    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.

    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 <.>

    Yeah. I went to sleep last night with only having read chapter 7. Then woke up this morning and saw there was a chapter 8 released as well. Plus chapters of a few other manga I follow. Pretty good way to start off a Sunday.

    The story behind the powers in The Gamer is kinda weird. Don't want to go into to much detail as I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but it seemed like kind of a stretch. Maybe that's just due to the translation, though? Either way, it's still awesome and I'm looking forward to chapter 9

    Chapter 10 was very nice. Seems like the story is going to progress a bit more rapidly from here on. I'm looking forward to seeing how the protagonist raises in level.

    Since we don't have a thread for it, I'll mention this here. This post is regarding DICE.


    Starting to realize just how much of an ******* X really is :O Kinda surprised, as I was hoping he'd turn out to be a sort of good natured fool character... That is, he likes to have fun but doesn't really want anyone to be hurt. I suppose there's still a chance for that (can't tell how things will end), but right now it seems like s/he's just mean.

    I could tell by the art style and the child-beating at the start that it would have a few darker themes.

    The latest chapter of The Gamer was pretty neat. A new healing ability, trying out the energy bolt ability he learned a bit back, and more understanding on what exactly his class of "gamer" really means.

    The Gamer #47 came out today. I've got to say, I liked the chapter a lot. Kinda sucks that it left off on a cliff hanger, but it's just made me want to read next weeks chapter all the more.

    I'm also surprised at how well the author is at writing. So far I've felt completely satisfied with every single chapter of The Gamer that I've read. That's impressive.

    im still following it pretty much weekly

    like the series a lot, i think the sense of danger seems real for the main character cause you feel like there is so many other stronger ability users around that could kill him (and he is trying to get stronger as quickly as possible)

    also i like the online auction thing he was able to buy things from over the internet kind of reminded me of the hunters website on hunter x hunter, and so far i really like how his character is progressing so to speak

    Is there a game, preferably MMO, that is similar to this system?
