Funny thing, but ever since I played Persona 5, I can’t help but think of Ren Amamiya/Joker whenever Hikaru is shown, to the point where I’m hearing Xander Mobus as Hikaru’s voice.

Speaking of Persona 5, I have a feeling that Futaba would definitely be one of the many players for Age of Adventurers.

I’m getting MAJOR Sword Art Online vibes here

That’s pretty much Maker’s Game in a nutshell.

SAO + Gender-Bending

Sword Art Online wasn’t the first go into that genre. It is just the one a ton of people know.

I don’t think you can really say this comic feels like SAO when Sam had never seen SAO before creating Maker’s Game. You can’t copy the vibes of a show you’ve never seen before, and if the two works are similar then that’s just a coincidence.

Plus, like Darththeo pointed out, SAO is just the most popular example of that genre, but it’s not the first nor the best. Works like Tron and .hack did that same story as SAO first. It could just be that stories about people being trapped inside of a video game all start out the same way, and then diverge after the first act when the ground rules of the game have been set and the stakes are finally raised.

So don’t blame the comic for feeling like another work, when that’s a very common thing within Maker’s Game’s genre.

Ah, right. Forgot that Tron was a thing, and honestly, I have no idea what .hack is.
