When a friend asks Natsuki what high school club she's going to join, she cheerfully responds "the go-home club" (meaning, she's not going to join any of them). However, she soon realizes that this club actually exists at her high school, and she's just expressed interest in joining it! Before she knows it, she ends up as one of the two new members of "the go-home club," which is a small group of eccentric school girls. One of the girls likes fighting bears, while another is ridiculously rich. But what exactly constitutes the activities of "the go-home club"?

Very nice and refreshing gag and parody anime. It has nothing to do with "cute girls & cute things" as some people think for unknown reason. The show heavily relays on breaking 4-th wall and abstract humor and it seems most of the anime watchers are not used for this and miss entire point of the series. The show is full of self-irony and mocks anime-industry quite a bit, and it feel kinda honest which I like.

People bash this show due to inability to understand content outside of typical school comedy/drama tropes. So, while I can't guarantee that you will like it, there are no read more

With markedly solid new offerings like Love Lab, Stella Jogakuin Koutou-ka C³-bu and Kiniro Mosaic, the Summer 2013 anime season has really been an excellent showcase of schoolgirl shows. With quality production and interesting hooks those anime all work to reaffirm how much fun the genre can be when done right. They also help to highlight the many failings of the peculiar Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku, the one new schoolgirl series of the season I would not recommend.

Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku is about five high school friends who are part of a club that doesn't really do anything--basically the same premise as Yuru Yuri or Yuyushiki. This read more

Deconstruction of the comedy, school genre.

It never takes itself seriously, too many comedies ruin themselves by adding unnecessary drama. The art is quite a bit better than the manga. Sound is appropriate, they manage new OPs and EDs despite their budget.

Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku is a comedic manga written by Kuroha and published by Square Enix. Thi year it was adapted into a twelve episode anime by Nomad, a studio that's only headed about a dozen productions, none of which I've seen. Let's take a look and see what this studio can do.

The series opens with High school student Andou Natsuki going in for the opening ceremony. Afterwards she checks out some of the club adverts, the strangest of which is someone flailing around in a seal costume. When asked what club she's going to join she responds by saying that she might read more

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

Anime: Yuyushiki
These are both slice of life featuring girls in a crazy strange high school club that probably shouldn't exist. Humour often revolves around tsukkomi character responding to absurd dialogue.

Anime: Joshiraku
While each show is quite different, having different settings and different character types, they both give off very similar feelings. The type of jokes and overall pace gives off a similar atmosphere that is different from this genre of slice of life, just a group of girls being cute that has been popular for a while now. If you liked one show, you should definitely check out the other.

Anime: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
They both have segmented partly continues story telly format. And are both ridiculously funny. They also focus on one gender but still don't completely exclude the other.

Anime: K-On!
The characters are very similar both in appearance and personalities
- Outgoing leader (Ritsu and Sakura)
- Best friend of the outgoing leader [only ones with drastically different personalities despite similar designs] (Mio and Botan)
- Rich girls who are literally clones aside from the tea (Mugi and Claire)
- Adorable airhead (Yui and Karin)
- "Mature" one who is quick to point out all of the dumb and incorrect things everyone says (Azusa and Natsuki)

They are all in clubs (Light Music Club/Going Home Club) in which they usually do absolutely nothing except talk and be moe. K-On is also about music whereas  read more

Anime: Sabagebu!
I always found it difficult to bind K-K-K with another show. Yes, the Cute Girls Doing Cute Things genre is the best way to attempt this. However, I think I want to try another route.

Sabagebu has a CGDCT feel, but the cute has been replaced by guns. If you know the drill already, then you probably have noticed the narrative from the show too. With such humor also being present in Kitakubu, it might be a nice show if you just want to sit back and enjoy some gag humor.
The characters are all very determinded, so don't expect too much development from  read more
