Poor satou, i can understand using games to escape emotions and life in general - can understand him being upset enough to throw a chair at someone because you've just had your safety that you've built trust around broken by them. Games can become a point where because you can control that world, it's safer to you to be in and to have interactions in the virtual world instead of the real world, sad thing is that's where addictions can get a heck of alot worse too.

Also I feel sorry for misaki though, she's trying her best

I wonder...would Satou gone back to playing the game if Kobayashi hadn't called?

Such games are like being addicted to a class A drug. I've never gone anywhere near an MMO, especially after one of my friends from home used to play WoW for around 8 hours a day, sometimes even 12 hours in one go, without even getting up or having a pee or anything. Now that is scary.

Poor Misaki, the lengths she goes to, and she always looks so cute too.

I had a feeling Mia would be a man IRL, but I didn't predict it'd be his neighbour haha.

As i mentioned before, i'm glad that i can't addicted to these games for long lol
Mhh as Mia said, she's nearby it could only be yamazaki...how would mia know where he live? misaki diddn't know what satou is doing all the time and senpai will wed soon or so..xp
sooo it must have been yamazaki, and now i got this look when satou told him about the mmorpg and the rmt...i think there was the idea for creating mia and such..

an i still don't get misaki's behavior but i feel kinda sorry for her ^^"

Agreed. So glad I don't play those kinds of games.

I have say, I just got my wisdome teeth removed and I've been watching this show on vicodin. It's much funnier and I care abou the animation less and less. Only way to watch it *thumbs up*

The BEST episode yet on this series. I liked the way that Yamazaki made Satou realize the path that he was taking and that people can lie in those games.

The message was loud and clear.

Nice to see Misaki go to whatever lengths to save Satou. And you really need a high class operation to succeed in Real Money Trading.

Nice. Yamazaki another epic entrance. XD Sato just got really owned there. Games mean nothing if you don't play with people you know. Then you can get shocked if you don't know them. XD ^w^

Satou attacking Yamazaki with a chair reminded me of this guy:
Piotrek's mother was affraid and she turned his computer off. She killed his game charcter so Piotrek get really angry. He started hit her with wooden chair.

And for anyone interested in RMT:
Dominik B. said: Young person visited us every day for 2 years. He sit in front of computer 10h+ and finally he sold his character for 2700 PLN.

(2700PLN = €650 = $950 at today's exchange rate)

Tibia was once a very popular topic in Polish media, but I think it became less popular recently. I'm proud to say I quitted playing it after whole 20 minutes, and never tried anything like that again.

Oh, Yamazaki, you lovable, treacherous devil, you. The worst part is I've done almost-as-stupid things online. (Not gold farming, but attempts at online relationships.)

Aside from that, though, the writing seems to be starting to weaken a bit. Misaki's "logic" is ridiculous even for her, and the introduction of a new character at this point - one who's also unconditionally interested in Sato, no less - seems abrupt and unnecessary. In fact, this Megumi seems all too much like a replacement for Hitomi now that her subplot has been resolved. I really want to love this show, but it just seems to be plodding along, trying to pad out its length by adding more random crap and avoiding any sort of serious, conclusive plot points - not to mention the wildly inconsistent animation quality. I'm really getting the feeling that this would have been better off at 12 or 13 episodes.

I didn't expect Yamazaki at all, but it was awesome! I can't believe he would go so far just to prove a point...

Fat Satou was gross though...

i thought Satou was going to meet the person that gave him the trial some time in the game.. guess I was wrong xD

Did not expect the real character of Mia..but i did think it was a man.

can't wait to watch next ep and see how the meeting with the Class Prez will be like lol

When he was writing "I'm coming" and all that I thought I will die in front of a computer, amazing suspense ^^ But I feel sorry for Satou, kind of depressing.
Great series.

I really didn't like the way they set this out. It gives people the impression that they WILL end up like Satou did if they play it, which is extremely incorrect. As long as you take it in moderation, it can be extremely fun and still give you your personal life. The styling that this did of online gaming annoyed me.

The parody itself though wasn't bad.

This show is like one big preachment... in a good way.

@the poster upside me: No it is not. Satou was the only one of all the people in the MMO, who ended up like this. The other always said they had to go offline because of jobs, friends, etc.

That wasn't my point. I was talking about on THIS forum we're posting on. People were saying how they will never play MMO's because they end up like Satou, and that complete BS. It seems NHK showed it in the light of someone who is a complete addict, who plays it non-stop and tries to get sympathy from the audience for it. It seemed to have worked because people now think that MMOs are going to turn you into him, when in reality, that just ins't true.

As for the character that were going to work, they were only minor character, extra's per say. The audience isn't meant to care/notice that they are sensible players. That's why I made the point in the first place.

I totally called Mia being a man.

The closest I got to video game binging like this was when I beat Persona 4 in less than two weeks last summer. Of course, I have an excuse: Johnny Yong Bosch.

There are no girls on the interwebs. Satou just learnt that the hard way :P

MMOs are the devil by the way. Too addictive if you get into it.

Lol, glad that I don't play games like WoW anymore after watching this episode xD.

Damn if there was a girl that would cosplay just to get me out of my room, I would instantly start dating that girl O.o. Jealous of Satou xD.

I hope Satou won't become even more of an otaku, because he is just getting worse and worse.
