  • A slice of life gem in the newfangled “Unharem” department.
    There has been some confusion as to what genre this anime is from. This is purely a slice of life comedy, although this can be confused as being part of the harem genre. As some reviewers point out, despite the main cast consisting of one male and more than one or two females, the girls strictly consider the male character as a friend almost all the time. Any form of character developments between ...

  • cute anime, needed about how I expected
    i had only heard about this show through word of mouth and decided to give it a try, it was cute and pretty much the same kind of slide of life show with only one season, i did enjoy the story line and the characters each had something to like about them. The end of the show seemed very genuine, like you had a feel of how the voice actors felt about the show ending.

  • So sad it had to end so soon.
    Definitely one of my favorite anime. Each character was unique in there own way and fashion. Did a good job of demonstrating that people outside of Japan do speak English and it even had the Japanese voice actors attempt English as well. Definitely can;t wait for the second season to be released.

  • good, 2nd season plz
    i just found this show just going down the list and after reading the description i thought i would try it. i liked it from the get-go. its funny, simple, and most people would enjoy it without getting bent out of shape. sure there's no plot and only a few episodes reference previous ones, but its not a terrible thing. characters are fun, would have liked to see a little more development with ...

  • Very nice little anime.
    Really sweet and easy to watch.

    Small cast of likable and unique characters with punchy episodes that are broken up into little 'skits'. But doesn't feel jumpy or too random.

    The ending is nice aswell and wraps up the series in a nice, short little package.

    Great 'in-between-heavy-meaty-animes' anime.

    Silly, relaxing slice-of-life entry
    As far as first impressions go, this anime doesn't really provide you much of a hook or anything, no first wacky skit that makes you go, "Whoa! I want to keep watching this!" The first episode shows you pretty much the standard for how the next 11 will go, which is a bit more relaxed and silly, featuring rather wacky characters, while having fun all the way.

    The series focuses on the five (and ...

    Extremely lethargic After School Club
    GJ Club is a slice of life anime, a very very thin slice of life. The opening episode has no hook or apparent story at all. Just a bunch of very average students in a club room doing their separate things. Very average translates into typical archetypes following their preprogrammed scripts. A lone male and four females gives this series the ubiquitous harem feel all too common in anime. The male ...

    I Once Had This Situation!
    Back in high school I became a member of a group of friends who were all girls except me. Eventually that ended because I was angry that none of them saw me as a man they'd want to date. Now I remember the whole experience with affection, and regret that it didn't last longer.

    There's a kind of glamor and sweetness that girls can have for a gentle virgin boy, and this anime captures it ...

    A very enjoyable show
    Their is a term given for movies that are entertaining but also mindless called popcorn flicks. They are both something to enjoy without much emphasis placed on them and tend to be exactly what they say on the tin. They have the sole purpose to be entertaining and tend to avoid discussing cultural, political, religious etc themes. The anime series GJ Club is the equivalent of a popcorn show. ...

    A very good anime, a sleeper hit, a hidden gem
    This show is about 4 girls and 1 guy just doing random stuff. That's it. Random. You have to watch it to appreciate it. I warmed up to it by about the 2nd or 3rd episode, yet by the final episode I joined the many people asking for a 2nd season. The art is very good. My only nitpick is that the green-haired character, Tamaki, which is my favorite lookswise, was totally underused. Anyway, I'm ...
