I love the way they upgraded their rig. I don't think I've ever seen a realistic looking gaming pc in an anime before. The mismatched colors bugged me a bit, but she probably bought the components far apart from each other on sale or something. Heck, that's why I've got mismatched monitors just like that.

First ep was kind of sweet, but no matter how nicely they dress it up that guy is clearly catfishing. He lead on what he likely assumed to be a guy for months. One could say our NEET MC is guilty of the same thing, falling for and leading on what they clearly assume to be a girl.

You can't blame her for that. She just wanted to play an MMO with an avatar she thought was hot. She was minding her own and didn't approach anyone.

Haha, this hits too close to home. I'm a 27 year old NEET myself but I pretend I'm not. I've even figured out an 8 hour timeframe when I can show up online freely to give off the impression I work full time. Other than that I sign off from Steam and the like; since only a few of my net acquaintances are NEETs themselves it doesn't affect much since it's not like there's anybody online whom I could do something with, they're all at work/uni. When needed (so almost never, fortunately the people I talk to have enough common sense not to ask people online about their personal life) I just say I work at a local super market chain so it's not like I act like some bigshot but I'm deceiving others nonetheless.

So yeah, I can totally relate to this. The show itself isn't particularly great, in fact it feels somewhat poorly made (although I assume source material is a bit better and this is just adaptation degradation again) but I have 'fun' (sometimes less so because again, this hits too close to home) following it.

These people should dump their life savings on black and let it ride, they've clearly got cosmic levels of mind blowing luck.
Two people who are dating on an mmo almost buying the same thing at a super market, big coincidence but possible. Those same two people running into each other (literally) again, and swapping emails at a hospital when one of them seems to rarely leave her house, aint no way in fuck that's happening. Them some lightning strike odds right there.

He complains about all the attention he gets, yet still pretends to be a girl. I'm confused, am I supposed to feel sorry for him or something? I can't picture anyone watching this anime and not thinking "just stop pretending to be a girl and you wont have that problem."
I bet they'll have some really retarded reason why he's doing what he's doing, like playing in honor of his dead sister who looked like that character or some bullcrap like that. I don't really care. The whole catfishing issue really undermines just about everything he says and does.

Up till this point I was thinking how in online games most player characters look identical with maybe some minor changes in color pallets, and occasionally you get the people dressed like retards. This was a nice nod to that, but there should still be at least a few dozen characters that look like each of our main characters.

I don't understand this. Why does she need these cards? Can't she buy stuff in-game without them?

I used to buy cards like that for online games I used to play for premium membership because I couldn't use my parents' credit cards. I thought she was doing so for the same reason but that "Electronic Money Maintenance" machine, which I think might be an ATM, kind of throws that out the window if my assumption it is indeed an ATM and she could just use her credit card instead in which case pic related.
>>29771
I would agree if her eyes weren't drawn weirdly and she didn't that face that makes her look a bit crazy.
Also maybe if she cleaned herself up a bit that could work too and she could snag herself a nice man to treat her well so she can kick him to the curb when she's done with his wallet.

Well, shit. As if double catfishing wasn't bad enough, this anime just had to dive bomb into NTR territory too.

As of ep6, This is the run down to the best of my understanding. (and I've really struggled to understand this.)
This 30 year old woman quits working and becomes an MMO addicted NEET who plays with a male character.
She then meets a man in the game who plays as a cute girl and they become BFF. Neater one knows the other is the opposite gender of their avatar at this point.
Things go well for months, they made friends and become a cute unofficial couple in the game.
Cat fishing guy bumps into NEET woman offline, not once but twice and accidentally knocks her out on the second run in. He takes her to a hospital and watches over her and so on. She's grateful, and he crushes on her. She kind of does too. They awkwardly exchange some basic information but struggle to think of reasons to contact each other and things are left at that for a while.
Catfishing guy tells his friend about the NEET girl who he has a crush on. Friend recognizes her and realizes they used to work together. Friend takes catfishing guy's info from his phone and uses it to ambush NEET girl at the supermarket where the other two first met. One can assume this is to set up a date for catfishing guy, but the friend instead he pressures her into going out with himself.
Friend doesn't even try to hide this from catfishing guy and instead brags about it, and how he uses the guy's info too. Rather than seeming angry or upset, catfishing guy is just slightly bummed out.
NEET woman tells catfishing guy about her problems in game, at which point catfishing guy realizes they're the the same person. catfishing guy does nothing to stop the date or convince her not to go.
NEET woman leaves for the date, but messes up which day of the week it is.
Catfishing guy knowing she's leaving on the wrong day due to in game chats heads out to the meeting location.
Friend character calls NEET woman at which point she realizes it was the wrong day, and he realizes male catfish is there too. Rather than be upset he finds it amusing and asks how she looks. Catfish goes beta mode and while friend is on speaker encourages her telling her that she looks exactly like what his friend would like (which is contradictory to his own preferences).
Friend encourages make catfish and female NEET to go out. One could be forgiven for thinking this was still part of his plan to set them up, but it wasn't. He still very much wants to Bone her.
So after the nice evening they spend together, it ends with male catfish convincing female NEET his douche of a friend isn't such a bad guy, where as she really had little interest in him and was only pressured into going out with him. Catfish even seemed to suspect this but still went full beta anyway. Now friend is dating NEET, rubbing catfish's nose in it, and catfish is being her bff in game.
I've got half a mind to just drop this here. This is like what, 12 or 13 ep? That means we're likely gonna have five or so more ep of NTR bullshit with catfish crying about his best friend fucking the girl he likes and not doing anything about it until the very end when they break up and we get a very vague hint that these main characters possibly got together.

You know, it's nice seeing anime centered around adults, it's just a shame they only act like adults in the worst most disgusting possible ways while retaining the most obnoxious immature traits of kids.

Damn, just picked it up recently as a side-watch and I haven't gotten that far yet, and I think I'll stop if it is going that direction. I'm pretty fragile with that sort of thing, it tears me up pretty bad. Do keep us updated if it goes against your expectations.

I know what you mean by that too. It's the same sort of problem I have when things try to be 'realistic' to deliver a point. I drown myself in escapism where things are sweet and rosy because I can't stand the way the real world is. Shattering escapism like that is just cruel, like having a sweet little story like it started out as turning into something that soul-crushing to watch.

Complete nonsense. There are only 10 episodes and your predictions are as wrong as could possibly be.
>>29827
You can keep watching safely, that anon is exaggerating it way out of proportion. There is no NTR and there was never going to be. Koiwai was trying to set up his bro with Morioka, but Sakurai is about as dense as Jun from Tomo-chan so Koiwai kept teasing him in an attempt to get Sakurai to finally admit to his feelings. Which is what happened in today's episode. The last two episodes will be Morioka and Sakurai getting their relationship and life together in order.
>> No. 29831 [Edit]
>>29830
>Koiwai was trying to set up his bro with Morioka.
I kept thinking this HAD to be the case, as no friend/bro would be that much of an open asshole to their friend. It just felt like he was taking things too far with her. Besides the fact that he never seemed to mention his friend while asking her out, and he had no idea the two of them would meet up on the wrong day. I half expected him to send his friend videos of him fucking her from the way things were going. All in all, he's going about it in the most bizarre way possible which is just begging for misunderstanding. I mean, maybe Sakurai just wants his friend to be happy even at his own expense?
>> No. 29832 [Edit]
>>29831
>and he had no idea the two of them would meet up on the wrong day.
I thought this was a pretty obvious set-up on Koiwai's part with the information he fed both Morioka and Sakurai and how he acted on the phone. Sure he couldn't know for certain that Sakurai would bite and go to the meeting point, but it was a fair enough assumption which proved to be correct.

The only way that set up works is if Morioka and Sakurai are communicating and Morioka tells him when she's going. The problem is Koiwai doesn't know they're BFF in that MMO at that point let alone talking offline. If he knows they're talking, why not back off then and let things take their course? Besides all that, If he knows they hung out and had a night out together, why still go out with her the very next day? His job should have been done there. A wing man should exit the stage the second a connection is made, not make things unnecessarily complicated by hanging around and dating the target girl he's setting up with his friend, getting her drunk, and sending his friend photos of her drunk and passed out with messages about how he'd like to take advantage of her. It risks not only screwing with Sakurai, destroying their friendship, and screwing with Morioka too. What if she ends up falling for Koiwai only to be devastated if it turns out he's just using her? What if she ends up feeling manipulated after they've been toying with her all that and develops issues trusting men? What's so hard about just setting the two up normally? Even if that was the intention in the end, surely they could have reached it in a better way that wouldn't have made Sakurai go on suicide watch.

Looks like part of a heatsink that would channel the air out of the pc, but last time I saw something like that was over the cpu of a prebuilt pc from 1996.

The way ep10 ended and 11 started I thought maybe they were skipping ahead a bit and the characters were moving in together. Were that the case I might have declared this the single best ending to a romance anime ever. Actual outcome was a bit disappointing but at least they're 'sort of' a couple at the end of the day.

I marathoned it yesterday.

Basically 'You've got mail' in MMORPG version, and I'm a fan of neither. I mean I do love romance and the premise was ok, but didn't hit home; maybe it lacked true conflict.

Mori-mori was really cute, though (I kept hearing Sawako peeking through her voice). Would have loved to see more of that killer body of her.

being ecchi in a romance thread is against the rules of common courtesy and good taste.
