The Cherry Hill East Anime Club, an extracurricular group that devotes itself to all things relating to the popular Japanese cartoon form, has set aside Thursday, Oct 2 for “Ninja Day”. 

“[Ninjas] have been one of the main reasons for many of the animes being created, such as Naruto, and have caused a lot of stuff for pop culture,” said club member Bryan Birchmeier (’10).

For Ninja Day, participants are encouraged to dress like the fabled Japanese assassins. Black clothing will be satisfactory for the most part, due to the fact that the stereotypical ninja frequently carried weapons and wore head-coverings, neither of which are allowed at East.
