Half a year ago, Yun-jae Kim lost his wife and daughter in a car accident, and lives in despair day after day. One evening, his diary completely erases itself, leaving behind an ominous message: "you can see them again". 'The 'Holy Grail' is given to those who overcome the 'game' of 'The World of the Backside', and it is said that if you use it, you can reunite with your lost family ... In the cruel world where only the strongest survives, Yun-jae becomes the only one who knows the future. Will he be able to fulfill his wishes?
Warnings: graphic violence, mental instability, cruel death game. In case you didn’t catch that, the summary was a bit subtle and the cover photo didn’t make me think it was going to be as violent as it is… A broken man, nearly insane from grief at the loss of his young wife and very young daughter, willing to do anything for the chance at seeing them again- this is not your lighthearted OP MC manhua. As you’ll find out in chapter 1 while watching said MC have a mental breakdown. A game where only those willing to fight and kill survive, often coated in blood. It’s not namby pamby, it’s gritty, and it’s honestly pretty good. The art is really rough in a lot of places, flat coloring with barely any shading, but it fits the violent world pretty well so it’s fine. The story keeps you interested, even if it’s a pretty straightforward ‘get exp, be the strongest, reach goal’ kind of story. I’ve been pretty impressed at the side characters not being all cut+paste NPCs. All in all, I’d give it a chance so long as you aren’t expecting the best of the best quality.
It got boring fast. Nothing special about the setting, and the MC is the only interesting person. I think I'll try this again in a few weeks.
