News GJ-bu Anime Slated to Air In January
posted on 2012-08-22 00:32 EDT
A live program on the nicnonico service announced on Tuesday that the anime adaptation of Shin Araki 's GJ-bu (Good Job Club) light novel series will premiere next January. The studio Dogakobo (Yuruyuri) will produce the series, and the cast and staff will be announced in the near future.
The first announcement for the anime was printed alongside an advertisement for the GJ-bu Chūtō-bu spinoff series. However, the anime is now refered to simply as GJ-bu, the title of Araki's original light novel series.
Each of GJ-bu's nine volumes contains 36 four-page short stories about the lives of high school students.
Not every super hero gets an awesome robot, elemental powers to summon lightning, or can fly through the air due to sheer psychic will. No, some personalities probably aren't suited for the super hero role, but it's thrust upon them anyway, strange powers and all. 2013-05-25

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
What keeps this volume from falling into the morass of creepy shoujo manga is that Kokoro Natsume does it well. It isn't high art, or even a real standout in the supernatural genre, but this story pulls you in and leaves you wanting the next installment. It's uncomfortable, disturbing, and sometimes leaves you wanting a very hot shower, but despite itself, Lovephobia sinks its fangs in and doesn't let go.
