The Job of a High School Host! is the second episode of the anime series. The episode depicts a typical Ouran Host Club adventure as it follows the romantic ups and downs of regular customer, Kanako Kasugazaki. Kanako, it seems, has what the hosts call the Host-Hopping disease. As part of their scheme to cure her of her commitment-phobia and to reunite Kanako with her fiance, Toru Suzushima, Haruhi Fujioka is blackmailed into learning how to waltz, cosplay as a girl and gets her first kiss at a dance party. Tamaki Suoh is frustrated, though he doesn't know why.
Episode SummaryMusic Room #3, she finds it decorated as a tropical paradise with the cosplay of the day being Balinese royalty. When Haruhi questions Kyoya Ootori about it, he tells her that while Tamaki makes all policy decisions, planting ideas in Tamaki's head helps the process, leading to Haruhi's realization that Kyoya truly runs the club and calls him "the Shadow King" to herself.
England. After Toru leaves, Haruhi says that Kanako and Toru seem "kinda close," which Kanako vehemently denies and hurriedly leaves, herself. Mitsukuni Haninozuka aka Honey reveals that the two are engaged with Kyoya adding that it has been this way ever since they were children. Tamaki announces that it is the responsibility of the Host Club "to make every girl happy" and reunite the estranged couple.
Tamaki announces that the club is sponsoring a Dance Party the following week and Haruhi's guests fantasize about dancing with her under the moonlight. Kanako, a regular Host Club customer dumps Tamaki to christen Haruhi as her new favorite. The Host Club members describe Kanako as having the Host-Hopping disease, which causes its victims to regularly switch from one Host to another. Tamaki's jealousy results in his insisting that Haruhi once more dress like a girl. Haruhi refuses, saying she can pay back her debt more quickly as a Host. Tamaki then refers to Kyoya as "Mommy" for the first time in the series as he bemoans their difficult heroine. Hikaru Hitachiin inquires if Haruhi knows how to dance, to which Haruhi replies that she isn't interested in attending the Dance Party. Tamaki blackmails her into learning the waltz and attending the event by threatening to demote her back to errand boy, if she doesn't.
A week later, the Dance Party commences with Tamaki welcoming their guests. Kyoya announces that at the end of the evening, one lucky lady will be declared "Queen" with her reward being a kiss on the cheek from Tamaki. The twins chide Haruhi for being less than enthusiastic to which she replies that she doesn't have much experience with parties having only attended local neighborhood festivals. Kyoya excuses her lack of experience and suggests that she have a bite to eat. When Haruhi inquires if there's ootoro (fancy tuna), Tamaki immediately orders it for her. Kanako arrives and, as part of Tamaki's master plan, Haruhi is swept off the dance floor to be "costumed" as a girl. Tamaki sees her as "herself" and is lovestruck. Kyoya foreshadows his "secret" plan and Haruhi is sent off wobbling on high heels to meet Toru.
