Recently I have found that I am reading a lot of webtoons which most of the time I just classify as ‘manga’ although technically it is not a manga. I will do another post on the main differences between manga, manhwa, webtoons etc. That is for another time however. Below is a list of 5 action based webtoons that I have been enjoying these past few weeks.
If you were wondering, the back track in the video was from Bleach, – Destiny Awaits – Did you pick up on that? Hehe, but if you do not want to watch the video you can read the list as it is written below!
