    there was a princess grieving over the deaths of her mother and father.

    Before this princess appeared a prince traveling upon a white horse.

    His appearance gallant, and his smile gentle, the prince enveloped the princess in the scent of roses, and wiped away her tears.

    "Little one bearing up alone under grief, please lose not thy strength and nobility when thou growest up."

    "As a token of this day, please retain this."

    "Pray, shall we meet once more?"

    "This ring should guide thee to me."

    Was the ring from the prince meant as an engagement ring?

    TV Tokyo (ended 2002)
    Ran Kotobuki is not just your average teenager living in the popular Shibuya shopping district; she considers herself the world's greatest GAL! Even though she's the daughter of a family of police officers, Ran prefers to just live the teenager life by her own rules, along with her friends Aya and Miyu. They go shopping, dance and sing, dress and accessorize, talk about and date GL guys, and every once in a while chase down petty criminals.

    A fun shojo comedy about the Tokyo kogal culture by Mihona Fujii, Super GALS! is produced by Studio Pierrot, the folks who've done Saiyuki and Great Teacher Onizuka, and later went on to produce the immensely popular Naruto and Bleach anime.

    Also known as: Super GALS! Kotobuki Ran Number of Episodes: 52 Originally broadcast in Japan: Spring 2001 – 2002. Season 1: Super GALS! Season 2: Super GALS 2: The Heart of Shibuya Availability: Both series are officially licensed and are available as Box Sets. Season 1 was dubbed into English, and released by ADV Films in 2003-2004. Season 2 was originally released by Enoki Films, but is now distributed by Right Stuf with English Subtitles in 2006. Manga: GALS! has 10 volumes released in Japan and most of these are now available in the US. Rating: This series has not aired on regular US television, but ADV rates this a 15+. It's got quite a bit of trash-talking language (like witch with a B, and the S word), bloodless violence (people get into fights, muggings, and crimes), and a few adult situations. It'd probably be considered TV-14 if it aired in the US.

    Music Opening Theme: H*I*M Music and Lyrics: Kana Arrangement: Akio Noyama Vocal: dicot Ending Theme: I want to hug you Lyrics: Ikuno Takagi Music & Arrangement: Isao Yoshida Vocal: Jungle Smile

    Cast of CharactersThe Shibuya GALS Ran Kotobuki, age 16, a fiery, but popular gal with orange hair with a dark red highlight. She considers herself the greatest Gal in Shibuya, and is revered among the local community for going out of her way to help others. She enjoys living in the here and now, and has a philosophy which she terms the Ironclad Rules for Gals. She enjoys shopping, playing, and eating. But such a life leaves her dirt poor, so she sometimes, no, usually, charms her guy friends into treating her. When she's not energetic, she's sleeping in homeroom. Nickname: Ran-Pyon Miyu Yamazaki, age 16, is Ran's buddy with the blonde hair. She was a former gang leader, but after Ran's brother Yamato set her straight, she ascribes to the philosophy of the Gals, trying to do good whenever she can, and she has a big crush on Yamato! She is a pretty good baker of cookies, and talks about herself in the third person. Aya Hoshino, age 16, is the gal with the long black hair. A top academic student, she completes the trio of Gals when Ran and Miyu help her out with a social situation in the first episode. She is quite shy when it comes to expressing her romantic feelings, especially when Rei Otohata starts being friendly to her. She tends to follow along with the other Gals on things, but learns to figure out her own feelings and desires thanks to her friends. Nickname: Aya-ppe. ♥ Shibuya guys Rei Otohata, age 17, is the guy with the dark hair from Meisho High. He ranks #1 on the Super High School Grand Prix, and is ever so popular, but he has an aloof attitude most of the time, tending to not care when girls give him affection. He works part-time at a record store. He goes by Otohata most of the time. Yuya Asou, age 16, the blond guy from Meisho High, and ranked #2 on the Super High School Grand Prix. Although he's sought out by all the girls, Yuya forgoes that, and has a crush on Ran instead. But that love goes unrequited because of his shyness, and he is only relegated to being a Nice Guy (more than a friend, less than a boyfriend) in Ran's eyes, especially when Tatsuki arrives, he loses his chance to be Ran's boyfriend. Nickname: Second Place (Nii) (from Ran), Bro or Brother (from Tatsuki). Tatsuki Kuroi, age 16, is the dark-skinned guy with the spiky blond hair. He's originally from the Machida area on the outskirts of Tokyo. He is the self-proclaimed king of para para dancing. He's very friendly and easy-going, and soon becomes Ran's boyfriend after a casual confession. Nickname: Tatsukichi, Machida Black, Monkey Boy.

    Kotobuki Family Yamato Kotobuki, age 25, is Ran's older brother, and a police officer at the Shibuya office near the train station. He tries to keep Ran in check if she's causing trouble nearby. Even though he gets annoyed by the Gals hanging around his police box (office) all the time, he does care for Miyu and enjoys her affections. Sayo Kotobuki, age 14, is Ran's younger sister who wears a hat almost all the time, so she looks like a Girl Scout. She aspires to become a policewoman, and thus becomes the good daughter of the family. But for now she is a Junior Detective and role-plays scenes from her favorite show Odaiba Cop with her boyfriend Masato. Nickname: Sayo-chan. Catchphrase: Datchu! (You bet!) Taizo Kotobuki, age 51, is Ran's father and the Chief of Police in the Shibuya district. He's disgruntled that Ran decided not to be a police officer, and tends to administer punishment by either giant swinging them or withholding her allowance. Kiyoka Kotobuki, age is a secret, is Ran's mother. She's also a police officer and she drives a patrol car. She plays all sorts of random Japanese instruments.

    Gals from Bukuro Mami Honda, age 16, is the daughter of the extremely wealthy Honda family. She lives the life of a debutante at home and school, where she has been trained to excel at just about everything she does. But she hides that persona away when she rules the streets of Ikebukuro. When she visits Shibuya, it is clear she is intent on invading Ran's turf, and the two girls become rivals. Nickname: Mami-rin (from Ran) Harue Kudou - Mami's friend has a shady past must like Miyu. In fact, she used to hang out in Shibuya. Alternative spelling: Harue Kudoh

    Shibuya locals Masato Iwai - age 14, is Sayo's boyfriend. He and Sayo call themselves the Junior Detectives, and travel around Shibuya doing detective work and acting out their favorite scenes from Odaiba Cop. They even have their own theme song. Catchphrase: Datchu (You bet!) Minigal Tan and Minigal White are the chibi gals who introduce the different Gal terminology in each episode. Nakanishi is Ran's teacher. He's always annoyed that Ran arrives late, sleeps in homeroom, and makes up far-fetched tales for not doing her homework. As a result, he punishes Ran with supplementary schooling (i.e. detention with teaching), but generally cares that Ran progresses academically. Nickname: Naka Teach. Satsuki Iida and Rie Aihara are schoolmates that Ran has known since elementary school. Satsuki has blonde hair in a short ponytail, and Rie has black hair. They are fairly trendy but mainly interact with Ran and the gals at school. Tan Face Trio (Red, Yellow, and Blue) are a group of girls who pride themselves in spending most of their time in sun salons (tanning booths). This is different from Tatsuki who is naturally dark-skinned. They don't like Ran that much, and try to find ways to poke fun of her paleness. In the series, they are only known by their primary hair colors.

    Characters that appear in Season Two Naoki Kuroi, age 14, is the skateboarding, fun-loving younger brother of Tatsuki. He falls in love way too easily, and hopes to inherit the family's ramen business. He becomes a Junior Detective, and pals around with Sayo and Masato, although he hopes to find someone to love that isn't taken. Nickname: Naokichi, Monkey Boy (same as his brother) Towa Himejima, age 24, is a green-haired gal who has returned to Shibuya to manage the Palm Tree café, which becomes the local hangout for the Gals. Kasumi Tsukino, age 14, is a homely girl with glasses and pigtails. She was rescued by a super Gal when she was younger, and now aspires to be the number one gal in Shibuya. But in order to be number one, she has to take down Ran, and she plots all sorts of mean schemes. Her icon is the Rabbit. Katase Kazuki, age 16, is a boy at Aya's school who quickly charms and befriends Aya when she is having troubles figuring out her relationship with Rei. He aspires to study but gets annoyed when Aya doesn't act as studious as she used to be because she wants to be with her friends.

    Contributing to the guide Summary: The episode titles will be changed to include heart and arrow symbols only when the summaries and recaps are added or updated. Since the production codes are self-evident they will only be added with major changes. Trivia: GAL Lingo, Ironclad Rules for Gals, references to real places in Tokyo, character debuts, ring tones, and cultural observations (New Year's temple visit, Ran plays DDR, what is para para). Quotes: Please specify the English dub or sub in the comments section. Allusions: Product Parodies like the upside down McDonalds sign, references to other TV shows or movies. Notes: Alternative titles from Enoki Films, Video release dates (first episode of the disc or volume only) Cast: For character names, I've used the Western format for the English dub and tried Eastern format for the Japanese dub. For instance: Luci Christian (Ran Kotobuki) Megumi Toyoguchi (Kotobuki Ran) The guest stars are mainly in Western format. There are plenty of Japanese VA guest stars left to fill out, so if you can read Japanese credits, go for it.
