Crunchyroll Adds Ouran High School Host Club to Digital Lineup

The greatest host club of all awaits you. Will you be their guest?

Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they added 2006 comedy series Ouran High School Host Club to their digital lineup. The series is available in its entirety (in subtitled format) for members in select regions.

Ouran High School Host Club is based on Bisco Hatori’s manga of the same name. Takuya Igarashi (Bungo Stray Dogs, Soul Eater) helmed the project at Bones, with Kumiko Takahashi (Cardcaptor Sakura, Snow White with the Red Hair) providing character designs. Yoji Enokido (Bungo Stray Dogs, Revolutionary Girl Utena) was in charge of series composition for the title.

Crunchyroll describes the show as:

You’ll fall for the boys in the Ouran Host Club: Tamaki’s truly romantic. Kaoru and Hikaru offer displays of brotherly love. You’ll adore brainy Kyoya, innocent Honey, and manly Mori. Oh, and don’t forget Haruhi. He knows what girls want—of course, it’s because he’s a girl too! The Hosts must do their best to hide her secret, but Haruhi’s having a blast turning their perfect world upside down.

Funimation currently holds the domestic rights to Ouran High School Host Club and streams the dub on FUnimationNow.

Anime Herald: What’s a nice, classically trained artist like you doing in a place like this? Kai Lun Qu: I always felt like I never really belonged or fit in the fine art industry.
