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.
Like the series, the art, music, opening and closing are the same. Though I do feel Oono has gotten even more expressive.
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.

“High Score Girl: Extra Stage” is the sequel to the TV Anime “High Score Girl”. It chronicles the life of gamer Yaguchi Haruo growing up as a teenager in the mid to early 90s.

Story: 7/10

The story in itself isn’t anything too special in these three episodes. It wraps up the loose ends that were left behind by the initial 12 episodes. This includes Yaguchi’s final duel with Hidaka and the ever increasing strictness in Ono’s home life. It can get pretty cheesy at times but there’s some charm to it that will keep you interested.

Art: 8/10

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 read more

This sequel doesn't accomplish much. Unless being momentarily annoying is considered an accomplishment.

Mrs. mute is still mute and mr. dense so dense they could have as well named the specials 'Extra Dense'. Kohara, the 2nd harem option is still the only person who feels even slightly human. But even her purpose in these specials seems to be hitting mr. dense and make him atone physical pain. This scene is, by the way, followed by bunch of side character dudes also hitting mr. dense because apparently, if girl hits a man, it's the man's fault and other men should also start punching him. I am not read more
