Madman Schedules Two-Season ‘New Game!’ Anime Blu-ray Collection Release

2 min read
18-year-old Aoba Suzukaze just landed her dream job at a video game company, but the real world of office culture is challenging for this total noob.

With the home video release out for both seasons of New Game! through Funimation as single-cour sets, they’ve got it coming out this summer in North America as a complete collection. Australian distributor Madman Entertainment, however, didn’t release the show in its single-cour sets and has now announced they’ll be doing the two-cour set. The new set is scheduled for an August 7th, 2019 release priced at $79.98, making it a steal compared to the single-season releases that we saw here. It’ll only be on Blu-ray and will have the full twenty-four episode run in bilingual release. There are eight minutes of extras made up of the clean opening and closings.

Check out our review of the first season and our review of the second season.

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: 18-year-old Aoba Suzukaze just landed her dream job at a video game company, but the real world of office culture is challenging for this total noob. From her awkward first day, to her first game’s debut-and even training the next new recruit-she’s got a lot of skills to level up. But with a little help from her coworkers, she can handle any raid boss in her way.
