The moment I saw the first episode of Comic Girls, I know that this series is a must watch for me. It looked like your typical moe anime that we get in every season, but its actually much more than that. The premise was interesting. I had seen quite alot of ‘creating manga’ animes before and I really like them. Even though this anime is common, the level of realness made this anime different from its predecessors. What I meant is that this anime doesn’t shy away in sharing the real problems and happenings the mangaka’s faced in their daily life as their work on their manga.

Another real thing is the fact that the main character actually failed alot before getting a break, compared to her peers. It just shows that no ones exempted when it comes to failures. I really really like that about this series.
Unfortunately, the premise is not solid as I want it to be. This is a moe highschool slice-of-life anime, so the characters are still in adolescent age and are all girls. They are also manga artists. That’s…unrealistic. Still, this infos worked well with the anime’s storyline so all is well.

For the characters, I like all the main protagonists but my fav would be Kaos-sensei. She’s…too real, it was like seeing my ego/other self as a human character. Hah! She’s quite unique. Its quite clear she is into yuri and ecchi stuff, so seeing her reactions during those moments are priceless. And bruh, she sucked in writing stories. I understand really well why she always get rejected. Don’t get me wrong, I love her and she draws really well, but yeah, her stories sucked. Seeing Kaos-sensei so flawed in the beginning definitely made the ending really worthwhile. Her growth throughout the series was really fun and touching to watch. It wasn’t just her, but also the other protagonists as well.

Koyume was the bright and bubbly one, who makes shoujo mangas. Tsubasa was the tomboyish rich girl, who loves and makes shounen manga. And lastly, Ruki, the most ‘normal’ girl who gives off sexy vibes, makes alot of ecchi/borderline hentai shoujo manga. Even though they got serialized earlier than Kaos-sensei, they also faced alot of struggles along the way. Their development all through out the series was really nice to watch. Them being together and helping each other as much as they can made their journey alot more easier and brighter. All of their personalities mashed up really well, which created alot of interesting and funny reactions on some situations.
The supporting characters didn’t disappoint. Even though, in number, they are quite few, they were memorable enough and supported the main characters really well. I specifically like the teacher, cuz she’s so cute when drunk and when she’s on full otaku mode. I love it.

Before we move on a different topic, I want to talk about the yuri baiting all through out the series. Like I said above, Kaos loves yuri, that’s why seeing her reactions during the yuri actions was really priceless. But I did get disappointed cuz Kaos didn’t get enough yuri scenes herself. I kinda notice that she seemed to be shipped alot with Ruki, but their relationship didn’t grow much. Uuugggghhhh…frustrated me. I mean, bruh, Tsubasa and Koyome’s relationship blossomed well, even though they are clearly not together, their scenes together gives me alot of yuri happy vibes. I want Kaos and Ruki moments too. Sigh.

Anyway, now that I let that out. Let’s move on.

The art and animation of this series was surprisingly good. I didn’t really expect anything from this anime, but bruh, everything was consistent. From the first episode to the last, i didn’t see any bad art or animation at all. I LOVE IT. I also like the fact that the color scheme and brightness of this anime was smooth and soft. It was not hard in the eyes, and it maintained the heavy MOE-ness of the series. Nexus studio did really well in animating this anime. Everything is visually appealing.

Overall, this anime is amazing. It had everything I want for a moe anime in spring season. I definitely recommend this to people who likes this kind of stuff. It’s worth it.
