Gamers!, based on a light novel by Sekina Aoi (known for Boku no Yuusha) that was serialized in Shounen Ace with illustrations by Tsubasa Takahashi, will be adapted into an anime. It is scheduled to start in Summer 2017.
The main character of the story is the lonely Keita Amano, who loves to play games. One day, the beauty of the school and leader of the games club suddenly asks him, ‘Will you go out with me and join the games club?’ And so the way to a fantastic love-comedy is paved. From there, Keita’s boring everyday life starts to turn into games surrounded by beautiful girls… or so one would think. There is also Chiaki Hoshinomori, who only has eyes for games. And then there is Tasuku Uehara, who’s secretly playing games as well. Tasuku has a girlfriend, Aguri, who loves knowledge games. The stage is set for a love comedy full of misunderstandings and fun.
The original novel was published by Fujimi Shobo’s Fantasia Bunko and sold over 400,000 copies. The newest book, volume 7, came out on 18 March 2017 with illustrations by Saboten. On 25 March 2017, the first volume of the manga adaptation was released.
Manabu Okamoto will be the director, Hiroaki Satou the character designer, and Hiroki Uchida will be in charge of the series composition. The animation studio is Pine Jam (Mahou Shojo Nante Mouiidesukara, Getsuyoubi no Tawawa).
