Am I the only one getting frustrated with this manhwa? Don't get me wrong, I love breaker but I keep patiently waiting for something to happen!! I was so happy when it start moving after 60 chapters but then it's DEAD END once again.
It's unfortunate but I'll just drop this manwha to save me all the waiting for nothing. I really love 1st season of Breaker and read it multiple times. It's just so disappointing that the sequel fell short. I might revisit once it's completed and maybe i might regret dropping it or not.

The original The Breaker was a really good battle manga, the protagonist was a weak person at heart (Bullying and etc...) and body (No martial skills at all, etc..), and was always growing. In new waves it's like every effort he did make in the prequel didn't metter much to the story at all.

He's weaker than ever, and just in recent chapters (65+) he's trying to get his lost strength back (He wasn't very strong back then, but at least he was stronger then he is now). He was denying his progress all these past chapters, it's just frustrating to the reader.

My rating for the Original The Breaker was a solid 9, but for this series i'm giving a 6. It's a good series, better than the avarege battle manga, but there's a downgrade in quality, storytelling and art (few and far, not that the avarege reader will notice much) from the Original.

AHHHHHHHHHHH This manhwa is THE BEST action graphic novel(i say GN because it inculdes manhwa/manga/manhua etc) I have ever known nor seen!!!!!! It is like the Ocean, everytime I take a sip, it leaves me quenching for MORE! The beginning is not that action packed, but OMGGGGG later on it amazing!!! ~ch50+

Edit: I fucking hate all the bad reviews, and the people who dropped this manhwa are pitiful because:
ONE: The Breaker: New Waves isn't number one on the MU stats for being boring.
TWO: The Breaker was a monthly manhwa and Shioon was gaining power incredibly fast, and if he was to continue growing, it would have been DBZ all over again.
THREE: The Breaker: New Waves is becoming even more epic as of late (chapter ~50+) Chapter 60 is just plain awesome, and if you drop it, sucks that you won't pick it back up.

No words for this manhwa...

None of the others can even be compared to this manhwa.

OK , this manhwa is slow in the start but then has so much action from about 30 onwards which more than makes up for the previous wait. If people have read the prequel they will understand what I am talking about. The action sequences are amazing and the characters hot , with an enticing story.

Highly worth the wait but still its killing me!!

New Waves picks up right where The Breaker ended but in my opinion its just not as enthralling as the first series--its still great, don't get me wrong. The fights are all drawn very well and many of the characters are likable. The protagonist, Shi-Woon, has the kind of personality that makes you want to see him progress as much as you want him to win (kind of like a Naruto type character). The story moves along at a decent pace but it does slow down a bit at times. All together though, a manga worth following.

Got to admit the first season was unique, the second is good too
there's just the fact that every chapter ends with a cliffhang,

anyway the manhwa has a great community of fans on facebook "the breaker [manhwa]"

Oh god, this manga makes me so anxious for the next chapter, that I'm going nuts. Seriously, it almost sucks your body and soul if you start reading it.
It was a bit slow paced at the start (compared with the prequel), but is getting so awesome latelly, that I literally wait the whole week to read it...
At chapter 40+ It gets so awesome, that I simply forgot how dumb it was at the chapters 10~20 =]

Original Breaker was very good. This one seems to be slow picking up. Nothing particularly fantastic or rubbish so far except for the art, which is very good overall, but it's struggling to live up to its predecessor so far, I feel. Stay tuned though, it seems to be upping the gears from now (Ch.53) onwards.

Revision: (Ch.97) Still plodding along. Kinda average by now, one of the main draws of the original manga was the actual teacher, the Nine-Arts Dragon, and his out of control character and *his* epic fight scenes, as well as his relationship with his disciple. Now that he's out of the picture, there haven't really been as many good relationships to carry this manhwa, or much good humour as the original had.

(Chapter 104) Dropping it for now. It's so mediocre and average it's not worth it. 100+ chapters in and no improvements, no hook, no depth, Shioon stopped being likeable once Nine-Arts Dragon disappeared - those two were a great master/student duo in the original, now that it's been broken up ... meh. Plus not enough Nine-Arts Dragon. Obviously.
