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 incites 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.

I watched Gamers. Here are my thoughts:

Gamers has a serious branding issue, in the sense that the content doesn't match its marketing. This show is like 90% relationship drama, and gaming hobbies are just an excuse to facilitate that. If you go into this expecting gaming-related content, you will be disappointed. On the other hand, if you like highschool romance and relationship drama, you may be pleasantly surprised by this show. I, very selectively, can enjoy these things, and so my initial pessimism about this anime was pleasantly defied. However, people looking for a show about the gaming hobby will likely have the opposite viewing ...

Mixed Feelings
Gamers! left me feeling mixed enough to write my second MAL review on an anime, so that's something.

~~The TL;DR of this review is basically: it's fine, and enjoyable enough, and from where I'm at in the LN it's probably worth an 8 out of 10 or so - *if you watch it with the intention/understanding that you'll need to read the LN to finish the story*. Without including the LN, I'm giving it a 6.~~

As a pretty hardcore gamer myself, and a fan of slice of life, romcom, and all that good stuff, Gamers! is one that I had to check out at some point. ...

I wanted to like this anime because I enjoy watching it talking about games, people passionnate about games and the different playstyles (especially the last episode even though debating about the usefulness of a hobby isn't the right question) but the rest is awful.
At first the misunderstandings were a little funny but as the anime story is only misunderstandings between e-ve-ry character it gets annoying very quickly and makes the story very plain and predictable. Add to this an intrusive little sister, a rushed ending, plain romance, lots of plain characters, poor animation, lots of coincidences (only to create more misunderstandings of course) and you ...
