At Ouran High School, an academy where only the children of the rich and powerful attend, there exists a club consisting of the most elite of the student body: the legendary Host Club. Within the club's room, six beautiful, bored boys spend their time entertaining equally beautiful and bored girls.

Haruhi Fujioka, a poor scholarship student, has no interest in the Host Club—until she breaks a valuable vase in their clubroom. After being mistaken for a boy, Haruhi is forced by Kyouya Ootori to work for the Host Club to repay her debt. Tamaki Suou, the princely leader of the club, eagerly takes her under his wing to teach her the ways of the host.

Things, however, are never quite so simple with the Host Club around. Even the most mundane events can turn into huge spectacles with the likes of prankster twins Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin, stoic Takashi Morinozuka, and sweet Mitsukuni "Hunny" Haninozuka. The crazy adventures of the Host Club are just beginning, and Haruhi must learn how to survive in the glitzy world of the hosts.

I REALLY like this manga. Not only is the story developed incredibly well and naturally, but the characters grow alongside it, helping each other improve and become better people. The romance is an special highlight, being incredibly heartwarming, healthy and based on feelings of admiration and respect, which is fascinating for the time. Everything, from Tamaki's family to Haruhi's character arc is given a fantastic resolution, and I can't recommend reading this enough for those who liked the anime. EVERY character gets developed and given a strong conclusion, which is very nice.

yeah, this manga has one of the best couples of all time and ...

Masterpiece. Must-watch for all romance-comedy fans- it's a classic!

People who've seen the anime might think: Oh, this was perfect, I'm sure there's no need to read the manga too.
People who think this are mistaken. The anime is good but there are so many little things the anime forgets or makes different! We get to see much more about Tamaki in manga, because the anime never fully adapted the manga (I'm still waiting for season 2 ( T w T)/ ).

It's an easy and quick read, with a beautiful story. Please read this manga if you haven't!

P.S. My favorite quote: Because I'm a genius, I wasn't ...

I am not a fan of this manga. I bought the complete set because it had been recommended so much to me...and ended up selling it right after finishing.

So, what's the big deal? The characters were just not likable to me. Spoiled boys who lack morals hanging around a mediocre and lackluster girl. It just seemed to lack the depth I like in a good story. The characters needed more to them...something that could make them seem more like decent people.

Story - I'm being generous if I give it a 4/10. It was slow at times and didn't seem very grounded. There wasn't enough comedy ...
