Please Tell Me! Galko-chan Episodes 1 & 2 Review

Synopsis by Crunchyroll: "Galko, Otako and Ojou are a trio of unlikely friends in high school with three very different perspectives. Each episode embarks on a day in the life of a trendy girl, an otaku, and a lady, as they discuss their “girl problems".

What can I say about Please Tell Me! Galko-chan? 7:50 minutes of essentially Chicken Noodle Soup but in anime form. The first two episodes I believe explain the whole premise of the show. Each episode so far, starts with a panel asking a question that are myths or innocent questions about girls. After that, the scenes are comprised of the girls and sometimes guys interpretation of the question. Warning: the questions can get weird as the show goes on.

Story: Personally I am not a big fan of this show on a story level. Its not as interesting as other slice of life shows that I have seen. The storyline is based on the panels before the scenes and it doesn't really deviate from there. I know that the show is about 8 minutes long and there is not a lot of time for development, however, I'm not as invested in the story or characters. Also the subject matter of the show didn't give me interest, mostly because I was embarrassed by the questions they asked. They remind me of girls in middle school and high school that I used to see. I am out of those teenage years now so the show escapes me and maybe my age demographic.

The  artwork is pretty. It has a lot of pastels and girly by nature. The characters are all cutesy, even the guys, and it does add to the subject matter of the show as a whole.

Overall I give this show a 2 out of 5. I think its a nice little show to get people who are new to anime to gradually experience the chaos and weirdness some shows can portray. I think the show's intent is to laugh at some common myths or facts about girls and what they go through puberty, while also showing the boys' reactions and answers to some of the myths and facts. This show wasn't for me but I can say it was interesting to watch.
