The Power of Moé

Ouran High School Host Club starts off as an uproariously funny anime series about a bunch of boys in a somewhat Japanese Harvard or Princeton type institute (with the distinction of the said institute being a school as opposed to a university) whose sole aim is to bring joy and happiness to the life of the girls attending the Ouran High School Academy. The jokes, however, become somewhat monotonous and repetitive by the middle (this effect is especially prominent if you watch twenty odd episodes on one day) and the ending is somewhat schmaltzy for NF's taste but overall, NF has to concede that its gags are very, very funny - often in an over-the-top, silly way that animes have become so good at delivering. NF also suspects that had he not been in a rush to finish the series off in such a short time, he wouldn't have kvetched about, in fact would have scarcely noticed the said monotony/repetitiveness. NF's quest for funny animes will now lead him to watch Hetalia: Axis Powers - another comedy epic he's heard very good things about. Wish him luck!
