"The series is well known for breaking the fourth wall with the audience, while also including and parodying many subcultures found within Japan. The setting of a host club lends to the thematic use of Yaoi (“boy’s love”), Yuri (“girl’s love”) and cross-dressing aspects of the overarching Otaku culture, which refers to people who have a keen interest in all things uniquely Japanese in origin and style. Being new to this sort of media, I can see how this will alienate some Western audiences, however it did not do so for myself. Read on to find out if this anime really is for you."
