Episode 2: And I Thought Couldn't Play Net Games at School

HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG! I love it when Ako gets all jealous and runs into Rusian's body and just snuggles into him, it's so freaking adorable, can I have an Ako? I don't care if she's as crazy as her.

But Ako does have a few screws loose in her head thinking that blending the world of Net Games and Reality together. That ED song and animation was pretty nice too and reflects how Ako feels.

Why couldn't my student council president be this cool? Get state of the art PCs and start a gaming club just to play games. That would be the best school life ever. I wouldn't want to be a normal JK anyways.

Anyways adorable episode looking forward to the next one.

Ahhh, there we go. See, I knew there was some connection. Netoge sounds appealing; guess i'll stick with that.

One of the IT teachers (head of the department actually lol) at my highschool set up an after school club that was pretty much exactly that. We'd sit and play Counter Strike 1.6 and Xbox games on an overhead projector for 2 hours after school and said head of department and the IT technicians all participated as well. I was freakishly good at CS then...

As a fellow Wallet Warrior (and fan of large breasts) I feel I must show my support for the StuCoPres! Wouldgethertocosplayhernetgamecharacter/10.

For a minute there in the stairwell I thought the series was about to take a very dark turn. Like Madoka level dark turn. That Ako would be the Yuki Takeya of Netoge.

I like the subtle oink when Akane changes in Rusian's head. Kyou ain't hard on the eyes either .

This series probably hits close to home for a lot of us that are gamers and have a lot of gaming friends. I haven't seen it first hand as I didn't live where the others did, but games can cause some serious real life drama. I don't think I've run into anyone I know in real life that is quite as delusional as Ako, but I don't play MMO style games.

Akane seems like she can be likeable once she gets over her stuck up attitude.

We all know that cat is smuggling sausage! Run away!

Ep. 2

- Totally on Hideki and Akane's side, never spent real money on a game and probably never will.
- I actually liked the bit where Ako and Hideki mention the important part being who the person is rather than other less substantial aspects (pansexuality).
- Partly agree with Ako in that just because something is in a game doesn't mean the feelings are only locked there, though completely break off from her in thinking game and reality are the same.

While Ako is yandere, and missing a few screws, her friends and Russian don't let her do anything too regrettable.

You know I can see this is going to backfire on Hideki.

It's been made pretty clear that Hideki only likes girls... He said he said yes to marrying Ako even though she could be a guy irl because he figured that since it's a game, it's no big deal (not to mention she'd stop pestering him about it). Do we really need to muddy up a cute rom-com with unusual orientations that don't fall into the regular hetero/homo/bi trio? There's what appears to be a couple non-hetero romance shows this season, so if you want something different from the "norm", there's your show. Anyways, isn't the special snowflake term for only being attracted to someone you know well demisexual? Or are the special snowflakes becoming a venn diagram now?

Anyways, on topic... This show is just so sweet and adorable, yet a little saddening at the same time. We know Ako didn't have friends in real life before the meet-up, which has probably put her in a deep state of depression, which could be the cause or add on to the fact that she can't fully distinguish the difference between real life and the MMO. Another possible cause would be that since she finally made some friends for once in the game with their party, she started to mix the two together to feel like she had friends in real life too. Basically, in one way or another, a state of depression from lack of people who care about her is behind her screws being loose. I actually think the writing for this show is pretty top-notch for masquerading as a sweet rom-com while hiding some darker, real-life problems people, especially the youth in Japan, may face. I'm looking forward to seeing how some of the issues with Ako are resolved!

Also, I'd have to say my top girl right now is Akane, just because I love me some petite girls, some twintails, blondes, and girls with some tsun to their dere, and she hits all those perfectly. Not to mention some official work shows she wears blue shimapan... Ako's extremely close behind her, as while her looks aren't 100% in my taste-range, she's got that clingyness I secretly adore and I feel so bad for her social situation that I just want to scoop her up, hug her, and play games with her all day while ignoring the outside world. And while Pres is my least favorite out of the three, that doesn't mean she's bad... Just that the other two are that great!

It probably also helps that Hisasi designed all of them
