These wonderfully funny and irreverent comedy shorts work by both playing to and subverting stereotypes. Humor is the mainstay but there are little bits of character development as well. The short format ensures that the jokes never overstay their welcome. Gyaruko, Otako, and Ojou are the main characters but the little world of the show never feels shallow with the focus occasionally shifting to show us glimpses of other people, no generic background characters here. And speaking of characters, I have to mention Nikuko, great to see a character who is fat but also pretty and athletic. Great show, a small time investment, and that was time well spent.
I was sceptical about this show from it's blurb, but was pleasantly surprised. This show is a great short that explores the gross and mundane conversations of three high school girls and their classmates. If you really want to know yes, at least in my experience this show accurately represents some of the weird things girls talk about when they are close friends! You'll learn all about inverted nipples, tampons and insecurities. This is very refreshing. For a show with a concept like this it would've been very easy to descend into degrading humour and exploiting stereotypes however this show regularly subverts stereotypes and keeps the integrity of its cast. Oshiete! Gyaruko-chan is a slice of real talk that cuts through all the flowery bullcrap often pushed upon school girls in anime, breaks expectations and has a loveable cast!
Should you watch: Yes Oshiete! Gyaruko-chan is based off a 2014 manga. I thought it was very funny and eerily accurate, according to my female friends. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it to a girl though as there are a lot of sexual references, but they would still find it funny. STORY: This anime follows Galko, a huge boobed high school girl. About half the anime is about answering questions about common myths such as do big breasts have bigger nipples or do big boobs float. The other half is about the other main character Otako, if you can’t tell an Otaku, who is the polar opposite of Galko, teasing Galko. The episodes are episodic but each one manages to be very funny and because of Galko sexy (such as jogging and swimming). ANIMATION: Very colorful and top notch. Even auras and cute backgrounds every so often. You can’t get any better in a slice of life than this. I can’t get a 10 unless there are fighting scenes though. SOUND: There is a massive lack of music here. The intro and ending are very short, lame, but upbeat. The voice acting is notably done well. CHARACTERS: While the archetypes of big boob bimbo and small chested otaku girl have been used before, the whole joke here is that they are friends. It would have been nice to have more characters. They tried with Ojou, but she rarely has any lines and her part in the anime is mostly to come in late into the conversation and misunderstand something. I understand it is hard given it only has a 8 minute run time, so maybe it tuned out for the best to really only have 2 characters. OVERALL: I give it a 8 (top 25%). I found this anime to be very funny and it definitely helped that the main character has a huge rack. If you want to watch a sexy (medium amount) funny school anime that will even answers some questions about girls you didn’t know you had, this is perfect. If you’re a girl and mild ecchi is off putting then stay away.
