The year is 1996, and second-year high school students Haruo Yaguchi, Akira Oono, and Koharu Hidaka live their lives as passionately about video games as they were five years ago. Brought together by arcade games, what began as a healthy rivalry and friendship has turned into something more. As they endeavour towards understanding their unfamiliar feelings, they work with allies, navigate high school, and find that, although life has its many challenges, there's always a game or two they can rely on.

High Score Girl II (2019)

Well, what can be said about this but it for me is a 10/10.

The show picks up right after the 'Extra Stage' and the story is just spectacular. It may not seem so since it is about video gaming in one sense. But this is really just a sideline matter since it really is a coming of age romance.

You know I would've at least liked some upgraded aesthetics and not an awkward length of 9 episodes, J.C. Staff, but hey, beggars can't be choosers.


Acting as a follow-up to Season 1 (and the three OVA episodes I think are actually important), High Score Girl II acts as the finale arc to the story of Yaguchi Haruo and his unconditional love for fighting games.  Now starting their first year of high school, things like growing up and past rivalries flare up in this era of adolescence in order to finally put a cap on his long-standing rivalry with the girl that he's known from his ...

The writing and animation completely killed the show. Basically every chance they get, ie characters turning around or even the slightest zoomout, it looks like Berserk 2016 lite. When it comes to the writing, the emphasis on the "gamer" mentality kills it. The scene after Akina's first match in the tourny is especially abysmal, it effectively makes me ashamed to play video games. They haven't experienced enough character development considering it's been around 6 years in the show. The two main characters behave like they're 6 year olds with severe adhd. Even in the final episode, where Harou is spurred into action, it looks absolutely ...
