Chronicles of the Going Home Club Manga's Last Volume Listed

Kuroha's schoolgirl manga inspired 12-episode anime last year

Online retailer Amazon is listing the fifth volume of Kuroha's Kitakubu Katsudō Kiroku (Chronicles of the Going Home Club) manga as the last. Square Enix will ship the volume on July 22.

The manga follows the members of a "Kitakubu" (literally, "go-home club"), 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.

An anime adaptation premiered last year, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired. NIS America has licensed the series for home video release in North America.

Kuroha launched the manga on Square Enix's Gangan Online website in August 2011. Kuroha also ended the Magical Lollipop manga on the same website in April. Square Enix will publish the one collected volume on July 22.
