    [Webtoon] Soul Cartel by Kim Eun Hyo & Kim Yeong Ji



    Author: KIM Eun-Hyo
    Artist: KIM Yeong-Ji
    Category: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Martial Arts, Supernatural

    Synopsis: An action packed fantasy adventure of a boy who gets into a contract with the devil Mephistopheles to be the referee in the historic rematch against Faust. The battle will be in the Underworld which is filled with Angels and Devils and countless demons who are all hunting for his priceless young human body.


    Take:
    It seems a tad odd that it doesn't have a thread considering its popularity and its rather extensive run. A manhwa that's definitely worth the effort. A lot of action, a bit of a humour, with some pretty engaging plot.

    The reason why i didnt start is was because of the synopsi(actually the synopsis in most manga sites are even more limited its like a guy who had a contract with the demon or sth). It seemed rather plain and weird and nothing to do with the MC. Could you give a bit more extensive take on the webtoon ? Because your take says lots of actions while the synopsis says referee for some one elses match(ergo my saying nothing to do with MC.

    The match, although effectively setting the characters on the path to the Underworld, is something that serves as a backdrop; it's significance is mainly in the context of the formation of the group. The plot actually is more directly related to their travels in the Underworld and their pursuit of information on the main character's parents, who disappeared in the Underworld years prior. The match itself is more psychological, Mephisto wishes to corrupt one of the main character's companions, something he failed to do centuries ago.

    Could have sworn we already had a thread for this series, but I looked and we do not. So good catch Impossibility.

    I followed it for a while but dropped it for some reason I can't even remember. It's one of those stories like DICE I've been meaning to catch back up on. If memory serves it's a good action series with a pretty strong vein of humor early on and was turning more dramatic when I stopped reading, for whatever reason.

    Honestly, it seems as though I chose a pretty good time to start this thread. There's a whole lot going on. Things have escalated significantly.

    I started off the series. Off the bat i hate the sister with a full Stop. Tsundere geeks with a top of the line ego and brother/darling/friend you are an idiot cuz i am gifted, kind of attitude is so prevalent in the mangas in so many different shapes that i got bored few yrs ago and now it seriously ticks me off.(because ultimately the guy is shown to be great and all that and this attitude doesnt make much sense then because at that time the guy doesnt tread her like a trash as a payback)
    I like the guys character(good humor and all that) but i am on chapter 15 and yet he has shown any thing which i want from an action manga hero not even any potential(probably that has something to do with talisment tho).
    Since I have seen you(impossiblity) in most of the manhwa thread i go so i kind a have some trust in your recommendation and i am pretty free now i ll prolly give 15 more chaps a read and hope things go well for me to get hooked.
    Hope it will be a good read in the upcoming chaps.

    To be fair, I had the same initial impression. I seriously wondered how our protagonist was going to be even remotely useful...he gets there. And the sister grows on you.

    DUDE you werent kidding about the action. At first I was disappointed because the guy had only the 3 rd arm technique but wow in the tournament he is rocking (i m in 158 ). My only critique is since Faust is really sharp he should have idk had like 3 months of lead training time before they sent the invitation for a tournament after 6 month. The MC s training is not finished yet. By then(3 mnts or more lead time) he prolly would have finished his training.
    BTW: the friend of his sister died right? i mean ya ok they are feeling bad but i doubt any reader will because i mean seriously we just got to know her before the match started only and that too not much didnt get attached that much.
