Shinomiya Kyouya is forced to become a new member of the GJ, an unidentified club that dwells in a room of the former building of a certain school. Here he meets the club leader, Mao, a short girl with a big attitude; Mao's younger sister, Megumi, who has the heart of a bipolar angel; the recognized genius with a lack of common sense, Shion; and the always-hungry and mysterious Kirara. Time flies with these unique girls around.

Being as frank as possible, I found the Winter 2013 season to be quite weak, despite having a lot of bright and colourful ideas. The majority of them only proved to be average, slightly above even, and they definitely won't be memorable for long. Now, this talk may portray to be a little irrelevant and bias (and apologies if it is), but the point I want to get across is that I was hoping that 'at least' one show in the season would be in a state without having to be stalled, being both enjoyable and interesting every episode and with no actual problems dragging read more

Aaah... I suppose it's a little difficult to write a review for a relatively aimless slice of life anime like this, where there's no real plot or any kind of conflict - but I will give it a vague stab, as GJ-bu turned out to be a surprisingly sweet, heart-warming, amusing, and actually rather subtle series, which hooked me from the very first episode.

So, as I mentioned above, the story is relatively... non-existent. GJ-bu follows a chronological order, spanning a year, and documents the lives and various antics of the members of the GJ (Good Job) society - a school club that seems to have read more

Sound is High quality and great from where i watch it

Characters are funny and some are cute

I enjoy this a lot and i would recommend anyone this for laughter and enjoyment

Personally, I find this anime, basically, a cute, simple, slice-of-life anime. It reminds me a lot of several other slice-of-life anime like Lucky Star, Working!! or Acchi Kocchi. Why? Well it's mostly because GJ-Bu doesn't seem to have a real plot of its own.

But despite that, I find it entertaining. Sure, there's no story behind it. But seeing Kyoya and the stuff that happens with the girls in the club room? I can't help but smile while watching it.

The art is bright and colorful. The anime screams a rainbow of colors, which is a good thing. It's also clear and the animation flows rather read more

Okay, too many similarities. Both are school-life-centered comedies with a plot involving a laid-back club and it's awesome members. I absolutely love both. Watch one, be ready to love the other ;)

Both have cute characters and very simple comedy

Anime: Seitokai no Ichizon
The cast in both series consist of a club with mainly female members and one male member. This male member gets teased a lot by these female members. GJ-bu's humor is even more innocent and cute than that of Seitokai no Ichizon, however.

Members of said club just louge around. Doing random things here and there. While getting to know one another in the process.

Anime: Seitokai Yakuindomo
The concept behind both series involves a club at school where its members does fun activities on a daily basis. The main male protagonist gets himself dragged into the clubs' many activities.

Both series' club/council members have contrasting personalities that often creates different moods depending on the given premise of the episode.

There is a lot of humor in both series that takes place in the setting of a school life environment. Despite the majority of the cast members to be girls, there is little to no hints of romance. Rather, there is absurd dialogues and comedy.

Anime: Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
The theme of a club at school with its members doing random activities to pass their time is present in both series.

Both series' main male protagonist are surrounded by a group of characters who all have their own personalities and adds fun/drama to the series.

Both series' main female protagonist/president has a strange personality that often gets into weird moments with the main male protagonist. There seems to be a lack of plot present in both series but rather follows what the club's activities in their every day lives.

There is also a lot of comedy present in both series.
