however Beyond is getting to annoy me a little at this stage cause i hate to see the XiaoCi with ChenXing most of the times and YuChen is not making much moves right now.....though it is pretty obvious that he was the one who did most of the helping from behind.....

This was my fear. We have a month for all the episodes to come out but based on the ending credits it seems like Xiao Ci is with Chen Xing for a significant amount of time in terms of interactions and possibly dating, and a love triangle is a huge part. I don't like love triangles and I can only tolerate them if I can binge it in one go. It is only exacerbated if there isn't enough involvement/moments from our main lead.

His father disappearance and occupation/hobby/dream are similar to Hunter X Hunter... a well celebrated big anime title. The series also reminds me of Twilight... yea that Twilight with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in it... 2 young fresh faces. I don't think this series will surpass Love O2O.

No one has been posting anything here since nearly a year ago? I just chanced upon the show and is nearly halfway there. Apart from both being in set in a University and both revolve around gaming, I find this show and Love O2O very different.


  • Dialogue wise, LO2O is way more hilarious (at least among the few male dorm mates).
  • Acting wise, neither is excellent but BLY feels more believable, though there’s still room for improvement in the emotive department, while for LO2O, both leads totally can’t act to save their lives (the 6 dorm mates of both leads acted way better), but Yang Yang’s good looks saved the show.
  • Game scenes wise, LO2O has pretty good CGI and beautiful scenery (a Chinese period fantasy drama feel) while BLY has more interesting NPC (a European medieval period feel).
  • Music wise, LO2O has a few catchy songs, and they even have one special “period Chinese feel” song that’s for the game itself but BLY’s songs...even the theme feels forgettable.

Have to admit I was quite excited to see the university location scenes because I have visited the university once for an event and saw some of the areas featured, so it feels quite cool to see them on TV but with Chinese actors hanging around.


Will continue to watch on. Although the “budding” relationship between Xiao Ci and Chen Yu isn’t very well developed till now (Ep. 16), the two do look quite good together. His game handle is kinda weird though...全金属雪糕 i.e. All Metallic Ice Cream...errmmm....
