Dark Magic Club
The Dark Magic Club at the Ouran High School has the leadership of Umehito Nekozawa, a student of the school. The club members spend a major part of their time in a lowly-lit room on objects that would be something as a form of dark magic.
The Zuka Club is known as a cultural club and its membership is mainly open to women. The club has a great variety of activities, like tea ceremonies as well as discussion groups, however its important function is that of theatric performance.
The Newspaper Club at Ouran involves just 3 members: Akira Komatsuzawa, Chikage Ukyo and Tomochika Sakyo. Their newspaper mostly includes articles relating to romance gossip on campus or that of power struggles amongst families that are causing divisions in the classes.
American Football Club
The American Football Club includes three members: Takeshi Kuze, Makoto Togoin and Hayato Tarumi. Takeshi Kuze, the captain of the club controls the biggest domestic share of fruit as well as vegetable imports. Hence the members are most of the time eating fruit.
