No. Mangirl has nothing to do with hermaphrodites. I’m assuming the title is the only reason you even checked this anime out, so might as well get that out of the way first.

A part of me feels that the studio who adapted Mangirl wanted to make something good. But they were screwed over by the company, who didn't have very high expectations for it, by only giving them 3 minutes per episode. I can't say I totally blame them though, because even when you don’t put its pitifully short air time into consideration, the concept itself of this anime has a number of flaws that read more

The first thing that caught my attention about this anime is-- how ridiculously short it is. 3 minutes? That's pretty short.

But that aside, it's a pretty decent slice-of-life/comedy anime.

The set of characters are somewhat cliche, and the plot is pretty straightforward. There is no back-story of some sort. I mean, how did Hana and Aki become friends? What inspired them to create manga?

And some tsundere-type girl just appears out of nowhere in one episode.

The art is pretty good, and the animation is fairly smooth.

I admit, I did enjoy it. But it'd be a much better series if the plot was given read more

This anime began airing in the Winter of 2013, and is thirteen episodes long. I generally don't watch anime that are under the standard 24 minutes long, but this one caught my eye even though it was just five minutes long. It was produced by Dogakobo and Earth Star Entertainment, who have also done Natsuyuki Rendezvous, the currently airing Majestic Prince, and Seiken no Blacksmith, which are all pretty good anime that I've seen.

I found the characters to be refreshing, and easy to relate to. The head editor was completely crazy, while the one with glasses seemed normal (most of the time). The comedy read more

Story - It doesn't have much of a clear plot, though that could be due to the episodes only being three minutes. I'd prefer things be explained a bit more so that it doesn't seem as completely random as it seemed to me.

Art - Pretty average. Nothing particularly unique about it.

Sound - Average.

Character - One thing I have to point out, is just how much Ringo looks like Ichigo Hoshimiya from Aikatsu. This is possibly coincidental, but who knows. The characters are a bit on the plain side, having seemingly no quirks I haven't seen before.

Enjoyment - Despite what I've said about the art, story, read more

Anime: Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to The Animation
Both involves MC who are into manga.

Both also involves an MC who has a rather peculiar attitude.

Both have a short duration time.


One was more of a shojo type while the other was more on ecchi.

One anime was more of a gag type of comedy, while the other one was more of an ecchi type of comedy.

Anime: Genshiken Nidaime
The fictional lives of two series' characters are presented in these two hilarious anime series. Well, more than just that they're also involved with the manga industry in terms of creation fictional works related to manga.

The characters has little experience but are fascinated by the concept of making manga. As such, they just to pour in various ideas from their heads and create manga that people can enjoy. Mangirl is much of a short anime while Genshiken Nidaime has more of the character relationship development. However, they both have humor if you're looking for some comedy.
