Yuuki Akamatsu lives a normal high school life... that is until his cousin, Ayaka Nikaidou, convinces him to join the Journalism Club as a life consultant! His new job is to manage the advice column for the school's weekly newspaper to help him become more social. Soon, Yuuki is joined by three girls: the smart and shy Rino Endou, the athletic and outgoing Ikumi Suzuki, and the cultured and sweet Fumi Kujou. Together, they solve the personal problems of those who anonymously ask for advice.

Although each of the new life consultants has their own unique perspective, they are able to reach solutions together by holding debates and social experiments throughout the week. However, as time goes on, the four slowly come to realize that they have not only been guiding other students through their troubles, but also working through problems of their own as well.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Jinsei adapts the first 5 novels of Ougyo Kawashigi's light novel series of the same title.

I don't know exactly how I feel about this series. I like it, but then again, there are some things I don't.
I'll just have to tell you something important before you watch this show;
It is not a harem.
Yes, the main character, Akamatsu, does hang around several girls at all times. But, there's only one girl in which the show romantically develops. This is a good thing, and although it's not a huge change, it feels different from the norm when it comes to romantic comedies involving several girls.

I'll make this a quick first impression, for people who are curious. I'll just ...

Mixed Feelings
I hereby rename the guy Eyebrows, because that's the only feature that gives him a shred of personality. Also his eyebrows look slightly disgusting.

The anime revolves around a handful girls giving advice to troubled students, in the form of Eyebrows presenting messages from students and the girls give mostly amusingly terrible advice until someone says something useful and that becomes the official reply. Since this (and small sidetracks) is all there is to the story you should watch with your focus entirely on the comedy that is thankfully sort of goodish. Eyebrows is the only character without real personality, I'm guessing pathetically hollow guys who ...

Hold up before you think this is a troll hear me out.
So I watched this when it was ongoing and since than it has been majorly update but some backstory on this series was that it was a test series with all new voice actors. These new voice actors have never done an anime before and were not bad at all, but the focus was on them learning not the anime itself.
Two enormous problems that cannot be overlooked in the slightest
1. NO constancy with episodes. I watched this while it was ongoing and on I think the summer 2014 list and it finished I believe ...
