Please tell me! Galko-chan / Oshiete! Galko-chan
Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans
Genre: Comedy, School, Slice of Life
First Aired: Winter 2016, 12 short-form episodes
Summary: Galko is a good-natured popular girl in her class that speaks her mind while also having a sensitive side. Otako is close friends with Galko. The two are opposites as Otako is a small and frumpy girl that sits in the back of class. Ojou, an airhead from a rich family, is the third member of the friendship. She maintains higher than average grades despite appearing clueless most of the time.
Please tell me Galko-chan is a simple anime that follows the daily lives and conversations of the friendship trio. Their various discussions cover a variety of topics including myths abour girls’ bodies. Some of the conversations are immature and silly while others are surprisingly educational. Even though the series is focused on Galko, Otako and Ojuo, several additional characters show up occasionally, including a trio of teenage boys on Galko’s class that talk about the exact topics you’d imagine. This anime is fairly basic in most ways, but the characters are enjoyable, the conversations are humorous and interesting, and it is a short-form series you can finish in under an hour.
You might enjoy this if: Inappropriate conversations that lean toward crude and mature make you laugh. Imagine a short-form version of Seitokai Yakuindomo and you have Please tell me Galko-chan. If you want to take it several steps further you should watch (Shimoneta) A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist.
You might not like it if: You’ve had enough of the high school anime scene.
Note to the Viewer: Pay attention during the intro as you’ll get to know more about the characters during this part of each episode.
