Plot Summary: In the year 2138, virtual reality gaming is booming. Yggdrasil, a popular online game is quietly shut down one day. However, one player named Momonga decides to not log out. Momonga is then transformed into the image of a skeleton as “the most powerful wizard.” The world continues to change, with non-player characters (NPCs) beginning to feel emotion. Having no parents, friends, or place in society, this ordinary young man Momonga then strives to take over the new world the game has become.

First Thoughts: What in the fuck is this? Oh, wait, I’ll tell you, it’s the same ‘ol shit you already saw in shows like Sword Art Online or No Game No Life and yes, they are about as mind-numbing and bad as those two. You have a main character who’s the GREATEST WIZARD OF THE GAME and he can beat anyone who comes in his way and…..of course, it gets monotonous after the first few minutes where it becomes the basic by numbers MMO—wait, no, DMMORPG setting. The “D” is for dive, heh heh……shut up. Hell, even SAO had a first good episode and you know you fucked up if I said that SAO did better than you. The animation is sub-par at best and why I also mention NGNL is because this is a MADHOUSE production.

And to think, you guys are getting good again with Parasyte, Death Parade and currently one of my favorite anime still running My Love Story. Now you’re back to this shit and I hope when One Punch Man debuts, you put good effort on that better than this.

Oh god.

This gets the 3-EPISODE TREATMENT. In other words, I doubt this’ll get any better from here but what the hell, I wanna see how they fuck this up.

Well, that’s two (or three) shit shows out of 8 so far. Will the next one suck more? Stay tuned. Same MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid. Same channel.
