NEW GAME!, an office comedy TV anime based on the manga by Shōtarō Tokunō about a group of young ladies working as game developers, is returning to Japanese airwaves this July, and one of Tokunō’s peers has created a bit of tribute art to celebrate the occasion.
The tribute art is illustrated by Mountain-Pukuichi, the author of Tamayomi, a manga about young ladies playing baseball. The tribute art features NEW GAME! characters Kō Yagami and Rin Tōyama dressed in baseball gear.
Tamayomi is serialized in Manga Time Kirara Forward, while NEW GAME! is serialized in Manga Time Kirara Carat, both of which are published in Japan by Houbunsha. The 2nd season of the NEW GAME! TV anime kicks off on Tokyo MX and other stations beginning on July 11, 2017.
