Lovers of psychology buckle up for a dive. We meet Dr. Frost, a young genius psychologist who believes all humans are the same. While the story centers around Dr. Frost we see him through the eyes and perspective of a young college intern. The story takes place at a college where Frost takes up as the head psychologist at the clinic. Due to the nature of some of the topics, we warn there might be triggering events and to proceed with caution. Dr. Frost also has a K-Drama for those who indulge in TV more so than reading.

Ever heard the story of Hades and Persephone? Well, get ready for a modern revamp. Even if you’re not all too familiar with the story this is one of our personal favorites. Persephone is going to college and struggles between being grateful/understanding of her mother while also being a young adult with free will. Hades sees her at a party and with a little help from Aphrodite and Hera things get a bit strange and a bit more fun. We must put a trigger warning however, themes of sexual abuse and PTSD are covered in this webtoon. Please proceed with caution. We here at THP care about your well being and mental health. Our hearts go out to survivors of hard situations.
God Of High School

Mori Jin might just be our favorite protagonist ever. Think you know what this is about? You honestly have no idea. Welcome to the competition of a lifetime. The God of High School Tournament where high schoolers from all over the world will compete in a fight. All styles from karate, to swordplay, boxing, and even football are competing to see who’s fighting style reigns supreme. Crazy things are happening under the surface.
You may be wondering why we’re talking reading and webcomics in the anime chat. Believe us when we have good intel that webtoons might be a new era of anime:
God of High School premiered this month as well as Tower of God getting through season 1 with a quickness. Not to mention Noblesse (another webtoon) has an anime already. There is a lot of potentials as well as a lot of stories you can fall in love with. A lot of these webtoons originate in manwha or Korean comic books.
