Good sequel, but it's kinda slow-paced............ I wanna see more of Chunwoo again, though it isn't quite possible I guess. The main lead gets kinda annoying, since he always happens to be in the same situation over and over again and then blaming himself for how weak he is, when people around him just wanna protect him........ yeah idk THAT gets annoying. The first part had more comical stuff in it, this one is all serious now, I guess cos Chunwoo and Shiho duo aren't seen anymore.

EDIT: SOMEONE has to clean the tags/catergories.......... I mean, there's a shitload of tags here that are so irrelevant lol.

EDIT 7/4/2013: FINALLY. FINALLY HE HAS AWAKENED AS A GOD. After 100 chapters of him getting treated like a piece of shit it is finally time for him to be treating everyone else like people who are beneath him OH MY GOD.

Starts out slow but is starting to pick up pace. It can be a bit frustrating though as Shioon never really makes any progress in permanently regaining his powers until the recent couple of chapters (hopefully).
For those who think that the series is too slow, remember that The Breaker also started off slowly and it was a monthly publication, thus New Waves would seem even slower with its weekly release of fewer pages.

The manga just completed enough of itself for you to be able to keep reading up to a point where you can feel satisfied and excited for the next chapter without the discouragement that having to wait would give you Also bad ass fights scenes that get your heart pumping like i said start reading now and you won't be able to stop until you catch up.

***old Post***
One of the things I like about New waves is that the MC levels up and overcomes his weaknesses (like in all manga ) and so do his enemies, cool guy leveled up since the last time he fought and the audience was able to see his power of analyzation a little more closely. It's interesting that the Author still portrays Shioon as learning from his master or at least growing to be able to use his master's teachings as always great fight scenes and awesome art 10/10. And for all you guys bitchin about it being slow... calm down every manga has a proper pace and if this one went faster the newly introduced characters wouldn't have time to develop and then this manga just wouldn't run well

As much as I LOVED the previous season, New Waves has been a great let down. It started off with Shioon trying to regain his balance in life after his master's departure.The beginning was good (rather slow) there was a heavy hint of Nine Arts Dragon returning, but when he did, the story line didn't change was more like a cameo :S The action scenes were pretty good but got repetitive and some situations could have been avoided without a fight. We pretty much got the point of Shioon being amazing, but every character gets stunned and impressed etc...their inner dialogue was getting on my nerves. It's been 80 chapters now, and there's nothing greatly notable while the author created wonders within 79 chapters in The Breaker :/
New Characters - 6.5/10 (I thought too many were kinda useless)
Art - 10/10 (as ever)
Story - 6.5-7/10 (I want more of 9AD!)
Can expect more in future maybe, really hoping they'd do something more with this series.

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!!
