Episode is out on CR. Lol, title is apparently "♀ IRL, ♂ Online"...

Looks like the main girl (Moriko) is a NEET and she even admits herself that she chose the path. She also makes a "hot guy" character in a fantasy MMO game named Hayashi. The themes of the show seems to poke fun at the lifestyle of a NEET.

Not impressed by the visual style of this anime yet although I will say that it gave me a few laughs at times. It doesn't seem the show takes itself seriously and is pretty lighthearted in nature.

When I read the synopsis for this, I had high hopes.

Well, the episode was ok and kinda funny, there's also a lot potential.

Looking forward to more.

I liked the episode and the protagonist, I also watched by the CR, I thought that this anime would only launch on the 10th, but gladly it came out sooner!

I liked it a lot. Seems like a Gender-swapped romance is incoming~

@WinterFB the first episode was released specially today on GYAO yahoo.
Seems like the regular broadcasting is on Tuesday.

It's so weird watching a girl pretending to be a guy and a guy pretending to be a girl hit it off in an MMO yet at the same time, these two are so adorable with it lol

I'm gonna look forward to watching this and I can't wait until they release who they are IRL too (I feel like they might be childhood friends too even - Via another MMO of course)

I've been playing MMOs for years, and so far only a single time I found a girl playing a male and the reason was similar to males playing females "Don't want to watch a dude/girl butt all day long". I actually only played male characters up unting a couple years ago. I always asked myself why people played gender-swapped characters (didn't know about the above answer yet); so decided to give it a try with a female alt...well since then I've only been playing female characters xD. I think I made around 10? female alts in gw2 alone..That game especially has an "endgame" focused around fashion wars, and doing it with a female character is a whole other story. Not to mention that I tend to like female characters animations better, usually.

Well that was quite the digress..anyway I liked the premise of gender-swapped MCs in an MMO. I think this might be a very average anime; but nonetheless I still think I'm going to enjoy it, based on what I've seen so far.

Wasn't sure if I'd like it but it grew on my as I watched it. So far it's light, calming and very sweet.

Pretty good first episode. Moriko chose to be a NEET and plays a lot of MMOs. She created a hot guy character in a new game. The person she met did the same thing, but it was a guy playing as a girl. They are so adorable together. Looking forward to see more.

I really enjoyed this episode. They definitely nailed the "Remember what is real world and what is game world" trope which was good to see. The anime itself felt simple but i feel like it works for this anime.

Moriko just made weird noises at points in the anime (like when she was lint rolling her carpet) and I LOVED IT! I thought she was super adorable.

I enjoyed the balance between game and real world moments as well.

Also Christmas in episode one? great start!

Op and Ed were really enjoyable as well.

I don't mind a girl playing the role of an ikemen, but the other one does look weird for acting that way. x)

Enjoyable episode. The first boss reminded me of the hamster in Overlord. xD

That face. :3

To be completely honest, i was expecting from this to be another fujobait.

Guess i was wrong...

This was actually really good, cant wait to see more. I hope that the "gaming" and "real world" stuff will be 50/50 in this, like in netoge no yome.

Elite NEET! She also have a double monitor set-up and I love her reactions while playing the game. Remind me of myself, good old time. I am sold, looked like there are going to be some light-hearted drama with ep 2 preview. All in all, this looked really fun and enjoyable so far.

Pretttyyyy fun start.

Definitely loving Moriko so far. Curious to see why she became a neet, and what those few frames shown in the OP were about. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Bit awkward at times but overall pretty fun

Not sure why it came out this early though but whatever, I'm not complaining

Well, It's just a normal MMO anime, but I kind of enjoyed it because the two mc's are both using the opposite genre and are falling in love. A bit cringey at times, so I paused it once and cringed (NOT AS MUCH AS ORANGE), but I guess it's okay. One thing though, it's not realistic. If it was, she would have been called a noob, and a retard at the beginning, then a Try hard at the end.

I like it. The female lead is both hilarious and sympathetic. I hope they will play the romance right.

lol it's pretty enjoyable! we already know the blond guy is the pink girl, but I'm curious to see how they'll find out about each others' real identity. Seems like a bunch of the team members have their own lives outside of gaming :)
I'm looking forward to the next episode. Also, MAL, pls change the status to currently airing

This anime reminds me so much of my youth that I got all excited watching them hit it of online, lol.
Really great start I think. But I might be biased since I am a total sucker for this subject

aaaaa this was so cute!!! i'm glad it didn't disappoint :-)
this is going to fill the watamote-shaped hole in my heart, i can feel it~ i know they're not the same by any means, i just mean in terms of both having geeky loser girls/women as protagonists

the animation is pretty as hell and i love the character designs for mc and pink-chan (i haven't learnt any names yet lel). plus i love the op!

I wasn't even planning on watching this but when I found out the main characters are playing opposite genders in the game it peaked my interest and I'm so glad I watched it. The first episode was so cute and I feel like this could easily be one of my favourites this season, it seems like it's gonna be so fun to watch. Shame it's only listed as 10 episodes though :(

but looks like it will be fun ride, i always played avatar of opposite gender, I always found it strange, that mcs in anime where they are playing play the same gender,
This is how it should be.

I kinda know where this anime's going already, but I still want to watch it because I already love the characters. Especially that neet lady who kinda reminds me of Tomoko from WataMote. She's like the grown-up version of Tomoko. Is it just me? Lmao.

A girl playing a male character and somehow likes this female character in the game who I bet is being played by that megane guy. Haha.

That was a good first episode. Loved it. Can't wait for the next one. :D

It was a nice episode, I think it will be really cool story to watch.
Animation may be not the greatest but it fits online gaming story.
That's some good OP and ED.
I don't really like the idea of quitting job to play online games, but that's not important.
As a former female character MMORPG player I'm looking forward to next episodes.

Series looks FRESH, First she reminded me a bit of the MC of Welcome to NHK because of the Neet theme. But whatever, it was nice to see something new. Really enjoyed it and looking forward for more.

So, NEET starts playing MMO and finds another character to fall in love with.

This reminds me of Netoge No yome wa onna ko janai even though it's pretty different.

It did deliver a few laughs and seems to have a lot of potential.

Good opener, simple and comprehensive. It might be a bit too straightforward for its own good but I'm going to stick with it to see if it proves me wrong.

Looking forward to watch future episodes! I think this will be the show that even if it gets bad I'll still watch it... for some reason it reminds me of ReLife

Pretty decent. Then you count in the fact that this is fujoshi romance... magnificent!
This deserves better visual, especially since Lily looks like Nakagawa Kanon.

Fun start. Had few laughs at Moriko's reactions.

The guy playing Lily sure knows how to role play a female character.
Looking forward to seeing Moriko's reaction when she finds that out.

Both the OP and ED are good.

An okay start, liking the Op and Ed though, more than I thought I would. Charming and has potential, but I don't know what a laid back plot like this can really hope to accomplish with only 9 more episodes. Looks like there's a special in December which may conclude the romance ala Kashimashi, hope it has the balls to actually INCLUDE a romance since the characters are older than your average 15 year old eternal high school kids.

Speaking of age, it's nice to finally get a purple-haired waifu whose actually older than me, and going by the beginning she cleans up Very well, she's very pretty when not in N.E.E.T. mode. I will be following this, hope Funi does the simul-dub justice because this show definitely seemed up their alley before launch.

One final aside, I'm thinking they're gonna pull a Re:Life in terms of the catalyst for Moriko's shut-in status, I'm guessing a co-worker she idolized died and that's why she had the flowers in the beginning, but the company just kept on with "business-as-usual" so she got sick of the "real world".
