15. Unordinary by uru-chan

  • Genre: Action, Romance, Fantasy, High School Life

Nobody paid much attention to John – just a normal teenager at a high school where the social elite happen to possess unthinkable powers and abilities. But John’s got a secret past that threatens to bring down the school’s whole social order – and much more. Fulfilling his destiny won’t be easy though, because there are battles, frenemies and deadly conspiracies around every corner.

In all honesty, this webtoon is a hit or miss with some. The story is good, but it can get a little dull. I personally enjoy this webtoon because it has a superhero feel but with a dark twist. The characters are interesting and the relationship they have with one another is intriguing. However, I feel like the story is a bit juvenile for some readers. This a webtoon I started because the art and the summary drew me in.

Daniel is an unattractive loner who wakes up in a different body. Now tall, handsome, and cooler than ever in his new form, Daniel aims to achieve everything he couldn't before. How far will he go to keep his body... and his secrets?

Now this is an underrated webtoon in my opinion! This webtoon is judged by the art and can be a turn off for some people since it is different. However, the story is fantastic!! The character development is great, and the art only gets better. This webtoon has a lot of material that needs to be unraveled. Take a chance and read this webtoon. Viewer discretion is advised!!

Ok, so here we go. This webtoon pisses me off to the max! The main female character is a strong, independent woman who is married to an incompetent cheating bastard. Although this webtoon angers me I can't help but keep reading it. The main characters are well developed, and the art is beautiful. You can't help want to know what happens next.
