Recently, I feel like these Isekai/Historical Manhwas are blooming! I personally really enjoy it and have been addicted for almost a year now. Who Made Me A Princess especially is a title that's extremely popular, I think.

For those of you who never really got into this genre, what do you think about it? Even for those who are into this genre, share your feelings! What's your favourite type/troupe?

Revenge? Avoiding the bad ending? Villainess? Saving your favourite character? Reincarnated as the side character? Hahah what's your favourite? 😉

I also really like those tags. But most are just going with the flow and creating some insipid stories with repetitive arks or completely plagiarising other stories .

For example I really enjoyed , Omniscient Reader's Viewpoint and its's novel (they isekai the world into different novels). But it's imposible not noticing how the author took the inspiration from many novels (that were popular ) and mashed it into something coherent ,with compelling characters (they end up having their own depth and acting independently form the MC and slowly diverging from their "novel" counterparts) .

But it's not always the case. Since manwhas and web novels cost way less to create than other media almost anyone can start a story .One sure way to find those is checking new manhwas on trending categories . I really feel terrible when ,after havin enjoyed a novel/ manhwa for 150+ chapters,I realise that it's getting worse because the author only thought "I can do a manhwa better than xxx " and didn't really plan a complete storyboard from the start or abruptly ending.

Well instead or ranting more about the bad side here are some I really enjoyed:
Release That Witch It's Chinese and based on a complete novel (i prefer the novel since many consider the witchs' outfits a blasphemy against the novel)
"The Beginning After The End" It's actually an English webcomic
[m] A Returner's Magic Should Be Special [/m] based on a complete novel.
MookHyang - Dark Lady Your typical murim hero isekaid

I really don't recommend anything Korean that has comedy as a main tag ,their humour tends to be pretty unsophisticated (otherwise those tags combined with comedy are great .I'm really a fan of comedy genre).

I also enjoyed some the combined with the revenge trope ,but if you stick to the "shounen"/manga side they usually go downhill after he start and the MC's tend to do pretty atrocious things just to keep the tension/readers or end up disregarding themselves and the plot to becomes MC vs nobles/demon king. To evade these I recommend reading ones that are complete or that give a twist to your typical settings (They tend to be more or less original for +10ch).

I have yet to read more leaning on the "shojo" side.
