Description
From Yen Press:

When their high schoolís pop-music club is about to be disbanded due to lack of interest, four girls step up to fill the membership quota. Unfortunately, lead guitarist Yui Hirasawa has never played an instrument in her life. Ever. And although she likes the idea of being in a band, standing in front of the mirror posing with her guitar is a lot easier than actually playing it. Itís gonna be a while before this motley crew is rocking out, but with their spunk and determination cranked to 11, anything is possible!

First thing first...
@ Teniki Yes there is a male character in it. It's that guy who works in the music store in chapter 2. Small role but still a guy xD. Alright teniki you know what to do xD.

In my opinion, it doesn't really matter what genders are the characters, as long as its good. =D
So far this manga hasn't been much of a let down (though it would be better with a few guys maybe? xD) but maybe this is the author's excuse to keep romance out of the story or something. So far it's a nice little 4koma to read, but not to the same level as some notable past 4koma.

I find this series very funny and, yes, cute... but mostly just funny. The characters are likable and the comedic pacing is on point. I would consider this Azumanga Daioh with guitars. Admittedly, not quite up to AD's humor level - but let's be honest, what in this world really is? wink

If you ask me, teniki's "review" ought to be removed from this site. It amounts to little more than "I didn't find this manga funny, so it must only appeal to sickos and pedos." As a 31-year-old female who finds this manga both funny and appealing... Let me assure you that you don't have a clue what you're talking about, teniki. And if this manga upsets you so much... I shudder to think how you'd react to some of the other manga out there that actually IS aimed at that kind of audience.

@teniki

I suppose shooting games are for people who don't have the balls to fire real guns? Or that action/adventure mangas are for people who are too lazy/afraid to save the world?

Harsh? No, just a callous, groundless, and opinionated generalization. Realist? My ass. The manga for the most part isn't even addressed.

Anyway the characters mesh well, and their interations are usually funny/cute. The art is fine; it's simple and fits the flow of a 4-panel.

4-panels tend to give off a "slice-of-life" feeling as half the time they can be read seperately or out of order and still make sense.

Azumanga, Lucky Star, K-ON. I'm sure there are going to be more of the same fashion.

I find the fact that there are no guys in this manga hilarious. It's the perfect guy fantasy who dislikes other guys simply cause theyre losers. Harsh words from a realist. If there are guys in this manga..which i doubt feel free to message me so i can remove this painfully hard to read comment for you K-on fans.

@Unrequited

You can play shooting games and also own a gun. It's called testing your reflexes and what you'd do in different situations. Reading action/adventure manga makes you lazy and don't want to save the world from What? (picking up garbage?)

At least Azumanga Daioh and Lucky Star actually had funny bits in it. This manga clearly just targets older men with the characters in a world without males. The only way people would even laugh are those who find "innocent" 2d pictures attractive and giggle and say "cute". I'm pretty sure a certain bear would like this manga though.
