BackgroundunORDINARY originally started as drawings of two individuals fighting over a slice of cake in a cafeteria while a bystander watches in disbelief and swears in anger (this became the premise of the Prologue). These drawings would later evolve into the Webcomic series you see and read today.
Initially posted on first chapter was released on the 24th May, 2016. New episodes of the series were released every Tuesday, but has changed since the release of Chapter 15 (see "Update Frequency" Section)., it was featured on LINE Webtoon's before becoming a full-fledged series. The

unORDINARY follows the life of John Doe, a male teenager attending Wellston Private High School, a prestigious school where everyone possesses special powers. Due to him not possessing any powers John gets attacked by others on a daily basis. He encounters a girl named Seraphina who attacks him over the school's chocolate cake, though they eventually become friends. However John has a dark secret that nobody knows about, and it turns out life in a school full of powerful students isn't easy with threats and conspiracies around every corner.
Similar to the popular shōnen manga and anime series My Hero Academia, unOrdinary is set in a world where humans have Abilities, which are superpowers, and those who are Low-Tiers (weak) or powerless (called the slur "cripple") are relentlessly bullied by those who are more powerful. This basic premise is used to tell a message about society.
Following the prologue new chapters of the series used to come out weekly on Tuesday, but this has since changed to every Wednesday after the release of Chapter 15. Though it will take longer if Uru-chan is going on vacation or other real life matters.
