Manga Monday- Review of Oruan High School Host Club Volume 1

Manga Monday- Review of Oruan High School Host Club Volume 1

1087204

This Friday Film does not have a manga so on these Manga Monday’s I will give a review of a manga instead. This week I will be review Oruan High School Host Club Volume 1.

Today’s post is on Ouran High School Host Club volume 1 by Bisco Hatori. It is 168 pages long and is published by Shojo Beat Manga. The cover has two of the main characters on it looking cool. The intended reader is someone who likes extreme humor, light romance, and interesting characters. There is no sex, no language, and no violence in this volume. The story is told from the third person of Haruhi the main character. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- In this screwball romantic comedy, a poor girl at a rich kids’ school ends up working for the school’s swankiest club- and gets mistaken for a boy!
One day, Haruhi, a scholarship student at exclusive Ouran High School, breaks an $80,000 vase that belongs to the “Host Club,” a mysterious campus consisting of six super-rich (and gorgeous) guys. To pay back to damages, she is forced to work for the club, and it’s there that she discovers just how wealthy the members are and how different the rich are from everyone else…

Review- This is one of the funniest, best written, and all around best mangas that I have ever read. The character’s have real depth, the plot is very light and funny, but it is so funny. Haruhi has one of the driest sense of humor that I have ever read. She is just the best. Tamaki is wonderful. He is one of my favorite hero’s of all time. Hatori takes all the shojo and romance tropes and she lampshades them. That said it is a romance comedy manga. When Tamaki ‘discovers’ that Haruhi is a girl is one of the funniest moments that I have ever read, period.  The first volume is all about setting up the plot and getting to know Haruhi and some about Tamaki. So expect lots of character development in later volumes.

I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.

Film Friday- Ouran High School Host Club

Film Friday- Ouran High School Host Club

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!
