W–Two Worlds: Episode 6
by | August 4, 2016 | 723 Comments
I feel like I’m still recovering from yesterday’s episode. The show seems like it’s recovering too, because we’re a little lighter on the nonstop thriller-suspense-WTF-OMG today, and we spend a little time focusing on our heroine and her relationships.

I feel like there are no rules in this drama, which is terrifying and thrilling all at once. Is this the story of a hero, or a monster? Is this drama about creating your own happy ending, or is it about discovering that real life has no such thing as neat narrative arcs, or meaning,... More »

It’s another fun episode of inter-dimensional hijinks, with even more embarrassment than last time. Apparently no one taught our heroine the concept of conflict escalation, because if every time you wanted to leave the manhwa world, you had to top the last exit you made… well, it leaves her with some pretty interesting (not to...
