4.0 out of 5 stars Ran rules Shibuya Jan. 22 2004
I have to admit I hesitated over started this series for a while until there was nothing else out there that I really wanted and decided to give this a shot. Now, I have to wonder what I was hesitating for because this is one wild, funny, and at times, thought provoking anime.
I don't think I've laughed as much at any one time as I did when I first sat down to watch the first five episodes of this series. Just watching Ran do her thing and try to live her life as a gal, as her family tries to convince her to follow in the tradition of the family and become a police officer, is a real hoot. Ran also demonstrates a serious side as she tries to convice a fellow classmate not to sell herself short or to sell her body, that it's all right not to have much money and that you can still have fun.
All five episodes maintain an almost frantic pace except for the last one where things get a little serious and it seems like the group is going to be split up. However, Ran is never one to back off from a challenge or to give up on her friends without a fight.
All the characters in this show are great, from Ran, the terminal gal, her best friend, Miyu who's in love with Ran's police officer brother, to Aya, their new friend, who is the class brain and the last person anyone thought would be selling herself. The male characters are funny too, especially Yuya, whom Ran dubs as second place since he came in second place in a teen idol popularity contest. Rei, his best friend, is also hilarious, especially when he tried to caution Yuya away from Ran, whom he dubs as being trouble.
This anime is rated 15+, mainly for some violence and a bit of vulgar language. If you fall in the proper age group, this is one anime that I can highly recommend. You won't find any giant robots or attacking aliens here but just some good old fashioned crazy fun. I highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than just silly fun Jan. 8 2004
By Nicole
Yeah I admit, I was a little embarressed to be buying this anime. But it also looked so cute I just couldn't help myself. After watching the first DVD I was impressed. Not only is the Super Gals alot of fun but you also see a different side of the "Kogal" lifestyle. In reading the manga "Peach Girl" I was given a brief understanding of Kogals; they were stupid tanned bimbos who were easy and might sell themselves to you. In Super Gals I saw in Ran that not all Kogals are like that. She shows it's possible to have fun being a Kogal while also keeping her dignity. I also really enjoyed the fact that there are cultural notes on the backside of the poster. Something I have not seen many anime distributors do except for fansubbers and I always thought there should be more of instead of just trying to "Americanize" it for us. So yeah, all and all I really enjoyed Super Gals because not only is it fun but it actually provides some pop culture education about one side of Japan.
