Lookism is one of the manhwas which has consistently supported its fandom by providing a good story along the line, hence it’s no wonder that readers are expecting a Lookism anime adaptation soon.
Lookism mostly focuses on high-school students who engage in fights for various reasons – fun, revenge, showing off, or other. Along with a grand scheme of events happening, it surely shows some moments of kindness that melt away the heart.
One of the main specialties of the story is that it deals with the reality of the standards of living in Korea. It definitely has shown the worst side of life that is never brought to light. This manhwa is the closest to which a story has depicted reality.
Properly dealing with the backstory and interaction between characters, action scenes that turn brutal, and some funny scenes that ease away the tension – make the story a great read.
Although there are continuous fights happening, knowing the back story makes their actions more meaningful which appeals to the audience.
As a manhwa that has been serializing for a long time, the story has wonderfully developed and can truly be called a masterpiece.
Will There Be A Lookism Anime?
Lookism was created in 2014 by former Ulzaang and author Taejoon Park. It was officially released in 2017 In English and other languages on the Line Webtoon App.
It currently has 400+ chapters and a huge fandom who are eagerly waiting for an anime release. Lookism has been rated 9.78 on the official Webtoon app and has 593.8 million readers on the official app alone.
Lookism manhwa was popular enough to receive a game devised on the story licensed by the Kakao Page. The game had some great animation effects for its card skills and it is still famous to this day.
Lookism has numerous side stories going on between the main plot of the story. So it’ll be interesting if the manhwa is animated either way – a tight action sequence anime plot or an anime with filler episodes in between.
In all, the story makes up for a brilliant choice to get adapted.

Lookism Season 1 Plot
What if a person who is bullied regularly for being short, overweight, and unattractive gains a perfect body suddenly? Lookism follows the story of a boy named Daniel or Park Hyung Suk who somewhat resembles an ugly duckling.
Even though the story starts with Daniel getting bullied, the plot kicks off when he changes to school and gets enrolled in Jae Won High School in Seoul. He gradually meets people and gains friends along the way who support him through his adventures.
Using the perfect body to his advantage, he eventually lets go of his thoughts about looks and embraces his real body as well. But things turn upside down, as they seem to get connected to the bigger scene.
With gang fights happening, old acquaintances meet again which does not turn out to be great. Persevering through each hardship with a strong will, everyone strives to make their lives better.
Gaining allies and forming enemies, Daniel and his friends continue to fight to protect themselves while also looking out for danger.
But Daniel still could not solve the mystery of his two bodies even though he got clues. Is someone purposely keeping it hidden or the secret will reveal itself in a time of utmost danger?
The story wonderfully wraps up the experiences that both bodies have every day and even how they feel. Surely, there is never a dull moment when there’s such a wide variety of characters who are continuously stealing the spotlight from the protagonist.
Surely, Lookism Season 1 anime will be announced very soon and we will keep you updated on its recent details. So stay tuned for all the latest anime news.
