Haruhi Fujioka is a studious girl who has recently enrolled at the prestigious Ouran Academy. One day, while looking for a quiet and peaceful place to study, she stumbles across a seemingly unused music room. Upon entering, Haruhi is welcomed by the members of the well-known Host Club: a club in which attractive boys amuse girls from across the entire school. However, when Tamaki Suou—the founder and president of the club—startles the bright scholarship student, she accidentally breaks an expensive vase.

With repayment looking difficult for Haruhi, the Host Club members come up with the perfect solution to the girl's problem: work for the club and ultimately become a Host herself! Mistaken for a boy by her peers, Haruhi has to entertain various female students while coping with her fellow Hosts' extravagant personalities.

I first watched Ouran when I was a full fledged middle school weeb, completely unaware that the characters were being played up for their tropes. Now that I have graduated high school I still enjoy this anime for not only the nostalgia it gives as a staple of the 2000s, but also for the emotional bond one will form with each of the characters. They may all be blissfully trope-y, but don't let that put you off; this anime is NOT a parody, it is a homage which builds the characters from the ground up.

Ouran is equal parts hilarious, sad, heartwarming and will have you ...

The demographic for this is so oddly specific. You either love it because you watched it during your weeb awakening in middle school , OR you ARE a middle schooler who is in their weeb awakening. The CHOKEHOLD this anime has had on the shoujo loving community for years now, is absolutely wild.

I remember watching this on repeat for three years of my life (12-15 y/o), but stashed it away so I could enjoy other new series. Now, watching it as an adult... girl.. it HURTS sometimes. It really does. The specific era this came out of; that mid-2000's internet where you watched the ...

Ouran Highschool Host Club is one of the most terrible anime I have ever seen. First off, the soundtrack is downright awful. We have upbeat, bland music playing at the most unfitting times. And also, this anime is just trying to shove the "emotions" down your throat. It's like the violin is trying to hunt you down and kill you. Every second of this anime is absolutely cringe-worthy. We have stereotypical characters there for the "love drop." We have the bland, composed guy, the money bags, twins with the characteristics of sandpaper, and some other useless side characters. Did I mention the one that's there ...
