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.

The show has Haruo and Akira going through what can be only seen as the pivotal moment in their lives. They live in completely different worlds with the responsibility she holds and his immaturity. They go through some pretty intense situations read more

The high hats of the journeys of both Haruo Yaguchi and Akira Oono in Season 1, now include love-game rival Koharu Hidaka, that have been riled up in the Extra Stage moments, that all in all, have descended onto the continuation that is Season 2. Going through their torment of first-year high school which has concluded most of their misunderstandings and such in Season 1, here they are in the mid-90s 32-bit console era (of the PlayStation and Saturn), where the stakes have went higher, both in game and in real life. As both Oono and Hidaka fight it out for the right to be read more

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 read more

Simply put, this anime is 'surprisingly' well made. It's not plot twist, but a great turn of events and character development.
I finished watching this and I can say that this anime is worth watching, 10/10
It caught me by surprise by reading the synopsis. I thought it's kinda like Karakai Jouzo no Takagi-san, Uzaki-chan wa asobitai, or other fun and chill anime.

It is fun. Then, there's drama, romance, and a mix of everything along with its childish animation. When I checked the genre, it has "romance", and "seinen". So now it all makes sense :)

I recommend to watch this. I got immersed in the anime that read more
