Ouran High School Host Club volume 6


Today's post is on Ouran High School Host Club volume 6 by Bisco Hatori. It is 208 pages long and is published by Shojo Beat. The cover has Haruhi and Kyoya on it. As it is the sixth in the long running series you need to have read the first five to understand the story. There is no sex, no language, and no violence in this book. The intended reader likes shojo romance, over-the-top comedy, and good characters. The story is told from Haruhi's  perspective. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- The school festival opens at Ouran, and the Host Club members are busy entertaining the visiting parents. Teasing his son is a favorite pastime of Tamaki's doting father, the school chairman, but Tamaki's grandmother is cut from a a very different cloth She despises and shuns Tamaki, banning him from the main Souh Mansion. It's now time for Kyoya to take action with the Host Club to helptheir favored leader out.

Review- The school festival is something that Japanese schools do for fun and of course it is over the top at Ouran. Kyoya is not just trying to help Tamaki but to continue moving forward to his goal of running the family business. As he is the youngest son, he is not really in line to do that, but it is what he wants to do and Kyoya is very ambitious. Haruhi learns that Tamaki is a bastard. When his father, who was married but childless, met Tamaki's mother they had an affair. Tamaki is his father's only child and heir but his grandmother does like that. She buys him from his mother then still treats him badly. So Kyoya and the Host Club want to protect Tamaki and Haruhi gets pulled into that too. Even with some serious moments, this is still a comedy manga.

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.
