*** ''ExtraCredits'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJ56Kia8dTU had an episode about]] [=MMOs=], and said that someday, there might be the first attempt at integration between the Web and Real Life, completely breaking the barrier between those two worlds. ''SummerWars'' is basically what happens if we go too far with it...

** To add to the above, supercomputers are generally stored in purpose-made facilities which include very efficient air conditioning systems to keep the machines cool. The house the story takes place in is a traditional Japanese house with little to no air conditioning, relying on cross-breezes and electric fans to keep cool, and this movie is set in the middle of summer. Naturally, the place is going to be very warm, hence the need for an improvised cooling system.

** Part of this is actually discussed in the movie! It isn't actually a home computer unit, but a supercomputer that was originally slated for a university, though they are 'borrowing' it. In Real Life, cooling/heat management in supercomputers (given the number of processors that are so closely packed together and thus generating a lot of heat density) is difficult, and even with the special engineering that goes into designing the complex cooling systems of such units, the ability to remove waste heat is a huge limiting factor of capability. Thus, having an external 'heat sink' (the ice) to which the heat energy can transfer out of is very important to upping the usable prossessing power.

Added "Computers Have No Coolers?" question
Added DiffLines:
[[folder:Computers Have No Coolers?]] * When planning something to stop Love Machine from spreading, the heroes have an idea: Using a giant computer. However, this computer requires huge blocks of ice to stop it from overheating, which raises a question: What happened to the cooler? Usually, home computers are built with coolers on them that prevent them from over heating. Considering this is a computer that can be bought from a computer store, weren't the developers supposed to equip it with a cooler that, at the very least, prevents it from MELTING DOWN? [[/folder]]

** There was a theory on another page that basically stated that it's possible Love Machine could see Kenji's physical location at the time it sent the code, which just happened to be the family home of its creator, Wabisuke, and wanted to toy with Wabisuke. In addition, Kenji happened to be the first person to respond with an answer that was remotely correct.

** The possible explanation is that each key represents a specific movement and that it can possibly be modified to work however you want it (which is probably how Mansuke manages all those complex moves with a Nintendo DS, with all the moves being on par with Kazuma's, despite there being only 6 buttons and a bunch of button combinations to work with).

Don't use This Troper.
** Couldn't she have been watching re-runs up to a certain point? It seems semi-plausible, anyways. Yumi could probably get just as excited about such a thing, even if this troper isn't too familiar with sports.
