Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki Season 2: Episode Count Confirmed + Trailer Released
Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki Season 2 episode count is officially announced!
Animes centered around gaming aren’t just about who wins at the end but also the multiple feelings and relationships it creates with fellow gamers.
While video games are primarily a form of entertainment, they can sometimes be used as a tool for developing character and personality.
This trope is precisely what we get to see in the anime adaption of the Yūki Yaku light novel series, Bottom-tier Character Tomozaki.
The story follows a high schooler named Fumiya Tomozaki who has rejected engaging with the social aspects of life, blaming life’s unfairness for giving him average looks, athleticism, and likability.
Rather than making an effort to engage in the absurdly unfair game of life, Fumiya prefers to spend his days playing his favorite perfectly balanced video game, Attack Families.
However, his outlook on life starts to change when he plays an online match against someone who he considers a rival. The two of them end up meeting in real life it turns out to be his classmate Aoi Hinami.
Aoi Hinami is a genius, happy-go-lucky and carefree girl who, by many common consensuses, is considered as a perfect existence.
Hinami is incredibly disappointed that the top-ranked player she looked up to has ended up being someone who wasn’t putting any effort towards life at all.
Tomozaki blames the unfair rules of life and considers himself a bottom-tier character, but Hinami believes that life is a god-tier game with no quit option.
That belief of hers leads to Tomozaki agreeing to be taught the social aspects of life by her enemy so he can judge the validity of Hinami s’ claims, thus beginning Tomozaki’s quest and struggle for self-improvement.
Bottom-tier Character Tomozaki season one was a relative success as compared to other rom-com Winter 2021 anime, and now fans are wondering if there will be a second installment or not.
