Haganai’s story centres around the experiences of a new transfer student in the St. Chronica’s Catholic school. Kodaka Hasegawa has problems adjusting because of his natural blond hair and fierce stare. As with all the other schools, his schoolmates don’t trust him, based on prejudices and ungrounded biases. The ‘yankee’ boy meets a similar soul at school – the anti-social Yozora Mikazuki whose only friend is school is… imaginary. The two form a club for learning social skills and name it The Neighbour’s Club.
The video shows all the main cast. You can also hear Kerakera’s theme song “Hitotsu dake”.
