This episode should be much earlier, so stale jokes of the Hiro-Reona pair could be replaced by the group dynamic, also Reona's motivation is one of the few good jokes in the show, along with Martin Time.

Ep11-Well, another show got me and Full Dive officially jumped the rails! It might do a Full Dive off the proverbial cliff. After being a comedic commentary on gamers, now it tries to be a serious mystery drama (or whatever this is)?? I don't think I've seen a show forget what it was about so quickly and completely...

Ep12- Full Dive takes things up/down a level by practically evaporating what comedy it might still have, daring to posit that it can actually train and motivate someone for real life but also has the (??) to truncate the story to make way for a sequel hook. If anyone out there still likes this, please speak up now... Confused

I think the studio were trolling us by making an Anime that was crappier than the synopsis,

Even if this gets a season 2 I think you'd have to pay me to watch it.

I love that central irony. That the fans of the show get their best moments in defiance of the shows central gimmick. The very thing it was selling the series on. Still I guess it was nice that the MC finally decided to try and self improve which I think is the one element that remained the same.

the moral of this story seems to be less about succeeding or not, and simply about finding the resolve to persevere through exhausting adversity.


You, the audience, were the protagonist all along!!

An afterward- The English VA doing Kamui is doing a stellar job for what looks like his first gig, between him and JYB I am looking forward to the coming dubs because Ep4 is hilarious...

Having sat through it in Japanese with Subs - I have no intention of subjecting myself to it again in English no matter how good the VA's are....

Sorry to hear that, but Ep5 is still hilarious as the English VAs keep delivering the quality (listen after Misarisa shows up for a JYB gem)...
