Satisfying Conclusion? ✅
Emotional?❌
Actual Romance?❌ (A tiny bit, like literally one scene)
Fanservice/Nudity? ❌
Recommend? ✅ (If you have kids who enjoy gaming and cool action animations.)

Genre: Sci-fi , Family-Film (With bouts of comedy)

What is this anime?
It is about Facebook's new Metaverse they are trying to push out. Except in this world it has already happened and Facebook is called "OZ" instead. The whole world essentially runs on OZ. Then Oopsie Whoopsie! OZ has a virus! Many essential services get taken down and the MC is accidentally responsible for it all. We watch his journey as he defeats the virus and saves the world.

Did I enjoy it?
It sure is an odd film, with bright, abstract colors. And game (OZ) character designs that dare I say are unnecessarily creepy/unnerving. This film would work well if you needed something to watch on family night, especially if your kids are gamer-obsessed. (unless your kids get nightmares easily. like foreal the character designs are messed up.) The random bouts of comedy are what I enjoyed most about the film, and most were well executed. It was enjoyable when I watched it with friends, however I cannot see myself ever rewatching.
