Eriko and her friends Yuma and Ayano are excited about entering high school. Their excitement leads to their breaking of the rules when they toured the school before the opening ceremony. They find out their preconceptions about the all female school may not be as true as they had first thought. Despite that, Eriko and her friends are joined by new friends. They aim to get through high school life together.
High School girls is a straight forward comedy with a lot of in your face jokes about the lives of a group of girlfriends attending a high school. They don't joke about typical things that are safe for children. Rather, they take the more adult oriented ecchi route and run with it.
The story runs in a typical sitcom style, with every "issue" solved in 30 minutes or less. Things usually start in a safe manner (like going to gym class or going karaoke), but by the end it just ends up all sexed up and wacky. Sexual innuendo's are all over this show.
Thats part of this shows charm and makes it pretty entertaining (if you like that kind of stuff).
Art (Decent) --- Sound (Mediocre)
The art and sound is all pretty average for what its worth. Art is not too detailed but not too simplistic. It's very... AVERAGE. Although they drew the girls all cute like and hilarious, you can tell that everything else (backgrounds, static objects, etc) had less time taken to produce. The sound has typical anime comedy sounds but what helps out the most is the music in the show. It's all so very upbeat and happy, I could hear Kirameku (op song) over and over and it won't get old. Even after a year of finishing this show, I still enjoy that song as much as I did the first time heard it.
This show doesn't have much in terms of sound, story, or art. So High School Girl's trump card to make this show remotely worth watching are the high school girls. With the lack of men in the show the girls all take center stage and make for some pretty unique moments. Particularly from all the innuendo jokes. Those moments are so wrong, its hilarious. The girls aren't even over developed as you would expect from an ecchi comedy. Rather they're all drawn like normal looking girls, which help enhance the comedy.
Overall if you enjoy a good ecchi comedy that more based on situational jokes rather than blatant fanservice with a few jokes. Give this one a shot. It is definitely for anyone who enjoys a dirty joke or two. And a special note: some of the funniest jokes are at the very end after the credits.
To put it bluntly, theres not much of a story that this show follows, it more or less depicts a group of girls that meet under abnormal circumstances and become friends due to that. While each episode depicts some sort of relationship within the group, there isn't any over reaching story arc. Nonetheless, each episode helps the characters become more and more enjoyable.
Again nothing special. There was nothing ground breaking about the character designs and backgrounds, but that wasn't what this show was aiming for. The cutesy feel that the designs give off are exactly what helps make the show.
perfect fit for the show. Background and Thematic music fit well. As for the OP/ED very annoying. Its a fun jpop sound that annoyingly sticks after listening to it.
I've been a little rough on the show so far, but this is where it begins to shine. The quality of the characters shine though, allowing the show to truly become enjoyable. As for the series of events that these characters partake in, you can't help but sympathize with them. They just make the show that good.
while this show is nothing special in the grand schemes of anime, it was enjoyable nonetheless. As for the last episode "stupidity, never ending stupidity" sums the show up fairly well. But thats what the show was all about. It was a lot of fun to watch. sadly its only a 12 ep run, If you liked Ouran high school host club or Azumanga Daioh, this should easily fit in somewhere between the two.
While browsing titles for something with a high school setting, I stumbled upon Girl's High... Six high school girls and their misadventures, plus some ecchi? There was no reason for me not to give this a chance.
Each one of the six MCs has her own personality: there's an immature one (make it two, actually), a petite one, a shy one, a mature one, and one that wants to be an actress. I must say that I liked each and every one of them; there was no MC that I hated. I really liked how the characters were created (which includes their designs), as well as
their relations. They do have their bickering, but at the end of the day, they stick together to overcome any problem they run into. A bit cliché maybe, but it still works for me.
The sound is also good. I especially liked the ending theme.
Why I liked this anime: while watching, I kept seeing things that I wanted to see. For example, in TV shows with a high school setting, I really like to see the antagonist: usually a rich and popular girl who plays the MC's rival. There was such a character here. Then there were some (mildly) dirty jokes, innuendos... I simply couldn't dislike that.
Another good thing about Girl's High is that, unlike some similar titles, episodes don't look like each other: they explore different parts of the girl's lives. In one episode the girls have a dating party, in another they participate in the school sports fest, then they go to the swimming pool, then the culture fest... I liked the variety of stories.
What about ecchi? Well, much to my misfortune, there's no nudity here; just a great amount of pantyshots, especially in the first few episodes. It's just not my thing (personally, I don't even consider anime an ecchi just because it has lots of pantyshots), and I would've liked it better if they showed us some boobs, but it's not a big complaint.
At the end, I was disappointed because this anime only has one season. The last episode left some space for more episodes, but unfortunately, apart from three short OVA episodes, there's nothing more. Which is such a darn shame.
To put it shortly, this anime reminded me of Azumanga (six high school girls and their everyday lives), but with more mature humor. Since I like both Azumanga and mature humor, this anime was almost bound to "buy" me. And it did. Okay, I can't say it's my new favorite thing, but it was definitely worth my time.
Here's the bottom line: if you're a shoujo fanboy and like high school shows, you'll probably totally dig on High School Girls (aka Girl's High).
The plot isn't original. The show follows 6 high school girls through one year (first year) of high school. Along the way we visit the Sports Fest, the Culture Fest, we go to amusement parks, sing karaoke, and even go to a love hotel! But nothing groundbreaking.
The 6 girls all have different personalities, of course. We have the sweet girl, the innocent girl, the tsundere, the girl who loses her viriginity, and a couple more cuties
thrown in for good measure. I liked the fact that there are 6 girls in the main storyline instead of 3 or 4 you sometimes get with these high school shows.
What makes the show good is the character development of the girls. The interaction and friendships among them work well and there are a few mild subplots that also carry interest throughout.
We also have the usual male teachers leering after the girls and of course that makes for some hilarity.
There is a fair amount of naughty humor and indecent situations, more than you'd see in most other HS shows. This is why I HIGHLY recommend this for fanboys.
Hey, the girls are cute, the show is fun to watch, and there's pretty good repeat value too. High School Girls is a winner in my book!
