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

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

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 ^^

Tower of God started out good with an interesting premise, a good cast (most of them pretty generic) and some intelligent tests/games. There are times you might draw comparison with Hunter x Hunter or some RPG games, but most of the time it standed out on its own.

Yes, it's not original or something unique in even world building (like many people here claims) as ToG borrows most of the world building elements from other works but that's not bad if it's done well.

But the second season has been disappointing. Author has dragged many arcs in the second season maybe thanks to the popularity of Season 1. The tests are boring & they are not intelligent at all like Season 1. Many of the characters are flat & boring, and sadly the main character (Baam/Viole) still remains the same unidimension shonen idiot (the generic protagonist who has a heart of gold but brainless fool). There are battles which are dragged on for many chapters, the fights are boring to be honest. Most of the characters are drawn as some child.

Tower of God was one of my favorite read during its Season 1 despite the main character's generic & flat personality; but Season 2 has ruined it for me. Author seriously needs to stop wasting time on unnecessary things (especially taking more than 30-40 chapters which is terrible).

In short, Tower of God doesn't deserve such high rating.

Rehash? Probably not, and this author knows /exactly/ where this story is going.

I couldn't agree more with Rennov.

A lot of people, after ToG became popular, started complaining that it's a rehash of fantasy elements seen in other mangas; I would argue that it, in actual fact, is not, but the logic which equates this irrevocably with a bad manga is beyond me anyway.

The author knows exactly where this story is going. He is not pulling tricks out of the hat or grabbing at straws to stretch this out. If you read the afterwords in season two you'll realise this, and also that there was no way he could have foreshadowed some things in the ways he did without knowing what was going to happen. The foreshadowing might be subtle, and it might be seen only by those who read the notes The Company attached to the end of each chapter to find out about the ToG universe, but it shows how truly, truly vast the universe is, and just how much the author knows what is happening, and will happen, in his story.

(I have only one last thing to add, and that is to those who say Baam is the standard protagonist who is kind to everyone: what have you to say over the workshop battle now, then? More specifically S2 Chapter 72?)
