One of the Best Manhwa's I Read

If you one of those that hanged on into reading this series (like me) after volume 2 and beyond, you'll see that the creator has drastically improved the storyline and the character development. The manhwa started to become more better and better with each passing volume and it looks like the series will last longer than most manhwa series that I've seen up to date.

This is truly great, nothing about this is unsatisfactory (except maybe the fact that you can't get as much as you want any time you wish). The art style is very good, though not top of the line fancy drawing but still very adequate for this kind of genre. The storyline might seem shallow in the beginning but after the first chapter or so, each new event leads to some kind of plot development as well as history of either the main character or those around him. Maybe its just because I love these kinds of mystical martial art like fighting stories (blame all the asian movie flicks I've seen - I am aisian after all) but I found myself not able to stop reading until the finish.

Although you might be able to predict the outcome of each fight (somewhat) the author does not play favorite and sometimes you end up finding a character you liked dying (as sad as that is, it is better this way imo). But anyways, the whole background of the world that the author created as well as the comedy which is both frequent and great, will have you looking for more each page you turn. (This may be a glorified review, but hey, if you like this kind of martial art stuff along with some light hearted jokes in between, then this is for you).

One of the best manwha that I've ever read. It's action pack full of great fighting sequences and a good story. There's also a lot of humor that may look simple but can make you laugh a lot. The art is good too.

Manga/Manwha fans should really try reading this series its really good.

Its just really disappointing that tokyopop dropped this series *sigh*. And they should've stick with the original title. I've heard the title of this series in SK is "Majeh".

Bad, too long, too little content.

This one has too many flaws to mention, so I'll just point a few:
It tries too hard to be funny and fails miserable, I think I smirked two or three times in 15 volumes...
Characters are annoying and unlikeable, MC is an idiot both because of how he acts and thinks (most of the time at least), not to mention he's too erratic in his actions, he's just not a believable character. Also. the dialogues are terrible too, not taking itself seriously hurts this manhwa bad, this connects with the 1st point, it's all the time making bad gag jokes in the middle of serious moments or battles, not a good decision imo.
Plot is bad, on many levels and has too many holes, not to mention what happens is not enough to justify the incredible length of this manhwa. Art jumps from good to bad all the time plus the overuse of gag art-style. Last, the fights are too long for my taste, lots of dialogues and lots of stalemates till it's over in 2 moves, they are boring.

This is by far one of the most entertaining things I've read lately. With a nice balance between drama and humor. Despite the fact that I hear it's one of the more popular manhwas in Korea, I believe it should get even more love from readers outside its native country.

Like a Rollar Coaster

The manhwa is a like a rollar coaster because there were great moments and boring moments in the story. I really liked the first 100-150 chapters of the plot because it has a blend of popular shounen plot lines like Rurouni Kenshin, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Dragonball. I also liked that the main character is already overpowered because there won't be wasted chapters, but it is also a bad thing too. Some fight scenes are bland and boring as you read deeper in the manhwa.

The thing that is boring with the manhwa is that sometimes there are too much action. Many people have said this already so I'll make it quick; it has too many unnecessary fighting scenes and sometimes you can't distinguish what is happening in those panels. Another is that some arcs sucks compared to others. The current arc(Chapter 277) sucks right now because the antagonist is way overpowered.

Overall it's a little above average shounen manhwa. I read all of the chapters in a couple of days so it's pretty good. I had to stop at some moments because it got boring, so I continued after doing others things to relief my boredom. I give this an 8.4/10 because I read all the up to the recent chapters in a couple of days.
