This has to be my best (and old if you consider 11 years ago) romance manga. I like how the story progresses with the guy start out geeky but eventually grows mature and the girl didn't act like a complete...... you get it. Though the constant interruptions during the love scenes and constant stereotypical "get peeked, get punched" were kinda getting old. But the story did continue with not much fillers. **SPOILER** At the end, in my opinion, I wish they concentrate on the wedding instead of introducing a new character which had a useless role/part. Other that that, I can be picky person but I definitely gives this a 10/10

Fantastic Manga.. one of my favourites

Love Hina is one of the best manga's of it's genres or any for that matter. The story is bizarre and hilarious. Even with all the comedy this manga has a real deep romantic story to it which is perfect. One moment you can have two people about to kiss in the moonlight...only to be stopped by well read it to find out!!
Great fun and Great romance.

It has a great story that will make you fall in love with everyone in the it. The characters are one of the most awesome group i have ever read about. Every character is developed greatly and thoughtfully, and everyone has a purpose. It's hard to pick a favorite when everyone is so damn awesome and you'll love everything about them.

The art is also great for the story. It's well drawn and detailed, yet it looks simple and sort of unrealistic, but that's what makes this manga perfect since this manga its self is bizarre at times smile. It does have ecchi moments but it doesn't take away from the romantic and comedy side of the manga (it is really hard to put it in words)

All in all, with a fantastic storyline, one of my favorite cast of characters, perfect romance, bizarrely hilarious humor, great artwork, all put into one makes this manga a total knockout. This is a must read for anyone who read romance/comedies (with a bit of ecchi), or even if it's not. this is a great read which many will come to love.

Good art, good story, good characters, but there is still something missing, maybe it's the protagonist, which makes it a bit stupid.
Well, but i have read many romance mangas so far and for romance-fans a must read!

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.

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.

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%

I read this about 2 and half years ago, and I gave it a 10, but now that I think about it... About 90% of the manga was a 10, the rest was either Ken Akamatsu not knowing how end his series or he had some sort of stupid meaning behind it.
(There is no need for a Spoiler Alert but If you haven't read this and you don't Like Spoiler's don't read this although skip to the last Paragraph)

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The ending is what you'd expect Keitaru and ____ are ____ and they are very ____. Although that doesn't seem like such a big deal, It's as the Anime calls it "Love Hina Again" a shoujo manga basically towards the last 10% of the manga or so. So it's ___ trying to go after ___. The most frustrating thing is that the second of the aforementioned ____ has completely changed from the beginning of the Manga, and it's very depressing and misleading to those who read the manga and enjoyed it, only to find that the first 90% was pure BS and unnecessary. I give it a 10 - 1 for the Horrible 10% and that equals 9.


All in all if you want a GREAT read, read this, just if you want skip the last 20-30 chapters or so (Don't remember really) and Imagine the way you would like it to end because to me it was lacking. Anyway enjoy and Have a great day, 9!
