New Game!! (Season 2) 12 May 2019

2017 slice of life, 4-koma manga adaptation in 12 episodes: AniDB. Suzukaze Aoba continues to work as a character designer at a computer game studio.

More of the same, really. There are still no major challenges or threats: a couple of newcomers are taken on, and there's another game to be designed and debugged, but any problems, technical or interpersonal, exist basically to be solved by the end of the episode.

The major emphasis, particularly where the two newcomers are concerned, is now on office politics and everyone getting along. Yes, future salaryman, when something is going wrong or you don't fully understand what you've been asked to do you should let people know straight away rather than trying to cover it up. And you shouldn't try to excel; just do your assigned job and don't make a fuss.

There's less arduous work than in the first season, perhaps because of that changed emphasis; but really this series is for people who enjoyed the first season and wanted more, rather than for newcomers. If you liked that, here's basically the same thing again with slight variations, and if you didn't like it or don't know it, don't start here.

No sequel has been announced.
