Only a few pages in, I was enchanted. Two more and I was enthralled. And a few more after that I was utterly in love with the entire concept, art, and wit expressed by Ms Hatori.
In Japan, host and hostess clubs are becoming more and more popular. These are venues where single women and men can go to experience exceedingly high quality of service, charming smiles, and romantic banter. Sexuality is rarely involved; instead, a male patron will find the fawning pouring of tea by a female hostess utterly exhilarating, just as a female patron will fall into the spell of being genuinely treated as a princess by her male host. It's a Japanese thing; I'm not expecting to see host/hostess clubs in my home town in America any time soon.
In Ouran High School Host Club, an exclusive private school admits a poor young student, Haruhi Fujioka, on scholarship. While stumbling about to find a quiet secluded place to study, she intrudes on the school's own Host Club, breaking a priceless vase. The hosts mistakenly take her for a boy, and recruit her as a host as well. She's to pay off her debt by providing excellent service.
Then they discover she's a girl and the crazy fun begins.
The stories that unfold are each delightful. Set against this backdrop of a rich private school and the host club members' own bizarre or tragic histories, they are charming tales of romance and family, of discovering "commoner's" wisdom and finding bonds in friendship. And all the while, tongue is firmly planted in cheek.
I look forward to the rest of the volumes!
While her androgynous looks do confuse most of the Host club members, they still believe that her natural charm is an asset to the club. Tamaki decides that she must acquire at least 100 requests to stave of her debt, a number which he later changes to 1000...Tamaki is quite flighty like that, but things become even more interesting when Tamaki finds himself drawn to the boyish charms of the newest host club member, and she is quite repulsed by his narcissistic, pompous attitudes. One thing's for sure, the school is in for a shock if the truth of Haruhi's sex ever gets out.
Chock full of beautiful boys (or bois, if you want to talk about Haruhi) this shojo manga is sure to have mass appeal.Read more ›
Tamaki makes a deal that if Haruhi can get 100 customer requests then they will consider just shrugging off the vase cost. The girls who come in can request who they want to talk too, so Haruhi is going to try her best to get 100 requests for her company. It's just that she is so naturally honest and trusting that she's an instant hit with the girls (who DON'T know she's a girl herself). The story is just so funny and heartwarming to see the relations with everyone build up. Tamaki also grows very fond of Haruhi and so he doesn't want her to just pay her debt and go.Read more ›
