A few years ago, I asked myself if we’ll ever get another series about characters making manga. Series like Bakuman and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun are among some of the most entertaining anime I’ve seen that explored such ideas. In recent years, we had series about cute girls making games like New Game! or even characters working in the anime industry like Shirobako. Now it’s 2018 and we got Comic Girls.

I’ll say right off the bat that the series is about as simple as it sounds. It’s an anime that explores the daily life misadventures of a group of female mangaka. For a series that read more

The cute girls genre recieves a fantastic addition with Comic Girls, an anime I definitely didn't expect to be as good as it ended up being.

This story is focused on a group of girls who love manga and either draw one professionally, or are trying to get a series published. This proves to be difficult for our lovable protagonist, Kaos, who honestly is just awful at it, and goes to live in a dormitory for female manga artists where she meets the other main characters of the series, hopefully getting inspiration from them.

Comic Girls uses the setting really well to provide a fantastic comedy both read more

Comic Girls fits in an interesting spot for CGDCT shows. While there is an abundance of CGDCT that manage to have nice light fluffy interactions but with little depth, it s rare to see a show like Comic Girls where the depth of the show is the highlight. With Comic Girls there is a lot of depth given to the characters, who they are, what they're aiming for, and the growth that they have as comic artists. While the characters do have their gimmicks and can seem a bit cliche at the start. There is much more to them than that. One thing I appreciate read more

Comic Girls was a pleasant surprise. I was a bit worried at the beginning of episode one when the show cut between a manga author and editor. I assumed it would be similar to Bakuman, a show I wasn't very fond of. Luckily, the show takes a unique turn in showing the daily lives of well-known manga author roommates instead of aspiring manga authors still living with their parents. The show is well designed, with care put into the backgrounds as well as the character designs. Each girl has a unique and rounded personality, separating them from tropes associated with the slice of life genre. read more

To be honest, I really enjoy Shoujo manga/anime. And yes this anime very enjoyable. The story is telling us about shoujo mangakas (girls making manga) daily live. For someone loves shoujo manga can already imagine core of this anime, girl's life.

Story 7/10
I know shoujo manga/anime sometime can be so bored cuz many of them only focus on 'moe-moe' and do any plot to make character more 'moe-moe'. In this anime, yes still moe is important dishes, but the story, shoujo mangaka is a good one. Not so tasteless, but there's some crisp on it.

Art 8/10
Yes, this about moe. Shoujo anime must be moe! Definitely! And read more

I feel this anime really appeals to me as an artist. As an artist in high school myself, I feel I have some girls to relate to. I've wanted to try making my own manga, and now this anime seems to be teaching me some techniques that I will use.

Story 6/10:
The story overall isn't fantastic, but that kind of is the point! Kaoroku Moeta (or Kaos-chan) is a high school student who is a struggling artist. She moves into a dormitory for other female mangaka to get inspiration and learn new techniques and get a serialized manga. The anime follows Kaos and her new read more

Comic Girls is one of the most overlooked shows of the Spring 2018 season. At the time of this writing, it ranks in as the #16 new TV series of the season on MAL based on the number of members attached to it. I’m sure that a large part of this is due to many “serious” anime fans dismissing moe, slice of life, cute girls doing cute things (CGDCT) shows on reflex. But I feel that this show deserves much more recognition than its getting, not just from slice of life fans, but from anime fans in general.

Comic Girls is part of the “cute girls read more

Remember the archetype forms that we have come to know and love or hate all these years? More recently, the "Cute Girls Doing Cute Things" genre has set off recent classics such as Madhouse's amazing "A Place Further Than The Universe" last season and much earlier, to Passione's "Hinako Note" in the same season last year. This season introduces us to Comic Girls, which tells us the tales of 4 mangaka girls, each with their own aspirations to make it big in the comic zone (and potentially get their hard work paid out in the process).

The series core is as simple as it can come read more

Usually, I don't watch shows with cute girls doing cute stuff but this one was an exception. Comic Girls is my absolute favourite of Slice of Life cute girls.

Story 9/10:
The story revolves around Kaoruko Moeta - a mangaka who has just begun her manga creator life. Sadly, all of her storyboards are rejected and she can't get her chapter into a magazine. Then, she got to know about the dorm for female manga artists, who wants to work together. Moeta decides to go there, and then she meets her dorm friends - Tsu-chan, Rukki, Koyume and later, Fuura-san. All of the girls work together read more

I started watching this from the very first episode. But due to me starting to read LN, I got more interested in reading than watching. Now that I've mostly caught up. I've come back and finished this gem.

This is honestly, My favorite show of the season. With only one other show I found interest in. It's not that surprising.

The characters in this I really like. I ended up associating their hair-color more to their names than their actual names. For example.
I call characters
Purple-Hair-Girl > Ruki
Blonde-Hair-Girl ( Also could be Yellow-Hair-Girl )> Koyume
Blue-Hair-Girl > Katsuki
Black-Hair-girl > Fuura
Pink-Hair-Girl < Kaos
The names besides Kaos's read more

Is this the best Anime ever? Is it the best Anime of the season? Does it have the best characters and the best story?

The answer to all the above questions will most probably be No, but don't let that hold you back.

It might not thick the boxes that any other Anime does of this season, but somehow this was still my favourite Anime of this season. The story is simple and easy to follow. The characters are loveable and well designed, even has one of my favourite supporting characters of all time. The art is beautiful and pretty cute at times. Sound is also pretty read more

I genuinely enjoyed watching this slice of life, comedic anime, which follows the life of four manga aspiring artists in their high school years. I found myself enveloped in the anime and it's world filled with colourful characters and scenery as it enabled me to sit down and relax, absorbing the cheerful, light-hearted atmosphere of it's medium.

The storyline wasn't boring in any sense, although, a bit cliche at times perhaps, but interesting to the level that i'd stayed hooked to the anime's various characters, all with their different niches and internal struggles. After a while, I had found myself subconsciously becoming attached to the read more

*Sorry for my bad english
I doubt why this anime's reviews have people give so much score? My personal opinions I think this anime overrated.
Story is simple, about four girl in manga's dormitory. If you expect this anime will be like bakuman or about manga's industry, I said nope. This anime will be like generic cute girl do cute things with content there can find in other that in same genres. For short this anime is only about 4 girls manga writer's life in dormitory.
Art and Music is good. I'm enjoy with them.
Every characters in this anime will be different stereotype live together, If this read more

Adapted from a manga series,Comic Girls surely tries to bring the pain and struggle of the manga Industry into an anime,together with its own style.Although keeping its own style is important,they should also consider whether it'd be a great idea from a general anime perspective.By now,it somehow shows its uniqueness,but doesn't feature Comic Girls really well.

+good opening and ending song
+diversified characters' personalities
+Hilarious and crazy characters' actions
+nice character reactions
+Ending summed up the story

-it feels episodic
-Bad story premise
-story feels shattered because characters work on their own
-repetitive or overused ideas
-undeveloped characters
-poor transitions

At my first glance,I was really excited about Comic Girls,I saw cute girls,beautiful visuals read more

- Finally my review on Comic Girls, starting with the story that as you might expect, the story is extremely simple but very interesting and fun to follow thanks to the direction that knew how to create extremely fun and relaxed moments throughout the anime; in general there is not much to say about the story, it's a simple but fun story to follow.

- About the technical parté, it is simply magnificent, the Nexus studio did an excellent job in Comic Girls, even being a comedy anime with slice of life; the animation and visual are simply magnificent, the scenery is beautiful, colorful and detailed; read more

Now this was a surprising anime. I went in expecting your typical “cute girls doing cute things” moe slice of life comedy that we seem to get at least every season. And it was in fact a “cute girls doing cute things” moe slice of life comedy. I’m already extremely partial to these type of shows and it’s really hard to make them not enjoyable (With the exception Hinako Note. I’m falling asleep just thinking about that one.) Comic Girls follows 4 manga artists who all move into a dormitory to work on their original stories and attend school. Surprisingly, the whole school aspect of read more

I might spoil the show when analyzing the characters. So don't read if you haven't watched the show! Unless you don't care...

I am an artist. It may seem like I'm bragging, sorry if it does, but it is pretty important to my enjoyment for this show. Cause even though every artist doesn't have the same experiences, there are things that many artists do feel.
Being ashamed of oneself work, not feeling deserving of food and other self-destructive thoughts.
I have never really seen an anime about art that shows this side of how artists feel. There are probably other shows that do this. Maybe even read more

Moe gold.

Drawing quality is great, I like the art style. Images are colorful, pretty, characters are cute.
Haven’t noticed any animation issues, movement seemed realistic (expect of course when intentionally tried to be funny). (It’s hard to do a good job, people can easily notice when something is out of place, just don’t feel right. So, this is a great sign.)
Sound effects and music are on point. (dramatic/ominous sound drops)
Story/characters are funny and sweet. (I laughed a lot and my eyes got teary from time to time.)
Pacing was consistent. (Spoiler: Aliens don’t just unexpectedly show up in the last 20% of the show. …well, maybe read more

**** SHORT REVIEW (Kind of)****

As an casual anime watcher who usually despises Moe based anime , I didn't really expect anything good from this series when i started watching but this series proved me wrong and completely surprised me !!
Comic girls is a light-hearted comedy/ slice of life anime where the story revolves around the daily lives of female mangakas and tries to explains the effort behind creating a successful manga/comic series.
Feel free to scroll down to the "overall " and "pros and cons" section.

Now, lets cut right to chase shall we?

Story: 9/10
A simple yet interesting story which revolves around a girl named read more
