This is a club dedicated towards webtoons (aka Asian webcomics). We have most English translated webtoons listed here for you to browse through. Listed on the right are the licensed (or published) webtoons that are on MyAnimeList's (aka MAL's) database. The rest of the webtoons--that are not on MAL's database--are listed under Non-licensed Webtoons spoiler tab at the bottom of the profile page, in alphabetically order.
If you notice that a webtoon isn't on our lists, please let us know about it by commenting below.
Also, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to comment, however, please read through our guidelines and F.A.Q. before asking, as they hopefully can answer your questions.
A webtoon will only be added to MAL's database once it's officially published/licensed. This means that a reputable publishing company will sell the comic(s) in printed form, instead of being available for free.
To read more about MAL's terms and conditions for adding webtoons, click on the MAL Guidelines button below.
Here are some common questions around webtoons:
Q: What is a webtoon?
A: A webtoon (also known as online comics or Internet comics) are comics available over the internet, hosted on a website. Webtoons are in full colour and are normally presented in long strips (designed for smart phones, tablets and scrolling down on webpages) and are normally created digitally by using drawing software and tablets.
Q: Why is it called a webtoon? aren't they webcomics?
A: Webtoon (the term) comes from the Korean's slang name for online comics as the term webcomics is used in western society, however, both mean the same thing. Because this club is based around Asian media, we named the club after the Korean's term.
Q: Why isn't <insert webtoon title> on MAL's database?
A: A webtoon will NOT be added to MAL's database if it is not licensed/published by a reputable publishing company. Please refer to the Guidelines above for more details, however, it basically this means that until the comic is sold in printed hard copies, it's not licensed. Noblesse is an example of a licensed printed webtoon.
Q: But <insert webtoon title> is published by Naver, aren't they a publisher?
A: Naver is not owned by a reputable publishing company. Naver is a search portal. Naver does not publish manhwa in hard print and distribute them through typical manhwa sellers. While Naver may meet the definition outlines of a digital publisher, MAL does not allow digital-only publishers' works into they database.
You can read a very elaborate response on this topic here: Kineta, DB Administrator Post.
Q: So, why isn't Tower of God on MAL yet?
A: Funny enough, this question is the most asked regarding webtoons. Tower of God is not yet published by a reputable publishing company. If you search MAL's forums, you will see that this question has been asked many many times before.
Q: Why don't you link the webtoons to online reading websites?
A: A part of MAL's guidelines are they we are not to provide links to outside websites. Please don't post links to Mangafox, MangaHere, WebtoonsLive, etc as it is against the rules.
Q: Why isn't <insert American webcomic title> on here?
A: Because MAL is based around Asian media, we do not add any works that are not originally from an Asian country. This is the same reason as to why comics like Fisheye Placebo, The Fox Sister, Bear Nuts, etc are not on MAL.
Q: What's the point of this club?
A: This club is for fans of webtoons to come together and discuss, find new comics and recommend webtoons to other willing fans. As unpublished webtoons are not allowed to be added to MAL's database, this club also lists as many webtoons as we can find to help fans find other amazing comics.
Q: <Insert webtoon title> isn't listed on this club?
A: Really? Did you look under Non-licensed Webtoons Not on MAL? If it's not there then please tell us about it and we'll add it. Although, if it's not translated to English then we won't add it--as MAL is a English spoken/written website--and, the webtoon may be listed under an alternative name, please double check that before posting.
Did none of those answer your question? still a little unsure about something? Please feel free to post a comment and we will try and answer to our best ability.
We would love to spread the word of webtoons, so, here are some banners for you to link to the club.
Also, if you want to make some banners for us, we would be honored! Please link them to us and we'll upload them here...
