A word to best describe the anime’s run would be: Heartbreaking. As far as humor, tact, drama, character development, charm and wit go, few can do it better than Ouran. However, the anime’s resolution was nothing short of a cop-out save for a few graceful moments.
It is sad to see an anime with such potential, with such great characters depicted throughout be given the treatment at the end. However, if one thing can be certain, Ouran’s appeal can be seen by anyone: otaku or newcomer, sub watcher or dub watcher, Shoujo enthusiast or Shoujo non-fan.
Ouran High School Host Club is an incredibly fun show that will hook you from start to finish. It's a very funny show that will be even funnier depending on how much shoujo anime or manga you have watched. It's filled with in-jokes, slapstick humor, romantic elements, and even a little drama. It also doesn't rely on running jokes as much as some anime comedies.
Although it's geared towards girls, guys will get a kick out of this series too if they get past the pretty boys and bright colors. A solid English dub also means that those who hate to "read" their anime won't lose out.
This is a show worth your time and the 13-episode boxsets are a good deal. This hilarious show that has more depth than it seems desrves a 9 for presentation.
Ouran High School Host club has a better flow than most of the series that are its size.
All throughout it is entertaining, funny, and you can't get bored of it. The character stories don't veer off from the ongoing plot, and it blends well into the series instead of sticking out and gathering more than necessary attention. Somehow, the seemingly pointless plot of Ouran turns into a great anime series with a surprising amount of in-depth relationships that are not romantic. The characters are able to maintain their personalities even with plot twists and dramatic incidents - and also throughout their changing relationships.
The change of course from the manga at times was good, and much better than most of the fillers that any other anime demonstrated.
Overall, i really enjoyed this anime. It makes me go "Kyaaaa!!! Senior Honey is sooo cute" and makes me go, "Kyahahahhaha!!!!" whenever Tamaki makes his antiques. The first episode already caused me to crack up. There was a point where Tamaki hugs Haruhi and says, "Good, Good, Very Good". And then Haruhi will call Mori for help. At that point Tamaki was like, "Hanasanai yo, hanasanai, hanasana....hanasa..aaaah...." That is the point Mori caught Haruhi and pulled her from Tamaki's hug.
Both the manga and the anime is equally good in humour which is really rare. Some animes, the jokes in the manga is funnier than the anime but Ouran is not like that. I wouldn NEVER give this anime a MISS cos it is really good. I do read the manga and i will also recommend it to you.
