    UnOrdinary is an original created and illustrated by Uru-chan. Initially hosted on Tapastic, it was then featured on LINE Webtoon's Challenge League before becoming a full-fledged webtoon on LINE.

    PLOT:

    The world is not perfect. Learning to deal with its flaws is just a normal part of life. But there comes a point where these imperfections spawn a crushing realisation... that something needs to change...



    Didn't see a thread about it yet so I decided to create it myself. Some people might become interested in it. I'm digging it so far. Give it a read as well.
    Can't post pics, but look it up on LINE Webtoon.

    Got that same impression in the first place. But after seeing it's sudden rise in popularity I decided to give it a try and it's actually pretty good.

    read this almost since it started. it's good but you have to mind the slow pace and relatively short chapters. you get used to it after a while tho.

    I enjoy reading this series quite a bit. One of few series im still not disappointed in (thought it is fairly new series).

    I'm enjoying it, bit worried about the power creep but it doesn't seem to want to go that way yet.

    Well, Sera is is shitty situation. I wonder how she would handle being harassed for weakness, and finding out that John is lying.

    Wonder what will happen after this chapter. Will the author try to cover it all up with Sera regaining her ability at that exact time and rewind her wound?? Because if nothing happens, then Arlo is in some deep shit... No way is John not going to know that Sera bled if everyone starts talking about it.
    But then again he is really reluctant to use his ability, at which point let's be honest, it's being pretty dumb of him. Maybe it's his way to punish himself (we are still in the dark about him, and even more now that we know about his ability suddenly rising when it was just around 1 before) for what he did in the past with his abusive power, but he should be over it already. The UnOrdinary book from his father should've taught him the lesson, as Sera noted, only the strongest have the power to help the weak and influence the world with their power and he could do just that!!!
    Still another pretty good chapter, but like most, way too quick, and another pain in the neck of a week wait... It was perfect when I read the first 52 chapters in a row. :(

    He doesn't use his ability because he doesn't trust himself to be fair with it. He was a cruel King before, imagine what he'll be like with this lot who have beaten him like a dog and treated him like trash everyday he has seen them. He wouldn't get chance to be kind to them even if he wanted to as they would be constantly testing the limits of what they could do with this previously well known bitch boy now leading them.

    I wish this chapter was longer, or at least sticked to one person, we got double cliffhanger with doc/Sera, and Arlo/John. I really wonder if they manage to get her powers back, though if it happens i guess it will be much later, would be anticlimatic if she recovered too early.
    I wonder how to what extent other students will bully Seraphina, since she was at the top before, and now below everybody, that's putting target on her back, even more that being cripple from the beginning.
    Hope that soon she will find out, truth about John, wanna see how they will handle it.

    The chapters need to be longer...

    But then again, this is what happens when you read something, something good mind you, weekly, it's even worse when it's monthly.

    I actually have respect for Arlo after this chapter - I quite like his character although he is a twat. The fact he worked on his cqc even with his ability is a nice touch.

    I want to know how John's ability work, if he copy a power, how long he can use it after other person stops using ability.
    Also how does physical strenght work in this universe? Arlo was shown a few times to have strong body, can other people be as impressive even if they aren't high tiers?

    I think John himself could actually be close to the top of what people can do without powers. This school is filled with the high tier students and escaping fights with only cuts and broken limbs is pretty impressive.

    I know that John is skilled fighter, and he keeps himself in good shape. I was wondering about pure physical strenght, like how much can they lift, and how it is connected to abilities. I thought that people get stronger when they use ability, but Arlo certainly didn't and still lifted John with one arm, and took barely any damage from a punch.

    There’s no standard measurement of strength in unOrdinary that I know of. I don’t recall there being any incredible feats to make me think those with powers are that much stronger physically than the cripples without activating their powers either. Perhaps enhanced durability in the case of John because of the beatdowns he receives on a regular basis...?

    They have ratings on their abilities and the author included the stat pages at the end of each chapter. Durability, power, speed, trick, endurance were all included stats can't remember the rest. The entire universe is based on standardised measurements of strength to establish order. The author has shown in fights people doing things beyond a normal person's ability to deal with and if you come at me with some MMA shit what's a low kick going to do to a lazer in the face?

    Guess John’s big reveal to Seraphina has been postponed due to Remi coming to her aid. Blyke will lend a hand out of his relationship with Remi most likely and Isen might step in since he doesn’t want John to go berserk...

    Soon John's secret should be revealed to Seraphina. Also having cripple friend that somehow manages not to give up, while she herself lost her powers, must be comforting, I wonder how she will take the news, that John is mentally unstable high tier.

    Who knew Ass-lo’s words would have some impact on John. If he really cares about Seraphina then he should be protecting her with his own hands. This just sucks for that stupid green-haired chick because she’s about to get that work lol...

    It's sad that John is connecting with Sera on a deeper level based on the lie that he is powerless. On the other hand, it was pretty sweet to see Zeke get KTFO. It's always great to see John savagely beating people who deserve it with their own weapons.

    John even manages to give his punisher flex bitch mode vibes - paper bag like some ugly thot... Was nice to see Zeke getting freaked though.

    Arlo is the most growing character so far actually, maybe together with Blyke. Who knew he would actually punch John after getting his ass kicked and even obeying him at times due to fear of getting ass kicked again. And yes, he makes perfect sense and John is starting to reflect on his words.

    Zeke deserved that beat down.

    I wonder how (badly) Seraphina will react once she finds out truth about John. And he should fight back more often, instead of exploding once in a while, and going overboard.

    Yeah my dude had me heated laying hands on Zeke AFTER he watched Sera get beat down. It’s cool that John resolved himself to fight but even his clap back seemed to be just for himself...
