The upcoming anime adaptation of Hokkaido Gals Are Super Adorable will premiere this October as part of the Fall 2023 anime season.
Hokkaido Gals Are Super Adorable! takes the recent trend of popular gals (or gyaru if you’re cultured) and puts a local flair on it, extolling the charm points of the Hokkaido region of Japan. For those who don’t know, Hokkaido is the northernmost prefecture of Japan and also the largest since it consists of Japan’s entire northernmost island.
You can check out the latest trailer below:
Tsubasa Natsukawa has just moved from Tokyo to Hokkaido, in the middle of winter. Not quite appreciating how far apart towns are in the country, he gets off the taxi at the next town over from his destination so he can see the sights around his home. But he is shocked when he learns the “next town” is a 3 hour walk away. But he also meets a cute Dosanko (born and raised in Hokkaido) gyaru named Minami Fuyuki who is braving negative 8 degree weather in the standard gyaru outfit of short skirts and bare legs!
The manga is available to read through manga publisher Shueisha’s website MangaPlus.
