Hasegawa Kodaka has transferred schools, and he's having a hard time making friends. It doesn't help that his blond hair tends to make people think he's a delinquent. One day, he runs into his bad-tempered solitary classmate Yozora while she's talking animatedly to her imaginary friend Tomo. Realizing that neither of them have any actual friends, they decide that the best way to alter this situation is to form a club and start recruiting.
That is how "Rinjinbu", The Neighbours' Club, was formed, a club specifically designed for people who don't have very many friends. As other lonely classmates slowly join their little club, they'll try to learn how to build friendships through cooking together, playing games, and other group activities. But will this group of relationship-challenged misfits really be able to get along?

"My hair is blonde. Your arguments are invalid."

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai literal translation "I don't have many friends" light novel Japanese written by Hirasaka Yomi and illustrated by Buriki. What lead me here was my nose for seeking up potential Harem animes. And the Harem God smiled upon me for thy wish came true. However I would suggest the author change the title of this anime to "I Have Lots of Potential Candidates for my Harem" instead.

Mixed Feelings
So, what do we have here? This OVA can be considered as a teaser for the up coming short novel anime "Boku wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai," it sort of give us an idea as to the genre of the said anime, since this OVA only run for about 11 mins, so for the story I'll rate it as a "Decent" 4 since there is no plot anyway, and is OVA is only mend to as a promotional omake. It only gives us a glimpse as to what kind of situation that the main character Kodoka is gonna be into.

The art of this anime has similar ...

If you're looking for a redeeming story, or a harem with redeeming characters, leave now. Despite being heavily popular in the Doujinshi scene, I have to say that this series does not live up to the fanbase. In fact, from the doujinshi I've seen, I have to say that the story for this is actually worse than from what I can parse out from those works.

Story: I read the Light Novel out of curiosity, and I feel it was better carried out there, not that it was at all good. The presentation of this section wasn't even trying to create the light and happy ...
