Spoiler source should, at a minimum, contain the relevant source of the spoiler e. Character: well, we still have the usual gang whether in the game or in the real world. Certainly more than I do, anyway. Naturally, Sakurai reconsiders simply staying behind and walks Morioka home. The character dynamics are the same as always, but it's just like revisiting an old friend and finding that they haven't changed. Many of us undoubtedly concerned about.
The manga actually covers details about it, such as players getting stat boosts based on their job history. Lily is briefly taken aback by the, well, accusation of ulterior motives, but cannot entirely plead innocence. Online friendships can simultaneously be safer and closer than some real life relationships. But ultimately he shows he cares about both of them and is determined to help their relationship work. She checks out a new one, Fruits de Mer, which she choses to play with a male avatar, Hayashi. In other words, pretty boyfriend-girlfriend kinda stuff! Lily wholeheartedly admits that she's the type who will shell out money for random loot boxes in a game until she gets the items she wants. Koiwai is pretty transparent about being a for Sakurai and Moriko, and Moriko seems to like both guys doesn't try to pursue either of them because she thinks they're too good for a failure like herself.
Additionally, Sakurai deliberately tries to play Lily as a cheerful person which means often bottling up anything troubling. In fact, Kanbe seems to know a lot about the various members of his guild, like that Himeralda and Pokotaro are married in real life, and that Lily's player is a guy, but keeps all that knowledge to himself. Looking for what show an image came from? So, should you watch it? It was only one episode length but It left me smiling from ear to ear throughout the entire episode with its cute comedy between Morioka and Sakurai. At 32 years old he's the eldest cast member with a confirmed age, and he looks out for both Sakurai and Moriko. Moriko agrees, and jumps offline to text Sakurai. The question is, did Morioka really get the day mixed up, or did Koiwai arrange it so that only the two of them would meet? Keep in mind they have restrictions in place to avoid spam.
But he's far more interested in setting her up with Sakurai who is his current co-worker and who he's also quite fond of. There is a moment where the two of them end up in a comedic feedback loop of endlessly apologizing to one another. Which is not saying everyone does, but both Moriko and Sakurai Yuta, the player that plays Lily, leans heavily into making an online personality for themselves. The choice eventually falls on Fruits de Mer, and it's there Moriko will make new friends and experience her online life to the fullest. Untagged or improperly tagged spoilers are not allowed.
Eventually, he ends up playing Fruits de Mer too, and his player character is a sight to behold, to put it mildly, only mirrored by how little he cares about what it looks like. When Hayashi asks Lily what to wear, he gives the best answer he can, only to be pressed further by Kanbe, backing Morioka up. You don't often get to see how people use games to either deal with problems or get away from them for a while instead of working as wish-fulfillment, and certainly not ones where it's not really the game itself that's important. The episode is divided into two parts. Because while Hayashi sort of comes across as the prototype dreamboats for shoujo-ish shows, at least at first, Lily is more like the kind of ribbon-bombarded pink cutesy type you find in female harems that are too embarrassed to be heavily sexual, and her behavior really underlines that image too. Before he arrives, Moriko does a comprehensive clean of her apartment, also trying and failing not to make her out-in-the-open bed look welcoming. Sakurai notices and shows her he left her a pair of slippers by the entrance to his place just like the ones he's wearing, causing Moriko to notice them for the first time, only to once again neglect them when he heads for the dryer and she barrels ahead of him to avoid letting him see her underwear, and then she finally puts the slippers on.
I'm glad the more I think about, the more it makes sense though. Things change, however, when Moriko learns that Sakurai is actually the irl identity of a friend she made in another mmo years ago. She was okay when she wasn't addicted to gaming, but when she got engrossed in it, she fell to the level of a and became very unkempt and unraveled from reality, and has to be progressively rehabilitated in a slow manner. When the guild is talking about doing gacha stuff and free to play vs whales, its so on point and accurate to how people normally talk about it. Who is the somewhat rotund dude? Hayashi manages to score both rare and common loot, but lucky Lily takes the cake by scoring the whole set. Lily is bubbly, outgoing, and not remotely nervous or self-conscious, almost like a completely different character.
Still, seeing that sort of thing in practice still isn't what I'd call enjoyable. We don't fully learn why, but are served some clues as to how she felt about it, partially because of a rather unsettling dream she had after taking that elbow to the forehead. But we don't rule out the decision on renewal at all. Being an animated show does also sort of shoot itself in the foot by having people obsess about their looks as much as they do -- that is to say, Moriko does. It's actually kind of cute, because it really puts into perspective how people behave online, and how much thought people put into their online behavior based on what they look like online. After jotting down a list of hilariously Chuuni-ish names, like Lightning of the Black Darkness, Darkness Knight, Cross of Darkness and worst of all: Yuki -- I mean. They meet in a tree and arrange a Christmas Eve date.
Will she be mad at him, or, more likely, blame herself for not having figured it out, even though she was aware of the similarities? Neither of them are portrayed in negative light because of this. After a rough beginning, a girl named Lily eventually comes to her aid and the two quickly hit it off, with Moriko joining soon her in a guild and making more friends in the process. Overall 8 Story 7 Animation 8 Sound 9 Character 9 Enjoyment 8 Net-juu Susume was one of the greatest anime this season, and here it is, the much awaited special of it. But it comes pretty damn close! Now, here's the thing: fair 6, Art: Cu'z we now see some Morika fanservice thought briefly only, like her in her topless for with only her panty, don't expect any frontal boobies and her in a bikini armor, but only in a dream sequence, thought it would have been better if she would have wore it a little bit longer. While there's always some indecisiveness and angst, it's never the sole focus of the show nor is it treated in such a manner that it hampers the flow of the comedy and the sweeter moments.
Honestly speaking it wasn't so good as I expected it to be, but it wasn't bad either. Moriko's goofy overreactions when she's playing the game are in stark contrast to her usual shyness, which is because she doesn't have to worry about people noticing her silly crying or excited yelling. You get more of the cute romance of the couple and some pretty doki doki going shojo moments in the first half. His keyboard is pink, his game avatar Lily has pink hair, and he also owns more than one pink article of clothing. The episode is divided into two parts. Sure enough, all Hayashi ends up getting out of the event is a ton of common healing potions.
