
The amateurity of this fits in perfectly with Webtoon's main demographic of quirky tweens. I'm not surprised that it's doing relatively well at only one chapter up.

This is NOT a drill!! Unlucky Mansion's later chapters are finally being uploaded in English https://bato.to/series/57617/unlucky-mansionKeep it on the DL because the user that's doing it is using the raws from an arabic fan translation and adding the English translations of a fan that got asked to stop uploading them previously, aka they're appropriating someone else's translations
I'm upset at where the story is headed atm but there are some more chapters to go before the manhwa ends so maybe it'll be okay. My heart hurts!!
Ayrt here and I totally feel that. I feel like if she had kept this series shorter it would've done better. Its been like three or two years since this comic began, but hasn't it only been like three weeks in the comic itself?
At least we have Punderworld.

Putting my tinfoil hat here, but I personally believe Webtoon is trying to end many Western originals and replace them with translated Korean webtoons. Like >>127640
said, series that used to be big (like Let's Play, I Love Yoo and some fad ones like Lalin's Curse) are now on hiatus and I believe they'll only come back for them to have some sloppy conclusion since they're only moneysinks for Webtoon. Villainess webtoons are all the rage now and with many other sites competing I bet Webtoon wants also their share of the cake.
Sadly Lore Olympus and Edith are still popular so I doubt they get cancelled, even if they get lazier by the minute lol

I'm convinced this webtoon is a joke. I'm convinced this is a bet. I'm convinced the author made a bet that they could make a webtoon with mediocre art similar to the popular trends (True Beauty, Lookism) put all the romance tropes imaginable and see how well it would go. I cannot believe otherwise
It has e v e r y trope
We start with
-The fl has a secret she needs to hide, he finds out
-Enemies to lovers
-Ml is actually not mean like he was at first, but he's pUrE who blushes every 5 seconds and has no other personality other than being a dog/child
-They get locked in a room by themselves
-He's rich, fake Relationship/Contract relationship to piss off his father, but they fall in love in the end

How come you guys don't read/discuss Purple Hyacinth?
It's a great toon so far. Give it a chance!
I might be out of the loop by why do you (I assume both replies are from the same anon, the typing style is very similar) keep posting this person's videos as if they are the ultimate arguments regarding Greek mythology? Surely she's not the only one covering this subject, is she?>>127667
Honestly I am tired of the generic Korean webtoon style as well as the generic love stories (whether Korean or Western). I remember seeing this ad on youtube about this webtoon called "The Remarried Empress" (see video) and I was kinda digging the style because it reminded me of those Hamilton animatics from 2016 (kinda stupid I know but it felt nostalgic). I went to look it up on the app and I was really disappointed by how it actually looks like, it's just your run off the mill romance manhwa
I wish there was a surge in new comics with interesting styles, there were a bunch of promising candidates in last year's competition but they got lost in the sea of corny BL comics
Anon, you're not obligated to put out chapter consistently. Go at your own pace.
It took me about six to eight hours every day when I was posting my story on Canvas (it was called Discover back then iirc), and I was going for weekly/bi-weekly updates with fully rendered backgrounds and shit. No surprise, I got burnt out really fucking quick. High effort artwork isn't going to mean anything if the author can't even manage to update past six chapters.
My advice is to cut as many corners as you can. Use assets and 3D backgrounds. Recycle certain panels and elements. Originals creators have whole teams of assistants and ghostwriters for them, but you're doing this all on your own. Lower your expectations for yourself.
Good luck anon, I hope you manage to get your comic out there.

saw "i accidentally kidnapped a mobster's son" in the up & coming section and can't really say anything about the plot or whatever bc i haven't even read it yet but. why put this as your very first panel lmao it's so lazy
this is awful
canvas promotes a lot of shitty ones, and the same ones over and over
Sage for semi-old but I just wanted to put to words why
this is so awful, for any aspiring creators reading this thread and looking for mistakes not to make.
The first chapter is basically just an info-dump of random, insignificant information that doesn't have any impact on the flow of the story whatsoever. Info-dumps aren't bad on the own and it's understandable if the author is trying to flesh out the world and its characters, but the way random characters are introduced only for 1-2 panels of sceentime just makes it seem messy and overcrowded.
Secondly, the humor is random and quirky. It doesn't feel earned. It's supposed to be a serious drama with high stakes but here the characters are, making "cute" expressions and smarmy quips. If you want to use humor to make light of a dark situation that's fine, but do it in a way that makes sense in context and not have a random character pop in to bicker with the others without any prior establishment, then immediately leave afterwards and expect us to take this seriously.
Lastly, the art. It's extremely rushed and lazy-looking due to the author having to account for all the stripes and patterns on the characters' clothing. The character designs are fashionable and aesthetically pleasing but don't tell us anything about their personalities. The poses and expressions are so stiff and lifeless that the author feels the need to make their characters explicitly tell the readers exactly what's going on, pic related.
Her older version of the comic worked because it was only around 8 panels and got to the point. This new and improved version feels like meaningless fluff that's more tell than show. You can tell her only ability to write is as ａｅｓｔｈｅｔｉｃ quotes and random bouts of nostalgia, because it's all style over substance.

So we got another antagonist in LO. Anyways, it's pretty interesting to see how due to Persephone'tree and Hades refusal to remove it may cause Kronos to escape and cause mayhem. Hopefully this is same sort of flaw for Hades cause I'm really tried that LO keeps downplaying Hades and Persophone'mistakes to make them seem like the pure guys

Sameflag. But apparently I'm wrong about Hades and Persephone, of course Minthe will be the one ultimately blamed for this whole thing
Yikes, LO fans never cease to amaze me with how ruthless they are towards anyone who gets in the way of their precious cinnamon roll Persephone and Mads Mikkelsen wannabe daddy Hades.
I remember when a popular LO fan account posted that any woman who dislikes LO has raging internal misogyny, since apparently that's the only reason anyone would ever hate on a poorly written piece of self-insert DDLG fodder. It genuinely baffles me how much mental gymnastics these people go through.

anyone here know the webcomic site, tapas? it used to be taptastic until it when through a webtoons skinwalker design. anyways does anyone know why they seem to be only licensing like weird princess comics?
i wished there was someone out there to read them all and tell us if they're all the same or not lol
The specific ones in your screenshot are fairly different from one another.
First one is typical "OL with a single hobby isekais into fantasy medieval Europe and must introduce her hobby to this world", like all those stories it's slow and a bit boring.
Second one is okay so far, regression rather than isekai, protag returned to years before her murder and is trying to avoid dying again.
Third is pretty cute, it's one of those "my IRL family really sucks so I'll write a story centered around my self-insert having a cool, loving dad, true friends and cute love interests" webtoons. I like it so far but those stories usually reach hundreds of chapters with almost nothing happening, so it might get boring soon.
So overall they do have different premises, but all those isekai/regression/family wish fulfilment comics tend to be super slow and get worse as time passes. It's like they never want to end and stop making money, so they delay getting to the actual meat of the story for as long as possible. That's probably good for the platforms that license them though.
they're all isekais with small adjustments lol
not saying that's a bad thing there's a lot of gold isekai originals on tapas that doesn't get enough attention, what I am saying is that there's no variety in genre, Tapas has only licensed isekai type webtoons. i wouldn't mind if the front page wasn't saturated with these all the time. The "non-original" section is barely present and constantly pushed off by "my maid is the reincarnation of my sexy teacher's horse" or something
unrelated-the fact that you had to pay for the rest of the comic (when you might not even know if the rest will retain the same quality) kinda rubs me the wrong way.

This Webtoon. This fucking webtoon right here. I. Can't. Stand.
The art style is typical Deviantart styled Walmart shoujo.
The main character is supposed to be a stereotypical racially ambiguous brown character yet they're too stupid to even know how to color darker skin correctly. They use cooler colors instead of warmer colors to draw them, so it ends up making the skin have a greenish tint and look like vomit.
Not to mention the artist SnailLords is a degenerate POS. I've been following them for some time now (since the early 2000's).
They're a degenerate troon that tries so hard to be a nonbinary Tumblresque hipster. They are just a shit stain on Webtoon and I hate how they've managed to get popular enough to become a featured artist on Webtoon. Ugh.
I don't know that webtoon. But I remember reading Nightmare Factory and enjoying it only for constant hiatuses and the story just kinda fizzling out.
Also I haven't been on webtoon for a while and went on recently to find the whole coin system really annoying. I guess gotta get that $$$.
If anyone wants COMPLETED recommendations:
Romance: My Boo, Ghost Wife, Westwood Vibrato
Comedy: Sound of your heart, Auro From Another Planet, 10th Dimension Boys
Comfy: All That We Hope to Be, Kids are All Right
Underrated AF: Hellper, God of Bath, About Death
I'm still salty Hellper season 2 wasn't officially translated.
Snaillords seems to be making a new series, i wonder if it is going be a featured one. I mean Freaking romance was popular so it would make sense, but the creator seems very unprofessional since they've publicly said that they hated making FR and the ending seemed very rushed. Also if was kinda same for the other one like >>134320

Has anyone read Flawless? I had to power through the first couple chapters cause of the feeling of the FL being a sorta mary sue. But I think the best part was the later chapters which is rare for most webtoons/manga. But it was really good how the webtoon touched on how FL felt about ML being "flawless" aka male mary sue and being perfect. I think it was really refreshing for a webtoon to be kinda meta. Really loved how it showed FL's insecurities. She is still sorta a mary sue, but I think I could overlook it. Of course there are still stuff in the webtoon that I didn't quite like and some plotholes, but overall I really enjoyed it.

This isn't an LO exclusive problem but something about how dialogue is written in a lot of popular Webtoons just rubs me the wrong way for some reason. It's like they write the dialogue for kids with bare minimum reading comprehension, then cram in swear words or slang to appeal to "adults" as well. It reminds me of an edgy teenager watching Adult Swim and making offensive jokes to prove that they've all grown up and become mature.
I love yoo is so ugly but maybe this is a sign I should give it a chance. I hope mongie doesn’t come back. >>135717
I’m pretty sure most of webtoon readers are in fact stupid children (based on the comments) so it makes sense they keep the reading comprehension skills required at a bare minimum.
The dialog and characters make me cringe so much I stopped reading it.
Honestly what is it with the rape stuff? I reread the scene and Apollo was a douchebag pressuring her into it BUT she said 'okay' two times and never even told him to stop or anything, just kinda felt bad on the inside. Worse is she even said 'okay' to him taking pictures. I honestly don't feel like it was this horrible horrible rape the characters keep making it feel like, am I just brain dead?

How the fuck are their lives in tatters? They went shopping and are still living in luxury. Literally nothing about their lives minus Persephone's barely-touched-upon college degree has been affected in any way. People still love and worship them. How are we supposed to genuinely believe that Minthe caused Persephone and Hades to hit rock bottom and ruined their lives completely?
She literally turns a sentient being into an object in this recent chapter but they guy who had sex with a woman who said "fine" to sex is the real monster
Yeah and also Minthe has giant tits even though she was explicitly shown to be small chested before. She even compared herself to Persephone because 'small tits bad', of course. But we can't have any female characters that aren't just walking tits and ass so now she has the exact same body as every other female character in this webtoon.
This comic is so bad at playing woke.

This stupid ass post now excuses rachels bad art inconsistencies and the comments keep on saying minthe is wearing a push up bra or got plastic surgery. We get it. You hate her now shut up and move on
I don't like LO that much either but being pressured into having sex and giving up resisting doesn't mean it was consensual
Consent consists of a question and an answer. In this case there was no question, just Apollo entering Persephone's room at night without notice and forcing himself upon her.
Other than that yeah I agree that the characters are badly written and the dialogue feels pretty clunky. There's a bunch of storylines that lead nowhere and characters that seem interesting but ultimately do nothing>>136886
I really hoped Minthe's character would go somewhere but she's so one-dimensional it's painful. She's just mean. Why is she mean? Just because.
Rachel tried in some chapters to flesh her out a bit and she seemed remorseful for how things went with Hades but she turns into a full-fledged bitch when Thetys and Thanatos visit Helios.

So i’ve been thinking of making a webtoon about an average girl torn between the popular people vs ugly losers of her school, so she schedules her time between them. (pls tell me if this is a dumb idea). I was wondering if my art is good enough for a webtoon yet and how I can write it well?
Thank you anon! You’re so sweet>>137712
There will be
The art is okay, maybe a bit too stylized for my taste, but are you gonna draw it digitally? Because just that photo is way too dark, it needs at least a bit of contrast editing.
The concept of the story I really like!

lmao she even drew Minthe and Persephone parodying that photo where Sophia Loren is side-eyeing Jayne Mansfield's boobs, picrel.
I'm probably only hate-reading LO at this point, but it keeps cracking me up. In the latest chapters Hades' nose keeps going back and forth between pinocchio-tier and conveniently attractive small one. Yeah, it looks different depending on angles but come the fuck on.
Minthe recently looks fucking awkward, imagine constantly having to write a character's actions in asterisks.
The ''funny'' faces look off-putting when they are always in the forefront of a large panel.
It's basically a story in a world where everyone dresses like an insta hoe and speaks like a twitter fag, about uwu big titty nlog who dresses like a baby prostitute, her much older boss sugar daddy is bullied by a skinny meanie no tit bitch, look at how big boobs Persephone has tho that means she's better, Persephone is a cinnamon roll but she's also powerful and angry with red eyes!! But only because she has trauma uwu. Her blue Pinocchio sugar daddy buys her useless luxury items and they are in love!
End. What a mess.

Does anyone know what webtoon this is from (and if there's English translation for it)?
Fantastic summary anon.
I never understood why more and more female characters carry on the whole revenge fantasy trope- sometimes I love it, like in the movie Carrie, but god, sometimes it’s so badly written. LO is a good example of this because Perse never seemed to earn her revenge because she never made something for herself because it was always given

I have no input on the story but if webtoon originals with fairly mediocre art like Ghost Wife or Cursed Princess Club can exist then I think you could make your art work too. Assuming you won't upload a literal sketch like pic of course.

I find a lot of western webtoons to be trash. Instead, I read a lot from the Naver Webtoon app. There's a higher percentage of better webtoons in terms of art and storyline, but obviously there exist some trash ones as well. Here are some that I really enjoyed (only a few have translations, will link if there is one)
> Yes, My Boss!
I read this in Korean then English first since I have no means of buying cookies. It's about a manga artist who takes up a full-time position as a designer at an engineering firm (iirc) and her boss is a scary, quiet, introverted dude who keeps to himself. The caveat is that he loves manga, especially the ones she draws and they meet once again after he applies to be a manga assistant where their roles become flipped. I really enjoyed it: https://tapas.io/series/yesmyboss
> Homework of the Mind
The main character moves into a new neighbourhood which she chose as she wanted a quiet respite from the busy noise of life and life. What she doesn't realize is that the neighbourhood is a hub for (friendly) vampires – and that her crush from high school lives in the same area as a vampire. Life gets more interesting (and complicated) as she befriends these vampires. I didn't get to finish this because the Korean app forces you to one chapter only and the English sites haven't finished translating them. https://manhuascan.com/manga-homework-of-the-mind.html
> End of a Relationship
A presequel to `Hell is other people`, a horror webtoon that turned into a drama (which I enjoyed enough). If you read HIOP, you get to see the beginning of the murderous crew and how a relationship gets ruined. Lots of blood, gore, etc.
> The Nine of Us (my translation that I prefer)/The Year We Turned 29 (unofficial translation)
A cute slice-of-life romance following the lives of three girl friends in their late 20's and the relationships/men they meet. This webtoon makes me want a friendship like them, enjoying the ups and downs together and moving past the hardships. I enjoy the art so much even though it's not super beautiful and intricate, but it is quite colourful and cute. https://mangaowl.net/single/54783/the-year-we-turned-29
> End of the Century, Apple Academy (my rough translation)
It's soonkki's second webtoon about a girl who's short, boisterous, not studious, naive, but well-meaning and a boy who's tall, scary, smart, loner, but sensitive. They met as children since their parents were friends, though he always rejected her and opted to hang out alone. Now they're sixteen and go to the same school together, get made fun of their names (their names together refer to an old Korean comedy duo have) and it's their awkward story about their friendship (or lack of). https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=178173
> Ugly Peoples
What would happen if God came to you and would grant you three wishes? The main character is an ugly man who has been treated poorly because of his poor looks, affecting all aspects of his personality and life. Meeting God, he wreaks havoc on all the world but bliss lasts only for so long.
> Some Guy
Two university students become neighbours in their apartment and have hilariously awkward interactions until they slowly get used to each other then to close friends. It starts off with dry Korean humour then moves onto something more serious, dealing with failed relationships and pending love. Unfortunately the series hasn't been touched since 2016 or 2017 and won't get updated ever.
I was reading The Pale Horse and seriously enjoying it, but I can't find an english translation past chapter 239. I guess that is because Tappytoon removed it? Fucking hell it was at the BIGGEST plot twist where it ended. I'm pretty sure there is more that happens after, are english readers just fucked now?
(spoilers) Of course lemon did something like that, so somewhere he replaced pierre with himself? honestly I think rose is better off with him though I don't buy this thing where she's suddenly a good person I mean… she ruined many lives including pierre's. but I can see she is going to be with him. Lemon is an ass but so is she so they deserve each other
samefag but I was mainly hoping to see what happens to jack
because I loved the bizarre and sad development, guess I never will.

I recently started reading The Way to Protect the Female Lead’s Older Brother. It's basically isekai where the FL gets reborn into a a family of edgelord villains from an adult themed book. ML is pretty milquetoast so far, so most fun comes from reading about her hilariously edgy family (I'm getting strong Borgia vibes with all the poison and incest subtext). The updates are slow, tho.>>138811
I used to read it around 2013, then it went on hiatus and I was reminded of it just recently when it popped out on my pinterest, so I went to check it. It has gorgeous art that got even better with time, but the story is pretty complicated and gets ridiculously dark (rape and so on).

Fluffy goodness, fite me.
Actually, there's quite a few variations and interpretations of the Kidnapping of Persephone/Homeric hynm of Demeter, so The romantic interpretation of the taking of Persephone can be valid
as a adaptation.
I would kill for an adaptation that flips the script and Casts Demeter in a good light as a chance of pace.
I think Hadestown has one of the more interesting depictions of the two and Punderworld is at least better then LO in pretty much every aspect so if you want a romantic tale I would much rather read that one
I wanna see, but I am afraid that they will search for leaks. But then again there are people constantly posting the fastpass episodes on yt.
What do you guys think about the newest episode?
I hate that they mixed up psychiatrist and psychologist in this episode.
I also hate how they again and again shit on the caring mother Demeter from the myth and make her a villain and a bitch.
I saw those leaks on a nsfw website. Shes literally a very submissive bottom which is ironic how people keep saying shes a top>>145922
Not entirely. In the latest(?) She gives out a reason why she doesnt approve and its because shes afraid that her daughter might get heart broken and shes definitely isnt as bitchy and abusive
as LO demeter. Shes shown in a more understandable light rather than straight up demonizing her
I think it's okay to link this as long as the images aren't shared directly on lc? https://e-hentai.org/g/1749148/6857992f42/
God her style is so ugly. I'm not even against more women drawing porn, better than scrotes for sure, but it looks so disjointed and some of the expressions are just creepy

Has anyone else read Young Blood? It was a slice-of-life romance about young adults but it’s been rewritten/rebooted to a more…. fantasy genre romance? (about a witch who moves to the human realm, so still more human-focused)
Feel kinda disappointed with the art change though. I get it’s a lot of work drawing, coloring, and writing a webtoon, but the new art just feels… sloppy? I always felt background art was more of the artist‘s strong suit rather than character art, but now both are feeling pretty weak now. One thing I will say is that the characters at least have more of a personality, which was a something the Young Blood version had trouble with.
Yeah art style has gotten way worse and nothing has changed except that magical realm shit and that they gave the generic pink haired mary sue mc the worst "quirky" personality possible. The generic character dynamics (broody emo guy falls in love with quirky pink haired girl) are still the same. Thanks, I hate it. Even Lore Olympus has a better story than this and it has almost the same characters and the mc body also gets shown off and sexualized in almost every panel even tho she isn't doing anything sexual. Thanks, I hate it.
I wish webtoon creators would make comics with better plot lines with different and more interesting characters.

Nah I get your complaint. Kind of puts me off how she draws every other female character, even the monster girls, basically the same way as you described. Same sexy faces and same sexy outfits aside from color scheme. Even the guys have the same generic handsome face.
I’m not even against attractive sameface casts, I’ve seen plenty that had more variety and personality than this. It just feels like this one is meant to appeal solely to people who follow sexy Insta influencers.

If Persephone from LO is the walmart version of the real deal then Pepper must be the dollar tree version of LO Persephone (+ Ariana Grande) since her color scheme and "personality" are literally cheap ass knock-offs.
The author even made a Hades & Persephone sketch in her discontinued comic of Pepper & Chace

not a webtoon exactly, but anyone else reading beware of the villainess? honestly it's one of the few of the "genre" that i like since MC has an actual personality besides being pretty and smart and loved by everyone. she has a temper and is sometimes (rightfully) shitty to people. also i'm so fucking thankful that it doesn't fall into the trope of the male love interest being abusive and hiding it behind being "romantic" or whatever. yuck also love how bisexual yuri and melissa are
File: 1624154317028.png (1.65 MB, 736x1096, 01106104829.png)
"The way to protect the female lead's older brother" is probably my favorite villainess manga. Beautiful art, has managed to remain interesting, and I actually love how the female lead has developed. Without giving you any spoilers, this mc transmigrates into a novel in a pretty shitty situation and you can actually feel the danger.
Also try "I want to be you, just for a day". Medea is a badass and she hasn't stopped being intimidating after 77 chapters.
"I tamed a tyrant and ran away" has a female protagonist that while not exactly a villain, has a very specific goal that can make her be quite ruthless.
And finally "Untouchable lady". Not a villainess story but a "revenge" one. Very satisfying seeing the female mc giving hell to the people that wronged her.
And those are the only ones I can think of. Hopefully you will enjoy some of it.

How did Smythe manage to stretch out Hades and Persephone for so long and then just fucking speedrun it? The writing is so shoddy

I reallllllly loved the femdom vibes in the first 15 or so chapters. I'm on chapter 27 now, so I'm interested to see if it'll pick up again. Also, the tea party scene where Dion's mother brings her doll is unintentionally hilarious.>>150170

I just caught up with I Became the Hero's Mom and I hated the last twist.
I just wanted to read a cutesy story about a woman raising a child and falling for the hot dad, I didn't signed up for the protagonist to turn into the chosen one nor for a stupid love cuadrangle ala The Host.
Did not watch the whole video bc its long and reeks of selfposting kek.
But Sam is absolutely pathetic girlie is middle twenties and still acts like a middle schooler being uwu I'm such a wittle clmusy shy baby uwu is so boring and so 2010's
I feel it was hard telegraphed as meta way in the middle. Like…the whole looking into a train metaphor. I get it. I enjoyed it but I figured it would end this way. I give it points for being genuinely spooky I parts but Melfina's Therapy was better.
I just want a nice horror manga that scratches the Junji Ito itch.
That ending felt like the ass pull of the year.

I do feel that Margot and Rami weren't really punished enough for their actions. Margot straight up kills a kid because she thirsted over Bruno too hard and Rami bashes Jax's brains in. The park was supposed to punish Rami for that but we never see it so it doesn't matter.

Reminds me of My Dragon Girlfriend where one out of the two main lesbian couples is also a troon.

I'd say it's based that the author made him so ugly and unlikeable but I doubt it's intentional kek
The story started totally revolving around him instead of the main couple for a long time. Couldn't continue, dropped it.

Nonas, please help me finding this webtoon (I hope it was a webtoon…) again. The protagonist (星子, it's originally Chinese iirc and I have no idea how you transcript Chinese names correctly) hates men because her father left her mother for a younger woman. A guy (夜天) transfers to her school after he got thrown out from his previous one due to bad behaviour and shows up at her part-time work place. She thinks he's stalking her, but he's actually a regular. She apologized the next day, and I think they start to become friends or something??

I love the artstyle and the concept, it's been consistently good so far. The foreshadowing has been excruciating though. Even if there's going to be a darker twist I hope the comic doesn't lose its charm and wholesomeness.
brass & sass is cute. characters act like actual teenagers, could be a pro or con
romance 101 has decent art, although the plot can feel slow at times. act like you love me has nice-looking art as well
your smile is a trap is cute also, and the fl isn't like the typical webtoon love interest in the least

I usually don’t like to read webcomics unless they have a backlog of at least a couple hundred pages. I feel like they’re less likely to be abandoned at that point (though the risk of being abandoned is still disappointingly high) and you can get a feel for if it’s updated often enough to be worth following after initially reading it. Also by that point the story has usually started getting somewhere and you have gotten to know the characters. Picrel- a nicely drawn 25 page webcomic I followed against my better judgement that the author has evaporated from ever since.
This gets a little fuzzier for Webtoons(TM) because they’ll often have several pages worth of content on one “chapter.”
The worst feeling though is reading a few hundred pages of webcomic and at the end having no desire to follow it, either because the story or characters are badly written. That’s more unusual though.
I like Makeup Remover, fun characters, interesting story and pretty art.
Swimming Lessons for a Mermaid is a super cute romance webtoon, pure fluff with the healthiest relationship I've seen in a webtoon.
Odd Girl Out and Your Smile is a Trap for a slice of life feel-good romance.
Remarried Empress is a nice court romance drama. Similar to it is Men of The Harem, bit average but still fun to read as it is more of a comedy. Your Throne has some MF romance but is more of a serious dramatic story, beautiful art though.
I read Your Smile is a Trap, really lighthearted & nice!
I have to give Brass & Sass a shot next.>>156376
I'm adding your recs to my next reads!
Thanks a lot anons, I've already read some of your recs, my favourite ongoing romances webtoons are Romance 101, Makeup Remover, Remarried Empress & See you in my 19th life. I read a lot of other stuff too because I'm content deprived but sometimes I'm past my cringe limit lmao, thanks again.

Wow, there is so much garbage in this thread. Let me talk about something that is actually good. Annarasumanara, was the first manhwa and web toon I ever read and is still the best one I've ever read. It's style is so bold and inovative on the use of digital art and the webtoon long strip format. The story is also great, especially if you like magical realism. Go read it
Acutally, My heart is beating, ties of compassion and this were the first ones I read and really set the bar high, most webtoons I have read since then feel so mediocre and bland (Unlucky Mansion was fun while it lasted tho)
I do too though for the moid shit that moids predominately like , ready player one for example is also absolute dog shit ( but i suppose ranting about it would be a little off topic-), I don't mind the fandom, it just some of the popularity still baffles me to this day. At least it's not a tenth as creepy as twilight or 50 shades and the likes; it's the only perk >>157986
I actually read the whole story on a whim; I thought it was a little on the nose but I'm such a sucker for magical realism and circus things and took me back to reading the night circus by Erin Morgenstern

Tinfoil but a few weeks ago I noticed that LO had been briefly knocked out of the #1 slot but I didn’t screenshot :/ I’m sure they bumped it back to the number one slot since it’s getting a Netflix adaptation and I’m sure that their top webcomics are just as organic as the top Netflix series… I wonder what the real metrics are for the American Webtoons

I've been reading this little canvas webtoon called apogee lately, the art's a little wonky at first and the pacing is a little slow for my tastes, but the aesthetic and the characters are cool, It's a neat time travel- groundhogs day type thing
A lot of canvas comics are better than originals

>>159748>greek deities thats still being worshipped today
Are you joking? Yeah technically Hellenism is still (barely) alive but it's practiced by a very
small subset of the population and is nowhere near as active and organized as even the random papier-mache religion of neo-paganism. Hellenism was straight up banned in Greece itself and wasn't officially recognized again until 2017. There are maybe 2,000 hardcore followers in the entirety of Greece (population ~10.7 mil). Does it also upset you when people make artistic media using Nordic, Egyptian, Eastern European, Indian, African and Middle Eastern folklore? There will always be some psychotic fringe worshippers who find it disrespectful, but even people who do believe in those pantheons are typically sane enough not to get their panties in a bunch when a comic artist thinks they have a cool "aesthetic." The vast majority of folklore and mythology is literally fanfiction that's been appropriated and passed between various cultures over centuries in the first place.

Reading Men of the Harem. Recommended if you want a fanservicey webtoon where a dominating woman becomes emperor and creates a harem for herself. Hehehe
File: 1631860776430.png (153.59 KB, 724x640, 1630529257479.png)
I get so annoyed whenever I think about this webcomic. I swear I have an inner neckbeard, and this brings it out like nothing else. It has cute designs, an interesting, mysterious story, and lovely animated videos/music, but the creator is a retarded sperg.
>constantly nukes everything (and even before nuking, updates had always been sporadic)
>takes down fan-made archives of the old content
>nuked a Discord server full of fans, OC, etc for no apparent reason
>bragged about drawing autistic lolicon hentai of his character(s) on Twitter
>has created and deleted multiple reboots all with the exact same settings/characters, and is now making some shitty 4 panel comic (again with the same characters, but little to no words or story)
He doesn't deserve those characters, or even an iota of the story he's trying to tell. In some ways, he's right that he can't express it properly. He's incapable, and always will be.
Pick your poison: Japanese manga with moe uwu eyes/pastel hair/everyone in high school, or Korean manhwa with men with shaven jaws and rosy, plump lips.
Tbh I'm not in love with the artstyle, but I just felt thirsty for a reverse harem lmao.
File: 1631967950698.png (797.41 KB, 864x903, kleinkun.png)
Thanks for the rec nonnie
. There seems to be absolutely no sex in this story (as of chapter 34) but plenty of politics.
Which guy is your favourite? I actually like Klein, so funny.
Simping for the red haired knight dude, I know unrequited love is an unpopular trope but I love/hate seeing him suffer from afar as his loved one makes herself a harem LMAO.
Also kind of loving the ridiculous cat fights between the men.
That being said, when will someone create a reverse harem with actual romance/kissing/sex with the men? WHEN?
At least I hope we're overcoming the decades of "reverse harems" where the naive heroines don't even realize they have 5 men in love with them. Bruv.
You're welcome, it's the first comic I've come across where the author just lets her female sexual id completely loose and she gives absolutely no fucks (while fucking a lot) kek.
I really hope there will be actual romance in Men of the Harem though. The most likely candidate would be Sounnought. Merchant dude is the most suspicious guy ever and mercenary dude seems to be a werewolf or undead
I think Sounnought or Hyacinth is going to be end game. Pretty to look at though, and I do enjoy a badass empress who isn't afraid to get her hands dirty.
The Princess's Jewels is similar, though way more horny in tone to Men of The Harem.
thank you for recommending the Princess's Jewels,
I've really enjoyed Men of the Harem for it's story but I agree that it begins to become frustrating with the romance. I could live with the teasing though
Princess's Jewels on the other hand is wow. She said I'm going to be hot and keep a harem of men.
She even has a man castrated for being a sex pest, removes him from power, makes his daughter head of the household and steals his son for her "jewelry box"

Damn this comic is trash but I can't stop reading.

if you want female power fantasy, have you tried "your throne"? it isn't without its faults, but i liked the main female lead better than the one in princess' jewels. she isn't afraid to kill a bitch either. i liked that the author doesn't go the common route of pitting two females against each other and have one of them just be a one-dimensional villain that gets easily taken down. the author focuses on the character growth of both female leads and they actually have each other's backs. they are my guilty ship.

please do! i forgot to add that really it's lacking in romance though, so if you're looking for that you might be disappointed. there is a male lead, but at this point main female lead actually has more moments with the second female lead lol. i havent read men of the harem, but i'll give it a try too.
I feel this picture.
I don't get why she doesn't want to do anything sexual with the guys. Harems are wasted on asexuals.

Thoughts about the new Archie comics comic on webtoon?
They changed her from the weird and goofy, tall bucktooth weird girl to a self-inserty "smol uwu soft girl who was actually pretty all along trope" in order to make her relatable to the preteens reading it, which I found kinda disappointing
I also don't like that they made the gang unnecessarily mean to her while electing to ignore her whole "aggressively cornering Jughead despite him saying no to her all the time" schtick
But besides her height, I can forgive a lot of that in order to modernize everything… but I still cannot get over that VERONICA LODGE needed to get Ethel to get her free movie tickets when she could use daddy's credit card to buy out the whole place if she wanted to. Just felt like an extremely dumb ooc plot device to go boohoo for Ethel
Still gonna read it, but it does feel like its own standalone thing, even though I know its an official collab with AC and WT

Manta Comics has been aggressively advertising something called Under the Oak Tree at me for days. I caved, I'm hooked, but they tried to hid it behind a paywall.
… but I found the whole thing for free elsewhere online. I dont think Manta Comics was prepared for people (me) who have bad romance manga as a guilty pleasure.
I've only started it but the basic plot is that there is a princess who has been deemed low value because she has a stutter. She is forced to marry a knight, and he disappears for 3 years after their wedding night, and it turns out the knight has saved an entire continent by slaying a dragon. Now he has returned to his wife and he is determined to overcome the difficulties of being a PTSD riddled dragon slayer in love with a woman traumatized from years of abuse
I eat this kind of crap up and pretend I'm enjoying it ironically. I'm the type of person who knows that Twilight is cringe but still loves it anyway, if you're like me you're going to fucking love this. Hoping I can get a few people to start sperging over this so I dont have to sperg alone
I'll link it: https://undertheoaktree.online/
I've been waiting for updates too, but I wonder if the webtoon had been dropped now. Remarried Empress is also being postponed until November, and I wonder if it's because the story is turning dark by now (as per the novels) and the artist is reworking her style to reflect that more or sth.
I started reading From a Knight to a Lady, but it's going slow so far.

Yeah weirdly enough the ED shit felt strangely artificial to me even if I didn't think it was too bad and all that.
To be fair I'm not huge on slice of life YA adult shit but gave heartstoppers a chance out of curiosity but didn't really became blown away or very attached to anyone
Yeah, the ED shit does feel a bit rushed, i think it would’ve been more interesting if they’ve shown the guy actually suffering through the recovery process at the hospital or something like that.
But then again, the focus is more about the two dudes in love and not mento illness.
I mean, yeah, I know right, I don’t know, it feels like the author could’ve done something
else but I’m not sure of what it could have been, like, to make the story more rounded.
Something it leaves you feeling like something is lacking.

The only reason this webtoon went viral is because the author is an ulzzang YouTuber. It is every romance author’s worst nightmare. It is rushed, the POV switches back and forth too often, the characters have no personality…etc if you thought true beauty was bad this is 10x worse. And surprise! It’s based in Korea and it revolves around aspiring kpop idols. A koreaboos dream.
I don't know, the premise seems just you know just offensive
Engaging in men's yellow fever is just something that will always be cringe

I also kind of relate to her, having someone from another country into you and that guy wanting to basically marry you when you don’t even know if you truly like him.
This felt like a cautionary tale of sorts for some reason. I’ve received this same text as well, how the hell do you even react? It’s so weird. The lesson I’ve learnt is that even trying to keep a casual relationship is impossible because you’re expected to baby every man, and that American guys are trash because fuck, that representation of the basic American dude felt too realistic.

Just a couple of chapters in. I’m kinda against casual sex, so I’m biased, but it feels more palatable in you view Nora as being low-key bpd/dumb and that all the men in this series aren’t worth anything more than their bodies. The Amsterdam guy was kinda pretentious and degenerate imho and the manbun guy was also pretentious. The American guy is straight up Satan. The only decent-ish guy was the ginger tbh

The main character joins a gardening club attempting to be president and ends up trying to solve a murder. The mystery elements dont hit hard but it’s a fun read.>pyramid game
the new girl ends up joining a sociopathic rich kid class where they recreate a caste system. It’s really good and absolutely insane. >unholy blood
i genuinely dont even know where to begin. The writing sucks and sometimes the proportions get uncomfortable to look at but it is the ultimate female power fantasy. The main character is strongest vampire in the world and is trying to kill the rest of vampires. If you want trashy power fantasy i suppose this is for you. I liked it though.>your throne
The women are powerful and insane, the men are weaker than them. It’s good. The art recently has been lacking but the writing is enough to keep you engaged.
Here are the stories that are somewhat girlboss>meow rangers
this is every cat persons fantasy i think. Cats are an alien species and are at a proxy war with each other using humans to fight. I don’t even know why i’m listing this> god, please make me a demon
A devil gets to be reborn as a child and turns to god to make herself into a demon again. The art is pretty and her friend group is really fun. Though I’m scared that the only important male is gonna end up in a relationship with the demon.>>177004
It’s annoying how the only interesting plot (Kronos coming back because of Persephone and Hades’s literal mistakes) is only being hinted at and overridden by the Authors constant fifty shades of grey fantasy. The only good and interesting character was minthe but she’s a fucking plant.

anyone reading a chinese comic called scream queen? i already love her.
nitpick but i hate those randomly thrown in non-english expressions like the blondes "bore da, bunty" or the lets players and his older sis' conversations, or that obnoxious friend of his. i get it's there as an easy way to show "look at them, they're bi/trilingual, aren't they kewl uwu" without having to put any effort into showing anything deeper about those cultures, but the way it's shown in the webtoon is not at all how i (or my friends fwiw) ever experienced multilingualism. stumbling over a word here and there because sometimes the entire concept of it doesn't exist in another language, sure, putting on a bad accent and over-dramaticize it for the fun of it, why not, but this entire 'randomly throw foreign vocabulary into your speech and expect everyone to understand it until somebody points not everyone is ethnicity
' seems just like someones bad take on growing up bilingual and their only reference material is bad mid-day sitcoms from the early 2000s. at least it's gotten better in recent chapters bc there weren't even any translations in earlier chapters iirc.
