I believed that this anime is going to be way better than the manga since I've seen so many changes in the plot from the beginning... But then they screwed up everything and it has finished as it did.
The point of that why the rating of this anime is going down more and more is just the fact that Seo is an awesome artist, but terrible story writer. But to the point!
You can scroll down to the overall point just to get general info.
The story itself wasn't terrible from the beginning - somehow it drew the attention of many people, right? And
it wasn't different in my case. I really loved first episodes, they are really good I have to say - the way they introduce the whole plot isn't bad. I have to say those first episodes are really enjoyable - they aren't that rushed as the next are. And that's the point.
The story isn't bad itself at all, but the way they show it is. There are many gaps in the story and things which are not explained. The biggest pain in the ass of this plot is the fact that they changed few things according to manga. But this intervention isn't bad itself - why you may ask? That's pretty easy to explain - some of the manga readers aren't happy with the way how manga goes, same with anime fans. I'm not big Fuuka fan, but that's truly cool to see her alive after all :) This intervention is really good in my opinion, but the way what they did after that is in so bad taste. If you change the story do it till the end, not like this you did... I mean - if you change the story it's cool, do it - it's your business but do it with the head.
Let the new story flow not bury it with the old one. It's really bad taste in my opinion. And the way the story is rushed is even worse. They made like 3 episodes with Koyuki (my fav - but it's subjective so it's not important in rating) and they lost some precious time (1h) to make up the story the way it wouldn't be that rushed. *eghem* -the f***ed up-
If the story had been provided with Koyuki or Fuuka path for the whole time it would be a cool plot, well-made story. But it's not...
Final result: 3/10
The art is one of the best sides of this show. I mean it's really good - as colorful as the Samsung system overlay xD But that's good, art and the animation quality stands on really high level what is really cool for people like me who enjoys good views (I don't mean fanservice by this) The characters are well drawn, the facial expression is really well made. I really love zooms on Fuuka or Koyuki - they are really good. You can feel it like they are close to ya, and that's cool. I really enjoyed this part of the show. But it's like a game - if only graphics is good, but story or gameplay sucks you can't rate the game well. Sorry.
Final result: 8/10
Of course, this whole anime is about the music so if it had bad one nobody would even give it a try. Maybe not that strict tho xD But you know what I mean. For me, music has carried this anime to the end.
If not music I would be so bored after rejecting Koyuki - I was even thinking about dropping this anime but I had to finish it.
*END OF SPOILER*
So the music is on the really high level here, Saori Hayami and the others did a really good job here and there <3 That's a big plus for this show. It's still not the top quality but still really high scored stuff. The voice actors are really well selected to their characters. I really like it.
Final result: 8/10
OMG - another pain in the ass. I could rate every single character different way because some of them are truly awesome created, some of them are really bad because of the role they have to play or just because of the personality. The thing which annoys me really badly is the fact that main protagonist is kinda stupid. I mean for real. In my opinion, main characters of this anime are the worst part of it. Except for Koyuki which is kind of main of side characters. I believe that the whole plot would be even better in general if she had been the main character, but that's just guesses. The way the characters act is so forced that it looks like a cheap act. I think that side main characters were the best here, like Makoto or Nachi or Sara. They did a good job here and let the story flow a bit.
Final result: 5
As I said before, first episodes are really good and they let you have fun while you watch them and that's really cool. The art is really nice for our eyes and music is really magnificent in few moments, like ending of the 6th episode - Yukihanabi has just destroyed me <3 I can say that in general only Koyuki scenes could provide me the feelings of watching something good. They weren't too candy like but they let me feel something inside. they had some deeper meaning not like the other shit here. Fan service wasn't needed here tbh but if they already did it, why not. It's not that bad but really... It wasn't needed in some scenes.
Final result: 6
Thanks to Koyuki-chan that I could make some gifs and to Fuuka that she let me make whole 2 gifs :/ .... Better than nothing xD
This anime isn't for people who knows something about relations and how the world works. If you wanna give this anime a try, do it - 10eps go ahead, no more xD The plot is simple enough that you know the ending after 3rd episode already, I don't like stuff of this kind - I need some stuff like Clannad when you watch the ending and you don't know what the heck is going on and you write to Key support to ask what was that.
The changes they did comparing to manga could make this anime way better. It's better than the manga in my opinion (just a bit like 0.1 points but it's better) but it could be even better and better. But it's not. What a pity :c
The whole anime can be compared to a game - which has the wonderful soundtrack which moves your heart, with wonderful realistic like graphics with decent optimization, but the gameplay is so bad and actually the plot is so bad that you don't wanna play it anymore. That's how I feel about this anime.
The final score: *dum dum dum* - 6/10
I think that's pretty honest rate. I would love to rate it subjectively but I can... xD
I can recommend first 8 eps - it's truly quality stuff guys - then drop :)

My personal recommendation at the end ;)
"Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?" - pretty interesting title, which represented by truly cute girl Ako.
For sure, I'm not watching currently airing animes, because I'm of this type who prefer to watch something without breaks, without waiting, etc.:
But I was sick and need to watch something what will calm me down after all exams I had last week. I've chosen "Netoge".
I was enjoying it from the first episode till last I can see at the moment. The first thing which caught my attention was plot, story and idea. Of course I'm talking about "this"
plot ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) - just kidding, or maybe not xD. Seriously - the idea and plot caucht me upand I have to say that it's pretty nice. Playing games, MMO genre, girl with a problem and the guy who has to help her. Ok. Sounds pretty normal, I know. But there is so many anime that it's truly hard to achive something truly new and innovative. The most important thing is how to show something what already was showed but different way. And that's what I like. The idea is pretty simple and everyone know what's going on, but it still keeps us wathcing.
For sure. I'm men, so after exams when I wanted to chill out I was looking for something little ecchi with nice "plot". Sure, but I'm not shallow person. Boobs etc.: are just something for us, but that what I love in some anime is just that what I can think about, some reflections, motives, morals, feels, especially feels.
I'm truly emotional man.
...So what I like about this anime?
That's pretty simple. I wanna say that nearly everything but nothing the most, if I can say so. There is nothing what I can say that I just dislike.
Well, It would be very hard to say something about the story without spoilers, but I won't say anything so keep reading ;)
The anime show us the story of a girl Ako who can't separate online world from real life, and she felt in love with Nishimura, who she got to know in game, but for real they are people who could know each other in real life, beacuse they are studying in the same school. The other players from the guild thought about meeting in real life, and that's how the whole story has begun. What I like about the stroy, maybe it's not innovative but it's truly catchy. I really like it. Maybe that's because of charater creation someway, but I don't think so at all. The story is really rough what keep me close to it. I was pretty focused when I was watching it what is weird for me, because I mainly focus while I'm watching some slice of life anime genre, romance or drama, but not commedy with ecchi and romance elements. I was really happy after wacthing fifth episode, beacuse I began to believe that anime has the good romance potential. I was hoping it all the time, but after this episode I was truly sure of it. Ant that's what I love <3 Ecchi mixed with romance is something perfect for chilling.
Rating of art depends on our taste, style, like, but that's review is share of my opinions right? So in my opinion the art and animation style stand on truly good level. Maybe it's not masterpiece for me, but really.. I'm truly enjoying watching it, and my eyes don't say - "hey, you, stop watching this, it hurts.". I truly feel good about the art in this anime. It's jsut beautiful. Tones of pastel colors, nice art style, smooth animation, beautiful created characters and world, what can I say more? Let your eyes see it, you won't be disappointed ;)
I'm music lover, so that's really hurtful for me give such a low rate, but what can I say, it doesn't depend on my, right? I can just rate that what I have hear. Unfortunately I haven't hear anything special. Of course music isn't bad but it's also not something with "wow" or "cool" effect. I think that the music is bad side of this anime. I also think that I could rate this anime 9/10 if the music would be better. In my opinion if there would be some OST which could make feeling stronger and could expose specific scenes this anime would really got 9/10 for me. I can't say anytihing more about music here, beacuse I have no words for something truly neutral.
So I can say, it's not good but not bad too.
Yeah, I have to say that I truly enjoy character creation here. It's simply really good in my opinion. I'm not only talking about the desing. Of course it's really, really important, but it also depends on art style, right? I was thinking mostly about the nature of characters. Ako is charming, cute girl, which plays all the time, has no friends before she met Nishimura and the rest of the guild. She can't separate the real world from the online one, or even her in-game husband is treated like a true husband in real life. That makes her truly funny character but cute and charming at the same time. Her reactions and facial expressions are really sweet and funny in my opinion. She is probably my fav character of this anime and one of fav female characters from anime. We will se how will she change to the end of the series.
Nishimura, young student of the same school as Ako is one of main characters, which I want to compliment. Men who was rejected online, and he promised himself to never ever confess love online, be Ako was exception <3 He seems to be really good men, looking after her women. I hope he will achive his target and he will be "true", real life, conscious couple created with Ako. There are also few other girls what looks like a harem anime, but it's not at all. First thing what was related to true harem I saw in 7th epsiode.
As I said eery single time in every point, I really enjoyed watching this anime. It's truly good in my opinion. I'm guy, so to be honest, cute girls, romance, ecchi, big boobs etc.: are something what I love, so I can not say that I'm just not enjoying it.
Final score: 7/10
I wanted to give it 8, but I could not.
Who, I can recommend it?
Every person, who would like to laugh for a while, who want to calm down, see some wonderful art or jsut cute girls with big boobs <3 But not only, because the plot of this show is also really good in my opinion, so if you are looking for some romance anime I want to say that I keep one's fingers crossed for this anime and the romance plot here. I hope it will be main theme at the end <3 Unfortunately I didn't see what I wanted.
Like boobs, cute girls, nice plot, some romance, interesting ideas? Check this anime :)
