If you're looking for anime similar to New Game!, you might like these titles.
Aoi will never forget how she felt the day her high school animation club’s labor of love was shown at the cultural festival. The sense of awe and the feeling of accomplishment that came with completing their very first project are exactly what encouraged Aoi and her club mates to enter the animation industry in the first place. But two years later Aoi has graduated, and now that she works as a production assistant for a big-name animation studio, the daunting reality of her job has somewhat diminished her enthusiasm. Despite the long hours and the punishing schedule, Aoi still hopes to fulfill the promise she and her club friends Ema, Shizuka, Misa, and Midori made: to one day reunite and make a real animated feature of their own as professionals!
It is somewhat similar. Its about making anime, which is similar to making games. Its more realistic in the age and their looks, unlike aoba who is 18 with a 13 year old body.
Work place setting, and following their dreams. The two stories mirror the struggles of production and creation.
Although Shirobako is mainly focused on anime creation and New Game on videogame creation, they both let you in on how the industry, works. New game being more of a cute comedy and shirobako a more acurate like portrayal. The atmosphere of teamwork in both is what makes them similar in my view.
The idea that teamwork drives both anime and video game development. The party at the end of each series gave a moment to ponder how complex the process can be.
Cute anime girls doing their absolute best at their new jobs? New Game is more pink moe, but they're both so heartwarming that I can't even.
Both New Game and Shirobako have a workplace setting, whilst one is about making a game the other is about making an anime. They both have an enjoyable cast and you'll also learn about the production of said projects and watch them struggle with it.
Follow a rookie seiyuu in her first steps into the world of professional voice acting! She might be unsure of herself, but Futaba Ichinose is ready to make it as a professional seiyuu. She meets Ichigo Moesaki, an actress who won’t stop until she’s an idol seiyuu who not only acts but also enchants audiences with singing and dancing performances. These two rookies are joined by Rin Kohana, who is already a seasoned professional who made her debut when she was 5, who has a middle school life while working as a professional seiyu.
Both shows are about girls that go out into the workplace world to follow their dreams. Seiyuu's Life takes a look at voice acting, where New Game is about making video games. Both are perfect matches if you like girls learning the ropes at their new jobs!
These series have the same general feel and content type, simply covering two differing careers. Seiyuu Life! is, perhaps, a bit more detail oriented and New Game! a bit more character-oriented. Even so, they are fairly parallel works and if you like one, you'll almost certainly enjoy the other.
Both series offer a pleasant workplace comedy focussed around characters truly passionate about their respective creative fields. Both offer some insight into their respective subject industries. New Game is heavier on the comedy and character interactions and boasts stronger animation, while Seiyuu's Life offers a deeper comprehensive look into the anime voice-acting industry than New Game does the video game industry.
Working life in the entertainment industry. Similarities are young women in the entertainment industry, and the ups and downs in their fields. Both are light-hearted views and often leave me with a smile
Tamaki Honda, a first year high school student, joins the peculiar SNS Club. With nothing but her wits and her artistic skills, she must traverse the world of doujin (self-published) game development. As new issues arise within the development of game making, Tamaki learns more about her club member’s odd personalities.
Cute girls making games. Stella no Mahou focuses on a club in high school that makes video games. New Game! is after high school. the two aren't related.
Both are a lot of fun while lightly touching on the trials of making a video game.
Another cute girls doing cute things anime in which the cute moe girls create games in order to build up popularity of the club/company and so on. These two shows are really similar in how they present themselves and the elements that are in them. The main diffrerence is where both are set, one in a workplace whereas the other in the generic high school. I would say if you liked one of these anime then you should like the other.
One day, an otaku high school student Tomoya Aki has a fateful encounter with a girl. This meeting inspires Tomoya to design his very own “gal-game” featuring a heroine modeled after the girl he saw. In order to make his desire a reality, Tomoya must persuade a few eccentric “creators” such as the ace member of the art club, Eriri Spencer Sawamura and the school’s top student, Utaha Kasumigaoka to join his development team. Meanwhile, Tomoya is shocked to learn that the girl he idolized as his muse for this whole project was none other than his boring classmate, Megumi Kato!
If you want to watch anime about hard working people pursuing their dream then New Game! & Saekano is a good choice. New Game is more about working in a professional company and Saekano is an amateur adventure. Either way, its fun to watch any of them.
Both anime are about making games.
Saekano is a story about a boy make a game with 4 girls in a club.
New game is a story about girls in a company making game. (Characters all girls)
Shiina Kokomi is a hard working but even tempered high school girl who is the lead performer in her school's rhythmic gymnastics club. The story follows her and her growing circle of friends as they support each other through the various trials and situations that comprise high school life.
Both serieses have a similar premise, bota are simply about the interactions of super cute girls, with some funny scenes and absolutely no mach of a bigger story. The differecne is that GB beta fails in it's premise miserably and here comes New Game which does it right :)
Third season of Working!!
Both animes (I linked season 3 of Working but please start with season 1 :P ) are great slice-of-lifes and are full of fun! Popura-chan is 'like' Aoba in that they are both trying to be responsible 'adults' despite their looks. There are more characters in Working, which is also longer and gives more attention to character development (which is fair given that it is a few seasons longer).
The art is done well in both and whilst Working has some under-the-table/developing romance lines (more explicitly than Kou and Rin), both are light animes that bring great joy! ^.^
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
Chiyo Mihama begins her high school career as one of the strangest students in her freshman class—a tiny, 10-year-old academic prodigy with a fondness for plush dolls and homemade cooking. But her homeroom teacher, Yukari Tanizaki, is the kind of person who would hijack a student's bike to avoid being late, so "strange" is a relative word.
Chiyo Sakura, a high school girl who fell in love with the unrefined boy schoolmate Umetaro Nozaki, decides to be courageous one day and asks him out. Her feelings weren't conveyed properly, and before she knew it she ends up helping a particular job of his as an assistant... The series is a shojo manga boy comedy which centers around Nozaki, a high school boy that is a popular shojo manga artist, and has a story woven by very individualistic characters.
One anime is a romance comedy about a manga artist and a schoolgirl and the other is about being a new employee at a video game company - but they are actually somewhat similar. Each display the overall process of making a manga volume/video game, they are both lighthearted anime and each have their fair share of laughter - and even though Nozaki-kun does have a romance anime tag you really don't need to worry about it until the end of the show.
In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.
It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members, but for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsumugi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!
