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?

If You Like A Complex Plot...   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

... 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.

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.

The greatest manhwa and webcomic

This is a must read!
It's incredible and great fantasy. The adventure starts with a beautiful journey between the main character and the mysterious young magician. It describe how it is with immortals, it's also with great drama.
I may contain too much for a mystery and world describing, but it worths it.
With also a tragedy breaks the heart, your heart will be also running with story.
The action style is unique and good for who got tired from fighting manga like Dragon Ball.

This manhwa is also blooming from the characters side. The main characters is not everything like many manga such as Naruto. Yeah, you would love many to lots of characters.
Many primary characters and too much of seconday characters. Every primary character would have their big side and background.

Fun to read, unfair for not being as popular as such webcomics like Tower of God and Noblesse.

Pretty much a typical shounen but...

The genders of the characters are different from what you'd usually expect. The typical shounen protagonist Leez loves eating, has superhuman strength but not much technical know-how and gains an item that makes her insanely powerful at controlling magic. Other than the fact that she's a girl, there's not much that sets her apart from other shounen protagonists. The cool, mysterious and tall guy trope has been turned into a female here (Asha) and the sweet, kind girl trope who usually accompanies the team is a guy (Yuta). But then again, if you enjoy shounen, you'd probably love this. In particular, the character design, portrayal and backstory of the Gods are really interesting, and the character designs are intricate and fitting. Another unique point is the constant switching back and forth through different perspectives, such that there isn't a clear antagonist at times (which is good!) since most characters have been so well developed. If you like mainstream shounen, go ahead and give this a try. However, if you're looking for a unique read that steers away from the typical shounen tropes, you'd probably enjoy Tower of God a lot more.

This is a great story. The plot is extremely well-developed, thought out and even-paced. The detail and elaboration is what really makes it stand out. I'm such a fan of this manhwa I don't think I could let myself be disappointed, even knowing sad things may happen... but still, whatever's coming will be exciting, and every piece of information important in some way. All the characters are distinguishable and driven with different goals in which they strive for. There aren't just heros, heroines and vicious foes, but many sides to the story that conflict and intertwine.

However, what I particularly love is that this is an all-in-one type of manga. It's adventurous, comedic (hilarious at times), dramatic and has romance to come (it's apparently romance-based, though subtle as of now)~ And it has it's share of action and battles between the godly-powerful. Waiting for the next however many chapters until it's finished will be unbearably tough... but it's worth it!

Love that it's in full color, and lengthy as well. (it took me days to catch up on it)
If you start reading it, pay attention and take it slower so you can register all the information.
(something I didn't do because I was impatiently speedy... =_=wink

This is one manga i get so excited and happy when they release another chapter. I don't have a specific preference when ready manga manhua webtoons ect and read many different kinds and I must say this one is one of my absolute favs!!!!!!although I do wish releases where faster(who wouldn't want to Know is what's going to happen) however the releases are not slow enough to where I would curse the author for going soooo slow bigrazz ... This was one of the first manga of this type that I have read and I was pleasantly surprised and happy that I started to read it. I personally have nothing bad to say about the story line or art- I LOVE both!!!!!! I appreciated the character development and am enjoying the plot that is starting to come together.and although we get little glimpse Into the future I still can't predict what's going to happen.. And this is one of the first mangas I have read that the story line was not predictable and cliche- so you can see why I'm soo excited about every release!!! If your like me and haven't read this type of manga before, give it a try before you judge!! I kept seeing the release of this manga many times before I tried reading it. I thought it wouldn't be what I was looking for at the time and waited a little before I tried it and boy am I glad i started reading it !! And you will be to!
