From Del Rey:
Hana Suzuki loves only two things in life: eating and sleeping. So when her handsome classmate Izumi Oda talks her into joining the school hockey club, how is she going to survive getting up early, working hard, and playing well with others? True, the Grand Hockey Club is full of boys - super-cute boys at that - so maybe it won't be so bad after all…

True enough that this manga does have some OHSHC aura radiated from it, but to hell with it!! I love the art more than Ouran. And Hana is seriously one weird heroine~ It's just sooo funny watching her and Izumi! Read it, you'll love it for sure~
laugh till you die. this manga is so addicting.
this is one of the best mangas out there. why is it not famous? so underrated.
for those who compare it with ouran, heads up guys, GOKU STARTED FIRST accd to wiki. GOKU: year 2002 ouran: year 2003 so who copied who? well, it doesn't really matter. let's just enjoy both series. ^^,
somebody mentioned about the lack of romantic chemistry. i do get your point since this manga focused more on the comedy rather than the romance. so their chemistry may not be really visible for some people. i know, their nonstop bickering and elementary school antics are not the most romantic thing. and being unaware of their feelings towards each other doesn't help either. but for me though, i find the two main casts suited for each other. they have this weird connection. they just need a little more push from others to realize their feelings. good thing the romance gets better in the later volumes. XD
the humor in this manga is amazing. i can't help but laugh. the plot is so random and nonsensical that it boosts the comedy factor in this manga. another funny thing to note is that no matter how irrational some plot is, the other characters are still aware of reality. for example in one chapter, a bear became their goalie. the readers are convinced by the main cast that it is already an accepted circumstance in the manga. but when the ending came, reality strikes. a bear can never be a hockey player. LOL.
i've already read up to volume 9. but i just really want to ask, will they ever get to play a decent hockey game and win their first victory? XD
One of Ai Morinaga's best. The characters are refreshingly lovable in this cute high school comedy and the artwork is nice and clean. Nothing particularly deep in the plotline, but reading this manga makes me smile.
Similarity to Ouran
Gokuraku Seishun Hockey Club reminds me of Ouran High School Host Club. The characters (the twins, the smarty, etc.) and the situation she got herself into, in the beginning (like Haruhi broke the vase and was forced to work as a Host club member to pay it off). It's too similar [at the beginning] actually.
Zomgg never in my life have i laughed so much and for so long. Seriously, every page of this manga i'm like BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA and my lil brada next door will start shouting for me to shut up while i keep on laughing and i end up unconsciously having a screaming match with him
I LOVE THIS MANGA! its seriously sooo hilarious and there wasn't much romance but that there is a slow progress. i think everyone who want a good laugh in a shoujo should read this. promise.
I love it! One of her best I believe. The art had greatly improved and it is funny as always. Not much of romance here. All the girl think about is food and sleep. She even slept 64 hours straight! She is easily persuaded into doing something specially when food is mentioned

god...i laughed until i cried. morinaga ai DOES NOT GIVE A FFFF. she'll write whatever absurd thing and not care and it's too hilarious. i really don't care who hana ends up with, even though it's obvious. please more misunderstood weird BL scenes between random male characters. it's too amazing.
don't expect any sports or hockey to appear in this manga lmao. they play like, negative one game XD im done. please make more manga morinaga ai.
For real, Laugh Out Loud type of funny
I've re-read this manga for the 6th time now and still haven't got tired of it. Yes, there's not much plot on the majority of the chapters but the comedy and the lightheartedness of it totally captured me. The romance took A LONG TIME to build up and, truth be told, the focus on romance just started about several chapters away from the end of the manga. This story is more comedy than romance, but when it did get to the love part, it didn't feel weird nor out of place (unlike other mangas I've read where the romance felt awkward when the mangaka tried to integrate it to the storyline) . Morinaga Ai really did a great job on this one.
And compared to OHSHC? Both are good and everything, but I really prefer this over Ouran. How much do I love this manga over Ouran? Well, I've read GSHB six times, as I've previously mentioned, and only read Ouran once. You get the idea, no? 8D

the mangaka never fails to make such an epic comedy. this manga will give you the Ouran dejavu maybe because of the twins and the reverse harem genre, but certainly this manga is vastly different especially the laugh factor. A great read surely.
Funny depending on your type of humor
If you are the type to go for Jane Austen's sarcastic and subtle humor, this manga may be a no no for you. However, if you also happen to enjoy random situations caused by hilarious slap-stick misunderstandings, this manga may be down your alley after all.
For one thing, I loved how there are lots of BL situations that are total misunderstandings---it gets pretty amusing. The girl's personality is a gag in itself: She sleeps and she eats. Rinse and repeat.
