Even when she first meets them, she only reacts nervously instead of becoming instantly infatuated like most other girls.
The initial chapters of the manga were re-envisioned in 2006 as a 26-episode anime series and further adapted in 20 into dating sim games.
In 2011, the series re-emerged as a dorama with an accompanying gekijo-ban.
The anime, manga and dorama formats have all been translated into multiple world languages.
Haruhi Fujioka is the main character of the Ouran High School Host Club series.
She is a highly intelligent 1st-year student from a middle-class family ("poor" in the eyes of Ouran students) who attends Ouran Academy on scholarship based upon an entrance exam.
As she is required to remain first in her class to keep her scholarship, her studies are very important to her.
Two characteristics that define Haruhi is her straightforward nature and the belief that one's gender doesn't define one's life choices.
Having been raised under less aflluent circumstances than her classmates at Ouran, she displays more practical and responsible qualities, and is not easily swayed by the charms of the hosts.
Ouran Academy is an elite upper school catering to the ultra-rich.
