For Talia Tourriol, writing Season 2 of Z United was a true journey back in time, revisiting her own adolescence. She explains, “It was like diving back into my teenage years“, highlighting how this period of her life influenced her writing. To fuel her imagination, Talia revisited her school memories, her moments playing club football, and interactions with her friends. She didn’t hesitate to draw from various sources to enrich her story. Her brother, a football player, helped by sharing typical locker room chants, while a friend provided imitations of sports commentators to make her dialogues more lively. Football mangas like Captain Tsubasa and Angel Voice also served as a valuable source of inspiration for the match scenes. Talia TOURRIOL, author of Z United. One of Talia’s biggest challenges was to portray the sports scenes clearly and engagingly. For someone used to focusing on the characters’ emotions and relationships, this task proved complex. She confides, “The sports scenes were difficult to write because you need to understand what happens in an action to break it down into panels while making it explicit and understandable.“ Season 2 begins on a dramatic note with significant changes within the team. Majid and coach Adrien leave Z United, forcing Hugo to take over the team’s leadership. Simultaneously, the characters face the challenges of starting high school, a pivotal period that marks their progression toward adulthood. Hugo must learn to manage the team and assert himself, while Sacha breaks away from parental expectations to pursue his own dreams. Majid discovers the importance of focusing on himself. On the other hand, Laura and Geoffrey experience more tumultuous times, reflecting the complexities of adolescence. Extract from the Z United webtoon. The romance elements are also well integrated into the main plot. The deep friendship between Hugo and Sacha naturally evolves into a romantic relationship, while Laura navigates her feelings between Majid and Geoffrey. According to Talia, “Friendship is also a form of love“, facilitating the integration of these stories into the webtoon. Fans’ reactions have been mixed. Some appreciated the characters’ development, while others missed the sports action. Although Talia had completed the season’s writing before publication, she took note of the feedback to potentially adjust future stories. She used cliffhangers to maintain readers’ interest, creating suspense at the end of each episode. The collaboration with illustrator Albert Carreres was particularly enriching. Talia had to adapt her writing style to communicate effectively with him, often using sketches or screenshots to illustrate her ideas. Albert added significant value with his detailed sketches and creative perspectives, especially in the football scenes where the action was particularly dynamic. Z United continues to convey strong messages of solidarity and friendship. Despite tensions and challenges, the characters remain united, illustrating the power of camaraderie and teamwork. In conclusion, Z United Season 2 offers a rich and authentic exploration of the challenges of adolescence, relationships, and personal growth.

Exclusive interview with the creative team behind Gloria and the Spurls

Today we have the pleasure of talking to Zak Khali, author of the innovative webnovel Gloria and the Spurls. Zakaria will be representing the entire creative team behind the series, including project creators Stephan Boschat and Gloria Jensen. This captivating series is brought to life by a talented group of creators and writers who have combined their skills to create a unique reading experience. Let’s dive into our conversation with Zak Khali to learn more about this extraordinary project. The webnovel team Project Creators: Stephan BOSCHAT & Gloria JENSENWebnovelist: Zak KHALIContent Review: Stephan BOSCHAT & Gloria JENSENLiterary control: Angélique DAMMEKENSProofreading: Catherine YAN Interview with Zak KHALI Could you start by defining in a few words what a Spurl is? Zak Khali: A spurl is an imaginary creature whose purpose is to help the person it accompanies on their journey of self-discovery. Is this webnovel a critique? If so, to whom is it addressed? Zak Khali: This webnovel is not a critique. It’s more of a call for introspection and reflection. The goal is to show that change is possible, but often, such change must come from within, no matter how challenging that may be. Are there other Spurls who will appear in the story? Zak Khali: Yes, other Spurls will make their appearance as the story progresses. How can readers relate to Gloria? Zak Khali: Gloria is an ordinary person. She has dreams and passions that she struggles to pursue because she is trapped in a situation that eventually leads to burnout. I think countless people have experienced similar circumstances. Gloria doesn’t have magical powers or extraordinary abilities. She’s a 27-year-old woman who discovers little imaginary creatures that help her gain clarity in her life and work out how she wants to change things. The spurls add an element of fantasy, but the essence of the story is that we all have the ability to break free from the constraints we find ourselves in and find our purpose in life. How would you describe the tone and atmosphere of the series and how do they contribute to the overall experience for the reader? Zak Khali: I would describe the tone of the series as contemplative or dreamlike. Rather than experiencing fast-paced adventures in the real world, Gloria lives them in her mind, accompanied by the Spurls. She discovers herself through worlds that reflect what she has lived or will live. Each of these worlds has its own symbolism. By injecting this touch of imagination into the story, we aim to entertain the reader while encouraging them to see things from a different perspective. What do you think is the most important message of this webnovel? Zak Khali: For me, the main message of the webnovel is that each of us is the creator of our own happiness. That doesn’t mean it’s an easy process. It takes patience and a willingness to accept certain truths about yourself in order to move forward and achieve your goals. Finally, is there a second season planned for this webnovel? Can you give us a preview of what readers can expect in the next season of Gloria and the Spurls? Zak Khali: Yes, a second season is planned. All I can say is that Gloria is still full of surprises and has much to discover about her purpose in life. But the Spurls will be there to lend her a hand… A big thank you to Zak Khali and the entire team behind Gloria and the Spurls for sharing their insights and for their dedication to bringing this enchanting webnovel to life. Stay tuned for more magical moments with Gloria and her Spurls, and if you haven’t read it yet, this captivating series is available on the digital platform Neovel.
