I'm aware this is not a new manga but hey, what can I say? Gals! is one of those mangas that won a place in my heart years ago.
Since it has already been completely published I'm just going to write a review for the whole series.

Ran Kotobuki is a gal. And what is a gal you may ask? Good question! Well, you see, if by any chance you go to Japan and visit the popular place known as Shibuya you will find yourself surrounded (mark my words: SURROUNDED) but tons of girls dressed in the height of fashi

This rating and review are for all completed volumes.

Ingat-ingat dulu baca komik ini sebagian pinjam di perpustakaan SMP (ya, di perpus SMP saya ada banyak komik) dan sebagian pinjam dari teman yang memang niat mengoleksi.

Ceritanya ringan dan penuh humor komikal khas remaja, terutama Ran si begundal berangasan itu. lol. Hal yang paling mendapat porsi terbesar di kisah ini adalah persahabatan--dan cinta, tapi sepertinya itu nomor dua. Saya suka quote-quote yang sering dilontarkan Ran mengenai per

I love this manga so far. I saw the show first and I wanted to see how similar and different they are from each other. The manga is just as great as the show. While the manga is funny with exciting adventures and plots it also has touching and serious moments. The book sends out a good message for girls to follow their hearts and respect themselves. Ran is a true role model for girls. This manga should inspire all girls to follow her words and listen to them carefully. While this manga sends out ...more

gilak nggak sih zaman SD aku baca komik beginian.

tapi menurutku ceritanya rame banget sih, meski cewek banget.
kocak, terkadang geje, yang bikin betah itu kehebohan gambarnya sama ceritanya yang cukup menarik.

dulu juga pernah nonton anime-nya, jadi tambah suka deh sama manga ini :))

the story about a gals girl name Kotobuki Ran from Hounan High School in Tokyo that really energic and a little deliquent. She have a big brother name Yamato, he is a police officer.
Meh. There's hardly a story here. I'll read the next volume and decide then whether to continue or not.
