Was Good but now Average   
Rating: 5.0 / 10.0

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?)

In love with this series....

This is the first manga in my life that has made me check for an update every single week for more than a couple months... even shingeki no kyojin (attack on titan) and One piece weren't able to hold me for longer than that. I've read 300+ series of every genre that's out there, and this one is the only one I am addicted to. It's been 2 years, I still check for updates EVERY SINGLE WEEK.

Anyways, people bash on this series saying it's a ripoff of HunterxHunter. But, really it's not. Just because two series hold similar premises of clearing "levels" doesn't mean the newer series is any less engaging than the former. In fact, I read the entire HunterxHunter series, and it gave me a headache... (The only reason i kept reading was because of Killua...)

While Tower of God exhibits some scenes that have already been depicted, the series' main enticement is the hidden motives and lives behind every character, no matter how "generic."

Here, every character has a story to tell, and are risking their own lives to climb to the top and be granted what they desire. The author managed to make me fall utterly in love with two batches of characters for season 1 and season 2. There are still a ton of mysteries left to be solved, and the main character Baam's true identity remains hidden to us all.

The cunning hero, Koon, seems to be the typical intelligent badass... but he's more than just that. He has many problems he's dealing with that are subtly hinted at throughout the manga. His special way of caring for people, for example, is just heartbreaking. And the main character? He may be cliche, but he really does raise some good questions about life and humanity. Plus, he actually takes a pretty big twist after season I, and is forced into becoming a villain. That is a pretty novel idea.


p.s. to the guy that called this manga a "video game version of guy saving damsel in distress" you can't be more wrong. In fact, if you stayed for a bit longer you will see that if anything that damsel is the opposite of a damsel..... she is a absolute B****8 ..... (cough cough) forgive me for the cursing but she is not a DAMSEL IN DISTRESS in any way or form.

Oh and it's not even the main character I'm the most obsessed with. It's the 2nd main character Koon. He's is SUCH a badass. He's manipulative, calculative, cold-blooded, but still somehow relatable. I LOVE KOON AGNIS AGERO!!!

Oh, and Yuri? The girl who kicks Baam in the first couple chapters? She's so badass!!! She's like my heroine.

So please, give this manga a chance, but also cut it some slack. If you start the manga just scanning for absolute awesomeness, you'll be disappointed. This manga will only truly shine if you give it some time to let it digest.

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.

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.

Season 1 was really good, but with season 2 the storytelling dropped to the niveau of a mediocre fighting-shounen (though with less fighting). In the recent arc the motivations for the newly introduced characters got so utter stupid it's nearly on a bleach level (well not that bad^^).

However, I read the author draws with a damaged hand since a while and needs an operation, so maybe he rushes it at the moment to get over with the arc so he can take his hiatus.

Still 6/10 at the moment since the first season was awesome.

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.

This manhwa is by no means a masterpiece. The art is only mediocre and the characters are rather shallow. There isn't a lot of back story given to the characters and many of the side characters appear to only exist for the sake of fulfilling a stereotype. The redeeming point of the manhwa is the plot, which is new and refreshing.The concept of a tower that grants power to whoever can reach the top is an interesting idea, and finding out what is at the top of the tower is the draw of the manga. The main character, while cliche, has his own set of problems that make the plot even more interesting. Therefore, TOG is good but not great.
