Girlish Number Episode 12 Review – “Karasuma Chitose and…”

The last episode featuring our lovable yet annoying heroine!

(Spoilers in this review

It’s the final dubbing session for Kusure and the trains have stopped running. Chitose starts wondering if she should even bother going there since she made the mood awkward last time.

And then she receives a text message on thatappeveryoneisusingakaLINE
Oh, it’s Gojo-kun.
Not too encouraging.
But it’s encouraging enough!
She’s off to save the day!
And then the OP plays. Looks like she’s reclaimed her spot as the main heroine!

As Chitose runs, the girls talk about the possibility of her not showing up. Seems like everyone is waiting on only Chitose.

And the girls start sending messages to Chitose on LINE.
I guess Momoka was the first one and Yae sent this one?
This could only be Koto.
And this has to be Kazuha.
She looks depressed,
but the messages let her know that she has a job to do.
Unfortunately she went too fast and tripped.
Oh, wow, she’s wearing so little in this weather.
Our contender has gotten up! She’s not down for the count!
Despite this setback,
the main heroine
has to press on!

As she rushes towards the studio, Kuzu-P and Towada-AP try to see if they can reschedule the dubbing in case Chitose can’t make it. However, that’s not a feasible option due to outrageously high penalty fees if they were to do that.

Chitose, you are an amazing person for running during the winter time in a skirt.
Why are they giving her such dirty looks??

This episode really has all the characters talking about Chitose again, by the way. Gojo-kun basically secures his male harem, too.



The heroine has finally arrived! But now she has to figure out how to act in front of her peers and co-workers…vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h09m15s760vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h09m23s063vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h09m30s156vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h09m43s013vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h10m06s396

Of course Kuzu and her assistant manager are thrilled to see her, but what of the others? I would wager that this scene is the scene most of the viewers were waiting to see. We finally get to see Chitose acknowledge to everyone that she isn’t special, but that it’s okay and she’ll still try her best.

But first, we get this comedy gold from Kuzu-P.vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h11m50s902vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h12m24s659vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h12m27s960vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h12m30s995vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h12m36s849vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h12m42s400

Thankfully everyone accepts Chitose and her speech. Then they get to work! It’s a bit sad that she didn’t interact with Koto at all, though.vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h33m52s944vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h33m57s941vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h34m05s394vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h34m12s078vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h34m20s184vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h34m42s882vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h34m50s133vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h34m56s357vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h35m00s430vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h35m28s125vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h35m43s243vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h35m35s109vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h35m50s475vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h36m15s205vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h36m20s384vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h36m25s664vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h36m33s590vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h36m40s882vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h36m46s666vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h36m52s122vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h37m05s031vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h37m08s887vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h37m25s137vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h37m34s482

Her words seemed to have reached the light novel author, too. Hooray!vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h37m50s496vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h37m56s003vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h38m01s216vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h38m07s655vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h39m01s259vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h39m05s462vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h39m10s453vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h39m15s252

Meanwhile, the five girls are about to kill this dubbing session.vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h44m58s144vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h45m04s584vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h45m07s954vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h45m13s395vlcsnap-2016-12-29-00h45m20s799

The production staff decides to keep a scene that was good even though it would be cut. As a result, Kuzu-P and Towada-AP have to head out to beg. It’s tough being a producer, huh? All we’ve seen is them beg or kneel.

No, thank you, Chitose.
Oh, that name sounds so familiar.

Even though the pay for these promotion events is low and participating isn’t mandatory, Momoka and Kazuha opt to join Koto, Yae, and Chitose. They’re truly friends now, huh?



Oh, man, she’s so happy! Chitose looks so fulfilled!

And then Chitose wakes up after some deep sleep.
Gojo-kun had to arrive at the venue early so he couldn’t wake her up.
1 PM, huh? That’s pretty reasonable.
I actually think this is the cutest Chitose has ever been in this series even though her face kind of resembles that of a Charlie Bown character.
Onii-chan giving it to her straaaaight.
The assistant manager has arrived!
But he caanot save the day because he is not a hero.
Do people call him Checks? Because his eyebrow game is strong ✓
Kuzu-P also is late to the event.
They’re riding in a taxi! Or maybe an Uber. Are Ubers a thing in Japan?
Chitose stole his line and my heart because she’s been so cool this episode.
Awww, check her out. Apparently this is the image Gojo-kun has of Chitose on his phone.
And it alernates between the facade and the Chitose that we all know (shown above). When did phone technology get this amazing?
Kuzu-P holding off a legion of fanboys.
“M-my imouto is so different now”
“But it’s for the better.”
Is Gojo-kun really allowed to be there? In the make-up room? I guess it’s seperate from the dressing room?

The girls do a group huddle thing and Chitose says what’s expected of her. Everyone has a good time, though.


The performance goes swimmingly well. You should watch it for yourself!

Afterwards, everyone meets up at that swanky bar. The episode ends with Kuzu-P rushing into said bar in order to announce another project. They should be able to handle it this time, right?


Some shipping going on here in this group photo and I’m fine with it.

Wow, this series was something to review. I’m sorry this particular episode review was so heavy with pictures. It’s like 4:40 am and I have to go work so bleh.

…maybe I made even more work for myself by including so many pictures, you say? Maybe, maybe.

Anyways, I’m going to reviewing Girlish Number as soon as I can. I’m aiming for Friday since later today I have to watch the last episode of Flip Flappers. Take care, everyone!

  1. Not how I expected the series to end. Admittedly I didn’t get very far into it but reading what other people have said I kind of expected something more dramatic for an ending. Thanks for sharing.

    1. No, I thought the same thing for most of the series. And then towards the end I finally realized that the series was going for an ending that would be fluffier than what I originally expected. Oh, well.

      Thanks for dropping by!

  2. So the final episode seems to have been the fluffy, heartwarming type. Looking forward to that review!

    Btw, I’m curious: Have you decided which shows to watch next season?

    1. Mmm it was. I guess it’s for the better the show didn’t get too satirical. Thanks, I’ll try not to disappoint.

      Mmmm I have! I think. Alane asked me on Twitter earlier this week so I finally looked through the chart.

      Koabayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon
      Urara Meirochou
      Gabriel Dropout
      Minami Kamakura Koukou Johi Jitensha-bu
      BanG Dream!
      Schoolgirl Strikers: Animation Channel
      Nyanko Days
      Piace: Watashi no Italian
      Idol Jihen

      …are the ones I’ll do series reviews on. I’m thinking of not doing episode reviews next season since I’ve fallen behind on yuri visual novels. Will write a post about that soon.

      (And off the books I will be watching Demi-chan wa Kataritai, since my brother recommended it, and Seiren, since I watched Amagami SS back when I was a wee high school lad)

      1. I’m curious about the Dragon Maid one but I’ll wait before deciding whether or not to watch it. You seem to have a nice selection though – best of luck with them. Fair enough about episodics. They do eat up time and the VNs deserve some love too!

        As for me…I’m interested in ACCA but I won’t be watching it while it airs. I’ve started Natsume Yuujinchou and it seems promising so I’ll stick to that plus the episodics of Btooom.

        1. Alrightyyy. I’ll try to ‘suade you while I watch it. Or maybe I’ll warn you instead. We will see.
          It’s a lot, wahaha, but thanks. They doooo. They’re a bit underdeveloped compared to anime outside of Japan so I gotta promote!
          Mmm all sounds like good shows. Let’s watch Btooom together!
