Through out this whole Manhwa held a 9/10 from me but I'm gonna have to drop this to an 8/10 it's still very good because if it has a part 2 then I'll move it back up to a 9 but as far as I know there isn't going to be a sequel for it's a solid 8/10 for me. It's a good read but going for 80+ chapters just to not have a conclusive ending is unforgivable, because in my opinion it overwhelms majority of the good things this manwha brought to the table.

High school is usualy full of bullies, arguments, exam's,60-year-old-hag's, and other realistic/uncool elements. But what about a school where almost every second is spent for fight's? Interested?Then I suggest you step inside the world of Veritas

The Academy where our protoganist studies isn’t your typical high school. It’s ruled by fighting, and The Executive Council (and the teachers) intend to keep it that way. Intimidating and dangerous, they practically rule the academy.

Some of the things to watch out for are: crazy brawls, near-death battles, relationship drama, ripped skirt's(?), special fighting moves and supernatural abilities.

After reading the first six volumes, I asked myself: “Is an read more

With the exception of a few comedies, like Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, or Cromartie High School, manga and anime primarily set in high school absolutely suck.

The reason for this is simple enough; of all the exciting, interesting places to base a story, high school is just about the worst. Choosing this as a setting is simply pandering to one's audience, nothing more.

However, despite so much working against it, "Veritas" manages to pull this off. This is no ordinary school; it's a place for instructing exceptional fighters, set up by an organization called Reunion, which has mastered biotechnology and robotics at read more

With the exception of the main character, I found this series somewhat dull. The art is fantastic--easily my favorite in terms of artistic ability-- however the story's tendency to be repetitive with scenarios and an over-bearing focus on the female anatomy somewhat dulled my enjoyment of the series. The main character is an exception to that outlook in that he seems to be the only grounded/sane character--his honestly-selfish ambition is a necessary breather from the somewhat self-delusional ambition attributed to most of the secondary characters.

In my opinion, this series earns read more

Manga: The Breaker
If you Like one then you will like the other, I promise you that. both martil arts, action, school life Manhwas, both protagonists want to get stronger, both have to beg masters to teach them, both get unreal powers. i could keep on going for a while. while they both have simlar settings the story are very different mainly because of the protagonists, one is a strength baka introduced into a world of genius and superhumans. while the other is weaking being pushed into a corner and make to get stronger to protect. the breaker is darker and in more real that veritas. trust me, to love one  read more

Manga: The Breaker: New Waves
Both are similar. Veritas Looks easier to read. Both this manga are Korean.
It looks like copy of the breaker, a good copy I could say.
2 hero looks to gain the power to protect themselves against the better fighters in Murim or in the martial art world.

Manga: Tenjou Tenge
Both are about fighting with supernatural powers, and they are similar somehow to each other 
reportRecommended by silvver
Manga: Aiki
Both feature men which completely believe in their powers, so much that it's gotten to their heads and they're full of arrogance.

Funnily enough, they barely get the beat down they deserve and lay wreck to all their opponents.

If you're looking for a break from the stereotypical "wimpy personality yet insanely strong fighter" type of hero, these two should be both on your list.

Manga: Zen Martial Arts Academy
Both manhwa that have protagonists in a somewhat similar setting, both entering a school known for it's martial arts.

Manga: Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi
The action in both of these titles are strongly exaggerated. Expect near death experiences, outrageous comebacks, and all the needless drama in between.
