Review by tiamatq
So I looked at my review of the first volume, which I'm shocked was all the way back in 2008... can that be right? I was kind of harsh. Having watched the anime, I have fallen in love with Ouran High School Host Club, so I decided I needed to go back and read the manga. And now I love it. Maybe it's being more aware of the different manga genres that they joke about. Or maybe I have an easier time following the story, now that I've seen it played out on TV. I don't know, but whatever it is, I adore it.Stories in this volume include the club trying to keep Haruhi's gender a secret during the school's physical exams (a favorite of mine!), the twins fighting, the club accepts a new member - Shiro - as Tamaki's apprentice, and the club vacations at the Ohtori Aqua Garden - with disastrous results. We learn a little about the twins' history and see a few touching moments mixed in with the chaos. Bisco Hatori's asides are funny and let you know you shouldn't take anything too seriously. If you want a fun, light read in manga, this is great!

I am loving this series because it is following so closely to the anime that I adored. I look forward to the next volume. I am glad that the series followed so closely to the original material. I also love that it took the artist awhile to become comfortable with the way that the twins should look in the series. It was interesting to see the progression because it shows that sometimes it takes awhile to get a character to where you want them in looks when it comes to comic books. It is interesting to see the concept expand.
