One of the first manhwa I’ve read that are finished.

it is certainly one of the best, the plot and the story is neat. Is not too complicated nor it is simple. It’s just neat.

But I do think this needs to have the tragedy tag tho,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
because the MC didn’t really get a happy ending. The only happy ending is for everyone except him.

The twist is amazing about
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the friend of the MC that died in the beginning chapter I think, I forgot since it was years ago the last time I’ve read this

it has been years and the only not regrettable scene is the ending, it was the most memorable ending I’ve ever read in all history of manhwas i’ve read. Definitely recommend. And please ignore the reviews, it’s good if you read it till the end. But it’ll be confusing if you read it only till the middle.

The reason of the bad reviews, I think it’s because this is the kind of manhwa that is better if it’s read in one go.

Yeah it is drop-able but somehow i managed to read whole story in one go without drop in just 4 days... (Very good beginning, terrible in season 2(maybe plot twist and turns&character's blah blah history), good ending as most reader wanted)
You can give a chance to read to kill time (If you like good ending -simple- otherwise just drop it if you think the ending not your taste)

Got Lost After Season One

The first time I read it, it had tons of plot and I really loved how he didn't know that he was important. Then I dropped it, never moving from season one. I tried reading it again starting from the beginning and I thought it was just ok compared to when I first read it. Moving on to season 2 was so hard, it felt like all was lost and the potential was gone. It was like all plot ended in season one.

It's still in my favorites because I love the animal art and season one was nice but I'm probably not picking it up again.

I agree, it's not the best thing I've ever read. But many people are saying that the prologue was very misleading. If you drop it, at least read the last 10 chapters and you'll know what I mean. It's not that bad. I think the ending was fitting.

Too many wrongs can't make a right

I have dropped this webtoon and picked it up so many times.. The art is blah, except the animals, I LOVE the tiger and other animals and the "backgrounds" at certain points, but the people and general art, not for me. But because the art of those animals was so up my ally, I felt this odd compulsion to complete it.

I feel like it started out well, and I liked the ending (honestly, it fit the story just fine). But damn, the middle.. No joke, from around chapter 20 to basically chapter 102 suck. Side characters are given backstories for no real reason (aka it doesn't advance the main plot, nor does it help the sub plots), and plots are never really completed which gives you this constant want for closure that is never allowed. Stories arcs has a natural arc (duh!) and I don't feel any of those arcs in this webtoon. It's like you are constantly on the rise and never get to go down (aka closure) which leaves this bitter feeling. It's hard to explain, but the webtoon just never feels fun or good to read. I've read some extremely depressing manga, but even those are interesting to read (which makes them "fun"), but this one... It's lacking in so many areas.

The unbelievable amount of social injustice and oppression is extreme. It's forced and it's constant and it's shoved down your throat as you read. And it's not believable. I've read other mangas where there is oppression and social injustice and the want for revenge and it's handed beautifully and believably, but in this one... Nope! It's not natural and it reads really poorly. It's so extreme and there is no grey zone, there is only black or white. And the only character that sees grey is the main one, and even then it doesn't feel real or natural.

Even when others views "change" they aren't given any story arc that would have changed them... They don't have an arc, they sort of just are. None of the characters feel true, either to the story or themselves. You never actually feel connected to any character or understand their wants and desires.. It's just really poorly told, which sucks, because it had a lot of promise.

Now I have a HUGE issue with some of the plots (sub plots?) in this webtoon:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the suicide of the principal, the death/murder of the original black turtle (like seriously, WTF!?!), Yulbi and the other corpses, the current black turtle's motive, the green haired bad-guy's motive or backstory in general (did he even get one?), Ryun's death/suicide, the Phoenix's "wish", the underground casino, the principal (as a whole, his whole F'ing story), Irang's god (the way he is shown... especially towards the end.. leaves you with a feeling like he was the main bad guy, even though he really shouldn't be), Irang's future self (what a dick), the "romance", and obviously basically every backstory that doesn't move the plot anywhere.

I will not be recommending this webtoon to anyone. I'm sorry, it just didn't do anything for me. There is too much wrong in this webtoon to override the good.

A mess

Yet another manhwa about kids with ridiculous powers that live in an equally ridiculously oppressed society which seams to have been thought by a mid schooler and is thus as solid as a bubble in a storm. Add to that terrible main characters, an inconsistent cast of secondary characters and disconnected dialogues and you get Flow, a copy paste of 20 other similar korean manhwas, they just change the setting and the manhwaka.
Don't waste your time, tried to keep reading since someone said it gets better but 30ch in and it gets worse and worse. Dropped.

A Complicated Review

The story starts out very generic:
You get the typcial lead character, the elite best friend and the childhood friend that the MC has an unrequited love for. The MC finds out he has a hidden power and must start at the bottom of the ladder to get stronger by constantly encountering individuals who are stronger than him.

Then the author really ups his game and starts to weave some complex plots and emotional character paths.
The problem is you can predict how the series will end a couple of chapters before it finishes.
The ending itself feels unsatisfying makes this series feel like a waste of time to me.

Give it a Chance, Follow Through to the End

This manga is essentially someone who wanted to change everything for himself, then working to reverse everything that he is done

it is a well executed piece that yes the beginning seems strange, but it becomes apparent with the author as to why he really only seriously develops 2 characters, spoiler as to why below

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
he really only develops the main protagonist and main antagonist because it explains why the protagonist is opposed to the antagonist despite both being oppressed as younger children. In the end, the protagonist decides to do a suicide mission to defeat the antagonist and erase both from the world, thus giving reason that while all the side characters were not as defined as the 2 main, since the 2 main were erased the side characters can now proceed with their life

it was a good manga and is now in my top 25

Disappointment. This series had so much potential, I loved the beginning of it (upto the first 30 chapters), then everything went down hill. I don't mind deaths in a series, my opinion is the same for this. But there were too many unnecessary deaths. And at the end of the series all the deaths are pointless. Literally pointless. Art wise its's great. ROMANCE wise; It had so much potential and I would have loved it if the ending/story was better. But no, the author ruined it. The ending of Flow is worse than the ending for Akame Ga Kill's anime. If you don't want to be disappointed and feel like you wasted time, dont't read it. However if you want to be disappointed, this is the series for you.

Its a waste of time. Don't read it. I don't know why they started translating it again. There are much better series with far less disappointment,

As it has been said. The beginning is incredibly strong. But it rapidly deteriorates, veering more and more until the doesn't seem to be any logical reason for decisions other than the author thinking it would be cool. Their was a lot of potential that unforunately was thrown away for a much more boaring plot.
