If I hadn't read the Light Novels already and been a fan of this series, I'm sure that I would have rated this show a bit higher, but I can't take back what I already know and have read. This anime adaptation is woefully inferior to the LN, and leaves us wanting more with so many details and explanations left unanswered. The pace is far too quick for its own good, and all developments and nuance from the original source are thrown to the wind due to that. 4/10 for the anime adaptation at best.
For any that enjoyed the show, I highly recommend reading a volume or two of the light novel. It's an infinitely superior experience for sure, and very enjoyable.
this show is so boring and cliché. SAO and re-zero spinoff but without doing anything real to make it interesting. After a number of episodes dedicated to Ichirou running around being cute with his various women companions, I gave up. It had small element of uniqueness which maybe will be used later, I don't know. I can't take it anymore.
