    After reading volume 1: (1 star)I couldn't stand the art (having seen the anime first), and ended up selling my only volume off at a con bring and buy without even finishing it! Glad I went back to it though...After reading up to volume 3:(4 stars)I can imagine that most manga/anime fans will have probably seen or heard of the anime adaptation of Ouran before picking up the manga. Those wanting more of the same should be pretty happy with the man...

    I love Ouran, I really do. All the characters are just wonderful.I laughed a lot too. The Commoner's Coffee scene? I'm just going to quote it here for my own sake:Tamaki: Eh, what's this?Haruhi: Coffee. It was on your list.Tamaki: But ... Ground coffee? And a strange brand...Haruhi: Not ground - instant.Tamaki: Instant ... WHOA! The one you just POUR HOT WATER IN? How PROLETARIAN!Kyouya: Hmm... I've heard of it, but never SEEN it.Hitatchiin: So i...

    Overall Rating: ASynopsis: Created by Bisco Hatori, the series follows Haruhi Fujioka, a scholarship student at the prestigious Ouran High School. Haruhi is a girl, but she got gum put in her hair so she cut it short, and wears boys clothes. This wouldn't be terribly important, but one day she stumbles across the school's Host Club. The Host Club is basically a place for six idly rich pretty boys to be idly rich pretty boys, and idly rich pretty ...

    'Ouran High School Host Club' is one of those manga that I had previously avoided on the basis of its being too flamboyantly shojo--that is, intensely fascinated with lovely bishuonen and the charming sparkles that seem to swirl about them when they're at their most heart-meltingly beautiful. I lost interest in all that when I was, like, 14 after realizing that many shojo comics focused on bishounen seemed to take themselves too seriously. Then o...

    I did not particularly like this. I am sure part of it may be that I am not the right demographic for this; the book is part of the Shojo Beat series, which is meant for teen girls. But for me, the main issue is that this light school comedy is a bit difficult to read and follow. The panels are extremely cluttered with text for one. Two, the plot is light, and to be honest, not handled the best way. The premise is a girl on scholarship in a very ...

    Cute, quirky, funny, that's the Ouran High School Host Club for you! Personally, I thought the anime was better; the manga was kinda boring and the artwork wasn't the BEST. But still a good manga, and an awesome anime! Now that I've read through the whole manga, I can definitely tell you that it gets better. The artwork improves significantly, the story builds and the characters develop very well. It's a fantastic manga and remains to be one of m...

    How I love these guys
  • Amy
    Guess what guys???!!!! Guess what???? I was FINALLY persuaded into giving manga a go! I used to not even bother when my friends recommended me manga, I don't know why. Maybe because I looked at these types of books as abnormal, compared to regular books these days. Well, it turns out I've been missing out on a lot these last few years! (: At first I was really slow in understanding what was going on, especially since this was my first manga chapt...

    I saw the anime series which was very well done so decided to check out the manga. Volume 1 was pretty good so can't wait to check out the next volume in the future. It's about a girl named Haruhi Fujioaka who is mistaken for a guy at a host club and must repay her debt to them after breaking an expensive vase. I read this at http://www.mangareader.net/ouran-high... so def check it out if you'd like to read it.
  • Angel Erin
    I watched the show and loved it ( one season?! :'( not cool) so I had to buy the first in the manga series. I just laughed all throughout the book like I did with the show. Amazing satire. I really enjoyed it and I can't wait to get the next in the series. I also can't wait to see if Tamaki and Haruhi ever get together.
  • Bec
    I loved revisiting this - it was so fun and energetic, just as I remembered! I can't wait to get familiar with the characters and relationships again and finally see how this ends! Haruhi is the best. :)
  • Aimeekay
    OMG! This book is a laugh riot! The artwork is first rate, and I love the background detailing! I wasn't sure at first that I would like this one. I probably would have gotten a bigger laugh out of it if I hadn't known ahead of time that Haruhi was a girl. For the first part of the story I kept waiting for the other guys in the club to find out and it kinda made the story seem to drag out at that point for me. But after that point I really enjoye...
  • Georgia
    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!'Omg I'm FANGIRLING!' say most of the comments on the popular anime of THE OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB.I really enjoyed the anime on YouTube (those of you reading this that have not seen the anime should go check it out. Go!.....you're still here, aren't you?) I mean I REALLY enjoyed it!(and so began my little obsession) I couldn't resist giving it a go when I saw it on my local library's shelf. At first when I started it,...

    Some Like It Hot meets Twelfth Night meets high school? Haruhi has no intention of disguising her sex, she is simply looking for a quiet place to study, and the libraries are full as she stumbles into what she assumes to be an unused music room - and directly into the arms of the Ouran High School Host Club! This host club is comprised of six wealthy young men with too much time on their hands who cater to the female elements of the school in ord...
  • Penny
    Let me start out by saying that i will be writing one review for this manga. At first i had watched the anime that was adapted from this manga and i fell in love with the characters. It is a funny, cheesy kinda gender-bender romantic plot.Compared to the anime, the manga had far more details and other stories involved.Ok enough with the anime.As i mentioned before the plot is a comedy, cheesy romantic, gender-bender...Haruhi is a scholarship stud...

    Haruhi Fujioka is a fictional school located in Bunkyō, Tokyo. Because of the superlative cost of the school uniform, Haruhi resorts to wearing long slacks, polo shirts and vests. Combined with her large glasses and tousled short hair, Haruhi's look causes her to be confused for a boy.Looking for a quiet place to study, Haruhi stumbles upon the Third Music Room, the working place of the Ouran Host Club, a group of six extremely attractive male s...
  • Wendy White
    Ahahahahah!I was recommended this series due to my love of the bizarre, and a love of satire. Good call, unnamed friend. Good call.I laughed so hard reading this first book that tears _actually_ streamed down my face. This first book has done a great job at setting the tone for the series - a massive satire of glamour and glitz that plays the associated tropes straight most of the time - but to extremes.One defining moment for me is when the prot...
  • Alexa
    Honestly, I just love all the members of the Ouran High School Host Club so darn much! It probably helps that I've already watched the anime and formed attachments to them all. Even if I know exactly how the plot plays out, I don't even care because I love being around this gang.
  • isabelle
    I find it amazing that I read the last quarter of this when I was brushing my teeth.
  • mikayla
    *4.5 starsI've already binge watched this entire anime on Netflix oops
  • Emily Alvelais
    The first manga I read and also the first anime I watched.I absolutely enjoy it,I fall in love with all the characters, I was laughing so hard that make me cry.
  • Michelle. D.
    So this is a review for the overall series. Let me just sy that it was soooo amazing! It was funny, violent and romantic at times. It had everything a good manga needs!!So I knew from the beginning that Tamaki love Haruhi. His depression whenever someone touched her was so hilarious and cute! He would sit in a corner some where and just mourn in his sorrows. LOLI have to say that the twins were my favourite characters. They are so michievious and...
  • Molly
    "Welcome to the Host Club!" Ouran High School Club is a hilarious high school gender bender set at one of the oddest places I have seen in anime/manga in a long time. A Host Club is basically where (usually rich) girls go to have men fuss over and romance them. So needless to say, Haruhi, a poor girl who has just entered this school on a scholarship, has never even heard of such a thing. While looking for a quiet place to study, Haruhi opened the...

    I know, I know... years ago I told myself I would never give into the "cheap trend" that is manga. Yet here I am, and actually... I don't regret it.I let myself indulge in Ouran as the only anime I've ever watched all the way through, so I figured I may as well let myself indulge in the manga. Also, Amy read it and said it's good (and she says the ending is amazing, but do I really want to wade through all 18 books to get there?). Also, I basical...
  • Silver
    Very good series. First off, this is a parody of all the cliches in the realm of shoujo, so there of course, will be a lot of cliches (and cliches getting made fun of). Despite the overuse of dialogue, I think Ouran is without a doubt one of the best, funnest, and interesting shoujo series out there. Haruhi is a breath of fresh air (I would rate her as the best shoujo heroine I've come across and there have been a lot) with her sharp wit and hone...
  • Icy
    Actually, I've heard of this manga many times as it is really popular. But I haven't been interested in it until recently I read a Skip Beat Fan Fic which Mori appears in it (Yes I read a manga series because of a Skip Beat Fan Fic again xd --- Another manga I read for similar reason is 警視庁特犯課007XD)Though the plot is simple and predictable, this manga is really funny. I can't stop laughing all the time. Out of the host club members I...
