Girlish Number- Random Wednesday Number 1
It’s finally time to launch a series I first hinted at over three years ago! If you need a breakdown over what this concept is, check out my post here.
Girlish Number is an anime inspired by the serial novel of the same name back in 2016.
With further ado, here’s my thoughts.
Spoilers: None, really.
Genre: Slice of Life.
Synopsis: Girlish Number is a pleasant diversion from the typical anime I watch. It centers around the main character, Chitose Karasuma. A peppy energetic teenager aspiring to make it big in the acting world. However, she is stuck with low-level voice acting jobs such as one liner gigs (she even comments on how she is a thief because she gets paid to say just one line.). Along the way we meet more popular and successful actress who I assume will be more involved as the ladies star together in a big upcoming show. The episode ends with Chitose finally landing a leading role. Could it be the big break she has always wanted?
Verdict: So I wont be assigning a score like in traditional reviews. Instead, I will discuss if I am likely to continue watching the series. And despite what I assumed going into the show based solely on the name, I am actually very intrigued to continue watching this show. The colors are bright and keep you engaged. Chitose is actually an enjoyable character to lead the show. There is also a dude.
If I finish the series, I will do a more in-depth review. In the meantime, if you have seen Girlish Number, let me know what you thought. I cannot ask for recommendations because it will be random.
