The official website for the anime adaptation of Kenya Suzuki's Please Tell Me! Galko-chan (Oshiete! Galko-chan) manga revealed additional cast and staff members, a second key visual, and a promotional video on Saturday. The two-minute promotional video and its 30- and 15-second versions preview the opening theme "YPMA☆GIRLS" performed by the main cast.

The newly-announced cast members include:

The three main cast members are, from left to right in the image to the right:

Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Psychic Squad, Hayate the Combat Butler, OniAi) is directing the anime and handling the series composition at studio feel. Kenji Fujisaki (Blood Lad, Ozma, B-Daman CrossFire) is designing the characters. Ryo Takahashi is composing the music.

Additional staff includes:

The anime will premiere on January 8 as part of Tokyo MX's "Ultra Super Anime Time" block, and also air on BS11 and AT-X.

Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the original manga and plans to release the series in North America beginning on November 22. 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.
