When Kodaka Hasegawa finds out that he will be transferring to a new school, he is determined to make a positive impression, and maybe even some friends. However, Kodaka discovers he is out of luck when he immediately gets labeled as a violent delinquent due to his blond hair and intimidating expression. Although a month has passed, Kodaka is still alone thanks to his notorious reputation. However, his life begins to change when he finds fellow loner Yozora Mikazuki talking to her imaginary friend in an empty classroom.

After sharing stories of their lonely high school life, Kodaka and Yozora decide to overcome the difficulties of making friends together by starting the Neighbor's Club. Created for people who don't have friends, daily activities involve learning social skills and how to fit in, which will hopefully allow them to make friends. Joined by the eroge-loving Sena Kashiwazaki, and other eccentric outcasts, Kodaka may finally have managed to find people he can call friends, in this club filled with hilarious oddballs.

Not even gonna cap dude, this show is pretty Meaty, and the characters have a lot of Meat to them.

This show has a bunch of cool characters and good stories I can get behind, But season 2 in the 2nd to last episode it gets pretty tough to wanna keep watching, other then that I love it and its my 3rd fave anime oat. If you wanna quick laugh with no big looming threat, some hot girls, a bit of harem/ecci thats not too much, and just a fun time, i genuinely cant recommend a better show.

Characters were pretty well rounded, and fun to ...

Mixed Feelings
Starts off a nice premise. Show goes through the cliches one by one, and eventually reaches its very predictable ending. It serves as an adequate watch in-between 2 actually artistically driven series, to keep your standards lower.

Really dislike the two main girls here. Yozora portrays more emotion and interesting character within the first 5 minutes of the first episode than she does from there until the ending combined. She is just there to insult Sona and assert her moral superiority over the other just as one-dimensional girls. Sona is also very irritating; an entitled, very sensitive girl with the preferred look for your avid anime ...

This anime was terrible. I'm not going to beat around the bush. It was awful. I watched the first season, and I won't be watching the second.

The reason it's terrible is entirely around the characters. They're awful. There's not a sympathetic one in the bunch. But far and away the worst is Yozora. Every harem/ecchi anime like this seems to have a character that meets the tsundere trope. She's not a tsundere. She's a tsun tsun tsun.. tsuntsuntsuntsun. Forget the "dere", there's none of that. Half the comedic gags are based around her pulling a ...
