Synopsis
Bullied by his classmate and popular Newtube streamer Pakgo, Yoo Hobin's high school days are filled with humiliation and abuse. His troubles don't end there though; outside of school, Hobin slaves away at a part-time job to pay for his mother's hospital bills. One day, Hobin accidentally spills ramen on Pakgo's cameraman "Jiksae," tripping over a cord and disconnecting the other boy from his gaming stream. Finally fed up with his miserable lifestyle, Hobin fights back and ends up in a pathetic brawl with Jiksae.

The next morning, it is revealed that the camera from Jiksae's stream had been recording the two boys' entire embarrassing fight. Moreover, the footage was accidentally uploaded to Newtube and had gone viral overnight, earning Hobin a whopping ten million won from viewership.

Drawn to the money Newtube streaming can offer him and his mother, Hobin works together with unlikely ally Jiksae to produce more videos of him fighting and see how far Newtube streaming can take them. Taking on bullies like Pakgo and other seemingly unsurpassable opponents, Hobin will either rise to the top of the streaming world or finally meet a foe he can't outsmart. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

We're really getting a lot of mahwa adaptions nowadays. Hopefully this is one of the good ones.

@irishwonders
Yea I’m happy with the composer too
Yutaka Yamada is my favorite composer and I’m looking forward to hearing what he does for this

Plus the anime sounds hype

This reminded me that I should get back to Lookism and also watch the anime.

When you think Japanese plots have finally hit peak stupidity, pepsi shows up to one-up them.

@Swagernator Japan does these all the time mate. It's 90% of modern isekai.

@EcchiGodMamster There are antagonist/villain girls but the MC is too shy to beat a female character sadly 😑

Feb 10, 8:11 AM by ZXEAN

Nice to see the producer I added to the DB was used in an article...

Feb 10, 8:05 AM by MadanielFL

@ZXEAN


antagonist/villain girls are essential for me, so if he doesn't fight against any of them then all my hope is lost lol

Feb 10, 8:00 AM by EcchiGodMamster

@Softhenic03 Hopefully that happens very soon.

"Crash landing on you" anime adaptation will be a dream come true exprence 🌝

Feb 10, 7:59 AM by ZXEAN

@EcchiGodMamster Don't worry there are lots of hot and beautiful girl in this show.

Feb 10, 7:56 AM by ZXEAN

I guess that day isn't very far when we'll see their live actions, which translate to kdramas, getting an anime adaptation too.

It's very much possible, as it seems japan is running out of source materials.

@ZXEAN

RIP..... all my hope is dead lol

Feb 10, 7:14 AM by EcchiGodMamster

The premise sounds pretty interesting and fresh dare I say it.

Might actually watch when it airs.

Feb 10, 6:59 AM by Ramkec

Oh look, another self gratification low self esteem product anime.

And ofc its from Korea, lmao.

Feb 10, 6:43 AM by Swagernator

@EcchiGodMamster I am not cought up with the manhwa but from what I have seen he never fought with a girl.

Feb 10, 3:47 AM by ZXEAN

@ZXEAN

@Memore

plz leme know if he fights any of his bully girls so i can skip to those episodes lol

Feb 10, 3:03 AM by EcchiGodMamster

I'm scared thinking about life in South Korea, if there are so many popular stories about "bullying and revenge" in the manhwa. Reminiscent of the Western 90s with a wave of stories about anti-urbanism and vigilantes.

@irishwonders Let's just say it's a fairly young studio that, for example, has "My Instant Death Ability is So Overpowered, No One in This Other World Stands a Chance Against Me!" (I love short titles like that) out now.

It's a young studio, but judging by the teaser, they'll do a pretty good job with the adaptation, but the manhwa will still be a cut above. Let's see what happens.

Feb 10, 12:27 AM by Omarumba

Omg, it's finally happening! I love this manhwa so much, the comedy is just gold. Hopefully, the fighting scenes will be good. I'm not familiar with the studio, but I'm happy with the composer at least!
