Unpopular opinion but I never liked romance anime. The narrative was generally very bare-bones and melodramatic. There was not much creativity put into them, considering the majority of them take place in high school and look very plain overall. Net-juu no Susume has chosen to conceptually divert its attention to how 2 MMO junkies come to meet and fall in love through gaming and how the anime uses its otherworldly advantage to create a more colorful pattern in its background feels like there’s a more cheerful vibe which I think suits a romance show a lot better than a lukewarm interpretation of Japan or high school that was made to be dramatic for the sake of amplifying drama. Conflict is fine; even necessary a lot of the times. However, I do not favor playing up the dramatic effect by making things look dark and depressing. It just reminds me of Spanish soap operas.
And really, that’s it. I could talk more about the characters but I’d like to watch more of the series and talk more on it as there’s not much to talk about. I just wanted to express that really quick. Maybe I’ll do more shorts like this.
