I've fallen out of love

Season 1 was 10/10... but the 2nd half of season 2 changed that.
Prior to the the "Hell Train" arc, I was absolutely in love with this webtoon.

Season 1 had everything it needed to make a great story, and even had a HUGE twist at the end.
Season 2's first part was great, and I cried many times while watching Baam warm to the new cast of characters....

and then.... everything just kinda slowed to a mush. Rachael ruined this series, lol. She really isn't suitable to be a heroine. Also, Baam, as many others said, seems like another Sasuke-chasing Naruto.. And that is disappointing considering what he has been through.

Ever since the training gap year thing, things have been very slow---and it's disappointing. Baam is now inconsistent even though he is the most important character... I'm sad.

I've following this webtoon for over a year... so it's hard to stop reading. But I'm thinking of just dropping this for now... I might pick it up again when it ends.

Part 2 = Garbage

Seriously WTF just happened to this webtoon ? Starting from Workshop battle arc it seemed to have lost all it's charm...

what is the purpose fro Baam climbing the tower now confused to chase after Rachel confused to confront Rachel confused and then do what confused Musings of Naruto chasing after Sasuke written all over it....

Shame because i thought this Webtoon really had potential, but the author completely took the wrong turn starting from that workshop battle arc which was hyped up so big but failed at everything....now we are left with too many useless characters who serve no purpose, Lame MC who has no purpose and Plot that could have been an epic grand scale adventure turned into obsessive and Voyeuristic attempt to cling onto something

I like ToG. I has many characters, its interesting keeping a tab on them all. It manage to be both funny and serious at times. There are a lot of nice twists here and I await the moment when all of these OP characters will start turning on each other - OP battle is dream come true. However... lately it seems to be stuck. I stopped reading more than a year ago in order to wait for more chapters and when I decided to catch up I found out that for that time nothing happened! WTF?! New characters are there but the old ones are pretty scarce. Bam acts too cold and damn it! Why the hair? I liked his girlish looks :< Oh, well. ToG is again on hold and I`ll probably give it a try after maybe 60-70 new chapters. See you next year ^^

Declining Quality   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0

This webtoon is divided into 2 parts and sadly even the quality is divided into 2 just as that

Part 1
- Team Work
- Great Characters
- Great Games
- Mystifying Tower and it's secret
....Overall PERFECT! 10/10

Part 2
- Great Beginning, Dark baam was good reveal at first
- Workshop arc it stars "the Slow Death" of this webtoon
- Redundant and too many lame characters, now it's hard to keep track of anybody...
- Games does not have that same shine that Part 1 have infact it feels Boring and draggy
- Lame twists and manipulation, doesn't have that "Wow WTF" Factor of part 1
- MC doesn't have any Goal except Chasing Rachel (aka sasuke)

I have to say part 2 has made me completely despise this webtoon and hence the low score

Rachel?

While the 1st season was great, the 2nd season is kinda a bummer. Serious drop on quality of writing.

On the other note, I still don't really understand Baam's motivation. I mean, cmon,she's not even Jennifer Aniston's Rachel. She's the backstabbing jerk Rachel. Just hire a high ranker hitman and move on. Baam's whining over and over on how he need to meet Rachel is becoming hard to read.

Only the first season was worth reading

The second season is like whirlwind of characters and arcs...the author endlessly tries to highlight other characters more and more which is confusing because after a while one cannot tell them apart. The main plot only progresses after 60-70 chapters.

The first season of ToG was amazing. Twists, betrayals, and atypical characters were everywhere, and the season ending was a particular highlight.

But at some point early in season 2, something went wrong. The tone changed: a large proportion of the plots became predictable or boring or pointless, the author wrote far more characters than he could meaningfully sustain, etc.

All that said, ToG at its worst is better than many series at their best (e.g. Noblesse) - if that weren't the case, I would've stopped reading a long time ago. As is, I still habitually read each new weekly chapter as it's released, hoping for the brilliance of the first season, but this expectation is basically never met.

I wrote a very long tedious review about how good this manhwa is, and how it will improve over time. Sadly, that does not seem like it will happen.

People argue that season 2 is where things started declining. To be more precise, I think the first 40-50 chapters of the season 2 is super solid, in some ways better than season 1. The art is better and establishing a sense of mystery and foreboding was also quite well done.

That is... until the workshop battle. That's where things REALLY went downhill. It feels like the author transformed into a totally different person.

Possible reasons for the declining quality?
(1) author's habitual wrist problem, which apparently still needs surgery or some effective long-term treatment --> affects the coloring, art, and how many quality panels you can dedicate
(2) overall health --> less creative, less logical flows, bad dialogues, tendency to draw things out, etc. Being a comic writer is tough on one's health.
(3) stopped giving a damn --> hey it's a problem that many artists face. It's possible the author just stopped giving a damn.

Here are my tips to the author:
(1) take a long ass hiatus: no one gives a shit about this manhwa at this point
(2) work on improving health: meditation, proper sketching posture, exercise, diet, etc.
(3) improve on art, especially action scenes
(4) announce to publishers that the last 120 chapters was all part of a lame joke - a demonstration of what poor story writing is all about
(5) start a whole new workshop battle and actually make it good and logical OR take the story in a whole different route.

The most appealing aspect of tower of god is its world building. But it suffers in its execution and details. The first season was very good at the execution and details, and combining that in conjunction with a dedicated wiki page gave the series a sense of balance and mystery. I've been reading Tokyo Ghoul and I'm amazed by the level of sophisticated dialogues and plot building. But it still manages to establish that sense of macro-level big scale that leaves people wanting more.

This webtoon is amazing , SIU is genius , i finish reading and it is the best thing i've ever read , the story and the world , everything about it is so refreshing , the thing that surprises me the most is , there are characters that didn't make any appearance and yet at the same time the way i started to love them was equal or higher to the ones that we see every time and are present in the story .

When i finish the story i went to visit the wiki and reading all the info , i realize i know nothing about this comic even after i finish reading all both seasons , it seems the author released info about the story and the characters that hasn't appeared yet and put it in his blog their background or their accomplishment , you can find the translation in the wiki . I am looking forward to when those characters appear .

ToG is the best webtoon i have ever read, even though it started a bit boring and at one point I was even thinking of dropping it ... but ToG got better and better! I love all the characters, especially Baam/Viole, because he really is loveable and has an interesting background. The art is also really beautiful, I can't get enough of it ^^
