Chapter 78 to 81 of Veritas written by Yoon Joon Sik and drawn by Kim Dong-hoon. So, chapter 81 was the end of the first part. My reaction can be summed up in the following:









I have not been this surprised (or gutted) by a fight series in a very long time now. In fact the only other fight series that have gutted me on this level in recent memories are The Breaker (Korean) and One Piece (Japanese). But honestly, there is about a million turns, alliances, betrayals, and so many surprises that I honestly felt like my head was going to explode there. I'm so UNSUSED to NOT having a proper EVIL VILLAIN in a series that I'm really CONFUSED. The series started off as a typical shounen fight seres, but OMFG! It SO ISN'T! It TAKE EVERY shounen fight series troupe and BREAK it into a MILLION pieces.

Also, my feelings toward the main and supporting cast of this series is very conflicted. While certain characters revolts me, I can't help but feel a certain level of admiration for how fucking ruthless they can be. This series is pretty damn awesome.

Gods - I hope part 2 comes out soon.

I wish I'd never read this manga. I should know by now never to trust manhwa for good things dammit.

OMFG! Rud! WHY?!!!

Manhwa is EVIL. It started so light-hearted, and I EXPECTED to follow the SAME shounen route. But then it didn't, and it was too late at that point, and the ending gutted me.

I don't know how I feel about Vera and Yuri, or even Lightning Tiger. I JUST WANT TO CRY over RUD!
