Hi Score Girl [Netflix 12/18]

I was waiting to be sure it was legit, but it seems like a done deal - Hi Score Girl is getting an anime.

Quote:
The year is 1991 and 6th grader Yaguchi Haruo only has video games to live for. He's not popular in school and he's neither handsome, funny, nice nor even friendly. The only thing he has going for him is that he is good at video games. One day at the local arcade, he plays Oono Akira, a fellow classmate but who's popular, smart, pretty and a rich girl that absolutely destroys him at Street Fighter II. Not only does he lose to her 30 times in a row, he can’t beat her at any game. Haruo can’t seem to shake Akira off as she follows him from arcade to arcade everyday after school and beats him every time. As weird as it sounds, the odd couple begins a strange bond and friendship.
I've noted on previous occasions that this was always prominently displayed in bookstores, and seemed to be garnering a lot of attention in manga circles here. It took 3rd in the Manga Taishou this year and was also nominated for a Tezuka Award. Only 4 volumes but a pretty decent seller - around 100K for the most recent.

Along with Baby Steps, this makes two joyous series announcements for me (for a change). This is a very good series indeed - really funny, sharp, edgy and surprisingly deep. Rensuke Oshikiri's Pupipo! is getting a short-form anime this season and the general art style is similar, but apart from that this is a very different sort of manga.

Shit, I didn't even see that Netflix Japan had picked it up. That really blows - it's all down to subbers now.

only adding that this is only for Japan, there is no forecast for the release in the west, I added this because if not many people would think that we would have an episode each week iworldwide.

Anyway, this is one of the highest hyper series in the season, I think it will soon have subs.

So it's licensed in Japan but not the rest of the world? We ended up with another Saiki situation after all?

I don't see it as being as hyped as you do, but I certainly hope you're correct.

There are still subbers in the wild?
I was under the impression that they become extinct years ago.

Basically, it's Princess Leia hologram time for HSG fans, and hope some holdover subber living as a hermit in a cave will hear the call.

Worry do not guys, fansub will always save the day, so just wait a bit more, the first episode is always the one who take the longer to be released because they have to adjust everything (like Sunohara, first one rake a bit, second one was pretty fast).

That's assuming some group is actually subbing it. If no one does, all the episodes take exactly the same amount of time...
