Wakaba Kohashi is a high school girl with enough money to buy anything but she wants something money can’t necessarily buy. She admires the ‘Gyaru” fashion subculture and craves a “normal” school life. Three girls who become her friends, teach her the way of being a normal high school girl. Moeko Tokita, is a pure and kind girl who wants to help Wakaba experience a fun high school life. Mao Kurokawa. is a energetic and mischievous girl who messes with Wakaba but wants to help her be a normal girl. Nao Mashiba, is a sophisticated and stern girl who also wants to help Wakaba experience being a normal high school girl. Going through their school days, these girls learn things about each other while trying to have fun at the same time.

Pros +

  • Lots of Funny, Crazy, and Cute moments! 
  • Characters interaction with each other and the environment are original at times. ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Time was spent wisely on each Episode☆☆☆☆☆
  • Although a 10 minute show, I felt like I got to know the characters like I would on a full length show. ☆☆☆☆☆

Cons –

Wakaba with Her Crows and Mao Freaking Out ☆
  • Although Cliche’s

         felt nice,

         the ending

         was just

         a bit

         too predictable.

☆ 9.8/10! ☆ I didn’t like it. I LOVED IT! 

Final Comments: Wakaba Girl, is a funny, silly, cute, lovable, adorable, awesome, and wonderful show. Unfortunately, each episode is only 10 mins each. I honestly thought the show was going to be a unmemorable show due to it being short. But Wakaba Girl was able to pull off each episode. No episode felt useless or boring. The time was spent wisely and efficiently. I was very amazed that it was able to do that with only 10 minutes. I felt like I got to know each character more than some full length shows. The characters are cliche but they are too lovable and made me think “Wow, cliche done right”. Although, the ending was just a bit too predictable. Wakaba Girl deserves to be a full length show instead of 10 minutes. You have to watch it if you love “MOE”! If you want a serious story then this may not be your cup of tea. But all in all, this show is just enjoyable! I hope a Season 2 will appear one day. The show is almost perfect! I’m definitely a fan now! WAKABA GIRL! IM NOW A WAKABA BOY! – Richard K. Moe
