A second season for High Score Girl TV anime was announced during the Extra Stage OVA screening event on Thursday. Titled High Score Girl II, the anime is slated for this fall. The staff and cast members will reprise their roles.

Rensuke Oshikiri penned High Score Girl in Big Gangan from October 2010 to September 2018, compiling it in ten volumes. The manga entered hiatus when it received a copyright violation for featuring characters from games without permission, which also delayed its anime adaptation that was initially announced in December 2013. The TV anime aired last summer and the three-episode Extra Stage was released as a separate volume and via Netflix on March 20.

Super glad to see the High Score Girl franchise getting this well deserved Season 2 and hopefully it’ll go on to adapt the whole manga!

Great teaser video, with that glorious soundtrack, to hype things up a bit!
Looks like we’ll be seeing a few new characters and perhaps a different side of Oono too! Can’t wait!

Fall Season is going to be a dime with this, Chihayafuru 3 and Vinland Saga, lads!

Great news, enjoying the first season right now.

Surprised by this, since the manga has ended now (which was still ongoing when the first season was airing), and an anime is usually made to promote the ongoing source material, but this looks like it's going to be a complete adaptation.

I know right, I was afraid we wouldn’t get this Season 2 for the exact same reason, but here it is! Wonderful surprise!

Well, this is an anime done by Netflix, and I supose they don't work that way, since they've no relation with manga/light novel publishers.

It wasn't done/ paid for by netflix, it was licensed by netflix, which is different.

So it's a complete adaptation, I thought the OVA completes the story. Very excited for the sequel though. I see new characters, is that grown-up Akira?

Easily the most underappreciated anime of 2018.

Really happy to see it getting the most likely full adaptation treatment !

Good news, this was a dark horse from Summer 2018 as it was a really lackluster season imo.

Hopefully it catches up to the manga with the adaptation. Looking forward!

Would probably pick the second season up aswell. It was an ok anime. Not bad for being a triangle romcom, but not great iether.

Anime was indeed a mistake, since we prefer 2D waifu's over 3D wamen.

Didn't really expect this to happen. But when Baki and HSG are both receiving second seasons then I guess you have no right to complain about the death of anime.

Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

I live to see the day where Hidamari Sketch or Little Witch Academia get another season.

Manga usually has more game and hardware info not fitting in the TV adaptation but sometimes it gets too descriptive and encyclopaedic. As a video game enthusiast I was aware of those games anyway. Anime has better balance and is as enjoyable.

Ah, then I might give the manga a read once all of its chapters get translated.

Even though I wasn't as crazy about it on my second viewing, I'm still pretty excited about this; it's a cute smol romcom and though the love triangle is a little much it didn't ruin it for me.

Even if i usually hate CGI this anime was a gem and also the manga. So many retro feels! Happy that they are making second season.

If you haven't seen it, you are missing out.

I wonder if they cover last chapters as well?

I'm so happy for this! This show was so good and probably one of the more underrated shows from last year from what I've watched. Also I need to binge it so. ;;
