Tomo-chan Review – Could Have Better

March 11, 2023

Key Takeaways from my review of Tomo-chan is a Girl:

  • My thoughts and opinions on this anime
  • To help you decide if this anime is for you or not

So this anime… I quite enjoyed it to be honest. It presented an interesting new dynamic between the main duo. And I kind of dig the direction it went with regard to romance. It also had some really entertaining characters like Misuzu and Carol. However, it does have a few flaws. I am a sucker for rom-coms so I enjoyed watching Tomo-chan is a Girl but I do acknowledge its flaws.

So welcome back to another one of my reviews. Today I am talking about Tomo-chan is a Girl! As always, these are my opinions alone and they are subjective. So feel free to disagree. With that said though, let’s get on the review.

Tomo-chan Is a Girl Episode 1 Review: Failure As A Girl


So we have three childhood friends, and two of them start liking each other as they grow up. Now, the problem is, the girl is basically a tomboy and our dumb MC had no idea that she was a girl till middle school. As their feelings towards each other develop, they desperately start thinking that confessing will destroy their current relationship as best buds and make things awkward between them. Which is fair, in my opinion, totally not based on personal experience or anything.

The plot is decent. I won’t say it is bad, it could have been really good though… it is just lacking something. Right now, it is just decent. Not too good, not too bad. Although, I will appreciate for introducing Carol in a really cool way. She appears and slowly becomes a main character before you even realize it. Again, it is quite entertaining for sure.

Now, this is where things get interesting. Tomo-chan has some amazing characters. Misuzu is one of the best “best friend” type characters in a rom-com. I love the dynamic she has with every other character. Carol and Misuzu kind of hard carry this anime, without them, it would have been so much worse. Carol and her mother are just goofballs, they are funny as hell.

My complaint is that we don’t really get character development for Tomo and Jun. Jun did get a bit of character development at the end of episode 10. Yes, we get a lot of their monologs, which makes their perspective on things clear but they are kind of the same people from episode 1 till episode 10. I hope Tomo and Jun get a little more development in the remaining 2 episodes.

Had to put this in. Misuzu’s death stares are something….

Animations and Soundtracks

The animations and art style are fairly average. Pretty much what you’d expect from a normal rom-com. Tomo-chan has pretty good soundtracks though. The opening is pretty nice and I absolutely love the ending theme. It is sung by Tomo’s VA for the most part but, in episode 10, the song is sung by Jun’s VA and the lyrics are modified to fit him. Which is pretty cool.


Well here are my final scores for Tomo-chan is a Girl:

  • Plot – 6/10
  • Characters – 8/10 (scoring it this high for Misuzu and Carol)
  • Animations – 7/10
  • Soundtracks – 8/10
  • Enjoyment – 7/10
  • Could have been great – 10/10
  • Overall – 7/10

So yes, while I have my qualms with this anime, I did enjoy watching it. Again, those were my opinions on it though, yours may differ. Let me know what you think in the comments. And I will take my leave here. See ya!!
