9 Anime Characters That Are Serious Gamers

For as much as anime and video games go together, these hand-holding kissing cousins don’t cross over too much. There are video games done in anime art style and there are a sparse few anime series that include video games or adaptations of video games, but they don’t overlap as much as you would think. However, if you are looking for anime series about gaming, often you are better off looking for anime with serious gamer characters because trying to find an anime all about serious gaming will be a task.




Moriko Morioka From Recovery of an MMO Junkie

Nothing says serious gamer like someone who only games. Recovery of an MMO Junkie is all about Moriko Morioka who quits her job to become a NEET. Initially she didn’t so so to become a gamer, but remembering fond memories of MMOs in the past, she starts playing one and the rest of the series is basically about the relationships that one forms inside these games.

Sakamoto Ryouta From Btooom!

Ryouta was obsessed with a game called Btooom, so much so he became a recluse. His frustrated mother signed him up for a program to try and rehabilitate him, but it turns out it was really just a killing game that had him playing Btooom for real. Who said those gaming skills would never be applicable, right?

Shirogane Kei From Log Horizon

There are a few series where a character ends up playing their MMO for real in some way, but not all of those characters are displayed as serious gamers. What sets Kei apart from the herd is that he has a mind for game strategy. Every raid team needs a strategist, and in his, he was it. Much of his time is spent examining the world and trying to find the most efficient way to live in it.

Doma Umaru from Himouto! Umaru-Chan

Umaru lives a double life. At school she is perfect and beautiful. At home, however, she is a lazy otaku. That means lots of anime, lots of gaming, and lots of snacks. She is prone to the occasional gamer reference, something you can tell by the references in OP of the series as well.

Shiro and Sora from No Game No Life

Shiro and Sora are the ultimate gaming duo. They are unbeatable at any game online, and while you only get to see it for a little bit, they have an amazing gaming set up. I mean, who needs like six screens? No one. But you still want six screens. That’s the dream.

Subaru Natsuki From Re:Zero

Unfortunately, you never get to see Subaru ever game because he gets isekai’d. However, once a serious gamer, always a serious gamer. Throughout Re:Zero you will note that he makes quite a bit of gaming references. Of course, when he does, his companions are often baffled by his words.

Karen Tendo from Gamers

Gamers is a whole series about gamers. There are gamers that game for fun. Gamers that make games. Gamers that rage like the rage-iest League of Legends players. Karen is the leader of the gaming club and seriously competitive, to the point where games can drown out other aspects of life.

Katsuragi Keima From The World God Only Knows

Keima has a serious collection of games that we see in the series, but he has only one true dedication – the dating sim. This is a noble pursuit, and Keima proves that you can learn a thing or two about romance from playing dating sims enough. Good thing too, since he has to play one in real life.

Izumi Konata from Lucky Star

If you never watched Lucky Star, you probably still know Konata has a passion for anime, but she also love video games as well. She plays parodies of popular video games in the series and there was even a stint where she got into MMOs.
