Self-styled Kogal queen Kotobuki Ran and her friends just wanna have fun, which includes shopping, hanging out, and scamming meals off gullible guys. Unfortunately, their "hood"—Shibuya—is in constant danger of being despoiled by dirty old men, street gangs, nasty Kogal rivals, and other societal evils. But with a little help from her friends and a toughness born of coming from a family full of cops, Ran takes on the bad guys (and gals) with gusto!

I honestly loved it at first. I even read the first three volumes at least three times. But as it progressed, it started to get bad for me and by the end of the fourth volume i completely lost interest and dropped it. I'm not saying it's a bad manga. I only lost interest because I didn't like who Ran ended up with. I'd been cheering for her to end up with Rei. Aside from that, it's a good read. It's packed with comedy and romance.

Gyaru or as known to the Western world, "Gals," are the gaudy, hilariously tanned party animal girls of Japan that were quite the hot issue back in the 2000s. They're what would be if the popular white girls of Cali spent every afternoon at a Brazilian tanning salon and romped around downtown with flashy hairstyles and clothes that look like a unicorn's salad. And most importantly, there's a manga about them. And it's actually much better than you'd expect!

On the surface, GALS! seems like your run-of-the-mill uber-girly shoujo manga from the 2000s. It's got the same big bubbly eyes plastered on every female character in ...
