Yes finally! I'm so god damn happy about this Lol. But at the same time it took a bit long, so with 2 episodes left + 1 OVA this makes me feel skeptical how it'll work of course :S

But this show is still great for what its worth tho.

UHHHHH!! What a cute episode!! Sakurai and Morioka are lovely! I love how nervous they got and how they fantasized about each other's identities!

"It's been a while, Yuki-san" AHHHHH!!! SO DAMN CUTEEEEE!!!

He didn't just say it once, but twice! "I'm Lily"
Could be this relationship any more cuter??? I mean, this episode left me with a huge smile. I loved how their faces were full of joy.

PD: Morioka rolling on her bed. Lovely level over 9000!

This series is suprisingly good - too bad that only 2 episodes remain!

MoriMori technically being the MC woulda made me think she would be the one to be in Sakurai shoes here (she did her's so casually)...either way, oh boy the cliffhanger

WAY too many concidences.....but I don't care I love the anime because of that, it's so much finding all the insane ways everyones connected. Who would have guessed this would be like my 3rd favorite anime or so this season. And 3rd isn't a slight, it's just so many good/decent anime this season heh.

10/10 Episode.

Also: MoriMori fell in love with Harth (SG) Lily (FlM) and Sakurai (IRL)...
and the three happened to be the same person.

I thought Sakurai's confession about being Lily would drag out and I am so glad it didn't. I feel like I shouldn't enjoy this show so much but I am really looking forward to it every week.

This episode was pure gold and finally Sakura-chan "confessed" that he was Lily all along. That phone conversation was too cute and adorable at the same time, I think the battery dying out from Sakurai's phone made it even better to get him tell the truth IRL to Moriko. Morimori-chan's expressions during the phone call were just peak Morimori-chan.

Sakura-chan's past was slightly similar to myself in the sense that we as "whites" suffered some kind of bullying in our childhoods.

Now I just can't wait to next week's episode.

Got to see how Sakurai and Moriko spent their time in the previous MMO they met each other. I'm glad he finally told her who he really is. Two episodes left. I'm curious how they will develop further on.

Omg I love this anime so much ;_;

When I was about 13-14 years old I fell in love with a guy in an MMO game. We had a mutual friend in real life but never met each other outside the internet. I guess the feeling was kinda mutual because we were going to get married in the game (lol) and all, but then it got closed down and obviously we had to stop playing it. We still kept in touch through social media and other games but then in the August 2013 he died in an accident. It was a really difficult thing for the 15 years old me to get through (and it still affects me a lot) and as time passed I started to feel kind of embarrassed that I had developed a crush on a guy I had never met in real life.

This anime with its story has surprisingly made me feel a lot better because now that there's an actual show where the characters have dealt with this kind of problem it feels more real and normal. And the way they describe the happiness when someone you like logs in to the game and you get to see them again and how you get embarrassed about the things you talk about and everything... I never met anyone who had experienced such feelings so it was really hard to get any real support.

Sorry, I don't even know how to put this into words so that people can understand it but I had to let this out somehow!! :'D Can't wait for the next episode!

Can't believe he finally said it, i was so relieved xD Now can't wait for the next episode to see her reaction because like the 3 people that she met and really liked a lot are the same person, i really hope they end up together.
This episode was so good! 10/10

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

morioka are 30-31 while sakurai are 28-29. they only 2 years apart

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe they're doing me in like this!!! I thought it was bs that his phone died right when he was going to tell her but at least they still had him confess in the same episode. Now I have to wait another week to see what's going to happen. qjkriekopwqjmfkosdp;lhnjfoupahfiuerw I can't handle it!

Waaah! And it's out! :) But did they have to make it into cliffhanger, really? The wait will be long now!

Guess the next episode would be aftermath of this revelation.. Calling it now but that shower scene from the preview is probably Mori-chan in Sakurai's home ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

And the last episode would be dedicated to their RL game meeting, can't wait to see them all players together IRL.

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.

He is a half-British

Holy shit man. I thought they were going to go with the phone cockblock move but no, Sakurai manned up went and told her in person, in the same fucking episode. That's a first.

Really enjoy when they two are just simply talking to each other too, strangely amusing.

Aaaaaahhh! He finally said it! I love it so much! This anime is like a big dream.. And it's so relatable.

I was like "for sure we won't get to see a reveal until the last episode now that his phone died" but the show came back and proved me wrong. I love how this series keep going against a lot of the typical anime clichés.

Oh my god, I was so excited when Sakurai was about to tell Moriko about Lily over the phone. I literally screamed at my monitor when it showed his dead phone. Thank god they didn't leave us hanging for long, but man I felt like pulling my hair out during that last scene, internally screaming for him to spit it out already. I wasn't really sure about this show after episode one, but it blew back my expectations.

gdi. When his phone's battery died, I went "damn it" then punching my right palm with my left hand, then kept on saying on my head "please sakurai, tell her now" till the end of the episode. XD

Story about their past playing NanterSG is so sweet. Well aside from that, there sure have to be some "problem" whatever it is when it comes to confessing about your MMO character. Not just because there still some episodes left, but just because it's the "Law". :P
In the end the confession finally successfully said though.

I thought it was going to be a recap at first lol.
I feel like the pacing is way too different compared to before. Just feels off. Its pretty cool though and they finally did the reveal, and overly late like most anime. She was so moe over the phone lol.
That ending, I like it but at the same time give me 'not such a good' vibe. I don't like it when I get that feeling, but we will see.

French, but whatever. Despite my ranting last episode, although I will still be mad and point out if this show doesn't have "Recovery" by the end besides a romance.... but that said, I commend this episode for not beating around the bush and getting shit done.

Mori FINALLY learns the truth, Sakurai finds his balls, and we had no romance triangle horseshit. Definitely better than last week, went a long way to fixing half of what I was complaining about last week.

Very good and emotional episode, the fact that Morioka and Sakai know each other from another game is a nice extra.

Almost raged when the phone went out:@

But to our and their luck, the truth is finally out, next week can't come soon enough.

OH MY GOD THIS IS A ROMANCE ANIME WHY IS IT HYPING ME SO MUCH I CAN'T EVEN... such a satisfying romance tbh, feels way better than the constant misunderstandings in gamers! even tho i did like that show. My only gripe with netjuu atm is the weird way in-game actions are portrayed, but other than that this show is amazing.

Idk why, but that voice during the review sounds like Hange/Hanji from SnK a lot. Haha.

Sakurai joined as a guy in the MMO game Koiwai and Moriko playing, too, and he decided to use his old username "HARTH", and it reminded Moriko of that character she used to talk with a lot in an old MMO game.

I thought it'll take long before Moriko will know that Sakurai is Lily and Harth. Finally, Sakurai told her himself that he's Harth and Lily. Ugh this episode is so satisfying.

I love that scene where they're both talking to each other on the phone. Moriko lowkey fangirling, though. Hihi.

That cliffhanger, though. Damnit.

2 episodes left? Nooooooo.
