Volume 1


Would you give up being human—or would you become... an idol? A trio of yakuza achieve the impossible and debut as idols—and become a big hit to boot! Under the guidance of their fiendish and overcontrolling boss, three former yakuza men undergo a complete makeover and debut as the back street girl idols "Gokudols." In their dressing room, they drink alcohol and gamble, but in front of their fans, they're idols through and through. The idol gag manga "without honor" that everyone's talking about has finally been released. Is this what Japan's idol industry has come to?!

Here's my take after reading the 9 of the manliest hardcore chapters of Back Street Girls by Jasmine Gyuh.

How would I start with this to not make it sound gross and creepy...

Back street girls is a story about 3 yakuza men who were forced to undergo gender re-assignment surgery to become the new and upcoming idols in Japan.

Yeah it's a premise that might turn you off in giving the story a shot,but let me tell you that once you got passed that stage, it is a great and entertaining manga to read.

For everyone who read the synopsis of this manga... I too, was one of the people who first read the synopsis when the anime adaptation got announced.

The idea, first and foremost, is... how should I put it... very unique. I mean I've never seen this kind of manga before. Anyway in that way I'd give a 10. I swear the Japanese have almost explored all kinds of ideas... No offence intended.

Anyway. The story as a whole is so far very funny. Well from reading the synopsis it's pretty obvious that it's something extreme... Die honourably or go to Thailand to change sex... Most of the read more

So...... I read it !!

I don't even know my actual opinion on this. It's such a weird thing to read. It's more like a right of passage then anything.

Comedy is out there. I at least was laughing once every chapter so there's that.

Only two things that actually kind of bugged me i guess.

. Overuse of having weird faces for the MC's. You'll know what i'm talking about if you read it.

. While yes it's a comedy and not meant to be taken seriously. I'm more just feeling bad for the three and wanting them to get away from the boss.

I also kind of read more
