The manga ‘Overgeared (Team Argo)’ tells the story of Shin Youngwoo, who lives a life without luck. Overgeared (Team Argo) was doomed to be an underachiever. Despite living with his supporting parents and intelligent younger sister, Youngwoo struggled in the famous virtual reality game ‘Satisfy.’ However, his fortune was about to change.
While on an exploration, Youngwoo serendipitously discovered a legendary book that grants the ‘Legendary Class’ to its reader, an unseen achievement. Youngwoo planned to sell the book for a high price. Nevertheless, due to his bad luck, his dream was short-lived because he had to use the item himself. From that day onward, Youngwoo’s life was transformed forever.
The protagonist transforms into a hero in the game. As a result, the guild ‘Overgeared’ was formed to support Youngwoo. Gradually, ‘Overgeared’ becomes one of the strongest guilds. Youngwoo’s reality also changes drastically. He repays his family’s debts and buys a new house for them. In the end, Youngwoo becomes a master in both reality and Satisfy.
The moral of the story is that misfortune can be turned into a blessing. Diligence and determination can change one’s destiny. With the help of true friends, one can achieve extraordinary things. Overall, hard work and persistence can enable underachievers to become overachievers.
