THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Ha, I still can't take Koiwai seriously with his character in the RPG world.

Looks like we more storytelling on Sakurai this episode. The story about him back in the days when he used to play a social game was interesting to note. 2 more episodes left...

This almost feels like a journey. Moriko has developed quite a bit both as a player and person up to this point.

Didn't expect this anime to get this good, honestly. It looked like a pile of garbage from the synopsis, I'm glad I gave it a shot anyways.

So he finds out that she is Hayashi and she finds out that he is that brown haired kiddo from previous game, Jesus :D

But in the end he finally told her the truth YES!!!


Only two episodes left, i'm really curious how they "conclude" this.

I'm so glad that Sakurai told Morioka about him being Lily! Just hoping that shit won't go down in the nearest two epsiodes.

5/5- A little more backstory on Sakurai and THE DOTS ARE FINALLY CONNECTED for both Morioka and Sakurai!

Where they go from here is a must watch for me. I really can't wait for the next episode. 2 more episodes left kinda makes my heart ache a little but I'm fine because now they can move on from this part. Now they are entering a new page of their little story and I'm so interested to see what comes of it...though I'm fairly certain I know where how it's gonna end.

Anyways, Morioka is too precious and had a lot of reactions this episode. That phone call was really cute to watch as well. Thank fucking god Sakurai ended up telling Morioka that he's Lily anyways after his phone died. I was afraid we were going to wait another episode.

Very nice backstory and they still had time to make the big reveal to each other. So one year has passed since that fateful day at the convenience store where both wanted that piece of chicken xD

Morioka has really done well as a person, like she seems more confident around people imo. I really hope there's at least some romance between them two.

This episode was cute, the characters made so many funny expressions.
It's nice to know the truth is out but i wonder how it will effect the characters.
For now everything seemed to be going well tho.

Yes, yes!, YES!

I´m glad they don´t reserve the reveal for the last episode or something like that. I gotta say, some people may have valid reasons to chose not to watch seasonal anime cause they prefer watching all at once or so, but it´s in cases like this when I think the experience is better if you have had to wait 2 months instead of 4 hours for moments like these

So I guess the 2 episodes left are gonna be about her internal conflict with her MMO world and her real word mixing like this, and (hopefully) a happy resolution at the end.
Let´s see how this show will conclude

I thought they would drag things for more episodes. Now we have the last two episodes to enjoy their development now that things are out in the open.

Just a fantastic episode all around, the music especially was great.

Sakurai's flashback was something. They handled the topic of remembering the other partner in the past MMO very well. I was so tense during Sakurai suffering and wanting to believe and Morioka figuring it all out.

The phone call was just amazing, you could see it in their faces how much they want to see each other and how they are reminiscing.

Almost punched something when his battery died but he said it again! I wonder how she will react. I'm happy for those two.

Fucking FINALLY. So the ninth episode we'll set up some drama about her NEET issues and maybe quitting the game, and in the tenth we can resolve it and can have some closure. YES. DON'T RUIN THIS YOU'RE THE ANIME OF THE YEAR IF YOU SEAL THE DEAL. KISS, GODDAMNIT.

Edit: don't @ me. I don't want spoilers.

Definitely my favorite episode of this show by far! I really wish it was more than 2 more episodes. As an MMO player myself this show is just amazing and I really enjoy it a lot. I'm so glad Sakurai finally told her that he's Lily.

My mouth was open a lot of the episode, I was surprised by everything going on. When Sakurai started talking about Moriokas new character I sat there saying "there's NO FXCKING WAY" but then it was and I yelled. When the episode ended right after the reveal I yelled again; "YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO ME". I need the next episode already.

I don't usually get this excited about animes. So far, this anime as a whole, is probably 8-9/10 for me. Very enjoyable.

Ok, so Mori Mori s 39 so I guess sakurai is probably in his early 20's.

Wow, Sakurai and Morioka got a lot closer this episode and the producers sure know when to end the episode. Right when Sakurai told her that he was actually Lily.... I am so anxious about the next episode already

I don't know about you guys, but I think this is the show I most enjoyed this season. It makes me smile from begging to end. And this episode was definitely the one that made me smile most. It's just amazing to see those characters interactions

I also at the end of this episode shouted "YESSSS" along with my hand raised, fist clenched.

2 episodes left is painful to wait.

Nice episode.. the pacing of the show is done just right..

The phone call and their expressions were cute. :)

Am i the only one who thinks Sakurai's cyan shirt really suits him? Maybe coz it matches with his eyes..

I'm so fucking glad Sakurai revealed at the end he was Lily (after telling her he was the friend she had in the previous online game she played). When the thing of the battery happened I thought they were to drag out things and I felt really frustrated, but, no, he actually told Moriko the truth!
I'm very excited for next episode.

Sakurai's backstory was sad, though, if I read right, he said that one of the reasons why he suffered bullying when he was a child was due his hair color, implying is natural. Considering he is blond, I wonder if the show is implying he is a foreigner adopted by Japanese people.

Sakurai! My Man!

Gosh, this episode felt bittersweet, but mostly sweet! I can't wait to see what her reaction to him being Lily.
I really enjoyed seeing Mori show her real self to him when she discovered that Harth was Sakurai. =) Totally cute. They would make such a cute couple.

This is the first anime in a while where I couldn't wait for the next episode to come out next week. x-x

They both did good this episode. Sakurai said it but also Morioka picked up the phone and called him to ask about their old MMO, it's a lot of progress for her.

Anime writers take note, this is how you do bad coincidences.
1. That his phone dies isn't usual, but a possibility with recent phone batteries.
2. You don't draw this missunderstanding forever, but jump of the train in exactly the right moment to clear things up.

That ending was a serious bombshell cliffhanger!

I loved this episode! With only two more to go, I wonder how everything will wrap up.

Sakurai's battery dying was annoying, but the ending... wow, I can't wait until next week.

So good. Just wanna gobble up this show. Yum yum.

I was so frustrated when his phone died, but the writers pulled through by not dragging it on. They gave him the balls to follow through and say it again in the same episode. I'm still frustrated that this series blue balled me for 8 episodes.
