    A witty examination of anime series
    Many of these "comedy slice of life" series are an examination of the characters and their relationships with each other. The Chronicles of the Going Home Club really isn't about that. The characters in this series are more like a medium from which they serve up some kind of (usually amusing) commentary. I find that the jokes in this series have a subtle maturity and sophistication that you don't ...

    Absolutely Hilarious!
    I've seen that some people stopped watching after the first episode. That's a total mistake. This show is a blast. It's true that some of the characters lack development but, the show is a laugh riot. Give it a few more episodes and the humor definitely becomes more polished.

    Straightforward Gag Anime, Above Average Execution, Hella Sweet Gags
    What sets Chronicles apart from other gag manga adaptations is a willingness to 'go with the flow' in later episodes and daring, tonally elevated gags that give the show more character than other just-jokes programming. It's definitely scatterbrained, as other viewers mention, but I like to think it provides variety and keeps any jokes for going on too long. Also, did we forget the common Western ...

    Going home is going well. . .
    Another school club anime, but nicely done. Unlike so many others, however, this show focuses almost entirely upon club time, to the near-exclusion of seeing the characters at home or involved in normal school activities. The humor is often subtle, despite the writers' obvious love of puns, and reflects a lot of pop culture influences. The cast is an ensemble of five arch stereotypes (the ...

    An Interesting Show For Summer 2013
    I personally like this anime. You have your usual straight man in a room filled with comedic characters that act as though what they are doing is normal. The references that they show are also well done. This reminds me of Gintama and Sket Dance in a way where they talk and do absolutely nothing. I recommend that you watch this series as it gets interesting the more that you watch.

    Glad I watched this show
    I almost skipped this show because of the terrible (by CR standards) rating. I'm glad I didn't. When it comes to completely mindless fun this show is amazing. Yes, there's very little character development; yes, there's a similar character-scape to most other slice-of-life shows. But this show isn't trying to be anything new, it's just trying to make you laugh.

    If you don't mind having the ...

    Wonderful Bag of Nonsense
    Sometimes you just want an anime to relax to and enjoy. You don't want serious plot, you don't want crying and romance, you just want something entertaining. Chronicles of the Going Home Club is a fantastic anime that doesn't care to make any sense and loves to make fun of itself. Try it out, give it a chance. It's a riot.

    a supremely awesome laughfest
    if you're looking for deep plots or continuous storyline this isn't it. It is just gags and fun. This is one of a kind unique. For when you're tired of the emotionally draining amines. If you notice all the bad reviews are from people who only watch one or two episodes and they just don't get it. Here's to good sense of humor.

    Easy going laughter.
    This show is very sporadic and random and it seems to skip around a lot but this is mainly due to the fact that it is based on a 4-koma manga. A lot of the negative reviews are all complaining about lack of plot or character development which is stupid. This is a high-school, comedy, slice-of-life show so those kinds of things aren't needed. It's comedy and a pretty good one at that. Most of the ...

    Would be better with some kind of plot or character development.
    It's certainly funny at times but it's not that fantastic.

    6 episodes now and there's only been development for one character so far, Botan who is this crazy powerful martial artist girl, which is just an overused aspect of the show.
    She's not the main character yet get's pretty much all the focus, they should all have equal focus.
    It starts with Natsuki seeming to be the most important ...
