This series really is a perfect example of a well-done slice of life anime. No stress, just cute girls doing what they do.

Synopsis

(This is the 2nd Season of NEW GAME! It was announced at the fan event "NEW GAME! Fan Kansha Event ~Next Level~" More details will be coming soon!)

After graduating from high school, Aoba Suzukaze starts her career at Eagle Jump, a gaming company. Surrounded by her kind seniors in the graphics team, including her boss, who made the game that Aoba has adored since she was little, Aoba takes her first steps into becoming a fully-fledged member of society.

Three Episode Impression

For those of you who love adorable moe girls and slice of life, New Game!! is back this season! While the plot technically centers around the making of video games, we all know the true purpose of this show is to follow Aoba and her friends in their adventures in the video game creating world. The slice of life feel is similar to Centaur no Nayami and Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon, although it does has a similar feel to Shirobako. In the new season, Aoba is trying her hardest to advance her career in the character design route, but there seems to be more drama this season as she challenges Kou. Strangely enough, this anime is getting a bit more tense while paths cross and Aoba is trying to figure out her place in this video game company. New Game!! Is somehow maintaining its slice of life feel, but it’s taking on a little bit of tension to make this season all the more real.
