Lu Shuiyin (Riku Suigin in Japanese) is a master of gaming, a skill only known to his classmate Lu Lian (Riku Lin in Japanese). One day, Shuiyin receives a device from Lu Lian for a tomb raiding online game. While Shuiyin is excited to receive the device, Lian is suddenly kidnapped. Shuiyin touches the device that was left behind, pulling him inside the game and trapping him there. What is the imaginary world inside the device? What will Shuiyin find there?

It is a world where two groups of people fight over the power of the gods, which originates from the tomb the mother goddess Pangu (Bango in Japanese). The two groups are the tomb raiders and the tomb protectors. The device Shuiyin received from Lian is called the Monolith, and it allows a normal gamer to go near the tomb. The tomb raiding group plans its attack by recruiting common people in the name of gaming. Shuiyin, as the final tomb protector, must fight against the raiders in order to save Lian.

"will probably write a full review once it's done airing"
Silver Guardian tells a story of a poor and orphaned high school student who also happens to be a pro gamer since he basically spends all his free time gaming.
inside his favorite game he meets a girl who turns to be his irl crush "how lucky" he saves her from a weak boss since he's so op she decides to look up to him and adventure with him "in the game ofc"
and from there starts the busy and unfortunate life of Gin-san.
The anime has an easy go happy feeling but is gonna throw down soon, read more

Overall captivating,
This takes a common "Dragged into a video game" trope but gives it a fresh new take. The main characters are easy to project yourself onto. while also fulfilling normal anime tropes that we have come to know and love. The only negative is the fact that it has a poor first episode. The plot is awkwardly conveyed but if you can make it to episode two you will be hooked.
I've only seen three episodes but i'm already searching all over the internet for the source material since this 10 min episode doesn't quench my full craving. Hopefully they will release the full read more

First off: i don't claim to be good at writing reviews, I just write what I felt about the show in a very subjective way that CONTAINS major SPOILERS!
--> You have been warned.

So let's get to the issues I have with the show:

Everything is unrealistic af.

The MC?
- a poor student attending a school for rich kids? - still somehow believable
- therefore has multiple jobs that cost him all his remaining time when not in school yet somehow able to play videogames all night to the extend to be almost at professional level? - completely unrealistic

The Story?
- seriously, didn't someone check this script before read more

okay, so... first off, the silver guardian is based off a chinese(?) manhua called the last gravekeeper. In terms of translation, the manhua was.... well, lets just say it needed work, but the anime that came out of it, this one, takes the manga and makes it SOOOO much better.

to start off, i guess ill talk about the story. uhm, mainly im not gonna spoil anything, ill do my best to keep things vague. the story talks about a silver haired kid who is working multiple jobs in order to go to school (dont i know the feeling). he's poor and is poorly regarded read more
