By in Anime

I just finished Ouran High School Host Club :(

I watched the anime several years ago and since they never came out with a second season I went ahead and read the manga. I wish that there were another series like it, but there really isn't that I can find.

I then decided to watch the rest of the xxxHolic anime which I had started watching several years ago. The ending was just... something. They are supposedly continuing the series, but I don't see how they could fix the events that unfolded at the end. I'm pretty disappointed about that. Overall I really liked it, though.

I wish I could find a really good series, but I'm really picky about anime as most of the main characters are cheesy/whiny and irritating. Every so often though, there's something that really grabs me.

I don't know anything about anime at all.

That's ok, it's really not for everyone... and most of it is bad, actually, even though there are a few that I really like.

It just has to be your thing to enjoy it.

I have seen both these series and I loved them. I don't read the novels but my best friend got me addicted to anime.

You mean the live action movie? Is it worth watching? I watched a couple of minutes of it but it looked pretty weird lol...

I only read the manga if the anime doesn't finish the story line. Got any suggestions for me?

I love Ouran Host Club and own the DVD Boxset for it. I did end up peeking at the manga to see how it ended and noticed it had gone further than the anime, but without knowing the manga, I found the anime had a satisfying ending on it's own.

xxxHolic is tied in with Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. I actually own all books but the last one of Tsubasa, and the ending may provide some explanation if the ending of xxxHolic was not properly explained. Although I myself have not watched xxxHolic yet, so I don't know what kind of ending it had and what made it... something lol. Don't tell me, I will watch it eventually! Tsubasa's ending wasn't quite what I was expecting, but they are continuing the series.

You should read Ouran! It ended really well. It was wrapped up better than the anime, even though I was fine with the anime ending.

Apparently xxxHolic is also still running, but it seems like they're floundering with it and not sure what to do with the story line. I feel like they rushed the ending and now they're trying to go back and fix it lol... I think the next chapter comes out in a few days. Regardless of how it will end, it's definitely worth watching. I read a few volumes of Tsubasa when I was in high school, but I haven't followed up on it. Maybe I should.

I absolutely love this series! Made me laugh so much. It was kind of cute how they ended it. Never read the manga though.

xxxholic is one anime I remember liking very much, same for Ouran. I think while vastly different they both had a kind of charm about them. I like that Ouran broke a lot of stereotypes while the art style in xxxholic was very interesting to look at (plus I like almost anything from CLAMP)
