The love between family members is made of unyielding bonds. Fondness between friends is what we call a strong friendship. A relationship between a man and a woman, on the other hand, can be so many things. A young couple would probably declare their infatuation towards each other a great, undying love but a relationship is so much more than that. It requires understanding and patience between the two parties. You are no longer the sole passenger of your boat. It now has two, and it takes cooperation to row the boat together.
This webtoon is packed with romance, loss, and tragedy. Cordelia, the girl on this post's cover image is the first among the many other ladies we will be reading about.
However, in This Witch of Mine, this is not the case.
Witches are beings possessing magical powers capable of causing catastrophe and destruction wherever they go. Thus, they are feared and ostracized by the general populace. Though powerful they may be, witches still wish for affection from their special one. Each witch has their ideas on what true love is, so you'll be enjoying the many forms of love in this webtoon.
I really enjoyed this webtoon partly due to how warped and self-centred these ladies are. The first couple was born out of obsession and necessity. She actively pursues her first love without respecting the other party. Is it truly love if every thought of your partner was manipulated, be it directly or otherwise, by you? The second couple is, unfortunately, quite tragic. You get to see how an obsession with the past can absolutely destroy you on the inside. As the story goes, you watch how every witch falls in love and how they come to terms with it.
Separation, loss and falling out of love are common plot points in a romance, but This Witch of Mine spices things up by breaking the mould. Witches do not follow the common sense of a mortal being, thus their love is very different. This makes an interesting read because these love stories are intensely warped from the reader's perspective, yet still ends up being well-written as we understand each character's motivation.
This webtoon has two seasons. Altogether, around 50 main chapters and 8 or so side chapters. Each chapter is a sizeable length, and the art is easy to digest. It's already completed so don't wait to jump right in!
