It was a nice manga.
Gave it an 8/10 overall.

I was laughing at a bunch of it along the way, but then the story actually became engaging, and I felt for the characters. It's a real shame it just got cancelled like that. I would have liked to see a more constructed end to the story. It was also a real bummer that he ended up with nothing, but remembering Takuro's misdeeds, and how he abandoned reality by walking away from Maria, he got exactly what he deserved. But it still feels bad, and I'm in a contemplative mood now. :|
Was the Fuhrer the monkey and he just used the image of his keeper ?
How was he able to speak ? Why does everyone in his army used his image too ?
Yes, the chimp used the computer in his cage to access the internet and used his keeper's image, perhaps because he was the human he saw most often. He presumably "spoke" in the game world by using some sort of software.
His army was made up of losers that didn't like their own identities so they were happy to subsume theirs to his. This kind of thing happens in reality, so it's a pretty clever touch by this story.
Yeah, I really liked that part even though I didn't get it immediately. The serious tone of that moment and the meaning behind the threat really contrasts with the ridiculous things that happen elsewhere in the series.
I also like how Ehara's face was a reference to the Guy Fawkes mask, and together they were all "Anonymous". Pretty sure I saw one of the Eharas do a trollface at one point as well.

Takuro doesn't have the "Best Ending", but he certainly has one that's better than what could have happened -- note what happened to his friend in the end. Takuro's living independently in the real world and has learned a new skill, even if it's just cooking. I certainly doubt he'd be happy with his job at the paper plant. Sure, it's a bit of a shame that he's not with Maria or Tsukiko, but with Tsukiko, we know Takuro wouldn't have a "real" life (and might not be able to live on his own after his parents died), and Maria's not exactly a "Good Ending" either (she's slipped back into smoking). It's entirely possible that, staying with Maria, Takuro would be a very unhappy man. The ending merely reinforces that the Real World is the only choice there really is, but it's still not going to be as "good" as the virtual one.
Loved the monkey ending, btw. Didn't predict that one at all!
