The story follows a top game player’s ups and downs in his professional career, only to return to the gaming world once again. From the novel, it’s been adapted into an anime, and now a drama. Even my lito brother is watching the anime…. GAH. Must I jump on ship too? I don’t have time ~
Filming will begin in September.
