Description
From The Company:
Gods with everlasting lives. Sura who possess unrivaled power. And humans, caught helplessly in-between.
When Kubera’s peaceful village meets its fiery end, a mysterious magician named Asha comes to her rescue. Together they begin on a journey in search of answers and revenge. Meanwhile across the realms, a web of entwined fates is growing tighter. One by one the other players of the game will emerge, each with their own agenda to pursue.
At the center of this maelstrom stands Kubera, the girl with a god's name. Will this sixteen-year-old be the salvation of the world or its destruction?

You can definitely read it it. You'll probably like it too, but there will be parts where you'll want to pull out the characters' hair painfully. While there are some good points about this manga, there are more irritating aspects which make me hesitate proceeding to the next chapter. The following is a list my grievances with this manga. Spoilers ahead.

1. Agni's relationship with the priestess. Agni's character has a lot of potential but he is ALWAYS held back by the weak ass priestess, ergo we never get to see his cool side, just his never ending sob story about how he can't do stuff because he 'lobes' her sho mach, bohoohoo.
2. Kubera, the girl herself. I know that character is supposed to be dimwitted, but really? REALLY?! After facing so much throughout your journey you still remain a retard and bring trouble to people around you always playing the victim and the readers are supposed to be just okay with it? FU!
3. Sagara, please die.
4. God Kubera, your non-existent sob story makes me want to push you down the cliff you are standing on in the present chapter.
5. Did anyone else notice how we haven't been given any story background even after 245 painful chapters? Throw us something, anything. It's very painful to try and read 200+ chapters whithout knowing what motivates the characters.

This is the kind of series that gets better every time you re-read it. The more you read, the more you realize just how well-planned this story is. It is mind-boggling, because it feels like the story you could never over-analyze. All the mysteries suggested in the story (thus far, anyway) are solvable, with enough effort.
It seems like not that much happens, but this story is so much more than that. The set-up (and I don't mean paragraphs of exposition) takes over 60 chapters, and the main story, if we can even call it that, really only gets going at 200+ chapters.
At this point, a reader would be wondering: is that sort of time really worth it? Currygom (the author and illustrator) clearly relies on show, not tell. There are no paragraphs of exposition. Every single bit of information flows and comes back to bite (flashbacks, one-liners in conversation, random thoughts---everything is significant). It's crazy just how... seem-less and thought-out the entire thing is, and how all the characters (main + significant side ones) are fleshed out. When I mean everything has a reason, I'm not exaggerating. Each character has their own motives, and this affects their behavior (which of course changes with time and the person they're interacting with). Nothing is static.
Basically, if you're reading Kubera with the intention of getting the traditional shounen-fantasy experience, you're not going to like it. Despite how it looks, it is truly for mystery/problem lovers/solvers. Reading this story is pretty much detective work, and the plot can quickly become frustrating if you don't put effort into understanding why the characters are acting the way they do.

When I first read this I really didn't like it because: Kinda hard to understand, so many things to remember
But as I got further it's actually interesting and great except for the dialogue that are too long to read (I still read them anyway) Actually I think the reason why I didn't like it in the beginning is because the plot is still developing...
But because I like it now dosen't mean I like it all the time...what?
I'm saying that there are parts or sometimes "arks" that I don't like but they don't like part dosen't really last that much anyway so I'll give a 10/10

Well, I must to say this the only way you can really enjoy this. The original story was built as a novel so this really deep to get. Honestly, by now after re-read countless time, research infomation like crazy in net. I still not fully get some plots. well, may be i'm quite dumb.

That i want to say, kubera is the story nearly entire different compare with real world. different universe, different planet, race, natural things, rule, history ...... with many characters who has an important role in story. The story not only wiew throught as the main lead but each of side character.
so many mistery, event and future - present - and past bound strongly with each.

in first time i read, i complete confused as well. But I knew this is very well made story though i don't really get it. well, infact i drop it in FROZEN TEAR when I not done the first read. Just because I can't bear with tragedy, Teo and gandrvan is the most my favourite. still, i keep check weekly realese in hope. AND .......... so muchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh happy

On Kubera and its loveliness

Kubera is one of the rare shounens I've read, and I regret not reading it until now. This is one heck of a manhua, and I say this with complete adoration, seriously, where do I begin?

Right of the bat, the story cuts straight to the chase and delves into the amazingly complex plot, never slowing down for the reader to comprehend what the actual crap just happened. Kubera throws you with multiple characters, the story from their point of view, and intervenes it with the other main character's, folding the layers upon layer of threads into a tapestry- masterpiece. Ugh such beaut. I've read it all in one go, and I KNOW I have to read it again, why? because it's so rich with double meaning. The subtle foreshadowing, and hints throughout the story is mind boggling and hints at the growing mystery while disguising itself as an answer (and it makes me so happy inside i cry, i cry so hard). It almost reminds me of Game of Thrones because of its intricateness.

This is the best mystery manhua/or manga for that matter, that I have read. You can make your predictions about characters/events but as the story progresses you realise nothing is for certain. Kubera's core plot is also labelled, by the author, as a love story. And that's another reason for why Kubera is amazingly-awesomesly-i-want-to-read-it-erryday you have the mystery, the action, the drama, the romance, interspersed together with comedy and woven together with this kick ass plot, merde, why wouldn't you read this? (unless you hate those things, in which case I am judging you)


So yeah, do yourself a favour, read Kubera. Why? because KUBERAAAAAA (yeah I'm totally not biased, nope)

... and multiple characters, then you will enjoy this series. If you also like fantasy, adventure, and supernatural elements to go along with your multi-layered main dish, then you will especially like Kubera.

This webtoon has dozens of characters, all of whom have some significance, and dozens of plot lines, all that overlap with each other in some form or fashion. So it is really important to remember at all the characters' names, the names of who they are related to and how they are related, what they did in the past, what they said to other characters in the past, what they are doing at present, who they are involved with in the present, and what they plan to do in the future. And just to reiterate, there is a crazy amount of characters.

The plot.... well, just read above paragraph and apply it to plot lol. Theories abound for this series, and they are just as complex and convoluted as the story. I will say that Kubera has created an entire world with different intelligent species, hierarchies, planets, cities, etc.

If this story sounds interesting because of its romance... well, it is not that there is not romance, but it is better to read it for something else. The artist herself said that she sucks at romance (ha), which is odd because she also said that Kubera at its heart is a love story. I'm not quite sure how that works, because what little is seen of it is both heart-breaking and cringe-worthy.

As a reader -- and as a person -- who likes things simple, Kubera really isn't my cup of tea. But there's about four or five characters that I really like, including the (supposedly) main character, Leez. Plus I do love the comedy aspect -- currygom, when she isn't busy torturing her characters (and her fans), has a good sense of humor. The art is nice too.

TLDR; If you like to imagine an entire different world with an entire different set of rules, read Kubera. If you are like me and prefer something linear that doesn't require a lot of thought, you may want to pass on this series.

You need to read carefully

This manhwa is unlike most manga/manhwa out there, where the authors would drag the plot because they want their story to last longer. Each part of Kubera's plot is planned out for a purpose, and surely not for increasing the number of pages. You need to REALLY get into the Kubera world building and truly follow all characters to really enjoy Kubera, because any character whose faces are shown (for insignificant characters currygom doesn't draw their face) has an important role to play and each detail of the world building will reveal something important about the story. I used to read Kubera just for the romance and wasn't really into it at first. Then one day I was bored enough to re-read Kubera from the very first chapter (Kubera was already running its second season at that time). After the re-reading, I understand Kubera so much better and was truly hooked to the story.
That's my conclusion: Kubera is not the type of manga you can skim through and read only the parts that you like, Kubera can only and will 90% surely become your favorite once you are able to spend some time reading it carefully and understand what it is all about.
I rate this 10/10. One of very few masterpieces that one could stumble upon. Other masterpieces I could remember are Monster and Hyakki Yakoushou.

I have to admit I didn't take Kubera very well at first. Bland artwork, retarded main character, majority of suffering caused by character miscommunication, very confusing at first read. That's first impression and it stuck with me for well over a year of reading it as Tog past time.

Fortunately slow update times got me to the batoto forums in search of raw translation, and reading the discussions made me realize how much has flown right past me. So I took my time and researched the whole thing, and since then it has been one of the most gratifying reads in my 10 year reading history, and now it's Tog that's Kubera past time for me.

(I hope SIU gets his surgery done and get back to season 1 quality and complexity instead of "You just activated my trap card" back and forth.)

It's a tragedy through and through, so be warned. You have to do your homework too. And it's slow, but when you get to climax, it's a very long climax too. Painful, even.

Obviously I'm rating just my enjoyment from it, and it's a bit on the masochist side.

I think just that one word sums it up.

Sadly, a lot of the story is written in a very confused way and the secrets aren't exactly revealed in a way that would make it any less confusing. What mostly stands out is suffering of certain characters and you often can't help but think "BUT NOTHING OF THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF THEY ACTUALLY TALKED INSTEAD OF KEEPING MORE SECRETS OMG." It certainly seems like most of the characters are set on keeping their suffering for themselves. On the positive side, the world building in Kubera is quite nice and many of the characters are awesome. It does however feel like the author is not quite managing to keep all those characters up on the level they were introduced and because 90% of the story is spent on the many characters suffering, the story advances very slow. If you don't read it at once, you will probably forget during the month or two or three what was even happening to the group that wasn't in picture for a while, because there just is that many characters - and the count is growing.

Overall I still enjoy this series and don't really understand those that keep comparing this to Tower of God as I can't really see much in common between the series. Sure, the genre is similar, but you can say that about many others. Is it because both of them are Naver webcomics and even scanlated by same group while being fantasy shounen adventure? I don't really understand that.

Annoying (almost) ret-r-ed character's. I get interested in reading this because people keep comparing it to ToG saying it's better.

I read it, clean my browser history and start re-reading ToG from the beginning to get rid of the bad taste it left in my mind.

P.S - To people who keep comparing manhwa/manga/novel. Keep that sh- to yourself.
