Absolutely loved this one, by far the one I got most excited to watch each episode this season. I'm only not giving it a 10 score because there was no proper ending, with just 10 episodes. Should I expect something form the OVA?

I was smiling the whole time. The ending was so sweet. I'll be looking for the OVA.
One of my favs of 2017 along with Mahoutsukai no Yome.

It has a natural pace and overall was very enjoyable to watch (plus Morioka-san ♥) - 9/10.

Wont fool myself into saying it is a master piece of an anime, but to me it was the hidden gem of the season, the one anime I didn't expect but it delivered more than most. I am sad to see it end, yet happy as to how it ended. With a biased rating i will give it 9/10 instead of an 8, solely because I am a sucker for nerdy romances with a conclusion.
OMG THIS. I was debating between an 8 or 9 but the fact that it actually had a conclusion and progression was beautiful. It didn't really leave us hanging instead it just made us want more. I can't say I'm completely satisfied but the pacing, personalities, and romance was fantastic. Loved it for sure ♡

Alright so they are 100% accurate. Ladies we prefer oversized hoodies!!!! It makes you look way cuter then we already think you are! Hoodies, Sports jersey's whatever, it works for some reason, and I'd say most prefer it over getting dolled up. thats separate though, lets get onto the episode.

Morioko thanking the washing machine had me crying!
I liked how she was checking out the computer as well, I feel like if that happened in real life it would be the same. Like "Oh man this is Sora's computer...COOL!" But like them cooking and cleaning together was super adorable.
Then Sakurai wiping away the tears!!!! BRO!!!! so freaking good!
I am so glad he walked her home, I was screaming "DUDE SAKURAI CHASE AFTER HER!!!!"

I liked how Moriko could use her online world to push herself forward in the real world as well. Events like that can definitely change someones views on life for the better. I expected her to slip or break her heel but my man Sakurai caught her! So good.

I am actually happy they didnt kiss. You gotta remember they only have been with each other two or maybe three times? Let's let the dating run its course. Take it slow!

btw heres a full of Moriko is the oversized clothes. You're welcome.

such a charming and adorable ending ♥︎

Back when I saw the poster of this anime and read that it involved MMO I wasn't expecting much of it (after all gaming is a common theme nowadays in anime). But it sure grabbed my attention after watching the first episode, I was eagerly waiting each week for a new episode!

though I would've loved it if we got more exposition on the true identities and stories of the other characters in the guild -like Kanbe and Lilac-

the anime was very light hearted and I'm looking forward to watch the special episode
I'd give it 9/10

Pretty sad the show is only 10 episodes. It was a really cute and enjoyable show, one of the better shows this season. This episode was really good though, the awkward moments between the two of them being the introverts they are were really cute

The episode would be good if they actually acted for their age... instead they felt more like middle-schoolers and the amount of SD was abyssmal. All the cockblocking tropes in this episode (dryer, playing boys etc.) were annoying as hell. It was cute in a way and I'm glad they ended together but it was hardly satisying end and not really good episode for the series closure.

We still don't know:
- why Morioka quitted her job in the first place, why she had the trauma?
- if she ever gets some job again
- if they'll all ever meet on MMO get together IRL
- and Lilac, Pokotarou and Himeralda's real players were hardly explored.

Therefore I simply can't rate higher because the series didn't come full circle in the end. We can hope for OVA but that's just standalone thing. Or it it?

I was actually prepared to rate even as high as 9 if the ending was perfect but sadly it wasn't, I had to lower my final vote. Still, it was very good series.

Noo it finally ended. I want more Lily and MoriMori. At least they held hands at the end so it's good to see that they are finally going out.
Koiwai really was the star of the show as well, the pillar of support imo for both of them.
Overall I wish it gets a season 2, i'd be happy to see more backstory for both of them.

Not really what I was expecting for the finale, I was expecting more to be honest but I guess can just settle with that.

Why are they so embarrassed about every single thing? It's funny lol.

I don't like the "interrupted at the perfect moment" cliche shit tho.

Overall is still pretty good tho 8/10

This was a very nice way to end the show. It was full of cute and fluffy moments as usual. I like how even though it's little, the relationship between Moriko and Sakurai is now something that pretty starting to show with each of them wanting to better themselves for the other.

Very fun watch overall.

Her talking to the clothes drier was adorable and funny. And it almost ruined Sakurai's chance.

Their MMO selves running in the opposite direction in the reflection in the last scene was a nice touch.

An "okay" ending, I won't lie and say the ending wasn't cute, it was and I'm glad Mori and Sakurai are together.... but we didn't get a kiss which loses a point. What's worse is that we could have HAD one, we could have had the development necessary for a kiss if the show didn't drag its ass with a useless attempt at love triangle drama from episodes 4-7. Koiwai turns out to be a bro which means 3 episodes of skirting around the issue, date prep, and the dates were wasted time.

While I do agree episodes 4-7 did drag a bit for those exact reasons, if you look at the characters we are dealing with (incredibly awkward neet/shut-in Morimori and modest/shy Sakurai) it actually makes more sense that the story and "love triangle drama" played out the way it did. at least, that's how I saw it :D but I agree, those episodes it drag on just a bit

Felt like the bottom kinda dropped out the last two episodes and it took a freefall. I was hoping it would focus more on the online part than real life, like it was earlier in the series.

Felt like some of the characters i wouldve liked to learn more about they didnt focus on at all (Kanbe and Lilac). Also still dont know who the fuck Nico is.

Still enjoyed it mostly though, it was something fresh and relatable so 7/10

Its really a good series...too bad though that the manga is still on-going(one of the reason why the tv series is short I guess) but there is a little chance of it being continue since the author pretty much stopped doing the manga for quite a while now

I can't believe this one fell under my radar for most of the season, I'm so happy I picked it up now !

Good comedy with good characters, that was really enjoyable overall. These two are so cute together despite their social awkwardness
Would have been a 9 if the ending was a bit less cliché, but it's still a solid 8 for me.

So sweet! And I'm glad Sakurai didn't rush it. Take it slow and build it up from there. One of the more upbeat anime of Fall 2017. A great watch that is a lot of fun. Now we wait for the special...

And somebody gif the chibi moment when Sakurai was wiping Mori's tears!

The episode was funny and pretty enjoyable sor of preparing diner as a couple but being to embarrassed to have a up holding conversations plus the over exaggerating for every small thing pus falling in sakura's love confession and at the very end how morimori almost fell and sakurai saved her plus i loved how their ingame characters were watching them from a far while they walked together just felt like a nice touch.

For those that think it's bad because its like a middle school story: Maybe it felt like that because they are both adults who have little to no experience with romantic relationships and don't know how to handle that churning feeling inside their chest? They did just meet each other irl.

Okay, so when's season 2? xD This anime was so entertaining and fun to watch; I can't remember when was the last time I was laughing and smiling so much over an anime. I think it's probably one of the best romance anime I've ever watched.

Wow, I actually teared up a bit when they started holding hands and the window reflection showed their game personas.

Really enjoyed this anime, sad that it only got the 10 episode treatment. Excited for the special. 9/10

What i absolutely adored about this show was Morioka-san's character. She's awesome, a very endearing and inspiring lady. That probably has something to do with the fact that she and i are about 90% similar. I related a lot to her character and felt genuinely attached to her. She's the kind of character, one can't help but feel a loving concern for.
I also loved how this anime portrayed how real life is for otakus/NEETs/introverts or anyone suffering from social unease.
I liked how she became more and more confident, since at first she suffer from such a low self-esteem, yet now thanks to meeting the right people in her life, she embraced herself.

It's such a feel good anime, it was fluffy and heart-warming, romantic/touching at times. It was overall quite a lovely experience. :)

I loved the last episode, esp when they held hands. I appreciated how the writers didn't push the romance, and allowed it to develop slowly but surely. It was indeed, a cute and sweet ending. I'd love to watch a second season. :3

the interactions between Sakurai and Mori never cease to make me laugh, they are just so awkward and cute XD Also, I screamed when they were coCKBLOCKED BY THAT FUCKING DRYER!! >.< THEY COULD OF AT LEAST HUGGED BUT UGGHHHH (눈_눈) *inhale* that damn dryer, i will dismantle it with my bare hands I swear

on a more serious note, Mori's development throughout this whole series was incredibly inspiring and I'm glad she's happier with herself in the real world ^-^

Koiwai-San is the best wingman ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (I wanna know what he said to make Sakurai blush XD) and the scene with their MMO reflections seeing them off at the end was a charming way to end the episode (っ>ω<ς )

my only complaint about the series is that we did not get to see a lot with the other characters both in game and in the real world T-T but despite this, the story fulfilled its main purpose with Mori's character arch and Sakurai/lily's role in such development, so lack of expansion on minor side characters doesn't really affect the quality of this anime imo.

great series; 9/10 in my book, will recommend to a friend and will most definitely watch again!!
Your stated in your comment everything i was thinking about . LOL that dryer must be destroyed! You forgot to mention that scene when he confessed but she couldn't hear him xD They form such a lovely awkward couple though :3

Well done. I went in expecting another Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta? (that was long!), but got something way exceeding expectations.

That said, the finale was quite disappointing compared to the rest of the series. I already knew they wouldn't flesh out the side characters, since the source material never delved that far before it went on indefinite hiatus, but this was just anticlimatic, and half the episode felt like it was dragging.

Nevertheless, well done!

I wish I'll see more of romance shows with characters like Sakurai and Moriko that are not annoying as fuck. Though, this show has a lot of cliche, I still enjoyed it so much because of the interesting characters (Moriko, Sakurai, and Koiwai-san). This is like a second Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun for me. Even though, there's a romance tag (suddenly there's one lmao), it's still more of a comedy for me.

Your typical romance where the MCs still haven't told they like each other. Hehe. Heck, I won't mind in this anime because I really love Sakurai x Moriko. Glad Moriko got over her depression (you can see the signs throughout the show), and now she has someone who will accept her who she is and will always be there to support her in the form of Sakurai, and of course Koiwai, too, to ship them together. Haha. I really enjoyed this anime.

Thanks for the laugh and making me lose my shit because of Sakurai x Moriko. Haha.

It was an alright final episode, so 7/10. :)

P.S. I wish we get to know more about the guild members. We saw their true identity, but this show focused more on Sakurai x Moriko which was a little bit of a downer for me.

For the record I'm aware there's an extra 11th episode that just came out but that will have to wait for subs so I'll just give final thoughts here. Well this was a pretty strong series. No further proof really needed than the fact that I literally watched all of it in under 10 hours just now and pretty much in one sitting now that I think of it. I am a bit salty we didn't at least get a kiss between this 28 and 30 year old, but oh well. I mean c'mon, we got that from kids half their age with Tsuki ga Kirei! Well, I guess it fits their characters though, and progress was made. Between those 2 shows 2017 turned out to have some surprisingly strong romance anime. Dare I say some of the best I've ever seen? And I haven't even gotten to watching The Ancient Magus Bride adaptation yet! But I digress...I really enjoyed this. I found it very easy to get emotionally invested/wrapped up in. I would certainly watch more if it came. Strong 8/10. Oh, and Koiwai turned out to be the best wingman I've seen in an anime since Suna from My Love Story!! :D

It's funny how relatable this anime and Morioka is to me, currently being a NEET myself and having played MMOs for the past couple of years. When she said she wants to better herself for Sakurai so that he wouldn't be embarrassed being with her and also so that she wouldn't be embarrassed being with him, it just hit me so much that I had to write something here. That's kind of the reason why I never wanna bother bettering myself right now, even though it's the right thing to do in this situation. I'd prefer dedicating all the effort to better myself for that special someone, and let her see me become someone who's worthy of her because she's that special to me than try and be better all by myself just so someone would maybe end up liking me.

Sad to see this go as soon as it did, was the show I was most looking forward to every week. A solid 9/10 for me.

Even if the future awaiting me is so bright that it's blinding,

The finale was great even though Moriko and Sakurai didn't confess their feelings toward each other. They're old enough to do romance but it's okay to maintain that kind of relationship. I am going to miss this show. It's very cute. It was started between the friendship of Yuki and Harth until to the next game characters, Lily and Hayashi. I would give it 8 over 10!

The perfect moment for a kiss, and the dryer had to ruin it xD
With how the flow was going, like the children interrupting Sakurai's confession, I wasn't really expecting an ending where they come together (romantically) but they're out DATING! and HOLDING hands!!!
Now all that's left is the Special Ep 11 :)
