College student Chitose Karasuma is determined not to do boring things as she enters the adult world. To this end, this bad-mannered beauty barges into a facility that trains would-be voice actors and actresses, somehow landing a job at “Number One Produce,” a seiyuu agency managed by her older brother, Gojou. In Chitose’s mind, she’s poised for greatness, but finds herself at a loss when she continues to only get minor roles. As she clashes with other girls in the agency, including a cunning airhead and a girl with a Kansai accent, Chitose is about to learn that there’s more to succeeding in this competitive industry than she imagined.
Girlish number is an anime about the voice acting industry for anime, so if you have any interest in the production of anime, or any investment in the industry then maybe this is worth a shot.
Basically Chitoge is taken on for a really terribly made anime (like the asterisk war or sao) as a voice actress based on her looks and she tries to get into her career and do well. Unfortunately her personality is terrible and the whole thing is about the worst possible people working in the worst possible way.
For me it had a lot of boring parts but overall was a good experience and insight into a production cycle I would have otherwise known nothing about.
