Based on book/manga?: Not sure
Why did I press play? The newly released sequel (Your Highness) brought this to my attention. It came highly recommended by many comments, which convinces me to check it out.
There is definitely a great comedy element and surprise factor. For example, Qin Zhan unexpected stretches before annihilating another character. The first few scenes of Zhao Xu and his unsuccessful attempt at rescuing a damsel – landing in the lake.
This genre isn’t my cup of tea. The story is set within a gaming fantasy world, but you never see the gamers in real life at their computers and once Qin Zhan is stuck in the game, it simply feels like a continuation of his character before it happened.
This show was dropped. There is nothing that intrigued me enough to stick around. The potential romances are a little ho hum because little chemistry could be spotted. Yu Chen’s continual breezing to higher levels annoyed me – gotta put in work.
If you do like this genre, it’s worth checking out.
