Ouran High School Host Club is a comedy and a romance at the same time, to some of you who think that most love stories are boring and not worth the effort to watch then you're wrong in this case, OHSHC's main plotline is the life of an averedge japanese girl Haruhu Fujoka who won a scholarship into Ouran High School where she felt left out and uncommon, but this she didn't really care about as she was only there to learn and study to become a lawyer like her deceased mother.
The plotline of OHSHC is laid out in a clever comedic fashion, mixing Tamaki's love for Haruhi with his stupidity of the events going on around him such as fights over haruhi with the Hitachiin twins Kaoru and Hikaru.
The Host Club has 7 members including Haruhi -
Tamaki Suoh: A carefree young man who cares only for the Happiness of his friends and loved ones, sometimes quick to answer and arrogant but is always shot down with the clever remarks of his close friend Kyoya Ootori.While flamboyant and narcissistic (Suō means "rightfully becoming king" or "to become a king"), he is dedicated to his duties as a host. He is the Prince type to "entertain" customers, plying them with upper class etiquette and shameless flattery. He is partial to classic piano music and plays exceedingly well, one of his favorites being Mozart's Sonata for Two Pianos in D major. He, like Honey, also has a stuffed animal: a teddy called Kuma-chan though it is not shown very often.The main comic relief character of the series, Tamaki can be viewed as outspoken and naïve for his age, especially since he only views himself as an obsessive father figure to Haruhi, when in reality he's in love with her. Mei (as well as Honey) points out his naivete when it comes to how he truly feels about Haruhi, and the rest of the club sees this too; this applies to his overall dense approach to his own feelings though he is very perceptive about other people's, which is mentioned by the twins but several other members of the Host Club as well. He often gets jealous of other boys who get close to her and admires her when she shows her natural abilities. Haruhi eventually realizes that she is in love with Tamaki, while Tamaki only realizes the depth of his true feelings further into the series.
Kyoya Ootori: Kyoya is best friends with Tamaki, despite their completely different demeanors. Tamaki tends to call him "Mommy", or "Mother", in reference to Tamaki calling himself "Daddy". Kyoya is secretive and intelligent, being able to calculate any benefits that would come out of the Host Club's misadventures. Kyouya is a very realistic and pragmatic teen who takes everything for granted and gets things in return. He is very hings especially when it comes in money or financial things. Despite having quite antagonistic traits, the Host Club wouldn't be as half as successful without Kyoya's uptight resourcefulness. Although he doesn't put on an act for the women, he is considered the "cool type." He lives with his father, an affluent zaibatsu owner specializing in hospital management, two brothers that he has to surpass to become his father's successor, and an older sister who deeply cares about him. Although he comes off as cold and uncaring, there have been instances in both the anime and the manga wherein he shows concern for others. One instance was when the Host Club went to the beach, and he pretended to be 'the bad guy' just so that he could show Haruhi how worried she made everyone. Another was when he helped an old lady who was about to pay a large amount of money for a fake item.
The Hitachiin Twins Hikaru and Kaoru: Both aged 16 at the beginning of the series are depicted as mischievous, devious, and otherwise childish young men who often toy with people around them, including their fellow classmate and Host Club member, Haruhi. As they get to know Haruhi better, they start to care for her deeply, especially since they discovered that Haruhi can tell them apart, something that no one has ever done before. When they were very young, a maid they were very fond of betrayed their family by trying to rob them. The twins made her play the "which one is Hikaru" game and promise that she wouldn't rob them. But she broke her promise and told them that no one would ever be able to tell them apart. Tamaki Suoh, however, in their last year of middle school, repeatedly followed them, tossing out random guesses as to who was Hikaru and who was Kaoru to get them to join the Host Club, citing his intuition and false reasons each time. Kaoru is more mature than Hikaru as he understands and handles situations better than the narrow-minded Hikaru. Finally they crumbled, and decided to just try out the Host Club, and thus took a step towards a wider world, also developing a deep bond with Tamaki (who, eventually, does learn how to truly tell them apart). For this reason, they were originally cynical to the world before joining the Host Club, believing that anyone who is not the other twin cannot possibly compare to their bond. Additionally, because their parents were often away, they developed a deep dependence on each other through loneliness, but seem to open up to others recently, thus their relationship with Haruhi is a large part of their life.The Hitachiin twins show many instances of "brotherly love" which gets girls to fall for them left and right. In the anime, at least, it is difficult to say whether or not this is genuine although unlikely since they, along with the rest of the Host Club, are adept at adapting their personalities to suit the tastes of the clients, and their "forbidden brotherly love" act is their main draw. As well as this, both twins are shown to have a romantic interest in Haruhi. Despite claims they are not homosexual.The twins are both considered the mischievous, tricky, "little devil" types to attract customers. However, they do have their differences. Kaoru is nicer, more mature, and considerate to the thoughts of others, while Hikaru is more childish and immature, although Hikaru is the older twin. Kaoru also chooses not to pursue his feelings for Haruhi, so that Hikaru can realize his own feelings first. The personality differences are only shown when they are separated, and there is a slight difference in the way they speak. There are several ways as to how to tell the twins apart, the most used being that Hikaru's hair parting is on the right and Kaoru's hair parting is on the left. They live with their mother, Yuzuha, a fashion designer, and their considerably meeker father, a computer software designer. Both have a crush on Haruhi, but in the end Kaoru realizes that his brother is more important to him, so he gives up on Haruhi.
Mitsukuni "Honey" Haninozuka: Honey is depicted as a very childish and cake-loving boy who is much older than his elementary school appearance would indicate. In the anime, there is a scene which shows the true strength and power Honey possesses and it is said that he has been told by Japan's Defense Minister not to show his full power for fear of other countries thinking Japan held a weapon of mass destruction, causing the other countries to fire missiles at Japan. Honey is often around his cousin, Mori, who is very close to him. Honey lives with his father, the owner of a famous dojo and his little brother, Yasuchika, with whom he is often at odds.Honey is very fond of eating sweets, and his room is full of stuffed animals. He always carries around a plush bunny named Usa-chan. He used to hide his true self (with much difficulty) by being a "real man" for some time, but after Tamaki convinced him that liking cute things wasn't bad, he soon realized that there was absolutely no need for him to hide. Then, together with Mori, he joined the host club, attracting customers with his shotacon cuteness. His nickname, Honey, could have come from his personal name Mitsukuni or as an abbreviation of his family name Haninozuka. He is referred to almost exclusively by this nickname, with Mori being the only one who calls him by his first name.
Mori is depicted as tall, quiet and somewhat intimidating, but he is very protective of Honey. It was seen in the anime and manga where Honey had a toothache. Mori blamed himself for not reminding Honey to brush his teeth. He then restricted Honey from eating candy until he had a filling for his cavity. Honey ended up judo-throwing Mori to the floor in a fit of anger, but they made up soon afterward. The Morinozuka family had protected and served the Haninozuka family for many generations. As the two families were joined by marriage two generations back, the families became related to each other, thus breaking the master-servant tradition. Nevertheless, Mori still faithfully protects Honey and is always by his side, attending to his wishes and watching out for him; his protective personality extends to his classmates and the host club members, resulting in his gaining a certain level of respect. Although as a host, he is considered the "wild" type, he normally doesn't try to woo girls. The girls like how he cares for Honey, and shyer customers are attracted to his tall physique and taciturn personality. In the manga, he has a more outgoing little brother, Satoshi Morinozuka, who does not appear in the anime. Mori's hobbies include kendo, of which he is the national champion. In the manga, it is revealed that he becomes uncharacteristically talkative and flirtatious when he is tired. Also in the later chapters, he raises a chick he names Piyo and also takes in a stray tanuki.
overall score: 10/10
