We’re shining the spotlight on anime’s female gamers – individuals known for their lightning-fast reflexes, competitive spirit and unwavering focus on success.
Characters who love video games can now commonly be seen in anime series. These characters, who are often absorbed in their gaming screens, either going crazy at arcade machines or relaxing with handheld consoles, provide a regular sight for viewers.
Over the Winter 2022 season, Marin Kitagawa from My Dress-Up Darling won the hearts of fans. Her dedication and love for her favorite videogame characters have made her a sensation among anime enthusiasts, particularly through her cosplaying activities.
Like Marin, four other anime characters demonstrate a similar fanaticism for video gaming.
Here are 5 anime female gamers who would likely outperform you in gaming
- Umaru-chan (Himouto! Umaru-chan)
- Marin Kitagawa (My Dress-Up Darling)
- Shiro (No Game No Life)
- Konata Izumi (Lucky Star)
- Chiaki Nanami (Danganronpa)
Umaru-chan (Himouto! Umaru-chan)
When it comes to discussing enthusiastic anime gamers, Umaru Doma, the protagonist of Himouto! Umaru-chan, is a name that springs to mind.
She’s considered a beautiful and above-average student on normal school days. However, after school, she turns into chibi (miniature) form, adorned in a comfy hamster hoodie, an oversized white t-shirt, and leggings.
Her nighttime routine comprises feasting on potato chips, drinking cola, and indulging in video games and manga throughout the night.
When she ventures outside to the arcade, she goes under the alias of UMR.
Marin Kitagawa (My Dress-Up Darling)
Marin Kitagawa, the star of My Dress-Up Darling, is the quintessential school sweetheart – liked by all, beautiful, and seemingly perfect.
But beneath this faultless appearance, she’s a passionate otaku (a lover of anime and manga) with a knack for gaming. Her classmate Gojo Wakana discovers her secret and helps her cosplay her favorite characters.
