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.

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.

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.

The MC in one anime is quite an optimist while the MC in the other was a bit of a perv.
Both are very short and have very cute girls.
