Manhua, Manhwa anyone?
>>
Manga
>MC is a normal high schooler in an average high school that suddenly gets the affections of several females

Manhwa
>MC is a normal high schooler in a shitty high school filled with bullies and asshats that suddenly gets the affections of several women who will NTR him in some way

Manhua
>MC is a normal high schooler in an average high school that suddenly gets the affections of several females after slaughtering his enemies

Koreans and Chinese are fucking animals. The Japanese do a much better job of being civilized but their weird, masochistic school and work cultures have been hurting them.
>>
>>160925036
>those western pop culture references

just always feels out of place
>>
>>160925830
Yeah, its kinda weird: There are virtually no references to western in japanese Manga but a fair bit in Manhwa.
>>
>>160925496
surprisingly accurate.
>>
>>160925955
South Korea is a western reference itself
>>
>>160925955
I understand Manhwa a bit because it has been more heavily influenced by America than Japan (right down to being majorly Christian).

It's more weird being common in Manhua
>>
>>160925955
Cause the gooks love the foreign cock, moreso than the Japs. Have you ever been to a multinational campus? They're everywhere. They fucking love everything about the west and I can't understand why.
>>
>>160926035
Oof
>>
>>160925036
A lot of the manhwas I've seen have gorgeous detail but a lot of the characters are strangely expressionless, kinda like beautiful dolls. Maybe it's the genre tho
>>
>>160926093
Japan = isolated for years, island
China = lots of relations because not isolated geographically since Marco Polo

>They fucking love everything about the west and I can't understand why.
Because South Korea is Hell
Think of everything that makes Japan shitty and crank it up to 11

It's really only the current generation that cares about this stuff. I've spoken with my East Asian Studies librarian and she was a bit reserved about the whole influx, I got the feeling that she wasn't really okay with it.
Plus the things that I've noticed (I might be wrong on this, I don't read that much) is that they don't seem to care about their own culture very much, to the point where it's not often that you see anything about Joseon or whatever unless it's a TV drama. And even then it's littered with failed romance plots that ended up being popularized by fucking awful Mexican soaps.
It's a mixed bag, but I feel both angry and sad for Korea in general, they're losing something important and they don't seem to care very much for it.
>>
Why are manhwa always so damn edgy?

They're basically the plots of the "write an anime plot" threads where people believe originality and good writing is "make the MC suffer as much as possible in a world that wishes to rape him"
>>
>>160926093
>and I can't understand why.
Historical reasons. Korea was annexed by Japan from 1910 till the end of WWII when it was divided into northern area, protected by the Soviets, and the southern, protected by the US and Europe.

The two areas never managed to find common ground and form a single government but instead formed North and South Korea that are hostile towards one another and went through the brutal Korean war 3 years after forming, in 1950, when the Northern communists tried to take over South Korea, which was heavily assisted in the war by western military power, especially the US troops.

So to South Korea it can easily seem that without the westerners the entire country would be either under Japanese or Communist rule, and whose continued support is very important. Embracing the western culture is a signal of a desire of alliance, I guess

>>
Why do manhwa and manhua look exactly like manga?
>>
>>160926512
same reason why a lot of current cartoons look like anime
>>
Part of manhwa's deal is that all Japanese media, including manga, was banned in Korea until the late 90s/early 2000s. Korea has also been the go-to place for outsourced animation since Hanna Barbera, making their national cartooning style a bit of a clusterfuck.
>>
>>160926498
unlike Japan whose approach is "only be western enough to satisfy them"
>>
>>160926444
Korea wiped out their own important tradition like Chinese character and Buddhism. I have no idea why they hate their long and interesting history.
>>
>>160926580
why such ban in democratic country?
>>
>>160926644
because Japan colonized and raped them for years
>>
>>160926512
The style has evolved.

Previous Manhua had kinda a more "realistic" art-style. Just the more recent ones began adopting the "moe-style" completely.
>>
>>160926444
This anon >>160926498 basically wrote what i was about to say.
But i'd like to point out S Korea had little to no time to mature into a modern state in it's right: It went from a feudal Kingdom to a Japanese Puppet to a US Puppet.
>>
>>160926644
Korea got democratic only recently. They had militaristic government until 90s.
>>
>>160926719
>>160926498
Fair enough then, I'm not very much into the subject because I study Japan, but it's still interesting to find out the cause for that.
>>
>>160925496
Manhwa web comic

I like Blood and Steel.

Okay. But its kinda like studying french and knowing nothing about Germany...

>>160926444

They never had a real culture so It's K
>>
>>160927715
I sort of agree, but I'm slightly biased on the matter, I appreciate niche parts of Japanese culture over stuff like politics and history. So I never really found any reason to expand into Korea or China. The languages are fascinating though and if I ever get to learning them then it goes without saying that I'll look into the culture as well.
I realize the previous post was sort of dismissing of Korea, that wasn't my intention. It's just not as high on the list currently.
>>
>>160925496
holy fuck spot on with the manwha, and i can never remember the names either since they sound so retarded.
>>
>>160927845
No problem, i get where you are coming from
I got interested in Korean history because of the myriad ways japan has fucked with them over the years. There are many animosities between countries that are stupid from a distance, but here Korea is completely in the right to dislike Japan

Why can't koreans and chinks draw tits? They draw the most egregious football boobjobs known to man
>>
>>160926702
Chinese make good action series but I wish they stop attempting moe.

It's like watching a serial killer with an uguu anime girl mask.
>>
>>160926611
Yeah. Japan was doing great for itself until it got bombed into submission, and it's never really needed to rely on western allies in order to remain autonomous - quite the opposite, they lost a lot of their autonomy because of the west. The US military bases were put there more to control and monitor than to protect them post-US occupation, in addition to their own military being banned by the west in order to eliminate their capability for warfare.

Korea, however, was brought out from under Japan's rule only as a result of the westerners defeating the nips, and S Korea formed and defended itself against a communist conquering attempt again under the continued protection of the west, namely US troops. The US military continues to have bases in South Korea, but they were never there to keep the S Koreans in check, but to protect their independence and boost their own army against the threat of N Korea.

Big difference

>>160926719
>little to no time to mature into a modern state in it's right
Yeah, this is an important point
>>
>>160928679
even after the nukes they still hold a "just western enough for them to leave us alone" mentality
>>
>>160928455
[non-webcomic] examples?
>>
>>160928766
legend of maian is the only one that springs to mind, don't have a lot of examples off the top of my head because I reflexively avoid them.
>>
>>160927088
Good taste.
>>
>>160928910
Im Dal is Im Dal

like basing manga on Kubo or comics on Rob Liefeld
>>
>>160929033
It's not the only example I've seen, it's just the only one whose name I remember.
>>
>>160928749
Yes, that's what I said

I mean it's obvious, why on earth would bombing someone into surrendering and then forcibly occupying their country make them like you so much they want to imitate you and abandon their own identity?
>>
Sweet Guy was lovely.
>>
>>160929314
It was a bit slow for my taste, and too many sex scenes.

Are you fucking kidding me
>>
>>160929567
Not to say that the sex scenes themselves weren't good, but they seemed so 'put in'
In the later part it felt like they put them in to fill a quota, especially when it wasn't the MC but the evil scientist or evil CEO.

On an unrelated note, what is a Manhwa Artist called? I think its not not Manhwaka
>>
I'm surprised this thread hasn't devolved into >gookshit already
>>
>>160929771
Who cares? Were you seriously reading it for the story? It's a good fap and that's it man. Fuck is wrong with you?
>>
>>160930042
I did have a few good faps to it yeah.
But its at this weir cross-road where its to much porn for a solid story or to much story for a porn.
>>
>>160928910

there are ten million jap artists that draw tits indistinguishable from those

balloons are a lot easier than realistic anatomy
>>
>>160930456
Balloons I can accept, it's the cones that bother me.

I want as109 to start a lewd Manhua series.
