I see this show hasn’t given up on the long-winded explanations of MMO concepts at the start of the episodes. Anyway, this week’s episode introduces a new recurring character in Tetra, who seems to have a strange attachment to Naotsugu. So far, it doesn’t look like there’s too much meaning to the fact that she’s floating in the ending animation, but I guess we don’t know that much about her yet. We’ve seen some pretty player-like NPCs already, right? There was also a brief moment this week with Akatsuki walking by the guy in Akihabara outside the weapon shop which seemed important…but would a spy from the South really look that obviously suspicious?
I’ve always been pretty averse to raids. I almost always quit MMOs before I reach the raid-scale dungeons and the ones I’ve actually played extensively limited parties to 8 or so, so I’ve never experience these sorts of large-scale fights. Honestly, they’ve always seemed too chaotic for me to really find much interest. I guess I’m much more interested in skirmishes. It looks like next week the raid starts and I’ll see how these things go.
