Four years after they first met, Haruo Yaguchi , Akira Oono, and Koharu Hidaka remain the best of friends. Tensions start to build up as Akira's teacher, Gouda Moemi, becomes stricter than ever before, and Hidaka develops feelings for Haruo. Though he may not be the most composed and thoughtful person around, he has within him the one thing that started it all: his unconditional love for video games.

Following straight after the final episode of the series, these three OVA are in no rush to complete the story, which is surprisingly a good thing.
We get new interesting characters introduced, development for the existing characters and the story continues at a steady pace that makes you want more.

If you loved the series, you will love the extra episodes too, they are just as great.
What more is there to say, except here's hoping we get more High Score Girl in the future.

Sometimes an OVA is considered a filler and the place for the discarded episodes. In this case, it is different. The Extra episodes of High Score Girl are a prelude of what we're going to watch in the second season. YES, a second season that was already announced.

The episodes continue with the same structure from the main series. As a significant development, we can appreciate Yaguchi and Hidaka's fight and their perseverance towards their feelings. Furthermore, the relationships are not dull or repulsive even if some persons think they are a cliché. The series continues following the main idea from the main series, the ...
