Aoba Suzukaze is a high school graduate and an aspiring character designer. She joins the video game company Eagle Jump, known for the game that she profoundly loves—Fairies Story.

At Eagle Jump, Aoba is placed into a team of six, which includes the lead character designer for the original Fairies Story game, Kou Yagami. Getting mentored by her role model, Aoba strives to become a better character designer and learn the ropes of the video game industry.

New Game! revolves around the buoyant lives of Aoba and her team members. Together, the girls put their sweat and tears into the production of the new upcoming video game, Fairies Story 3—the third installment of the Fairies Story series.

An adorable story following a cast of women and their passion for video games and respecting and working together in the workplace
This manga has the usual little bit of fanservice (which is more than fine because for once the cast are all adults for once) and cute scenes between the cast, but it is more than what it looks like at first glance.

New Game touches on the difficulties and significance of compliance, sacrifices, independence, teamwork, competitiveness, strong will, inspiration, and encouragement in a creative workplace.

A phenomenal story about working towards your dreams, overcoming obstacles, achieving your dreams, then helping others do the same thing.

The character development in this is excellent; starting from such a small beginning, to ending; much larger, and greater of an impact. This is what people imagine working towards your dreams would be like.

The story itself is able to teach you lessons, while filling you with some funny, & wholesome moments... it's the ideal job experience that anyone would want. It's very unique in many regards, this manga will introduce things that wouldn't be expected from it's description.

Worth the read, would recommend it to anyone.

Mixed Feelings
I'm going to be honest, I've dropped this before. I only finished it after needing a palate cleanser from the last, way more dramatic manga I read.

It's not really a problem of course, you aren't reading this for the riveting plot, are you?

The author always makes sure to keep things in motion to prevent it becoming to static. For example, new characters are introduced every so often and the ...
