This anime is set in a game company….which they use poorly.
This first episode could have been set anywhere with how little it had to do with designing a game on any level. We spent a good portion introducing everyone, another messaging each other and the last part finally revealing what game they are working on.
What is the point in giving these characters particular skills if you’re not going to try and work it into the humour?
The show needs to let loose and have a load more fun with the concept.
