It’s the month of October and you know what that means… 5 Freaky Faves is back! In case you’re new around here or don’t remember 5 Freaky Faves from previous Octobers, 5 Freaky Faves is a spooky take on 5 Fandom Friday, which has been retired for the most part by the original creators, but I still love making these lists so I am carrying on the spirit with my own version of 5FF. Now let’s get to the five horror Webtoons that will keep you up at night!
Everything is Fine
Everything is fine in this Webtoon Original by Mike Birchall. Meet Sam and Maggie, just a normal couple living in a normal neighborhood with their normal dog and their normal neighbors where everything is… normal. Or so it seems. This suburb has some strange things happening… but our characters continue to say that “Everything is Fine.” Behind the cute art style and animal head characters, something unnerving lurks in the panels of this Webtoon. Maggie isn’t just the loving housewife, and begins to look into things that she probably shouldn’t. I have a funny feeling that everything is NOT fine…
Webtoons are a big fave here on the blog. They kept me going through the pandemic and have become a part of my nightly routine. I even count them as a part of my weekly reading goal. I saw Annie over at Evening Tea Musings pose the question: what Webtoon stories would work well in anime? We’re seeing Webtoons get live action adaptations like Love Alarm (Netflix), Sweet Home (Netflix), True Beauty(Rakutan Viki), and others! So why not anime too?! Today I am sharing my top 5 action Webtoons that need their own anime. Netflix? Are you getting this?
I’ve mentionedLost in Translation by Jjolee before back in one of my K-Confessions posts about a few of my favorite K-Pop and K-Drama Webtoons. Lost in Translation is a story about a K-Pop band called Mayhem with a heavy focus on Wyld, the band’s “Bad Boy.” Now that we’re partway into season 2, I thought it’d be a good time to share my thoughts on this Webtoon, Jjolee’s incredible expansion and immersion of Mayhem’s universe using social media and YouTube, and the amazing community that Jjolee has built around her original Webtoon.
I just can’t get enough of Webtoons. They have consumed my nightly reading (and yes, they count towards my weekly reading goal)! While I love so many Webtoon comics, there are a select few that I fast pass every week. One of my weekly fast pass Webtoons is theCursed Princess Club by Lambcat, a cute comic about Princess Gwendolyn who doesn’t quite fit the aesthetic of a typical princess.
Since we’re still in February, today’s Saturday Suggestion is still counting towards the month of love even though Valentine’s day has passed. I thought the blog was due for some more Webtoon suggestions! This time, we’re diving into romance and drama to fit with this month’s theme. I picked five Webtoons that I am currently enjoying, and I hope you will give them a try and offer the creator your support by following their Webtoon and liking the chapters! Without further ado, let’s get to my current top five romance Webtoons!
