Ouran Live Action… finally!
At last the long excruciating wait is over! Umandar na naman ang aking pagiging otaku nang mabasa ko mula sa JPop Asia na magkakaroon ng live action ang aking most loved anime of all time, walang iba kundi ang Ouran High School Host Club! You can imagine kung gaano ako kasaya nang biglang mag-pop out ang balitang iyan out of nowhere mula sa aking FB newsfeeds, hohoho! Para sa mga Ouran fans like me, here’s the much awaited press release and this time, I think it’s already official:
Popular anime series Ouran High School Host Club will be aired as a live action drama series. The drama will begin airing in July.
The romantic comedy series Ouran High School Host Club started off as a manga series that debuted in LaLa in August of 2003. An anime adaptation of the series was then aired in April of 2006, becoming a hit series. Now the series will become a live action drama series in July of 2011.
The July issue of LaLa magazine revealed the plans for the drama version of the hit series. Ouran High School Host Club will air on TBS. Yusuke Yamamoto stars as the host club’s president, Tamaki Suo. Haruna Kawaguchi stars as the female lead Haruhi Fujioka.
Ouran High School Host Club is the story of Haruhi. She pretends to be a boy so she can join her school’s Host Club. The romantic comedy focuses on the relationships within the club.

Well I think the cast is almost perfect, though I somewhat had a different live action Tamaki and Haruhi character bets to begin with, kekeke (I was secretly rooting for Horikita Maki and Ikuta Toma for the live action remake of Ouran). Oh well, whatever! What’s important is that Ouran will finally be in live action! And this time, I wish it’ll have a perfect ending.
I totally can’t wait for July to come. This news absolutely made my day. Ouran jjang!!!
