You shouldn't be discouraged by the gender bender factor, because its only there for the major comedic effect. The manhua deals with a game world, and has good action scenes. I'd say it is a cross between shounen and shoujo manga with well paced action, and just enough romance to not turn it sappy. You see great character development while enjoying the awesome comedy that is bound to make you laugh in every single chapter. The interactions between the many different and unique characters make for a great story. Ofcourse i must mention here that the story is brilliant!. If you pick read more

Well, I didn't expect much seeing how this is the first manhua I've read, but, 1/2 Prince actually turned out to be my 2nd favorite read. Manhua, manga, manhwa~ They are all the same, really =P. Anyways, 1/2 Prince is outstanding and I'll tell you why.

I gave the story a 10 because, well, it appealed to me at least. I like the whole virtual world thing and the strong female character, Feng Lan. She has a 19 year old twin brother who really doesn't think a girl can be good at a video game. She is angered by this read more

The cool and perfect prince who fights mercilessly and bloody.. and won the hearts of majority females and some males.. is actually a girl who can't read map, and drools at the sight of food.

The artwork of this manga not really fantastic, but it's the story that matters. I've read the completed novel at least 3 times, and it never get boring, so you can be certain of it. Maybe the artwork will get better as it goes..

If you are looking for a story that keeps you laughing... this is the one to read.

This is my first review - and probably my only review, it might be kind of rough but you get the idea.

When i saw the synopsis of the manga, I immediately thought of the Maplestory anime and what a fail that turned out to be. At first, I thought 1/2 would be a fail of a similar nature. I was so wrong. Even though it is orientated in an imaginary world, the world of second life is one that seems unbounded by any restrictions. Everything that goes on in the manga never fails to surprise me and make me burst read more

Both are about a virtual reality game. 
Fantasy world (1/2 prince is in a game though), bendering them genders, fighting, and drama stuff (like getting all familiar with people who might be considered enemies). 
Both Manhua fall under the virtual reality MMO (VRMMO) category.
Yureka leans more towards the action adventure features of what you might find in a MMO, while 1/2 Prince comes with the addition of romance.  
Half Prince is written by the same author. The sarcastic humour is very similar and it also has a lot of adventure.

These two excellent series have a lot in common: good humour, original plot, romance that is not suffocating, strong heroines and action happening in another world.

Accel World: 9 1/2 Prince: 9
Both basically a virtual reality fighting game with romance in between the fighting. Amazing art work on both parts, 1/2 Prince a bit more light hearted and all in good fun, but intense at times. Both are 9's almost hitting 10 part, depending on their endings. Accel has an incredible amount of potential in it as you begin to learn, like 1/2 Prince they gain great comrades  read more
