the story followed the daily lives of five high school boys who shared the same feature of wearing glasses. they were also members of the Glasses Club, sharing their passion for eyewear, even towards the ultimate goal of making a functional x-ray glasses. Akira was the leader of the club. Yukiya was the most intelligent member, also Akira's childhood friend. Takumi was an airheaded member. Mitsuki was invited by Akira to join the club, thus held deep admiration towards Akira. Hayato was the only member who wore fake glasses.
despite the seemingly straightforward plot, the series was hilarious and absolutely exaggerated. the main focus was on their creation, which more than often ended up with an explosion. at the same time, the club tried so hard to increase their budget, which also ended equally in failure. to make the story a little more in depth was the involvement of the Student Council, who was pulling shady stunts behind, making sure that the Glasses Club would be disband in the near future. even though the series looked less interesting than our average plot, it was equally entertaining once we got started with the episodes. it may not be the best, but it was definitely unique enough for a laughter or two.
