Today's post is on Ouran High School Host Club volume 17 by Bisco Hatori. It is 192 pages long and is published by Shojo Beat. The cover has Tamaki on it looking sweet. As it is the seventeenth in the long running series you need to have read the first sixteen to understand the story. The intended reader is someone who likes over-the-top humor, good characters, and long plots. There is no language, no sex, and no violence in this series. The is mostly told from Haruhi's perspective. There Be Spoilers Ahead.
From the back of the book- Tamaki's father and grandmother, the heads of the powerful Souh Corp., are behind the Host Club's suspension and the plan for Haruhi to be shipped off abroad. Now the Host Club members must pull out all the stops to save their beloved leader from his family's infighting.
Review- Lots happen in this volume to start ending the series. Tamaki and his grandmother at last reach a place of peace and maybe even love. Tamaki gets to see his mother again. Kyoya yells at people, which was fun. And Haruhi confesses to Tamaki in the last panel. Good times all around. I feel that Tamaki's family problems have been handled very well and that he got some good character time and growth. I was very glad that Kyoya yelled at Tamaki's father because he was not a good father in this volume. In addition we get to know what Kyoya plans to do with his future and how he is going to become the head of the Ohtori family. Poor Haruhi has some anxious feelings about telling Tamaki how she feels about him and it a very funny and welcome plot moment. Only one more volume left.
I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
