First I thought it's basically the same as Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash. But where the characters there don't know anything about there previous life, they don't suffer from amnesia here. Basically it seems like a SAO situation at first, except it isn't - it's not the video game but seemingly another world mixed with the game, as there are many differences to the game "Elder Tale" which they all played. And pretty soon they discover they resurrect after dying "in-game". The characters are morphed with their video game characters which leads to some problems like the character is taller than the player which isn't really good for moving ;) Of course they have to learn fighting from the beginning like in Grimgar but without the fear of death and with the enhanced bodies of their characters it's just not as bad as it could be. The characters are pretty good designed but there isn't much of a background for them - their emotional turmoil is described pretty detailed nethertheless.
