Ouran High School Host Club volume 5


Today's post is on Ouran High School Host Club volume 5 by Bisco Hatori. The cover has Haruhi and Tamaki on it both in white. It is 176 pages long and is published by Shojo Beat. As it is the fifth in the long series you need to have read the first four to understand the story. The intended reader likes over-the-top humor, light romance, and good writing. There is no sex, no language, and no violence in this book. The story is told from Haruhi's perspective. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- Haruhi's top ranking falls and she is in jeopardy of losing her scholarship at Ouran. Each member of the Host Club scrambles to become her tutor, but Haruhi picks a female student, Ayame, to help her. Haruhi's time is now spent with Ayame, who can't stand Tamaki. Can Tamaki charm his way into Ayame's good graces so the Host Club can spend time with their favorite member?

Review- The blurb is the first story. The rest of the book is about their summer break. The boys follow Haruhi and all the over-the-top comedy ensues. But the twins are the ones that the story really focus' on. The trouble that is caused does bring out the best in the twins but Tamaki gives up something important about Huruhi. Normally I dislike heroes in romance because they are not really nice but Tamaki is. He is very nice and really kind to everyone. In fact that is what got him in trouble in the first story in this volume. He was being himself before anyone knew what he was like. So he was Tamaki to Ayame and she thought it meant more than it did. So she thinks that he is very shallow but they work it out. Tamaki apologizes and then Ayame goes about trying to him better. Poor Tamaki will get himself into trouble no matter what he tries.

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