    Ok guys...Don't freak out but... THOSE MESSAGES ARE ALL FROM ME!!!!!!!! Triumphant Tamaki

    This is NO LIE. I can prove it!

    Crystal- That's my REAL name! And the title of the message is ALOHA! I'm from Hawaii that's why.(But I'm currently studying in Philippines for a while so you might find a filipino message being sent soon).
    Misty- I was watching Pokemon at the time. And the title of the message has #1 in it!
    Reid- This message was from my little brother, actually. I read him the manga from manga.animea and he loves it! It runs in the family... Wink
    *And...all the messages are in order and in FULL english (I was too lazy yesterday to find the japanese translations to them)

    OMG! I feel like I'm flying right now!!! Onion Skipping AHHH!!! I'm so happy!!! Onion Daydreaming
    After all the past messages I sent and weren't approved, I never would have expected 3 of them would be approved at the same time!!!! So now I have 4 approved messages in total. I really am Ouran's #1 supporter!!!!

    So keep sending your messages!!! Because miracles DO happen!!!! Onion Thumbs Up

    It was REALLY a huge surprise for me also. Maybe whoever deals with the website felt sorry for me and approved my messages to shut me up? Laughing

    OMG!!! Ouran really is ranked 3 today. This is GREAT!!! I totally understand why- episode 5 was the best episode so far and it was filled with EPICNESS!!! Hopefully things will get better and better from here... Onion Starry Eyes

    I too think that they should extend the drama. I thought were going to get at least 15 eps.
    I would love it though if they could do 25 Very Happy

    Hey everyone! I'm so glad I found this support group because this show is such an awesome show! And I'm making sure to go the site many times and write to the fan messages! And I would like to say thanks to you guys because reading this really pushes me even harder to become a lawyer and some how finding away to work with legal issues so that we the foreign fans can find a way to enjoy and support shows from different countries like Japan!!

    Your message is on page 5 (but it may change as new messages are put on.

    Speaking of new messages, Congratulations to Laila007 (I'm guessing this is also from you) and NEU! Your messages were approved and displayed on the website! cheers

    If you haven't checked out the newest discussion, Ouran is being made into a widescreen movie! And I'd like to think that we foreigners also helped with this progress. Onion Liar Anyway, let's continue doing our best to show our support for Ouran. Since they're making a movie, why not a second season?? Hmm...*gets ready to write another message* This proves that if you fight for what you believe in, you may just win.

    FYI, NEU is not me! I'm so happy there's another Indonesian sending a message!
    YES! One movie is still not enough! They have to go with another 2 seasons, a special, and a 2nd movie, desho???

    To those, who still haven't join the fan club, pls share our your troubles in applying, maybe we can help!

    Don't forget to pre-order Ouran photobook to show your support!
    http://www.hmv.co.jp/en/product/detail/4162922

    Apparently, we can order the latest Lala mag October Issue, which has a bonus of Ouran live-action MEMORIAL PHOTOBOOK, at HMV too!
    http://www.hmv.co.jp/product/detail/4188125

    And let's keep sending in the messages, minna!

    We'll make sure that "Ouran High School Host Club" is a success and make them come filming scenes at places near where you live! (anyone from Boston / Barcelona / Paris? Onion XD) If Ouran become a big success, I don't think it's a dream that the cast will go to those cities for filmings^^

    Hiya! I just wanted to remind people that it's important to show your support for this show! There has been no new english messages on their website for a while now. Just because we succeeded in having an Ouran movie, it doesn't mean we're finish just yet! It's now time to work on having them make a second season. Come on! We can do it! cheers

    Oh! And here are the new rankings!:
    * #4- Most accessed site (DAILY) on TBS...out of 20!
    * #35- Top Dramas (EVER!) on Dramacrazy...out of 1681! (very impressive!)
    * #7- Most viewed dramas (WEEKLY) on mysoju...out of 25!

    Good job guys- the rankings are good! Let's keep this up! Triumphant Tamaki

    You're welcome, Neu! So glad to see another Indonesian here, coz as far as I know we have many Ouran manga fans here. Haha... so you'll join this forum only if your msg got through? that's quite unusual, but you got through anyway, so congrats!!
    May I know where you live? Do you live in Indonesia or in another country (like Japan)?

    Actually they haven't update the Fan Message corner at all since Thursday. (so not only English msg, but Japanese msgs are also pending now) Also, the link to join the fanclub is not on the main page anymore, replaced by the movie announcement, and the fanclub members number is usually updated every Friday, but its not updated last Friday. I wonder, if they stop accepting fanclub members? Sad

    We can still access the fanclub application page directly here, though: http://www.tbs.co.jp/ouran2011/info/fanclub.html

    I have 4 things to convey to Ouran L-A fans here.

    1. In the Fans Message section of the official site, you can actually write your request and/or comments about the video clips in the MOVIE GALLERY of the official site. But please make sure you have it translated to Japanese first.
    I just realized this when they mentioned in the Chiba's Drawing 3rd video, that this corner is popular among the fans and they received many requests from the fans for extending this corner. I've always been reading the Fans Message so far, but I think I've only seen 1 message that says she likes this corner and want to see more of it XD (I dunno if there were requests via Twitter though)
    So, I'm thinking, maybe the staff will always consider stuff, even only 1 person request it^^ However, the MOVIE GALLERY is not suppose to be able to be viewed by people outside Japan. So, I think it's best if we send in the requests in Japanese. You can ask me to translate your request, or I'll post the request for you. Just let me know your request^^
    I'm already thinking to send a message that says I love Chiba's drawing corner esp. the last one where he drew the twin, and I'd like to see more of this corner. Plus, I want to see a corner where Yusuke/Daito/Haruna can join too^^
    If you'd like to see more interviews of the cast together, or anything else to be added in the MOVIE GALLERY. Just let me know! I'll help you request it in Japanese!

    2. You can definitely request what kind of extra footage you want to see on the DVD that will be released a few months later once the drama broadcast is over. I think, request in English would be fine, but if the request is detailed, then it's best to have it translated to Japanese, so the staff can understand the request better.
    I see some Japanese fans requested so that the DVD would include the making, NG scenes, etc. A fan even requested she want to see the manga's extra chapter where Tamaki and Kyoya switch souls to be made into a spinoff and included as the DVD's extra features! And then, suddenly Daito Shunsuke talked about wanting to have a spin-off episode where Tamaki-Kyoya switch souls in the fans meeting!! I hope this is not a coincidence!!! Onion XD

    3. If you like the musics you heard so far, in the live-action, please help me request for the Original Soundtrack CD to be released, in the Fans Message section! English request would totally be fine! I'm sure they'd understand just by the mention of "original soundtrack".
    Now, who wouldn't want that "Kyoya Theme" we heard in Ep5?? I mean, the producer even write in his diary that he loves that music too, that he randomly titled it "Kyoya no Teema Kyoku" (Kyoya's Theme Music)
    Including that, I also love a couple of new music tunes I heard in Ep6, esp. the Disney-like tune when Renge appeared! I've requested them to release the original soundtrack for sell, in Japanese, and they approved that msg, but I'm sure more requests from other fans wouldn't hurt, right? Yoroshiku! Onion Bows


    4. Should we make an effort of trying to get Ouran's widescreen movie to be premiered outside Japan, countries where we live?
    This is a question, because I'm not sure. But it just occured to me when I saw Japanese fans talked about this in 2ch. They said,

    "But, if the distributor is Sony Pictures Entertainment, I guess they're aiming international market as well, huh"
    "That's true! I thought of that too, since I saw so many English messages came from foreigners on the official site!"


    FYI, Sony Pictures is a film distributor in Japan that usually distribute Hollywood movies, they rarely take up local movies for business. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony_Pictures_Entertainment )

    Of course, if this is really their intention, then we'd be rejoicing with joy! Onion XD

    But is there anything we can do to make sure this would happen? Should we send letters to Japanese film distributors in our respective countries, or what? I'm not really familiar on how each country picks a Japanese film to be shown in the country. And each country might have different ways too. Anyone has any idea?

    1. In the Fans Message section of the official site, you can actually write your request and/or comments about the video clips in the MOVIE GALLERY of the official site. But please make sure you have it translated to Japanese first.
    Hmmm...I'm gonna do that. I wanna request they put up the video with the fan meeting and the Ouran movie announcement. I really wanna watch it badly- based on the interview, it's sounds fun! I'll get my japanese friend to translate it for me.

    2. You can definitely request what kind of extra footage you want to see on the DVD that will be released a few months later once the drama broadcast is over. I think, request in English would be fine, but if the request is detailed, then it's best to have it translated to Japanese, so the staff can understand the request better.

    I don't really want to request anything. I think I would like to see the behind-the-scenes footage, NG's and definitely the deleted scenes. If they put in the scene where Tamaki and Kyouya switch bodies...that'll be interesting. I couldn't read it much in the manga because I thought that chapter was so awkward and a Tamaki-like Kyouya is scary. But if it was live action version ...yeah, I think I could watch it.

    3. If you like the musics you heard so far, in the live-action, please help me request for the Original Soundtrack CD to be released, in the Fans Message section! English request would totally be fine! I'm sure they'd understand just by the mention of "original soundtrack".

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!...and YESSSS!!!! My fave songs were 'Friday Ma-Magic', the song that was playing when the twins were remembering their past events in the host club (episode 6) and of course, Kyouya's theme song. I'm going to be crying when I listen to that song.

    4. Should we make an effort of trying to get Ouran's widescreen movie to be premiered outside Japan, countries where we live?

    The movie is being made by Sony Pictures Entertainment, right? That movie production is international and well-known. I'm pretty sure the movie will air outside of Japan. As for where outside Japan...I don't know. No offense, but if it shows in the US, I hope they don't make an adaption of it- I love Ouran, but that's where I cross the line. Onion Yellow Card

    Hmm... I don't know how to ask them if they would air the movie abroad and which country. I'm currently studying in the Philippines and the people here are CRAZY over asian dramas. Whatever drama they show in japan, korea or taiwan, they would dubbed it in tagalog and air it here. The dramas they show here are You're Beautiful, Hana Kimi (2007 and taiwan), Boys Over Flowers...alot of dramas. Ouran is fairly new so it'll be a while before it airs here- but I'm 100% sure they will air it here. Also, if there is a really popular drama, they would actually send the actors from their country to come visit here (So far I've seen Wu Chun and the guy who plays Jeremy in 'You're Beautiful') SO if Ouran gets really popular here....*Please come host members! I'll be waiting! Crosses fingers!* I'm not sure about other countries, but that's what happens here in the Philippines.

    In the US (I live in Hawaii- I consider Hawaii my home). I don't think asian dramas are too popular. The only drama I heard there is 'Full House' and 'Heaven's Tree'. That's it. And of course, asian horror movies are very popular there too. They even make adaptions of it- like 'The Grudge', 'The Eye' etc. But like I said, I love Ouran but please, NO US ADAPTION.

    When I saw Japanese fans talked about this in 2ch. They said,

    "But, if the distributor is Sony Pictures Entertainment, I guess they're aiming international market as well, huh"
    "That's true! I thought of that too, since I saw so many English messages came from foreigners on the official site!"


    Reading this made me smile the most. This is solid proof that us foreigners can make a difference concerning Ouran. Hip Hip Hooray for us!!! Triumphant Tamaki

    I just wanted to quote you because I was glad to see even Japanese fans noticing our influx of English messages! Nice to see everyone's efforts being recognized.

    I checked the Funimation site and found out that they do license some live action films. If you go to this page: http://www.funimation.com/shows and scroll down to "All Shows", there is a "live action" section under genre. One of them is a movie based off of a manga/anime that they have dubbed before (Mushi-Shi). Should we try contacting them to release Ouran in the US?
