In this screwball romantic comedy, Haruhi, a poor girl at a rich kids' school, is forced to repay an $80,000 debt by working for the school's swankiest, all-male club--as a boy! There, she discovers just how wealthy the six members are and how different the rich are from everybody else...
Includes 4 chapters of the story "Romantic Egoist" in various volumes, starring a pair of twins who play matchmaker with their fellow students, teachers and the like.

I loved this manga. The chapters and the situations were so random and hilarious, at least the first 50 chapters. It then starts focussing on the romantic aspect, which I personally found very taxing. The mangaka spoonfeeds every bit of the characters' emotions to us. There was no subtlety in how it was played out(Like the reviewer before me said). I was completely bored when Tamaki went into his serious mode. But, his recovery marked the beginning of another series of laugh-out-loud sessions.
My favourite character is definitely Tamaki. He provides much of the comic relief, along with the twins,of course. His method of sulking by crouching suits his character perfectly.
The gorgeous art is an added bonus. I swooned every time the host club did a new cosplay. Give it a shot. You won't regret it.
I really loved this manga when it was first beginning, and focusing on the funny, dumb things that happened with the host club. Then it became ridiculously romancey and srs bzns, and now I feel a little jilted because that's not why I picked up this manga to read in the first place, and it's not doing a very good job leading me into it. I think things like that should be subtle.
I still had a very good time rereading the beginning though. I enjoyed that.
For the Comedy
I remember beginning this manga in middle school, it being one of my first series.
I recommend it for the comedic aspects, but I personally feel like Hatori is really lacking in the romance department.
It was a great pleasure to read this series. I was skeptical at first, thinking it weird for a girl to be in host club with a bunch of guys, but I grew to love this series after reading the first couple volumes. My favorite thing about the series is the development of the characters as they change their way of thinking or express their feelings more. And even though this is a kind of romantic series, it didn't feel that way too much because feelings weren't recognized until later in the story. Tamaki and the twins have got to be my favorite characters because of all the funny (and occasionally unnecessary) schemes they pull on the members of the host club and outsiders. But, I do love the other members of the Host Club, almost the same as I love Tamaki and the twins. I've also seen the anime and the voice acting is great and makes the characters even more likable. I wish I could read and watch more from this series!
twins are the best
this is the first longest manga series I read, I enjoy it other than it had lots of flitters. I'm a big fan of the twins, wish they were the main. They changed the biggest out of the whole series and wished that the after story showed more about them. I wish that Haruhi had some emotions, or being clumsy or at least strong or at least funny. She boring and her backstory is plain, she just there. Tama is a idoit and his story sad but he still annoying. Honey and Morri are the second greatest pair, who cute together.
Those who read this should read these: BxB Brothers, Full House Kiss, Gokuraku Seishun Hockey Club, Hana Yori Dango, Perfect Girl Evolution, Skip Beat
The best protagonist
This is a good series, but not because it is particularly clever or creative. What makes it good is the characterization, All of the characters are unique enough that it makes it interesting to read, however the real show stealer is Haruhi herself. It's like a peculiar case of contrast that the main protagonist is the least animated character whereas the secondary characters are all over the top, but it just seems to work. Honestly i could see the characters working in almost any setting, as all you need is to have one very uninspired and snarky, but loveable lead being forced to activity by her slightly insane cohabitants. And it would probably be just as enjoyable. The only thing that keeps it from really being a perfectly enjoyable read is the ending felt like it could have continued, but doesn't. Its a perfectly acceptable ending, but i guess leaving them wanting more is better than letting them feel tired and worn out with a story.
This brings back memories....
The very first manga I had ever read and this is the manga that gave me a deep rooted megane and reverse harem obsessions (oh Kyouya.......) of course i have read different mangas and i found this isn't the BEST read but its a good beginners manga. when the drawing started to change near the end it wasn't much too my liking but whatever! Personally I thought Tamaki was a complete idiot and sometimes i just wanted to turn myself into a character and straight up shoot him in the brain. Still ended up liking him because he was so kind. Since I didn't know much about manga i kept thinking Kyouya's and Tamaki's names were senpai....... I also didn't know about what the twins were selling but then i looked it up....... yeah had that to get used to.
But altogether good read (note* didnt say great), i would spend time on it. these had bishies EVERYWHERE and every single one of the i would sell my soul to have (of course Kyouya i would do more then just sell my soul for......) I ABSOLUTELY ADORED THE ANIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so i would reccomend to watch that also

Good Memories will come from this ^^
The most interesting parts, for me, where the one developing the characters, their own stories, their family background . And also the art is amazing: the clothes, the characters themselves, the surroundings, everything was so well done. Sometimes while seeing Tamaki´s face it seemed so real to me, so handsome and so charming.
Getting to know the mangaka´s point of view, about the human nature, the way they face problems, it is a great experience.
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!
