    The surprise diamond in the rough
    With male NEETs who suddenly have some kind of adventure populating the best-seller charts as a means of trying to remind the youth of Japan that reality isn't so bad, an unmarried former professional woman at thirty is an unusual choice for a protagonist, even if the ugly side of Japan's inequality towards the sexes comes bubbling to the surface every now and again because of it.
    In most animes ...

    a really neat take on a classic theme
    Updated to episode 10.

    "Damn, there are couples everywhere just 'cause it's Christmas Eve. I must retreat at once... or I'll die." - Morioka Moriko, a really neat lady.

    To say this light-hearted anime about a 30yo NEET mmo junkie shut-in resonates with me, a 24yo NEET mmo junkie shut-in, understates the experience of this glorious anime immensely. If you've ever played an MMO, ...

    Well, superficially speaking, the female lead is...
    INSANELY FREAKING CUTE. My God, Moriko is cute. She's adorable. She's the perfect example of how beautiful and sharp women can be in their thirties (and later). She is so cute it makes me want to bang my head on the wall. Anyway, I'm not claiming to be profound here. But as of now I think she's one of the most attractive and intelligently portrayed "real women" in anime.

    So if nothing else, ...

    Another gaming anime from a different perspective
    This shapes up to be an interesting show that will be exploring everything from personal/social issues and romance, to game culture from the perspective of a players view. Taking place in both reality and in as game playtime, we get to see different aspects of peoples reactions, and how much manages to make it past their mental filters to the screen. In the first episode they have managed to ...

    Not everyone will like it, or get it. That's okay.
    Yes, it's the 21st century and people do actually meet and fall in love online. Now you'll probably either love this or think it's a pile of steaming garbage - it's one of those kinds of anime.

    If you're below a certain age or station in life, I'll be blunt and say you're probably not going to enjoy this much. It's like The Office, the UK version with its deep cringiness and without the ...

    How is it to be an adult?
    Contains SPOILERS from episode 10.

    This anime portrays being an adult in a way that we all (or majority) can relate to. Struggling with our jobs, interpersonal relationships...when we grow up it's harder to trust people around us, for one reason or another. Communicating our honest feelings is the hardest part, as people tend to put up a front trying to impress or play around pretending ...

    Cliched romcom plot, but extremely fun and well-produced
    End of the season edit: It delivered. Watch it, if you haven't already. :3

    I write this review after seeing the first three episodes - I usually don't do it this early, but I think Recovery of an MMO Junkie really deserves a shout-out. It's a huge positive surprise and already one of my favourite anime in the fall season.

    This show uses many tropes that were done ...

    A Nice, Nerdy Slice of Life.
    When I tune in for this show, I don't worry about unexpected plot twists or anything like that (so far). This show knows exactly what it's trying to do, who it's trying to reach, and it does so with heart and awkwardness that is amusing and endearing. The characters themselves aren't necessarily the most memorable you'll find in anime, but the show is done in a much better way than some other ...

    Amazing from Start to Finish
    It's rare in anime to find a series with adult protagonists. Even rarer for a romance. With adult gamers it's literally unheard of. Recovery of an MMO Junkie is an outstanding series from start to finish. While the romance takes time to develop the way it plays out always feels true to the characters. I can't recommend this series enough for those who enjoy romantic comedies.
