Ratings & Reviews
A very good romcom
by PinkZach -
I thought this anime was pretty good. One of my favorite things about this series was how it portrayed the main character, Morioka, who is a hikikomori. MMO Junkie is funny, but the romance aspects can be cringy at times (Although this pretty much comes with the romcom territory). No problems with the visuals on the BDs, and the dub is very well done living up to Funimation's other dubs. Looks nice on the shelf too.
Recovery well under way
by Richard -
Recovery of an MMO Junkie is one of those rare series that I find both refreshing and rewatchable. It's a romantic comedy with elements of the MMO lifestyle weaved throughout it that show how close people connect in a virtual world.
Morioko is a 32 year old NEET who has escaped into Fruits de Mer, an online MMO, where we see her interactions with fellow guild members and their real world repercussions.
For those who are players in MMOs, you will find a lot of familiarity in with your own personal experiences.
I don't want to give away too much, but suffice it to say this anime is about the blending of lives between both worlds and the self perception it endows us with.
The series comes in a combined Blu-Ray/Dvd/Digital format and includes a final episode that is more like an OVA. The only thing I noticed is in the first few episodes, the volume mix between voice and music seems off but it is still my favorite series to rewatch on a regular basis.
Slow blossoming of the shy computer neet
by TERESA -
The main character has retreated from the world into playing MMOs. She is very shy and has a hard time interacting with others outside of the game. Her relationships with the people in the game start to bleed out into real life as she meets them. There is some humor but mostly it is about someone emerging from their shell slowly and gaining connections to the real world.
It is very well done and very sweet. You are both cringing and wishing them well at the awkwardness. It was especially heartwarming since I know people who are like this.
The voice acting was superb.
