Afterschool War Activities-  Action Manhwa/ Action Webtoons

Normally, the school’s extracurricular activities will be games, or library, or cultural clubs. However, in this manhwa, that isn’t the case because the characters’ extracurricular activity is military service.

On top of that, they aren’t fighting normal humans but alien species that invaded earth. Can it get any more interesting? I love how they designed the characters giving us the feel of fighting against human-like orbs.

It is a spectacular action manhwa, but this statement only gets justified if you read it until the end. The reason is that story development takes the priority over action scenes.

So, you can pretty much get an idea of how good this manhwa is, and thus, you’re about to witness one hell of an action-thriller manga/manhwa.
