Much better than expected

This is waaaaaaay better than I thought it was going to be, and a lot more complex in a good way. I like the way these characters are so different and unique. Although they're all kick-butt strong they have creative always of pulling it off and establishing their loveable personality so although there are a ton of characters there is never any confusion. And although it is pretty much a series of matches to decide who's the strongest there is something going on behind the main picture. I also thought the art was kinda weird at first but now I like it. It's different, sort of flat in a stylized way, but it has a great sense of motion and the anatomy (which is really hard to get right) is usually spot on or close enough to it to look good.

I don't usually read webtoon manhwa manga. But i gotta say once u read this manhwa u would most likely to be interested in it to. It comedy + martial arts, it show those main characters what were their reasons to enter the tournament.I kinda glad they enter just cuz they want to face strong opponent cuz if they all have same reason it would be kinda boring. I can't wait to read more new chapters. i'm looking forward to it biggrin

I'm not sure what manhwa Saphsin was reading, but the supernatural element is introduced even before the martial arts. ri
This series is funny action packed and semi-unpredictable yet consistent. The story quality is staying pretty consistent throughout, which is more than I can say for most manga/manhwa. If you like action/comedies with some drama mixed in, try this.

It's a really solid shounen mahwa.
I love the art style, the plot seems to be going somewhere now but and the character are a little dull.
i have to strongly disagree with Saphsin, this manhwa started with supernatural abilities, hell the first chapter was about supernatural abilities, it's not something that suddenly became a thing it was always there.

Honestly, this starts out really well. It seem in the beginning to have a potentially great plot and characters. But as you keeping on reading the chapters that amazingness you first saw in the beginning begins to disappear and the next thing, you know, your just reading this to read. It seems like the story is not even a coherent story anymore, but really just a bunch of really well drawn fight scenes and some cheeses parts where there is some moral lesson that appear out of no where. All in all read at your on risk. I'll keep reading till I can't take it anymore, so...

Going downhill

The only thing that's gets better over time, is the artwork (In the beginning it was really bad). Outside of it, everything, i mean, everything gets way worse.

The story (if it had one), loses purpose after the High school Tournament. The author tries to keeps things fresh, throwing many new info and story elements at the reader, but the reader is overwhelmed with the amount of bloat this Manhwa becomes.

The characters are just as bad, they have no ambition, no goal, they just keeping getting stronger just for the sake of the (poor) story.

My enjoyment of the series was directly proportional to the number chapters this series had. The more it had, the less i enjoyed.

Overall i give this Manhwa a 4. Below Average. The author does indeed develop himself over the years, but unfortunately, it was just his artwork. Outside of it, you have a really bland battle Manhwa that doesn't try to differentiate itself from the many others out there, it just follows the recipe and hopes for the best.

If this wasn't a webcomic, and was serialized in a Japanese Magazine (Like Shounen Jump, Shuukan Shounen or Shounen Sunday). It would be cancelled ages ago.

I love this manhwa! Some people complain about the plot and I get it. People drop dead and there's this weird magic. You're not sure what's going on, but that's part of the fun since you're going from the tournament fight's POV. The explanation does come later (not all of it, of course) and it blows you away. The fight scenes get better. At first I thought it was a random selection thing between the winner and the loser so that the reader doesn't completely know who's going to win or not. It could still be, but once the big plot is revealed, the tournament doesn't seem to matter. Or the author could bring it back up. Currently, it's amazing.

GOH is actually really good, it gets WAY to much hate for its genre,'s a shounen, what were you expecting, Death Note(Which is good btw). I mean, this manga/webtoon gets WAY to much hate, some idiot actually compared it to PRISON SCHOOL(Which is a lol btw, check it out)...IT MANGA THAT WAS MADE FOR COMEDY. That's like comparing apples to grapefruit,GRAPEFRUIT. So yeah, I'm currently on Session 4, ya know, up-to-date.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
*Pacing is awkward.

*Alot of characters DIE before you can even get to like or hate them

*The MC, Jin Mo-Ri always, shows up at the last minute, AFTER everyone is beaten to a pulp,MENTALLY and PHYSICALLY.

*WAY to much action(which is also a good thing)

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
*ALOT of action(which is also a bad thing)

*Characters are lovable and quite simple.

*Story is good, quite simple to follow.

*Art is great.

*Uses alot of religions and mixes them into one

*Quite funny

Overall, God of Highschool is a great read, but it suffers from the problems(or even solutions) of both Dragon Ball and Bleach. It has the pacing and action of both Bleach and Dragon Ball. Plot holes? What plot holes? Name five.

But yeah, the manga/webtoon is Shounen Jump materiel, if this was a Japanese manga published by Shounen Jump, it would be the next BIG thing.

In the beginning this manhwa was great. One of the funniest and most unique stories I've read. Loved the crazy hijinks they got into, loved the totally random art changes, loved the absurd 4th wall breaking moments, loved the hilarious spoofs that poked fun at other popular manga and itself. Couldn't get enough. I was laughing myself silly.

But then for some reason it just stops. That's right it just stops. All the humour from before totally vanishes. Character development becomes non existent. It was as if the author sudden had a stroke and developed a totally different personality. From then on the series was just fight after fight after fight. New characters come in and just start fighting. Some die, some don't. But noone cares. There's zero explanation, no build up, I'm not even sure what the plot was anymore. All 'pizzazz' from before goes down the drain and the series turns from a great comedy to one of the most boring and generic shonein series you've ever read. I was so disappointed in this series.

For readers who want to try a comedy that keeps been funny throughout and doesn't let them down, try reading Prison school. Now that's what this series should of been like if the author didn't get dropped on his head.

Chinese Wuxia & Journey to the West in Modern Seoul   
Rating: N/A

If you have ever watched Chinese martial arts or wuxia dramas, you'll understand where the fighting styles and the special abilities are coming from. Fighting with cards? No problem. God power coming out of no where? It's daily life for youxia. Mysterious sects in head shroud? It's everywhere in Jianghu.

In the beginning, even with the wuxia influence, the webcomic still makes sense. But as more chapter comes out, things just pop out of no where so randomly. I totally LOLed when the Monkey King, Sun Wukong, from Journey to the West, complete with his headpiece and pole, which btw came out from the moon, showed up. It's not that having those elements are bad, it's having them with all the other things from different worlds. Now we have wuxia x journey to the west worlds fused into one.

This webcomic has progressed to a stage where it's so ridiculous it's hilarious. Oh well, at least you'll laugh. But I wouldn't say Season 3 is as bad as some other reviewers say. I'll say it still has a plot, even though elusive. If you're not familiar with Journey to the West, you'll be confused with all the monkeys, gourd, and cow king stuff. Since I'm very familiar with it and wuxia, so it's just fun for me. Watch Journey to the West if you want to understand season 3 better. If you like GOH with all of its eclectic glories, check out some Chinese wuxia dramas. Start with Jin Yong's, and definitely Journey to the West.
