Hi Score Girl

High Score Girl

The second season of this anime was released some time ago, so I decided to give it a rewatch. Basically it's about a mediocre Japanese student named Haruo Yaguchi who finds a rival, love interest, and fellow gamer Akira Ono, with their relationship developing through videogame rivalry, chiefly fighting games such as the Street Fighter series, and later on characters such as Akira's lackadaisal older sister are introduced. Has some occasional inconsistencies in the dub, which chiefly calls games and consoles by their American names, such as the TurboGrafx-16, although it's later on referred to by its Japanese name, the PC Engine, but I definitely found a place in my heart for the series, since I've been a lifelong gamer.
