In the netoge world, she began her new life as a refreshing and handsome character named Hayashi. While starting out as a beginner, a pretty character named Lily reached out to help her.

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.

      so hi everybody i am new to this site, and to this club, and i hope we all have a good time talking about animes and stuff
      so had this question for a while, since im a big, and i mean HUGE hyouka fan ;
      will it get a sequel ? like a second season, a movie, or even OVAs or specials ?
      cause lots of other fans said "yes why not" as well as those who said " no that'd be boring"
      what do you guys think about it ? it really deserves a sequel even though the end was an end to the whole story as far as we all think
