A fun thing to do with your Anime/Manga Club is to have a Cosplay party...you can either just have the teens show up in their cosplay (costumes based on their favorite anime/manga character) or you can actually have a workshop and make pieces. I've never done that but it sounds fun. I always have to be very careful about insisting on the appropriateness of the costumes. They have a tendancy to be pretty racy, especially the girls, so I am very strict about how much skin is showing, etc. You can have prizes for the best costumes, you can take pictures, you can watch a film while everyone is wearing their costumes, you can eat pocky or fortune cookies or maybe just use pencil and paper and have the kids design future costumes. Have fun!
