Hi Score Girl is another non-original debut from Netflix, but promises to be a big hit in its catalog. In general, animes draw much attention, both from the public fan of this model of animation and those who just look for good stories to have a moment of distraction. In this production, everyone can be satisfied: although it may seem silly at first, it is an animation of great value – both in terms of its message and in the technical aspects, which are very important (watch here).
The anime Netflix Hi Score Girl tells the routine of a gamer kid, addicted to arcade and considered the best in town. One day, he encounters an opponent up to his standards. The person in question is a girl who is even better than him in the games and begins to get the attention he used to receive because of it. Coincidentally, she studies in the same school as him, so he knows that she is a rich girl, spoiled by friends and that receives a natural attention because of her lifestyle. She beats him in every game, and that naturally leaves him jealous. However, they end up getting closer and he comes to understand that there is a lot more to her than what he had imagined.
Obviously, there is also a great deal of drama because of the life situation that she goes through. The two are not exactly two calm people – they fight all the time – but that brings them closer and closer, to the point that he begins to live with her and understand that the rich and spoiled personality is just a public facade. It’s touching in many ways, and so Hi Score Girl can make you cry easily.
Hi Score Girl, after all, talks about a sincere friendship caused by a dispute. Two teenagers who have nothing to do with each other, but who help themselves, end up liking each other and after a while, respecting one another. It is very beautiful to watch, and shortly after we see ourselves addicted to it.
Thematically it is one of the best premieres of this end of year in the catalog, that is worth for the beautiful message that it transmits and for being funny and moving in the right measure , without ever seeming mushy.
There’s been a while since a sincere friendship has been transmitted with such sensitivity.
Synopsis 1: He’s honed his mad gaming skills against the best of them, but he’s about to find out she’s got game too.
Synopsis 2: A chronic gamer abysmally inept in academics and sports finally meets his match at his usual shady arcade — and it’s his rich classmate, Akira.
