Just finished reading the novel. I think the anime would have been way better if it had followed the book. Even though I liked the MMORPG part the pyramid scheme and the mass suicide arcs sucked ass. I can see why they would omit the druggie part, but not why they'd do the same with the crazy religion part.
So does the dude bang the chick or what?
No, just the chick from high school... back when he was still in high school.
Wow, having had no sex for 3 years must have sucked...
You're saying this on /a/ of all places?
RS of the novel
or at leas spoil us the important parts
