However a few comments got me thinking about it in further detail. And then there were others who thought Tamaki was being sexist when he got angry with Haruhi for not calling for help during the beach scene, which made me wonder if I had missed something or worse, left my brain at the door too long. By the way, unless otherwise stated, I will be using the manga as a reference point because a I am a purist and b it is the source material after all. Any discussion of the merit scene has to take into consideration the events leading up to it. In a nutshell, Haruhi is pushed off a cliff while trying to defend a girl from three men. The other girls alert the host club members and Tamaki goes in after her while the rest deal with the assailants. Tamaki: Haruhi, are you a martial arts expert like Hunny-senpai?
It was an early morning, and the sun was just beginning to rise. I was woken up by an annoying boyfriend banging on her front door telling me to get ready for school. Why is he here so early? I pulled open the front door to reveal a very disorganized boyfriend. Wearing an Ouran University School suit jacket, and a pair of bear pajama pants. His shoes weren't even the same. He's such an idiot sometimes, why did I even fall for this guy. Aren't you concerned about being late for school..
At its heart, Ouran is about gender and, for better or worse, how it is perceived and performed. Though often praised and adored for its challenges to heteronormativity and gender roles through its range of characters, especially its protagonist, it ends up reinforcing heteronormativity and the gender binary to a large extent. Real world host clubs have a bit of scandal and infamy attached to them. Traditionally, a host club is a place for rich men and sometimes women to talk with pretty young women who are hired to flirt with them, though there are a few host clubs with attractive young men who cater to rich women and sometimes men.
Discaimer: We in no way own Ouran High Ritsu- If i did i would bump off lilpsyco and take all the fame and glory for myself, Just kidding, I'm sorry, I love you to much. I would just lock you in a closet and take the money, so please don't be frightened. Warning: There is rape, so be warned, i'm sorry but if you don't like it leave now or forever hold your peace. Please and Thank You!! Have a nice day!!
