We're going to Joliet West by the way.
We did recieve a list of clubs and an anime club(or anything of the sort) wasn't on it so we are assuming there isn't one :sweatdrop

Everybody brings in their own stuff so forth and so on.
You need to find a teacher if it is a high school or middle school to be the sponsor. I suggest looking in the art department first and moving out. PM if question or something.
Just something to look at if curious. http://www.myspace.com/treadsilently

A good way to sell your anime club to your school is that it is a relatively wholesome after-school activity, and billing it as a genuine way to learn about foreign culture can't help enough. You will have to be careful as to what anime series you intend to show--Fullmetal Alchemist and Inu-Yasha are okay, but I'd avoid Hellsing and Evangelion, at least to start out with. The last thing you need is ruffle feathers.
It would be even better if you can get outside speakers to come in--say, someone from the Japanese consulate, or even a professor who specializes in Japan or Asian studies (or even anime itself--the University of Chicago still has Patrick Drazen around, if I'm right). The local club invited me to give a talk on the fact that I taught the only anime-based college course in the Pacific Northwest. It was a lot of fun for all involved.
