I seriously thought I had done a recommendation for “Midnight Poppy Land”, but guess I missed it. Anyway, you better head to webtoons to read this amazing story!
|Adapted||Nope, sadly (Patreon)|
|Genre||Drama, Romance, Slice of Life|
After making a grisly discovery in the countryside, a small town book editor’s life gets entangled with a young Mafia lord and his intimidating bodyguard… even as every step she takes draws her deeper into the dangerous underworld of the city.
There’s definitely a dedicate fanbase to this comic and for good reasons. I absolutely love this one and I’ve been reading it since it came out. Poppy’s sweetness but also stubbornness just makes me love her so much! I don’t think she fully know her effect she has on Tora, but we all know Tora is head over heels for her.
Tora is doing things he never expected to do, including eating bento boxes she made for him. Like, he even thinks of her and smiles all like a cute lil pumpkin!
The two come from different worlds, but that may not be such a bad thing. We all learn and grow, they both need love and support. It doesn’t matter Tora comes from a gangster world, he still needs someone who listens to him and can support him.
Same goes for Poppy, despite trying to be strong… it’s not always easy.
I also sympathies with Poppy and her losing her father. A chapter focusing on the passing of her father left me weeping. It hit home and hard.
This chapter showed Lilydusk’s ability to pull on our heartstrings without making it seem like a cheap shot at our feelings. It’s obvious Poppy is going to suffer and be reminded of her father. Especially in moment’s of weakness. And that’s ok, too.
I absolutely love how Tora is so supportive of Poppy. He’s obviously very proud of her and her accomplishments, including the bento she made for him. It’s such a stark comparison to how Poppy’s ex behaved. The ass.
Recommendation: YES, YOU MUST BE READING THIS.
