Top 15+ Fantasy Webtoons and Manhwa
16. Phantom Paradise
From the artwork to the plot, everything is so precise and overwhelming that it gives a place to this in fantasy webtoons. It is the story of a male concubine Hayate Shizuki, who climbs his way up in the imperial harem of Phantom Paradise, hiding his sinister motive against the empress Madonna. His mission against the royalty is to arrest the soul of the empress and bring it to the devil as he has promised. Will he succeed, or will the empress survive and continue to rule her paradise in hell?
This webtoon deals with time travel and the urge of Noah to make things right. The price though must be paid as he tries to change the past. The story deals with stubborn characters with set personality and awkwardness here and there. The relationship of Noah with his family undergoes troubles at every point. The story is comparatively still new though there are enough chapters now to look out for theories and plot deepening. It talks about a post-apocalyptic world where there are special powers for people and most turns into something similar to zombies. The art style is also good and I like the way the author draws eyes. A name you probably want to add amongst the fantasy webtoons and manhwas you’d like to read.
Dealing with mysteries and secrets scattered throughout the plot this fantasy webtoon is sweet and plot-driven. Some might consider the chapter-length a bit short but it is quite fine in the long run. The art is great and the character development is great and the character development is great too. Lumine is a werewolf who is extremely rare and only weredogs are found in the common. Though he is extremely small and no one takes much notice of how he does things. Both werewolves and weredogs exist in human forms with ears and tail sticking out however they can transform in their feral form whenever they desire.
Kody is a witch whose dad, Aiden takes in Lumine knowing full well who he is. Kody being an outcast at school is a child with a temper and good all cold savage glares. Aiden takes in Lumine as the bodyguard of his son, Kody and being the cinnamon roll he is we see Kody slowly opening up to him. Though the plot gets more and more diversified and the cute artwork sure outlines secrets which are to be discovered as the series progress further. A nice read for when you crave for fantasy webtoons.
In case you miss the Harry Potter universe or its setting this story is totally for you. No, that simply does not imply that it is a strip off but the world with witches, wizards and magic often makes you nostalgic. The art style is extremely cute and the backgrounds do the magic. A story that is friendly to all generations. If you want a calm read which does play with your emotions a bit, then it is the go-to webtoon.
Hooky is a story that revolves around two siblings who miss the bus to their magical school and go on with their adventures as they simply try to hide the fact from their parents. One thing leads to another and in no time they are uncovering mysteries and realizing the lies they have been fed with. There are some heartbreaks which you deal with and some moments which you would be wanting to treasure throughout. Though, this title from our list of fantasy webtoons and manhwas will always be a memorable one.
Next on the list of top fantasy webtoons is a fantasy-romance webtoon with lots of cute moments. The art style is beautiful and light-colored. Emma and Ryan are ‘THE’ made for each other couple. The friendships and the intersecting relationships of other characters are mesmerizing. Throughout the webtoon, you will keep laughing at the humor and adorable naivety of Emma. This is one of the most wholesome romance- fantasy manhwas one can reach out for. The simplicity of the plot helps it from getting caught up in the usual clichés of romance genres. The life of beings other than humans coordinate properly with humans and demands no questions as to how things fall in place making it a light and sensible read.
From the author of Orange Marmalade, this story has you quacking throughout either as you pray for some character to get thrown out or so that the leads realize what they feel for each other. Another title amongst top fantasy webtoons and manhwas which deals with werewolves and humans. All Humans keep the werewolves in this universe as pets even when they have a human form with ears and tail sticking out. The feral form is often restricted and not called out by the werewolves anymore or so is portrayed throughout the society. Submission of werewolves helps humans keep themselves safe from the powerful beasts and one can point out how humans discriminate werewolves in daily life.
Haru, a werewolf is adopted by Hana’s dad Mr. Lee. Hana and Haru have always been close to Hana. Mr. Lee works as an ambassador fighting for equal rights to the werewolves. Things start turning towards a serious scene as werewolves earn the freedom to attend schools. This fantasy webtoon takes deeper arcs and the plot widens with details and character development.
It is a story about a small group of people who travel from one place to another in this fantasy universe. Ethermask the main immortal protagonist and how he searches for the answer as to how to cast the immortality spell. This fantasy webtoon is slow-paced and some chapters might even seem to be having no progress as we witness the characters strolling from one place to another. However, this slow pacing helps the story as we gradually get attached to how and who the characters are. Having a strong female lead, Iremy who at times might make you facepalm yourself as she does things as she desires.
The story is filled with many sweet and comedy moments too. When the high end feels are introduced they do touch you as the plot is genuinely worked upon. The art is very good and backgrounds often have good details about this world. This is a type of classic when we talk about the fantasy genre in webtoons and manhwas.
A ghost who is overly sensitive about her house and will always clean it up, shoo the birds away, does not let anyone inside the house is now in a mess with a newbie red crow and a nuisance of a ghost. Red crows are people who wind up ghosts and use them for the betterment of society. This story is extremely different from any of the already present fantasy webtoons or manhwas. The starting is a bit hazy but when you complete the first five chapters you have a good clue as to what is happening.
Winter is the main protagonist of the story. Nox is a ghost who enters her house and is now connected to her due to, well some ‘reasons’. Wren is a red crow who captures both Winter and Nox. The story is building up and after 80 chapters we have solid questions and understanding as to how this human-ghost coexisting-universe stuff works. It is a story with good planning. The starting scenes of the first chapter still feel mysterious which I suspect are of good significance as the story goes further in the future. Working on a new perspective this deserves a chance if you are looking for unique fantasy webtoons and manhwas.
Lalin’s curse is one of the latest titles gaining much popularity as it goes further. The story deals with supernatural beings like demons. Whilst the plot is still not open one can notice the gradual detail addition. The art style is very cute and beautiful. The colors are vibrant and detail-oriented. You can notice foreshadowing and chapter connection even if it’s in the beginning stage.
It is a story follows David who is very into things and theories that are usually from mundane imagination and ‘fantasy’ plots like aliens, ghosts, demons, etc. From the starting being a child with such imagination has caused him to draw the title of being a child interested in the supernatural. Things start accelerating as he finds a lead towards his imagination. Is there a link between the unusual things happening to him? Check out this latest title under our list of top fantasy manhwa and webtoons.
I find this webtoon to be extremely underrated when it delivers one with such a great story, character arcs, detailing and art. The only aspect which might cause you discomfort is that there are these soul-crushing scenes which make you want to sit in the corner of your room and mourn.
Mori Jin is an independent high school student who doesn’t care about much but food and fights that he wins. A stranger approaches Mori so that he takes part in the contest GOH contest. In the contest, he must showcase his fighting abilities. Mori simply accepts the offer. In the very starting, we find adults reaching out for three people at the prime for the same contest. The people are Mori Jin (obviously), Yu Mira and Han Daewi. After fights and some sessions, we gradually realize that a contest is not what is taking place but there is something serious going on throughout.
There in the first chapters are details that arise later at about 150-200-chapter number describing just how well planned the whole set up. This title from our list of top fantasy webtoons and manhwa also breaks the stereotype of always keeping the main protagonist on the main front. There are durations when we see other characters developing in the absence of Mori Jin. The character development is so satisfying and everything has a reason behind it. I can write the whole plot to convince you to give this a read but it’s your decision and I hope you enjoy it. If you binge it, you might find it hard to swallow certain details as they go real further in the description but overall it is an awesome webtoon.
It is an incredible webtoon with comparatively fewer chapters. I adored the simplicity of the art style. This fantasy manhwa was first published as Manyeo Sanyang in Korean language and later translated by Line webtoon in English. We start the webtoon by taking things in from Garmeen, an elementary school guy who steals things habitually. A new girl gets enrolled in his class named Izzy, who is a lone person, carries an umbrella wherever she goes and no one talks to her due to the aura she gives off. Garmeen tries to get close to her as he wants to learn about a necklace she always wears. One day he manages to steal her necklace and it is realized that she is a very powerful witch. Garmeen finds himself in a war between the demons and witches.
The story might look like it is a bit slow-paced though on a wider perspective the gap phase is needed because without it there will be ‘too’ many twists in a short duration. Izzy’s character is powerful and independent but as we get to know her we realize how time and time again all her attachments go through tests. The ending is slightly heartbreaking. The story holds so much more than just a war between demons and witches. The reasons, the portrayal and what emotions led to such turn of events is splendid. The past flashbacks are in proper sync with the story and when you learn about the importance of that umbrella you might want one to hide away your ears. It is a wonderful ride about character arcs and lost time which could have resulted in better actions.
All the people in this fantasy webtoon have powers on a varying scale which rules out how strong a person. Wellston High is the school for elites who have abilities that surpass the average tire with a serious hierarchy amongst the different tiers. John is a new enrollment in the school and society considers him to be a ‘cripple’ I.e. someone with no superpowers. How will he survive in such a hierarchy and what does the confidence he portrays have to do with being the lowest on the ranks?
The webtoon is awesome with great descriptions regarding every aspect of this fantasy world. Seraphina, John, and Arlo are one of the very main characters in this diverse plot. The characters are likable and have personalities that collide but collaborate. As you become part of this massive fandom you will slowly realize why Arlo is Ass-lo and why we hate hair gel. Nothing weird in here I promise.
At no point does Winter Woods disappoint the readers in any way. The story takes place as a mix of past and present where the main protagonist Winter is something that lives but is not ‘Human’. The journey of him coming in terms with what real life is after he has been an experiment for so long is sweet and a part of him is quite mysterious. Jane is an aspiring writer looking for a story and she meets Winter as a setup coincidence.
The art style is simple and sweet with warm colors. This title on our list of fantasy webtoons and manhwas follows a tale of darkness and light. Additionally, dealing with some deep contexts like abuse and violence. Thus, qualifying under the thriller-romance genre to an extent. It ends on a bittersweet note, living you with many feels. The ending justifies the doings of every character there is and I find it extremely satisfying.
This webtoon title is one of the latest in the fantasy series. Winner of Line Webtoon’s 7th Creator Contest, the contest was downright warzone (I am the witness of it all); from 7000 comics this one bagged the prize. The contest sure gave us many titles that are wonderful in their sense. It boosted the reading list by folds. Cape of spirits is a universe that was used by the author as a videogame in her other series named Fictional Skin. You can find it in the discover section and is now on hiatus until the Cape of Spirits is completed. The action, adventure, and character portrayal are proper and there is no lack of plotting. Being new there is still a lot of potential in the story and we will see how the authors play it out.
Jinsei is a former heir to the throne and now a fugitive on the run from his empire. Kanae holds Jensei captive and plans on delivering his head. To even the score regarding a personal grudge with Jensei, she finds herself in a threatening situation. She needs to set Jinsei free to escape. Jinsei, Kanae, Flavyus and Nine, an AI should work as a team and fight whilst uncovering many secrets lying behind ‘coins’. Coins are the sources of powers and abilities in this world. The characters are a bit unfamiliar to each other too so we get to know about characters on similar coordination. How they will deal with problems is the basic plot outlining.
If this doesn’t belong in the list of top fantasy webtoons then I don’t even know what does. There are webtoons which make you feel all fuzzy and even sad but very little make you feel emotions the way it did. Such a wholesome story and plot. You can easily observe the art style getting intense and the plot deepening earlier this year when this comes to an end it as really the end of an era.
A must-read for every fantasy webtoons fan. This story shows a new perspective towards the usual vampires, wolves and human worlds. The authors did their best in putting the pieces together. In the middle-end part of the story, there is a bit of lack on the detail stage. Nonetheless, it causes no flaws in this series. Franklin is the ultimate link of the series and Rai, the hero who is by far the best. You will want the series to continue dreading every other step but it is worth it. totally WORTH IT.
When the main protagonist’s name is something like Twenty-Fifth Bam then you do know this story has some serious deviation from the usual. Bam lives his days alone with only one person who comes in his life one day named Rachel. Rachel enters The Tower and Bam manages to get inside by his pure will of not wanting to let go of his only friend Rachel. Each floor requires every incoming person to face challenges and hence reach the top of the tower. The world is quite mysterious holding up folds after folds and gives readers a whole set up to gradually tear out. The plot build-up, arcs, and foreshadowing are simply majestic.
SIU the author of this series has been working on this series since 2010 and it continues. The time amounts to his hard work and descriptive storyline. There are comedy elements, emotional connections, and characters whom you can hate as a whole nation and need not feel bad about. The author of this Fantasy webtoon does an exemplary job building the story up. Khun and Rak are some of the center characters alongside Bam who are equally likable. The art style, in the beginning, is very simple but you need to stick with it because the art style gets to the gorgeous stage. We see the characters gradually developing and story progressing. This deserves the top place in this fantasy webtoons and manhwas list with all its might.
Fantasy is an always turning genre demanding new stories and styles to come forward. Still, there are certain fantasy webtoons and manhwas which achieve a place where it is impossible to remove them. In case we missed any of your favorites mention it below.
