Before I talk about this title, I want to briefly introduce a relatively unknown type of drawn work, webtoon (online comic strip, typically Korean). Usually, they are drawn in full color and read in one long strip per chapter. From my experience, webtoon tend to focus on “animating” specific events. Thus, it can better capture little details, such as characters’ emotions and mental states using various computer graphics effects.
