We’re out of time and out of cliffhanger exits, and the final chapter of our story is hurtling towards that final frame. Will our hero find a way to escape life as a manhwa hero, or die trying to change his fate? Will two worlds implode, or will our brains implode first? And what really... More »

W–Two Worlds: Episode 15

It’s the beginning of the end, for W the manhwa and the show, and I’m suddenly starting to get very nervous about how our characters are going to write themselves out of this labyrinth of a parallel universe filled with narrative booby-traps. Half of me is dying with curiosity to know how it all ends,... More »

Let’s be honest—on a good day, Dad makes my blood boil for the string of terrible decisions he’s made and the effect that’s had on his daughter’s life. He’s weak-willed and pathetic, and pretty much the source of all my frustrations when it comes to our hero’s pain. But when two adversaries stand to lose... More »

I hope you were really in the mood to have your heart served to you on a platter today, because that’s pretty much the only thing on the menu. You can order it bloody, filleted, or burnt to a crisp. Because who needs a heart anyway? It just gets in the way of things, like... More »

Okay, this is it. I feel like I’ve been waiting all series long for this moment right here. It’s time to face our enemies (faces optional) and find out what everyone’s made of. I’m so excited, you guys! Will our hero learn from his past mistakes and stop being a pawn in someone else’s game?... More »

The earlier episodes twisted my brain, but this week’s episodes really twist my heart. The romance went from sweet to genuinely moving in the latest story arc, and I’m even starting to think that Fate may not be so cruel after all. Though that’s always what she wants you to think just before pulling the... More »

I don’t think this episode will blow anyone’s brain to smithereens, but I guess that’s a good thing? If you happen to enjoy the heroine’s adorable antics as she navigates her way through the manhwa world, though, it’ll be a fun hour. And by fun I mean filled with crimes and misdemeanors, because apparently our... More »

Maybe up is down, and down is up. And I could’ve sworn that yesterday happened already, but now I’m not so sure. I didn’t used to think those rules of the universe were arbitrary, but who’s to say anymore? I guess if this were any other drama, I might say there were new twists in... More »

I… was going to write words, and they were going to make sense, and they were going to be about W. Perhaps they would’ve been words about the love story, or about the fantasy-within-a-fantasy wish-fulfillment of this heightened world, or about my feelings, because I have a lot of them while watching this show. But... More »
