Ouran High School Host Club volume 3


Today's post is on Ouran High School Host Club volume 3 by Bisco Hatori. It is 192 pages long and is published by Shojo Beat Manga. As it is the third in the long running series you need to have read the first two in order to understand the book. The cover has the Hitachiin twins on it. The intended reader is someone who likes over the top humor, light love stories, and manga. There is no sex, no language, and no violence in this book. The story is told from third person close perspective of Haruhi. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- It's summer break, and the Host Club crew head to the beach, dragging out reluctant heroine with them. When Haruhi stands up to some local bullies and gets tossed into the ocean, Tamaki, the Host Club King, rescues her. But afterward, he's so mad that he won't speak to her until she apologizes. Trouble is, Haruhi can't figure out what she should be sorry for!

Review- We get see into a very important part o Tamaki's character in this volume: namely that he does not think. When Haruhi gets tossed into the sea, he just dives after her.Tamaki does not think all the time. Sometimes he just reacts and it was a good thing too because Haruhi cannot swim. They have a fight and Tamaki swears that until she apologizes he will not speak to her. Humor ensues. In the end, of course, everything works out and Tamaki gets to learn something important about Haruhi. Kyoya gets to play an interesting role in this volume. Kyoya is, I think, a bit more honest than normal but Haruhi being herself does not understand that. Tamaki gets it better but then Tamaki knows Kyoya and Haruhi really does not. Good character development in this volume.

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