So our heroine, Aoba, has graduated from high school and gotten a job as an artist at a game company. That's our story.
We've seen it before: "The people creating your entertainment are a bunch of fruitcakes". It turns out that all of Aoba's coworkers are nuts in one way or another, at least based on the first half of the first episode, which was all I could stand. Then I gave up.
These kind of "industry insider" shows seem a bit masturbatory for the people creating them. First one I ran into was "Animation Runner Kuromi" which really, really reeked IMHO. That cured me of being interested in the genre.
There was one last season or the season before it about seiyuus trying to break in. I don't remember the name, and I didn't watch any of it.
And I probably wouldn't have watched any of this one either, except that Fapservice decided it was worth a post. (NSFW) I suppose I should have picked up on the fact that they only managed to get one post out of four episodes. Still, it gets points for not being about high school girls. (Variety is the spice of life, and life doesn't end in third year of high school.)
But in the end I found it tedious and uninteresting. Thumbs down.

I don't know if that applies to New Game inasmuch as it's anime about game design, and doubly because it's not -really- about game design per se; yeah, that's what they're doing, but if they were engineering well-heads it wouldn't fundamentally change anything in the show. It's a low-key moe Dilbert rather than Shirobako. But it doesn't have enough Dilbert humor, really...
Good enough to have on while I do other stuff, but if it had a lot of competition I'd drop it. Fortunately for it, it's available Monday and before Sweetness and Lightning, so it's "put it on while I do morning-ish stuff" here.
