When Natsuki Andou jokingly said the only school club she’d join is the "Going Home Club", she had no idea it was actually real! Having now accidentally become a member, the girl soon discovers that the Going Home Club is anything but typical: they pass the time having as much fun as possible outside of the classroom, whether it’s feeding pigeons, going to a crepe stand, or even using martial arts moves to open bottles! Alongside fellow students Karin, Sakura, Claire and Botan, Natsuki will learn just how fun a school club can be.
Having been close friends for years, when young Tooru passes her entrance exam she immediately rushes to tell Run that they will be attending the same school. However, since Run is one year older, not only will the two girls be in different classes, but the air-headed second year has already made her own friends, Yuuko and Nagi. Now the small, volatile and overprotective Tooru must learn to share her best friend and get to know her new acquaintances, as the four girls make the most of each new day.
Strange and hard to ground in reality characters interacting with each other is pretty much all that you need to describe these two anime.
Both shows have various strange, and sometimes over the top characters interating with each other to create comedic moments.
Both are about teenage girls who get up a bunch of random things during their life at school. They have got quite a lot in common as well, such as genres/tags (Comedy,Slice of Life, School Life), Character personalities (i.e. Tooru = Natsuki?) and setting (they are both mainly set in a school of some sort). So that is why if you liked one you should like the other.
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
Chronicles of the Going Home Club seems to inspire to be like this but is a little more out there in terms of humour. While Azumanga doesn't take itself seriously it still has a more natural progression for the most part.
Like K-ON!, Azumanga Daioh seems to be a source of inspiration for Chronicles of the Going Home Club. Unfortunately it's a pretty poor attempt, with the comedy being very hit and miss, mostly miss, and the characters being far from as likable as in Azumanga Daioh.
Everything this show does, Azumanga Daioh has done it better before, and the more original parts aren't worth writing home about.
It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!
Probably K-on! is another of this anime's inspirations. However humour is often derived from normal interactions between the girls in K-on! while Chronicles of the Going Home Club goes out of it's way to make them quite strange indeed. Chronicles of the Going Home Club is going out of it's way to parody this type of anime or at least it seems to do it unintentionally by it's seeming ''quality''.
K-ON! seems to be exactly the type of anime that Chronicles of the Going Home Club is trying to parody, not all that successfully might i add.
If you did enjoy this one, and you haven't seen K-ON! yet then you should have a blast with it.
Yuuko, Mio and Mai are regular high school girls who lead a normal everyday life. However, with bizarre explosions causing random objects to rain down on their heads, lunch turning into an epic battle between girl and wiener, and students riding to school on goats, their lives are anything but ordinary. Meanwhile android Nano spends her days wishing she were a normal human, but keeping house for her creator, the playful and immature child genius Hakase, dealing with talking cat Sakamoto, and trying to keep a hold of her multitude of easily-detachable body parts, her dream is far from a reality...
They both have a similar spirit of humor and parody. Also both are hilarious and fun, making for great, light watching.
If you found Chronicles of the Going Home Club remotely funny, then Nichijou will blow your mind. It's pretty much the best comedy anime going, and does everything better than this show.
Check it out, you won't regret it.
There’s never a dull day in lives of the Hekiyou Academy student council! President Kurimu has a sweet tooth and neglects her duties with ease, while secretary Chizuru skillfully manipulates those around her. Otaku Mafuyu obsesses over writing online walkthroughs, and is constantly hounded by Ken, the only male of their crew and an eroge addict who has the ultimate goal to turn the entire council into his harem. Luckily for Mafuyu she’s protected from his advances by Minatsu, her sporty and tomboyish sister! Together, the five repeatedly struggle in their fight against boredom, making constant otaku references and fighting against the journalism club along the way!
Both are centered around clubs of seemingly an impossible combintation of people. While Seitokai is a harem the characters in Chronicles of the Going Home Club do not seem all that different from what you'd expect in a harem anime.
I'm not even all the way done with the first episode of Chronicles of the Going Home Club and I thought to myself, this is so much like Seitokai no Ichizon I have to go place a recommendation for it! Both anime seem to be just about randomness and the crazy thoughts of the characters in the clubs. They are both character driven plots to the max and from what I've already seen, I think Going Home Club will have just as many funny references to things as Seitokai.
