Since the very beginning, we have seen many games being an inspiration for animes. Once the characters of that game start being loved by people, the thought of anime happens. The producers take it upon themselves to give more life to those characters by building up a story. They begin with giving them a past, then the present, and what they are heading towards. This makes the existence of the game even more fun. Just like it happened with Pokemon, after the game’s hype, we received a life-long present in the form of an anime. Similarly, from Chunithm (an arcade rhythm game), a short anime series is being made called Irodorimidori.
