My Favorite Webtoon Recommendations by Genre: Fantasy 

Fantasy is one of the most prevalent genres in Webtoon, which means there is a large variety of favorites to choose from. It’s very versatile, and most of the fantasies are unique and much more different than other forms of media. Again, anything that makes it to the top three are basically equal in my love for them; the rankings can change quickly, but those here are equal favorites for me. 

10. My Dear Cold Blooded King, Lifelight, ongoing:

Link: My Dear Cold Blooded King

I really am enjoying this, so why is it so low? Maybe it’s because I didn’t read it back in Discover…unlike other entries. However, I really am liking this! It focuses on Mei Kihara, a simple merchant who becomes mixed in with the fearsome Blood King, a ruler who is an enigma. This is a romantic mystery; we are as confused as to the Blood King’s identity as Kihara is. If you want beautiful art, dynamic characters, and plenty of intrigue, this is a must read.

9. Gepetto, Jewon Yeon, ongoing:

Link: Gepetto

As the science fiction department is severely lacking, Gepetto found itself here! Anyway, this is a unique take on a dystopia; neither side is 100% right, and is kind of philosophical. It follows Colodi Carlo through his ten year journey with humans and androids, and trying to find a legacy a scientist named Gepetto left behind. This story may be  really slow and not have the best dialogue, but give this time. It is worth it. It touches on what it means to be human in more ways than one.  

8. The Strange Tales of Oscar Zahn, Tri Vuong, ongoing:

Link: The Strange Tales of Oscar Zahn

This is a soft, charming, and surprisingly humorous Webtoon. It chronicles the story of the British skeleton paranormal investigator Oscar Zahn and his adventures with spirits, spooks, and other beings. It’s funny and surprisingly moving, and incredibly out of the box. So far, there have been three big “arcs”, each one different than the last. There are plenty of twists and turns, and yet there is always something heartwarming or sweet in each story. 

7. Dice, Hyunseok Yun, ongoing: 

Link: Dice


Competitiveness is ramped up to a 100 in this one. Dice are things that can help people improve in a specific area…as long as they complete a quest.  It follows Dongtae as he journeys to gain more dice, eventually learning shocking truths about his schoolmates and the true nature of the dice in question. Dice takes a look at human nature; every character seems normal at first, until their greed and desire for more and more leads them to do shocking quests, showing just how twisted they are under the surface. 

6. Lumine, Emma Krogell, ongoing: 

Link: Lumine


A newly featured Webtoon, why is this so high on my list? Maybe because I DID read it in Discover…Lumine follows the titular Lumine, a young werewolf who meets a boy named Kody, and their adventures. Is is surprisingly adorable and fun..Until a certain point. Then it becomes different.

5. Rise From Ashes, Madeleine Rosca, ongoing:

Link: Rise from Ashes

Rise From Ashes is a unique ghost story. It follows our lead character as events happen that make her cross paths with The Red Crows, an organization that keeps ghosts in check. Before her very eyes, she witnesses the birth of a revolution from the oppressed ghosts, and this chronicles her story during this time. It’s a unique take on ghosts and haunted houses, and it’s steampunk! It’s also got beautiful art and an amazing soundtrack.

4. :Rebirth, 69erocento, ongoing:

This is my current favorite fantasy on Discover. Why? It’s a unique spin on a zombie apocalypse, and focuses on time travel and relationships between characters. The story behind the apocalypse is also interesting and different, and very mysterious. The time travel is also handled well, and questions paradoxes and just how much one can change the past.  Each character is more complex than they seem as well.

3. Nightmare Factory, Snailords, ongoing:

Link: Nightmare Factory

If you started this comic and dropped it after the first two episodes….get back to it. And read until AT LEAST chapter 12. The story and the writing improve so much, it’s unbelievable. Trust me, I dropped it the first time I read it, and now this is a favorite of mine. It starts off with Emai, an insomniac writer, getting stuck in The Nightmare Exchange, which is run by the Game Master known as Phirre Lotus. She is able to strike a deal, and ends up working with Kreyul, who is from another dimension. But it becomes way more than that…way more. The Exchange is a small part of it, and this gets so interesting.

2. Hooky, Miriam Bonastre Tur, ongoing:

Link: Hooky

Don’t let the cute art fool you! This has so many plot twists, it makes my head spin. This is about Dani and Dorian Wytte, two witch children who miss the bus to school. Their adventure starts off cute and fun, but after a certain prophecy, takes a dark turn. Each character is amazingly written and deeper than they appear, even the antagonists. Everyone has different motivations and reasons for doing what they do. It also has themes of discrimination, fear, bravery, friendship, and love.

1. unOrdinary, uru-chan, ingoing: 

Link: unOrdinary


Art link: Freedom Vs. Order

This may not have much of a plot at first, but around episode 19, it does. It involves John, a “cripple” who, unlike everyone else, doesn’t appear to have an “ability”, which makes him a target for bullying and discrimination. However, he does have a friend named Sera, who is one of the most powerful people in his school. It seems all fun and games at first, but as his past comes into question, many people begin to investigate him. This is surprisingly mysterious and intriguing, and is certainly worthy of its popularity. 

Next genre recommendation is comedy!

    1. Actually, Webtoons are comics that you can read, mostly translated manhwa and self published comics. They are so amazing, and I’m coming out with more genre recommendations soon. If you’re interested in more, I suggest you look at my Webtoons List and Articles series, and look at my drama genre recommendations. And good luck on your exams!
