Meaningful time wasting: GJ-Bu (Good Job Bu/Club)

Good evening again~ Time for another review, also completed this recently.

Originated from a LN, runs for 9 volumes and is completed. There is a sequel LN, concentrating on the Junior High Division of the club, runs for 8 volumes so far and still running. The anime lasted for 1 season of 12 eps with an OVA lasted for 45mins.

Storyline is something hard to comment. Its pretty episodic and jumps out of nowhere, but its still very entertaining. Comedy elements are touching the roof, but not enough to break it. The gags are pretty out of the box. All of the girls are pretty imprefect as their flaws are pretty fatal, but thats the reason why its so funny. Ending was a bit ok, but ending pretty nicely, with 3 girls graduating from high school, bringing it to a nice end. The OVA came and they did a lot of ridiculous stuff again, much worse than the anime and 45mins well done. I would not hope for another season as the girls have graduated and its kinda hard for them to mess around anymore, but i would love an adaptation for the Junior High Division.

Art is done by Dogakobo, not bad, quality level pretty much as high as Plastic Memories, maybe better. Colors vivid, frames pretty smooth, and outlines crisp and sharp. They should invest such effort for Yuru Yuri back then, so that it wont jump ship to TYO instead.

Music is pretty much random and unique in its own way, i wouldnt complain, it kinda fits the anime well.

VAs are pretty mixed with veterans and newbies. Shimono Hiro, Uchida Maaya, Mimori Suzuko, Uesaka Sumire, Kido Ibuki, Morohoshi Sumire, Tsunematsu Ayumi. All did a good job, well Maaya’s voice is pretty unexpected for me. Morohoshi Sumire should really tone down on such yandere roles, kinda bad for her education, since she’s only 16.

Besto gurl? Maybe Kirara? Kinda hard to pick from this series as their flaws equalizes everything.

Score:

Story: 8/10

Art: 8/10

Music: 7.5/10

VAs: 8/10

Recommended if you are really hanging around with nothing to do, kinda of a time waster without much effort and it would not bore you.
