* Ouran High School Host Club, a 2006 anime series concerning a wealthy school’s club and the female (assumed to be a male because of her tomboyish appearance) who joins it. The 26-episode series was produced by BONES and VAP.
* Sasami: Mahou Shoujo Club, a 13-episode magical girl series from AIC Spirits, broadcast in 2006. It is a spin off of the long running Tenchi franchise.
