Hello dear readers, I hope things are going well for you. Some may forget, but the world is weird and wacky right now, but it is important to stay safe.
Since a lot of us are stuck indoors now, we have more than enough time to read and discover new things!
I found this manhwa (Korean form of manga to put it simply) over a year ago and caught up to it pretty quickly.
It is still ongoing, but it is nearing the finale. My guess would be by the end of the year.
It does have a rather sporadic posting schedule, but you can usually expect a new chapter once a week.
Manhwas’ artwork differs a lot from a manga’s. Usually a manga is very detailed and every panel is covered with an image. With a manhwa, the artwork is generally more simplistic, with minimal background detail, but you get color on every page, which a manga typically does not have.
The color for Dice is very bright and vibrant. At times it feels like a neon light show. It’s easy to find what your eyes are drawn to on the page, and the colors really help to put you into the feel of the story.
It’s colorful like a video game, and working along side the story, it helps you immerse yourself with that understanding.
Feels like a Videogame
The basic premise of this manhwa is that these magical dice can boost a real persons’ stats; strength, beauty, intelligence, etc.
The whole premise is set up to be an open-world video game, with quests and missions.
There is a lot of tension between different characters when quests pop up, but what I really enjoyed was that each of the main characters approached the world in a different way.
It is a lot like a video game in that sense; different play styles, different focuses on stats, different quests.
Put Yourself in the World
What I liked most about Dice is that it really made me think about how I would react in this world. What would I do if I was given a magical dice that could make me taller, smarter, better looking, or basically whatever I wanted.
I felt a strong connection with the main protagonist. Not in every sense, but in a way that we didn’t fit in our environments.
Seeing the protagonist change himself outwardly, but staying true to himself on the inside is a great way to write a character.
Have you read Dice: The Cube that Changes Everything? What did you think? If you haven’t read it yet and are looking for a fun, fast-paced fantasy manhwa this should be on your list.
