For the religious among us who choose to believe lies, the so-called experts at Wikipedia think they have an article about Ouran High School Host Club.
Ouran1

Hatori in writing the story tries the bold experiment (for a romance manga) of giving no clue at all as to the main successful romantic couple in the story.

Bisco Hatori's Ouran Academy (ミー蘭カ桜アデ Attack of the Evil Roses ) is all things to all men, in drag or otherwise. Some go for prestige, some go for education, and some go for drama. It is documented, sans crack dealers and teen moms, in an anime much too short, as well as a manga far too long. And fanfics, dear god, the fanfics. The reason Suoh cries in a corner all the time.

Ouran High School Host Club combines with Neon Genesis Evangelion to create the rough equivalent of Revolutionary Girl Utena.

edit Dramatis personae

Rene Tamaki Richard de Grandtaine, or Tamaki Suoh, has a lot to learn about being a prince of a host club. He has an Incest fetish and thinks his future wife is his daughter. He is blond, blue eyed, and delicious. He founded the host club whilst in middle school with Kyoya.

The players, clockwise from far right. Mori, Hunny with Bun-bun, Haruhi with flower arrangement, the Hitachiins, Kyoya, and Tamaki.

Haruhi Fujioka was raised by her very fashionable father and does not care much about gender, preferring more the inside of a person. Eventually she is wed to Tamaki her other father. Renge Houshakouji is fascinated by Japanese culture and anime. She is French and obsesses over men she sees in video games. She is the real brains of the outfit and rules with a stern yet fair hand. She understands very well the conventions of middle-of-the-road, trite anime, manga, and graphic novels, and often demands "moar angst xD" and more behavior common to boy's love comics. She is creator Bisco Hatori's favorite character. Mitsukuni 'Hunny' Haninozuka resembles a younger Tamaki. Several experts allege not entirely indubitably that they are related. He likes cake, is addled by 'vitamins' to keep him short and is armed and dangerous.

Takashi 'Mori' Morinozuka is to Hunny as Sancho Panza is to Don Quixote. These two present a lighthearted and delightful spin on feudalism. His wish is to be the character in a best-selling novel not written by a childish Japanese woman.

Kyoya Otori thinks he runs the group. People think he and Renge make a great couple.

Featuring an unexpected ending and much talked-about fashion design.

The Rest are too numerous to name. Groupies, Feminist Team Rocket wannabes, rabid fangirls of the club. And dear god, all the OCs!

Shiro Takaoji is a grade-school kid who wants to be a host. He dresses in a school-uniform not unlike something out of Lemony Snicket and demands that Tamaki teach him all he knows about being a princely liar to women. He is put in a cage, eventually hooks up with the object of his young affections. He reappears in the "Haruhi in Wonderland!" episode as an annoying little kid in a mouse costume.

The Hitachiin Twins consist of Hikaru and Kaoru, arguably more interested in Haruhi as a toy for amusement and increase of their own prestige than anything else. The fetish they peddle is forbidden brotherly love, which turns Renge on. Fanfic writers prefer that these two marry Haruhi.

Nekozawa They endured.

edit The Plot of the Anime

Beginning with a tasteful pan shot of white birds, we follow the heroine walking downcast through what appears to be the first-class ballroom of the Titanic. She asks her mother in heaven how things are going, and we note her voice, not unlike that of a high-school-girl version of Winnie the Pooh. Commenting briefly on the laziness of the kids richer than herself, she turns the handle of the ornate carved door before her and is spellbound by a bright light enveloping handsome shadows and a flurry of flower petals. There are frequent illusions to The Picture of Dorian Gray and she breaks a vase and is coerced into working off her debt. And she turns out to be merely a butch female instead of gay, and Tamaki is immediately turned on, and, flushing, ruffles his feathered hair and faints as is his wont. After fifty plot twists and side-stories and oneshots, the anime ends without them absolutely getting together, a minor oversight as there was never any real doubt they would anyway.

edit The Plot of the Manga

Interestingly enough, there is not a full consensus on how the manga deigns to resolve the relationship of Tamaki and Haruhi. The main divergence is the class trip to Boston, in which Tamaki learns very much about himself and realizes he has merely been objectifying women all along. He realizes too that he is merely friends with Haruhi and decides to find himself, whilst Haruhi realizes that her dream career as a laywer for the ages is incongruent with being barefoot in the kitchen, and so in any case marriage and children, not necessarily in that order, is not quite for her [1] They end up living in sin.

edit Romantic Egoist

Also featured regularly at the end of volumes of the manga is "Romantic Egoist", an earlier endeavor by Hatori. The work features the trials and tribulations of one "Yurine", pictured. Hatori is notable for making considerably extensive gains by publishing earlier, less successful works along with the meat and potatoes of her profession.

Yurine

Yurine from Love Egoist. Substance abuse has frequently been addressed in both Ouran and Love Egoist.

edit Egoistic Club

Bisco Hatori rose first to prominence on early incarnations of deviantART and began to devote her light and life to manga. Her life's masterwork is Ouran High School Host Club. She constantly talks about how she has to rush to make deadlines, which considering the quality of her art is obvious. Also present in her end-of-volume rantings[2], not unlike those of an Old-Testament prophet trapped in a teen girl's body, are innumerable drawings of alternate designs of her characters which did not come to fruition. She is also noted for her seminal work Millennium Snow, the rollicking (and better) inspiration for Twilight. Her Romance of One Moment and her Detarame Mosoryoku Opera are both shite.

edit The Theme Tune

The theme tune of the anime is Sakura Kiss by Chieko Kawabe. It is remarkable that such an inane pop song has been matched with such a mature anime featuring only equal and platonic relationships. The music video is so-so; stupid nonsense such as dressing in plush bunnysuits and frogsuits, but the Chieko herself is a nice piece of ass and plays a good Gibson guitar.

edit Fact and Fiction

The notion of a host club or hosuto kurabu is widespread throughout the Orient. It consists of a group of men or women, well-trained and well-versed in polite conversation and etiquette, and the artful mixing of drinks, who are paid to entertain women or men. Even gentle gratification is not implausible, though rare in such quarters.

Critics have noted that the character Tamaki Suoh is part of a grand tradition, one that includes Don Quixote and Leopold Bloom, of protagonists proceeding whilst having absolutely no idea what they are talking about. It is by such ignorance that he fuels much of the premise, so that Ouran would allow a host club on school grounds in the first place.

edit The Art of Original Characters

Possibly to improve upon various perceived errors in Hatori's composition of the dramatis personae and the relational dynamics thereof, possibly out of lameness, it is very popular among the fandom to create original characters. As it has often been alleged, however, that Haruhi is Mary-Sue-ish representation of Bisco Hatori, presumably the fanfic writers guilty of this perceived crime could do much worse, and retire with millions to boot.

edit Endnotes

  1. Actually the whole cast gets married to their significant others in the eighteenth and final volume and afterwards, stuck in the exact same relationships given them by or before about the tenth volume.
  2. "Rantings" may possibly be an oversimplification, one point put forward in the tenth volume's installment of Egoistic Club is the careful explanation how to differentiate between the two Hitachiin twins by means of side on which each twin's hair is parted. Hatori goes on to mention in that same installment that "THIS IS HOW HATORI REMEMBERS XD"
