45-year-old Reiji Watanabe visits his parents' home. His parents used to run an arcade. While there, Reiji fondly yearns for his friends Kido and Takano. Back in 1983, their family's arcade "Game Center Watanabe" was always full of customers, including neighborhood kids and salarymen. Reiji's friend Kido would come over to their arcade every day. Kido would spend most of his allowance on the games there. Reiji wasn't interested in the video games at the time, but after he saw a pretty girl named Takano playing, he also began to play. Reiji and Kido would then compete all the time. From 1983, Reiji, Kido and Takano enjoyed playing games and experienced good and bad times together. Add Synopsis In Portuguese
Cast & Credits
There is a smidgen of romance at the beginning but that's all you'll really get. The main focus of the drama is bonds between friends and how those bonds can be gained and kept through the magic of video games. You don't necessarily have to get all of the video game references to enjoy the drama. I don't play visual novels but I thought the visual novel parody they did was quite funny. This drama has a great soundtrack as well, with much of it being inspired by 8 bit video game music. Anyone who liked Yuusha Yoshihiko to Maou no Shiro might enjoy this one as well. Whether you're into games or not, I'd recommend this one. You might learn something!
