Kadokawa is handling promotion for the summer 2016 anime series New Game and ahead of the September 6th debut of the tenth episode they’ve now brought out a quick teaser for it to get fans excited. The series is being simulcast by Crunchyroll.
The series has set Yoshiyuki Fujiwara to direct based on series composition from Fumihiko Shimo. Ai Kikuchi is on board for character designs and it’ll be animated at Doga Kobo.
The cast includes Yuuki Takada as Aoba Suzukaze, Megumi Yamaguchi as Hifumi Takimoto, Megumi Toda as Hajime Shinoda, Ayumi Takeo as Yun Iijima, Yoko Hikasa as Kou Yagami, Ai Kayano as Rin Tooyama, Eri Kitamura as Shizuku Hazuki, Chitose Morinaga as Umiko Ahagon an Madoka Asahina as Nene Sakura.
The opening theme is “Sakura Skip” by fourfolium while the ending theme is “Now Loading!!!!”, also by fourfolium.
The manga comes from creator Shoutarou Tokunou which began back in the winter 2013 season. There are two compiled volumes of the manga released so far. Tokunou has several works under his belt so far so this is not the first. The magazine is certainly home to familiar properties adapted into anime form such as Hidamari Sketch, Kill Me Baby and A-Channel.
Plot concept: Follow Aoba Suzukaze, a fresh high school graduate that is easily mistaken as a middle school student, as she joins the game company that produced her favorite game as a 3D artist.
