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?

Recommendations

Both involves MC who are into manga.

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

Both have a short duration time.

Dissimilarities:

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.
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.
