The Anime Club was started in 2007 by Sarjikia Hendricks, Stefani Ritters, Rachael Carlton, and Jessie Cox. The club meets every other Monday, and the club invites anyone who loves anime, manga, and fun. What do you do in Anime Club? We have several activities that we plan such as games, cooking foods that are seen in some anime, cosplay, watch anime, party, and so much more. This is a great opportunity to connect with other anime lovers at Shelbyville High School, and beyond. Feel free to look us up on Twitter @SHSAnimeHorde!
