Wakaba*Girl is a comedy 4koma manga series written and illustrated by Yui Hara, who is known for creating the Kiniro Mosaic manga. The series began in late 2013 being published in Houbunsha’s Manga Time KR Comics. To date only 1 volume has been released.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
The story centers around the activities of Wakaba Kohashi, “a slightly out-of-tune super” daughter of a well-to-do family, and her friends. Wakaba (literally, “young leaves”) looks like an elegant rich daughter, but she admires the trendy gyaru fashion subculture. There is also the pure, innocent, fairy-tale-like Moeko. Mao is capricious and behaves in her own way. Nao used to be an athletic type of girl, but now loves the boys-love genre.
The Wakaba*Girl anime will be airing from July 3rd at 11:17pm JST on MBS in the Summer 2015 anime season, as part of the Ultra Super Anime Time block. Further information about the anime will be revealed soon.
