Manga Review: 1/2 Prince


Title: 1/2 Prince
Author: Yu Wong, Choi Hong Chong
Release: Monthly
Status: Ongoing
Genre: Shonen, Sci-fi, Gender Bender
Art: B
Originality: B
Story: A
Characters: A
Humor: S
Action: A

Impression: This is a Korean Manhwa about a girl who signs up as a male character on a popular virtual reality MMORPG to prove to her twin brother that she could outdo him without depending on the fact that she’s a girl. Apparently in this story, people have never tried to falsify their gender in online games (HAHAHAHA! There’s always a chance that a girl you meet online is actually a GIRL in our world) so being the first one ever to ask, she’s allowed to disguise herself as a male elf called Prince in the game. She instantly causes a stir in the gaming community with her character’s beauty and as the story progresses Prince also becomes infamous for her and her teammates’ strength and brutality in battle. It’s actually based on a series of Korean light novels that I have heard to be good and contain much more than the manhwa version. I’m really loving this story because it’s got a really good blend of humor, action and characters. I remember this one chapter where Prince wins by default in a tournament for describing the brutally graphic ways in which she thought that their opponents would kill them with while talking to the referee. The end result was pretty much everyone else including the audience somehow puking and having their opponents scared shitless of them. There isn’t really anything that I don’t like about this story so you can tell it’s a pretty good read.
