A show so overrated that I think you're all crazy.
Host Club' was entertaining at times, and uninteresting the rest of the time. I disliked this show very much. Maybe it was the 'fake-incestuous' twins, or the relationship between a 'toddler-like-boy' and a senior... something just didn't sit right with me. This show seems like it's marketed towards primary school kids. It's full of stupid stories and over-the-top characters. Popular opinion says that this is a great show, but I think it's at the bottom of the barrel in comparison to other Yaoi and Shoujo anime series.
It's about a girl named Haruhi (Maaya Sakamoto), who accidentally walks into a room full of handsome high school boys. They are the 'Host Club,' a group of boys who are in the business of escorting girls who want to be wooed and thrilled by their charm. The group is composed of: a very feminine leader, a boring manager, fake-incestuous twins, and another boring person (with his toddler-like companion named Honey). Basically, Haruhi becomes friends with them and you see all kinds of mischief they get up to.
First of all, there aren't any likable characters... not one. You never hear their thoughts (unless they're joking), which makes it impossible to connect to the characters. The thing is, none of the characters have a particularly interesting story. They're all either over-the-top and annoying, or too quiet.
The character that looked and acted like a toddler bothered me the most about this series. There is a romance story with this character that is just plain weird. This is a toddler for all intents and purposes! He's there to look cute and represent a 3 to 6 year old boy. Even though he is '17' in the show, does that make his romance any less disturbing? Honey-Senpai is literally the most annoying anime character I've ever come across. He's not cute, and the sound of his voice makes me cringe. I dreaded having to watch an episode that focused on him.
The incestuous brotherly love characters also made me feel a bit uncomfortable. It is as if someone made a fan-fiction of The Weasley Twins (Fred and George) from Harry Potter, with them being a couple. It's like there's no such thing as a 'Taboo' in Japan. Crossing the line... what line? Nothing is off limits for their animes. Minitokyo.Ouran.High.School.Host.Club.298202 After seeing top quality anime recently, Host Club was above all, unimpressive. There was nothing new or exciting. If there was a hint of originality or heart put into the story-lines and characters then perhaps the show would have won me over. For now, it's just another forgettable show.
P.s. I rated this show 1 Star, because its rating is way too high on this site. Personally, I would give it about 3 Stars out of 10.
