‘What’s a polygon? Can you eat it?’ The arrival of the heyday of good old-fashioned 2D games was 1991.
In a corner of an arcade rampant with salarymen, delinquents, and otaku, she sat there quietly and coolly. This 90’s arcade romcom is told through the eyes of the main character, Haruo!
Three Episode Impression
The series is more or less an homage to everything classic games. It’s very old and it knows it. We hear about consoles that existed around the time that classic sega consoles and the NES existed. It’s pretty cool, but unless you know about retro games, you are going to be lost fast. The story is overall cute, but… how do we say it? It’s not really anything that will draw you in. Rather, what may keep your attention is Haruto’s countless expositions about old games and consoles and the fact that this is very well-done 3DCG art. At this point, we may watch another episode, but it really depends on what else we watch. If we are dropping shows left and right, maybe this is one to keep. If we are not, we may find ourselves struggling to keep up with High Score Girl.
