According to MyAnimeList (see Producers section), AnimeNewsNetwork, CrunchyRoll, and a number of less reputable sites, an organization called "Kiyosumi High School Mahjong Club" took part in the production of the Saki anime. For anyone not familiar with Saki, it follows the Mahjong club from Kiyosumi high school as they compete to be the best in the nation. The websites listed all included "Kiyosumi High School Mahjong Club" under production, which is unusual for in-universe organizations.
First, can anyone confirm that this is legitimate and not just an elaborate trolling attempt (e.g. by screencapping the credits)? And if so, what does the organization do? Is it a real high school mahjong club which was used as inspiration for Saki, or were they involved in some aspect of the production process, or were they just thrown in as a sort of shout-out, or something else?
