The May issue of Kadokawa's Dragon Magazine revealed on Saturday that the anime adaptation of Sekina Aoi and illustrator Saboten's Gamers! light novel series will be a television anime. The issue also revealed the anime's main staff.
Manabu Okamoto (The IDOLM@STER 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 Saboten launched the novel series in 2014, and Kadokawa released the seventh novel on Saturday. Yamucha is drawing a four-panel spinoff manga in Kadokawa's Dragon Magazine.
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.
