Wasn't "The King's Avatar" a summer anime? Didn't show up on the search... just finished the 12ep series based on the LN/manga etc... which has quite a few I heard, so it'll be around for a while.
It's rather good as others said... and I'm not a gamer, so I really don't care about that so much as the storytelling itself, and the story is rather solid... SoL essentially, and I guess it's realistic due to his age, he gets 'let go' etc.
Though, I would've thought that technology would have taken the use of keyboards away by now... VR use etc... guess that hasn't happened yet?
Setup in S1 for S2 is rather well done I thought, but I don't know this industry, which isn't explained too much, perhaps most viewers of this already know about the ins and outs of the gamer world.
Still well done, only complaint that I agree with is the subs aren't left up on screen enough... a dub would work easily with this series and fix that problem.
i'll wait for a japanese dub as with K0F:D, first chinese 3DCG series i'm liking :)

Haven't watched, but I did like that Chinese "The Kings Avatar" about gamers... rather well done... should be another season soon, especially as it is.... can't think of the word, but fan based online collective writing or something like that...
Also, just for side info, there was a good article on a female gamer in ... South Korea... the problems of females in the 'sport'....should say competition.... but it depends upon how the word sports is used these days.... as American football seems more fan based 'fantasy' stuff than the real thing these days... same pattern emerging... anyway, the article: http://www.espn.com/espn/feature/story/_/id/20692051/how-teenage-gamer-became-reluctant-icon-south-korea-feminist-movement

Chinese gaming anime "King's Avatar" I think it was.... only this one is concentrating on the actual people more than their antics online....
as that series isn't japanese dubbed yet unlike KofD, meanwhile i'm still seeing it despite fillers but ep.22 got better... finally rugal fighting them so I'll wait for #23 and 24 dub, in case Geese died i wonder if his tourney will be cancelled :(
