Blade Skill Online
Blade Skill Online
Manga adaptation: Yes
Our MC, Yuri, always has dead look in his eyes because of his too frequent encounter with misfortunes. One day, he comes up with the idea that his luck may take a turn for the better if he maxes out his Luck stat in the world of VRMMO, and so he steps into the game world under the name Yuri.
He chooses ‘Summoner’ as his job and ‘Bow’ as his weapon—hailed as the strongest of their kind on the game’s strategy guide site—and is raring to go on an adventure, but… they turn out to be the worst job and weapon in the game?!
Furthermore, Yuri also comes to learn that the pure Luck build is ridiculed for being useless in battles. With the triple bad choices (plus the fact that his avatar is a beautiful girl because he picked the option of Random Character Generator!) Yuri falls into despair.
This is an adventure diary of Yuri who will eventually rise to become a player who is known as ‘Raid Boss’, ‘Wild Last Boss’, ‘Why Does a Beginner Weapon Do More Damage Than the Strongest Weapon?!’, and ‘Please Don’t Let the Hidden Boss Wander Around in the Wild!’.
I've read to the end of V1 and think it's hilarious. The series doesn't take itself seriously and develops quickly without dragging things out,
wrapping up in just 4 volumeswhoops, double checked the afterword of V4 and there will be 1 more volume. Very action and comedy orientated, and has great energy and lively dialogue.
The MC's character can be basically be described as a hot blooded punk leader (and some people even call him anego), and the supporting characters mesh with and bounce off of his shennanigans well. I could describe the series as something like Bofuri, except much faster paced and half the characters act like they are hot blooded punks in some manga.
Comes with a recommendation by the author of OSO. The gender bender isn't a focus at all, for those who either like or don't like it. You could easily forget it was a thing at all except when it is used as comedy sparingly.

I’m sorry, I couldn’t focus on the plot summary because of the title that feels like a kid wanted to make a copy of Sword Art Online and put all the words in a thesaurus
@Torka LOL. Well, I could have put the full title including the subtitle, but its a bit long.
