Anime Tuesdays: Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High School Host Club is a rite of passage. In the life of every young otaku, a day must come in which they stumble upon Host Club and ask themselves, “what the hell is this and why has everybody watched this?” This sentiment doesn’t

Anime Tuesdays: Black Butler
