Synopsis

Keita Amano is a typical high school gamer living out an average student's life. One day, however, he has an unexpected meeting with the cutest girl in school that makes him want to disappear without a trace!

This girl, Karen Tendou, is an exemplary student who is proclaimed to be the school's idol. She discovers that Amano is a gamer, and this newfound knowledge a passionate desire within her to recruit him into the game club. Upon visiting the club, Amano is forcefully made aware of a side to gaming wildly different than the one he loves so dearly.

Tendou's interest in Amano begins shaking up what was once an uneventful life, filling it with spontaneity, awkwardness, and a little bit of mayhem. As a result, every day becomes a comical battle for Amano's sanity as he tries to adapt to these wild, unexpected changes.

Yeah ! Another adaptation of light novel about a rom-com focused on otaku high school students who like to play video games. It is true that we didn't have enough similar animes and studio Pine Jam was kind enough to realize it. A big thank-you.

Gamers! is your seasonal generic anime and my expectations weren't high but it is not even satisfying because it tries to be funny by repeating gags based on misunderstandings all along the anime till this concept is exhausted.

Gamers. An anime that perfectly showed us how teens behave in real life. Games, the concept of love and the like are all things we go through in real life and Gamers excels in it's faithful representation of that. Simply put, it's *damn* relatable.

Story: 8/10

The story is less about Gamers and more about how teens live their daily life along with the everyday shenanigans involved. It as mentioned before was very relatable and was fun to watch. The plot moved on slowly and smoothly and I enjoyed the pace it went at as it didn't feel rushed at all. It didn't have any particular 'arcs' read more

Gamers is honestly a show that made me scratch my head more than I realized. As a gamer myself, this anime really feels relatable at heart on occasions because of its concepts. However, what really follows is a rough adaptation that translated into a questionable story. It ended up being an anime that I can’t fully say it’s appreciable for what it had to offer. And that’s too bad really.

Based on the light novel of the same name, Gamers stood out as an anime at first for me just by its title and it seemed like a show that I felt comfortable with. However, what read more

What is the meaning of gamer? If we go to our favorite culture dictionary, we will consider a gamer someone that plays video-games. Is it the main topic of this anime? Sadly, it isn't. The video-game idea is irrelevant here unless that we associate the game concept with a relationship. In that case, we can say that the plot of this anime is a relationship game and a "gamer" interprets, acts, and plays on that relationship game. The goal of the game could be ending with someone, maybe love, etc.

I can give several convenient titles for this anime, "Misunderstandings," "The mess," "Mistakes," "Misconceptions." All read more
