Two high school girls battling their socks off in a fighting game? Yes, please! The manga Young Ladies Don’t Play Fighting Games only has 2 volumes as of writing this article. Usually there is some more significant number of volumes of manga before anyone talks about adapting it to anime. Which is why this announcement is unexpected, but a welcome one. We will go over what the series is about and give a quick introduction for those of you who don’t know about “Young Ladies Don’t Play Fighting Games”.

The video mostly promotes the premiss of the series. although they do have dedicated voice actors for this specific video, it is uncertain they will return for the role in the actual anime. With black and white colors straight out of the manga, this isn’t what the final product will look like, but we can feel what it might sound like. The video itself was released about a year ago.
|What’s The Series About?
The story follows 2 girls who are into fighting games. It takes place in an all-girls school with a dormitory system. In this school, most of the girls are raised to be elegant women… it’s a really nice school. Shirayuri-sama is a student there who is the school’s Madonna. As we see in the promo video, one day when she is playing a fighting game, her classmate Aya Mizuki catches her. The next day Shirayuri-sama confronts her and realizes Aya is also good at fighting games. Aya refuses to fight with Shirayuri-sama because she has put games to her past and wants to be an elegant girl. The story finally takes off when Aya accepts to demolish Shirayuri-sama in a battle against pride.
2 girls playing video games to protect their pride ??? Count me in. Can’t wait to see what heppens next!

I will paraphrase and try to communicate what the writer left as a comment when asked about the anime for the series.
“The readers of my series will say something like,’what? ‘that was fast!’ when they hear about the anime adaptation. I feel the same way too. I worked hard to try to make it an anime, but didn’t think it would be this fast!”
A humble comment from the creator. Yes it is faster than normal manga becoming an anime, but this series may have always meant to be an anime.
