Hiroshi Yuki has just picked up Kiwame Quest, the realest VRMMO ever made. But this RPG is TOO lifelike; he can smell, taste, feel—and when he’s hurt in it, his physical body is hurt too. Even worse, his abilities in this adventure suck as much as they do in daily life. This was supposed to be immersion, not reality. Consumed with winning, he swears he’ll conquer this game—even if it kills him!

3S review no.37 (short, simple and salty/sweet/spicy) So… another anime where you get into a video game… what a breath of fresh air. At least it’s not an isekai so that’s something. You are not stuck in the game, you can quit anytime you want, the catch is that you don’t want to do so, cause the game is so shitty, so hard and frustrating that you want to finish it. That’s an ok approach to be fair and a very realistic relationship with a video game that most of us had at some point in time. In that manner this show is if anything else a nice study about video games and pursuit of realism. Why do we play games in the first place? Most likely to have fun and avoid reality, not to relive the frustration of it. Anyway since you wouldn’t want to play such a game why would you want to watch a show about it? And the answer to that question is… I don’t really know. At first the story can be intriguing but the whole thing gets really old really fast. Anything that can go wrong will go wrong and the MC will have trouble even at the smallest tasks. It gets repetitive and predictable. So if you liked the premise you are lucky cause you gonna get a lot of it. It’s all kind of superficial though, cause in the end, weather he is weak or not, weather he is humiliated or not, weather everything goes wrong or not, one way or another things are gonna work out for him. The characters are…. What you’d expect, I mean you can make a case that the MC is different cause he is weak, really weak blah blah blah but in reality nothing changes, he just manages to surpass every obstacle one way or another like every other typical shounen MC does. Rest of the cast is also pretty stereotypical, forgettable and eventually turns into a harem, it’s not the most typical of harems, but it’s nothing exciting either. Animation is very basic, it’s crisp but there is not too much movement, not a lot of frames but a lot of cgi backgrounds. Character design is also rather uninspiring and forgettable. Sound doesn’t escape the mediocrity either, very basic. The opening is forgettable but the ending is very enjoyable, it’s typical goofy harem ending, but you know, still works better than a boring normal ending theme. Voice acting is nothing to write home about either, especially the lead, I feel he could be so much better, even in MHA he is like the weakest VA even though he is the lead, I mean he is not terrible and his high pitch is funny at times, but still I think there are so much better VAs out there stuck doing secondary roles for whatever reason. The rest of the cast is ok. So, is it worth a watch? Meh, not really, I can’t recommend even though it is not terrible (stiil I’d rather watch this over SAO). The creator’s previous work (The hero is overpowered but overly cautious) was more enjoyable, they are similar shows, parodizing something mainstream, yet they both share a main issue (an issue that is even apparent in One punch man). It’s just that it’s way more apparent in this one. The same thing they wanna make fun of, end up using as well, so at times this show feels like a SAO clone instead of a SAO parody. The thought behind it ain’t half bad, make a parody of something wile also trying to present a decent and coherent story with likeable characters. But this is such a difficult thing to do and while it was somewhat successful in his previous work (story was more coherent, the male and female lead were more likeable) length also played some part in it, unlike the overpowered hero this one is not a one season show, it already feels like the premise has gotten old I’m wandering for how long it can keep up.
