The Plot of Ouran Highschool Host Club
Aside from the characters, you are likely to be looking for an attention-grabbing plot to follow. Well, this show has one of the most unique plots, as it features a group of high school students running their own host clubs. As most of you know, host clubs are places where clients pay to be entertained by the hosts. In this case, female students pay just to have the hosts pay attention to them.
With the different personalities offered by the 7 main characters, you can expect the club to be popular with students of Ouran High School. Another interesting thing about this show is that it dispels clichéd romantic comedy tropes, with the main female protagonist averting any kind of romantic advances from male leads.
If you are expecting to have action-packed scenes, keep in mind that this is a shoujo anime.

As the series is set in an elite high school, with students as the main characters of a romantic comedy, you can expect this show to be somewhat light-hearted. In fact, many fans describe the show as a slice-of-life kind of anime. Combined with its comedic nature, you are in for an easy-to-watch show.
Perhaps one of the reasons why this series is so easy to watch is its refreshing take on elite students. It gives a solid background to the show’s lead characters, making them more rounded while keeping in touch with their elite upbringing. Moreover, the character development in this show is exceptional.
