Hikaru has asked Haruhi to go out with him, but he doesn’t want her to answer him right away. Yet at the same time, he’s trying to get Tamaki to realize he’s in love with Haruhi too. Is the Host Club prepared for a love triangle among its members?

This was such a good volume. Hikaru is very considerate of the people around him. Though he wants to be with Haruhi, he doesn’t want to pursue her in a way that would be unfair to her or Tamaki. He knows Tamaki has feelings for her, even if he hasn’t come to terms with them yet. Now he’s worried she may have feelings for him too. But he’s not giving up so easily. I’m glad that he’s doing something for himself, but I’m also glad that he’s helping Tamaki grow up a little. Tamaki has been clinging to his vision of the Host Club as a family for too long. He needs to have that kind of bond because of his own broken home. He doesn’t realize that it doesn’t matter whether they’re family or friends, they have a bond and it’s not going to break easily. Now it’s time for him to think about what that really means, and how he truly feels about Haruhi. I think Megumi’s arrival really shows that to him.

This volume really kept to that theme throughout, which is unique. Usually, there’s one or two chapters that are humorous filler. There are some other interesting things in the works though. I’m curious about the Suoh’s lawyer. Kyoya has a good eye. I love the cunning personality of his character. This series is just getting better and better. I have the next volume on reserve at the library so it will be up soon.

  1. I love it when Tamaki says: "It seems I'm afflicted by some sort of "trauma"…I had no idea such shadows hid in the depths of my soul." All of the stories in this volume were great, all of the character interaction is spot-on.
