Ouran High School Host Club

Alt title: Ouran Koukou Host-bu



Overview:

Description:


Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...



Authors thoughts:



I have to say my first time watching this anime I really enjoyed it a lot. It was funny, beautiful, different, interesting, and emotional. It talked about some heavy topics and one scene made me so emotional I actually cried.
