Such a disappointment.

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 ^^

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?)

Painfully Deriative

Tower of God doesn't have a single original or interesting idea in it. It's a RPG aspired story with a messianic main character with a million rehashed fantasy elements and dizzying amount of characters. It's the dollar grocery store fantasy paperback equivalent of manga/manhwa with mediocre writing and poor art. Reading this feels like playing a table top RPG with a novice Dungeon Master. The author clearly has a lot of ideas he wants to play with but he just doesn't have the skill to properly world build while being engaging at the same time. Maybe some can enjoy this series if this is first kind of RPG style fantasy you've encountered but by no means is this anything noteworthy.

The uncomfortable truth about Tower of God is that if it was a Japanese manga instead of one of the first popular korean webcomics, it wouldn't have nearly as much hype.

I've been read ToG since long time ago and I still conclude that this manhwa is top-class (even the season 2). Yet, even few (maybe a lot) people say the opposite. I'll just say, "this world is truly vast"...

I started to read this webtoon because of it's high popularity and high rating.. and people might strongly disagree with me, but I hated it.. the story was really boring, many characters appeared, and I couldn't stand it more.. even though I hated it, I forced myself to read more chapters, just because I wanted to see if the story might get at least better, but I was wrong.. it was really~~~~~~~~ boring, so I dropped it...

You nailed it - I have nothing to add but an agreement.
My biggest guess is that the author runned out of juice - not even a surprise since he's been keeping up pretty well before recent arcs. The biggest problem the author faces is that he has created too many important characters before they even appeared - now he doesn't know how to weave it all perfectly, thus the arcs drag like no other.

Unexpected...

When I started reading this, I was expecting maybe a good story, but I didnt expect a story worthy of the rating this one has, for various reasons. But I read patiently (cause it took me like 40 chapters to get to.this: ) and I discovered that this one deserved its fame (well at least for me, since I got to read it thanks to it).
There are a lot of things you can put into question in ToG, but the thing is, if you are a good and interested reader, you'll know the author gives you all the tools you need to work out any doubts you may have. The world building, characters, and plot are thoroughly thought, and insofar you advance into the story, all of them intertwine in an interesting, smart and unexpected way, and along with that, the games and tournaments as well as fights and plot development are distributed accordingly thus to the need of the story as the requirements of the audience in an incredibly balanced output (maybe this applies to the 2nd season rather than the 1st).
At least I think this is not a story to be taken lightly.
