when i first saw OHSHC as a kid, i immediately fell in love with it. i'm not sure what it was, but i was intensely drawn to it. honey was my fav boy. i don't think they'd be able to recapture the magic with a second season, but i'd love to see them try. even if it bombs, we still have s1 to fall back on. you're cute AF btw

Fruits Basket has basically had a nostalgic re-do, so I would say it could work for OHHC too. edit: Fans of The Vision of Escaflowne have also crowdfunded a redub of the entire series and movie.

Yes but sometimes I wish she’d be less of a pushover. Sometimes she’s awesome and stands up to them but other times she just deals with their treatment of her and just makes angry faces without trying to speak up.

Ouran Highschool Host Club is one of those anime's that looks like it's going to be horrible at first glance, but once you watch it you realize just how amazing it really is. Something about the color palette, the characters, the humor, it all spoke to me and made me feel so seen. Every episode I loved, many made me tear up in the cute and meaningful moments sprinkled amongst the wacky humor. This show is one that will always have a place in my heart, and to this day when someone asks me "What's your all time favorite anime?" I proudly respond "Ouran Highschool Host Club" with zero shame.

Something I distinctly remember from the manga is that everyone in the school (or at least the females) knew that Haruhi was a female, but they just didn't care. It was a throwaway line in the last book, but it's so sweet to think about.

I just reread that, and it is actually that they thought Haruhi liked dressing as a woman and was dating Tamaki in secret because their love was "taboo". Haruhi's father drops she is his daughter, not son, when her and Tamaki go to America, and the fangirls were there. They expressed shock that Haruhi was a woman and not a man, and tell the other hosts about thinking Haruhi liked to crossdress and secretly was dating tamaki lol. There is a little box on that page that says "All this time they thought she was a girly (likely gay) boy." Still, it was cool that they accepted those factors (cross-dressing and two guys in love), and I am sure if we got to see the fangirls when they returned from studying abroad, they would have excepted Haruhi as herself.
VioletxPurple Hace un mes
I want to add a fun fact onto this: In the manga, Haruhi does fall in love with Tamaki but is despite all Tamaki's clinginess afraid of confessing to him. They have an actual nightmare once in which they confesses to him and he responds something along the lines of "I love myself too" 😂

@ᴹᵃʳˢʰᵃᶫ ᴸᵉᵉ ᵀʰᵉ ᴾᵘˢˢʸ ᴰᵉˢᵗʳᵒʸᵉʳ ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) also non-binary has always been a thing that exists whether it’s had a name or not. The experiences she describes is perfectly explained by non-binary, probably agender, regardless of whether she would have had those labels to identify with available at the time. I mean, most cis people absolutely care about what they’re called and what gender others see them as and will get very upset if you misgender them. She does not have a cis experience lmao

"Nostalgia marketing doesn't work with anime and manga" Excuse me??? Did we forget about the return of Fruits Basket, and how wildly popular that was?? Fruits Basket only had one season originally in like 2001, but was remade and put out in 2019 with great success! It was one of the most hyped animes of the season, and it finished the plot of the manga. If Host Club got the Fruits Basket treatment, I think it would be very popular.

True, especially with the boom of anime fans after the 2020 lockdown, I believe there's a chance (a small chance) that a OHSHC reboot would be a massive success. Naturally, though, there would be people worried about it though. OHSHC is iconic the way it is, people (myself included) would no doubt have worries about how a reboot would be treated, how aspects of it would evolve with the times, etc.

@Joseph Artsader wait what you said doesn't make sense. You said "Haruhi doesn't care to be called either a girl or a boy. That literally defeats the point of being non-binary." But what do you call someone who's both a girl and a boy then?
Bram Lastname
Bram Lastname Hace 25 días
I'd like to note that you don't need to feel this way about yourself, In fact you don't even need to be comfortable with all forms of gender expression. (I know I'm not, despite wanting to) The important part is to try to treat people with respect Even if it's a little uncomfortable. That being said aspirations are welcome And I know I'm still working on issues with my own self image and expression Despite being older than you. So don't take this as me saying you're doing something wrong Since you have to judge that for yourself.

another brilliant aspect of the show is that it isn't just a great shojo anime, its a CRITIQUE of shojo animes. It uses the customers and renge as a way to analyze shojo culture and then uses haruhi's realism to point out every single one of it's flaws AND THEN uses the boys in the host club to add counter points to show those elements often seen as flaws in a better light. It's truly genius

The thing that hooked me right away with Ouran that I've never had with any other anime is that Haruhi was instantly so relatable- mostly because she's basically written as the voice of the reader/viewer. All the things that you think to yourself while reading manga or watching anime are said in a delicious deadpan by Haruhi, and you get that instant satisfaction of seeing the characters looking shocked that anyone would be so brazen. To anyone who loves Ouran but hasn't read the manga, I HIGHLY recommend it. The first several chapters are word for word the same as the show, but then it shoots off into a much more satisfying, complex, and romantic series. And the weird rushed ending with Eclair or whatever her name was doesn't happen at all, which I appreciate because GOD she was annoying.

I feel so bad for Tamaki. People hate him and it is not his fault.... he says awful things yes, but never out of malice, but ignorance He is a good boy. A good himbo, and he deserves Haruhi It hurts how people treat him because of a few bad comments. He is not a bad love interest, he is not... AND THE MANGA IS SO MUCH BETTERa

We definitely needed more backstory for Mori. I’m aware his role of the show is “the guy with one line an episode,” but they gave us almost nothing about him. His entire backstory is “He and Hunny have linked families.” Theres absolutely nothing about his home life or anything that maybe encourage him to be as quiet as he is.

I found it actually brilliant that Tamaki's backstory wasn't revealed until the end of the show. A lot of times, as viewers and readers, we are privy to information that we aren't supposed to know, and our perception of the character is shaped it. How often do we see a character hated by others only to feel "no, don't hate them, they have a reason to act this way, you just don't know it!" So, in a way, we are used to feeling entitled to a character's past, or their secrets. The way Tamaki's past is revealed to us as viewers is, in my opinion, is very similar to how you would learn something about a friend in real-life. When you make a new friend, you don't know their past right away. You're not supposed to. You're not entitled to that information. You have to go off of the impressions and interactions you have in the moment, and it may take years for you to learn about a tragic event, or a life-changing experience your friends has gone through. And what you lean may change your perception, kind of the way it changes our perception of Tamaki when we learn more about him.
Emily Ramirez
Emily Ramirez Hace un mes
The crazy thing too, on a rewatch, theres very subtle things about his (everyone's) past left for the viewer to pick up. The biggest example that comes to mind is the Nekozawa/Kirimi episode, Haruhi makes a statement on how she never had siblings and that it must be tragic to have a strained relationship with someone you love. In the background, you see all the hosts kinda look at each other, knowing that they all have those familial problems themselves; then it cuts to Kyoya who looks straight at Tamaki. Its such a subtle scene but it has such a big impact if you know what you're looking for
Kait.543 Hace un mes
It also really lends itself to Kaoru's whole thing about the carriage... He assigns that so easily to Tamaki (because he knows Tamaki's past when we still don't) BUT it is really about how he feels about the host club himself... how everyone feels.

Just watching these clips made me realize Haruhi was quite literally the only "female" protag I genuinely liked as a kid.... seeing who I grew up to be and it makes so much sense I feel so attacked rn. Also I think nostalgia marketing works sometimes, for example Fruits Basket was so loved that they recently remade it to do right by the fans that begged. Black Butler gets an anime adaptation every few years. I won't be surprised if in a few years they announce a remake for this especially with queer culture being more accepted mainstream. My only concern is either they'll just completely remove the queer aspects of everyone or it'll be played into too much to the point it feels like pandering or just offensive.

I’m probably a bit late, but I’m still definitely a fan of ohshc. It gives you that nostalgic 2000’s anime feel (which it is) but it’s such an interesting concept that it immersed you into the series. After I finished watching the anime, I read the manga (yes it continues after the anime ends.) personally, I love all the characters, like they made the anime special, and the characters themselves made the series just kind of stand out (aside from the beautiful art style, not going to lie.) the representation for haruhi is really good, I love how the creator wrote haruhi without any silly stereotypes or anything, just wrote her/them/him as a good character, and honestly the representation for the non binary community is really good with the character writing. (I’m sorry I’m really bad at explaining things help me if I’m incorrect about anything.) my personal favorites of the show were probably tamaki and kyoya, they kind of just hit the spot with me. (I wish that scene with kyoya and haruhi never happened though. It wasn’t good at all. If yk yk…) those two characters are just my personal favorites, I love their personality and everything, I don’t really get to see something played out well in a lot of more recent animes that I watch or anything. Honestly ouran is definitely one of my favorites, it holds a special place in my heart. It would be nice for another creative concept to appear again, not to say there isn’t of course, but something that would really blow the audience away and stay iconic just like a lot of 2000’s-2010’s animes. Also if you want a manga spoiler (please don’t read if you want to rlly get into the manga.): if you ever really shipped tamaki and haruhi but never got to see them kiss or become something, well then I’ll bet you ten bucks they sure do. Surprisingly, haruhi is the first one to really acknowledge their feelings for tamaki (besides the fact that tamaki doesn’t even know he likes them.) there was also one panel where haruhi blushed from tamaki the first time, which was really cute, he kissed her on the forehead when they were both talking about tamakis mom or something, he did it on impulse but then apologized (I think? my memory is so bad.) though both haruhi and tamaki were blushing, well a lot to say lol. also yes, they kiss! like actually! but it’s more towards the end of the manga. also yeah they got married lol.

@WannabeHistorian692 late reply, as far as the manga goes, not really. However, haruhi did say she does not care if she was referred to as male or female, sorry for the late reply!
Was Haruhi ever confirmed as non-binary?
FerraticaTheBard Hace un mes
The manga was still ongoing when the anime came out, I believe, so Ouran's actually dealing with an FMA situation - the true ending of the manga hadn't happened yet, and the beginning of the series is heavily episodic compared to later sections, so they made up a non-canon ending that doesn't actually match up with what canon turned out to be. So they would need to either entirely reboot the series or keeping making up their own timeline if they wanted to do a second season.

I'm almost 60 and I love this show. I discovered it on Netflix a few years ago and enjoyed its humor but also how none of the characters are cardboard cut outs. Yes, they are stereotypes, but they do get fleshed out more than most shows. You are absolutely correct in that Tamaki has a huge heart. He's experienced pain but all that means is he doesn't want others to feel the way he did. It's a cute, fluffy, enjoyable show, that I'll rewatch when I'm feeling down because at its core its about love and hope.

Although it’s saturated with sexually mature content, it’s great that the focus is the good nature of the characters. The writing focuses on bringing the characters from unhealthy behaviors and mindsets to more stable ones.

I had no idea this show is trending again and thought this was going to be a video about why the anime has such a different ending than the manga. This was such an important anime/manga for me when I was in middle school and high school, so I'm pleased to hear that people are rediscovering it. I started reading the Ourah Host Club manga at the end of middle school. I followed the series until it concluded while I was in college, and of course watched the anime when it came out when I was in high school. If you don't read the manga, you might not pick up on how Hatori-sensei wrote OHC as a critique of harem manga/anime written for men (which heavily focused on female objectivity and the male gaze) and a satire of the saccharine tropes in shoujo manga that relied heavily on traditional gender roles. This is a shoujo manga that explored sexuality, kink and fetish, gender norms, and gender fluidity in a way that wouldn't be more mainstream for more than a decade. That was revolutionary at the time. In the anime, and maybe moreso in the English dub, it seems like homosexuality is thrown around a lot and it seems like gay culture is being played up for laughs, but the manga was a lot less direct, and by today's terms many of the main characters might be read differently in terms of their sexuality and gender: bisexual, ace, femme, non-binary, etc. But for me what was so amazing was everyone was accepted at the Host Club. No matter your kink, gender expression, or sexuality, no one is ridiculed and everyone has a place and a person who will spend time with them and adore them for who they are. Even the Takarazuka group is seen as a threat not because of their aggressive lesbianism (potentially threatening Tamaki's masculinity, which is a trope in a lot of media from this time and earlier), but because Tamaki is worried he will lose Haruhi if she transfers to join them. The love story between Tamaki and Haruhi is wrapped up well in the anime, but has a much more natural progression in the manga following the same kind of inner exploration a lot of people take in discovering their their sexuality and gender, while also trying to figure out themselved as a human and what they want to pursue in life. And remember: this came out in the early 2000s! It was such a different world, people. I couldn't believe that they would adapt the manga given how edgy it was, but it was a miracle that the manga, in very sexuality and gender-conservative Japan, was even made!! It's an important part of shoujo manga/anime history and culture - manga and anime history and culture full-stop - so I'm glad people are returning to it. For my own part, I mined the manga heavily for a lot of scholarly work I did in graduate school around explorations of sexuality and gender in "children's literature". I had a lot of fun talking about twincest and misgendering at very high brow conferences. (Edited to add some additional cultural context for circa 2006)

I actually DO think this series could benefit from a re-boot. I think it has a similar case to Fruits Basket, another really popular early 2000s shoujo anime that was recently revitalized to complete the story after the original anime stopped before it was over. And *that* re-boot was popular enough to get a prelude movie.
hectoriul Hace 29 días
they should not reboot it honestly it was truly problematic with haruhis situation, the twincest, the misogny, the transphobia etc. a lot of it was funny back then and i think it doesnt need a serious reboot since it was just a parody.

Absolutely agree. And the Ouran anime really turned up the cheese too... the manga was very much the same, dont get me wrong, but as far as I can remember (been about a decade since I revisited this) the manga also let the more serious moments breathe as well. It balanced the comedy and drama far more than the anime did, and I think a reboot slated for a full three or four cour series would fix that.
Kait.543 Hace un mes
@Beanuld Same! I would still probably watch, but I don't know if it could replace the old show for me. Even with Fruits Basket there's a lot of good in the new show, but a lot missing for me stylistically. And comedically.
Beanuld Hace un mes
I think if they reboot it, I'll do same as the fruits basket reboot and enjoy them at 2 different shows!! the OG anime adaptations of each stray from the mangas in favor of gimmicky comedy, which is really endearing! But that means when it comes to the plot, it lacks something, so everyone is left wanting another season! Focusing on the plot means abandoning some of the comedy, but that can make for a more artistic story :)

I didn’t see this when it first came out, but loved it when I found it because of how self-aware it was and how it made fun of its own tropes even as it made good use of them.

I don’t know what ever possessed me to watch this anime. I am more into Death Note, Future Diary, Black Butler… etc. but I am SOOO glad that I did. This anime looked so Cheesy. But after watching the first episode I was HOOKED. I just LOVE this anime. There are moments where you feel very cringy and uncomfortable. But the humour in this show is hilarious. “Commoner Coffee” and the whole debate/discussion on it. Just super funny. At first glance I thought Tamaki (being the rich boy) would be a total spoiled, bratty, douchebag. But boy, am I glad to be wrong. He’s actually super sweet and very protective of Haruhi. In fact, all the guys in the host club are. Anyways, I don’t want to spoil it for those who have not yet watched the show. But I kept hearing they were going to release another season, but so far, I haven’t seen it. I wish it would release soon because I can’t wait to see what other whacky adventures the characters get into. 🥰🥰🥰

I love this show, I have watched it multiple times so far, Great video, but from the start I have a small problem, they didn't call Haruhi gay as an insult, they called her that because they thought that she was a guy, and they are a hostclub. They believed that Haruhi had come to visit them for their services.

It’s not perfect, even has problematic stuff and what not, but it’s still my favorite anime lol Also, to me at least a lot of the show comes off as a sort of parody on the genre, which makes a lot of what can be seen as cringy actually really funny. I really like that it’s more of a comedy with romance than a romance with comedy.

My eldest is about your age born in '97 I remember watching this with her it became one of her favorites. Then with my younger girl who consumes BL romance anime while dating a girl. We had some interesting talks with it. Honestly I think it helped because she is nonbinary (I think that's the term) and I'm ok with that. It helped her tell me as well as get that I'm ok with my children just being whoever they are. I'm from the Robotech age of anime but still love to watch new series and older ones.

Half the joy of watching this (as a much older person in that time) was the cringe factor. And the other half was just loving the characters for who they were. The twincest still icks me, but I always took it as "they are playing a part." Which goes back into it being a host club. Basically, all of us watched it and lived it because it was joyful in its own way

this show was recommended to me by a friend at school in like 2013 and was legitimately my first experience with anything even remotely queer/queer adjacent, which looking back now is WILD but it really resonated with me in a way nothing else really had up to that point. it's also one of the few anime i've rewatched (tho admittedly that's cos i watched the dub first). plus, cos none of the text popup boxes were translated in the dub version, it made want to start learning japanese so i could understand them! in retrospect, it may have also solidified my bisexuality (the lesbian school huh folks) and possibly sowed the seeds for eventual not quite binary-ness....huh. so yeah, flaws and all, i owe this show a surprising amount!

I've never really understood the whole 'looking down on shojo' thing. While I can't say that I know much about shojo in general, but what I've noticed is that when you look at successful shojo and successful shonen, shonen tend to be action- and plot-driven while shojo tend to be decision- and character-driven

There are plenty of action shojo out there but most of the time if they get adapted the fight scenes don't look very good (Yona of the Dawn). But there are plenty of action driven shojo manga that are fantastic. Yona of the Dawn, Basara, Oresama Teacher, QQ Sweeper and it's sequel Queen's Quality, and Requiem of the Rose King are all exciting with great characters.

Thank you for this. This anime is on Hulu, and every once in a while I watch some of my favorite episodes. This was one of the ones that got me back into anime in my late thirties in the early aughts. And now, even in my fifties, I am still proud to let my anime geek flag fly, especially for classics like Ouron Host Club.
Personally, I think an Ouran reboot would do really well considering how well the Fruits Basket reboot did in 2019. Fruits Basket wasn't NEARLY as well known as Ouran always has been, so I think a reboot would be exactly what it needs to expand what we didn't get to see. Like Fruits Basket, the original 2000s adaptation only had one season and changed the ending of the story (albeit, Ouran changed way more from the finale than Fruits Basket did), and I think most fans and people who's introduction to Ouran would be the reboot would all enjoy seeing the show with a fresh layer of paint and there would be a significant opportunity to change and fix the show's very apparent problems with LGBTQ issues. Also on this note, I highly recommend Fruits Basket for a video!!

I don’t read manga anymore but Ouran is the one series I still have and re read almost once a year. It’s (and I say this seriously) a perfect manga. I remember in the early books Hatori had her PR address for fan mail and I wrote a probably terrible letter in Japanese to her 😅 Haruhi graduated university the same year I did in real life in the last ever volume and I actually cried when I finished it. It’s beautiful and I would absolutely recommend fans of the anime to read it

As a 12/13 year old, most of the undertones flew over my head, but it remained my comfort anime for almost a decade. It's just got some feel good vibes idk.

What I would personally do if I were to handle the series’ second season (and if possible, beyond) is to make it more otome-esque which i think is (safe to assume) what the writers were trying to go for here. Wherein Haruhi would be given episodes dedicated to spending more time with each male lead in both romantic and platonic ways (strictly platonic for Honey) and without really settling for an endgame for her as (opposed to the manga) to keep things more exciting. And personally, Kaoru was the better love interest potential between the twins, but the development Hikaru had was aso pretty great. Also, also i genuinely wish they just wrote Renge off as a one-off character cus honest to god her entire character just makes me wanna punch her

fun fact: Mori was supposed to be the main love interest of the show because the creator wanted the two together, but after getting a lot of feedback and fans of the manga (while it's still ongoing) saying that they love Tamaki, the creator had to change Mori to Tamaki as the main love interest. It's also the reason why you see some Mori and Haruhi moments (like helping Haruhi out without question, addressing her by her first name, yea) during the first few volumes/episodes edit: Bisco Hatori (the creator of OHSHC) admitted that Mori was a potential love interest. How the change happened is what I remember of what the other fans said back then (back in 2012) but idk if that was confirmed or they were wrong. But it doesn't matter considering that Tamaki is endgame (if you read the manga, yk what happened next). It's a cool fact to know tho

There’s some anime out there that I feel specifically connected to, and Ouran Host Club is definitely one of them.

After watching the show recently, I honestly just really wish they made another season or two. I personally think I could’ve watched a good 3 seasons of the show and enjoyed it all the way through.

I watched this when I was in high school, I was already out the closet, so I wasn't shocked by anything.

Anyway I prefer comedy over romance so this show was just fun to watch for me 👌

I remember, I watched Ohshc thanks to a friend in middle school. She was openly lesbian in a bible belt state and we became best friends and she really taught me a lot about lgbt and led me to my own realization of me being bisexual and own gender realization. I watched Ohshc and we would talk about it all the time and it was just really great.

Haruhi and Kyoko (Skip Beat) both have a special place in my heart for being unusual shojo protagonists, and both Ouran and Skip Beat are very good at subverting shojo tropes.

the twins we're probably some of my first gay crushes, before I even knew I was trans, which cause quite a few years of loving mlm pairings while thinking I was female and thus I must be fetishizing the relationships.

I love this show and it has a very special place in my heart for its foothold in my queer journey.

I watched this show dubbed in high school, around the time it came out. It was a show that made me very comfortable in my decision to come out, because even though there were some parts that were problematic (even by 2006 standards) it was a very heartwarming show. When the opening kicks in as Haruhi drives the carriage, it still gives me feels!
Steph-el Hace un mes
As someone that followed Ouran as it was publishing, the reason that the second season was so delayed/not made is because the manga was put on hiatus multiple times due to Bisco Hatori's health. They had another manga too called Millennium Snow that had a nearly 10 year hiatus before it was ended. I remember after a particularly long hiatus after the anime for Ouran had ended, most of the fandom had petered off in interest, so the actual finale for the manga was a quiet affair. I kinda hoped when Fruits Basket was rebooted that a bunch of the old Shoujo anime/manga I read in high school would get new adaptations. I want completed works!
Steph-el Hace 29 días
@Skullastic See, I'm a western reader, and I wasn't talking about sales. I was talking about hype in the fan communities, as it was really quiet in comparison to the end of fruits basket, and a lot of people in my online circles left before the ouran finale. How to phrase it better? I was part of a lot of fan boards and I saw tons of people leave and those that stayed switched fandoms or let ouran go into the background. Mind you, this was years ago, and I left shortly after the finale cause no one was talking about it. If you experienced it differently, then you might have been part of a more dedicated group than most of mine.

But yeah, I sorely wish they would reboot Ouran after the success of the FB reboot too, we can only keep hoping.

I first watched this show when I was 13, and to this day it's one of my favorite anime. The reason? It's quite literally meant to make fun of traditional harems (boring male lead, with a bunch of interesting females), but flipping the roles, and still making everyone interesting in the process. But along with it making fun of a basic formula we're used to seeing, it still makes you want to root for your preferred love interest. Plus, as we're learning, it awakened a lot of things in people. Haruhi as a character was ahead of the times, and I'm one of many people whose pronouns have changed now that I'm older. So many things to love about this show, or at least laugh about, and feel the nostalgia

I like the romance and all, but I think I liked the comedy more and looked forward to it the most. It's most likely largely due to me being Aro/Ace. And to be honest, I quite like that Haruhi doesn't really end up with anyone at the end. You yourself had mentioned the host club being a found family, and it'd be kinda weird to marry somebody within your family. Haruhi doesn't have to be in a romantic relationship with anybody. Perhaps they're happy with this familial bond with their friends. Sure, these feelings may advance to something stronger in the future, but it doesn't have to happen in such a short period.

Kyouya's arc is one of my favorites in any series. I don't know if you caught it, but in the end he didn't need his father to give him the company, he actually BOUGHT all the debt the company was in with money he earned HIMSELF through the host club and other ventures. He then took the company he now OWNED and gave it back to his father. Not because he couldn't handle the company, but because he didn't NEED his father's recognition or approval anymore. It didn't mean anything. And I don't know, maybe I related more to Kyouya's family issues, but I loved where he ended up, and was so proud of him for breaking through that frame and painting something incredible.

For the longest time I couldn't figure out why this show struck such a chord with me. Now, knowing I am aro ace, I am fully aware that it was refreshing to see a main charecter with no immediate desire for romance. Haruhi does things because she cares about people first and foremost, romance isn't off of the table, but she is a person with a life outside of love and that life takes precedence. Haruhi stays in the host club because she enjoys it, not because of any romantic attractions to her club mates. I also find a lot of comfort in the abundance of comedy, that's mostly just a me thing though

Haruhi was 100% my bi awakening. My favorite match for them was always Kasanoda because he started developing feelings for who Haruhi was as a person regardless of gender. I didn’t realize why that appealed to me so much back then but it makes perfect sense in retrospect.

I always shipped Haruhi with Koya simply because while he always teased her, he treated Haruhi like a competent person & with respect. But the reason it was only one season, was because the manga was still on going & the anime had already overtaken where the manga was at the time of development. (the contents of the last few episodes are not even in the manga) This is one of the anime's I'd love to see get a reboot/remake.

My first time watching this I just thought it was going to be a cutesy cartoon to pass some time with. I was a bit taken aback at first at the overt homosexual behavior because well that never happened in any of the cartoons I’ve seen before. I really enjoyed the jokes, how dramatic the characters were, and the shade that was sometimes thrown around. It was purely entertaining and I had no idea what foolishness was going to happen. My boyfriend at the time thought I was a complete basket case when I was watching it because of how “gay” the characters were being. I just thought the dramatics were funny didn’t care what their sexuality was anyway.
