Ouran High School Host Club
Haruhi Fujioka is a scholarship student at the prestigious Ouran Academy, a fictitious high school in Bunkyo, Tokyo. Looking for a quiet place to study, Haruhi heads to the Third Music Room, believing that since there is no class there, that it should be quieter than even the library. Instead, she finds that the Host Club has taken residence there! The Host Club is comprised of six male students that gather to entertain female ‘clients’. During their first meeting, Haruhi accidentally knocks over and breaks an antique vase valued at 8 million yen and is told to replay the cost in services to the club. With her messy hair and gender-ambiguous face, they ask her to become a host and she agrees, since it would help her pay off her debt faster. A great comedy with hilarious themed episodes, Ouran is perfect if you’re looking for a cute show with a good laugh!
What would you do if you were stuck in limbo after death? What if you entered this limbo and discovered other students equipped with militaristic weapons targeted at the school rep? Freak out? Well that’s exactly what Otonashi does after waking up. Without his memories, he has no idea what’s going on and is severely skeptical about whether or not he’s really dead. That is, until they show him that they can’t die. Crushed by a boulder? You’ll wake up just fine moments later, although you do feel the pain. Yuri, the leader of the Afterlife Battlefront, invites him to join the fight against God for the cruel fates the members experienced in life. They refuse to blend in with the school setting and follow the “plan” as they search for proof that God exists, and if so, why they had such cruel lives. Angel Beats is perfect for any viewer who is looking for comedy, an interesting take on purgatory, or both.
