i used to love this series ;(
i used to really love this series and even bought the first 12 volumes of the manga. then, i dunno, the shoujo romance started to blossom everywhere complete with all the bells and whistles of other typical shoujos and i just got bored with it. the other themes in the manga were handled brilliantly and to see the romance handled so...blah....i just dropped it to save myself some grief.
still love the characters to death and love the humor! i'll still remember this series fondly as a rom-com with great potential.
I agree, I didn't "read" the entire manga. I read the first few chapters and got familiar with the characters. Then I skimmed some of the "filler" chapters. I read the ones that introduced a good problem, drama(which I didn't think there was much of until later in the manga), or romantic development (which there also wasn't a lot of until toward the end).
Anywho, no need to know how I read this book, when I finished it I read the chapters I missed so it's all good. It was great for a first read, really enjoyed the plot and characters Very happy ending. I don't think I can read the whole manga again. Usually when I start missing Haruhi and the gang I read the first chapters up until they realize she's a girl, skip a few chapters to when Tamaki starts realizing he might have deeper feelings for Haruhi (and I mean really realizing, not just his strange fatherly love) and then to the last few chapters when they become a couple and confess.
But don't get me wrong, the other chapters are good but the manga is pretty long and I don't have enough time or attention-span to read all of them. However, when I have enough time i do like to go back and read some of my favorite adventures with them:]
On another note, for those that might become annoyed at her character, Haruhi is both cute and boyish, gentle and strong, naive and intelligent. She's a perfect heroine and Tamaki compliments her calm demeanor well. (Sorry to the Hikaru and Kouru fans, i love them but they didn't stand a chance against the King)
Good manga, give it a try. It's definitely one of those really popular mangas everyone should try once. You won't be disappointed!
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ouran High School Host Club is amazing. Okay, so I do admit that I got a bit bored by the time I reached volume 16 and didn't actually "read read" the rest of the manga but rather just skimmed it. However, this manga is amazing for a variety of reasons. First off, the characters have a lot more depth than the typical romantic comedy manga. Second, the manga was great not because of the romance, but rather because of the friendship between the host club members (yes I know it sounds cliche). I liked Tamaki and Haruhi together, but Haruhi kind of irked me towards the end of the manga. I actually found that out of all of the characters, Haruhi probably had the least depth in terms of development. She was the most uninteresting character and had the most bland back story. Rather than seeing her as down-to-earth, frank, and so-called wise, I just found her very bleh. She had no character, and she had no emotion. Well she does have emotion, but there was just something about her that felt so empty. I will commend the mangaka on not making Haruhi a stupid, whiny, weepy, clingy, obsessed with finding love in high school girl. The ending was good, but I'm sorry, I'm a huge HaruhiXHikaru fan, so seeing Hikaru being rejected made me really depressed. There was no doubt that she was going to end up with Tamaki from the beginning, but still, it's hard not to fall in love with Hikaru. Read this manga. It's worth it.
After watching the anime and picking up the manga fort the remainder of the chapters, I have to say I had the feeling the anime covered the fun volumes, and the remaining ones were much more dull. Therefore I recommend watching the anime or reading the first 9 volumes, the rest I recommend not so much if not for some closure.
I must admit, it got boring at some point, but you really must finish the whole series in order to love it entirely. I highly recommend it!
This is one shoujo manga that I actually enjoyed. Most of the time, I don't like drawn out love stories (and I almost NEVER enjoy romantic comedies). Even though I'm more drawn toward shounen, this story was not boring at all. The gender bending quality of the story also drew me in because I love the gender bend genre. ^_^
Anyways, I recommend this to anyone that is not entirely opposed to shoujo.
Good at first but then...
It just becomes insanely boring, especially towards the end. Walls of text and a cast I wasn't satisfied with, especially the cliched male lead. It was funny while it lasted and I enjoyed it while it was entertaining, but I'm afraid I still don't recommend it.
Probably my own issue
But I found this manga incredibly boring :/ I guess I must have warped tastes or something because the ratings on Ouran are very high. I couldn't marathon and I could barely read 3 chapters back-to-back because I literally just wanted to fall asleep. I also preferred the mangaka's art style from 1000 Years of Snow, but that's just a personal preference thing. Wasn't too fond of Tamaki, Honey, or the twins.
I admit this manga has its own merits which is why so many people love it; however, I had trouble reading this. I highly suggest it to anyone who is looking for a long series.
Amazing, and also set me on the path of additction
My friend forced me to watch 3 episodes of the dubbed anime version, and after 5 minutes of episode 1, I was hooked. I watched the rest of them until 6am the next day (no sleep obviously) and I started reading the manga and did not sleep until I finished the whole series. This manga, really, ruined my life. Now, due to manga, I barely read actual books because I have been hunting down mangas such as this hilarious rom-com. If I had to choose between sleeping and reading this manga, I would choose the manga. If you do not want addictions, do not read it. This is the funniest manga I have ever read, and in my top 2 mangas ever. It only is beaten by fruits basket.

The Epitome of Romantic Comedy
I have never in my life read a manga that captivated me and had me laughing from beginning till the end. It drew out feelings of deep friendship and love that is real; and a comedy that is and unsurpassed. I loved all the characters and how they are all the focus of the story.
