Haruhi also has a deeper voice than other female students, has short hair and dresses androgynously most of the time, she is not easily recognized as female.
Although she may be unflappable under normal circumstances, she suffers from Brontophobia (a fear of thunder), which terrifies her to the point of paralysis.
She is best known for her breakout hit series, Ouran High School Host Club, which appeared in serial form in Hakusensha's La La magazine between September 2002 and November 2010.
Renge transfers to Ouran Academy to meet her real-life Miyabi and, in the process, sets herself up as the Host Club's manager.
The episode introduces the French otaku, Renge Houshakuji, who proclaims herself Kyoya's fiancée upon seeing his photograph and noting his striking resemblance to Miyabi, a character from the dating-sim game, Uki Doki Memorial.
Oddly, Uki Doki Memorial's six male characters resemble Ouran Academy's six male hosts; Miyabi resembling Kyoya.
Renge's father, Reynard Houshakuji, enters and comments on her fascination with the game, but allows her to do as she pleases.
