Hajimete no Gal Anime Planned For 10 Episodes (Plus an OVA)


It looks like that first-time gal is only going to be with us for a short time.

A flyer from this year’s AnimeJapan event reveals that the upcoming Hajimete no Gal (First-Time Gal) anime series will receive an ten-episode run. This will be followed by a single-episode OVA. A specific première date is still up in the air, but the show will hit Japanese TV this summer.

Hajimete no Gal is based on Meguru Ueno’s manga of the same name. Hiroyuki Furukawa (My Wife is the Student Council President, Hybrid x Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia) is pulling double duty as director and character designer on the project at studio NAZ. Yūichirō Momose (Minori Scramble!, Sakura Internet Shinsei) is in charge of series composition for the series.

  • Junichi Hashiba: Shintarō Asanuma
  • Yukana Yame: Yuki Nagaku
  • Ranko Honjō: Eri Kitamura
  • Yui Kashii: Ayana Taketatsu
  • Shizune Fujinoki: Yui Ogura

Meguru Ueno’s Hajimete no Gal manga began publication in Kadokawa Shoten’s Monthly Shonen Ace magazine in November 2015. Two collected volumes have been released to date, with the most recent shipping on October 26.

The Hajimete no Gal anime was first unveiled in November. A batch of character design sheets were previously released to introduce the major cast members. You can check these out below:
