Welcome to Club Mankai! Part 1
[Street: Rainy]
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Ugh, dammit...
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
(It's so pathetic of me to go losin' in fights. Look at me, all beat-up and shit... I'm no better than a giant piece of trash.)
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
(I'm so damn...dizzy...)
??? Hey.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
...?
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Are you...the reaper? No, you can't be. You're glowing so brightly, and your voice is so deep and impressive... You must be an angel.
??? Did you hit your head that hard? Literally what part of me looks like an angel?
??? Do you have anywhere to call home?
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
...No.
??? You want to come with me, then?
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
(He's willing to take me in? He doesn't even know me, though... But his aura is so warm...)
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
(This must be a meeting of fate! Yeah, that has to be it!)
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Yes, sir!
??? Pfft. Look at you. You're nodding so hard, your head's about to fall off. What are you, a dog?
[Mankai Host Club Lounge]
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Whoa...! What is this place? It's so bright and sparkly in here...
??? This is Club Mankai. I used to be this club's top dog op until recently.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
What do you mean by that?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
My name's Sakyo Furuichi, and I used to hold the title of this club's number one host for years. I retired and became the club's owner a while ago, though.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
This is a host club?!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Well, look at you in that suit. You don't look half bad. It's one of my hand-me-downs, but it's still in a good condition, so you can have it.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Th-thanks for the offer, but I couldn't possibly accept such a nice suit...
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
I said you could have the suit, but I never said it would be for free. You're a grown-ass man. I'm sure you can work for something as simple as a suit.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Huh...?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
I'm telling you to aim for the top position here at this club.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Wh-whaaat?!
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
(And that's the tale of how I suddenly became a host.)
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
(I want to work hard in order to repay the debt I owe the Boss, but the thing is...)
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
I don't know the first thing about bein' a host...
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
You don't have to freak out. I'm not going to just throw you at a table and make you fend for yourself.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
There have been a bunch of guys trying to aim for the top ever since I retired, so just watch how they work and learn from them.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Y-yes, sir!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Steal any technique you can and up your repertoire. I'll even be extra nice to you today and explain what they're doing while they deal with costumers.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Thank you very much!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
All right, pay attention to that table over there.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
U-um... Thanks so much for...uh, coming today!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Ehehe! I'm so glad to see all of you!
Customer Ooh, you two are sooo cute!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
That's Sakuma and Minagi. Both of them are newcomers, and Minagi's a bigger mess than everyone else.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
But there are customers who prefer fresh-faced and awkward kids like them over smooth-talking veterans.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Huh...Okay.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Minagi actually used to be part of our kitchen staff. We hired him as a host because his family's tight on money and he wanted to earn more for them.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
He's still a naive punk himself, saying lofty things like wanting to let his younger brothers eat their fill of good food.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Hmph. Well, I can't fault him for much. His determination really gets to you after a while.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Sakuma's bright disposition and innocence is what naturally draws people to him. It'd be good for him to just stay the way he is.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
If I had to describe him, I'd say he's like a fully-painted figurine. You know what I mean, right?
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Uh...?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Did you have work today, too? Good job! It's amazing how hard you work every day!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
You don't like bell pepers? I can teach you a nice dish that doesn't use any, then! I have lots of little brothers at home, so I'm good at this kind of stuff.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
You want another bottler of wine? Are you sure? Thanks so much! Ahaha... I don't know what to do with myself. I'm so happy, and my heart's beating so fast...
Customer Aah... I can feel the stress from work just melting away. Seeing your smiles is like basking in the sun...
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Let's move onto the next table.
Itaru profile
Itaru
I've been waiting for you. I really wanted to see you again.
Itaru profile
Itaru
Tell me... Did you want to see me, too? I'd be so happy of you really did... Well?
Itaru profile
Itaru
Haha. Are you blushing? You're so cute.
Customer Kyaaah!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
That's Chigasaki. He's aiming to be Mankai's number one host, and he uses his looks to drag in as many customers as he can.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Pay attention to how he uses casual glances, smiles, and suggestive words. People literally fall for him hook, line, and sinker due to those weapons of his.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
That guys spends every yen he earns on games. He literally buys every single title available. I guess it's still a means to an end...
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
The host sitting next to him, however, is the complete opposite of him.
Masumi profile
Masumi
What? Do whatever you want. If you want another glass, then just order one.
Masumi profile
Masumi
I'm not even here for you. I don't care what you think. You still want to talk?
Customer Oh my god, I just can't get enough of how cool and standoffish you are!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Usui basically treats all his customers like crap and doesn't try to curry favor with them. Well, we've got some masochistic guests who are into that, though.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
The world's full of all kind of people, huh...?
Citron profile
Citron
Oh, I do know that idiom! It is to 'throw twigs before pigs'!
Customer Ahaha! Citron, that's completely wrong! The phrase is 'cast pearls before swine'!
Citron profile
Citron
Ooh! So that is it! Japanese is so very difficult!
Customer You're just so cute! Aah, you make me so happy!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Don't be fooled. That's actually his technique. He plays it up like he has the shoddiest Japanese in the world, but he's completely fluent in private.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Just today, he spewed out, 'What joy it brings me to be able to work amidst laughter that resembles a refreshing breeze on a beautiful day' like it was nothing.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
HE said that?!
Chikage profile
Chikage
Oh, you're here. I was wondering if you would come today.
Customer I-I did!
Chikage profile
Chikage
Let's go over there for more privacy. I can tell you all sorts of secrets, and we can keep them to ourselves...just you and me.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
What about that guy? What's his strategy?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
...
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Uh, Boss?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
I can't go into the particulars with him, but...just beware of him. Try not to get to close to him.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
...?!
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
(Yikes... It'd probably be smart to heed his warning...)



































































Welcome to Club Mankai! Part 2
[Mankai Host Club Lounge]
Customer Ahahaha! No way!
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Huh? Why does that table only have guests?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Look closer. The one sitting in the middle is their host, Rurikawa.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Wait, you mean that dainty lookin' kid's their host?!
Yuki profile
Yuki
Oh, Your bottle's empty! Let's order another for you. You're all still up for more drinks, right?
Customer Of course! Oh, I want to order a platter of fruit, too.
Yuki profile
Yuki
Really? Yay! I've been wanting to eat some! Hmm, how about I feed you some as a treat, then?
Customer Aaah! Yes, please!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Rurikawa keeps the mood as nice and light as a girls' night out, and the customers keep extending their stay because of that. It's quite a strategy, really.
Muku profile
Muku
Thank you so much for coming again today, my princess. Please, come this way.
Muku profile
Muku
Your dress is so beautiful, and you look wonderful in it! Hehe. I can't tear my eyes away from you...
Customer Th-thank you!
Muku profile
Muku
I wish I could whisk you away in a pumpkin carriage and bring you to a lovely dance party... How amazing would that be?
Customer I-I'd gladly do with you!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
That's Sakisaka. He acts like a prince and treats all his customers like princesses. He'll make anyone, young or old, feel like royalty, so he's very popular.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Wow! That's really smart!
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
Yay! Okies, here we go! Let's get some champange flowing in here!
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
Cheers to our meeting, cheers to tonight! I love all of you, my princesses! Yay! Yay! It's champagne time! Whoo!
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Holy crap! Is that an actual champagne tower?!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
The one that's hollering his head off is Miyoshi. He's like pure energy incarnate. His act's pretty standard for a host, and, well, it's fun watching him.
Kazunari profile
Kazunari
Whoo! That's suuuper tasty! Thanks so much, y'all's! I can't wait to party with you again!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
By the way, that's the standard cheer for when a customer orders a champagne tower. Everyone here can do it, so you'd better memorize it, too.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Does that mean you can do it too, Boss?!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Obviously.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
(Man, I wanna see him singing that!)
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
What's with all the customers grouped up over here? Who's standing in the middle...?
Customer Tenmaaa!
Customer Aah! Tenma, you're so hot today!
Tenma profile
Tenma
Hmph. Of course I am. Who do you think I am? Be grateful that I'm letting you drink next to me.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Ack, my eyes! Is that guy seriously sparkling?!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
That's just Sumeragi's popularity being manifested. He acts all high-and-mighty, but it's justified. He's the real deal, and customers love him.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
But that's all just an act. Just sit and watch, and you'll see his true nature soon enough.
Tenma profile
Tenma
Y-you saw me then?! What? No, o-of course I wasn't lost!
Tenma profile
Tenma
I was just looking for my attendant since they got separated from me!
Customer Aww, Tenma, you're sooo cute!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
The difference between the front he puts up and his true self is like no other. Seriously, no one else can even try to imitate that lethal weapon of his.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Guess there are some techniques that are impossible to steal...
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Yeah. There's someone else like that other than Sumeragi, too.
Misumi profile
Misumi
Okay, everyone, it's time to pray. Let's all focus our energy on this miraculous triangle...
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
What's going on over there? The atmosphere around them doesn't really seem to fit the mood of a host club...
Misumi profile
Misumi
Triangles save all... If you believe in them, you, too, will be saved...
Customer Oh, Misumi! Triangles are so wonderful!
Customer What a beautiful triangle! I'll believe in triangles until the end of time...!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
There's nothing you can learn from him. Let's move on.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Uh, right...
Kumon profile
Kumon
Juzaaa! Juza, I love you! You're the coolest person in the world!
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Wha...?
Juza profile
Juza
This cake's good. You should have some, Kumon.
Kumon profile
Kumon
You'd share your cake with me?! Oh man, Juza you're so nice! You're the world's kindest and handsomest man EVER! You're the best!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Those two brothers work as pair here. The younger one, Kumon is completely obsessed with his older brother, Juza, and does nothing but tail after him.
Juza profile
Juza
This chocolate's tasty, too...
Kumon profile
Kumon
Ah... You look so refined when you're eating sweets... And your coolness isn't even slightly marred even though you have chocolate stuck to your mouth!
Customer Sibling love is the best...! Just watching them makes me feel all warm and happy inside...
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
(That kind of act sells, too? Aw man, I wish I could do something like that with the boss...)
Banri profile
Banri
Are you even servin' your customers properly? You're a damn awful host.
Juza profile
Juza
What'd you say, asshole?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Heh. Looks like they're putting on another one of their famous shows.
Customer Aaah! Juza and Banri are going to start an act soon!
Banri profile
Banri
All you do is sit around an' eat. Exactly what part of that's entertaining for our guests, huh?
Juza profile
Juza
What I do is still better than how you jus' run your mouth like you don't know how to keep it shut.
Customer Oh my god! Look at them grabbind each other's shirts! That's sooo hot!
Customer Watching them go after each other like that is so bad for my heart! But so good! Ugh!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Some of our customers really like it when our hosts get into fights. Their actual distaste for each other is what makes those two so popular together.
Banri profile
Banri
Tch!
Customer Banri!
Banri profile
Banri
Oh, you came. Wait, what's wrong? You look so tired.
Banri profile
Banri
Don' tell me you were pushin' yourself at work again. C'mon, you gotta stop doin' that and take better care of yourself.
Customer I knooow, but I just end up working extra hard every time I think about how I'll get to see you!
Banri profile
Banri
Heh, thanks for always doin' your best for me.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
He may look rough on the outside, but he's actually incredibly good at paying attention to the little things and being mindful of others. That kid's got talent.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
A lot of customers go to him for his looks and stay for his nonchalant and smooth style of flirting.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Hmm, okay... So attention to detail and mindfulness is important... I'd better write this all down.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Okay, so our next table should be...
Customer Mommy, listen to meee!
Customer Ehehe! Mom, I wanna eat some quiche today!
Customer Mama, pet my heat, pwease!
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
('Mom'? Who could they be calling tha-?)
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Wait, they're calling THAT guy 'Mom'?! The guy who's towering over everyone and looks like he can bench press them all at the same time?!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
That's Fushimi. He has an overwhelmingly nurturing personality by nature, so he plays the motherly type around here.
Omi profile
Omi
Come on, you don't have to pout. Here, I'll pet you on the head, okay?
Omi profile
Omi
You want quiche? Sure thing. We can order that. I baked a lot of them before we opened today.
Omi profile
Omi
Hm? What's wrong? Do you feel left out? It's okay, come here.
Customer Mama!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Guests love him because they can relive their innocent childhood days when they're around him.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
I-I don't even know how that works, but I guess people like it, huh...? Wow...
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Guess I should write that down, too...




































































Welcome to Club Mankai! Part 3
[Mankai Host Club Lounge]
Customer I'm going to order another bottle of champagne.
Customer Oh, I want to put in an order for some chicken and cake, too!
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Whoa, that table's full of big spenders!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
The two hosts over there used to work for our rival, God Club, but they decided to come to us instead.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
The taller one is Takato, and he's got the whole 'number one host' act down pat. He's well-versed at handling customers.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
The other one is Nanao. That kid can't even begin to hide his desire for acknowkedgement and popularity, but is honest nature's actually his selling point.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
That works as a selling point...?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Honesty and transparency can work in a host's favor sometimes.
Tasuku profile
Tasuku
Would it be all right if I sit a little closer to you? The only person I want you looking at right now is me...
Tasuku profile
Tasuku
I want to see you even in my dreams tonight. I want to know more about you...and for you to know just as much about me.
Tasuku profile
Tasuku
I can't help being selfish and needy when it comes to you... It's just so hard to resist your loveliness
Customer Oh, Tasuku... You're so wonderful...
Taichi profile
Taichi
Wait, really?! You think I look cooler than before? Yesss! Oh man, I don't even know what to do with myself, I'm so happy!
Taichi profile
Taichi
I gotta keep this up and really try to be the most popular host around here! I might even be someone's favorite one of these days!
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
(There's so much more to being a host than I thought there is...)
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
(Huh, what's with that guy over there? He just looks like any ol' Joe at first glance...)
Tsumugi profile
Tsumugi
I wouldn't have expected to find such a pretty flower in a place like this. Grow up nice and big and beautiful, little blossom.
Tsumugi profile
Tsumugi
Hehe. Such a beautiful smile bloomed on your face. Could you smile a bit more for me? I'd like to keep admiring it, if you don't mind.
Customer O-oh, Tsumugi...!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Tsukioka goes for a more rustic, down-to-earth approach, and that miming he's doing like he's watering plants with a watering can? That's his signature move.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
He may look young, but he's actually a veteran in this business. He takes good care of the younger workers, but he's clearly hiding something behind that smile.
Homare profile
Homare
How my heart sparkles and flutters and dances! Hmm, between us, our memories are like sweet drunken strawberries!
Homare profile
Homare
Ah, you are just like an ukulele today... Daybreak in spring, in Milano, oh buono! Bravo, bravo...
Customer I have no idea if you're complimenting me or insulting me, but thank you for your poem, Homare!
Hisoka profile
Hisoka
Zzz... Zzz...
Customer Hisoka looks like an angel when he's sleeping! His sweet lovely face makes me want to buy another bottle of wine just to support him!
Hisoka profile
Hisoka
Hmm... Thanks... Have another...glass... Zzz...
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Arisugawa has quite a number of patrons for his poems, but Mikage actually earns quite a pretty penny by just sleeping.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
What?! How can he get away with that?!
Azuma profile
Azuma
It's rather noisy in here isn't it? Should we go somewhere quieter so we can chat without distractions?
Azuma profile
Azuma
You don't have to be nervous. I'll make sure you'll feel nice and good... Shall we go?
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
W-wait, isn't he still on the clock? He's leaving the club with his customer!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Don't worry about Yukishiro. He often spends the night with his customers, so that's normal. He earns a lot for us since many of his customers are rich.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
There are too many hosts in this place... I'm starting to lose track of them all!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
We also have two other hosts who aren't here yet. They're in the same boat as you and will be starting for us soon, too.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
One of them is my mentee, and he'll be using his plethora of knowledge on makeup as his gig. The other will be the world's first android host.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
I don't even know what to think of those two, but they sound really formidable...!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Hello there.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Huh? Who's this lady?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
What do you think you're doing here? It'll be caos in here if Usui sees you.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I couldn't help myself! I wanted to come see who this new host you scouted is like.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
O-oh, uh! I'm Sakoda!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Oh, sorry for not introducing myself. I'm Izumi, and the owner of the club is my father.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
She's in line to take over this place next.
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
And she's also the one who brought out and helped polish the best traits from every single one of the hosts here.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Wow, really?!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
I was only able to bloom into the number one host here because she suggested I break out of the mold and take on the role of a strict, scolding character.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
That sounds so badass!
Izumi profile
Izumi
How about you, Sakoda? What kind of host would you like to become?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
After seeing so many different types of hosts and their strategies of war, you should have an idea, right? What kind of battle plan will you take up?
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
I...!
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
I'm still new and have no idea what to do yet, unlike everyone else...
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
But I want to do my best to repay you for you kindness, Boss!
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Boss Lady, you gotta help me! Make it so that I can bloom and flourish in this host club! Please!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Sakoda...
Izumi profile
Izumi
Don't you worry about a thing! I'll make sure to bring you to full bloom here!
[Street: Morning]
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
After we finish our rounds checking in with our regulars, we have to-
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
...
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Hey, Sakoda! The hell're you spacing out for?
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Y-yikes, sorry, Boss! Didn't mean to!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Ugh... The hell were you even thinking about?
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Well I'm kinda foggy on the details already, but I feel like I had a really incredible dream this morning...
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
So that wasn't enough for you and now you're daydreaming too, are you?
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
I-it really was an unbelievable dream, though, Boss!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Enough of that nonsense. Don't forget that you need to wear a suit for our next event, got it?
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Oh, yeah! Yes, sir!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Actually, do you even have a suit?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
If you don't mind getting one of y hand-me-downs, there's an outfit I was thinking of giving to you since I don't wear it anymore.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
...?!
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
D-does it happen to include a leopard print shirt and a chrysanthemum corsage...?!
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Leopard print?
Sakyo profile
Sakyo
Why the hell would I have a shirt like that, idiot? Of course not.
Sakoda profile
Sakoda
Y-yeah, you're right! That was such a silly question! Ahahaha... Phew.

Story Clear
