The Silver Guardian (simplified Chinese: 银之守墓人; traditional Chinese: 銀之守墓人; pinyin: Yín Zhī Shǒu Mù Rén) is a Chinese web manhua created by Ling Meng and illustrated by Ming Xung. It was published by Tencent[1][2] through their Tencent AC Web Comic service, compiling the series into 237 chapters. A Chinese-Japanese anime television series adaptation produced by Emon and directed by Masahiko Ohkura premiered on Tokyo MX on 1 April 2017.[3] The series is licensed by Funimation.[4] A second season premiered in January 2018.[5]


The story follows a High school student and intense gamer Suigin Riku as he attends the prestigious Shinryou Private Academy, a school for the elite and the wealthy. However Suigin is anything but; in fact, he is very poor and has to work many part-time jobs just to pay for his tuition. One day while he is working a pool cleaning job one of his many jobs, he sees a cat drowning and without hesitation jumps in to save the kitty. To much surprise, it turns out he can't swim either and flails around drowning. Luckily a girl came by, by the name Rei Riku and saves him. He didn't know this but she was the daughter of the game developer that created his favorite game.

He also meets another girl a new friend he meets in Dungeon Century, his favorite online RPG. However, when it is announced that the game is scheduled to shut down he is heartbroken to know that his adventures with her are coming to a close. However, after the game is shut down he finds out that she and Rei Riku are the same person. Later he receives a new game to replace Dungeon Century—a tomb raiding game called Grave Buster. But when Rei is suddenly kidnapped, Suigin is pulled inside Grave Buster to save her.

Gin no Guardian follows Suigin as he fights through Grave Buster to save Rei, while uncovering his past.[6]
