Seriously,I never thought I would want to give a manhwa 10...my rule is always never rate anything perfect score. 9.8 is the highest score I would give.

Review:
It started off slow in the beginning,but that's only the foundation. The story grows and becomes much more deeper as you read further. There is so many character progression and story, I am also amazed at how much strategy and mind play, I can see how much the author put work into the plot and such, amaze me with the progress of the story. Oh,I always love creative strategy and character progression. There is also numbers of character and many of them are made with distinct diversity.

and many other that many had said...
you should read it and see if it's overrated or not. For me, it really touch the spot.
have many what I love in a story and executing it brilliantly.

So far there is not much depth in the characters. They donít seem to talk much to each other and they donít seem to question more why they are there and what happened to the real world. And we donít even hear about the real world. Baam is not shown very much characterization although I can tell he is a good character. Baam feelings for Lahel are good however Lahel needs some work on her character so far as well. Another thing is that the characters seem quick to want to kill, or donít seem to mind if they kill (no psychological aspect) which doesnít make much sense and is not very realistic. And the series does not feel realistic in any sense either. Which is fine, Dorohedro, for example doesnít not feel realistic and is great.
Another thing about Baam. The author, again made things unrealistic by having people help out Baam in the beginning of the story, when they did not know him. Also people seem to take akin to helping out Baam, which does not make sense when they are so mean to other people.
The author seems to know about this world and this world is very vast however the tests donít seem to be proving a whole lot and the authorís concept of God is off.
Overall without the psychological aspect in this story, I can say that this story is a very good shounen. Leaps and bounds better then bleach and the likes. These critiques do not mean that is it bad by no means. But like every series it has the potential to be better and I see how it could.
What this series really needs is depth, to me, depth is the most important thing.
This is why my rating is as it stands.


47-107
Okay so Iíve changed my rating. S.I.U. is quite impressive for sure. The characters all look different and are very creative and Mr. S.I.U. even made more story in the characters and character development. So why 9.5 and not 10? Because, well it may be personal thing or personal bias idk but I still donít get a full understanding or dialogue with the charactersÖ basically Iím asking for the characters to speak more and more in depth. I felt like I finally got a bit of that in the [untrusting room] arc, but Iím still looking for more, but the author is going towards that direction so I am currently very happy. For a girl to be impressed by a shounen, especially me is pretty good. smile Now I understand more of the storyline so some of my critiques donít apply, however I will leave them there. I am anxious to see more and continue reading this potentially incredible series.

108-130

Baam is amazing, and looks incredible! <3 ..Thats all I wanted to say. hehe

Considering how vast TOG world is, there's so much possibilities and potential for this webtoon. We have only read up to Floor #30, there's still 70 more floors left and yet so many mysteries still unsolved and some many conflicts to put a end to. Well.. I'm going to make a comparison to HxH.. in HxH, Gon & Killua had to clear that tower.. they simply had to clear it, there weren't much other conflicts involving in that.... the ultimate goal for both of them was to get stronger and pass that tower. For TOG it is different, there's so many goals and conflicts in that one 100 floors tower that it'll take a while for this webtoon to end, there's just too much questions left to be answered. TOG's tower is much more serious and realistic than HxH's tower. Climbing up the tower in TOG can be compared to climbing the social ranking tower in real life. Some people thinks that becoming billionaires and millionaires will make them happy. Some that climbed up the ranks forgot their ultimate goal in life because they have changed. Many aspects of TOG can be related to. At first TOG is kind of slow but yet interesting as you keep on going. This story is the type of novel that builds up and eventually grows on to you to a point that you can't wait for the next chapter. I'm a really patience person, I tend to forget that I was waiting for a chapter to come out after 2-3 days of reading the recent chapter. even if it was super exciting example: Skip beat recent chapters (omg Ren x Kyoko actions finally after so long..)... but TOG.. there are just some chapters that I can't wait to come.. chapter 50 Season 2, I'm eagerly waiting for that chapter! Eventually when you reread TOG, you'll feel so many new things and reasons/foreshadowing that the author has thrown in that you didn't notice until you reread it. I have to admit that SUI introduces so many characters that I sometimes forget who is who.. especially if I haven't reread the webtoon in like 6 months or so. His characters are really well developed but yet some has less show time than others so you couldn't remember some of those characters but they might appear again, for example that Ahjumma in Season 1; I couldn't remember her name.. ahh.. I'm blabbering too much.. there's just too much I can say about this webtoon cause it's just that EPIC & awesome.. I'll stop here with "READ IT!"

Incredible

This is definitely my favorite manga/manhwa/webtoon that is still on going. The world SIU (the author) creates is vast yet intricate, but even more impressively, cohesive. He introduces an incredible amount of characters and detail, but still maintains focus, constantly evolving the story. Speaking of which, the plot mystifies one with its complexity and brilliance. There are so many motives and plans by different characters/groups and many interconnections between them that the anticipation to see how it all plays out is overwhelming. It's impressive how much "realism" SIU can bring to such a creative and fantasy based premise. Perhaps there is a better word than realism, but whatever the case, the world makes sense given the circumstances. It makes sense that not everyone succeeds or lives. It makes sense how the characters behave and feel given the environment. Furthermore, the character development is also top notch (especially the main). I would add more detail but this post is already too long. To finish covering the bases though, the art is very well done though not my absolute favorite style, the fighting is awesome, and the comedic elements are a nice change of pace at times. The only negatives I can think of are that it's sometimes a bit confusing considering how much is going on (and perhaps that it's translated) and some may people may want more attention around the main character. However, these are hardly significant and I recommend this manhwa over all others in a similar category.

the author seems to have a deep understanding of this huuuuge world he's created. You'll have to read translations of the blog posts on the batoto forums and at the end of some chapteres to get a feel of the scope of his planning.
I love extensive worldbuilding. bigrazz

It started a bit slow, but yesterday, I couldn't fall asleep, I got so much into it ^^
It may not be the best thing ever, but this is the FIRST MANGA IN 3 YEARS that got me so excited, so yeah, right now, this is my fav smile (It really didn't happen to me for a long time that I was actually CURIOUS about the next chapter)

In a way plot of this manga has a different feeling... it may not be completely "different" from everything else (is that even possible?) but I like the flow of the things...and frankly, I really like this type of manga.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Poor Baam in 1st part...betrayed like that! But I guess he needed it to mature... //Die Lahel, b1a7ch! Vrrrr....! Betraying such a cute thing!// I am glad she still stayed ugly in 2nd part and that Koon is always being smart and realized her lies...and I'm really curious what's going to happen when he meets "Viole"


I just hope it won't fall into some sort of stereotype, and plot keeps on evolving smile

Thrilling!

This is my first review but I actually wanted it to be a short comment. The main character is straight off mysterious but surprisingly optimistic. He's sorta like a child with his innocence of having no knowledge but that makes him special in the tower, where people will show their most selfish side. The setting and background is fantastic even though its not completely detailed, the whole thrilling part of the story is how vague and exciting it is. With this type of setup no one could ever guess what happens next. The plot itself is a mind bending setup. I mean what would you do to have any wish you wanted to be granted. To face obstacles and see yourself grow is a strong point in this series.It does get too dull at moments but it always picks up quickly. The main noticeable problem is probably the art. Feels like its just sketched and and colored at points but at least its decently colored. After reading this I knew I like webtoons/manwhas more than mangas now because the stories are so in depth and extraordinary. I wish i could wait whole months and read like 10 chapters afterwards but this makes me want to check everyday and see what happens next. Give it a try. Hopefully you wont regret it!

This series is going to progress to be a masterpiece and if (more like when) there is an anime of it it will be a classic and one of the most popular of this generation (think Lelouch, Death Note). It's a VERY good story and the characters are VERY well developed and the author is very good at building the story at the correct pace where the story doesn't get spoiled, the world is very vast, but waiting for the ending is just excruciating even though it is so far. If this gets published into paper and sold, I will DEFINITELY buy it. The art is excellent, I'd give it a 11/10 if I could. You are a fool if you don't start reading this NOW

Best Webcomic out there? I believe so.

Like many users from this site, during the last year, I've been getting more into webcomics. At first I didn't think I'd like it very much and I was very reluctant before reading my first one. Ever since then I've read a few. It's an extraordinary type of story telling that brings some priceless gems. Tower of God, in my honest opinion, stands on top. I finished re-reading it just a bit ago, read the whole thing in half a day couldn't stop even though it was my second time reading through the scenes.

The first... hmm... Maybe 10 chapters feel a little slow, strange and fragmented. But it still doesn't take long to heat up. From those 10 chaps onward we get a steady quality rise. The characters look weird at first and don't seem very likable, but as soon as the author starts using them and mixing them with the story you'll start seeing them in a new light. It doesn't take long for you to be laughing with the characters, feeling their pain and cheering for them. They're not shallow in the slightest. Well developed and bringing forth strong and deep dialogue, the characters that once looked so strange and unrelatable are now real. Facing an overwhelming situation with emotions rising up, you can feel their struggle against something beyond their reach - beyond even their comprehension.

The action is exciting and well placed. It's not one where you get bored between battles, since you definitely won't be reading it for the action solely, but it still does not forget its exciting fighting scenes which are, almost always, mixed with interesting challenges, tests and strategies that turn simple battles into something more. The fights bear meaning and emotion. The powers and abilities are cool and Shinsoo is well introduced into the world. The positions for the battles are well thought and pretty original and just add up to the fun.

The world is amazingly well created. Talse uzer story. You can definitely tell the author spend quite a lot of time and dedication into the creation of such a wide and interesting world. This becomes more clear as the story moves along, especially when you get to the second season and read the infos about the 14 or 15 highest ranked people on the Tower. I dare say it is one of the fictional worlds with the most potential I've ever seen, I think it easily takes a spot in the top 10. I hope the author explores even more after ending ToG even if the story isn't directly connected to the events of ToG.

The art evolves. A lot. It gets much better, especially in the second season. It's still not close to being the best webcomic art out there,but it's pretty good and fits perfectly with the style of the story.

Prepare yourself for great comedy, exciting action, deep characters, unexpected twists, amazing world and non-stop entertainment. Definitely worth a read.

This is like a super epic fantasy tale, in web comic form. It starts slowly, but if you keep up and read the first season, you'll be absolutely THRILLED to read more. This comic has tens of thousands of views weekly and is the #1 rated webcomic as of now. Give it a shot and you'll probably like it.

Edit: "very overrated"? I've read hundreds of manga these past months, and I've yet to come towards anything that comes close. I might be biased, but I believe it's well worth its praise.. just don't weigh too much down on the art, it's a web toon after all. Maybe that's what makes it amazing: it's a webtoon, yet its universe and characters are insanely profound for the medium.

TL;DR: so far Tower of God hasn't disappointed. At the very least, it's an entertaining and unique read.
HIGHLY recommended.
