A group of 3 yakuza failed their boss for the last time. After messing up an important job, the boss gave them 2 choices: honorably commit suicide, or go to Thailand to get a sex reassignment surgery in order to become "female" idols. After a gruesome year training to become idols, they successfully debut, with overwhelming popularity, much to their dismay. This is where their tragedy truly begins.

Yakuza idols. Welcome to anime, where fucking yazuka idols exist.

When I first heard about it, I thought it was so stupid.

After finishing it, it's still so stupid.

But here is my review on this show!

Comedy (4.5/10)

Back Street Girls takes overexaggerated humor to the max and way past that to the degree that the jokes can get played out really quickly.

It's just screaming with dramatic sound effects in the background and that's your comedy.

There are some dumb moments that are genuinely hilarious but holy fuck the middle portion of the show just became a drag to watch by how unfunny it became.

But I can appreciate integrating the read more

Back Street Girls: Gokudolls is not your typical comedy anime, if i have to put it i'm gonna say "hardcore one" though not to extreme level.
At first I thought "Japan, have you not run out of ideas for making anime even weirder?", then Japan answered it by slam this anime to my face.
Oh god... i had good fun and laugh watching the anime up to end of episode.

It focused much on the characters, how they deliver the jokes and read more

You read the synopsis for Back Street Girls: Gokudolls and it's one of the best yet weirdest set-ups for a comedy series I've seen. I was instantly excited to see how everything would unfold in the show and I actually got what I had expected and a little more.

For a sketch comedy, the story was good in that it was entertaining and a lot of the skits had an inter-connectivity to them and a lot characters that appeared early on aren't just there to serve the purpose of the joke being portrayed in that particular sketch alone. One drawback to the story is that there read more

Remember Mahou Shoujo Ore from last season? Back Street Girls: Gokudolls is pretty much the same formula, only that if it ever existed in the face of the Yakuza.

The story starts with the main Gokudolls Kan, the 3 men (Ryu, Kazu, Big Bro) who have disobeyed their boss, Inugane-sensei, and from his mouth he demands that the Kan are forced go to Thailand for a sex change, transform their lives to be Gokudolls Niji! Oh dear God, that one hell of a chance taken to be idols-cum-yakuza in disguise taken well. As a certain someone phrased it that if this method exists in the East, read more
