Full Dive, short for Full Dive: This Ultimate Next-Gen Full Dive RPG Is Even Shittier than Real Life! is a new anime series animated by ENGI under the new list of animes for the spring season and everyone is just as excited with Season 1 and how many episodes will there be.
Full Dive follows the story of Hiroshi Yūki, under the name Hiro in his games, a high school student who loves to play virtual reality massively multiplayer online role-playing game or VRMMORPGs. When he went to a store, where the game store manager, Reona Kisaragi, forced him to purchase Kiwame Quest, a game.
However, it was more than just a game. The game transcends more than what can be seen on screen as it tries to pursue realism into a whole new level, something that goes beyond the game, and into life itself. Hiroki tries to find his place in the game but struggles to find just the right position in it. Throughout the game, he encounters a lot of girls who want some things from him.
Hiroki realizes that when you've hit on the game or hurt in there, it would automatically translate into real pain and could result in wounds that could last for days to fully heal. It’s not your usual VRMMORPG, it cannot be casually played at all. The reward of the game is this: the sense of accomplishment.
