The December issue of Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Charat magazine will be announcing on Wednesday that a television anime adaptation of Shoutarou Tokunou’s New Game! manga has been green-lit. 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.

New Game! synopsis 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.
