Description
From: Easy Going Scans

Sul is a gardener living in the heart of a city - a veritable concrete jungle. He is an avid gardener and his yard is filled with rare plants which he tends with loving care. The townsfolk object to his practices, claiming that the plants are 'dangerous'.

One night, his garden is ravaged by a sudden, intense fire. Sul, who was blinded in the blaze, is hospitalized...and promptly lapses into a coma. While his niece anxiously awaits his revival, Sul finds himself trapped in a world full of many and varied trees; the likes of which he had never seen before. A world that, at first glance, appears to be his ideal utopia. But he soon discovers that there is unmistakeable cruelty lurking beneath the facade of beauty and tranquility...

this is a beautiful piece of work that is more than just an environmental awareness propaganda. It embodies morals in breathtaking ways~

Surprisingly, I cried A LOT reading this.

as it is, it is quite a good story, with nice character, interesting plot and breath taking art. but i would love a bit more- i'm very intrigued by those two gods and how do they came to be. a prologue would be highly appreciated.

Hands down THE BEST webcomic I have ever read.

The artwork is amazing, but the storyline is what really makes it shine. It reads like a legend, with a beautiful ending. I would highly, highly recommend this. There is no heavy political nature-versus-civilization message in the slightest. The characters are well-formed and none are wasted; each plays a role in tying the story together.

The art was definitely original- to me, at least. Is it weird to say that I cried? (Then again, I was listening to some pretty- er- nice? music -while reading this) I loved how it wrapped up in the end- so perfectly. There's no other way to see it. I'm no critic, but this... this was a balanced equation.

This manhwa is a remarkable achievement. It has great art and characters and an awesome story, but must importantly, after finishing you will know that the author planned quite meticulously in advance.
Also, the ending fits well with the rest of the story.
Read it! (But do remember that the story has some tragic elements - it should be obvious from the very first chapter, but people _do_ die in this story.)

It's not every day I find a manga with an old man as the main character and really like it. Everything from the art to the premise to the characters seemed nice and original. The art looks a little weird at first but you get used to it and it's quality and style is really great anyway. It really suits the story and the detail and colors were great. And that old man is actually pretty lovable and deep. Even the crazy evil girl villain had some very multi-faceted characteristics. As for the ending, I liked it. smile Didn't feel rushed and it wasn't completely depressing, like a lot of series I read are. It had a nice "aaaaah, nice story, so pretty, yup" feeling to it.

Breath-taking

The art is just beautiful. I'm in love with it, especially with pastel colors.
Scenery is vibrant, and juicy. The effects are stunning and live.
The plot is very interesting, serene in a way(thanks to the main character).
Each character has it's own share of time in the manga in order for all main characters to develop in balance. Plot is well paced, there is no feeling of fillers everything feels well planned and just where it should be.

The manga is breath-taking. I am in love with it.

Really Good

While I do agree that the storyline is very intriguing, has an amazing plot, and the characters seem to have a low amount of cliches, I don't think the storyline is about showing the opposite extreme of polluted dystopia. In fact, I believe that by using such an extreme, it further shows the polluted aspect of civilization. Basically, It's kind of like Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, which uses subjugating women as a way to speak strongly for feminism.

On the other hand, the color really does make all the difference, allowing the reader to take in the world in which the old man was thrust in. It's not that the storyline is bad, and the art makes up for it, but that the story and the art complement each other.

Overall, a incredibly well thought out manhwa that will leave you wondering what's going to happen next.

I really like this manwha, although I was a bit dubious at first. The art is really good and the colour really makes it better than average and not ruin it like normal.The story isn't the best but still quite good (still early days though). Its not really what you would expect the story to be, like Dissidence says it's not civilisation bashing but shows another side.

Reading the title and looking at the cover of this web comic one could easily get the idea it excessively portrays the attitude of nature being pure good while civilisation is the source of all evil.
not so.
While at the beginning it really seems like traditional civilisation-bashing with a polluted dystopian city so devoid of nature, this web comic is fair enough to also show the other extreme, which is all I can write without getting spoilerific.
The art is beautiful and original, the story unpredictable but without crazy turns. The characters have a pleasingly low level of cliché.
Very recommended
