Second ‘New Game’ Anime Season Reveals Final DVD/BD Release Artwork

3 min read

New GameMedia Factory is handling the home video release of the summer 2017 anime series New Game and has set the release schedule for it. The fifth volume came out on January 24th, 2018 and we’re doing a bit of catch-up with the larger sized artwork now available for it. The twelve episode series is getting a six-volume release that began on September 27th, 2016. With all volumes listed as limited editions, the DVDs are priced at 6,000 yen while the Blu-ray’s are priced at 7,000 yen.

The show set Yoshiyuki Fujiwara to direct based on the 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.
