In Japan, Japanese schools’ extra-curricular activities are centered on “club activities” organized by the students themselves. Each club will generally be assigned its own room or other facilities, will have an advisor (who doesn’t always appear on screen), and will have a powerful president (kaicho) who’ll be a significant character of some sort. For series that revolve around a specific club, the club’s president frequently replaces the Student Council president in importance.
