High Score Girl

Preview
TBA

Synopsis

The year is 1991 and 6th grader Yaguchi Haruo only has video games to live for. He's not popular in school and he's neither handsome, funny, nice nor even friendly. The only thing he has going for him is that he is good at video games. One day at the local arcade, he plays Oono Akira, a fellow classmate but who's popular, smart, pretty and a rich girl that absolutely destroys him at Street Fighter II. Not only does he lose to her 30 times in a row, he can’t beat her at any game. Haruo can’t seem to shake Akira off as she follows him from arcade to arcade everyday after school and beats him every time. As weird as it sounds, the odd couple begins a strange bond and friendship.

Romance and seinen? And video games?

I'm down.

I'd heard about that previously. I was surprised this was getting an adaptation considering all that.

I'm genuinely glad this is getting an anime adaptation. The manga isn't that popular but the characters are written cleverly with a fun gimmick and has a story that is quite entertaining and fresh.

I hope it won't be short though.

That sounds like an interesting premise there, a girl who is wiping the floor clean in video games in spite of everything else when the MC only has his games. But I'm not getting my hopes high on this after recent news.

Case settled.

Hopefully the anime will soon be launched since its original announcement!

6th grade protagonist. Seinen. This should be fun.

Is it just me, or are there a lot more anime about video games lately?
