College student Chitose Karasuma is determined not to do boring things as she enters the adult world. To this end, this bad-mannered beauty barges into a facility that trains would-be voice actors and actresses, somehow landing a job at “Number One Produce,” a seiyuu agency managed by her older brother, Gojou. In Chitose’s mind, she’s poised for greatness, but finds herself at a loss when she continues to only get minor roles. As she clashes with other girls in the agency, including a cunning airhead and a girl with a Kansai accent, Chitose is about to learn that there’s more to succeeding in this competitive industry than she imagined.(Source: ANN)


Girlish number is a Slice of Life anime about Chitose and her journey of becoming a voice actress. The anime is very slow based and its about the daily life of Chitose and her friends. How their friendship developed or how they became friends and their voice acting experience. Also how she adapted her quirks with the people around her. Which added a bit of comedy to the anime. The anime is more about life than a specific thing. Though the thing is I’ve seen much better anime with the same genre and about voice acting as well. I’m not sure how Girlish number stands out in comparison. Nevertheless its fine Slice of Life to check out if you like this genre.

Overall Rate: 6/10
