Why should a trigger warning be a negative. Just put a sticker on it. It should pull the score up or down. It just is.

I'm assuming something here got lost in translation (how do you sticker a digital piece?), but the negative column has always been used to mention portions that might not be palatable for some readers, especially as more than a few people admit to skipping the majority of the review and jumping straight to the scoring portion.

Also, while I appreciate that this book got published, I think the line where the protagonist escapes from her hypothetically dismal end by equating abuse with love is so WTF for me that it would just completely override any other positives I might otherwise get out of it.

Not bad, i am glad that this Manhwa is being reported to ANN, even though this site is anime and Japanese culture-related sites, but i wonder ANN could review about this Korean comic. I think ANN is slowy changing into East Asian sites (Korea's K-pop, K-Drama, Webtoon, etc) than just being an Japan-only news.

I didn't see any "Trigger Warning" in the article. If there was one, it must have been removed. Which is a good thing, since the article itself quite clearly states what kind of content is in the graphic novel.

The article was quite informative and makes the GN seem interesting. Only problem for me is I am not a fan of the artwork. Others should have no problem with that.

Nope, I didn't put one in - I try not to unless the content itself doesn't allow for a discussion of it without spoilers.

I actually had a bit of trouble with the art myself, but it suits the tone of the story very well.
