GJ-BU: Where Hair Reins Supreme!

As a reward for Sekinetsu help with the site’s banner he was allowed to pick five thing for me to review. He picked five anime and this here is one of them.

The Facts are These:

The Good Job Club is where Shinomiya Kyouya, Mao Amatsuka, Megumi Amatsuki, Kirara Bernstein, and Shion Sumeragi go to hang out everyday. Where they tackle their everyday problems or just the random problems that happen when you are bored.

Discoveries:

I would not have watched this anime if it wasn’t for the requests placed by Sekinetsu. I am going to start this off by saying this type of anime is not the anime I would usually watch, but I thought it was okay. At times it seemed the show had a weird hair fetish, or there would be several stories in one episode making it feel like a 4-koma. Other than that the characters were enjoyable to watch, which was necessary to keep the show going because it really had nothing else to it. The ending felt weird, I mean in the final episode it gets a bit serious and it was one of the few times they left the GJ-Club room. Though I enjoyed the ending and felt it was a proper send-off to the show.

Behind the Scenes:

The series is based off the light novel of the same name by the author Shin Araki. His other works include Eiyuu Kyoushitsu, and Aruaru! Mukyou Gakuen. The series was directed by Yoshiyuki Fujiwara, with his other works including Mikakunin de Shinkoukei and Plastic Memories. The series was written by Hideaki Koyasu, other projects he has been apart of are Lance N’ Masques and Yoaki Mae yori Ruriiro na: Crescent Love. The series was produced by studio Dogakobo and is licensed in North America for streaming by Crunchyroll.

The opening theme for the show is “Mōsō★Kōkan Nikki” by Otome Shinto…

 

A Brief View of the World:

This series takes place in the clubroom for the GJ Club. We know nothing about the world other than it is Tokyo Japan. Other than that it could have been in Space Japan for all I know.

Enjoyment:

The show was fun to watch each character had their own quirks that made them just a bit more interesting than the average anime character. Other than that the show felt like a 4-koma, with multiple short stories playing in the same episode.

Rewatchability:

The series is short with only 12 episodes, but there would not be anything to go back to. You would not get any additional story by watching them again. I guess you would just want to see the characters interact again.

Rating:

6/10
