About the Author

Bisco Hatori made her manga debut with Isshun kan no Romance (A Moment of Romance) in LaLa DX magazine. The comedy Ouran High School Host Club is her breakout hit. When she's stuck thinking up characters' names, she gets inspired by loud, upbeat music (her radio is set to NACK5 FM). She enjoys reading all kinds of manga, but she's especially fond of the sci-fi drama Please Save My Earth and Slam Dunk, a basketball classic.

The manga is definitely one of my favorites so far.

Great writing, nice set, beautiful artwork... I love the sidebar comments that Hatori puts in the books!

Also, the memo pad that came along with it is very cute and a wonderful addition to this box set!

I absolutely love this series and was absolutely ecstatic when I found the entire box set! It was like a dream come true!

The one thing I can say about this manga is that it's incredibly sweet. The plot that was created here is enough to make a big grin spread across your face. It's like no matter what happened to you before--whether you had a bad day or not--as soon as you open this manga, a big smile forms the moment you read. The characters themselves are so mischievous and funny that you'll find yourself reading this series over and over again because it's so uplifting!

Of course--like ALL manga--it shares its moments of drama, but I believe MOST of you (keyword: MOST) will find the ending incredibly sweet! After all, there's no fun giving out spoilers! Just read and you'll know what I'm talking about! (#^.^#)

Overall, a terrific collection to own! (◠ ‿ ◠)

I was so excited to receive my Host Club Box Set and when I opened it, I noticed I had 2 Volume 8s and no 9. Sooo...yeah. Perhaps it's a good thing to check over your work when they're placed in the boxes!

About the story...

The story line is simple to follow and the characters get deeper as the story continues. The characters are diverse and the author has a great sense of humor (both in the stories as well as author notes sprinkled through out the series). I'm not giving the story line justice, but if you don't know the story line look it up on wikipedia [...].

About the Box Set and the books...

When the package arrived, it was securely packed away with little to no movement for the box set to be damaged while being shipped. I received all 18 volumes and the exclusive memo pad. The box it comes in is nice for storage as well as being visually appealing. The size of the box set is smaller than PC unit but slightly bigger than a woman's tennis shoe box, but the weight is not heavy.

The books themselves take very little time to get used too. Pretend you have an American style book. We read it front to back (as a whole book) and left to right (from page to page). The Ouran Host Club books read in the opposite. They read from back to front (as a whole book) and right to left (from page to page). It sounds confusing but the author is nice enough to explain on the first page if you start to read it from the wrong end in every volume.

The pages of the books are sturdy for multiple readings, but if it gets caught on anything it will tear easily (mine was a paperclip). The pages are also done in a black, white, and grey scale. There are no colored pictures except for the coverings for each volume.

I know this was a lot, but I didn't want there to be any surprises because these are great books, but a bit pricey. They do have a one season anime that I like as well if you want more.

If you love silly romances, boys who have way too much free time on their hands, and a secret heroine in disguise you'll love Ouran. I started the series by watching the anime and quickly fell for Tamaki, the princely like figure who is simply trying to find happiness in the situation he lives in, Kyoya, the smart and sinister boy who wants nothing more than to be out of his brothers shadows, Honey, the boy Lolita that just wants to be himself even if it is an overly cute character, the Hitachin twins, two boys that look completely the same but want to be seen as separate people, Mori, the protective guardian and loyal friend to Honey, and last but not least Haruhi, the young girl in a new world who gets swept up in the comical situations the group of boys get themselves into, all while pretending to be a boy herself. Every character is full of heart, and as it is in both the books and the series, easy to fall for. Since the anime and manga are pretty different (the anime never finished the series for example) this was undoubtedly the best hundred bucks I've ever spent. The box came in pristine condition, and gave me the fulfillment I needed when the anime ended so abruptly. You won't regret buying this at all!

Got this for my daughter's birthday and am now addicted to the book series as well. I'd watched some of the animated version and am torn - I like the book series just as much, maaaaybe a bit more than the anime right now!

Great writing, nice set, beautiful artwork... I love the sidebar comments that Hatori puts in the books! Getting a peek at her creative process is an extra bonus. If you like well written, character driven stories, take a look at Ouran Host Club - you won't be disappointed!

The story is hilarious, the important characters have gradually been given enough depth to meet the page-count. There are plenty of twists and turns as the series progresses, but it is not so unpredictable that you cannot exercise your head and think about what will happen next.

People who do not like Shojo manga because they think the content is too "girly" just need to stop and read this series to change their opinion.

Outside the story, the paper is of excellent quality, the books are bound well and the print is very good.

Must recommended for all comedy-lovers!
