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

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.
by Julietta -
Such a great series, the dub is amazing! Josh Grelle really shines in this role and I can’t recommend it enough!
by Cowson -
Cute/funny series with adorable characters. Explores the relationships online vs. real world and the social anxieties as the two begin to cross over. The english dub is great - the voice actors do a fantastic job. Too bad it's only 11 episodes but it doesn't necessarily feel cut short. I don't normally go for rom-coms, but feel lucky to have found this series by accident as it's one of my favorites.
A show for the neet in all of us
by Andrea -
This show was so cute and original, with a sweet refreshing romance. I loved Momo's internal monologues. Only con is there is little to the packaging ( no real extras) .
Well worth the watch!

First and foremost, I enjoyed this series, the characters and their interactions are really what drives the series! As with many Funimation releases, you will get a digital copy of the series enclosed in the set. As much as I would have loved to received a limited edition of this release, the case just includes a slipcover with the discs in a standard case which is commonplace of many releases. However, despite that, the sheer enjoyment I received from this series makes this set well worth it!
