My Thoughts


Review covers 90 chapters 

Okay, let’s start with a confession. I rarely do it, but here it is essential. The truth is I should have written the review back in Dec 2015 or at least Jan 2016. Why? I finally finished reading it around that time, plus I had Millennium Snow scheduled to go in February (it’s by the same author) however, this and that happened and I just didn’t get to it.

Another truth is that I started the manga only after finishing the anime. And truthfully it would have been better to end it where it ended in the anime. I just wasn’t feeling the same fun vibe from it. Reading it became something like an obligation rather than something that should have brought me happiness or at least laughter. If you are not accustomed to this story, let me introduce to you some main characters. Haruhi – a poor girl who goes a scholarship into a super elite school. But because of some incidents she is wearing boy’s uniform and after ending up in 8ml yen debt starts “working” at the school host club. Nope, you’ve heard it right. There’s a host club on the school grounds and it’s very popular due to its eccentric but charismatic members. The most fun character is surely Tamaki aka the club presidents. His mood swings as well as “fatherly love” towards Haruhi is too much fun to read about. Surely when he realizes that he’s in love with her, you just have to see his face.

There are many adventures, humour and glittering life of high school host club. Are you ready to get swept from your feet? Get to know the members of Ouran high school host club and have fun exploring the high school life with Haruhi and others. Enjoy it to your fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don’t miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!
