Plot: The story of the "90s arcade romantic comedy" manga begins in 1991, during the heyday of the 2D fighting game boom. Sixth-grader Haruo spends practically his entire day at an arcade in the seedy part of town, oblivious to the world around him. However, one day at his usual arcade, he encounters Akira, his female classmate with good grades and money. She may look out of place at the arcade, but she is actually a top-class gamer. Akira completely outmatches Haruo in one Street Fighter II round after another, and their relationship develops from this unlikely encounter.
This news is confusing. There is no stream announced at Anime Expo panel from Warner Bros. Warner Bros instead announced at Anime Expo they will do a world premiere at Otakon instead month after the Japanese tv broadcast. Doesn't really make sense to call it a world premiere when it's after the TV broadcast
Warner Bros. Anime announced during its Anime Expo panel on Thursday that the first two episodes of the television anime adaptation of Rensuke Oshikiri's Hi Score Girl manga will premiere in the U.S. at Otakon 2018, which will be held from August 10-12 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The event will host special guests for the screening.
The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX and BS11 on July 13 at 24:30 (effectively on July 14 at 12:30 a.m.), before airing later that evening on MBS. Warner Bros. Anime did not mention streaming at the panel.
The 12th episode of the anime adaptation of Rensuke Oshikiri's Hi Score Girl manga announced on Friday that the anime will get a three more episodes. These episodes 13-15 will debut in March 2019 as original video anime (OVAs) and via streaming on Netflix.
Warner Bros. anime streamed a teaser that ends with the line, "Everything is for the sake of someone important to me."
I hate phones. A whole 2 paragraphs gone because I wanted to double check the names.
I finished episodes. Anime is not over until the last 3 episodes air in 2019
I really enjoy seeing Haruo, Ono, and Koharu whose relationships blossom through the love of fighting games 8n arcades. While I don't like love angles/triangles, this one was genuinely good. Haruo doesn't seem to have romantic feelings for Akira. He tries to be a good friend because Akira lives in a strict family and no video games. Meanwhile, Koharu has romantic feelings for Haruo. I think Akira Ono doesn't have romantic feelings for Haruo. She does attach to him when playing video games to get away from family. Ono has no friends.

Word from the creator on the new work regarding both the anime and manga
Hi Score Girl manga creator Rensuke Oshikiri revealed at a talk show last Sunday that he is working on a "new work" for Hi Score Girl, although he chose not to reveal anything further out of concern that it would make it harder for him to draw. He mentioned that he had originally planned to start work on it this year, but he has still not started. He did, however, reveal that it would have a "completely different feel from the first generation."
It was also revealed at the event that production on the Hi Score Girl II anime was "almost complete." Producer Yuji Matsukura also explained that the staff started the script and storyboards for the last episode first and worked backwards from there, instead of beginning from the first episode. The music was tailored to fit the storyboards of the final episode. Oshikiri expressed surprised upon hearing this, and stated that this was his first time learning about it.
Oshikiri and Matsukura also shared their memories of playing at arcades. Street Fighter II plays an important role in the anime, and it was also the game that inspired Matsukura to go to arcades. He also said, "Nobody made friends with each other at arcades (laughs). Everyone was scared of the delinquents." Oshikiri revealed that it was through his request that the Takada Baba Game Center Mikado assisted with the game recordings in the series.
Manga creator Rensuke Oshikiri (Hi Score Girl, Pupipō!) launched a crowdfunding campaign for his mini anime project Zashiki-Warashi no Tatami-chan (Tatami-chan the Guest Room Spirit) on October 25. The project would be Oshikiri's directorial debut in anime, and he would also draw the art, write the scripts, draft the original character designs, and even voice the titular character.
The "pleasant horror gag comedy" centers around the life of Tatami-chan, a sardonic ghost from Iwate Prefecture who is now living in Tokyo among other spirits, supernatural entities, and humans. In addition to dealing with otherworldly matters, the unemployed Tatami-chan also has to deal with job-hunting as well as paying for gas, water, and electricity.
