Synopsis

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

Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku (or Chronicles of the Going Home Club) is an anime adaptation of a manga serialized by Square Enix and is currently ongoing with 3 volumes published at the time of writing this review. The story follows a group of high school girls who are in the 'Going-Home Club'. Instead of doing regular club activities, the 'Going-Home Club' is dedicated to having as much fun as possible, by doing such things as playing video games or even simply feeding pigeons in the park. (Thanks, Wikipedia!)

To be honest, KKK is an anime I picked up from my 'dropped anime' list. At first, I found read more

Chronicles of the Going Home Club; yet another school comedy?

Everyday, literally millions of school comedy anime are brought forth into existence. No joke. It’s a somewhat... saturated market where the term “sink or swim” springs to mind.

And to start this review, I’ll admit. Going Home Club went the way of the majestic rock. Rocks have, infact, never been very good swimmers, but perhaps I’m getting slightly off topic.

Of course, just because one rock… I mean anime, gets dragged under the clambering of other more popular shows doesn’t mean it’s bad. If anything, Going Home Club is misunderstood.

For instance, those seeking a show with “character development” read more

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

Recommendations

Members of said club just louge around. Doing random things here and there. While getting to know one another in the process.
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.
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.
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 KKK is about breaking the 4th wall.
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.
Similar theme & personalities within each characters.
