Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku Season 2 Release Date
Everyday, literally millions of school comedy anime are brought forth into existence. No joke. It’s a somewhat… saturated market where the term “sink or swim” springs to mind. But I’ll admit. Going Home Clubwent the way of the majestic rock.
The series opens with High school student Andou Natsuki going in for the opening ceremony. Afterwards she checks out some of the club adverts, the strangest of which is someone flailing around in a seal costume. When asked what club she’s going to join she responds by saying that she might just join the going home club, only to find out that it’s a real thing when her classmate, Touno Karin, decides to go with her to check it out. From their it goes into the details of the club activities, which seems to consist of doing strange things for fun. The comedy in this is a strange blend of absurdist elements, breaking the fourth wall and jokes about everyday school life. The closest anime I can compare the humour to is Gokujou Seitokai. The humour is strange, can be very random and mostly works pretty effectively. The series has a lot of great moments, particularly the musical chairs bit and the Schubert episode.
One thing I really appreciate about the series is that they actually use pop culture things they reference for actual jokes and parody purposes, which shouldn’t be surprising but there are a lot of series that just treat the reference as a joke by itself because “this thing exists, it’s funny” and that’s not only completely lacking in humour but just lazy, (glaring at you, Lucky Star.) A lot of their humour is also based around making fun of really stupid tropes, their gags about fan-service for example. They do have some jokes that don’t really work or just fall flat, but those are in the minority.
With great content of the anime, I hope that it will get another round of applause from us for its second season. A season two is what I will always wait for.
