So, there's this guy jee-han that entered a dangerous zone without noticing and acquired powers that make him able to interact with life using games and RPG logics.
My review!!!

 The Manga can be read here...

Okay... The Gamer has a terrible synopsis! It is way to simple to describe this one but whoever made the entry probably put it like that to make you want to see what the heck they are talking about... How could this character use game logic in life... And why were there dangerous zones in a place where a normal kid could end up wondering into them right? Let's explore this a bit...

Sooo.... I have read way more than the 5 required chapters with this one... I didn't even realize I had done so either! It was great! But back to the points... The dangerous zones are magic based places that can occur on their own but mostly they are created by people. In them it is very like an RPG dungeon in a game online. At least it is for our main character. He can also interact with other people like if they were players in a game giving them a boost...

Wait.... What am I doing?!?!? I'm giving away information!!! NOOOOOO! lol... Well since I am going as far as to give you that much info I had better give you the rating... At least that is what I'm supposed to be doing right?


On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Read" rating I give this...

8

Yes it got an 8... I got so lost in the story that I read so far before I realized it so I feel that at the least it deserves an 8. The art is beautiful and I really like the scroll one page per chapter rather than the 15-30 pages with one image per page that I normally see. I think that's why I like Webtoons.

Anyhow... This one is a great read because it had a good story and great art. However sometimes it feels like you have stalled and the story goes no where... But when I thought about it I figured this was done on purpose. It mimics the grind when trying to gain levels in some games.. Lots of repetitive actions that add up after a LONG time playing. So even that aspect became cool to me!

With that being said... I think I can end this review here. It's a high note after all and this was such a good read that I plan on keeping up with it so it deserves a high note to end on! Sooo Yeah...

As always... Thanx for reading my review!
Hope you have a fun filled day!!!

Synopsis

In the year 5053, French aristocrats Viscount Albert de Morcerf and Baron Franz d'Epinay attend the festival of Carnival on the moon city of Luna. While Franz is just looking to have fun, Albert is seeking something more to fill his life—but he finds more than he bargained for in The Count of Monte Cristo, a mysterious and charming self-made nobleman who meets his gaze during an opera performance.

Through a few twists and turns, Albert befriends the Count and introduces him into French society. The Count, however, has more on his mind than just friendship; he plots to finally unleash his vengeance on those who wronged him years earlier. Gankutsuou follows Albert and the Count's intertwined destinies and the ultimate price paid for enacting revenge.


My review!!!

 The Anime can be watched here...

I started watching this one and the first thing I noticed was the unique way it was drawn. The way that it seems like the patterns aren't truly part of the anime but instead are just a background that you see through a clear part in the anime. It can make the watching of such a show kind of difficult at times. However it can also make the anime very interesting to watch.

If you get tired of watching anime that has a cartoon like feel then I think this kind of artwork is a good change of pace! Don't get me wrong... I think the other style is amazing too but sometimes I just want something different. I'm sure you can relate to what I'm saying so I'm not going to explain further.

But now that that is out of the way... Let's get the rating out of the way too!

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Watch" rating I give this...

So I've already told you part of why it only got an 8... But to be truthful I think it's rude to say "only got" with such a high rating. It really is a good anime. I feel like it gets hard to follow at some points so it's not an anime for those who are just starting to dabble in watching. Between the colors, patterns and the style the characters are drawn in being unique, I feel this one would be hard to watch for someone who doesn't know the language. If you have to read the subtitles the patterns and colors are going to be distracting!

However... If you think you can handle the challenge I say you should check it out! It's a good one. The story is interesting and makes you really take a look at things in your life if you pay attention to it. I was thinking about a lot of things after watching just the first 5 episodes... I really need to find out how this story ends because it has me questioning life as I know it. How much do I really know? For that reason I am going to say this could fit the tag of being a psychological anime. There are so many things in it that make me think.

For that alone I would love it! and on that note I feel I should end this... Hopefully it was enough to make you want to check it out for yourself!

As always... Thanx for reading my review!
Hope you have an interesting and meaningful day!!!

Synopsis

In the decade since the world became aware of the existence of magic, the world has undergone a massive upheaval. However, a boy named Touta lives in seclusion in a rural town far removed from these changes. His ordinary life is highlighted by his magic-using female teacher and his supportive friends. When his tranquil daily life is disrupted, he embarks on a unique adventure.


My review!!!

 The Manga can be read here...


This is one of those ones that within the first chapter you know if you will like it... I feel like it seems to have a goofy overtone because the main character is so carefree... However there are a lot of things happening in just the first 5 chapters so I would say this one is pretty fast paced too. I do know that it has a way of grabbing you that makes you hold on tight and want to read more!

There is a twist to our main character too... I wonder how strong he is going to be in the end... And how many friends will he manage to actually gather. This is going to be a long road for this guy especially since he has no idea where he wants to end up. All he knows is he wants to keep his promise to his four friends from the village he was desperate to get out of!

The capital awaits!!! But before we go there let me rate this little gem!

It really is a good manga... The story is good and the art is beautiful. The reason it didn't get higher is because there are times where the speech bubbles get confusing because they are attached and it's things more than one person is saying. Once you get used to the style it's not bad though!

To be honest I love anything supernatural... Usually. But this one was really nice because our characters don't follow the normal flow for monsters. They are quite violent but they don't seem to be blood thirsty at all... Maybe that's still to come but normally it starts off like that! I like this change! I didn't expect "be my friend" to be one of the main themes either so that was great... Yeah, I'm actually being serious... Although I don't know how far into the manga that will last, I can't wait to find out!

And on that note... I'm going to go so I can read a bit more! I'm loving this manga!!!! You should really check it out for yourself!

As always... Thanx for reading my review!
Hope you have an adventurous and friend filled day!!!
