Have we run that much out of manga that we are doing things that are on indefinite hiatus? That could have always went into hiatus after the production started though.

And that anime cover is a total spoiler isn't it? We would only find out the girl-in-game was actually a guy later I'd guess, ruins the joke a bit.

Then again... This could be the same alley of shit he's been mis-cast in recently, fujo style crap. Wonder if he seeks out this drivel on purpouse, or he can't find other work because he's been typecast. IDK, it's a sad situation

This looks like it can be somewhat an enjoyable ride I suppose. Dunno, staff looks alright to be fair so I have no actual complaints.

Well this looks pretty interesting. We need more female NEETs. And we got Mamiko Noto, who is pretty fun to listen to. Also, Megumi Nakajima's been waking up. Yay.

I don't think takahiro pick this job because he don't have another job (like Kana Ueda)
He already taken contract voiced Ignis(Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINs) for next 3-4 years
More like he taken this job because "Relation" with one of the main staff

Have you read the synopsis ? This is not Isekai... For a good comparison you have Netoge no Yome.

lol my thoughts exactly. I'm guessing it'll be revealed early on since they made it this obvious from a poster
