It’s safe to say there are some very zany and wacky anime out there. The next Netflix Original anime set to release this month is perhaps the most bizarre anime to be released thus far! Here’s our guide to season one of Back Street Girls.

Back Street Girls is a Netflix Original anime based on the mange of the same name by Jasmine Gyuh. The Series is produced by J.C. Staff who have worked on previous titles such as Golden Time, Food Wars and UQ Holder.

What is the plot?

After failing their boss too many times, three Yakuza men are faced with two choices: die an honorable death and kill themselves or go to Thailand for gender reassignment surgery and train to become “Idol Girls.” They choose the latter.

After surgery and a tough year of training to become Idols, they debut with great success to the dismay of the Yakuza trio. Now having to deal with overwhelming popualrity that comes with being an idol, this is just the beginning for them.

Who is in the cast?

While the English dub cast hasn’t been released, the following is the list of Japanese voice actors are as follows:

Role Actor/Actress Where Have I Seen/Heard Them Before?

How many episodes are there?

The first season will be released with 10 episodes. 

The manga ended with 11 volumes so we can assume that the 10 episodes will cover the entirety of the Manga’s run.

Has Netflix released a trailer yet?

At the time of writing we are only 2 days away from the release of Back Street Girls and Netflix is yet to release a trailer! As the series has already aired in Japan we have been able to find a trailer!

When is the release date?

Back Street Girls will be available to stream on Netflix from the 12th of December!

Will Back Street Girls have a second season?

At this moment in time it is too early to say! With the anime potentially covering all the current source material it depends if the creator would be willing to write any further story for the show. Either that the production studio takes on the script for any subsequent season.
