Shangri-La Frontier Summary
[nội dung được nhúng]
“Shangri-La Frontier” appears in the modern world where VR games are very popular and the modern generation of children abandons classic games.
In this world there is Rakuro, a classic game player who is not interested in playing new games and only likes to play old games.
He loves the feeling of winning, which is why he chooses such easy games that don’t have much difficulty to offer.
But when everything ended, Rakurou started to feel bored by playing these games over and over again.
One day, a friend recommended Rakurou, the best-selling VR game “Shangri-La Frontier”. Rakurou bought the game out of temptation and logged in with his usual game name “Sunraku”.
But this game is not like any other game because it contains some secrets that not everyone can reveal.
So, Sunraku accepted the challenge and invested his time into the game, as he finally started to feel the adrenaline rush from a VR game!
Why is “Shangri-La Frontier” so anticipated?
“Shangri-La Frontier” is adapted from the manga of the same name, illustrated by Ryusuke Fuji and written by Katarina.
This is Katarina’s first work, but Ryusuke Fuji may resonate in some people’s minds. He is also the illustrator for Attack on Titan’s spin-off manga series “Attack on Titan: Lost Girls”.
The series is also considered one of the best in the manga industry as it won the Best Shounen Manga Series award in the 2023 Kodansha Awards. So, the hype for this anime is justified!
Currently, 14 volumes have been published for this series, of which 12 volumes have been officially translated into English.
The surprising thing about this manga is that it started out as a webcomic and was popular enough that it is now being adapted into an anime series.
