Ouran High School Host Club volume 2


Today's post is on Ouran High School Host Club volume 2 by Bisco Hatori. It is the second in her Host Club series and you need to have read the first in order to understand the story. It is 192 pages long and is published by Shojo Beat Manga. The cover has Tamaki and Kyoya on it looking cool. The intended reader is someone who likes shojo manga, romance comedy, and good writing. There is no sex, no language, and no violence in this volume. The story is told from the third person close of the main character Haruhi. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- The school-wide physical exam has thrown the members of the Host Club for a loop. How can the doctor not discover that Haruhi is a girl? And once the female customers learn the truth, Haruhi can kiss her job goodbye. But then life at the club will be unbearably boring if she leaves! So the guys wrack their brains for a solution...

Review- We get lots of character development in this volume. We see the twins at their best (or worse...), Haruhi gets to spend time with Mori and have an adventure. Poor Tamaki is still trying too hard to be someone other than himself with her because he gets embarrassed. Many laugh out loud moments in this volume. The plot is starting to really be build. The friendships between the characters are being revealed.On her adventure with Mori, we get a better understanding about the relationship between him and Honey.  Mori is one of my favorite characters in this series, he is really funny in his own quiet way. Kyoya does annoy Haruhi which is always funny. Kyoya's family is thinking about expanding into a new market and he uses his friends to test it out. Comedy ensues.

I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this volume with my own money.
