About this Anime:

It's summer in Japan. Kenji just missed out on his chance to compete as Japan's representative at the Math Olympics, so now he's spending his summer working as a system maintainer in the popular online world of OZ. Nothing out of the ordinary — that is, until the lovely Natsuki whisks him away to her family home in Ueda to pose as her boyfriend at her powerful great grandmother's 90th birthday gathering.

Sounds like a dream come true for any socially awkward teenage nerd, doesn't it? Too bad someone had to pick that time to hack OZ and start creating global chaos.
