New Game! is an anime adaptation of a Japanese four-panel comedy manga by Shotaro Tokuno, which is being published in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Carat since January 2013 and currently has nine volumes.


Both first and second seasons were directed by Yoshiyuki Fujiwara, who previously worked on the sci-fi drama anime Plastic Memories, while Full Metal Panic! scriptwriter Fumihiko Shimo handled the series composition.

Ai Kikuchi, who also worked as the chief animation director of Plastic Memories, handled the character designs, which was produced by Doga Kobo.

The first season was aired on Japanese television during the Summer season from July to September 2016, while the second season was aired the following year.


Aside from the popular anime series, the manga also received a visual novel series, developed by 5pb. (now known as Mages), which was released in 2017 for the Japanese market.

The show’s characters are also appearing in the mobile role-playing game Kirara Fantasia, alongside other characters from Manga Time Kirara titles.
