Webtoons I’m Caught Up On | #MangaMonday

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. So, technically this isn’t manga, but we’re counting it.

Also, I’m not technically caught up on all of these. But they are ones that I’m only like one or two behind on. So about a week/week and a half.

Let’s get into this.

This one is currently on hiatus, but it is returning May 26th!

“With his rainbow-colored hair and love of all things fashion, Arcus is anything BUT your average teenager. He’s an upbeat independent thinker, proud fashionista, and like the rest of us, is just looking for a few friends to call his own. Acception may be Arcus’ story – but it’s all OUR stories too – and it is for anyone who’s ever struggled to fit in, find love, or thought that High School was pretty much the worst thing ever invented.”

I’m completely caught up on this one, but it hasn’t updated since May 1st. Before that was Apr 6th. So It’s one that takes a while to update so we don’t make a lot of progress each episode.

“That man suddenly changed to a little boy right in front of me, and only I can change him back”

This one I’m caught up on as well. Last update was May 11th. Before that was April 20th. So it may be a bit before an update. While this one follows a story, it’s not a very intricate story so it’s easy to pop in and out of. And it’s adorable.

“Underwater shenanigans, in a small corner of the great big sea.”

I’m caught up on this one completely as well!!

“A story about Lee Seong Mi, a typical girl with big sweet dreams of becoming a great baker.With nothing but her pain from losing her mother at an early age,she discovers that baking is the key to her future. A future that will cross path with Nam Young Jin, a boy with a passion to bake, an aspiring businessman and the son of a popular baker in town.”

I’m adding in this separator because I started writing this last night and ended up stopping so I could go to bed. It’s now the day this is supposed to go up and I have sense caught up on all these webtoons. So I’m just going to continue sharing them.

I actually wish this one would update more often. It’s pretty consistent, I feel, but I just can’t wait for each next chapter. The artwork is spot on and the story is intriguing.

“After suffering a head injury, Alice Krueger gains the ability to see supernatural creatures. She finds an unlikely friend in Faust, the monster who had been living in her coat closet. As their bond grows stronger, Alice’s new abilities put her on the radar of a shady secret organization, and Faust finds himself haunted by a mysterious and terrifying demon with a connection to his troubled past.”

This is one that I don’t know if I want to continue reading it. It’s not bad, but it’s also not the most interesting for me. I have a feeling its going to take a turn I don’t want it to. I want it to follow the seeming path it is now and not twist around.

“Due to a scandal in the past, Eun-Young has sworn to stay away from showbiz life for good. Now living a quiet and low-profile life as a college student and part-time hotel housekeeper, it all turned upside-down after a fateful encounter with three famed celebrities . As the doors or friendship opened, perhaps there is also a chance for love? A journey to self-discovery and an exciting emotional roller coaster ride awaits~”

This one is definitely one of my favorites. I can’t get enough of this story and I know that I’m going to be sad when it ends or goes on break. I love the story and the deeper topics it touches on. One of my favorite things is how the author of this webtoon portrays different feelings in it that overpower the characters. It’s done so well and in a way that anyone who has felt that way understands.

“She’s young, single and about to achieve her dream of creating incredible videogames. But then life throws her a one-two punch: a popular streamer gives her first game a scathing review. Even worse she finds out that same troublesome critic is now her new neighbor! A funny, sexy and all-too-real story about gaming, memes and social anxiety. Come for the plot, stay for the doggo.”

So, the whole stalker theme in webtoons is huge and I blame this one. This was the first one that I read and I feel like the one that handles it the best. It shows the darkness that could be inside someone who seems like they wouldn’t have any. The most innocent looking person could be the scariest.

TW: Violence, Abuse (physical and emotional)

“Having a handsome, kind and caring boyfriend like Elios means the world to Emma. Even a look at him makes her heart flutters. But little does she know about a secret lies deep in their relationship. What is the said secret?”

This is another one that I’m debating. I don’t really care for the storyline, but the main character is the definition of a strong and stubborn woman. She doesn’t seem to take crap from anyone and there’s a deeper reason for that. I’m curious and that’s what keeps me reading.

TW: Sexual Assault, Violence

“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?”

Talk about a grey area character! The main female in this is an assassin, but she’s got a reason for doing it, more than the synopsis says. I don’t know if I can stop myself from appreciating her and wanting her to get past all of this.

TW: Violence (though I don’t think this is that bad of violence, I don’t remember offhand if any gore/violence is actively shown, but it’s certainly implied)

“In order to survive and save her grandmother, Kaida lived her whole life working as an assassin. Now she has a new job—to be a private bodyguard of one of the most richest business man heir! “

I love this one. It takes something really unhealthy and makes it funny. It’s one that only certain types of people would probably enjoy.

TW: Violence?

“What happens when two yandere stalkers fall in love with each other?”

I. Love. This. Webtoon. These two deserve the world and all the happiness. That’s all I’m saying.

“Jasper meets Kai, a boy who doesn’t speak. Will they find a way to communicate the feelings they both have?”

“When his relationship went down the drain, Chiko Dyer started to develop a weird relationship with a local delivery girl.”

The only thing about this one is that I wish it updated more often! It only updates once a month, sometimes once every two months!

“Hero may be the Chosen One™ of an ancient legendary prophecy, but she wants nothing more than to just be a side character! Suddenly crossing paths with a stubborn knight, Hero’s peaceful fate-dodging days turn into the grand quest she never asked for.”

I absolutely love this one. It’s such a slow burn and people get impatient in the comments. But the author has their reasoning for things taking so long. And it’s just such a good story. Not to mention the artwork is ON POINT!

TW: Attempted Suicide, Emotional Abuse, (Maybe physical abuse, I don’t remember offhand), Self Harm

“After a bad first year at university, Michael returns to school after a taking a year off to manage his mental health. His life has mostly returned to normal but he still has a feeling of uncertainty. Afraid of getting hurt, he keeps everyone at a distance until the “ice queen” catches his attention. Through his attempt to pursue her, he realizes in order to melt her heart, he has to open up his. Slowly, the distance between them begins to close..”

Lady love!!! With a fantasy twist!

“A dnd inspired love story that takes place in a wizardry school! Jenix who got invited to this school, will experience lots of misfortune. And the girl in the white armor will save the day!”

This one breaks my heart! It follows a Kpop idol and his group. Except it shows the darker side of being an idol and I just love that this story is being shared. I think it’s one that people tend to overlook.

“The up-and-coming K-pop group Mayhem is steadily climbing the charts, but fame doesn’t come for free. Bad Boy front man of the group Wyld knows this all too well. Forced to take on a controversial persona behind his fellow members’ backs to help keep the momentum going, can Wyld keep sight of himself beneath all the lies and scandals? Or will he become his own false persona?”

Wonderfully represented bisexual woman!! I absolutely love these two characters and their banter. And watching them grow to care for each other.

“Bea is over her ex. Absolutely, completely, over her… except that she’s not. When Bea finds out that her ex is also attending her sister’s wedding, Bea does what any logical person would do and summons an incredibly hot, sarcastic demon to be her date. But demons are tricky, and now hers won’t leave her alone.”

Another that I absolutely adore. I’m so invested in this story right now. I just want to read the whole thing right now! Ugh. I need more.

TW: Violence

After making a grisly discovery in the countryside, a small town book editor’s life gets entangled with a young Mafia lord and his intimidating bodyguard…even as every step she takes draws her deeper into the dangerous underworld of the city.”

Seriously though, if you’re every in need of any sort of pick me up, read this one. I can’t get enough. They are just little shorts that will warm your heart, make you cry, and just make you feel.

“Chonky cat that warms your heart :)”

Oh my gosh. My precious babies. Ugh. I just can’t get enough. I need these guys to be okay! All of them!

“What happens when your entire life is ruled by a prophecy – your future foretold by people you’ve never met, who died long before you were born. Such is the story of two young sea creatures. One believed to be a guiding light for his people, a Beacon who will lead them to a bright, prosperous future. The other is a teenage prince for who’s destiny is to KILL the Beacon so that HIS own people might thrive. When both reject the course set for them, it leads to a raucous adventure as big and unpredictable as the ocean itself – and a romance that nobody could have predicted.”

I don’t think any webtoon reader is surprised that this one is on here. Like, reading this webtoon is pretty much the rite of passage into the webtoon world. If you haven’t read this, you need to. Especially if you’re a fan of mythology.

TW: Rape, violence

“Witness what the gods do…after dark. The friendships and the lies, the gossip and the wild parties, and of course, forbidden love. Because it turns out, the gods aren’t so different from us after all, especially when it comes to their problems. Stylish and immersive, this is one of mythology’s greatest stories — The Taking of Persephone — as it’s never been told before.”

Another stalker one, but this one takes a different turn than the last one mentioned.

TW: Violence

“‘What can I do to get closer to you?’ Today, just like yesterday, Yohan Do is watching.”

This. One. Is. So. Dang. Cute. Read. It. Now.

“The beloved Dr. Matias Guevara tends to his patients in his little neighborhood health clinic, unaware that Dr. Fernando Guevera opened his new veterinary clinic right next door! With their patients confused and their tolerance running thin, the two grown men constantly bicker and compete! Will their similar names and professions cause their rivalry to go untreated, or will they heal each others broken hearts?!”

Do I even need to put this one into words? So good.

“What would you sacrifice to save your family? How far would you go to protect your people? For Clove, the last princess of a near-extinct Dragon clan, the answer is the unthinkable: MARRY your greatest sworn enemy in an effort to bring peace to your land.”

So. Freaking. Cute. I love this one so much. It’s such a quick and cute one.

“[Silent Comic] The daily life of a lonely photographer when he meets his true lover.”

That’s it! I’m caught up on about 26 webtoons. That’s a lot! I definitely want to add more to that list, but it’s a work in progress. Thankfully they are quick and easy to read!

Let me know if you read webtoons and what your favorites are!

I’ll definitely see you all very soon! Thank you so much for joining me!
