Grab a fist full of quarters and head back to the arcade for more coin popping fun as Hi Score Girl is set to return to Japanese airwaves on October 25. The anime adaption of the Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Rensuke Oshikiri aired from July to September 2018 and was produced by J.C. Staff and Shogakukan Music and Digital Entertainment. The series revolves around a young man named Haruo Yaguchi who is dismal in various facets of life: He’s not academic, not athletic, and not very attractive. The only thing he’s got going for him is an insane amount of mad gamer skills. However he meets his match while playing Street Fighter II in the form of another gamer who is just as skilled as he is – his rich classmate Akira Ono.
The first season of Hi Score Girl is currently available on Netflix.
