^ Basically besides Kido Ibuki of OniAni & GJ-bu as the top cast, all are total first-timers as seiyuu.

Only in US. I doubt anyone in Europe or Asia or even South America care about it.
Well, I even saw a car with a "KKK" license plate just the other day!

Another high school girls club puts me off very strongly but seeing Nomad is making it makes me a little bit curious just to look at it.

I doubt that the average European or Asian knows what it stands for (I certainly didn't.)

Moe girls doing Moe things
how original
I wonder if you actually read the manga or not before writing the above? At least I checked the manga after reading the news and it seems that the main thing in the manga is some comedy routines that won't feel out of place for "warai kei" Japanese stand-up comedians. Is it what you call "moe things"? Is it original?

I can't keep track of all these girls in high school/clubs adaptations.
They really only interest me if the atmosphere feels similar to Nichijou.
Then again there's was Kill Me Baby which was similar to Nichijou except not good :s

And there's quite a few from this season, too. I'm starting to get tired of this recurring "school girls and club and random events" theme.
If it's just a series of short duration, then I'd probably watch it.

I'll probably skip it if its a pointless SoL moe show that goes for a while episode. if it's 5 minutes, then why not?

KKK! Doesn't sound too promising, though..

If its a short anime, I'll pass. Otherwise I'll give it two episodes.

Will probably skip because I have a feeling that ^ is right.

Here's to hoping that the entire premise is actually a sucker-punch, and that the actual plot revolves around manly Bear vs High School Girl combat, complete with buckets of sweat, badass finishing moves, tragic deaths, the f***-mothering FRIENDSHIP and Earth-shattering ka-BOOMS...
