Another article about webtoons? Yes, sir! We’ve talked about well-known series in the previous articles, such as “My Deepest Secret” or “Unholy Blood”; from romance and slice of life to horror and action, we’ve seen some interesting titles. New series are waiting for us to read them so let’s (re)discover the vast variety of webtoons with five new and interesting titles!
My Gently Raised Beast
Do you enjoy reading fairy-tale-like stories? Are you into cute art styles and cheesy romance with fantasy elements, knights, princesses and castles? Then “My Gently Raised Beast” is a brand-new webtoon series that should make you interested. Blondina is basically a real-life Cinderella. She has a rough childhood, full of violence and poverty until she learns that she is a princess. Her half-siblings and father are treating her coldly so she has to be really careful. That until a strange creature named Amon befriends her… There aren’t too many chapters released, but the Cinderella-like feeling and the pretty art style is luring and inviting many of us!
You should always be careful who are you making fun of because things can easily take the wrong turn. That’s how the story of the “Shotgun Boy” begins. As he is trying to escape the hell that he is experiencing, Gyuhwan finds a weapon in the woods…a shotgun, exactly what he needs for his revenge. However, as he returns to the bullies, he stumbles upon brain-eating monsters attacking the classmates who bullied Gyuhwan. The question is: will our protagonist act as a God, playing with the lives of his enemies or will he save them? It’s a promising webtoon that has a thrilling story so far. Let’s call shotgun in this hair-rising journey with our protagonist!
The Snake and the Flower
Another historical webtoon? Yep, indeed! We are talking about an ancient story of a rage-filled emperor and a “flower” named Aehwa, The Snake and the Flower. The emperor thirst for blood could be stopped only by his flower that he cherishes and adores. As he sees Aehwa’s interest in music, Harang Kang is appointed by the Emperor to be her “personal court musician”. Yet, the greedy and violent emperor does not want anyone to see his beloved flower so he gouges Harang’s eyes out and after discovering an unsettling secret about the royal couple, the musician cannot feel anything but vengeance. Things are getting more and more tangled. Is there any way of bringing justice in this scenario?
Orcs, elves and epic battles. Can we say more? Oh, yeah, let’s talk about Gul, the young orc who excels in three domains: “running, running fast and running away”. However, one unlucky journey ended up with an uncanny meeting: Gul sees the peculiar Dark Elf in flesh in bones. Now, our spunky orc has an important mission, a mission that “no one else in his village could keep pace with”. Besides the colorful and dynamic art style that draws you in, the webtoon is really promising! Would you give it a try or it is not “Gul” enough?
If AI Ruled the World
Let’s dive in the Sci-Fi section with “If AI Ruled the World”. In this webtoon everything seems perfect and way too easy. Your car is driven by an AI, helps you out in everything, cares for you when you are sick, protects you and facilitates your work. It seems way too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, it is! AI can be tricky and once it becomes a huge threat, will you be able to fight it? After all, everything comes at a price. Neon-colored panels, mysterious machines and a lively story. Everything a scientist needs, right? Just kidding, this series is way more that this and has a promising start!
