Releases of the Week: New Game!! kicks off September's amazing gaming month


Game development with a side of cuteness

I hope everyone in North America had a great Labor Day as we get ready to look at the stuff that came out during the week. This marks New Game!!'s (a.k.a. New Game Season 2) North American release, which is a great way to spend more time with the staff at Eagle Jump.

Even though it didn't tackle game development in the way how Shirobako handled creating anime, I found the series and its first season to be funny. In fact, I'm hoping we can get a third season in the future. That way, we can see the rest of the manga in animated form. Also, I found it neat how it came out in the month where stuff like Dragon Quest XI launched in the West.

Seeing that it's a recurring thing for me to list a title that's on my queue list, Sound Euphonium 2's first Blu-ray volume launches. Then again, I am behind on a majority of Kyoto Animation's productions so I need to fix that one day. From the looks of it, it seems to handle school bands in a way that'll make the viewers feel various emotions.

As I was browsing the list, I saw a manga that Japanator Writer Christian Chiok talked about in a previous post. So far, Dr. Stone Vol. 1 gave us an interesting premise with its tale about a guy using science to start a new civilization. To top it off, he's in a world where everyone is now a statue. 

Surprisingly, September didn't start with an overwhelming roster. Nonetheless, there's a good amount of stuff to keep people occupied.
