Yeah... I actually rather enjoy Infinite Dendrogram, the LN series. It's not the best written, but it has enough interesting hooks that I enjoy keeping up with it. But I knew the anime would take a while to get to the more interesting stuff. I, personally, do enjoy the mechanics discussion in VRMMO series, but even if you're someone who does, Dendrogram really plays it fast and loose.
What it's good at is cool shounen battles where unique powers are pitted against each other, but that doesn't happen for a while. I suspect the anime will go up through Franklin's Game, which is fine.
Though it's annoying that the last LN volume was a bunch of side stories and the NEXT one will be as well.
Meanwhile Ascendance of a Bookworm only has, like, 6 out of 20 volumes translated so far.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
