Written and drawn by Lee Jong-hui under the pseudonym Slave In Utero, ‘Tower of God’ is one remarkable web manga that has a fairly simple premise, but what makes it special is its seamless blend of 2D characters and backgrounds that bring its fantastical world to life. Apart from being very visually appealing, the ‘Tower of God’ also seems to show no exhaustion in context with its storyline and keeps hyping you up as a viewer.
The whole medium of webtoons hasn’t really caught up with the Western audience yet but now that ‘Tower of Gods’ is finally getting its very own anime adaptation, anime fans from all over the world will now know about it.

It sure has a lot of potential and if executed well, it could easily be one of the best anime shows of the year. Although the details regarding its production and cast are still under the wraps, here is everything that we know about its first season so far.
