Ouran High School Host Club Vol. 7 by Bisco Hatori

Book Jacket

In this screwball romantic comedy, Haruhi, a poor girl at a rich kids' school, is forced to repay an $80,000 debt by working for the school's swankiest, all-male club--as a boy!  There she discovers just how wealthy the six members are and how different they are from everybody else...

Hunny's little brother, Chika, pays a visit to the Host Club--and immediately starts attacking Hunny, using all his martial-arts prowess against his older brother!  Chika seems to be the absolute opposite of his sweets-loving, Bun-Bun toting sibling, but why is he so angry with Hunny?  The Host Club is determined to find out the cause...


Since I am reading and reviewing all these mangas, I thought I might switch up my reviews by making them quotes-centric.  Then I realized that all the best quotes and scenes require the picture to fully express the hilarity.  Which makes sense, what with it being a manga and all.  *headdesk*

Sooo I don't know how to make these more interesting.  I will keep thinking about it.

First, an episode about Kyoya, in which is is both heartless like normal but also possibly thoughtful! 

And then twp episodes about Hunny and Mori's younger brothers, who are their exact opposites and are therefore hilarious.  Of course, Hunny is always hilarious.  His desperate attempt to be cool, and not compelled by a child-like obsession with sweets and cute things, made me lol through every picture.

Finally, an episode in which Haruhi is kidnapped by the girl's school and forced to perform in their school play.  If only life were more like these stories, I would NEVER BE BORED! 

And then a little snippet of the twin's past.  Their favorite nanny would have been a criminal who taught them all her secrets.  They make so much more sense now!

And what is with these extra not-Ouran stories at the end of each volume?  They are kind of weird, right?  Dramatic love stories between antagonistic teacher and student?  ....mmkay.

Three out of five midnight cakes.
