Is anyone else following this gem? It's definitely one of the better seinen martial arts stories (manga or manhwa) out there. Hmm... if I had one sentence to describe it, it would be: Tenjou Tenge done RIGHT.
Summary: Essentially, the story is about a young, weak high school kid being bullied, then one day coming across the new transfer teacher, who apparently knows some martial arts. After a copious amount of pleading, and an accident involving swallowing a rather dangerous pill, the teacher reluctantly agrees to teach the kid some martial arts. However, this drags him into the world of the murim, which are the martial arts masters that have been hiding in secret while engaging in covert activities that give them dominance over society. Unfortunately for the kid, his teacher just happens to be the once-in-a-lifetime genius who has mastered 9 schools of martial arts, but has declared war against all of the murim.
So. Conspiracy theories, powerful rivals, old grudges, hot girls for both master and student, a kid-becomes-a-man story, great artwork, and plenty of riveting action sequences, with injuries and fatalities strewn all around. Plus an actual coherent story with decent plotting and proper foreshadowing. What's not to like?
Scans are being done by the A-Team, but you can also read it online at OneManga. It's 9 volumes and ongoing, with scans halfway through the 8th volume.
