Kitakubu Katsudō Kiroku Schoolgirl Manga Gets TV Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Kuroha's story about an afterschool club for girls who don't have a club

Square Enix's web magazine Gangan Online announced on Thursday that a television anime adaptation of Kuroha's Kitakubu Katsudō Kiroku manga has been green-lit for this July.

"Kitakubu" (literally, "go-home club") is Japanese slang for kids who go home instead of joining clubs, sports, or other afterschool activities. In one high school, there is a real "Kitakubu" of girls who do whatever they like. The president is a free spirit named Sakura, while Botan is the combative heir to a school of ancient martial arts. Claire happens to be the daughter of the head of the powerful Kokonoe conglomerate. Natsuki joins the club at the invitation of another freshman, Karin, but she is unprepared for the hijinks there.

Kuroha launched the manga on Gangan Online in August of 2011, and Square Enix published the second book volume last November.
