Oh we got to see how Otako and Galko met. Always wondered how those met since they have totally opposite personalities. And Ojou still Ojou, "give me a nickname".

In my opinion this did well and is probably in the top 5 shows of the season despite being a short show. 8/10

My Final Thoughts: It's "GRRL POWER" as fuck.

Even though it's made by the Wapanese animu industry; I still feel sorry for the guys who have to deal with Galko and her friends. No attempts to dater her, ask her out, nothing.

Only one episode of upskirt panty shots; and that's all imaginary. BOO!

Every class/school should be so lucky as to have someone like Galko in attendance. She basically just came in, and without even trying to, busted up all the cliques. Or at least bridged them all together. She also goes out of her way to make contact with people. She's has no filter and pretty much says what she's thinking all the time, but she's such a good person that it's never mean. Imagine what your life would be like if you had someone like Galko around! I think I might have ended up a totally different person.

What a great anime short; the prejudiced people who dropped it after a couple of episodes are really missing out. It's a shame, but I will be paying attention to the people behind this heartwarming work.

I always hoped that I'd get to see the two guys in the back getting some screen time till the end but I guess not haha.
Weird that I shipped the blonde guy in the back with Galko for some reason.

Really surprising this last episode, a blast from the past that eventually leaves even more bitterness deserves a second season this show .I loved the narrative setting, the characters and his seriousness, for the series: not even the courts be underestimated. I found much more convincing this series, that so many anime made with episodes with regular playing time. I really appreciated the excellent work done by Studio Feel.

My vote is 8/10.

Its been a while since I've seen a good anime short. Very enjoyable. But the realization that Otako, Galko, and Ojou aren't their real names has left me in despair. I must find out Dx

i want a second season :c

i didn't think that i would like this so much, i started to watch this anime without any expectation, but suddenly i was so into the characters haha, they are so funny and i already miss them, and Otako is so similar to a friend of mine haha, every time she spoke it reminded of this friend

anyway, 7/10

This show was really a pleasant surprise. Sweet, witty, open. I'd definitely watch a full length version of this.

Nice end to this series I guess. I woun't mind a sequel, perhaps twice as long but I guess that won't happen as source material is scarce and this series was only meant as promotion to it.

Still, it wasn't as bad as it would seem in the beginning. This anime really got better with each new episode.

i like how they ended this show with how Galko and Otako met or became friends.
i really like it to be honest because they were trying to say something from this series/from all of the episode, and they were telling us in this episode that "this is what we were trying to say from all of the episode". and i like that :D
the theme of the story is pretty classic but i like how they made it or how they combined it with interesting/werid comedy topic :D
tbh i didn't thought that they were trying to say somthing from this seires or i didn't see the story theme. all i just saw is just a comedy show.
and they said it in the final episode that this show has a meaning. has a story theme.

Galko/Gyaru (i don't know what is that mean but i understand what she was trying to say), Honor students, and Outsider. That is excatly the definition of school XD and i like the theme too even tho it's classic. like Galko said "i think it is wrong to labeled people like that and they are supposed to be interacting to people with the same labeled or category" (if i'm not wrong). Classic! but the way they made it, it was really good in my opinion.

Story theme aside, i like this show overall. short, but fun with interesting/weird topic. it is an enjoyable show to me. the animation was okay, soundtrack was okay, character was good/funny to me :D. AND! "Galko" , "Otako" , "Ojou" are a fake name LOL XD i thought it was a really weird name, and LOL it's really fake. i didn't see that coming. i like how they introduced each other with fake name or nickname like that. that is pretty cool to me :D

Man,when I remember how low my expectations for this anime were.... this was seriously one of the best short series this season. it was cute,fun to watch,and realistic at some aspects which is rare for short anime to be. it even got serious with the end how the society judges people by the looks. I hope for season 2...

Pretty nice flashback on how they first met for a last episode I must say!

All in all a bit of a weird yet lewd anime, filled with some fun jokes and a bit of service!

Pretty fun anime to marathon in general!

Aww, this was a cute final episode. I'll miss these girls, and their other classmates as well! I enjoyed the comedy in this show, it didn't beat around the bush or get dragged out to much.

I don't think all high school friends are meant to be friends forever, but I wish Galko and her friends the best in all their endeavors :)

Girl Talk the anime had a nice ending. It'd be cool if this got a season 2 at some point.

The anime was cute, but I going to miss it. It had such cute characters with unique personalities. I hope they make a season two one day, however it might be odd since its a short series.

Not bad. This show was entertaining, youthful and pretty realistic. It's nice to see girls in anime talk about thinks that actual irl girls talk about.

So female anime lover is called Otako? Learn something new.
This last episode is about how the three of them meet each other.
Friends in high school is your life long friends? Both I believe, some friends from high school, I never seem them again while some are still friends with me.
8/10

Time to unlearn it.


At the class, Galko casually ask Otako for that question because Ko is common suffix used in female given names, such as Tomoko, Eiko, Hideko, Mineko. It is not a thing, it just Galko thought.

and Otako doesnt really gave an answer, and it just become Otako nickname.

Female otaku still called otaku.

I see many drop this show because they think its a stereotype anime, but the truth it the contrast of it. Truly hidden gem. Really sad at the most helpful review at the Anime page :(

Wasn't a fan of the first few episodes, I recall greatly disliking the first one but the series definitely improved during it's run eventually settling into a consistent groove of mildly entertaining. Ojou was for the most part entertaining throughout, and that Hachiman segment was great, outside of that it didn't provide much in terms of laughs for me, but there was a sweetness between the characters that I started enjoying my time with it. 5/10.

If you're seeing it closely Ojou is.. lurking.. spying on them. Well I guess that's obvious xD

See ya tomorrow! But that didn't happen :(
Where's my sequel!?

So.. in the end.. what's their real names? I'm curious, I want to know!

This show was so much better than I expected. I really liked the origin story this episode. It makes their friendship make a lot more sense (especially Ojou who just kind of showed up and joined without really thinking about it!)

8/10

The bad:
* Even after all that, Otako has learned nothing. She's jealous and passive aggressive towards Galko the whole time. It's an unhealthy friendship.
* The show can't decide if it wants to appeal to girls or guys. The fanservice was so annoying.

The good:
* I didn't expect to learn so much about my body from an anime like this.
* Decent comedy.
* Interesting character designs, though I wish they toned down Galko just a little bit.
