Chronicles of the Going Home Club/Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku
Genres: School

Plot:
When a friend asks Natsuki what high school club she's going to join, she cheerfully responds "the go-home club" (meaning, she's not going to join any of them). However, she soon realizes that this club actually exists at her high school, and she's just expressed interest in joining it! Before she knows it, she ends up as one of the two new members of "the go-home club," which is a small group of eccentric school girls. One of the girls likes fighting bears, while another is ridiculously rich. But what exactly constitutes the activities of "the go-home club"?

Episode 1:
Cuteeee OP song. I won't be skipping this one for sure. The poses were kinda funny as well.

I'm glad this is a full series tbh and not a short anime. Oh and the spoiler[polar bear] was kinda funny. It felt random though lol but anyways, I'll look more forward to see what's coming soon.

Claire's an interesting girl btw and is pretty imo :3

Sorry for not seeing this before starting my own *copy and pasted below*

Episode 1

This is definetly in my watch list, it reminds me of a mix of GJ-bu and Seitokai Yakuinodomo, with the fourth wall breaking of Seitokai no Ichizon, and no harem plot. The connections to GJ-bu include a cast that is relatively unkown, the opening song is sung by Otome Shintō, who sung the opening and had a couple roles in GJ-bu, and Natsuki is voiced by Ibuki Kido who's few large roles have included Kasumi from GJ-bu.

I found the humour had a lot of hits, from the standard kinda cliché tropes of being strong enough to fight bears being played with, to attempting to spoiler[play the ED after saying something cool] because that is how those shows often go, but playing it after announcing their spoiler[activity was getting ice-cream]. Natsuki's retorts themselves remind me a lot of Tsuda, although looking at where the source material comes from it might have more in common with Daily Lives of High School Boys.

Oh, and they got spoiler[reverted to story boards because they spent too many frames on one of them raising a hand]. This will likely be something I will have to watch.

Eh, the humour felt a bit forced. The joke about the brown bear being only the weakest of the four "bear kings" was pretty funny, as was the recurring gag about the ED song playing too soon, but most of the episode struggled to hold my attention.

That gigantic ahoge was very distracting, but I like the art overall and the girls were well-proportioned (don't appear as kiddy as what I'm used to in anime these days). Some of the gags were nice, but it's not really a ROFL type of anime. I'm probably gonna give it a full go as it doesn't seem like there will be anything too bad about it.

I thought I was sort of at the end of my "cute, quirky girls joining cute, quirky clubs and saying/doing cute, quirky things" tether, but I decided to check this one out, anyway. Eh. It had some chuckles ("Let's fight bears together") but I wasn't riveted. I'll check out some more but it wouldn't shock me if this got the heave-ho at some point.

Weird girls in the same weird club.
Karin & Natsuki got themselves into a club adventure.
Has some potential, but I guess this one is just all girls..
Although it looks like it may have some funny parts, don't think I'll be watching it.
It's just not my kinda of anime...

It got a couple of laughs out of me. It'll be a good counter balance to Free!

But my God this is the first time I've ever wanted to chop off some one's ahoge.

This looks to be a good comedy based on the first episode. The jokes just blends very well with the charming characters. Looking forward to episode 2.

Like Dtm, I also thought the humor was a little too forced. I like the use of straight man once in a while, but when it is implemented in every single joke it gets a little tiring.

Episode 2

The comedy here was so dry and unenthusiastic that it couldn't hold my attention very long. Something about the whole show seemed "off." I already mentioned the lack enthusiasm (even the MC who had been eager to scream about the dumb remarks made by the other characters in her "ahoge bubble" lacked oomph), but also things like comedic timing and wit were nonexistent. The parodies/references of other shows had to have been one of the most blandly animated ones I've ever seen lol. I don't think I'll be following this one.

so with episode 2, I was both amused and really bored at the same time. yoshiyukiblade pretty much described my thoughts towards the show. I think for now I will put this on hold and maybe come back to it at a later date. I feel like I'm watching too many shows this season anyway

Episode 7

The spoiler[Yugioh] reference had me laughing more than it should have. They had been treating most of the game like it was a spoiler[card game similar to Yugioh], and the it turned out the card had been spoiler[drawn on in a similar style to a yugioh card, and there were life points]. Laughing

Episode 8

spoiler[Amazing Trigun references]

I didn't have to pause the episode so often since there was a lot less text.

spoiler[Love how Natsuki-Chan's cowlick became her and Natsuki-Chan became essentially a robot.]

Episode 9

spoiler[ Love where the creators were too lazy to make fully animate the characters, so they made them into connected constellations. Then Natsuki-san's brother attacked the animators for being lazy.]

spoiler[ At the end in the mini home club the gag where Natsuki wasn't recognized by Karin
continued on. The seal and Botan saved the day and Karin recognized Natsuki again.]
