Fumiya Tomozaki is Japan's best player in the online game Attack Families, commonly known as "Tackfam." Despite holding such a revered title, a lack of social skills and amiability causes him to fall short in his everyday high school life. Failing to have any friends, he blames the convoluted mechanics and unfair rules of life, forcing him to give up and proclaim himself a bottom-tier character in this "game."

After a fateful meeting with another top-tier Tackfam player, Fumiya is shocked to discover the player's true identity—Aoi Hinami, a popular, smart, and sociable classmate who is the complete opposite of himself. Aoi, surprised at how inept Fumiya is at everything besides Tackfam, decides to assist him in succeeding in what she calls the greatest game of them all. Through the gruesome ordeals of social interactions and relationships, Fumiya begins to advance tiers in the glorious game of life.

Mixed Feelings
Tomozaki is cringe-worthy; both the anime and the character.

He lacks self-confidence, cannot understand social cues, has no self-awareness, and has given up trying to make life better. He's an arrogant high-school student who disdains the rules of society without intentionally breaking them. He dresses poorly, doesn't style his hair, slouches over, and can barely hold a conversation with classmates. That makes him the ideal protagonist for an anime that understands the rules of high-school romantic comedies—and it knows how to break them. An arrogant, but earnest, speech introduces Tomozaki.

I want to iterate this before all else being it’s important: This is not nearly as gimmicky as the synopsis puts it. Not only is it arguably one of the most fascinating and culturally relevant anime that has aired in the last decade or so, but it’s a show that contains genuine character exploration and growth.

I can’t blame you for thinking that sounds impossible based on the surface level display this show gives off. Though it’s simplistic and very much adapted from a light novel, it’s fully aware of both its audience and the landscape of anime similar to it. It demonstrably stresses the ...

Life is nothing but just a game. A game of life that is! Every decision you make will affect what's going on around you, especially your classmates.

Tomozaki Fumiya, our main MC here suprisingly is the best gamer in the popular online game "Tackfam". Despite that, he is actually the bottomless-tier character when it comes to socializing. Lacking social skills and also have a slightly unkempt appearance. Then later meet Aoi Hinami who is a god-tier character, an opposite to Tomozaki-kun. With her social skills, Tomozaki-kun embarks on a journey to become a top-tier character in the game of life.

Throughout the episodes, you'll noticed Tomozaki-kun ...
