Plot Synopsis

Based on Rensuke Oshikiri's graphic novel of the same name, HI SCORE GIRL is a half-hour anime series that centers on chronic gamer Haruo Yagushi, who is abysmally inept in academics and sports, and finally meets his match at his usual shady arcade -- and it's his rich and popular classmate, Akira. Haruo is humiliated at the local arcade when Akira destroys all her challengers in Street Fighter II -- while playing as Zangief. Akira brings Haruo his homework when he misses school with a fever. In return, Haruo lets her play with his collection of PC Engine games. With summer vacation coming to an end, Haruo and Akira join their classmates on a trip to the flower park, but eye the amusement park next door. Haruo invites classmate Hidaka to play a game of Street Fighter II Dash when she's caught in a snowstorm on her way home from school. HI SCORE GIRL had its U.S. premiere on Monday, December 24, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the entire 12-episode first season.
Netflix released the nine-episode second season of HI SCORE GIRL in the United States on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT. They've leveled up to high school, training at arcade fighting games along the way. Now Haruo, Akira and their friends face their final level. In the season opener, Moemi has pushed Akira to excel her whole life, but all she cared about was arcade games. She still likes games, but she also likes Haruo.
