I really like this manhua. In my opinion, it is one of the best gender bender mangas I've read.
If you are familiar with this manhua, share your thoughts on it
If you are not familiar with this, you should definitely give it a go!
The summary is below for those who doesn't know the storyline.



Synopsis:
1/2 Prince is about Feng Lan, a wistful, yet cheery, 19 year-old girl who shares the same interest as her 19 year-old twin brother, Feng Yang Ming, to play virtual reality games. After being challenged by her brother, she is determined to become a male warrior in Second Life and prove her gaming skills to her brother without using "female benefits" in game. While trying to get the upper hand on leveling Feng Lan logs into Second Life too early and ends up being the first player ever to log on. As a reward for this, the Second Life superiors grant her wish to change her gender, an otherwise impossible request. Thus begins her adventures as an elf who is too stunning for the girl population to leave alone.

(source : wikipedia)

[NOTE] The MMORPG game in 1/2 Prince is a virtual reality game where everything is 99% real, including sensation. So you can feel pain, and your character is also designed to look like yourself. The setting of this manhua is in the future; therefore, technology is quite advanced.

Comments:
If you have ever played any MMORPG games online, you'll love this manhua
This manhua mainly takes place inside an MMO that the girl is playing.
Her character is a guy in the game, hence the gender bender factor

Here are some pictures from 1/2 Prince


Here are some fan art that I found online. They do not belong to me.

According to the scanlation website of 1/2 Prince, there won't be a chapter 37 this month (October). We have to wait til November 5th for the next chapter
And yes, out of all the gender bender mangas I've read, 1/2 Prince takes the gold

I too love this one! I've always found playing around with gender expectations to be fascinating and this manhua is totally awesome at messing around with them. Although my first was Ranma 1/2 and I think I'll always love that the most deep down. But I am totally fascinated and in love with 1/2 Prince right now. Prince, we love you!

Oh yeah, the second reason I love it so much is that it takes place in a game! A virtual reality game, no less. I have always dreamed that our latest technology would hurry up and get there. (btw, I'm a gamer if you couldn't tell )

I also have a love of strong female leads..... oh wait... ummm, I mean male? female?..............

*expectantly waits for an anime to be made

I use to play MMOs, so it completely cracked me up xD haha

I am also waiting for an anime to be made from this manhua, but I don't know if there's even a high chance that a manhua will be made into an anime... since the original is in Chinese... hm...

I have read from somewhere that the mangaka was looking for someone to sponsor and make an anime but they haven't found one yet...well that's I 'heard' (or rather, read) not sure if it's true or not...but I will look forward to it if there is an anime on this manhua

I love this manga too~ I bought the manga in my country~! But it's kind of expensive but I guess it's worth it since I can guarantee to keep it for a lifetime

It's one of my top favorites.
Hilarious, fight scenes, bishie (Prince, Kenshin, Gui, Wicked...eye candies!), the firls are cute, adventure, interesting storyline...each character is well developed & funny in their own right with a fair amount of charm that draws a reader in. :3

YES!!! It is one of the best stories I have read in a long time, and I can't wait to be able to finish it.

But I feel I must point out a very important fact: The manhua is actually based on a completed novel series by Yu Wo, spanning 8 volumes with an epilogue. If you know Traditional Chinese, you can go onto Yu Wo's blog and read the entire thing. If you only read simplified Chinese, there are other sites you can read.

There is, in fact, a Yu Wo approved translation group for the novel, called Prince Revolution! They've just finished Volume 2 (not caught up to the manga yet), and Volume 1 is available for .pdf download. They also started a forum where a group is looking for actors to make a Drama CD in english. Check it out if you're interested!
