What THE BREAKER was missing

It's like the other half of The Breaker that was missing, if you liked both parts of the breaker series you'll probably like this. The basic master disciple set up is very reminiscent of each other(foils of each other). The is a lot missing though, especially in terms of likeability for the main character, and it was horribly rush at the end with only vague promises of a sequel. But all in all it's not a waste of time.

I'll confess, i'm writing this...apparently 962 days after the last release. But I have a pretty clear memory for me to write a little comment here.

The manhwaga was very unsuccessful with this manhwa in korea and had to work two jobs to support himself. Despite his attempt to leave the end open, we definitely won't be seeing more of this.

It's a real shame that this series was hurried to an end. The last few volumes show a visible degradation in quality, with one character being pushed into a comic-relief role, other characters being rushed in their development, the final motive not entirely coming from nowhere (it'd been suspected by many, kind of), but definitely NOT fitting the atmosphere of the series.

When I first read this series, it was awesome. The Breaker-tier (part 1, that is). The last few volumes are still good, though. A good comparison would be The Breaker: New Waves, though I think New Waves is better simply I expected more from Veritas.

If you wanna read some Action, Fighting, no fanservice, "boobs all over the place" stuff, here you go. First of all, I'm quite pissed off since almost every MC's fighting reason is to Protect someone. but here comes Gangryong that wants Revenge and getting Stronger just for the sake of it.The Artwork is pretty good too, so here are ++ points.
For those who read/are reading Kenichi or The Breaker or its sequel, its quite alike but without NEVER-ending cliffhangers and fanservice stuff. Shorter too.
IF there's a sequel, but from what I've researched its about 2yrs or 3 since the end of Veritas, it will be EPIC and I'm certainly looking forward to it. Just have hope, it might come sometime (Berserk fans know what I'm talking about)

This manhwa was good at first but it went downhill for me. They manga is about a cocky guy who likes to fight, which was a plus for me because he is not the typical shy kind of character.

As you read the manhwa, around the middle of the manhwa it starts going downhill for me because it got less and less exciting. The protagonist is the kind of character who gets stronger every time he loses a fight. It started to get repetitive and later on it doesn't even show him much in the later half of the manhwa.

It seems like the author lost interest with his work. Spoilers!!!!! Don't read if you do not want to get spoiled
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The main antagonist of the manga is a girl(forgot her name) and she suddenly kills all of the people that previously fought the protagonist. The author killed all the characters like it was nothing and the ending sucked. The ending was obvious open ended because there is suppose to be a sequel, but there will not be a sequel because I like i said about the author; he seems like he lost interest with the manhwa.

The ending is a failure because there will not be sequel. The manhwa ended up as an open ending because there is suppose to be a sequel for it, but don't count on it. It does not seem like the author is planning to write a sequel anytime soon or writing one at all.

Overall I liked for about the first half but later on it went downhill for me.

I started reading this because I just finished with the latest chapter of The Breaker:New Wave.

Honestly I'm not really enjoying it... as much as I thought it would.
I just don't like the main guy that much.... sigh. he's cocky as f***.
It's so irritating.

This is and always will be one of my favorite mangas! The story is very intricate and it draws you in. You begin to love the characters and the fights are amazing. The women can be a bit ecchi sometimes but its not really a big deal.

The premise is more about fictional style martial arts with fireballs and whatever actually existed. It's somewhat realistic until you realize that these types of martial arts must have always existed. In which case, people should already have a better understanding of them. Unless Korea in this is special and it's the only one that ever had such arts(which doesn't make sense to me).

Other aspects don't make sense despite it. Like the brutality of it is inexplicable. You'd have all sorts of laws being broken, at a large scale. fact is you can't just say the government is in on it because things don't work that way. The police have a sort of independance, the fbi has a sort of independance from the military if they see a crime going on.

Another critique is that it all happens within this limited boarding school environment. The art is good but the women are kinda all ridiculously big breasted. Another odd thing is that there already seems to be a martial art that's beyond any other in terms of power(with about two others that are almost as strong).

Overall I don't think this is a bad manga, but I don't particularly like it. It is interesting to see a world where people treat these fictional abilities as real, studying them and trying to make the best of it. But it's doesn't match things are and were done with martial arts(or any other skill). Scientist wouldn't need to use these methods to study them. And this would be needless even if its all just research. These things are skills but skills have a varied use, and in militaries, people are taught these uses to fill roles. Like bomb disposal, and inflitration ect. All the fighting the students do would be unnecessary if a skill is useful.

The whole veritas isn't any different than usual, people usually have different reasons in any story. that aside, some of the nonsensical-ness(not all) might be lessen if you view these people as gangsters or maybe assassins(though they aren't. Honestly martial arts have never worked that way overall, while some house styles were passed down, fact is that they were used to wage war. having few people able to do that doesn't defend a nation.

Still, I want to give this manhwa some leeway because it is interesting, and while it doesn't start well told, it definitely matures as it goes along. So the way these people act makes more sense in a gangster sensibility context(of families,groups ect). Though in a school type of setting for research it certainly doesn't. So just think of it like all these gangster-like groups thought it was a good idea to send all their kids to this school(to maybe unite them, or supplant them), but they still have hostilities. Course, doesn't make sense to have them fight unless it's just a bloodsport to let them kill each other. The whole research angle falls apart and didn't make sense in the way it was executed. Though a manga about fictional martial arts being treated with realistic scientific interest sounds... well interesting.

I'd like to comment on the character's principles clashing against the other. On the perspective of their personal truths, the story creates no evil or good characters, but personalities doing in every way they can to fight for their own veritas. Even the main character is one you'd rarely see in typical action/martial arts characters.

to me, in the begining it was great all the way to chapter 77 after that the author just bust a 180 on the story line and just rushed and ending from there.but i guess i still recommend this manga because it had great art and action but man what a waste of an awesome manga with so much potential i hate when they axed really great a series like this and ruin it. Damn this is why i dont watch series that have been axed at one point

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
i mainly hated how the author just killed off the school and half the side characters like they werent shit just to end the series wtf MAN?/!! also Vera...... that supid bitch!!!! i hope she get her ass kicked by the main character and if not by him then by her big sister (even though shes an evil bitch too) and then i hope she burns in hell for what she did, damn the author needs to make a sequel already

Hmmm... I'm surprised something like this can come out so well in a manwha. It's weirdly realistic in such a way that it's almost frightening. I have to say, I was not expecting what happened at the end. Completely left me speechless. So many emotions.

I'm pleased to say that I was completely bewitched by the characters. The beauty of the girl characters was sublime (REALLY nice proportions too) , and the boy's muscles weren't overbearing but "tough". In fact, this puts a massive emphasis on technique and endurance. And I loved how they were were twisted.

I think the characters, themselves are really important in the development of the plot because, although the plot is good, the characters are definitely the FORTE of Veritas. You want to see what he or she can do next or will do. These characters grow mentally and physically at an alarming rate, but it doesn't seem sudden or rushed. Would've liked to see more of gangryong though.

The ferocity of the fights were mouth watering. I couldn't even begin to imagine martial arts was such a wicked world. Usually you see blood going everywhere, but never realize the reality of someone getting hurt or dying. I'm quite astounded the author managed to instill the reality of fighting into something which is, let's face it, fantasy.

The plot is really well thought of, very clever, but also intriguing. I think many of the things said towards the end and the discoveries are a MASSIVE boost for the next part. Possibly the only downside is the shortness. I agree with the many people who say this could have been developped further, probably so we can get attached more to the characters. I think this would have had more of an impact in the last scenes. Plus we don't always have enough time to get a feel for the relationships, again something which could have affected the last scenes favourably.

Overall, AMAZING, sucks about the title though.... don't think it really had its place in the story...could've done without... plus Veritas means Truth/Honesty therefore... I think it was a last minute title!
