The beginning after the end – A thrilling spin on the Isekai genre

Hey guys what is up welcome back to my blog I’m so thankful that you guys took the time out of your day to read my blog post. Hope you all are safe and healthy. This is an amazing manhwa and I understand the craze for it after I read it and I’m gonna explain it to you guys as well.

The story begins with the death of King Grey, a King in a world where nations are decided as powerful or weak by duels between their kings who work not as monarch but more as warriors. Now taking birth in a new world as a boy names Arthur. Initially confused, King Grey slowlsy starts adjusting to his new life as Arthur. Learning about the new world and its magic which is used by mana, he finds out all about his new world, about augmenters and conjurers and how he is special in this new world. Arthur devotes his time to studying about the world and gaining strength to protect his family and all the people he holds dear. Intitally loving a peaceful life, a bandit attack turns Arthur’s life around when he finds out that his new world has many more secrets than he has imagined and even his death in his previous life as King Grey might be connected to it. On a quest to get stronger and gather allies we follow Arthur through an exciting journey of different stages of his life watching his turn into an incredible badass.

The characters are abundant in the manhwa (yes I’m just lazy and don’t want to write the entire name again and again so I’ll just refer to it as the manhwa). From the start we see Arthur’s parents, his carefree and easygoing father and his protective and yet understanding mother. There are many many more characters such as the Twin Horns group of adventurers, who are connected to Arthur’s father. There are many many more characters that I just can’t spoil because it would ruin your reading experience (manhwas are like that). Just know that Arthur goes through some very nice character development as do some of the other characters and each of them have such unique personalities that the author can really make you hate the characters he wants you to hate and love the characters he wants you to love.

The manhwa flourishes in its beautiful art and action. I know many people would choose the storytelling as another factor but for me the action was much much better even if it was not present as much in the beginning. From the start of the show we are able to see Arthur be a badass, even as a child he uses the knowledge and skills from his old life to get stronger and as he gets older, his sword skills are something to be admired. The action is thrilling and always my favourite part. That said, I don’t think that the story is lacking in any way, there’s such a nice balance between action and funny moments and believe me the author knows how to do comedy. The storytelling is deep, it knows how to keep you intrigued in what’s currently going on while also slowly building up the bigger plot in the background which keeps a sense of mystery. Overall I don’t think there’s any bad points about the manhwa except that fact that the story is kind of slow in building up.

The lesson to pull from this manhwa is about second chances. Yes, we might not always get reincarnated into another world and get an entire second shot at life but that doesn’t mean that we don’t get second chances in life and when we do we must remember what we did wrong the first time and learn from it. There’s also the constant growth that Arthur shows. He’s all noble and mature since he’s a King but also keep on learning and growing throughout the story. He doesn’t only lean of magic, mana and new skills but also how to deal with emotions and feelings, something he didn’t have the time to learn in his life as King Grey. We too need to keep an open mind and keep on learning. The last thing that I learned is to not act on impulse and rather act only when prepared. I won’t reveal when but Arthur shows this quality when he has a chance to get revenge but he doesn’t simply because he isn’t strong enough to deal with the repercussions which leads to him preparing himself as we must too in life.

The manhwa is currently ongoing at 117 chapters and the story is picking up the pace with lots of new enemies coming into the picture and Arthur being the invincible badass that he is. With an engaging story, thrilling combat and a nice romance, The Beginning after The End is going well and shows no sign of stopping so I high reccomend catching up now and experiencing the incredible story.

Rap section:

The strongest king in his world and now he’s dead,
He thinks that death is the end but instead,
King Grey as a child into a new world is led,
New name Arthur and he’s got a while new story ahead.

He’s in a new world and it’s filled with new power,
But his knowledge from the old world is the real superpower,
Using his knowledge he’s getting stronger every hour,
He’s getting stronger in this world he’s not gonna cower.

Mana in the new world he’s awakening as an infant,
Becoming strong and different that’s his new commitment,
It doesn’t matter which enemy comes he’s indifferent,
He’s taking down enemies and any human delinquent.

Getting lost and he’s made a powerful friend,
His family in this new world he’s gonna defend,
Even though he’s strong like he’s weak he’s gonna pretend,
This ain’t the death of King Grey it’s the beginning after the end.

So that is it for this post guys hope you got some value from this.  Thank you guys for reading to the end hit me up on Instagram and Twitter with your thoughts and if you have any ideas on what I should write about. Stay safe from the COVID-19. Thank you again and I’ll see you all next week.
