Ouran High School Host Club 🌸 Volume 2 (桜蘭高校ホスト部)

Thanks! Both for the ebook offset and the table thing. The table thing was copy-paste problem that I didn’t notice. xD (I decided to stop counting weeks from volume 2 onward, but didn’t remember that when I made this chapter’s post!)

The first page of chapter 4 gives an explanation:

このまんがは 進級知らずで都合良くお送りします

I guess they will be third-graders forever.

Aw man, I read that line and totally glazed over it. Thanks!

I’ve always struggled with より〜ほう… use it in a harder/longer sentence, and I get a bit lost. I’m guessing that 俺たちの場合 means in our case (our=club members? Or is he just referring to himself despite using 俺たち?) + being admired, rather then admiring + 忙しい訳だが = because we are busy with this => (It’s because) In our case we are busy mostly being admired rather then admiring.
Is this interpretation/translation correct?

You know he has a twin, just beside him :grinning:

How are people feeling on pace? After this week, we have one more chapter of Ouran in one week, and then two weeks of an unrelated short story. In that way, we do have like a longer break if someone needs to catch up, because the unrelated story can always be read at another time.

I’ll probably set up polls for volume 3 soon. Remember to buy that volume very soon if you’re planing to get it in paper.

It’s a little on the fast side for me at the moment, but I think it’s still doable. As you said, we have the short stories coming up, so I’ll personally stick to the pace and try to compensate it then if needed.

Those weeks are also a bit shorter. 22 pages vs current 32ish pages. So that should hopefully help too. :slight_smile:

I have a couple of questions.

Page 29 (chapter 4 - early part 2)


What is happening in the marked bubble? “学校っつっても” What is this? I have no idea how to break it down and even ichi.moe got confused. :joy:


Page 54 (early chapter 5)


I can’t put together what it is Tamaki says in his bubbles to the right. And by extension not entirely sure about the bubble to the left either.

It is 学校って言っても

Page 54

He is comparing the twins with a (good-for-nothing) painkiller (バフOリン) used by common people.

自分達の思い通りにいかないとすぐコレでね When they don’t get their way, immediately this
できそこないの鎮痛剤の様なものさ It’s like a good-for-nothing painkiller.
バフOリンの半分はやさしさでできているが Half of the バフOリン is kindness.
彼らの半分はワガママでできているのだから Half of them is selfishness.

I guess that means it is the ゆう reading of 言う? Because I don’t see how て + いって becomes つって but I guess て + ゆって would make sense to become つって. The twins… for real, sometimes they just completely stump me.

Thanks! (Also for page 54 help!)

A character in the book I am reading right now talks using a lot of っつ but I did not wonder about it till now :sweat_smile: I found this. It seems to be a characteristic of the Tokyo dialect.
From one of the answers:

~と言って の「と」と「い」が縮まって、「つ あるいは とぅ」となっているのでしょう。というか、が、つうか になるのと同じでしょう。

Seems like this mangaka has a soft spot for mischievous twins, doesn’t she? :joy: I’m finding this chapter even more enjoyable than a typical Ouran chapter. I am happy that we decided to read it.

I have to say that not only do I appreciate the mischievous twins being girls, I also just appreciate having more female characters in general, especially the more eccentric kind. I know that the idea of Ouran is basically it being a reverse harem, but I miss having female characters around with interesting personalities.

Me too! Ouran’s female characters are mostly audience with the same personality.
