Kwon in the house.
I can tell what will happen here.
Grandpa will lose.
If any of those two dies I'll rip all the volumes I have at home apart.
Some nine dragon arts faggot he is.
Didn't even have the nerve to look at his face when he did that strike.
I understand some Korean, which makes the premise and a lot of the things inside this manhwa really confusing for me.
For example, I gather that most phrases and names in this series are Korean derivatives of Chinese words? Since the name for pill he swallowed, for example, when pronounced in Korean sounds like Chinese.
I guess if it's a manhwa about martial arts then the Chinese influence must be strong, but still. It's a little confusing for me.
Where is it out?
Jesus, he abuses cliffhangers like they're going out of style.
Still, pretty good
have we gotten any explanation yet as to why goomangryebread is acting like a massive twat to his faggot apprentice?
it's been a while since i read this.
>I guess if it's a manhwa about martial arts then the Chinese influence must be strong, but still. It's a little confusing for me.
Because it takes lot of the elements from the Wu Xia genre, which is martial arts and it's associated elements (oriental medicine, chi, etc.) exaggerated to the point of absurdity.
Holy shit early today!
Picked back up.
He went edgy9dragon when the girl he loved died. So, he wants to get back at the thing who he thinks is responsible for her death, the martial arts alliance.
He thinks that his girlfriend is dead.
Therefore revenge against the Murim.
He probably has no idea what happened to his discipline after he made him unable to use his power. Most likely about So-Sul as well.
He's acting like a dick (I guess) to protect him or something like that.
I agree that he overreacted right now since he can't think clearly because of that black origin technique.
that fucking last page
It's amazing to me how little the author makes the plot go forward each chapter. And for the love of god will Shioon stop being such a little faggot already.
Holy shit, this chapter
>And for the love of god will Shioon stop being such a little faggot already.
Shioon is some kind of warrior masochist. His spine is normally a rubber noodle, and it only gets hard and manly when he's been beaten to a bloody pulp. Otherwise he reverts to being a spineless doormat.
Don't you do this to me faggot.
Feels like every time he gets some character development and he seems to man up he just reverts back to his spineless self in a few chapters. I get that he was bullied and all but it's been over 100 chapters already and the MC is strong enough to kick the shit out of half the planet, it just doesn't seem feasible.
Shioon got his boy pussy wet just from seeing his old master.
>the MC is strong enough to kick the shit out of half the planet, it just doesn't seem feasible.
Hasn't his new found strenght been a recent development is like the last 20 chapters or so? He was getting his ass kicked a lot up until then.
>Shioon has to avenge him
If Grandpa dies I'm done with this shit. I won't be able to deal with that, I'd prefer 9AD to die instead but that won't happen. Grandpa is going to die it's the only outcome to this unless they just escape. Fuck.
>Shioon gets a power boost to the point incapacitate his body.
>Back to where we start again him rehabbing
>Shioon still spineless
What I meant was that sure people of the Murim could kick his ass but the rest of the planet is just full of normal people that wouldn't stand a chance, strength doesn't necessarily equal confidence but come on at least give us something that doesn't result in Shioon crying like a little bitch.
Shioon is at the level where normal murim masters are fodder to him.
99% of murim is nothing to him.
If I'm to start reading this, is there a difference between the breaker and the breaker: new waves or what?
different art style, story mainly revolves around shioon's growth instead of 9AD/shioon.
The Breaker is great, New waves is pretty meh but has recently started to pick up it's pace.
Yes. The original was actually funny and good.
New Waves is the direct sequel.
The original is a lot better, though.
>different art style
Dude, it's his master. The guy who changed his fucking life for the better. Almost like an older brother figure to him. And someone he hasn't seen in quite a while.
He's allowed some emotion here.
I guess he is on the Phonenix state drug.
Except in like 2/3 of the state instead of going 3/3 berserk mode.
For some reason some people think there was a new artist for New Waves. I can't imagine where that idea started.
Teaches 9AD for being an edgy faggot and trying to run.
I always thought of him more of a father figure but all the hate on him for being emotional at this point in time is not justified.
He worships the guy, he can have a breakdown when he finds he is a murderous ass.
Well, 9ad is bassicly his father figure, his savior, and his teacher. I don't beat down on the guy if he cries a bit.
The pacing is so fucking bad. It's like reading Dragon Ball all over again.
It wasn't enough.
I was so hyped for this chapter but it wasn't enough.
GIVE ME MORE GOD DAMMIT I HAVE TO WAIT AN ENTIRE FUCKING WEEK FOR THIS SHIT
Monthly releases to weekly releases. It's obvious he cannot keep up the same amount of detail. Also I think he uses computers exclusively now for drawing this.
You got the french translated volumes or in another language?
He still isn't fully convinced his master is a murderous ass
You gotta remember, the Sunwoo were bad guys to the murim. I mean right now, old guy threatening to kill a government official for getting in his way and meaning it is justified, since that dude had just previously tried kidnapping their gaju and they're stopping this shit from hitting the fan. But in normal circumstances, this would be very very bad. The murim don't want the fact a guy like the Nine Arts Dragon can destroy a building and send the wreckage flying. They were mostly right.
The Murim isn't necessarily bad. Shioon trained with the old lady who opposed 9AD initially to learn the meditation arts. The current head of the Murim sympathizes with Shioon.
But the head of the Murim was a selfish asshole. He wants that heaven and earth technique, and he used to pretense of dishonor to exile the 9AD's teacher. Since the head of the Murim was an asshole who would kill innocent people, 9AD went with the rebels. But the rebel guys shot sniped his girlfriend to keep him on their side.
9AD will learn his girlfriend is alive, and that Shioon's blood was the only thing to get her coma body to respond. The rebel guys still have the loli Sunwoo leader, and have agents inside the Murim jeopardizing peace. So the murim, the Sunwoo, and 9AD will eventually ally themselves to take on the rebels. Murim to stop world chaos, 9AD because they shot his girlfriend, Shioon because he wants peace, and the rest of the Sunwoo to save their true princess gaju-nim.
I don't think 9ed will ever ally with the murim alliance, he hated them before they "killed" his girlfriend, they killed his master
Judging by the profuse sweating and shocked faces, he's actually really unnerved to see Shioon. I'm suspecting he's actually trying to pull some big keikaku here and is just acting like a thug, and Shioon showing up might ruin it.
The loli is going to appear?
Sure. In 30 chapters from now.
>For example, I gather that most phrases and names in this series are Korean derivatives of Chinese words?
Protip: a huge number of Korean words are of Chinese origin, even more than in Japanese.
They're going to change the Murim. The 9AD is a good guy, and a lot of the murim people are too. But the dude who was in charge of the murim the last few decades was a complete twat. The murim alliance is definately not going to be destroyed in the end, at least not permanently. The new guys are bad guys, and Nine Arts is being tricked by them. When he's about to die they'll probably betray him, then he survives due to Sunwoo's help. Shioon will be the one to change the Murim for the better.
Totally agree, 9AD just wants the world to burn except for Shioon and his girlfriend
I don't think so, the prodigy seems to beat him at the practice round
My guess for the story:
>grandpa and 9AD fights
>gov't guy shoots 9AD
>shioon gives some of his pure thingy to 9AD (like at the end of the breaker)
>9AD goes soft mode again remembering his master
What the fuck?
Did nine arts actually try to kill Shioon with that swing?
Or a better question, would Shioon be able to stop it if BADASS KWON didn't stop it in time?
Jesus, Kwon is the best.
That's not far off considering the pace of this manga.
>would Shioon be able to stop it
I think he could have, the problem here is that as far as 9AD knows Shioon should be a normal kid with broken ki center thanks to him.
Every chapter just has to end in a cliffhanger doesn't it?
How is Elder Kwon so fucking badass?
Is there no end to his awesomeness?
>implying that's not why you read The Breaker
I don't mind it. Especially since shit is going down hard right now.
What are the odds they introduce some big MMA guy near the end and he whoops everyone's ass like it ain't no thang?
And here I was hoping to see 9AD's reaction to Shioon being able to do martial arts.
But then again he did saw Shioon smash the entrance into pieces right? He should already be aware of it right?
Why is this still going on and Veritas isn't?
9AD didn't see Shioon smash the entrance. He only saw Shioon after he snapped out of Black Origin Threshold. By then, Shioon was standing right next to 9AD.
as he said, huge number of korean words are based on chinese and lots of them share with Japanese or at least incorporated during occupation.
Like 미래, 약속, 사진 for example are shared in same pronunciation with japanese counterparts. There are tons more.
Because veritas didn't have a single good character or any real plot.
I wish we could've gotten at least one arc or boss fight where Shioon wasn't a giant pussy before this giant pussy confrontation
and it doesnt help that both languages are derived from Chinese in first place.
same shit really.
>What is Island Arc for $1000?
He was still a giant pussy in that
excuse me but they are in high school, okay
and they fight, okay
Shioon is so much of a pussy I bet he'll just go back to high school after they save that loli princess. It's that kind of fucking comic
There is no justice in this world. Gangryong is an infinitely better MC
>My guess for the story:
>>grandpa and 9AD fights
>>gov't guy shoots 9AD
>>shioon gives some of his pure thingy to 9AD (like at the end of the breaker)
>>9AD goes soft mode again remembering his master
Don't really think 9AD will go soft that quickly. I mean he is the pillar of the bad guys now, if he is suddenly good again where will it go from there? I would say 9AD will get shot, his goons will help him escape. 2 episodes of Shioon crying over his master and not believing what he saw.
I just want Shioon to be happy.
I don't care who Shioon ends up with as long as it isn't that shitty childhood friend who has done nothing but get kidnapped like 3 times
Sera a Best.
This is fact.
I just want him to be more of a man, and not top fighter crybaby. The death of bearded elder was perfect moment to make him grow up, but nah. Mai sunsengnim plz.
What if he would become a man and happy?
I would accept it only if it was with Sera. Sosul works too i guess.
>and it doesnt help that both languages are derived
No both of them are from totally unrelated lineage but they've imported so much loanwords.
you sir have good taste.
She is going to win the Shioon.
Still, the government island arch was one of the best
Why does everyone keep saying "Shioon is spineless", "Shioon needs to stop being a little bitch", etc, etc? Do you guys really think confidence is just acting like an arrogant cunt 24/7? The whole point of Shioon's character is that he's an incredibly nice and loving guy with a shitload of resolve when it comes to something he cares about.
You don't have to be stoic to have a spine.
>he's an incredibly nice and loving guy with a shitload of resolve when it comes to something he cares about
The same for every shonen protagonist.
Has there anyone been raped in this manga? The art-style really give off a rapey-vibe.
What's your point exactly? I'm trying to figure out how that's relevant to what I'm saying and drawing a blank.
Not really. shonen protags are often just morons who are all about friendship, shioon is different and it feels like he genuinely cares about his friends.
Of course, he IS a shonen protag but i don't see what's so bad about him.
I liked the ultimate sharpness guy, too bad he killed himself. The guy who pretended to give up martial arts was good too.
The government guy pretty much gets raped in all his appearances in New Waves. As it should be
Not really, he only hesitated when he saw the guns and he got over that in a few seconds and when he saw the Doc which is more of a testament of his ability to judge people than anything. Island arc was him being pretty badass overall.
Poor Jenni. I hate how she feels like a background character now.
just like Smiling Blade. While they were good in the beginning, they simply match up with Elder Kwon or 9AD
Would Shioon be able to defeat that prodigy guy now? he fared quite well against him when they sparred,
He tanked his attacks when they spared without much trouble so the prodigy guy definitely won't be able to take him out in a fight. Shioon's too resilient. I don't think he's got the skills to take out Hyuk either though.
Shi Woon is too strong now. He has unlimited ki, the rebirth body, and black origin threshold. Even if someone beats the shit out of him he can just go berserk. Also he heals really fast. It's pretty overpowered. The only thing holding him back is his personality.
Now if they would only show why rebirth body is so OP would be great, or at least explain it properly.
I want Sera to have my babies
I like to think of it like Kung Fu hustle. His body is now ready, or something.
Apparently as I understand it, overhaul rebirth is the rearrangement of the body into the perfect body. I figure this would mean he has the best ki control and strongest bones and all that other shit. Combined with his unlimited ki, and apparent mastery of martial arts techniques just by seeing them, he's pretty fuckin op.
I just realized I keep reading New Waves these days simply to see Elder Kwon being a badass.
Shioon has his moments, but Kwon is top percentage.
I really would like shiwoon to just start busting niggas open. The entire series has been waiting for him to be a badass, and he really only does it a couple of times. I have a feeling its close to that point though.
Shioon never has learned martial arts just by seeing them i take it you think he learned those moves that lone wolf used against him at school, but he didnt he had practised them with that meditation tech that granny taught him, all those moves was in the phone left him by 9AD and he was learning them.
>I have a feeling its close to that point though
No, he will continue to be a whiny bitch until he dies. Or until some girl od 9D dies. Then he will go full angst in Breaker: The beginning
SUNWOO CLAN AIN'T NOTHING TO FUCK WITH!
SUNWOO CLAN AIN'T NOTHING TO FUCK WITH!
SUNWOO CLAN AIN'T NOTHING TO FUCK WITH!
SUNWOO CLAN AIN'T NOTHING TO FUCK WITH!
SUNWOO CLAN AIN'T NOTHING TO FUCK WITH!
Couldn't be bothered to find the direct pages so I'll just paste this.
Martial Arts Prodigy: Throughout the series Shi-Woon has always played the part of the underdog, never facing an opponent on equal terms. Regardless, he has shown repeatedly that he has a natural talent for Martial Arts. This was shown when he learned to use Soul-Crushing Strike in half a day and mastered it in the next few days as well as how he deduced the way Walking Techniques worked after seeing them used only once. He then progressed from playing with the basic technique to competent mastery in about 12 hours. In fact, both Chun-Woo Han and Kang-Sung have remarked that he is more than he seems. The latter even went so far as to hypothesize that Shi-Woon may too be a "dragon", just like his master. Throughout the series people who witness him fighting are unable to believe that he has been practicing martial arts for only a few months and several have flat out denied this fact saying that their information must have been false.
Have we seen the other two elders fight yet?
You must not have read the first series, Shiwoon is full of woop ass.
Shiwoon definitely has the capability to destroy some motherfuckers. Unfortunately his disposition is too nice, and the author fucking LOVES to take forever to develop to fights, and avoids the shit out of action scenes for as long as possible.
No, he is psychotic. His character is inconsistent.
>tfw he will never be as awesome as he was when running down the highway with loli
>tfw you realize shiwoon is gonna give the loli more of his steroid juice blood and shes gonna turn into some stacked as fuk blonde girl because of the cure
You must not know the meaning of psychotic, his character has actually grown really well, but yeah
seems like the stronger he gets he will try to resolve it peacefully, and the setup does take a while.
But hell, I've lived done the wait game with Gantz at the beginning of the alien invasion, I can handle this.
I just hope he stops sucking teacherdick soon, because I have a feeling this arc is going to drag on about how much he loves goomoonryong and this and that.
I want to see him punch a motherfucker
I don't Shioon is quite on his level yet, Shioon is at this point quite strong, and is probably a on par with a Grand Master in tanking damage, but despite being pretty good with learning techniques he's probably not as skilled.
This guy gets it.
They'll both become relevant once Shioon becomes head of the New Waves clan (The clan made up of all the prodigies who left the various clans/schools for reasons).
because Veritas is shit and this isn't
get mad some more
Who would win in a fight between Lightning Tiger and 9 Arts Dragon?
Doesn't LT have that bullshit ranged internal organ destroying technique? It really depends on who has first strike.
make it happen jesus
I think that was just Yuri/Vera, but he may have had it. He had the ki wall to block it for sure though.
It would be hilarious to see two martial arts masters who are pretty much the epitome of their respective series to be brought down to the level of Dark Souls backstab fishers.
I havent read veritas in a long while, all I can remember is that lightning tiger wasnt really explained much in the series.
on the other hand we know goomoonryong is OP as shit and can use all the other clans best abilities, as well as having his berserker rage mode.
I'd go with goomoonryong.
I loved the hard work + cheap tricks vs talant in veritas
can anyone recommend me a manga where the MC(or anybody) has that style?
I've read Feng Shen Ji so skip that.
My nigga. I've been thinking this for quite a while.
yes, I was about to drop the series when elder Haddock died, but Kwon is really making up for the loss
I'd say... Beelzebub maybe, though the MC doesn't use many tricks? Nothing really comes to mind as much as what happened in Veritas.
Kyou kara has a MC who uses cheap tactics.
tfw the cure is only temporary and he has to stay by her side and they end up ruling the Sunwoo together
9arts wasn't much better he saw shioon and panicked and ran away.
I would be fine if shioon is a bitch this arc if and only if he comments on the smoking
check out Holyland. loved that manga.
>Shoujo battle manga
Maybe it was printed in a shoujo magazine, but it isn't shoujo.
