The World After the Fall

Faced with imminent defeat and certain death, would you choose to run – or continue to fight for a doomed world? When mysterious towers appear across the world, summoning monsters that prey on mankind, this is the choice presented to the Tower Walkers – adventurers with special powers to fight the monsters. On the brink of death, they can choose to use a “regression stone” to return to the past for a second chance, though this decision places them in a separate timeline forever. Stubborn Tower Walker Jaehwan rejects this choice, choosing to fight for the original timeline, and learning shocking secrets about the Tower along the way.

The World After The Fall[Review] By Undead Potato Story: The story is a complete new take/approach on the fantasy-tower "Awakaners" theme genre. It possesses indivisuality and uniqueness and the idea and concept is completely original, and it branches off multiple genres but still has originality in the series. The story follows a devastated world, and in the single Tower where life exists, the MC has been battling the tower for years. The story invokes the readers emotions, and this series can mean a whole new branch of genres. The artist and the authors are geniuses for creating a whole new world of fantasy, and the series does have many creatures who are also completely original, however influenced from mythology. Art: The art is extremely well done, the shading, colors, tones and shades are done almost perfectly. The shading uses multiple tones of gray and black, and the highlights and bends are enhanced by the unique and perfectly chosen colors. The character designs closely follow human anatomy, and there is extensive detail in every frame. Every color uses many variants of it to support the original color, and the linework of this series is drawn to utmost perfection. Charaters: All of the characters, particularly the MC and those close to him/villains, have their background stories greatly explored and are supported by multiple panels that also enhance the characters' personalities. The characters personalities are also shown through every descision they make, and it severely compliments the series as a whole. Overall: This series is a definite must-read for its amazing originality; the story, branching off multiple genres were fused into one, and with the help of the author, created a whole new fantasy world of beauty and horror. I believe this series deserves the highest praise for its amazing idea-as well as the execution of it; the art was top tier and is something you ca expect to be on the leaderboards. Thanks for reading my review!


It's possibly a bit too early for me to review this manhwa, considering that the first eight chapters were just an introduction and it's only recently actually got off the ground. But as with all my reviews, I intend to update it once it eventually concludes. Anyway, so far I do think that it has potential. Some of its initial themes feel like a direct repudiation of several common tropes within this genre, in a way that I've appreciated and found fresh. Specifically, it has the main character (Jaehwan) and a few others repeatedly refuse to go back in time while retaining knowledge from the future when given the opportunity. And also the way Jaehwan doesn't just try to work within the system (as I've seen in several stories), but instead bucks the system itself. When told "these are your options for how to leave," fe rejects all those presented options and instead finds a way to create a new option for femself. Jaehwan is overpowered, but it feels a bit more like it's the result of diligence and perseverance rather than just optimizing the outcomes while operating within the system's rules. I've liked the interactions in Chaos so far and I think the characters have potential to be pretty strong. I don't care for the sideways artwork. The close-up shots to faces and sword slices can also make things feel claustrophobic and slightly difficult to follow while scrolling down. I also must admit that I feel some confusion as to how the different dimensions and sub-dimensions connect together, but I get the gist of things. I'm also not sure exactly what Jaehwan's long-term goal is, so that could potentially turn into a weak point of the series if it's not handled well. And Jaehwan is okay as a character, but not hugely memorable or captivating, so that could also potentially turn into a weak point. The bottom line though is that the series is currently leaning more positive than negative for me and it's possible that after it builds up more steam I'll enjoy it even more (though I guess it's also possible that it could go the other way).
