    Baka-Update's (description)
    Wilds high, it has a history of 42 years as a fighting specialist all girls private highschool meant solely for the elite. The place Wilds-League is held, the most popular event in the country, the only place in the world where teenage girls have brutal fights with their lives.

    This year has been changed into a mixed gender school. The only male student? Song Jae Gu, who has been granted a full 3-year scholarship regardless of grades. Being someone who had to spend every moment working or taking care of his two younger brothers, he accepted.

    However, the scholarship was granted with the sole condition he does not leave. And after meeting Queen, bloody champion of Wild's-League, drenching her in coffee, calling her a "Monster" and getting caught while she was taking a shower... that could prove fatal.



    Thoughts About this Webtoon

    Girl of the Wild's is a fairly new webtoon, debuting on the seventh (7th) of August, 2011. It has attracted attention mainly due to the storyline about an all-girl's school academy, whose life and motto is power and dominance of the world. All of the students in the academy are obsessed with power, and the principal is none too pleased about it, voicing out his concerns that the girls are missing out of their youthful life. Enter Song Jae Gu, the only male student accepted into the academy, and romance (and fighting ensues).

    In the first chapters, the webtoon introduces us to the wonders of the All Girls Academy, and the top fighter of them all, the Queen, bloody champion of Wild's-League. In the next chapters, we get a glimpse on the life of Song Jae Gu. And in the later chapters, we get to see where the direction of this story is going.

    Mind you, this is still a fairly new webtoon, so the plots and actions are still being fleshed out, and it's only going to get better as it progresses.

    Hit or Miss? Is this for you? Read and find out!

    The webtoon basically has a fighting theme, so people who enjoy fights will like it. Plus, the main cast of characters are mostly girls, who loves fighting, so the combination is superb.
    The humor is also well presented. It isn't forced, and it flows naturally as you read the webcomic.
    The artwork is handled superbly. While it may not hold as much detail compared to, ahh let's say, reading a manga, for a webcomic, it is drawn beautifully.



    Here are some more artworks from the series~



    Where can i read this?
    You can pretty much read the series from the most common online manga readers on the web, but you can head to the scanslator's webite for the latest update.

    Very promising. Possible Hit...

    I haven't read it all yet. Just took a look at the artists' site (can't read Korean, yet; will work on that one day) and read the current page on the scanslator's site. I'm very impressed! Looks very interesting and promising. Don't know if I like the idea of having to scroll down to follow the flow of the story, but I do agree it is beautifully drawn, and it's seems well paced. I find the details-thing compared to manga is something that depends upon the artist. I would not doubt if time is an issue to the artist as well. This artist's focus seems to be concentrated more on character expressions... which works very well on the story's impact... IMHO.

    I'm not too wild about this wimpy character that's being beaten up by these bullies ("like, dude, have some freakin' cojones!"); but I always find having a cute meganeko come in and save the day teaching a bit of martial arts/focus on your ki and kick ass/self-defense is kinda cool!


    I'll be sending this one to my feed and checking it out s'more. Thanks for the review! Looking forward to reading it from the beginning.
    toes in sand.
    drink in hand.
    yes, you can!

          This character looks similar to Shinobu Oshino in Nisemonogatari

                i didn't realize webtoon live dropped soooo much of their projects, this one included.

                oh, and speaking of which, is it just me of it is prevalent in most korean comics, that their culture depicts a sense of "bully-ness" in their culture...?

                  The comedy draws me more than the fighting.

                    Since I was just reminded of this I went and read chapter 1 - 119. Weeell.

                    I like the art, there some really nice scenes (generally involving action one way or another), but occasionally it feels a bit too sloppy. Nothing that should put you off the series - in fact, if not for the "covers" of the first few pages I probably wouldn't have stuck with it ...

                    ... which already says quite a bit about what I think of the writing. Takes a few chapters too long to really get to the point of the plot, then does a somewhat decent job until the protagonist's main issue is solved and then ... well? What then?! How about following up with something instead of just disappearing into some random poking around a bit here and then a bit there? ^^;
                    I don't like how the plot uses too many stereotypical developments, like the weak protagonist getting decently strong in practically no time at all, I don't like how it goes on about the typical Asian sexism (especially in the beginning), I don't like how it goes on about "being too weak to do anything about bullying", which is a very dangerous and decisively wrong thought to put out there, I don't like how much of the action is pretty meaningless and, dear God, completely without tension as it's basically one-sidedly beating up bad guys most of the time, I don't like how it's needlessly predictable at times - but none of that matters compared to the fact that after the first "arc" it's simply boring. There's nothing worse than being boring, even being infuriating is better - at least I'd care then. ^^;

                    There still plenty of plot points out there, so there's a slim chance they get back on track, but I'd be seriously surprised. I mean SERIOUSLY surprised. As surprised as I was when I checked how a paper of mine was graded that I personally considered complete rubbish. Basically - the kind of thing that's not going to happen twice. ^^

                    Darn. Wish for once I had more to say about the positives ...
                    ... I did mention I like the art, right? Should count for something. ^^
