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 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.......

It not the best out there but it alright. The story line was good and I like the charectors. But when you start reading the manga. The charector look too young for there age. But when it get to the end of the story. They do look like there age. The other down side is some part they try to be funny, but it not. Now everything else is just find. I can't give it real high score. So it get a 7. Please don't get mad.

This manga is amazing and even more. Word can't discribe how much i love this series. The drawing is great and the the plot was well thought of. the ecchi, comedy adn romance is jsut really entertaining. This will always be my fav manga. And the Akamatsu's previous and presents works are also just as great, bt Love Hina is the best of them all. ^^b

The manga's great with comedy and all, but the romance was too serious in the last few volumes to make it funny. For those who don't like seeing ecchi too much, I would not advise this manga...

Love Hina is a solid series, pretty much everything you would expect out of a harem manga (especially since it set the standard for harem manga to follow). However, some of the gags are extremely repetitive. Namely main character sees girl naked/nearly naked, then girl hits him so hard he flies into the stratosphere. Yeah, it's funny the first few times they do this gag, but then it happens (what seems like) every chapter and in the exact same situation (usually Keitaro walking into the bath when a girl is in there). If you can handle that though (I could easily, it only started to bother me in the last 30 chapters or so) I would definitely recommend this series, it has great characters, romance, and a happy ending. I'm kind of a sucker for happy endings.

tl;dr overused gags keep this series from being a 10/10. Read it if you like romance/harem.

This manga by far is the best of this genre. I read Ichigo 100% first, which is suppose to be as good or better then love hina, srry to those who think so in my opinion love hina blows it away. ( for those who haven't read ichigo 100% you should go and read its good bigrazz) Its true love hina is full of the main character getting un real beat downs from all of the diffrenet girls but hey to me thats funny shit, and of course its mostly ecchi things that happen to him and get him his beat downs. Well if you put that aside the whole story line was good, the growing up aspect did not compare to Ichigo, the character depth was a bit shallow but it made up for it in comedy. The ending was good not as dramatic as ichigo but hey this is suppose to be a romantic comedy what do expect. All in all it was a great, deffenetly what other manga of the genre need to strive for i give it 9.4
