3 Couples of anime gamers who found their love in the game and managed to transfer their relationship to real life.
As an experienced online game player, I have repeatedly seen how relationships were born in games, and moreover, some of them brought people to marriage. And I also saw how games ruined families, but since I’ve been in a romantic and positive mood lately, we’ll talk about the first case.
Today I have collected for you characters who were not familiar in real life before the game, but having met there, they somehow managed to transfer their feelings to real life. We will talk about this with you.
Kirigaya Kazuto and Yuuki Asuna (Sword Art Online)
And let’s immediately deal with the anime, which I’m sure many came to mind when reading the title. Here we have to watch the sad events when ten thousand players, immersed in the virtual game world, were locked in it. And the worst thing is that if you die in it, it will lead to the death of not only the character, but also the player who plays it. However, there is a way out.
To finish the game, you need to go through the tower with dangerous bosses and climb to the maximum 100th floor. And one of these heroes was our Kirito, who, although he preferred the path of a loner, he had to work with other people. So he met Asuna, with whom they managed not only to fall in love with each other, but even to find themselves an adopted daughter in the game. However, this is only the beginning.
Although I am a big fan of the first arc of the first season of the anime, it will be further that the development of the relationship of our couple will be most interesting.
They have to go through a lot of trials, both in real life and in other worlds, but that’s what they remember. Although there is romance here, it is full of exploits and absolutely atypical, and therefore I advise you to see it personally.
Ako Tamaki and Hideki Nishimura from the anime (And You Thought There Is Never a Girl Online?)
This anime introduces us to a situation popular in games, when for a long time, playing together, people forget to ask what gender their fighting comrade is. So falling in love with a female character, Hideki Nishimura found out that he was in front of an adult man and this broke the guy’s heart to pieces. He even swore to himself to avoid romance in games, but life sometimes brings its own plans. And one of these was the appearance of Ako Tamaki.
The girl not only tried to get closer to our hero, but even persuaded him to marry her in the game, and Hideki surrendered under pressure. However, the ring on his finger does not cure paranoia and complexes, so he will very carefully continue to communicate with Ako, until one day they are both invited to an offline meeting.
Well, in one thing you can be glad for them, the guys turned out to be not only of different sexes, but of an age suitable for relationships. Another question is that it is unusual and difficult for two players to build feelings in reality. But I sincerely love this anime precisely for a simple and uncomplicated comedy with a hint of romance and gaming themes.
It is unlikely that you will remember it as an original masterpiece, but you will surely have a great time watching 12 episodes, especially if you yourself like online games.
Morioka Moriko and Yuta Sakurai (Recovery of an MMO Junkie)
And finally, my favorite anime in terms of romance from today’s selection. At least due to the fact that here we are offered adult characters and adult feelings. So, for example, Morioka, having left her unloved job, realized that she needed to take a break from everything and live on the accumulated money. And as a way of relaxation, she remembered online games that she had not played for a very long time.
She created a male character for herself and went to conquer the game, but is it necessary to say that her skills turned out to be at the highest level? Fortunately, a girl approached her, who decided to help our heroine, and they instantly became close. Parallel to this, in real life, Morioka periodically stumbles upon Yuta under completely random circumstances.
And although we all immediately understand who Yuta is, but for our heroes it will be intrigue. I like this anime precisely because here real life and the game intersect smoothly, twisting into an increasingly dense knot, and the more Mori-Mori shares his stories about the real intersection with Yuta in the game, the more our heroes will begin to suspect something was wrong.
And let the romance between them develop in real life, but it was the game that initially brought them closer and greatly influenced the relationship, helping to understand each other. And therefore, for everyone who loves something kind, romantic, with adult feelings and at the same time gaming – this is your choice.
