Ohran High School Host Club (General Discussion)

First shoujo romance by Bones.

Ohran Academy is a high school which rich people go to, but Haruhi is a common girl who won a scholarship. Because her mother died and she has been reaised only by her father, she isn't interested in fashion, and she acts like a boy.

One day, she happens to enter the Host Club(*) room, and breaks 8 million yen vase. Because her family is not rich, she cannot afford to compensate the vase. The leader of the club ordered her to gather 100 guests as setoff against the debts. In this way, Haruhi become the 7th member to host girl students.

(*) Generally, the “Host Club” is a nightclub for ladies where male staffs serve female guests sitting next to them.

AAAAAA!!! The BEST! 8)

This is truly the funniest show this season and the one I can honestly say I enjoyed the most. I love shoujo in general, but this anime is simply above simple shoujo. It THE shoujo of shoujo. Love it!

Here's the quick rundown of the plot (based on episode 1, which just aired).

Spoiler:


Oh, I loved this show so much. I am sure the girls will like the bishounen that are all over the place, but as a guy I must say this is truly one of the best shows this season. The way they are lampooning classical shoujo is simply beyond belief.

You all gotta see it! 8))))

Well, maybe I'm not as enthusiastic yet as MrProphet, but I enjoyed this show, too. This is the first time I've knowingly heard Maaya Sakamoto, and all I have to say is: wow! She...is...great.

Very promising show. I was expecting a little more seriousness with the comedy, but perhaps that will come. Or perhaps the comedy will be enough.

All the characters are interesting and attractive. And the girl-surrounded-by-attractive-guys feel is so well done that even I can almost get the thrill of it.

I kept laughing when Kyoya went on refering to Hani as "Hani-senpai". Shows how much respect he has for the little guy who works hard to catch the fangirls in the Host Club's net.

It's hard out there for a shota... 8)

I've been waiting for this!

Truly a great adaption from the manga. I really enjoyed the animation, it was smooth and very clean. The only disappointment were the voices... as a fan of the drama CD series cast, it was difficult for me to see the character and not hear the voice I'd expect come out. The new cast, besides Suzumura Kenichi (who actually just switched roles), needs to work on their voice distinctiveness a bit... They don't sound very "special". However, besides that, everything else was well done, especially the humor. I think I'll try a few more episodes and see how it goes... :3

Saw ep 1 and it's surpringly funny. I didn't give it much thought and brushed it aside until today. I am glad I took a chance on it.

Great. Even better than I have ever expected from BONES.

But the, it's from the director of Ojamajo Doremi, so it has to be flawless.

Doremi-fansubs will definately pick up this title.

I personally liked the anime version wayyy more than the manga. Honestly I didn't enjoy the manga that much but the anime was great.

This more than exceeded my expections. I didn't know much about the anime just that bones was working on it. Walked away very happy, everything in the first ep is very balanced the drama bits were nicely done. Definitely looking forward to this one.

Hey, we have Maaya Sakamoto and Kenichi Suzumura in the same show! This sure sounds like Gundam SEED Destiny.

I walked in on this completely blind, and was going to abandon it, deeming it a BL show. Okay, the ending caught me by complete surprise. It's decent enough first episode that I might continue it, though I think my sister is going to LOVE this show, so I might not have much of a choice anyway.

Exclamation HOST CLUB; fansubs?

has anyone here read the manga Ouran High School Host Club? it's currently being printed by Shoujo Beat in USA.

Anyway. this shoujou is complete gold. it's a comedy- and yes, trust me, it's funny. it's a MUST read!!!

well, to get to the point, it already started airing in Japan so the raw should be available but I haven't seen any notices from any fansub groups... does anyone know if it's going to get fansubbed at all???

PS. the opening and ending are up at youtube.com just incase anyone's interested...

I'm already in love with show. As someone commented before I, too, expected it to be a bit more serious but the extra comedy elements really had me giggling. Once I see it subbed, I know I'll be on the floor rolling. I don't think I've seen that many rose petals outside of an Utena episode. I think Tamaki was having them shipped in by the truckloads. I'm definitely in for the long haul on this series. Maybe if it's successful in Japan we can get a Hana Kimi anime.
