Kaminoki High School Cheer Association (神ノ木高校チア同好会 Kaminoki Kōkō Chia Dōkōkai?) is a student group featured in the Anima Yell! series.


Originally formed by Kohane, Hizume, and Uki, it functioned as a means to promote cheerleading throughout Kaminoki High.

Although not considered a school club, the Cheer Association would nevertheless give the girls recognition as an official student group. The association could not have a budget or its own clubroom, but would instead be able to secure a location in school to practice, which was an issue for the girls prior to its formation. In addition, the Cheer Association is allowed to publicly advertise their group and accept cheer requests at school sporting events.

Ms. Inukai had helped the three form the Cheer Association, although at first she mistakenly believed the girls were forming a cheer squad, which is technically different from cheerleading. She recommended that the girls practice in the old AV room at their school, which they decided to use instead of the school roof.[1]

Although the primary purpose of the Cheer Association is to promote cheer-related activities, the group has also been known to support the general well-being of the student body, which need not involve performing on stage as cheerleaders.

Kotetsu, a classmate of Kohane and Uki, would become the association's fourth member.
