Who Does Haruhi Belong With? Ouran High School Host Club

We usually know how different manga and anime can be. Fans of Ouran High School Host Club weren’t too happy with the ending of the anime.  Haruhi and Tamaki fell into a HUG instead of a kiss at the end, causing many fangirls to scream.

Despite the different endings in the manga and anime, who did YOU want to end up with Haruhi?

Well, most of us know who Haruhi’s ending up with, but I personally am also a Kyouya Ootori fan. Out of all the characters of the Ouran High School Host Club, he’s the only one I could properly match up with Haruhi. Haruhi’s smart. She’s there at Ouran Academy because she’s an honor student. Kyouya Ootori, like Haruhi, is an advanced thinker, therefore, he needs someone like Haruhi, who is another intellectual like him. I think it would allow for better communication for a serious relationship.

Also, Haruhi can quickly see past the “cool and uncaring” front Kyouya always has up, I think Kyouya needs someone that can dive into deeper water instead of just going with shallow appearances and status.

When I picture Haruhi with the other characters, I tend to find a lot of reasons why they should not be together, which is why I believe ultimately, Kyouya suits her best.


And the Others!

Tamaki, the second-best candidate, is much too dramatic and flirtatious. He also flaunts his money and status… a lot. Although Tamaki occasionally has a shining moment or two where he acts like a normal human being I just don’t think he fits Haruhi’s personality. I get the whole opposites to attract thing… but in a real-world situation, they wouldn’t always work.  Basically, I think that Tamaki is a fun fling for Haruhi, but when it comes down to it… can I see them in a serious relationship? No way. For high school… maybe… for a serious life partner… I just can’t picture it.

As for Mori or Honey, well… they’re together. You can’t exactly have her paired with either because that means they’re not together. And how could you possibly break up such an adorable couple? It’s ironic because the creators actually intended for Haruhi to end up with Mori. I LOVE Mori-sempai as a character and want him to be happy, but I think he’s gay for Honey.

Now as for the twins… I’ve just never ever considered them serious candidates, they act more like brothers towards Haruhi than anything, even though Hikaru shows interest and Kaoru grudgingly accepts it. This is shown more in the anime than in the manga, but their character development does help them more.

Wouldn’t it be cute if the twins found a set of female twins that they fell in love with?

One of my favorite fanfictions (I’ve mentioned this before) is a Karou and Haruhi pairing. This ultimately sold me to be on one of the twin’s sides.


Each of the Host characters has such special places in my heart. I can’t really hurt any of them and I wanted all of them to end up happy. Since Haruhi ended up with Tamaki, I fell into the Kyoya and Renge ship. I mean, she’s just a complete otaku and I think she could keep him on his toes.

What do YOU think? Who is your favorite pairing/ship here? Let me know in the comments below!

As always,
