Manhwa?
I thought you didn't know how to pronounce manga but you did know that.
So, what is manhwa?

It's the word people use when talking about Korean comics =) Same as how we use word "manga" to refer to Japanese comics.

Manhua is chinese version and manhwa is the korean version.
Am I right, so far sindar?

I didn't realize there was a Chinese term as well :O That's cool, so all three of them probably have the same origin.

I never read any Chinese comics, wonder how different they are from usual manga.

I've read three different manhwa, I feel they do differ from Japanese comics. All three took place in high schools, and it made it look like Korean schools are just horrible, kinda like what one imagines a prison would be =) I haven't seen this kind of atmosphere in manga yet.

Would you mind sharing those manhwa names with me?
These days, you could say the same to almost anything.

Talking about manhwa, do you intend to read noblesse?
How is this breaker series?
I heard a lot about that one.

I've read a chapter of Noblesse, didn't impress me enough to continue.

The Breaker is not too deep and the atmosphere isn't too thick with despair, but still it starts kinda awful for the main character. As I said, Korean high schools seem like worst place you can be in, and the Breaker firmly upholds this idea. If you like this kind of stories, human drama that arises from misery and suffering, you should check it out. The comic has some sort of supernatural plot too, but I haven't gone far enough to comment on that.

I do believe I head of dice before.
Is it full of violence? I am not so sure but I do want to read manga from time to time. So, if possible, I would like to add it to my watchlist Grin
