Wakaba*Girl is the story of Wakaba Kohashi and the friends she makes in high school. Wakaba is the daughter of a rich family, but has always admired the gyaru culture and is insanely excited to finally be a high school girl. She befriends the innocent Moeko Tokita, the erratic Mao Kurokawa, and the tom-boyish Nao Mashiba. Wakaba*Girl is from the same mangaka who does Kiniro Mosaic, Yui Hara.

Bonus New Year Day’s cards after the jump:
This OVA is an unaired episode 13 that was included on the Bluray release of the series. It’s listed as an OVA on MyAnimeList, and Special 1 on AniDB, so we just labeled it as an OVA.
One short note here about the episode title, Recorder and Red Randoseru. In Japan boys wear black randoseru backpacks, while girls wear red ones. Thus the title is alerting you that everyone’s been gender-swapped in this OVA.
Edit: And of course, since I last checked, MAL changed it to special. Oh well.
This OVA was a DVD bundled with the manga’s 6th volume special edition release, and is considered episode 2 in an ongoing series because of that. However, you do not need to have seen the first OVA to watch this one. Familiarity with the manga isn’t even all that important, as this is just a fun side story. The omake video is a bit over 2 minutes of Kobakawa art shown while music plays. We thought fans of the manga would want to see it, so we’ve included it in this release.
Chibi Manga continues to release translations of the manga and are up to chapter 7 now. If you enjoy this, go visit them and check it out.
As with the last OVA of this title, it’s unlikely this will ever get a BD release.
