Breath of Fresh Air

"This is definitely a breath of fresh air from mecha and fantasy, just in case you wanted a break. The truth is, even though this looks like the type of series where three girls prance around with no purpose, I'd be right to correct you. Honestly, there's not much of a plot, but it's interesting because it leaves you with mountains and rivers and valleys of questions.
The style is definitely one of its own, especially when it comes to the art. The music is bouncy and the ideas are original, and all the characters are very likable. Even the main antagonist you meet in episode 5 is awesome!
The first episode is a blow, but really all it's doing is introducing the characters. And then there's the slang, which isn't offensive, but pretty annoying. Once you progress through the series it's either you're used to it, or you've heard so much that you don't notice it. In either case, it's not bad after the first DVD. Speaking of which, there's a lot of swearing, a lot more than I expected for this series, and I suppose that's why it's 15+. The English VA's are fine, but I'm a dub lover, so you'll have to determine that for yourself ^_^; I also listened to the Japanese actors and they do phenominal work. The Aya voice is a lot better, anyway.
If you're looking for something fun and lighthearted without fan service, then here you go."

"Are you interested in fashion? Cute boys? Cliques? Lots of bright colors? If you do you will absolutely love this anime! If not, I suggest you move on and try something else. This is the kind of show I would have enjoyed when I was twelve years old. I'm no longer naive enough to believe a kick here, and a speech there, will suddenly change people. The main character Ran is a loud, obnoxious, cute, super strong girl who lives life all in a flurry. Her main concern is to have fun, fun, fun and more fun. She's the only character I really liked, all the other characters are quite boring and don't do much than stand around in the background unless a particular episode happens to revolve around them. Too bad for Ran-chan...if only this character had been in a different show...
The best thing about this show is the ending theme song, "Dakishimetai". It's slow, touching, and very sad. The animation itself is decent and colors very bright."

"This series is about the amazing adventures of Ran Kotobuki and her friends, who are high school freshmen and live in the hip, trendy Shibuya district of Tokyo. Ran is the self-proclaimed "world's greatest Gal" [SEE: "kogal" subculture], and she's more than willing to take on any challengers. She hangs out with her friends, Miyu (speaks in the third person most of the time) and Aya (excellent scholar). This trio has frequent run-ins with a pair of "teen idol" boys, Okahata (very cool and laid-back) and Yuya (spastic, major crush on Ran), a trio of heavily-tanned "ganguro" [SEE: "ganguro" facet of "kogal" subculture] gals, and a pair of gals from another district who are always making trouble.
Defying her family (mostly police officers, including her mom, dad & brother), Ran's goal in life is to live each moment to the fullest, and let the future take care of itself. Don't miss an episode; that's an ironclad rule for gals! My rating: 10/10."
This is very interesting, but very funny

"Super gals is definetly a girl directed anime with a good message, but quite a bit of swearing. But for all those that can handle that, it's pretty cool. Ran and the others are very cute and very funny and enjoyable to watch. If you can't stand prep-type voices, this might not be the anime for you, but if you can get past that, it's a good show. I recommend this for all gals out there! So, 5 stars is good for this. I'm getting number 2! Ja ne! ^_^"
