Every Friday, Clubhouse will highlight a campus organization to increase awareness of the variety of clubs available to students.

If you think your organization is interesting and deserves to appear in Clubhouse, send your club's name and a brief description to

This week's club is Anime No Kai. Although its name may not make it apparent, it's a club dedicated to Japanese animation.

"The purpose (of the group) is to show Japanamation," said John Harp, senior engineering major and Anime No Kai member.

According to Harp, Japanamation is Japanese-made cartoons. Anime No Kai, in its three years of existence, has collected and traded many Japanamation tapes with its fellow groups around the country.

Weekly showings of these tapes are held from 2 to 5 p.m. Fridays in the University Center Satellite.

In the following weeks, Anime No Kai will hold a bake sale to raise money to buy more tapes. The group is small, but is slowly growing and is always looking for new members.

If you are interested in joining or would like more information about the organization, contact Debora Castellanos at (713) 649-0435.
