Is Ouran High School Host Club Originally from America?

I just recently bought a dvd box set with all the episodes from OHSHC and i saw that most of what was written was written in english. I then checked it out on wikipedia, and it says that the anime is licensed by an American and an Australian company, but no japanese companies. This may be a retarded question, but now im curious ._.

    It was made in Japan. So there is no need for it to be licensed in Japan. A license is essentially rent. Both American and Australian companies rented the anime from Japan so they could dub and sell it in North America and Australia. Japan has no need to rent to itself--it owns the darn thing!
