Is it still worth the hype? |Ouran Highschool Host Club (2006)
This is it! The favorite Romantic Comedy of all time! Ouran Highschool Host Club!
Don’t you just love to see these pretty boys in your school and be able to flirt with them? Well not for Haruhi.
Haruhi Fujioka, an ordinary normal looking scholar student of Ouran Academy (well known as the most prestigious elite school). She just wanted a normal highschool life but, it didn’t turn out as much as she wanted to because she accidentally broke an 8,000,000-yen Vase, owned by the Ouran Host Club run by Tamaki Suoh (The ‘King’ President of Ouran Host Club).
(Favorite Characters: Kyoya Otori, Tamaki Suoh, Haruhi Fujioka, Takashi Morinozuka, Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin Brothers, and Mitsukuni “Honey-senpai” Haninozuka.)
To pay for the vase, she had no choice but to join the Ouran Host Club and be a Host for the Students. Bit by bit these Members of Host Club finally noticed that Haruhi is a Girl and not a Boy. And for her to continue being a host in the club, Tamaki and all the member of Host Club must keep it secret that Haruhi is a Girl. A whole lot of episodes of laughter and fun.
Surely you noticed that this anime was way back in 2006, but trust me if you watch this, I swear you’ll have fun with it!
You get to see also how all the members of Ouran Host club came to like and have a little crush for Haruhi, specially for Tamaki, Kaoru and Kyoya.
You’ll also see how these rich and elite students invest for this club, which Haruhi thinks it’s nonsense at first, and soon after came to conclusion that it wasn’t so bad and have fun with it, but of course without forgetting to pay ‘the’ debt.
CHARACTER I LIKE THE MOST:
Personally, I love silent type and strong type, so its Kyoya and Mori-senpai for me. I love how Kyoya gives that vibe of an independent handsome smart guy. I love how Mori-senpai becomes sweet and silent at the same time.
CHARACTER YOU’LL MOST LIKELY LOVE AND SIMP:
Kyoya Otori, is the character most likely people would simp on for his classy and charismatic character. As well as Mori-senpai for his simpable strong look. If you prefer a fun and easy to vibe with, I’m sure you’ll definitely go with Tamaki, Honey-senpai, Kaoru and Hikaru.
FREQUENTLY ASK QUESTIONS:
Q: Will Ouran High School Host Club Anime have a Season 2?
A: The manga was already finished, and some were still expecting for Season 2 for the last 14 years. But there’s no news if it’s going to be released or not. Still, you can enjoy their live action!
Q: Does Haruhi end up with Tamaki or Kaoru? (SPOILER ALERT!)
A: It’s true that Kaoru liked Haruhi, even though Kaoru knows that Tamaki also liked Haruhi. But for Haruhi, she liked Kaoru but as a friend only. Therefore, Haruhi ended up with the person she liked, Tamaki.
Q: Why is it confusing to guess which one is Hikaru and Kaoru? And why does Haruhi able to tell which one is which?
A: Honestly, even for me its really hard to guess whose who. But I personally think the one whose super open is Hikaru, and the one who’s emotional is Kaoru. I’m super impressed how Haruhi is able to tell the differences between these 2 twins.
How Ouran Highschool Host Club became one of my Favorite Anime of all time?
Anyone would really love to watch fun and light and fun anime specially this kind of anime. Some also prefer a gender-bender, gay-ships and harem type of anime, and yes, it’s literally the comedy for me because of its humor, romance, and legit fun it gives off. This is also that kind of anime that doesn’t go bad even if it’s been so long since it was release. Therefore, this never gets old.
The art style, ah yes, the art style is unique compared to other anime back then. And the trend of having unique art styles became popular from 2019 up until the present. That explains why this became on trend again. A lot of viewers are intrigued to see new art styles and animation with lot of strong hue colors. And I must say this is one of them.
