Meet Galko. Tall, buxom and fashionable. She's popular, and is viewed as a bit of a party girl. Although she can be sharp-tongued, she's a good person. One of her close friends is Otako, who is Galko's polar opposite. Small and frumpy, Otako likes to sit in the back of the classroom, but is somehow very close to Galko. To complete the trio is Ojou, an airhead from a rich family.
Oshiete! Galko-chan is a short anime about the daily lives and humorous discussions the girls have about various topics and myths regarding girls' bodies.
Where do I begin with how impressed I am by this short comedy?
I admit, I'm biased-I like shows where cute girls do cute things. Though these certainly aren't Lucky Star moeblobs. It's basically the same concept, but the stuff these girls talk about remind me of what I would talk about with friends. Bodies are weird, okay, and there's nothing wrong with wondering if curtains always match the carpet.
Story: Not much real story. But there was a moment that surprised me-in the middle of the silly skits you'd expect out of a short SoL comedy, there was a surprisingly real moment. It was deep, yo. The character learned something, and tried to change for the better afterwards. A+
Art: Not my favorite, but it's passable.
Sound: NGL I hate the opening song. It's annoyingly catchy but not actually a good song?
Character: Character personalities are great. Even by looking at their names you can tell what archetype they are, and then they, especially Galko, go on to defy those stereotypes.
I will say one thing though: Galko's hair is effing ridiculous.
Enjoyment: 11/10 short enough to keep my equally short attention span.
Overall: Bottom line, if you like eavesdropping on cute girls having mildly vulgar conversations, watch this anime, you voyeur. Those in search of plot or true fanservice or action... what are you even on Galko's page for?read more
Absolutely loved it! Perhaps one of the best underrated shows of winter season, Galko-chan totally came out and dominated the other shorts this season.
Now, Oshiete! Galko-chan isn't as wild other shows that discuss boobs, sex, etc and I think that works out fine because with Galko-chan it has a more natural feel to it. None of the episodes feels like its' going to be too over the top or just plain ridiculous, although it does have it moments of course.
Honestly, the show really doesn't have much to offer in story/plot. I mean everything is explained in the intro song so you pretty much get the idea of what the story is right then and there.
I think the style used in the show is pretty good to look at. The style used really pays its' respects to the original manga which I think is pretty cool. Character designs were fan-friggin-tastic. I loved Galko, I mean, perfect in all portions! Awesome pair of chest-ticles, great body, and so nice to look at. I think she is the best, well drawn and animated character on the show.. I mean, it does make sense though since she is the main character.. The others ladies are also pretty hott too.
Was alright I guess. I didn't pay too much attention to the BGM nor the horrible yet catchy intro song. There's not much else for me to touch on with the music, however the voice actors were pretty great. I noticed that they are new, or somewhat new to voice acting. Some of the seiyuu's have very few to little roles, however they are getting experience which is a good thing. I hope to see... or in this case hear more work from them soon.
I was so impressed with the characters. The show has VARIETY! lots of it. I love it when shows like Galko-chan comes out because I rarely get to watch shows in which I can go gaga over all the girls and get into crazy arguments about the best one(s) (Galko.) I loved just about all, well almost all the girls even sonic meat had some great looks to her. This is one of the many shows where I find it impossible for myself to hate or dislike any of the characters.
Overall I really enjoyed Oshiete! Galko-chan! It was a real pleasure to watch. I mean I could not have asked for any better characters. I'd have to say again that Oshiete! Galko-chan is totally a hidden gem.
I would recommend it, highly recommend it if you need a break from serious shows or maybe you just want to watch something to kill some time, I'd totally tell you to check out Oshiete! Galko-chan! I would have to say that it is worth the watch. Overall I gave Oshiete! Galko-chan 9.2/10 because while it lacked in certain departments or elements, it made up for those mistakes with its characters... its' sexy, sexy characters....read more
WARNING This show is degenerate normie propaganda intended to destroy otaku culture
Show is about some gyaru schoolgirl hanging out with her other friends, sounds innocent enough right? Wrong! Everything about this anime is secretly part of a government conspiracy lead by Shinzo Abe the Prime Minister of glorious Nippon, to eradicate otaku and raise the birthrate of the country.
Don't believe me?
Almost every joke is about the female body, trying to shatter the unrealistic standards of 2D females and open the viewers minds to realize that real women aren't so bad. Gyaru in real life are easy lays so by making the main character a nice pure girl it tricks the otaku into thinking that 3DPD gyaru are fine too, thus creating more children to save Japan from extinction.
They even have some thick ass girl show up later on in the show to get you to open your interests from the generic slim body image, she is pretty hot though.
The nerdy character Otako is the epitome of the propaganda in this series, take a hard look at her name, notice something? Yes you see it don't you? 'Otako' take away the 'O' what do you have? Otak, meaning to launch an attack on something. Now add the letter 'U' to the end of that, Otaku.
Otako is a parody of real life Otaku, an attack on the otaku culture. These dudes are slick.
The animation is decent and colors are nice though
Overall I think this anime is dangerous and should be watched with the knowledge that it is trying to destroy a lifestyle.
~Multilingual review, English & Español: Please tell me! Galko-chan~
Long enough to cover everything that need to be covered and short enough to be interesting, that's the 'mini-skirt rule', and this anime follows it perfectly. However you're still behind a school's desk, or you already left them far behind in your past, I'm pretty sure you all overhead, at least once, a "girl's talk" your slutty girl-classmates did. Leaving aside the disappointment developed when you find out your crush wasn't as pure as you thought, it was sure an embarrassing moment overall.
I once overhead my girls classmates talk about how big a famous singer's genitals were, what would they do with both him and his boyfriend (yes, you read right), among few other things I'd have wished to never hear. That particular event was engraved in my mind so whenever I listen to the word "girl's talk" that unpleasant memory comes to my mind giving me shivers down my spine.
Anyway.. Even if the girls in Anime doesn't represent exactly real high school girls (fortunately), 'Please Tell me! Galko-chan' is one of those few anime who gets closer and manages to recreate a genuine girl's talk while leaving aside how disgusting could turn out to be.. if the girls were to be my classmates, that's it.
Fortunately our protagonists are adorable, simple innocent girls and the arguments of such talks, a bit "stimulating" whiteout reaching plain vulgarity, turn out to be interesting and cute at the same time due to the girls reactions when they get embarrassed even by their own conversations, even pushing the viewers to ask themselves 'How will they react to this?'.
The anime develops around 3 kind of stereotypes of High School girls. The 'gyaru', Galko-chan, a busty fashionable blonde girl which surprisingly is, contrary to her looks and behavior, a very kind and inexperienced innocent girl. The 'otaku', Otako, a small girl with glasses who likes to tease Galko with suggestive questions and arguments, with the risk of ending flustered herself sometimes, however she cares about Galko a lot. The 'princess', Oujou, a total airhead rich girl which hangs out often with the previous two ones.
There are also minor characters, don't forget the anime develops mainly inside a classroom, they didn't shine that much but their presence really give off a genuine "classroom environment". When I mentioned the 'mini-skirt rule' it was referred to the episode's duration, 7 minutes each one. I found the duration quite on mark, short enough to be interesting whiteout the risk of being boring. That was the main quality of this show.
I really liked the characters, specially Galko, and how the main cast argued about such suggestive themes with such cute tones, it turned out to be really nice and refreshing. If you're searching for a short anime, maybe with nice girls and lot of humor, you can hardly find any better than this.
Larga suficiente para cubrir todo lo que tenga que ser cubierto, y corta, suficiente para ser interesante, esa es la 'regla de la mini-falda', y este anime la sigue a la perfección. Independientemente de que si todavía te encuentras detrás de un pupitre escolar, o los dejaste ya atrás en el pasado, estoy bastante seguro que, al menos una vez, has escuchado por casualidad una 'charla de chicas' que hicieron tus -no tan inocentes- compañeras. Dejando al lado la decepción al descubrir que tú amorío no era tan "pura" como pensabas, fue de verdad un momento vergonzoso.
Una vez escuché hablar a mis compañeras sobre cuánto grande eran los genitales de un famoso cantante, que cosa le harían a él y a su novio (sí, leíste bien), entre otras cosas que desearía nunca haber escuchado. El particular momento se imprimió en mi mente, así que todas las veces que escucho 'charla de chicas', ese desagradable recuerdo revive dándome escalofríos por todo el cuerpo.
De todos modos.. Aunque si las chicas en el Anime están bastante lejos de representar exactamente con perfecta afinidad el modelo de chicas en el mundo real (afortunadamente), 'Please tell me! Galko-chan' es uno de los pocos que realmente se avecina y que logra recrear una genuina 'charla de chicas' dejando a un lado cuán desagradable pueden llegar a ser... Si las chicas en cuestión son como mis compañeras de clase, eso sí.
Por suerte nuestras protagonistas son simples e inocentes chicas, y los argumentos de tales charlas, algo "estimulantes" pero sin rozar la vacía vulgaridad, llegan a ser interesantes y adorables al mismo tiempo debido a las reacciones de las chicas cuando se avergüenza hasta de sus propias conversaciones, empujando al espectador a preguntarse 'Y ahora cómo reaccionarán a esto?'.
El anime de desarrolla al rededor de 3 clases de estereotipos de chicas. La 'gyaru', Galko-chan, una chica rubia, siempre a la moda, y con dos buenos melones qué sorprendentemente, contrario a su vestuario y comportamiento, es bastante inocente y amable. La 'otaku', Otako, una chica con lentes de pequeñas proporciones que le encanta molestar a Galko con preguntas y argumentos sugestivos, aunque si a veces corre el riesgo de quedar avergonzada ella misma. La 'princesa', Oujou, una cabeza hueca total que se junta siempre con las otras dos.
Están presentes también algunos personajes menores, sin olvidar que este anime se desarrolla principalmente adentro de un salón de clases, aunque si no brillaron de modo particular, la presencia de estos personajes le dieron un aire genuino de ambiente escolar a la serie. Cuando mencione la 'regla de la mini-falda' estaba referido a la duración de cada episodio, 7 minutos cada uno. La encontré de verdad acertada, corta suficiente para ser interesante, y sin el riesgo de caer aburrida. Esa fue la mejor cualidad de este anime.
Me gustaron bastante los personajes, especialmente Galko, y también como las chicas protagonistas afrontaban los sugestivos temas con tan adorables tonos, al final se revelo ser bastante refrescante. Si estás en busca de algo corto, tal vez con lindas chicas y mucho humor, difícilmente encontrarás algo mejor que esto.read more
