Meet the Author

Bisco Hatori made her manga debut with Isshun kan no Romance (A Moment of Romance) in LaLa DX magazine. The comedy Ouran High School Host Club is her breakout hit. When she's stuck thinking up characters' names, she gets inspired by loud, upbeat music (her radio is set to NACK5 FM). She enjoys reading all kinds of manga, but she's especially fond of the sci-fi drama Please Save My Earth and Slam Dunk, a basketball classic.

    Best Manga Ever!

    I watched the anime before I ever read the series, and fell in love with it instantly. The characters are so funny, and just the plot by itself makes it great.
    I recomend this to everyone! It really is the greatest thing in the world. xD

    Good for dudes too!

    This manga looks like a total chick thing, but I found it quite humorous. At first, when I saw all of the pretty boys and average art, I was going to stop reading after the first volume. And even after I read it, I was going to quit. But for some reason I checked out the second volume at the library. Frankly, it wowed me. The characters became deeper, the art improved as the series went on, until I had read the first 10 volumes already. With the new one out, and also the just as good anime, any manga fan should jump on the Ouran bandwagon. Don't think...just read.

    ONE OF THE GREASTEST MANGA SERIES EVER!

    I've seen the anime and read the manga and I truely love this story. It is amazingly brilliant, unqiue story line, the characters are so lovable, you just can't help but love this manga. This manga series is the perfect example of why shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Ouran High School Host Club is SO HILARIOUS! you laugh every moment! I recommend this book to manga readers of all genres, it awsome! No words to describe how great this series is. I truely love it. I lok foward to reading and enjoying the rest of the series. Bisco Hatori has clearing made a HUGE HIT. Its so awesome. Everyone should read this.

    One of the best series ever!

    Okay so don't be turned off by the "Host Club" aspect of this. It is not one of those creepy host clubs. I mean this host club's "king" is a totally innocent guy that is too stupid to figure out that he is in love with a girl. He thinks he is acting like her "father", and that is where his love comes from. Really cute! it has everything; comedy, romance, twincest(okay not the best thing to be pointing out when I'm trying to get you to read this.) Just read it please, you won't regret it! (Oh, and did I mention all the guys are incredibly cute?)

    AMAZING-LY WRITTEN

    OMG! This series is awsome the fact that there is so much of a variety of characters is cool. Tama-chan is the 'king' Hunny is the cutie-senior Mori is the quiet The homo-twins and the unreadable Kyoya. He unreadable because he has so many qualities that are so different. I suggest reading the manga and watching the anime.You'll se what I mean!!! *kawaii*

    I love it, and I can't even say why.

    The comedy is pretty basic, slapstick stuff and I'm not usually into comedy at all anyway. I'm way too serious for my own good. But this series just pokes fun at everyone and it literally made me laugh. Out loud. No lie. The characters are authentic and lovable and it's not just a distraction you pick up every once in a while; it actually has pretty strong plot.
    Even if comedy isn't your thing, I really think this would be worth your time.

    Good

    I liked the anime and of course wanted to read the manga. The first volume introduces Haruhi and the Host Club. And from there, hilarity ensues as Haruhi while posing as a boy to pay off a debt, sees what the Host members are like. Good start.

    Rough translation

    I love the Ouran Host Club anime, and I've read several volumes of the manga. I was excited to get the whole set on my Nook, but this translation is awkward. A lot of the phrases don't make any sense, and for some reason they've "de-Japanized" the manga. Part of Honey's charm is that he calls everyone "chan," but not in this translation. No senpais or chans to be found. It's been Americanized. This is a great series, but you can find much better (and more faithful) translations out there.

    This is my favorite manga ever!! :D

    I read this book after I had watched the anime, and it still had been very good! The plot is somewhat similiar to the story, but it is probably a bit different. The book is really good, in the fact that the book has funny scenes and it has really good spots to hold you in, and I loved the book when i just read the first couple of pages and instantly fell in love with it. I would recommend this book, even if you are a little bit interested in it. And that is what I would say! :D I hope people who haven't read it can at least be able to reach for the book and flip the pages.

    Even My Guy Friends Love Ouran

    Sure, it may be kinda freaky, but we still laugh our butts off at His Highness Tamaki. These characters are absolutely loveable and freakishly devious! Haruhi is a new type of Herion: The one who doesn't care. In Ouran there are plenty of fighting emotions: The Twins' attention sucking from another person, Tamaki's...well...Tamaki, Kyoya's unknown motives and feelings, Hunny's fluffy cuteness, and Mori's silent, loveable feel. Combine the compelling story and loveable characters with the crazy situations and outrageous humor and the art style and I believe Hatori Bisco has made a HUGE hit.

(Espeacially Tamaki-sama *squeee!* ^////^) can't wait to get the next vol.! P.s. I'm a teen and this is my first shojo!
