Story

“Why not come with me and join the video game club?”
Keita Amano is a second-year high schooler and solitary gamer with no stand-out traits who seems like a forgettable NPC in a video game. That is until his everyday life is turned upside down after meeting Karen Tendo, the most beautiful girl in school and president of the school’s video game club who gets him to join, thus kicking off his romantic love comedy with the female members of the club...or so he thinks!

Characters

Keita Amano (CV: Megumi Han)

Keita is a second-year high school student who loves playing all sorts of video games, from smartphone games to console games, despite not being very good at any of them. He doesn’t have any friends at school because he spends all his free time gaming.

Karen Tendo (CV: Hisako Kanemoto)

Karen is the most beautiful girl in school and the president of the video game club who invites Keita to join.

Chiaki Hoshinomori (CV: Manaka Iwami)

A shy girl who doesn’t socialize much, Chiaki is Karen’s classmate who loves playing games.

Aguri (CV: Rumi Okubo)

Despite her gyaru-style tone and appearance, Aguri is an innocent and slightly scatterbrained good girl type. Out of all the members in the club, she is the only one who has no interest in video games.

Tasuku Uehara (CV: Toshiyuki Toyonaga)

A popular student who leads the boys in his class, Tasuku is Keita’s classmate and Aguri’s boyfriend who puts on a facade about liking his life in the real world to hide his love of video games.
