Surprisingly Entertaining
22 August 2018 | by peterfmodelSee all my reviews

There is little original or new about the premise, young man trapped in a MMORPG game with incredible powers, the way its done is amazingly entertaining. While all powerful, the world is unknown and the attempts at exploring this new world is both entertaining and interesting. However, we are not dealing with the good guys here. While Momonga shows an ability to help the helpless and avenge the wronged, he is not a good guy. This balance is actually critical as the key tension is the balance between being a good guy and being an evil character. Well worth the watch, i only wish the DVD's would come out quicker so i can fully view season 2 and 3.
