I tried watching that last night, and was immediately put off by the main character's voice. He sounds like he's six years old. Does it get better? Also, what is the story about, besides the kid being stuck in a video game?
I’d probably spoil something if I told you any more than you already know. The plot unfolds pretty slowly. There are multiple layers going on, but the frame of it all is a genius computer programmer who creates an immersive MMO in order to collect data from people to create the ultimate AI as a replacement for the child he was unable to have due to the death of his lover.
Try the dub if you find the English off-putting. This is early 2000s anime after all.
