HOUSTON, JULY 9, 2015 – Girls just want to have fun, but everyone’s sure to have a great time with  Sentai FilmworksWakabaGirl!, as part of its Summer 2015 anime season lineup.  Based on the original manga by Yui Hara (Kin-iro Mosaic), this fashion conscious comedy series follows the adventures of Wakaba Kohashi, who, despite her well-to-do upbringing, finds herself fascinated with the trendy "gyaru" fashion subculture.  Prepare for an odyssey of self discovery as Wakaba and her three best friends find that there’s more to being in style than just wearing a certain kind of clothes.  It’s all about attitude and learning who you really are inside in WakabaGirl!


Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya veteran Seiji Watanabe will be directing the series, from screenplays by Jukki Hanada (No Game No Life, Student Council’s Discretion, Yozakura Quartet). Character designs will be adapted by Kana Ishida (Aquarion Evol, (The) irregular at magic high school), and up-and-coming studio Nexus (Santa Company, Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry) is in charge of animation production.


WakabaGirl! is scheduled for a July 2015 release and will soon be available through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
