Gals! is obviously one of the lesser-known animes and mangas... Has anyone else here heard of it? I was just wondering, since I plan on dressing up as Ran from the series at the next convention I have to opportunity to go to ^_^ especially since I am kinda a real-life kogal... :crylaugh:

I was following the Gals manga in Ribon for about a year, before it ended recently. *sniff* I haven't seen the show yet, but I heard that ADV acquired the rights. Supposedly it'll be on DVD in the next year, and I'm definitely buying it.

Who are your favorite characters? I personally like Aya and Otohata Rei. They're so cute together.

A Ran cosplay would be cool ^_^ Which convention are you wearing it at?

I am not sure yet, since I am in Indiana (Not too many conventions here!) and I am under 18, so I can't just skip out of the house. But I am defienently planning on going to one! My favorite characers are Ran and Aya. Where do you buy Ribon? I read the mangas online, but haven't been able to get a back issue of Ribon anywhere!

Ha ha ha ha, I love Gals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XD It is sooooo funny and even heartwarming..... ^o^

My favorite is TATSUKICHI~~~!!! He is soooooooooooo funny and cool...... I want to say "Ran, don't you realise how cool he is???? Treat him better~!!!! Even if he is a monkey!!" Ha ha ha.

I don't like Rei though. He is so mean, he always makes me angry, haha ^_^ Nii is cool though, and Mamirin and of course RAN!!! (She is my 2nd favorite XD) Also Sayo is sooo cute... And Naka-sen is so funny...

I'd better stop their cause I'll list every character as my fav ^_^;;

I have only seen 2 of the anime episodes.. and I have the manga up to volume 9. 10 is the last one though, right?? *cries* But I guess I can see why it would end.. Since the gal styles aren't popular anymore.... T_T

Anyway Gals rocks~~~!!!

I love the artwork!! ^_^ It's really cute, but I haven't had the chance to read the manga or get my hands on the fansubs.. I'm still working on getting through the Chobits manga first. ^_^

Ah, I LOVE the opening theme to this show!! I haven't gotten a change to read or watch it yet either, but I downloaded the opening. I really wanna see it!! It looks so cute and fun!

*perks* Hmm, anyone have any good links where I could find pics or something? I've never heard of this series ^_^

I LOVE this series. :D It's awesome, I saw some of it at Foothill anime and it was great!! XD Anyways, my friend runs a Ribon ML on AOL (for any of you AOL users that want to join, send me an email), where she scans a lot of the images from it. I know you can buy a subscription for it at Sasuga but it's REEEEEEALLY expensive. ;__; Anywho, for those of you who haven't see it, here ya go!

WoooHooo! Gals Cosplay! This has to be one of my favorite manga/anime in recent years. Ran just cracks me up, and I just LOVE Ni. Anyways good luck on the cosplay. I did a Gals, inspired costume (http://www.paper-wings.org/gallery/kogal.html) it was fun but no onw knew I was even IN costume. The bad thing was I found the refence picture AFTER the costime, now that's scary.

If you wanna really good site on GALS, i know one on italian website...; well i don't remember the url...

GALs is my favortie manga AND anime (since the anime is less beautiful than the design of Mihona-sensei)
Ran is my favorite coz she's like me ^^ (but i like Mami too) for men i like Tatsukichiiiiiiii (yeah ^^ monkey man!!) and Niiikun.

take a look: this is me as Ran-pyon ^^ with the real atsuko bootsu, fake nail, and Hawaju (it's no parapara contest *geez*)

it was fun but no onw knew I was even IN costume.

I feel ya!! I did an Aya inspired get up at A-kon, and even Kevin Lillard didn't take my pic and he takes pics of everything!!! As I was chatting with him, he was kind of looking at me like, "Is she in costume?" It made me just want to scream, "TAKE MY PICTURE ALL READY!!!!" ^^;; But he didn't, boo~

The GALS outfits are so cute I could die X_X Their clothes are seriously an inspiration to my wardrobe *_* Of course, I try not to be TOO gaudy, but none the less I accessories like mad, and of COURSE will never be caught withough platforms!!

(even if I'm 1m80 height with ;_;)
