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

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.

My first manga. I read it back in 2001, and today it is still the one i'm most fond of. There this special charm to it that no manga can hope to achieve. You really fall in love (in a healthy way) with the characters and the ending is so fulfilling. The art is very good, specially for a 1999 manga. The settings are perfect.
The characters are the best part, you will grow to like them so much... They are unique in their own ways, and unlike in other harem mangas, they just don't fall in love with the main character first sight, and they are not all love interest. The main character is a bit lame, sometimes, but he is not detestable or a complete wimp dork like most main characters in other mangas; you will even hope that he everything goes alright for him. And the romance. Oh the romance. It is so sweet, it's one of the things that makes this series on it's own level. You will really feel warm when you finish reading this. Oh, not to spoil but the ending is probably the only ending that I thought that was perfect. If only, I wish he didn't become so "seta" like.

Just read it. It's the only complete manga I've re-read after so many hundreds of others in 8 years, and I did it thrice.

Love Hina

Love Hina was one of my first mangas and I must say: boy did I enjoy it!

The story is told in a way that keeps you clinging for more, the sudden changes in the main course are enjoyable (makes you wonder if it's going where you expect it to). Although there are quite a few "nude" scenes, they are meant that way for the story to have more resources (many of them had me laughing), and I think the result of it is quite nice. If you are easily touched by emotional scenes, you'll definitely be moved at one point or another.

I admit the story and characters are not the greatest, but Love Hina has a certain charm that no other manga of it's kind (that I've read) has. Overall a great manga. The anime is good as well, but leaves some important things out. Deserves a 10.

Simply a great manga, there's laughter, there's romance, slight "fan service" and overall a happy story/plot! . My only complaint is that it had to end so quickly, It left me craving for more (it still does today).

The story starts slow, but the plot picks up and eventually rockets to the end. Anyone who's interested in mangas should at least give this a try. Worthy of a 10. Go Akamatsu!

The best manga ever, Akamatsu is great, i like his char design very very much............
It's not something like someone alway said:
"fan service has turned manga into porno mags and this is a prime example!"
"Personally I didn't think there was any story to it, it's just a manga with a bunch of naked girls every five pages."
I thought they were just looking for every pages with naked girls and didn't read anything........bunch of shit
If u are not 17+, don't read it because u can't understand it....find another ecchi manga or whatever u want.......

Funny and ecchi, so if that is your thing, there is plenty of that around. My biggest complaint is that the main character, Naru, is the worst of the bunch. She is wishy washy and a huge pain in the butt. Keitaro should have picked any of the other girls, it would have been better.

I thought it would be funnier than this and instead of focusing on the story, it seemed they were just focusing on the nudity and sexual parts of it. This manga left me disgusted in the end. Personally I didn't think there was any story to it, it's just a manga with a bunch of naked girls every five pages.
