School clubs often advertise their activities, but the GJ Club’s goings-on are a mystery. Kyouya “Kyoro” Shinomiya recently joined and became the only male member of the five-person club. In addition to Kyoro, there are Mao Amatsuka, the club president who has a tendency to bite Kyoro when she gets angry or shy; Megumi Amatsuka, Mao’s serene little sister who always makes tea and desserts for the club members; Shion Sumeragi, a demure chess prodigy; and Kirara Bernstein, a meat lover with a strong feline personality. All four girls feel some kind of interest in Kyoro. With the girls’ idiosyncratic and likeable personalities, Kyoro’s stay in GJ-bu will never be boring, for better or worse.
