posted on by Karen Ressler
A flyer from this year's AnimeJapan 2017 revealed on Thursday that the television anime of Sekina Aoi and illustrator Sabotenn's Gamers! light novel series will premiere in July and run for 12 episodes. The flyer also announced that the light novel series has more than 400,000 copies in print.
The anime's official website also opened on Saturday and revealed the key visual for the anime.
Manabu Okamoto (The [email protected] Cinderella Girls, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- storyboards and episode director) is directing the anime at Pine Jam. Hiroki Uchida (Ultraman X, Ultraman Orb) is handling the series composition, and Tensho Sato (Fafner, The Devil is a Part-Timer! key animator) is drawing the character designs for animation.
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 Sabotenn launched the novel series in 2014, and Kadokawa released the seventh novel on Saturday. Tsubasa Takahashi launched 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.
