Both the anime(i just glanced at at for confirmation) and manga are bad but the manga is a bit better done. Just listen to me and Bennett the Sage. His Love Hina reviews are very funny and insightful. We both sure hate Akamatsu equally. I though dislike Negima way more. Me and ecchi/harem will never be friends. No character development, no romance, no dating, no sex, thus no service i always say. I actually started to dislike the manga half way through when i read it 10 years ago as a teenager. The art and the very first stories are the only saving grace.
To think i actually played my own money for this and then completed the series. Ah the sins of youth.
But i learned and the harem genre has been dead to me ever since. Thank you Love Hina for that.
Mangas about an actual harem like Ooku i still read though. At least this series is not porn in disguise, just bland and boring.

Though not perfect throughout as it had its ups and downs in story telling and the ending though not rushed felt like a race to get through, its well worth the read. It's one of those stories like Ichigo 100% and I''s that's on my must read list for this type of manga.

This might have been one of the best if not the best manga I have ever read.

It started off interesting and around chapter 20 I found myself connected with the characters and couldn't stop reading. Actually I've tried to read manga from this ones time and I just couldn't get into any of them. That is the reason why I was a little skeptical before reading this one. I found that there was no need to because this manga is a classic.

The best part about this manga was the ending. A lot of mangas just can't come to a great ending but this one did not once but twice between the ending and the epilogue type chapters.

I would recommend this manga to anyone. You will love it and you can thank me later.

i loved it. it's my third favorite manga and i love the fact that the ending shows the couple past college!! and for those looking for a better manga, i suggest suzuka and ichigo 100%. love hina is definitely a must-read for anyone who loves romance.

In my opinion I believe that Love Hina truly started the era of Slice of Life and Becoming of Age manga. However, like many good manga, it started getting too ridiculous and it took a very long time for Akamatsu Ken to bring it back on track (if he ever did). Had 100 chapters been cut, it truly would have been a masterpiece.

TuaRal more or less nailed it with his review a couple pages back. The beginning of this manga was (although kinda annoying) pretty good. The story was compact, it flowed well, it was interesting, and the characters occasionally did things you totally wouldn't see coming.

And then... somewhere around chapter 60... everything went crazy. People started doing the most random things, arcs come out of nowhere just for the sake of being there, no one ever seems to sit down and talk anymore, and the weirdest stuff happens in the name of comedy. And it's not funny. It's just strange. And kind of random.

Plus some of the characters are completely annoying - at least in the beginning. Kanoko, Kei's sister, completely grated on me for the longest time. So did Otohime, for that matter.

It's kinda cool that it's such an old manga, but I wouldn't label it a 'classic' by any stretch of the imagination. It was awesome in that it was a huge coming-of-age story for Keitaro, the little wuss, but it also felt like any emotional depth he gained, Naru lost... so it ends up about the same in the end. I forgive it though, just because they had moments of really intense cuteness. D'awww.

Was fun for a couple of moments, but got repetitive and boring so very very fast. Always the same emotions, clichés, stupid plot development, super-long-stretched out relationship development... Can't say I recommend this one. This < Ai Kora < Ichigo 100%

This series might have held up well at its time, but now it felt very repetetive, i think i went through the same scenario at least twice. Though when it did something new it was fun, it sadly suffers in the end though, as it kinda was one of the first ones out there doing this kind of story. Its a classic but i dont think its great its just ok.
