  • 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 ...

    Very Relaxing, Funny and Heartwarming
    i'm really glad i picked up this anime because it's so heartwarming and it's just nice to enjoy a nice anime without any intensive plot-lines or complexity of a story. this lice of life has many similarities, in terms of ideas, to Non Non Biyori. there really isn't anything small leading up to something big. it's just an everyday life of a boy in a harem. i felt happy watching this anime and it is ...

    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 ...

    WOW!!! Season 2 here we come!
    I can't believe I waited so long to watch this amazing anime! Just searched and found out there will be a second season. It won't be the same without Kirara, Shion, and Mao. We will definitely have to wait and see how everything turns out, I'm so excited!

    What a great mixture of different personalities. Stick them in a room together and they meld so perfectly! This was such a wonderful example ...

    Can't wait until second season!
    Story: 9/10
    Characters: 10/10
    Animation: 8/10
    Comedy: 10/10


    I've watched plenty of anime this genre, the Comedy type I guess I'll call it. This one has always been my favorite. The characters are very lovable, the humor is genuine and original, and despite being a series without an story throughout, each episode is fun and entertaining. I really wish it hadn't ended where it did in ...

    Cute and funny without falling into the harem trap
    Ok, first I would like people to know what kind of show they are watching. This is not a twelve episode harem story arc. This is more like a four panel sitcom. There is no development (story or character) because there's not suppose to be.

    This is just a light-hearted show about a bunch of friends and their quirky interactions. As essentially a sketch comedy with a set group of characters, I ...

    Cute beyond belief. Why the ratings are so high?
    Many people ask the same question. "Why are the ratings for this anime so good?" These are the same people, who fail to enjoy a good comedy, who fail to enjoy because of not enough character development. Here's some brand new news for all you, that just came out yesterday in the newspaper, you don't need most the crap to just enjoy an anime... Character development is only good for the longer ...
