The Plot of Recovery of an MMO Junkie
The story of Recovery of an MMO Junkie is about the MMO game – Fruits de Mer. It follows Moriko Morioka, a 30-year-old woman who is happy about leaving her job. She starts playing video games as she has a lot of free time to spare. In the game world, Moriko takes on the form of Hayashi – her dashing male avatar.
She meets a kind and adorable healer name Lily; and both almost immediately become friends. Moriko fully immerses herself into the MMO and rarely leaves the safety of her apartment, only leaving if necessary. Meanwhile, on the other side of the town, a corporate worker, Yuuta Sakurai has joined Fruits de Mer. They bump into each other at a convenience store one night. Little do they know that this encounter was fate as both of them has much more in store for them.

Finished Recovery of an MMO Junkie tonight and it was excellent. I kinda wish it had more of a resolution in the end (or there's a season 2), but it did a fantastic job of attaching us to the characters and giving a ship we could passionately sail upon. pic.twitter.com/WjGXyM71jB— MandJTV (@MandJTV_Michael) February 9, 2018

Recovery of an MMO Junkie Season 2 Release Date
Recovery of an MMO Junkie was received very well by the community and the chances of Recovery of an MMO Junkie Season 2 is very likely to happen. The issue is that the original manga had been on a hiatus due to the creator, Rin Kokuyo’s health condition was not good.
There is no need to worry about the manga as according to some sources the manga has not been canceled since Rin will be able to get back into working once her condition improves while other sources state the ending of the manga. While the anime may be delayed, we pray for Rin Kokuyo’s health to improve.
