Title: Ouran High School Host Club Vol. 1-18
Author: Bisco Hatori
Goodreads Plot: 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 group consisting of six super-rich (and gorgeous) guys. To pay back the damages, she is forced to work for the club, and it’s there that she discovers just how wealthy the boys are and how different they are from everybody else.
My Thoughts: This is probably my favorite Manga series of all times. I think this is the second I have read the series in its entirety. The characters and character development in this series is AMAZING! You immediately fall in love with these vibrant, engaging, and super unique characters. Over the course of the series, Hatori makes you fall in love with the host club through flashbacks and Haruhi’s astute perception of who they really are. The plot is also absolutely bewitching. You can’t help but continue reading the adventures of the Host Club as they conquer high school and discover who they truly are. Of course, my favorite part is that everything is resolved at the end. No cliff hangers. If reading manga is not your deal, you could watch the anime version of it on Netflix. It deviates from the story slightly, but it’s still pretty true to the series.
My Rating: 10/10
