About the Story

Sul is a gardener living in the heart of a city - a veritable concrete jungle. He is an avid gardener and his yard is filled with rare plants which he tends with loving care. The townsfolk object to his practices and set his garden on fire, claiming that the plants are 'dangerous'.

Sul is blinded in the blaze and admitted to a hospital, where he promptly lapses into a coma. While his niece anxiously awaits his revival, Sul finds himself trapped in a world full of many and varied trees; the likes of which he had never seen before. A world that, at first glance, appears to be his ideal utopia. But he soon discovers that there is unmistakable cruelty lurking beneath the facade of beauty and tranquility...

Personal Note

I picked this series few weeks back. The chapters are coming more regularly then they were before, so I decided to make a thread for it. And moreover, the series is developing nicely with each chapter.

The series has an interesting plot. An aura of mystery you can say. I think I should mention at this point that its a colored manhwa \o/. The art is very good, vibrant coloring makes it more enjoyable. Character so far are intriguing. Overall, its a very good read.

It will take few chapters to have a good feel of the story. There are only 25 chapters out so you should be able to catch up pretty quick.

I caught up the last chapter 25. The chapter flow from one to the next was really well done. The pace is also good for the story, this is another must read for those have not read it yet.

Actually, the old man is a pedo. I'm joking. :rofl

Scav, the story is really good, give it a try. The story is presented in a nice way, the art is good too.

If I say more, I will spoil you. But scav, its not all there is to it. There are elements of mystery, supernatural (apparently). Trust my words, you will not regret reading it. As Charlie said, the transition from one event to another is worth a read.

Thank you for the discovery. It is really nice to see a serie which takes fool benefit of the color. It really emphasizes the art.

About the last chapter, could it be that Sul will keep his power with the trees once he come back to the real world

Chapter 34 is out - final chapter.

So the show ends on a positive note. The main character is free but blind, the plants seem to start growing back. It was an enjoyable series. I wish there was more of it, I would have liked it if the main characters powers were developed a little more.

Pretty good manhwa! I read in one day, it is different of many things i read in comics....

The setting in a world with almost any plants left, and the the way the colors were used. It is a mature work, that can make people think too... Well, i live in the amazon florest region, so even if the cities don't have florest you can see kilometers of florest between each city.
