**TL;DR at bottom* *Spoilers are clearly marked*
The fact that this series is getting rated so low really saddens me. To put it simply, the King's Avatar is great, and hopefully, in this review, I can provide a reason to convince you.

Before I begin, however, I want to preference this is NOT an anime about eSports. This anime does not deal with, nor care about the struggles of, eSports players. It has eSports elements to it in order to logically and naturally bring in the topic of video games and how the main character Ye Xiu is so good at them. Elements of this are glorified read more

Like Sword Art Online or No Game No Life, King's Avatar is an anime that has aroused great interest when the first episodes were aired. Indeed, the fantasy universe and the dynamism of the action scenes are attractive. Also add a strong, intelligent and charismatic main character and you have all the ingredients needed to produce a popular anime. Moreover, unlike most animes about games, King's Avatar really focuses on e-sports with players who live outside the game. (Characters aren't transported into the game like Sword Art Online.)
But the show is properly executed? Meh.
STORY: 3/10

If you read the synopsis, you can continue.
The story is very read more

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

King’s Avatar is a show that made a wave before its actual first episode aired, solely because it was chinese, it looked good and it got people nostalgic about the old days of SAO craziness.
To me, the characters were dull, the story was close to nothing and the aesthetic and sound of it were above average but not amazing.

The story of King’s Avatar is straightforward, having no “tricky” plot twists or high stakes to get the viewers riled up and praying for the characters.
The story takes place in a world where people look up to and give great importance to pro gamers. read more

I've played my fair share of games. I will fully admit that I have played games since I was 4, and I managed to git gud at some pretty hard games, like the Megaman Zero games and Robotech Battlecry. Now, I must confess:

I am not a pro or competitive gamer.

I've never done any E-Sports, nor have I done any real competitive gaming. The closest I've gotten to is dabbling in some online Pokémon battles and some "For Glory" on Smash Bros. 3DS. So, this was certainly an interesting series to look forward to, as while we've definitely had some game-oriented anime in the past read more

TL;DR: Ex-Challenger player creates a secret smurf account to have fun with noobs in this epic MMORPG game called GLORY! In other words, if S.A.O and Log Horizon had an illegitimate unwanted child, this would be it.
[Story: 2/10 , Characters: 2/10, Art: 8/10, Sound: 5/10, Enjoyment: 4/10]

Quan Zhi Gaou Shoul or The King's Avatar hypes itself up as this hardcore e-sports anime that will have fans of online multiplayer games watching just to get a glimpse of the life of an e-sports player. However, does it really deliver at the end? Not really. Not even close to it at all. Though this anime is based read more

Hi everyone, I'm here writing this review cause this anime definitely catched my interest in this season, mostly cause I played a lot of online games and I am defnitely a RPG addicted, or at least, I used to be one.

-Story: 7
If we already saw from SAO, Log Horizon and hack//Series the "trapped in a videogame" plot, this time the subject is for sure something more "actual":
The eSport scene. Putting aside it's an intresting concept by itself that is probably the main reason this anime catched your attention, I felt uneasy by not having a certain knowledge read more

The King's Avatar (Quan Zhi Gao Shou) short review.


Characters - Each character has a goal or reason for being there whether its for redemption, fun, a challenge, revenge etc.

Setting - Mostly based within an MMO game with some E-sports type elements and real life in there as well. Although mostly set within the game itself. So don't get your hopes up for it being an E-sports anime at this point.


Animation/Art - Although clearly good for a Chinese made anime, wouldn't say it quite matches Japanese anime. But is the best I've seen so far out of China and is likely to catch up read more

Since i just watched finish this anime,i shall make a review about this. I will keep the spoilers to the minimum.

To be honest, i have very low expectation about this. At first, I thought it will be a typical anime about the main character getting stuck in the game or going in the game through the virtual device. However, it is about professional gamer, playing games using their computers. This idea is original as i think there is no anime or maybe few anime having contents about professional gamer. The main protagonist is also very strong and overpowered others which is something that I like. read more

What kind of impresion if you heard about Chinese anime? Usually its not that good, mediocre is the best to describe Chinese anime this past season. We have Hitori no Shita, Bloodivores, or Spirit pact.

Then came Quan Zhi Gao Shou or King's Avatar. What kind impresion i got the first time i watch it? Disbelieve. I dont believe this show is a Chinese anime. Because its that good. The art is gorgeous, the story is enjoyable, and the character is goofy, stupid, funny, and sometimes cool af. This is one of the best i ever seen in Chinese anime.

The only thing i convinced this read more

I started to read The King's Avatar light novel months ago, When I knew there would be an adaptation i started to freak out, now we see the first Chinese anime adaptation with a excelent animation and flow, a "original" storyboard and good design.
The MC has a good charisma and a bit funny, betrayed by your team and 1000% Triggered in a new server, wanting to be the best glory player again, good secondary characters like Tang Rou, Chen Guo and the dungeon party.

Positive and negative points:


Animation is great, different from all the Chinese adaptations seen until now, with flow and nice design

Badass read more

People tend to meme a lot about Chinese cartoons in this community, but did you ever imagine that a genuine example of such a thing could turn out this spectacular? Quan Zhi Gao Shou—or The King's Avatar in English—is indeed a Chinese production based on an award-winning web novel series of the same name. While it is certainly not the first Chinese anime that has been produced over the years, I do believe this is in fact the first time one of them has actually gotten overall praise and popularity from the general anime community.

Perhaps the main reason for this is that Quan Zhi Gao read more

Esports, through the years, have yielded amazing stories tempered by colorful and magnetic personalities. It promises a wealth of untapped potentials for stories that can go toe-to-toe with some of anime's best character dramas and captivating sports series.

Sadly, Quan Zhi Gao Shou offers little and captures less of the allure of the narrative weaved by esports. It’s worth noting that the genre tag did not even include “Sports”, given that esports is sports through the medium of video games. It’s a run-of-the-mill redemption action series with the questionable virtue of not having moe or harem elements, which apparently is enough to be praised and loved read more

“The first Chinese anime I watched. The first Chinese anime I dropped. The first Chinese anime I re-watched. The first Chinese anime I cried to. And The first Chinese anime that became the best RPG anime I've ever watched.“

Now I have a lot to say about this show but I shall condense it to make it easier to read. Quanzhi Gaoshou is possibly the best RPG-based anime ever made. Though it does not really go into the detail of skills & feats of players. The show excels in representing the competitive side of gaming, giving the appreciation and admiration it sincerely deserves.

*Based on the first 7 episodes of the show

China, also known as the king of economic growth. Many industries are growing and flourishing and there is one that has recently set foot in China, the anime industry. Until now with little success however with shows such as Bloodivores and Cheating Craft. But spring 2017 brought a ray of sunshine with it, a blooming flower that might be the start of a new anime era. Yes it is Quan Zhi Gao Shou, The King’s Avatar, an anime that presumably looks like it is about eSports another growing industry. In a sense it could be the Avatar read more

For those who are seasoned JP anime viewers, do be surprised of this Chinese anime... I definitely was! First of all, the artwork is amazing... the music is also very fitting! I have only watched 2 episodes but do plan on watching the whole season, omg I was so surprised by this series that I had to sign up to MAL to leave a proper review because I knew there were those who would be skeptical of this awesome show due to it's origin. Trust me, I have tried other chinese anime and thought "ew" lol, I know it's harsh but there are others out read more

I have only watched 5 episodes so far, and are currently waiting for new episodes, with an overwhelmed excitement. I would have never imagined me watching a Chinese dubbed anime before. I have always hated Chinese dubbed anime, or cartoon, or whatever you would call it for. Chinese dub sounds in general so ridiculously bad, but this anime is something different, it is a masterpiece, even though it still sounds very differently, than what I usually like.

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.

The King's Avatar tells 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 read more

I normally do not write a review while a certain series is airing, but my expectation for this show *literally* blew my mind away.

Judging from the cover art of what seems like a generic plot, I watched the first episode of Quan Zhi Gao Shou with low expectations. To my surprise, after the first episode my mind keeps wanting more of those.

Quan Zhi Gao Shou follows a man named Ye Xiu, a competitive player in the online multiplayer game Glory, and is regarded as a textbook and a top-tier pro-player. He was then kicked out of the pro-team, which also costs his position to keep read more
