SEGA of Japan announced today the SEGA Hard Girls Anime has a title and a release date. “High sCool SEGA Hard Girls” will be the anime title and it will be released on October this year!
The story will be somewhat related to the recent Light Novels published by Dengeki Bunko, in which the SEGA Hard Girl Goddess Sisters will be attending the Segagaga High School, since they are living in the human world at human like Sonic’s house. Looks like former Japanese SEGA Mark III (Master System) mascot: Professor Asobin could be their teacher!
The synopsis is the following:
“Enrolled in the Tokyo Haneda Torii “Segagaga High School”, three SEGA Hard Girls: Dreamcast, Saturn, and Mega Drive struggle a challenge for graduation credits from a dubious Professor that appeared there, to solve their problems they will need to enter the SEGA gaming world! Can the SEGA Hard Girls graduate safely?”
