The parody was spot-on, not only in the amount of detail but the feelings people get while playing these games. I played FFXI, and it's pretty easy to start considering these game worlds as 'real'...Was pretty sad when Misaki barged in and it showed a view of the ACTUAL game, just some crude polygons on the screen.

From the first time awkwardness of forming a party with strangers to the thrill of defeating bosses to the addiction. This episode captured it all.

And good point about how they only show what the game really is, only from an outsider's point of view, very clever.

I love how this show is both entertaining us and shoving a big mirror in our face, as I'm sure many people can relate to what's going on.

Decent episode, but I'm getting really tired of this Misaki character.

It's been 15 episodes and we still dont know a single thing about her other than she lives in a big creepy house with her cult-aunt(?) - You have to give us SOMETHING to go on otherwise the viewer will lose interest.

Is she really surprised that Sato doesn't want her counseling? She know he just tried to jump off a cliff right? I refuse to believe she's a human anymore, i think she's an alien using him for scientific studies! lol

Oh yeah, that reminds me: Apart from the Game Trial he got from that kid, the "suicide arc" could've been completely exorcised from the series since everything's back to the status quo more or less... A decision i wished they would've made because that arc really bogged down the anime for me.

This episode was so funny, and hurray for nekomimi bishoujo Mia! Can actually watch this episode without judging my life since I've never been addicted to MMO's, I remember having the same trouble as Sato when searching for people to play

Lol he levels slowly :p but still nice concept was fun to see some RPG Game Structure in an anime! It's funny how they expressed emotions inside a game xD

Funny episode loved it, especially the ending!

Pretty nice FFXI references with the Mithra girl, the logo and everything about the MMO.
I love the FF series (XI and XIV, the two MMOs, were not that great though), so I was really happy too see this :)

Mia is obviously a guy. Can't wait to see Satou's reaction to it when he finds it out :D
Also, I've got a feeling that she is gonna screw him over somehow.

I played and still play some MMOs (among them WoW, AirRivals, Guild Wars and Tales of Pirates Online, which were the most prominent), but I never got sucked in. I always knew when to take breaks. I'm pretty sad for people who get beyond that point though, it never ends well :/

Man, this guy is a total wreck. He can't do something right xD

I guess that this Mia is in fact a fat hikimori boy that want to scam/hack him. People in online game can be really manipulative once they have trust. I know a lot about that, I had a friend in my childhood that was specialized at scamming people. I though at that time that it was cool. God do I regret all we did, we must have ruined a lot of child happiness :(
I'm not proud of that one.

I like how at the end he say proudly that he's no longer an hikimori, but in fact, he has never have been so pathetic. Expect maybe when he tried to suicide...

LOL
Whack whack... WHACK WHACK WHACK...

Satou makes me cringe sometimes....
I'm a shy person irl but when it comes to online, I can talk non-stop as if I'm an extrovert since nobody can see I'm ugly as shit. XD

Chehh.. it was just his allowance.
Too bad Misaki.. I don't see any of your counseling working.
I can understand Satou finding a means of escape in a game.. he don't know anything about RMT etc.
You can't really blame him for doing what he did. He was just back from nearly committing suicide.
Then immediately stressed with allowance issues. He has the best of luck.
Sataou really look like a dead zombie right now.. wahaha.

sadly reality is like that. damn these WoW players and their fake virtual boobs. faking nerds for half a decade now.


I heard that some Chinese player died before their computer screen, while playing WOW. Because they did not eat, drink or sleep for 3 days in a row. There is no guarantie that we won't become like them or already became one.

Since Senpai has gone will it go back to Satou x Misaki?
Nope, another love triangle.

Welp, can't say I expected this development, although in hindsight I guess it should have been obvious the moment he received the 30 day trial. Hopefully there will be some sort of progress by the end of it all and that it's not shoe-horned into the final episode or something because I've been enjoying this series a lot so far.

R.I.P Satou-kun, getting worse and worse everyday, now his allowance has gone down to half too. And I think that character Mia in the game is a fat guy in real life, that would be funny.

Really, that's what the phone call was about, his allowance?
Yeah who'd think you're a hikikomori who is playing the game non-stop right "Mia" ?

Can't wait for the day when his 30 day trials just suddenly stops, should be hilarious.

I knew this MMO would be a disaster for Satou! I was amazed at what a total noob he was at it though. It was like he'd never seen a video game before!
