A Playthrough of a Certain Dude’s VRMMO Life anime (Toaru Ossan no VRMMO Katsudouki) will adapt a light novel written by Howahowa Shiina and illustrated by Yamaada. The series began serialization on Shosetsuka ni Naro in 2013 and then moved to the AlphaPolis website in August 2016. A manga adaptation by Shuya Rikudo is currently ongoing,
AlphaPolis describes the plot as:
A new type of VRMMO called “One More Free Life Online” is out. He logs in as a young boy avatar called “Earth”. Taichi Tanaka (38, single) has a regular office job and enjoys playing video games in his free time. In a world where the player is free to do as they wish, he decides to master a skill that’s been deemed to be useless! He makes potions that are too much of a hassle to make, cooks food that is excessively too good, and uses bizarre original weapons to hunt monsters… An adventure manga about an ordinary middle-aged man leisurely enjoying his VRMMO sandbox game!
