Ah so it's Chutobu after all. Too bad they didn't decide to go further with GJ-bu. Apparently there are more than 300 chapters and I doubt anime covered even 1/3 of it.

As for Chuutobu, aren't the imoutos in their first year of middle-school? By the time they get to high-school, not even Tama will be left.

I'm not sure what year they're in, but since the title has "middle school" in it, I assume it wouldn't need to wait until they're in high school. Plus Kasumi starts that club well before their older siblings graduated, so we would probably see them now and again. So I assume a spinoff would be explicitly set in the middle school, during largely the same time as main GJ-bu.

(Not that I think we're likely to see it animated anyway.)


Well yeah. I'd also like to see a spin-off with the GJ-bu : Imouto Version, but I just don't think GJ-bu would be the same without Kyoro and co being the main focus.

Are you sure they animated the GJ-bu Chuutoubu spinoff? I would assume there's a lot more material about the imouto. Chuutoubu is also ongoing, though it's only been publishing a year.


The guys in the episode discussion thread were saying they animated the entire LN. As for Chuutobu, aren't the imoutos in their first year of middle-school? By the time they get to high-school, not even Tama will be left.

A spin-off from characters from the great anime of all time. This can only mean this will become the second greatest anime of all time.

The title of the thread is incorrect, the anime ended up being just the original GJ-bu, not GJ-bu Chuutoubu. Notice that the last non-necrobump in the thread was August 2012...

A Chuutoubu sequel has not been announced and seems somewhat unlikely with GJ-bu's low BD sales.


Almost 3K BDs according to the latest numbers. That doesn't seem to low, about average compared to other 2013 shows. I'm going to remain optimistic about either a Season 2 or a Chuutoubu spin-off.

It has not even crossed the Manabi-Line.

I really hope that we get the spin-off since I liked Jill and Kasumi. In fact I really want a love story between Jill and Kyouya ._.

If you don't agree with me, then you're simply wrong.

I think its weird that mal only has the other characters listed an none are the ones that are stated in the manga's info.

So I'm wondering if they are doing it differently then the manga itself. Which is a shame since I was looking forward to the black hair/red eye girl with the fox mask to the side of her face.

... Geraldine, a Canadian girl ...


Even if not other wise interested, it's not often you see characters from Canadaland in anime. I want to see what the show thinks we're like. She better chug maple syrup, riding a polar bear while playing hockey, or I'll call shenanigans.

Only example I've seen so far didn't do any of above
still she writing everything in kanji and having problems with English tests (but that I think was only in manga)

and here she is

but this series looks nice - not original but it may be fun (and it's all that matters)


Kate was AWESOME. Or at least her seiyuu was. Saw a clip on Youtube and watched the show for this voice alone. Hilarious and fantastic.

Anyway, about this show. I love the idea of chibi-comedies, even though they seldom turn out to be anything special. Maybe this one will be. Gonna check it out.

Mamiko Noto would make a great Geraldine.

more anime about club, huh? That setting works for me, so I don't complain. Most likely will watch it. ^^

i think i will pass on this one too

Jul 9, 2012 1:25 PM by Mr_Gutts

we shall see what it holds within ô.ô

Jul 9, 2012 12:57 PM by AidaJudge

If the anime is actually in chibi-style, then i'll pass. If it's not, then it'll depend on what else i'm watching during whatever season it airs.
