    Default The Gamer (Web-based Manwa)

    I've been reading this, and I've got to say I like it a lot. I'm usually not a fan of web-based manwa, because it feels like half of the space in the comic is just empty black/white and the panels seem to be placed sporadically. However, I like the theme of the game. Real life being a game is a pretty interesting concept. I like the main character a lot, and I'm liking the progression of the story. I'm finding that I'm liking it a lot more than another web-manwa with a similar setting (DICE), too. Can't wait to see how this progresses.


    Anyone else reading it?

    yeah i found it on a manga site i go to (batoto.net) the other day when chapter 6 was posted and read the whole thing, im really excited to read more, i just hope the translators (BAP Scans) keep getting the chapters out (apparently they said they are taking a break at the end of 6 for awhile )


    i still been reading moonlight sculptor and Ark (light novels) i haven't read DICE yet ill check it out

    LMS(royalroadl.com) and Ark are on bi weekly releases now cause the translators (japtem.com) are busy with school so its once every other week, i read both of them so i get something once a week but damn the wait is hard

    I really need to catch-up on my LMS. I haven't read any of it in quite a while. But then again, waiting so long to read it makes it more fun, because you get to read so much in one go while catching up :P

    Currently reading LMS, I will probably be up til 6 or 7 AM based on how much I have to catch-up on (I'm re-reading a few volumes to remind myself of the story... actually think I might read the first 3-5 volumes again just for nostalgia). I'll be sure to check out Ark as well, probably tomorrow after I wake up.

    Already read both. Looks like there's some new updates
    LOL - this is getting amazing.

    Just got completely caught up with LMS and I've read a bit of the first chapter of Ark. I'll probably read more of Ark tomorrow, as I'm heading to bed.

    I wish there were more fiction with this sort of setting.

    wow nice, yeah i feel the same way

    you can checkout the fanfiction section on royalroadl.com http://www.royalroadl.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=14, i haven't read any fanfic in awhile so most of the ones i was reading are probably on hiatus

    but there's a decent amount of stories and i remember some of them being pretty good

    ark has a weird start but its pretty cool

    I wish I was creative enough to come up with my own story based around something similar to LMS. I've stopped and started fiction like this quite a few times, but I can rarely get past the first few pages before I give up. I think one of my virtual reality stories got as far as 20-something pages before I gave up.

    Time like these that I wish I had more creativity and a larger attention span <.>
