Hi Score Girl CONTINUE
ハイスコアガール (Japanese)
Genres: comedy, romance
Plot Summary: It's 1991 and the heyday of the 2D fighting game boom. Sixth-grader Haruo spends practically his entire day at an arcade in the seedy part of town, oblivious to the world around him. However, one day at his usual arcade, he encounters Akira, his female classmate with good grades and money. She may look out of place at the arcade, but she is actually a top-class gamer. Akira completely outmatches Haruo in one Street Fighter II round after another, and their relationship develops from this unlikely encounter.

The manga entered legal hot water when SNK Playmore filed a criminal complaint against Square Enix in August 2014, asserting that the Hi Score Girl manga features over 100 instances of characters from The King of Fighters, Samurai Spirits (Samurai Shodown), and other fighting games owned by SNK without permission. The legal issues were resolved and the manga resumed in 2016, and old volumes were reprinted, under the new title Hi Score Girl CONTINUE.
