Shi-Woon is desperate. He's constantly bullied and getting beat up at school by a gang of thugs, and is on the verge of suicide. Sick of being weak and helpless, the boy turns to the only person he knows who can help: Chun-Woo, a powerful martial artist and also his new teacher. But Chun-Woo won't take Shi-Woon under his wing so easily, and little does the teenager know about how his would-be mentor acquired his fighting talents...
When Gangryong was in middle school, a powerful martial artist named Yoochun saved him from a group of bullies. Eager to become stronger, the boy begged Yoochun to train him; and after several years of preparation, the man finally agrees to teach him his special skill, Lightning Fist. But soon, Gangryong is approached by a seedy organization named Reunion with a message: Yoochun is dead by their hands, and as his successor, the boy must become a member of Reunion. Once he becomes as strong as his deceased mentor, Gangryong can know more about Yoochun's death. And so, the would-be martial artist heads to a special school for Reunion candidates, eager to fight foes and allies to prove his strength along the way.
Veritas and The Breaker, have pretty much the same awesome mind-blowing plot. Veritas starts off with a kid whose tough but wants to be stronger, and The Breaker starts off with a kid whose weak but wants to be stronger. Both the guys meet incredible masters of martial arts and beg to become there disciples. The masters in these two Manwhas also look very much alike and are badass.
After all said and done, the two boys in different manga come into incredible techniques. The arts wonderfully drawn and everyone should give these two mangas a chance.
The breaker and veritas are both great manwahs in their own rights. Very similar story lines, that still goes in somehow completely different directions. If it's the basic concepts (ie, older student learning a martial arts from a reknown master and slowly becoming stronger) that attracts you to one, then you will definetely love the other
Both start with normal young guys that get sucked into an extravagant world of inhuman martial arts upon meeting mysterious people who turn out to be famous in the fighting world. The art and fights are great, and it's interesting to see how the students progress in their plight to become as strong as their legendary teachers.
Veritas feels a little more like Tenjho Tenge, but both of these manga focus on a weak kid who begs a strong mentor to help train him in martial arts, with similar art styles and themes along the way.
Very similar, with great characters, fights, and some epic moments. This martial arts manhwa also has the same premise - with a focus on the master/disciple relationship. Both Veritas and the Breaker has a few comedic scenes which alleviate the tension created by the focus on martial arts.
Great Series, both of them.
Shirihama Kenichi is a weak scaredy-cat, and his status as the karate club's punching bag has earned him the name of ‘Weak Legs'. One day Kenichi meets Miu and, impressed by her skill after she effortlessly throws him to the ground, he follows her to the Ryouzanpaku dojo. There he finds five great masters of martial arts, and driven by his desire to become stronger, he begs them to accept him as their student - though it won't be easy. Kenichi endures harsh training (and injury) from Akisame - the philosophizing Jujitsu master; Apachai - the Muay Thai ‘God of Death'; Kensei - the ecchi Chinese Kempo Master; and Shigure - the weapons prodigy. Finally after proving his determination, he is accepted by Shio - the 100-dan Karate Master, who had initially wanted nothing to do with him. Now Kenichi walks the long and arduous path to becoming a master himself, all whilst trying to protect those he cares about from anyone who would dare to harm them.
Yes, they are both martial arts mangas, but that aside, the two do have other similarities. Weak protaganist, strong arch enemies encouraging their growth, and even stronger masters leading them, and let's not forget the special morals of our leading men setting them apart. The protaganists even sound alike at times. If you like any of these ideas and want to see them reproduced in completely different settings, then definitely try both of these mangas/manwahs.
Kenichi is more based on traditional martial arts (while still being ridiculously over the top) while the breaker deals with superhuman ki abilities. They both have protagonists that train under insanely strong masters which progress them to become much more powerful. The action is good and entertaining in both, and they also like to include comedy and ecchi aspects.
Both The Breaker and History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi follow the main protagonist and his path to becoming stronger, so that he can better protect those dear to him. The illustration in both series is excellent with the story flowing in a very similar way in both series
Chances are if you liked one, you will like the other.

In the world of martial arts there's one name that strikes fear in the hearts of others: Kunitoshi. As a child, the boy took down expert opponents young and old, but as a result of his abnormal abilities he was unfamiliar with hardships. Therefore his father decided to put limiters on Kunitoshi's body, sapping him of half his original strength. But even with his handicap, Kunitoshi is highly sought after by both his classmates and teachers alike, who are eager to be trained by such a skilled fighter. Alongside busty companions such as Rin, Hou Mei and Akemi, Kunitoshi will battle countless enemies while trying to find a way to remove his body's limiters.
It's all about the Masters of Martial Arts. Aiki and The Breaker, which sounds funny, are centered on perverted hilarious martial arts masters. These two protagonists become teachers for a school and make fools out of themselves. Most of the time they act childish, but they also have a serious side. Both our main characters take on disciples who are put into brutal fights. Each of the protagonists is constantly threatened by a deadly organization that is out to obtain their martial art secrets. With funny moments and badass action moments, if you read one then you shouldn’t pass up the other manga.
The Breaker and Gamaran involve boys who want to be much stronger in the martial arts. Both Shin-woo and Gama are laid back kids who leave their old life and enter a bigger world. They are willing to take on any challenge in order to gain respect and strength. With some comedy in both mangas, one feels these manga are side by side in action and kick butt awesomeness. With mass potential and interesting characters, I often ask myself why people haven't read these yet.
