New Game! Anime Adaptation Announced – Cute Girls Making Games

The latest issue of Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine has revealed that a TV anime adaptation of Shoutarou Tokunou’s New Game! manga has been approved. The series itself features cute girls working in a video game company, in a similar fashion to Shirobako‘s depiction of working at an anime company.


New Game! is a 4koma manga written and illustrated by Shoutarou Tokunou. The series began in 2013 in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine, where a total of 2 volumes have been published. The series itself follows a female video game company.

Here is the synopsis of the series from MAL:

Follow Aoba Suzukaze, a fresh highschool graduate that is easily mistaken as a middle school student, as she joins the game company that produced her favorite game as a 3D artist and her cute antics in this story told through 4-koma.

A TV anime about cute girls making video games is currently being produced. Further information about New Game! will be revealed soon.
