Ten years ago, at the peak of the VRMMO development industry, a game titled "Kiwame Quest" entered the scene with potential like no other. Boasting a colossal total of 10 sexdecillion branches of possible story scenarios, this game pursued ultimate realism, ranging from humanlike NPCs to the perfect replication of all senses and physical abilities. But it soon became apparent that the game was too realistic, and the popularity of VRMMOs in general gradually began to plunge.

At present, due to an accident a few years prior, the high school student Hiroshi Yuuki now immerses himself in full-dive RPGs as a form of escapism. After failing to acquire the latest version of his favorite game, Hiroshi stumbles upon a game shop and meets its beautiful clerk Reona Kisaragi who convinces him to buy a copy of Kiwame Quest so that they can play together.

The first time Hiroshi plays the game, he marvels at the realism it offers. However, his astonishment is short-lived as he sets off a series of misfortunes, quickly realizing that the game is even worse than his already stressful life. Nevertheless, Hiroshi still finds himself logging on again despite his growing contempt for the game. With no do-overs in his current disadvantageous situation, Hiroshi only has one goal—clearing the game!

Ever heard of this saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"? Well, this anime brings that definition into a whole 'nother level.

That said, this show is shitty levels of wack trash perception, and so are all of you in real life. I pity those who went in thinking they would experience the typical "serious" fantasy show, without thinking in the back of their minds that this is MEANT to be a comedy first and foremost.

In order to understand this bait-and-switch of a conundrum, ask yourself: What is "anime logic"? The smart-ass in me would've said something like this: "“Anime logic” is read more

You know, the worst thing about a show like this is that deep down within, there is a reasonably competent, even funny and interesting anime buried within, that thanks to incompetent writing or directing or whatever will never see the light of day.

Full Dive is terrible and I'm the kind of person who enjoys the stupid dick jokes from Sentouin Hakkenshimasu and held them in high regard. One of the biggest issues with this is with the characters. My God, Hiro has got to be the one of the most insufferable whiny unlikable twerp in anime (not the worst, that dishonor goes to Ouma read more

I debated back and forth internally about whether or not I even felt like doing a review for Full-Dive RPG. Ultimately, I decided I needed to let people know about this show. If you thought this was another VRMMORPG Light Novel cash grab, you would be wrong. This is genuinely a unique anime. Uniquely bad, that is.

SA…I mean Full-Dive, is one of the biggest wasted opportunities I’ve seen in some time. Episode 1 grabbed my attention and genuinely had me laughing out loud. I remember commenting in discussion threads that this would be the next Konosuba, and how funny it was. I could not have read more

Recommendation: Don't waste your time, this show is bad and not in an entertaining way. Slight spoilers below.

Welcome to One Joke: The Anime. From the paragraph-length light novel title of this series, you can probably already tell what the one joke is. Hiro, our main character, is pathetic and cringeworthy beyond belief in real life and the game he tries to play as an escape only piles on the misery. Usually in a story like this, there would be a little bit of the protagonist being pathetic before growing into a heroic figure the audience can actually find respectable. Well, read more
