A good manhwa   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

This is a good example of a series that doesn't bring anything new to the table, there is hardly an ounce of innovation and doesn't surprise you in any particular way yet still, it's done right, proving that storytelling and worldbuilding are just as important or more so than trying to write something completely original. Likewise, chars are good or not bad at least, there is a bit of comedy and a decent MC (in personality). Of course it only been 70 chapters and after the 100 chapter mark is where most stories start to crumble it might just be that it's just a good start. By the way, it reminds me a lot of "The Scholar's Reincarnation".
To sum up the main pros and cons so far:

-story progresses a bit too fast, sometimes it feels like it skips explaining stuff to favour a fast pace.

-Consistent and coherent for the most part (so far), something rarely seen in this genre. The main char's actions actually make sense.
-No magic power-ups and random super lucky things. Yes, he does get those but from his knowledge and actively looking for them, a completely different proposition.
-Interesting characters, both main and secondary, and MC is neither a goody two shoes nor an amoral piece of sh**.
-Even if the MC is reliving his life he's not an all knowing god who remembers everything he ever reads (aka Tales of Demons and Gods), he needs to go find skill books for example and is liable to forgetting things thus he knows from the start that he being human, his memory and knowledge have a limit, likewise there are lot's of things he can't do so the author instead of making the MC magically learn those things he recruits the helps of those able to do them; it sounds so obvious yet almost no wuxia or xiaxia does that...
-Events change from his past given his intervention and this is taken into consideration by both author and MC for a change.

-Politics are interesting thou feel over simplified.

Hwa-san in this case isn't a volcano, 'hwa' in this case means flower or bloom its blatantly obvious with all that blossom on its cover pages and sleeves of the members uniform. Its definitely something easily mistaken without given context as with alot of other korean words without proper spacing that can translate into all sorts of stuff.

Literally in korean it would be 'flower mountain past life' each word read as a seperate word is also why it was written downwards like hanja on purpose to be read that way.

After you have read one or two of these type of manhwa it feels like you have read them all but Volcanic Age is actually one done right and hats off to the author. In my opinion what the strongest point of this story is the pacing and we?re only 40 some chapters in. Usually most of these stories take ages for the plot to advance cause authors want to spend the first 50 to 60 chapters having the MC cultivate without any true movement in the plot but for chapter 1 of this manhwa you could tell this author had a proper direction and hasn?t deviated from it. The one flaw I would say this has is it doesn?t really have a strong cast of memorable characters outside of the MC but it?s still early so that judgement is probably premature....

Less than forty chapters have been released, which is a pretty small number for fantasy webtoons. That said, my current impression of the story is fantastic.

He is overpowered, but not too much. The manhwaga makes it a point to say he is not in fact a "genius", but instead very well-equipped with decades of experience and knowledge. And even that experience and knowledge was gained in a rather sensible way during his unimpressive first life (at least in comparison to other stories of this genre).

There also haven't been any needlessly repetitive displays of genius, like the kind the more obnoxious reincarnation/time travel stories tend to shove in your face.

Further, while I am curious about his family, his relationship with his master is heart-warming, and it helps to shape both him and his master as empathetic characters.

The female characterization, from what little I've seen so far, has also been pretty great. There haven't been any ridiculous body proportions, or sexist caricaturizations of personality/skill. (Though, obviously, there are signs of Gender Roles, but that's to-be-expected.)

To top it off, the main character is just likable. He's level-headed, caring, determined, and has a decent sense of humor. He's not cruel, perverted, idiotic, arrogant, or particularly prideful, but neither is he lacking in human flaws.

It's still early in the game, but I'm liking what I'm seeing so far.

One of the best martial arts (murim) manhwa   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

one of the best murim catagory manhwas I have ever read. I am reading manga/manhwa for almost 15 years but not many attracted me this much. For some reason I find it amazing. This manhwa is fairly new. I don't know how'd the future chapters be like but at least for now I think they are good enough. If you are a lover of murim catagory manhwa like "the breaker" then I am strongly recomending you to give it a try.
