Well, that's the basic description. But "Ouran High School Host Club: Complete Series" is so much more than just a slapsticky reverse-harem anime -- it's a charming little comedy series that's constantly awash in costumes, geekery, over-the-top schemes, and an adorable budding romance. Even in its more serious moments, it's utterly charming.
Haruhi Fujioka has just started on her scholarship at the elite Ouran Academy, and is looking for a quiet place to study... when she stumbles across the Host Club. The six wealthy boys there entertain girls with flirtation and elaborate costumes and decorations. The members: melodramatic and not-too-bright Tamaki, mischievous Hitachin twins Kaoru and Hikaru, cool-headed genius Kyoya, childlike Honey, and his silent stoic cousin Mori.
But when Haruhi accidentally breaks an antique vase, she finds herself drafted into the Host Club to pay off the debt... and only THEN does Tamaki find out she's a girl. But she continues working at the Host Club, and encounters some pretty bizarre adventures as she tries to navigate the world of the uber-wealthy. And when they aren't entertaining girls, the Host Club tries to help people with their fragmented relationships and troubles.
But just being rich doesn't keep the Host Club members from having their own troubles -- and as she gets to know them, Haruhi learns that the happy-go-lucky Tamaki has a tragic past that threatens to ruin his future. Will the little band of friends be able to help their "boss"?Read more ›
So after remembering it, and wanting to watch it again, I searched up the box set and was expecting to face anything up to £50 for the complete series. And when I saw this, I was like, WHAT!! £10!!!!
Mega deal :) and the anime is 100% my favourite of all time. The order was delivered a day before it said it would, and I can't tell you be enough how super the anime is. It's the best.
This four disc set includes all twenty-four episodes of the very amusing 'Ouran High School Host Club'. A reverse harem comedy, 'Ouran' is probably one of the funniest anime that I have seen with a good mixture of slapstick and romantic comedy alongside some surprisingly well developed characters. In fact, it is probably the characters who make this series so great with all of them being very interesting people with their own quirks and it is the episodes that focus on developing these characters that are my favourites. Of the characters, the twins and Honey-sempai who I enjoy watching the most but all of the main characters (and a few of the one-off ones as well) are great. The anime is based on a manga and while I haven't read the source material, from what I have gathered there are quite a few differences between the two here and there.
The set includes both the original Japanese version as well as the English dub with the latter being reasonably good. All the English voices are perfect for their roles with Vic Mignogna as Tamaki, J. Michael Tatum as Kyouya and Monica Rial as Renge being my favourites. Both the opening and ending songs have been dubbed into English and while the opening is reasonably good, the ending is a little painful at some points (Justin Houston can't seem to hold some of the notes unfortunately).Read more ›
I was looking for another anime to watch as I'd just finished up samurai-x (the books, not the series but the T.V. series is awesome go watch it/read it) when I stumbled on this, I thought it was a bit girly but having read up on the premise of the show I thought what the hay, something light and fun.
I have watched, and seriously I'm head over heels for it. I'll be buying the books as soon as I have the funds because this was such a great show. it never strays to far from being fun and light. the charter development is nice and surprisingly interesting, like the Twin's. I was put off to begin with because of there 'act' but when I realised it was just an act I warmed up to them. I also love Honey, he's so sweet and adorable but the charter once you get to know him has a surprising depth to him. the whole Host Club is fun and lively and thou they have there up's and down's and cringe worthy moment's (there are quite a few) it's a surprisingly open and funny to watch. I like that gender issue's are to some point addressed but it's never taken too seriously, and not in a dismissive way, it's just not something to be too massively hung up on, thou there are shock's abound the show manages to keep it light and funny and thats what surprised me the most.
All in all I'd totally recommend it.
