NCG watches Gamers!

Anime is always out to touch the heart of a gamer.  We saw Sword Art Online, No Game No Life (just to name the big titles), and now we have Gamers!

We meet Keita Amano, an plain high school student who loves games. While he’s picking out a few games from the game store, he runs into one of the prettiest girls in school, Karen Tendou.  Not only is she talking to him, but she invites him to join the Gaming Club! Despite wanting to live a “refreshing high school life” making new friends, Amano rejects her offer.

The story touches on the concept of competitive gaming VS casual gaming and what games mean to different people.  We meet all sorts of arch-type gamers so gamers out in the real world can find a character they can easily relate too whether you’re the hardcore competitive gamer, closet gamer, the friend that always has a different opinion, or a casual gamer who plays everything.

There are an abundant amount of game references and in-show game play, which makes the series fun to watch.  Gamers! is a light series to pick up; it won’t leave you at the edge of your couch at the end of every episode. It follows basic slice-of-life, romance, shounen plots but it’s a good watch to pass the time.

Gamers! can be found with English dub on Funimation, or with subtitles on Crunchyroll.
