Host clubs tend to be rare in anime and manga but their rarity is what makes them special as well.

But Haruhi is a girl, right? Yeah, but in this Host Club, she can fit in because of her masculine appearance.

 

As time passes by with the host club getting together, things get a lot more entertaining and engaging.

 

A series that dives into the lives of host club members is rare as I said.

 

However, this is one of the finest pieces of works out there.

However, this principle changes soon when the Cute and Curious Chitanda Eru meets Oreki. Together, they both ended in the Classic club and have their own issues.

 

Things would get interesting for a loner like Oreki when he solves the unsolved mysteries of his school with Chitanda, by his side.

 

This anime is great for anyone who wants to enjoy some wholesome yet gripping mystery.

 

It's not thought-provoking but rather, calm and entertaining.
