The first official trailer for New Game!, an upcoming comedy TV anime based on the 4-panel manga of the same name by Shōtarō Tokunō, is now available online. The series follows Aoba Suzukaze, a young woman who goes to work for Eagle Jump, the developers of her favorite video game.
In the trailer, Aoba's co-workers mistake her for a child and also for the new assistant director. The video concludes with the phrase: "Working is tough. Working is fun. Working is youth."
The original New Game! manga is serialized in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Carat seinen manga anthology magazine. The New Game! TV anime is directed by Yoshiyuki Fujiwara and features animation by Doga Kobo. New Game! will begin its Japanese broadcast in July of 2016.
