The year is 1991, and arcade video games are the latest craze. Becoming a professional gamer is a far-fetched dream in an industry that has yet to spread its influence. Yet, that is the path sixth-grader Haruo Yaguchi wants to pursue. His aptitude for video games has earned him respect in local arcades and bestowed him with confidence and pride, both of which are shattered when fellow classmate Akira Oono easily defeats him in Street Fighter 2. Akira is rich, pretty, and smart—as close as can be to a perfect girl. But Haruo had never cared about these things as, despite his multiple shortcomings as a person, his supremacy in video games was, in his mind, undisputed. So, now that someone has appeared who can rival him, part of Haruo cannot help but loathe her. Another part, however, itches for somebody who can compete with him on equal terms, and Akira is more than capable.

ED1: “Houkago Di(e)stra(u)ction (放課後ディストラクション)” by Etsuko Yakushimaru



This is actually just a Street FIghter commercial


THIS SHOW IS SO GOOD! Too bad people are not giving it a try because of the cgi.


One big nostalgia trip to the 90s with a pair of kids who bond over their mutual obsession with games.


If you like retro games, and don’t mind cg, this show’s pretty cool.


This romance is so good I can ignore the 3D cringe this would usually induce. I can’t wait for the OVA to finish this story.


Started watching for the retro games nostalgia, stayed for the feels.


As a love letter to ’90s video gaming, it’s lovely. As a story, however, it’s a headache. Especially when you’re dealing with whiny brats!



    can i kwill u plis 🥺🥺
