The anime centers on Minoa Asagaya, a new high school student in Sakaneko Private High School. Despite being a novice to anime, Minoa's classmate Arisu Kamiigusa invites her to make an "anime research club" at school. Through conversations with her classmate Miko Kouenji, as well as various anime-loving upperclassmen, Minoa gradually gets hooked on anime. While they stand against the student council's continuous efforts to disband their club, and they ignore the impending end of the world, they talk about anime, whether in Akiba, or in real-life "sacred place" anime settings, or the hot springs.
First-year high school student Asagaya Minoa is not much of an anime nerd, but there is a show that she watched as a child, but can't remember the name of. Kamiigusa Arisu, the well-to-do resident anime otaku of her class, might be able to help.
The new Anime Club is in search of new members. The odds are good, but the goods are a little bit odd -- perhaps in a good way.
The student council is threatening to abolish the Anime Club. The gang heads to Akihabara to clear their minds as they try to come up with a way to save the club.
Arisu explains to Minoa about anime prodution and business. In order to to prove their club is productive, the club is asked by the Drama Club to help with the costumes for their play. However Erika hits a roadblock when designing the costumes.
Summer has arrived and the anime club head to comiket, while there they meet Yang Beibei, a Chinese girl studying Japanese who tells them that anime is popular in China aswell.
The anime club is traveling to certain places in Japan that anime used for their stage (currently going to Oorai). Meanwhile, Kai is suffering from lovestruck from Miko and Minoa is trying to find her goal in the club while getting into a string of bad luck situations.
With the culture festival coming up, the anime club decide to participate to show their progress. However when the student council rejected the anime screening, they decided to do anime shorts which actually is harder than it looks.
Tsubaki proposes the anime club fill the auditorium or the club will be shutdown. The anime club must complete their presentation and get a full house in 2 days. Minoa and Maya find out their dad's secret (even though it's not a big deal).
The Anime Club discovers that they can solve people’s problems by recommending inspirational anime fit for their clubs. This works out great – a little too great.
Minoa approaches the principal to try to get him to bring back the Anime Club. She is locked inside the office with him, and the others scramble to help her get out.
The world is beginning to make less and less sense, and only Minoa seems to notice.
Minoa is desperately looking for a way to restore the world, but with the season ending, time is running out.
