Jo Ja-Hyun (Jay) is the student president of Taeyang (Sunny) High. He is not just a smart student but an extreme biker with high techniques. As you follow his bike, you will meet his friends, love, and adventures.
That's my first review so be gentile (must to say that im from spain so my english is kinda bad, sorry). :3
Actually i want to start saying that if you come form Yowamushi Pedal you shouldn't deserve a similar manga (or manhwa in this case)
The main character it's actually okay, nothing that makes the diference comparing it to another mangas or animes, and the secondary characters are probably better, but whatever xD.
The history starts like a normal day for our main character (Jay) making an awesome and amazing use of a bicycle making one jump on a construction and a very extremly yaw on
a downhill. The history is the same as any other spokon... or at least this is what you will expect when you start reading it, but one of the characters will make a diference about it and then the history will take an dark background. Afterall it's another spokon story si will not make the diference, but is not that bad by the way.
Nothing that makes the diference... So why did you put an 8? Well, you just have to read it and then you will see why, the autor transmits all the feeling in the careers and are actually (even nowing who will won or lose the caree) excting as fuck. Probably it's not the best artwork you will see on a manhwa because the background stage of some pages are not the best, but you'll definetly like how is made the artwork in general.
This is strange and a little bit bizard but let's start, first of all i have to say that the characters design and personality are so poor... but then Vinny makes his appear and becomes an special character that you will probably never forget.
Ciclism is actually one of my favourite sports like basketball so I really enjoy it as fuck. If you like spokons suchs as Haikyuu!, Kuroko no basuke or Yowamushi Pedal, you will probably, love as much as i love Wind Breaker.
I think it will never deserve a 10 but considering how the history is going and how is improving the autor with the time i really want to support it and read one chapter every week, enjoying every single line and every single drawing of it.
I know this is short, i know this is porbably a bad review, but i am just impresed about this manhwa, so i actually just realised that i can coment here to recomendate to anyone because, and afterall, Wind Breaker it's actually a GOOD manwha.
Wind Breaker is an impassioned take on cycling and connections between people that it can lead to. Of course, a webtoon as good as this deserves more than such a simple description, so let's get in to it!
I previously mentioned that this series is about cycling and connections, and it certainly is. The plot of Wind Breaker follows a highschooler and avid cyclist named Jay. Throughout the series Jay makes friends and encounters some crazy situations, all thanks to his passion for cycling. I don't want to spoil anything that actually goes down in the story, this is a general rundown of the starting premise
for Wind Breaker, however something that should also be mentioned is that the series features a lot of humor. In fact, the hilarious humor of Wind Breaker allows the plot time to pace itself, resulting in a series that feels relevant and fresh consistently. I'll talk more about the kind of humor featured in the series later.
Art plays a surprisingly relevant role in Wind Breaker, especially in keeping the 'feel' of the series fresh and trendy. I'd argue that this is in large thanks due to the character designs. Characters in Wind Breaker simply look different from each other, serving to give them each a sense of individuality, whether in the form of hair style or clothing, it is certainly effective. With this said, characters don't just look different for the sake of looking different, their appearance gives an indication on who they are, breathing life into characters in a way that isn't over the top nor unnoticeable. The fashion in Wind Breaker is also generally appealing, quite a rare thing to see in this medium.
The characters.. are awesome! Seriously, the characters just about make this series what it is. Perhaps my favorite aspect about the characters are that they're so realistic, yet they're not a generic cut-out. Too often in the medium do we get a character that is ONLY a personality trait, I feel like this is especially true in sports series, thankfully this isn't the case in Wind Breaker. Equally awesome as the characters individually are the characters together, they've got the kind of relationship going on that is the envy of all high schoolers. Wind Breaker has a lot of different characters to like for different reasons, and I think that's one of it's crowning achievements.
Am I enjoying Wind Breaker? (At the time of writing this review it's ongoing) heck yeah I am, and i'm sure that you will to. This series is a bunch of fun, thanks to the hilarious character and reference humor especially. It feels like to me that even when the series is at it's most serious, there's still a lot of enjoyment to be had. That's not to say that the more serious or dark moments are washed over with humor, but in my eyes it seems like Wind Breaker portrays these moments through a lense of hope, positivity and potential.
Anyway.. I'm a big fan of this one. Go ahead and give it a try =D
