Anime and Manga Review: Ouran High School Host Club
When we talk about anime, we always meant Japanese animation. And when we talk about Japanese animation, we cannot run from discussing about manga – or Japanese comics. Most manga will be adapted into animation sooner or later, mostly big titles which released in a series.
Ouran High School Host Club is a 15 volumes manga that was also produced into a 26 series animation, written by Bisco Hatori. It’s a real interesting teen romance manga which is surely to get burst out with laughter with its many unconventional jokes and expression – work that is hard to find in any other animated works aside from Japanese manga and anime, I had to admit. The manga was released in 2003 but it was not until 2006 when they released the anime.
Ouran High School Host Club follows the story of a brilliant but poor high school student, Fujioka Haruhi. She is also a clueless and expressionless girl who knows and feels nothing on the affairs related to the heart. One day, she was accepted in a scholarship into a highly privileged school of Ouran High School where only the elite, rich with pedigree people go to school. There, she bumped into a group of people who calls themselves as The Host Club and met an accident. Due to the accident she was forced into working with the host club to pay her debt, and she also had to disguised herself as a boy. No one except the host club knows she’s a female student.
At Ouran Host Club, Fujioka Haruhi met with her seniors and fellow classmates – Tamaki Suoh, Kyouya Ohtori, Haninozuka Mitsukuni, Takashi Morinozuka, Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin (the twins). Her life seen dramatic changes and there she learns a lot of things – the meaning of love, family and friendship.
The best part and also what makes this anime special is actually largely in the character development. There are a few strong and cynical jokes but it’s not see as too much either. It has a lot of hidden messages and overall, it’s a fun anime to watch. The manga version has a lot more scenes not available in the anime version, so if you want the best of Ouran High School Host Club, consider reading the manga as well!
