Ep 2 – “The Job of a High School Host!” / “Kōkōsei Hosuto no O-shigoto” (高校生ホストのお仕事)
The Host Club finds out that one of their regular customers, Kanako Kasugazaki, is having trouble with her fiancé, Toru Suzushima, who is planning to leave to study abroad. The group cooks up a plan to help them reunite at an upcoming Dance. As part of the club’s plan, they make Haruhi dress as a girl to approach Toru pretending to be an admirer. Toru tells her that he’s flattered but that he cares for someone else. Kanako finds them together and flees, in tears. Toru catches up to her and they reaffirm their feelings for one another. At the end of the party, a “queen” is chosen to receive a kiss on the cheek from Tamaki. However, just as Kanako is chosen as the queen, the twins Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin announce that Haruhi will be giving the kiss. Tamaki, realizing this will be Haruhi’s first kiss, runs to stop her and accidentally pushes her, so that instead of a kiss on the cheek Haruhi kisses Kanako on the lips, embarrassing them both. Despite this the evening is a success with Kanako and Toru back together.
