Korean Manhwa

The last manga post I made was back in March, so it’s about time I made another. I scanned through the numerous series I was reading to decide what to present.

This was when I noticed I was following more than a few manhwa, which led me to pick my current top 3 out of those.

  1. Noblesse – Vampires in the modern world. It focuses more on their supernatural powers/abilities instead of their stereotypical need for blood. The main character is a vampire from centuries ago who has just woken up. It’s amusing seeing how he reacts to things he is unfamiliar with, such as a banana.
  2. Tower of God – A fairly new series about a young man that enters a tower where any wish may be granted if you complete all the trials. This is your classic heroic journey story, which makes for a good read.
  3. Sfumare – Vampires once again, except this one is more of a high school drama. Thus, way less epic than Noblesse. The setting is in a world where vampires coexist with humans. The main character is a girl who loves money, which of course results in comedy.

These series are done in a webcomic format, which makes for some quick and easy reading.

    I wasn’t really a manga reader until I started running out of anime to watch. Hmm, romantic comedies are always fun. ^^

    Noblesse sounds interesting. I can only imagine all the “new” things in this age that he’ll be surprised at.

    Yup, Noblesse is one of the few series that I check daily for new updates. The chapters are really short though. :/

    I’ve been reading manga and manhwa for some time now… usually in between my anime downloads… i don’t speak or read Japanese or Korean… so i have to wait for them to be translated….. but i ABSOLUTELY LOVE Noblesse and Sfumare…. but it takes awhile for new chapters to be translated… do you know any other manhwa/ manga with similar styles/ story lines???

    This is basically all the manhwa I follow, so I don’t know any other series that use this web comic style.
