Description
The new English teacher, Chun-Woo, is not your ordinary teacher. Shioon, a victim of constant bullying, unexpectedly witnesses Chun-Woo's fighting prowess, and begs him to make him his disciple. Chun-Woo claims he can teach Shioon only if he is truly determined, and Shioon must put his life on the line to prove it. It turns out, however, that Chun-Woo and his powers are more than meets the eye. Shioon makes a grand entrance into the Murim (the hidden world of martial arts), and he is about to be taught by the best there is!

The Breaker series has 2 parts, of which "The Breaker" is Part 1 (vol 1-10) and "The Breaker: New Waves" is Part 2 (on-going).

Good Art, Bad Story   
Rating: 2.0 / 10.0

I love manwha. I love action. I love romance. I love fighting. I love a strong character. This manwha had all of these.

But I did NOT like it. The main character is weak. He doesn't really get stronger, other than normal shounen power ups. He cries a lot, something I can't stand in main characters. The romance was thrown randomly in my face; there was no true build up to it.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The man in the romance was a pervert, trying to get laid throughout 9/10ths of the story, and suddenly he has lots of feelings for the girl who was hitting on him? Huh?


Actually there's no real development anywhere in this manwha. There's some plot movement, but it too was a little out there and to be honest I didn't quite understand the last part of the story. Then again I had no love for the characters, they were all one-dimensional.

I read this because so many raved and raved about it. I read it to the end hoping it would redeem itself. Nope. For me the only good thing about this story was the art.

Who voted Character Growth?

wth? I read this and it had not a shred of believable character growth.

Unless, you're talking about super saiyan power ups, which is physical growth---and is disgustingly cheesy since the dawn of Dragonball Z

Also, the romance was not believable in any way for me. it was no more than teenage lust... and when you pair teenage lust with so-called chivalry.... *barf*

Be Warned, Very Slow Start

For those of you that are considering reading this manhwa, I suggest you read a summary for Volumes 1-4, then start reading from Volume 5 onwards. At Volume 5 is where the plot picks up and the action starts. Volumes 1-4 basically consists of minor details about the plot with a few major ones here and there, but it's definitely not worth the read. If you end up liking it after reading V5-10 and want to know more, then go back and skim through. Trust me, it'll save you a lot of time.

As for the manhwa as a whole, it's okay. Nothing great or special about it. Kid was weak, kid gets strong, kid beats up bad guys, etc. The drawings were superb and the action scenes were great even though they were pretty nonexistent before V5. I personally liked how the author ended it with a twist (I'm not referring to the one involving the protagonist).

Skip the volumes I suggested and you'll probably like this manhwa.

The action in this series is sick. Or should I say "SICK!!!". Anyway, its a very good read. It can easily be finished in a day and should be done that way because I felt that I got the most enjoyment burning through it. The characters are pretty decent and the story never stretches too thin. Enjoyable and very much worth it.

Easily In My Top 5 ;P

While looking through the comments I noticed several people comment on the apparent instantaneous growth of Shioon and how it's too instant and unrealistic... I really think those people should reread the beginning of the manga. Shioon does not "instantly" get better, in fact, even when he finally decides to stand up for himself he still gets his ass-kicked several times before he starts improving. Not to mention the manga takes place within a month, the point is that he's a quick learner. Also any comments about too heavy an amount of fan-service, boobs, etc., are just flat out wrong. This manga handles any sexual content in it the way a seinen should, with maturity. Not once while reading this did I find the sex appeal of Shiho (the only character that is featured heavily and has sex appeal) to be "too much" or "unnecessary," whoever thinks so should read more manga cause there are an infinite number of examples of this actually being the case. Moving along, this manga is terrific, I was originally hesitant for whatever reason, I don't remember why, but when I did finally read it I was thoroughly impressed. With only 72 chapters, it is short, but what it manages to accomplish within that time is truly great, not to mention it has an equally great sequel. In addition to the great art, the battle scenes are exciting and fast-paced. You can as easily connect with Shioon's triumph and defeat as you can Goomooryong's anger and loss. Overall, counting this and The Breaker: New Waves as the same manga, this is easily in my Top 5 biggrin

Great Manga, read until Shioon's first fight before you decide if you like it bigrazz

After neglecting to read this some few years back, I started re-reading it from the start till finish because of the glowing reviews in here. But man, what's with the positive superlatives? Tricked me into picking this up again!

The story is dull and predictable. I was waiting for a damn twist! But alas, there is none. Romance is very cheesy (the creators know it so it's almost alright to forgive them but no. It is not a valid excuse to just mix in some lovey-dovey scenes in there haphazardly especially when they know that it is half-baked and sappy. It is so laughable that it makes me want to tear my heart out
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
like the 9 Dragon's master did).
Dialogues are flat. They want me to labor on reading these clichéd script when I watched Karate Kid and Kung Fu Panda already? I know I know, childish analogy but come on, who are we kidding here? Can't this manhwa just get on with the fighting already? The characters are so put out, contrived, unrelatable and showing unnecessary boobs and camel toe exposure. Am I heartless to not care for any of the characters in here? No. I've cried with the characters in varied forms of literature but this one is dastardly different. This manhwa seriously lacks character build-up that I did not care even if they'd be beaten to a pulp while spouting their holier-than-thou ideologies or end up dead in a ditch somewhere.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
When that Shiho died? Good riddance. Don't think the plot moved with or without her. Her boobs and panties missing in action is a welcome sight.
And don't tell me that Shion kid was not one dimensional. From wimpy to being ass-kicker in a month? Please. I've had enough of those green characters that it makes me want to puke whenever they don't present anything new and convincing to the plethora of THOSE kind of "transformed" characters. Where are the witty characters gone?

In sum both the plot and the characters are not to die for however the kid disciple would want you to believe otherwise.

However, the martial arts are cool to look at. Capturing each attack frame by frame was refreshing since I am kind of used to not understanding what has happened on most of the fight scenes in Blade of the Immortal.

The ending: Do you take us for a fool??! We know who is gonna win, alright? Just got to hang on for the martial art moves for the next one. God, on second thought, I don't want this sequel anymore unless there would be NO useless yapping about and dammit, not showing their naughty bits here and there would really help this thing to become a bit less shallow.

PS: How did this excuse of a plot become Seinen? Because of the boobs and panty shots? The world must be crumbling. Props to the scanlation team, though.

Story starts off slow but its starts picking up speed until the twists and action come thick and fast. The twists at the end were fantastic and really sets up well for New Waves. This was my 3rd manga after Bitter Virgin and Bleach and I've read a lot of stuff after that but I have to say it still sits in my top 5.

was misleading people, because whatever "growth" there is in this series, it's so instantaneous and without any grounds at all. Main char starts off as a wuss, and then all of a sudden is revealed to be this really talented, really simple-minded guy (simple-minded because it takes one lesson for him to get over his fear and somehow show he's got such a huge amount of "spirit").

Speechless, go read it yourself. You will not be disappointed and I have to say myself, that this is one of the best mangas. Great conclusion, there's even a sequel! The sequel doesn't suck either, its even better actually.
