Chara design is bad and it's obvious production costs are low.

Too much sceaming coming from main heroine. Many scenes tried to be funny but wasn't funny at all (I only laughed when they switched to storyboards). I guess this could be good but with another studio and with better script (cutting plot of the show into 5 minute sketches isn't helping either - even if this is from 4-koma manga).

Balut asked:
Does it have a lot of references ... ?

Yes, it does. However, the references are most often to very, very obscure things
which only Japanese people would know about. So it tends to seem random or
boring to fans outside of Japan. It could be good for those anime fans who enjoy
a major challenge and want to learn more about Japan.

I would not characterize it as a parody anime, at least not in the ordinary sense.

The OP was cute. I like the ED, that was repeated twice before the actual one.

Dem seals. Dem bears. Oh yeah, we didn't get to see the Fourth Bear King.

Natsuki and Karin join the Going Home Club, whose club president is Sakura.
Botan and Claire are interesting characters.

Favorite quote from this episode:
"Let's go buy you a stationary store later."
I had to backtrack and reread. Found out they really meant it.

I guess the humor is alright. I did enjoy some parts, so I'll continue.
I’m always searching for something, for someone. This feeling has possessed me I think, from that day… That day when the stars came falling.

I don't really have problem with the sense of humor of the episode. It was quite funny. But one thing that's really bothering me is the VA's. D: I guess you can't expect much from new voice actors.. then again Hikasa Yoko did really well with Mio. @_@;

Oh and also, that ahoge is really distracting. D:

The director was completely inexperienced when he started working on this series.
As a result, the first few episodes have some flaws. Unfortunately, those issues
attracted a lot of criticism. However, he learned very quickly and the quality quickly
became excellent. Unfortunately, many viewers will be turned off by episodes 1
and 2. My suggestion: Jump directly to Episode 4 and watch the rest of the series.
If you love it, then go back and watch the first three episodes.

I would say: Watch it from the beginning. Its the right way and 3 episodes are shorter than a movie, so why skip them? And I dont know whether not so good animations are a point to drop the whole show, because I thing its more animation than a manga would do obviously and so many people dont mind if they read a manga. Also simple animated shows like Shin-chan ore old movies like Lupin III are awesome, too. And superwesome animations arent really necessary for this kind of shows like Kitakubu is one.

This has been bugging me for a while now, but what is written on the blackboard in the club room?

I have this strange feeling while watching this Anime.

I can see that most of the voice actress are beginners. I hope that they'll improve and get more roles. Natsuki and Karin's voice are not that bad though ^_^

Some jokes made me smile, but yeah, some jokes are pretty forced.

I gotta say that this episode was kinda boring. I was kinda bored but I hope that the next episodes will be better :D Well, time to sleep, got school exams tomorrow =_=

Hi AO968. What Sakura wrote on the blackboard is
pronounced: kitaku daiichi
literally meaning:
帰 return (ki)
宅 home (taku)
第 number (dai)
一 one (ichi)
You could translate the phrase as:
" Going Home Above All! "
in other words, going home is the best part of the day.
But you can see that Sakura did not write the character 第. She wrote
something a lot simpler. It is an abbreviated form of 第. That is because
第 requires so many strokes of the chalk. It is normal to use abbreviated
forms such as this in handwriting.
If you look around the club room, you can see that they normally have a
framed calligraphy hung on the wall which has the same phrase. Basically,
this is their club motto.
Oh, and taku (宅) is the "taku" in "otaku".

I like how they broke the 4th wall sometimes. I don't think I seen an anime that has done that yet. Some of the jokes are funny and other not so much. I enjoyed it a little. Alright first episode.

Okay, nothing ground-breaking here. But it's funny and it's cute, and it got quite a few laughs out of me.

All I want to do is watch, relax, and laugh. You don't need "character development" or "plot" to have fun SoL series. Loved it, I'll be watching all 12.

It doesn't look very exciting, but it may have other qualities. That messing with the fourth wall was kinda funny.

I respect your opinion as long as you respect mine.

It was painful to watch. It's a comedy show, but I failed to laugh. It would've been better if it was a 5 or 15 min episode.

I agree there wasnt really any funny jokes so far and for some reason they cramed in a baby seal mascot with no explanation
