I just CAN'T praise it enough. The whole game concept is extremely interesting. For the gamers out there, you will definitely enjoy the fact that the manhua uses game lingo. For the ladies, I'm sure the fact that almost all the guys in 1/2 Prince is a bishie.

I enjoy the times when the manhua focuses on real life instead of the game, because it shows that "coincidently" people from in game meet in real life. How they look and act in game is totally different than reality itself.

This manga explores equality issues, but glosses over it because it is too serious for a manhua like this. Full of comedy, romantic interests, and forging friendships, this manhua is quite delightful.

Oh yes. For the yaoi fangirls out there. When you see Gui and Prince out there together... Talk about instant nosebleed.

...Truthfully, I don't really gasp or show any emotion while reading manga unless it's spectactular. However this manga really made me laugh, smile, frown, and go WTF at different moments. I really recommend it.

I have never read anything like this one. I like everything in it! the vibrant and funny characters, the amazing game world, the futuristic and interesting real world, the story and all of the adventures! Its a manhua with never-ending fun adventures and comedy. There's absolutely NOTHING to complain about! Almost if not completely perfect!

Also, because Second Life is just a game, nobody dies, hence things are never too serious. Its simply plain FUN.

This manhua immediately topped my list of favourite manga/manhua/manwha.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
... when Prince won his little city after the guild wars, EVERYTHING went down. The story went into a whole NPC rights/activism kind of bs and it became annoying and uninteresting. If the story had to take on a serious note, this plot twist wasn't a very good way to pull it off.

I wish they still did the occasional scene change to what happens irl too. From how the manhua's going, it looks like they're sleeping forever just to play this game.

It's quite a shame though; this started as a hilarious comic!

Tl;dr - I really wish that the story was different from about volume 5 onwards.

This is absolutely one of the funniest manhua I've ever read!!!
It makes you go crazy of how our technology isn't that advanced to make a 99.9% virtual reality game ! Maddening!

It also drives you crazy with passion to read on forever. I NEED to read another new chapter!

Great read, a simple story with good pacing and comedy. It almost feels like a parody MMO with so much comedic input. Art is simple and direct but not outstanding. The pacing reads like a shoujo manga and it does not get caught up in the romances. It is not repetitive, there is no training arcs. It starts small and progresses into an epic scale of companions.

There's not enough character development with some of the main characters. Personally unlike all the other reviewers before me. I liked it, I marathoned it. It is entertaining, it is funny, has a likable MC. I would read this more as like a shounen manga. I like that it doesn't have much romance in it or gives you an ultimatum on which person the protoganist is supposed to like. Art and translation could be better.

Overall 8/10 for me. Don't nit pick and purposely find things you don't like. Give it a try. It is a good read. if you want a very engaging story, then this isn't it, but it has a good story where you can pick it up and read immediately and get engrossed.

This is the best manga that I have ever read. The pages are full of twists and turns. It never becomes a dull day in the world of second life. And I really wish that this would be come a real game for all of us to play. ^^

Hilarious! I've been constantly entertained since I started reading it. The funniest part is that it is actually kind of like an actual online game xD I've been waiting for a story like this for a while now! You have to check this out!

If this were a real game... I might actually consider giving up my real life! This is a great adventure manga and the gender bender is like none you've seen before! You WILL regret not reading this manga and heart-farting over prince even though she's technically a girl!

EDIT: Um, I think this series is going to have drama in it later on based on the novel, but the genre editing is locked... so yeah...

Yeah I agree so much with the people who said it went downhill like no tomorrow. 1/2 Prince started off funny and exciting, and it bounced characters off each other in many-people groups. For me, the part where it jumped the shark was the singing competition + love triangle, because the romance was kind of forewarned, but the wish fulfillment singing literally came out of nowhere. It turned shoujo on me, which, shoujo is fine, but it isn't what I signed up for. It isn't what the series could do well. In fact, it's what the series fails fails fails at. It ceased to be about good friends who have ridiculous fun together.
