Rin Kokuyo launched Recovery of an MMO Junkie in October 2013, but the manga has been on hiatus since July 2015 due to an undisclosed health issue. Despite the hiatus, Recovery of an MMO Junkie proved popular enough to receive a 10-episode anime adaptation in October 2017.
Recovery of an MMO Junkie follows Moriko Morioka, a 30-year-old woman who quits her job and dating to escape into the world of MMOs. She begins her virtual life as a male avatar and quickly falls in love with a female avatar. Unknown to Moriko, the gamer she has feelings for is closer in real life than she can imagine.
