Widely regarded as a trailblazer and top-tier professional player in the online multiplayer game "Glory," Xiu Ye is dubbed the "Battle God" for his skills and contributions to the game over the years. However, when forced to retire from the team and to leave his gaming career behind, he finds work at a nearby internet café. There, when Glory launches its 10th server, he throws himself into the game once more using a new character named "Lord Grim."

Xiu Ye's early achievements on the new server immediately catch the attention of many players, as well as the big guilds, leaving them to wonder about the identity of this exceptional player. However, while he possesses 10 years of experience and in-depth knowledge, starting afresh with neither sponsors nor a team in a game that has changed over the years presents numerous challenges. Along with talented new comrades, Xiu Ye once again dedicates himself to traversing the path to Glory's summit!

In the recent years China has begun to invest in Anime, and in this case we see the result, a fully animated series with probably some of the best art in this season.

The story is pretty....normal? A guy loses his job over office politics and works his arse off to regain his former glory. (Read the description I won't spoil it for you)

Art is amazing, considering this is a relatively new field in China and that their art is a whole lot better than even some of the more popular series (e.g. Boku no hero academia), its safe to say it won't take too long read more

First of all if you bear hostility towards chinese anime. Don't come here.
Supposing you bear huge distastes towards chinese dub, just turn your back.
Looking for another widespread virtual fantasy game ? Look elsewhere.

However, if you're seeking for something new, willing to attempt something fresh, then please do give <Quan Zhi Gao Shou a.k.a The King's Avatar> a try as it is probably relatively unlike what you have seen in the anime industry so far. You may come to love it, or also detest it but its definitely not a waste of time in my opinion.

You should have a good idea what it's about from the read more

[Updated Episode: 7/12]

If you want to watch a gripping or emotional storyline about eSports, look elsewhere. Might I suggest the 2014 documentary "Free to Play"? It's available on YouTube.

Currently, the best reason to watch this show is because it's main character has done in seven episodes what Kirito couldn't hope to do with two seasons of SAO and a movie: get d*ck-sucked so hard that Ye Xiu's character should just be a walking censor bar when the next episode comes along.

Hello everyone, this is my preliminary review for what is, as far as I know, the first anime about the growing juggernaut that is eSports. It's read more

Anyone who remotely compare this to SAO should have their brain scanned, cause they clearly have a problem. Its like comparing the great wall of china to the back alley wall and saying, "Gee, this back alley wall certainly looks like it had the same amount of effort put in".

Quan Zhi Gao Shou is one of the pinnacle of Chinese WN, it is to Gaming Stories, what "Night Bright Pearl" (夜明珠) is to TS fiction. It is a classic that will never be forgotten and a giant shadow that will cloud the judgement of anyone who have seen it. After reading it, every time I read more
