A must read! Great characters. Great story and some real good charcters... Wish i had the strength to write a good review but not needed... all you need to know that this is one of the greatest out there...
What i love about the Manhwa that ive read about so far (this and The breaker) is that these Korean guys dont play around.
Serious, heavy, stuff with humor on the side. Not shit load of Slapstick and corny dumb characters! Then again i've only read a few Manhwa so far but boot been 10/10

Fantastic tragic manga, however there really is a lot of heart wrenching moments. I find myself raging a lot when reading this manga, so while I can recognize the good work put into it, its not something I can enjoy in any peaceful way.

Amazing manhwa, definately one of the better ones out there....
I usually don't read tragedy, but after the first few chapters i got hooked on the storyline, artwork is pretty good as well and I HIGHLY recommend giving this a try, even if you aren't a fan of tragedy.

The artwork is wonderfully done and the story is not too shabby, but it's honestly longer than it should be. It takes tragedy to an absurd level by the end so much so that it's hard to take the story seriously once it's over. If you can look past that you may enjoy it. I wouldn't care to read it again.

I didn't care too much for the beginning at first, but thinking back on it now it really covered things quite nicely. To my surprise, it only got better and better. The plot envelops without any major "side-stories" that'll distract you from it, which plays a good role of keeping the reader immersed in the storyline.

Before I get into spoilers, this is one of the greatest mangas I've read. It reminds me a lot of a Gaku Miyao series called "Kazan". Yes SAO is much darker and more "mature", but I feel that it still has some of the intensity that SAO has.

Do yourself a favor and check this series out. It has some of the longest chapters ever, but each page is VERY entertaining. I give you my word on that.

Shin Angyo Onshi has a dark mood enshrounding it all the way until the
Spoiler (highlight to view)
very last chapter. The ending really supported one of the morals of the story: let the dead rest in peace. Throughout Munsu's life, he never really had a true moment of "peace." It was always plagued with tragedy, misfortune, and sorrow. But when he dies, and reunites with all his friends, he is finally at peace with those he loves.

Also, some fret about how Sando and Munsu didn't develop much of a relationship. I feel that it was the best for the story, albeit I do feel the same way. Munsu already had his girl and Sando already had her man. Both are dead, so they can partly sympathize with each other except for the fact that Munsu had to live with the curse/illness.

One thing I do feel was integrated in more was Sando's change to the dark side. Although it was pulled off quite well, I felt she was ignored for waaayyy too long. I still love the fact that her innocence pulled through in the end.

End of rant. I love this series. I feel that it is one of the few that I'll be able to re-read...seeing as how I want to re-read 10 minutes after finishing the series lol.

The characters are wonderfully developed and with wonderful personalities created. The main character started off as a nonchalant ass, but his background story is one that I will never forget. I'm a sucker for charismatic guys and this one simply oozes with charisma.
The antagonist is one that you will never understand. You can never really predict him and his actions.

The best thing about the manhwa is that you will feel the story right through your bones.

I'm totally speechless.. This manga is great in many aspects. I love the drawing. The only drawback for me was...
Spoiler (highlight to view)
obviously his death.. but now that I think it over, it turned out rather nicely. All his comrades that died were with him in heaven. I just wished he and his sando had more chemistry but i guess it was never meant to be..Overall GREAT MANGA! holy mother of god! i can't believe i read through all 17 volumes! Read it! It's definitely something you don't want to miss!

Shin Angyo Onshi is a tragic tale, so be prepared for some heart-wrenching moments, twists, and turns. The protagonist is a nonchalant kind of guy but is unusual in that he is not the warm-hearted good guy you'd find in other manga. The primary antagonist is very easy to dislike, especially as the story progresses. You never seem to know what he is thinking.

The art style is unique; I've never read a manga that looks like this. It gets quite gory at times, especially in the big battles, but they're all drawn with meticulous attention to detail. Also, as an fyi, there is an actual rape(emphasis on'll understand) late in the story, which I found disgusting and distasteful. Rape is terrible, so I'm docking a point for it. I wish it wouldn't be incorporated into stories, but I suppose this is a tragic tale to begin with >_>

Aside from that, its a tense, gripping read that I'd recommend.

and that is the word I use for the ending itself. SERIOUSLY. You just have to read this manhwa just to get to the end. It is really epic and I have not seen such a powerful ending in a long long time and I won't really forget it easily. Highly recommended for the amazing story and equally gratifying art. Even if you hate historical manga (like me) don't worry, it actually disguises it in a way that everyone will read it.

I have read many manga's and I have been impressed before. However this manga is what truly made me remember why i read manga. That is to be taken away to another world and honestly be astonished and amazed.

This manga takes you on a journey like no other. The story involved in this manga is wonderfully thought out. Everything flows perfectly at the right time just when you need it. You can tell the amount of time spent planning and putting together a story, as intricate and beautiful as this one, is very long. The story seriously pulls you into another world. The connection you have with this manga is story. You will feel every emotion from complete bliss to agonizing sorrow as the plot unfolds. This manga takes you on a psychological trip, where you will question right or wrong, or ever your very existence. This manga goes through many morals, just what exactly makes us human will be questioned. You will tear, you will laugh, you will hope, you will be shocked simply put you will feel attached to the manga.

The way this manga presents itself is beautiful. The artwork is wonderful. Though there are times when something gruesome happens (to be honest there were a few scenes, very few, which were disturbing so please keep that in mind) it adds to the story and characters. Even though it may seem repulsive at times, the amount of beauty in the other scenes more than enough makes soothes your mind. The art captures the essence of the characters and their situations perfectly. It perfectly adjust to the situation at hand. If there is something funny, they look hilarious, and when something serious comes up the art hits the spot in getting the detail in every panel. Simply put, this manga is visually is marvelous.

The characters in this manga, wow, I can't really talk about. Every character was so great in their own way. Each character has their own back story which is so deep that they could have their own manga's if they wanted too. When the story continues you will realize the importance of each and every character. The lead Munsu is wonderful. He appears cruel and heartless, however.... READ to find out. I really just want to talk endlessly about every character in this manga but i do not have the time. I absolutely cared for every character.

All in all, this manga will shock and awe, astonish and amaze, and bring you to a world you wouldn't believe. Shin Angyo Onshi will inspire many. It hits everything perfectly. I have given out 10's before, but this manga is one where I believe truly deserves this 10. This manga is special. (After finishing reading I went out and bought all 17 volumes!) I wish i could go on forever and try to tell everyone in the world how amazing this manga is but that is impossible. I know I will never read any other manga as great as Shin Angyo Onshi. So I end by saying this is an absolutely, positively the best manga, that every person should pick up and read. I recommend this to anyone so please read this manga and take yourself through an amazing journey.
