  • Another really great episode!

    Although I didn't enjoy this episode as much as I did the last one, it was still spectacular. I loved the beggining part when Haruhi walked into the room and it was like a tropical paradise, and still the guys in the club use their usual good looks and stuff to attract the clothes. And when we learned Tamaki didn't actually do all the work the other guy did, that wasn't so surprising. So the twins (who are my favorite characters right now) say that this girl named Kanako has "host wandering sickness", and can't decide which host to stay with... it turns out she really likes this other guy who makes tea cups. In the ending Tamaki while hosting a Ouran Host Club dance party makes an elaborate scheme to bring the two love birds together. In the process though, Haruhi disguised a guy must give Kanako a kiss on the cheek, but Tamaki slips on a banana peel and makes Haruhi kiss Kanako on the lips instead. XD. So it was a superb episode overall.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Running Gag - Bananas: Nature's Accident Factory. This is the first accident using banana peels for such purpose (but not the last).

    • Animation Error: The twins are always shown as being the same height, yet when the club members are gathered around a picture of Haruhi, one twin is drawn taller than the other.

    • Symbolism - Tea Cup Ride: The episode uses an amusement park's Tea Cup ride as a representation of Kanako's situation.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (Tamaki slipped on a banana and accidently pushed Haruhi, making her kiss Kanako)

      Haruhi: Even though I gave my first kiss to a girl by a weird series of events, the night had a good feel to it.

    • Kyouya: (Starting up the Dance party) We wish you to enjoy this dance with all our host club members. Also, to the lady who displays the best dance... to the guest who is chosen as the queen tonight... you shall receive a warm kiss from our king on your cheek.

      Tamaki: Do your best, baby... (The girls scream in excitement)

    • Kanako: Pardon me. I believe it is almost time for the next shift now.
      Haruhi: Oh, I'm sorry. You're my next customer...
      Kanako: Kasugasaki Kanako from Class 2-B. You are much cuter than the rumors give credit. I have decided. I will make you my next favourite.

      (Tamaki overhears and and gets angry)

    • (Everyone in the Host club is wearing a Tropical costume)

      Tamaki: I've prepared your costume too, Haruhi! And... It's a paired set with mine!
      Haruhi: No thank you.

    • Tamaki: Mom! Haruhi's using foul language!

      Kaoru: Mom being...?

      Kyouya: Position-wise...probably me.

  • NOTES (5)

    • Manga Chapter(s): Volume 1 Chapter 2

    • Romanji Title: Koukousei host no oshigoto

    • Character Note - Tamaki and Kyouya: Tamaki refers to himself as Haruhi's "daddy," since he feels responsible for protecting her. He refers to Kyoya as "mommy," much to Kyoya's disinterested amusement.

    • Character Note - Haruhi: We learn that Haruhi has a craving for rather expensive food like ootoro (fancy tuna in Funimation dub) since she doesn't get to eat such things normally.

    • Character Note - Kyoya: We learn that while Tamaki is the official president of the club, Kyoya is the aptly named "Shadow King" who handles all aspects of actually running the club.
