I've noticed that too. many of the animes that I watch this year are settled in a school:
karin, fate/stay night, high school girls, himawari, kage kara mamoru, kashimashi, kyou no go no ni, ouran, strawberry panic, the melancholy of (the greatest
) Haruhi Suzumiya....anf anf
probably there are many others...
Btw, speaking about Clubs... SOS BRIGADE RULEZ!!!!!!!!
QUOTE (chiisai_hana @ May 14 2006, 02:42 PM) I think it goes a bit beyond the club theme. I've noticed a lot of series lately that have the 'poor kid at rich school' or 'transfer student' theme, too.
Oh, you're right. I'm surprized I didn't catch that.
But still, there are other things too. Like how the name Haruhi is used in two anime (Ouran and Haruhi Suzumiya) and Keiichi is used in two as well (Higurashi and Haruhi Suzumiya again).
But then what about the 'game to anime' adaptation lately: Fate/Stay, Higurashi, Utawarerumono, Shuffle! and maybe some other's I've forgotten.
And of course a lot have these names that are a real mouthful:
- Ouran High School Host Club
- The Melanchonly of Haruhi Suzumiya
- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
