Don't give up after ch 35   
Rating: 9.5 / 10.0

9.5 (could have explored some of Yu Wo's jokes better)

I first clicked on it for the name. It was a fun title.

Then, reading the description, it seemed pretty awesome.

Mary Sues can be fun, but they get old very fast.

However, Feng Lan is a pretty awesome lead. She's pretty and uses this to her advantage... until her brother challenges her. Turning out to be a gorgeous male... hm, not that original. (she still takes advantage of her bishieness, though)

Then, it takes a turn to hilarity. Prince's so handsome it's funny.

As the adventure progresses, they suddenly
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
decide to form a band

It seems totally unrelated and the manhua gets... this "fanservice' feel. No, don't get me wrong, fanservice is amazing, but this is where many people stop reading.

It's pointless until later on, when they
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
realize it may have been good to gather resources and players, but did nothing to establish Prince as a reliable and worthy ruler

So... do not fret, Infinite Band haters, this is merely a plot device to introduce new elements to the plot and develop the characters.

The plot thickens and
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
NPCs become sentient.

With these scifi elements, the plot gets gripping again.

I just can't wait for more!

The first few chapters set the manga up to be an original and worthwhile read. I have to say, around about chapter 35, i completely lost interest. The main character seemed promising and defied most shoujo stereotypes but character insight was lacking and plot development was just altogether forgotten. It seemed to be just another excuse for eye candy for readers. Most of the characters had mary sue attributes, i.e. strong, goodlooking, great companionship, never losing a battle, etc and it irked me to no end. Ironically, it was the lack of reality that diminished the quality. Especially, when the characters formed a band. This was completely unneccessary and as stated above, was just for the pleasure of the readers.

However, all this being said, it did provoke a few laughs from me, which not very mangas do so:

I have never laughed so hard from a story and I've read a lot. Yes, it does start out rocky and the drawing may appear weird but that soon smooths out. I really relate to it too since I'm a female gamer and like to play male characters and with blood coated? That's all the more fun.

Ahem. While the MMORPG that it has isn't like the ones we have, it's still hilarious enough to make me cackle or laugh out loud like a hyena. I wouldn't be surprised if my family thought I was insane. It also makes me want to log into a game since the fighting scenes are very well made.

Give this a read and don't let the rocky beginning fool you since every story is like that.

this is the best bishounen manga i ever read. most of it is action and comedy (you can laugh for days biggrin) and it got better with a little romance. this is a must read and you dont get bored reading it twice or even more. the novel has much more details, but the bishies are hot XD. 10\10 yu wo rocks.
what i dont like ...well .... i cant think of it right now but ill add it later.
well this is my opinion ,i dont know about others but i liked the battle scenes, but it maybe because im a shoujo fan.
ps: from the guy with the spoiler the ending rocks .

As stated above, I loved the beginning. It was full of humor and only a tidbit of romance, which bode well for it. I also would like to note that the main lead (I forgot her -real- name cuz I stopped reading months ago but I'm getting back to it...) doesn't have a tragic past... I know. Shocking. I hate it when mangakas/manhwagas have their characters go through a tragic past. It just got boring (?) for me and I would just roll my eyes instead of sympathizing with them so this was kind of a breath of fresh air.

Anyway I stopped reading when
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the lead started a band. Really? Was that really necessary? It got even worse when Prince's fame was so big that people would chase after him. Another thing that I didn't like was when the romance started. Normally I would like this type of development but I guess I was just used to the actual plot instead of the romance so...

Art - 9/10
Story - 7/10
Overall - 8/10

well, i can't say much except that i reckon this is a great manga and it made me laugh HEAPS ^___^. my enthusiasm for this manga has dimmed somewhat because i started reading this maga aaggess ago, and have waited such a long time for the next chapter to come out that i start to lose a tiny bit of interest, but its still cool smile- i still look forward to the updates and all. the best thing about this manga is that it is ssooooo funny, and the story line is pretty good too. i would've liked it if there were more happening to do with the characters in real life (not in the game), but maybe stuff will happen in the next chapter smile

I started this manhua a couple years ago, got fed up in the early chapters, and dumped it, thinking it was pretty bad. Then I picked it up again today, and I'm not sure why I didn't like it back then, because it's pretty cool now. The MMO setting is fun, and (given I'm a gamer) easy to relate to.

Unfortunately, it lost a bit of it's thrill around the showbiz stage; it felt way too cheap and easy.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Prince is, after all, a warrior, not a singer, and definitely not some kind of prodigy who could step on stage without ever having taken a vocal lesson and entrance everyone. It would've been way more realistic if he/she'd got famous for his fighting skills; isn't that what he's all about, seriously?

Also, the harem has started to annoy me a little, because of just how many of them there are, and the fact that there isn't really a principal love interest. I can't keep track of all the people in love with Prince. It feels like a lot of the main cast, who were painstakingly brought up through the first thirty or so chapters, have been sort of superceded.

All that said, though, it's a fun, funny, entertaining manhua with a cool setting and base. Good for a read.

Very addicting and hilarious manhua. I wasn't sure if I'd like it from the cover art but the art inside is actually really well done. The story is beyond words, just a super fun read. Give it a try.

In response to Convalescence, I think the atmosphere of the manhua was typical fantasy MMO fare. Certainly it shares similarities with RO, but I don't see how a fantasy MMO gag manga which draws from typical fantasy MMO could in any way be ripping ideas from a standardized genre.

First and foremost, it's a gag manga, and a funny one at that. Try the first chapter to measure your taste- it is an example of its nonsubtle humor at its adorable best.

Feng Lan is a funny, impulsive girl whose gender is, by circumstance, set as male in this virtuworld...which eventually starts intersecting with her real life, and that's where the drama gets some of its fire.

Later, as the series progresses, it starts to focus on some cheesier arcs and gag love triangles (characters squealing "keep away from XX! mine!" etc.) quite frequently, and the protagonist becoming more arrogant than her humble beginnings, which was when this manhua started petering off for me, when it became less about fighting and more about maintenance. The plot is rather repetitive, the arcs becoming more full-blown in succession, and a couple characters of the main characters are underdeveloped compared to those in triangles.

While the later bits didn't maintain its original humor for me, I still think it's charming enough, and I'm hooked to see these characters through until the end. ^_^
