After a handful of needless plot complications, MMO Junkie gets back to doing what it did well in the beginning, which is to say there were so many moments this week where I could really understand Morioka.
Given this show is apparently only 10 episodes long, as a second last episode this is pretty satisfying. Sakurai and Morioka now know who they are online and are coming to terms with that, though it is happening in their usual manner which means that for every step forward or actual act that seems assertive they then fall back three steps as they second guess themselves and how their action might be perceived. These two are genuinely perfect for each other and it will be nice when they finally realise that.
However, what I continue to love about this show is that the characters aren’t teenagers and they respond to situations with a little bit more wisdom and life experience (even as they also continue to make stupid assumptions and jump to conclusions). They’ve kind of nailed what it means for those of us who are just faking adulting and hoping no one ever catches us at it.
I really like Morioka and Sakurai as characters and I look forward to seeing the conclusion to their story.
Thanks for reading.
