    If anyone can elaborate, I'd be grateful, since I know nothing on these.

    You don't have to elaborate for an index. If you want to say what each of the clubs is that would be okay.

    • Black Hole High (Strange Days At Black Holsey High) has the main characters the only members of the science club.

    Added a short description to K On. I'm not familiar with Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukanai, but it might count. Also, does Haruhi Suzumiya count? The SOS Brigade is (more or less) a school club...

    Haruhi Suzumiya does count, I believe.

    A manga called Moon Boy also revolves around an earth rabbit girl joining a club to fight evil foxes.

    I don't know enough about Haruhi to make a call. Can I have details?

    Black Hole High goes under live-action tv.

    Her club, as stated numerous times in-universe, is technically not a club. So if we're to believe Kyon (and, if I remember correctly from reading the books, most of the rest of North High), then no, it's not an example.

    Never seen it, but Suicide Club?

    Oh, Haruhi Suzumiya basically revolves around a girl creating her after school club called the SOS Brigade, which tries to discover anything supernatural.

    High School Musical isn't live-action tv. It's a series of movies, live-action film specifically.

    ^^ Suicide Club has no school clubs I can recall. I do not think the central character was high school age anyway.

    ^ That last one might work for this YKTTW too.

    Anything else? Or are we done here? If you think it's ready, toss a hat.

    ^ IDK, those ZCE should probably be expanded first, yeah?
  • March 25, 2013

    ^ It's an index. You don't have to add description to every entry although that would be nice.

    I think this is ready to launch.

    They're not ZCE because it's an index but I think if everything else is going to have a description then those should too.

    HSM is about the musical Drama Club and how it comes to include characters from the Science Club and the basketball team.

    Strange Days At Blakeholsey High is about the five members of the Science Club.

    Glee is about the school's Glee Club where they sing and dance to pop songs.

    • Hitohira focuses on two rival clubs, the Drama Club and the Drama Research Society. The school the clubs are in are uncomfortable with overlap, and the two must compete to stay official.
