/kmg/ - korean manhwa general

Post by TwinPomfs »

Here are some titles to check out. Got any other recommendations friendlings?

Girls of the Wild's
Tower of God
Noblesse
The Breaker: New Waves
The Gamer
The God of Highschool
Kubera
Rebirth

I remember randomly going through manga titles in my local library close to a decade ago. Ended up borrowing the Tokyopop release of Rebirth Volume 1. Thought it was brilliant. Medieval fantasy setting with vampires, sorcerers and even vatican cardinals. During high school lunch breaks, I would always sneak away from friends to go to the computer lab to indulge in a few new chapters. Fast forward a few years...

Tokyopop is kill. No! They published 22 English volumes. I think the remaining 4 untranslated volumes were published in German though. Apparently Tokyopop is back but I don't think they have English publishing rights to the IP anymore. I don't think there is enough demand for a revival either if I'm being completely honest with myself. The scanlation scene is dead too for this title. I'm in the process of learning Hangeul. Such is life.

Were you not put off by all the disgusting nudity in Freezing? I don't mind some fanservice, or ecchi, but there are limits. This specific title by the team isn't as bad as others, but still rather ridiculous to a degree that hurts the story even more than the apparent lack of editorial input (If there was any, then that editor ought to be sacked).
I keep being put off by this specific author team (the writer seems a bit better when he isn't teamed up with this artist) as he seems to light-heartedly present very graphic rape scenes, which is fine, but then treats it with the same tone as if the criminal had just stolen a purse (a good example is the very start of their 2015 series 'Monochrome'). It's ridiculous. It doesn't serve the tone, it doesn't serve the story, and the fans it serves should just quit pretending and just pick up an actual rape fantasy comic.
