A good sum up of season 1, by Lee Hye, the author: http://read.egscans.org/Divine_Bells/Chapter_029_extra2
any one knows the frequency of the release? it seems the prologue (as the author wishes to name it) is over. I kind a like the young king he is resolute and anything but naive. Also he has an expression which fools every one.. thats quite good from a shonen main chara.
i wish he could muster power enough to rival the emperor or the powerhouses like the little girl who uses birds
Here the page of Easygoingscans, the group scanlating it. And here, their schedule. Regularly we have had chapters all mondays.
I also like that girl, that should be no a girl but a woman in her true form. I feel the protagonist is still in development, and only in the big struggles we could see his real power and will.

I like that raven controling girl too. Though i am a bit skeptic about a main chara who doesnt use sword much rather use bows and arrow. Havent seen much of this kind and its i hate to say not that cool i mean read the magician the main chara ie Enzu is a mad powerful swordmaster Time an incredibly powerful chara probably one of the strongest shown in the webtoon is the strongest sword master shown the way sword can be enhanced in the manga like a spacecut or superb sword tech or speed slash cant be really imported in the archery zone.....
Well, the real powers of all characters here are still waiting to be known. I'm interested in the main plot, namely what happened 150 years ago? Why the bells had to be sealed? But some good fights should have to happen before we know it.
Thanks for bringing this one to my attention ukimix. I've been reading it over the past week and I'm totally into it now.
It's got that great sense of humor than TAL had before it's plot got super complicated. That whole scene with the faked battle was absolutely hilarious.
Good to see you here Jammin, so what do you think of the archery element? like i was saying sword arts can be made much more ostentatious in the manga and powers can be enhanced incredibly but i dont see how the same can be done for archery. As this is a fantasy manhwa the combats needs to be over the top so i dont really see how archery can be made that cool... (may be i am too much into the Magician btw). But i like the utilitarian attitude of the Main and the fun element of the raven girl and the divine bell. So far the charas are really interesting dont you think?

When I look at Manwha I often realize that video games more often than not have had a huge influence on various series. If you think about what bows can do in various games, there is a lot that can be done with them.
At the same time though I suspect the protagonist is a lot better fighter in general than we've been led to believe so far. I feel like the series keeps hinting at that, like when he commented during the illusion that he wouldn't go down that easily.
Chapter out: http://readonline.egscans.org/Divine...isplay=webtoon
This pic is very nice:
I think something like that must be her true adult form.
where did you get that pic i dont see it in the chap... may be a loading prob
Any way i was half expecting/wishing a time skip for like a yr or so but it seems the season 2 started RIGHT after s1. So far its going seamlessly and without dropping quality. Do you guys think the 2 Divine bells will inform all others about the scheme that the emperor is brewing ?
It's a pic from the past week chapter .
mmmm betrayal inside the bells, I don't think so. At least, they didn't reveal to the emperor that the Gang Hui they killed was a fake, so they seems to be in favour of Gang Hui. And they don't knows is the emperor and they don't like to be used by him. They now have to tell the other bells if Gnag Hui is trying to find Ga bi or if he was killed. I think they will tell the true.
About the topic of the king choosing bow over the sword, I think the story has been thought to have different kind of powers, with prominence for each kind. Possibly the King will have great spiritual power, and he will use it in a very critical moment. And the most powerful 'material' blows could be thrown by the bells, and mostly by Gang Hui. But there must be moments of shine for each kind.
Now, I'm wondering about who is behind the letter sent to the Emperor telling him about the location of Ga bi. Do you think the emperor is Baek Yeom (the very same emperor from 150 years go)? Or that we have two different 'bad' sides searching their objectives?:
If you are asking for a gut feeling then i think the emperor will have a part to play with this group
I dont think that be the case, I was more into the theory that the old emperor is controling the special group instead of the special group being an accomplice in purpose like as shown yet (ie the sinster grp is assisting the emperor)
But its a good thought may be he used some spell to change his face or incarnate or sth.
Given the scanty information released so far any thing is possible
