1/2 Prince

Summary stolen from OM
Quote:
It is the year 2100A.D., humans have developed a virtual reality game. Feng lan, due to a bet with her brother, vows to beat the game without using her "female benefits". Due to this, she becomes the first transvestite of "Second Life".
Well me being a big MMO gamer, I instantly took a liking to this. Its got a great mix of comedy and actual MMO stuff but then that wouldn't be too hard to find out about these days.

The group in this is a crazy bunch, well evident of their name "Odd Squad"
As its put in the manga, we first have our Transvestite Warrior, a less than useful thief, a monstrous beast as a cleric, a loli thats scared of her own summons, and a gay poet and a normal wizard.....

My fav is Loli Dragon(shes not the loli btw)she awesome!

totally love this series, can't beleive I missed this gem till now!

Yeah I like it too. I wish there were more mangas/manhuas/manwhas like these which have that "mmorpg theme"

I thought I wouldn't like it at first.. cliche mmorpg scenarios and all but it's actually quite enjoyable. Cool in-game events too with those secret missions and land ownership. Kinda reminds me of HxH Greed Island (not the card collecting stuff though) and Ragnarok mmorpg (grinding levels and farming cash while asleep? lol it owns!! no actual time wasted).

It doubles as a romance manga too.

I'd say she's far from normal. She prefers wolf-men over Prince and Gui.

I like this manga. I wasn't into it so much at the beginning because it started off as a straight comedy. But after they brought the real-life stuff into it I liked it a lot more. The characters grew on me.

haha yea well I was gonna describe her a tad more but I felt saying she was normal fits better for some reason

I just wonder what shes like outside of the game

Gui is just too funny for words really, crazy doesn't come close to describing him

Looks like there's gonna be a bit of problem in scanlation after releasing volume 6 (or was it volume 5).. apparently the original group doing the scanlation will be dropping the series coz of some other group releasing irregularly. Let's hope it'll be resolved without any trouble.

About the last chapter released. lol! looks like the author is a bit of a fan to Rurouni Kenshin series and decided to make an uber character out of him. (LvL 100? they'll never have any problems dealing with special events ^^ not even Gui's Phoenix can match that)

Well we see Prince meets with Sunshine initially just after discovering that hidden quest that involves Kenshin too.
We see them go about doing parts of the quest but its most of it is basically skipped and fast forward to the rest of the group back in the city.
Good thing to as I wanted to get back to Prince with the rest as thats when the story is at its best

oh and also I had a little reread of chapters before and Sunshine is indeed male, a very pretty male but still male none the less

Ah yes, chapter 27. I remember it now after rereading it.

Should be interesting to see where they go from here. Prince has gathered up a large cast of varied characters. The switching back and forth between real life and the game is amusing.

I started this a while ago but lost interest for some reason but I got back into it and wow this is just plain funny. Lolidragon pulling while asleep reminds me of playing FFIX when I was playing the thief. So bored.

I'm really into this too. I came from Taiwan when I was young, so I'm practically Americanized and although I can understand Chinese, I've missed out on all the subculture as I was growing up. So it's great to see all that stuff coming back to me in the form of a welldone manhwa. XD A lot of the stuff is extremely funny to me, like when their parents left to play a mmo as a vacation WTF LOL. And her dad mentioned that he raised his daughter just so she'll be a good servant made me laugh so hard, because truer words can't be said about China. Plus the author has a daughter himself so I wonder if he's doing a satire on his own situation lol

I'm also really ashamed that I played too many MMOs and can relate to everything going on. T_T

I don't know about China, but recently it's kinda common for Koreans (synonymous with "no-life"). XD

This manga is the closest and best take on MMOs, especially on what is played these days and how things are in them.
loved the part with the boat travel, totally reminds me of WoW and how boring it was-__-
