Fun Gladitorial Struggle   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

I picked this up solely on the cover without reading the summary. I expected some boring but pretty story and was drawn in with the first emotionally gripping prologue chapter! It is amazing the amount of development, depth and plot twists Yun Hyunseok has captured.

Points: Comparison on today's materialistic/shallow society (over exaggerated) versus what is moral/ethic. Well established characters and back stories providing a full and developed cast with some character development. Great action scenes, fun comedic moments and sweet (minor) romance. Decent emotions and a very nice play on psychological warfare.

Drawbacks: The over exaggeration can a make it hard to connect with due to it being highly skewed to looks and power and greed over everything else. Only a handful have personalities that shine through the 'improved' looks. Some arcs drag a little, especially with filler fight scenes or pointless fun - though these can sometimes help to better connect with characters. Relatively slow character development as focus is on leveling up, X mystery and back stories. (But that's a personal preference of loving development stories).

Characters (there are many)
Dongtae - main protagonist.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
He starts off as a bullied kid and, with the help of the dice, becomes a powerful hero who holds onto his belief that dice are a tool that can be used to better the world. He aims to defeat X without playing by the rules X has set for the game.


X - main antagonist.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Game master of his cruel game that plays on people's darker desires to overcome weaknesses and compete against others. He is a lonely personality with child behaviors aiming to have friends to play with forever.


Taebin - secondary protagonist (?)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Original dice user Dongtae encounters. He escaped the fallout of X's last game and is against the spread of dice as he knows it will lead to another bloodbath. May prove to be more foe than friend with the secret he carries inside.


Eunju - secondary protagonist (?)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She is the pure, upright character that both male protagonists like. Determined not to be drawn into X's game, she sees the dice as the cause of evil. Unlike Dongtae, she aims to erase the existence of dice altogether. This often leads to conflict with others who have benefited from the dice by escaping lives of bullying, helplessness, and inadequacies. She is perhaps the hardest to connect with as she fails to empathize with others and focuses solely on her own desire for everyone to accept themselves as they are - something she actually struggles with herself due to past rejection and not being recognized for her hard work. Due to recent developments she has pitted herself against Dongtae and is moving more towards an anti-hero role.


Mio - secondary protagonist.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She has a strong crush on Dongtae and provides a light aspect to an otherwise dark plot. She is the most level headed of the protagonist group but also serves as more prop than key player. She helps often enough to be a secondary character rather than background but as of yet hasn't stood out much. Hints of her back story and recent power displays could mean more is to come of her development.


Mooyoung - secondary antagonist.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Hints that he may be one of the true original dicers, he aims to gain power to try defeating X. He has tried multiple times and failed. To succeed, he plays an anti-hero role and will do anything to reach his goal, including killing friends. His link to Taebin is more than just past connections and may greatly change the playing field of the current gladiatorial game set up.


Che-Hyun - minor character, a personal favorite.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
While we know little of him, he seems like a fun and clumsy sidekick. I'm curious as to what his ability is - my guess is clairvoyance.


Inconsistencies:
Adults
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Other than the one who joined the game and went crazy, what are all the others doing?? I mean, kids are suddenly and rapidly changing appearance (major changes overnight), abilities and skills. Violence, attendance issues and such are suddenly on the rise. They're all on their phones and playing with some 'dice'. Is a blocked phone really the only deterrent needed to keep them oblivious??


Stealth
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
During the first arc, we had one character make a big deal about turning off phones and going to a secluded park to avoid CCTVs and other electronic/communication/recording devices so X can't eavesdrop. Yet after that we have our main heroes constantly talking about how to defeat X right in the open knowing he is eavesdropping. If he has the power to change the world...why would you not master a little stealth and strategy?


Favorite scene:
Overnight stay & brain power
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
After Mio and Dongtae start officially dating, she asks to spend the night (indefinitely) and Dongtae's hormones go on overdrive thinking she means more than just a sleep over. We see him losing rationality and being extremely flustered. Great, light-hearted fun. After he starts getting a little too anxious and bold, Mio succinctly puts him in his place and he's left to sleep in his own bed - alone.


Overall - I highly recommend this manhwa. It has a lot going on and is very interesting with it's concept and execution. The characters are fun and their interactions drive the story with dice powers adding incentives and twists. Give the prologue a shot - I doubt most of you will regret it.

Quit calling out on ajaykumaryadav

Those of you who is calling out on ajaykumaryadav are pathetic. Review's exist for people expressing their opinion. So if he/she didn't like that, then it's their opinion. Calling out on someone who doesn't like stuff that you don't like makes you pathetic. So fuck off and let other people express their opinion.
Now as for the webcomic,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I loved it. I admit I hated the protagonist at first, but he is starting be more mature now. But the girl is very biased. God, she doesn't like deicers, while ignoring that before dice, people were getting bullied and she didn't do anything about it before. Now all the sudden that people had dice now, she is becoming self righteous.

I admit to dropping this one, halfway through I just couldn't stand it anymore...To me it just wasn't fun to read it, it was extremely depressing /constantly/ that it felt like a drag to read it. It never got any better and I just found myself getting more and more bored until I just stopped reading altogether. Yes, this story has an unique idea, however that does not mean it is not boring. And then there is a strong idea of how you need to have good looks, smart, athletic etc. to be liked by others, and the importance of popularity. Which is stupid really, because you don't need to be perfect and popular to have friends. So this wasn't really for me, too much drama to the point of depressing and boring....

Partial spoiler, but the general premise here is that instead of hard drugs invading a poor innocent school, magic dice became the new heroin and all the cool kids are doing it. Interesting premise since these dice gamify the world in a believable sci-fi/fantasy sort of way as well as adding in morality dilemmas on top of it.

A big downside for me is how lazy the author is developing the story. Doesn't seem to have enough energy at establishing more unique character perspectives with these bizarre situations. A good example is the generalizing of "the mob" from the author and their actions during school wide events. Granted many would succumb to desires that would eventually ignore their already established morals, but not too many, heck maybe only a few. Many would probably just go for dice in moderation. But what would I know? I never took cocaine and I'm sure a few good who did, eventually did bad to acquire more, but not freakin most everyone.. right?

Probably nitpicking too hard but I had a hard time getting absorbed into this manhwa. Maybe it's because it's not going too hard into the game stats like The Gamer allowing the author to pull shit out of his butt to make the plot work at times. I understand he doesn't want to get tided down with the nuisance, but he keeps briefly showing these stupid radar chart character stats occasionally yet not frequent enough that we as readers still can't establish power levels between characters to any reasonable degree. Yes, I know this shouldn't be the focus of this manhwa, but as more chapters pile on, the more this becomes a battle shounen and the more this becomes a pressing issue.

Surprising twists   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

It's an excellent story! It's a critical view of how people in today's society think, very individualistic, very self-absorbed. But more than that, every time you think the story is gonna go one way...bum! it surprises you with a new twist. The latest arch (ch98 and on) is quite long, but the action scenes are very well drawn.
Ah! one more thing, the female lead might seem annoying, but she has a background story that hasn't been revealed yet. She could end up being as dangerous as the hoodie guy because she doesn't want to change herself, she wants to change something beyond herself.

ajaykumaryadav review is pretty dumb, either he read only the first few chapters or his abilities of understanding the plot are ridiculously low. In fact, the comic is about how ridiculous influential those standards like beauty are and how easily they can manipulate life around you. Also, is about how greedy and shity society can be (maybe too much, as there only a couple of characters who have a good(not too shitty) personality in the whole wc).
Fun read, and the music in some chapters gave a relly nice feeling to them hehe (it was a new thing to me)
sorry for the bad english, not native.

Amazing Story ---- Don't listen to 'ajaykumaryadav'

The user ajaykumaryadav is too biased and has too much emotion towards the subject of physical appearance to give this manga a fair review. What he said made no sense at all and is completely missing what the author is trying to convey.

That being said I personally love DICE. It has a perfect mix of action, drama, and a hint of romance. Many people can relate to the subject of genuinely wanting to change yourself, but the real question is would you put your OWN needs over someone else's? Would you harm them for your own greed? That is what this manga is about, the greed and self anger of humanity, and the struggle for power. How humans really act with such high amounts of power, it shows the real world no matter how dark and selfish it may be.

In my opinion this story along with its amazing artwork deserves a 10. You feel the action yourself when you're reading it and if you read it off the authors website it even comes with an original soundtrack played for certain chapters.

1.every characters here are selfish..jealous.. Stupid and dishonest...no moral////
2.this manga is driven to have.."good looking face"//strong//and become cool///.....and the whole plot
Is forced to move on such morals.....
3.action .....give me break// ..in this manga ""dice"" are more important than even main characters..... They are pretty useless..
3.and romance is weird...male lead want to be with other guys..girlfriend(female lead)..and female lead
..is the dumbest character... She is Madonna and is useless and her character there is to just make male lead jealous.... And portrayed him a loser....she doesn't even like him..
...
..
Guess what our author only like good looking people/strong people and that why the manga is based on that.....

Recently the amount of good webtoons is increasing and this one I`ll recommend to everyone. There is plot, there are supernatural abilities, there is character development, there is action and the story just keeps getting better. Though I found the pure female lead a bit annoying in the beginning but in recent chapters, it is hinted that she has some darkness too, so that makes up for the pure act. Seriously though a very good one.

Idea's awesome, execution not so much. The romance... Duh... Plot... Duh...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The whole thing getting out of hand with more dice players appearing... Duh...

It lacks a flow and has a faint smell of tuna around it... It tries to be dramatic, but it feels forced.
I picked it up as a random time filler and it does it's part, but so much unfulfilled expectations that I can't help to feel grumpy when writing this.
Drawings are nice, I guess.
Giving this a 9 just because I feel like a 'nice guy' (TM), and well, it does help me pass the time.
