Ouran High School Host Club is about Haruhi Fujioka. She is a student of Ouran Academy and has a very dull school life. While finding a quiet place to study, Haruhi meets a group of boys who claim to be members of the Ouran High School Host Club. She became their best friend as she gets closer to the members of the club and adopts their ways and perspective of life.
You must be wondering about what ‘services’ were provided by this club? So their only aim in their journey as a high school club was to seek “Happiness for Women” and this service has no end to it. The storyline of the first season came to a conclusive end but still, the fans have been eagerly waiting for another season of this anime. Let us check the chances of that happening and the updates about Ouran High School Host Club Season 2.
Season 1: Trailer, Cast, Plot & Where to Watch
Officially, there is no trailer of Ouran High School Host Club Season 2 uploaded by the showrunners. There are many fan-made trailers available on youtube. Following is the most-watched trailer of Season 1 on YouTube.
The show aired from 4 April to 26th of September in the year 2006. The main cast of the show had:
- Maaya Sakamoto as Haruhi Fujioka
- Mamoru Miyano as Tamaki Suou
- Masaya Matsukaze as Kyouya Otori
- Kenichi Suzumura as Hikaru Hitachiin
- Yoshinori Fujita as Kaoru Hitachiin
- Ayaka Saito as Mitsukuni Haninozuka
- Daisuke Kirii as Takashi Morinozuka and many more artists.
The first season revolved around Haruhi who joins Ouran Academy’s host club to pay off her debt after accidentally breaking an expensive vase. She is thought to be a boy by her fellow students at the school as she keeps short hair. A host club is a group of boys only, so she has to maintain this secret with her.
As the story continues, Haruhi fails to keep her identity a secret from the club and still she gets accepted by this club as Tamaki, the club leader got a massive crush on Haruhi. The plot gets crazier as Haruhi and her club members fall into a number of shenanigans while trying to protect her identity from others.
The main purpose of this club was to entertain the girls of the school for profit. A plot where a girl pretends to be a boy and a club who entertain girls of the school combine together and fall into the craziest of incidents was something unique and much ahead of its time. Perhaps that’s why the story was able to pull everyone’s attention toward it.
Even those who are new to this anime world, are recommended to start with Ouran High School Host Club so that they understand the true nature of anime where the storyline is centered on the entertainment of its audience
What Made Season 1 So Popular?
The show was not just about hilarious moments and comedy. There were a few heart-touching and warm moments shared between the characters of the show. The storyline also had a love angle, where the host club leader, Tamaki, had a crush on Haruhi throughout the show.
This is probably the reason behind this anime becoming popular amongst fans as it has every genre linked to it.

Interesting stories like Ouran High School Host Club have successfully established anime as an industry, competing with global film and series.
Ouran High School Host Club Season 2: Will It Be Renewed?
There are no concrete answers to why this hit series hasn’t returned with Ouran High School Host Club Season 2. Even after over a decade, exactly 16 years to be precise, there is no confirmation about the renewal or cancellation of the second season of Ouran High School Host Club.
Fans got some rays of hope in the form of the English voice actor for Hikaru, Todd Haberkorn. The artist claimed that there were plans for a season two. He mentions in a video, dating to 2016, that he was approached by the show’s creative team for season two of Ouran High School Host Club but there holds no evidence to back his revelation.
