Recap / Ouran High School Host Club E 9 A Challenge From Lobelia Girls Academy

Go To

During the cultural festival at Ouran, the host club receives a visit from the Lobelia's Zuka Club. Upon learning what has been going on with Haruhi, the club president decides to have her transferred to Lobelia.

This episode provides examples of:

  • I Choose to Stay: Despite everything that has happened throughout the episode, Haruhi chooses to remain at Ouran.
  • Incredibly Conspicuous Drag : Thinking that it will convince her to stay, the host club (minus Mori) dresses up as women, offering to give her a chance to be with both men and women.
  • Advertisement:
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Benio spends most of the episode within Haruhi's personal bubble, much to her discomfort.
  • Not So Stoic: Haruhi, who's normally composed and deadpan, busts out laughing at the host club's crossdressing.
  • Running Gag: Just about anytime a monkey appears onscreen, a character slips on a banana peel.
  • School Girl Lesbians: Benio openly admits that students at Lobelia are lesbians. At one point, all three members of the Zuka Club fawn over Haruhi.
  • We Will Meet Again: Benio declares near the end of the episode that the Zuka Club will return to "rescue" Haruhi from the host club.

How well does it match the trope?
