I still like it

I like this manga. It isn't something I would usually read and have tried to begin countless times but was hooked and now I love it. I think it has a plot, though confusing as all hell sometimes, but lets face it, I think the fighting and how they portray it is new (to me at least) and for that I still enjoy it. I love the art and the characters. What else is there to love about a manga?

Chinese Wuxia & Journey to the West in Modern Seoul   
Rating: N/A

If you have ever watched Chinese martial arts or wuxia dramas, you'll understand where the fighting styles and the special abilities are coming from. Fighting with cards? No problem. God power coming out of no where? It's daily life for youxia. Mysterious sects in head shroud? It's everywhere in Jianghu.

In the beginning, even with the wuxia influence, the webcomic still makes sense. But as more chapter comes out, things just pop out of no where so randomly. I totally LOLed when the Monkey King, Sun Wukong, from Journey to the West, complete with his headpiece and pole, which btw came out from the moon, showed up. It's not that having those elements are bad, it's having them with all the other things from different worlds. Now we have wuxia x journey to the west worlds fused into one.

This webcomic has progressed to a stage where it's so ridiculous it's hilarious. Oh well, at least you'll laugh. But I wouldn't say Season 3 is as bad as some other reviewers say. I'll say it still has a plot, even though elusive. If you're not familiar with Journey to the West, you'll be confused with all the monkeys, gourd, and cow king stuff. Since I'm very familiar with it and wuxia, so it's just fun for me. Watch Journey to the West if you want to understand season 3 better. If you like GOH with all of its eclectic glories, check out some Chinese wuxia dramas. Start with Jin Yong's, and definitely Journey to the West.

Going downhill

The only thing that's gets better over time, is the artwork (In the beginning it was really bad). Outside of it, everything, i mean, everything gets way worse.

The story (if it had one), loses purpose after the High school Tournament. The author tries to keeps things fresh, throwing many new info and story elements at the reader, but the reader is overwhelmed with the amount of bloat this Manhwa becomes.

The characters are just as bad, they have no ambition, no goal, they just keeping getting stronger just for the sake of the (poor) story.

My enjoyment of the series was directly proportional to the number chapters this series had. The more it had, the less i enjoyed.

Overall i give this Manhwa a 4. Below Average. The author does indeed develop himself over the years, but unfortunately, it was just his artwork. Outside of it, you have a really bland battle Manhwa that doesn't try to differentiate itself from the many others out there, it just follows the recipe and hopes for the best.

If this wasn't a webcomic, and was serialized in a Japanese Magazine (Like Shounen Jump, Shuukan Shounen or Shounen Sunday). It would be cancelled ages ago.

I started by giving this manhwa an 8 considering the shounen genre and great art. Unfortunately, as the manhwa continues the story deteriorates. The plot jumps all over the place and it's disorientating to readers who have to wait for it to update from week to week. The characters are likable, but rather bland and generic. Although they have back stories, it feels rather cliche. A fault I find within the manhwa is that the reasons for some of the fights are incoherent and questionable at times...It draws away from the immersion of the story.
As I grew up with Journey to the West and Chinese culture, I don't think the elements within the manhwa are all that weird. :/

Wasted Potential

The concept behind the series in interesting and the art is good but there are a lot of pitfalls with the series. The main character is strong and all, but seems to have an IQ of about 10 which I find irritating. Also, the skills of the characters have just become so ridiculous and outlandish. The author is obviously pulling this stuff out of their *** in an attempt to escalate the plot. And has just become so random. After the high school fight the story sort of lost all purpose.

Another slight peeve of mine, is the anti- US sentiment. Which I wouldn't really mind if it weren't so ridiculous.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The US helping North Korea?! That plot line is just too dumb.

Honestly, this starts out really well. It seem in the beginning to have a potentially great plot and characters. But as you keeping on reading the chapters that amazingness you first saw in the beginning begins to disappear and the next thing, you know, your just reading this to read. It seems like the story is not even a coherent story anymore, but really just a bunch of really well drawn fight scenes and some cheeses parts where there is some moral lesson that appear out of no where. All in all read at your on risk. I'll keep reading till I can't take it anymore, so...

I love this manhwa! Some people complain about the plot and I get it. People drop dead and there's this weird magic. You're not sure what's going on, but that's part of the fun since you're going from the tournament fight's POV. The explanation does come later (not all of it, of course) and it blows you away. The fight scenes get better. At first I thought it was a random selection thing between the winner and the loser so that the reader doesn't completely know who's going to win or not. It could still be, but once the big plot is revealed, the tournament doesn't seem to matter. Or the author could bring it back up. Currently, it's amazing.

It's a fighting Manga

As a fighting manga, it's an easy 10/10, that is, if you judge it as a fighting manga.
If you compare it to semi-fighting ones, that are full of other garbage and nonsense (One piece, Bleach) then you will not like this, as it's not crap. It's a tournament, they fight to win, while the organizations fight in the background, if the main characters themselves have no reason to develop, they won't.

It's explained how they get stronger, so to say " characters grow stronger according to the whims of the author at a ridiculous pace" is rdiculous

Like zendashi said, it is unbelievable how this series is at the top list...The art style is sloppy but that's the least of the problem. The plot if there is actually one is all over the place, the characters are paper thin stereotypes, the dialogues seem to be written by a 12 year old that is fanwanking with his new beat em up game and their abilities are completely ludicrous. What's with the hit point and leveling system and the nanobots? how is this explained? How about the ridiculous ''special'' abilities of the characters? A guy made a pact with a ''god'' he thought up himself when he saw an advertisement mascot for f@&%sakes. Now, we have a wizard (that belongs to a supposedly official association no less) that came out of nowhere, who summons american nuclear missiles to stop an evangelion angel ripoff another character summoned out of his ass. How is ANYTHING explained really? In short it is just a bunch of people gathered at a place to beat the crap out of each other using the power of hallucinogens. Even for a dedicated action series it is plain cluster$@*& I think the author should stop playing fighting games for a while....

In the beginning I thought this would be an amazing martial arts series. But then it dwelled into the ridiculous. People fighting with cards, swords, and monsters that basically materialized out of thin air. The plot is non-existent. This series had a lot of potential. Not anymore.
