A man from Japan was sitting in his basement one day thinking of his next big idea. Suddenly, he got a call from his gay cousin, and he told him that he recently got engaged to a nice man from Osaka. The Japanese man happened to be extremely homophobic and reacted to it negatively. In order to vent his anger, he began drawing the most hurtful stereotypes for gay people he could think of. Luckily, his mind wasn't too warped, so the most hurtful thing he could come up with "OMG SO FABULOUS." After his venting was over with, he began drawing the first chapter of his new manga series.
A week later, he showed the idea to the CEO of the publishing company. He looked at it and said, "What the fuck is this shit?" After endless bitching for 2 hours straight, the man packed up and left the office. As he was leaving, his hateful drawing flew out of his briefcase. The CEO took one look at it and said, "Wait a minute!"
The man said, "What is it?"
The CEO replied, "These characters
they're perfect! I want you to make a manga about these guys!"
The man asked, "Are you fucking serious?"
The CEO replied, "Yes! This is a marketer's dream right here! I want the first chapter done by next week."
The man then proceeded to return home and commit hari-kiri in front of his own dog.
Another writer signed on to the project and proceeded to turn the manga into a worldwide phenomenon.
And that, my friends, is how Ouran High School Host Club was born.
