I actually did start working on a transcript, but it's only at 10 pages because I tend to have trouble focusing on things.
Upon rereading Volume 10, I took a look at the cover flaps, and found an interesting tidbit. I'm pretty sure you all know that Volume 10 ends Part 1 of The Breaker. What you might not know is that they're apparently going to start releasing it online or something. Here's the translation of the author's notes on the cover flap. Not a perfect, word-for-word translation, but close enough.

This is actually a pun. daum can also mean later, so the final third line can read as "Part 2 can be met in daum" as well as "Part 2 can be met later". Just a note. Park Jin-Hwan's comment about meeting at daum also makes use of that pun. And finally, an excerpt from the latest post in the blog, about the new format of Part 2.Originally Posted by Park Jin-Hwan
I'm not wholly confident in parts of the translation (mainly the second paragraph) cause my Korean isn't as good as my English, but other than that, I'm sure that I'm pretty much on mark.Originally Posted by Blog Post
The official blog for Breaker (as well as some other project the author seems to be working on called Beast Nine) is here if you want to visit, though it's in Korean.
To answer your question, Blud, if you really want to know...
Also, a final note. Not sure if you've noticed, but page 5 (the second story page) was printed upside down, as noted in the blog above. The blog says that they're going to have a discussion and post the results on Thursday or Friday.
God that was tiring work.

Can anyone put the raw scans in an online reader site or something because my computer broke and I have to use my PS3 for internet now lol.
I really cant wait for part 2.
Now a question, with this changover in digital releases, will the volume still be sold in paper? if they dont its going to cripple online scans of this awesome manwha, because you need a korean citizenship or some horsehit like that for that site. I remember some people saying on A-teams site that was the reason they arent up to date with the releases in Korea.
I believe that this indicates that it still will be released in book format; Daewon (or Daiwon) is the company that prints Breaker, so it's likely that they'll continue to print in paper, yeah.Originally Posted by Blog Post
Also, something else.
There's more that I haven't delved into yet, but you didn't ask about that, so I won't go into it. XP
In most Shonens you hear the publishers anger about scans (Shūeisha, Kōdansha, etc.) not Oda, Kishi or Kubo (even if they are)
In "The Breaker" you actually read the Autors feelings, it is a more personal thing, more deep, like:
"Stop the scans you basterds I´m gonna rip you open!!!" or something as poetic as that.
Manhwa has it hard, he should hop on the "pay for online view"

As for specifics:
Where are all you guys finding the raws and pictures?
Man, after reading the spoilers for Vol 10, I kinda don't want to read The Breaker anymore. I mean, I liked the relationship between GuMoonRyong and Shiwoon. I also think that Shiwoon's progress was a little fast but having him start back at zero is pretty dumb to me. It's almost like they're just scrapping Part 1. I kinda feel like I just wasted my time.
True... I mean, I'll probably read Part 2 when it comes out but, only due to the fact that I read the first part and I want to know how it turns out.
It's better this way, IMO.
well i still think that it's a step back and part 1 is a waste of time (pending on how the second part turns out)
I don't know why ppl think part 1 was a waste of time since Shinwoo starts over again. The Breaker is too amazing to just throw off like that. I agree with Thorn about Gumoonryongs actions. Part 2 will probably be amazing and I will read it just like I've read the first part.
Now animate this dang thing !!!!!!
