I really enjoyed reading this manga. The mixture of absurd humor and romance is well done and I loved the characters. The highlights were the last chapter of volume 12 and the complete the last volume. Even the epilogue (the last two chapters) was superb.

well the name speak for itself the first hald and mostly the beginning are awfully boring... the stuff that happen is already irratating and become annoying. you get my drift..naked + Keitaro = bloody punch/slash/kick/duel hit from any name from before..... well it get really good when you see the opposite fall for him... so we do get new and fresh ideas of enjoyment... its really good in the 2nd half but still have the corny stuff SO I WILL SAY THIS ONLY ONCE... if you don't have patience GET LOST before you say bad stuff about it

You know i've read alot of series, but I really fell in love with the characters in this one. This was my first complete series I bought in book version. Overall one of the best Harem comedies i've read and the series length is about perfect and the ending was great, unlike some other series that seem to end too abruptly or do not properly tie things up.

I wish I never read this series...JUST SO I COULD READ IT AGAIN WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT WOULD HAPPEN. Honestly this series is amazing, its funny, cute and romantic. Naru and Keitarou are probably the best couple I have ever seen in manga. Insanely good series, even people who aren't into the harem genre might enjoy it. This is one of my favorite manga.

Love Hina was one of the first manga I've ever read and the only one which was able to make me forget about the time completely. I was so into the story that when I started reading for the first time, I couldn't stop until i finished it which took like 24hrs without me realizing. Truly amazing. Although the storyline may not be fascinating or too appealing, its blend of romance and humor will surely be able to capture your heart.

This series was simply beautiful. I began by watching the anime and then later reading the manga, both of which were excellent. Though there were times when this manga dragged out, I still feel that the manga was too short because I really enjoyed reaing it. This manga presents a humorous, yet beautiful romance story that was well presented. I'm really surprised I was interested in this manga because I usually like more shounen-based stories, but this story is now my favorite.

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.

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.
