Note: this is a review in progress. As I watch more episodes I will update accordingly. I saw others gave it a 1 in the reviews so I was curious to see if this really is "the worst anime ever" or deserving of just a 1...
I want to make this as fair as possible and keep it short (I will just stick to a quick summary for now)
First: This anime is not going to win any awards, but doesn't seem to be total trash either. I've seen much worst. This one is pretty plain or normal, nothing ground braking.
If you would like to try it
out for yourself. Then is not going to hurt. The episodes are short and casual enough (about 10 to 13 mins.)
Description and uniqueness:
(may contain some tiny spoilers for context purposes)
This anime starts very strange off. The MC is not very likable and everything is just kinda random or awkward (I agree int this aspect with some other reviews). A few episodes later it turns out this anime is of the typical "Virtual online game" world (and thus all the randomness start to make sense a bit more..). But seems to want to explore a different aspect.... the MC becomes aware that his whole world is a lie and the people he knows are basically "Artificial NPCs" (categorized as just "DATA") not real human beings... He also then feels discriminated by the "real players / humans"...
It reminds me of the NPC's from Tron Legacy or Matrix movies.
This topic actually interests me...
You start to ponder a few things (at least in my case since am a NERD and sci-fi enthusiast) like: Should we consider NPC's, Programs or Artificial beings less than "real" people? Do we humans think we are "real" when we might actually just live in a simulation?? Are we basically just "DATA/INFO" too and thus shouldn't discriminate??
Conclusions so far:
Depending on the type of person you are, you may or may not like it. So far to me is "Okayish" and even at times entertaining. Is pretty casual anime and I keep wanting to watch the next one. Nothing that I really hate so far. Might be worth seeing for yourself that is not as bad as others make it out to be.
p.s. Sorry for my English or any other grammatical faults
