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.

Mixed Feelings
I would make a joke about this show as the opening of my review but it seems the 9 episode runtime of this season of High Score Girl is enough of a joke. High Score Girl 2 is the hyped(?) second season to the sleeper hit first season anime that mixed video games and romance in a way that felt new and fresh... well at least enough to make an enjoyable binge. Did the second season live up to the bar that High Score Girl 1 set or did this fun little gamer romance run out of lives?

The positive parts of this new season ...

High Score Girl II is the second season of the romantic comedy and 90s nostalgia anime that follows the rivalry and romance between the gamer Haruo and the girls Oono and Hidaka. However, this season disappoints by becoming a cliché and boring harem, in which the two girls run after Haruo and he pretends to be clueless and innocent. The plot does not progress, the characters do not evolve and the jokes are repeated. It does not seem to be an anime aimed at an adult audience (Seinen), but rather at a teenager who likes to see girls fighting for a boy. The only thing ...
