Well, we kinda made our own club through our school. We met this awesome woman, a youth worker who took us to our first expo and everything and since then we've just planned cosplays and meets and whatever so i guess that counts right?
KUMAGOURO BEEEEEEEAAAAAMM!!!!

My school does, but the thing is, only Japanese people or those who speak it turn up, and so we all naturally start speaking in Japanese, which, unfortunately, is not great for those who don't speak it. D:

Some brave ones still come and remind us all to stick to English. xD Works like a charm~

But, at my secondary school, me and my friends managed to set up an anime club (they get lots of anime DVDs off eBay), and every Monday when school ended, the librarian would let us use the TV and sit around watching it. 8D We watched all of Fruits Basket, we watched Advent Children, and we also had a little watch of D.N.Angel. ^-^ I was in Year 11, so I had to leave, but, at the moment, they're watching xxxHolic, and Azumanga Daioh. ^^

And I've heard that lots of unis have anime clubs~ which is awesome. ^^ I know Bath Uni has one. ;D


Our school, Ness, lol

Yes, we have an anime manga group, for all the years. It seems this year we took in a load of year 7 boys, not girls, sad to say haha. Oh well, the next prez is another girl (I was first prez cos' I was the one who wanted the group because we need some more of us people here in school lol) anyway, it's fun but the kids don't listen. I'll find a cane or a keyblade somewhere >:)

Our school never had one or ever will have one Im willing to bet. :(

There are chavs everywhere and as fas as I know there are only two people at school who actually know what Anime or Manga is... And they're both year 8s...

Everybody else just says: "Oh... You like to watch that Pokemon animation stuff. Thats stupid" :evil:

Well... I just think you should say: "Well, the programmes you watch, Hollyoaks, Eastenders, Pimp My Ride, and . like that... Pokemon, hell, a KID'S show beats the amount of intelligence that programme shows. But speaking of intelligent programmes, [whisper audibly] please don't run away[/whisper], there is more to Japanese animation than JUST Pokemon and the . you see on Jetix. Some of the plots some of these more obscure shows have could kick your intellect to the kerb." :}

Then snigger as you imagine their brains being completely blown out of their ears as they attempt to understand Evangelion or Akira. 8D

Just try not to get stabbed, lol.

^lol it could work, but most of them are too stupid to even attempt to understand stuff like that, now that i think about it, they'll prejudice the cosplay fandom because of a 'cosplay' slide my best friend had on his presentation on anime :(

Ugh, no chance. I know what, 6 people who know what anime is, and only 3 of those actually like it. =___=; And this idiot kept going on at me about 'drawing weird pokemon pictures.'

Ugh, I kept getting that too. This group of guys kind of looked at me weirdly in art and then got out their phones and said they'd seen something similar to my drawing (which was a chibi version of Sailor Moon), and... it was hentai. D< In year 9.

Lol actually I think in hindsight I should have told them: "hey, you know anime and manga is a huge umbrella encompassing a huge variety of genres and subgenres? So there is porn and suchlike? Ha, you retards." :P

I wish my school did-ne, but that would never happen-ne.
I would suggest it to the teachers, but they'd probably ask me to write an essay on how this would be educational and benefit the pupils' learning-ne.

My college has an anime club, but like I have never been to it.
1. It's on when I have a lesson.
2. The people that go are all really close knit.
3. I'm too cool obvz.
Isn't as cool as you.

My school doesn't nor will it ever. I did see a couple of year elevens (I'm year 10) googling and swooning over Brock from Pokemon, but they're leaving soon anyway. Everyone else is a chav obsessed with their boyfriend/getting a boyfriend (all girls D: ) and I'm known as the midget who likes creepy Japanese things.
The only clubs are sports clubs or ones run by sixth formers. I would rather die than go to my sixth form and the college I plan on going to doesn't have one either. I'm going to be on MSN talking anime until the day I DIE D:

Not that I know of. But there is a group of kids in year 8 (my sister's year) who all like anime and manga XD And we saw them squeeing over anime guys. So there is hope for our school yet!

Me and my friends started a manga club while we were in sixth form. One of us still keeps it open and I go back every now and again to see whats going on. I'm hoping it'll continue once the last of us has left, it was a good thing :)
