I am so sad that this remarkable webtoon has not gotten the recognition that it absolutely deserves.   The story of Getting to Know Grace takes place in an alternate Victorian reality where people of the Sanrit culture have been enslaved and tortured for no other reason than their birth.  Andrew Grace, the only daughter of the Duke, has a Sanrit slave whom she has come to love named Herta.  The questions that this webtoon explore are: Does Herta love her back?  How far is Andrew willing to go to gain Herta's love?   The art is just absolutely outstounding.  I'm still new to webtoons, but I have been reading manga for a long time and believe me when I say that this was some of the most gorgeous and beautiful artwork I've ever seen.  It perfectly aligns with the overall tone of the webtoon, as well, and captures the Victorian spirit of the past.  I would love to have an art book of this webtoon, to be honest.  It really stands out from the rest, I can't recommend it enough.  The characters are the absolute driving force of this webtoon.  As is the case with most GL stories, the success depends upon the development of the main characters as a whole and the development of their relationship.  Getting to Know Grace does not disappoint in either of these areas.  If I had one critique, it would be that there are a few instances where characters commit certain crimes that I find difficult to reconcile with their personalities, although it is well explained as to why those crimes were committed.   My personal enjoyment was high, high, high!  I binged this as soon as I figured out how to get ink on Tapas, which is where I read it.  I predict I will re-read this multiple times in the future.  I would love to see a season two, but it seems like the writer and illustrator were pretty set on the last chapter being the end.   Overall, this is an inch away from being a masterpiece.  This is dark, it's sad and there is quite a lot of trauma and abuse (trigger warning for those of you who are uncomfortable with that), but it's also a unique take on the GL genre as a whole.  I would recommend this to GL fans, first and foremost, but also to anyone who is interested in psychological drama as well.
