The Breaker is a Korean Manwha that reads from right to left.
It follows Shi-Woon Yi and his introduction to the Murim, the world of intense martial arts. Think Dragon Ball Z for this kind of fighting. It's brutal.
As you can tell, it's really violent. It rarely gets more than blood though and stays away from anything too gory.
I am really impressed with the artwork. It is really clean but has its own, very distinct style. Like manga, manwhas seem to have a set style and The Breaker is almost a hybrid of the two. It's also filled with ridiculously gorgeously drawn characters both male and female.
And if you start reading this and dislike the main character, he does grow into it. He starts off as a high school kid getting bullied that asks to be trained in martial arts by one of the new teachers at the school
and becomes this so give him time.
The setting feels realistic to the point where the characters can punch through concrete and you'll believe it. The story is set up really well and the first portion, The Breaker, has a pretty quick pace to it. New Waves slows it down quite a bit and even though it can get a little frustrating when you're waiting for it to come out, a slower pace fits the story better where it is at.
The Breaker is a pretty sweet battle manwha that's worth looking into if you want something that feels a little different.
