As one of the two anime’s we will be choosing from to watch in September I wanted to give a little information about the anime version of Ouran High School Host Club. The anime and the manga start the same but the ending of the anime is not the same as the manga. That’s because the manga was still going in Japan at the time of the anime’s end. The anime’s ending does have closure so you don’t feel like ‘Why did I waste my time?!‘. A 26-episode anime television series aired between April 5 and September 26, 2006 on Japan’s Nippon Television network. There are rumors about a second season but sadly just rumors of sad fangirls, like myself.
There was also a live-action TV series of Ouran began airing in Japan on TBS on July 22, 2011. The live-action adaption features Yusuke Yamamoto as Tamaki Suou and Haruna Kawaguchi as Haruhi Fujioka. Not bad but I think that some of the silliness of the anime was lost in the live-action series.
So come down to West Regional Library and kiss kiss fall in love with Ouran High School Host Club!
