The main characters are Haruhi and Tamaki. Tamaki is funny, naive and attention seeking while Haruhi is blunt, cold and indifferent. She is dragged along by Tamaki and the extremely self-centred twins, Hikaru and Kaoru into various situations.
The story centers on how the relations change after Haruhi enters the host club. It shows the difficulties faced by rich children. The strength of the story is its comedy. Each and every character in the story is extremely funny and special. The art is just average and is a bit of a letdown as the story is wonderful. The lines used in the story are also hilarious. The interest of the rich kids in a commoner’s life adds to the entertainment. There is romance as well.
I love the manga (Ouran HighSchool Host Club) for its comedy and peculiar characters. I would definitely recommend this story for readers who love light and funny romance stories.
