For thousands of years, humans have debated over the most essential question of them all: what is a mangirl? Throughout history, that puzzling conundrum has ended friendships, severed marriages, and started two World Wars. It destroyed the minds of great philosophers and caused the deaths of billions of people. That question brought devastation and death in any place it was uttered and no one had any idea of how to solve it. Finally, in the year of our Lord 2013, a thirteen-episode obscurity of an anime by the name of “Mangirl (with an exclamation mark)” was released to the public with the intent of answering read more

This title is click bait, just so you don´t get confused when you see no shemales or trans or whatever in this anime XD XD
This is your really average moe girl anime, which I am not normally that much into, but because this is an short anime filled with okay good humor, then it was quite enjoyable for me even though it was still predictable because the main 4 characters are archetypes, you have your genki (Hana), your cute foody girl(Tsugumi), your nadeshiko(Ringo) and your meganekko(Aki) (if I have classified them correctly) XD and then some other few really archetypes supporting characters with no depth, read more

I've never been a huge fan of the Slice-Of-Life genera. They're just so simple and not all that entertaining, but don't get me wrong, there wasn't anything significantly wrong with "Mangirl," the characters were cute atleast, although, The show itself was a little fast paced and rushed, but even so it was still understandable and easy to follow. For a show that is only 13 episodes long with only 3 minutes in each episode,"Mangagirls," (which is what this anime really should be called to avoid confusion as to what it's about,) it wasn't bad.

STORY 4/10

Decent at best not worth the watch. While no doubt the characters are cute and the background looks nice there is no covering the poor plot. Manga creation is a steady hard working job like most jobs. Requires skill, effort and a lot of money. They expect the viewers to be okay with the idea of not only an entire cast of amateurs trying their luck in the field but amounting to success? Sure, weird stuff has happened that can't be explained. Like what is up with area 51? Or the constant discovery of new creatures. But to say a gang of read more
