Shangri-La Frontier
Volume 1


Second year high school student Rakurou Hizutome is interested in one thing only: finding "shitty games" and beating the crap out of them. His gaming skills are second to none, and no game is too bad for him to enjoy. So when he's introduced to the new VR game Shangri-La Frontier, he does what he does best—min-maxes and skips the prologue to jump straight into the action. But can even an expert gamer like Rakurou discover all the secrets that Shangri-La Frontier hides...?

Preliminary (154/? eps)
Shangri-La Frontier stands as a pinnacle within the VRMMORPG manga genre, setting itself apart from the standard tropes of powering up through friendship. Authored with a clear understanding of gaming intricacies, it’s evident that the creator is a seasoned gamer. Fun fact: the manga even experienced a hiatus due to the author's addiction to Elden Ring.

What truly sets this work apart is its unique approach to Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (VRMMORPGs). It delves into strategic gameplay, teamwork dynamics, and the challenges inherent in the gaming world. The narrative excels in detailing the game mechanics, establishing a vivid world, and highlighting the significance ...

This work is very original for this genre, the beginning is catchy and the characters are rather well drawn and in harmony with their character.

The goal of the hero is presented rather quickly but correctly and it makes you want to follow his adventures.

The game resources are really well used (NPCs for example)

Also, the world of this manga is very beautiful and also seems really vast!
And for our greatest pleasure the monsters are rather original and of course the unique monsters are charismatic !

I highly recommend this work to fans of this kind of manga but even to novices in the genre who will appreciate ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (96/? eps)
Shangri-La Frontier is a manga that drew me in real good at the start and held my attention pretty well for the next 96 chapters.

Discovering more and more about this game world from the perspective of Sunraku was very entertaining for me for a time and I enjoyed the steady drip of exciting quests, new locations, mechanics, equipment and so forth that we expect to see in a good open world RPG. Sunraku himself ...
