Ouran Koukou Host Club © Hatori Bisco/Hakusensha [Serialized in LaLa]
Published in Singapore as Ouran High Host Club by Chuang Yi
No more Ouran hosts? The Chairman succeeds in mothballing the Host Club and Haruhi's fangirls are shocked to see their bifauxnen revert to her pre-Host Club “ugly duckling” self in Ouran High Host Club 17. Haruhi has her reasons, but...
Meanwhile, despite his father's meddling, Tamaki continues to pursue his grandmother's approval, which further levels up the drama. As Chuang Yi puts it:
It's an emotional volume of Ouran High Host Club, not to be missed! (BTW, this Chuang Yi volume has caught up with the Japanese tankou, released last September.)
Karneval—which premiered at the recently-held STGCC 10—is also available now.
Special Abilities, Friendship, Circus, Amnesia, Secret Organizations comprise the top Baka-Updates Manga tags for this ongoing josei fantasy adventure from Mikanagi Touya, but the real draw are the bishies, voiced by some of the most droolicious seiyuu in the biz. At least three drama CDs have been released (with a fourth on the way), featuring Shimono Hiro and Kamiya Hiroshi as leads Nai and Gareki, supported by Miyano Mamoru as Yogi, Ono Daisuke as Hirato and Endou Aya as Tsukumo.

When innocent country boy Nai sets foot into the sordid, cutthroat realm of the city, he might as well have painted a target on his own back. Kidnappers, murderers and desperados abound, waiting to take advantage of a boy guileless enough to believe blood is merely 'red water'. When he is framed for a murder, it is the bandit Gareki who bails him out. Being a shrewd and sharp-eyed thief, however, Gareki's motives are less than pure. Nai is looking for a friend who has disappeared and left behind something particularly intriguing - an I.D bracelet from the organisation named 'Circus', the country's supreme defence agency. While Gareki has his sights set firmly on the bracelet, 'Circus' in turn, has shifted its eye onto the duo as well.
