A review of DICE which is also known as DICE: The Cube That Changes Everything. It is action-fantasy written and illustrated by author Hyunseok Yun. It does an excellent job at giving the readers an immersion into what life could be like if anything was possible with a roll of a dice.
Overall it’s one of the most enjoyable webtoons that I have read to date with an awesome twist on using OSTs on certain chapters to really make them immersive. A must-read if you like fantasy-action webtoons.
Without giving too much away, the DICE Webtoon is about a group of students who get their hands on a special dice that grants you the chance to better your looks or abilities (height, intelligence). The dice is a sort of game and ‘X’ is the GM (Game Master) who has overall control of everything that happens in this game, they set quests (to earn dice) and they grant you the change in looks or abilities.
This webtoon is available in both RAW and English versions. The RAW can be found on Naver and the translated English version can be found over at Webtoons. Unofficial fan translations of this webtoon are also available in a variety of languages on the Webtoons site.
What DICE (다이스) Is About
A Small Synopsis
What is it in this world that you desire most? Better appearance, grades or maybe even social life? DICE can make your wildest desires come to fruition, play the game, roll the dice and change your life. Dongtae, a Bread Shuttle to the class bullies is given another chance of life after transfer student Taebin gives him an opportunity to change his life forever. Now a single roll can change his fate, what will he do once his luck runs out…
What Is Good About DICE (다이스)
There is no doubt when I say this, but I think this has to be the best storyline that I have read… just when you think you know what will happen, the opposite happens! It’s very unpredictable… it leaves you on the edge of your seat with what will happen and honestly, I love it.
The uniqueness of the art style in this webtoon makes me want to continue reading more and more – it’s just so nice to look at and it feels very balanced between the fights and the scenery. No corners were cut when drawing this webtoon and from what I could tell from the webtoon chapter comments… everyone is in love with it!
We have a nice range of characters and their backstories are very fitting, I cannot go into much details about this as this will ruin it for you… but I can tell you about Dongtae and his traits. Imagine a very short, average looking and simple school boy… who has drawn the short straw and rolled the lowest number on the dice… a very misfortunate child who is destined to fail from the get go. He is very shy, timid and quite the push over at first… but then the dice changes his life around.
Dongtae is one of my favourite characters for a variety of reasons – but I don’t want to spoil anything, so I urge you to give DICE a read as soon as possible!
Not only has this webtoon got a god tier storyline and art style… it also has the perfect chapter length! The chapters feel like they end at just the right points into the story and while they do leave you at a bit of a cliffhanger… this is excellent as typically what happens in the chapters makes you say “Okay, I need to find out what happens next after this chapter”.
I tend to read webtoons on my iPad and I typically have my volume muted, however, by the off chance I had it on a very low volume after watching some YouTube videos and I thought I was going crazy when I started to hear random music! This webtoon has soundtracks embedded into certain chapters and my god, they make you feel even more immersed into the webtoon than you think!
What Is Bad About DICE (다이스)
Honestly, I don’t really think there is anything that I dislike about this webtoon… everything just seems so perfect. If you don’t believe me then go and check it out! I feel you won’t be disappointed.
My overall conclusion for DICE? Go read it. Like now. It’s an awesome webtoon and it will leave you wanting more and more! There are a tonne of chapters currently as well and it’s still on-going so there are plenty more to come!
