Hello, this is Kadir. I am the lead author of the blog you are reading. My fondness for TV series and Anime made me a good researcher about the release dates. I like to share my researches and analyses on the blog.


  1. I thought it was an imitation series, as there are many anime like Bofuri. But when I was watching, I realized I was wrong. It had a unique script besides its classic atmosphere. Sally and Mii are my favorite characters. I’m dying to be able to watch them more. I hope there will be a second season because I’m moving towards the manga out of impatience.

  2. It is a game anime, but quite different. I like the anime because it is an anime that gets rid of the common stereotype of this type of game or isekai anime. In other words, they made a real game anime that can be entered and exit the game at any time, without any invocation, being stuck, or getting stuck. Even normal life scenes were scattered in the intervals. The game in the anime is also quite fantastic and full of action. I’m looking forward to seeing the second season and the next adventures of the series.
