Kubera (One Last God)

Very surprised not find a thread here for this! One of my favourite webcomics out there, just slightly falling short of Tower of God.

Meanwhile across the realms, a web of entwined fates is growing tighter... One by one the other players of the game will emerge, each with their own agenda to pursue.

At the center of this maelstrom stands Kubera, the girl with a god's name. Will this sixteen-year-old be the salvation of the world... or its destruction?
Currently 118 chapters released. http://comic.naver.com/webtoon/list.nhn?titleId=131385

Kubera is full of interesting mythology (based loosely off hindu mythology), intrigue and a fairly memorable cast of characters. While suffering from a rather shaky start, doesn't take too long till you get hooked into the story. The main character may be slightly frustrating at times, it's easily made up by the plethora of side characters, including gods, demon like creatures called Sura and humans.
Art is fairly typical webcomic fair, not the best but not the worse, does grow on you with time.

Spoiler for general thoughts up to current chapter:

Wow. Zero replies? This kinda makes me sad.

This is currently one of my favorite weeklies, even more than a lot of the long running manga. For one, this is a straight adventure story with some very complex characters. Also, the setting and lore are meticulously crafted, not to mention that it uses a lot of flashforwards to build up tension.

With this, Tower of God, Dr. Frost, and Magician churning out some of the more well-written stories I've seen in a while, I'm starting to look at these webtoon style manhwa from Naver to be a quite a force to be reckoned with these days.

Probably just one of the people like on 4chan that spam that whenever a topic for Korean webmanga are put up. Don't let it bother you.

Kubera is probably one of my favorite series I'm following though there is a lot of contradictory things going on. Like why "God" Kubera is seemingly forcing the nastika to look for Leez and kill her while protecting her on the other hand. I'm really interested in the backstory more.

I figured as much, though my policy is to give potential trolls the benefit of the doubt.

That's one thing that's hurting this series. It hasn't placed all of its cards on the table as of yet. As a result, many things still feel much too vague and mysterious to make sense of. I'm talking about whatever it is Kubera is planning, as well as the gory details behind the war between the Gods and the Sura which eventually made the summoning of Gods into the human realm near impossible.

One more thing is that this current arc moving way too slow. I am curious though as to what the heck Gandharva is thinking of while deviating from the plan.

I'm pretty much assuming Gandharva is going to crack. He's been on the verge of it a few times though his conversations with Leez and Agni seemed to refocus him a bit. I don't think it will last though.

Either that or he'll sacrifice himself.

I wouldn't be surprised if he did. He has a lot of issues to deal with.
