"If you do nothing, your youth will pass by in an instant. That is why we formed the Going Home Club."Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku
— Sakura Domyoji
, or Chronicles of the Going Home Club
, is an ongoing comedy manga series written and illustrated by Kuroha and serialized in Square Enix's Gangan Online magazine. An anime adaptation by Nomad consisting of twelve episodes aired in July 2013.
It's common for Japanese students with no intention of joining an after-school club to be referred to as having joined the "Going Home Club;" So when freshman Natsuki Andou declares her intention to join the eponymous club, she's surprised to find that her new pal Karin Tono
has been led to believe in a literal Going Club Home. As Natsuki comes to find out, the club has a presence in the school, and is staffed by three of it's most bizarre upperclassmen:
There's Ordinary High-School Student
Sakura Domyoji, whose inheritance is her grandmother's scissors, Botan Ohagi, whose family are heirs to the highly-guarded Hagizuki-ryuu martial arts style and who once wrestled a Brown Bear (And a Grizzly Bear, and Polar Bear
), and Claire Kokonoe, who's the daughter of a company executive and almost bought Karin a stationary store when the school store had run out of her favorite color of eraser.
Espousing their belief that life will pass before their eyes unless
they're having fun, the Going Home Club is dedicated to having as much fun as possible before going home.
Those living in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand may watch the anime legally at Crunchyroll.
