Ouran High School Host Club follows the story of Haruhi, a tomboyish girl on a scholarship of a high school for the wealthy. She skates by unnoticed until one day she breaks an expensive vase belonging to a host club at her school. In order to pay for this vase, she must dress as a boy and participate in the club’s host club activities. Her tomboyish look comes in handy, as the clients aren’t able to figure out she is actually a girl.
