Cast & Credits
Meet Takumi Satsuki, played by Amane Okayama, a typical loser type character, an introvert who doesn't have experience towards girls. He enjoys playing Dragon quest where he role-plays as a female character. One day he met a character named Goro-san in game, where he was saved by him from a boss monster. He eventually became friends with Goro-san, whom he respects a lot because he is nice and very reliable, so when Goro told him he is looking for a place to live, he immediately offers to share his place to him. Little did he know Goro-san is a woman, Miyako Okamoto, played by Honda Tsubasa. Miyako is not just beautiful but also stylish, the type of woman whom you would not think she plays video games. They start to live together and they discover that their personality is not the same as their in game personas.
This drama is short, only 6 episodes, 20 minutes each, so in total this could be a 2 hour movie, but since this a drama format, the pacing didn't suffer, thanks to that. A fun and fast watch drama, full of clichés yet cute moments, good chemistry between the leads and hilarious side characters lead by a well known anime voice actor Miyano Mamoru (Death Note, Steins Gate, Soul Eater, Durara, seriously this dude is everywhere lol). This drama is also very relatable if you play video games especially MMORPGs. Watch our hero battle his anxiety towards women with the help of his online gaming friends and real life friends.
Watch this if:
-You find Honda tsubasa cute (long haired honda tsubasa FTW)
-You love cute romantic comedy
-You are interested to see Miyano Mamoru in Jdrama
-You love Dragon quest or gaming general and if you fantasize yourself having a relationship where both of you playing video games. #relationshipgoals

Tsubasa shines and Amane whines, and Terrace House's Kakei Miwako has a lovely turn as a comedic vixen playing Ayano, Miyako's best friend. The story is short and sweet, and ends on a kiss.
