A stage event at the "Fantasia Bunko Daikanshasai" event on Saturday announced that author Sekina Aoi and illustrator Saboten's Gamers! light novel series is getting an anime adaptation.
The romantic comedy light novel series centers on the gaming lives of various high school students who play video games, including: Keita Amano, a lonely young man who loves video games; Karen Tendō, the beautiful president of the video game club; Chiaki Hoshinomori, who constantly fights with Keita; and Tasuku Uehara, who puts on a facade of being satisfied with his life in the real world, but he in truth loves video games.
Aoi and Saboten launched the novel series in 2014, and Kadokawa released fifth novel on July 20. Kadokawa will release the sixth novel on November 19. Tsubasa Takahashi is launching a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Shonen Ace magazine on October 26.
Aoi's previous Seitokai no Ichizon light novel series inspired the Student Council's Discretion television anime series in 2009, and the Student Council's Discretion Lv. 2 television anime series in 2012. Sentai Filmworks released the first anime on home video in March 2015, and released the second anime in May 2015.
