Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

My name is Joo In-gong. The name that my parents gave me meant ‘protagonist’ of the world. really?

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?

A protagonist being transported to a game world isn't a new thing, nor him knowing tricks about the game world even less him having some wronged knowledge about the characters.

However that doesn't take much away from it, the fact that he appeared as the weakest brother of the future demon lord if the game followed the plot he knows looks fairly interesting, not to mention him viewing some characters in new lights, I am not sure if I could call the protagonist wise but that doesn't really matter because he... more>> has a skill that embodies plot armor as his job is protagonist, so he could probably manage to properly execute some batman like schemes without even trying <<less

Quite an enjoyable story. It isn't too brutal but it isn't all sunshine and rainbows (though it's leaning more toward the good side), i'd say it's a simple story meant for enjoyment and to pass time, not for deep thinking. It's focused on the main character which was transported from the real world to a game-like one and showing off his op-ness and road to becoming a demon king while making new friendship, bonds and protecting the ones he holds dear. There are quite a few stereotypes and cliches here... more>> and there but I have to give credit because there weren't glaring errors like sudden changes of attitude for any of the characters or inconsistencies in plot like in most other novels.

The ending felt a bit rushed, as nearly all of the secrets and foreshadows were revealed durning and after the last battle (last ~10 chapters) but it doesn't feel so bad as it was nicely closed up with the epilogue and side stories (which I personally found very sweet).

Other Characters beside the MC are likable and decent and show actual emotions appropriate to situations and aren't there just to worship MC on every action he does (they do praise him, but it isn't their only purpose in the story). Side characters get development on their own and they progress throughout the story. I guess some people might get annoyed since the closest aide of MC is a protagonist on his own - he has almost as much screentime as the MC and also has a harem but for the most part he is clueless about it while being smart and there are often jokes on how he is a protagonist in his own right from the MC.

As for his girls, they feel like real women and aren't there just to satisfy MC or be a part of his collection. MC has actual feelings for them, treats them well and there has to be quite some time spent between them for feelings of love to develop. Some of the girls are pure and naive and some are acquisitive and lean to plotting, they all have different personalities and none of them are 1-dimensional dolls. Romance isn't over the top but it isn't terrible either, i'd say it was properly executed and a nice refreshment from all those ''Love at first sight'' types.

Protagonist is pretty likable and moderate at what he does which I always support. For me, it doesn't matter if the MC is evil or good, if he is moderate in it and not going from one extreme to another. He is also not hypocritical and author doesn't ever try to make him out to be which is a big plus (doing evil things while saying it's good) . There was also some sort of a compensation for his overwhelming op-ness in a form that even his enemies and other characters are buffed way more than they should be. The only problems I had is that he kinda adjusts his mentality from a high schooler to a prince too fast (there was a paragraph about him supposed to feel trauma after his first kill but it was skipped for some reason) and the fact that he is too amenable (people drag him into other missions and he accepts them without much skepticism which feels more like a game mission and not the one you get in an actual reality). <<less

One of best korea novel on NU, where most fantasy novels tends to make MC conquer the world (and make these arcs bland), breakers put it an ending in good moment, although last arc feels rushed, though

A fun novel to read. It might not be the deepest thing ever, but it's full of hype (initially at least).

MC has cool abilities. He's not especially interesting as a character though. He's okay. Normal. XD

Seriously, I initially really liked the story (felt hype every chapter almost), but my feelings cooled down towards the end (nothing like a 5 month break to cool your feelings). The MC kinda got way OP (in a cool way, but still) and the ending was predictable. I was shocked to see Breakers end so... more>> quickly. I feel like this story could've gone much further. It's good enough for me to feel sad about its ending...

Side characters are cute. The girls aren't annoying. World building was good! The cheats got explained, pfft.

The last chapter of the story pretty much explained everything important. Felt more like a info dump reveal. It answered my questions though.

My review makes the story sound meh, but it's actually a good one. Style feels like a Shounen Manga though. <<less

It is a good little story.

The MC gets pulled into a game (spoiler :: supposedly the game is based on some records of another world passed by someone into our world) . He knows the not so good ending of the game, and needs to prevent it. Hence starts his journey in this new world.

Does the novel contain harem? - Yes, (spoiler :: the number of people in it is greater than 2 if you count Green Wind, Anastasia and possibly Nayatra) .

Does he return to his own world?... more>> - There is a possibility to return but do you really want the MC to leave his harem?

The events in the story happen over a year (or two), and considering that the problem he has to tackle is enormous, the complains about story being repetetive, rushed at the ending, etc. Do not hold as the story and no. Of chapters are short. AS I SAID, IT IS A HAPPY LITTLE STORY. <<less

A terribly disappointing ending. I started reading right as Breakers started getting translated, and I've enjoyed the ride all the way up until now, but no longer. It feels like right around Chapter 215 or so, the author decided to skip straight to the ending. A lot of stories feel bloated, like they could have been told in half the number of words. This time, it's the opposite. The final battle is too sudden, and too rushed. There could easily have been another 100 or even 200 chapters, the better to flesh out the storyline, explore the world, and develop the characters outside Shutra/In-gong's inner circle.

This was a story with a lot of promise. A pity that will never be realized.

It a bit interesting but not to my league. I found the MC a bit lack in personality department where the side kick seems to be over glorified by the author. The set-up seems interesting enough and it's only become interesting for me

as the story goes. It a bit similar to shounen genre that it's bland and lack to wow appeal for me. It' good to read but not the type that would excite.

Plus, I found the green wind so annoying as she tryhard to sticks to the MC (like... more>> notice me senpai level). Other characters are interesting and not bland like other novels which is good. The characters and the world is the thing which is interesting. But there is too many question need to be answers. The world has a nice build up but lacks the fighting badness department.

I guess I think is just OK for me but not the type that I would reread for many times that I needed to turn it to PDF to read offline. It's a ok read to past time. <<less

MC being reincarnated inside a game world. At first I really like the story, but as the story progress I find some faults with it well there is good things there too.

The bad thing is even tho the MC knows the game pretty well he doesn't use it very well. Like for example:
-He still wants his old followers (in the game) even tho (i think) there is still stronger people he can make him follow
-The writing style also includes a lot of thinking so um..? You cant easily... more>> get emotionally attached to the MC? At least that's what I felt when reading this novel.
-The other characters is also one dimensional (tho I think its getting better).
-He's also way too carefree (it's like the MC just let the plot armor protect him) .
-The power system (for me) looks random like for ex: magical power, physic power, aura, divine power etc, etc, its jumble all together I cant get hype at all when it got mention. (-_-)
recommended? Yes. As I said there are still some good things you can found on this novel. Just too lazy too write them :P <<less

I'm just so sick of hearing "MC (Shutra) ! You're so great!"

This phrase sums up everything wrong with this novel. It's just far too masturbatory. Instead of being shown that the MC is awesome, you have to be told that he's awesome - over and over and over and over again. MC can do everything and anything, and all his to-be-wives have to remind him (and unfortunately us as well) how great and magnificent and handsome and cute, etc. He is.

Breakers is a fine short story. The protagonist and main cast are well written, although a bit archetypal for some of their traits, the background is concise but well done (the final plot explanation and the how and why of the world transfert are coherent if a bit unimaginative), there is no filler chapter, the rise to power of the main character, while quick, doesn't feel like a teenager's power trip, the harem element is present but doesn't feel forced, and the ending, while seeming a tad rushed, is well... more>> timed enough and leaves a impression of satisfaction.

To sum everything up, the elements of this tale are just above average, but the alchemy between them make Breaker a good story to read over the course of 1 or 2 weeks, not being excellent but certainly much better than a lot of other korean short novels. <<less

This story reads a bit like watching someone else play a video game.

When it sticks to game elements and action sequences, it's interesting enough in concept: game the system, gain ALL the levels, crush everything. Nothing groundbreaking, but reasonably entertaining. There's a B-movie plot in there somewhere, but it mostly serves as a thinly-veiled excuse for all the powerleveling, in typical RPG style. Pretty standard stuff.

Every other part of the story falls completely flat, on account of the main character being excruciatingly bland. Once again, in typical RPG style. Oh,... more>> and there's a harem romance sub-plot with borderline mind control that tries to be cute but is actually super creepy. <<less

The story is almost good, but...
It's about the protagonist whose soul is transferred to another world to save that world. That's all.

The story line is short and straight forward. No cliff, no turn around, no corner, no hidden plot. Each act is for powering up the MC. The fight/combat is short and plain and straight. No catchya, no unexpected, no any expect. That's one star rating lost.

The dialogue destroy another star. Each character can talk only a simple short, straight, plain sentence. Not until the last chapters that they... more>> can talk lengthy or have complex idea behind.

Love scene is not exist until the very last chapters. Harem too.

OK to read to pass time. Wanna give 4 stars, but can't. <<less

Novel was good. Author probably wanted to make more chapters but he changed his mind and shortened the story.
Spoiler

Story developing well to 200 chapter+ and then author decides to end the story faster and just skip to the end with some plot armors.

Actually world has potential mb story of this MC ended but I would like to see another story in this world.

After following this translation for so long, I have a lot of mixed feelings. I love this story, I enjoyed reading the story one chapter at a time from beginning to end. The story itself is nowhere near a literary masterpiece, it has plenty of its own problems. But it just has a way of growing on you that makes you love it. A lot of people won't like what this translation has to offer, but those that do will love it. I hope anyone reading this will take the... more>> time to give the story a fair shot, & see if it grows on you as well. ^.^

The story are much better than I expected, I thought it was going to typical story of repetitive things, but I was wrong. The balance between MC role and Support character are well balanced (though some of them are didn't have enough screen time but considering the length of chapters). The story might be not exceptional or something new, but the the way story flow, the phase, and the execution of story is splendid.

I might be a bit overpraise it, but it's worth to read till the end.

Don't read... more>> those negative preview, especially who only read halfway and bitching about it.

And thank you Rainbow Turtle (and the team), for brought us this story and top quality translation, once again thank you <<less

As you know KRs often love human vs all step into the past MCs, but this novel truly makes it look like a game come to life, without the MC being an edgelord or going around killing every sentient species for god

Its about a weak ass prince becoming powerful to protect the friends he made along the way from their fates

The character development is plainly obvious but not too sudden nor does he simply find a max level rare candy, op potential though

Not sure why anybody would give this low rating coz of some minor annoyances

Novel is on good pace ~ some characters are really entertaining and you definitely enjoy a lot when MC gets new skills he is kind of good person ~ There are a lot of mysteries too~

the most interesting part of this novel is that it never gets boring coz of constant changes brought in by plot, characters and skills

This was by far the most "amazing" light novel I've read so far where the main character doesn't go on some killing spree just to show how cool there supposed to be. I really like the MC in this. I like how he thinks things through and can be calm and not just some villain called MC. I want to read more like this. Thanks a lot for a great light novel.

A simple but sweet story. I found all of the heroines fairly likeable and the protagonist to be decent. Nothing is amazingly funny or emotional, and the story doesn't have tremendous depth or meaning, but I got through this novel in 3 days and I don't regret the hours I spent on it.

Although Breakers has some cool ideas, if you're sick of the kind of action-harem story you'd see out of a J-RPG, this isn't for you. But I haven't read too many novels of this type yet. I really... more>> enjoyed the story. <<less
