What I Liked: Nice soundtrack with a old-school video-game feel. Kirara, everything from her character design to the fact that she was depicted as being good at writing (but not at speaking) Japanese. The Ore-man skits are kind of silly but cool. The third ED is energetic and cute. Megumi, for being kind (but sometimes maliciously manipulative). Good animation with a great colour palette.

What I Didn't: Most of the Opening and Closing Themes are standard bubblegum pop fare. Episode 7 just throws in a new character / classmate with very little background. The harem aspects, while not at the forefront of the series, are sometimes played for very cliched laughs. Megumi being bullied for her oversensitivity to her diet, and the fact that this was the punchline for some of the jokes. Mao is almost a walking stereotype. Starts to lose it's charm about half-way through. Last episode suffers from mood whiplash, like most shows of its genre. Insert song in Episode 12 was annoying...

Final Verdict: A cutesy little High School comedy that unfortunately runs out of steam toward the end, GJ Club is harem comedy at its most average. The characters aren't exactly the most riveting people (except for Kirara) and the jokes kind of fall flat or are otherwise grating at times, but it is well animated and has a great soundtrack.
