Hyperdimension Neptunia is a series beloved by otaku gamers as the entire concept is based on gaming consoles. Everything references the gaming world, from the characters’ names to places in the show.
It started as a video game but got popular enough to receive an anime adaptation in 2013. The anime showed our protagonists Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Vert fighting off dangers that threatened the existence of their world Gamindustri.
The show ended with the peace treaty between the nations being revoked as they had achieved true friendship and did not need a list of rules to keep them from fighting anymore.
While we are not getting another season anytime soon, the franchise is keeping us busy with OVAs that are just as delightful.
Hyperdimension Neptunia anime series has announced the third OVA, ‘Chō Jigen Game Neptune: Hidamari no Little Purple’ (Little Purple in the Sun), for an April 2023 release.

The plot will revolve around the CPUs’ arch-nemesis Arfoire using a special attack called ‘level down’ on the Goddesses that affects their power magnitudes. But the downside is that Arfoire also gets trapped in the aftermath.
Arfoire’s attack decreased the CPUs’ power levels, making them younger and wiping their memory. Neptune’s sister Nepgear and the others managed to protect Noire, Vert, and Blanc but could not locate Neptune, who got stuck with Arfoire on an eggplant farm.
With no memory and power, Neptune and Arfoire will now have to get back home by helping each other. Will this result in an unlikely friendship that enables them to move past their differences?
Hyperdimension Neptunia OVAs are always wholesome, contrary to the series that almost destroyed the whole of Gamindustri.
Like the previous Thanksgiving-themed OVA, I’m sure we’ll be enjoying this one to the fullest too.
About Hyperdimension Neptunia
Hyperdimension Neptunia is a series of role-playing video games created and developed by Compile Heart and Idea Factory. It has branched off into a manga, light novel, and anime media franchise series.
The anime takes place in a world called Gamindustri, where its four realms are finally at peace after the fruitless war over Share energy. The source of their strength is based on how much their people have faith in their goddesses, the four CPUs that rule over them have finally signed a friendship treaty. The treaty bans any attempt at claiming Share energy through military force.
Neptune, the CPU Goddess of Planeptune, spends her time goofing off and playing games rather than doing her job, leaving her land’s Shares plummeting. The anime follows Neptune and her friends trying to regain those lost shares.
