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 was pretty good, and had me laughing at alot of parts. Also, the opening was pretty catchy, and although I liked the animation and the characters, I felt it lacked development a little bit. I'm a scrooge for animation so this is mostly why I don't watch short anime, because their quality of animation is generally lower.
This plot has already been done by Bakuman, even though Mangirl! is a little different. My favorite episode was probably where they went to the comic store and they were sold out. The mangaka was also pretty funny when she was starving and her apartment was filled with trash because her assistant was on vacation. I do feel like this anime shows what it's like to be a manga editor and mangaka. It could be considered almost educational even, overlooking the tangents that the crazy characters go off on all the time.
A special is scheduled to air May 24th, for episode 14. I'll definitely be looking forward to watching these crazy characters after their success in the manga world. read more

The Plot : I find Jormungand to be unique in it’s genre because I’ve never watched an anime with a weapons dealer as the main character before. I actually read the first volume of the manga like four years ago and greatly enjoyed it. So when the anime came out I was pumped. I think the plot is very engaging and funny. If you like comedic violence this is the show for you.
The Characters : So I ABSOLUTELY love two characters in this series. The first is Jonah. He’s super cute yet he’s a child soldier. He is very strong willed, but he is also kind of like a zombie for most of the series. You can tell he cares about Koko, and she about him. He is the best on the team in my opinion and my favorite part is when they’re trying to teach him math and they are like “If there are 18 wheels on one airplane, then how many are on three?” And after waiting for five minutes, he was like “A lot.” Funniest. Thing. Ever. Then there’s Koko. Just like the end thing says, she is loco! But she’s also a very unique character. She definitely stands out in the anime world and I don’t think theres another character like her. If there is, they’re probably crazy too. As for the rest of the team I like them all also, they just don’t stand out to me. Except Valmet, she’s pretty B.A.
Overall: This was a great anime, I loved every episode and I can't wait for season 2 in October! read more
