List Rules Vote up the anime with the most exciting and compelling after-school activities.

Only in anime can you find an after-school club whose objective is saving the world, hunting for ghosts, or researching telepathy. Of course there's also anime about more typical after-school activities, revolving around scuba diving, astronomy, or marching band. Not a list about school-based anime, this list solely ranks titles that follow after-school activities.

These anime follow the club members as they discover more about one another and about themselves, their adventures brimming with plenty of laughs and plenty of tears. Whether you have an enthusiasm for science fiction, looking for something with a bit of romance, in need of some teenage angst, or a fan of all things ecchi, this list has all of the above and more. Despite their after-school setting, these anime are enjoyable any time of day, so dive right in!
