Yesterday, the cast of last summer’s New Game! gathered at the New Game! Fan Thanks Event ~Next Level~ in Tokyo to make a special announcement. The show was officially confirmed for a second season, the news paired with the visual below.
It’s yet to be confirmed if any of the first season’s cast will reprise their roles, but that adorable image of Aoba seems as good a sign as any.
New Game! premiered in July, based on Shotaro Tokuno’s manga of the same name, and following the fun working days of the all-girl design staff at famed game company Eagle Jump. Crunchyroll streamed the 12-episode series as it aired in Japan. Tokuno’s 2013 manga is ongoing in Hobunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Charat magazine, and Hobunsha published the fifth volume in July.
We loved the first season, flawed as it was, so we can’t wait. What did you think of the show the first time around? If you’ll be logging in again, what are you hoping for from the second season?
