New Game! Appreciation Thread
« on: 2016-09-06 23:57:33 »
I think New Game! is easily one of the most rateable workplace anime I've ever seen, on top of being great in general. So in honor of that, I've started this thread to spam some of my favorite moments from the show as it nears its final episode.

Can we also take a second to appreciate episode 10's introduction to Hifumi's imagined "mean version" of Aoba? It is now and forever the definitive best version; no take-backs.

IKR? it's great. And it's not just me... there's an officially-licensed hug pillow of it now.

But yeah, probably the best workplace anime I've ever seen. Highly recommend.

Don't mind me, just spaming~

I think these are both good wallpaper images, though.

Here's a cool article examining how realistic New Game's depiction of the Japanese video game industry is. Spoilers: actually it's pretty realistic.

Also, that last episode gave me so many feels... I want a kouhai like Aoba some day ;__;

Thanks for posting that article. It's cool that the show is so realistic, except for a few glossed-over areas (like how they're all cute girls and everyone's nice to each other T-T ) It makes me want to work in the Japanese game industry! Maybe I can translate a game someday...

Also when I get the chance I'll post a pic of the New Game PS Vita game promotional flyer I got at Comiket 90; it's hanging up as a poster on my wall.
