Review by mscongeniality
I found this volume disappointingly short. It felt padded out by the filler material rather than complemented by it, moreso than previous volumes. This series is capable of so much more than a retread, I'm hoping I see that potential again when volume 10 comes out.
Review by Jenson_AKA_DL
This volume starts off with the tale of how the Hitachiin twins met Tamaki and how he shanghaied them into participating in the Host Club (lots of tickling involved LOL) A young girl who looks like someone Tamaki cares deeply about appears and throws the Club President into host mode overdrive. An empathetic comment at the end of this chapter by Haruhi to Tamaki, along with his continuing confusion left over from dealing with the evil appearing and yet mostly harmless Bossa Nova's Haruhi obsession, causes him to take to his sick bed.I really loved the chapter where Tamaki is struggling with his desires towards Haruhi, he's a complete head case! I had always thought his "father" thing was a way of keeping distance, but apparently he really had deluded himself into thinking it's true. Of course, his feelings really aren't exactly fatherly towards her and it is causing him no end of angst. I also enjoyed Bunny's moments of insight on the plot (what a cutie!). I think volume 8 and 9 have been my faves so far of the series.

So good! The Ouran High School Host Club is back with more hilarious and thrilling adventures! The twins are my favorite characters, and in this volume we get one of their "origin" stories, about how Tamaki convinced them to join the Host Club.Plus, we get Tamaki-Haruhi growth! Admittedly, it's basically erased by Tamaki's stupidity, but still. It happened.This volume's only fault is that it felt a little short.
