The story of Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata (Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend) revolves around Tomoya Aki, who is an otaku obsessed with collecting anime and light novels. He wants others to experience the same joy from these anime and light novels’ captivating stories and characters, and so he wants to create a video game. Unfortunately, Tomoya doesn’t know how to create a game, so he recruits his childhood friend Eriri Spencer Sawamura for illustration purposes and literary elitist Utaha Kasumigaoka to write a script for his visual novel game. Now that the gang is assembled, Tomoya needs the inspiration to direct the game, which he finds in the beautiful Megumi Katou, who Tomoya bases the main character of the game on.
