  • A cute, short anime.
    The show is about girls trying to follow their dream of making a popular manga magazine. Well, it seems to be more Hanna's dream but, its still a cute story. It does have some stuff in it that seems to hint that it may used for 1 or 2 tips about comics but, its still a great 3-4 minute show!

  • Was short, but sweet
    I normally skip series that have the short 3-5 minute per episode format. but something about Mangirl appealed to me, so I gave it a chance.

    One thing I figured out right away is that you have to go in to watching a series like this with a different mindset compared to longer episode anime. Character development is almost assured to be missing as well as a compelling storyline.

    What I liked ...

    A good 'short' anime.
    I enjoyed this much more than i expected, it was 4 minutes a week of laughs. I wish it had been made into a full length 20 minute episode anime but i would still recommend it to anyone wanting to kill an 40minutes or so.

    Rather good, if a bit rushed
    A cute show with likable characters. Despite being short, rather enjoyable, if a bit rushed. It's interesting, I give it that. However it is a bit difficult to wait a week for three minutes. I wish the show had more of a fandom...I barely know anyone else who watches it besides myself and there's an incredible lack of fanart.

    These girls suck the oxygen out of the air at 100mph
    This is a disappointing case of a show's content not fitting its format. Watching episode 1 feels like being dumped into the second half of a more traditional 25 minute episode. We're given no sense of character or setting as raw plot is forced down our throats at machine gun pace. With too many characters and too much ground to cover per episode, the director's solution is to rattle off ...

    It's pretty funny, good for killing 5 or so minutes
    Mangirl! is a show i have begun watching because of my interest in Manga (makes sense lol ) anyway, i had heard a few days before it started that it is a 5 min long show (3min 30sec to be exact) so i wondered exactly what they were going to do with it.

    As only the first episode has aired as of this time i can only talk about what i've seen in the first episode.

    Episode 1 is nothing more than ...

    A show that may, theoretically, end up being about Manga
    One of the ironies of postmodern media is how cliche its preoccupation with the production of art has become; what began as a rebellion against convention has become convention itself, so much so that self-conscious programming often smacks as, well, lazy, except to the most otaku among us.

    Even more ironically, Mangirl! bypasses this pitfall completely by not really being about Manga. ...
