The story follows that of the original light novel series.

Kodaka Hasegawa, a transfer student of St. Chronica's Academy is having trouble in gaining friends as his schoolmates would commonly mistake him for a delinquent due to his appearance. 

Kodaka later meets Yozora Mikazuki, a natural loner who claims to have an air friend she calls "Tomo-chan". Knowing neither of them have skills or requirements in gaining friends, Yozora forms the Neighbor's Club - a club that intends to produce good neighbors towards their fellow students.

Consequently, the school chairman's only daughter - Sena Kashiwazaki - joins the club, as she is friendless due to her arrogant nature. Afterward, juniors such as Yukimura Kusunoki and Rika Shiguma join in. As well as Kodaka's little sister who has chuunibyou, Kobato Hasegawa. Likewise, Maria Takayama, a ten-year-old nun supervises the entire club.

As the Neighbor's Club, they take on activities that both gives them an insight on what to do with their future friends and a close friendship that is being shared between members.
