Actually really good, despite what ppl say

GOH is actually really good, it gets WAY to much hate for its genre,'s a shounen, what were you expecting, Death Note(Which is good btw). I mean, this manga/webtoon gets WAY to much hate, some idiot actually compared it to PRISON SCHOOL(Which is a lol btw, check it out)...IT MANGA THAT WAS MADE FOR COMEDY. That's like comparing apples to grapefruit,GRAPEFRUIT. So yeah, I'm currently on Session 4, ya know, up-to-date.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
*Pacing is awkward.

*Alot of characters DIE before you can even get to like or hate them

*The MC, Jin Mo-Ri always, shows up at the last minute, AFTER everyone is beaten to a pulp,MENTALLY and PHYSICALLY.

*WAY to much action(which is also a good thing)

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
*ALOT of action(which is also a bad thing)

*Characters are lovable and quite simple.

*Story is good, quite simple to follow.

*Art is great.

*Uses alot of religions and mixes them into one

*Quite funny

Overall, God of Highschool is a great read, but it suffers from the problems(or even solutions) of both Dragon Ball and Bleach. It has the pacing and action of both Bleach and Dragon Ball. Plot holes? What plot holes? Name five.

But yeah, the manga/webtoon is Shounen Jump materiel, if this was a Japanese manga published by Shounen Jump, it would be the next BIG thing.

Giant Train Wreck Of Sh*t   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

I'll keep this short, so anyone who is about to start this can get my two cents.

This manhwa starts off good, and entertaining. A concept of a bunch of people having a martial arts competition with unique skills. If the author kept the main focus on the tournament throughout the series, it would have been average. Although somewhere along the way, the author decided to take a sh*t and start bringing it to life. Just because the sh*t becomes alive, doesn't mean it still isn't sh*t. It is just living sh*t.

There is no real growth in how the characters get stronger. They just get stronger... or something...? If you hate power curve inconsistencies then this series is not compatible with you at all. Even if you can forgive power curves and plot holes, and a giant train wreck series... Still don't read this.

tl;dr - Fairly interesting at the beginning, then it just falls in to the pits of despair.

In the beginning this manhwa was great. One of the funniest and most unique stories I've read. Loved the crazy hijinks they got into, loved the totally random art changes, loved the absurd 4th wall breaking moments, loved the hilarious spoofs that poked fun at other popular manga and itself. Couldn't get enough. I was laughing myself silly.

But then for some reason it just stops. That's right it just stops. All the humour from before totally vanishes. Character development becomes non existent. It was as if the author sudden had a stroke and developed a totally different personality. From then on the series was just fight after fight after fight. New characters come in and just start fighting. Some die, some don't. But noone cares. There's zero explanation, no build up, I'm not even sure what the plot was anymore. All 'pizzazz' from before goes down the drain and the series turns from a great comedy to one of the most boring and generic shonein series you've ever read. I was so disappointed in this series.

For readers who want to try a comedy that keeps been funny throughout and doesn't let them down, try reading Prison school. Now that's what this series should of been like if the author didn't get dropped on his head.

Unpredictable, this manhwa is very good. To all the people saying it fails plotwise and the characters are bland i just say two words: Dragon Ball. And it still rocks this day and age. Start appreciating the things you have in front, not badmouthing its weaker aspects.

I like this manga. It isn't something I would usually read and have tried to begin countless times but was hooked and now I love it. I think it has a plot, though confusing as all hell sometimes, but lets face it, I think the fighting and how they portray it is new (to me at least) and for that I still enjoy it. I love the art and the characters. What else is there to love about a manga?

Chinese Wuxia & Journey to the West in Modern Seoul   
Rating: N/A

If you have ever watched Chinese martial arts or wuxia dramas, you'll understand where the fighting styles and the special abilities are coming from. Fighting with cards? No problem. God power coming out of no where? It's daily life for youxia. Mysterious sects in head shroud? It's everywhere in Jianghu.

In the beginning, even with the wuxia influence, the webcomic still makes sense. But as more chapter comes out, things just pop out of no where so randomly. I totally LOLed when the Monkey King, Sun Wukong, from Journey to the West, complete with his headpiece and pole, which btw came out from the moon, showed up. It's not that having those elements are bad, it's having them with all the other things from different worlds. Now we have wuxia x journey to the west worlds fused into one.

This webcomic has progressed to a stage where it's so ridiculous it's hilarious. Oh well, at least you'll laugh. But I wouldn't say Season 3 is as bad as some other reviewers say. I'll say it still has a plot, even though elusive. If you're not familiar with Journey to the West, you'll be confused with all the monkeys, gourd, and cow king stuff. Since I'm very familiar with it and wuxia, so it's just fun for me. Watch Journey to the West if you want to understand season 3 better. If you like GOH with all of its eclectic glories, check out some Chinese wuxia dramas. Start with Jin Yong's, and definitely Journey to the West.

Going downhill

The only thing that's gets better over time, is the artwork (In the beginning it was really bad). Outside of it, everything, i mean, everything gets way worse.

The story (if it had one), loses purpose after the High school Tournament. The author tries to keeps things fresh, throwing many new info and story elements at the reader, but the reader is overwhelmed with the amount of bloat this Manhwa becomes.

The characters are just as bad, they have no ambition, no goal, they just keeping getting stronger just for the sake of the (poor) story.

My enjoyment of the series was directly proportional to the number chapters this series had. The more it had, the less i enjoyed.

Overall i give this Manhwa a 4. Below Average. The author does indeed develop himself over the years, but unfortunately, it was just his artwork. Outside of it, you have a really bland battle Manhwa that doesn't try to differentiate itself from the many others out there, it just follows the recipe and hopes for the best.

If this wasn't a webcomic, and was serialized in a Japanese Magazine (Like Shounen Jump, Shuukan Shounen or Shounen Sunday). It would be cancelled ages ago.

I started by giving this manhwa an 8 considering the shounen genre and great art. Unfortunately, as the manhwa continues the story deteriorates. The plot jumps all over the place and it's disorientating to readers who have to wait for it to update from week to week. The characters are likable, but rather bland and generic. Although they have back stories, it feels rather cliche. A fault I find within the manhwa is that the reasons for some of the fights are incoherent and questionable at times...It draws away from the immersion of the story.
As I grew up with Journey to the West and Chinese culture, I don't think the elements within the manhwa are all that weird. :/

Wasted Potential

The concept behind the series in interesting and the art is good but there are a lot of pitfalls with the series. The main character is strong and all, but seems to have an IQ of about 10 which I find irritating. Also, the skills of the characters have just become so ridiculous and outlandish. The author is obviously pulling this stuff out of their *** in an attempt to escalate the plot. And has just become so random. After the high school fight the story sort of lost all purpose.

Another slight peeve of mine, is the anti- US sentiment. Which I wouldn't really mind if it weren't so ridiculous.

The US helping North Korea?! That plot line is just too dumb.

Honestly, this starts out really well. It seem in the beginning to have a potentially great plot and characters. But as you keeping on reading the chapters that amazingness you first saw in the beginning begins to disappear and the next thing, you know, your just reading this to read. It seems like the story is not even a coherent story anymore, but really just a bunch of really well drawn fight scenes and some cheeses parts where there is some moral lesson that appear out of no where. All in all read at your on risk. I'll keep reading till I can't take it anymore, so...
