The King’s Avatar (Quanzhi Gaoshou) is a light novel written by Hu Dielan.Sypnosis: Ye Xiu, a professional e-sports player for the online game Glory. He is considered by others to be the best player in the game. However, due to some reasons, Ye Xiu is kicked out from his long term team and made to leave the pro-gaming scene. He later takes up a job as the night-shift manager at an internet cafe where he meets Chen Guo. She is the owner of the cafe and is also interested in forming a new e-sports team. While planning his return to the competitive scene, he keeps playing to develop his skills and find talented players for his team.
The main reason for my post today is to share my excitement💃🤗💃 for the current ongoing live-action series and the upcoming second season of the anime version for The King’s Avatar.
To prepare for the upcoming series, I started reading the English translation of the original novel – Quanzhi Gaoshou Full Novel
The anime version of The King’s Avatar was first released on April 7, 2017, by the Chinese internet streaming platform Tencent. It got a lot of attention and love internationally, and so three special episodes were released for fans on April 27, 2018. Currently, there is a season 2 of the anime series in works, and it was set to release this summer. Unfortunately, the release date has been pushed back a lot, so I am not sure if it has been released yet, but I am looking into that. So far, I have completed season 1 and the OVA (i.e. the three extra episodes), and I can guarantee that it was intriguing from start to finish. I loved 😍😍 everything about it, and that is why I am so excited to see season 2.

There is also an upcoming anime movie called The King’s Avatar Movie: For The Glory. It is set to premiere on August 16th of this year. It is a prequel to the storyline of season 1. The focus will be on Ye Xiu’s beginnings before he became the pro-player that we all know and love. I am also hyped 🙌🏼 for this. Hopefully, they stick to the announced date.

Now for the live-action version. The main cast includes Yang Yang as Ye Xiu, Lai Yu Meng as Su Mu Cheng, Daisy Li as Tang Rou and Maggie Jiang as Chen Guo. It premiered yesterday and will run for 40 episodes. This series is also produced by Tencent. I loved Yang Yang in LOVE O2O, so I really hope that this version does not disappoint. Here is the trailer:
Episodes of the live-action can be found on NETFLIX and WeTV App with English subtitles.
Anyways, that is it for this post. I just felt the need to share how excited I am for all the upcoming and ongoing TKA projects.
So until my next post, take care.
