Probably my fantasy pick for the season, satisfied with the way it's going so far.

I actually don't mind the slow pace. I'm not looking for another Attack on Titan. This seems lighthearted and fun. It's neat exploring his world along with him. HEH. Checkov's gun there with the mask and wig. I see a secret identity coming in his future.

Episode 2

After rescuing Zena he gets question by some soldiers so he has to max out his skills in trickery and persuasion in order to talk his way out of the situation. He is than taken to Salue City where he gets his papers and learns more about the world and that there is slavery in this world. While looking for a inn a busty 13 year old named Martha brings him to her inn and later goes out shopping with her. While looking around he happens to run into two slave girls and helps them out. That evening he has to much to eat and the next day Zena comes to take him look around town. This episode was pretty slow but we find out more about this world and the demon lord. We were also introduced to two of the girls that will be part of Sato's party in the future and one later to be introduced.

Is my eyesight going or are a number of the scenes out of focus slightly? Especially whenever the game interface is up. It's making me a bit dizzy.

Im loving the art and direction but holy poop is the plot generic. I'll stick with it for now but I was hoping for something more creative.

Intentional for sure, as you say it's showing when he's accessing the HUD.

It seems interesting enough so far, although I'm probably fairly tolerant of overpowered protagonists and so enjoyed Smartphone and recently just finished "Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar" with another overpowered protagonist.

The additional focus on the UI skills of the game is neat and having to skill up certain non-combat abilities to move the protagonist further forward is quite interesting and disturbing for it's implications eg if maximizing a skill like persuasion immediately gives you the information needed to persuade someone or win an argument, then do the character's of the world possess their own will, or could they be slave's to the mechanics/personalities that the game was originally created with?

Still it seems other characters in the world are aware of level's and basic character information from that 'Yamato stone'.

Well I don't dislike it as of Episode 2 so I'll keep watching.

Well, at least I'm not going blind. However they really do annoy me and leave me feeling dizzy as my eyes try to force them into focus. Never thought I'd drop an anime because its art choice made me physically ill.

It's a little weird that they give us a third person view of his HUD when nobody else seems to see it. I kept expecting it to be a plot point.

From some one who has read the manga, I have to say its good adaptation so far, except that they seem to be leaving out a lot of the foreshadowing that was in the manga and I think its a weird decision to do that. Any ideas why?

I am just guessing here, but at the pace it is going, it seems to me they will get to around chapter 26. If they get that far, quite a few things will probably be cut out to make it to that point.

What a pleasant surprise, to see that Wake Up, Girls! is performing the ED of this.Not only that, but the OP is performed by Run Girls, Run!. Nice to see that they got something like this. Good job.

Hey there mods, please could you translate the HUD and UI in other languages such as Spanish please, I don't bother to watch anime with English subs, however, if I have the option to watch it in my mother tongue is even better.

There is a lot of information missing when you watch this anime in other language, please, do something about it.

Thanks.

Meh didn't really pick up from ep 1. It was funny after meeting the daughter and saying he'd hook up with her, he says he'd "hit that" about the mom too if she was 40lbs lighter LOL. What I don't get is if he thinks he's dreaming and knows he has the power/skills to hook up with the characters why he isn't trying out that feature?

I think its to continually reinforce the separation between him and the 'world', like no matter how immersive it all is, there's still this barrier.

From an aesthetic point, it also fits with all the other little ticks like the skill checks, notifications etc.
