    New Game is Nothing New
    While this may be the worst possible way to start a review, New Game is a typical cute-girls-doing-cute-things anime. Most of their cliches aren't that new, either- you've got the loli, who is somehow eighteen, only compounding on the trope, then you have the sleepy person, the happy-go-lucky person and the person that keeps them on track (who has a gun for some reason?)... of course, they're in ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Very nice Adaptation
    A few minutes into the show i was expecting to see the classic Harem scenario develop. I was surprised when the characters all turned out to be women designing and working video games. It kind of reminded me of Shirobako or Worlds Greatest First Love in which you get an idea of how the Anime and Manga industries work. I'm wonder if they will develop that further here regarding the gaming ...

    Nice comedy story, could be good
    [Main review] Could be an amazing story with a really good plot, I like the character design of the characters and the fact that it doesn't have much in the way of story-line cliches even if it does have character cliches. I will be very interested in watching more in the future and seeing when they get super busy working on the game.

    [Idea for future] It would be really interesting also if at ...

    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 ...

    Press start to play!
    A typical office job story with a lovely, heart-warming twist. New Game! revolves around a passionate protagonist who deals with the struggles and excitement of landing a new job. There isn't anything quite extraordinary about New Game!, but it has a charm that will be sure to gather groupies and devoted fans. While you might be under the impression that the show is aimed toward a very young ...

    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.

    Cute slice of life. Not Shirobako.
    If you like this anime, it's for the slice of life pace, cute characters, and their development throughout the story. It isn't like Shirobako, where they showed the ins and outs of what goes into making an anime. It makes me happy, and I'm interested in clicking on the next episode link, so I give it 5 stars.

    SoL CGDCT about working in a gaming company.
    NEW GAME! is a slice of life, cute girls doing cute things about a all female team working in the character design team / motion team. This is one of the few animes that leaves me smiling the from start to finish, the Opening and Ending to the show is great. All the cast is great and each episode is equal to or better than the last. There is some yuri hints as well as showing of some "pantsu" but ...
