Journal of anime ramblings, fiction works and reflections
Greetings I bring you from my bedroom, where narcolepsy reigns supreme and is trying to drag me to sleep but I shan’t! Narcolepsy and the fact that I have a writer’s block of sorts at the moment are the issues I’m facing really. But moving on…
I have this post to make, and I want to get the anime challenge over and done with.
My favorite Shoujo anime is Ouran Highschool Host Club.
Summary: Fujioka Haruhi is a scholarship student to one of the most prestigious schools in Japan, and is basically a commoner in the midst of all the elites. She’s an introvert and wanting to find a silent room to study, found Music room #3. Music room #3 is where an independent male host club holds its meetings and usual periods of fan service to its female fanbase. Haruhi gets trapped into becoming apart of the club when she breaks a vase valuing 10,000,000 yen. They all thought she was a guy so basically, the anime is centered on her involvement with the club, their discovering she is a girl, the day to day activities of the club, and the occasional insights into the characters’ personal lives.
Honestly, it is one of the most hilarious anime I’ve ever watched. Every episode, I ended up on the floor dying with laughter, not to mention that I enjoyed both the subbed and dubbed versions. But for the jokes to really get me, I stuck to subbed. Each character had a nice amount of development, and the romance was really nice and not generic. Tamaki and his love for Haruhi; wanting her to enjoy all the nice delicacies that only the rich are privy to, was really sweet.
The twins! I loved the twins. Their episode was one of the most hilarious. None of the supporting characters were uselessly brought on screen, they each added their own sort of flair to the anime, making for a really nice and funny series. Especially Renge.
My favorite character will always be Honey-senpai. I became a bit of a loli-shota because of him.
Honey was just the sweetest, I’d only want to be serviced by his cuteness if the Host Club existed…with a bit of Mori on the side.
I can’t help my Yaoi love ><
Even though this anime was really saturated by humor, the serious tones of it still had impact and contrasted the usual humor I was used to. Tamaki’s back story was sad and it made his character very relatable, because it explained his ways and why he founded the club. Each character got their time really to reflect and relate their background, even the supporting characters – which I think was really great for character and plot development.
I actually used this anime to get some of my friends into the anime fandom. It was amazing how they were all hooked on the episodes and almost murdered me on the days I forgot to bring my laptop to school…
Well, that’s it for tonight. Goodnight o/
