It's different from your usual shoujo   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

I just started picking this up (and finished it in two days), and I think that the manhwa is awesome. Being a Shoujo manhwa, unsurprisingly the elements lean heavily towards romance (two hot guys after one girl), but a ton of humour (crack?) and plot elements are included too. I like how it's different from the usual shoujo manga/manhwa though. From the very beginning, it's been established that while the protagonist is biologically a girl, she's been trying to become more masculine, initially because she wanted to prove her bro wrong but later because she found out she may have some tendencies towards violence (or more like she just like the thrill of the kill in game). Her two potential love interests, Gui and Wicked, are polar opposites. Wicked is just like any other male lead in a manga with seeing the female lead being the fairer sex and deserving of protection, but Gui is barely concerned about gender and sees Feng Lan as Prince, letting her take the lead and protecting her if necessary without getting in her way. We end up with a manhwa with gender reversed roles. Feng Lan is the dominant one in the relationship, while Gui is the submissive one. This may be a rather uncomfortable read for those used to dominant guys and submissive girls type of stories, but this manhwa is good in the sense that it's been consistent since the beginning. Gui has always been acting effeminate towards Prince since the start. It's not like Gui suddenly turned submissive only in the last chapter.

In the meantime, about the part so many people seem to be irked about...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I sense that it's the idea of "male pregnancy" and that "it is impossible" that is putting people off. It's always fun to read reviewers' comments whenever they go batshit at mpreg tags.
Setting aside the fact that mpreg IS impossible (as are a lot of kinks on the internet), I recall from the start, Feng Lan's bro has been teasing her about hating pain and that being a female char in game allows her to hide behind her male tanks and avoid taking damage. This then becomes consistent with what hubby Gui said towards the end of the manhwa, when he reminded his wife that she may want a child, but she hates pain - giving birth. Gui has made it clear that he fell in love with Feng Lan/Prince, even without knowing whether this person was a male or a female, and that it didn't matter. From there, it doesn't seem that he had a fixed impression of her needing to behave a certain way just because she turned out to be female. Towards the end, him being willing to go through the worst kind of pain (on her behalf) may be his own love declaration in itself (even if the method will irk many readers). I wouldn't say that the sudden mpreg plot twist is bad or good. It's just different. It's true that the author could have given warning about it first though. Not everyone can stomach the idea of it because we already have a fixed notion of how guys and girls should act.

As with other reviewers, I really liked this one at first. I would've given it a 10/10 in a heartbeat and was calling it my favorite manga (manhua?) at the time. I loved the gender-bender and love-triangles and everything... until it went downhill fast.
Updates were slow at first, but I put up with them. My sister couldn't wait and found the novel and told me what was to come.
NOTE: I haven't read past what was supposed to be the final battle at the time and after this is just what my sis read in the novel and not what I know to be in the manga/manhua.
I didn't like that the story left the game. That was the whole premise and while I would've been okay with them interacting outside of game the whole story was in game and I believe tanked when it was purely outside of the game. I HATED her making her husband be pregnant for her. I got past her ending up with the guy I was rooting against but what Prince of Pain, Blood Elf, and highly respected leader of the game makes her husband give birth for her? That... just... hurt...
The only reason this gets a 2 is because of my earlier devotion. It went so downhill I won't give it anything above a 2 now. I regret reading it and wish I could erase it from my mind if I could make sure I wouldn't make the same mistake twice.

This manhwa was so cool at first, i really like gender bender types so reading this was awesome. But at some point, little by little, it started getting worse. It could be because of the slow updates at one point but never the less, the first half of this manhwa was awesome.

that ending though.....prince afraid of pain so her husband gives birth for her???? What nonsense it that???

I haven't come across any other manhua/manhwa/manga that has a plot line like this, all though there are some that are similar, (SAO), none of them compare to how well this manhua can blend comedy and drama. Admittedly I was kind of just reading it to read it when it got to that weird part
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
where they have that band (luckily it was funny enough to not make me stop reading)
but then it picked up speed again and actually got more interesting. Definitely worth the wait for the sporadic releases.
And if your wondering why it didn't end after ch. 70, then you should read the light novel this manhua is based on.

I was pretty satisfied with the ending.....sensei should have just ended it there....I hope this manga doesn't become one of those ridiculously long, drawn out mangas out there. Other than that, I guess I'm still interested in finding out what happened to Second Life after....

Brilliant from start to finish. Years of reading, and I don't know what my life will be without it! Hahaha! I thought the ending fit very well with the overall message that it's the INSIDE that matters. Genders/relationships/states of being, even, none of them were solid, and none of them stopped people from loving or wanting to help and be with another person. Friends and family and lovers, all that mattered was the inside.

Sure, it was wrapped in a ton of action! (And some great art!) But it's that message of acceptance and love and FUN that makes me love it.

((It DID feel a little rushed at the end, but technically the story was over, so... made sense.)

It had potential.

As stated... it had potential. The beginning was hilarious and for a while, worth reading. But at a certain point, the story just dropped faster than a thrill ride drop zone. They set up for an expansive mmo world, whether dragging on or not, would have been great due to the different characters, comedy, and increasingly more polished artwork. But no. It just escalated into a rushed state of "eh". A lot of the expositions are given at face value without any delicate build up.

And the ending. I won't bother looking up which came first but that twilight ending with him in love with the child...ugh. It felt entirely rushed. If there was an extra chapter that showed her actually confronting the two and such, maybe it wouldn't have been so bad... No, its still eh. The real world threat, nuke, lolidragon's convenience for the final boss plot is just..uh. No strong substance behind it at all. Honestly, I favored the other choice than Gui because they had history and story...Gui is just..Gui? Honestly, all the other romances seem very thin. Even Sunshine's. The only good one is Wolf-nii's. Doll's actually would've been a close second or even better but it was too jumbled up in all the nonsense that the manga was wrapped up in; essentially causing me to care less. And then I had even lesser care for the demon's love. It could have been much better presented but nope. Just a quick btw is what happened.

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.

I don't see why people are saying it jumped the shark and say it suddenly went down hill. sure it may be a sudden change compared to how it started but if you read the novel this is how the author made it to be in the first place and is setting up for the ending otherwise it would have been hard to have an actual ending and would have a high chance of getting repetitive and be like the series that just suddenly end or go on till the author dies or its canceled and has no ending.

this manhua is hilarious and I love the setting and plot of everything. However, the sad part is, somehow, the story is going downhill....
