I like quite a few other said, I'm really waiting for something to happen. The Breaker was really good but only really after the first Vol. Vol 1 wasn't good but it picked up in Vol. 2. Hopefully it'll do the same. It's annoying about Shioon at the moment and hopefully that'll sort itself out. But I would still read it, I'm sticking with it 'cause I really want to know whats gonna happen. Read the Breaker and if you like that read this. I really like the way the plot is going with him not getting his power totally back but only partly and he old mindset is there too. But it's starting to look like it will have exactly the same basic plot as The Breaker.
EDIT: Yes, it's got basically the same plot. and the same, Shioon wont back down get beaten up then amazes the other guy.

This Manga Needs a Hero

Lots and lots and lots of supporting characters, but there is no hero. The mangaka made a big mistake. If he was going to go for "new" he should have had Shioon take off when Goomoonryong left. Then, he could have created an all new hero, someone the reader could identify with as he/she struggled to go from being ordinary to awesome. Shioon could have come back changed almost beyond all recognition---i.e he could have stopped being a wimp. I don't see why it was so important to keep a kid who was never that interesting to begin with.

Maybe I will just go back and re-read the first series.

I agree with chudman kronosiam.
It has been already 11 chapters and nothing is really happening. The story isn't condensed. The only thing that keeps me hanging on to the series is the fact that part1 was very good(it had a serious WOW effect), the art and fighting scenes are really superb, top of the notch.

The fascination with this manga really left me 5~7 chapters ago. The author is dragging the plot and stretching it to squeeze from the manga whatever he can. It hurts the manga and readers and the main character who dives into his sissy being.

I am afraid that the author is following Kubo Tite and will turn this into another Bleach :/

To sum up.
Art is superb.
Plot is good.
Action, plot development and character development is really lacking.

If there was more action and meaningful plot development and character development, the entire manga would be a serious candidade for an epic manga and could be remembered like Vinland Saga, Berserk, NGE, Blame! etc.

it's still pretty good, but it's kind of hard to judge that fact on the fact that only 6 chapters are currently out. It might turn out as good as the last one, or it could be crap. I'm not really happy with the art, I kind of liked that realistic and depressing art that came before. Now, its too "anime-ish" The main character hardly even resembles the original...

Is everyone currently forgetting the pill he ate? I'm sure Chunwoo didnt.
1. its increased his Ki by several hundred times to something almost = to that of the 9 arts dragon. 2. it "gave him the regenerative powers of a Planaria". which is probably the only reason why he is still alive.
Despite the fact that his Ki center was destroyed the pill is still within his blood and therefor the effects are neutralized. once it heals his body, it'll get his Ki center, then begin restoring his Ki. Chunwoo knew this and destroyed the center so the Murim would think him down and out. What would be the point of leaving him the phone with the videos of all the techniques to learn if he would make it impossible to learn and pass it down?
He knew the pill would save and restore him and all he did was save him for the Murim and buy him time.

It's pretty obvious what's going to happen, within the next 20 chaps the protag is gonna find a way to get his martial arts back and then kick ass again, face his teacher, etc etc. I don't understand why everyone is crying about him losing his power; the mangaka isn't going to let the main character remain weak for much longer.

I totally agree with chudman. The protag is now totally pathetic, the reason I like the breaker was because of the cool protag whose growth was mysteriously awesome! Now...I don't know whether to continue or stop. I'll see what happens.

Really not impressed with the plot development. As far as I can tell he ran out of ideas so he reset the protagonist to a weakling again. It's a huge step backwards for the series, really unimpressed. Will still follow hoping it might get better. At least the art is still as good as ever.

A bit too cliche currently. Almost like Kenichi. And I'm not happy about the new girl(s) because (while cute) I don't want the writer to drop Sosul as one of the main romance interest. (When she is cured.)
Also can't wait for Goomoonryong to return.

So the first 3 chapters are ok for standard shounen manga/manhwa, but not awesome as the second half of the first series. It's more like a beginning of a new series than the continuation of another. (Especially with the lame and weak protagonist.)

Have to wait some more to see how it will turn out.
