Synopsis

After mustering up the courage to propose to a girl in an online game, naïve otaku Hideki “Rusian” Nishimura is devastated when she flat out rejects him. To make matters worse, the girl reveals that she is actually an older man in real life. With his dreams crushed and his heart broken, Rusian comes to an abrupt decision in the midst of his raging fit: he will never trust another girl in an online game again.

Years later, Rusian is now in a guild with three other players, one of whom possesses a female avatar by the name of “Ako.” Ako is deeply in love with Rusian and wants to marry him. Although he entertains the possibility that she might be a guy, Rusian accepts her proposal, claiming that her gender doesn’t matter as long as she is cute in the game. However, after a discussion between guild members that led to all of them having an offline meeting, Rusian finds out that Ako, along with the other members, are not just girls, but also his schoolmates.

Review

This feels like another one of those clichéd harems except for the fact that it’s about a couple who form a love from playing together online. It can be great if you like that kind of thing and the main girl is pretty hot but I ultimately don’t think it was worth completing. The female main character is really stupid and a lot of the drama is poor and dealt with in strange ways.

To someone unfamiliar with tropes the reveal that the three most interesting and attractive girls in the guy’s class all suddenly want to spend their time playing video games with him might feel epic but for someone like me I would rather see a whole show about a guy eventually finding that than having it sprung on him straight away. So yeah this is nothing new.

(This show is released out of order, I accidentally forgot to schedule one today because there is another post later on and I was confused, So yeah this isn’t following the alphabetical order but it’s following the order I’m scheduling. I’m currently on n/z where k was the longest one. Just look for it there are so many anime’s starting with k!)
