Girlfriend beta is anime based on a mobile phone game. Its about an all girls highschool… though its a bit disappointing in terms of yuri. Its all about friendship and how the characters support each other. What was interesting was the fact that not all the girls are friends or acquaintances. Some of the characters don’t know each other which makes the anime a bit realistic. The story is a slice of life so there wasn’t a point at the end of it. Its just values through out the anime. It wasn’t the best moe I’ve came across. I’ve seen better. What cracked me up though was this character with miss monochrome persona, she was very funny. Other than that the anime was Average.

Overall Rate: 6/10
