Trivia

Vic Mignogna and Caitlin Glass both spearheaded getting Ouran to the United States for dubbing, after they both saw it in Japanese. Mignogna specifically wanted to play Tamaki Suou after falling in love with the character. Maintaining professionalism Glass still auditioned others for the role along with Mignogna. Vic's audition landed him the role in the end. See more »

Absolutely Unmissable Anime
22 June 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is without a doubt the best anime I have seen so far. It's in the romance/comedy genre and is full of some of the funniest characters ever! Haruhi is a "commoner" scholarship student who enters elite Ouran High School, where lineage is second only to wealth, and becomes indebted to the Host Club, six male students who let the female students of Ouran enjoy their company. They each take the role of a certain "character" to entertain the girls; The prince, the loli-shota, the cool type, the silent type and the "brotherly-love" twins. Needless to say, hilarity ensues.

The plot is mainly light and fluffy, but touches on lesbianism, twincest and severely obnoxious people. Personally, I think it would be absolutely fine for anybody aged 12 or above, as none of these heavy themes are dealt with clearly. One can take what one wants from it.

I urge anyone who enjoys anime to watch this, as it will certainly raise more than a few laughs.
