Plot[
Kodaka Hasegawa, a transfer student to St. Chronica's Academy, has found it difficult to make friends because of his mix of brown-blond hair[1] (inherited from his deceased English mother) and fierce-looking eyes that make him look like a delinquent. One day, he accidentally comes across the equally solitary and very abrasive Yozora Mikazuki as she converses with "Tomo", her imaginary friend. Realizing that they lack social lives and skills, they decide that the best way to improve their situation is to form the Neighbors Club (隣人部 Rinjin-bu?), "an after-school club for people with no friends like themselves".[1] Other students with various backgrounds join the club: Sena Kashiwazaki is an attractive but arrogant idol, who has no female friends, and the men around her act as slaves; Yukimura Kusunoki is a feminine underclassman who idolizes Kodaka and strives to become manly like him; Rika Shiguma is a perverted genius scientist; and Kodaka's little sister Kobato thinks she is a vampire.[1]

Characters
Neighbors Club[edit]
Kodaka Hasegawa (羽瀬川 小鷹 Hasegawa Kodaka?) is the viewpoint character of the light novels; he is a transfer student who has been unable to make friends in his first month at St. Chronica's.[LN 1] He and Yozora Mikazuki start the Neighbors Club with the purpose of learning how to make friends and how to act in social situations. He has a gentle and balanced personality; but his unusual spotty-blond hair color, inherited from his late English mother, leads classmates to assume he is a violent and abusive delinquent and to spread defamatory rumors about him.[LN 1][ch. 6][ch. 10] Because of his reputation, Kodaka has become accustomed to conflicts and having to defend himself.[LN 1] Prior to the series, Kodaka has often moved because of his father's work as an archeologist. He has few memories related to home life, and no friends besides a single childhood friend from ten years ago, whose name eludes him at first,[LN 1] but later discovers is Yozora.[ch. 28,29] He does not show any romantic intentions towards anyone in the club until Sena's confession, which prompts him to reveal that he has been in love with her since their first meeting.[LN 9] Kodaka is voiced by Ryohei Kimura in the anime's Japanese dub, and by Jerry Jewell in the English dub.[2] For the live-action film, he is portrayed by Kōji Seto.[3]
Yozora Mikazuki (三日月 夜空 Mikazuki Yozora?) is a black-haired girl who is described as not having much going for her other than her looks.[vol. 3:char profile] She often argues with Sena, and is physically abusive towards the other members of the Neighbors Club,[ch. 12] especially Yukimura, whom she fools into working for the club as a crossdressing cosplay maid.[ch. 5][note 2] Ten years prior to the start of the series, she and Kodaka ("Taka") are childhood friends, but because she has short hair and wears a cap, Taka mistakes her for a boy and calls her "Sora".[ch. 28] The day before she moves, she plans to wear a skirt to reveal the fact that she is a girl, but becomes too embarrassed to meet him.[ch. 29] At the start of the series, she realizes Kodaka has transferred to her class. When she is irritated, she immerses herself as a model student who talks with her imaginary friend "Tomo-chan" until she is discovered by Kodaka.[LN 1][vol. 7:extra] She creates the Neighbors Club in order to reform their friendship,[vol. 7:extra] although Kodaka does not realize this until later in the story when she cuts her hair.[ch. 28,29] In the anime, Yozora is voiced by Marina Inoue in the Japanese dub, and by Whitney Rodgers in the English dub.[2] In the live-action film, she is portrayed by Kie Kitano.[3]
Sena Kashiwazaki (柏崎 星奈 Kashiwazaki Sena?) is a blonde-haired schoolmate who is described as "perfect in every way except for her personality."[vol. 3:char profile] The wealthy daughter of the school's chairman, Sena shows a dislike of all things "ordinary". She is both attractive and academically successful, but her arrogance precludes her from having female friends, and she treats her male classmates as slaves.[LN 1][ch. 2][3] She enjoys playing video games,[LN 1][ch. 3][ch. 4] particularly bishoujo (games where the main character tries to win over a girl) because they allow her to make female (if virtual) friends,[ch. 4] although some of the games have embarrassing adult content.[ch. 7][ch. 15] She does not get along with Yozora, who calls her "Meat" (肉 Niku?),[note 3][LN 1][ch. 3,9] Although she originally joins the Neighbors Club to learn how to make friends, she develops feelings for Kodaka after he scolds her during the swimming pool lessons near the beginning of the story.[LN 8] When it is revealed that she is arranged to marry Kodaka by her father fourteen years ago,[LN 7] Sena confesses her feelings and proposes to Kodaka.[LN 8] In the anime, Sena is voiced by Kanae Itō in the Japanese dub, and by Jad Saxton in the English dub.[2] In the live-action film, she is portrayed by Mio Otani.[3]
Kobato Hasegawa (羽瀬川 小鳩 Hasegawa Kobato?) is a junior high student at St. Chronica's Academy. She is very close to her an-chan (older brother) Kodaka, and behaves in a jealous and clingy way whenever he does not give her attention. After having watched an anime show called Iron Necromancer, she cosplays as "Reisys V. Felicity Sumeragi", an ancient vampire,[LN 1][ch. 6] although Kodaka still treats her as a little sister by having her eat her vegetables and take a bath.[LN 1][ch. 6] She often speaks in an affected fashion, but when she gets emotionally worked up, she reverts to a strong Kyūshū accent.[volume & issue needed] She joins the Neighbors Club to spend more time with Kodaka, and develops a rivalry with Maria, who is closest to her in age.[ch. 15] When the club visit her school's festival to watch her class film, it is revealed that she is quite popular in school, but has refused to make friends with her classmates despite their efforts to befriend her.[citation needed] In the anime, Kobato is voiced by Kana Hanazawa in the Japanese dub, and by Alison Viktorin in the English dub.[2] In the live-action film, she is portrayed by Sayu Kubota.[3]
Yukimura Kusunoki (楠 幸村 Kusunoki Yukimura?) is an effeminate schoolmate who is first introduced as Kodaka's stalker. A gullible student with low self-esteem, Yukimura believes Kodaka to be a romantic and masculine outlaw who lives life the way he wants to, and eagerly pledges to become his "underling" to become manlier.[LN 1][ch. 5] Despite claiming to be a boy,[ch. 15] Yukimura dresses in girls clothes, such as a French maid costume [ch. 8] or a bikini, as he takes to heart Yozora's flippant comments about masculinity and clothing.[ch. 15,25] Later in the story, Kodaka discovers that Yukimura is actually a girl, even to Yukimura's own surprise.[LN 5 ch 6-7] In the anime, Yukimura is voiced by Nozomi Yamamoto in the Japanese dub, and by Ashleigh Domangue in the English dub.[2] In the live-action film, Yukimura is portrayed by Sara Takatsuki, who has worked on live-action adaptations of Great Teacher Onizuka and Daily Lives of High School Boys.[3]
Rika Shiguma (志熊 理科 Shiguma Rika?, lit. "sigma science"[ch. 13:translator's footnote]) is a first-year genius-scientist student that the school gives her a special research room and excuses her from attending classes. She becomes attracted to Kodaka when he saves her during a disastrous lab experiment. Although she wears glasses and seems serious,[ch. 27] she is the most sexually forward club member, and converts any innocent thought into something perverted.[ch. 13,26] She enjoys reading BL (boys love) self-published magazines, and is especially aroused by stories that involve intercourse between mecha.[ch. 14] In the anime, Rika is voiced by Misato Fukuen in the Japanese dub, and by Alexis Tipton in the English dub.[2] For the live-action film, Rika is portrayed by Mao Kanjō.[3]
Maria Takayama (高山 マリア Takayama Maria?) is a ten-year-old nun and the club's staff advisor. She is very rude and immature, and often uses a variety of expletives when annoyed.[ch. 12] After Kodaka starts making her packed lunches, she becomes very affectionate with her new-found onii-chan (big brother), much to Kobato's annoyance.[ch. 15] She is easily manipulated by Yozora, who gets her to perform menial tasks by framing them as things adults would do.[volume & issue needed] Volume 8 of the light novels has a story where her teaching position is challenged.[LN 8] In the anime series, Maria is voiced by Yuka Iguchi in the Japanese dub, and by Kristi Kang in the English dub.[2] For the live-action film, Momoka Yamada portrays Maria.[3]
