    My Little Gamer: Moe is Magic? (Edited!)
    Although this series does succumb to some moe moe cliches, I'm pleased to say that my initial impressions to this anime were actually a little off, as this series DOES in fact show some real insights into the gaming industry.

    The title of this review is pretty much how I feel about this series so far. You've got kawaii kawaii desu sugoi moe humor and some real attempts at showing friendships ...

    Wow like adults and everthing
    Its a real nice change of pace from the usual High School drama. Of course, if anyone has ever worked at a job they know how much drama can be found at one's workplace. So if you're tired of the same high schoolers , dealing with clubs, wondering if it will survive another year and the festival at the end, this is the anime for you.

    When you need a special kind of cute
    No real angst. No evil plots. Just cute likable characters working together. But sometimes, that can be the most relaxing kind of show to watch. The kind that makes you feel good the entire time you're watching it. That's what this is. It's comfort food anime.

    Whistle While You Work!
    Great fun as Aoba Suzukaze, fresh out of high school, begins work at her dream job at gaming company Eagle Jump. And as luck (or anime) would have it, she ends up working on the third installment of her own favorite game, under the supervision of the original character designer! Now, we can already tell that this will be no SHIROBAKO; I'm not actually anticipating learning much about how ...

    It's anime girls making a video game.
    This anime so far seems to be your standard 'slice of life with anime girls' affair. The gimmick seems to be that the girls are developers in a video game company.

    It's about a young tropey anime girl who acquires a job as a video game developer. All other employees at this game company also 'coincidently' happen to be a variety of tropey anime girls. The show then goes on to show us the daily ...

    "Moe anime" in the best possible form
    New Game! is a very cute, cheerful anime, that is thankfully not fully dependent on its good visuals and "moe" factor, but manages to deliver surprising amounts of substance. It shows an adult cast in a workplace (what is by itself unusual) and offers some pretty serious insights into the reality of game development industry, while still keeping the lighthearted, comedic formula. The ...

    New Game, Same Old Stereotypes
    Before you rule this anime out, don't. It's a good one and worth watching. It is fun, light, well made, and very adorable, as well as super relatable to anyone who works in the gaming industry like me. It just pisses me off that the fan service seems SO necessary everywhere, with the ridiculous poses and panty shots everywhere. Also another thing that bothered me is the company only hires women, ...

    Very intriguing and I think you would enjoy it.
    Everyone in this anime is basically girls making a video game. It's a cute style and the graphics are amazing, the storyline is pretty interesting for the main character (Aoba) since she just begun to work there as a new recruit. She's trying to make a game that she had loved since childhood. I recommend this game to anyone that loves cute anime girls.

    Loved this 2nd Season!
    New Game!! was a fun and enjoyable anime to watch. It's about Aoba and her coworkers working on a bear fantasy video game. A lot of new characters that werent on season 1 are introduced in this second season. These new characters were great and I was a fan. There were a lot of fun moments throughout that made me laugh but this anime also had a lot of sad moments and drama. This anime did a great ...

    Utterly enjoyable and Charming!
    I know it's too easy to be burned out on Moe anime...

    But this one has a different presentation to some 99+% Moe anime out there! It's Cute, yes but genuinely funny at times! The characters are enjoyable to see interact with each other and while a lot of the job situations are the same, If you know anything of the workings of the game industry you will find this so much more enjoyable.
