TNT: Breakers Arc 01 by Chwiryong

Hey all I’m back with the first set of chapters in a Korean Novel I just finished reading the other day for this week’s Translation Necessary Thursday. It’s Breakers Arc 01 by Chwiryong!

Plot Synopsis: My name is Joo In-gong. The name that my parents gave me meant ‘protagonist’ of the world. As anyone can predict, I was constantly teased due to my name. In kindergarten, elementary school, middle school and high school. If I went to university as planned then I would probably be laughed at there as well. So, at one point, I really hated my name. But not anymore. Now, I think slightly differently. Maybe being named Joo In-gong was a type of foreshadowing?

[Name: Shutra] [Age: 17] [Species: Gandharva] [Occupation: Protagonist] [Uniqueness: Prince, Conquest Knight] This shows my situation on the Assenbah Continent at a glance.

My name is Joo In-gong. A protagonist.

Plot: The plot is pretty great and is a mix of LitRPG with the Isekai/Tensei Genres.  It deals with In-gong being transported to a world that is almost exactly like a game he loved to play except that he isn’t the characters he played in that game, he’s the weakest side character in the entire game… So yea this was a great start to a series that is pretty freaking awesome. I read the entire series or book in just a few days and even better news is that it’s been fully translated. So you don’t need to wait for it to be completed, it already is.

Characters: In-gong or Shutra is our protagonist and he’s pretty much a weakling. However the rest of the cast we get introduced to in these opening chapters is just as amazing. Carack is just an awesome character, and Caitlin is probably one of my favorite characters in the entire series.

Overall: If you love the LitRPG genre or just like a great story, Breakers will be right up your alley. It’s a relatively short series with only 231 chapters, but since it’s been fully translated it’s a worthy trade off.

For those who like: LitRPGs, Action, Adventure, Drama, Politics, Romance, Excellent Plot, Fantastic Cast of Characters.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, but how can you hate all that put together?

Sensate Saturday: Immortal Regis by Ga On-Bi

immortal_regis

 

This week for Sensate Saturday I’m covering a series that is pretty awesome. It’s Immortal Regis by Ga On-Bi!

Plot Synopsis: One day, suddenly on a night where the moon shines like never before, a boy meets the otherworldly Serin, a denizen of Chaos, only to die and become the undead. This is his story

Plot: Pretty great, although there are some pretty bloody moments in the series. That’s to be expected though when you have a main character that is Undead.

Characters: Jae Hyuk Chae is a great male lead and Serin is an even better female lead. The rest of the cast is great, although my favorites are the lead characters. I just enjoy them a lot more than the other characters.

Artwork: Fits this series to a T, it’s detailed for those action scenes almost perfectly.

Overall: This isn’t a must read, but it’s definitely not far from being one.

For those who like: Romance, Horror, Fantasy, Action, Great Plot, Excellent Cast of Characters.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
