Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episode 5: Good Progress

Review:

Another great episode as the real world and the game world collide. At least even the characters are acknowledging there is a lot of coincidence at play, but they aren’t pushing it to ridiculous levels. Plus it was kind of clear that the convenience store guy would know Morioka in the game so that reveal didn’t feel all that forced (though him also knowing that Lily is actually a guy might be stretching it unless we find out how that came about).

I love that this show is so incredibly relatable at times. When Lily declared she spilt coffee but both she and her keyboard were safe I could relate that so much. In my case it is more often pepsi or water but I’ll save the keyboard at work or at home before many other things if there’s a spill. These small details and moments just kind of brings these otherwise fairly simple characters to life.

Also, this was the first week where all of the in-game moments seemed to focus on the character’s real lives and it made them far more compelling than earlier segments where they seemed to just be questing or chilling online. So with both halves of the story helping the main plot along and with me being totally invested in these characters at this point, I can’t wait to see what happens next. Though, minor complaint, not loving Morioka’s new hair style.


Thanks for reading.

  1. i agree that this progression is nice. i like that sakurai isnt an idiot. his reluctance to run out and check on morioka was also really believable because of how awkward it would be if he was wrong. really looking forward to seeing how their relationship changes now

  2. I really like how they’re progressing with this. Morioka was especially relatable when she kept on trying to get ready for a date and ended up thinking how that money could have benefited her in other ways. I also liked her old hairstyle. It was messy, yes, but it suited her.
