Joshi Kausei (女子かう生) is a "silent manga" written by Ken Wakai starring three girls: the innocent Mayumi Furui; the unfortunate Momoko Futo; and the calm and collected Shibumi Shibusawa and their everyday life attending high school.
The manga provides examples of:
- Ambiguously Gay: Shibumi seems to be attracted to Momoko. The first episode shows her having a LOT of fun slapping Momoko's thighs together repeatedly.
- Childhood Friends: Momoko and Shibumi are shown to have been friends since elementary school.
- Four Is Death: In "The High School Girl and the Unlucky Day", Momoko starts her day by spilling coffee on her sweater in the shape of a 4. At the end of the episode, a crow poops on her sweater in the same shape.
- Innocent Fanservice Girl: Momoko tends to fail to realize that what she does can be easily misconstrued as lewd. For example, she thinks nothing of a stick of gum landing between her thighs, and even happily offers it back to the salaryman who accidentally dropped it there in the first place.
- Joshikousei: The manga and anime series consists of this.
- Meganekko: Shibumi wears glasses to compliment her collected personality.
- Ms. Fanservice: Momoko. The first episode consists of her laying on two desks, her long legs being the primary focus. Various shots in other episodes tend to focus on them as well.
- New Transfer Student: A flashback shows Mayumi as this, explaining why she wears a different uniform from the other girls.
- Punny Name: Momoko's full name (in Japanese order) is Futo Momoko. 'Futomomo' is the Japanese word for thighs.
- Salaryman: A recurring character is one, usually sleeping on the same train Momoko commutes in.
- She's Got Legs: One of the first sights we have of Momoko is of her long, shapely legs. Her thighs in particular get the most attention, being so thick that they jiggle (with a jello-like sound effect) when Shibumi closes em together.
- Silence Is Golden: Virtually no character speaks.
- Slice of Life: There is no overarching plot
- The Tease: Momoko decides to squeeze Mayumi's face between her thighs in episode 1.
- Toilet Humour: Momoko seems to like poop jokes, as seen in the foggy window and kotatsu scenes.
- Token Mini-Moe: Mayumi is very short and cute, but is still a high schooler like her friends.
