Description
In this world, every child is born under a god. Some gods are weaker than others. Some gods are stronger than others.

Children born under weaker gods become defunct in society, and cannot attend high school. Instead, they must get jobs after middle school. High school in this world is a place that trains students to use their stronger gods. They have one thing in common: They can grant wishes if the correct price is paid.

Leerang turns back time a day, and pays dearly for it. To reverse his wish, he must attend high school and try to use the powers of his cat god once again.

Too many wrongs can't make a right

I have dropped this webtoon and picked it up so many times.. The art is blah, except the animals, I LOVE the tiger and other animals and the "backgrounds" at certain points, but the people and general art, not for me. But because the art of those animals was so up my ally, I felt this odd compulsion to complete it.

I feel like it started out well, and I liked the ending (honestly, it fit the story just fine). But damn, the middle.. No joke, from around chapter 20 to basically chapter 102 suck. Side characters are given backstories for no real reason (aka it doesn't advance the main plot, nor does it help the sub plots), and plots are never really completed which gives you this constant want for closure that is never allowed. Stories arcs has a natural arc (duh!) and I don't feel any of those arcs in this webtoon. It's like you are constantly on the rise and never get to go down (aka closure) which leaves this bitter feeling. It's hard to explain, but the webtoon just never feels fun or good to read. I've read some extremely depressing manga, but even those are interesting to read (which makes them "fun"), but this one... It's lacking in so many areas.

The unbelievable amount of social injustice and oppression is extreme. It's forced and it's constant and it's shoved down your throat as you read. And it's not believable. I've read other mangas where there is oppression and social injustice and the want for revenge and it's handed beautifully and believably, but in this one... Nope! It's not natural and it reads really poorly. It's so extreme and there is no grey zone, there is only black or white. And the only character that sees grey is the main one, and even then it doesn't feel real or natural.

Even when others views "change" they aren't given any story arc that would have changed them... They don't have an arc, they sort of just are. None of the characters feel true, either to the story or themselves. You never actually feel connected to any character or understand their wants and desires.. It's just really poorly told, which sucks, because it had a lot of promise.

Now I have a HUGE issue with some of the plots (sub plots?) in this webtoon:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the suicide of the principal, the death/murder of the original black turtle (like seriously, WTF!?!), Yulbi and the other corpses, the current black turtle's motive, the green haired bad-guy's motive or backstory in general (did he even get one?), Ryun's death/suicide, the Phoenix's "wish", the underground casino, the principal (as a whole, his whole F'ing story), Irang's god (the way he is shown... especially towards the end.. leaves you with a feeling like he was the main bad guy, even though he really shouldn't be), Irang's future self (what a dick), the "romance", and obviously basically every backstory that doesn't move the plot anywhere.


I will not be recommending this webtoon to anyone. I'm sorry, it just didn't do anything for me. There is too much wrong in this webtoon to override the good.

Yet another manhwa about kids with ridiculous powers that live in an equally ridiculously oppressed society which seams to have been thought by a mid schooler and is thus as solid as a bubble in a storm. Add to that terrible main characters, an inconsistent cast of secondary characters and disconnected dialogues and you get Flow, a copy paste of 20 other similar korean manhwas, they just change the setting and the manhwaka.
Don't waste your time, tried to keep reading since someone said it gets better but 30ch in and it gets worse and worse. Dropped.

A Complicated Review

The story starts out very generic:
You get the typcial lead character, the elite best friend and the childhood friend that the MC has an unrequited love for. The MC finds out he has a hidden power and must start at the bottom of the ladder to get stronger by constantly encountering individuals who are stronger than him.

Then the author really ups his game and starts to weave some complex plots and emotional character paths.
The problem is you can predict how the series will end a couple of chapters before it finishes.
The ending itself feels unsatisfying makes this series feel like a waste of time to me.

This manga is essentially someone who wanted to change everything for himself, then working to reverse everything that he is done

it is a well executed piece that yes the beginning seems strange, but it becomes apparent with the author as to why he really only seriously develops 2 characters, spoiler as to why below

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
he really only develops the main protagonist and main antagonist because it explains why the protagonist is opposed to the antagonist despite both being oppressed as younger children. In the end, the protagonist decides to do a suicide mission to defeat the antagonist and erase both from the world, thus giving reason that while all the side characters were not as defined as the 2 main, since the 2 main were erased the side characters can now proceed with their life


it was a good manga and is now in my top 25

Disappointment. This series had so much potential, I loved the beginning of it (upto the first 30 chapters), then everything went down hill. I don't mind deaths in a series, my opinion is the same for this. But there were too many unnecessary deaths. And at the end of the series all the deaths are pointless. Literally pointless. Art wise its's great. ROMANCE wise; It had so much potential and I would have loved it if the ending/story was better. But no, the author ruined it. The ending of Flow is worse than the ending for Akame Ga Kill's anime. If you don't want to be disappointed and feel like you wasted time, dont't read it. However if you want to be disappointed, this is the series for you.

Its a waste of time. Don't read it. I don't know why they started translating it again. There are much better series with far less disappointment,

As it has been said. The beginning is incredibly strong. But it rapidly deteriorates, veering more and more until the doesn't seem to be any logical reason for decisions other than the author thinking it would be cool. Their was a lot of potential that unforunately was thrown away for a much more boaring plot.

The beginning of the series makes it seem like it has a unique plot and some potential character development. Well, both only get worse as the story goes on. That, coupled with the ambiguous animation, which quickly turns bland, makes the entire webtoon easily droppable. I read until chapter 52, but I should have dropped it sooner.

TL;DR - Good beginning, terrible execution.

Flow seemed promising at first: an intriguing concept, gorgeous background and creature art (which initally masked the less-than-stellar character art), as well as a fast story pace that kept you from being bored at first.

However, it eventually becomes apparent that the author didn't take the time for proper world, plot and character building. The people in this world are unecessarily cruel and elitist for a modern society that shouldn't merely depend on power levels. The governance structure makes no sense at all. The characters are flat. I had wondered if it would turn into something like His Dark Materials (the Golden Compass in film version), but it ends up becoming a battle shounen like the rest.

There are those manga's/manhwa's that radiates emotions and effort, with pages drenched in creators sweat and tears from making it. Then there are those ones, that are simply there because there's demand for them, they not the ones that take your breath away, but still they follow a certain quality standard. Then there's such a things like "Flow", made by people who flip pancakes with one hand, sew their pants with other one, scratch their nose with left foot, and then deside to draw something with their right foot just because it is free.
