During his difficult struggle, he meets many friends and discovers his true potential. But there are dangers lurking around every turn. Will Baam be able to find his friend Rachel? What’s to become of Baam during his adventure? It all begins in the Tower of God.

I remember back before quarantine hit, my friends were SUPER HYPED up for the webtoon, Tower of God, turning into an anime (and being the first webtoon to do so).

They were begging me to read the webtoon and every time I’d tell them later (but in reality, I didn’t really feel like itπŸ˜…). Eventually I just decided to try out the first chapter and……….let’s just say that the art was………not exactly appealing.

Of course, the author was still 100000x better than I could ever be, but I just couldn’t get into the story. From there, I just decided to wait for the anime to come out and see how that went, then decide whether or not to continue on with the webtoon.

Thank goodness I went with that plan because season 1 of the anime ended with a HUGE CLIFFHANGER I just NEEDED to know what happened after. I couldn’t stand to wait a year for season 2 without getting spoiled and so I read the webtoon from where the anime left of. And omg…….



And I got so OBSESSED with Tower of God, that I read all 485 episodes within a week of starting. It was way too addicting.😫🀩

Unfortunately, I caught up to where the webtoon was at right when the author went on HIATUS.😭 It’s sad but I get that SIU needs a break. He’s been drawing/writing nonstop for years now. I hope he gets better.🀞

I’ve never been so glad to have my friends and watch anime. I never would’ve bothered reading Tower of God if it weren’t for that.

Oh! Also, the opening and ending were sung by Stray Kids (Kpop). I, myself, have never listened to Kpop but the OP & ED were amazing!!πŸ₯°

This was my first webtoon and has still remained being my favourite of all the other webtoons I’ve read so far. I seriously can’t think of a better webtoon then Tower of God.

The storyline is phenomenal, the characters honestly have one of the best character developments I’ve ever seen, the artwork’s improvement is just amazing, and last, but not least, the references are hilarious!!!πŸ˜‚

Remember though. Season 1’s artwork may be unbearable but I SWEAR IT GETS BETTER AFTER THAT. The style gradually improves a lot.

Warning: You may meet a character that you’ll absolutely DESPISE and want to kill so badly, that it just raises your blood pressure a lot (at least that’s what happened to me😀).

Here’s the first episode on Crunchyroll!
