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....

Give it a shot since it's likable, but overall it's not great

Enjoyable read for the lighthearted romance/harem and for the gender bender. The story could have been so much better had the mangaka been more realistic. the mangaka, for example, did not fully consider how the physical setting tied to the characters responses/reactions. Without thinking of the setting the reactions came off as illogical or as over reactions instead of amusing exaggerations. The mangaka also lacked consideration for the characters motivations, and therefore, how the characters act can't be fully empathized with. Basically the idea is cute, but the story is not reasonably laid out. there are specific moments the story has tension, which was good, and it falls apart. I still recommend reading it since the set up is rare.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
In the beginning, I really loved this manhua, it felt fresh and really enjoyable. Might have even rated it 10, though it was stable 9 after that for a while. At certain point though it started going downhill, as many before me have said. I don't 100% agree with what was said though, since while it probably was sort of going down at that point, I have sort enjoyed the singing etc parts - though I really disliked the whole love triangle. It just wasn't executed well and felt like it ruined the story. When it started really going downhill for me was when they got out of the game and...well, the manhua didn't get much further than that yet, but I can already see the steep slope down. I have read the last two volumes of the novel because I wanted to know how it all ends without having to wait for too long and was disappointed, to say the least. But that's about the novel, not this version (yet). Plus even then the last few chapters in the manhua version were actually enjoyable, unlike the novel when I could only keep facepalming.

I could say that it started going downhill with the NPCs already as that was what inevitably leaves to the revolution etc but I love Kenshin and Sunshine dearly, they were some of my favourite characters. It was soon after that though...

I haven't read a story like this before. At first it was something new, but (like with others) around chapter 30-something I lost interest. It started getting off topic and not really about killing the monsters anymore. I like Prince, he's (I'm using he since I'm talking about her character in the game) handsome; but he can also be dense (at anything) and more into food than romance. I really wish to see more what happens in the real world since people are closer than you think.
In the later chapters you get to see less and less of the Odd Squad.

I really love this series and its in my top ten manga/manhua/manhwa~~
It's really funny and great when your feeling down as it makes you smile right away ^^
I had tons of fun when I first read it and after many rereads the fun of reading it still remains.
I love all of the main characters, even the antiprotagonist Dictator of Life, in fact he's one of my favourite characters. I found that there seemed to be many references in 1/2 prince and most if them I got, which made me pretty happy(you know the feeling when you realise that the author knows/likes a fandom that you also like) . Although to be honest compared to the current/end parts I liked the start of it way more. It was just more about having fun and laughter, now it's too much in my opinion. Don't get me wrong i still like it and its a fantastic series but it just isn't as great as before. I really recommend this to you even if you stop before you get to the parts where it isn't as great as before, personally I find it hard to stop reading a manga/manhua I like in the middle of it though. I recommend both the novel and the manga/manhua as they are really similiar but at the same time it's different. I read the Manhua before the novel and I found that it worked out quite well as I understood some parts of the manhua better after reading the novel. So I think maybe try the manga first and then if you like it read the novel.

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.

What I enjoyed about this manhua was probably the theme; online rpg. It's something most of my generation can relate to (or in other forms, such as online chat worlds etc.). It was always kinda exciting trying to guess who people were in reality.

But this taste for online worlds biases me quite a bit. And I must say, 1/2 Prince is nowhere near perfect. It's also way too boring that all the teammates oh-so-surprisingly stay in the same rather small area in reality. I also find the later turns of events a bit dragging and .hack series-ish.

But nonetheless, it entertained me well enough (atm ch56) and it's an easy read, since there is no deeper plot or unexpected plot twists. Worth reading, but don't expect anything revolutionary.

It's a series that both girls and boys can enjoy biggrin
There are lots of action, and funny scenes, and all the characters are just amazing. Actually, there's not a single character in this series that I dislike. The heroine is Xiao Lan, and she's just funny and cool. Her game counterpart (Prince) is really good-looking.
Basically, this series is very action-packed with a cast of enjoyable characters and lots of funny scenarios.
There's also a love triangle between Prince (Xiao Lan), Wicked (Ling Bin) and Gui. I find romance of the main character in this series hilarious cause she's a dude in the game, so it's basically just one hilarious love triangle between three boys. But Prince is really a girl, and she hides her identity in real life. This makes the romance in the series more interesting.
The happenings start to become insane about halfway through the series, but it's set in a game world, so it just feels kinda natural xD

Recommended. smile
