As a romantic comedy, this anime delivers heavily on romantic tension and situational humor.  The premesis is interesting and the characters are endearing.  While the MMO is a central part of the story, it really is more of a means to an end.  If you are looking for an anime that is heavily set within a video game type of setting, this wouldn't work for you.  Instead, it is where all the characters meet and the real action occurs outside in the real world.  The comedy thankfully doesn't solely rely on embarrassing situations between the two main protagonists.  The side characters have their own nuances and personalities that play heavily into the comedy. 

 

Both main protagonists have situations that they have had to deal with and I think that most adults have gone through a period in their life where they either chose to be a NEET for a time or considered the possibility.  I think that it also shows a fairly good picture of the allure that MMORPGs have from a social aspect. 

 

Unfortunately, at this point in time, the author of the source material is still in recovery from an illness and thus a continuation of the series has not been announced.  Still, the series has a good start, and if the author recovers, I'm sure that the series will pick up where it left off and do well.

      Hachiman Hikigaya is an apathetic high school student with narcissistic and semi-nihilistic tendencies. He firmly believes that joyful youth is nothing but a farce, and everyone who says otherwise is just lying to themselves.

      In a novel punishment for writing an essay mocking modern social relationships, Hachiman's teacher forces him to join the Volunteer Service Club, a club that aims to extend a helping hand to any student who seeks their support in achieving their goals. With the only other club member being the beautiful ice queen Yukino Yukinoshita, Hachiman finds himself on the front line of other people's problems—a place he never dreamed he would be. As Hachiman and Yukino use their wits to solve many students' problems, will Hachiman's rotten view of society prove to be a hindrance or a tool he can use to his advantage?
