Shangri-La Frontier is based on the manga series written by Katarina and drawn by Ryousuke Fuji, which was first serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine under the KC Deluxe label on July 15, 2020. Sixteen tankoubon volumes have been released as of December 2023. The manga adapts the original 2017 web novel story from Shousetsuka ni Narou. 

Crunchyroll describes the anime’s synopsis as:

“When was the last time I played a game that wasn’t crap?” This is a world in the near future where games that use display screens are classified as retro. Anything that can’t keep up with state-of-the-art VR technology is called a “crap game,” and you see a large number of crap games coming out.

Those who devote their lives to clearing these games are called “crap-game hunters,” and Rakuro Hizutome is one of them. The game he’s chosen to tackle next is Shangri-La Frontier, a “god-tier game” that has a total of thirty million players. Online friends… An expansive world… Encounters with rivals… These are changing Rakuro and all the other players’ fates! The best game adventure tale by the strongest “crap game” player begins now!
