That episode where Tamaki is faking a cold to ignore his feelings for Haruhi is gold, and that ending where Mori admits he wants to kiss Hunny, that’s GOLD people and I’m personally offended that it was not included in the anime version.

4.5 stars.
Whenever I hear about Tamaki and his mother, I weep.
Also the twins are still my fave <3

The hijinks continue as we continue the origin stories of club members, this time focusing on the twins, whom I think I can finally tell apart. We also get an exchange student who shares some emotional resonance with Tamaki, and the boys contrive to bring a little elegance into Haruhi's life. Tag on another great episode of Love Egoist and you get a really fun little volume that manages to pull your heart strings occasionally.

I liked the first story in this volume about how the twins joined the host club. I also liked the third story about Tamaki being “sick.” I could have done without the second story about that annoying princess though.

I just love this series. I especially love this installment because of the twins' backstory!

I loved the first (how the twins joined the Host Club) and the last (Tamaki having the flu) episodes. I didn't really care much for the episode with the princess, though it does give us a bit more of a background on Tamaki and the opportunity to let him and Haruhi get closer. I love how freaking clueless Tamaki is when it comes to his feelings for Haruhi, haha! The bonus material was once again superb, I want an Egoist Club series!

Omg, things are heating up - and then Tamaki the Clueless strikes again.

The way Tamaki convinces the Hitachiin twins, Kaoru and Hikaru, to join the host club is amazing! I love his dedication and how much he truly sees and understands about people.

The princess part isn't my fav. I really am not a fan of entitlement to that extent. I understand it yes, doesn't mean I like it.

Poor sick Tamaki!!! I sort of rolled my eyes and laughed at this portion just because it is SO BLATANTLY OBVIOUS what is going on. The fact that he is so blind to it makes him endearing.

Overall Rating: A
Synopsis: Created by Bisco Hatori, the series follows Haruhi Fujioka, a scholarship student at the prestigious Ouran High School. Haruhi is a girl, but she got gum put in her hair so she cut it short, and wears boys clothes. This wouldn't be terribly important, but one day she stumbles across the school's Host Club. The Host Club is basically a place for six idly rich pretty boys to be idly rich pretty boys, and idly rich pretty girls to come and fawn over them and pretend the b

Volume 9 finally shows us how Tamaki convinced the twins to join the Host Club! Hikaru and Kaoru obviously deal with an identity issue, so Tamaki telling them that they can be separate people and still be a set was obviously world-shattering to them. Tamaki can seem almost selfish in his persistence, but his good heart always shines through as he obviously wants the best for the twins. I'm really curious why the anime gave the flashback version of the twins bowl cuts while they have their normal ...more

Don't Honey and Haruhi look so cute together on the cover of this edition? Totes adorbs!

I read this, and the next three volumes, a few days ago in one sitting but I don't think this volume was the cause of that. It's cute don't get me wrong, but like my last reviews of it say it is a quick read. I still like the back story we get on the twins - and for some reason the drawing of them as leaves growing from one plant is really emotive this time around... not sure why...

The second story builds mor

This volume's flashback is the twins. We see how Tamaki won them over and why they call him "milord." For a comedy, the characters get very fleshed out. I wasn't expecting that. Now I'm actually invested in who Haruhi ends up with and if it's who I think it is, I'm going to be disappointed.

Tamaki is insightful and caring with a spoiled princess who isn't what she seems. Haruhi starts to question what her feelings towards him really are after that. But then Tamaki goes into stronger-than-usual d

This series just keeps getting better as it goes on! I love the out-right ridiculousness of it. It's great!! XD

Just when we think that Tamaki will finally have a realization about his feelings for Haruhi, something happens and we're drawn back to square one. I love it, but it's frustrating. Bisco Hatori does a really good job of dangling Tamaki's and Haruhi's possible relationship in front of us and then yanking it away.

Everytime I read a new volume, I always think, "This is it. This is my favo

Getting to that good character development

I love when they have some actual character development, because the anime did them dirty and we get like the base of who the characters should be. Tamaki's father loves him in this, and we get to see the twins get to be separate but still them. Mori is a whole person and not just someone who carries Hunny around and so it's a great experience!

I get why they added the princess, but I think that she was brought in and then she left like right away so we

This volume contains:
- that episode with the flashback of how tamaki persuaded the twins to join the club
- a chapter with a spoiled princess (it's later explained why she's behaving this way, but I still disliked it)
And my most favorite:
- TAMAKI STARTING TO REALIZE HIS FEELINGS FOR HARUHI AND ASKING MORI IF HE EVER WANTED TO KISS HONEY (spoiler: he does, but lied to tamaki anyway)

lmaaaooo that was the funniest and cutiest moment of this vol.!

That bit where the twins go from ruthlessly mocking Tamaki about the princess who looks like his mom and then immediately turn around and go “we’re going to do whatever you want to make you feel better, Tamaki, chill”? That’s the peak. I don’t know of what but it’s the peak.

Not sure if I should keep zipping through these or savor them a bit more. All are delightfully ridiculous, and I love spotting the differences from the anime as the series progresses.

“We're always contradicting ourselves.
We want people to tell us apart....
...yet we don't want them to be able to.
We want people to get to know us...
...but we also want them to keep their distance.
We've always longed for someone to accept us...
But we never believed there'd be anyone who would accept our twisted ways.
That's why we'll stay locked up tight...
...in our own little private world...
...and throw away the key, so that no one can ever hurt us.”

We'll erase those who want to use us for our family prestige...

...and erase those girls who try to apply their patronizing psychology theories on us...

...and those stupid adults who only judge us by our outward appearances....

We'll erase them all from our consciousness.
