Popular Book Ouran High School Host Club, Vol. 1 After reading volume 1: (1 star)I couldn't stand the art (having seen the anime first), and ended up selling my only volume off at a con bring and buy without even finishing it! Glad I went back to it though...After reading up to volume 3:(4 stars)I can imagine that most manga/anime fans will have probably seen or heard of the anime adaptation of Ouran before picking up the manga. Those wanting more of the same should be pretty happy with the manga, as it follows the anime almost to-the-letter so far, plus there is the certainty of new material that goes beyond where the anime series finished.Ouran High School Host Club is basically reverse-harem shoujo crack at its finest: a normal teenage girl is mistaken for a boy, knocks over an expensive vase by accident and somehow winds up paying off her debt by masquerading as a boy and becoming part of the school's Host Club - where filthy rich pretty boys with too much time on their hands entertain filthy rich pretty girls with too much time on their hands.So the series is about a normal (albiet quite sharp and cynical) girl, who spends her time surrounded by a doting group of various beautiful boys: what's not for a teenage female reader to like? And yes, it sounds pretty rubbish when you explain it like that, but there are 2 great things that make Ouran deserving of its 4-star score:1. Character depth and relationships: outwardly the Ouran characters are pretty shallowly designed - there's your glasses-wearing guy, stoic guy, babyface guy, twins etc. etc. but once you get into reading the series their personalities, backstories and interactions with each other make them much more unique people (albiet still comedically over-the-top people).2. Sense of humour: the way the author plays with the boundary between normal ('poor') people and the filthy rich Ouran students is hilarious, plus some funny moments come simply from the range of character traits of the Host Club members, and subversion of them.The only thing that lets the manga version Ouran down for me is the artwork - originally I was really turned off by the art style in issue 1 as the characters seemed way uglier than their anime counterparts. However, the giant eyes do get steadily downplayed as the series goes on, and after flicking through a random copy of vol. 10 in the shops one day I could see that the art did eventually converge more with the look of the anime.After reading up to vol. 9:(5 stars)Absolutely loving this manga series! The art has got a lot prettier and more consistent now that I'm on volume 9, making it easier to read and more enjoyable all round. So far there has only been one chapter with events that I don't recall from the anime - everything else is very similar, and with the improvements to the artwork I'm enjoying the manga now at least as much as I enjoyed the anime, which is just what I wanted from it.What I love about reading manga over watching anime though is that you do it at your own pace, so I can read quickly past some of the silly school side stories but savour the moments of character development and chuckle-able funny bits :)After reading the entire series (18 vols):(4 stars)As the series progresses it loses a lot of the comedy antics and becomes more of a drama. There are also parts where I felt it was being stretched out with little arcs that were not needed. Overall though there was enough quality in the content that it kept me coming back right up to the end, and I'm glad I saw it through. Its always quite a big event to finish a long series that you've been collecting for several years, and this was no exception.

  3. Overall Rating ASynopsis Created by Bisco Hatori, the series follows Haruhi Fujioka, a scholarship student at the prestigious Ouran High School Haruhi is a girl, but she got gum put in her hair so she cut it short, and wears boys clothes This wouldn t be terribly important, but one day she stumbles across the school s Host Club The Host Club is basically a place for six idly rich pretty boys to be idly rich pretty boys, and idly rich pretty girls to come and fawn over them and pretend the boys a [...]


  4. Ouran High School Host Club is one of those manga that I had previously avoided on the basis of its being too flamboyantly shojo that is, intensely fascinated with lovely bishuonen and the charming sparkles that seem to swirl about them when they re at their most heart meltingly beautiful I lost interest in all that when I was, like, 14 after realizing that many shojo comics focused on bishounen seemed to take themselves too seriously Then one day I happened to flip through the first volume of t [...]


  5. I did not particularly like this I am sure part of it may be that I am not the right demographic for this the book is part of the Shojo Beat series, which is meant for teen girls But for me, the main issue is that this light school comedy is a bit difficult to read and follow The panels are extremely cluttered with text for one Two, the plot is light, and to be honest, not handled the best way The premise is a girl on scholarship in a very high fancy high school She has to work a debt for a scho [...]


  6. Cute, quirky, funny, that s the Ouran High School Host Club for you Personally, I thought the anime was better the manga was kinda boring and the artwork wasn t the BEST But still a good manga, and an awesome anime Now that I ve read through the whole manga, I can definitely tell you that it gets better The artwork improves significantly, the story builds and the characters develop very well It s a fantastic manga and remains to be one of my favorites.



  7. Guess what guys Guess what I was FINALLY persuaded into giving manga a go I used to not even bother when my friends recommended me manga, I don t know why Maybe because I looked at these types of books as abnormal, compared to regular books these days Well, it turns out I ve been missing out on a lot these last few years At first I was really slow in understanding what was going on, especially since this was my first manga chapter I ve ever read and I ve been told the formatting is not suited fo [...]


  8. I saw the anime series which was very well done so decided to check out the manga Volume 1 was pretty good so can t wait to check out the next volume in the future It s about a girl named Haruhi Fujioaka who is mistaken for a guy at a host club and must repay her debt to them after breaking an expensive vase I read this at mangareader ouran high so def check it out if you d like to read it.


  9. I watched the show and loved it one season not cool so I had to buy the first in the manga series I just laughed all throughout the book like I did with the show Amazing satire I really enjoyed it and I can t wait to get the next in the series I also can t wait to see if Tamaki and Haruhi ever get together 3


  10. I loved revisiting this it was so fun and energetic, just as I remembered I can t wait to get familiar with the characters and relationships again and finally see how this ends Haruhi is the best.


  11. OMG This book is a laugh riot The artwork is first rate, and I love the background detailing I wasn t sure at first that I would like this one I probably would have gotten a bigger laugh out of it if I hadn t known ahead of time that Haruhi was a girl For the first part of the story I kept waiting for the other guys in the club to find out and it kinda made the story seem to drag out at that point for me But after that point I really enjoyed it It was funny There were tons of tongue in cheek jok [...]


  12. This comic is one that I learned about after watching the show and I decided to read the series as well.Haruhi is an average teenage girl who, after studying very hard, gets into a prestigious private school full of rich people She is shocked by their laziness in class and free lifestyles and in her search for a quiet room, she stumbles into a music room that seems to be unused but is in fact the room for a host club, which she ends up being forced into after she breaks an overly expensive vase [...]


  13. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY Omg I m FANGIRLING say most of the comments on the popular anime of THE OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB.I really enjoyed the anime on YouTube those of you reading this that have not seen the anime should go check it out Go you re still here, aren t you I mean I REALLY enjoyed it and so began my little obsession I couldn t resist giving it a go when I saw it on my local library s shelf At first when I started it, it was slightly hard accumulating to the back to front Japanese comi [...]





  14. Some Like It Hot meets Twelfth Night meets high school Haruhi has no intention of disguising her sex, she is simply looking for a quiet place to study, and the libraries are full as she stumbles into what she assumes to be an unused music room and directly into the arms of the Ouran High School Host Club This host club is comprised of six wealthy young men with too much time on their hands who cater to the female elements of the school in order to amuse themselves They are outside of Haruhi s us [...]


  15. Let me start out by saying that i will be writing one review for this manga At first i had watched the anime that was adapted from this manga and i fell in love with the characters It is a funny, cheesy kinda gender bender romantic plot.Compared to the anime, the manga had far details and other stories involved.Ok enough with the anime.As i mentioned before the plot is a comedy, cheesy romantic, gender benderHaruhi is a scholarship student at an exclusive rich high school called Ouran High Scho [...]


  16. Haruhi Fujioka is a fictional school located in Bunky , Tokyo Because of the superlative cost of the school uniform, Haruhi resorts to wearing long slacks, polo shirts and vests Combined with her large glasses and tousled short hair, Haruhi s look causes her to be confused for a boy.Looking for a quiet place to study, Haruhi stumbles upon the Third Music Room, the working place of the Ouran Host Club, a group of six extremely attractive male students Takashi Morinozuka, called Mori Mitsukuni Han [...]


  17. Ahahahahah I was recommended this series due to my love of the bizarre, and a love of satire Good call, unnamed friend Good call.I laughed so hard reading this first book that tears _actually_ streamed down my face This first book has done a great job at setting the tone for the series a massive satire of glamour and glitz that plays the associated tropes straight most of the time but to extremes.One defining moment for me is when the protagonist is retrieving their lost items from a pond, looki [...]


  18. Honestly, I just love all the members of the Ouran High School Host Club so darn much It probably helps that I ve already watched the anime and formed attachments to them all Even if I know exactly how the plot plays out, I don t even care because I love being around this gang.




  19. The first manga I read and also the first anime I watched.I absolutely enjoy it,I fall in love with all the characters, I was laughing so hard that make me cry.


  20. So this is a review for the overall series Let me just sy that it was soooo amazing It was funny, violent and romantic at times It had everything a good manga needs So I knew from the beginning that Tamaki love Haruhi His depression whenever someone touched her was so hilarious and cute He would sit in a corner some where and just mourn in his sorrows LOLI have to say that the twins were my favourite characters They are so michievious and sneaky it made me laugh so hard at times Like when they p [...]


  21. Welcome to the Host Club Ouran High School Club is a hilarious high school gender bender set at one of the oddest places I have seen in anime manga in a long time A Host Club is basically where usually rich girls go to have men fuss over and romance them So needless to say, Haruhi, a poor girl who has just entered this school on a scholarship, has never even heard of such a thing While looking for a quiet place to study, Haruhi opened the doors to what looked like an unused music room and found [...]


  22. I know, I know years ago I told myself I would never give into the cheap trend that is manga Yet here I am, and actually I don t regret it.I let myself indulge in Ouran as the only anime I ve ever watched all the way through, so I figured I may as well let myself indulge in the manga Also, Amy read it and said it s good and she says the ending is amazing, but do I really want to wade through all 18 books to get there Also, I basically am Kyoya in real life, so I have to read this just to see of [...]


  23. Very good series First off, this is a parody of all the cliches in the realm of shoujo, so there of course, will be a lot of cliches and cliches getting made fun of Despite the overuse of dialogue, I think Ouran is without a doubt one of the best, funnest, and interesting shoujo series out there Haruhi is a breath of fresh air I would rate her as the best shoujo heroine I ve come across and there have been a lot with her sharp wit and honest, down to earth nature Tamaki is also one of my favorit [...]
