OtapediaHajimete no Gal


High schooler Junichi Hashiba isn’t exactly enjoying his youth. Not only is he considered a loser, but he’s also a virgin - the horror! The few (loser) friends he does have are sick of seeing Junichi fail at life, so they come up with a foolproof plan and pressure him into confessing his feelings to Yukane Yame, who just so happens to be one of the most fashionable gals in the school...and Junichi discovers maybe peer-pressure isn’t so bad after all. Yukane agrees to go out with him! His life is about to get a lot more exciting and confusing because Junichi isn’t quite prepared for all the surprises and adventures that are coming his way!


This romantic comedy was created by Meguru Ueno and began serialization in Kadokawa’s Monthly Shounen Ace magazine in 2015. The third volume of the manga was just released in March 2017.

Broadcast Information

It’ll begin airing in July 2017, though specifics on a date or broadcast stations are still unknown. It was also revealed that “Hajimete no Gal” will have 10 anime episodes, plus one OVA.


Junichi Hashiba

Junichi is a lonely loser who hates the fact that he’s still a virgin now that he’s in high school. He’s prone to giving up on his desires way too easily, plus he has a penchant for daydreaming just a tad bit too much. Unfortunately, he’s also really gullible and seems to believe just about anything anyone tells him.

Yukana Yame

Yukana is a trendy “gyaru” who’s gorgeous, well-endowed, and has a good number of friends. She can come off as cold or unforgiving to those who don’t know her well enough. She loves to tease and confuse others on purpose and is endlessly amused by catching others in embarrassing situations. Quite the unpredictable gal!

Ranko Honjou

Ranko is a trendy sun-kissed “gyaru” who is friends with Yukana! She finds immense satisfaction in using her voluptuous curves and womanly charm to make Junichi as uncomfortable as possible! She’s regarded as dangerous and is quite the touchy-feely sort of person.

Yui Kashii

Yui who is in Junichi’s class, is quite popular amongst those in her grade. She’s the level-headed and attractive overachiever with perfect grades who comes across as the ideal girlfriend.

Shizune Fujinoki

Shizune is childhood friends with Junichi. Despite her petite frame, she has quite the eye-catching bosom. While Junichi doesn’t remember, Shizune claims they promised to get married when they were children.


A stage event for the upcoming series took place at AnimeJapan 2017 on March 25. It featured voice actresses Yuki Nagaki (Yukana Yame) and Eri Kitamura (Ranko), where they spoke openly about how they feel about “Hajimete no Gal”.
