It's also a anime that show how incredeble are be a gamer, but in this case, it' s a anime more nostalgic, because the main characters are young, and this anime for me, made I remenber a bunch of my past, the beginning of my gamer life, really recommend.

They both have romance, action, plenty of fighting and competition, and yet they BOTH lack the SAUCE, expect to see zero physical affection in these anime.

In both shows you will see the relationship between a mysterious girl and a normal guy trying to surpass her skills. Similar humor style.

Both shows focus heavily on Arcades. High Score Girl however has a more friendly competive vibe to it with some romance and even some random facts on certain arcade games.

Two coming of age/romance animes that evoke a similar feeling of nostalgia in the viewer. Both talks about first love, have their nice share of comedy, and have a nice pacing. If you want someting in these lines, these two are a nice go.

If you liked Yahari you will probably like High Score Girl because in both shows - There are similar main characters who both start off kind of self centered. - Main character accompanied by 2 female characters where in the end you as a viewer might have hard time to choose which one to support more. - Stories in both shows are decent and worth watching. Yahari has more school setting than High Score Girl since people hang out in arcades as well. - Both have romcom and school elements in it. I would recommend this for the similar vibe they share, if you liked one, check  read more

You may notice that Akira Oono and Wakaba Himeji look very similar to one another. Both are the work of Rensuke Oshikiri.

These two anime are both very drama, slice-of-life, comedy oriented, however, both have adorable and dynamic romances and have moments that tug at your heartstrings.

Games. Bottom-Tier and High Score Girl follow the relationship between two outstanding gaming individuals who cross paths by, none other than, games. The two pairs also have this strange split between personality with both Haruo and Tomozaki being that average person combined with their female counterparts who are on the elite side of the spectrum relative to the settings provided. High Score Girl is based on a younger sixth-grade relationship as opposed to a high school one given in Bottom-Tier. Also, High Score Girl's relationship starts out bumpy only going on the uphill road thereafter. Bottom-Tier is different from it being on this new idea of  read more

Both anime have a relationship between the two protagonists in each respective show. Wotakoi and High Score Girl has relationships between characters in which they spend time in doing what their common interests are. Also both Hirotaka and Haruo are both into games and they spend time with their other, playing games together.

Hi Score Girl season two does a great job picking up where season one left off

Clannad is similar to Hi Score Girl because they both have a sort of love triangle. two or more characters like one character and they are both shoujo animes. Very heart felt and very good, recommend 100%!

In both series, video games are an important part of the story. There are also many references to real games. 
report Recommended by EonRed
Very similar concept and plot: three characters interested in one thing forming love triangle in the process. WA2 is about music, while HSG (I'm taking the whole series, meaning I + Extra Stage + II) is focused on arcade gaming.

Both are made by the same studio, they both share the same CGI animation, and both are romances. Any fan of High Score Girl will enjoy Duke of Death as well.

Same premise, a romcom with the main heroine who is mute, but gets along with the protagonist.

if ur not a harem fan then you have come to the right place. high score girl is about a loner kid who only wants to go to the arcade until he gets beat by a GIRL and the love story over video games begins there

If you've had the chance to watch Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo and enjoyed your experience, High Score Girl is definitely an anime you cant go wrong with. CAUTION, your heart strings will but tugged on, over and over again.

They both make you laugh sometimes and their both an anime about something?

- Both have Junior School Romance - Old Childhood - Most romantic in episode - Maybe netorare xD

These two are not from the same era, and they have very different genres and topics. But both are about a young boy meeting a mysterious girl, being annoyed at first, but also a little fascinated, and then having their relationship slowly evolve. There are also some similarities in the comedy, which relies a lot on the fact that the girl has the upper hand in their love-hate relationship.

Both incorporate - many game references - gaming eastereggs - and jokes about said games Falcom Gakuen is absurd slapstic comedy about Falcom games (Ys, Legend of Heroes, Xanadu) in a fictional world, Hi Score Girl is taking place in a realistic 80s setting but has a lot of direct and well informed game related humor (Street Fighter, Double Dragon, Final Fight... and tons more). If you're into Japanese games, especially in the retro territory, both are very recommendable.

Both are romantic comedies with love triangles that focus on and explain the history of certain niche interests.

Watching High Score Girl third episode made me think about Koe no Katachi and it is because of the 2 characters: - We get this relationship where the girl can not talk but the guy understands her. The girl doesn't use her voice - they use other "language" instead. Sign language or via playing games. - Also in the beginning the main guy dislikes her, but a lot changes. - The main characters also feel similar. Other than that, the themes are different but both have beautiful stories of a developing relationship. You should definitely check out High Score girl if you liked Koe no Katachi  read more

Both are comedy anime involving so many games references and airing in Summer 2018. High score girl mc is playing and referencing so many old arcade and old console games, mainly Street Fighter series. While Chio chan mc is playing and referencing so many newer pc games, such as Assasin Creed, Fallout, PUBG, etc. High score girl contains many fluffy romantic moments, while chio chan contains so many over the top wacky scenes

- Young protagonists - the MC doesn't recognize his feelings for the girl and sees her as an "opponent" to compete against at first - both shows have comedic elements - both shows depict very cute, innocent, wholesome romances with a similar feel

Minus the gaming element in the story which is more than apparent in High Score Girl, the relationship between its characters feels oddly similar. Love triangles are not a rare sight in anime but how it develops its characters, these 2 anime series have it the same way.

Both have timid but realistic main character that fall in love with a girl that seems to be way out of they league, in both you see support character trying to steam up the romance because in booth animes the couples are too timid, the main women of both animes haves strong motives to be timid, i also in both animes you see time passing, i give a 10/10 for both.

They both show how the players grow, and the value of the game for them changes. Shows what they gain and what they lose, when the game affects their lives.

The every day life of younglings falling in love but is of different kind/status. Truth be told they feel very similar even though the settings are very different. At the core they grab you and drag you along a journey of something that should be slow and boring but refuses to let you go and clings to you untill the end.

-The plot involves characters socializing through video games -A guy surrounded by girls -Very comedic  
report Recommended by RodTheDigger
Both shows explore different aspects of games that arent commonly talked about nowadays (board games and arcade games) while also underlyingly following the development of the main character's, as they interact with others who share the same interest  
report Recommended by Short_Circut
In both of them tells about a narrow subject, they can see how each of the characters relates to this. Their themes are that they are no longer at the peak of popularity, which is why it causes some sadness and nostalgia. Also, they are made in simple graphics with specific features.
