Hey everyone~

I just bought a few volumes of Ouran High School Host Club. So far, I'm enjoying it just as much as the anime ^^

HOWEVER. In some parts of the manga words are just replaced with random symbols (#$%@, etc)

I looked on some online fan translations and they had them too.

Does anyone know what these squiggles are? I'm so confused ><
I googled and googled and no one else has even mentioned it. Probably it's something obvious that I'm silly enough to overlook...

Any help is appreciated!

I would have to look in the original to make 100% sure but it looks like censoring, the same thing we do in English to hide swear or rude words. The context leads me to think its that too.

Thanks Houyou. The thought did cross my mind, but I really want to be sure. It could be swear words, it could be anything! Lol.
Oh and that's not the only place it pops up. It's in random places all over the book, where (I don't think) swear words could go.
Maybe it is. Maybe I'm making a big deal of it. Razz

In this case I think they're talking about male genitalia?

It might also be appearing where the author simply could not be bothered or felt it was unimportant to make up names for background characters who will appear in a single frame, tAre there any other examples? It probably appears like that in the original too.

I guess it does. I'll try not to think of it (once I see something I don't understand, I HAVE TO KNOW, y'know? ^^)
Thanks Houyou~
