Lovely Art. Retarded everything else.

The best part of this manga is by far the art.
The manga started of well when we could sympathize with the MC. However its become tedious how the author keeps finding ways to keep under powering the MC. With all the MCs supposed dedication and innate power he has yet to beat anyone besides lackeys. In fact he has not even put a decent fight against against anyone even remotely strong. Getting beaten to a pulp but surviving does not count as a good fight. Its the same shit over and over again. at least the prequel showed some growth in the MC. New Waves is lame as hell.

i enjoy i feel it is sometimes drawn out battles but whatever doesn't bother me that much also i do like how it goes more i depth into the murim world than the prequel which i like. A lot slower compared to the prequel and until i see the end of the breaker new waves i will not say which i better.

I mostly hate strong willed protaginest because the reason there strong willed is for protecting their friends now i don't mind that but when that is their only reason and there god damn catch phrase i will protect my freinds is boring. But with Shi-woon it is diffrent he protects his friends but he isn't strong willed because of that, his master gave him advice to turn from a coward into never giving up character even if it isn't for is friends and just for pride and honor."SPOILER" Like when he challenged ghostly doc because he was protecting the pride and honor of sunwoo.

I really like Breaker and NW, even if they are pretty much generic martial arts manhwa. Shioon is a pretty lovable character. Something that I've always thought was odd though, was that the black-haired-pretty-boy (forgot his name ._.) has had like a hard on for Shioon or something ever since The Breaker, he always blushes when he sees him fight or when he's talking about him >w>. Though you yaoi haters will probably say it's just 'respect'...but the world is different from a fangirl's perspective d:

Since we're finally learning about why Goomoonryong went psycho, I don't see a point to continue it much after that, except for So-Sul to come back and do whatever it is she does. Though I want Shioon to stay clan head :|

Response to sakirols post:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
What was the original plan that Goomoonryong and Shiho had in the prequel?
Shi-Ho: As part of black forest she opposes the (then) current murim world/laws. She also seems to act on a whim, a lot based around her feelings for Chun-Woo.
Goomonryong: Same black defense associations, related to what happened to his master. He was in hiding in the beginning.

What happened to the previous head of Sunwoo?
Its So-Sul, the young girl with the illness. She was held hostage for blackmail.

They keep hinting at a rivalry between shioon and the pretty black-haired kid, but it never freaking develops.
Well, it does develop. Its not really a rivalry though.

What's with Shioon's trail-on romance developments?
Just fillout at the moment.

I recommend that you re-read the manhwa or check out its wiki. Most of your questions relate to the basics of the plot.

New Waves is a tedious read compared to its prequel with very little new development. There are tons of fights and tons of new characters, but even 161 chapters into New Waves, there's almost no depth to the plot. Moreover, the plot holes left by the previous series still aren't filled in.

The Breaker, hands down, was a good story. However, the author seems to enjoy milking the series now instead of actually making a sequel.

If you enjoyed The Breaker for its story, do not read this.

Doesn't strike me as anything supper original, intense or whatever... smile Means, no way do I consider this somehow special or superior to anything. Art is good, other than that - meritocracy... embarrassed But why da hell do people read manga? Reasons my by many, but I will shamelessly put them in one bag - to get entertained. Did I got entertained by reading this? Oh yes I did. Mission accomplished, Breaker, have my 10 and live strong!

This is one of the BEST among all the manhwa and manga I've ever read! Seriously! It's very exciting~ <3
I agree that it becomes slow sometimes, however, in hindsight I think those slow chapters are very significant to the overall story
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Like in Shioon's kidnapping, Sera's opportunity to help Shioon and Shioon's opportunity to fulfill his promise to Sera fleshes out their relationship--It makes so much sense now why someone like Sera helps Shioon

The story is fleshed out very well. And the art is fantastic! Again one of the best!

Well i re-read it again in freakin' 3 days until this point. It's surprising how good it can be and how forceful to read it can be. U want more, more and more. Non the less there is simple difference between first part and second part. That is even better artwork, good story, super quality fights and overall great use of techinques. I mean in every manga user of techinque usually shouts out the name, but here actually other characters are explaining in mid fight and story. This is suprsing but actually very welcomed feat of manga. I love it simply said that. For here and there we learn some history, but it's not overflowing with flashbacks. Overall good thing to read so i recommend it to every one who loves fighting, some harem but not overbearing. I didn't find surprising that main protagonist has 3 or 4 girls who are into him and he is actually clueless about it. Although i never got a vibe that Sae-hee is actually into him and less vibes that he sees her as GF afterall. Shi-woon is indeed curious but very principal and explosive character. Unlike Naruto, he is more decisive and has completely his resolve where he stands. He knows what he wants.

Finally dropping this after almost 60 chapters. As much as I loved the original series, I can't bring myself to continue reading.

The reason was mainly because the Shioon that I loved from the first season was no where to be found, and was instead replaced by an exaggerated version of himself that turned my favourite aspects of his character into some of my least. For example, while I enjoyed his determination and idealism in The Breaker (they were what made him so unique and likeable), these traits gradually became what made him annoying and generic, as they devolved into and festered as what I can only describe as idiocy. And he's never adequately called out on it.

But, despite that, I was still hanging in there for the desire to see how the plot develops. Except, it doesn't. Well, to be fair, things do happen and the plot does develop somewhat, but it's slow - almost painfully so. However, I get that; sometimes, it's necessary for creating more cohesive plots and therefore better stories. But knowing this doesn't change how the slow pacing served to do none of the above - especially when some essential areas of the storyline that should have been developed more slowly and thoroughly, were either needlessly rushed or overlooked, while others that could have been sped up were drawn out pointlessly for the sake of introducing unnecessary details.

In a similar esteem, I'd say the way information and new characters were presented was mediocre at best. Now, don't get me wrong: I liked some of the new characters and nothing was all that confusing. No, but the way everything is shown makes the story annoying to read, in that it not only disrupts the pacing, but also complicates the chapters in such a way that it distances the reader from the story.

Plus, Shioon's little harem is starting to get irritating, especially when better romantic dynamics for the females can be found with other male characters - but that's a relatively minor issue.

Sigh. Maybe I'll pick this up again when I have nothing else better to do. But until then, I'm giving it a 5.
