YMMV: Real Account

  • They Copied It, So It Sucks: Many, many comparisons have been made between the manga and Sword Art Online as soon as it began serializing. It doesn't help that the main character is similar to Kirito in spending most of his life online and the "death game" premise is almost the same, right down to having ten thousand users trapped and congregated into a single space by the creator at the beginning. The setup so far, however, seems to be going for a thematically different direction.
    • A few comparisons have also been made with Summer Wars, with both works featuring a social network that takes up prevalence in modern life.
    • Truth to be told, both Kirito and Ataru are strikingly similar to Yukiteru.
