Mr. the Dragon! Would you light the torch already?!
The title of this article is conjecture. It is a noteworthy enough aspect of the franchise that has no name, canon or otherwise. Instead it was named via context clues such as its title, position, ownership, relevance, or any other identifier. See AltName for subjects which have fan names instead.
The anime club, of course, was filled with otakus

Otaku (オタク) is a Japanese term to describe someone with an obsessive interest in a certain subject or field, but is often used to characterize an individual with a love for anime or manga. In Equestria and its human counterpart, individuals with interest in anime were relatively rare, but not unheard of. Even more so since in Equestria, anime has been around for at least 1,000 years.


The oldest known otaku was King Sombra, who was apparently a fan of Attack on Titan in his youth (some 1,000 years prior to the Era of Harmony).[1] Assuming the characters Fluttershy drew during Nightmare Night were from in-universe anime series, she may have also been an otaku.[2] In the human world, a popular manga series akin to Sailor Moon was seen at the Anime club.
