Hi Score Girl is like a nostalgic trip back in time to the era of arcade games. Will there be Hi Score Girl Season 3 on Netflix?
With Hi Score Girl, animation studio J.C. Staff adapts the manga of the same name penned by Rensuke Oshikiri. The anime first aired on Japanese television in 2018 and is available internationally on the streaming service Netflix. Fans have been asking themselves for some time now whether Hi Score Girl Season 3 will also be released. We clarify.
This Is What Hi Score Girl Is About
It’s 1991 and for sixth-grader Yaguchi Haruo, life consists only of video games. He’s not popular at school, nor is he good-looking, funny, or even friendly. The only thing going for him is his arcade game machine skills.
One day, at the local arcade, he plays against Ono Akira, a classmate who is not only popular, smart, beautiful, and rich, but is now mercilessly destroying him in Street Fighter II. In the process, he loses 30 times in a row. To make matters worse, he can’t get rid of her, because she follows him from arcade to arcade every day after school. Over time, a strange bond of friendship begins to form between this unlikely couple.
Is Hi Score Girl Season 3 Coming?
Although the anime has been well received so far, a sequel is quite unlikely. Apart from the fact that Netflix has not yet announced Hi Score Girl Season 3, the manga no longer offers any material, which could be adapted for new episodes. The plot of the series is thus considered to be over.
If you want, you can look for alternatives on Netflix. There are plenty of romantic comedies there, even in anime style. For example, it’s worth taking a look at the fairly new series Komi Can’t Communicate, in which a boy helps his classmate overcome her shyness. Bunny Girl Senpai is also a must-watch for romantics.
