The Aniplex Online Fest 2022 event announced on Saturday a television anime adaptation of Mashiro's Yamada-kun to Lv999 no Koi wo Suru (Loving Yamada at Lv999) manga and revealed the main cast, staff, teaser visual (pictured), and teaser promotional video. The anime is scheduled to premiere in 2023.
Mashiro began serializing the romantic comedy manga in the Ganma! manga website in March 2019. Media Factory published the fifth volume on April 22. The Mangamo application is publishing the series in English digitally.
After her boyfriend cheats on her with another girl he met in-game, Akane Kinoshita learns the hard way that gamer boyfriends can be just as bad as the offline variety. As she vents her anger by beating mob monsters to a pulp, she has a chance encounter with Akito Yamada, a guildmate with an afro and Noh mask.
Yamada is unsociable and curt, hardly the type of person to make Akane swoon. However, while his gaming stats might be maxed out, Yamada is inexperienced in matters of the heart, and against all odds, she finds herself moved by him. Making new friends along the way, can Akane shake the heart of Yamada, a final boss-level high school boy? [Written by MAL Rewrite]
