Good news has come in for fans of the New Game anime adaptation as a second season has been announced for it during a new fan event today. The first season ran as part of the summer 2016 season and an OVA is coming out later this month as a bonus for those that purchased all the DVD or Blu-ray releases. No details about the second season were revealed at the event and information will be coming out later.
The first season was directed by Yoshiyuki Fujiwara based on the series composition from Fumihiko Shimo. Ai Kikuchi worked on the character designs and was animated at Doga Kobo.
The Japanese 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.
