Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran was one of the first anime I’ve watched. I was only going to review more recent anime I’ve seen, but a post asking me about my first anime made me remember it. As well as my love of it. (Come on season 2, please!)

Ouran is about a scholarship student (Haruhi) and the Host Club; a group of boys who tends to the needs of young women. That may make them sound like prostitutes, but they’re gentleman who simply chat with and compliment the young ladies. Haruhi breaks a vase and then owes them a lot of money, so in order to repay it, she works for them. After giving her a makeover, they make her a member of the club. Even when they discover she’s a girl, they allow her to stay (as Tamaki, The Kings, thinks she’s cute). The series is then about their wacky adventures and overloading cuteness.

When I first watched it, I was new to anime. I thought it was weird, and had to watch the first few episodes a couple of time to get my head around it. Of course now, I realise it’s very tame in comparison to other animes. Ouran remains one of my favourites, as it’s hilarious and you just ship the fuck out of Tamaki and Haruhi.Because the anime doesn’t catch up to the manga, I read it because I couldn’t live knowing that they would end up together (and I wouldn’t see it).

Even if you’re one for darker animes, I suggest you give it a try. Even a boy I know (very ‘manly’) admitted he loved it. Sure there’s teased twincest and boys who seem pretty gay, but that makes it funny and different. Not to mention they’re very beautiful looking characters.

The show isn’t even a guilty pleasure, just a pleasure. I’m not ashamed of liking something as unique as Ouran! And if you’ve read my previous blogs/ reviews, you know I have a hard sense of humour. But, I can say, I laughed a lot at this! I also don’t obsess over many things; but this was definitely an exception. (note. it’s a reverse-harem).

    One of the first anime you watched? Nice. I really enjoyed this when I first watched it as a teen. I don’t think I’ll enjoy it as much now if I watch it again, but I still have good memories about it. I’m still wishing that they adapt the rest of the manga into anime so we get more satisfying conclusion in the anime.

      I honestly don’t know why they haven’t adapted it already. I tend to not re-watch anime’s personally, but I have actually re-read the manga for it.

        I know, right? Oh well. I like to remain optimistic about it. We get reboots of old anime and some second seasons take years to be approved, maybe it’ll be like this too. Who knows? I hope we get to watch next season.

        I like re-watching old favourites. They’re like my comfy blanket whenever I’m not in the mood to take the investment of watching a new series. And of course that goes for the manga as well.
