An anime adaptation of the manga series “16bit Sensation: Watashi to Minna ga Tsukutta Bishōjo Game” has been announced. The news was confirmed on the official Twitter account for the manga and was celebrated with an illustration by author Tamiki Wakaki.
It was also revealed that the anime adaptation was first announced on paper shopping bags distributed at Comic Market 101, which took place on Friday and Saturday.
The manga, which was written by Wakaki with collaboration from Misato Mitsumi and Tatsuki Amazuyu, is based on the trio’s real-life experiences at AQUAPLUS. It tells the story of Meiko Uehara, a college student who begins working part-time at a PC shop in 1992. However, the shop is actually a front for its true business: developing erotic bishōjo games.
When the staff suddenly departs, Meiko becomes a sub-graphic artist despite having no experience in adult illustration. She must navigate the challenges of creating an erotic game as she starts her journey as a creator. The manga was originally distributed as a dōjinshi in December 2016 and was later published by Kadokawa in September 2020, with two volumes released as of November 2021.
