This episode has pretty strong hints that Pitohui's player is that idol Karen likes. Kind of makes me wonder who M's player is and how he knows her IRL...

There are a number of hints, but Karen writing the fan letter definitely serves as a big dramatic hint that that's probably the case, for those who recognize such things.

Looking at the credits, yes

Incidentally, he looks like this in RL:


This not so subtle self-insert is in the novels too.

I'm glad they did eps 1-3 in such a way that you could watch them in order 2-3-1 and it would feel natural. Anyway, back to the Squad Jam battles next week

Never read the original and its adaptations before, but as soon as Pito goes on about the novelist gun nut I somehow knew that it was a blatant Sigsawa ref, and boy do they go far with that to the end

Also, that fan letter is such a mcguffin already isn't it?

I also instantly recognize the author lol

As for height even as a guy, bring too tall is very standout in society where average male is around 165-170 ( A girl with 180+ obviously even more standout )
girl I know don't like bring call shorty and bring too tall isn't her preference either

I think, it was just a self-irony. Don't take such things to seriously.

...When someone is called "M" in Japan, it most often refers to the "M" in "S&M" you know...

Combining all the Ms' brought up'so far, I conclude M's real life profile as a masochistic midget manager!

Jokes aside, holy shit M was intense before but the calm demeanor he carried even when teaching LLENN how to use the knife was pretty scary. Even in VR stabbing another player in the eye or throat seems pretty hardcore.

LLENN is perfect loveable hypocrite

Before: "So you can use leader as bait to ambush enemies, hehe hehe.
After: I am supposed be leader! Why I the hell I am used as bait?! That's not fair

Edit: So Kanzaki Elsa is Yoko Hikasa, huh. Well at least Pitohui being Elsa is more then mere speculation now.

I just have one question.

Why is LLENN holding a frying pan in the thumbnail?

Some people take these things seriously and don't hold back. Just in the first episode, there was someone willing to use another player's body as a shield. M is clearly a person that doesn't mess around when it comes to their gaming experience.

I wanna think that Pitohui is Elsa as well. It would just make a very nice coincidence that she would've have been able to participate on Squad Jam's first day due to her concert taking place at the same time as that. And their voice actors being the same is pretty convenient.
