Although he has reached the spring of his youth, Junichi is finding it harder than expected to get a girlfriend, but that is due in no small part to his friends brazen habit of reading dirty mags in class. However, in order to “help” him, his virgin friends submitted a love letter in his name to the resident gal of his class, Yame Yukana. However, while she may dress like a gal, this tough-looking girl is actually as pure as the snow.
Deceptive looking in so many different ways, My First Girlfriend is a Gal introduces audiences to an rather rare beast in anime – the gyaru. The Gyaru is a fashion-forward woman, often with bleached hair and dramatic makeup that are occasionally seen as loose women. Of course, My First Girlfriend is a Gal and its similar anime recommendations prove that it is not such.
For Fans of Slutty-Looking Yet Pure Girls
B Gata H Kei
Yamada is beautiful and just entering high school, but she has one strange goal – to have causal sex with 100 men. The problem is that she is afraid of being teased for being a virgin. Upon happenstance, she stumbles upon a solution to her problem, the soft-spoken (also virgin) Kosuda. The problem is, he knows nothing about sex and is a shy gentleman about it.
If there is one anime that consistently feels similar to My First Girlfriend is a Gal, it is B Gata H Kei. While Yukana doesn’t act perverted, she acts the same way as Yamada when it comes to love and anything more. However, Junichi has the dirty jokes of the show covered with his attitude while Yamada sets up the dirty jokes in B Gata H Kei.
High School of the Dead
It happened suddenly. The dead rose and threw Japan into chaos. In the high school of Takashi Kimuro, the situation forced him to kill his bitten best friend and protect the man’s girlfriend, Rei. As they narrowly escape the school with a few others, they find the real survival just beginning.
Both of these shows are notable for their women with just ridiculously sized busts. While almost every girl in the show has a sexualized body, the main girl doesn’t act that way at all while some other girls do. Of course, the major difference between these shows is that one is a usual school life show while the other is about the zombie apocalypse.
Please Help Me! Galko-Chan
Galko, Otako, and Ojou are three friends that seem like they have nothing in common. However, while Galko is a gyaru on the outside and pure on the inside, Otoko is plain-looking but horribly sarcastic, and Ojou is wealthy but absent-minded, somehow their friendship works.
What these shows have in common is the gyaru. Both Yukana and Galko both have the bleached hair and fashionable appearance typical of gals, but while people see them as experienced, they are both actually quite pure girls.
For Fans of Undeserving Harem Kings
After being abandoned by his love-addled parents, Eita Kidou is a bit put off by romance. It also causes him to see through the love confession of one, Masuzu Natsukawa.

Both My First Girlfriend is a Gal and Oreshura are about a boy that suddenly gets his first girlfriend. Of course, it ends up shocking everyone around him. However, the relationship isn’t quite as traditional as most relationships. While Oreshura isn’t about gals, it does feature a pretty dominating female lead not completely unlike a typical gal personality.
Rosario + Vampire
Unable to get into any other high schools, Tsukune Aono’s parents are thrilled when Youkai Academy accepts him. However, the problem is that Youkai Academy is a high school for monsters, not humans. With being eaten by monsters being a very real possibility, Tsukune must work hard to keep his humanity a secret. However, when the most attractive girl in school and resident vampire becomes attracted to his blood, he finds an ally and perhaps a romantic interest.
Ignoring that every girl in Rosario + Vampire is some sort of supernatural creature, both shows follow the same tropes. You have have a dense, undeserving harem king and a series of beautiful woman that are all attracted to him for what appears to be no reason.
Ten years ago, Raku Ichijou made a promise with a childhood friend. In the present day, this heir apparent to an intimidating yakuza family continues to wait for his friend’s return while trying to be as uninvolved in family matters as possible. However, when a rival gang invades his family’s turf, the family leaders decide Raku should start a romantic relationship with the other chief’s daughter, Chitoge.
Both Nisekoi and My First Girlfriend is a Gal are about two boys that are kind of strong-armed into a relationship through various circumstances. In both shows, they are in their first relationship ever blonde haired women with a strong personality. Both shows also feature fringe elements like yakuza or gyaru.
For Fans of Perverted Comedy
Kanade Amakusa’s high school life should have been normal. Instead, he is cursed with Absolute Choice. This curse means that every so often, he will be forced to make a choice, unfortunately, both choices are often completely terrible and completely public.
Almost everyone one of the choices in NouCome are perverted somehow, meaning that if you enjoyed the sexually charged comedy in My First Girlfriend is a Gal, this is probably the best comedy show you could follow up with. While NouCome isn’t really a romance, it has plenty of different women and personalities within for a fine harem.
Ousai Private Academy used to be an all-girls school, but Takatoshi Tsuda is among one of the first male students. However, on his way to class, he is stopped by the student president who needs a male’s point of view in order to better accommodate new male students. As such, she ends up making him the vice president of the student council. However, this seemingly upstanding institution is not quite what it seems.
SYD is the king of dirty joke anime series. However, while it is more about jokes, My First Girlfriend is a Gal is more about imagined situations. Essentially the character roles are a little reversed in this show where the girl is actually the perverted one and the guy is actually normal.
The Hachimitsu Private Academy has always been a prestigious all-girls school that is prized for its high quality education and ridged discipline. However, they are now accepting boys as well as girls. With a mere five boys in the schools, they think they are the luckiest men in the world. That is, until they get caught peeping and have their personal freedoms taken away in the brutal prison below the school.
When you think of perverted anime these days, you think of Prison School. However, My First Girlfriend has some situations that are pretty good, but ifyou want something a little more graphic and hilarious, this will be the way to go.
