With many comic physically released in the US, comic book readers have expanded into this brave new world of storytelling. The two share many similarities, with the isekai trope being popular in both Japan and Korea. However, one metaphor that has become popular with manhwa instead of manga is the returnee metaphor. With hundreds of series centered around a protagonist going back to the past, the trilogy has become oversaturated. But this new series changes all that.
The Returner Trope sees a protagonist travel back to a certain point in time in the past through magical means, usually after death. With this, the character has a chance to change their future. Stories that use this tropism vary widely, with some taking place in modern times like Mary My Husband, while other popular series like My In-Laws Are Obsessed with Me take place in the setting. medieval scene, like many reincarnated isekai anime. One thing all of these series have in common is that the main character is the one who will return. However, the new series Mother’s Marriage Contract refuses to abide by the rules.
Mother’s contract marriage turns the game back on
The mother’s contract marriage, (sometimes translated as “My mother got married again”), stands out from the rest for several reasons. First, the main character is a young girl.

Instead, her mother is the one who returns, and the reader will see how strange life can be for those around the character who returns to the past.
No longer needing to rely on the usual manhwa manga, this series quickly became one of a kind. With her mother’s sudden change from a drunken, abusive woman to a protective mother, protagonist Lyrica is confused about how to feel and tries her best to keep up with everything that’s going on. how fast it moves. Featuring artist Siya’s breathtaking art, the reader is taken on a brilliant and sometimes heartbreaking journey through a mother’s plan to keep her daughter and herself alive.
In today’s competitive manhwa world, filled with stories of revenge and despair, Mother’s Contractual Marriage is a breath of fresh air. By focusing on the person closest to the returnee instead of the returnee himself, this comic reinvented a big joke and opened up even more storytelling opportunities.
