Good job, China; you impressed me with this one.
3 February 2018 | by scientiiaaSee all my reviews

--Additional information-- The King's Avatar (Quan Zhi Gao Shou, Full-Time Expert, Master of Skills) is a Chinese web novel, which centers on eSports. Witten by Butterfly Blue, the novel was published on Qidian Zhongwen Wang website between February 28, 2011 and April 30, 2014. It also received the title 'Best Work' in 2013. Another fact worth mentioning is that there are 1728 chapters in the novel.

--Story-line-- The King's Avatar tells the viewer a story of Ye Xiu, who is a professional player in the online MMORPG game called 'Glory.' Glory is a well-balanced game, where the only thing that really matters is the players' skill; the game offers fighting against both other players and NPC enemies. Ye Xiu, also known as the 'Battle God,' is the player that every Glory player knows about, he is a legend, an idol; many people will do everything only to shake his hand. However, when you reach great heights, there will surely be people, who will do everything, even sell their soul to the Devil, only to see you fall. And Ye Xiu life is not an exception. Ye Xiu's friends, colleague, and teammates make him give up on his career as one of the most successful competitive player of Glory.

Ye Xiu now has neither his team, nor the sponsor, nor his life's goal. He finds work at nearby café, where many staff members admire Ye Xiu, but no one really knows his true identity. After a little while, Glory opens its 10 server, and Ye Xiu decides one more time to throw himself into the game. He now has to make a new character and form a new team. Together with his new friends, Ye Xiu one more time decides to dedicate himself to the game in order to become top one Glory player and return his title of 'the best.'

It is very surprising that no anime has ever dared to make an eSports series. However, we do have more than enough these '...and he realizes that he cannot log out anymore' anime. While some titles are still able to make this kind of setting interesting, many simply cannot do that and ruin themselves with fan service and other overused cliché. That being said, the eSports aspect makes this series unique. But it is, of course, not the only positive side of this series; the anime's story-line is able to provide the viewer with enough information about the protagonist of the series-Ye Xiu and it manages to do it that it is never boring for the viewer.

--Art/sound-- This anime has some awesome animation: all characters look different, all characters have a very unique and beautiful design, action scenes are simply mind-blowing, as well as the attention to every detail this series pays. Sound wise, if you have never seen a group of Chinese tourists, discussing some stuff in Chinese, which is simply impossible, to be honest, it might take you some time to get used to The King's Avatar. But when you do, you will understand that the Chinese voice actors did a pretty impressive job voicing their characters: they made it possible for the viewer to understand the emotions of their characters.

--Characters-- The main character cast consists of 4 characters. There are also many supporting characters, who also play a very important role in the story-line. The first main character is Xiu Ye. He is a carte de visite of Glory: he knows almost everything about the game, perhaps, even everything, he wrote many guides, and invented many playstyles. Although, he faces many difficulties, he never loses temper; he is always calm and thinks three steps ahead.

I am not going to describe you the rest of the cast, otherwise I will have to include spoilers, which I am not going to do. All I can say is that all characters are very interesting to follow. Be it a good guy, or be it a bad guy, they receive enough development and it is perfectly clear what they are trying to achieve. Also, as it has been already mentioned before, Chinese voice actors did one hell of a job voicing their characters, which did help the viewer to better understand the emotions and motives of their characters.

--Criticism-- It is an open secret that China is now trying to transform its domestic industry into a global producer of animation. There is even a foreign film quota, which only allows 34 foreign films, both live-action and animation, per year to be screened in China. Anyways, what I am trying to say is that I am perfectly fine with China making its stuff. Anime is becoming more and more average and because of that there should be more people with brand new ideas (like eSports in Quan Zhi Gao Shou.)

I also want to make one thing clear: the source material of this anime is a novel that contains 1728 chapters. And because of that, the anime is sometimes too fast paced and for those who have not read the web novel, some things might remain unexplained. And this is the only problem this anime has. However, they might be explained in the second season, or in whatever they make next, so time will tell.

--Overal-- All in all, this anime deserves 8/10. I would definitely suggest it to all the eSports and even to the non-eSports fans to watch this anime. There might be some things only people playing online games and following eSports tournaments will understand, but it should not be a problem for you. Quan Zhi Gao Shou is a great anime that does focus on the MMORPG elements, but, at the same time, it takes a brand new route that no anime has ever chosen before and I must say it does it pretty damn good. Hopefully, there will be season 2, a movie, or something like a continuation, because this series has some awesome source material.

Good job, China; you impressed me with this one.
