Day 14: “Anime That Never Gets Old No Matter How Many Times You’ve Rewatched It”
I find myself re-watching anime that I’ve already finished more often than I watch newer episodes of anime. The first season of One Piece is always entertaining to watch and compare to the recent episodes. Also, InuYasha is a pretty good anime to reminisce about the past with, since it was the first anime that I watched. While those are all good options, there is one show in particular that I find myself re-watching every summer, which is Ouran High School Host Club.
Synopsis: Haruhi Fujioka is a bright scholarship candidate with no rank or title to speak of—a rare species at Ouran High School, an elite academy for students of high pedigree. When she opens the door to Music Room #3 hoping to find a quiet place to study, Haruhi unexpectedly stumbles upon the Host Club. Led by the princely Tamaki, the club—whose other members include the “Shadow King” Kyouya, the mischievous Hitachiin twins, and the childlike Haninozuka “Honey” and his strong protector Mori—is where handsome boys with too much time on their hands entertain the girls in the academy. In a frantic attempt to remove herself from the hosts, Haruhi ends up breaking a vase worth eight million yen and is forced into becoming the eccentric group’s general errand boy to repay her enormous debt. However, thanks to her convincingly masculine appearance, her naturally genial disposition toward girls, and fascinating commoner status, she is soon promoted to full-time male host and plunged headlong into a glitzy whirlwind of elaborate cosplays, rich food, and exciting shenanigans that only the immensely wealthy Ouran Host Club can pull off.
OHSHC is definitely a favorite of mine. The group of characters personalities’ are all different. You’ve got the clueless, the intelligent, the athletic and the flamboyant individuals all in one anime. Each character is so different, it would be hard not to find a favorite. The twins just so happen to my favorites. They make the show worth watching, in my opinion. I couldn’t possibly choose one over the other, mainly because I confuse them for one another.
Also, the anime is rather comical. Although I did not understand what the light bulbs were hinting towards until the second time I watched the anime, I love that little detail that was worked into it; it adds more humor. The group is surely entertaining to watch as they discover what it is like to be poor, thanks to Haruhi.
I definitely recommend watching this anime if you are looking for a comedy to binge watch.
