What Is Good About The Beginning After The End (끝이 아닌 시작)

Like many, I find The Beginning After The End a very exciting and exhilarating manhwa to follow. It is filled with tonnes of awesome characters, stories and secrets.


The storyline is just simply amazing. I cannot emphasise just how brilliant this manhwa is in words. The story is well-paced, it intertwines really well with the amazing characters. It has a very unique view on magic and is, in my opinion, a very brilliant isekai-based manhwa.

Art Style

The art style is very unique and I can’t help but state that the colour palettes which were used by Fuyuki23 are absolutely brilliant. The colours really bring the magic aspects to life and the character portrayal is amazing!


The characters are simply amazing! They are very unique and their personalities are perfect for their character designs. You can almost imagine what they would be like in real life. I also have to say, there are times when you look at the character designs and just know that a character will be nothing but trouble!

Long Chapters

The manhwa features some very nice long chapters with incredibly detailed art (as mentioned above, the art is amazing!) – I have to admit this is something which I always look for in a manhwa as there is nothing worse than having short chapters and always being stuck waiting for the next release! (looking at you Moshi Fanren).

Light Novel

The manhwa is based on the original light novels by TurtleMe and honestly, I cannot wait to see the newest chapters as they get released!

I have included the official link to buy the light novels from Amazon below!

What Is Bad About The Beginning After The End (끝이 아닌 시작)


There is genuinely nothing that I could think of which is bad about The Beginning After The End. I will admit, in some chapters, the characters have developed long feet, but, it’s an easy mistake to make and could just be the angle they are facing.

Overall Conclusion

My overall conclusion is that if you haven’t already – go and pick up The Beginning After The End as soon as possible! It is an amazing read and honestly – you won’t be disappointed. It has a lot of cool things, including dragons and who doesn’t like dragons! I really hope that you’ve enjoyed this review and will be picking up The Beginning After The End as a new manhwa to follow.
