Love how flustered he is because of the kiss.....There is still hope for the ship to sail.

Edit: Anyway, Shin girlfriend died in game so, as the theory says about the only people who got reincarnated were the ones who interacted with Shin meaning she had to have been send here like Holly and Shadow at some point. Right?

@Scrwd Was it not mentioned in chapter 47 that Hibineko died, Holly died before Shadow died, and thats how they were able to reunite with each other? As far as we know, Mc's GF (Marino) died way before he killed the last boss, thats why they asked whether she is somewhere in the world or not.
It was 100% a death game and there were people that legit died ingame

@Scrwd ??? No, it wasn't a death game. Only an actual minority were PKers, and even then, MC took out the major PK guilds on his own while on a rampage. He explains this in this chapter. Also, he solo'd the final boss because it was soloable. It wasn't a raid boss. Also explained in this chapter. During that time, people were still alive too, they specifically say in this chapter that he saved several lives. His friends died of unspecified reasons, possibly from just general quests and such, but most common people were still alive while MC killed the last boss.

@OsoJr It became a death game, remember? I assume that its SAO level of death game, and we only know that the current "players" previously died before, and the only living player is MC. Only MC's irl body is in question, while the bodies of the others most likely have died off already. As for whether they want to return or not, only MC expresses his wish to go back home, since we know for sure that he still have ties to the real world and has spent the least amount of time in the world as compared to people like Shadow or Holly. From what we know, he only spent gametime + around 2 months after being transported 500 years into the future, while the others has spent 20-30 years in "The New Gate" already.
It's completely understandable he's still used to the real world and still wants to return back home to what he was used to before, and as Neko said, his mind will change the longer he stays here

@Scrwd I'm wondering if they still think they're in a VR game or not. It's actually maybe hard to tell. It's been several centuries since they beat the game, and the time between them awakening is inconsistent. Some haven't seen each other for several years too. If this were still a a game, their real bodies would have been long dead. Then again, they say that dream like states actually only happen for like about the last 10 minutes before waking up, despite dreams often feeling like hours. So, it's as equally possible that those several years in the VR was just maybe a couple weeks or months. Either way, this VR world is still just as real as reality, as in they have all their senses, emotions, and minds. They're also already surrounded by loved ones, and have a fairly secure way of life. In logical terms, they already have more than enough to cover all levels of Maslow's pyramids.

@OsoJr the lack of modern amenities can be jarring, especially for people who invested enough to buy a version of Full-dive VR for a game.

okay, I thought what Shin was going to ask them was, is she your flesh & blood daughter, and how did that work. Like, as a player avatar, were you pregnant, or did she just spawn in? cause the players rez'ing and now growing old (mentioned some died of old age already, and that seems to have just been completely glossed over) and conceiving/having children I think would be a pretty major reveal/point of emphasis of what their lives are like/capable of now.

I hope MC's lover isn't secretly the villian.

I'm wondering, if Marino is alive again in this world, would they want to go back? I mean, heck, this world seems to be pretty good so far, aside from the demons. Like, politically, no country really seems to be warmongering or tyrannical. Plus, Schnee is already confirmed to be the strongest and she's still at least twice weaker than MC. Just generally, there little problems that can really burden them in living a dope ass life in post-medieval fantasy world.

I wonder if Marino was his girlfriend in the real world and then the game, or if it all started ingame. I'm guessing he became a grim reaper because she was killed? But now I'm also really curious about what got him back to normal...

But don't you dare to spoil me with the novel! I'll read that eventually.

@Akabane lol i thought the same, after all, why would him want to know that if he has no plans to make a high human/high elf child? xD
