I originally skipped this when planning what to watch for Winter 2013 because of the title.

I was looking at for the Winter 2013 anime and wondered why the picture for Mangirl! had cute girls and stuff. So I went and looked at the series logo now and saw "まんがーる"... which is "mangaaru" romanised or "manga girl". Gotta love that wordplay xD

Definitely watching it now, lol.

I was going to completely avoid this because of the name giving trap vibes but turns out it's not.

Might watch.

For a second there I thought it would be about a couple of transgenders. But I guess the "Man" in Mangirl is short for Manga, huh?

Yeah I just realized it too since romanizing girl = gaaru

Huh didn't thought it was going to about some huge buff dudes who wants to be like mahou shoujos or some shit.

I'm not a fan of 4koma, but this sounds kind of interesting. Lol I was expecting some stupid comedy about transsexual girls, but I guess not. :D

Shame it's not called Man-Thing.

Nah, it's better to be called "Mangirl".

I'm glad it's not traps. Comedy + SoL is always welcome.

Based on the title, I wasn't expecting that synopsis at all.

I get Mangirl = manga girls. XD

Don't think I'll check it out... well actually, I'll probably watch the first episode anyways.

Honestly I thought it was going to be about futa's or something or people getting sex changes.

..But now I get the title. "MAN" from "manga" and "girl" just because they're girls. MANGIRL.
