Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl (かしまし ~ガール・ミーツ・ガール~ Kashimashi ~Gāru Mītsu Gāru~?) is a Japanese yuri manga series written by Satoru Akahori and illustrated by Yukimaru Katsura. The manga was originally serialized in Dengeki Daioh between the July 2004 and May 2007 issues, and later published in five bound volumes by MediaWorks from January 2005 to May 2007. The story focuses on Hazumu Osaragi, a lonely, albeit effeminate high school boy who is killed when an alien spaceship crash lands on him, only to be restored to life as an atomically correct girl. This results in a same-gender love triangle that Hazumu finds herself in with two of her best female friends.

A single light novel written by Mako Komao and illustrated by the manga's artist was published by MediaWorks under their Dengeki Bunko imprint in January 2006. The manga series was adapted into a twelve-episode anime television series plus a single original video animation (OVA) sequel by Studio Hibari. A visual novelwas created based on the series for the PlayStation 2 and was released in March 2006. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga series for English-language publication in North America and released the five volumes between December 2006 and March 2008.

The manga has been given positive reviews by the popular anime and manga magazine Newtype USA, and at the online resources Anime News Network and IGN. The first manga volume was Newtype USA's Book of the Month for December 2006, and Newtype noted how Seven Seas Entertainment's "fan-focused" translation, without an effort to localize the humor for the mainstream American market, worked well. In July 2007, Kashimashi was Seven Seas Entertainment's best-selling title. The series was also licensed in French by Ki-oon and in Chinese in Taiwan by Kadokawa Media.[10][11]
