(if you didn't read the prequel don't read this contains major spoilers for prequel)
Decided to re-edit this since i couldn't express why I rated this so highly.
I was trying to hard not to spoil anything i ended up writing nothing so here's my second attempt

First off one thing i loved about this is that he doesn't need to relearn to fight he knows how to fight however he can't because of his ki center being broken. I'm sure as soon as he gets his ki center fixed he'll be back to his old self

Story -
The story revolves around the kid this time around read more

Okay decided to edit my whole review after updating myself with it (haven't read it for more than a year)

I did say New Waves kinda disappointed me abit compared to the first one. I really really love The Breaker so I was expecting something really good with this one. At first I think the story kinda drifted off from what I was expecting but after reading it up to the latest chapter, I can say that "Finally! This is getting good." Thrilling factor is still there of course.

Art is very good. For me I think it improved alot. In the The Breaker, read more

~This series just keeps on getting better and better from the very first chapter. Now, this MANHWA (korean manga) is at a point that it is on my fav. list. Before, I start reviewing I need to say 2 things.

1. This is a sequel so make sure to read "The Breaker" its prequel before reading this.
2. I will try to be less plot revealing and make it more temptating, so you guys can read it.

Plot 10/10- If you thought the prequel was good then the sequel is just even more awesome. I mean just name even 10 stories where sequels were good as or read more

Updated ( 10/6/2013)

A lot has changed since my previous review of New Waves. Let's get started.

Story 8/10
The story of New Waves is that Shioon, after the events of The Breaker, has to cope with life without martial arts. However he is still be targeted for being NAD's ( Nine Arts Dragon) disciple. During one of these encounters Shioon meets the fiery red head Jenee, who is ordered to protect him by the people of the Sunwoo clan. Later it is revealed that the Sunwoo clan wants Shioon to be their new leader, and thus begins the story of New Waves.

Manga: Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi
Both are about martial arts. The protagonists are somehow similar. New Waves has less comedy and is darker.

Manga: Veritas
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: Rosario to Vampire: Season II
These two titles have many things in common , Both have MC who's trying to be stronger and fighting so much , till becoming one of the strongest characters in the story. Both are manga that continues where prequel left off and also more serious. One of the biggest differences is that Rosario+Vampire arouses around youkai world while The Breaker is martial arts , so you can expect many epic battles and plot-twists.

Manga: Sun-ken Rock
If you like mangas about yakuza' and gangsters etc.. you will love these two, I guaranty it. the story are a bit similar. they both have a main guy that accidently becomes a boss of a yakuza or the mafia.
- read the breaker then read the breaker new wave its a continuation of the breaker but you will love it.
