The games until now had been for climbing the tower, or hard battles for survival. The Gongbang tournament will be a more casual one. The catch is, it is a survival game. The concept is of a game you can play with your friends? Of course, you can die if you make mistakes... Whenever I make up a new game, I think to myself that it isn’t something enjoyable. But trying new things is what is fun. People's reactions to change are scary, but at the same time, I want to see them. It was hard to get some data for the gun.. If someone has a good replica gun, please contact me. Hatsu is carrying Laure. He is so long, so he needs to be carried upside down. He seems to come up with special ways of Shinsoo control without all the blood flowing to his head or something, even I can’t know for sure. Please look forward to next week's chapter, when the game begins. And have a good week^^ Thank you~ Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 58 It's April Fools, so I was about to say that I was taking a break. However, I was afraid that no one would believe me then when I actually go on breaks later, so I couldn't do it. Well… As I work, I think of Part 1 a lot of these days. If you think about it in terms of storyline, Part 2 has a lot of battle manhwa elements portraying Viole as an uber character, So it isn’t difficult to get good ratings, and not very difficult to create the plot either. But I remember grueling over writing the plot for Part 1, and every day was like hell (...) But that hell has returned. Koon and Leesoo have returned hand-in-hand. Amen. I feel like I'm back in Part 1, haha. It's difficult, but I guess I could say the nervousness is good for me... I kind of feel that if I finish this arc successfully, I'll truly know what kind of manhwa I am meant to draw. Thinking that it'll be a good experience even if I fail slightly, I continue to draw. The story hasn't progressed much, so it'll be fine if you read it patiently. Haha. The weather's getting nicer, so have a nice weekend, and please look forward to next week. Thank you~ ps. Right now, Anak is equipped with Spear Bearer equipment. As for the spear she's holding, most E-Rank Regulars would find it difficult to hold, even with two hands. Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 59 A word of consolation to those of you who expected a battle in this chapter. Personally, I believe Tower of God is a work that goes Story>Game>Battle in order of importance. Well, that doesn't mean I plan to be lacking in any of those, of course ^^; In terms of story, the earlier parts of the Workshop Battle is completely different from the later parts, so I think I'll move on once I'm done refining the relationships between the characters in the beginning. It seems that the main story will begin to develop once this game is over. I'm looking forward to the material, so I hope it turns out to be fun. One of the strongest enemies will make an appearance, too. Haha. I think I'll be taking a one-week break once this game is over. I think there's no choice because my wrist is in fairly bad shape, so even at this very moment I'm drawing with much difficulty... Once I've decided, I'll let you know then. Then please look forward to the next chapter, and have a nice week~ Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 60 Endorsi isn’t from one of the 10 Great Families by birth. But some of the Princesses who are, can be more powerful than Rankers, even when they are mere Regulars climbing the tower, thanks to having 10 Great Family + Zahard powers. A famous example would be Ha Yuri Zahard. (the Ha Family is famous for having physically strong bodies.) But Rankers tend to be stronger overall due to Experience + Contracts + Sinso0 fortification. The contracts, which form the largest difference between a Ranker and a Regular, will be explained later. Just know that Endorsi is exceptionally more powerful than other Regulars at the moment. I’m trying to advance the story in various ways, and it’s taking quite a lot of time. I’ll give it my best despite that. In this game, the gun is something that breaks the balance with its one shot. But nothing more than that. Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 61 Looks like Hatsu has brought a rose knife. (tCNotes: That's a running gag on the Korean Internet; these rose-patterned kitchen knives are said to be able to cut metal pipes) Hatsu has hardened his swords to the limit by reinforcing them with shinsoo, so contrary to what he said, a few things have changed. Haha. Ran vs. Anak is the 'messy match' amongs E-Rank Regulars. Although Ran is slightly older, the difference is not too great. Ran and Koon are from the same family, so they refer to each other by given name; it seems Ran just calls Koon AA. Although Koon is a little older than Ran, the difference is not noticeably great, either. The blog has been quiet these days, but I'm planning for an update in the setting section. It's not going to be related to this arc; I think I'll be adding info for FUG, and specifically the profiles of Slayers. Then have a nice week, I heard it's exam season for students, and I hope you prepare well. See you next week. Thank you ^^ Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 62 The prodigal Viole has returned. I considered dragging Anak and Ran's fight on longer... (It's fundamental for such a fight to take up two or more chapters in most sonyun manhwa.) However, as expected, I decided to stay loyal to the game rather than to the battle. On top of that, I kinda feel like keep forgetting the true style of my manhwa... The technique Ran used in this chapter can only be used in small and somewhat enclosed space due to its range and specificity. Of course, if used by a Ranker with excellent shinsoo management capabilties, it can summon natural disasters like hurricanes ^^;; That would require a Contract with the Guardian, so it seems Ran still has a long way to go haha. This chapter was somewhat short, but it will be like this for the next few weeks. After that, I'll be on break~ I'll be returning when I've improved my condition a bit. Although I've been recommended to get a wrist surgery, it seems I'll need a few more examinations before I get the full details ^^; I have a lot of things I need to do during the break, as well... But as expected, I want to finish this arc without any long breaks in between. Also, for those af you who're students, I hope you get great results on your exams, and I wish you a good week. Thank you ^^ Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 63 The events of this chapter were actually supposed to be included in the last chapter, but I wasn’t confident in my ability to handle all that work, so I divided it into two. Thanks to that, the plot progression seems to have slowed down. If this was the past me, I would have been determined to pull an all-nighter to finish it huhuh. Although you guys probably feel the same way, I get frustrated when my body doesn’t listen to me while I’m drawing. I’ve realized the importance of taking care of my body these days. I think I’ve gotten better recently after regularly visiting the hospital, I hope I can return to good shape soon ^^. Today was Children’s Day, and I hope you guys enjoyed it. It’s on Sunday, so I actually feel it may have lost its meaning keke. I hope you had a nice day. I’m planning to change the neighbour-exclusive materials on the blog to public view very soon. As for the slayer candidates profile, I’ll organize and post them over the break. Then, please enjoy this week, too. Please look forward to next week. Thank you ^^. PS. This game (arc) has about 2 chapters left. Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 64 Viole is fighting well alone against many opponents. Story-wise, it's inevitable, but the plot has been quite frustrating^^;; So I reduced the psychological presentation and emphasized the action side. When drawing scenes like this, the artist works with feelings similar to those of readers, so the drawing is actually more difficult haha. The length may seem shorter because there're so many battle scenes, but the length is actually not that short. The technique Reina, used by Verdi in this chapter, comes with a myriad of limits. Viole only fell to it because Leesoo's team went all-in on this plan. Also, this item has no effect on regulars above a certain level, and has no effect on Rankers at all. (As I mentioned before, Items have level requirements.) Now there's a bit of this game left, and the plot progression is about to move on as well, so please look forward to it, and see you next week! ~S.I.U Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 65 I don't know if you’ve noticed, but the progression of this game was focused on the meeting of Part 1 and Part 2 characters, as well as their relationships. On top of that, most of the important plot events are concentrated in the second half of this arc ^^; starting next chapter, the mood will shift significantly, as I've already told you. What I am focusing on the most as I draw the Workshop Battle is the utilizing of many characters. I have to express each character's charms as much as possible, instead of just as extra characters that are just there to make the protagonist look good, or cliché characters that die at the hands of the boss character. I want to draw them to be individual characters, each with their own history. That's why the next goal is to make the readers think "Fun" and "Get into character" no matter what character is the main character. Now, most of the relationships between characters have been established, and the real fun begins next chapter, but unfortunately, I have been forced to take a 2-week break. Although it's difficult for me to exactly say what’s with my wrist, more than anything it's to the point of greatly affecting my work, so I had no choice but to make this decision. Please understand TT TT. Although I will sadly be taking a 2-week break, I will keep you updated, and I will organize and post materials that I couldn't post before, so please don’t be disappointed. I will appreciated it if you wait a little longer for the next chapter. Thank You! P.S I also thank Naver Webtoons, who advised me to take 2-week break. SIU Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 66 I always feel this way after a break, but 2 weeks sure go by fast. Time flies like when you’re on vacation. First of all, after getting my wrist checked up in detail, it seems that it will be difficult to avoid a surgery, so I think I may have to take a long-term break after this arc. I hope I'll be able to complete this arc without overdoing it. ^^ Now all that's left to do is to organize the stories introduced since the beginning of Part 2 and present them to you in an enjoyable way, but that's not easy to do haha. Drawing manhwa is hard. The setting for this chapter was the cool atmosphere of a swimming pool, but because it revolved so much around Androssi, it kinda felt like an Androssi swimsuit special... Mm... This was actually the first time I drew a bikini. It's hard. Guys are easier. The host duo introduced in the beginning is indeed a Daft Punk parody. Of course, everything besides the concept is original. They released a new album and they kinda fit, so I put them in. They look really evil. I'm working very hard on the information regarding Slayers, but I have more work than expected, so it's being delayed. I'll reveal them as soon as I finish typing them up. Well then, it's getting hotter and hotter, so beware of heatstroke, and see you again next week. Thank you~ ~S.I.U Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 67 So Rak and Koon finally meet. Although it's not a huge shift in terms of storyline, it is indeed a chapter with important changes in the emotions, so I allowed it some length. Then again, I'm not sure if I distributed it across the chapter well, haha. It's very difficult to draw slides with only talking. Difficult to draw on the entertainment side, too. Because I tend to fit the story of Tower of God to the frame of a sonyun manhwa, I sometimes worry when I draw parts like this, and think things like "I do want to draw it, but will it be okay?" as well. However, I actually haven't decided on one genre to draw according to, so I plan to try everything I want to try the way I want. Who cares. P.S There's a limit on Neighbour Reveals as well II II P.S - 1 Although I revealed information about FUG Slayers, I still left it only revealed to Neighbours. Although there's a lot of talk about Neighbour Reveals, what I worry about the most is that readers who don't want to see it may see it when I reveal it to the public. Because the information on Neighbours are spoilers to some degree, I think that if readers came to the blog and accidentally read such information, it might not be the most pleasant thing. For this reason, I've left it only revealed to Neighbour request, but because I only recently learned that Naver blogs have a limit on the number of Neighbours you can have, I'm in a difficult situation now. So I'm not stopping people from taking the information on Neighbours so that people who want to see the information will be able to search it up (although it's difficult to completely allow it due to copyright matters, I'm not stopping you.) On top of that, the reason, in spite of all this, that I brought up the idea of making the post public is because I've become too stressed about this matter. Each day, I received several pages of hate mails and notes, and bad opinions about the problem started to arise all over the place. (Someone even said that I only accept requests from people I was close with) Of course, it's also my fault that things ended up this way, TT so I'm not saying that I'm being falsely accused. In conclusion, I do not want this info to become public. This is not because I don’t want to show you the information, but rather to only reveal it to those who want to see it. I don't want all of my readers to read my manhwa thinking 'based on the information given on the blog' As expected, the best way would be to run a separate blog for this background information, but I really don't have that time π π I think it'd be best to receive someone's help. I'll try to solve it as soon as possible, so until then, I'll appreciate it if you found the information by just using the wiki or searching it up. P.S -2 It seems the mobile version was uploaded in an uncorrected state;; The PC version is correct. I'll send a message for it to be fixed tomorrow. I've decided to put it on a separate background section of the fancafe. For now, I've decided that rather than revealing it publically, it'd be best to put it into a separate section because that would be clean and less burdensome for me, so I've discussed it with the cafe staff and decided to put it in the cafe. From now on, you can check the revealed information at the fan cafe. To the cafe staff who are helping me out in this busy time, I give my thanks ^^ ~S.I.U Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 68 One could say that Emile's story starts now. I lengthened the beginning to focus on the games and battles later. It might feel a bit long for those who wanted to see the tournament. It looked really bad when I tried to put in the middle ^^; But from next week onwards, I will take more time to draw the battles. Ro made a short appearance, I tried to make Ro the one opening the door for Androssi at first, but that made it look a bit too rushed and confusing, so I canceled that for later. So Emile would look more important ^^; The truth about Emile will be shown at later parts, But I will focus on the Regular's relationships at the moment. Please wait for next week, And have a good week! Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 69 I heard that it's been 3 years since I released my first chapter. I'm not the type to place much importance on things like this. ^^; Regardless, to think that I've been releasing a webtoon on a big internet portal like Naver for 3 years, it does make me very proud of myself haha. Both the betting game and the battle is based on the team tournament, so the individual matches will end a little quickly. I think the tournament itself will also be a little different from normal tournaments. ^ ^ The weather is hot these days, and with exams on top of that, you must be quite stressed. I hope you enjoy the webtoons and get a boost in spirits. Thanks for congratulating me on my 3rd anniversary. See you next week.~~ -S.I.U Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 70 Hello, I'm a rapid-growth artist Ah... Yes... I accidentally drew Wangnan without the Plug again. It was definitely in the original copy;;;; I keep messing it up. I'll fix it. Although Prince is a rapid-growth character, the other characters develop so fast that he unfortunately doesn't seem to be one... I actually don't want to make him very strong. Strong and cool characters are good, but I also like human characters who break easily, so I want to draw both kinds in an appealing way. This chapter was a little long, and after my hand got bad, my colouring has changed significantly. The lines are more prominent and colouring is easier, so I think for the time being, I'll probably keep drawing like this. As for the names of the Regulars, besides a few characters, I honestly make them up without meaning. I don't think you need to put much thought into them haha. Next chapter, the Mad Dog will make an appearance and the approximate direction of the tournament will become apparent. I hope you enjoy it ^^ Thank you~! S.I.U Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 71 Everyone seems to be here for Baam. He is popular in many ways. The problem is, most of them are trying to kill him. Perhaps the Gongbang tournament will be the first time Viole fights for real. So far, he fought enemies who were either too strong or too weak, sometimes because of game rules. (Something about how it is hard for him to write battles as being the main part of the story.) So far the story is somewhat peaceful(?) Next week, the popular protagonist will be shown briefly. ps. Thanks for the 3rd anniversary fanarts^^ I will post them when I have some time. Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 72 I had to leave, but now I'm finally back to writing this afterword. I actually met the deadline on Thursday, so I'm writing the afterword three days after finishing... this feeling is a bit strange. I wish there were an app like Emile. Of course, you might end up getting kidnapped by bad people, haha. For Viole's block, I thought about it a lot. What should be the theme? That sort of thing... Personally, I don't think Viole is that gentle. He is kind, but umm... Rather than a sense of justice, it's more like he acts according to what he himself thinks and believes. That's one side of him. It was planned to be like that from the beginning. Now, the goal of finding Rachel has become diluted, so that side of him couldn't be expressed as well, but I think he was able to show it in this chapter. In terms of expression, I was going to include more violent scenes, but that way the story would have dragged on too much, so I made it a bit sudden. ^^; Starting next chapter, the flow of the story will change. Please look forward to it, and have a nice week^^ Thank you~! - S.I.U. Spoiler: Season 2 - Chapter 73 This chapter explained the Life-is-a Bang rule. I've been working hard these days so this chapter is more of a break, and doesn't have much content in it. A bonus of 3,000,000 is a great oportunity, but if you think about it the other way round, if 4 or more Gamblers fail after going all in, you can advance to the next game even if you have a simple point left. If you consider the fact that the chances of winning the bet are not very high, it may actually be better to not bet all in haha. Well, probability is a very untrustworthy thing ^^ The plot from this point onwards will head in a very unpredictable direction~ Ths chapter also serves as the midpoint of the Workshop Battle. Slowly, the battles between characters, the organization of relationships, the story of Emile, and other things will unravel, so I hope you will enjoy it. Thank you. ^^ -S.I.U.
