Sword Art Online have taught us that Virtual Reality may be very dangerous, and when things go wrongs, they really go wrong. But, this series is on a different scale. The protagonist, Hiroshi Yuki is a school student and like any other of his age group, he plays VRMMO.
But, now that he have spent all his money on this “Ultra-Realistic” game, he is stuck and have no option but to play.
Episode 4 Recap
“The Only One to Beat the Game.” When any gamer hear these words, his/her curiosity reaches a new peak. Why? There are millions of players trying to conquer a particular game and the number of players who have cleared it is only 1. What do you think will happen?
The player will become a celebrity. But, the player who has cleared this hyper-realistic game will need some serious determination, which is severely lacking in our protagonist. What’s more challenging is that he is accustomed to playing games where there are no sensations and everything is synthetic.
After coming close to getting his leg severed, any sane person would quit the game permanently. Yuki did the same, but he got a better “deal” from Reona.
Most of the episode covered Yuki’s real-life problems. It seems he is a popular runner and not many can beat him in the tracks. But, this time his luck did not helped him anyway.
For a sportsman, the worst thing that can happen to them is defeat and the humiliation that follows after. But, Yuki’s situation was worse than the worst. He not only tripped while running, he lost the race and also wet his pants. If this wasn’t enough, his idol also taunted him after that.
All-in-all, this was a life-changing event for Yuki.
But, if you ask me whether he deserved all these events? No, of course not. Nobody deserves anything like this. But, I have a feeling that now that our protagonist have returned again in the game, he will perform better than before and this time he will not fall into such situations again.
Full Dive releases every Wednesdays. Episode 5 will release on May 5, 06:30.
The next episode will cover Yuki’s judgement in the game, and this event will probably decide how he proceeds further.
Hiroshi Yuki has just picked up Kiwame Quest, the realest VRMMO ever made. But this RPG is TOO lifelike; he can smell, taste, feel—and when he’s hurt in it, his physical body is hurt too. Even worse, his abilities in this adventure suck as much as they do in daily life. This was supposed to be immersion, not reality. Consumed with winning, he swears he’ll conquer this game—even if it kills him!
