20130522-152117.jpg Confession… I don’t like manhwa. I kinda don’t remember why I didn’t like it so I decided to read this manhwa. Zen Martial Arts Academy is one of the most interesting comics I’ve ever read, even compared to manga and American comic books. The art of this manhwa is absolutely amazing! You can tell from the pictures. The story starts to build up in a very interesting way, you won’t be able to stop reading. The action is over the top and pretty awesome, there is always someone stronger. Though sadly at the end of that manhwa I realized why I disliked manhwa to begin with. The manga ended at a critical point. I felt like it ended before it even began. I think they expect us to complete it or some… It’s really sad to see such amazing work end in such matter.

Overall Rate: 6/10
