Series about high school girls has anime in the works

Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Monday that it has licensed its first full-color manga Please Tell Me! Galko-chan (Oshiete! Galko-chan). The company plans to print the series in single volumes starting on November 22, 2016.

Seven Seas describes the story

Galko-chan always speaks her mind, which may not be the wisest decision in all cases, but it's never short of entertaining! Meet the exuberant and unbelievably busty high schooler, Galko, as she traverses the ups and downs of adolescence with spirit and verve, alongside her best friends--the anti-social loner, Otako, and the unpredictably honest, Ojyo.

Each of the girls' names refers to their type. Galko is a pun on gyaru or gal, which is a term used to describe a type of street fashion where women in their teens and 20s bleach their hair and wear highly decorated nails and a lot of makeup. Otako is a pun on otaku, and Ojō refers to a girl who is a daughter of a high-class family.

Suzuki launched the manga on Kadokawa's ComicWalker digital manga service in June 2014, but published it on Twitter before that. Kadokawa released the manga's 60th chapter on Friday. The publisher also released the manga's second compiled volume digitally and in print on June 23.

An anime adaptation has been green-lit and will premiere in January.
