The story centers around the activities of Wakaba Kohashi, "a slightly out-of-tune super" daughter of a well-to-do family, and her friends. Wakaba (literally, "young leaves") looks like an elegant rich daughter, but she admires the trendy gyaru fashion subculture. There is also the pure, innocent, fairy-tale-like Moeko. Mao is capricious and behaves in her own way. Nao used to be an athletic type of girl, but now loves the boys-love genre.

So with most of the summer anime is closing their curtains, Wakaba Girls is also one of them. Being a 13 episode and 7 mins long, i would say, it was a fun ride with Wakaba and the girls through out the series.

The story tell us about Wakaba who is a rich girl trying to learn the common things that are done by commoners, she wanted to be a 'gyaru' which her friends help her, it was cute to see them doing girl things like eating ice cream, hanging out and more which Wakaba really takes it to the next level.

If you want a cute anime with cute girls and just happy feelings this is it! Even though the episodes last only 7 minutes, the character development and the little plot it has, flows nicely.

Usually I don't like this type of anime but since it was short and it sounded interesting, I decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did.

Everything about this anime is just cute and funny. The characters are adorable and extremely likable and the strong friendship that these girls form is just great and people should actually aim to have friends as reliable as them.

I really enjoyed this anime, read more

Wakaba Girl pretty standard fare for a cute girl show. Our main character, the titular Wakaba, is starting her first day of high school hoping this will be the time she finally gets to make friends & do the things Japanese men like reading about Japanese girls doing. In this instance, Wakaba is a rich girl who has spent all her previous childhood following her father's work, so naturally she doesn't have a clue what to do in normal school girl situations. Cute!

Not wanting to waste time, Wakaba soon latches on to the first group of girls she meets. This forms the quartet of friends read more

The moe genre is something I don't always watch. Mainly because I want a story and watching events I may as well do is rather boring of a concept. But I oddly enjoyed this show so let's see why.

There really is none . It's just events of a year span and characters doing there thing with each other. I actually liked the show's sense of humor and it is entertaining to see what there doing. It's an enjoyable show that can be relaxing. So in the very least it's fun.

They all are cliche archetypes but they work. There fun,up beat,and in cases realistic with the read more
