Game developer Compile Heart announced that this year's Dengeki Game Fes that its Choujigen Game Neptune series will receive a new original animation titled Choujigen Game Neptune The Animation: Nepu no Natsuyasumi. Director Masahiro Mukai (Trickster: Edogawa Ranpo "Shounen Tanteidan" yori) and scriptwriter Shougo Yasukawa (Mitsuboshi Colors) will reprise their roles and produce the series at Okuru to Noboru.

Idea Factory first released Choujigen Game Neptune in August 2010 as a PlayStation 3 exclusive that was then ported on PlayStation Vita under the name Choujigen Game Neptune Re;Birth 1. Two sequels, Choujigen Game Neptune mk2 and Choujigen Game Neptune Victory were released in August 2011 and August 2012, respectively and also received Vita ports. The latest installment of the main series, Shinjigen Game Neptune Victory II, was released on PlayStation 4 in April 2015.

A 12-episode TV anime was broadcast in Summer 2013 by David Production and a simulcast was provided by Funimation. An OVA which served as episode 13 was bundled with the anime's seventh BD/DVD disc.

I better watch the anime adaptation before this one. Only played a bit of one of the games (still need to catch up).

Wonder what they're going to do with this... Pretty out of nowhere considering there hasn't been a new game in a while. Hoping it isn't filled with references to the spin off games.

Unexpected, but a much welcome one.

Nep's Summer Vacation. "Could this be a fanservice episode!?"

Only thing I don't like is that they are making Neptune older....kinda throws out the whole "CPU can't age" right out the window. But hey I get to see more Blanc and Compa, so I'm happy.


It's mostly said during that trailer, but that's a different Neptune.
It's playing on the alternate dimension concept previously shown.

Wow, this came out of nowhere. More Nep is always welcome but I thought the franchise died because IF and Compa never look back at the main storyline after VII and always playing around with spin-offs. I myself hadn't touch the games for ages even tho I was pretty into it when they first arrived to Steam. I hope this means we can get a real sequel to the game and a 2nd season for anime if possible.

I hope this will be better than first one. Nep games are real meme mines, good adaptation could be a hit.

Yess! More Neptune content is always good. Please give me more Noire. XD
I still need to watch the first anime though. xD


If you have played the games (Rebirth 1 to 3), than the first anime is pretty enjoyable in my opinion, since it covers those 3 games.

I haven't gotten through Rebirth 3 yet so I guess I'll hold off watching this until I beat that.

Oh man! More Nep? Nice! ;P

Is that dope HDD attire a new original design? I've never seen her wearing that in any of the games or anime series.

"That is cool" is a pretty lolworthy tagline though.

I would say give us a second season but considering the first anime did the first 3 main games, I don't see what they could adapt.


There’s tons of games they can adapt
They only covered the re birth series


first they covered the main line. the rebirth series are remakes and ports.

second all the other games are spin off and not part of the main story line. They could adapt them but alot of them wouldn't fit into the universe that was set in the first anime.

The only main line game they haven't adapted is vii
