Favorite pairing: I, tall dark and brooding, put up with your shenanigans cause I know you’re not actually an asshole and I am also secretly not an asshole, and you’re just an antisocial little cuddle machine, and I, too, am a larger antisocial cuddle machine
I finished reading the manga to Ouran High School Host Club and I’m full of feels. I never was the biggest shōjo fan but goodness I loved this manga from beginning to end. It was so funny. I watched the anime first and was unsatisfied with the lack of season 2 and read the manga from start to finish - it is much better.
The characters are explained better. The panels are well organized. Their personalities just flew off the page. So great. Usually you have a few characters you like and a few you dislike but I can’t single out any of these characters as superior to the others or vice versa. They’re all so kawaii in their own way. It really was just such a cute story and it made me sad that it had to end. However the writer brilliantly allows you to imagine what the future will be like for these characters - as presented in the omake. So, it doesn’t actually feel like it’s over.
Haruhi: …huh. I didn’t realize it before, but I don’t think I’ve ever been to senpai’s house.
Tamaki: Ah! Haruhi, you’re the first one here, come in! I hope it didn’t take too long to get here via public transportation! I hear commoners have a terrible time with traffic!
Haruhi: … Tamaki-senpai, you sent a chauffeur. Of course I had an easy time getting here.
Tamaki: Oh right! hahaha, guess I forgot! That’s it. She thinks her Daddy is an idiot! What now! I musn’t look like a fool in front of my baby girl if she’s ever going to have a good time tonight! Brave face, Suoh! Talk about something you both enjoy!
Tamaki:This is not going well…
Tamaki: Thank goodness! Hello, you’ve reached the ultra-attractive Tamaki Suoh! How can I charm you today?
Honey: Oh. Sorry. Tama-chan, dad says we have to go over to America now to train the Navy Seals…but I wanted Christmas cake…so save me a piece, okay???
Tamaki: Ah, of course, Honey-senpai.
*hangs up and looks at Haruhi, who is texting someone*
Tamaki: It looks like Honey and Mori senpai aren’t coming.
Haruhi: Oh? I just got a text from Hikaru, apparently he and Kaoru got dragged into modeling at their mom’s gala…so they won’t be here either. I guess it’ll just be me, you, and Kyoya-senpai then?
Tamaki: *fidgeting nervously*About that…Kyoya told me earlier he wouldn’t be able to make it, as he is assisting his father in closing a fairly important deal tonight. So then…that makes it just us…
Haruhi! Will you show me how the commoners spend their Christmas Eve?!?
Haruhi: Uh… sure, but I don’t think…
Tamaki: OH BOY I AM SO EXCITED THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!!!!!
Haruhi: PUT ME DOWN SENPAI!!!!! *deep breath* Thank you! Now I can’t speak for all commoners, but my dad and I always enjoyed taking a spin around the local ice skating rink.
Tamaki: Let’s go!!!!! Ooh, I also want some commoner’s hot chocolate! I hear it’s instant!
Haruhi: *shaking her head* Of course, senapi, let’s go before it gets too crowded.
*Tamaki walks Haruhi home*
Haruhi: Thank you, senpai, I really had a good time toni-what’s wrong?
Tamaki: N-nothing, just um…what is that above your door?
*they look up to see someone has placed a sprig of mistletoe in the doorway*
Haruhi: Huh… I wonder who did that. Anyway, it’s just a small kiss. I guess it won’t hurt. *gives Tamaki a peck on the cheek* Goodnight senpai, and Merry Christmas!
Kyoya:*incoming text message* “So Kyo-chan, how’d the plan go? - Honey” *response* I’d say that sprig of mistletoe Mori-senpai placed was the perfect touch. Well done, men. Make sure the twins are left in the dark. We can’t have dissension in our ranks. *smirk*
