Back-Street-Girls-1--300x429 Comedy of the Summer? Back Street Girls Unveils Three Episode Impression!
Some Yakuza mess up and are forced to become cute female idols and accidentally become explosively popular? Where has this anime been all my life?!

Yazuka and comedy was here last season in Hinamatsuri and that was comedy anime of the season. I wonder how this will play out.

I wonder then if this is going to be like Beelzebub with lots of jokes or something like Mob Psycho 100 where you get jokes and story along the way. Still though, being forced to be a gender that is not your own must be scary. People should be able to live freely.

Either way, I think the message here is don't fail your yakuza boss or you might end up in a new body and a slave to the machine.

Synopsis

Men who are part of the Yazuka are now going to make their debut as idols!? And their popularity has exploded as backstreet idols!! However, these men have to deal with increasingly absurd circumstances. They just want to live a regular life, but…!? This is a comedy about idols who have changed genders to become lovely, bouncy crossdressing girls engaged in immoral business practices!

Three Episode Impression

This anime features three yakuza who have really done it. They really went and screwed the pooch leaving them out in the rain. Their boss says they have two options, sell their organs as penance, or forcibly undergo gender reassignment surgery in Thailand and become idols in Japan. Kentarou, Ryou, and Kazuhiko take the latter and become Airi, Chika, and Mari of the Goku Dolls idol group. Their problems increase as they become explosively popular and their manager continues to enroll them and enter them into anything and everything where he thinks he can make money. Their days of hell begin.

We really thought this was going to be disturbingly problematic, but Back Street Girls just does it right. Yakuza x Humor x Idol seems to be a great mixture of what to look for in an anime. The three girls are still Yakuza on the inside and just have no idea how to adjust to their new bodies and personalities. The humor is nonstop and watching them deal with being treated like trash for being idols is some of the funniest moments thus far. This anime is clearly in the running for comedy anime of the season. Definitely a must-watch if you enjoy comedy anime.
